Rescue:

Cheddar had shown up in the back yard of a woman who regularly feeds the stray cats and provides winter and summer shelter for them. About a year ago when this long and lean looking orange tabby cat first showed up, he was half starved and very weary looking. He immediately went to the food station, but only after she retreated into the house, and it took quite a few weeks before he would come to the food while she was in sight. By mid winter though, she could put her hand on him and by spring she could pet him, scratch his ears and neck, and he was definitely enjoying the attention. But he was still living outside. The winter housing was heated and insulated, so he was able to get out of the wind and cold. By summer Cheddar would seek out her attention and he loved to lay on her feet when she sat outside. He was wary of other people but it was good to see he was friendly and could connect with someone. Her plan was to have him neutered with his brother Cheetoh, who had shown up shortly after Cheddar initially arrived, and provide an opportunity for both to become house cats. Both boys are now indoors and doing well.

Personality:

Cheddar is such a handsome and wise looking cat. He is gentle and kind, good with other cats and likes his people too. Such a rough start to his life, but he was lucky that he found the right house, the right lady to care for him, and she did the right thing when he was injured. He has shown us his playful side, and will chase after the laser pen light, a dangling shoe lace and   he likes his cat scratcher as well. Cheddar has fit right into living at the sanctuary, and is looking forward to having people of his own. 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 received an email from their accountant. Expecting a year end financial question we were surprised to hear that she was involved in the rescue of six cats that were free roaming in a neighbourhood. Apparently it is one of her coworkers who has been feeding the cats and since none of them were spayed or neutered, and spring was only a few months away, she wanted to get them fixed as soon as possible. Some were social and others had the potential. She had arranged some foster homes and that helped make it doable. When Daphne came into our care, she was concerned and unsure but friendly and affectionate when she became comfortable. Soon after her brother Donavan was rescued and that completed the family rescue. All had been living freely on the streets, but came into an open garage for shelter and feeding nightly. The garage door was not closed though, so other critters would come in, and sometimes the cats had to defend themselves. A fight had happened on the driveway one night, but all the cats were fine. Enough was enough, they all came into our care soon after.

Personality:

Daphnie is quite a character. She loves rocking chairs and will shift her weight to make it rock back and forth. She loves other cats and can be found in a giant pile of fur and purr with the three other kitties in her foster home. Anything that flutters or jingles is a big hit with her and she adores paper gift bags. You will have a life long friend if you offer her a frozen shrimp on a hot summers day. and she is in awe at the sound of mooing cows in TV. Daphnie has come a long way from the timid kitty we first brought in and is ready for her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her 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 day Pet Patrol received a call from our Trap-Neuter-Release volunteers, about a mother cat, nicknamed Marianne Faithful, and her four tiny kittens. They were on a country property where it is believed that the mother cat was abandoned and made her way to the barn. She was noticed by the property owner because she was so potty looking in the belly. A few days later she was thin and so the search was on for her new born kittens. For a little while they were fed in the barn, then as Faithful became friendly they were brought into the house. Since the mother cat did not have enough milk to nurse them with, the owner gave the kittens cows milk, which almost cost them their lives. Cats are lactose intolerant and they had massive diarrhea and dehydration. They were all in very poor shape and in need of care immediately. They were brought to the sanctuary where they received some life saving treatment, enough to help them make it to the vet the next day. From there they went to a foster home.

Personality:

Faithful is a very sweet cat who likes to be up high and survey the room and see who is coming and going. She is like the neighbourhood watch cat, keeping an eye on the squirrels and birds, traffic outside and people walking their dogs. She jumps down to be with her people, purrs loudly and loves to be cuddled and pet. She is a playful cat, now that her kittens are getting bigger, and likes to chase balls and plastic springs, but the catnip toys are a favorite for sure. Faithful is lovely and super affectionate girl looking for a quiet home, a forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Farrah

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:

A young man who used to volunteer at the sanctuary dropped by one day to ask for help. One member of his family had acquired a lot of cats over the years, mostly unintentional, and three kittens needed to be rehomed. Being a kind hearted person who loved her cats, people sometimes took advantage of her good nature and gave her their unwanted pets. She couldn’t say no, even though she knew it wasn’t a good idea. The family, collectively, had found homes for eight of the cats, and there were still some females and their babies to place, and the Daddy cat of them all. Genavii and her siblings, Greggie and Grayson, were brought to their foster home as frightened little kittens, wondering why their world had been turned upside down. But they were healthy and bright, and excited about toys and the kitty climber. Within a day or so they were romping around and enjoying cuddles with their foster mom.

Personality:

Like all kittens Genavii likes toys like balls that bounce, crinkly things and a cardboard box goes a long way. Although initially shy, it didn’t last long and she will happily sit on your lap and snuggle in. She doesn’t mind being picked up and carried around either. She has only known living with other cats, so it would be preferable that she have a buddy or sibling to be adopted with for companionship and sociability. Genavii is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the home and keep her safely indoors.
