My story

DOB 17-Apr-2022

Checkers is being fostered at one of Toronto Cat Rescue’s pet store partner locations. Please note that if you’re approved to adopt, you’ll need to pick them up from the store within 24 hours of being approved.

I'm a small but feisty calico who grew up with 5 older adoptive siblings. My favourite toys are crinkle balls and plastic springs, which I carry in my mouth and defend with a (very cute) growl.

In the mornings, I'm the first to come and greet my foster mom with lots of purrs and my tail held high.

I would be better suited in a home with no small children, as a kitten in my excitement my little claws can come out unintentionally.

I am currently eating Royal Canin Kitten (dry) and Mother and Babycat (wet), my litter is wood pellets and I like carpet and cardboard scratchers

Why adoption is a great option

Checkers, a Toronto Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Toronto, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Toronto.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Toronto already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Toronto breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Toronto paves the way for another one to be saved.
