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:

Abram 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. Abram is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors

Rescue:

It is always a sad situation when a cat is left outside to try and find food and shelter for itself, and kindness from strangers. It isn’t always possible and often their pleas for help are ignored. “Don’t feed the cat and it will go away.” To where? It’s hungry and it’s frightened from being on guard all the time from predators and unkind people. Such was the case of Baby Girl’s mother Kitty Kitty, it seemed that she had given up and just laid right down in the open gutter, waiting for someone to help her. Her last ditch effort (no pun intended). Finally someone took note and notified one of our volunteers. Upon being pet and picked up, it was obvious that KK was very pregnant. A short time later, in the safely of her foster home she had two kittens (one was Baby Girl) and they all thrived in Pet Patrol care. Fast forward two years and all three of the cats had long been adopted, but then we received a call from Baby Girls owner. She was hardly home any more, jobs had changed, lifestyle change and she felt she just couldn’t give her kitty the time she deserved. So Baby Girl is back in Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

This is one sweet girl! Baby Girl fit right into the sanctuary, where there are a lot of cats living, playing and waiting for their forever home. She would sit in her kitty bed on the window sill and watch all the other cats and kittens play, and keep an eye on the neighbourhood as well. She is very gentle and loving, and likes to be pet, cuddled and brushed too. Although Baby Girl was fostered in a home with dogs, other cats and older children and was part of the family, we feel she would do best as an only cat. She is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Brandie (Kitten)

Rescue:

Brandie and her sister Brie were living amongst a lot of other cats in a crowded apartment. The owner could no longer take care of them and wanted to just let them outside to fend for themselves. Problem is, it is illegal to abandon an animal and cats cannot survive outside without daily feeding and proper shelter. It is unfair to the house cat to expect them to go from a climate controlled environment with food, water and comfort and expect them to manage homelessness with success. As the story unfolded we learned that the owner was being evicted and all the other pets had to be rehomed as well. None had ever been to a vet and so Brandie and Brie were not spayed or vaccinated. Soon after coming into our care we discovered that these girls were sweet and friendly and were enjoying their new life of leisure. They have since been spayed, vaccinated and micro chipped.

Personality:
Brandie is a such nice little cat. She is friendly and affectionate, loves her people and loves her sister Brie as well. They do seek each other out for cuddles and play and it is delightful to watch them interact with each other. It took a little longer for Brie to adjust to her new environment, about a week, but then she just blossomed. During that time Brandie was not too far away and curled up with her all the time. Brandie and Brie are ready to be adopted into their forever home. One that will welcome them into their family and keep them safely indoors

Rescue:

On a busy, hot summer afternoon a man approached one of our volunteers at the sanctuary.  He asked if this was a cat rescue and he happily announced he had a kitten for us.  It is unusual for people to come to our facility without an appointment as we have limited space and resources.  He said that he had been trapping the squirrels in his neighbourhood and had relocated 17 so far.  He had caught this little one twice and thought he had better help him out.  He had him inside a cardboard box, on the front seat of his car, and once brought inside we opened the box and found a tiny little kitten.  Cache was very thin, dirty and dehydrated.  His eyes were dull and he was very weak and sad looking.  Immediately he was fed and he gulped down the canned food and had a long drink of water.  His eyes started to shine, he looked up from his almost empty dish and meowed at our volunteer. Sweetest little thank you we ever had.

Personality:

Cache has blossomed since then.  He has steadily put on weight and will come right up to his caregivers for a pet and a purr.  He is happy, playful and loves a good cuddle.  He has started to race around after every toy he can find, and likes to cuddle up with the other foster kittens.  Cache is easy to pick up and cradle in your arms, he will fall asleep on your lap and looks at you with total love.  He is adorable. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home.  One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

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 reassured but he is still shy. 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.

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 male sand is gentle and sweet in nature. Darius is ready to be adopted into a forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

One of Pet Patrol’s volunteers recently visited a family who had asked for some help finding homes for their cats and kittens. They had a few beloved cats of their own, and had taken in two more when a close relative sadly passed away. The only cats spayed or neutered were the ones that were inherited. Three females and two males, all adults, are not altered and the resulting of a mature Donovan and his Dad Davey, plus twelve kittens are now a strain on their ability to give everybody the love and attention they need, and Vet care is not even in the budget. Our volunteer mentioned that the family lives in an apartment in a beautiful old building, but they now have ten cats in total (they would not relinquish three of the kittens to us). We are still in negotiations to help the family have their cats spayed or neutered so that the over population in their home will not continue.

Personality:

Donovan is all about sweetness and cuddles. When he first came into our care he hid under the blankets all the time, and we are thinking this is a habit from his previous busy home. If he was feeling insecure, that is where he will be. His foster mom spent a lot of time hugging him and talking to him gently, reassuring him that all was good. Nice relaxing massages and smooches seemed to do the trick. Donovan rarely hides now and is out and about with the other cats. He is so gentle and lovable, he just steals your heart. We have enjoyed watching him learn about toys and exploring his new environment. He is excited to be in a happy place. Donovan is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors

Rescue:

Eliza’s grandma, Ezra, came to Pet Patrol with a lot of offspring. 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:

Eliza is gentle, loving and fun. She is like her sister. 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. She has shown us her expertise at chasing down and catching a fly that got into the building. She has a lovable sweet face, a deep appreciative purr and the ability to steal hearts. What a gem! Eliza is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that 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 Committment 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:

Pet Patrol received a message from a university student, who helps to manage a small apartment building. She noticed a mother cat and her kittens playing in the bushes behind the parking lot. It was a fairly safe place because it was away from the road, behind the building and there was a lawn between them and the driveway. But that would only last until the kittens got older and started to explore. Being proactive the student knew that for their safety and survival this feline family needed to be rescued. They borrowed two traps from Pet Patrol to double their chances of rescuing them. Success. Once in her care they were quickly adopted by people she knew would have them spayed/neutered and kept indoors, but little Georgie was on his own. She continued to care for him, and tried to find a home for him as well, but no luck and soon he came into Pet Patrol care. At the time of this writing, the mother cat had disappeared, but the word has been put out for neighbours and other tenants to keep an eye out for her. She needs to be rescued as well.

Personality:

Initially Georgie was very frightened of his new surroundings. Once his siblings were gone and he came to Pet Patrol, there was nothing familiar for him. No mom, no brothers or sisters, no familiar bed or toys. It was all new and pretty overwhelming. But with the help of volunteers who would sit and cuddle him, and help take the stress away, he has come a long way and is now a happy go lucky kitty, playing and jumping around with the rest of them. Georgie is looking for a home with a playmate or another kitty from Pet Patrol that he is used to. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.
