Rescue:

Holly has been let down by quite a few folks in her short life. She found herself at the city shelter and was adopted in 2010 by a gentleman as a Christmas gift for his 10 year old daughter. Sadly the man and his wife separated and the woman and daughter were not animal people. Holly had little interaction with them and they basically just fed her. Eventually the ex husband found her a loving home and she bonded to the couple, but sadly, a few years later they separated and Holly was left behind. Since that time she has been living with someone who loves animals and who has been taking good care of her, but they are now battling cancer. Holly needs a new home again, a forever home.

Personality:

Holly would love to be an only cat. She was not raised with other felines and is quite independent of them. However, she loves her people. She is very good at communicating her wants. She will brush up against you and bunt her head against your leg, asking for you to pet her and pick her up. Once in your arms she loves to bury her face in your chest and purr loudly. She will get up and sit beside you or lay on you to be petted. Such good company. Like most cats she loves her cat nip toys, treats and cat naps – but will do a 100 yard dash for no reason. Holly would like a home of her own where she can finally bond with someone who will not leave her. She is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Poor Hobbs was found at a large Feed Mill in the downtown area of a rural town. Because of the feed, and people supplying food for the cats, there is a large feral colony that also includes abandoned frightened/friendly cats. One woman in town has taken it upon herself to feed the cats every day. She is unable to work but makes use of her time by helping the cats. She gets up every morning and walks the many blocks, with food in hand, to the Mill. She has arranged with the employees to supply fresh water to them and she also tries to tame them. Those that are friendly come to Pet Patrol for adoption. She noticed Hobbs limping for a couple months and knowing he would not be easy to put in a carrier she really concentrated on taming him. We are unsure how he became lame in his back leg, but once rescued he was immediately taken to the vet that Pet Patrol uses for xrays and evaluation. Nothing broken, but probably ligament damage, which will heal with time and patience.

Personality:

Hobbs has shown us what a sweet cat he is. He is gentle and loving, so appreciative of the help he has received through our volunteers and vet care. He is good with other cats and has made himself at home in the sanctuary. He is used to living with a variety of cats and their different personalities and is liking the attention from them and the people who come in to visit. Hobbs likes to be pet and will push his head into your hand, rubs up against your leg for attention and is quite happy to lay beside you on the couch or bed. He is a dear little cat. Hobbs is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Rescue:

There is a property that is known for having horses, a large barn and many many cats. Because the owners had not been keeping check on them, feeding them properly and having the cats spayed/neutered, the numbers increased every year. It had gotten to the point were the neighbours were feeding the cats because they looked so malnourished and miserable. Their life was of dirt, feces, wet and cold weather and no one caring about them. Many of the female cats would leave the stable to have their kittens in a chicken coop on a neighbouring property. It was safe and insulated, no chickens any more but there were nice nesting boxes for them to have their litters. The woman who owned the coop lived a good distance from the horse farm, and marveled at how far the cats would go for food and safety. Eventually the property was going to be sold and the cats were in dire need of being rescued. Unfortunately most of the cats were feral, but some like Harper showed promise of being socialized. The woman opened up her long unused work shop which was heated and began housing a lot of the cats there.

Personality:

Petite little Harper has come a long way in a short period of time with Pet Patrol. When she first arrived she was not wanting people to interact with her at all. Now we can pet her and she will come for her treats, but she is still shy with new people. She will excel in a quiet home with one or two people where the focus is on her and she will feel like it is her home. Cats change when they feel the love. Playful is her middle name, and she is right in there with the other cats chasing toys and being silly. She loves the kitty climber and watching the birds from the safety of the window sill. Harper is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One hat will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Didi (Kitten)

Rescue:

Pretty little Didi came from the home of an older man who runs a lawn care company, it is seasonal work, and allows him time off in the winter and on rainy days. He took note of a little cat coming onto his property and although timid, he began feeding her (this was Didi’s mom). She was thin and rough looking, and he felt she needed his help. He spent a lot of time trying to gain her trust, but it took two years to convince this feral cat to come into the safety of his house and during that time she produced a litter kittens. He was finally successful when he gathered up the babies and she followed him inside. She continued to be an indoor/outdoor cat, and to breed, so there were a few litters of various ages living in the house now. Every day he went to the grocery store and bought them fresh cooked chickens. They are well fed. He loved them. This past year she finally came into house for good and he could pet her and he continued to socialize her kittens. The man had plans to go to Florida for two or three months over the winter, so all the cats needed to be placed somewhere else. All together there were nine cats of various ages that came into our care. The older kittens were very social and the younger ones took a little more time.

Personality:
Didi is such a pretty little cat and you can hardly take your eyes off her. She is adorable. Slim and elegant, she is also gentle and sweet, and a little timid. She would excel in a quiet home with just one or two people, and another cat would be great too. With time and patience she has shown us that she is friendly, but not as forthcoming to new people just yet. She is playful and loves to join in on games of Tag and eagerly chases the elusive red laser dot. Usually perched in the window, or sunning herself on the soft beds, she has taken full advantage of living indoors. Didi is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Brynly (Kitten)

Rescue:

Brynly, Bronwyn, Bronson and, Brody came from a country property not far from the city. This was a farm that made sure all their cats were spayed or neutered, fed properly, clean water provided and had cat houses in a heated tack room. As often happens at farms, people abandon their unwanted cats at the end of the lane; cat follows lane to closest building and tries to take up residency. This is how their mother cat arrived. This was luckily a welcoming colony of barn cats, and their momma was noticed by the owner right away. She was very pregnant at the time and gave birth shortly afterwards. Not wanting the kittens to be raised outside, they were taken to her father’s home and did very well until he had a stroke. The kittens had been a great source of entertainment for him, but while recovering he was unable to look after them. The four kittens needed to be placed with a rescue organization quickly and they soon came into Pet Patrol care. The mother cat has since been spayed and remains on the farm as one of their favourite cats.

Personality:

Brynly is the smallest in her litter and her jet black coat is glossy and rich in colour. She was a little unsure of her new environment at the sanctuary, and looked to her brother for direction. She followed him as he investigated the Kitten Room, where there are multiple cat climbers, window seats and cubby holes to curl up in. Then she herself checked out the toys, those that bounce, crinkle and spin around. Playing with toys has become a new reality for all the kittens and they have had great fun with them. All the kittens are sweet and gentle and would do well adopted with a sibling into a quiet home. They are dear little cats who have been treated well and with respect. Brynly is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

In the Spring of 2011, this lovely little cat was dumped in the country near a farm. She was very friendly and approachable. When the lady of the house told her daughter, she immediately wanted to rescue her from the outdoor life as she had obviously been someone’s pet. It was a few days before Shilo was seen again but she had an injured eye this time and so needed to be brought in asap. Different cat rescues were contacted with no success, but a friend agreed to help foster her. On the day Shilo was to be  picked up she must have known help was on the way as she re-appeared with yet another surprise – all her five kittens. She was not much more than a kitten herself. Once the kittens were weened and homes found, Shilo, who had been treated by the vet for the injured eye, was spayed and at that time it was determined her eye had to be removed. The woman who rescued Shilo, fell in love with her and has provided a loving home ever since, but now life has changed for everyone. Shilo maintains her loving personality which is of great comfort for the woman who is now fighting cancer. She can no longer provide for this little cat and is looking for a loving home for her.

Personality:

Shilo is a gentle soul and will look at you with full love in her eye. She is very content being petted and brushed. She prefers all four paws on the floor but readily will jump up to you and snuggle on the couch or bed. She is very playful especially with catnip toys and enjoys her treats. She gets along fine with other cats, as she has lived with them before. She hasn’t met any dogs, but perhaps a passive older dog who just needs a buddy. Shilo is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

Told by his rescuers: One summer about three years ago, a sweet faced brown tabby started hanging around our country house. He was very shy and would bolt at the first sign of us. We began feeding him and he slowly became a regular visitor, but he remained very wild. As winter approached, we set up insulated shelters for him and he would use them. About two years ago, he had a badly broken tail, bent at 90 degrees about halfway down. We suspect it was a predator that had tried to catch him, then a short time later the broken half disappeared leaving a raw stump that eventually healed. By now we were calling him Manx and all attempts to rescue him failed but he was more tolerant of us and came for food when we called him. Recently we noticed pools of blood on the path leading up to the deck then saw that the stump of his tail was raw and severely damaged again. He was obviously in pain. It became clear that he needed to be trapped but would he allow it? Manx was nervous looking at the trap but after some hesitation, he finally went in. We were elated. Soon he was at the vet clinic having the remainder of his tail amputated and he was neutered as well.

Personality:
Manx is a stocky, muscular, but sweet faced cat who has adjusted to living indoors very quickly. He sees the luxuries of soft beds, a climate controlled house and the bottomless food dish. He thinks he is living at the Ritz after a life on the run from predators in the country. He can be found sprawled out on the cat bed with several other Pet Patrol cats, all waiting for their adopters to come. He still is a bit timid of all the new visitors, but is doing pretty good with the regular volunteers that come to the sanctuary. Manx is almost ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.
