About Toru

Meowllo! My name is Toru (pronounced TOW-roo), and I am in search of my furever home.

The meaning of my name is “small tree” and it originates from Māori, the Indigenous Polynesian people of mainland New Zealand (Aotearoa). I think it suits me. I make life better, not because I produce oxygen like a tree, but because I produce hugs and purrs!

I live with my 6 siblings, and boy do some of them have big purrsonalities! It can be difficult to match their characters, so I can be a bit shy at times. When I come out of my shell, though, I muscle them out of the way so I can get bum scratches. Those are my absolute favourite!

Surprisingly, I do not match the energy and chaos of the average orange cat. I am very calm and would rather hangout with you than cause mischief.

I would thrive in a home that is quieter, but not *too* quiet. Older children would be best for me, as a loud environment may overwhelm me, and I would enjoy having a feline friend to hangout with. 

If you are interested in adopting me, you can fill out an application below!

Toru's Adoption Fee | $149.00

The feline adoption fees help cover the costs associated with rescuing, such as vetting, food, kitty litter and other expenses.

Prior to adoption, cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed and given flea treatment. In short, they receive any necessary treatment. 

For more information about adoption fees, please review our Adoption FAQs & Fees page. Alternatively, you can email us and communicate with our Adoption Coordinator.

Why We Love Fostering

  • Fostering is such a rewarding experience and works great for us as it is very flexible. We love seeing the difference in their personalities from day 1: from timid and nervous to a happy, healthy, better-socialized dog. It gives them time to decompress before going to their perfect home. Fostering enriches our lives knowing we are saving a life each time, and giving them a better life ahead. It warms the heart knowing you were part of this process.
