Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a call from a long time supporter about a cat that she had been feeding outside. She called him Sunny because she lived on a sunny street and she and her family were going to be selling their home. In preparation she wanted to make sure that all the strays she had been caring for were rescued and looked after. She wasn’t going to move and leave them behind. Sunny had been around for about two years, never getting any closer than ten feet from her, so naturally she thought he was not socialized. Sunny knew the neighbourhood and was making the most of it in regards to finding feeding stations and shelter, but still he had to endure the weather. In the summer he would be found deep underneath the low shrubs to escape the heat and in the winter he would often show up on her porch covered in snow. This past winter the weather was particularly harsh and especially on our little four pawed homeless cats. The one day she saw ice on his fur and said that was enough and she set the live trap. It didn’t take long for Sunny to go inside the trap, especially with the smell of sardines, warmed in the microwave, and a soft cloth inside it. Sunny was on his way to Pet Patrol and safely.

Personality:

This handsome boy is very happy to be indoors and he has made himself at home. He gets along very well with other cats and kittens, and is very friendly with his caregiver and other volunteers. Sunny is laid back but also playful. He likes to lay in the sun and stretch out on the bed, pawing at the blanket with total content. He is learning to cuddle with his people, something he has not done for a long time, but enjoying it. He will play with the laser pen light and toys that dangle or are interactive with people. He is a lovely boy. Sunny is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Little Hana and her sister Haven were found by a small 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 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 was a gopher hole under there so they could get out of the wind, it was not sufficient for survival. The 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 they began o feed them. Worried for their survival Hana and Haven were brought into Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

Hana is a very sweet little cat who loves to be pet, cuddled and given a lot of affection and love. She is friendly and affectionate and likes her people very much. She is a playful kitten who gets a long with other kitties, likes to run around after toys and climb up the kitty scratching posts for a bird’s eye view. She is content to be inside and loves to stretch out in the sunbeam and take in all the warmth. Haven likes her toys, those that dangle on a wand, catnip mice and crinkle balls. She 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 had become aware of a small colony of cats that were living in the center of a small town. They were being fed daily, had fresh water and a place to sleep, unlike some street cats, but they did not have an owner and were not spayed or neutered. Simba was part of that colony and he would sleep inside the big shed/small barn structure, and then play outside during the day. There were a few small businesses in this building, and the people there were respectful of the cats, and many of them were picked up and cuddled and became very friendly and affectionate with their caregivers. One man took on the task to get some of the cats altered at the low cost spay neuter clinic in the city, and someone else provided food. One day a visiting relative called Pet Patrol and said she wanted to help get some of the cats fixed and since they were now friendly could we take them into our care. It all worked out well, and Simba, Patsy, Harrison, Suzie and Freda are thriving in the sanctuary.

Personality:

Simba first hissed at his caregiver at Pet Patrol, only because he did not know them and was not sure why he was there. He had just returned from the vet clinic and had been taken in there first thing in the morning, right from his outdoor home, and then arrived afterwards at the sanctuary. What is this place he must have wondered? But immediately upon petting he flopped over and showed his belly and he was excited to have his ears rubbed and be petted from head to tail. He has integrated in with the other cats very well, and made himself at home. He likes to gaze out the window and see the world outside, but is content stay put inside. Simba is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Poor Crystal. It seems that she has been through so much in her life. We do believe that she has some hearing loss or is deaf, it is hard to test for that in cats, but her curious nature shines through and she doesn’t miss much. She was found sitting on the front porch of one of our volunteers and was looking a little sad, but not thin or rough looking. The woman naturally fed the cat, but seeing that Crystal was not ravenous, she felt she was someone’s pet, and would head home soon. But this little feline didn’t leave the porch, and our volunteer knew she needed help. She was brought to Pet Patrol where a microchip was found and immediately calls were made to try and find her owner. The chip information revealed that she was originally from another city, but unfortunately, all three contact numbers were disconnected and the information had not been updated for her. There had been no replies to the notices posted locally so it is assumed that Crystal was abandoned. How sad.

Personality:

Since coming into Pet Patrol care Crystal has shone. She is friendly and gentle, greets people when they come in, will rub up against your legs and purrs easily. She is a lap cat and likes to be with her people, curled up on the couch or bed, and keeping your company like a good kitty should. She is playful and fun loving, not a speedy cat, but likes her toys and catnip mice. Crystal has lived at the sanctuary with a lot of other cats, and has also been in a foster home where we could get to know her better. All in all she is a nice pet and would make a welcome addition to any home. Crystal is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors

Rescue:

Jack’s story starts off sad, he was raised in a home until someone left him and his three siblings locked outside with no shelter, with winter just around the corner. They stayed near the dark empty house but no one came. Thankfully, in the middle of winter a nice woman found poor Jack and brought him inside. She called a wildlife rescue to help but unfortunately they only rescued baby birds and squirrels, so Jack could not be kept inside. Even so, he at least had a heated outdoor enclosure and meals. Destined to come into Pet Patrol care, he just needed a ride. Meanwhile in another town, as fate would have it, a sparrow flew into the window of one of our volunteers. They took the injured bird to the same wildlife rescue for medical care. In chatting they discovered the connection and offered to give, by now named Jack Sparrow, the ride he needed to the sanctuary. Is seems fate intervened again for this nice boy.

Personality:

Jack is a cuddle monster, with a big heart, who always wants attention. He is not picky about where the attention comes from as long as it is there. (Same as pirate Jack and his rum.) He will let you know by gently pulling your arm back towards him. He is easy going and fine with being picked up and is great with other cats as well. He wanted us to say that he is sick of the outdoors and he wants to be a safe indoor cat from now on. It seems that fate wanted us to find Jack Sparrow, so if odd circumstance brings you to find Jack, you will know fate has chosen you to be his protector and rum bringer… Sorry I meant to say treat bringer – too. Jack is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Fario (Kitten) has been Adopted

Rescue:

Dr. Nefario (Fario for short) was originally adopted as a kitten into a very active home with two other cats, a large dog, and a child. The two older cats took Fario under their wing and taught him the finer points of being an amazing cat. He had a soft spot though for the gentle Great Dane living in the house. The dog became Fario’s favourite sleeping companion. The toddler in the household was pretty rough with him at times, but Fario was always calm and the better cat, walking away and giving the child some space. Unfortunately this nice boy’s owner needed to move out of province and could not take Fario with her, which we are sure broke his heart. Fario had the next best thing when he moved in with his owner’s mother. He was a companion to her and kept her company when she was home. Unfortunately she has
been unable to be home very much and Fario has been left alone a lot lately. She knew that it was unfair to him to live life alone since he is so full of love and needs to show it. That is when Pet Patrol was called and we were asked for help finding Fario a new home.

Personality:

Fario is an amazing, friendly, patient cat who would be comfortable for a family who want to introduce a cat into their home. This big lovable boy likes to sit on your lap, make sure you know how much he loves you, and may even ask you to give him a bath every once and a while. Yes, you read that right, he is a cat who likes to take baths. Fario is a huge fan of chicken and will give you his paw, waiting patiently with the “Look at how cute I am” face until you share with him. He will present the paw for petting as well. Fario is a big ball of love who will always do his best to put a smile on everyone’s face. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Toby & Twix has been Adopted

Rescue:

Both Toby and Twix were spotted in a trailor park, within the city limits. They were wandering around, seeming lost but also friendly. Twix was the most outgoing of the two, and Toby more cautious, but they liked to be pet and have their heads scratched. The woman who first noticed them had just moved into the park and she began feeding them. She initially thought they were owned by someone in the area, but when she put food and water out the first time, it was obvious that they were not being fed on a daily basis. They just gobbled it down. She wasn’t sure where they found shelter, but one day Twix had pink insulation dust on his coat, probably from underneath one of the homes. Not a good thing for a cat to groom off and ingest. When the weather was really bad and the wind was whipping up, snow on the ground and the temperatures at a chilling low, the cats came into their home. They were let out again once the weather cleared up. No one in the park knew where the cats originally came from, and soon afterwards they came into Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

Since Twix was named after a chocolate bar, Toby is the short form of Toblerone. They are adorable cats and very much attached to each other, so we assume they are brothers. They both love a good scratch behind the ear and on top of their head. They are like a pair out of a buddy cop movie. Twix is the confident leader that shows the way and Toby follows to scope it out. Twix can be picked up like a baby and carried around, how sweet. Any time they chatter it is usually Twix trying to find where his brother is. They are much more chill in the evening and that is when most of the cuddling happens. Both are purr machines and love the attention from people. They are playful cats, and like their catnip mice, wand toys and chasing after anything that bounces across the floor. These lovely, rescued boys are ready to be adopted into their forever home. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors.

Julius has been Adopted

Rescue:

There is a Trap Neuter Release program in action in the rural areas, and at one particular farm there is a fairly large colony. The people who own the property inherited a number of cats when they moved in, but since they feed the cats, many more have made the barn their home. Some have migrated from other country properties, other cats, like Julius (as in Orange Julius) have been drop offs. This means that a car is noticed parked at the end of their long lane, the door opens, closes, and the car pulls away leaving said kitty on the side of the road. It is the hope but not a concern of the driver in the car, that the cat will notice the buildings and head the right way. Some cats don’t and end up wandering aimlessly until they meet their fate. A very sad realization for house cats abandoned on the side of the road. Julius showed up in the barn, and hung out there for a while, then started to wander from farm to farm. When he returned a few weeks later he was limping and soon afterwards come into Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

A very grateful cat, Julius started to knead the blankets of his bed, and showed us he had a hearty appetite from the beginning. He is an easy going cat, gentle, appreciates pets, ear rubs and chin scratches and purrs in delight. He plays gently with toys, and absolutely loves his catnip mouse. He drools on it, chews it and hugs it. Quite cute. Julius has done fine in the sanctuary with the other foster cats, and has never hissed or growled at anyone. Julius is a wonderful boy with a beautiful orange coat. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Pearl (Kitten) has been Adopted

Rescue:

Here is Pearl’s story: A lady who lives on the edge of the city, in a trailer park, was looking after a small colony of cats. This is a community of mostly retired people, or working couples, only a few families with children and almost everyone has a pet of one kind or another. It is pretty common for cats to be abandoned close to the park, people thinking that someone will take them in. But that doesn’t always happen. This colony of ten cats ran freely outside and bred freely as well. Little Pearl was part of the last litter born in the fall. To keep the cats from over populating the lady found homes for most of the kittens, and finally, through the rescue of Pearl, was put in touch with a low cost spay/neuter program. Pearl was given to someone in the park who apparently didn’t take good care of her, she became sick with a bad cold, and not wanting to pay for vet care they dropped her back at the lady’s home without notice. She nursed Pearl back to health and then sought out a rescue organization to help rehome her after she is spayed and vaccinated. Eventually she found Pet Patrol and Pearl was brought into our care

Personality:

Such a loving, sweet and gentle little cat. She is the easiest kitten to pick up and carry around, just like a little Chihuahua dog tucked into your arm. She is playful and fun loving, curious and will try any toy at any time. Pearl has integrated into the sanctuary, with the other cats without incident and joins in on games to Tag and Peek a Boo too. She must have been held and carried around quite a bit, and can even be cradled like a baby. Pearl is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

 

Violet has been Adopted

Picture of our cat Violet

FEMALE
Born: June 2016
Colour: Grey Tabby & White
Eyes: Green
Spayed & Vaccinated

Microchipped

✔ Quiet home

✘ Children under 12
✘ Children over 12
✔ Other cats
✔ Dogs (passive)
✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

Violet came from a small town not far from the sanctuary. We first heard about her from a woman who had recently rescued a mother cat and helped raise her kittens until they were ready for adoption. Her neighbor said that they found three little kittens in their garden, not under the deck, not in or under the shed, but right out in the open. They were not crying for their mother, they were pudgy and content. So this told us that the mother cat was present, but had absolutely no place safe to have her kittens. Considering two were mostly white in color, a hawk or other predator would be able to spot them from a fair distance away. The kittens were quickly gathered up and put into a carrier, a live trap was set up to rescue the mother and all were safely in Pet Patrol care within a few hours. Good job!

Personality:

Violet was certainlya good mother, her kittens were calm and easy going, but she was the “momma bear” of nursing moms. It took her a little while to trust her care giver, and once that was established we found she was very gentle, sweet and a bit silly too. A nice cat, with a big responsibility. Since her kittens have been weaned she has shown us her true loving nature. A happy cat, an affectionate girl, and one that likes her people. Violet had no time for toys before, but she is now discovering how entertaining they can be. She is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.
