Meet Woody – DOB: July 2014
Woody was rescued from a barn situation as a young adult. Terrified of people when he first arrived at NTCR, hissing and spiting was his defensive mechanism of choice. Woody has made incredible strides in learning to trust people, in that with a slow approach he happily enjoys human touch and petting, thanks to daily unconditional love provided by the volunteers at NTCR. A dapper orange and white tabby with brilliant green eyes and timid shy but curious nature. Wood has recently discovered the art of play as he has been observed chasing toys, batting springs and recently started to engage in play that involves people interaction. Woody is excellent with all his roommates and would do best in a mature family home. He would need a patient owner who can see past his initial shyness and understand his need to build trust.
About North Toronto Cat Rescue
This column features Toronto pets available for adoption.
Our current features come from North Toronto Cat Rescue which is a no kill, no cage shelter in Markham, Ontario, Canada. They have saved over 2000 cats over the years from both the harsh environments of life on the streets and from kill shelters in Ontario and Québec. They care for both kittens and adult cats. I always like to promote getting an adult cat as it is a lot easier to pick the cat with the right temperament for you.
The NTCR shelter is run by volunteers with no government assistance. They currently have around 200 plus awesome cats that would love a good home. Go and visit them soon!
For more info, Visit the NTCR Website.
On another Note, NTCR is in trouble as they are losing their home in 2016 for development of the area. If you can offer any help in finding a new home for the almost 200 cats at the shelter, that would be amazing.
