Rescue:

Initially, because he is so darn cute, Simba was thought to be a girl. The long hair, the plump tail and the large eyes. But once rescued and in Pet Patrol care, it was quickly established that he was all boy. Simba came from a small village a few miles from a very busy highway. He was noticed a month or so before his rescue, by one of our volunteers. She thought he might belong to one of the new neighbours because she had not noticed him before, but when she asked them, they did not know who he was. By then he had wandered off and a few weeks later, another volunteers said that this good looking boy was hanging around their back deck. He was sleeping on their patio chairs, stretched out on the warm cement patio and taking in all the love and petting that he could. He was fed, and then he would wander off again before anyone could pick him up and bring him into care. Finally a plan was put in motion and Simba was enticed by some very smelly cat food. He went right into the carrier and onto safety.

Personality:

Such a nice boy. When he arrived he had thick mats all across his back and down one side. This tell us that he was outside for a very long time, and was squeezing under something to get in and out of his shelter, or that his shelter was very small and he was turning around in it, causing mats in his long, dry and malnourished coat. He had no issues in allowing his care givers to comb them out, he actually purred with relief. Simba has since integrated in with the other cats in the sanctuary and is doing very well. He is loving and gentle, likes his people and is very affectionate as well. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Oh My! What happened to poor Buster’s leg. When one of our volunteers, who runs the TNR program, mentioned that there was quite the grapevine of cat rescuers who were trying to save this boy, we knew we had to help. Buster had been coming and going from one woman’s property for quite some time. When she first noticed him he was quite dirty and thin, so it was obvious that he did not have a nice clean home to go to, or regular food. He would hang around for a while until he felt better, and then would disappear for three weeks or so at a time. This is the nomad life of an unneutered male cat. It is not unusual. But one day he arrived on her door step limping. He held up his front leg and would not put weight on it. Thinking it was broken, the phone calls and connections were made to bring him into Pet Patrol care. Luckily the leg was sound, but he had three big puncture wounds which were starting to become infected. Immediately taken to the vet, this lovely boy was taken care of and soon became a happy and healthy boy again.

Personality:

Buster is absolutely wonderful now. He is patient, easy going and accepting of the changes in his life. His is very appreciative of being cared for and is finally starting to play. He wasn’t sure of toys in the beginning, he had never had any before, but he really likes to chase the laser pen light and toys that roll, bounce or have catnip in them. He is a nice cat, friendly, affectionate and will readily flop down beside you on the couch. He loves attention and affection, definitely a lap cat and a cuddler. Such a nice boy and ready to be
adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

A woman, calling on behalf of her elderly father, left a message on the Pet Patrol line, asking for help. She knew it was kitty season, and that we were very busy and bursting at the seams with litter upon litter being rescued. But if we could just put her on the waiting list, she would appreciate it. Her father had a few cats that had befriended him, and he took them into his home. The male cats were neutered and he thought that would take care of any kittens being born. For him, there was no problem with raising the babies and making sure they were social, the issue was finding homes for them. Sure enough the female cat of the trio went into heat and quicker than quick she scooted out the door one night. He was just happy that she returned home the next morning, but the dirty deed had been done, and she produced a litter eight weeks later, Gandalf being one of the kittens. What to do/ What to do? His daughter started calling around to shelters and rescues and finally found Pet Patrol. She offered to continue to look after them until they were ready to be spayed or neutered, and from there they came into our care.

Personality:

Glinda (the good witch from the Wizard of Oz) is a bubbly little kitten who likes to run and play  with her siblings. She is gentle and sweet, always purring and happy to go with the flow. Games of Tag and Pounce are a favorite. Any cardboard box will become a castle and can be tumbled around in and she can poke out at anyone sauntering by. She is pretty funny. Glinda is affectionate and loving as well, and likes her people. She can be picked up and carried around, and will snuggle into your lap for a snooze. This lovely girl is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely
indoors.

Rescue:

Jed and his siblings were born on a country property with a lot of children in the house. There were eight in fact and they all loved the kittens. Most of the cats in the barn have been spayed or neutered, and they are going to make sure all of them are altered, but occasionally there is a stray cat that will wander onto the property to find a safe place to give birth. This is how this little fella’s life began. He was found with his litter mates curled up in the hay loft, all snuggled in waiting for the return of their mother. The children sat quietly and sure enough she appeared. To their delight she was friendly and after running to the house to tell their parents, the whole feline family was brought into the house. There they thrived and had a great time running and playing and becoming completely comfortable being held and picked up. All have done very well.

Personality:

Jed is a lovely little cat who likes to explore and play with just about anything. A cardboard box, paper bag, running shoes and anything that dangles is all fair game and good fun for him. He is happy to play with his siblings with games of Tag and the famous WWF (World Wrestling Felines), across the living room floor before piling up for a snooze together. Jed has been raised with children and a very easy going dog. He has had a good upbringing with people who cared about him, loved him and made sure he was healthy and happy. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

✔ Dogs (passive)
✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a call from a family that needed to reduce the number of cats they had in their home. They had their regular resident cats, and then they had a mother cat who kept sneaking out of the house and getting pregnant. Not realizing that she could be spayed successfully early in the gestation period, they continually allowed her to have her litters. She is now spayed (they kept her in the house after the last litter was weaned) and all the kittens had found homes except for Kimmie, Kiwi and Keebler. Now almost a year old, these kitties needed a permanent home as the family feared they too would go into heat and reproduce. When they first arrived at the sanctuary they were very unsure what to expect and were a little grumpy about it, but soon they settled in and did very well with the other cats. Within days they received their vaccination and were spayed or neutered and are now ready to find a family.

Personality:

Kiwi is a very loving and affectionate cat who is good with new people, other cats, children and even passive dogs. She is loving and sweet and very easy to pick up and cuddle. She likes to follow you around and see what you are doing, and a lap with out a cat on it is her destiny. She adores her people. Playful as well, she is interested in anything new, and will have fun with just about anything. Being the neighbourhood watch cat, she likes to know what is happening on the other side of the window, watches the birds and squirrels and even the traffic is of interest. Kiwi is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Chico has been Adopted

MALE
Born: 2010
Colour: Classic Brown Tabby & White
Eyes: Green

Microchipped

✔ Quiet home

✔ Other cats
✔ Dogs (passive)
✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

When Chico’s elderly owner died in January and family came to clean out the house, his bed, litter box, toys etc. were thrown out and he was destined to be homeless. A group of six friends got together and one agreed to take Chico in. The others all chipped in to buy him a new bed, food, litter box etc and they continued to help out until another solution could be found for this friendly boy. He fit right into her home, with her little dog, and was never shy or uncertain, he seemed happy there. But the woman who was now caring for him was in a wheel chair and on oxygen, and was finding it a bit too much. She was worried about being able to take care of him permanently, as hospital stays happen and it would be difficult to find someone to care for both of her pets while she was not home. She reached out to the six friends again, and they contacted one of Pet Patrol’s volunteers who lived close by. She was able to take Chico in until a forever home was found. She too found that this lovely boy fit right into her multi cat home, with no fuss. He is a gem.

Personality:

As you have seen, Chico is a very handsome classic brown tabby with some white. His coat is glossy and he is in good shape. He is very friendly, quite chatty and is definitely a lap cat and loves a good snuggle. He is good company and likes to have people around, so a family setting with older children would be great. He is very nosy and if you want something from the very back of a drawer or cupboard, he’s your man. No matter how full it is. Although he has always been an only cat, he would be fine with another passive and affectionate cat. Chico is an amazing cat, who had a wonderful first home and is ready for his forever home now. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Tilly (Kitten) has been Adopted

✔ Indoors only

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 our 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 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 five babies (Tilly being one of them) were brought into Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

Tilly is a nice little kitten who was not sure of people in the beginning. Because her mother was not social at the time, she was taught to be fearful of them. But with time and patience she has come around quickly and is now very happy to be picked up and cradled in your arms, carried and enjoy playtime with her people. She loves toys of all kinds and is quite curious of anything new. She needs to figure it out it seems. Tilly is quite attached to her siblings and it would be nice for her to be in her new home with a playmate. She is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Ezra has been Adopted

FEMALE

✔ Quiet home

✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

Ezra came to Pet Patrol with a lot of family. Her sons Elam, Elijah, Edison, daughters Ella and Eva, and four little grand babies. Wow! That is a lot of kitties to take into our care all at once. But they are all friendly, affectionate, and sweet natured. Ezra and her crew came from a farm property that is way off the road. A young family was renting the house and the children had discovered her in the hayloft with her litter of kittens. They socialized them and as the kittens grew bigger they started following the children into the house. Now they were indoor / outdoor cats. In one way that was nice for them because they didn’t have to worry about cold nights, rainy days or the hot sun. But being allowed outside created other problems, like becoming prey to coyote and fox. There were a few harrowing experiences for them. Having a lot of pets of their own, and now another litter of kittens born to the now grown daughters was becoming unmanageable for a family with little money. They eventually found Pet Patrol and knowing of the situation they were all brought into our care. They have proven to be very nice kitties that deserve to have a forever home.

Personality:

Ezra is gentle, loving and fun. She is like her older kittens, young at heart, carefree and takes in the love and attention of the people around them. She is used to children and other cats, and even the family dog was a friend of hers. She has shown us her expertise at chasing down and catching a fly that got into the building. She has a lovable sweet face, has a deep appreciative purr and the ability to steal hearts. What a gem! Ezra is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.
