"Chazzy" came to DunRoamin' on October 25, 2010, after being found on the side of the road in the pouring rain near Tim Horton's on Beardsley Road near Woodstock, NB two days earlier.  He appeared to have an injured leg, as he would not let his rescuers touch it.  He was very hungry, cold, wet and exhausted.  He was taken in and cared for until he could be brought for medical help.  He was born about May, 2007.

Chazzy was diagnosed with an extreme number of fleas.  He had never been neutered, had worms, bloody diarrhea and an ulcerated tongue.  This would have made it very difficult and painful for him to eat, thus explaining his lack of weight.   He also had a urinary problem in which he was unable to pee.  He required surgery which involved amputating his penis and has been eating Medi-Cal Urinary S/O food since then and, as with all our cats who are prescribed this food, he has never had a recurrence at all!  He is a perfectly happy, healthy and normal cat.

Chazzy shows his gratitude by purring, kneading and cuddling with any human who comes near him.   He lived with 20 other cats, and he got along perfectly well with every single one.  He plays like a little kitten!  He's currently in a foster home awaiting that permanent family home he's been dreaming of for years.  He is a beautiful boy who would really like to have a warm, safe home forever.  His ramblin' days are done!  It's no fun!!  And by the way, he'd be pleased to go to any home - even one with a dog!

On January 28, 2011, "Goochi," just 10 weeks old, came to DunRoamin' from the Bristol area where she was one of three kittens who were feral, cold, hungry and very scared.  They had a terrible amount of parasites, including fleas, ear mites and worms.  All these troubles were quickly addressed.  She was born about December 7, 2010.

Goochi was rescued by a senior citizen who had seen her, her mother and two sisters in the snow outside her apartment.   The temperatures had been below -25*C and when you add in the wind chill, few creatures, if any, could survive outdoors for long on their own in that kind of cold.

Even with the terribly cold temperatures, when the lady saw them in her back yard, she left her patio door open so they could come in where it was warm and have the benefit of plenty of food.  Even as feral as they were, they recognized compassion and came slowly inside.  When the senior citizen would get up to close the door, they'd run back outside.  She finally was able to close the door behind them and they came to us for help.  Goochi has been waiting for her home for seven years now.  She is not a cuddle cat and is not very comfortable around humans but is happy to have the company of other cats and to have a warm and safe home with someone to watch over her.

"Gail" and her four kittens Greer, Gaines, Gamble and Gardner (all of whom have been adopted) came to us on September 14, 2012 from Hartland where a kind and generous couple had been feeding several strays who had been dropped off in their area. The lady had recently passed away and the man was moving, so these young ones would no longer have anyone to watch out for them. All were spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested for FeLV and FIV and treated for parasites. 

Gail was born about September 15, 2011 and although she was a little timid, she's come a long way in showing that she'll easily be an affectionate companion.  She is fostered by some amazing supporters in West Florenceville.  Thank you so much, Rod and Judy!  It makes all the difference in the world to her!

"Galloway" came to us on January 23, 2013 from Woodstock, NB where he was a stray.  He had a lame right hind leg, was not neutered, was cold, hungry and dirty.  He was born about June 2007.

Despite all this, he was kneading and happy to have found refuge.  He was found to have a bit of arthritis, but he's doing very well.  He wasn't very impressed with the first dog he met, but that seems to be dependent on the size and personality of the dog!  He hasn't had a lot of exposure to dogs, but he's willing to try.  He is a sweet boy who was and would love to be again one of our Cats for Seniors cats - he loves to sit and cuddle and spend time with a human to whom he will totally dedicate himself.  He hopes for a new home very soon.

"Dundee" came to DunRoamin' on June 18, 2013 from Carlo where she had come to the home of senior citizens all on her own.  She was cold and hungry and had no one to care for her.  The lady of the house was taking her husband to Saint John for surgery the very next morning and would not return for some time, so Dundee had no place to go to be safe.

Dundee was born about the middle of May 2013.  She had earmites and fleas but was otherwise healthy.  She eats like a little pig and purrs like a lioness.  She loves people and other cats.  She'd like a permanent home where she can grow up to share her love with a human and maybe even another feline or two!  She's presently fostered in  Wicklow with one of our DunRoamin' student volunteers.

"Samuel" came to DunRoamin' on June 20, 2013 from Woodstock where he had been a stray who had come to the home of people who couldn't keep him.  Neighbours took the initiative to help him, but when he had three seizures in a week, they knew they couldn't provide him with the care he needed.  They generously donated money and food to help him out and will follow his progress on this website.

Sam was born about June, 2007.  He was very skinny although he's eaten a lot of food and put on some weight since he came for help.  He was also very lethargic and was diagnosed as having epilepsy.  He's a really nice boy who can use some extra loving from a family who understands his needs.  He's currently doing perfectly well on his medication that prevents more seizures and is happy to take his medication with no complaints whatsoever.  He's very happy and affectionate and he's more than loving.  He likes to play with other cats and loves dogs too!  Since being on his medication he has shown few symptoms of epilepsy, and it's been many months.  He's perfect!  You can meet him by visiting DunRoamin' - he's our greeter in our front office!

"Frosty" came to us on December 19, 2013. She was found on the Hartland bridge all by herself and she needed help.  She is a beautiful buff-coloured torti estimated to have been born sometime in 2004.

Frosty was very thin, dehydrated and she had fleas.  Her right ear was swollen and sore and had a discharge due to frostbite.  Part of her ears fell off from the frostbite soon after her arrival.  She was lame on her front left leg and both hind legs and all the pads on her feet were blistered from frostbite.  In addition to the pain she would have endured from this, her wounds were full of road salt.

Thanks to the efforts of her vet at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic, Frosty was feeling better quickly.  It's so hard to believe what these little ones are forced to go through.  We all thank the gentleman who rescued her.  Although she didn't get her wish for a home at Christmas time, she's still hoping to have one soon.  She's happy to sleep comfortably on her toasty warm Snuggle Safe.  Her best wish is for a home where she can spend time sleeping with, on or near a human.  She's currently fostered in Florenceville where she's enjoying the glory of wood heat!!

"Mrs Claws" came to DunRoamin' on the afternoon of the day before Christmas, 2013.  She had a collar embedded in her flesh under her right front leg.  She had obviously tried to get out of the collar but her leg had gotten caught.  This would have been very uncomfortable and painful for her, especially trying to survive in this cold winter weather on her own.  She was born about December 25, 2012.

She was quickly made warm, safe, pain-free and was eating like she hadn't had food in a very long time.  She settled in, was no longer startled by movements or sounds and realized she was finally safe.   She purrs and head butts her human slaves when they enter the room.  She also tells them if they've done something wrong!  She can be a little cranky at times, but she gets along with the dozen or so cats she lives with, although she'd be just as happy to be your only cat!

On February 3, 2016, Mrs Claws was diagnosed with an intermittent heart arrhythmia.  This is unlikely to cause her to have any symptoms but it is possible that she could have heart/stroke-related signs later in life, although that could be considered a "worst-case scenario."  She's perfectly fine, happy and her attitude is very healthy, as is she!

Bristle

Pounce

"Pounce," "Bristle," Blitz and Breeze came to us on January 9, 2014  from the Perth-Andover area and are loving cats who have been through a lot.  Blitz and Breeze have since been adopted, but Pounce and Bristle are still waiting.  They were born about January 1, 2013.  They were all scared and confused, but became accepting of love, hugs and pats.  Bristle is easily the most outgoing and she loves to be patted, picked up and cuddled. 

Pounce (black) and Bristle (tabby) are still waiting for a home after more than three full years!  They are very attached to each other and they also love kittens.  If there are kittens in the room, they'll be cuddling with them.  Please come meet these two beautiful cats.

"Strauss" came to DunRoamin' on October 28, 2014 from the Brookville area where she was one of several cats who had taken refuge in a shed.  Kind neighbours had very generously taken on the task of their care and were diligent enough to notice a lump on her belly.  She had an umbilical hernia which was quickly repaired when she was accepted as a DunRoamin' ward.   Strauss was born about May 1, 2014.

Strauss has become a very affectionate and trusting little girl.  As of January 21, 2015, she is fostered with a family in Bristol.  Thanks, Shawn and Mitchell, for giving her a home environment.  It is most probably a very unique experience for her!  She is currently eating Urinary S/O food.

"Ennis" became a ward of DunRoamin' in the late afternoon of March 11, 2015 when she was abandoned in a box outside the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic along with Solar (adopted) whom we suspected was her sister.  They were born about March 10, 2014.

Ennis had infection in both ears but was otherwise healthy.  She was scared, of course, but has done well.  She was uninterested in eating and had to be fed several times daily by syringe, but she has since decided that the food at DunRoamin' isn't so bad and is eating very well on her own.  She likes to snuggle with other cats for comfort and is currently living with a half dozen others.  She would like a quiet home where she would get lots of attention, preferably with another cat for company.  She is initially timid of humans, but is content to be in the same room and even accepts a pat or rub every once in awhile.  She will most probably not ever be a lap cat, but she is a beautiful girl who deserves a chance at a loving home and family.  She is currently fostered by a loving family in Currie Siding, along with her friend Trickle.  Thank you!

"Artemus" came to us on April 22, 2015 from the NBSPCA, along with 14 other cats.  Artemus is a beautiful tabby boy who was born about August 22, 2013.  He had earmites and was very thin but was in otherwise good health.

Artemus was quite timid but has learned to trust.  He lived with four other cats whom he loved.  He is a beautiful boy who would like to live in a home with a family and at least one other cat for feline company.  He seems to like men more than women, but warms up to women as well.  Please come meet him.  He has a wonderful personality.  He has come a very long way and will actually meet us at the door asking for a pat!  He loves kittens and other cats for company.

On November 26, 2016, Artemus was invited to live as a foster kitty with a very nice couple in Hartland who also adopted two DunRoamin' kittens (Fire and Ice).  He will be a new best friend for three children, but he's quite partial to the gentleman - they've bonded VERY quickly and strongly.  Thank you for fostering this beautiful boy!

"Benedict" came to DunRoamin' on July 29, 2015.  He had belonged to a family but when he was allowed to go out he became injured and they could not meet the financial obligations of his care.  Benedict was examined and found to have a high fever, he was dehydrated and had abrasions and lacerations on his right front leg. 

All Benedict's medical needs were addressed.  He is now neutered and vaccinated and he hopes for a loving home soon.  He is very loving and affectionate and loves to head butt and be cuddled. He claimed the rocking chair in our general population room where he lounged daily while his human servants waited on his every want and need!  He is a beautiful boy - won't someone come take him home? 

Benedict eventually was diagnosed with a bladder infection and a small bladder stone but he's fine now.  He eats Urinary S/O food as a standard to ensure he doesn't get a bladder infection again.  He is one of our most loving and affectionate boys and he hopes for a new home very soon.

"Write-On" returned to DunRoamin' on August 25, 2015 from his home in Florenceville where he had lived since September 14, 2013.  Along with his friend Wimbledon (see below), he had been adopted by a wonderful family and loved by their two children.  Unfortunately, allergies developed and both cats were unable to stay in the home.  Write-On had originally been struck by a car while living in the Bristol area and had sustained a broken lower jaw and injured front leg, but had been all fixed up and he is 100% fine!

Write-On is a beautiful little boy who loves his friend Wimbledon.   It is hoped they can go back to a loving home together.  Write-On was born about May 28, 2011.  He is currently fostered in Upper Brighton with Wimbledon and he thanks Kate for her kindness.

"Wimbledon" returned to DunRoamin' on August 25, 2015, from his home in Florenceville where he had lived since September 14, 2013.  Along with his friend Write-On (see above), he had been adopted by a wonderful family and loved by their two children, but allergies had developed and they could no longer stay in the home. 

Wimbledon had originally come from Wicklow where his mom and one sibling had been killed by traffic.  He and two of his siblings were rescued and came to us.  He was born about June 10, 2013.  He hopes for a new family now, hopefully with his best friend Write-On.  He's currently fostered in Upper Brighton with Write-On and thanks Kate for her kindness.

"Toonah" returned to DunRoamin' on September 5, 2015 from Woodstock where she had been part of a family since May 9, 2011 but they could no longer care for her so she came back to us.  Toonah was overweight and requires a diet and some exercise to get her back to a healthy weight.  She's working on that, and doing a good job!

Toonah was born about 2003 and is a quiet and independent individual.  She enjoys company, especially when she's eating.  She also likes to lie beside you on the couch and sometimes even enjoys a nice warm lap.  She's a very special little girl who doesn't require much - just food, water, a bed and someone to talk to.

On November 24, 2016, Toonah was diagnosed with a form of cancer.  She will stay with us and be even more spoiled than she is now.  She is a very special little girl who greets us each morning, follows us around and enjoys her special treats and warm, cozy bed.  She is very special to us.

"Chyler" and her sisters Bliss and Trickle all came to DunRoamin' on November 18, 2015 from Grand Falls, NB.  The people who had them requested that they be euthanized because they were too wild.  These three little girls were only about three  and a half months old, born about August 1, 2015.

All three were in decent health, although they were slightly skinny and had fleas.  Their parasites were treated and they got lots of healthy food so they could put on some weight.  They were initially scared, but a little love and compassion went a long way and they now realize they are among friends.  As of January 6, 2016, they cuddle, purr and play with the best of them.  They particularly like cuddling with other cats.

"Dilbert" came to DunRoamin' on January 4, 2016 from Perth-Andover, NB, where he had been in a home for a couple of weeks, but became ill.  He was brought for help and the following was learned:  he was dehydrated, neurologic (had a problem with his nervous system), was unable to stand or walk and expressed pain each time he was touched on his head.

Dilbert is a sweet cat who has improved nicely.  He loves attention and loves people.  He meets people at the door and rubs against them asking for lots of lovin'.  He's doing very well and is ready for a permanent home.  His sweet personality has made him a favourite of our volunteers and staff and he hopes for a family very soon.

"Jenkins" came to DunRoamin' on January 5, 2016 as part of a colony of feral cats whom we helped spay and neuter so the colony would not continue to grow in size.  They had no one to look after them where they were, so they were relocated.  Jenkins needed a little extra care so he stayed with us until he was more comfortable.  Jenkins is not feral so will be happy to live in a home with humans.

Jenkins was born about October 6, 2015 and enjoys tummy rubs, sitting on laps and head butts.  He is timid with new people or surroundings, but he has settled in well and is very curious and playful.  He hopes for a new home soon.

"Slater" came to DunRoamin' on March 1, 2016 from the Bristol area.  Although he had good body condition, he had a cauliflower left ear, abrasions on his head, dandruff, earmites and tapeworms.  He was prescribed medication, cleaned up, given a great diet and is now feeling so much better.

Slater was originally timid and very standoffish, but he quickly became comfortable enough to meet us at his kennel door.  He head butts and purrs with the best of them, now that he's feeling so much better.  He was born about March 1, 2014 and is rapidly displaying his ability to be a fine and loving young tomcat.  He is currently fostered with friends in Grand Falls where he is doing just great, but he's very anxious to have a permanent home!!

His foster parents have so very generously offered to donate the adoption fee for Slater, so if he's the boy you're interested in, please let us know!  He's very anxious for his very own permanent home.  He is so very handsome with his pewter gray fur!

I'm interested.  How do I meet this cat?

"Cyprus" came to DunRoamin' on April 17, 2016 from the Woodstock area where she was a stray with three little babies, Asia, Token and Knight, all of whom have been adopted.  Her babies, only about five weeks old, had been found all alone a few days previously but Cyprus could not be located.  After three days, she was found trapped in the ducts of a building and had apparently been there for at least three days without food or water.

Cyprus was cared for and was reunited with her babies.  She was timid and scared of us at first, but it's been all downhill from there!

Update:  as of June 3, 2016, Cyprus is a whole different kitty!  She loves to have her belly rubbed, purrs and cuddles just fine.  She can still be a little standoffish until she gets to know you, but she's doing very well.  She's happy to have lots of cat friends around her right now, but she's hoping for a loving family soon.

Week 1


Week 14

"Tesla" came to DunRoamin' on May 17, 2016 from Upper Brighton where she had been hanging out at a home that had been abandoned.  She was brought for help and shortly after arriving gave birth to three little babies, Nexus, Reeve and Pax.  Tesla was born about October 15, 2013 and is a little timid - perhaps because she is in a strange place with her new babies.  She understands that she has lots of food, a warm bed and that she and her kittens are getting the best of care. 

Tesla is a beautiful long-haired calico.  We already know she is a great mom and we're sure she'll be a great new friend for the lucky person who chooses her as their next family member.  As of August 10, 2016, she is much less little timid of people.  She'd like a quiet home with some humans of her very own to love and she'd also like to have a cat friend or two to cuddle with.

I'm interested.  How do I meet this cat?

Three young kittens came to us on the evening of September 27, 2016.  "Sugar," Stevia and Splenda had been found at Pizza Delight in Woodstock.  People had taken them in but were unable to keep or care for them.  There had originally been four, but one had gotten away.  Even though it was late at night, a concerned DunRoamin' volunteer went to pick up the remaining three kittens, made sure they had food and were safe and warm overnight, then delivered them to veterinary care the next day.  This same person set a live trap which she checked frequently in the hope of finding the fourth kitten.  It was cold and lonely out there at night, but the fourth was not located.  Thank you so much for trying - these three little ones are safe because of you.  All were born about May 28, 2016.  They all were spayed, vaccinated, tested for FeLV and FIV and treated for all parasites.

Sugar's siblings were adopted on January 29, 2017 and she's hoping for the same opportunity very soon.  She's a beautiful little girl who would very much like a family of her own.

Juan & Kalijah cuddle in their TV

"Juan" and his brother Pablo (see below) came to us on October 17, 2016 from the Hartland area where they were living under an abandoned house.  They were born about May 18, 2016.  Juan is a silver tabby and was quite timid and nervous at first, but now he just loves everyone.

Juan currently lives with four other cats at DunRoamin' and he's well used to the hustle, bustle and all the volunteers who treat him so well.  He'd love to go to a safe, warm and loving home, especially if his brother Pablo gets to go with him!  He loves him, as well as other cats, and loves to have someone to cuddle with.

"Pablo" and his brother Juan (see above) came to us on October 17, 2016 from the Hartland area where they were living under an abandoned house.  They were born about May 18, 2016.  Pablo was initially timid, but once he was picked up, held and patted, he quickly settled in just fine.  Now he's nothing short of the cutest, loudest-purring cuddle cat you'll ever meet!

Pablo purrs, head butts and enjoys being cuddled and talked to.  He'd love to have a safe, warm and loving home, and he'd particularly love it if his brother Juan could go along with him!  They love sleeping wrapped around each other!

Peace!

"Peace" came to DunRoamin' on the evening of November 4, 2016, when she was live-trapped at an abandoned home in Hartland.  She is the fifth cat rescued from this area where a lady was feeding them but they had no real shelter or caretaker.  In addition, none were spayed or neutered, so this group of five would, without a doubt, turn into dozens very quickly, all of whom would have had no home.  Peace would like to thank this lady for looking out for them.  She'd also like to thank Dr Monteith for helping her on her time off - she's been examined, received parasite control, spayed, fully vaccinated and tested for FIV and FeLV.  She's perfectly fine!

Peace is so named because her white and grey fur form a peace sign on the back of her head.  She's still a little timid, but she's safe, warm, has a full belly and is surrounded by friends. 

As of November 12, 2016, Peace purrs  and allows herself to be picked up and cuddled.  She's not 100% trusting yet, but she's well on her way!

"Lemur" came to DunRoamin' on November 15, 2016 when he was abandoned in Jacksonville by persons who were apparently unwilling to take responsibility for him.  He had a cauliflower ear and an upper respiratory infection.  He was born about November 15, 2011.

Lemur is the 200th stray we have accepted this year.  Our resources were maxed out, including space, volunteers, foster homes and funding.  If you're able to help these little guys in any way, donations are gratefully accepted here.

As of March 6, 2017, Lemur is doing fine.  He loves attention and will bat at your hand with his paw to make sure he gets the attention he feels he deserves.  He's quite the boy!

"Kendrick" came to us on November 15, 2016, from the Wicklow area where he was most likely struck by a car.  He was born about March 15, 2016.  He was very calm and friendly, no doubt very aware that at last he was getting some help for his painful injury.

Examination by his vet revealed that, along with a laceration on his foot and a hole in his groin, his hip was broken in two places.  This required surgery.  The femoral head was removed from his hip joint and he now has pins and wire to stabilize the joint and help him get back to perfection!  He's doing very well!

Shortly after Christmas 2016, Kendrick was diagnosed with an abscessed kidney which resulted in it growing to three times it's normal size.  He is being treated with a three-month course of antibiotics and we're hoping that will do the trick - he'd be fine after that.  Worse-case scenario:  his kidney will be have to be removed - we've already determined that his other kidney is fine, so he'll be fine whichever way it goes.  He is very loving, very playful (he loves people and other cats with a passion!) and very affectionate!

Stay tuned - we'll keep you up to date.  He's doing very well and we expect that he'll continue to do so.  He is very affectionate with people and loves to be around other cats.

"Abner" was returned to DunRoamin' on November 17, 2016 from the home in Bath where he had been adopted previously.  His owner had developed a medical problem and was no longer able to keep him.  Abner had sustained a recent injury to his right eye and his third eyelid was swollen and inflamed.  It was determined that his injury had become infected, he was treated and he's fine now.  As a matter of fact, he's perfect. 

Abner was born about April 1, 2012 and is a grey tabby with a most exceptionally-loving personality.  He purrs, head butts and kneads constantly if a human is handy.  He loves to cuddle and be patted and he hopes for a loving family with whom he can spend Christmas.

If you're interested in helping us care for Abner and his sixty-plus friends we have taken in over the last two months, donations are gratefully accepted here.

"Emerson" came to DunRoamin' on December 16, 2016 from Woodstock.  He had been left to fend for himself when the people who had been caring for him for several years left the area.  The temperature was -35*C today including wind chill and the gentleman who brought him could not see him left out alone.  Neighbours in the area were not able to take him in and the shelters were all full.  So were we, but we couldn't see him left alone in these freezing temperatures - he wouldn't have lasted long, and he'd have had a very hard time of it.

Emerson was examined by a vet and he appeared to be in decent shape.  He was born about December 16, 2011, so he was about five years old and was already neutered, so he belonged to someone at some time. 

We're glad you are warm and safe, Emerson.  Thanks to the gentleman who made this possible and for the donation he left to help with your care.

"Nascat" came to DunRoamin' on January 2, 2016 from the NBSPCA in Arthurette.  He had been found on the side of the road and displayed injuries.  He was born about January 2, 2012.  He had an injury to his tail, most probably resulting from it being caught in something and jerked very hard.

Nascat required his tail to be amputated.  He is very well and is perfectly normal in every way, but he must have his urine expressed from his body due to the fact that he currently cannot pee on his own.  He is a very affectionate little boy who is hoping for a caring person to give him the life he would like to experience.  

As you can see by this photo on April 16, 2017, Nascat has come a very long way.  One of his favourite napping spots is in the mail tray!  He is happy, healthy, playful and loving and he loves to interact with his humans and feline friends as well.  He uses the litter box but must be expressed daily to ensure his bladder empties.  He will give his complete love and devotion to anyone who is willing to give him a home.  He is a very sweet little boy who is grateful to have his health back and to have someone to love.

"Wilson" was returned to DunRoamin' on January 24, 2016.  He had originally been adopted by a family from Florenceville in November, 2008, but due to medical considerations in the home, he could no longer live there.  Wilson had originally been left, along with nine brothers and sisters, on the steps of Carleton County Animal Shelter on Canada Day, 2008.  The kittens were barely four weeks old.  As the shelter could not deal with such a large number of kittens at one time, DunRoamin' accepted them and our volunteers and foster parents quickly took over their care.  Many were sick and required much attention, but eventually all except little Burbank became well and were adopted - four went together to a wonderful lady in Centreville!

Wilson is extremely loving and friendly, loves his belly rubs and loves everyone he meets.  He has not yet been exposed to dogs.  Upon his return Wilson weighed approximately 25 pounds, so is now on a special Calorie Control diet.  He's not too happy about that, but it's what he needs, and we're hoping that in the next few months we can help him lose his excess weight so he can become healthy once again.  As of April, 2017, he's down to barely 20 pounds!  He is a very nice boy who loves people.  He'd love to go to a home where he can continue his weight loss with lots of exercise and affection.  He eats a special diet, but has no other restrictions at all!!


Wilson, August 2008

"Barlow" came to DunRoamin' on January 24, 2017 from the NB SPCA, part of a large number of cats who were living together who needed some help.  Barlow had ear mites and was quite timid, but he's starting to come around, now that he has lots of caring people who socialize with him often to make him feel safe and loved.

Barlow was born about January 24, 2015.  He has been neutered, vaccinated and received treatment for all parasites, as well as tested for FIV and FeLV.  He would love to have a quiet, loving home and would appreciate having another feline friend to keep him company.  He is a real cuddle cat once he gets to know you.  His favourite pose is with his front paws on your knees asking to be picked up!

"Derp" came to DunRoamin' on January 24, 2017 as a seizure by the NB SPCA, part of a large number of cats who were living together who needed some help.  Derp had a wound on his head, and extremely bad ear mites which had been so terrible that they had damaged both his ear drums.  One ear drum was not salvageable but thanks to medical intervention, the other appears to be healing fine.  Derp has only one bone (as opposed to two, as all other cats do) in his right front leg.  Although his leg works fine, there is a possibility that his wrist or elbow joint could dislocate.  He also has one hip which is dysplastic (shows abnormal development) and both his kneecaps in his hind legs slip out of place.  He will require surgery to repair this condition, but we're sure he'll be fine.  Just ask Asher (check out our Adopted Cats page) who had the same problem, underwent surgery for it and is PERFECTLY fine!  He runs, plays and jumps with the best of them.  Maybe better!  Just ask him!!

Derp was born about May 24, 2016, so was just a kitten of only eight months when he was rescued.  What a hard time he's had, but only good things are in store for him now.  He has been neutered, vaccinated and received treatment for all his medical problems.  He also tested negative for FIV and FeLV.   His ear is improving and we're sure there are many more medical miracles on the way for him.  He is a sweetheart who really pines for a family who will love and care for him as he deserves.

"William" came to DunRoamin' on February 10, 2017 from the Bath area.  He is a very handsome orange tabby with striking green eyes who was born sometime in the year 2000, so he's about 17 years old.  He's very loving, quiet and affectionate and he'd just like to have a home and a family to care for him in his golden years. 

William enjoys other cats and has shown no problems with the dogs he has encountered since he has been with us.  He is healthy, happy and hoping for someone to make his life complete.  He just needs a nice soft, warm bed, some food and some lovin'.  Oh, and some Temptations.  Lots of Temptations.  Any takers??  Right now he's in a foster home and he's living the good life!  He thanks his foster parents for taking him in.  So do we!

"Bowie" became DunRoamin' on Valentine's Day, 2017 when he came from the Perth-Andover area.  He is a handsome and wildly affectionate little boy who seems to love everyone he meets and eagerly greets newcomers with loving head butts.  He was born about July 29, 2015.

Bowie has been diagnosed with a condition which requires him to eat Urinary S/O food.  This is nothing serious at all - he just requires a special diet to ensure he does not block.  He also had an upper respiratory infection, but he's quite well over that.  Bowie was also diagnosed with a cataract in his right eye.  He has been treated for that and he's doing fine.  He also had an inflamed bladder wall, but has no bladder stones, which is a good thing.  He was treated with fluids, pain medication and antibiotics, as well as supplements to soothe his bladder and as long as he eats his prescription food, he's perfect!  He hopes tospend the rest of his life in a family being warm, safe and loved.  Who doesn't deserve that??  He'd love it if his best buddy, Sheldon (see below) could go with him.  They run, wrestle, sleep, play and hug each other constantly - where one is, you'll find the other.  They would love to be brothers for life.

Day 1


Look at me now!!

"Isaac" came to us on March 20, 2017 from the Woodstock area.  He had been out all night and was found early the next morning with injuries likely sustained from being struck by a vehicle.  His owners were unable to undergo his care.  Isaac was born about March 20, 2014.

Isaac has no apparent fractures but he may have a possible spinal injury.  He is on pain medication and undergoing laser treatment to help him recover.  He is a sweet boy and we hope he'll be fine.  As of April 9, 2017, he is much brighter, eats like a little piggy and is much happier.  He's a very nice boy who can't wait to have a home of his very own.  Come meet him!

"Sheldon" came to us from Tilley, NB on March 20, 2017.  He was part of a group of cats who had been left in an abandoned home since at least February 1, 2017.  The SPCA had eventually removed several cats from there but he had been left behind.  He eventually found his way out of the house and was live-trapped by neighbours and brought for help.

Sheldon was relatively healthy with ear mites and minor tartar on his teeth.  He has been neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites.  He is friendly and hopes for a loving home where he can enjoy the company of servants all day long.  Sheldon was born about March 20, 2014 and is happy to have a warm home, cat and human friends and a chance at the life a loving cat deserves.  His best dream would be to adopted to a home where his best friend, Bowie (see above) could go with him. They are inseparable and love to run, play, cuddle, wrestle and hug each other!

"Catosaurus Rex" came to us on April 7, 2017 from the Stickney area.  He had been seen in the area for a couple of days, but on this day he was injured.  He had fleas, healing wounds all over his head and an infected right front paw.  He had not yet been neutered.

Rex is a little scared and hisses when first approached, but allows himself to be patted.  We're sure he'll be fine once he realizes he is no longer in any form of danger and that he is with friends.  Stay tuned . . .

I'm interested.  How do I meet this cat?

"Penguin" came to us on April 12, 2017 from Hartland.  His owner was moving into a nursing home and Penguin had no options at all.  He was born about April 12, 2007.  He displayed healed injuries to his ear and tail and he will require some dental work, but he deserves to continue a life of love and care.

Penguin is a nice little boy who would like a quiet home in which to retire.  He asks nothing more than a little love, cuddling, a warm bed and food.  Please come meet him.

Day 1 (2013)


Look at me now!!

Meet "Ophelia," who came back to us at DunRoamin' on May 2, 2017.  She originally came to us on November 4, 2013 from Somerville, NB, where she had no one to care for her.  As a result, she was thin, had fleas, pus in both ears, a polyp in her right ear, missing teeth, a bloody nasal discharge and her eyes were running.  She was immediately accepted by DunRoamin' and she was provided with the care she needed and deserved.  Her ears required amputation due to the damage they had sustained.  Ophelia was born sometime in the year 2004.

Ophelia was adopted by a family in Plaster Rock where she lived the life of Riley.  She was loved and very well cared for, but due to family circumstances she came back to us on May 2, 2017.  She is a very affectionate cat who loves people and loves to be brushed.  She particularly loves to watch TV with you if you'll let her lay on your lap!  She also loves to talk and will do so all the time!  Ophelia tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV+) - please click on the link below to learn all about it.

** FIV is contagious to other cats through blood and saliva.  It is reasonably difficult to spread, however, and now believed to be mostly spread through deep bite wounds.  Obviously it would be ideal if FIV-positive cats only lived with other FIV-positive cats, but currently some of the large rescue centers in the US have been studying multi-cat households with FIV-positive cats living with FIV-negative cats and have found the risk to the non-FIV cats to be very small, assuming that the cats are all spayed/neutered and used to living in groups (ie:  not as likely to fight).  

Please read about FIV here.

"Spartacus" came to us from the Plaster Rock area on May 2, 2017.  He is a beautiful little boy - a true gentleman.  He loves to be petted and particularly loves his ears, cheeks and chin scratched.  He is not so much a "pickin' up cat," but he is very affectionate.  Spartacus was born about August 2, 2014.

Spartacus tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), but he is a very healthy, happy, affectionate boy.  FIV cats can live long and happy lives, especially if they are monitored closely for such things as upper respiratory infection (colds) or dental disease.  Please read about FIV below and consider taking one of these beautiful cats home - they're perfect!.

"Bridgeo"came back to DunRoamin' on May 2, 2017.  This beautiful orange tabby boy originally came to us on July 12, 2012 from Woodstock where he had been found hanging around an apartment building.  He appeared to be skinny and sick had no one to care for him.  Bridgeo was adopted on September 12, 2012 but was returned due to circumstances unrelated to him personally.  He is a sweetheart.

Bridgeo was born about May 2, 2008.  He is extremely affectionate and loves to give head bonks!  Bridgeo has been diagnosed with diabetes but is very healthy.  He requires an injection twice daily, but it is simply done and he has no problem at all with it!  He does not require special food - he can eat anything!  If you're interested in giving this little boy a home, please drop in and meet him.  You will fall in love - that's a promise!

I'm interested.  How do I meet this cat?

"Lois" came back to us on May 2, 2017.  She originally came to us on July 25, 2012 from Lakeville, NB, where she was discovered in the middle of a paved road.  She was disoriented and required help.  It was learned that she had cataracts on both eyes, so she could not see exactly where she was.  Lois was born about August 9, 2002.

Lois was adopted to a family in Plaster Rock, NB on September 1, 2012, where she lived happily.  She is now back at DunRoamin' and is hoping for a compassionate family to offer her a quiet home for her remaining years.  Although she cannot see, she learns to find her way around very quickly and sometimes it's easy to forget that she is blind.  She acclimatizes quickly and is soon wandering around on her own very confidently.  She is very loving and affectionate and especially loves men.  She likes to sleep on the bed with her human so she can be close to them.

If you can offer Lois a quiet home where she can live out her remaining years, please give us a call.  Lois is hoping to have a family very soon.

"Ava" came back to DunRoamin' on May 2, 2017.  She originally came to us on April 29, 2010 from Mount Pleasant, NB, where she was found on the side of the road by a lady who was delivering mail.  Ava's nose had been torn off, she had fleas, was cold, thin, and dehydrated.  It appeared she had been thrown from a car.  Ava was born about February 1, 2010, so she was just a baby.

Ava likes to be petted, but on her own terms!  She is lovable and has a great personality.  She gets along fine with most cats and is doing well with us at DunRoamin'.  Please come meet her!

Day 1

Look at me now!!

"Gunnar" came to us on May 6, 2017 from Upper Brighton where he had been trying to survive near a potato house.  He had been rescued from a dog attack but had nowhere to go from there.  Gunnar was born about May 5, 2015. 

It is felt that Gunnar may have belonged to someone at some point, because he is happy to be around humans.  He is cuddly and purrs to show his gratitude for the medical assistance provided to him.  He was very lean, not yet neutered and was FULL of fleas.  He also had ear mites and abrasions behind both ears from scratching at them in an attempt to relieve the discomfort and pain they caused.  He had a healing wound on his right hip, a bite wound, an eye infection, sinusitis from an upper respiratory infection and he also had a defect on the ride side of his abdominal wall, probably the result of the attack by the dog from which he was rescued. 

Gunnar is a very affectionate cat.  He is small in stature but huge in love!  He is ready, willing and able to go to a loving home - he can't wait!!

Day 1


Day 24

"Mister" came to us on May 6, 2017, found by a young man while riding his side-by-side near Red Bridge, NB, well after dark.  Mister was hungry, dehydrated, full of ear mites and fleas and was not neutered.  He was all alone near a ski-doo trail in the woods a very great distance from any help.  He was born about May 6, 2016. 

Mister is fortunate to have been found by someone who cared enough to bring him for help.  One of his rescuers drove 15 minutes down a dirt road to meet Mister's original rescuer who transported him out of the deep woods on his side-by-side to ensure he would receive the medical assistance he required.  What huge hearts!  Thank you for bringing him to us!

Mister is a sweet little guy who will most probably sleep for days, now that he knows he's safe, warm and has lots of good food to catch up on.  He is very grateful to have been rescued and he's very social - obviously has been with people before.  He's had a pretty bad case of upper respiratory infection, as you can see in the photos, but stay tuned - he's getting better quickly day by day with all the love, care and medical attention he's now getting!

Siegas and her best friend Aurele

"Aurele" and "Siegas" returned to us on May 7, 2017.  They originally came to us on July 2, 2017 when Aurele, his brother Yanic and friend Siegas were rescued by the NB SPCA.  Aurele was born about July 1, 2013.  Siegas was born about July 1, 2015.

All three cats were in dire need of medical attention.  All were very thin - you could feel nothing but fur and bones when patting them.  They all had ear mites, were dehydrated and had varying degrees of conjunctivitis (inflammation of the eyelid and moist tissues of the eye) which displayed in redness, irritation and swelling.  They also had sinusitis (inflammation of the nasal passages) which displayed in a raspy and noisy breathing pattern.  They also had sneezing fits which discharged large amounts of mucus.  Fortunately, with lots of medical intervention, they all became 100% healthy again.  Aurele was adopted to a home in Woodstock on November 27, 2016,  and Siegas joined him on December 28, 2016, but came back to us as their family could no longer keep them due to extenuating family circumstances.

Aurele loves to eat and he loves to sleep!  He is extremely laid back and loving, and he will purr if you just look at him!  He has a very loud and extremely unique purr that sounds like a freight train - you'd have to hear it to believe it, and it will definitely make you smile!  He loves his friend Siegas and they love to  play together with anything that is not bolted down!  He lives with a medium-sized dog who does not phase him in the least, and he is very patient with his three-year old human toddler. 

Siegas was initially timid, but soon learned to seek attention.  She loves to settle onto your lap for a snuggle and isn't shy to remind you if your pats get lazy.  She is more energetic than Aurele and loves to catch him off guard with a playful pounce.  She stays clear of her human toddler as she doesn't like sudden movements and shows little interest in the family dog unless he's sound asleep, at which time she likes to wake him with a sniff of his ears!  If she's not napping, no one should be!!  We hope to find a home generous enough to welcome both these beautiful cats.  They love each other, have never been separated to our knowledge, and after all they've been through, they'd love to remain together.

Day 1


Look at me now!!

 

"Dramah"came to us on May 12, 2017 from the Carleton Co-Op where she was a stray who had, no doubt, been dropped off to fend for herself.  The large and busy parking lot is a dangerous place and staff had tried to catch her for some time.  She had given birth to at least two litters, none of whom had survived.

When Dramah finally allowed herself to be captured, she was not in good shape.  She had the general assortment of parasites such as fleas, worms, etc, and a very bad case of upper respiratory infection.  She is much better now, thanks to medical intervention.

Dramah really wanted to trust people and she has come a very long way.  She loves to be patted picked up and cuddled and dreams only of a warm, safe, loving home in the very near future.

"Spoken for!!"

"Amorah" came to us on May 15, 2017, from Jacksonville where she and eight siblings were found on the side of the road.  One of her brothers, Sampson, did not survive.  You can read about him on our Pet Memorials page.

Amorah had severe ear mites and a large abscess on her side.  She was treated and is doing exceptionally well.  She was born about March 15, 2017 and is a going concern!  She loves to run, play and cuddle in her foster home where she rules the roost (if you can catch her - she is so full of joy!!)  She's very loving and very entertaining.   You'll love her!!

"Acacia" came to DunRoamin' on May 15, 2017 from the Holmesville area.   She had had kittens, one of whom did not survive.  Her surviving kitten, Tetris, (see below) came with her forhelp.  She had a bad upper respiratory infection and required some dental work.  She was born about May 16, 2015.

Acacia is a shy little girl who loves nothing more than to be petted.  She is not a fan of being picked up, but will curl up beside you for some snuggle time.  She initially took some time to warm up to her foster mother, but she's really come out of her shell.  She loves to play with her feather toy, and especially enjoys fresh catnip from the garden!  She loves Tetris and they love to play together.

I'm interested.  How do I meet this cat?


Day 1


Look at me now!!

"Tetris" came to us on May 15, 2017 from Holmesville where he had been born to his mom, Acacia (see above).  One of his siblings did not survive.  Tetris was born about May 1, 2017, so was only about two weeks old.

Tetris is fostered by a veterinary technician to ensure that he has the care he needs to become strong and healthy.  He's very lucky to have this opportunity, and we're very grateful to his foster mom.  Tetris is eating wet food very well on his own, and loves to play non-stop, especially with his toys and his mom.  He is already litter box trained and is very adventurous.  When he is finally tired out, his favourite place to fall asleep is on your lap.  He's a real sweetheart!

Day 1

Look at me now!!

"ChitChat" came to DunRoamin' on May 30, 2017 from Jacksonville where he had been discovered on the porch of a lady who observed that he needed help.  Upon examination, it was noted that he was emaciated, dehydrated, had ear mites and had quills in his mouth, neck, lips, front feet and above his eye.  ChitChat was born about July 30, 2016.

All ChitChat's needs were addressed and he was neutered as well.  He was tested for FIV and FeLV and Chit Chat tested positive for FeLV.  Due to the fact that FeLV is contagious to other cats, Chit Chat should live as the only cat in the household, or perhaps with another FeLV+ cat.  You can read about FeLV here.

ChitChat is a very nice boy who is grateful to be pain-free, warm and have food in his belly.  He's already eating, happy to have the quills removed from his mouth.  How painful that must have been!  No wonder he was so skinny!  He didn't even weigh five pounds!  We'll keep you up to date as we learn more about this beautiful cat.  He'd really love to have a home and family to care for him. 

I'm interested.  How do I meet this cat?

 

Cats who have been diagnosed with FeLV can live long and healthy lives as loving family pets.

Please read about FeLV here.

 

"Hemo" came back to DunRoamin' due to health issues in his adoptive family.  He was born about 2006 and is a handsome and loving little boy.  He loves affection and will sit for hours if you'll just scratch his ears!  His big ol' eyes hold more love than you can imagine!

Upon routine examination, blood was discovered in his urine and bladder stones were the culprits.  The stones have been removed and he's now perfectly fine!  He hopes for a home soon.  Please come meet him.  You won't find a more affectionate orange tabby!

I'm interested.  How do I meet this cat?

 

"Oasis" came to us on the evening of June 7, 2017 from the Grafton area.  She was born about May 10, 2017, so was only about a month old, although she was very tiny.  Oasis had a bad upper respiratory infection, an eye infection, a distended abdomen (probably due to parasites), feces in the fur on her hind end and a very raw and inflamed bum.

Oasis was cared for by two very attentive veterinary technicians who gave her their all, as they always do.  She received a bath, food, warmth and lots of loving.  She was started on antibiotics and pain medictions which helped immensely.  She is currently fostered by another veterinary technician who will ensure that she gets round-the-clock care so that any medical requirements can be immediately addressed.  Her foster mom reports that she is sassy at times (imagine!!) and snuggly at other times and, as you can see by the photo below, she loves her canine foster sister, Lettie!  She is a very fortunate little girl, as are all those DunRoamin'.

Oasis is doing well, thanks to the care and love given her by her foster family. Thanks again, Kate and Jeff, you are priceless!

Day 1


Look at me now!!

"Zedd" came to us from Beechwood on June 9, 2017.  He was a stray whom a lady had been feeding for a couple of years but he had never come in the house.  She noticed that he was limping and appeared to be injured.

He was examined and found to have open wounds on all legs - he must have been through something terrible!  Zedd was initially terrified, but is doing much better.  His wounds have been cleaned, he is on medication, will be neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and we'll see how he does.  He is a beautiful boy!

I'm interested.  How do I meet this cat?

"Lochlyn" - cuteness overload!  Lochlyn came to us through the NB SPCA on June 14, 2017.  She had been found near Jackson Falls, NB, and two of her siblings were already dead.  She was born about May 15, 2017.

Lochlyn will be vaccinated, spayed, tested for FIV and FeLV, etc, in the very near future.  She is very vocal with a raspy, "pay attention to me NOW!!" meow - very large for such a little one.  She is hesitant when she first meets people but is quickly overcoming that!  She likes to be held and cuddled, and she especially loves her beautiful home-made bed courtesy of her friend Judy who made it especially for her, knowing that she had lost her siblings and might like to feel warm, safe and secure.  Thanks, Judy, it's perfect!!  Thanks also to Lochlyn's foster mother for taking her in while she awaits all her vaccines so that she can join other cats!  She is fostered with three dogs, too, so she's learning to love them also.  She also loves kids!!
