Meow! My name is Mara
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Orange Or Red Tabby||Age:||Young|
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
DOB June 17, 2011. Please meet Mara, an intelligent, playful, frisky and very affectionate short haired orange tabby from Nairobi, Kenya. Mara has a very beautiful spotted orange coat with a bushy ringed tail, and is easily one of the most beautiful cats we’ve ever seen! Mara was a stray who was born in June 2011 and spayed in October 2011. Her current owners adopted Mara in September 2011, and brought her back to Canada with them this past December. All her shots are up to date, and she was most recently seen by a vet in April, 2013. They share: "Sadly, we now need to find her a new home as we have moved to a small apartment in Copenhagen, Denmark. We fear she would not thrive in such a confined space, especially as we have an older cat that does not get along with her. We are therefore seeking a new family for this very special cat".
While in Nairobi, Mara loved to run with the monkeys in the yard, and climb and hunt by day. At night, she (almost) always came home, and would spend the evenings curled up in our laps, purring louder than any cat we’ve ever met! Mara loves jumping in boxes, baskets, and bags, and being carried around in them! She is particularly agile, and can jump up and walk on railings and on top of doors. She occasionally indulges in catnip, and is happy to be indoors in a big house if she has enough space and stimulating activities and toys. However, if possible, she would love to have supervised outdoor time as well. She is very very playful, and needs someone who will spend quality time playing and stimulating her. In return, she will pay back the investment tenfold with her love, appreciation, and affection.
It would be preferable to find a home where Mara would be the only pet. She has previously displayed her displeasure of other cats by peeing inappropriately; however, this behavior may have been caused by a cyst which has now been removed. She is very patient and tolerant with all humans, young and old, and has never scratched or bit anyone in anger. Mara has such a special spirit, and we know she will make a wonderful pet for the family that chooses to love her.

Rescue Group Info...
Toronto Cat Rescue is a no-kill, non-profit, 100% volunteer group. TCR helps find homes for homeless, abandoned, sick or injured cats, as well as helps cats escape situations of abuse, neglect, or imminent euthanasia. TCR relies on volunteers to foster cats in their homes until a cat lover comes along to adopt them, so we know the cats personalities in a home setting! TCR saves cats from Toronto, GTA & Kitchener area.
Decided on the kitty you would like to adopt? Please call the TCR Hotline - 416-538-8592 (press 1 for adoptions and leave a message) or email: email@example.com for a pre-adoption interview.
An adoption coordinator will return your call and give you more details about the cat you are interested in and ask some questions about your home to make sure the cat will be a "purr-fect" fit. We are happy to answer any questions you may have as well.
Next you will be supplied with the foster home address to have a meet and greet with your kitty. If both parties are happy, you can sign the TCR Contract of Adoption, pay the adoption fee and take your kitty home with you (in a safe carrying case).
Adoption fee is $175 per cat. This ensures that the cats that come into our care receive the attention they need, are spayed or neutered, and receive a rabies vaccination at the appropriate age. It also includes 6 weeks of free pet insurance. As you can imagine, these fees only begin to cover our costs; donations and ongoing fundraising efforts carry us the rest of the way!
