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 Ariel 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. Ariel is being fostered with another of our cats, Mason, and the two have developed a great affection for each other.  Arial is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

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

Personality:

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

Rescue:

Brody, Bronwyn, Brynly and, Bronson came from a country property not far from the city. This was a farm that made sure all their cats were spayed or neutered, fed properly, clean water provided and had cat houses in a heated tack room. As often happens at farms, people abandon their unwanted cats at the end of the lane; cat follows lane to closest building and tries to take up residency. This is how their mother cat arrived. This was luckily a welcoming colony of barn cats, and their momma was noticed by the owner right away. She was very pregnant at the time and gave birth shortly afterwards. Not wanting the kittens to be raised outside, they were taken to her father’s home and did very well until he had a stroke. The kittens had been a great source of entertainment for him, but while recovering he was unable to look after them. The four kittens needed to be placed with a rescue organization quickly and they soon came into Pet Patrol care. The mother cat has since been spayed and remains on the farm as one of their favourite cats.

Personality:

Brody is the leader of the litter. His siblings, a little unsure of their new environment at the sanctuary, looked to him for direction. He is the first to investigate the Kitten Room, where there are multiple cat climbers, window seats and cubby holes to curl up in. He checked out the toys, those that bounce, crinkle and spin around. Playing with toys has become a new reality for them all and they have had great fun with them. All the kittens are sweet and gentle and would do well adopted with a sibling into a quiet home. They are dear little cats who have been treated well and with respect. Brody is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep them safely indoors

Rescue:

A family from a small town near the sanctuary had a house fire last spring. They had just completed the rebuild and moved back into their home again. One day this little white kitty began hanging around the house. She may have been there during the construction process, but they hadn’t noticed her until they moved in. She was so friendly that they thought for sure a family was missing their beloved pet. They posted her picture on social media with no replies unfortunately. They brought her into their heated garage during cold nights and made sure she had food and water. While outside she would look at them inside from the front door window and when the family went downstairs to their basement, she would watch them from the basement window. They couldn’t keep her due to allergies, and began looking around for a home for her. Their neighbour told them about Pet Patrol in hopes we had room and soon little Chia came into our care.

Personality:

Chia is a dear little cat who loves her people. She is very grateful to be rescued and be somewhere warm and dry, have plenty of food and people who care about her. We may never find her original home, and it is very sad for Chia to lose all that is familiar to her, but she is ready for her forever people. Chia loves to be brushed and pet, to sit on your lap and she will keep you company. She does better as an only cat in a mature home where she can be the cat that makes her person happy. Chia is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Pretty little Didi came from the home of an older man who runs a lawn care company, it is seasonal work, and allows him time off in the winter and on rainy days. He took note of a little cat coming onto his property and although timid, he began feeding her (this was Didi’s mom). She was thin and rough looking, and he felt she needed his help. He spent a lot of time trying to gain her trust, but it took two years to convince this feral cat to come into the safety of his house and during that time she produced a litter kittens. He was finally successful when he gathered up the babies and she followed him inside. She continued to be an indoor/outdoor cat, and to breed, so there were a few litters of various ages living in the house now. Every day he went to the grocery store and bought them fresh cooked chickens. They are well fed. He loved them. This past year she finally came into house for good and he could pet her and he continued to socialize her kittens. The man had plans to go to Florida for two or three months over the winter, so all the cats needed to be placed somewhere else. All together there were nine cats of various ages that came into our care. The older kittens were very social and the younger ones took a little more time.

Personality:
Didi is such a pretty little cat and you can hardly take your eyes off her. She is adorable. Slim and elegant, she is also gentle and sweet, and a little timid. She would excel in a quiet home with just one or two people, and another cat would be great too. With time and patience she has shown us that she is friendly, but not as forthcoming to new people just yet. She is playful and loves to join in on games of Tag and eagerly chases the elusive red laser dot. Usually perched in the window, or sunning herself on the soft beds, she has taken full advantage of living indoors. Didi is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Edie came into Pet Patrol care with another kitty Evie. They could very well be sisters or mother and daughter, and they are very sweet and gentle cats. Edie came from a country property where there were no longer any animals in the barn. The couple living on the property had retired from their dairy farm duties but the husband kept his office out there. It was a heated room and the two cats spent part of their day with him. He really liked them, much to his wife’s chagrin, and insisted on keeping them. His wife insisted on making sure they were spayed, so arrangements were made with the vet. Once examined it was found that Edie was extremely dehydrated, Evie had a cold and both were completely covered in fleas. Upon hearing this the wife relinquished custody to the vet, she was not interested in any extra expenses for medication and treatments. The vet called Pet Patrol and we are quite pleased and relieved that these pretty girls are now in our care so they can have a healthy and secure future.

Personality:

Edie is very curious, gentle and calm. She can be both independent or cuddly with the other cats in the sanctuary. To her frequent visitors at the sanctuary, Edie will greet them when they arrive and chat away at feeding time. It has been wonderful watching her discover toys and become a happy and healthy cat. Often you can find her curled up on the couch, basking in a sunbeam or watching the world outside from the kitty climber. She is a funny little cat and it will take a bit of time for her to adjust to a new home, but once comfortable she is wonderful. Edie is ready to be adopted into her 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 Commitment 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:

There is a property that is known for having horses, a large barn and many many cats. Because the owners had not been keeping check on them, feeding them properly and having the cats spayed/neutered, the numbers increased every year. It had gotten to the point were the neighbours were feeding the cats because they looked so malnourished and miserable. Their life was of dirt, feces, wet and cold weather and no one caring about them. Many of the female cats would leave the stable to have their kittens in a chicken coop on a neighbouring property. It was safe and insulated, no chickens any more but there were nice nesting boxes for them to have their litters. The woman who owned the coop lived a good distance from the horse farm, and marveled at how far the cats would go for food and safety. Eventually the property was going to be sold and the cats were in dire need of being rescued. Unfortunately most of the cats were feral, but some like Harper showed promise of being socialized. The woman opened up her long unused work shop which was heated and began housing a lot of the cats there.

Personality:

Petite little Harper has come a long way in a short period of time with Pet Patrol. When she first arrived she was not wanting people to interact with her at all. Now we can pet her and she will come for her treats, but she is still shy with new people. She will excel in a quiet home with one or two people where the focus is on her and she will feel like it is her home. Cats change when they feel the love. Playful is her middle name, and she is right in there with the other cats chasing toys and being silly. She loves the kitty climber and watching the birds from the safety of the window sill. Harper is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One hat will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Poor Hobbs was found at a large Feed Mill in the downtown area of a rural town. Because of the feed, and people supplying food for the cats, there is a large feral colony that also includes abandoned frightened/friendly cats. One woman in town has taken it upon herself to feed the cats every day. She is unable to work but makes use of her time by helping the cats. She gets up every morning and walks the many blocks, with food in hand, to the Mill. She has arranged with the employees to supply fresh water to them and she also tries to tame them. Those that are friendly come to Pet Patrol for adoption. She noticed Hobbs limping for a couple months and knowing he would not be easy to put in a carrier she really concentrated on taming him. We are unsure how he became lame in his back leg, but once rescued he was immediately taken to the vet that Pet Patrol uses for xrays and evaluation. Nothing broken, but probably ligament damage, which will heal with time and patience.

Personality:

Hobbs has shown us what a sweet cat he is. He is gentle and loving, so appreciative of the help he has received through our volunteers and vet care. He is good with other cats and has made himself at home in the sanctuary. He is used to living with a variety of cats and their different personalities and is liking the attention from them and the people who come in to visit. Hobbs likes to be pet and will push his head into your hand, rubs up against your leg for attention and is quite happy to lay beside you on the couch or bed. He is a dear little cat. Hobbs is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Holly has been let down by quite a few folks in her short life. She found herself at the city shelter and was adopted in 2010 by a gentleman as a Christmas gift for his 10 year old daughter. Sadly the man and his wife separated and the woman and daughter were not animal people. Holly had little interaction with them and they basically just fed her. Eventually the ex husband found her a loving home and she bonded to the couple, but sadly, a few years later they separated and Holly was left behind. Since that time she has been living with someone who loves animals and who has been taking good care of her, but they are now battling cancer. Holly needs a new home again, a forever home.

Personality:

Holly would love to be an only cat. She was not raised with other felines and is quite independent of them. However, she loves her people. She is very good at communicating her wants. She will brush up against you and bunt her head against your leg, asking for you to pet her and pick her up. Once in your arms she loves to bury her face in your chest and purr loudly. She will get up and sit beside you or lay on you to be petted. Such good company. Like most cats she loves her cat nip toys, treats and cat naps – but will do a 100 yard dash for no reason. Holly would like a home of her own where she can finally bond with someone who will not leave her. She is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Told by his rescuers: One summer about three years ago, a sweet faced brown tabby started hanging around our country house. He was very shy and would bolt at the first sign of us. We began feeding him and he slowly became a regular visitor, but he remained very wild. As winter approached, we set up insulated shelters for him and he would use them. About two years ago, he had a badly broken tail, bent at 90 degrees about halfway down. We suspect it was a predator that had tried to catch him, then a short time later the broken half disappeared leaving a raw stump that eventually healed. By now we were calling him Manx and all attempts to rescue him failed but he was more tolerant of us and came for food when we called him. Recently we noticed pools of blood on the path leading up to the deck then saw that the stump of his tail was raw and severely damaged again. He was obviously in pain. It became clear that he needed to be trapped but would he allow it? Manx was nervous looking at the trap but after some hesitation, he finally went in. We were elated. Soon he was at the vet clinic having the remainder of his tail amputated and he was neutered as well.

Personality:
Manx is a stocky, muscular, but sweet faced cat who has adjusted to living indoors very quickly. He sees the luxuries of soft beds, a climate controlled house and the bottomless food dish. He thinks he is living at the Ritz after a life on the run from predators in the country. He can be found sprawled out on the cat bed with several other Pet Patrol cats, all waiting for their adopters to come. He still is a bit timid of all the new visitors, but is doing pretty good with the regular volunteers that come to the sanctuary. Manx is almost ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him 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:

Mason first appeared at a well known cat lady’s feeding station in the dead of winter. This was in a small town and he was observed at different times of the night, middle of the day or early morning, always looking desperate and cold. He ate ravenously whenever he found the food, and then would disappear under the deck behind the back of the house. The lady was part of a TNR program and a live trap was set out for him in hopes that he could be rescued and brought indoors. It didn’t take but a minute. Mason eagerly went in after the canned food and then onto safety. He was examined by a vet, neutered and vaccinated, then brought into Pet Patrol care. He has successfully recovered from his ordeal and has shown us that he is a friendly and affectionate boy.

Personality:

It took a little while for Mason to settle into his foster home. He was great with the other cat there and and friendly to his foster mom, but living in a house was probably new to him. He thought that beds were great, and the TV was quite a mystery. He soon adjusted to the routine of a person, before this boy’s only routine was going from feeding station to feeding station and trying to stay warm and dry. He has since learned of the luxury of watching the world from the window sill and not being part of the ever changing weather. That food is plentiful and that people are kind. Mason is being fostered with another of our cats, Ariel, and the two have developed a great affection for each other.  Mason is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Mickey was a surprise rescue. One of our volunteers who was trying to 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 received a message from a local shelter about Ollie. This gorgeous long haired boy was having a difficult time settling in and they were unable to find a home for him. His original owner turned him in to be re-adopted because they just didn’t have time for him. Soon afterwards he was in a new home, but it was a small apartment and he felt confined and was quite stressed out. Over the holidays his owner took Ollie to his parents home, a nice sized family home, and Ollie did just fine. The parents were not keen on having a cat, so Ollie once again was at the shelter. By now he was pretty upset and not doing well. Pet Patrol took him in, and he is in a foster home where he took a little bit of time to settle in; but he is doing much better now.

Personality:

Loving, affectionate, lap cat, that is the description of Ollie. He is a dear cat, who loves his people and is quite interactive with them. He is food motivated and it is quite easy to get him into the carrier with a treat or two, or just for initial bonding. He is very intelligent and great at playing with toys. Ollie loves being with people the most and will follow you around from room to room. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

There is a property that is known for having horses, a large barn and many many cats. Because the owners had not been looking after them (feeding them properly and having the cats spayed/neutered), the numbers increased every year. The cats were now migrating to the neighbours who started feeding them because they looked so malnourished and miserable. Their life was of dirt, feces, wet and cold weather and no one caring about them. Many of the female cats would leave the stable to have their kittens in a chicken coop on a neighbouring property. It was safe and insulated, no chickens any more but there were nice nesting boxes for them to have their litters. The woman who owned the coop lived a good distance from the horse farm, and marveled at how far the cats would go for food and safety. Eventually the property was going to be sold and the cats were in dire need of being rescued. Unfortunately most were feral, but some like Riley showed promise of being socialized.

Personality:

Riley didn’t trust anyone when he arrived at Pet Patrol and rightly so. People had not been very good to him and he needed some time to trust them. We are now able to pet him and comfort him and he is accepting new people approaching him too. He needs some time yet to fully show his personality, but what he has demonstrated is a playful and happy go lucky cat. He is happy in the sanctuary and good with the other cats that we have there. After all, all he has ever known is a colony. He likes to play chase with the other cats, and curl up in his cubby watching everything that is going on. He is not shy in that way. Riley 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 received a text message from one of their volunteers who lives way out in the country, in the boonies as they say. Her cat had recently slipped out of the house, again, and she had observed cat tracts in the mud and presumed it was him. She set up a humane trap to safely bring him back inside, he was just under the back porch, so she thought this would be quick and easy. But instead of it being her kitty, this time it was a new cat, one that she had never seen before. An orange and white boy who she named Rusty. Did he come from a neighbouring farm? That would have been quite a fair distance for him to travel since neighbours can’t be seen from her house, and you literally have to drive to them. Was he maybe abandoned by his owners? Quiet and concerned, Rusty was quickly brought into Pet Patrol care where we made him comfortable and observed his personality.

Personality:

Since that time we have worked diligently with Rusty to socialize him. He probably was born on a rural property, but had never been touched by people. At this time in his life, although young, he has chosen not to accept our attempts at touching him. He will actually dip really low to the ground to avoid our pets. He loves other cats though and makes a great buddy, always walking beside them affectionately or cuddled up on the big cat bed. He has a magnificent coat with beautiful auburn and orange colours that is as soft as silk when you get the opportunity to touch it. He is playful and fun loving, grateful to be indoors in a warm and loving environment, but still prefers the company of cats to people. Rusty is ready to be adopted into his forever home as a second or third kitty in the home. One that will welcome him into the family, accept him for who he is, and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a call from someone who had two cats in her care and needed to rehome them asap, it was 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:

In the Spring of 2011, this lovely little cat was dumped in the country near a farm. She was very friendly and approachable. When the lady of the house told her daughter, she immediately wanted to rescue her from the outdoor life as she had obviously been someone’s pet. It was a few days before Shilo was seen again but she had an injured eye this time and so needed to be brought in asap. Different cat rescues were contacted with no success, but a friend agreed to help foster her. On the day Shilo was to be  picked up she must have known help was on the way as she re-appeared with yet another surprise – all her five kittens. She was not much more than a kitten herself. Once the kittens were weened and homes found, Shilo, who had been treated by the vet for the injured eye, was spayed and at that time it was determined her eye had to be removed. The woman who rescued Shilo, fell in love with her and has provided a loving home ever since, but now life has changed for everyone. Shilo maintains her loving personality which is of great comfort for the woman who is now fighting cancer. She can no longer provide for this little cat and is looking for a loving home for her.

Personality:

Shilo is a gentle soul and will look at you with full love in her eye. She is very content being petted and brushed. She prefers all four paws on the floor but readily will jump up to you and snuggle on the couch or bed. She is very playful especially with catnip toys and enjoys her treats. She gets along fine with other cats, as she has lived with them before. She hasn’t met any dogs, but perhaps a passive older dog who just needs a buddy. Shilo 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 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. Susie was the mother to most of these cats, 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 Susie, Simba, Patsy, Harrison and Freda are thriving in the sanctuary.

Personality:

When Susie first arrived at Pet Patrol she had been taken right from her outdoor life, to the vet clinic, spayed and then to her recovery room at the sanctuary. Poor girl did not know what hit her ad was a bit out of sorts.. What is this place she must have wondered? She has integrated in with the other cats very well, and made herself at home now. She likes to gaze out the window and see the world outside, but is content to stay put inside. She is a petite little cat who is looking for a gentle and caring person, in a quiet and cat friendly home. Susie is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her 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.

Rescue:

During a cold spell in the fall Vera showed up on the porch of two kind sisters with her first litter of kittens in tow, seeking shelter from the quickly approaching winter. 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.
