Rescue:

Shadow was part of a small colony of cats that came into Pet Patrol care all at once. A mother cat, Ezra, came with a lot of offspring, all of the same colour. And then there was Shadow. How did he fit in, he is completely opposite to them but all . But they are all friendly, affectionate, and sweet natured. They all came from a farm property that is way off the road. A young family was renting the house and the children had discovered Ezra in the hayloft with her litter of kittens. They socialized them and as the kittens grew bigger they started following the children into the house. Now they were indoor / outdoor cats. In one way that was nice for them because they didn’t have to worry about cold nights, rainy days or the hot sun. But being allowed outside created other problems, like becoming prey to coyote and fox. There were a few harrowing experiences for them. Having a lot of pets of their own, and now another litter of kittens born to the now grown daughters was becoming unmanageable for a family with little money. They eventually found Pet Patrol and knowing of the situation they were all brought into our care. They have proven to be very nice kitties that deserve to have a forever home.

Personality:

Shadow is such a nice boy. He has had a rough life so far, and wasn’t sure what to expect when he came to the sanctuary. He was thin, his fur was very thin and there were spots where he was absolutely bald. But he loved to be pet and have a good scratch under the chin, he was kind and he was gentle. Over time, once integrated into the sanctuary he became more playful and fun loving. The scratching post was a favorite, and so is the tall kitty climber. Shadow is loving the indoor life. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received this email from a concerned lady: “Hello. I am wondering if you can provide me with some advice. Our office has a landscaped area in the front of our building and a few weeks ago, we discovered a cat living there, under a large cement slab. We have provided a bit of shelter (which she ignored) and some food/water since we found out about her. She is a petite little calico and roams around the parking lots here and near by (there are apartment buildings behind us) but always returns to the den under the slab. Apparently, in the last few weeks, she has given birth (unsure as to how many kittens). I don’t want to scare her off, or do anything that might jeopardize the health of the mom or babies, but I definitely do not want to leave this little family there, exposed to the elements. I know that there are TNR programs, but not sure how to find them and to help this cat and her kittens. I am happy to keep feeding her in the meantime. Any advice and help would be welcome.” Shortly thereafter, with a small team of volunteers, Tessa and her five babies (Tara being one of them) were brought into Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

Tara is a nice little kitten who was not sure of people in the beginning. Because her mother was not social at the time, she was taught to be fearful of them. But with time and patience she has come around quickly and is now very happy to be picked up and cradled in your arms, carried and enjoy playtime with her people. She loves toys of all kinds and is quite curious of anything new. She needs to figure it out it seems. Tara is quite attached to her siblings and it would be nice for her to be in her new home with a playmate. She is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Tigg

MALE
Born: February 2010
Colour: Orange Tabby
Eyes: Green
Neutered & Vaccinated

Microchipped

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

Rescue:

Tigg was the pet of a family that had three small boys and a mom and dad. He liked his family and all seemed pretty nice. He was an indoor cat and was well looked after. But over time the mom and dad grew apart, they argued, yelled, the kids were upset, and they yelled and things became volatile. Tigg wanted out of the house, he was not happy, and we are not sure if he started to sneak out, or if he was allowed out. But Tigg, not being street smart, went missing. They really were concerned about him and started searching the streets. They found him a few days later, in terrible shape. It appears that he was hit by a car, hit or landed on his head and his injuries were severe. He received emergency care and he pulled though, and the family worked together to bring him back to good health. Whew! But the family situation did not heal, and just this year they divorced. Tigg was out of a home. A nice neighbour lady offered to help by taking him to the local shelter, but they would not take him because they were full. Knowing about Pet Patrol the woman sent a message to one of our volunteers and this nice boy was brought into our care.

Personality:

By all accounts Tigg has been described as a very nice cat, who is not invasive, but makes himself known. He is good company, likes to jump up on the couch to watch a good movie with you and is quite the cuddler. Although he is considered ‘retired’ at his age, he is still quite active and playful, preferring gentle play with toys as opposed to the Indy 500 race or scaling cat climbers in a single bound. Tigg is looking for a calm and predictable life, where he will be respected, loved and pampered. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Twill

MALE
Born: April 8, 2007

✔ Quiet home
✔ Active home
✔ Adult home
✘ Children under 12
✔ Children over 12
✔ Other cats
?  Dogs (passive)
✔ 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 her 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.
