Wanted to give you a quick update on my rescue Oliver Reed!! It’s super cliche but I didn’t think that this little three-legged cat would fill my life with such love and joy. I’ve had him for about 7 months and have loved every second of it. Thank you for taking such good care of him and know that he is absolutely loved and being given the life he deserves! If you would like to share your Happy Tail on our website and social media, please send us a photo and story at happytails@torontohumanesociety.com.

Addressing and Understanding Cat Over-Grooming
Toronto Humane Society Blog

Cats are known for their meticulous grooming habits. It’s a natural behaviour that helps them stay clean, remove parasites, and maintain their coat’s health. However, grooming can also serve as a coping mechanism for stress. When faced with anxiety or discomfort, cats may use excessive grooming to self-soothe. While grooming is typically harmless, overdoing it can lead to serious skin problems and discomfort for your feline friend.  How to Recognize the Signs If you notice your cat excessively grooming, leading to bald patches or irritated skin, it’s essential to act. Over-grooming can ..read more

As we approach mangos second gotchya day I thought it might be nice to provide the humane society we got her from with an update on how she’s doing. She’s been the goodest girl since we took her in, potty trained to a fault. She’s still scared of the hardwood sometimes but has made great progress in walking over other scary things. She has taken well to our routine and loves to zoom in coronation park on the weekends, she’s even tried to make furry friends. (She is very awkward at this, her only move is to cry and wag her tail). She has also become a bit of cuddle bug and loves to ho ..read more

Boogles – the big-eyed, big-eared bloodhound mix, found her second chance at happiness through the kindness of a family of seven. When Jeff stumbled upon Boogles, she was enduring neglect and abuse from her original guardians. With hearts full of compassion, Jeff’s family took her in, and in no time, Boogles became the “heart” of their home.  Boogles’ journey with her new family spanned nine beautiful years until an unforeseen crisis struck. Boogles faced a health emergency – pyometra, a life-threatening condition. The cost of her essential treatment was beyond their means, compounded by ..read more

I was so lucky to adopt Luna (formerly Murka) in January of last year at age 11.  I wanted a senior cat because they are hard to find homes for, especially black ones.  The staff were all wonderful with the information they provided, and their process was thorough. Luna adapted very well to her new home and is a sweet, smart, well-behaved and beautiful companion.  She loves to bask in the sunshine, curl up in cozy spaces and is even learning new games to keep her active and engaged at her advanced age. I highly recommend Toronto Humane Society for anyone who is able to and inter ..read more

We have adopted Ollie (formerly Didi), approximately 10 months ago, and are happy to report that he brings us much daily joy and laughter but continues to be a shy cat. He has a big elderly sister, whom he follows around and tries to be BFFS with, sleeps in his favourite chair, and observes the squirrels, chipmunks and birds in our yard. Although his personality is more on the quiet side, he meows like a little mouse. Despite all of this, he will definitely let you know when he wants attention, as he took us by much surprise when he began to roar like a lion at 6 am when he is hungry. Thank yo ..read more
