"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 ear mites 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!!

"Bristle," Pounce, Blitz and Breeze came to us on January 9, 2014  from the Perth-Andover area and were loving cats who had been through a lot.  Blitz and Breeze have since been adopted, and sadly, Pounce passed away on December 30, 2017.  Bristle is still waiting for a home.  They were born about January 1, 2013.  They were all scared and confused, but became accepting of love, hugs and pats.  Bristle was easily the most outgoing and she loved to be patted, picked up and cuddled.  She really misses her brother, Pounce.

Bristle is still waiting for a home after four full years.  She loves other cats, loves to just sit and be cuddled and loves kittens.   Bristle has been waiting a long time.  She would just like to have a home and family of her own where she can live happily ever after.  It's her turn - please come meet her.  Perhaps you can make her dream come true.

"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 ear mites 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!

"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 soon accepted that they were among friends.  Chyler has come a long way and now enjoys a good pat as well as anyone!  She's looking forward to one day having a home and family of her own.

"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!  She was born about April 18, 2013

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.

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.  She's come a very long way since she came to us more than a year ago and would like to have a chance at a home and family of her own.  She has experienced some medical problems in the last few months but is almost 100% well again and hoping to get back to her foster home or a permanent home soon.

I'm interested.  How do I meet these kittens?

"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 January 10, 2018 and having been with us for more than 14 months, Lemur is doing just 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!  He would love to have a home by himself or with  one of his best friends, Isaac or Deke with whom he frequently sleeps intertwined.  He is a beautiful boy who loves attention and hopes to have his very own family soon.

Spoken for!

"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, so he was treated and was soon fine again.  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 especially loves kittens.

Abner is hoping for a family to come take him home.  He'd love to have another cat with whom to cuddle, too, if at all possible.

"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 moved from the area.  The temperature was -35*C that day 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 outdoors 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 his vet at teh Florenceville Veterinary Clinic and he appeared to be in decent shape.  He was born about December 15, 2008, so he was about eight years old and was already neutered.

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.

Look at me now! I can fit in my sweater!!
Wilson - down from 25 lbs to 18 lbs!
Way to go, Wilson!!!


Wilson all dressed up - just waiting
to go to his forever home!!

"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 all ten 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!

Upon his return to us, Wilson weighed approximately 25 pounds, a weight that was very detrimental to his physical health.  After a complete physical exam by his favourite vet, she prescribed a Calorie Control diet from Royal Canin.  He wasn't too happy about that at first, but it's what he needed and he's done a great job at losing weight!  Thanks to Sarah, Kate and Archie for helping him stick to his diet - it has made a huge difference for his health!  As of October, 2017, he is down to about 16 pounds and he's feeling great!!   Way to go, Wilson!! 

Wilson is a very nice boy who loves people.  He is extremely loving and friendly, loves his belly rubs and especially loves to lay across someone's lap.  He is not all that impressed with dogs, however.  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 for now, but has no other restrictions at all!!

"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 being tested for FIV and FeLV.  His hind legs are bowed a bit like a cowboy's, but he has no trouble getting around at all - he's just built that way!  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!  He has recently begun to have episodes which may be the result of a nerve problem, but he's being assessed regularly and we'll keep you up to date.

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 had no apparent fractures but was subsequently diagnosed with a possible spinal injury.  He was prescribed pain medication and underwent laser treatment to help him recover.  He is a sweet boy and he was soon much brighter and eating like a little piggy and was much happier.  He's a very nice boy who can't wait to have a home of his very own.  He is currently housed with two other cats (Lemur and Deke whom he loves!) in our food room.  He loves his diet of Royal Canin Hypo-allergenic food.  Please come meet Isaac in his new digs.  He loves it there!!

Look at me now!!

"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 required a little dental work, but that's all done and 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 cuddling, a warm bed and food.  He is very affectionate and comes when called.  He is vocal enough to carry on a full conversation with you if you'd be so inclined!  He is a senior citizen who eats a diet of Royal Canin Mature food and he will give you hours of companionship and love. 

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

"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! Spartacus is currently in the home of a senior citizen as part of our Cats For Seniors program.

** 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.

"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, but due to circumstances beyond her control, she is now back at DunRoamin' and is hoping for a nice 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.  She also will put her paws on your knees to ask to be picked up and hugged.  She is so sweet!

Lois requires medication daily for her eyes, but she takes it easily, knowing how it helps her.  She loves canned food and she gets as much as she wants!  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 and a very generous supporter has donated the cost of her adoption fee!  Thanks, Kyla!!

"Ava" came back to DunRoamin' on May 2, 2017 as her family was moving and not able to take her with them.  She had originally come 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.  The skin on and around 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.  She was adopted to a home in May, 2010, where she enjoyed the company of several other cats and a small dog.

Ava likes to be petted and she's very affectionate once she gets to know you!  She is lovable and has a great personality.  She gets along very well with the many other cats with whom she lives and is doing well with us at DunRoamin, but would really enjoy a home and family of her very own - especially if the home had another cat and maybe even a small dog or two!  She is currently eating a Royal Canin Dental diet due to dental issues she has encountered.  Please come meet her!

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 populated area which could possibly have provided assistance.  He was born about May 6, 2016. 

Mister was 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 treatment he required.  What huge hearts!  Thank you for bringing him to us!

Mister is a sweet little guy who slept for days, once he realized he was safe, warm and had 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 had a pretty bad case of upper respiratory infection, as you can see in the photos, but he's now doing extremely well.  He is fostered by the young man who rescued him.  You're a very lucky boy, Mister!!

"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, who has since been adopted, came with her for help.  She had a bad upper respiratory infection and required some dental work but both have been cared for.  She was born about May 16, 2015.

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

"Luka" came to us on May 24, 2017 from Hartland where his owners were moving and unable to take him with them.  He was born about August 24, 2007, and has the most striking eyes!  He has a great personality and loves to have company.  He lived with is with three other cats and got along well with them.  He also had young children in his previous home, so he's familiar and loves them! 

On January 4, 2018, Luka was invited to be the newest foster cat of a wonderful couple in Grand Falls who had fostered Slater until he was adopted.  We'd like to thank Ashley and Tyler for their wonderful and generous support of our DunRoamin' strays.  Luka is very much at ease and happy to be back in a home environment.  Luka is fully vaccinated, neutered and tested for FIV and FeLV, as are all DunRoamin' cats.  He hopes for a permanent home soon.  Please come meet him.

"Zdeno" came back to us on May 24, 2017 from Hartland where his owners, who adopted him in October, 2013, were moving and unable to take him with them.  He originally came to us on July 25, 2013 from Bairdsville where he was found in a box on the side of the road where his mom and three siblings had just been struck and killed by a vehicle.  He was fortunate to be rescued before he succumbed to the same fate.  He was born about July 10, 2013, so was only a couple of weeks old. 

Zdeno has the most striking eyes!  He has a great personality, lots of energy and loves to have company.  He particularly loves to play with crumpled up paper, and if you crumble something up, he'll come running and attack it if you throw it for him!  He carries it around, pounces on it, and is happiest when he's playing!  He is fully vaccinated, neutered and tested for FIV and FeLV, as are all DunRoamin' cats.  Zdeno tested positive for FIV (please read below), but has absolutely no medical issues.  He hopes for a new home soon.  He is currently fostered with six other cats and he loves them all!  He'd love it if his new home had kids, too - he's addicted to them and will roll and play on the floor with them forever!!  They'll tire out before he will!!  Please come meet him.

** 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.

"Naomi" came to us on May 24, 2017 from Hartland where her owners were moving and unable to take her with them.  She was born about September 4, 2009 and has the most beautiful green eyes!  She has a great personality and loves people. .

Naomi is fully vaccinated, spayed and tested for FIV and FeLV, as are all DunRoamin' cats.  She lives with several other cats and gets along with them very well.  She'd be happy to have a home with other cats, or with just a human or two to play with.  She is also familiar with young children and loves them!  She hopes for a new home soon.  She is very loving and will follow you around and ask for attention.  Her favourite spot would be on your lap watching television or beside your keyboard while you work on your computer.  And of course, she'd love to be able to sleep on your bed at night - she is very affectionate!

"Deke" came to us on May 24, 2017 from Hartland where his owners were moving and unable to take him with them.  He was born about January 12, 2008, and is a beautiful senior gentleman!  He has a great personality and loves to have company.

Deke is fully vaccinated, neutered and tested for FIV and FeLV, as are all DunRoamin' cats.  He hopes for a new home soon.  He is quiet, loving, and appreciates the company of other cats and people!  He currently lives with Isaac and Lemur and we frequently find them wrapped around each other - they're the best of friends.  Please come meet them.

"Xavier" came to DunRoamin' on July 5, 2017 from Morrell Siding where he had been living for about a year.  He had displayed what had appeared to be an injury to his hind end the previous week.   He was surrendered to DunRoamin' so that he could obtain the medical care he required.  Xavier was born about February 14, 2014. 

Xavier was examined and it was learned that he had sustained two hairline fractures in his pelvis and one in his spine, perhaps from being struck by a vehicle.  He was in obvious pain.  His tail was painful and he preferred not to move it, but he was able to pee and poop on his own.  Xavier was given medication for the pain and received all required care, including lots of kennel rest, to ensure that he healed well.  He is anxious to become a family member of some nice family who will keep him indoors and safe.  He had already been neutered and is now be vaccinated, tested for FeLV and FIV.  He has received acupuncture and chiropractic treatment to help him heal.  He is a very lucky boy to have this second chance and we're very grateful!!

Update (January 10, 2018):  Xavier's foster mother reports that he is really friendly and loves to wrestle and play with other cats.  He loves his foster home.  He experienced some problems in December, but his vet tech foster mother is doing wonders . . . and he SO loves her!

He hopes for a permanent family of his own very soon.

"Milton" came to us from the Woodstock area on July 15, 2017.  He had sustained a tail jerk injury as a result of having been struck by a vehicle.   As a result of this injury, at least a portion of his tail had to be removed.  He is able to pee and poop normally and shows no problems at all.  He had lost a pound in a week, but he's since gained it back and is perfectly healthy once again.

Milton is a very nice boy.  He will purr and even though he may have been uncomfortable at first, he was happy to receive pats and scratches from caregivers, knowing that he is being cared for.

Milton is currently in a foster home and is doing extremely well.  He is a real sweetheart.  Milton was born about August 4, 2012.

"Edge" originally came to DunRoamin' on November 6, 2011 from the Woodstock area where she had been found by some people who had just moved to the area and could not care for her.  Edge was dehydrated, was vomiting, had fleas and ear mites had a stomach mass which had to be removed, She was soon perfectly healthy again, thanks to some great medical assistance.  She was born about May 6, 2010.

Edge was fortunate to become a Cats For Seniors cat for quite some time and came back to us on July 21, 2017.  She is a beautiful little girl who would very much like to become someone's best friend again where she can sleep on their bed, lay on their lap and basically live the life of privilege!  She is a very nice little girl!  Come meet her!

Look at me now!!

"Brittany" was mothering several kittens who were only about 16 days old.  She, her friend Anwick who has since been adopted and several of these kittens came to us on August 18, 2017 from the Perth area as they had no one who was able to take care of them..  Anwick and Brittany were both skinny and their babies had so many fleas that they were anaemic.  Several other kittens from that location had already died.  Anwick's and Brittany's kittens were only about 16 days old.  Unfortunately, three of the babies, Thurso, Kintyre and Glasgow, were unable to survive, despite medical intervention.  We thank the vet techs who cared for them and gave their all to help them.  You can read about these three kittens on our Pet Memorials page.

Five kittens were cared for by Brittany.  When needed, their food intake was augmented by syringe feedings by their new foster mother.  They were weighed daily to ensure they gained weight and they all did well!   All kittens eventually received loving homes.  Brittany is still waiting for her turn.  Brittany was born about August 18, 2016 and is a tiny little girl who loves people and other cats immensely.  She loves to rub against her human and is very happy to have lots of attention.  She can't wait to be invited to her very first loving home.

Look at me now!!

"Nicolette" came to us on the afternoon of September 5, 2017 from the Houlton Road area behind Canada Bread in Woodstock where she was a stray who was trying to survive on her own.  She wasn't doing such a great job, as she had an injury to her hind leg and, in addition to the large amount of parasites, she was emaciated and starving.  She was born about January 5, 2017.

Nicolette's injury was treated at the Florenceville Vet Clinic, she was given some nutritious food and provided all additional medical necessities.  She was spayed and vaccinated as soon as she was healthy.  Nicolette is very loving, attentive and friendly, so we suspect that she has had her own home and family at one point in her life, but has had no one to care for her for quite some time, resulting in her poor condition.  It appears that she is going to stay a tiny cat in stature, but her personality is huge.  She loves other cats, people and especially enjoys children.

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

UPDATE:  As of January 12, 2018, Nicolette is doing very well.  She's put on weight with all the constantly-available food and she's very relaxed and loving.  She is very tiny for her age and feels light as a feather when picked up - which she loves!  She'll do anything for a cuddle.  If you're looking for an adoring cuddle cat, she's your girl!  She currently lives with four other cats with whom she gets along very well!

"Andover" came to us from Andover on September 19, 2017.  He had an injury to his left shoulder which resulted in the skin and fur being removed in a palm-sized area.  He was already neutered upon arrival.  He was born about September 19, 2014.

Andover is super friendly.  He likes being picked up and cuddled and will purr for chin rubs and ear scratches!  He can also be a talker when the mood hits him!  His wound is now healed and he's waiting for that family he's always dreamed of.  He'd like to have a home, please.

"Wainwright" came to DunRoamin' from the Woodstock area on October 1, 2017.  He was a stray who had been seen in the area for about a month.  Recently he had been observed to be injured and had no one to care for him.  Wainwright had abscesses on his right front and right hind leg - those must hurt!  He also had ear mites (not a pleasant experience).  He was born about March 1, 2016.

Wainwright was scared, of course, but when softly patted he soon relaxed and even purred a little.  It took him a very short period of time to realize that he was now safe and would have nothing but the best of care now.  He quickly became a loving, head butting, playful and affectionate little boy!  We hope he can go to a warm, loving home so that he'll never have to experience the pain of injury or loneliness again. He currently lives with 10 other cats whom he gets along with just fine!  Please come meet him - you'll fall in love!

"Waffles" came to us on November 1, 2017.  He has urinary issues which required immediate and intensive veterinary treatment.  Waffles is a beautiful little orange tabby who was born about November 1, 2012.  He had developed urinary problems which required immediate and extreme surgery to correct. 

UPDATE - January 13, 2018:  Waffles is doing much better.  He is very affectionate and loves people.  He'll do anything for a pat and loves to head butt!  Waffles received reassessments to ensure he continues to progress.  He will require a prescription diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food to ensure no further problems will develop, but that's not a problem at all!

"Flanders" came to us on November 7, 2017 from the Grand Falls area.  He was extremely constipated and required medical assistance immediately.  He was born about October 4, 2017.  His vet determined that his bowels were impacted, probably as a result of his diet.  He is now on a fibre diet to help his stool become normal.  We're hoping he'll be okay.

 

As of January 12, 2017, he's doing much better.  His vet will recheck his progress and we'll keep you up to date.  He is a sweet little boy who is getting the best help possible and we're grateful that he is with us and able to receive this help, thanks to all the loyal supporters of DunRoamin'.  If all goes well, he soon may be ready for adoption, but in the meantime he's grateful for the love and care of his team of caregivers.  He is a black kitten with a bit of brown mixed in which makes him very cute and unique!  He is especially loving.  And cute!  And adorable!  And sweet!

Flanders' favourite vet is working on getting him 100% again.  He's had a rough go, but through it all is loving, playful and affectionate.  He is very aware he has friends and knows he feels so much better!  He is an amazingly wonderful little kitten and we're happy to know him!


Flanders is named for Flanders Fields in which ". . . poppies blow, between the crosses, row on row . . ."  This poem was written by Col John McCrae on May 3, 1915, during the second battle of Ypres, Belgium to honour his best friend, one of many lost during World War I.  They will not be forgotten . . .

"Chaps" came to us on November 15, 2017 from Riverbank where she had been found near a barn.  She was thin, starving, had fleas, tartar on her teeth and was extremely matted with burdocks.  She had pulled much of her fur off her hind end in an attempt to relieve herself of the extremely thick and uncomfortable mats.

Chaps was born about November 15, 2015.  She was not totally comfortable with being with us at first, but certainly is now!  She has settled in her warm bed and is grateful for the plentiful, delicious and nutritious food and all the water she can drink - remember, she was starving!!  She is a beautiful buff tortoiseshell cat who is already extremely appreciative of her surroundings.  She would like to be warm, safe and fed in the comfort of a family this winter and for the rest of her life.  She had already been spayed upon her arrival, so she must have had a family at one time.  She'd really love to have one again.  She currently lives with about 10 other cats and she gets along really well with them all.  She is sweet, loving and affectionate.  Please come meet her.

Look at me now!!

"Tundra" came to us on November 17, 2017 from Woodstock where she was a stray who was living outside on her own, along with several others who were, thankfully, being fed by a kind lady who realized Tundra needed help.  She was born about January 17, 2017 and weighed only 5 pounds and 2 ounces.  She had diarrhea, was dehydrated, had ear mites and had tartar on her teeth.

Tundra was malnourished and was put on a fibre diet to ensure she did not lose more nutrients or fluids.  Her urine output has been monitored and she's doing very well since she's had some good food, water and medical care, as well as lots of affection.  As tiny as she is, she may not have been able to hold out much longer.  She thanks her rescuer for all she does to help stray, abandoned and starving cats in her area. 

UPDATE:  As of January 13, 2018, Tundra is doing well.  She has put on weight and loves people, now that she is among caring friends.  She loves her warm bed and loves people.  She can't wait to be able to go to a family of her own.  She is dealing with a bit of a cold right now, but she's getting appropriate medical care and she'll soon be 100% fine.  She can't wait to get her very own family!

"Coraline" came to us on November 22, 2017 from Beechwood with her mom and five siblings.  They were at least the second litter born to Brenna, an unspayed mother.  They had no one to care for them.  The kittens were born about October 31, 2017.  Coraline has two brothers, Coal and Noir, and three sisters, Tarot, Kellas and Keera.

Coraline is mostly black with white front paws, white socks on her back legs and white on her chin and chest.  She weighed 12 ounces upon arrival.  She is very curious and sniffs EVERYTHING - gotta know what you're getting into!!

The kittens will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and will be ready for homes the end of January, 2018.  They're very excited!!

"Noir" came to us on November 22, 2017 from Beechwood with his mom and five siblings.  They were at least the second litter born to Brenna (see above), an unspayed cat who had no one to care for her or her family.  The kittens were born about October 31, 2017.  Noir has one brother, Coal, and four sisters, Keera, Coraline, Tarot and Kellas.

Noir has a white mustache, greyish legs and white on his feet.  He weighed only 10 ounces upon arrival, but he plans on becoming a big, strong, loving and handsome boy.  As of January 10, he weighed two pounds and five ounces, so he's making good on his plans!!  Noir is very playful and loves to sleep on his back so that you can take the opportunity to rub his belly.  He instantly purrs when you do that!

"Lotus" came to us on November 22, 2017, from the Bath area where she was a stray who had been living in the area for some time.  She was covered in fleas and had had at least one litter of kittens.  She was also cold, scared and hungry.  She will be spayed, vaccinated and treated for all her medical needs, as are all DunRoamin' cats.  Lotus was born about November 22, 2015.

Examination by her vet revealed that Lotus had recently had kittens and her rescuer was dedicated to finding them so they could be rescued, too.  It's extremely cold already at this time of year, there isn't much warm shelter around and there are way too many foxes, raccoons and dogs in the area, as well as traffic - all of which are extremely dangerous to cats who have no home or family.  Fortunately, Lotus and her family had a very kind gentleman who would do everything he could to help them.  Please read about her kittens below who were found two days later.

 

One thing we can tell you for certain is that this little girl is as beautiful as the flower after which she is named.

"Charity" came to us from Temperance Vale on December 4, 2017.  She was a stray who was being fed and sheltered but no one was able to care for her injuries.  Examination by her vet revealed that she was born about December 4, 2009.  Her injuries consisted of a broken jaw and all the wonderful things that go with not being able to eat.  Her mouth was infected from the injury and emitted a very strong odour of decay.  She was quickly cleaned up, x-rayed and has begun the process of treatment to help her.  Charity tested positive for Feline Leukemia.

On December 5, 2017, she underwent surgery to have her jaw wired back together.  Charity has much to overcome, but she is doing just fine.  She was initially timid and unsure of us, but it didn't take long to realize she's safe, warm and has lots of friends.  We'll take good care of her, and we'll keep you up to date.  She's had a rough go, but she is in good hands!  We wish her the best.

 

Update:  as of January 12, Charity is doing much better.  She's eating up a storm of wet food while her jaw heals.  She's much more pain free and comfortable and is well enough that next week she will be reassessed so that she may be spayed, the wires removed from her jaw and her ear reassessed for polyps.  She's doing very well, and we'll report more as we learn it.

Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) is found in cats worldwide.  It may be spread by saliva, nasal secretions, urine, feces and milk from infected cats.  Cat-to-cat transfer of the virus may occur from a bite wound, during mutual grooming and (though rarely) through the shared use of litter boxes and feeding dishes.  Transfer may also take place from an infected mother cat to her kittens, either before they are born or while they are nursing.

"Sheldon" came back to DunRoamin' on December 22, 2017 from the Fredericton area as he had started to mark furniture.  This usually indicates a medical problem, most of which are very minor in nature and can be easily addressed.  Sheldon was placed on antibiotics and was reassessed five days later which showed that he's just fine - the antibiotics had done their work and he's perfectly healthy once again!  He has not offered to do anything other than be a perfect little boy!

Sheldon was born about March 20, 2014 and is happy to have a warm place to reside, cat and human friends and a chance at the life a loving cat deserves.  His most heartfelt dream is to be adopted to a home where he'll be spoiled rotten!  Isn't that all cats' wish? Sheldon was originally diagnosed with a urinary problem which is easily defeated with a diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food to ensure he does not block.  He and his friend Boone (see below) both eat this diet.  We've had dozens of cats who have been placed on Royal Canin Urinary S/O food and we have never once had a recurrence!  It works great!!

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

"Boone" was returned to us on December 22, 2017, from Woodstock where his family was unable to undertake his care due to personal reasons.  Boone is a very nice boy who was born about October 21, 2013 and has been waiting for that perfect home since he came to us on April 21, 2015.

Due to the fact that his body does not process some food well and tends to develop crystals in his urine, he must eat a diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food only.  We have had dozens of cats on this diet and have had no recurrence of problems once they have been placed on this diet.

Boone is an extremely affectionate cat.  He loves to be with people and will follow you around from room to room to ensure he always has people to whom he can express his love of life!  While on his prescription diet he has experienced absolutely no problems whatsoever!  Thanks, Royal Canin, for your S/O food!  We hope for a family for Boone - he really would love to know the security and love of a permanent home.  Please come meet him.

"Sleigh" came to us on December 22, 2017 from Jacksonville where she and Douglas Furr (see below), whom we believe may be her son, had been living under a deck for at least two months.  A lady was giving them food but could not provide shelter, a home or the medical care she required and the temperatures have been cold - at least -25*C.  Sleigh was born about December 22, 2009.

Sleigh was diagnosed with several issues:  she had tapeworms, her upper left canine tooth was fractured and she exhibited tartar and gingivitis on her other teeth.  She had marked sinusitis and purulent nasal discharge due to upper respiratory infection.  She also was full of fleas and tapeworms and had never been spayed.  And to add to that long list, she has otitis (inflammation) and a polyp in her left ear.  This will require surgery to remove once she is healthy enough.  Once she's feeling better, she'll also be vaccinated and spayed.  She tested negative for both FIV and FeLV.  She is a very fortunate little girl to receive help.  At the age of eight years, she deserves a much better life than what it appears she has experienced to date.

Sleigh is accepting the best of care.  She is friendly and grateful for all the help she is receiving.  She purrs and kneads in her warm, safe, soft bed and eagerly tucks into all food provided.  She has a very lovely personality and can't wait to continue her journey to a loving home.  She has been spayed and her vaccines have been started.  She is medication for her ears and is doing well. Her best wish is for a loving family who will care for her so the rest of her life can be what she deserves.

"Douglas Furr" came to DunRoamin' on the morning of December 22, 2017, along with his mother Sleigh (see above) from the Jacksonville area where they had been striving to survive for at least two months.  A lady was providing food and water, but could not provide warm shelter, and the temperatures have been below -25^C.  Douglas Furr was immediately examined by his new vet and diagnosed with upper respiratory infection, tartar on his teeth, fleas, and he was intact.  He has received the best of medical care to combat all these afflictions.  He has been neutered and received all required medications and he's doing much better.

Douglas Furr is happy to be warm and safe.  He gratefully accepts his food and warm bed and is also accepting of pats, cuddles and scratches.  It's been very cold out there and he's happy to be safe and warm at last.  We hope he'll have a new home soon.  He was born about December 22, 2014.  It's about time he had a family!!  Douglas Furr's most favourite thing in the entire world is to have his belly rubbed.  If you're someone who can dedicate several hours a day to doing just this, Douglas would be in heaven!  But he'd also be happy to have a few short rubs a few times daily, also!  He has beautiful large eyes and they radiate gratefulness. When he's really happy, he sticks his tongue out!  He is a real sweetheart!  Please come meet him.

"Waif" came to DunRoamin' on January 3, 2017 from Centreville where she had been hanging out around an apartment building where pets were not allowed.   No one was able to help her and she had supposedly been injured. Temperatures those days were around -25*C - not a good time to be outdoors for anyone.

Waif was examined at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic and found to be in decent shape - the injury was an old healed one.  She was treated for earmites and tested negative for both FIV and FeLV and was spayed on January 8, 2017.  She is very grateful to be warm and have a soft bed and consistent nutritious food in her belly.  She's most grateful for the heat, though, and thanks us at every opportunity with head butts, purrs and loving gazes.  Waif is only about a year old, born about January 3, 2017.  She is friendly and affectionate and cannot wait to have her own family.  Please come meet her.

"Peace" was returned to us on January 20, 2018 because she had bitten her owner while she was brushing her.  Peace originally came to us on November 4, 2016, when she was live-trapped at an abandoned home in Hartland where she was trying to survive on her own.  Several other cats were also rescued from this location, including Escobar, Juan and Pablo.

Peace was initially very timid but soon learned to trust us.  She loves kids and was named "Peace" due to the grey and white markings on her head which form a peace sign.

Peace is timid on her first day back with us, as expected, but already accepts pats and ear scratches.  We're sure she'll be fine.  We'll keep you up to date.  If you like long-haired, beautiful green-eyed cats, please come meet her - you'll fall in love!
