Rescue:

Brie and her sister Brandie were living amongst a lot of other cats in a crowded apartment. The owner could no longer take care of them and wanted to just let them outside to fend for themselves. Problem is, it is illegal to abandon an animal and cats cannot survive outside without daily feeding and proper shelter. It is unfair to the house cat to expect them to go from a climate controlled environment with food, water and comfort and expect them to manage homelessness with success. As the story unfolded we learned that the owner was being evicted and all the other pets had to be rehomed as well. None had ever been to a vet and so Brie and Brandie were not spayed or vaccinated. Soon after coming into our care we discovered that these girls were sweet and friendly and were enjoying their new life of leisure. They have since been spayed, vaccinated and micro chipped.

Personality:
Brie is a such nice little cat. She is friendly and affectionate, loves her people and loves her sister Brandie as well. They do seek each other out for cuddles and play and it is delightful to watch them interact with each other. It took a little longer for Brie to adjust to her new environment, about a week, but then she just blossomed. During that time Brandie was not too far away and curled up with her all the time. Brie and Brandie are ready to be adopted into their forever home. One that will welcome them into their family and keep them safely indoors

Rescue:

Jasmine’s story told by her rescuer: I noticed Jasmine underneath a trailer on a cold fall night. She was eating some low grade food that a kind man sets out for the strays and skunks. She was very skittish and as soon as my headlights shone on her she disappeared. I set up another feeding station in the nearby horse shelter, in hopes she would come over there, and I could easily monitor her. I lured her with better quality food, water and tempting canned food and she arrived a few days later. Humane traps were set up to rescue her but this pretty girl was having none of it, she would avoid the trap and the food, leaving herself hungry, so eventually the traps were taken away. By spring Jasmine was pregnant and one day as I watched her trot over to an empty house across the road, I took note that her belly was smaller meaning she had given birth to her kittens. Now the search was on. Luckily the owner of the house agreed to allow me to look around the property, and there I found Jasmine with her kittens under the back porch. Jasmine was lured into an open dog cage and the kittens were easily picked up and brought into safety as well.

Personality:

Jasmine has settled into life in the sanctuary very well. She is gentle and sweet, but also very intelligent and can stand her ground. She is good with other cats, and great with people. Such a nice cat. Life was incredibly serious before and Jasmine couldn’t understand what toys were all about in the beginning, but now she will chase after a ball or anything that dangles. She loves to look out the windows and see what is going on, but is happy to be inside. We discovered that she had lived on the streets for two years before her rescuer discovered her. Jasmine is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Baby Girl

Rescue:

It is always a sad situation when a cat is left outside to try and find food and shelter for itself, and kindness from strangers. It isn’t always possible and often their pleas for help are ignored. “Don’t feed the cat and it will go away.” To where? It’s hungry and it’s frightened from being on guard all the time from predators and unkind people. Such was the case of Baby Girl’s mother Kitty Kitty, it seemed that she had given up and just laid right down in the open gutter, waiting for someone to help her. Her last ditch effort (no pun intended). Finally someone took note and notified one of our volunteers. Upon being pet and picked up, it was obvious that KK was very pregnant. A short time later, in the safely of her foster home she had two kittens (one was Baby Girl) and they all thrived in Pet Patrol care. Fast forward two years and all three of the cats had long been adopted, but then we received a call from Baby Girls owner. She was hardly home any more, jobs had changed, lifestyle change and she felt she just couldn’t give her kitty the time she deserved. So Baby Girl is back in Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

This is one sweet girl! Baby Girl fit right into the sanctuary, where there are a lot of cats living, playing and waiting for their forever home. She would sit in her kitty bed on the window sill and watch all the other cats and kittens play, and keep an eye on the neighbourhood as well. She is very gentle and loving, and likes to be pet, cuddled and brushed too. Although Baby Girl was fostered in a home with dogs, other cats and older children and was part of the family, we feel she would do best as an only cat. She 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

Rescue:

On a busy, hot summer afternoon a man approached one of our volunteers at the sanctuary.  He asked if this was a cat rescue and he happily announced he had a kitten for us.  It is unusual for people to come to our facility without an appointment as we have limited space and resources.  He said that he had been trapping the squirrels in his neighbourhood and had relocated 17 so far.  He had caught this little one twice and thought he had better help him out.  He had him inside a cardboard box, on the front seat of his car, and once brought inside we opened the box and found a tiny little kitten.  Cache was very thin, dirty and dehydrated.  His eyes were dull and he was very weak and sad looking.  Immediately he was fed and he gulped down the canned food and had a long drink of water.  His eyes started to shine, he looked up from his almost empty dish and meowed at our volunteer. Sweetest little thank you we ever had.

Personality:

Cache has blossomed since then.  He has steadily put on weight and will come right up to his caregivers for a pet and a purr.  He is happy, playful and loves a good cuddle.  He has started to race around after every toy he can find, and likes to cuddle up with the other foster kittens.  Cache is easy to pick up and cradle in your arms, he will fall asleep on your lap and looks at you with total love.  He is adorable. He 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 has a group of women who organize our Trap Neuter Release program. They received a desperate call for help from an employee working at a trucking yard on the edge of town. They were informed that the resident cat population was getting out of control and some of the truckers were planning on taking matters into their own hands by removing the cats. One employee had been taking some of the cats and kittens home to obtain vet care and re-home them, but it was getting difficult to keep up with so many litters born every year. When the TNR volunteers went to the site, it was clear that this was not a safe place for babies and they immediately removed Moira, Morgan and Merlin and placed them in a foster home. Systematically, the other kittens were removed as well and the adults – wise to the large trucks and noise – were spayed/neutered and returned for rodent control. The colony will now be healthier and have more manageable numbers.

Personality:

Moira is the most independent kitten of her litter but enjoys cuddling beside you. She loves to race around, chase and play with toys, and wrestle with her two brothers Merlin and Morgon. Her favourite pastime is getting brushed; she loves it! She likes watch watching is going on in the house, and outside the window. Especially the bird feeder, it’s like kitty TV. Moira is a sweet and gentle cat who is ready to be adopted into her forever home; one that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Max was living with his owner who was eighty seven years old. He had a quiet and comfortable life, lots of petting and snuggles in front of the TV. There were a few visitors, most were family who helped the man out since his partner had been moved to a nursing home. She unfortunately suffered from Alzheimer and was unable to stay at home. So Max was great company for this elderly man who had his challenges as well. When he went into the hospital and doctors had to amputate his other leg, the family knew he would never be returning home. What to do with Max? No one in the family wanted him. This is not an uncommon, but an incredibly sad situation when a senior is unable to look after their pet any longer and no one else wants it. Luckily a foster home came forward just as Max came into our care and he was able to go from one home to the other easily.

Personality:

Being an only cat in a very quiet home, Max is used to having his own space and can be a little shy at first. Everything is new to him and in the beginning it can be a bit over whelming. But he will seek you out for petting with mewing like a kitten. It is very sweet. He does enjoy gentle belly rubs and being brushed. He actually has experienced a shoulder ride in his foster home and was ok with that, and loves to explore his new environment. Max is ready for his next adventure, a new home, and he will again make someone very happy. A home that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

Stella and her sister Sophia 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:

Stella and her sister Sophia are very sweet and friendly cats. They are extremely playful and love to get new toys. Stella’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. Stella is ready to be adopted with her sister Sophia, into their forever home. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors.
