Rescue:

The mama cat, Sprinkles, was living on a farm, and naturally because she was not spayed, found herself in the family way. She is as sweet as candy, and the family was concerned for her and the kittens (Smores, Skor, Snickers and Skittles) when they found her nest in the hayloft. They were promptly brought into the house so that they would be safe, clean and not in fear of becoming prey or ill. They were raised until they were about six weeks old and then a decision needed to be made as to what to do with them. Not wanting to put them back in with the horses and cows in the big grey barn, they contacted a Pet Patrol volunteer and asked if she could help these lovely champagne coloured kittens find homes. To have a complete litter and mother cat of all one colour is rare, and even more so with orange and champagne tabbies. To have them medium long haired as well is an added bonus. All have thrived and are now ready to find families that will love them and care for them deeply.

Personality:

Skittles is pretty little cat, who, like all kittens likes to run and play, tumble and roll with her siblings and is all about fun. She is gentle and sweet natured, can be picked up and carried around and cradled in your arms. In all cases we like to see kittens have playmates or siblings in their new homes, so that they are never alone and always have someone to cuddle up with. Skittles and Skor very bonded and are ready to be adopted into their forever home together. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors.

Sophia

Colour: Black & White
Eyes: Gold
Spayed & Vaccinated

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

Trystan (Kitten)

MALE

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.

Twill

MALE
Born: April 8, 2007

Eyes: Green

✔ Quiet home

✔ 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.

Twinkle (Kitten)

✔ Indoors only

Rescue:

Twinkle 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 Tiki 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:

Twinkle 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. Twinkle is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors

Rescue:

Verre is the French word for glass, and that is what this little kitten was running into, in total fear, when she was rescued.  She was first noticed by a staff member of the grocery store, as they looked through the full glass window towards the parking lot of the plaza.  This little 1.5 lb. kitten was totally frantic and running around very fast.  She was panicked. She didn’t know what was safe.  The area was concrete and asphalt, wide open with cars, trucks, people and shopping carts moving about.  She ran to the next store and was running head first into their glass doors in an effort to escape.  The staff summoned the pet food store in the same row of shops and a staff member came to help. Verre was ahead of them all, ran down the sidewalk and took a hard right at the end of the building, right underneath the dumpster.  It is dirty, smelly, gooey and terribly germy under there, but the three staff members somehow managed to bring her out, and into their care.  A call came to Pet Patrol and this little one was now in secure hands and she was very appreciative.

Personality:

This little kitten was on her own when rescued.  The search for siblings or a mother cat was unsuccessful.  She may have come from the field behind the store, or she may have been up in the engine of a car or truck.  We will never know.  But Verre has proven to be a lovely little kitten.  Happy go lucky, friendly, loves a good cuddle and ear rub, and looks at her people with complete appreciation and gratitude. She is sweet and gentle, liked toys and scampering around with the other foster cats.  She is precious.  Verre is ready to be adopted into her forever home.  One that will welcome her into the family and keep her
