Rescue:

Shilo and his siblings were from a very rural farm. An elderly couple own the farm, are in their mid eighties and their cat colony has gotten out of control. The daughter was trying to help and get things under control as her parents (especially her mother) are failing. Initially the farm was a beef operation but the cattle are gone now so the barn is much colder this winter. Being conscientious the daughter moved all the kitties over to the horse barn and into the tack room where it is warmer. She has diligently tried to make them all friendly as she realizes that it gives them a much better chance of finding homes. Some she had spayed or neutered; and she is willing to continue to work with our volunteer to have more altered. She asked if we would be able to take in four kittens who were affectionate and comfortable with people. Soon after Shilo, Sven, Sybelle and Smidge came into Pet Patrol care.

Personality:

Sven was a little unsure when he came into the sanctuary and was greeted with so many new people and and cats. But it didn’t take him long to feel safe and enjoy the head scratches and back massages given daily. Sven is quite a character and will flop over when you greet him, looking at you upside down. He is a joy. It was a lot of fun watching him discover toys, kitty climbers and the cat tunnel. Sven does best with a playmate and it would be nice for him to have one in his new home, or a sibling to go along with him. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.

Personality:

Shilo is a real cutie. He wants nothing more than to be in your arms, being cuddled and carried around. He will trot around after you, wanting to keep you company and see what you are doing. He is gentle and sweet, and likes his siblings and toys as well. He can quite often be found cuddled up to one of them, in a puddle of fur and purr. It would be great for him to have a playmate or sibling in his new home. Shilo will run around after any toys that crinkle or jingle, and the wand toy is amazing. He will scale the kitty climber and watch the neighbourhood from his perch, delighted in the birds and squirrels. this little wonder is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors

Rescue:

A lady who has a small cat rescue, out of town, received a call from a girl who was about 18 years old. She lived at home with her family and they already had three dogs and three cats (mother cat, father cat and kitten from a previous litter) and now three new kittens. The house was becoming over crowded with pets, and they knew they could not keep Bambi and her two sisters (Bindi and Blossom) nor afford to have them spayed. Initially they had tried to sell the kittens online and when that didn’t work they tried to give them away for free, but there were no takers. The young woman was looking for a cat rescue who could help and reached out to family and friends on Face Book, who led her to the small rescue. Soon the kittens were on their way to Pet Patrol and the family was referred to the low cost spay/neuter clinic closest to them so that there would not be any more unwanted kittens born.

Personality:

Bambi and her sisters are all very cute and cuddly. They have been handled by children and cradled, which they all love, carried around and are quite relaxed in your arms. Like all kittens they are very playful and energetic, love their toys and investigating everything around them. A cardboard box can go a long way in entertaining them, and they are very excited when their person brings the wand toy out. They are not shy but rather quite confident and outgoing. Completely adorable. Bambi is ready to be adopted into her forever home, hopefully with a sibling or playmate. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

Darcy

Rescue:

Starting in early summer, a young male cat (eventually named Darcy), who was very skittish,started passing through a woman’s yard. At first she thought he was an owned cat but he seemed to be getting thinner, like he wasn’t getting fed daily. She put food out for him and he would creep up to the kibble and inhale it, but as soon as he saw her he would be off the porch like a shot. It took several weeks for him to feel comfortable enough to eat while she was watching. He was not a regular visitor and would miss days or meal times. By early fall Darcy would come when she called him and she could pet him while he ate. Eventually, this petting and ear rubs became a routine. As the nights were getting rather cold he started to spend his days and nights in the insulated kitty house on a bench, sheltered in a corner of the porch. From there he was coaxed into the house and was an indoor/outdoor cat for a while, until he adjusted to being inside. By now the temperature was below zero outside and Darcy decided he was not going out any more and has been a happy indoor cat since. Within a few days be came into Pet Patrol care after an extensive search for his original home to no avail.

Personality:

Once he was comfortable in the house, Darcy’s personality blossomed and he has never looked back. He will race around playfully, give you head bunts, and chat up a storm, all the while his tail would be tilted over his back like a teapot handle. He was one happy fella and gobbled up all the attention and affection we shower on him. His rescuer was so happy that he would have a chance at finding a forever home, yet sad that she would lose such a charming, playful, chatty, affectionate kitty. He will make someone a wonderful companion. Darcy is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors

Vera

Rescue:

During a cold spell in the fall Vera showed up on the porch of two kind sisters with her first litter of kittens in tow, seeking shelter from the quickly approaching winter. Vera had been noticed out and about in the neighbourhood for some time now, but only from a distance as she was timid. The sisters took this mother cat and her young kittens in, only to have Vera give birth again while in their care. The sisters decided to adopt the first litter for their own, and set Vera up with her new kittens in a spare room in the basement. They feared getting attached to this second set of kittens, so they limited their interaction with them as much as possible. This was not a great plan in regards to making them family friendly pets though. The sisters kept the kittens until they were five months old, then searched around to see if there would be any organizations that could help rehome them and Vera as well. Asking at a local pet store, they were put in contact with Pet Patrol, and the entire feline family came into a foster home soon after. All the kittens were adopted into loving homes, but Vera needed time to adjust to living an indoor life. Now it is her turn to find her family.

Personality:

Vera has adorable ears and beautifully expressive eyes. In her present foster home she is exposed to other cats as well as dogs, and although she is able to co-exist, we feel that she would be more confident in a home as an only pet. She is a shy and very timid lady, and will need a home with lots of love and patience to allow her to adjust. She likes to spend the bulk of her time in one room, away from the busy house, with everything she needs close at hand. The opportunity to expand her space as an only cat is definitely in her future. Vera is a very sweet cat, and likes a head and neck rub as well as bum rubs, and is a fan of forehead kisses. This amazing girl deserves a home where she can live out her indoor days safe and treated like the princess she is. Vera is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the home and keep her safely indoors.

Rescue:

One of our volunteers, has a feeding station on her front porch, sometimes feeding as many as 16 stray cats at at time. She called about a new group of seven or eight friendly cats who were coming on a regular basis to eat. She and her neighbours had never been seen any of these cats before in their small community and figured they were just dropped off. Possibly to a neighbouring farm. Someone thinking that it would good idea to take cats who may never have been outdoors, to live in a barn in the middle of the winter. The cats were all friendly and affectionate and certainly didn’t deserve this type of life of abandonment, freezing weather, little food and no shelter where there is any warmth. At least they had regular feeding and water at on her porch. Reid was the sixth cat of the group to come into her care and settled in very quickly.

Personality:

Reid is a very nice and friendly boy who likes belly rubs. He is a pretty handsome boy too. He purrs readily and looks forward to the attention he receives at the sanctuary. He has done well with the other cats, since he was part of a colony of cats before, and thinks it is just natural to have buddies. Reid is learning about being indoors again, and is curious about his surroundings, wanting to see everything and making himself comfortable. He was not sure about toys in the beginning, having never seen a crinkle ball, toy mouse or plastic spring, but he is getting the hang of it. Reid 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 Patrol’s volunteers lives in a small, close community, near a busy road. She has a dog, a cat and a number of birds in her home, and takes note of any stray cats and local wildlife that she sees roaming freely. Little Kandy showed up near the end of November looking all nice and clean and she thought maybe someone in the area had a new cat. It is never a good idea to let your cat roam freely as there are fox, coyote and hawks just waiting for that next meal. After three weeks of feeding her, this mostly white little cat was getting very dirty. Seeing this the woman knew she was a lost or abandoned cat, and was finding shelter under cars or trailer homes. Anything to keep the rain, snow and wind away from her. The search was on to find Kandy’s original owner, but no one seemed to be missing her. Food was provided for this little cat close to the insulated shelter beside the volunteer’s home and she made good use of it. Being very timid at the time, Kandy would run off if she was noticed or heard any noise. It took three attempts to rescue her in the humane trap, but nice smelly tuna finally lured her in, then it was on to Pet Patrol.

Personality:

It took a few days for Kandy to be sure of her new environment and to become familiar with the routine at the sanctuary. She had her own apartment like cage, and she could see the other cats and the volunteers who cared for her. By the third day she was accepting pets, and loved it. When she first arrived she had a greasy patch on her back, and it needed several soapy spongings to clean that off. Kandy was grateful to see that gone. She is a happy little cat now, gentle and sweet. She loves to have her head scratched, her ears rubbed and to be pet from head to tail. Her toys are a favourite, as is sitting in the cat hammock in the window. Kandy is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.
