✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

We are seeing more people wanting to leave the hustle and bustle of the city and seeking out the quiet life in the country. But affordable properties are rare, there is a commute to consider and a new life style to create. One woman was lucky enough to find a property for herself and her family and they settled into the old farm house and large barn. Soon afterwards she found a little cat crying on her step and, being concerned, she started caring for her. With good food and comfort the cats belly began to expand and it was obvious that she was pregnant. A safe place was created for her in the barn and soon after she had four little kittens. Abby and her siblings were raised with love and affection, cradled by children and are all confident and family friendly. A rare thing for a cat rescue to find from a barn cat. We are grateful for the time and efforts that the woman and her children put into raising happy and healthy cats.

Personality:

Abby is a sweet and affectionate little cat who loves her siblings, caregivers and toys. She is easily picked up and cuddled, can be carried around and likes to interact with people. It was very interesting watching her discover toys and she quickly took to bounding after them and rolling around with the toy mouse. In all cases we hope that our kittens will have a playmate in their new home for company and play ability. Abby is a wonderful family friendly cat who is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her and one of her siblings into the family and keep them safely indoors.

Catie

✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

Catie is a kitty that was living in a very small village just minutes from the city limits. She made her rounds to the houses and some fed her, and she found shelter in other areas, but no one really knew where she came from and no one took her into their care. Catie was shy and unsure of people, but one man was able to pet her. He has seen her many times walking through his yard, across his patio and down his drive doing her rounds of the neighbourhood. He realized that Catie was incredibly thin and put some food out for her, then one day she appeared to be limping. Feeling that she needed help, he called around to see if anyone would help, and eventually found Pet Patrol. Once in our care, and after a vet examination it was felt that she has injured a tendon in her back left leg, and there was little to do to help that but time. Catie still has a bit of a limp but that doesn’t stop her from doing the stairs, jumping up on the climber and running around in play with the other cats.

Personality:

She has come around nicely from a timid and unsure cat, to one that rubs up against your legs, purrs deeply and likes to be pet. She is still guarded with that leg, but does like a good head and chin scratch and enjoys the attention of people. Catie is great with the other cats and will stand side by side with them, sharing the food dish and likes to have a cuddle with them as well. Catie is ready to be adopted into a gentle and serene home, hopefully with a kind companion kitty. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors

✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

A man contacted Pet Patrol, concerned about this little guy’s well being. It appears that Charlie was just dropped off behind the man’s house, which backs onto a trailer storage yard to fend for himself. All alone and without comfort or food! The man’s girl friend put food out for this new cat but he would initially run and hide for a bit and then return and eat everything when no one was around. He was starving. One night the woman called after him and waited. Charlie eventually came up close to her for his meal and this time he also let her pet him and he started to purr. Success. She needed to figure out a plan for Charlie and when she went inside he started to cry at the door for her to return. Much to her surprise when she opened the door he came running in and showered her with love. Unfortunately they could not keep him as they already had a few cats of their own and the woman called animal shelters to help. They said they would euthanize him if he was not claimed. Horrified at the thought of Charlie’s life being ended because he was unwanted she continued her search and finally found Pet Patrol.

Personality:

Charlie is a sweet boy who has put his trust in people before and they have failed him, except for this good hearted couple. He has proven to be an affectionate and lovable cat, who likes to be pet and cuddled. He will follow you around the house, interested in what you are doing and is good company. Having been given a chance to be a house cat again, he shows us his playful side and has developed an attraction for batting around the plastic springs cat toys and catnip mice too. Charlie is an all round nice cat and is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Cheeto

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.

Cinders

Rescue:

One of Pet Patrol’s volunteers who lives in a small village noticed Cinders at her feeding station. She has a heated cat house, heated water dishes and both dry and canned food out for the cats at all times. There have been as many as 16 cats eating on her porch at one time, and although some don’t like to share, they all seem to get their fill of food. Kittens are rescued and adopted out, ferals are rescued, spayed or neutered and released back to the environment that they know. There is food and water for them, and many of the cats migrate from the closest barn to her property, so they have shelter all year round. At least this way it will help to control the over population of felines in her area. Cinders started to really show his friendly side once the street bully was rescued, and finding him to be a friendly boy, was adopted. Now Cinders could relax and started to show his friendly side. He was a good supervisor for her while she was gardening, as he would watch her from the patio chair, and he was always on time for his breakfast and dinner. Eventually it was time for him to be rescued and brought into our care.

Personality:

Cinder is a calm and easy going cat, but one that we are seeking a nice hobby or horse farm for. He is not frightened of people but he is not touchable. He is great with other cats though, and can even be found cuddling up with them. What we look for in such farm properties is a heated room in the barn where they will be fed daily, have fresh water and access to the room at all times. There they can find warmth, privacy and can be kept track of on a daily basis. This handsome boy is ready to be adopted to a conscientious country property where he will be cared for.

Conan

Born: March 16, 2016

Rescue:

Homeless cat colonies are everywhere. When a cat is not spayed she will have a litter of kittens, once, twice and sometimes three times in a year. They will seek out shelter where ever they can, and buildings, sheds, decks and abandoned cars become shelter for them. Not ideal mind you, not like a home, but maybe enough to keep the wind, rain and snow off of them. Conan and his feline family were living in a trailer park close to a small town. The people living there were feeding some of the cats, but not doing anything about the breeding issues. When all of the female kittens mature, and breed in the same year, then the colony explodes rather quickly and helpless kittens are born unwanted. A woman was visiting her friend at the park and seeing the colony grow, they started to rescue some of the kittens and two of the moms. She brought Conan and his two sisters in and tried socializing them, then sought out rescue organizations to help with finding the cats permanent homes..

Personality:

Conan was unsure of his new foster home when he arrived with his sisters. He soon warmed up and purrs beautifully when pet and is now quite a confident and lovable cat. Like his mother he is a gentle player, and can be found sharing a toy with the other cats of his own age. He likes cardboard boxes, toys that dangle and the cat tunnel is a favourite. Conan is a very handsome boy with auburn colours in his coat which are rich and make him quite handsome. He is ready to be adopted into an adult only home that is predictable and easy going. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Cooper (Kitten)

Rescue:

Cooper is an orphan. Pet Patrol received a call about a young kitten who had been crying all night long from underneath a mobile home. This property was surrounded by farm fields and busy highways, and there was no mother cat in sight. The people who own the trailer tried in vain to get under the trailer to find the kittens and rescue them, but they were not agile enough. The next morning one of our volunteers, who is slim and has long arms, was able to crawl under the trailer and save this poor kitten. What he found under the trailer was a lot of mud, as there had been a number of rainy days leading up to this. Visibly there were pipes and wiring for the trailer and a few nonperishable items, then he found a hole. It was like a large pipe in the ground that was filled with soft, wet mud and there was little Cooper, crying for his life. As sad as it sounds, the only way this kitten survived was by sitting on his siblings who had passed away. They insulated him from the chilling wet mud. He was one happy kitten to he held, warmed up and fed.

Personality:

Cooper is a very outgoing and fun loving kitten. He was very lucky when he arrived at Pet Patrol that we had a nursing mother cat, with two kittens of the same age. She took to him immediately and he is so grateful for this chance at life. New things can frighten him sometimes, but within a minute or two he will be inspecting it. He is sweet, gentle and adventurous. It would be a good idea that he be adopted into a home with a buddy, as he needs the companionship and someone to cuddle up to. This little one likes to be picked up and carried around and he is definitely a lap cat. Cooper is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Danny and his siblings came from a barn where they were lucky enough to be fed and sheltered. The owner of the property was working with a local rescue group and wanted the kittens rehomed and the adult cats spayed and neutered. She no longer wanted to add to the overpopulation of cats in her barn. But there was one female cat that was very elusive and they were unable to rescue her last fall, and this spring she became pregnant. Again they attempted to rescue her; with a few different methods this time, but she outsmarted us all. She gave birth to her five kittens in the hayloft and the owner contacted us to see if we would help with this litter as well. The kittens were easy to rescue because they were so small at the time, eating on their own but not quite eight weeks of age. The mother cat was finally rescued and spayed and is still in the barn enjoying her freedom. In the meantime her kittens Danny, Della, Dolly, Duncan and Dotty have become happy and healthy kittens.

Personality:

Danny and all of his litter mates are complete snuggle bugs! They want to be curled up in your lap for a nice nap and if you’re not petting them, they will let you know by mewing and patting you with a paw. They’ve been handled by young children and totally love the attention. Danny is a real people cat and will always come to you for some love. He is very sweet and gentle. and likes when you sit on the floor with him. He is happy to be picked up and cooed to. He is a playful kitten and likes his toys, tunnels and kitty climber. Danny is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family, hopefully with a sibling, and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Pet Patrol became aware of Darius and the serious situation in which he was living when a call was received from a Veterinarian. A woman, one of his clients, is a severe hoarder and her home has an extraordinary amount of clutter and cats, which has built up over time. She admitted that she had thirty five cats and fourteen kittens living in her home with her. It is a confined space, extremely unclean and an unhealthy environment for all. Darius lived with the constant smell of urine and feces, as well as dust and mold issues.The woman was employed and provided the cats with premium cat food, however she was unable to have them spayed or neutered. Subsequently, because of the deterioration of the rental property, she has been evicted from her home. With the help of the Veterinarian, Pet Patrol and other cat rescue organizations we are bringing the cats into our care for adoption.

Personality:

Darius is a very handsome boy with a shiny black coat. He likes to be petted when he is laying down, and will seek you out when you look like you need company. He gets along very well with other cats and has become more open and comfortable with new people and his new foster home. It certainly must have been over whelming for him in the beginning. Darius loves to lay in the window and soak up all the sun. Like most black cats he thinks he is solar powered. This lovely boy is playful and will give a bouncing ball a run for its money and can chase down a laser pen light like no other. He is a smaller and slimmer cat that other males and is gentle and sweet in nature. Darius is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Dash (Kitten)

Rescue:

It is not uncommon for cats to be abandoned, whether it is in the city or the country, and left to fend for themselves. They have no real resources for the kind of comfort they have been raised in and many don’t survive. One woman who owns a mixed farm (cows, horses, goats and sheep) has had several cats dropped off at the end of her lane, and she has chosen to help them along the way. They are well taken care of and she provides them with a box stall in her barn that is set up with a play area for the cats. This includes scratching posts, comfy beds, insulated houses, toys to play with and she takes time to socialize them. They are well fed, cared for and loved. One day an orange female cat, Dot, showed up at the barn and it was obvious she was pregnant, so the woman scooped her up and put her in the stall. Dot was very friendly and she had her kittens, Dash & Ditto, the next day. The woman had been working with a TNR group to have all her barn cats spayed and neutered, and she felt that Dot needed a place where she could raise her kittens in a warm and comfortable home. The next day they were taken to one of Pet Patrol’s foster homes and all have thrived since then.

Personality:

Dash is described by her foster family as a fireball/diva. She wants things her way and if not, she will let you know. She doesn’t like to be picked up too much but does like to be pet and receive scratches around her neck and head. She was the first of the litter to figure out how to run around the door of her nursery and how to climb up onto the big bed. She doesn’t seem to want to meet the cats or the family dog but she has met children and has done ok with them. Dash is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Personality:

Ditto is a sweet boy. When he was a tiny baby he needed to touch his foster mom all the time for comfort. He is more adventurous now, playful and outgoing but still a cuddle bug after he has burned some energy. He will be OK to be introduced to other cats as he has met some adults, but is less sure of the family dog. In time that could change. Ditto is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

While sitting in the office at the Pet Patrol sanctuary, one of our volunteers noticed a cat, nonchalantly walking past the window. He was thin but the most outstanding thing about him was his tail, or lack thereof. It was a bloody stump. The cat stopped and looked at our volunteer and held his ground when she opened the window and put out a plate of canned food. He then turned and walked away. Hmmm. Over the next few months he was approached, but ran away, noticed laying Spinx like in the long grass, and strolling across the back lawn. Several attempts to rescue him by using a humane trap failed and we thought we would never be able to help him. Late one evening someone noticed him going under the garden shed. There was no real shelter under there and it was obvious that this dear boy was not seeking to over winter in the nearby barn. He had nowhere to go. The humane trap was set up once more, alongside the shed and finally on the second night he was rescued. The very next morning he was taken into the vet clinic and several inches amputated off of his tail, he was neutered and any injuries attended to. His recovery was successful.

Personality:

It took a while to gain Doc’s trust, as he was outside for quite a while, but now he is out and about in the sanctuary. He was quite happy to see other cats in our care and integrated in without any issue. Doc has become quite an affectionate lap cat at his foster home. He loves to stretch out next to (or on top of) his foster dad while purring loudly, and will even greet his people at the door. He loves to play with all sorts of toys, and can often be found chasing stuffed mice or toy springs around the house. Now that he’s learned about all the perks of being an indoor cat, he’s shown zero interest in going back outside. Doc is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Personality:

Dot has adjusted to living indoors, but because she was raising her kittens she had not had full run of the house. That will be an adventure for her. She is an affectionate cat, likes the attention, and is content to be with her people. She has learned how much fun toys can be and is quite kitten like at times. Dot was a very attentive mother cat and also took care of an orphan kitten as well, so we predict she will be good company in her forever home. Dot is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Eliza’s grandma, Ezra, came to Pet Patrol with a lot of offspring. Her sons Elam, Elijah, Edison and daughters Ella and Eva. Plus 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 located way off the main road. A young family was renting the house and the children 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 which in one way was nice because they didn’t have to worry about cold nights, rainy days or the hot sun. But
being allowed to roam freely created other problems like becoming prey to coyote and fox. There were a few harrowing experiences for them during that time. Having other pets for their own, and now another litter of kittens born to the now grown daughters, was becoming unmanageable for the family. They eventually found Pet Patrol and all the cats were all brought into our care. They have proven to be very nice pets and deserve a forever home.

Personality:

Eliza is the last remaining cat from that small feline family. She is gentle, loving and fun. She is like any indoor family pet, carefree and takes in the love and attention of the people around her. She is used to children and other cats, and even the gentle family dog was a friend. She has shown us her expertise at chasing down and catching a fly that got into the building, with agility and style. Toys are so very interesting to her, and she loves the little kitty house on top of the big cat climber. Eliza’s sweet face and deep appreciative purr gives her the ability to steal hearts. What a gem! She is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Elsa’s little life began in a home we assume, because she is so sweet and friendly. She was obviously handled by people, petted and picked up. But when she came to Pet Patrol’s attention she had been found roaming aimlessly in a subdivision. It was located on the edge of town, a quiet neighbourhood with friendly people. According to the woman who reported them, someone had dropped off five house cats near her home. She had never seen them before, but between her and a neighbour they made sure the cats were fed. They began to worry about the cats because the weather was very cold, rainy and unpredictable (the woman didn’t know where the cats were finding shelter), and they wanted to see them safely indoors. Elsa came with her brother and were easy to rescue and they have settled into indoor living quite well. The other cats were brought indoors as well and are with another rescue organization.

Personality:

Elsa is a friendly and affectionate, playful and fun loving young cat. She fit into the sanctuary lifestyle which tells us that she is used to living with other cats, and gets along with them very well. Elsa is gentle and sweet, likes to be pet and purrs quietly. It took her a bit of time to adjust to her new surroundings, new people and routine. It was a bit overwhelming for her at first but she snuggled up to her caregiver for comfort and looked to the other cats for guidance. Soon she was investigating everything. Elsa is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that at will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Farrah may never have had a proper home before Pet Patrol rescued her, but she certainly knew how to provide for her litter. Being unspayed and abandoned on the street, it was just a matter of time before she became pregnant, and she found the perfect shelter to have her kittens: a garden shed that backed onto a restaurant. The shed was dry and filled with storage, so she could make a nest. The orchard in front of it, leading to the house, was over grown but provided her little ones with a wonderland for playing. The restaurant dumpster allowed Farrah to scrounge for food daily. A student began feeding Farrah cat food, when she saw how thin she was, and soon the little kittens emerged too. A Pet Patrol volunteer went over and it took only 3 hours to rescue the four kittens, and finally Farrah was brought in the next evening. All were frightened and wary of people, because they had never been handled before. It took time and patience, but finally they came around and enjoy the affections and good life people can provide.

Personality:

Farrah is a beautiful pewter grey kitty, with highlights of blue when she lays in the sun. She is not a big cat, but compact and solid. Farrah is enjoying her life without the extra stress of hunting for food, and protecting her active kittens from predators. She is quite a couch potato now, and is very good with the other cats in her foster home. She is still shy with new people, but allows her foster Dad to pet her every evening (it has become a ritual). She has no interest in going outside, that has only lead to fear, starvation and exposure to the elements in the past. Farah enjoys life on a comfy bed or in front of the fireplace. She is part of our Commitment of the Heart Program since she chooses other pets over people. 🙂

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a call from a woman worried about the number of cats in her backyard and over flowing into the neighborhood. About three years ago a little tortoise shell cat arrived under her back deck, inside a gopher hole. This was Gabrielle. She was well protected, but it took the woman months to gain the cat’s trust. Unable to bring the cat into the home, she provided a well insulated cat house and food, water and affection every day. Fast forward to this spring and the same kitty had produced two litters each year, and her offspring were either rescued or left to roam the streets. The neighbours were now fed up with the growing population of cats and started to trap them. Those they got were taken to a farm, and Pet Patrol was informed about the most recent litter just as they were rounding them up to send off to the same property. This farm apparently does not feed the cats, and the cats that had been taken there already had not stayed. Cats will leave an environment if it is unsafe, has no protective shelter and no food provided. How very, very sad. Gabrielle, her daughter Gaia, and her eight tiny grand kittens were brought into Pet Patrol care where they have all thrived.

Personality:

Gabrielle is a very sweet cat, who responds to being called Momma. She is curious and concerned at the same time while living at the sanctuary, partly because of the number of cats here, and partly because she misses the lady who cared for her for many years. She responds to her main care giver, liking to be pet and cooed to, showing promise that when in the right home she would be the happy and affectionate cat that we know she can be. Just a little time and patience, soft talks and being enticed yummy treats. Like all Torti’s she is intelligent and assesses situations quickly. Torti’s bond closely to their owners and are loyal to their families. Gabrielle is quite attached to her daughter Gaia, and it would be nice if they could be adopted together. They are ready to be welcomed into their forever family and kept safely indoors.

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a call from a woman worried about the number of cats in her back yard and over flowing into the neighborhood. About three years ago a little tortoise shell cat (Gabrielle) arrived in her yard and took up residence under her back deck, inside a gopher hole. It took the woman six months to gain the cats’ trust, but in the meantime built a well insulated cat house on the deck and served up food, water and affection every day. Fast forward to this spring and the same kitty had produced two litters each year, and her offspring were either rescued or left to roam the streets. The neighbours were now fed up with the growing population of cats coming from the one back yard, and started to trap them. Those they got were taken to a farm, and Pet Patrol was notified about the most recent litter just as they were rounding them up and sending them off to the same isolated property. This farm apparently does not feed the cats, and the ones that had been taken there already had not stayed. Cats will leave an environment if it is unsafe, has no protective shelter and no food available. How very, very sad. The plans were immediately changed and Gabrielle, her daughter Gaia, and eight tiny kittens were brought into Pet Patrol care where they have all thrived.

Personality:

Gaia is extremely sweet, and loves to be part of everything and roam through the house. Once she is comfortable with her people she will greet you at the door and tip toe around looking for attention and affection. She is quite generous with rewarding you with her little purr. Gaia LOVES her treats and will let you know it! She is energetic, playful and with her slim physique she easily fits in the kitty tunnel. Gaia is quite attached to her mother Gabrielle, and it would be nice if they could be adopted together. They are both ready to be welcomed into their family and kept safely indoors.

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.

Rescue:

Jackson was rescued from a feral colony, one where the cats had no trust in people, have never been handled and were generally living by luck alone. The woman who was manning their feeding station called our TNR program for help, they just could not continue to live like this. They were living behind a group of houses in a subdivision in the city. There was a big garage there and the cats found shelter inside it and inside sheds in the area. They are all very street smart and very suspicious of the humane trap, so much so that she was only ever able to rescue one adult cat to have it altered. When our volunteer took on the site she rescued twelve kittens and they have been very challenging to tame. Although they have been able to keep the population down by getting the kittens, they have not been able to rescue the moms. Very Very smart cats. Jackson is a true success and has become quite the sweetheart

Personality:

Jackson was not sure what people were all about when he first came into care and was in a foster home. But with time and patience his true happy personality came through. He has definitely changed and he is now people friendly. Jackson likes being petted and having his belly rubbed which is a sign of trust. In his previous foster home he would often come to visit his care giver in bed at night, sleeps on the bed with other cats and the family dog. He actually cuddles with the dog at every chance. Jackson will come from anywhere in the house for his favorite treats and greet you at the door when you come home. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors..

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 and his brothers were timid cats when they first arrived at Pet Patrol, but with time and patience have become sweet natured cats. They are polite and relaxed, they love other cats and like to be pet and brushed. When you are sitting on the couch or laying in bed, they will come and flop down beside you. They are attentive to other cats, and show their affection many times a day, so Pet Patrol is looking for a home that has a buddy cat for them, or hopefully a sibling. Jamie is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the home and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Jimmy’s story is a common one. A friendly stray cat shows up at someone’s door, apparently lost, no collar and tags, no microchip identification and not neutered. A young family noticed him walking around their property looking under the deck and checking out the house by peering in the patio doors. cross the road from the house is a creek that leads to the river and a grove of trees. They have seen cats in there before and rescued a number of them over the years. This home is surrounded by farms, so it is not uncommon for the cats to migrate from barn to barn, especially when the weather warms up. Jimmy showed them that he was friendly and affectionate right away. He was obviously handled by people before and knows what petting means and all about being picked up. We are happy to invite Jimmy to be part of Pet Patrol and find him a good home.

Personality:

Jimmy is very trusting and came right inside the house for food. He soon received a lot of petting and displayed his soft purr. He is not afraid of water, as they washed his face and white paws when he arrived. He likes to be held and looks up at you with his gorgeous green eyes. He is a calm cat and would be good company for anyone. He is not especially fond of other cats, but we think would be ok with a dog or as an only cat. Jimmy is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Marcus and his brother Micah were first noticed in a scrap yard a number of months ago. It was in an industrial area, and they stayed behind the chain link fence most of the time, rarely venturing further. Somewhere in the depths of metal junk they found a place for shelter. It certainly was not warm or completely weather proof, but it was all they had. A young couple started feeding them, and although the kittens were shy, they started coming closer and closer as their trust was gained. They were soon coming under the fence for attention and food, and the couple were able to pick them up and cuddle them. Micah was very friendly but his little brother Marcus took a bit more time. Both could be placed on your lap and they seemed quite content to cuddle right in. As winter was approaching the couple were unsure of what to do, but they didn’t want to leave the cats there to the brutal winter winds and snow. They reached out to social media and eventually the cats came to Pet Patrol.

Personality:

Marcus did not know what to think when he first came into the sanctuary. There were boundaries like walls, doors, windows and ceilings. Things were clean, and there was plenty of food, fresh water and the beds were so soft. It took a little time for him to feel comfortable, but soon he was sitting beside you and purring happily. It has been fun to watch him explore toys, the kitty climber and looking out the windows from the second story, a birds eye view. We feel that Marcus would do well in a private home, rather than at the sanctuary, where he would get more one to one attention and bring out his affectionate side. He is ready to be adopted into a forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Pet patrol received an email from a woman who had found two kittens in her yard. This was Mariana and her brother Marco. They were rather tiny at that time and she wasn’t sure what to do. It is not unusual for mother cats to seek out shelter under a deck or shed, in garden houses and carports to have their kittens. Any place that will provide safety and shelter will do, because they have nothing else. The woman put food out for them and as the kittens grew she realized that they should be rescued so that they had an opportunity to have a safe and loving home. The mother cat by then had disappeared and they were on their own. When she contacted Pet Patrol the woman had offered to foster them and help to socialize them until ready for adoption. They were neutered and spayed while in her care and did well. Soon they came to Pet patrol and have continued to thrive.

Personality:

Mariana is a beautiful black kitty with such a glossy coat. She is also a bobtail, which means she was born with just a little bit of a tail. She is very gentle and sweet natured. Does not mind being picked up and cuddled and carried around. She is unsure of new surroundings at first but soon her curiosity kicks in and she explores everything in the house. She is playful and fun loving, likes to look out the window, hang around on the top perch of the kitty climber and cuddle with the other cats. Especially her brother Marco. This pretty girl is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors

Rescue:

Max was living with his owner who was eighty seven years old. He had a quiet and comfortable life, lots of petting and snuggles in front of the TV. There were a few visitors, most were family who helped the man out since his partner had been moved to a nursing home. She unfortunately suffered from Alzheimer and was unable to stay at home. So Max was great company for this elderly man who had his challenges as well. When he went into the hospital and doctors had to amputate his other leg, the family knew he would never be returning home. What to do with Max? No one in the family wanted him. This is not an uncommon, but an incredibly sad situation when a senior is unable to look after their pet any longer and no one else wants it. Luckily a foster home came forward just as Max came into our care and he was able to go from one home to the other easily.

Personality:

Being an only cat in a very quiet home, Max is used to having his own space and can be a little shy at first. Everything is new to him and in the beginning it can be a bit over whelming. But he will seek you out for petting with mewing like a kitten. It is very sweet. He does enjoy gentle belly rubs and being brushed. He actually has experienced a shoulder ride in his foster home and was ok with that, and loves to explore his new environment. Max is ready for his next adventure, a new home, and he will again make someone very happy. A home that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Mickey was a surprise rescue. One of our volunteers who was trying to rescuer her own cat, who is quite mischievous and likes to scoot outside, set up her humane trap. Her cat is pure white and easy to spot, not only for herself but for wildlife who may prey on him. She placed the trap in the barn as she had noticed him going through there on a daily basis, usually in the late morning and early evening. Around noon the next day she noticed that the door was closed on the trap and hurried towards it hoping it was her boy. Instead she found Mickey. She had only noticed him on a few rare occasions sniffing around her garbage bins near the back door. As soon as he realized he was being watched he would run away quickly. She thought he might have come from a neighboring barn, but they were many fields away. Immediately Mickey was brought into Pet Patrol care and he soon proved that he was friendly and affectionate. Her own cat was later rescued.

Personality:

Although shy to begin with, Mickey has really become quite the nice little cat. He likes when you pet him and give him a nice back massage, he purrs easily and likes to rub up against your legs. He is slim and needs to put on a pound or two, but that will come with time and comfort. He is fine with other cats, and he will be found laying near them and bunting heads with them too. He is a dear little cat who is learning about being indoors and appears to be quite content with it. Mickey is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Pretty little Mopsey was found hanging around someone’s garage, on the edge of town in an old subdivision. The owners of the property had no idea where she came from. When found she was very, very cold, thin, scruffy and malnourished. Even though her medium long hair made her look like she had good weight on her, underneath she was just skin and bones. When her rescuer brushed her out she had a huge pile of dry and matted hair afterwards. Mopsey had been holding on for dear life in regards to her health while she was on the streets, and soon after coming into care she took very ill. She became dehydrated and had to get medical care to bring her health back up. At the time the vet only gave her a 50-50 chance. With the excellent care of her rescuer, she regained her health and has thrived ever since. This just shows how hard it is for these wee cats to live on the street. She’s done well in her rescue home with the friendly dogs and the other rescue cats.

Personality:

Mopsey is a very friendly and affectionate cat. She shows the love every single day. She is so happy to be rescued and looked after and have a carefree life. She’s very appreciative, playful and active in her rescue home. She’s good company with the other cats, the foster caregivers, and has made her self very much at home. She is content to be indoors and living the good life. This pretty little cat is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely in doors.

A young family was renting a house on a country property, that had a long lane way and a small colony of cats in the ancient barn. One day they discovered Paris running around their out building and they suspected she was dropped off. She was young, thin and in desperate need of some care. They worked hard at gaining her trust and making sure she was fed, and eventually she was welcomed into the house. Soon after another cat arrived, a handsome orange male (Palmer) and he too was rescued. Because neither cat was altered, and they were allowed outside, it resulted in several litters of kittens born all living in the barn. In the fall they were given notice by the landlord that the house was going to be torn down and that they would have to move. They realized that they had created a colony of cats (who will continue to breed indiscriminately) and were now going to be abandoned and left to starve. They reached out to a TNR program who began taking in the cats and kittens, and finding them new homes. Paris, Palmer and their six kittens, all orange and called the “pot of gold kittens” were all brought into Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

Paige is more of a girly girl than her siblings. She likes to be picked up, cuddled and carried around. She is of a gentle nature and doesn’t like to rough play but likes to be the boss of everything. She is playful and active, and will run around with her brother Pogi, who she is quite attached to. They are inseparable. Toys of all kinds keep her entertained and a cardboard box goes a long way. She is investigative and fun loving. Paige is ready to be adopted into her forever home with her brother Pogi. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them 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. Patsy was part of that colony and she 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 Patsy, Harrison and Freda are thriving in the sanctuary.

Personality:

Patsy first hissed at her caregiver at Pet Patrol, only because she did not know them and was not sure why she was there. She 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 she must have wondered. But immediately upon petting her, she flopped over and showed her belly and she was excited to have her ear rubbed and be petted from head to tail. She has integrated in with the other cats very well, and made herself at home. She likes to gaze out the window and see the world outside, but is content stay put inside. Patsy is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

They realized that they had created a colony of cats (who will continue to breed indiscriminately) and were now going to be abandoned and left to starve. They reached out to a TNR program who began taking in the cats and kittens, and finding them new homes. Paris, Palmer and their six kittens, all orange and called the “pot of gold kittens” were all brought into Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

Pogi is a busy boy and is always on the go, playing with toys and his siblings. He joins in on games of Tag, Catch the Tail and Hide & Seek, but he will also go off on an adventure on his own but not for long as he is quite attached to his sister Paige. They are inseparable. He likes to see what’s new, and doesn’t miss much, is quite cuddly and affectionate. He loves his people and sister and at bedtime will curl up with both. Pogi is ready to be adopted into his forever home with his sister Paige. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors.

Rescue:

Regis was first spotted just before the wicked winter weather hit. It was still cold and wet outside, and he was walking through one of our volunteers back yards. He was frightened easily, but the woman still put food out for him and he returned shortly to devour it. She didn’t see him on a daily basis and hardly at all during the worst part of winter. She hoped that he had found a barn to find shelter in, but food was scarce and she was afraid for him. In the spring she finally saw him again, and he resumed being skittish and took off as soon as she opened the back door. But again he returned. On the second day he stopped and looked back at her when he ran away, which is a good sign. The third day he meowed at her and just sat in the yard waiting for her to go back in the house. Each time she put out food for him. On the fourth day he waited for her on the deck and she was able to sit about ten feed away from him. On day five he was rolling around on the floor, she was rubbing his belly and he was purring up a storm. Regis was truly and friendly and affectionate cat, and so very grateful tor the food, love and attention he was receiving. Soon afterwards he was brought into Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

Regis showed his friendliness right from the beginning. He was kind and gentle, loves to be pet and have a nice back massage. He really looks forward to being brushed and it helps to take out all the dead winter fur. He is curious about the other cats, watching them play and we look forward to him integrating in with them. Regis likes his people a lot, and is learning about toys, wands, dangly things and toy mice as opposed to the real ones that he saw in the country. 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. He is very sweet.

FEMALE
Born: April 2017
Colour: Dilute Torti
Eyes: Gold
Spayed & Vaccinated

Microchipped

✔ Quiet home
✔ Active home
✔ Adult home
✘ Children under 12
✘ Children over 12
✔ Other cats
?  Dogs (passive)
✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

There was a colony of young cats found near the main street of the city, who were living in a red shed. Pet Patrol had rescued quite a few of them throughout the winter and was called in to see if we could help Sarah, one of the last cats to be rescued. She was being fed by an elderly woman who was concerned that she might become pregnant, and didn’t want to see the population of the colony increase again. This little dilute Torti just wanted inside the house and tried to get in every chance she could. Sarah had very different colouring than the rest of the cats and wasn’t frightened of people at all. We are not sure if she was really part of that colony or abandoned by her owners to fend for herself. But she is now safely in Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

Sarah initially seemed unsure about being indoors. It’s a different feeling with the boundaries of ceilings, windows and doors but soon she was stretching out and making herself at home. She likes to be pet and is quite affectionate and sweet. Head rubs, back massages and a nice scratch under the chin go a long way. Sarah is looking for a family who will take the time to know her and are patient. She will return that gift by giving her parents the same love and respect a million times over. She is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safety indoors.

Suzy & Sascha

Colour: Tabby & White
Eyes: Gold
Spayed & Vaccinated

Microchipped

✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

A woman who is familiar with Pet Patrol, and who cleans houses for a living, was helping an elderly couple to be able to stay in their home. One day when cats came up in the conversations, the couple mentioned that they had been looking after several cats on their property. They could pet them and they fed them daily. They knew that eventually homes needed to be found for the cats. The couple were really getting on in years and would soon have to leave their home and find something easier. Suzy and Sascha were their favourite cats and came into Pet Patrol care as mother and daughter and are used to being with people. The husband said that he would sit in the backyard and Suzy would sit on his lap. How nice for these cats to have someone watching out for them. Suzy, being a little more concerned, was a bit shy but soon she came out of her shell and her daughter Sascha was a wonderful little girl right from the beginning.

Personality:

This mother cat and her daughter are very kind and gentle, and also inseparable. They cuddle up together, as their photo shows, all the time. One never far from the other. Suzy is a lovely, stocky little cat who likes to be pet, plays with balls and dangling ribbon from a wand toy, and she likes to look out the window at the world going by. Sascha is also sweet natured and she loves her people to pet her and play with her. Both who have fit into the multi cat sanctuary quite well. They are ready to be adopted into their forever home together. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors
