Rescue:

Marvel came from a farm with six horses, fifteen cats, and five dogs. The elderly couple who owned the farm moved into a retirement home last year, and their sons became caretakers of the property and the animals. Since neither son lived there and were only up on weekends, they felt all the pets needed to find new homes. With the understanding of what each animal needed they found homes for everyone except for a few horses and four cats. Running out of connections they discovered Pet Patrol and contacted us to help with the felines, one of which was Marvel. This cute boy used to spend most of his time laying about on the front porch, in nice weather, with the other cats. His previous owner used to sit outside with him and another cat named Maggie, and they loved to lay on her lap. Marvel was not allowed in the house, but the cats did have the luxury of the three car garage, and often slept curled up in the horse sleigh that was stored in there.

Personality:

Marvel is a very friendly and affectionate cat. He is a lap cat and likes his ears rubbed and his chin scratched. He is easy to pick up and is learning about toys. He lived outside his whole life in the barn or garage, so he did not have any experience with being inside before he got to Pet Patrol, but he has adapted well. His favourite toys are the laser pen light and catnip mice. Even though Marvel is an easy going cat and came from an environment where there were other kitties, he seems to want to be top cat. He might fare better in an one cat environment. One thing we do know is that Marvel loves people and wants to live indoors, using his energy to shower his new family with love and affection. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

One of Pet Patrols former volunteers but still a faithful follower, had noticed a beautiful long haired black cat in her neighbourhood. He would come around occasionally, disappear for a few weeks and then show up again. As the weather became colder he sought out shelter and found it under the next door neighbour’s deck. It was quite deep and there must have been a window well under there for him to get away from the wind, but never the cold. He was fed regularly and had fresh water, but no one would take responsibility for him and offer a home. Primarily because this cat was wary of people. He had put his trust into people before and ended up on the street so why would he trust people again. Eventually named Gus, he started to peer into the patio doors of people’s comfy and warm homes, and our volunteer could not see him spend the entire winter outside. She bought a humane trap and it took no time at all to convince his handsome boy to come in from the cold. He is now a much happier boy.

Personality:

Gus has come a long way since first rescued. He was very uncertain of people and what our intentions were. But with time and patience, petting, brushing, gentle interactions and the luxuries of living indoors have transformed this boy. He is now more confident and appreciates being pet and cooed to. He is gentle and sweet, laid back and interested in his surroundings. Such a good cat, with more personality to shine through in his forever home. Gus is ready to be adopted into a gentle home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

We are thinking that pretty little Tavia was dumped outside a small village of only thirty inhabitants. It seems she had been a house cat and found herself suddenly alone and homeless, She did not know where to go or what to do. Tavia went from house to house begging for help. She was starving and she did not know how to mouse or find a place to stay warm. She was about to give up when she came upon a woman with a heart as big as hers. She gave Tavia a daily meal on her front porch but sadly already had three rescue cats in her small home and couldn’t take her in. The woman went door to door asking if anyone had lost the sweet kitty, without success, and then she knew Tavia no longer had a home. Through the grapevine she found Pet Patrol and soon Tavia was on her way to safety.

Personality:

Tavia is a sweet cat who just turned two. She loves being around people and is great with other cats. She likes to be scratched and pet and is perfectly content with being held. She is a calm kitty who is very well mannered. She likes to play with toys that drag or jingle and catnip is amazing. She is a kind soul and is looking for an adoptive parent to give her the same love that she gives. Someone who will develop a special bond that will be remembered for the rest of time. Tavia is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safety indoors.

Rescue:

Pretty little Mopsey was found hanging around someone’s garage, on the edge of town in an old subdivision. The owners of the property had no idea where she came from. When found she was very, very cold, thin, scruffy and malnourished. Even though her medium long hair made her look like she had good weight on her, underneath she was just skin and bones. When her rescuer brushed her out she had a huge pile of dry and matted hair afterwards. Mopsey had been holding on for dear life in regards to her health while she was on the streets, and soon after coming into care she took very ill. She became dehydrated and had to get medical care to bring her health back up. At the time the vet only gave her a 50-50 chance. With the excellent care of her rescuer, she regained her health and has thrived ever since. This just shows how hard it is for these wee cats to live on the street. She’s done well in her rescue home with the friendly dogs and the other rescue cats.

Personality:

Mopsey is a very friendly and affectionate cat. She shows the love every single day. She is so happy to be rescued and looked after and have a carefree life. She’s very appreciative, playful and active in her rescue home. She’s good company with the other cats, the foster caregivers, and has made her self very much at home. She is content to be indoors and living the good life. This pretty little cat is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely in doors.

Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a message from a university student, who helps to manage a small apartment building. She noticed a mother cat and her kittens playing in the bushes behind the parking lot. It was a fairly safe place because it was away from the road, behind the building and there was a lawn between them and the driveway. But that would only last until the kittens got older and started to explore. Being proactive the student knew that for their safety and survival this feline family needed to be rescued. They borrowed two traps from Pet Patrol to double their chances of rescuing them. Success. Once in her care they were quickly adopted by people she knew would have them spayed/neutered and kept indoors, but little Georgie was on his own. She continued to care for him, and tried to find a home for him as well, but no luck and soon he came into Pet Patrol care. At the time of this writing, the mother can had disappeared, but the word has been put out for neighbours and other tenants to keep an eye out for her. She needs to be rescued as well.

Personality:

Georgie is shy and it can take some time to earn his trust, but once you do he’s the biggest love bug. He likes to follow his foster mom around the house chirping for attention. As soon as she sits down anywhere he’s begging to sit in her lap and will sleep there contently forever. He also loves to cuddle at night and will let you tuck him under the covers with you or might decide to knead your back like a little massage. His super soft fluffy fur makes him the perfect teddy bear! Although sweet, he can also get into mischief and loves to play, especially with his foster brother. Georgie would do well with another cat, or even a respectful dog, to play with and to show him that his new parents are worth his trust. This kitty is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Della is a beautiful Torti female with emerald green eyes, who showed up at a country property during the winter time. It was brutally cold outside, and the wind just whipped off of the open fields, there was little shelter for her, but she found a spot int their shed. The couple living on the property set up a heat lamp for her, cozy bed, food and water and checked on her daily. Della at the time kept her distance. In the spring she gave birth to three kittens but only one survived, Davina. The cats stayed together and on the property after that. In the fall Della, still not spayed gave birth to six kittens. To keep them safe the couple moved them inside to their work shop so that they could be socialized and they all thrived. They were able to find homes for three of the kittens and called on Pet Patrol to help with the rest. All the cats are now spayed or neutered and ready for adoption.

Personality:

Della is a petty tortoiseshell cat who will greet you with her tail up, head tilted to bunt your hand and looking for pets. She is sweet and gentle, playful but also laid back and comfortable in her surroundings. She likes to bask in the sunbeam and roll around on the floor with her catnip toy, and is ready to cuddle with someone. Della is quite attached to her daughter Davina, and they can often be found cuddling and grooming each other. It would be important that they stay together. Della is ready to be adopted into her forever home with Davina. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors.

Rescue:

Davina is a beautiful Calico Girl with emerald green eyes, who was born on a country property during the spring time. Her mother, Della, showed up on the property the winter before when it was brutally cold outside, and the wind just whipped off the open fields, there was little shelter for her, but she found a spot in their shed. The couple living on the property set up a heat lamp for her, cozy bed, food and water and checked on her daily. Della at the time, kept her distance. In the spring, and being an unaltered female, she naturally became pregnant and gave birth to three kittens but only one kitten survived, Davina. Neither of the cats left the property after that, and they continued to call the shed a home. In the fall Della gave birth to six kittens, and wanting to keep them safe, the couple moved them into their shop. They were able to find homes for three of the kittens, and Pet Patrol helped with the rest. All the cats are now spayed or neutered and ready for adoption.

Personality:

Davina is a true calico.as there are no stripes in the orange and black patches on their fur, and she is gorgeous. It does take time for her to feel comfortable when her environment changes and she will seek out the companionship of her mother Della. But she is out and about and playful, gentle and sweet natured. She can be held in your arms, cradled like a baby which is adorable. Davina is quite attached to her mother Della, and they can often be found cuddling and grooming each other, and it would be important that they stay together. Davina is ready to be adopted into her forever home with Della. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors.

Rescue:

While sitting in the office at the Pet Patrol sanctuary, one of our volunteers noticed a cat, nonchalantly walking past the window. He was thin but the most outstanding thing about him was his tail, or lack thereof. It was a bloody stump. The cat stopped and looked at our volunteer and held his ground when she opened the window and put out a plate of canned food. He then turned and walked away. Hmmm. Over the next few months he was approached, but ran away, noticed laying Spinx like in the long grass, and strolling across the back lawn. Several attempts to rescue him by using a humane trap failed and we thought we would never be able to help him. Late one evening someone noticed him going under the garden shed. There was no real shelter under there and it was obvious that this dear boy was not seeking to over winter in the nearby barn. He had nowhere to go. The humane trap was set up once more, alongside the shed and finally on the second night he was rescued. The very next morning he was taken into the vet clinic and several inches amputated off of his tail, he was neutered and any injuries attended to. His recovery was successful.

Personality:

It took a while to gain Doc’s trust, as he was outside for quite a while, but now he is out and about in the sanctuary. He was quite happy to see other cats in our care and integrated in without any issue. Doc has become quite an affectionate lap cat at his foster home. He loves to stretch out next to (or on top of) his foster dad while purring loudly, and will even greet his people at the door. He loves to play with all sorts of toys, and can often be found chasing stuffed mice or toy springs around the house. Now that he’s learned about all the perks of being an indoor cat, he’s shown zero interest in going back outside. Doc is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Pet Patrol had become aware of a small colony of cats that were living in the center of a small town. They were being fed daily, had fresh water and a place to sleep, unlike some street cats, but they did not have an owner and were not spayed or neutered. Patsy was part of that colony and she would sleep inside the big shed/small barn structure, and then play outside during the day. There were a few small businesses in this building, and the people there were respectful of the cats, and many of them were picked up and cuddled and became very friendly and affectionate with their caregivers. One man took on the task to get some of the cats altered at the low cost spay neuter clinic in the city, and someone else provided food. One day a visiting relative called Pet Patrol and said she wanted to help get some of the cats fixed and since they were now friendly could we take them into our care. It all worked out well, and Patsy, Harrison and Freda are thriving in the sanctuary.

Personality:

Patsy first hissed at her caregiver at Pet Patrol, only because she did not know them and was not sure why she was there. She had just returned from the vet clinic and had been taken in there first thing in the morning, right from his outdoor home, and then arrived afterwards at the sanctuary. What is this place she must have wondered. But immediately upon petting her, she flopped over and showed her belly and she was excited to have her ear rubbed and be petted from head to tail. She has integrated in with the other cats very well, and made herself at home. She likes to gaze out the window and see the world outside, but is content stay put inside. Patsy is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Catie is a kitty that was living in a very small village just minutes from the city limits. She made her rounds to the houses and some fed her, and she found shelter in other areas, but no one really knew where she came from and no one took her into their care. Catie was shy and unsure of people, but one man was able to pet her. He has seen her many times walking through his yard, across his patio and down his drive doing her rounds of the neighbourhood. He realized that Catie was incredibly thin and put some food out for her, then one day she appeared to be limping. Feeling that she needed help, he called around to see if anyone would help, and eventually found Pet Patrol. Once in our care, and after a vet examination it was felt that she has injured a tendon in her back left leg, and there was little to do to help that but time. Catie still has a bit of a limp but that doesn’t stop her from doing the stairs, jumping up on the climber and running around in play with the other cats.

Personality:

She has come around nicely from a timid and unsure cat, to one that rubs up against your legs, purrs deeply and likes to be pet. She is still guarded with that leg, but does like a good head and chin scratch and enjoys the attention of people. Catie is great with the other cats and will stand side by side with them, sharing the food dish and likes to have a cuddle with them as well. Catie is ready to be adopted into a gentle and serene home, hopefully with a kind companion kitty. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors
