Rescue:

Alli and Angel originally came from a horse farm which means a lot of very large animals with very big hooves, who have the capability of stepping on or rolling on cats and kittens. The barn is filled with bales of hay, feeding troughs, machinery and it is always cold, damp and rough. A mother cat came over from the neighboring dairy farm to have her kittens. Cats will often do this if they feel threatened in their home environment. There are a lot of unspayed female‘s around therefore the breeding is continual. There were eight litters born on this property in the past year. The population has become overwhelming and the woman was happy for our help. Our Trap Neuter Release program is still working on the property to ensure that every cat is spayed or neutered and any new ones arriving are looked after as well.

Personality:

Alli and Angel are similar in personality. They are both active, love to run and play with toys and tumble with each other (lots). They are easy to pick up and carry, and will come for pets and sit near or with you when reading or watching TV. They can be a wee bit cautious to start with but are not timid. They are curious of new surroundings, and when they are done adventuring they will cuddle up together. Angel is easy going and laid back. Allie takes a bit longer to relax, but will get there. Angel & Alli are ready to be adopted into their forever home. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safe and indoors

Rescue:

Catie is a kitty that was living in a very small village just minutes from the city limits. She made her rounds to the houses and some fed her, and she found shelter in other areas, but no one really knew where she came from and no one took her into their care. Catie was shy and unsure of people, but one man was able to pet her. He has seen her many times walking through his yard, across his patio and down his drive doing her rounds of the neighbourhood. He realized that Catie was incredibly thin and put some food out for her, then one day she appeared to be limping. Feeling that she needed help, he called around to see if anyone would help, and eventually found Pet Patrol. Once in our care, and after a vet examination it was felt that she has injured a tendon in her back left leg, and there was little to do to help that but time. Catie still has a bit of a limp but that doesn’t stop her from doing the stairs, jumping up on the climber and running around in play with the other cats.

Personality:

She has come around nicely from a timid and unsure cat, to one that rubs up against your legs, purrs deeply and likes to be pet. She is still guarded with that leg, but does like a good head and chin scratch and enjoys the attention of people. Catie is great with the other cats and will stand side by side with them, sharing the food dish and likes to have a cuddle with them as well. Catie is ready to be adopted into a gentle and serene home, hopefully with a kind companion kitty. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors

Rescue:

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

Personality:

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

Rescue:

Homeless cat colonies are everywhere. When a cat is not spayed she will have a litter of kittens, once, twice and sometimes three times in a year. They will seek out shelter where ever they can, and buildings, sheds, decks and abandoned cars become shelter for them. Not ideal mind you, not like a home, but maybe enough to keep the wind, rain and snow off of them. Conan and his feline family were living in a trailer park close to a small town. The people living there were feeding some of the cats, but not doing anything about the breeding issues. When all of the female kittens mature, and breed in the same year, then the colony explodes rather quickly and helpless kittens are born unwanted. A woman was visiting her friend at the park and seeing the colony grow, they started to rescue some of the kittens and two of the moms. She brought Conan and his two sisters in and tried socializing them, then sought out rescue organizations to help with finding the cats permanent homes..

Personality:

Conan was unsure of his new foster home when he arrived with his sisters. He soon warmed up and purrs beautifully when pet and reassured but he is still shy. Like his mother he is a gentle player, and can be found sharing a toy with the other cats of his own age. He likes cardboard boxes, toys that dangle and the cat tunnel is a favourite. Conan is a very handsome boy with auburn colours in his coat which are rich and make him quite handsome. He is ready to be adopted into an adult only home that is predictable and easy going. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Pet Patrol became aware of Darius and the serious situation in which he was living when a call was received from a Veterinarian. A woman, one of his clients, is a severe hoarder and her home has an extraordinary amount of clutter and cats, which has built up over time. She admitted that she had thirty five cats and fourteen kittens living in her home with her. It is a confined space, extremely unclean and an unhealthy environment for all. Darius lived with the constant smell of urine and feces, as well as dust and mold issues.The woman was employed and provided the cats with premium cat food, however she was unable to have them spayed or neutered. Subsequently, because of the deterioration of the rental property, she has been evicted from her home. With the help of the Veterinarian, Pet Patrol and other cat rescue organizations we are bringing the cats into our care for adoption.

Personality:

Darius is a very handsome boy with a shiny black coat. He likes to be petted when he is laying down, and will seek you out when you look like you need company. He gets along very well with other cats and has become more open and comfortable with new people and his new foster home. It certainly must have been over whelming for him in the beginning. Darius loves to lay in the window and soak up all the sun. Like most black cats he thinks he is solar powered. This lovely boy is playful and will give a bouncing ball a run for its money and can chase down a laser pen light like no other. He is a smaller and slimmer cat that other males and is gentle and sweet in nature. Darius is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Delaney is a handsome boy with emerald green eyes, who was born to a feral cat. She was lucky enough to find refuge on a country property during the winter time. It was brutally cold outside, and the wind just whipped off of the open fields, there was little shelter for her, but she found a spot in the shed. The couple living on the property set up a heat lamp for her, cozy bed, food and water and checked on her daily. At the time she kept her distance. In the summer she gave birth to five kittens, Demi, Delaney, Dooley, Dori and Dickens. The couple asked Pet Patrol for help with finding homes for the cats. In the meantime, until they were old enough, they were asked to bring the young feline family into a safer and more secure space so the kittens would not become prey. The couple brought them into the shop where they could be socialized and they all thrived. Although the mother cat remains on the property as she is not social, the kittens are now ready for adoption.

Personality:

Delaney is very lovable and a bit shy to start. He is okay with being picked up and likes to cuddle with you just about anywhere. He has his cozy hiding spots, and will let his sister Dori snuggle with him under a blanket, so the foster family is careful around blankets that have distinguishing cat shaped lumps. He is an active and playful cat and chases his toys, and tosses them around, but is also a very quiet and mellow kitten. Being the first time in a real home it has been a bit of an adjustment for him but once he gets to know you he will come for petting and playtime too. Delaney is ready to be adopted into his forever home, hopefully with his sister Dori. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Personality:

Dickens is the friendliest of the litter, affectionate with his siblings, and very talkative. He will respond to you if you imitate his happy meows. He is very curious, active but not hyper. He adores being played with, especially with the wand toys and laser pointers. He is often found cuddling with one of his siblings, is good with being picked up and likes being with his care givers. He will follow you around, getting scratches on the head, cheeks and chin. He will do great in any household. Dickens is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

While sitting in the office at the Pet Patrol sanctuary, one of our volunteers noticed a cat, nonchalantly walking past the window. He was thin but the most outstanding thing about him was his tail, or lack thereof. It was a bloody stump. The cat stopped and looked at our volunteer and held his ground when she opened the window and put out a plate of canned food. He then turned and walked away. Hmmm. Over the next few months he was approached, but ran away, noticed laying Spinx like in the long grass, and strolling across the back lawn. Several attempts to rescue him by using a humane trap failed and we thought we would never be able to help him. Late one evening someone noticed him going under the garden shed. There was no real shelter under there and it was obvious that this dear boy was not seeking to over winter in the nearby barn. He had nowhere to go. The humane trap was set up once more, alongside the shed and finally on the second night he was rescued. The very next morning he was taken into the vet clinic and several inches amputated off his tail, he was neutered and any injuries attended to. His recovery was successful.

Personality:

It took a while to gain Doc’s trust, as he was outside for quite a while, but now he is out and about in the sanctuary. He was quite happy to see other cats in our care and integrated in without any issue. He is still a little unsure of toys but we can find him tapping a ball, and sleeping in the kitty tunnel, but mostly he is sunning himself by the window. Doc has come a long way from the skinny but confident cat on the street. He now has a nice house cat pudge to him and is accepting to petting and a good scratch under the chin. A back massage goes a long way with him. Doc is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Dooley is a handsome boy with soft green eyes, who was born to a feral cat. She was lucky enough to find refuge on a country property during the winter time. It was brutally cold outside, and the wind just whipped off of the open fields, there was little shelter for her, but she found a spot in the shed. The couple living on the property set up a heat lamp for her, cozy bed, food and water and checked on her daily. At the time she kept her distance.

Personality:

Dooley doesn’t mind being carried around, and is a very sweet, quiet boy. He wants to be a lap cat and is very gentle with children. He can appear to be cautious but becomes more comfortable when you sit with him so he can gain his confidence, and then readily accepts love. Once more relaxed, he stretches out, purrs and thoroughly enjoys getting scratched and stroked. Dooley is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that is calm and predictable, where he will be welcomed into the family and kept safely indoors.

Demi is a pretty little  girl with gold and green eyes, who was born to a feral cat. She was lucky enough to find refuge on a country property during the winter time. It was brutally cold outside, and the wind just whipped off of the open fields, there was little shelter for her, but she found a spot in the shed.

The couple brought them into the shop where they could be socialized and they all thrived. Although the mother cat remains on the property as she is not social, the kittens are now ready for adoption.

Personality:

Dori is bright and cheery and loves to be by your side. She isn’t easily spooked and once comfortable is very curious. She has no problem going right up to the foster mom’s golden retriever to sniff her, she isn’t frightened at all. Dori is active and has a gentle, mild temperament. She prefers not to be picked up just yet, but will follow you around to see what is going on, which is the opportunity to pet her and cuddle her, which she loves. Dori likes to snuggle with her brother Delaney and they both can be found under blankets together (so the foster family is careful around blankets that have distinguishing cat shaped lumps). Dori is ready to be adopted into her forever home, hopefully with her brother Delaney. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

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

Personality:

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

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:

Forte came into our care when he was just three weeks old, adopted and sadly returned to us. The initial phone call was from an elderly man who had found Forte screaming in the garden beside his house. Not seeing a mother cat around he took the little guy inside, but he didn’t know how to care for him and didn’t want to spend any money on him for the proper kitten milk replacement food etc. Knowing that we had an experienced volunteer who could bottle feed him, the man contacted Pet Patrol and soon afterwards Forte came into our care. He was nurtured and cared for, and the foster mom decided to adopt him into her home with her two dogs. But as he matured it was obvious that he was bothered by the dogs and became upset with them. A new home was found for him by the owner, and now we will fast forward a year. Pet Patrol received the second call on Forte, and this time it was from the city shelter. He had been turned in and custody relinquished. If not for his microchip we may never have had his dear boy returned into our care.

 

Personality:

Forte is extremely cuddly and sweet.  He always wants to be on your lap when you are relaxing in front of the TV or working at your desk.  He politely asks and then makes himself at home.  The same is for bedtime, he will curl up in the crook of your arm or fall sound asleep, purring contently, on your chest.  This handsome boy is also quite playful and loves the wand toys that he can chase, pounce on and jump at.  Forte has had a lot of changes in his life and is deserving of a forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Gable is yet another of the many cats that find themselves without a home, people to care for them, or any type of comfort. He showed up at a kind couple’s front door, late in the summer time and made himself known. He would come every night around the same time and leave almost exactly three hours later, not knowing where he came from or where he went. He proved to be friendly and affectionate. So where did he come from? We may never know. Perhaps he became lost, was deliberately abandoned or maybe got into a vehicle unnoticed and was taken far away from home. Eventually named Gable, he took up residence on the same couples porch in a blanketed box by the door and made it know that this was where he intended on staying. Occasionally he would ask to come inside when the weather was too cold, did very well with their house cat, and once warmed up went outside again. Gable is now in the safety of Pet Patrol and doing very well. He is content and happy.

Personality:

This handsome boy loves a good chin scratch, ears rubbed and petting all the way from his head to his tail. He is a stockily built boy with a kind heart. Gable will roll over and let you rub his belly. He is silly, playful and fun loving. It was a delight to watch him explore toys, test them out, toss them and chase after them. He has such a good time with the cat nip mouse. Gable gets a long fine with the other cats in the sanctuary and is quite easy going and laid back. He is happy and content to be indoors and 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 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.

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:

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 and his brothers were timid cats when they first arrived at Pet Patrol, but with time and patience have become sweet natured cats. They are polite and relaxed, they love other cats and like to be pet and brushed. When you are sitting on the couch or laying in bed, they will come and flop down beside you. They are attentive to other cats, and show their affection many times a day, so Pet Patrol is looking for a home that has a buddy cat for them, or hopefully a sibling. Jamie is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the home and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Jetta originally came from a barn, and she was found when she was quite tiny. She was initially frightened of everyone and everything, and it took the people who own the property a few months to be able to pet her and gain her trust. She was living there with two other cats who were already spayed and neutered, so how she got to their barn, being so young at the time, is a mystery. At one point they found that she had fallen into a bucket of oil, and she was brought inside, bathed and pampered for a few days. Jetta was socializing up by this time, and they could see she quite enjoyed her indoor life. The family however did not want another indoor cat, and so she went back out to the barn. They finally decided that this little kitten needed to be adopted into a home when they noticed a nomad tom cat prowling around, and being small, Jetta was his target. That is when they sought out rescue organizations and found Pet Patrol.

Personality:

Written by her foster mom: Jetta is the biggest sweetheart you will ever meet! Although she can be shy at first, give her a little bit of time and she will be your best friend. With dedicated playtime she enjoys most of her days cuddled up on the couch with you, nuzzling your face, or following you around the house telling you about her “eventful” day. Jetta does well with other pets in a house, but also on her own and she has plenty of love to give to her future owner, and a future furry friend as well. This pretty girl is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

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

Personality:

Kurtis is gentle, sweet and quiet. He was a little shell shocked when he first arrived at the sanctuary, because everything was so strange to him. But he accepted petting from day one, and soon relaxed and adjusted very well to his new surroundings. He can be found with other cats a lot of the time, laying near them or curled up together. It would be nice for him to be adopted into a home with a playmate. Kurtis likes gentle games of Tag, and will chase after the laser pen light, or anything that dangles. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Luna and her kittens were born in a barn, where there were many litters of kittens discovered in the hayloft. A lady who rescues cats and coordinates the Trap-Neuter-Release program, had initially heard about the farm in the spring through a mutual friend. During our volunteer’s visit to the barn she found several of the females were very pregnant (Luna being one of them) and some of the other cats were showing unhealthy signs of malnutrition, and extensive dental decay from not having a decent diet. Their daily meal consisted of the lowest grade of cat food and the occasional can of Spaghettios dumped on top, which is hardly a proper diet for a carnivore animal. Those needing medical care were rescued first. Returning to the barn a few weeks later, kittens had been born in the hayloft, and because the moms share caring for the kittens all the little ones had eye infections. It was important to rescue them right away, so they could be treated and not have eye damage. The rescue mission was successful and Luna and her four babies came to Pet Patrol when they were only three and a half weeks old.

Personality:

Luna is a lovely cat who is calm, easy going and affectionate. She is good with her people and will come up to you for petting, a little cat chat and will definitely let you know when it is dinner time. She likes other cats and can be found laying on the same bed with them, or going nose to nose, she fit right into the sanctuary without issue. Luna likes to play and is active. She likes her toys and especially the catnip mice as she will roll around on the floor with it in pure delight. Luna is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Mama Mia’s future rescuer answered a community post with a photo of a group of tiny, four week old kittens that were “feral” and living under a deck. Kittens, while cute to look at are part of the main cause of cat overpopulation if left to live on the streets. Concerned for their welfare, she contacted the property owner and asked if she could rescue them. Since the family was going away for a few days they thought it ideal to have her set up some traps. Problem was, she could not find the kittens anywhere. She managed to rescue Mama Mia (who had previously had five litters in two years under the same deck) on the first day. Over the next three days she scoured the property, set up several traps and putting out food and shelter, as well as crawling on her stomach in the dirt and rain under the 40 foot deck, but still not a sign of the babies. She had almost given up hope until the people returned home and said they would help. Within 30 minutes all six kittens had been rescued and on their way to be reunited with their mother. The kittens had popped out as soon as they heard a familiar voice.

Personality:

Mama Mia is a real sweetheart of a cat. Poor girl had 6 litters in the last two years, and really needed a rest when she first arrived. She was very shy initially but is now more confident with her caregivers and greets them when they spend time with her. She will rub up against their legs, with her tail high in the air. If she needs to stick up for herself she will, but Mia prefers a quiet place away from commotion and business of an active family. A quieter home would be preferred. She doesn’t mind being picked up and carried around to show her things and she will play if you encourage her. Mama 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:

Max was living with his owner who was eighty seven years old. He had a quiet and comfortable life, lots of petting and snuggles in front of the TV. There were a few visitors, most were family who helped the man out since his partner had been moved to a nursing home. She unfortunately suffered from Alzheimer and was unable to stay at home. So Max was great company for this elderly man who had his challenges as well. When he went into the hospital and doctors had to amputate his other leg, the family knew he would never be returning home. What to do with Max? No one in the family wanted him. This is not an uncommon, but an incredibly sad situation when a senior is unable to look after their pet any longer and no one else wants it. Luckily a foster home came forward just as Max came into our care and he was able to go from one home to the other easily.

Personality:

Being an only cat in a very quiet home, Max is used to having his own space and can be a little shy at first. Everything is new to him and in the beginning it can be a bit over whelming. But he will seek you out for petting with mewing like a kitten. It is very sweet. He does enjoy gentle belly rubs and being brushed. He actually has experienced a shoulder ride in his foster home and was ok with that, and loves to explore his new environment. Max is ready for his next adventure, a new home, and he will again make someone very happy. A home that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a message from a man who was a property developer. He was concerned for some kittens that were coming over to his property and playing in the bushes or running through the back yard. There was a lot of construction going on, big trucks, heavy machinery and loud noises, all unsafe areas for little cats to be. He first saw the mother cat, Olivia strolling through the yard a few weeks before, and then counted five little kittens in tow (Odella, Oden, Owen, Onaedo, Oriel). No one that he knew of was feeding them. Our volunteers began a stake out to observe the habits of the cats but there was no sign of Olivia or her kittens for the first few days. Then one evening there were high winds and torrential rains which created fear that this feline family would not fair well. The next day our volunteers arrived on the property and there were no sightings of them, the following day Olivia appeared, soaking wet but very hungry. Eventually all of her kittens showed up to the feeding station, but they were dry and looked fine. What a relief. It took two days, but all the kittens and momma were rescued and brought into Pet Patrol care. They have thrived since then and are now ready to be adopted.

Personality:

Odella is a beautifully marked tabby with bright green eyes. She loves to explore and check out every nook and cranny of the house, and see what is new. She is quite confident and curious, but not forthcoming to people. She does like a good neck massage,petting and chin scratch. She has made great strides in her foster home and we are seeing her sweet and gentle side, playfulness and comfort level. She is the only kitten from her litter who has not been adopted, primarily because she is timid. Odella is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that is calm and fairly routine, that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

A young family was renting a house on a country property, that had a long laneway and a small colony of cats in the ancient barn. One day they discovered Paris running around their out building and they suspected she was dropped off. She was young, thin and in desperate need of some care. They worked hard at gaining her trust and making sure she was fed, and eventually she was welcomed into the house. Soon after another cat arrived, a handsome orange male (Palmer) and he too was rescued. Because neither cat was altered, and they were allowed outside, it resulted in several litters of kittens being  born all living in the barn. In the fall they were given notice by the landlord that the house was going to be torn down and that they would have to move. They realized that they had created a colony of cats (who will continue to breed indiscriminately) and were now going to be abandoned and left to starve. They reached out to a TNR program who began taking in the cats and kittens, and finding them new homes. Paris, Palmer and their six kittens, all orange and called the “pot of gold kittens”, were all brought into Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

Paige is more of a girly girl than her siblings. She likes to sit up, be cuddled and carried, and is of a gentle nature. She doesn’t like to rough play but likes to be the boss of everything. She is playful and active, and will run around with her siblings. Toys of all kinds keep her entertained and a cardboard box goes a long way. She is investigative and fun loving. Paige is ready to be adopted into her forever home, hopefully with a sibling/playmate. 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. 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 his 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:

Pet Patrol received an email from the local shelter. They had two little kittens there, one brown tabby and one orange boy (Peanut), who were very shy, and were not sure about people. They had been born on the street, and since they were a bit older, it was going to take time to socialize them and help them understand what people can do for them. Which is lots of love and comfort. They both initially went to another organization where it became apparent that the two kitten were leaning on each other quite a lot, and therefore did not need people. This is where the decision was made to separate the kittens, temporarily, to help them progress and make them family friendly kittens. It has worked and now peanut is ready to show his true loving and gentle personality to people.

Personality:

Peanut is a kitty that likes to be pet, doesn’t mind being picked up and is just a nice little guy. He is playful and active, likes to be up high and look out onto the room, watching the activities like the king of the castle. Initially he can be a bit reserved, but in a short period of time, with lots of cuddles and reassurance, he will become part of the household and family. Peanut has changed from a very timid and frightened little cat to a handsome teen who appreciates people and all they do for him. He has a deep and loud purr.

Simba and Smudge were living outdoors. It was in a small town, in a neighbourhood that had houses, decks, sheds and traffic. But it was also serene and comfortable. They were lucky because they were cared for by having a heated cat house , were fed daily and had people who looked out for them. But, they were still outside. One day their care giver called Pet Patrol and said she was going away for three months. Her nephew was going to be looking after the cats but she was worried that Simba might have ear mites. Could we have a look at him? Sure! He was fine, but in meeting him and his BFF Smudge, and seeing how friendly they are, we had difficulty thinking that they would again be put outside. Pet Patrol offered to take in both of these lovely cats and try to find them a good family home where they have a couch to lay on instead of a straw filled bed. After a little thought it was confirmed that Simba and Smudge were on their way to a new life of comfort.

Personality:

When they came to Pet Patrol is was immediately obvious that Smudge was incredibly attached to Simba. When put in the cage with him, she crawled right over to him and leaned over half of him. Simba took it all in stride. He loves her too. It would be terrible to separate the two of them. Both are gentle, loving and accepting cats. They are so friendly and affectionate, and love their people and laying in a nice sunbeam. Simba and Smudge are ready to be adopted together, into their forever home.

Simba took it all in stride. He loves her too. It would be terrible to separate the two of them. Both are gentle, loving and accepting cats. They are so friendly and affectionate, and love their people and laying in a nice sunbeam. Simba and Smudge are ready to be adopted together, into their forever home. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors

Eyes: Gold
Spayed & Vaccinated

Microochipped

✔ Quiet home
✔ Active home
✔ Adult home
✘ Children under 12
✘ Children over 12
✔ Other cats
✔ Dogs (passive)
✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

One of our volunteers was contacted by a woman who was desperate for help. She needed to rehome quite a few cats on her rural property and she was also a breeder of Siamese with several unaltered males. Her means of birth control was to keep the males and females in separate rooms which was not working as they would easily escape the room or allowed to roam around for a bit. You just have to put two and two together to get a lot of kittens born, Tamara and Tamu included. Suggestions were made regarding contacting a low cost spay/neuter clinic to have all the cats fixed but the timing in her life was not good. Her relationship was falling apart and she would be forced to move out on her own, and things were just becoming more complicated. Eventually she asked if Pet Patrol could take in the domestic short haired kittens, and she would look after fixing the Siamese cats. Tamara and her brother, Tamu, were the last kittens to be brought into our care.

Personality:

Tamara and Tamu are the sweetest and most loving kittens. They purr happily when you pet them, cuddle them and cradle them in your arms. They are very content to be with people and will curl up in your lap or crook of your arm at bedtime. Toys, of course, are a huge favourite with them, especially since they did not have many where they came from. They like anything that has a tinkle bell in it, noisily crinkles or rolls across the floor like a ping pong ball. They are curious and active, and love to chase each other in a fun game of Tag and Hide & Seek. After a good run around the house they will curl up together for a nap in a bundle of fur and purr. Tamara and Tamu are ready to be adopted into their forever home together. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors.

Neutered & Vaccinated

Microchipped

✔ Quiet home

✘ Children under 12

✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

Sometimes life takes a turn and we are faced with change that we did not plan on, or want. In the case of Twill and his kitty partner Lucy, they lived happily with a woman who adored them. She was born with physical challenges, but managed to raise children and have a nice home, and her cats were her constant companion. Fast forward to last fall and she had surgery due to cancer, then suddenly after Christmas she had to have surgery to have both of her legs amputated. How very sad. She would no longer be able to keep her home, her independence or her cats. Twill and Lucy were her babies and it was a very sad day for her to finally say, yes, they need another family as I can’t care for them any more. Her daughter took them into her home and would have kept them, however she had a dog that would have tried to hurt them if they were allowed to roam the house. Unfortunately all she had was a very small bedroom for them, which was proving to be stressful for the cats. They felt isolated and the daughter worried about them constantly. Soon after they came to Pet Patrol and are now ready for the next part of their life, another happy home to love them and keep them together.

Personality:

Twill is such a gentle and fun loving boy. He loves his people, will keep you company, follow you to see what you are doing and greet you at the door when you come home. He loves his BFF Lucy, and they are good company for each other as well. He has an endearing personality and Twill is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.
