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 one of the now grown daughters was becoming unmanageable for a family with little money. They eventually found Pet Patrol and knowing their situation the cats 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.

Tiki (Kitten)

FEMALE
Born: May 1, 2017
Colour: Orange & White
Eyes: Gold
Spayed & Vaccinated

Microchipped

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

Rescue:

Tiki and her siblings were found one by one in a small village not far off the highway. This little one was heard screaming for help in the backyard of a woman, who regularly feeds the stray cats in her area. She was hungry, scared and very lonely. She quickly took the kitten inside and next day contacted Pet Patrol to whom she had taken rescued cats  before. The woman suspected there would be other kittens and she was right. Twyla was found next, under the neigbour’s car, soaking wet from the rain and sitting in a puddle. Within a day Twinkle and Tickle were found, one right after the other, and again they were brought into Pet Patrol care. It is always best for little kittens to have a mother cat with them, as they feel vulnerable and uncertain as to who we are. But it didn’t take them long to feel comfortable with people, be able to be picked up and cuddled. It is suspected that they came from a rented home not more than two properties away from where they were found. There were a lot of pets in and out of the house and none were spayed or neutered, they breed continually and the cats were put outside once old enough to eat on their own. When the kittens were taken in, no one came looking for them. Quite sad.

Personality:

Tiki and her sisters are full of fun, run and love to lay in the sun. They are easy to pick up and cuddle, like to lay on your lap and will stretch out on the bed with you during the night. They are interested in all you do and will follow you around the house. Being active kittens they like to play team sports such as soccer with a crinkle ball, Indy 500 and Catch the toy mouse. It is preferable that they’re adopted with a sibling or will have a participating playmate in their new home. Tiki 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
Eyes: Gold
Neutered & Vaccinated

Microchipped

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

Twill

MALE
Born: April 8, 2007
Colour: Brown Tabby
Eyes: Green
Neutered & Vaccinated

Microchipped

✔ Quiet 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.

Zaine (Kitten)

Rescue:

One of the Pet Patrol volunteers who organizes the TN program received an email from a lady who they had helped in the past. This situation was a colony of barn cats that she was quite concerned about, and they belonged to her neighbor. It seems that they were quite overpopulated with cats and kittens, some healthy and some not. The next day our volunteer contacted the neighbor and then drove up to her farm to assess the colony and see where she could help. When she arrived there were a number of cats and kittens running around the barn, some with eye infections, some with upper respiratory. It was a mixed livestock farm and the cats lived mainly in the hay loft. They were fed on a daily basis, mostly table scraps, but there was no fresh water or proper cat food provided. The neighbor was very reluctant to give away any of the cats at first, and it took a while to convinced her that they needed medical attention. She understandably was worried about them, but knew that she could not financially afford to help them. Zaine was one of the first to come into our care.

Personality:

Zaine has been described as a monkey in a catsuit. He is a fun loving, happy go lucky, and adventurous and curious cat that has no fear. He is sweet and gentle, cuddly and loves his people. Playful is his middle name for sure. His rescuer said he made her laugh on a daily basis. Zaine is looking for an active home that will help him burn off his energy and allow him to be the energized little cat that he is. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.
