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.

Bambi (Kitten)

Microchipped

✔ Quiet home

✔ Dogs (passive)
✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

A lady who has a small cat rescue, out of town, received a call from a girl who was about 18 years old. She lived at home with her family and they already had three dogs and three cats (mother cat, father cat and kitten from a previous litter) and now three new kittens. The house was becoming over crowded with pets, and they knew they could not keep Bambi and her two sisters (Bindi and Blossom) nor afford to have them spayed. Initially they had tried to sell the kittens online and when that didn’t work they tried to give them away for free, but there were no takers. The young woman was looking for a cat rescue who could help and reached out to family and friends on Face Book, who led her to the small rescue. Soon the kittens were on their way to Pet Patrol and the family was referred to the low cost spay/neuter clinic closest to them so that there would not be any more unwanted kittens born.

Personality:

Bambi and her sisters are all very cute and cuddly. They have been handled by children and cradled, which they all love, carried around and are quite relaxed in your arms. Like all kittens they are very playful and energetic, love their toys and investigating everything around them. A cardboard box can go a long way in entertaining them, and they are very excited when their person brings the wand toy out. They are not shy but rather quite confident and outgoing. Completely adorable. Bambi is ready to be adopted into her forever home, hopefully with a sibling or playmate. 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 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.

Cheeto

MALE

Microchipped

✔ Quiet home

✔ Other cats
?  Dogs (passive)
✔ Indoors only

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.

Chloe (Kitten)

✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

Here is the story of Chloe and her two siblings, Casey and Callie: 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 indoors.

Personality:

Chloe 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. Chloe is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Starting in early summer, a young male cat (eventually named Darcy), who was very skittish,started passing through a woman’s yard. At first she thought he was an owned cat but he seemed to be getting thinner, like he wasn’t getting fed daily. She put food out for him and he would creep up to the kibble and inhale it, but as soon as he saw her he would be off the porch like a shot. It took several weeks for him to feel comfortable enough to eat while she was watching. He was not a regular visitor and would miss days or meal times. By early fall Darcy would come when she called him and she could pet him while he ate. Eventually, this petting and ear rubs became a routine. As the nights were getting rather cold he started to spend his days and nights in the insulated kitty house on a bench, sheltered in a corner of the porch. From there he was coaxed into the house and was an indoor/outdoor cat for a while, until he adjusted to being inside. By now the temperature was below zero outside and Darcy decided he was not going out any more and has been a happy indoor cat since. Within a few days be came into Pet Patrol care after an extensive search for his original home to no avail.

Personality:

Once he was comfortable in the house, Darcy’s personality blossomed and he has never looked back. He will race around playfully, give you head bunts, and chat up a storm, all the while his tail would be tilted over his back like a teapot handle. He was one happy fella and gobbled up all the attention and affection we shower on him. His rescuer was so happy that he would have a chance at finding a forever home, yet sad that she would lose such a charming, playful, chatty, affectionate kitty. He will make someone a wonderful companion. Darcy is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors

Farrah

Picture of our cat Farrah

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

✔ Quiet home

✔ Adult home
✘ Children under 12
✘ Children over 12
✔ Other cats
?  Dogs (passive)

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. 🙂

Gabrielle

Microchipped

✔ Quiet home

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.

✔ Hobby Farm

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.

✔ Quiet home

✔ Dogs (passive)
✔ Indoors only

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:

One of Pet Patrol’s volunteers lives in a small, close community, near a busy road. She has a dog, a cat and a number of birds in her home, and takes note of any stray cats and local wildlife that she sees roaming freely. Little Kandy showed up near the end of November looking all nice and clean and she thought maybe someone in the area had a new cat. It is never a good idea to let your cat roam freely as there are fox, coyote and hawks just waiting for that next meal. After three weeks of feeding her, this mostly white little cat was getting very dirty. Seeing this the woman knew she was a lost or abandoned cat, and was finding shelter under cars or trailer homes. Anything to keep the rain, snow and wind away from her. The search was on to find Kandy’s original owner, but no one seemed to be missing her. Food was provided for this little cat close to the insulated shelter beside the volunteer’s home and she made good use of it. Being very timid at the time, Kandy would run off if she was noticed or heard any noise. It took three attempts to rescue her in the humane trap, but nice smelly tuna finally lured her in, then it was on to Pet Patrol.

Personality:

It took a few days for Kandy to be sure of her new environment and to become familiar with the routine at the sanctuary. She had her own apartment like cage, and she could see the other cats and the volunteers who cared for her. By the third day she was accepting pets, and loved it. When she first arrived she had a greasy patch on her back, and it needed several soapy spongings to clean that off. Kandy was grateful to see that gone. She is a happy little cat now, gentle and sweet. She loves to have her head scratched, her ears rubbed and to be pet from head to tail. Her toys are a favourite, as is sitting in the cat hammock in the window. Kandy is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her 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:

Mickey was a surprise rescue. One of our volunteers who was trying to rescue 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:

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:

It was a cold, wet autumn day, with a snowstorm blowing in, when Monroe was spotted. He was first noticed by staff at a local golf course, who were working in the restaurant.. They had no idea where he came from, but he was thin and shivering as his paws touched the soaked and swiftly freezing grass. He clearly had no place to find shelter from the changing weather and was obviously starving. The staff immediately brought him inside to warmth and comfort and fed him. He was ravenous. Members of the golf course staff were friends with a volunteer for Pet Patrol, and called her immediately. Soon afterwards Monroe was brought into our care where he is in a climate controlled environment with endless food, fresh water and cuddles.

Personality:

Monroe is the cutest of cats. He’s a sweet, gentle and a funny feline who just wants love and attention. Although a bit uncertain when he first arrived he soon made himself at home, and stretches out near the radiator or curls up in his comfy bed. He also enjoys playtime with toys (a new discovery) the wand toy and chasing down crinkle balls. He is very good with other cats. Monroe is a cuddler and learning that your lap is a great place to lay on for afternoon naps, and being carried is not such a bad thing. Monroe 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 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:

Rajeev was found in the late spring in a small community where many strays wander and are fed. He stood out among the other strays because of his markings. Rajeev had found a feeding station with weather-proof cat shelters made from Rubbermaid totes. The food and water there was replenished daily. A kind woman who tends to most of the strays in the area recognized that he was a friendly but frightened cat. She brought Rajeev indoors to a sun-room. He had a few minor injuries, mysterious long scratches across his shoulders, and his coat was dry and bristly. After some time, care and good nutrition he healed up nicely. He was then brought to Pet Patrol and has done very well since.

Personality:

Rajeev (the name means “beautiful blue sky”, chosen due to his striking blue eyes) is very cool, calm and collected. He’s an easy-going cat that likes to get up on furniture, and is learning that kitty climbers are pretty nice, but struggles a bit with hardwood floors. Rajeev is quite affectionate and will lay near you and purr up a storm whenever he can. Though he’s not quite a lap cat yet, he’s definitely a people cat. He plays gently and gets along great with other cats. He can be an only cat or a great companion to another kitty. Rajeev is ready to be adopted into his forever home, one that will welcome him into the family and keep him safe indoors

Rescue:

One of our volunteers, has a feeding station on her front porch, sometimes feeding as many as 16 stray cats at at time. She called about a new group of seven or eight friendly cats who were coming on a regular basis to eat. She and her neighbours had never been seen any of these cats before in their small community and figured they were just dropped off. Possibly to a neighbouring farm. Someone thinking that it would good idea to take cats who may never have been outdoors, to live in a barn in the middle of the winter. The cats were all friendly and affectionate and certainly didn’t deserve this type of life of abandonment, freezing weather, little food and no shelter where there is any warmth. At least they had regular feeding and water at on her porch. Reid was the sixth cat of the group to come into her care and settled in very quickly.

Personality:

Reid is a very nice and friendly boy who likes belly rubs. He is a pretty handsome boy too. He purrs readily and looks forward to the attention he receives at the sanctuary. He has done well with the other cats, since he was part of a colony of cats before, and thinks it is just natural to have buddies. Reid is learning about being indoors again, and is curious about his surroundings, wanting to see everything and making himself comfortable. He was not sure about toys in the beginning, having never seen a crinkle ball, toy mouse or plastic spring, but he is getting the hang of it. Reid is ready to be adopted into his forever home.

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:

Shilo and his siblings were from a very rural farm. An elderly couple own the farm, are in their mid eighties and their cat colony has gotten out of control. The daughter was trying to help and get things under control as her parents (especially her mother) are failing. Initially the farm was a beef operation but the cattle are gone now so the barn is much colder this winter. Being conscientious the daughter moved all the kitties over to the horse barn and into the tack room where it is warmer. She has diligently tried to make them all friendly as she realizes that it gives them a much better chance of finding homes. Some she had spayed or neutered; and she is willing to continue to work with our volunteer to have more altered. She asked if we would be able to take in four kittens who were affectionate and comfortable with people. Soon after Shilo, Sven, Sybelle and Smidge came into Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

Shilo is a real cutie. He wants nothing more than to be in your arms, being cuddled and carried around. He will trot around after you, wanting to keep you company and see what you are doing. He is gentle and sweet, and likes his siblings and toys as well. He can quite often be found cuddled up to one of them, in a puddle of fur and purr. It would be great for him to have a playmate or sibling in his new home. Shilo will run around after any toys that crinkle or jingle, and the wand toy is amazing. He will scale the kitty climber and watch the neighbourhood from his perch, delighted in the birds and squirrels. this little wonder 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.

Personality:

This pretty little cat is friendly and affectionate with people once she gets to know them, and would do best in a quiet home without a lot of unpredictable activity. She is good with other cats and can be found nestled into a puddle of fur during nap time. She is also quite playful and active and can be seen running across the room with her tail high, in a game of Chase with another cat. She loves the kitty climber and toys that rattle and dangle. Suzy is sweet natured and she loves her people. She is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

But it didn’t take him long to feel safe and enjoy the head scratches and back massages given daily. Sven is quite a character and will flop over when you greet him, looking at you upside down. He is a joy. It was a lot of fun watching him discover toys, kitty climbers and the cat tunnel. Sven does best with a playmate and it would be nice for him to have one in his new home, or a sibling to go along with him. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home.

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 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.

Vera had been noticed out and about in the neighbourhood for some time now, but only from a distance as she was timid. The sisters took this mother cat and her young kittens in, only to have Vera give birth again while in their care. The sisters decided to adopt the first litter for their own, and set Vera up with her new kittens in a spare room in the basement. They feared getting attached to this second set of kittens, so they limited their interaction with them as much as possible. This was not a great plan in regards to making them family friendly pets though. The sisters kept the kittens until they were five months old, then searched around to see if there would be any organizations that could help rehome them and Vera as well. Asking at a local pet store, they were put in contact with Pet Patrol, and the entire feline family came into a foster home soon after. All the kittens were adopted into loving homes, but Vera needed time to adjust to living an indoor life. Now it is her turn to find her family.

Personality:

Vera has adorable ears and beautifully expressive eyes. In her present foster home she is exposed to other cats as well as dogs, and although she is able to co-exist, we feel that she would be more confident in a home as an only pet. She is a shy and very timid lady, and will need a home with lots of love and patience to allow her to adjust. She likes to spend the bulk of her time in one room, away from the busy house, with everything she needs close at hand. The opportunity to expand her space as an only cat is definitely in her future. Vera is a very sweet cat, and likes a head and neck rub as well as bum rubs, and is a fan of forehead kisses. This amazing girl deserves a home where she can live out her indoor days safe and treated like the princess she is. Vera is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the home and keep her safely indoors.
