A Special Home for Special Animals

We are a small non-profit organization. We rescue animals with special needs and help free roaming cats who live outdoors.

Our sanctuary space includes an indoor pond for Stacie, our rescued Yellow-Bellied Slider turtle who was once abandoned. Her previous environment was an aquarium which is now an aquatic garden to grow duckweed for her pond and doubles as a snail sanctuary for the hitchhiking creatures who attach themselves to aquatic plants. We have accommodations for two feral cats we rescued from outdoor life on the streets of Toronto who are both making amazing progress. There is a private space for Pippa and Kiki who are feline littermates who were born with moderate-several levels of a condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. Milo is another cat who calls New Cat City home who was born with severe CH and is vision impaired, who also has his own private quarters. Mrs. Floppers is our original CH cat rescue with mild CH. Rupi is our newest family member, she is a rabbit who was abandoned outside in the winter of 2022.

Since December 2020 we have helped over 25 lost, abandoned, homeless, stray, or wayward cats by scouting, trapping, sterilize/vaccinating, and networking with other individuals and other rescue groups. We have not yet been forced to release any back outside on the harsh streets of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We rescued our first cat with CH in 2011.

About Us

We believe in a world where every animal is given a fair chance. We have given four cats who were born with Cerebellar Hypoplasia a permanent home. We have made accommodations for homeless or abandoned animals such as Remus, Romulus, Stacie, and Rupi to have a home here. We investigate unsterilized feral cat colonies and organize/execute rescue missions. We work with other no-kill rescues to place (sterilized/vaccinated) cats indoors for socialization.

Our mission is to raise awareness about CH and give the cats here who have CH the most comfortable life, address the feral cat population concerns of Toronto and dispel the myth that all feral cats must be released back outside, and help any animal in need whenever possible.

We do this by utilizing social media to show the day-to-day progression of the animals in our care and rescue missions, as well as network with other rescues. Cats with CH, feral cat socializing, and trapping feral cats require a lot of patience and love – which is plentiful at New Cat City.

Explanation

Cerebellar Hypoplasia

Cerebellar hypoplasia is a neurological condition in which the cerebellum is smaller than usual or not completely developed. 

NIH (National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke)

Cerebellar hypoplasia most commonly occurs when a pregnant cat becomes infected with feline panleukopenia virus and passes the infection to her unborn kittens.
