Rescue:

Demi is a pretty little tabby girl with soft green eyes, who was born to a feral cat. She was lucky enough to find refuge on a country property during the winter time. It was brutally cold outside, and the wind just whipped off of the open fields, there was little shelter for her, but she found a spot in the shed. The couple living on the property set up a heat lamp for her, cozy bed, food and water and checked on her daily. At the time she kept her distance. In the summer she gave birth to five kittens, Demi, Delaney, Dooley, Dori and Dickens. The couple asked Pet Patrol for help with finding homes for the cats. In the meantime, until they were old enough, they were asked to bring the young feline family into a safer and more secure space so the kittens would not become prey. The couple brought them into the shop where they could be socialized and they all thrived. Although the mother cat remains on the property as she is not social, the kittens are now ready for adoption.

Personality:

Demi is bright and curious but a lot of noise or new busy people and she easily becomes cautious. She is gentle with everyone, doesn’t mind being picked up and likes gentle pets and strokes. She will sit next to you and purr quietly while she is brushed or has a nice kitty massage. She absolutely loves wand toys and chases laser pointers happily. She is good with people of all ages and other cat too. Demi is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that is not a noisy household and will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors

Rescue:

This good looking boy’s story starts with his mother Frost. She is a sweet girl who her rescuers have been taking care of since she first showed up at their door, in November 2014. She was about three months old at the time and she was with another older cat who they think may have been her mom. We rescued the older cat but were never able to catch Frost since she had never been touched by people and was very unsure of us. Since then she has been living, until this year, in an outdoor insulated, weather proof cat house, that they built her. She was provided with plenty of food and a heated water bowl so it doesn’t freeze during the winter. Being unspayed Frost had her first litter about a year later, she had two kittens. and then her second litter was born in March 2017. She had four beautiful babies. Once in touch with Pet Patrol Frost was rescued and spayed, and so were all her kittens, including Aerowyn.

Personality:

Aerowyn is an handsome, stocky boy who loves his treats and wet food. He likes being pet and doesn’t mind being picked up, and a nice chin scratch and ear rub starts his purr motor going. He doesn’t mind his feet being touched either. He’s a great little climber, and really likes looking out the window from the top of his cat tree. He doesn’t miss the outdoors at all. Aerowyn was slightly cross eyed when he was younger and sometimes still is when he’s not focusing on anything. He has the most adorable head tilt when you talk to him and is a real sweetheart. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep his safely indoors.

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received this email from a concerned lady: “Hello. I am wondering if you can provide me with some advice. Our office has a landscaped area in the front of the building and a few weeks ago, we discovered a cat living there, under a large cement slab. We have provided a bit of shelter (which she has ignored) and some food/water since we found out about her. She is a petite little calico and roams around the parking lots here and near by (there are apartment buildings behind us) but always returns to the den under the slab. Apparently, in the last few weeks, she has given birth (unsure as to how many kittens). I don’t want to scare her off, or do anything that might jeopardize the health of the mom or babies, but I definitely do not want to leave this little family there, exposed to the elements. I know that there are TNR programs, but not sure how to find them and to help this cat and her kittens. I am happy to keep feeding her in the meantime. Any advice and help would be welcome.” Shortly thereafter, with a small team of volunteers, Tessa and her babies (5) were brought into Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

Tessa was relieved to be indoors, but was quite unsure as to what was going on. She enjoyed the climate controlled foster home (she had endured the ice storm), plenty of food, water and attention, although she definitely demonstrated her limits. She was a proud mother of her kittens and was very hesitant to let anyone pet them. With time and patience, and especially when the kittens were weaned and she came to the sanctuary on her own, we started to see a nice little cat. She likes to rub up against your legs, and eventually she let her guard down and we now see her playing and enjoying life. She had a tough start to life.

Rescue:

One day, in the middle of winter a little girl came upon Grey as she and her family were out for their regular evening walk. He was thin, crying and had such a look of desperation on his face. He was desperate indeed. It was obvious that he had not had food or shelter for a very long time, and was at the doorstep of dying of exposure. Both his ears were tipped with frost bite and, over time, once rescued he lost a good portion of his ears to this. Being of kind hearts and a family that has been involved with cat rescue, they didn’t hesitate to bring Grey home with them. They could see he needed help. Initially wanting to keep him, but their other two cats were having no part of it. So they let him recuperate in their home with lots of love and attention. He gained his health back and put on weight. He continued to impress them with his personality. Grey arrived already declawed, so they knew he must have an owner somewhere. He was reported to the local shelter and other rescue groups; as well as on their community Face Book page. No one came forward. We may never know where this dear boy came from, but he is safe and sound now.

Personality:

Friendly is an understatement for this boy. He is very social, loves all people including children of all ages. He is fun loving and gentle, playful and sweet natured and curious about everything. He likes to be cuddled, pet and have belly rubs too. Grey (named because they thought his colouring looked more grey than brown tabby) has proven to be a lovely cat who is not timid or unsure, but confident and interactive with everyone. He is just a treat. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home, one that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Emilie has been Adopted

Rescue:

We think that little Emilie showed up on a farm with her mother. As the farmer came around the corner of the building all he saw was a cat staring at him fearfully, and then taking off at full speed. It is not uncommon for stray cats to show up on farms, without notice and usually hungry and unsure, so the man half expected to see the cat at the feeding station that evening. She was never seen again. We assume it was a she, and that she was transporting her kittens to a safer place, as the next day he heard kitty cries from under his back deck. Looking underneath he could barely make out a little black kitten, wide eyed and shaking in fear or with the cold winter air, not knowing what to do. This was Emilie and the cat that ran away was probably her mother. The man’s wife crawled under the low deck and was easily able to pick up the tiny kitten and bring her into the house for safety. Shortly thereafter she came to Pet Patrol where she showed her friendly and affectionate nature within a few days. A search was carried out for other siblings, but none were found.

Personality:

Emilie is a very excitable kitten. She will greet you at the door when you come home with purring and love. She likes playing with her humans the best (more than her toys!) and seems fascinated with your hands and feet. She has fun constantly running around as she has so much energy and will play ‘hide and seek’ with you too! Emilie will do well with other pets who are gentle and fun loving. When she is tired, this little one will cuddle up with her human during a movie or when going to bed. Emilie is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Trystan (Kitten) has been Adopted

Rescue:

There is a small village close to the city that has been able to succeed and become famous to tourists for it’s old world charm, interesting shops and local culture. There is also a big stray cat population. Pet Patrol does it’s best to answer the calls about rescuing these cats, but many of them are feral and all calls are about moms and kittens. They are found under decks and sheds, in abandoned garages and even up in the rafters of a smokehouse. It’s pretty incredible where they find safety for their little families. For Trystan and his siblings (Boo, Tobias, Titan and Braveheart) they were born in the backyard of a private home. There was a shed, deck and lumber piled up, all the places that a mother cat would seek out to shelter her kittens. The woman living there began feeding them, and with the help of Pet Patrol was able to rescue them and bring them into her home. She spent a lot of time working with the kittens, socializing them, playing with them and making sure they had everything they needed. The mother cat was rescued as well, spayed and vaccinated, but proved to be feral. She was released back to the woman’s backyard where food and shelter is provided.

Personality:

Trystan is a little more reserved than the others but once comfortable he’ll be right in the middle of the action. If picked up he will soak up all the cuddles you have to offer. He prefers a quieter environment with fewer people and less action (my sense is that in a quieter house with another cat he would do great, probably not good with dogs or small, busy, loud children). Like all kittens he is happiest playing with crinkle balls, wand toys with his caregiver and a cardboard box can go a long way. Trystan is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a call about a very sad situation where house cats were living in deplorable conditions, and needed to be rescued. We contacted the owner of the cats, a man who’s wife had died of cancer a few months back, to see if he needed help. He told us that his wife loved the cats, they were all from one litter, friendly and sat on her lap all the time. He just wanted them out, and really had nothing to do with them on a daily basis. No play time, no toys, no interaction. The six cats were born to their elderly female cat who had died at Christmas time. They spent most of their time cuddled up on the couch and keeping each other company. Upon entry of the house the rescuer was hit with the intense smell of cigarette smoke, stale urine and a house that had not been cleaned for a very long time. The place was cluttered and dirty, and the cats were upset and frightened. There were six in total, Amaya, Apala, Aya and Abram were the first to come into our care, the other two, Arric and Augustin, came a week later.

Personality:

Aya would do best if adopted with a sibling. They are all quite attached to each other and get along extremely well. While in the home they shared, they were each others best friend and basically that is all they had. Since coming into our care they have received much more interaction from volunteers and visitors, and are showing us their loving and affectionate side. Toys were quite a mystery for them, and it was interesting to watch them explore and start to play. It was a thrill to see them gain weight and finally smile, and become healthy and happy too. Aya is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a text from a woman with a photo of dear Carlton sitting on her back deck, looking forlornly through her sliding door. She put food out for him and he gobbled it right down. He was very hungry which indicated that he hadn’t had a home for a long time. Doing a little bit of research in her neighborhood she found that at the end of her street is a home that is a rental. Often the people who rent the property stay a short period of time and leave quickly and, according to the neighbours, Carlton was the last tenant’s cat. How sad for him. Left behind. It didn’t take much for her to entice him into a carrier and soon Carlton was on his way to safety and security at Pet Patrol. He was not neutered when he arrived which could be the reason why he was abandoned. Carlton is a lovely big boy though, and is now ready for adoption.

Personality:

When he first arrived in our care, Carlton was not impressed. He had put his trust and faith in people before and ended up abandoned on the street. That was not fair and he didn’t do anything to deserve it. About a week after arriving he was taken into the vet to be neutered, and that alien adventure did not sit well with him either. But with time and patience and once he was moved to a larger space, with other friendly and passive cats, Carleton really started to shine. Within days he was starting to relax and feel better about the people, he was showing that although proud and handsome, he could play like a kitten. Carlton is now ready to be adopted into a forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Daryl lived in a home with many other cats . His owners were disabled and because they loved kitties, people would often take advantage of them. If neighbours or even family members, needed to find a new home for their cat, received a kitten as a gift, or their cat had kittens, they knew they could easily talk this couple into taking the unwanted feline. Their income was incredibly restricted, and they could barely make their rent payments, so feeding their increasing colony in the house was difficult. At risk of being evicted after the landlord found out how many cat there were, and the crowded living conditions, they reached out to a rescue organization, who in turn contacted Pet Patrol. Daryl came into Pet Patrol care with Sacha, Lil’ Wayne and his buddy Kurtis the orange cat. He is a much happier boy now.

Personality:

Daryl is nice boy who is gentle and sweet. He was a little shell shocked when he first arrived at the sanctuary because everything was so strange to him. But he accepted petting from day one and soon adjusted very well to his new surroundings. Daryl can be found snuggled up to the other cats a lot of the time and seeks them out for playtime. He likes games of Tag, wrestling or chasing after the laser pen light. Anything that dangles is a treat. Daryl is ready to be adopted  into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep them safely indoors.
