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 eight years now.  She was not a cuddle cat and was not very comfortable around humans but was happy to have the company of other cats and to have a warm and safe home with someone to watch over her.  Gooch has a family with DunRoamin' - she's loved and will always be cared for.  During the past year or so, she has changed her mind about most humans and actually enjoys are company and a few head scratches!

On August 31, 2021, she went to be a foster kitty with a DunRoamin' friend who has known her for years and finally has the opportunity to give her a home for the time being.  Congratulations, Gooch!!  Have a great time!

"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 greatly reduces the number of seizures and he 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!   He's perfect!  You can meet him by visiting DunRoamin' - he's our greeter in our front office!

"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.

"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 repaired by his friends at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic 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 quickly rescued from the same fate 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.

"Trickle" and her sisters Chyler and Bliss all came to DunRoamin' on November 18, 2015 from Grand Falls.  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.   We couldn't allow that to happen to such tiny babies.

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 realized they were among friends.  As of January 6, 2016, they cuddled, purred and played with the best of them!   They would like a quiet home where they can enjoy the company of someone who would be fine with cats who are not snuggle bugs, but still enjoy being in the room with people.  Trickle has been fostered with her friend Ennis in Currie Siding since February 5, 2017 and they're both grateful for a temporary home environment.  They're still waiting for that permanent family!

"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 and likes to spend time with humans.  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.

"Milton" came to us from the Woodstock area on July 15, 2017 where he had sustained a tail jerk injury as a result of having been struck by a vehicle.   As a result of this injury, 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 was 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.

"Chip" returned to us on February 27, 2018.  He had originally come to DunRoamin' on June 29, 2012 from Bath, NB where he had come to a home displaying injuries.  He had ear mites and a wound on his feet and the back of his right front leg, all of which were treated by his new friends at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  He was adopted to a home on January 15, 2014 where he lived happily.  In February, 2018, Chip began to urinate inappropriately and was diagnosed with bladder stones.  He underwent surgery to remove them and was soon doing well.  Chip was born about July 1, 2009 and is a real sweetheart.  He loves to lay upside down and have his belly rubbed and he's a great purrer!

Chip underwent a second surgery to remove additional bladder stones and his penis had to be removed as a result of damage inflicted by the stones.  He is just fine now - just ask Chazzy (see the top of this page) - he had the same surgery years ago.  As a matter of fact, he tells us he's just perfect!!

Chip requires a prescription diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food to ensure he does not develop further problems, and we've had dozens of cats on this diet - there have been absolutely no problems or recurrences once they're on this diet!

Chip is a beautiful little boy who hopes to have the opportunity to live in a family situation again.  Please come meet him!

"Abel" came back to us on April 20, 2018 from Woodstock where he had been adopted in December 2015.  He had originally come to us from Lakeville in 2012 where he was one of several cats who were hanging around a home but had no one to care for him.  He, his brother Abner and sister Avis came to us all at the same time.  Able and Avis have since been adopted.

Abel is a sweet little boy who was originally very timid and needed his brother Abner to feel safe, but he's now very confident and secure and happy on his own.  Abner is eating a diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food to make sure that he is healthy as he has a tendency to block if he eats other foods.  We have had dozens of cats who have been placed on this diet and it works extremely well - no problems at all, as long as they eat this diet.

Abel is currently in a foster home where he will be loved, cuddled and doted upon until he is chosen for a permanent home!  He was born about April 1, 2012.  Please come meet him - you'll fall in love!

"Splinter" came to us on May 8, 2018 from Glassville where he'd been part of a colony of feral cats that was trying survive.  Splinter was born about August 7, 2010, so was about eight years old.  In his life he had sustained several wounds and injuries.  Today he displayed a very badly infected ear and he needed help.

Splinter's ear was cleaned and he was placed on antibiotics to ensure the infection would not spread further.  He wasn't sure what to think of us at first, but this old guy is happy to be warm, safe and have food delivered upon demand.  He is doing well, and although he was initially a little timid and quiet, he's on his way to realizing that we'll take good care of him.  He is currently fostered with six other cats in Florenceville and he gets along with them fine.  He's still a little timid of humans, though, but loves his toys and to sleep on his human's bed!  He hopes to have a permanent safe, warm and loving permanent home soon.  He's tired of those long, cold, hungry winters and has paid his dues many times over.  He likes to be patted and have his belly rubbed, but mostly he loves having his back scratched at the base of his tail!  Elevator butt!!  Splinter tested positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus).  Please read about it below.   He's currently fostered in a home with six other cats in Florenceville.

"Quarry" came to us on July 28, 2018 from Newbridge where she was found on the side of the road, possibly having been struck by a vehicle.  She had cuts and scratches on her face and fluids in her abdomen.  She has received all required medical care and is doing much better as of a month later.  She has been spayed and will be up to date on her vaccines as of mid-September 2018.  She was born about July 28, 2016.

Quarry is timid and will require a very quiet home.  She will most probably not be an affectionate cat but would appreciate a safe, warm and loving place to live.  She has been diagnosed with a condition called "pillow foot" which is an inflammation or swelling in the pads of her feet.  It is not a contagious condition, but it can reoccur or "flare up."  For this reason Quarry must be an indoor cat ONLY to ensure she does not injure her feet and allow the pillow foot to flare.  A mild form is not necessarily uncomfortable but should she be out on her own and the pad swells, splits open or develops ulcers or sores, she would require treatment.  Quarry would like to have a quiet, loving home where she can be cared for to ensure her feet will not flare up again.  She has ongoing medication, but she's fine!  As long as you are not expecting a cuddle cat, she would love to have a quiet home with another cat.  She will live happily and safely in your home but may not (or may - she may surprise us!) be a cat who will ever sit on your lap or cuddle, but she'll definitely be in the room to keep you company.

"Trez" returned to us on December 27, 2018.  He originally came to us on July 13, 2018 from Riverbank, NB where he had been abandoned in a kennel outside the door of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  He had very long nails, ear mites, was not neutered and was terrified.  All these problems were addressed and he quickly became a cuddle cat once he realized he was safe and among friends. 

Trez was adopted on December 15, 2018 to a home in Hartland, but it was reported that he was not happy in that home, so he returned to us.  He developed a bit of an upper respiratory infection (cold) which was quickly treated.  We're all miserable when we're sick, right?  He will probably require a diet of Royal Canin Hypo Allergenic food for life as he displays allergies.  He hopes for a chance at a loving home very soon.  He is very friendly, loving and affectionate.  Please come meet him.

"Hatfield" came to us on February 4, 2019 from the NB SPCA.  He was born about February 4, 2017, so was only about two years old.  Because Hatfield came from a location where Feline Leukemia had been found in other cats, he was segregated and retested on March 18, 2019, at which time it was confirmed that he did not have Feline Leukemia and is perfectly healthy.

Hatfield is a bit timid, but he's learned very quickly that he's safe and sound and that he has many servants who will ensure he has everything he'll need!  He just needs a little more time to come around, and he's doing very well.  Please come meet him!

"Chiffon" returned to us on February 20, 2019 from Plaster Rock where she had been adopted in 2012.  She had been a very well-loved cat in her home, but her family was moving into a special care home and was no longer able to care for her, so she returned to us.

Chiffon is a healthy, happy little girl who is diabetic.  She requires an injection of insulin each morning and evening (which she takes very easily) and eats a diabetic diet, but this is no big deal for her or for her humans and it's inexpensive, so no worries!  She was born about July 25, 2010 and is a very loving, very affectionate and a very happy girl.  She is currently in a foster home with her friends in Bath, but looks forward to having a permanent home very soon.

"Langford" came to DunRoamin' on March 8, 2019 from Woodstock where he had been a stray who had been hanging around for about six months and was being fed and sheltered during the recent cold winter months.  On March 7, 2019 he had appeared with a large bleeding wound on the left side of his neck.  Langford was born about March 8, 2017, so had apparently been surviving on his own for a while.

Langford was delivered immediately to his newest vet friend for the medical intervention he required.  It was learned that Langford had sustained a previous wound on his neck which had abscessed and burst.  Langford was prescribed antibiotics and other required medical care, which he quickly received.  Langford is covered with numerous old fight wounds, indicating that he's had a rough life to date, but all that changed today.  He is very loving and affectionate and is grateful for the warm bed and plentiful food.  He's a social eater who prefers to have company when he eats, so when someone is with him, he eats up a storm of that ever-present banquet!  He'll put on some weight and be fine very soon and he hopes that someone will give him a loving home.  Langford tested positive for FIV.  Please read about FIV and FeLV here.

Frazzle
and
The Strays and Friends of DunRoamin'
would like to thank

Biggie

for volunteering as a blood donor.
This generous and selfless act has given Frazzle
a new chance at a healthy, safe and long life.
We are forever in your debt, Biggie.
Thank you

"Frazzle" came to us from Waterville on the morning of May 13, 2019 where she had been found on a porch at 8 am.  Frazzle could barely move.  She was brought for help and was immediately taken to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic for examination and assistance.  Frazzle was not in good shape.  She was born about May 13, 2017, but weighed only three pounds.

Frazzle was dehydrated, very pale, had halitosis, was emaciated, lethargic, had burdocks matted in her fur and had a purulent discharge coming from her eyes.  A thermometer revealed that her body temperature was also several degrees below normal.  She was very cold.

Frazzle was warmed up, given intravenous fluids, medications and several tests were conducted to determine if her kidneys and other organs were working properly.  Frazzle was so exhausted and weak that, in the next few hours and days, she could barely hold her head up when trying to eat warm food.

On May 14, 2019, Frazzle received a blood transfusion from a generous feline donor which has begun to make a world of difference for her.  Thanks, Biggie!  You saved her life!  Frazzle used the litter box for the first time on May 15 and appears to have the tiniest bit of energy - that's a WONDERFUL sign!

She (and we) would like to thank the Florencevile Veterinary Clinic for their kind and hard work to ensure this little one has a chance at the life she deserves.  We'll keep you up to date on her progress. 

UPDATE:  On May 31, 2019, we learned that Frazzle is improving nicely and is comfortable, happy, purring and content with her huge staff of human servants who wait on her hand and foot, day and night.  In June, she required a feeding tube to be inserted as she declined her meals. As of June 28th, she is eating on her own again and feeling better.  She'll keep the feeding tube for another week just in case she decides she doesn't want to eat again, but she's doing really well!  She hopes she can be well enough to go live with a family soon.

UPDATE 2:  On August 15, 2019, Frazzle was fortunate to go to a foster home where she is treated like a queen and is doing amazingly well!  We'd like to thank her vet tech foster mom - you're amazing!!  Frazzle is a very lucky girl!  She is hoping for a permanent home.

 

Donations in her honour are welcome and are very much appreciated.  Please click here:

"Bronte" came to us on June 6, 2019 from the Oakland area where she had been found to be in poor physical condition and obviously required help.  Bronte was born about December 8, 2018.  Her kittens, Rosamund, Rochester and Eyre (see below) also came with her.  We thank the person who discovered this colony all alone and brought them for help.

Bronte is a little nervous of dogs, so would prefer a home without dogs.  She is playful, loving and energetic.   She'd like to thank her foster families for all they've done for her.  She can't wait to go to a home!  As of October 7, 2019, she was fostered with a wonderful lady in Bath. Thank you!!

DunRoamin' accepted 27 sick/injured/abused/neglected strays during the month of May, 2019 and accepted an additional 60 strays between June 6 - 26, 2019 who will require much care.  Monetary, litter and food donations are very much appreciated so that we may continue to care for these beautiful strays. 

The Florenceville Veterinary Clinic will continue to make sure these cats are brought back to health.  DunRoamin' will continue to provide for medical care, make sure they are safe, loved and find the homes they deserve.  We are so very grateful to our supporters who enable us to help these beautiful cats and dogs.

"Trinity" came to us from Oakland on June 10, 2019 along with nine more cats, as well as 16 others who had arrived four days earlier, for a total of 26 from that location where they had been living in and around a home but had little care.  All had experienced exposure to fleas and ear mites and many had such bad upper respiratory infections that they required intensive medical care (please read about them above and below).

Trinity was born about June 10, 2017, so may be a sibling to Jubilee and Asterisk (already adopted).  She is a beautiful buff multi mother cat who was initially timid, but is doing well as she becomes accustomed to us.  She had been exposed to upper respiratory infection, fleas and ear mites, but has been treated for all.  She is also spayed, fully vaccinated and tested for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus and Feline Leukemia.  She's looking forward to a nice home where she'll be safe, warm, fed and loved.  She currently lives in a home with two dogs whom she does not mind at all.  She may have a tendency to run through open doors, but she always comes back in for food and company.  Her adoptive family should have double doors and be aware that she might try to get out, but as always, our cats must be indoor cats only where they are always safe.  Trinity is doing very well staying indoors, but may attempt a short escape on occasion.

Trinity is the 35th stray accepted by DunRoamin' so far in the month of June.

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

DunRoamin' accepted 27 sick/injured/abused/neglected strays during the month of May, 2019 and accepted an additional 60 strays between June 6 - 26, 2019 who will require much care.  Monetary, litter and food donations are very much appreciated so that we may continue to care for these beautiful strays.

Look at me now!!

"Babbs" came to us on July 15, 2019 from the Florenceville area.  She had been peeing inappropriately and was no longer wanted, so her future became precarious.  She was surrendered to DunRoamin' and is a beautiful little girl who was born about September 9, 2014.  She required some dental work but was fine otherwise.

Babbs has a fantastic purrsonality.  She loves everyone - especially kids!  She is very affectionate and loving and wants only to be with humans who will love her back.  She requires daily medication which she accepts easily and willingly.  She is a truly beautiful being and we hope she gets the home she deserves very soon.  Her favourite time, other than cuddling with humans, is pushing pens off a desk and carrying them around!  If you need a pen, just find Babbs - she'll have one!

Babbs has recently been diagnosed with kidney failure, so she will spend her remaining time with us being spoiled rotten!  She is a sweet little girl who deserves all the love and attention she can get!  She is currently fostered with some very good friends in Lakeville where she is being spoiled rotten - she loves it!!

"Fivel" returned to DunRoamin' on August 1, 2019.  He had originally come to us on June 5, 2015 from Florenceville where he had been found wandering in a yard.  He had a lacerated right hind leg, a severe infestation of ear mites, bleeding ears and infected puncture wounds on both front legs.  He needed help and he was able to receive it.  On December 15, 2015, he was adopted to a home in Peel.  Unfortunately, he developed crystals in his urine which clogged his urethra, ensuring urine could not leave his body.  This is very serious.

Fivel was accepted by DunRoamin' and is currently undergoing care at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where he'll get exactly what he needs.  He is a beautiful boy!  On August 6, 2019, he underwent surgery to remove several tiny stones stuck in his urethra.  This surgery, which included a perineal urethrostomy, allowed the stones to be removed/passed and he's doing better.  He should be fine in a couple of weeks and he looks forward to joining the other boys in the S/O room (they must all eat Royal Canin Urinary S/O food to ensure they do not form stones and block again).  We have had dozens of cats on this diet and have had not a single recurrence - as long as they eat Urinary S/O food, they're perfectly fine!

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

Fivel is currently in our Cats For Seniors Program where he lives happily with his friends

"Gretchen" and her sister Rosalita arrived at DunRoamin' on August 2, 2019.  They had originally come from the Edmundston area where they had been found in an empty apartment.   Fortunately, they had no extreme health problems, but no one wanted them and they were scheduled for euthanasia. 

Gretchen was born about February 1, 2019, so was only a kitten.  She was initially timid, of course, after what she'd been through, but she's doing so much better now.  She is now spayed, fully vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites.  She is a beautiful little girl who dreams of a family to grow up in.

On October 2, 2019, Gretchen and her sister Rosalita were fostered by a very kind lady in Bath.  We are very grateful, as we were completely full at DunRoamin'.  We appreciate the help very much and Gretchen enjoys the love and attention of her foster family - both feline and human!!

Day 1


Day 33

"Mordecai" came to DunRoamin' on November 15, 2019 from Perth-Andover where he had been a stray who had been hanging around for about a year.  Although people were feeding him at times, he had no one to care for him.  He had recently been noticed to be matted and have a hard time eating.

Mordecai was examined by his new vet and found to be in poor shape.  He tested positive for FIV and had moderate muscle wasting in much of his body.  He was dehydrated, matted, had ear mites and such severe dental disease that all his teeth had to be removed as roots were exposed, several were abscessed and many were already missing.   We've all had a toothache, but that must have HURT!

Mordecai was already neutered and was born about November 15, 2008.  We hope to make the remainder of his life much more enjoyable than what he has obviously already been through.  Now that he has received all medical care required from his friends at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic, he is a happy, loving, talkative little boy who loves company and he's doing well!  He loves to lay across the back of your shoulders while you work on your computer or watch TV.  He is very interactive!!

On January 22, 2021, Mordecai was invited to be fostered by a very nice couple in Riceville while he awaits a permanent home but he has since developed medical issues which dictate that he be cared for by his loving vet tech foster mother, so he has been under her special care since March 26, 2021 where he is doing well.  He requires observation, medication and IV fluids as necessary, but is doing well to date.  Thanks for taking care of him, Jayme.

"Atlas" came to DunRoamin' on November 27, 2019 from Beechwood.  He was born about November 27, 2015 so was only about four years old.  Atlas had been urinating inappropriately for several months and his family could no longer keep him, so he came to us for help.

Atlas is a very nice boy who was immediately assessed by his new vet friend.  Among other things, he had enlarged lymph nodes and inflammation and has since been diagnosed with irritable bowel disorder.  He is getting the best of care from Dr Haines at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  He has had some issues trying to put on weight but he's now maintaining and may even decide to put on a few ounces!.  He will be vaccinated as soon as he is healthy enough to receive them.  Atlas is currently on medication and prescription food. 

Atlas is very friendly, loving and affectionate.  He is grateful for the care of his new vet friend who checks in on him frequently.  His greatest wish is for a home where he can be spoiled, even if he has to take a little medication daily - it's well worth it, and so is he!!

Look at me now!!

"Harold" came to DunRoamin' on March 13, 2020 from Perth-Andover, NB where he had been living under an apartment building and eating garbage.  No one could help him, so he came to us.

Harold was born about March 13, 2015.  He was very much underweight, had marked stomatitis (infected teeth) which means he required all his teeth to be removed, and had hair loss on his back end.  His ears show some "character" as well.  This little boy needed help. 

Harold very quickly has made himself a favourite.  He is affectionate, loving and will turn himself inside out for a cuddle - he's very grateful to be warm, safe, have good and frequent food and have loving caregivers.  He'd love to be an indoor cat so he can live safely and have his own family to love.  He was already neutered upon his arrival.  Harold tested negative for both Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus.  As you can see by his face, he LOVES chin rubs - he's missed out on so many, but that changed today!!

Harold has undergone dental surgery and is fully vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites.  He is one of the most affectionate cats we have known, so if you want a cuddly friend,  he's your boy!  Please come meet him!

"Tulsa" came to DunRoamin' from Johnville on March 19, 2020.  He had been dropped off at a home in January and had been living in their bathroom since, but had been having watery diarrhea and needed medical attention which his rescuer was unable to provide.  Tulsa was born about March 19, 2013, so is about eight years old.

Examination by his new vet revealed that he was already neutered, had a good body condition, but had tartar and gum issues on his teeth that required cleaning and some extractions.  He has completed his vaccine routine and is hopeful for a home and family.  He's very loving and attentive to humans!

Tulsa was not a happy boy when he came to us, but he realized very quickly that he's with friends and is happy to receive the love and care he has since learned about.  He is extremely affectionate and wants nothing more than he wants his very own human.  He has had his dental surgery and his mouth is now perfectly fine.  He can't wait to have his own family!!

"Furgie" came to us on July 14, 2020, from Fredericton where she had been adopted earlier, but had been peeing and pooping inappropriately, so came back to us.  Since her return, she has displayed no such behaviour, but has been diagnosed as being diabetic.  Furgie is now on 5.5 units of insulin twice daily, is eating a prescription diabetic diet and is doing very well indeed.  She is playful, happy, affectionate and loves the other cats with whom she resides. 

Furgie has become one of our greeters at DunRoamin' and takes her job very seriously, although she has so much less to do due to COVID-10 restrictions, but we're all hoping this will pass soon.  Furgie was born about January 31, 2012 and hopes for a retirement home where she can sleep happily on someone's lap - it's the first place she goes if we sit down even for a second!  If you're looking for an attentive, affectionate little cat, she's your girl, and she'll pay back your kindness in spades!!  She is a beautiful little girl who loves all people and doesn't mind the medication at all, as long as someone is paying attention to her!

Furgie is a beautiful calico who will give everything to her new family, and she definitely has a lot to give.

SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PETS!!

"Rocky" came to us on November 10, 2020 from Holmesville where he had been trying to survive on his own.  He tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) - please read about it here.  He is a nice boy who loves to have his ears scratched, although when he's had enough he'll let you know by whacking you with his paw - he's in charge, you know!  He currently lives with Mordecai and Randall (see above), both of whom tested positive for FIV and are hoping for a loving home together where they can live out the rest of their lives in bliss!

Rocky has come into his own very quickly.  He is friendly, affectionate and loves to have lots of pets and scratches.  If he tires of attention, he'll let us know with a quick swat, but then is back very quickly for more loving!  He is quite the boy!  As you can read below, FIV+ cats may live long and happy lives and may interact with other cats as long as they do not fight, and he's a lover, not a fighter!  Please come meet this gorgeous tuxedo cat!  He is SO hoping for a home where he can sleep on a bed, watch TV and help his person type on a computer!  He loves to hang out with people!

On January 22, 2021, Rocky was invited to be fostered by a very nice couple in Riceville while he awaits a permanent home.  Thanks to them for giving this beautiful little boy a home while he awaits a permanent abode!

** 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).  We currently have FIV+ cats living with FIV- cats in foster homes and have experienced no difficulty whatsoever.

Please read about FIV here.

In mid-December, 2020, DunRoamin' accepted an initial group of 22 cats and kittens from an out-of-control cat colony numbering 62 that was increasing in numbers.  All of these cats required significant medical attention.   These little fur balls ranged in age from approximately three months to six years, with the large majority being one year of age or younger.  Please read about them below.

All these cats required such things as pain medication, upper respiratory infection medication, dental surgeries, parasite control and antibiotics as well as a significant amount of canned and dry food.  Two beautiful little ones required an eye to be removed and several have scars on their eyes as a result of upper respiratory infection that was not treated - "Bough" (see below) is one of them.

Sadly, three of these little ones were unable to survive.  You may read about Candle, Wreath and Seal on our Pet Memorials Page.

We will be accepting additional cats from this colony during the second week of January 2021 and the first week of February 2021 who also require similar attention and medical care.  Donations to help with their recovery are gratefully accepted.


 

"Forest" came to DunRoamin' on December 12, 2020 from a colony of 62 that was growing unchecked.  She was born about June 13, 2019, so is a sibling to Cadeau, Eira, Amaryllis and Neige.

Forest had upper respiratory infection, flea allergy dermatitis and ear mites.  She is a beautiful long-haired grey tabby who looks forward to having a safe, warm and caring home in which to spend the remainder of her life.  Because she has never been without multiple cats in her life with whom to sleep, cuddle and play, we hope she may be adopted with a sibling so that she may feel loved and comfortable when her life changes for the better!!

As of mid-January, she is still experiencing some upper respiratory symptoms and is under close supervision of her veterinarian to ensure he gets better as quickly as she can.  Had she not had this care, she would not be in a good place at all, but we were certain with the expertise of her vet, she would soon be fine and ready to go to a home of her very own.  She is currently on inhalable medication twice daily for asthma and it is possible that she may need this for life.  She stayed close to her vet for several weeks to ensure she was doing well.   On May 16, 2021, she was invited to be fostered by a very caring family in Woodstock where she will enjoy the company of other cats, two kids and the best foster parents EVER while receiving the medical monitoring she may need, although she is doing VERY well!   Have fun, Forest - you'll LOVE it there!

On January 14, 2020, DunRoamin' accepted a second group of cats and kittens who needed help - this one totaling 19, all of whom required medical attention.   These little fur balls ranged in age from approximately six months to five years.

All these cats required such things as pain medication, upper respiratory infection medication, dental surgeries, parasite control and antibiotics as well as basic requirements such as a significant amount of canned and dry food, spays/neuters, FIV and FeLV tests, full vaccines to protect them from disease, parasite control, etc.   Our goal is to change their lives immensely by finding them warm, loving and caring homes and families.

This brings DunRoamin's total to 26 strays accepted in the first 14 days of this new year of 2021, which we hope will be a significantly better year for all of us.  In these times when so many things have changed, these little ones still experience terrible things and still need help.  Donations are welcome to help make it better for these little fur balls - they deserve it too!


Shalla


Meara

"Shalla" and "Meara" came to DunRoamin' on January 14, 2021 from a colony of 62 that was growing unchecked.  They appear to be siblings and are very much bonded with each other.  Shalla is the grey tabby and white little girl and appears relatively healthy with no major concerns.   Meara is the calico.  She had ear mites and required another checkup once she was more comfortable in her new environment just to ensure all was well, but she is now fine. 

These sisters were born about January 14, 2019, are obviously bonded and would like to be adopted together.  They are now spayed, fully vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and are anxious to start the next wonderful phase of their lives.

On January 30, 2021, Shalla and Meara went to stay with some very good supporters and lovers of all things cat so that they might become more relaxed and social - they were initially timid due to all these changes in their lives.  They are doing very well and are anxious to have permanent homes very soon.  Thanks to their foster parents for taking such good care of them and teaching the how wonderful some humans can be!

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

"Waif" returned to DunRoamin' on January 29, 2021 from Woodstock where she had been adopted about three years previously.  Waif had become ill and was not doing well, so she returned to her original vet to be treated.  Waif had a temperature and did not want to eat.

She was prescribed medication and required a feeding tube inserted until she feels well enough to eat on her own, which we hope will be very soon.  Waif was born about January 3, 2017 and is a very nice, friendly, affectionate little girl.  We'll keep you up to date on her progress.  We'd like to thank her vet tech foster mother for taking such good care of her.  She's in the best of hands.

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

"Lolli" returned to DunRoamin' on February 4, 2021 from Woodstock where she had been adopted previously.  She had been abandoned in an apartment but was rescued by a kind young man who took great care of her, but as she had been peeing inappropriately, he was unable to keep her.

Lolli was examined by Florenceville Veterinary Clinic staff to determine her issues and treatment and was placed on medication which has done it's job well.  She is using the little box consistently and has no further issues.  Lolli was initially stressed at such a change in her environment as she has always preferred a quiet, warm and comfortable home without stress.  As she has lived in an apartment very close to a street, she appears to be stressed by loud noises such as snowplows which pass very close to her windows.  We hope that we are able to connect her with a nice, quiet home where she can live out the rest of her years.  She may take a bit of time to settle in, but once she is comfortable, she is a cuddle cat who will jump happily into your lap and stay there as long as you will let her!

Lolli is a long-haired white beauty with one blue eye who was born about July 12, 2012.  She hopes to find the "purrfect" home for her soon.  So do we.

On February 4, 2021, DunRoamin' accepted a fourth group of cats - the final 21 strays from a colony that had totaled 62 (36 females and 26 males).  All had medical issues which required medical intervention such as eye removals, dental extractions, leg amputation, spays, neuters and much medication to combat flea allergy dermatitis, intestinal parasites and upper respiratory infection, all of which were running rampant in the colony.  All cats had parasites such as ear mites and fleas, several had luxating patellas (kneecaps that move in and out of place - a congenital defect), several were pregnant and almost all were underweight as they had not had enough food to sustain strong and healthy bodies.  Despite all medical intervention, one of this final group was unable to survive, bringing the total to three of 62 whom we were unable to save. 

All of these cats are related to each other and have never been without multiple cats with whom to sleep, cuddle, interact and play.  As of July 5, 2021, we have found loving homes for all but three of these 62 cats - Jayla, Hare and Chipmunk (see below). 

This was a huge undertaking for DunRoamin' and all assistance is appreciated.

Donations are gratefully accepted.

"Theodore" came to us on April 12, 2021 from a place where he was being fed but no one was able to provide the care that he required.  Theodore had fractured and missing teeth and a badly-infected soft tissue abrasion on his left front leg.  Theodore was born about April 12, 2018.

Theodore is a beautiful boy.  He was initially scared, but has since learned that he is among friends.  He loves  his food and loves to have his head scratched.  He is doing very well and is hoping for a new home - he looks forward to that very much.  He has had a very hard life to date, but he is anxious to finally have a family who will love and care for him the way he deserves.  It takes him a second to get used to new people, but that's understandable.  He can't wait for his very own family - he has a lot to give them!!

Look at me now!!

"Gaia" came to DunRoamin' from a colony of cats in Somerville, NB.  Born about January 1, 2020, she was not in good shape.  Her left eye required enucleation (removal), and she required dental work once she was strong enough.  On top of these medical issues, she was found to be diabetic.  She's had a hard go, but that all ends today.

Gaia tested negative for FIV and FeLV and was spayed.  She will require a diabetic diet and insulin to regulate her system to ensure that she grows strong and healthy but she is doing very well and she was ecstatic when she was allowed to leave vet care in early July to join us at DunRoamin'.  She is a beautiful little girl who is grateful to be warm and safe.  Now that she's starting to feel better, she is showing her real personality - and it's a winner!  She hopes for a loving home very soon.  Her insulin injections are really no big deal, are very inexpensive and she is SUCH a sweet little girl!  She is already putting on weight and she will be very grateful to have a family of her very own.

Diabetic cats usually require a diabetic diet and an insulin injection daily, but this is no big deal at all!  Needles are very small and easily given, and once on a diabetic diet, these little ones do very well - just ask Chiffon and Furgie - they know that to be very true!!  Gaia eats Fancy Feast canned food and Purina DM dry food - she loves them both, especially her canned food!  She is tiny right now but is putting on weight as she inhales her favourite wet food!

"Obsidian" came to DunRoamin' on May 18, 2021 from the Oakland area where he was a stray who was hanging around hoping for food and shelter.  He was examined by his new vet friend and found to have flea allergy dermatitis which means he should have flea allergy medication year round to make sure he doesn't ever have to deal with the pain and itchiness should he potentially pick up a flea.  He was born about May 18, 2020, so is about two years old.  He also had tartar on his teeth which may mean he may require a dental cleaning in the next six to twelve months also.

Obsidian is a very nice little boy.  He is grateful for the nutritious food, warm bed and kindness shown to him.  He is now neutered and has begun his vaccine protocol.  He looks forward to the possibility of a loving family and a safe, secure world in which to live for the rest of his life.   He has had a bit of a challenging time getting used to humans, but he loves his comfy beds and treats - he'll just need a bit of time.  He has experienced a bit of pain in his hind end but is being treated for that.  He hopes to be ready for a home soon - he's all up to date until June, 2022!!

"Matcha" came to us along with ten other cats on June 1, 2021 from the Perth-Andover area.  He was born about June 1, 2020 and was lean, had ear mites and many scabs all over his body. 

Matcha took a bit of time to trust us, but he learned soon that we were his friends..  He lived with his friend Truffle (see our Adopted Cats page) who showed him that there are only good and caring people here and that he is safe forever now.  He is looking for a new home and is neutered, has had his full set of vaccines, FeLV/FIV tests and parasite control.   He has come a very long way in learning to trust humans, especially since he's learned how good some of them are at chin and head scratches!!  We think that Matcha will always take a bit of time to settle into a new environment, so we're hoping his potential family will have the patience he requires because he is well worth it!  He is a sweetheart!

On June 26, 2021, Matcha went to stay with his friends at The Purrfect Cup Cat Cafe in Two Nations Crossing, Fredericton, NB.  He is a little timid, but it's the very first time he's been in such a very cool place!  He's looking forward to meeting his very own loving family while he's here!

"Gilmore" came to DunRoamin' on June 2, 2021 from Gregg Settlement where he was peeing inappropriately in the home.  Gilmore was assessed by his vet at Florenceville Veterinary Clinic and found to have cystitis for which he is now being treated. 

Gilmore is a sweet little boy.  He loves to have his ears scratched and loves attention.  He must eat Urinary S/O food only as he may have a tendency to block if he eats any other food.  This is a high-quality food that we have used for years and have had not even one single recurrence as long as they stay on this diet!  Gilmore is looking forward to meeting a family who will love him very soon!  Perhaps there is a family that is already feeding their cat Urinary S/O food - he'd love to join!!

On August 10, 2021, Gilmore went to be fostered with his friends Sue, Steve and Rocky, another DunRoamin' cat he met this past week.  Thank you for accepting him into your home while he awaits a permanent home.  You are wonderful!!

Look at me now! (Aug 2, 2021)

"Cecily" came to us on June 3, 2021 from the Hartland area where she had been part of a group of cats who were not in good shape.  Cecily was born about June 3, 2018 and may be related to Marla (see above) who had a similar medical problem - she had severe upper respiratory infection and an infected left eye.  Cecily required all her teeth to be removed as they were not in good shape at all - that must have been very painful.  

It was initially thought that her left eye was too badly damaged to save, but that is not the case.  She had surgery to help repair it and is doing well as of August 2, 2021, when she moved from veterinary care to us.  While in vet care, she had issues putting on weight so was fed through a tube to make sure she took in enough calories to help her grow.  She obviously did not have enough food from where she came, so we're  hoping to teach her that it's a good thing to have all the food she will ever need for the rest of her life. 

Cecily is a sweet little girl who just needs to feel safe and normal - she'll get there!  We'll teach her what a loving, caring family is so that she can choose her very own!  She loves attention and affection, but sometimes isn't sure of it.  She'll learn very quickly that she will always be safe and cared for.  Please come meet her.

July 14, 2021, after some
good food and vet care!
She's looking and feeling
so much better!

Spoken for!!

"Banana" came to us on the evening of July 10, 2021 from the Red Bridge area where she was found on the side of the road by a lady who was out for a walk.  This lady noticed that she needed help.  Banana was born about June 4, 2021.

Banana was assessed by her new vet friend who diagnosed her with road rash on her chin, a partially-healed tail injury and paralysis in her right front leg.  She was most probably thrown from a vehicle, as these are injuries we see frequently from that type of trauma.

Banana understood that her new friend was there to help her and co-operated for her examination, although she was decidedly vocal about it!  She quickly dived into the wet food provided to her, then curled up for a nap borne of exhaustion and a full belly beside her new hedgehog friend who will keep her company while she recuperates.

On August 11, 2021, the dead end of Banana's tail fell off and a portion of the remainder of her tail will require amputation, as well as her right front leg.  This will potentially happen in September when she is big and strong enough to undergo surgery.  Stay tuned - we'll keep you up to date.  In the meantime, she is doing well and will experience the best of care from her foster mother who is a vet assistant.   Donations are appreciated to help support this beautiful little girl.

Banana would especially like to thank the generous person who made a donation to help with her surgeries.  We are all very grateful - especially Banana!  Her surgeries for spay and amputation are now booked for mid-September when we expect she will be big and healthy enough to undergo anaesthesia.  Stay tuned!

"Zeus" came to DunRoamin' on July 26, 2020, the morning of a very great rain storm, so we decided to name him after the god of thunder!   He was born about July 27, 2016 and came from the Centreville area where he was a stray that no one could help.  As his future was not good, he stayed with us.

Zeus is a sweetheart.  He has obviously enjoyed an indoor life before, because once he overcame his fear of the unknown and became certain that we were okay, he showed an entirely different side of himself.  He is loving, cuddly, affectionate, loves chin rubs and belly rubs and is an all-around nice boy.  If you'd like to meet him, please get in touch - he'd love to have a family before the cold winter months set it.  He dreams of sleeping on a nice warm lap in front of the TV and on a huge big human bed at night!!  On August 21, 2021, he went to stay with his friends at The Purrfect Cup in Two Nations Crossing, Fredericton, where he'll be spoiled rotten until he finds a family!  Have fun, Zeus!

"Marian" and her two daughters, Macy and Melody came to DunRoamin' on August 3, 2021 from Woodstock where Marian was a stray who had kittens.  No one was able to care for them.  Thankfully, Marian is a very caring, loving and affectionate mom to her two babies.

Marian was diagnosed with a luxating patella on her left hind leg (her kneecap can move in and out, but this is very rarely a problem from our experience with so many cats with this issue).  She had parasites, mild tartar on her teeth and was underweight.  We'll make sure she gets all the good nutrition she needs now!

Marian was born about August 4, 2020 and her daughters were born about June 27, 2021.  Marian has obviously been someone's pet as she is loving and accepting of humans and is familiar with being indoors.  She has a quiet, loving personality and would love nothing more than to have a family with whom to watch TV and sleep on their bed at night (and maybe a nap or three during the day!) 

Marian is spayed, fully vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites.  She is anxious for a home of her very own.

"Loggins," his mom Janis (see above) and sister Messina (see below) came to us on August 9, 2021 from Centreville where Janis and her babies had no one to care for them after Messina became very ill.  Loggins and Messina had been born about July 22, 2021, so were only a couple of weeks old and not doing well.

All are currently under the care of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where they are getting the medical assistance they require.  We'll tell you more as soon as we know more.

"Messina," her mom Janis and brother Loggins (see above) came to us on August 9, 2021 from Centreville where Janis and her babies had no one to care for them when Messina became ill.  Upon her arrival, she was unresponsive and we feared the worst, but medical care at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic has helped her and we hope she will soon be completely out of the woods - it can be a long trek.

All three are currently under the care of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where they are getting the medical assistance they require.  As of September 14, 2021, Messina is gaining a bit of weight due to her increased appetite.  She is eating Kitten Milk Replacer and Hypo allergenic food which she eats from a syringe.  She sometimes requires fluids and is trying to get over a bit of upper respiratory infection.  She is much smaller than her brother, but we are hoping she will be on the road to recovery very soon.  She is in the care of a veterinary technician to ensure she gets the medical assistance she needs.  Thanks, Derrah, for looking after her.

As of September 18, 2021, she is eating on her own and gaining some weight.  She loves to play with toys and is even wrestling with her brother a bit!

"Honeydew" and her sister Bunsen (see above) came to us on August 11, 2021 from Florenceville where they were found on their own.  Both were very skinny and had upper respiratory infection - something a little kitten rarely gets over on their own, and they were definitely on their own.

They were born about June 17, 2021. They are currently on medication to ensure their upper respiratory infection is treated.  They are also receiving lots of love and affection, as well as a nutritious diet of Royal Canin Kitten Food to ensure they get the best start possible in their new lives,

On September 7, 2021, they were reunited with their brother, Beaker (see below)!  Both Honeydew and Beaker are spending time with their friends at The Purrfect Cup, Two Nations Crossing, Fredericton, NB.  Please come meet them and enjoy the fine coffee, treats and great staff as well as some pretty cute and affectionate cats!

Shade

Shine
Look at us now!!

Meet "Shade" and "Shine," sisters who came to us from the Centreville area on August 19, 2021.  They had been found alone on a farm path and no mother or siblings were found, despite an intensive search.  They needed help.

Shade and Shine were examined by their new vet friend and determined to have been born about July 15, 2021.  Both were very tiny for their age (underweight) and had upper respiratory infection and ear mites, neither of which are conducive to the health of tiny kittens, especially ones with no mother to care for them. 

These little ones needed to put on some weight and become healthy.  Eventually, they will be fully vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV, spayed and ready to go to loving homes.  They are social, loving and seek attention, so they are going to be, perhaps, cuddle kittens!  Shade and Shine are identical black kittens.  These little sisters are practically indistinguishable - the only way we can tell them apart is by their weights - Shade was 40 grams larger than her sister, but that is not significant.  At five weeks of age, they should have easily weighed 500 grams, and the largest, Shade, was only 324 grams.  But we'll help them grow!  They are in a foster home as of August 21 where they are being spoiled rotten and are eating up a storm.  Have fun, little girls!

It's almost Hallowe'en!!

"Rosemary" and her son Fennel (see below) came to us on August 21, 2021 from the Woodstock area where their lives were not secure.  They were picked up by a young lady who could not care for them so they came to us. 

Rosemary is a very grateful and friendly cat.  She loves people and is a great mom.  She was born about July 10, 2018.  She is a quiet little girl who loves to show attention to people.  She shows gratitude for her new life and that of her little kitten every day with purrs and head butts.  She can't wait for a home of her very own.  Please come meet her!  She is very attached to her little boy (see below).  We think that he is her only surviving kitten and they seem to be more bonded than usual.  They play with each other and sleep together all the time - they don't want to be apart!

  "Fennel" and his mom Rosemary (see above) came to us on August 21, 2021 from the Woodstock area where their lives had been threatened and they were not safe.  They were picked up by a young lady who could not care for them, so they came to us.  Fennel was born about July 10, 2021.  He is a very outgoing and loving little kitten.  He loves his mom, loves to play with her and loves all humans.  He is very active, happy and playful.  He is the first to "yell" at us if we walk by without patting or talking to him - he is very playful and outgoing!

He and his mom are SO attached to each other and love each other so much, it would be their wish that they might stay together.  He plays with her, sleeps on her and they enjoy each other's company so very much!

"Beaker" came to us on August 23, 2021 from the Florenceville area where there was no one to care for this little one.  He is a sibling to Bunsen and Honeydew (see above) who came to us on August 11.  We are happy to reunite him with his siblings. 

Beaker has obvious signs of upper respiratory infection and can't seem to get enough food into him.  He has been checked out by his new best friend who had prescribed medication to ensure his upper respiratory infection comes to a quick and complete halt so that he may start his journey toward safety, security, health, love and family. 

As of September 7, 2021, Beaker is doing just fine.  He has been reunited with his siblings Bunsen and Honeydew and they were so very happy to have each other again!

On September 18, 2021, Beaker went to spend some time with his friends at The Purrfect Cup Cat Cafe in Two Nations Crossing, Fredericton.  Come check this place out!!  You'll love the food and coffee, and of course, you'll love the cats!!

Look at me now!!

"Giovanni" came to us from the Plaster Rock area on August 30, 2021.  Found on the side of the road with no one who was able to help him, he came to us with an infected right eye.  He was very thin and needed some good nutrition and a safe place in which to become healthy again.  He is currently on medication to help his eye - we're sure he'll be fine, thanks to the fact that he has received medical care.  He was originally quite feisty, but now that he is reassured that he is with people who will treat him well and address all his needs, he's settling in well.

Stay tuned - we'll keep you up to date as we learn more about him.

"Blue Bell" returned to DunRoamin' on August 31, 2021.  She originally came to DunRoamin' on July 15, 2014 where she had been found all alone on the side of a road.  Born about June 1, 2014, she was emaciated, dehydrated, her eyes and nose were badly infected, she was hypothermic, and had fleas and ear mites.  Not a great start!  Blue Bell was brought back to health and was adopted on September 18, 2014.  Unfortunately, her family eventually had to move to an apartment that did not allow pets, so she came back to us.  She is spayed, tested for FIV and FeLV and will be up to date on her vaccines the end of September.

Blue Bell 2014

Blue Bell is a beautiful cat who is hoping for a new home where she can live happily ever after.  She is not a fan of dogs, but is grateful for all humans.  Blue Bell has settled in well and is a friendly, loving little girl who looks forward to another family with whom to bond and spend the rest of her days.

"Moppet" came to us on September 4, 2021 from the Florenceville area where she was one of a colony of cats.  She was not doing well.  She had a yellow ocular and nasal discharge, a tender abdomen, thickened bowels and needed medical attention.  She will stay under the care of her favourite vet for a few days to determine the full extent of her medical status and to receive ongoing care as required.  She was born about June 4, 2021.  Although she came from the same location as Honeydew, Bunsen and Beaker (see above), she is about two weeks older.  There are many more cats and kittens there who need help, and we hope to provide just that.

As of September 10, 2021, Muppet is fostered by a vet tech to make sure she has the best of medical care while she gets strong and healthy.  Thanks, Marley!  Stay tuned - we'll tell you more soon.

"Pawl" came to us on September 11, 2021 from the Hartland area.  He was part of a group of cats being cared for, but he had injuries to his ears.  A kind lady rescued him and brought him to us for help.  He was covered with fleas.  Pawl was born about September 11, 2019.  Pawl was underweight, had cauliflower ears (aural hematomas due to a build-up of scar tissue), and had ear mites.  His ears were very dirty and his ear canals are slightly narrow, so he may require routine ear cleanings (very easy to do - he doesn't mind at all!)  He received parasite control, his ears were cleaned and he is already much more comfortable.  He's gonna be fine!!

Pawl is quiet and unassuming.  He is grateful to have lots of food and he already trusts us.  He will receive all medical care required, will be neutered, fully vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites.  Then, he will be looking forward to being invited to join a family who will love and care for him forever!  He can't wait!

"Astrayea" came to us on September 17, 2021 from Woodstock where her family could no longer care for her.  Astrayea was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism which will most probably require medication for life, but it's really no big deal at all!  She was born about September 16, 2009 and was already spayed.

Astrayea will meet with her vet for a recheck around the end of October to ensure all is going well.  Then, she'll be ready and waiting for that perfect home where she can live forever.  She is a beautiful little girl who is very quiet, loving and affectionate.  She will make a wonderful companion for some lucky family!

"Peck" came to us on September 18, 2021 from the Woodstock area where he was a stray who had no one to care for him.  His tail had been broken, he was very thin and he was covered with fleas (how uncomfortable!!),  We'll tell you more as we learn it, but we definitely do know that he's a sweetheart and he loves people! 

Peck isn't all that interested in eating recently so is under the supervision of his vet friend at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  He is on medication and is being hand-fed until his appetite returns.  Even while not wanting to eat, he is a loving, affectionate, playful little guy who has captured the heart of each of his DunRoamin' caregivers.  Stay tuned - we'll keep you up to date.

"Hype" came to us on September 18, 2021 from the Greenfield area.  He was reported to be a stray who had come to a house the day before but did not seem healthy.  No one could take him in.

Hype was examined by his new best vet friend who determined he was born about September 18, 2011,  Blood work and x-rays revealed that he has soft tissue swelling in his throat which makes it difficult for him to breathe.  Exertion of almost any kind exacerbates this condition.  Medication has eased his difficulty so far and he is resting better.  We'll keep you up to date as we learn more about this little guy.  He's very nice and is obviously comfortable with being in an indoor environment.

"Tully" came to DunRoamin' on July 13, 2021 from Coldstream where he, his sister Teal and three brothers Torque, Travers and Trubble had been found in a shed.  No mother was located and kind people were trying to feed and care for them, but with their own pets found it to be too daunting a task, especially since these little ones needed medical care.   They were born about June 1, 2021, so were not old enough to be away from their mother.   They needed medical support, as well as lots of love and care.

Tully was underweight, had conjunctivitis, ocular and nasal discharge and was sneezing constantly.  He also had diarrhea which had caused him to lose hair around his anus.  Multiple fecal balls had to be removed, but he was soon starting to feel more comfortable.

Thanks to the care he has received at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic, he was soon fine.  He is neutered, fully vaccinated, tested for Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus and treated for all parasites.  On September 9, 2021, he was adopted by a nice lady in Fredericton.  Unfortunately, his kitten antics were too much so he returned to us to find a home.  Tully is a typical energetic, playful kitten who loves to run, wrestle and play.  He will do best in a home with another cat or two approximately his age so that they may burn off each other's energy together while having a fun time!

Tully is staying with his friends at The Purrfect Cup in Two Nations Crossing, Fredericton, NB.  Please come meet him and check out this cat cafe!  It's fantastic!  You'll love the coffee, treats, staff and cats!

"Chantelle" came to us from the Grand Falls area on September 25, 2021.  She needed medical care that no one else was able to provide, so she came to us.  She is a beautiful calico little girl who definitely needed medical assistance.  Thanks to her favourite new vet tech for coming in to check her out on a very wet and rainy Sunday afternoon to provide professional care and assistance to make sure she'd be okay for the night.  Stand by for more.
