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 to 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 with his BFF Aya. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a call from their veterinarian clinic that there was a female cat who was in crisis. She was trying to deliver her kittens however the first one was stuck in the birthing canal. It required a very expensive emergency C-section and spay to save not only the kittens but the mother cat as well. The family could not afford it. The only options were to euthanize the cat or to relinquish custody to the clinic. The latter is what they did with heavy hearts and many tears. They said goodbye to their lovely cat at the clinic and soon afterwards the surgery commenced. The first kitten didn’t survive as he was stuck, and then Adora and Archie were born. They were fostered in an excellent home that had a vast amount of experience with cats and they thrived. The momma cat has been adopted; she is a cross between a Bengal and a Siamese, has beautiful exotic green eyes. The kittens have inherited their mother’s personality as they are very outgoing and interested in people. They are lovely little cats.

Personality:

Both kittens are very fun loving, energetic, easy to pick up and cuddle, and are fearless. Adora is the chatty one and she is interested in getting your attention by asking a lot of questions and will let you know when she wants something. Archie probably just can’t get a word in edgewise, he is a quieter kitten but by no means laid-back. Like all kittens they love to play and investigate everything, any type of toy, box, closet or drawer etc. are all there for their enjoyment. They are definitely entertaining. Adora and Archie are ready to be adopted into their forever home. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors.

✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

Pet Patrol was given information from a woman who does some animal rescue of her own. She had a full house with cats, dogs, a baby goat even and a few chickens. She just could not take in any more animals when approached by one of her neighbours in the trailer park. It was a man who is kind to his pets and had cared for Amelia and Apollo since they were young cats. He found them as strays in the neighbourhood he used to live in, and brought them into his home. They were loved and kept indoors, but were never taken to the vet (not spayed/neutered or vaccinated) and were fed economical cat food. At this time in his life his relationship was falling apart, due to addictions, and he was being evicted from his girl friends home. He was able to secure a low end hotel room until he got back on his feet, but the cats were not allowed there. He had tried to find friends or family to temporarily foster them, but no one stepped forward, even for a short period of time. Pet Patrol was eventually contacted and Amelia and Apollo came into our care.

Personality:

Amelia is a very agile and active kitty, affectionate, gentle and who loves her caregivers. She likes to be on their lap, purring happily with her little paws kneading the air. She was a little timid when she first arrived, but after a short period of time she settled in, explored her new environment and relaxed. She is curious and likes to know what is going on in the house, she will sit with you on the couch and enjoy an afternoon snooze too. Amelia is fine with other cats, as long as they are passive and accepting of her. Catnip toys, the kitty climber and scratching post are passions, and she will skitter across the floor after a plastic spring toy as well. She has beautiful, striking green eyes that will just draw you in and make you smile. She is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Personality:

Apollo is a handsome boy who is friendly, affectionate and really likes his people. He was treated gently and with love in his former home and it shows in his kind personality. He loves to lay in the sunbeam, paws at toys like catnip mice and likes to chase after the laser pen light. He is a cuddler and will lay on your lap or sleep by your feet at bedtime. He is good company for his people and with his housemate, Amelia, and they get along well. Now neutered and vaccinated, Apollo is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

There is a young woman who lives in a small town and has a feeding station on her front porch. She had as many as sixteen cats at one time, needing proper nutrition, shelter and someone to watch over them. They arrive year round, even during the worst months when it is bitterly cold in the winter, and scorching hot and humid in the summer. Most are not friendly cats and are skittish and wary of people, but they return daily for the food. Arial was different. She arrived at the feeding station like the others but immediately showed how friendly and affectionate she is. But when it came time for her to be rescued it was a different story. The humane trap was used because Arial didn’t trust being picked up at that time. She went inside it, tempted by the nice stinky food placed at the back, and when the trap tripped and the door shut she became frantic. She actually tipped the trap over on it’s side, the door sprung open and she made her escape. Well, that didn’t go as planned! Not ten minutes later, Ariel was back, looking at the tasty food in the trap and went for it. This time, she was not able to get out, and was quickly brought into Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

When Arial came into Pet Patrol care she was unsure but happy to be some place climate controlled, and with plenty of food. She was so incredibly hungry. All she wanted was to be pet nicely, talked to gently and in return she purred loudly. Within three days she was stretching out for a full body pet and tummy rub. She gives out a lot of love and attention and is adorable. She’s very good with other cats leading us to believe she lived in a colony before, whether indoors or out. She is taking full of advantage of the toys, looking outside at her new view, and resting comfortably on the soft cat beds. Arial is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Near the city there is a lake, that is surrounded by beautiful homes, nature and farm land. The residents there tend to be well educated, enjoy living in a smaller community and perhaps own a sail boat or canoe. One day a woman called and said that she had noticed a little kitten on her back deck, but it scooted away as soon as it realized someone was watching it. Food and water was put out and on the second day the kitten ended up in the humane trap that was set out for a racoon that was being disruptive. This was Beau’s sisters (Brandi) introduction to the human world, and she was not impressed. Although frightened and unsure, it did not take long for her to settle into her new foster home and accept petting and a nice soft belly rub. The day after her rescue, her brother Beau was brought in, and he too showed concern initially then discovered that petting from people, good food and safety were wonderful parts of their new life.

Personality:

Beau is a handsome grey tabby cat who has come a long way since his rescue. He is great with the other cats at the sanctuary and likes to watch what they are doing, and tries to follow suit. He is learning to be picked up, that will take time because he never had the opportunity before, but he is making progress. He likes to sleep on the bed at night and sit with his people on the couch. He is quite playful and outgoing, chases down toys and other cats tails in games of Tag. He loves the kitty climber and the view from the window sill and has no desire to be outside again. Bright eyed and inquisitive, Beau is ready to be adopted into an adult only home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a call from someone who had two cats in her care and needed to rehome them asap, it was Bella and her daughter Selma. They were brought home by her daughter one day, without asking permission. It was quite a surprise to the mother. The cats initially were started off in the daughters bedroom, but it ended up they had to stay in that room all the time. The family owned two dogs that were very intent on getting at the cats and everyone was on alert to keep the cats safe. Once in Pet Patrol care we found they were microchipped and with further inquiry we found their first home was their rescuer. She had found Bella and Selma under a back porch and provided a foster home for them. The woman also had two dogs that were not compatible with the cats and through advertising she adopted the two cats to a man who lived with a friend. We are not exactly sure how Bella and Selma went from living with this man to being taken into the care with the mother and daughter but through all the changes, Bella and Selma have remained bonded to each other.

Personality:

Bella is a very outgoing and friendly cat who is great with people of all ages, and instantly makes herself at home. Her daughter Selma is a little more reserved, however she too is friendly, affectionate and playful. She does tend to follow the lead of her mother and is very bonded to her. It is Pet Patrol‘s wish to keep the two of them together. Both cats are adorable, gentle natured, calm and playful. They love their people are good company and make themselves at home. Both Bella and Selma are ready to be adopted into their forever home. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors.

Rescue:

One of Pet Patrol`s volunteers was approached by a coworker in regards to her parents cats. It appears that they have experienced a lot of hardships lately with personal illness, reduced ability to work, car broken down and now they will, unfortunately, be evicted within 21 days, because of back rent owed. The daughter tried to bail them out financially but the landlord would have no part of it and was determined it was time for them to move. The couple have a large number of pet cats that are all loved, social and have had a good home. Unfortunately they are not spayed or neutered. This has resulted in the population within the home to explode from just a few pets, to twenty five. Oh my! It is within a short period of time that they need to be re homed, and the word went out through the cat rescue grapevine in hopes that some of them can be placed. Pet Patrol was able to take in six of the cats : Brooklyn, Sasu, Fluffy Butt, Swizzle, Flippy Floppy and Fro in hopes of finding them a forever home.

Personality:

Brooklyn’s real name was Broken. Such a odd name for a cat, But the previous owner named her that because when you pick her up, she `gets all floppy … like she`s broken`. Perhaps a new name should be chosen though. This pretty torti is very affectionate and friendly with everyone. She loves to be pet, brushed and given attention. She is fun loving and playful, is good with other cats, visitors to the home, and family members. Broke is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Here is the story of Callie and her two siblings, Casey and Chloe: A couple who live in town have had a stray mother cat on their property for approximately six years and have done everything in their power to rescue her (befriend her, bribe her, trap her) so she can come inside but she is still very leary of people. She has had many litters which they fed and rescued, but some she moved away from them. This feral cat stayed around and was supplied shelter and food all winter and the couple had made arrangements with their vet several times to have her spayed but she would not be rescued. Then life became too busy, they were not home much and one month went into another. Admittedly their procrastination did not pay off – the mother cat was having babies – again. They had a soft spot for her all along but needed to stop this kitten train. Once the kittens reached 6 weeks of age they brought them indoors for socializing and finally to Pet Patrol for adoption. Their hearts are sad to see them go as they are the last litter for this mother cat. She was finally rescued and spayed, and being completely feral, they released her back onto their property after recuperation. She has the necessities to successfully survive, but the wish is always for them to be indoor.

Personality:

Callie and her siblings are playful, active and fun loving kittens. Any toy is meant to be played with, a cardboard box can become anything that a kitten can imagine, and the kitty climber lets them look out onto the world outside from the window. They are affectionate and gentle natured, and they have come a long way from being timid and unsure of people. They were raised from six weeks to twelve weeks by the woman’s elderly mother, and although she loved them to bits, it was a quiet home. In their Pet Patrol foster home they have a family cuddling them which has really brought them out of their shells. Calley is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

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

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.

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.

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.

Rescue:

Davidson and his brother Harley both have curly short tails, which makes them quite unique. They are really nice boys who love their people, are playful and quite entertaining. Their beginning in life was not so great. They were rescued off the street when they were kittens, and were saved from the harsh realities of becoming pray, starvation and dealing with the ever-changing weather. Being brought indoors was a wonderful thing, but they were brought into a very crowded home. The woman who owns the home loves cats and other pets, however she had too many of them. There came a time when she had to reduce her numbers due to health issues of her own, and the affordability of caring for all these animals. Although she was able to feed them they did not have any veterinarian care.

Personality:

These two boys are very attached to each other and seek each other out for play and cuddling. They are excellent house cats and good company for their people. Both boys quite enjoy watching the neighbourhood and basking in the sun on top of their kitty climber. Toys are to be played with and people are to be snuggled up to, talked to and adored. These are very nice cats and their curly tails make them endearing. Davidson and Harley are ready to be adopted into their forever home. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors

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:

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:

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:

There is a nice tight knit neighbourhood that has had a few stray cats show up in their area. The cats are usually noticed in their back yards, where it is quieter and away from traffic and the general population. They may take refuge in sheds, under decks or even in open garages. They are in desperate need of food and shelter, the basics for survival. One day Floyd showed up. He was peering in the back patio window of one home. The lady inside started feeding him, and really took a shine to him. She asked Pet Patrol to help with getting him neutered and vaccinated, and she would invite him into her home. She knew he was not touchable at this point, but she wasn’t worried. She was sure that under that cautious look, he was a nice cat just begging for love and attention. It is unfortunate for Floyd that before he could be rescued the woman suddenly, and unexpectedly, passed away. He was left on the street. A neighbour understood the passion her friend had for Floyd, and agreed that he needed a change. She rescued him and brought him to Pet Patrol.

Personality:

Although it was a slow start for Floyd to show his affectionate side, it did happen and to our pleasure. He is quite the handsome boy and when he smiles it melts your heart. His life was so sad before, destitute and lonely. He is now happy and carefree. Floyd likes to be up high and watch everything that is going on. He has his perch and can watch out the window and all the activities of the room. He likes to know what is going on. At the sanctuary there are many cats, and he is fine with all of them. Not a mean bone in his body. Such a gentle natured boy. Floyd is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors

Rescue:

One of Pet Patrol`s volunteers was approached by a coworker in regards to her parents cats. It appears that they have experienced a lot of hardships lately with personal illness, reduced ability to work, car broken down and now they will, unfortunately, be evicted within 21 days, because of back rent owed. The daughter tried to bail them out financially but the landlord would have no part of it and was determined it was time for them to move. The couple have a large number of pet cats that are all loved, social and have had a good home. Unfortunately they are not spayed or neutered. This has resulted in the population within the home to explode from just a few pets, to twenty five. Oh my! It is within a short period of time that they need to be re homed, and the word went out through the cat rescue grapevine in hopes that some of them can be placed. Pet Patrol was able to take in six of the cats : Fluffy Butt, Flippy Floppy, Brooklyn, Sasu,  Swizzle and Fro in hopes of finding them a forever home.

Personality:

Fluffy Butt (even the previous owners think it is a bit of a silly, but fun name) is so named because of her long fluffy hair on her hind end resembling pantaloons. She is a beautifully marked torti cat, and quite rare because of her long fur. We do not see very many long haired torti cats in our care. Gorgeous! Fluffy is very friendly and affectionate. She is a quiet cat except when it is food time. Then she gets quite excited and her little paws start dancing. This pretty girl is good with other cats, visitors to the home and family members. She is social and likes to have love and attention. Fluffy is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a 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:

One afternoon Pet Patrol received a message from a woman who works in barns and helps people clear out cluttered areas on their property (sheds, houses and backyards). She told us about a female cat (Harmony) and a male cat (Hunter) and their three tiny kittens. The woman had been feeding Hunter for about three years. He arrived on her rural property as a young but very frightened cat, who did not know who to trust or where security was. She started feeding him daily and saw his health improve, and provided him with a place to stay, out of the weather in her partially used barn. He stuck around and eventually allowed her to pet him, and they became friends. One day a little female cat showed up and was sticking pretty close to Hunter and he, being a kind soul, was taking care of her. It was Harmony, and as nature took its course, there were kittens born not long after the winter weather disappeared. Both cats were finding shelter across the road by how, at a neighbors barn that was in much better shape. Problem was, this little feline family had to cross a very busy road to reach their food source. Wee kittens were struggling to keep up with their parents, but somehow they managed to not be hit on the road. Harmony and Hunter were the first to be rescued and eventually the babies came in too. It was very worrisome to think they were out there without adult cat protection.

Personality:

Harmony is a beautiful spotted brown tabby, which means that she has pretty peach markings through her coat. She is a very nice cat, who is good with people, likes to be pet and is very attentive to her significant other, Hunter. She was quite concerned when she was first brought into our care, her kittens had not been rescued yet, and she was not all that sure about being indoors. But she has since settled in nicely and having Hunter with her really gave her confidence that she was not facing all these changes alone. She is a playful cat and has discovered toys and explored the sanctuary. Harmony is ready to be adopted into her forever home with Hunter. One that will welcome them into the family and keep
them 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:

Hickory’s mom, Hazel was first spotted scurrying across the street of a quiet cul de sac. The woman who spotted her realized that Hazel was frightened, so very thin and in need of help and food. It didn’t take long for this kitty to realize where the feeding station was, and she regularly arrived for her daily meal. But she remained fearful and would not come near the food if any people were in sight. One day it was obvious the she was pregnant and before they could arrange a live trap for her she had given birth to the kittens. By now the woman had her neighbours on board, watching for Hazel and keeping track of her. They noticed her slipping into the wood pile next door, and within a few weeks her little kittens were  peeking their heads out to see the big wide world. A live trap was set up and just before a thunderstorm Hazel was rescued. With the teeming rain, she was brought into safety and that is when we realized that she is indeed a friendly and affectionate cat. The next morning the wood pile was meticulously dismantled until they found the babies. They were almost at the very bottom, in a little cave created by the logs and quickly rescued and reunited with Hazel. Hickory, Heidi, Hilda and Hanson are all safe and sound now, and happy to be living indoors

Personality:

Sweet little Hickory is the only brown tabby in this feline family of grey and white kitties. Now we know what his daddy looked like. His personality has really evolved from being a timid little wood pile kitten to becoming cuddly and affectionate. He is playful and outgoing and likes to be with his brother Hector. They have great games together, and although Hickory is the smallest of the litter, he can keep up to the rest of the kittens just fine. He is by far the fastest and can out run them and is quite agile when catching a runaway toy Hickory is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

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

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 is the only cat from his litter who has not been adopted yet.  We are sure it is due to his shy nature.  He doesn’t quite understand the concept of ‘auditioning for adoption’ yet and retreats under the day beds when company comes.  He is very good with the other cats in the sanctuary, playful and is often found sleeping with a group of them. Often people would like to adopt a third cat in their home, but worry about providing enough time for them. This would be an opportunity for Jamie.  He would be a buddy to the other cats, grateful for a real home and comfortable being indoors, plus you would know that you have helped another kitty find true happiness.  Jamie is ready to be adopted into a forever home.  One that would welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

One of Pet Patrol’s volunteer’s works for a large company, and one of her coworkers owns a farm. She has quite a few cats there, and many years ago she diligently had them all spayed or neutered in order to control the over population Even so, it is not uncommon for a stray to show up here and there; all of a sudden. It is never known where they originally came from, possibly abandoned at the end of the lane or migrated from another farm. One day, out of the blue, this handsome young boy showed up at the patio door of the house. He was friendly and affectionate, would wrap himself around your legs and look up at you with love in his eyes. He was pretty hungry but not in terrible shape, so we don’t think he was out there for very long. Oddly, he would not go into the barn to live, he stayed close to the house and when the woman came out he stuck to her like glue. Although Journey is friendly, he seemed frightened as well, and it all became clear one day when she witnessed a nomad tom cat stalking and attacking Journey. That was enough, she knew he couldn’t stay at the farm and he deserved better. She then called Pet Patrol.

Personality:

Journey is not a big cat but is almost full grown, so he will always be just a little guy. He was not sure what we were up to when he first arrived at the sanctuary but from his integration cage he watched the other cats and volunteers and got used to the routine. Within a few days he was comfortable around everything, which is good, discovered toys and loves to be pet, have a good back massage and ear scratch. He purrs deeply and has a wonderful kitty smile on his face. He is very sweet and well behaved, and certainly deserves a more permanent home that is stable and loving. Journey is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

As told by her rescuer: As a Pet Patrol Volunteer I live in a village surrounded by farms and is close to cottages. Cats are dropped off frequently by people thinking they will find food and shelter on the farms, but the cats end up being picked on because everyone needs the food…no extra for more mouths. I have a feeding station set up and I noticed Lana in early December. She came close but always ran away when I went outside. I hadn’t seen her for a couple months so I thought maybe she moved on or had been hit by a car; coyotes and farm dogs are around also. One day I received a call from my neighbour who had humanely trapped this little calico while trying to get a skunk that lived under his house. Lana was terrified being in the trap but calmed down after being talked to. I brought her to Pet Patrol and once she was in a cage, safe, she let us know how grateful she was that she didn’t have to be constantly alert to trouble. Lana is very friendly and wants a home where she can stay inside and watch out the window…safe!

Personality:

Lana has become a social little cat. Initially quite shy and unsure of living in a house, she has really made herself at home. She loves to play fetch with the kitty springs for hours and hours on end. No matter how many times you throw it, she brings it back and drops it on your feet. If she loses all the springs under the couch she will settle for a toy that squeaks! Lana loves to be petted, and will purr loudly with the attention. She is still startled easily, so consideration and patience is needed with her. A quiet home is preferred. Late at night as things are quieting down, she even gets into having her belly rubbed softly. Lana is food motivated and can hear the auto feeder from anywhere in the house…launching from a deep sleep for that first bite of kibble. She is a dear little cat who has adjusted to the dramatic change in her lifestyle, all for the better. She is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her 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:

A tearful phone message was left on the Pet Patrol line from a woman whose brother had just died. He had a very difficult time fighting cancer and she was his main caregiver for the last year and a half. The woman is a cat lover and had noticed there were three stray cats outside his house, Maurice being one of them. He turned out to be a very nice, friendly cat and soon after starting to feed him two little Torti females showed up with him. Again they were very nice gentle and friendly cats. By now the man had lost his driver’s license and was very out of sorts, didn’t know what to do with himself, and felt very lost. With the encouragement of his sister he learned more about the cats, respected their poor situation and eventually invited them into the house. She made sure that they were spayed or neutered and had their vaccinations. They definitely made a difference in his life as he became happier and had something to look forward to every day. But now she didn’t know what to do with the cats. Eventually Maurice and another little kitten, Shelly, were brought into Pet Patrol care and the two Torti’s went to another rescue group and are doing well.

Personality:

Maurice is such a good cat. He is kind and unassuming, good with the other cats in the sanctuary and likes his people too. He is always ready for a pet and cuddle, will rub up against your legs for attention and hop up onto the couch beside you. He is gentle, intelligent and fun loving. He will join in on games to catch that illusive red dot, bat around a crinkle ball or just watch the younger kittens play. He likes his cat climber and will perch on the very top to look out the window. All in all a great kitty and good company. Maurice is ready to be adopted into his forever home . One that will welcome him into the family and keep him 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:

Merlot was abandoned we assume. He was found out on a country property, in the middle of nowhere it seems, as there are few homes or businesses around. A woman who helps her friend, who owns the house, with his summer gardening noticed Merlot scooting around the side of the tool shed. She is a cat lover and always has a place in her heart for cats who are lost and have nothing to depend on. When she called to him, he looked back and stared for a bit, then carried on. Just in case, she drove into town and picked up a bag of cat food, it took her almost an hour for the round trip, and when she returned so had Merlot. This time he meowed at her. Then she knew that he was friendly, not feral and asking her
for help. He gobbled down the food, obviously he had not eaten for a long time, then trotted off. Her friend offered to continue feeding this handsome, but very thin, cat until she returned the next weekend with a cat carrier. True to her word she rescued him and brought him into Pet Patrol care where he demonstrated his appreciation for being rescued, for having people care for him and for a chance for a home for the rest of his life.

Personality:

Merlot gives very powerful headbutts when he is happy. It makes you smile at how happy he is, and how much he loves all the attention. He is so affectionate and all about love. Merlot is a majestic tall and long cat, with a glossy black coat and a wonderful personality. He is good company, likes all the visitors to the sanctuary and greets them purring and rubbing up against their legs. He quite happy to be indoors. He has discovered the fun of catnip toys, crinkle balls and anything that dangles. Definitely was a house cat in his earlier life, but how he ended up lost or abandoned we will never know. Merlot is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One 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.

Rescue:

When you live way out in the country, where the neighbours have to be driven to because they are so far away, and your road is made of gravel, you get to know your property. Although vast, there is a rhythm to it, and you get to know the routines of the wildlife and the lay of the land. When a new little critter arrives you take note. It could be raccoons in the barn, a new gopher hole or in this case it was Monty. One day, out of the corner of her eye, the owner of the property saw this white image scoot across the back of the barn. She wasn’t sure what it was at first, but figured it was a cat since not many animals are white with tabby spots. Over the next few weeks he found the feeding station that she puts out for any stray that might show up and need food and shelter. More and more he started to feel more comfortable and showing himself as well, but she saw that he was limping and set up a humane trap to bring him into care. It didn’t take long to entice Monty into it, as the aroma of sardines was too much to refuse. Soon he was off to Pet Patrol and upon arrival he was unsure of what our intentions were, but he is now a very nice friendly boy.

Personality:

Monty is a gem. Once comfortable in the sanctuary Monty began purring loudly when pet. He loves to be brushed and have the attention of people, and he has learned more about toys, how they work and how much fun they are. Of course, catnip is a favorite. He uses the scratching posts and enjoys laying on the soft beds now; foreign to him in his before life. Monty overall is a gentle and loving cat who enjoys the company of other cats and the indoor life style seems to suit him. He has found a friend in Tigga, and the two of them can be found cuddled up together at any point of the day. Monty is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

His rescue story told by his rescuer: “The woman I clean for has had a mother cat hanging around with her kittens (two). She lives on a busy road and recently found the mother cat was hit by a car and died. One of the babies is missing now for two days. The other is in her yard crying. She’s asked if I’d take it to the rescue. I’ll go pick it up this afternoon. This is the first I’ve heard of these cats, I didn’t know they were there last week. Anyway, can I bring it in with me in the morning. She figures they were just about weaned age. He cries a lot. Probably misses his mom. I can’t help but wonder if he was with her when she got hit … how sad”. The next morning Orion was brought into Pet Patrol care where he purred happily when pet and cuddled.

Personality:

Orion was a little shell shocked when he came into the sanctuary, but with lots of cuddles and petting he soon felt very comfortable. He purrs readily and is happy to be with people and will come to you for affection. He is very playful and likes to chase anything that rolls, bounces or makes a noise. He runs around with the other kittens in the sanctuary in a haphazard game of Tag/Hide & Seek. Quite entertaining! Orion doesn’t mind being picked up and carried. He is gentle, fun loving and very sweet. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

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 her 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.

Rescue:

One year a woman approached Pet Patrol about taking in her three lovely, well socialized kittens who all came from her country property.  Their mother cat had disappeared and the people who owned the small farm had hand raised them, making them very people oriented babies. The husband and wife, and their children, enjoyed having the kittens but knew they needed to control the over population of cats and not let things get out of hand.  Fast forward to the next spring and another stray showed up in the shop and had a litter of four kittens, Poppy being one of them. The mother was quite friendly, but when the kittens came into our care they were more frightened. Strange. It seems that although the mother cat liked people, when it came to touching her kittens she was wary and would growl. This told the kittens to beware of the humans, and the people weren’t sure what to do so they avoided touching the babies. This delayed their socializing, but soon all caught up and became friendly and affectionate little cats with time and patience.  Poppy and her three other siblings came around quite nicely and are now ready to be adopted.

Personality:

Poppy is a beautifully marked spotted grey tabby which means she has pretty peach spots throughout her coat.  She is very sweet and gentle, and doesn’t mind being pet or receiving a good scratch behind her ears.  She is easy to entertain with toys like the plastic springs or a cat nip mouse, but also enjoys the company of her people.  Poppy would do well as an only cat, having her person all to herself or perhaps with a gentle dog.  This nice little cat is easy to love and ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her 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.

Rescue:

A text message came through from one of Pet Patrol’s long time volunteers. She said a friend of hers was wondering if we would have space for a little kitten. It’s living outside someone’s house, but they have no intention of letting it inside. It’s very socialized. The location is out of town and she would be going there in five or six days. She would bring it back with her then if we have the space for it. (The thought of a little kitten like that outside for even another hour is frightening, as they can become prey to wild life among other threatening situations.) They figure it came from the nearby farm, but it’s been hanging out at the house for a while. They are feeding it, but not letting it inside. That same evening our volunteer drove to the location and brought little Sable into our care.

Personality:

Sable has tinges of deep chocolate brown in her fur and is also described as a Smoke tabby. When you part her fur it is white. Very pretty and not common at all. She is such a happy go lucky cat and loves everyone. She is easy to pick up and carry around, she wants nothing more than be to pet, held, cuddled, snuggled and played with. She loves her toys and is quite active and excited about them. Anything that bounces, like a ping pong ball is fair game, and of course, crinkly toys and things that wiggle. Sable is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a call from someone who had two cats in her care and needed to rehome them asap, it was Selma and her momma Bella. They were brought home by her daughter one day, without asking permission. It was quite a surprise to the mother. The cats initially were started off in the daughters bedroom, but it ended up they had to stay in that room all the time. The family owned two dogs that were very intent on getting at the cats and everyone was on alert to keep the cats safe. Once in Pet Patrol care we found they were microchipped and with further inquiry we found their first home was their rescuer. She had found Selma and Bella under a back porch and provided a foster home for them. The woman also had two dogs that were not compatible with the cats and through advertising she adopted the two cats to a man who lived with a friend. We are not exactly sure how they went from living with this man to being taken into the care with the mother and daughter but through all the changes, Selma and Bella have remained bonded to each other.

Personality:

Selma is a little bit reserved but she is very friendly, affectionate and playful. She does tend to follow the lead of her mother and is very bonded to her. Bella is a very outgoing and friendly cat who is great with people of all ages, and instantly makes herself at home. It is Pet Patrol‘s wish to keep the two of them together. Both cats are adorable, gentle natured, calm and playful. They love their people are good company and make themselves at home. Both Selma and Bella are ready to be adopted into their forever home. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors.

Rescue:

Spence was not noticed at first, but his footprints in the snow were.This happened on a country property, off the beaten path, and far from any other barn. The only cats on the property were in the house, safe and sound and not ones to roam freely outdoors. So when the little paw prints were noticed, it was concerning because the weather was frightfully cold and snowy. What little cat could be out here alone, in our barn, and where did it come from. The latter will never be answered; but we can tell you about his rescue. The family that lived on the property were going through some heart wrenching health concerns and the last thing they expected was to be rescuing a cat. But the Dad immediately put food out and finally one day Spence appeared. He was thin and pretty rough looking, and he didn’t trust anyone. With a little bit of time, rest and a belly full of food he soon showed his friendly side. The daughter went right up to him one day, picked him up and brought him safely into the house without issue. Spence certainly was not opposed to being inside a warm home.

Personality:

He is such a handsome cat, who did not take long to feel comfortable in his temporary rescue house. He is quite a nice boy, cuddly and appreciates a nice lap to curl up on. He is a people cat, and wants to be with you and keep you company. He was housed in a nice bedroom as they had a huge family dog and were unsure how they would get along, and he had the daughter to snuggle up to at night. Spence showed us that he is a playful cat, will chase after toys, bat around a catnip mouse and also likes his perch by the window. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors

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

Rescue:

One of Pet Patrol`s volunteers was approached by a coworker in regards to her parents cats. It appears that they have experienced a lot of hardships lately with personal illness, reduced ability to work, car broken down and now they will, unfortunately, be evicted within 21 days, because of back rent owed. The daughter tried to bail them out financially but the landlord would have no part of it and was determined it was time for them to move. The couple have a large number of pet cats that are all loved, social and have had a good home. Unfortunately they are not spayed or neutered. This has resulted in the population within the home to explode from just a few pets, to twenty five. Oh my! It is within a short period of time that they need to be re homed, and the word went out through the cat rescue grapevine in hopes that some of them can be placed. Pet Patrol was able to take in six of the cats : Swizzle, Sasu,  Fro, Fluffy Butt, Flippy Floppy, and Brookly  in hopes of finding them a forever home.

Personality:

We are not sure how Swizzel got her name, but it is interesting and fun. She is a very friendly and chatty kind of kitty who loves cuddling with her people and knows what she likes. She is good with the other cats, visitors to the home and family members, is social and likes to have the attention. In return she will purr deeply as you pet her and give her devotion. Swizzel is a beautiful medium haired black and white kitty. 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 received a call about a blind kitten from an out of town cat rescue organization. Her eyes were frosted over and she could not see anything other than light, dark and some movements. It was pretty hard to watch her stumbling around and being frightened of most movement around her. She was found in a barn, not a particularly nice one, and she was hiding in the hay loft in a bucket, all alone. The owner of the properly wasn’t happy with the number of cats that were there, as they wanted to sell the farm. Shortly after we received this message, Talia came into Pet Patrol care and straight to the vet clinic. The frostiness in her eyes was caused from an eye infection and after trying three different medications we finally found one that started clearing up the scarring on her corneas. Talia has done extremely well in foster care And has gained 60% of her vision back. She is a very happy cat.

Personality:

Talia is the cuddliest cat her foster family has ever seen. Talia adores laying on her human’s belly and will do anything for a gentle pet on the head. She is closely bonded to her sister, Tiny, and looks to her for support whenever she is unsure. Talia loves to play with wand toys, and chase around toy mice. She has some vision impairment but it never stops her from playing just as actively as any other cat. Talia takes great pride in grooming her human family. She loves to lay with you at the end of a long day and gently cleans your hand while you watch TV. Talia is ready to be adopted into her forever home with her BFF Tiny. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors.

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a call from a woman who works in barns, does dog walking and takes in many stray and abandoned animals.  In one of the farms there are six cats that are considered to be pets, and are watched over, fed and watered and proper housing is available for them as well. One day a nice looking long haired orange and white cat showed up. He had not been noticed before and they were not sure if he had migrated from another farm property or he was dumped off in the middle of the night.  We will never know.  They called him Tigga and thought that they might keep him as part of their colony.  But over time it appeared that the cats were not getting along and it was decided that Tigga must be the problem.  A home needed to be found.  He was taken to the woman’s home, which was over crowded and he was destined to live his life in a cage in her garage if another place was not found for him. Pet Patrol gladly took him in. Once in our care we found him to be loving and affectionate, interested in people and good with the other cats.  It’s hard to say what actually transpired in the barn, but everyone is much happier now.

Personality:

Tigga is adorable and has the sweetest face.  He is so grateful to be rescued and in a place where he is safe, has people petting him and giving him love and attention.  He is learning about toys and it took him about a week before he was batting at crinkle balls and using the scratching post.  His integration has gone well and he is now in with the general population of cats at the sanctuary.  He is regaining his confidence and is becoming a relaxed and happy cat.  So good to see. Tigga is ready to be adopted into his forever home.  One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Pet Patrol has volunteers that help out in all different ways, and work in all different types of employment We received a call from one of our long time volunteers who works in a pet food store and she said that a man had just come in with a little six week old kitten. they were on their way to a camp ground for a few days and noticed her on the side of the road. Their children insisted they turn around and rescue her. The man wondered if the store would keep her for them until they returned, since it was a ‘No Pet’ park. Not being in a position to do that, and noticing that the kitten was very underweight, and had a cold and eye infections, our volunteer suggested that he take her to a local vet and have them care for her, and board her until they return. The man thought that would be too expensive. The volunteer then suggested that they relinquish custody to Pet Patrol where proper care would be given and a new home would be found, the man agreed. Our volunteer raced Tiny to the sanctuary on her break from work, where she received medical attention and nutrition.

Personality:

We named her Tiny because she was so very small and light weight when rescued. She is the sweetest little girl. She is fiercely loyal to her loved ones, including her human family and feline sister, Talia. She is always thrilled to see her people come back at the end of a work day, and greets her people at the door with her tail held high and with lots of bird calls and crooning. She adores belly rubs and will follow her people around the house to get some extra attention. Tiny has come a long way in the last few months in foster care and is ready to be adopted into her forever home with her BFF Talia. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoor,
