Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a call about a very sad situation where house cats were living in deplorable conditions, and needed to be rescued. We contacted the owner of the cats, a man who’s wife had died of cancer a few months back, to see if he needed help. He told us that his wife loved the cats, they were all from one litter, friendly and sat on her lap all the time. He just wanted them out, and really had nothing to do with them on a daily basis. No play time, no toys, no interaction. The six cats were born to their elderly female cat who had died at Christmas time. They spent most of their time cuddled up on the couch and keeping each other company. Upon entry of the house the rescuer was hit with the intense smell of cigarette smoke, stale urine and a house that had not been cleaned for a very long time. The place was cluttered and dirty, and the cats were upset and frightened. There were six in total, Amaya, Apala, Aya and Abram were the first to come into our care, the other two, Arric and Augustin, came a week later.

Personality:

Abram would do best if adopted with a sibling. They are all quite attached to each other and get along extremely well. While in the home they shared, they were each others best friend and basically that is all they had. Since coming into our care they have received much more interaction from volunteers and visitors, and are showing us their loving and affectionate side. Toys were quite a mystery for them, and it was interesting to watch them explore and start to play. It was a thrill to see them gain weight and finally smile, and become healthy and happy too. Abram is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors

Rescue:

Ace and his sister Ava, were living in the middle of downtown and their mother, Raven, was completely feral. She was a protective mother though and incredibly smart. Most cats will have their kittens under decks or sheds, in outbuildings or even gopher holes. But Raven had her kittens up in the attic of an abandoned house. The property had not been cared for and the windows and doors were boarded up. The eaves troughs were falling down and the bricks were crumbling in places. But there was a tall tree situated right beside the house and the branches were growing over part of the roof. The one neighbour saw Raven scampering up the tree and disappearing into the roof of the house, but shortly after saw little kittens peeking out. Raven picked up a kitten in her mouth and carried it down the tree, one after another, until finally all three kittens were safely on the ground. Knowing that this was a precarious nursery for the babies, the neighbour rescued the one kitten as it was trying to climb the tree, and the other two ( Ace & Ava ) came in shortly after that. Raven was rescued the next day and reunited with her kittens. All have been spayed or neutered and Raven is happily living on a country property.

Personality:

This fun loving little kitten is quite fond of his sister and the two of them play and cuddle together a lot. There are other kittens in the house for them to interact with, and they do, but it is noticeable that they migrate to each other. Ace is outgoing and a bit of an adventurer. He loves his toys and chases things that roll and bounce. He is crazy for the feather wand toy, and loves the kitty climber. He is the King of his castle up there. Ace is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and include his sister Ava, and keep them safely indoors

Rescue:

This good looking boy’s story starts with his mother Frost. She is a sweet girl who her rescuers have been taking care of since she first showed up at their door, in November 2014. She was about three months old at the time and she was with another older cat who they think may have been her mom. We rescued the older cat but were never able to catch Frost since she had never been touched by people and was very unsure of us. Since then she has been living, until this year, in an outdoor insulated, weather proof cat house, that they built her. She was provided with plenty of food and a heated water bowl so it doesn’t freeze during the winter. Being unspayed Frost had her first litter about a year later, she had two kittens. and then her second litter was born in March 2017. She had four beautiful babies. Once in touch with Pet Patrol Frost was rescued and spayed, and so were all her kittens, including Aerowyn.

Personality:

Aerowyn is an handsome, stocky boy who loves his treats and wet food. He likes being pet and doesn’t mind being picked up, and a nice chin scratch and ear rub starts his purr motor going. He doesn’t mind his feet being touched either. He’s a great little climber, and really likes looking out the window from the top of his cat tree. He doesn’t miss the outdoors at all. Aerowyn was slightly cross eyed when he was younger and sometimes still is when he’s not focusing on anything. He has the most adorable head tilt when you talk to him and is a real sweetheart. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep his safely indoors.

Personality:

Ava is quite the little girly girl, and very fun loving like her brother Ace. The two of them play and cuddle together a lot. There are other kittens in the house for them to interact with as well, and they do, but it is noticeable that they migrate to each other. Ava is interested
in all that you do, and will watch her brothers antics and then follow his lead. She loves her toys and chases things that roll and bounce. She thinks the feather wand toy is great, and loves the kitty climber. Her brother might be the King of his castle up there, but she is definitely the Princess. Ava is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and include her brother Ace, and keep them 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:

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

Personality:

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

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 a call from a woman who had rescued cats in the past, raised the kittens in her home and brought them to Pet Patrol. They were all friendly and affectionate and easy to find homes for. When she called again, we were pleased to hear from her because we knew the kittens would be friendly, but also concerned because this was yet another litter by the same mother cat. She has since been rescued and spayed. This litter of five kittens are sweet and friendly as well, but were not brought into the house quite as early as the others. Possibly because they were born in the summer, and they felt they would be fine outside with the weather, or didn’t want that many little ones running around indoors. Regardless, they have all developed into nice kittens. They were cuddled and pet, carried and cooed to. Now in Pet Patrol care Danae and her siblings are ready to find their forever homes.

Personality:

Danae, Dove, Destiny and brothers Desmond and Deacon are healthy and bright. They love to play and run around, happily chasing each other, toys that roll or bounce or the light from the laser pen is awesome. They like to climb the kitty climber, scoot through the tunnel and bop other cats feet and tails as they stroll pass. Very entertaining. With people, Danae was a little timid but with time and patience she has come around nicely. She is ready to be adopted into her forever home. Preferably one that has a sibling or other playmate for her. A home 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 males and is gentle and sweet in nature. Darius is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Daryl lived in a home with many other cats . His owners were disabled and because they loved kitties, people would often take advantage of them. If neighbours or even family members, needed to find a new home for their cat, received a kitten as a gift, or their cat had kittens, they knew they could easily talk this couple into taking the unwanted feline. Their income was incredibly restricted, and they could barely make their rent payments, so feeding their increasing colony in the house was difficult. At risk of being evicted after the landlord found out how many cat there were, and the crowded living conditions, they reached out to a rescue organization, who in turn contacted Pet Patrol. Lil Wayne came into Pet Patrol care with Sacha, Daryl and his buddy Kurtis the orange cat. He is a much happier boy now.

Personality:

Daryl is nice boy who is gentle and sweet. He was a little shell shocked when he first arrived at the sanctuary because everything was so strange to him. But he accepted petting from day one and soon adjusted very well to his new surroundings. Daryl can be found snuggled up to the other cats a lot of the time and seeks them out for playtime. He likes games of Tag, wrestling or chasing after the laser pen light. Anything that dangles is a treat. Daryl is ready to be adopted  into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep them safely indoors.

Rescue:

Here is Diesel’s story: A man had walked into the store at a gas station and told the staff that he had found a kitten outside and then promptly held up baby Diesel in one hand. He asked if anyone was missing this little guy from their car and the staff said there were no
reports. He sat Diesel down on the counter and as the woman admired him the man said “so you’re looking after him now right?” and then left the store. She was stunned. She called the local shelters but it was after hours and then contacted a Pet Patrol volunteer that
she knew through social media. Diesel arrived in our care thin, smelling of oil and was limping, but after a nice bath and vet attention he thrived. It wasn’t long after he regained his health that Diesel was adopted by a young couple. Fast forward six years and once again Diesel is in Pet Patrol care. During his life in this home, the couple had children and Diesel was not coping well. They tried to make things easier for him and provide him with extra attention and space away from the children but he was not happy. They really took their time and did their best, but ultimately it became clear that he needed a new home.

Personality:

Diesel is a very nice, calm and easy going cat, who loves his people and likes to be around them. He was raised as an only cat, so a home that is more serene and perhaps one other easy going cat would be best for him. He is playful and fun loving, likes the crinkle tunnel,
toys that bounce and the kitty climber provides the best view of the neighbourhood. Diesel makes himself at home and will cuddle with you for a movie and at bedtime. He is just a really nice boy. He 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 recently visited a family who had asked for some help finding homes for their cats and kittens. They had a few beloved cats of their own, and had taken in two more when a close relative sadly passed away. The only cats spayed or neutered were the ones that were inherited. Three females and two males, all adults, are not altered and the resulting of a mature Donovan and his Dad Davey, plus twelve kittens are now a strain on their ability to give everybody the love and attention they need, and Vet care is not even in the budget. Our volunteer mentioned that the family lives in an apartment in a beautiful old building, but they now have ten cats in total (they would not relinquish three of the kittens to us). We are still in negotiations to help the family have their cats spayed or neutered so that the over population in their home will not continue.

Personality:

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

Eliza’s grandma, Ezra, came to Pet Patrol with a lot of offspring. Her sons Elam, Elijah, Edison, daughters Ella and Eva, and four little grand babies. Wow! That is a lot of kitties to take into our care all at once. But they are all friendly, affectionate, and sweet natured. Ezra and her crew came from a farm property that is way off the road. A young family was renting the house and the children had discovered her in the hayloft with her litter of kittens. They socialized them and as the kittens grew bigger they started following the children into the house. Now they were indoor / outdoor cats. In one way that was nice for them because they didn’t have to worry about cold nights, rainy days or the hot sun. But being allowed outside created other problems, like becoming prey to coyote and fox. There were a few harrowing experiences for them. Having a lot of pets of their own, and now another litter of kittens born to the now grown daughters was becoming unmanageable for a family with little money. They eventually found Pet Patrol and knowing of the situation they were all brought into our care. They have proven to be very nice kitties that deserve to have a forever home.

Personality:

Eliza is gentle, loving and fun. She is like her sister, carefree and takes in the love and attention of the people around them. She is used to children and other cats, and even the family dog was a friend. She has shown us her expertise at chasing down and catching a fly that got into the building. She has a lovable sweet face, a deep appreciative purr and the ability to steal hearts. What a gem! Eliza is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a call from one of our former foster homes, situated in a small tourist village. She had taken care of many cats for us in the past and had done a great job. She called to say there was a pretty orange mother cat, with her four little kittens (Emilia, Emmie, Emmette and Everette), running around her street. She was concerned for them, and since the village had a number of strays, breeding freely, she didn’t want to add to the problem. She was going to ask around to see who is feeding them and then coordinate their rescue from there. The woman discovered that a gentleman on the street was finding homes for them, but in the meantime they were not brought inside for safety and that set off alarm bells. We were still open to bringing in the kittens and mom as well, but the man was convincing in his determination to look after the cats. Fast forward, from summer to fall, and a neighbour from the same street brought in Emilia and her three siblings. You are correct in your thoughts, it was the same feline family! The mother cat has been rescued and a home found for her, and her kittens have thrived.

Personality:

Emilia and Emmie needed a little more time to convince them that people were trustworthy but now they are easy to pet and cuddly. Picking up was something that had to be learned. They developed quickly into nice gentle and loving kittens, are playful and run around after toys and tails. Scampering up the kitty climber to the highest perch to look out over the kitty playroom, and outside as well. They have no desire to go outside any more and are quite content in their new environment at the Pet Patrol sanctuary. Emilia is ready to be adopted into her forever home, hopefully with her sister Emmie.. One that will welcome her into the family and will keep her safely indoors.

She called to say there was a pretty orange mother cat, with her four little kittens (Emilia, Emmie, Emmette and Everette), running around her street. She was concerned for them, and since the village had a number of strays, breeding freely, she didn’t want to add to the problem. She was going to ask around to see who is feeding them and then coordinate their rescue from there. The woman discovered that a gentleman on the street was finding homes for them, but in the meantime they were not brought inside for safety and that set off alarm bells. We were still open to bringing in the kittens and mom as well, but the man was convincing in his determination to look after the cats. Fast forward, from summer to fall, and a neighbour from the same street brought in Emmie and her three siblings. You are correct in your thoughts, it was the same feline family! The mother cat has been rescued and a home found for her, and her kittens have thrived.

Personality:

Emmie and Emilia needed a little more time to convince them that people were trustworthy but now they are easy to pet and cuddly. Picking up was something that had to be learned. They developed quickly into nice gentle and loving kittens, are playful and run around after toys and tails. Scampering up the kitty climber to the highest perch to look out over the kitty playroom, and outside as well. They have no desire to go outside any more and are quite content in their new environment at the Pet Patrol sanctuary. Emmie is ready to be adopted into her forever home, hopefully with her sister Emilia. One that will welcome her into the family and will keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a call from one of our former foster homes, who lives in a small tourist village. She had taken care of many cats for us in the past and had done a great job. She called me to say there was a pretty orange mother cat, with her four little kittens, running around her street. She was concerned for them, and since the village had a number of strays, breeding freely, she didn’t want to add to the problem. I asked her to ask around to see who is feeding them and then ask their cooperation in rescuing this little feline family. The woman discovered that a gentleman on the street was finding homes for them, but in the meantime they were not brought inside for safety and that set off alarm bells. We were still open to bringing in the kittens and mom as well, but the man was convincing in his determination to look after the cats. Fast forward, from summer to fall, and a neighbour from the same street brought in Everett and his three siblings. You are correct in your thoughts, it was the same feline family! The mother cat has been rescued and a home found for her, but by now the kittens were either friendly or frightened. We had our work cut out for us.

Personality:

Everett and his sister Etta were the friendliest of the crew (Emilia and Emmett needed more time). They were easy to pet and cuddly. Picking up was something that had to be learned. They developed quickly into nice gentle and loving kittens. They love to play and run around after toys and tails. Scampering up the kitty climber to the highest perch to look out over the kitty playroom, and outside as well. They have no desire to go outside any more and are quite content in their new environment at the Pet Patrol sanctuary. Everett is ready to be adopted into her forever home, hopefully with a sibling or playmate. One that will welcome him into the family and will keep her safely indoors.

Farrah

Born: 2004
Colour: Pewter Grey
Eyes: Gold
Spayed & Vaccinated

✔ Indoors only

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. 🙂

Gabrielle

Born: 2014
Colour: Torti
Eyes: Gold
Spayed & Vaccinated

Microchipped

✔ Quiet home

✔ Dogs (passive)
✔ Indoors only

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.
