Rescue:

Cheeto was first spotted in late February when the weather was bitterly cold, the wind was biting, and there didn’t seem to be any end in sight. He was noticed in a trailer home park and a very nice woman began feeding him and she also built him a proper cat shelter. But it turns out he already had a place, under her neighbour’s trailer with a groundhog. Sometimes he would show up with pink insulation bits stuck to his fur. Not ideal but it was the only way he could survive the below zero temperatures. He was very frightened of people at first, but she could see something in him. She thought underneath that fear he was a friendly boy. She named his Cheeto Bandito because all she saw was an orange streak as he scurried away. As the weather started to get a little better the woman noticed that an owned outdoor cat and a feral cat in the same area were picking on Cheeto and roughing him up pretty badly. The woman knew he needed rescuing. She set up a humane trap and brought him into Pet Patrol where her premonitions of his personality proved correct. Cheeto loved to be touched. The woman was impressed with Pet Patrol and our care of the cats and is now a regular volunteer.

Personality:

Cheetos surprised us all with how friendly and affectionate he was. The first time we were able to pet him he seemed so grateful for the affection and pushed his head into our hand for more. Since then he has been integrated into the sanctuary with the other cats and has done very well. He is an affectionate, curious and playful cat who just needed a bit of time to get used to things. Cheeto likes to lay in the sun, stretch out on the beds and play with the many toys we have. He likes the laser pen light and bouncy balls. Cheeto is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Big boy Teddy was rescued by one of our long time volunteers. She has a knack for recognizing potential in street cats like no other. In the past she has brought into our care other male cats from her neighbourhood. Floyd and Brownie were two of them. Both appeared to be quite ferocious, mistrusting, rough looking from lack of food and shelter, and miserable while living outdoors. In her heart of hearts she knew that these cats were social underneath and deserved an opportunity to show their true selves. This was the same thought for Teddy. When he first arrived in our care he was very unsure of our intentions and what we were all about, but he was happy to have a soft bed and plenty of food. Overtime and with patience he proved to be just as friendly as she thought he would be.

Personality:

It started with petting him while giving him treats. He seemed to like it. Then came the ear rubs, neck and back massages and the brush was just the best thing ever. He stopped looking at people with fear, and instead with interest and became more comfortable in our care. Teddy is on his way to showing us his social side. He has made the jump from fear to friendly and we look forward to seeing more of his gentle giant personality. Teddy is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that is calm and easy going, will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Harley Jr. and his siblings, Minx and Lynx arrived at Pet Patrol with their mother Jules. He like some of the others have curly short tails, which makes them quite unique. They are really nice cats who love their people, are playful and quite entertaining. Their beginning in life was not so great. They were rescued off the street with their mother when they were tiny kittens. They were saved from the harsh realities of becoming prey, starvation and dealing with the ever changing weather. Being brought indoors was a wonderful thing, but they were brought into a very crowded home. The woman who owns the home loves cats and also has other pets, however she had too many of them. There came a time when she had to reduce her numbers due to health issues of her own, and the affordability of caring for all these animals. Although she was able to feed them they did not have any veterinarian care.

Personality:

Harley loves other cats and his siblings and will seek them out for play and cuddling. He is an excellent house cat and good company for his people. He quite enjoys watching the neighbourhood and basking in the sun on top of the kitty climber. Toys are to be played with and people are to be snuggled up to, talked to and adored. Harley has a lot of personality and is quite entertaining. His curly tail makes him even more endearing. This handsome boy is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

As told by her rescuer: As a Pet Patrol Volunteer I live in a village surrounded by farms and is close to cottages. Cats are dropped off frequently by people thinking they will find food and shelter on the farms, but the cats end up being picked on because everyone needs the food…no extra for more mouths. I have a feeding station set up and I noticed Lana in early December. She came close but always ran away when I went outside. I hadn’t seen her for a couple months so I thought maybe she moved on or had been hit by a car; coyotes and farm dogs are around also. One day I received a call from my neighbour who had humanely trapped this little calico while trying to get a skunk that lived under his house. Lana was terrified being in the trap but calmed down after being talked to. I brought her to Pet Patrol and once she was in a cage, safe, she let us know how grateful she was that she didn’t have to be constantly alert to trouble. Lana is very friendly and wants a home where she can stay inside and watch out the window…safe!

Personality:

Lana has become a social little cat. Initially quite shy and unsure of living in a house, she has really made herself at home. She loves to play fetch with the kitty springs for hours and hours on end. No matter how many times you throw it, she brings it back and drops it on your feet. If she loses all the springs under the couch she will settle for a toy that squeaks! Lana loves to be petted, and will purr loudly with the attention. She is still startled easily, so consideration and patience is needed with her. A quiet home is preferred. Late at night as things are quieting down, she even gets into having her belly rubbed softly. Lana is food motivated and can hear the auto feeder from anywhere in the house…launching from a deep sleep for that first bite of kibble. She is a dear little cat who has adjusted to the dramatic change in her lifestyle, all for the better. She is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Oscar has been Adopted

Rescue:

Oscar was rescued from right outside the sanctuary front door. It was the dead of winter and there were little kitty tracks in the cold, cold snow. Even though there are three large barns within a field or two from the property, cats don’t generally venture that far away from their shelter or food source in the dead of winter. That is unless they have no shelter, have been run off the farm by other barn cats, or there is no food there. They, like any living thing, must have food daily to survive, and if not, then their hunting skills kick in and they go searching. The downfall – that they don’t find food and they perish. It is not the ideal life in the country as many people, who dump cats out here think. It is a harsh reality of becoming prey and suffering. Oscar is a lucky one as a live trap was set for him and he was rescued shortly after his foot prints were discovered.

Personality:

When Oscar first arrived he was not a happy camper. Just miserable. But one day, just like a switch was flipped our volunteer began petting him and to her surprise and delight he leaned into to it! His ears were rubbed, his neck and even under his chin. He began to purr. Just goes to show you that “you never know what the cat is truly like until you rescue it”. He was so happy to have people look after him, touch him and show him the love. He is now ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Chloe (Kitten) has been Adopted

Rescue:

Here is the story of Chloe and her two siblings, Casey and Callie: A couple who live in town have had a stray mother cat on their property for approximately six years and have done everything in their power to rescue her (befriend her, bribe her, trap her) so she can come inside but she is still very leary of people. She has had many litters which they fed and rescued, but some she moved away from them. This feral cat stayed around and was supplied shelter and food all winter and the couple had made arrangements with their vet several times to have her spayed but she would not be rescued. Then life became too busy, they were not home much and one month went into another. Admittedly their procrastination did not pay off – the mother cat was having babies – again. They had a soft spot for her all along but needed to stop this kitten train. Once the kittens reached 6 weeks of age they brought them indoors for socializing and finally to Pet Patrol for adoption. Their hearts are sad to see them go as they are the last litter for this mother cat. She was finally rescued and spayed, and being completely feral, they released her back onto their property after recuperation. She has the necessities to successfully survive, but the wish is always for them to be indoors.

Personality:

Chloe and her siblings are playful, active and fun loving kittens. Any toy is meant to be played with, a cardboard box can become anything that a kitten can imagine, and the kitty climber lets them look out onto the world outside from the window. They are affectionate and gentle natured, and they have come a long way from being timid and unsure of people. They were raised from six weeks to twelve weeks by the woman’s elderly mother, and although she loved them to bits, it was a quiet home. In their Pet Patrol foster home they have a family cuddling them which has really brought them out of their shells. Chloe is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Briar (Kitten) has been Adopted

Rescue:

Briar was found looking for help, outside someone’s front door, in the middle of winter. She was crying and picking up one foot at a time, because the ground was so cold and wet. The lady that owned the house had two big dogs that are aggressive to cats and she didn’t feel confident to bring this little cat indoors. Poor Briar was left outside until a place could be found for her. The woman posted her on Facebook and another woman saw it. She was working until after midnight, but made arrangements to pick Briar up at 1:30 am, to ensure she was out of the cold. It was just in the nick of time, as the big snow storm hit the next day. Briar was scanned for a microchip and she was posted on the community board, but no one came forward to claim her. Soon afterwards she came into Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

What a little sweetie. Briar is full of love and can be quite funny. She loves to be picked up and cuddled, carried around and purrs a lot! She is quite playful and active, curious and fun loving. She will follow you around and is interested in everything that you do. She is enchanted with the bird feeder outside the window, and likes to lay on the window sill, especially if there is sun beaming down on her. She is good with everyone and excited when you come home. She is a dear little cat. We may never know where her original home was but she is ready to be adopted into her forever home now. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Jamie has been Adopted

MALE
Born: September 15, 2016
Colour: Champagne
Eyes: Gold

✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

Jamie and his brothers, J.J. and Jonas, were part of a colony that was growing on a nice rural property, where the people fed any cats that showed up. It is assumed that these newer cats are mainly drop-offs and refugees from a barn across the road. Recently that neighbouring farm has been sold, and the barn was torn down and there was nowhere else for the many different coloured kitties to go. Almost all of them are friendly and will wind around your legs, want to be petted and will wait for the people to come outside by sitting on the house window sills looking inside. The couple wanted to keep some of the cats, and agreed to keep any that were unadoptable, but mainly they just wanted to keep the feline population under control through spaying and neutering. Volunteers ventured out and were impressed with the care the cats received and their gentle natures. Soon many of them were brought into Pet Patrol care and they are now ready to find their forever homes.

Personality:

Jamie is the only cat from his litter who has not been adopted yet.  We are sure it is due to his shy nature.  He doesn’t quite understand the concept of ‘auditioning for adoption’ yet and retreats under the day beds when company comes.  He is very good with the other cats in the sanctuary, playful and is often found sleeping with a group of them. Often people would like to adopt a third cat in their home, but worry about providing enough time for them. This would be an opportunity for Jamie.  He would be a buddy to the other cats, grateful for a real home and comfortable being indoors, plus you would know that you have helped another kitty find true happiness.  Jamie is ready to be adopted into a forever home.  One that would welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Tabitha has been Adopted

Rescue:

When Pet Patrol heard about Tabitha, she would have been the fourth cat rescued from one country property. The people who lived there were next door to the woman’s uncle and she had made sure all the cats in the barn were spayed and neutered and adopted, but then here is Tabitha. Heavily pregnant when she first showed up at the farm she gave birth to her kittens in the barn and then all were brought indoors to be raised. Once the kittens were adopted out Tabitha, still being unsocial, was returned to the barn. It was all set up with a heated room for the cats, they were fed twice daily and any vet needs were met. Unfortunately the people were destined to move and all the barn cats were placed on other farms or brought indoors if social, and then there was Tabitha. She eluded all attempts at rescuing her at the time, but the woman was not going to give up on her. Eventually, after several months, Tabitha was brought into Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

Such a pretty cat with amazing green eyes and rich classic tabby coat. She is beautiful. She is gentle and sweet with the other cats in the sanctuary, always cuddled up with them, licking their heads and keeping them company. She likes to play with all types of toys and gaze out the window at the world, not missing the extreme weather changes at all. Unfortunately she still would prefer we not touch her, which is very disappointing. But we take pride in knowing that she is happy and healthy and would make a great second or third cat in a home. One that will not put expectations on her, but allow her to be the resident cats BFF. Tabitha is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

✔ Hobby Farm

Rescue:

Little Haven and her sister were found by a little house that was surrounded by farms. The owners of the house had about an acre lot cut out of the farm land, along the road, and they built their little house and a small out building there. There were rarely any cats on their property, except for the occasional barn cat walking through, because they didn’t feed the cats and there was really no place for them to take up residence. One day the elderly couple that live there noticed little kittens playing outside. They were coming out from under the small back porch and were looking a little worse for wear. It was a wide open porch and unless there as a gopher hole under there so they could get out of the wind, it was not sufficient to survival. he husband build a lean-to type of shelter for them with blankets, and sometimes they took refuge under there. Not seeing a mother cat they knew these kittens would not survive without food, and would become prey, so the began to feed them. Worried for their survival Haven and her sister were brought into Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

As pretty and as cute as Haven is, she has no interest in human companionship. She is completely happy and content to cuddle with the other cats in the sanctuary, friendly or feral, she loves them all. She is playful and energetic, enjoys all the toys, climbers and wide window sills to look outside. Haven is good at basking in the sun as well in a mosh pit of other cats, all curled up and purring contently. After many months of working with her, she still would rather we just leave her alone. It saddens us because she is so cute and her sister was quite social. Haven is ready to be adopted into a hobby farm/horse farm environment where she will be considered a pet and properly cared for.
