Rescue:

Scotch was born on a well kept horse farm where there are several litters found every year. The odd stray will find their way to this property and give birth to their kittens in the hay loft. Once the kittens were old enough their mothers would take them out hunting in the fields, and sometimes the kittens would not return. They are subject to being prey when roaming through unprotected areas. Scotch and a few of his litter mates were the lucky ones as they stuck close to the barn. The owners fed and watered the cats daily which kept these kittens from wandering, but also encouraged more breeding. They realized they had to start spaying and neutering the cats, and not just the males, rehoming some of the cats and give the kittens a better life. The couple searched for help to start getting their adults fixed at a reasonable rate, and a plan was put into place to have the kittens rehomed. Scotch came into Pet Patrol care, and although the people wanted to keep him because he is so sweet, they knew they couldn’t keep them all.

Personality:

Scotch loves people. He is very snuggly and affectionate, loves his people and is gentle and kind hearted. He doesn’t mind other cats or dogs, but people are his main attraction. He will greet you at the door, climb up into your lap and be cradled in your arms. He is a playful cat, preferring the wand toys with feathers or tinsel at the end. He likes balls and catnip mice, crinkly things and cardboard boxes. He is a joy to take care of and very good company. Scotch 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:

Sophia and her sister Stella were born to a mother cat who lived outdoors. She was different from the rest of the strays because she was friendly. She seemed comfortable outside so her rescuers fed her and allowed her to come and go. As would happen she became pregnant as she was not spayed, and that is when she was brought indoors so she could have her kittens in a safe environment. The entire feline family came to Pet Patrol and Stella and Sophia were adopted into a very loving home. The woman had no children and these girls were her kids. She loved them dearly, but life is not fair sometimes and unfortunately the woman became ill. Testing revealed that she had cancer. Throughout her treatments there was always hope that she would go into remission and continue to live a full life especially with her beloved cats. But it was not to be. She passed not knowing who was going to care for her cats as no one stepped forward to give them a forever home. Her friend who was her support during this time took them in but could not keep them, and both girls are now in a temporary foster home.

Personality:

Sophia and her sister Stella are very sweet and friendly cats. They are extremely playful and love to get new toys. Sophia’s favourite is a grey mouse that she bats around for hours and even fetches when you throw it. She is very social and loves to cuddle and receive attention from any human friend. Her favourite place to sit is on your lap when you are reading or watching TV in the evenings. She was a wonderful companion for her previous owner. Sophia and Stella are quite attached to each other, and can often be found grooming each other, curled up in puddle of purrs and fur and actively play games together. Sophia is ready to be adopted with her sister Stella, into their forever home. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors.

Tinkerbell (Kitten)

FEMALE
Born: September 22, 2018
Colour: Calico
Eyes: Gold
Spayed & Vaccinated

Microchipped

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

Rescue:

Tinkerbell was born in a home after her mother, who was feral, was rescued. This woman has rescued cats for many years and helped them along the way by finding them better lives in homes and with families. At this time she was working with a TNR program to help place some of the cats she could not, and also facing open heart surgery within a few weeks. When she brought in the mother cat she was heavily pregnant and had the kittens (Tinkerbell being one of them) within a few days, so it is very fortunate that they did not have to endure the changing autumn weather, rain and cold winds. Their life probably would have started out under a deck or shed, with only dry leaves and dirt for bedding, but now they had a nice clean room, a lot of soft blankets and plenty of food. She could tell the mother cat was grateful that this was all available, it’s like going from being homeless to living at the Ritz. The woman continues to work with the mother cat to socialize her and hopefully find a new home for her.

Personality:

Tinkerbell is a very sweet little kitten who is gentle and huggable. She is good with other kittens and cats, and likes her toys as well. She will bat a ball across the floor and chase after it, tail high and ears back with a kitty smile on her face. She is very fun loving and received a lot of play action and at times comfort from other foster kittens. Tinkerbell is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors

Trystan (Kitten)

MALE
Born: May 8, 2018
Colour: Black & White

Microchipped

✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

There is a small village close to the city that has been able to succeed and become famous to tourists for it’s old world charm, interesting shops and local culture. There is also a big stray cat population. Pet Patrol does it’s best to answer the calls about rescuing these cats, but many of them are feral and all calls are about moms and kittens. They are found under decks and sheds, in abandoned garages and even up in the rafters of a smokehouse. It’s pretty incredible where they find safety for their little families. For Trystan and his siblings (Boo, Tobias, Titan and Braveheart) they were born in the backyard of a private home. There was a shed, deck and lumber piled up, all the places that a mother cat would seek out to shelter her kittens. The woman living there began feeding them, and with the help of Pet Patrol was able to rescue them and bring them into her home. She spent a lot of time working with the kittens, socializing them, playing with them and making sure they had everything they needed. The mother cat was rescued as well, spayed and vaccinated, but proved to be feral. She was released back to the woman’s backyard where food and shelter is provided.

Personality:

Trystan is a little more reserved than the others but once comfortable he’ll be right in the middle of the action. If picked up he will soak up all the cuddles you have to offer. He prefers a quieter environment with fewer people and less action (my sense is that in a quieter house with another cat he would do great, probably not good with dogs or small, busy, loud children). Like all kittens he is happiest playing with crinkle balls, wand toys with his caregiver and a cardboard box can go a long way. Trystan is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Tucker

MALE
Born: November 2016
Colour: Brown Tabby & White
Eyes: Gold
Neutered & Vaccinated

Microchipped

✔ Quiet home

✘ Children under 12
✘ Children over 12
✔ Other cats
?  Dogs (passive)
✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

Pet Patrol receive this message from Tucker’s rescuer: We live on a farm, with a long gravel laneway, and we have cats dumped off regularly. The cars pull up at all hours of the night, we hear it stop, a car door slams and next thing we know there is a new, frightened, cat on the property. This boy arrived in our barn and has been hanging around since late summer. We have been feeding him and earning his trust . He is not happy with other cats around him right now, probably because he is not neutered yet. We would like him to have a family of his own. We are worried about him as well because winter is coming. He can live in the barn, but that is really not a great place for him. Tucker soon came into Pet Patrol care and has done very well since then. He is living with the other cats in the sanctuary and seems to get along with everyone.

Personality:

Tucker is a nice husky boy who is friendly and sweet. He is unsure of new environments to start with, but soon shows you his friendly and affectionate side. He loves to be pet and have a nice chin scratch, he will roll over and show his belly for you, but like most cats that is not necessarily an invitation to touch. He is playful and fun loving and will chase down that darn red dot until it completely disappears under the dresser. Then he will sit and wait for it until he is bored, and then moves onto something else. He is a happy cat when the sun streams though the window, and doesn’t seem to miss the outdoors at all. Tucker 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:

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.
