Toronto Cat Rescue and Toronto Animal Services had a busy weekend as they spent Saturday removing hundreds of cats from a single Toronto apartment. Over 300 cats were discovered in the Toronto home this weekend in the second hoarding situation that Toronto Cat Rescue has had to respond to this month. Now, Toronto Cat Rescue is warning Torontonians exactly how many cats is too much under the laws of the city. 

According to the Toronto Cat Rescue, this Saturday, both the TCR and TAS worked together to successfully remove 70 cats from the Toronto location. The cats and kittens were moved to a variety of foster homes around the city where they are adapting well. 

These rescued cats will all be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and monitored by their foster homes before they will become available for adoption.  The Toronto Cat Rescue informs that if anyone is interested in becoming a foster parent for cats they can fill out an application their website. 

This is the second case that Toronto Rescue has had to deal with in the past month. Narcity recently reported on another cat hoarding situation that was reported where Toronto Cat Rescue stated that over 100 cats were being hoarded inside a single Toronto home.

The agency responded to the hoarding situation and removed all cats from the home before treating them and placing them up for adoption. Many of the cats were instantly adopted and found their forever homes when news travelled of the enormous amount of cats that needed to be adopted. 

Now, Toronto Cat Rescue is attempting to prevent another hoarding situation from arising by reminding Torontoians exactly how many cats is too many. The City of Toronto defines that the maximum amount of cats that can be in one home is six. Any more than six cats in one Toronto home is against the law and can be considered as a hoarding situation. 

Toronto Cat Rescue states that one way to ensure that you do not exceed the six cat limit is to ensure that all cats are spayed or neutered to prevent pet overpopulation within your home. 

They warn that homeowners who have breeding cats can accidentally let the situation get out of hand very quickly, given that cats gestation period is only nine weeks. They warn that one way to prevent this problem from arising in the future is to report any cases that you may see around your neighbourhood.  

To report a cat hoarding situation you can make a report to the City of Toronto by calling 311 to be directed to the appropriate department.
