In Mid-December, 2012 my husband and myself went to the Toronto Humane Society to adopt a cat. We were looking for an older cat to add to our family of two other senior cats and three children. We met Neige (formerly Frosty) in the cat room. She is a beautiful white 12 year old cat, with a lot of personality! She is very affectionate, talkative and loves to nap on your knees for as long as possible. She still enjoys playing with cat toys and loves to drink water from the bathroom sink first thing in the morning and will meow her head off if she doesn’t get what she wants! She has fit in beautifully with our other two cats and she loves our three kids. If you are thinking of adopting a pet, give an older pet the opportunity for a loving home for their golden years, you will be rewarded with lots of love and appreciation.
As an independent cat rescuer, I'm so grateful to all the organizations who help me find homes for cats, The Toronto Humane Society, Toronto Cat Rescue and Annex Cat Rescue. They are all amazing, and the whole point is to get them into forever homes as soon as possible. I've learned that I have limitations in that respect, I've pretty much exhausted my network, but clearly there are lots of good homes for cats, you just have to access them.
I'm happy to report that Mandy, who was recently trapped at a colony, but turned out to be tame, was adopted at THS within 24 hours of arriving there.
