Rescue:

Izzy had lived with the same family since she was a tiny kitten. She did’t know any other life. It was a mother and her teenage son, who would soon be heading off to university, they didn’t have a lot of money and sometimes it was difficult to make ends meet. Izzy had never been to the vet though, and she was not spayed. With each time she went into heat, she became more excitable and she would howl louder and longer. Attempts were made to calm her (putting her in the bathroom and blocking out all light over night, feeding her yogurt) but nothing seemed to help much. Eventually she was going into heat every two to three weeks, and not only were they losing sleep, but so were the neighbours around her in the thin walled apartment building. Izzy was becoming a difficult cat to live with, but at no fault of her own. All they needed to do was get her spayed, but even the price at the low cost spay neuter clinic was too much for her owner  to afford. Izzy was then brought into Pet Patrol care where she was spayed a short time later.

Personality:

Izzy was really not happy about the decisions that her people had made for her. They took her from her home, all that is familiar. She was quite sad in the beginning. But soon, as she got to know her caregivers she showed how affectionate she can be. She is playful and likes to chase after balls, roll around with catnip toys and loves the scratching pad. When relaxed at home she prefers the back of the couch for observing what is going on, or looking out the window to monitor the neighbourhood. She is definitely a lap cat and likes a good scratch around her ears and under her chin. Izzy is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Jamie

✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

Jamie and his brothers, J.J. and Jonas, were part of a colony that was growing on a nice rural property, where the people fed any cats that showed up. It is assumed that these newer cats are mainly drop-offs and refugees from a barn across the road. Recently that neighbouring farm has been sold, and the barn was torn down and there was nowhere else for the many different coloured kitties to go. Almost all of them are friendly and will wind around your legs, want to be petted and will wait for the people to come outside by sitting on the house window sills looking inside. The couple wanted to keep some of the cats, and agreed to keep any that were unadoptable, but mainly they just wanted to keep the feline population under control through spaying and neutering. Volunteers ventured out and were impressed with the care the cats received and their gentle natures. Soon many of them were brought into Pet Patrol care and they are now ready to find their forever homes.

Personality:

Jamie 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:

Pretty little Jelly Bean was owned by a young woman who was trying to raise two children on her own. Unable to keep her apartment, she moved in with a friend and things were going ok for a while. Unfortunately Jelly Bean was not spayed and she continually was in heat and trying to get outside to meet a nice Tom Cat. She succeeded and produced at least one litter, and once weaned the kittens were given away. Unable to live independently meant that the woman did not have funds to properly take care of this little black cat by having her spayed, and so Jelly Bean was destined to continue to contribute to the over population of cats. As time went on the relationship between the two friends became strained and the woman with her children, moved out of town to be closer to family. Jelly Bean was homeless. The roommate did not want her and had threatened to put her out on the street. Finally a friend of a friend found one of Pet Patrol’s volunteers who asked if we could take in Jelly Bean, have her spayed and vaccinated and find her a forever home. She is now in our care, ready for adoption.

Personality:

Jelly Bean is a happy go lucky cat who is great with children and other gentle pets. She is fun loving, interested in exploring toys and cat climbers, and makes herself comfortable in new environments. She will greet you at the door and is in tune with your routine and is good company. Now spayed she is calm, cool and collected, but also her sweet personality shines through. She is a very nice cat who is easy to pick up, cuddle and she will readily come when called, especially for her favourite canned food or lap time. Jelly Bean 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 a family that needed to reduce the number of cats they had in their home. They had their regular resident cats, and then they had a mother cat who kept sneaking out of the house and getting pregnant. Not realizing that she could be spayed successfully early in the gestation period, they continually allowed her to have her litters. She is now spayed (they kept her in the house after the last litter was weaned) and all the kittens had found homes except for Kimmie, Kiwi and Keebler. Now almost a year old, these kitties needed a permanent home as the family feared they too would go into heat and reproduce. When they first arrived at the sanctuary they were very unsure what to expect and were a little grumpy about it, but soon they settled in and did very well with the other cats. Within days they received their vaccination and were spayed or neutered and are now ready to find a family.

Personality:

Kimmie is a very loving and affectionate cat who is good with new people, children and even passive dogs. She is loving and sweet and very easy to pick up and cuddle. She likes to follow you around and see what you are doing, and a lap with out a cat on it is her destiny. She adores her people. Playful as well, she is interested in anything new, and will have fun with just about anything. Being the neighbourhood watch cat, she likes to know what is happening on the other side of the window, watches the birds and squirrels and even the traffic is of interest. Kimmie is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Kylie

Rescue:

A friend, of a friend, of a friend, that is sometimes the way people connect. For Kylie and her siblings, five in total, they were born in a barn. The owner of the property loves cats and is trying to keep the population under control with having the cats spayed or neutered. But there will always be stray cats, dumped cats or ferals showing up at country properties, often after wandering great distances to find food. For Kylie and her little feline family, their mother was feral and these kittens, the last to be rescued, were timid. The farm owner is kind, and made sure the kittens were handled from an early age so that they would be able to be adopted out at some point. She discovered Pet Patrol through a grapevine of people and our volunteer went out to see the kittens. The barn was clean and tidy and the kittens had food, fresh water and shelter. However, not being fixed, they would have started to reproduce within a few months, and with most of the six kittens being female, well, the math is frightening. Cats can have up to three litters, of possibly six kittens each, every year. Spaying or neutering our pets and those that are homeless, is essential.

Personality:

Kylie is a sweet, gentle and playful cat. She has had great fun in the sanctuary with new toys, cat climbers and tunnels to run through. She was happy to be kept with her siblings, and they were usually found rolling around wrestling, chasing or just curled up cuddling and grooming. You would never have known that they lived in a barn, they are such good little cats and we are sure they don’t miss the cows and chickens. Kylie is easy to pick up and cuddle, she will lay on your lap, purrs loudly and loves a good pet and massage. A very nice cat. Kylie is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Sometimes life takes a turn and we are faced with change that we did not plan on, or want. In the case of Lucy and her kitty partner Twill, 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. Lucy and Twill 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:

Lucy is an orange tabby female which is rare, and she has a loving and cuddly nature to her. If you sit, she sits with you. If you lay on the couch, she lays with you, and at bedtime she will keep you warm. Such a snugly cat. There is no doubt that Lucy is a big girl, but she gets around fine and likes to play gently. She is a real charmer. She and Twill are best buddies and it would be nice for them to be kept together. She is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her 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 the 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:

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:

Pet Patrol received a phone call from a man who runs his own business on the edge of the city. There are a lot of trucks coming and going, backing up and turning around in the lot behind his building. He was surprised one day, while looking out his shop door, and saw a young cat walk by. It wasn’t very common that he would see stray cats around, but they usually appeared one day and gone the next. He did take note though, that this particular little brown tabby, was sticking around longer than the others. A day turned into weeks. He started putting out food and water for her, and then one day she appeared from under a storage bin near the neighbouring business. Soon afterwards there were four little kittens (Nina being one of them) following her to the food dish. The mother cat, Nadia, was friendly and sweet, and her little ones were a little more shy but it was obvious that they had been handled by people before. We have to surmise that Nadia and her kittens were abandoned in this industrial area. How sad. Within a few days Nadia and three of her kittens came into Pet Patrol care, and the fourth baby was finally rescued two days after that. They are all now in Pet Patrol care, sweet, friendly and ready for their new people.

Personality:

Nina is a pretty little torti cat who, like her siblings, loves to play, investigate and sometimes her curiosity surprises her. She can be found playing Tag, Indy 500 through the sanctuary and Hide and Seek with her siblings, or other foster kitties. A cardboard box with a few Peek A Boo holes in it creates a lot of fun. Balls that bounce and roll are a favorite. Nina is gentle and sweet, and is ready to be adopted, hopefully with a playmate. She is looking for a home that will welcome her into the family and keep her 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, Odin, 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.

Personality:

Odin and his brother Owen are particularly attached to each other. They can be found curled up together sleeping or grooming each other or just flopped beside each other watching the birds outside. They are quite active and like playing games of chase and they are part of the WWF (World Wrestling Felines). They like their people as well, can be picked up and cuddled and although a bit timid to start with, they have adjusted to their new surroundings very well. Both kittens would love to be adopted together into an adult home. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors.

Personality:

Oriel is always on the lookout for a new toy she can play with. She favours a battery powered roller ball that spins under a mat, laser pointer, crinkle balls and is a huge fan of zip ties. She will jump around with gusto when playing. She is great with other cats, wants to be affectionate with them and will cry out if she does not see them. She is generally a quiet cat unless she wants your attention or hears the treat bag. She likes her people too and has become more comfortable around them, preferring to cuddle at bedtime or when you are on her level. Oriel is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

When a neighbour, who is initially a dog lover and owns three of her own, found Russy he was
very dirty and sad looking. He was hiding under a parked car in a driveway and came out to her when she knelt down and talked to him. He was shy but obviously wanting help. He had two spots on his neck that were the size of loonies, one either side of his throat, where the hair was gone and the skin exposed. Very strange. His left eye was watery and she thought that maybe he had been attacked. She brought him into her home, but knew she couldn’t keep him permanently, and then onto the vet. It was revealed that his left eye opening was actually smaller than the right, a birth defect, but badly infected. The bald spots over time became larger, then the hair grew back in after receiving proper nutrition. From there Russy came into Pet Patrol care where he relishes the attention, climate controlled home, lots of food and fresh water, and toys! He went from a very frightened and lost cat, to one that blossomed into a very handsome and gentle cat. Where he originally came from is unknown.

Personality:

Russy is a solidly built cat, who weighs more than he looks because of muscle. It has been a pleasure to watch him become a happy and healthy boy and is showing us his playful, carefree side. He loves the toys given to him and is quite excited about treat time in the evening. He has done well with integrating in with the other foster cats, and is gentle and sweet. Russy doesn’t mind being picked up and cuddled, he will lay on the couch beside you and ask for petting too. Russy is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.
