Starling is a darling boy who likes to stay close to his humans. He follows us around, loves pets and purrs loudly. He’s even started to learn to meow! We think he’ll grow up to be a cuddly lap cat! His current favourite hobby is trying to catch bugs flying outside the windows.

Please note Starling is only available for adoption with one of his siblings (Kestrel, Pipit, or Veery) or to a family with another kitten or young feline who would make an appropriate companion/playmate.

The Avery Foundation is a foster-based and volunteer-run rescue. Every TAF rescue cat is vet checked, vaccinated, treated for parasites, spay/neutered, microchipped and receive any necessary additional medical care. Our adoption process involves an application, reference check, interview, and home visit prior to placement. From the time we receive your application through the screening process adoptions can take a couple weeks.

We thank everyone who takes the time to apply but only those who best fit the cat’s requirements will be contacted.
