"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!!

Pounce - still waiting
September 14, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Artemus" came to us on April 22, 2015 from the NBSPCA, along with 14 other cats.  Artemus is a beautiful tabby boy who was born about August 22, 2013.  He had 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Look at me now!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

As of March 6, 2017, Lemur is doing fine.  He loves attention and will bat at your hand with his paw to make sure he gets the attention he feels he deserves.  He's quite the boy!  He would love to have a home by himself or with perhaps one other cat.  He is a beautiful boy who loves attention, but isn't keen on sharing with the 10+ other cats with whom he lives.  He'd rather be part of a small family and he loves everyone!

Abner's wearing his Christmas sweater and hopes it brings him luck for a family this Christmas!

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

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

If you're interested in helping us care for Abner and his one hundred and ninety-plus friends we have taken in this year, donations are gratefully accepted here.

" . . . while visions of a family
danced in his head . . . "

"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 today including wind chill and the gentleman who brought him could not see him left out alone.  Neighbours in the area were not able to take him in and the shelters were all full.  So were we, but we couldn't see him left alone in these freezing temperatures - he wouldn't have lasted long, and he'd have had a very hard time of it.

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

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

". . . Nascat looked a lot like Santa,
or Santa looked a lot like him . . ."

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

Nascat required his tail to be amputated.  He is very well and is perfectly normal in every way, but he initially had to have his urine expressed from his body due to the fact that he was not able to pee on his own due to his injuries.  He is currently doing very well on his own - he rarely needs any help - he's doing GREAT!!  He is a very affectionate little boy who is hoping for a caring person to give him the life he would like to experience.  

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

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 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!

Day 1


Look at me now!!

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

Isaac 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's now doing fine.  He was soon much brighter and eating like a little piggy and is much happier.  He's a very nice boy who can't wait to have a home of his very own.  He is currently housed with two other cats (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.

"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!.

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

If you can offer Lois a quiet home where she can live out her remaining years, please give us a call.  Lois is hoping to have a family very soon and a very generous supporter has donated the cost of her adoption fee!  Thanks, Kyla!!

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

Ava likes to be petted, but on her own terms, although she's becoming more and more affectionate each day!  She is lovable and has a great personality.  She gets along fine with most cats and is doing well with us at DunRoamin'.  She is currently eating a Dental diet.  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 provide 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 will most probably sleep for days, now that he knows he's safe, warm and has lots of good food to catch up on.  He is very grateful to have been rescued and he's very social - obviously has been with people before.  He 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 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.  She was born about May 16, 2015.

Acacia is a shy little girl who loves nothing more than to be petted.  She is not a fan of being picked up, but will curl up beside you for some 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! 

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

"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 currently lives with three other cats and gets along well with them.  He also had young children in his previous home, so he's familiar and loves them!

Luka is fully vaccinated, neutered and tested for FIV and FeLV, as are all DunRoamin' cats.  He hopes for a new home soon.  Please come meet him.

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

"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.

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.  Please come meet her.

Look at me now!!

"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 (September 22, 2017):  Xavier's foster mother reports that he is really friendly and loves to wrestle and play with other cats.  He can be a little shy at times and loud noises sometimes startle him, so he's hoping for a quiet home where he can chill out and provide all the love and companionship he possibly can!

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


Xavier enjoying a nice long nap in his foster home.
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.

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

"Liam" came back to us on July 15, 2017 from Fielding.  He was originally a stray from the Florenceville area who had no one to look after him.  He was born about January 8, 2005 and was adopted in July, 2008.

Liam had a ruptured abscess on his chin and a loose infected tooth.  Tests revealed a high blood sugar count which indicated diabetes so Liam currently takes a small injection of insulin twice daily.  He also eats a diabetic diet, which he loves.

Liam is a perfect little boy.  His sugar levels have settled and he's very comfortable with his meds - he has no problem taking his insulin at all!  He is quiet, loving and affectionate.  His favourite place is on a human's lap or on his toasty warm window ledge.  He is very anxious to have a permanent home.  Please come meet him - you'll fall in love!.

"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.  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!

Day 17
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 the 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're all doing well!   All kittens eventually received loving homes.  Brittany is still waiting for her turn.  Brittany was born about August 18, 2016.

Day 1

Nicolette's not impressed with the hat, but
she can't wait for Christmas!  Maybe she'll
get her own family for Christmas!!


" . . . bah, Humbug!!"

"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.

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 September 27, 2017, Nicolette is doing very well.  She's put on some 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!

"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 perfectly healed and he's waiting for that family he's always dreamed of.  He'd like to have a home, please.

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


Look at me now!!

"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).

Wainwright was scared, of course, but when softly patted he eventually 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.  Please come meet him - you'll fall in love!

"Deja" came to us on October 23, 2017 from Rosedale where the NB SPCA picked her up after she had been abandoned by her family to fend for herself.  She is a beautiful, friendly little girl who had a mild external ear infection, gingivitis and moderate stomatitis, all of which were soon rectified with steroids and antibiotics.  She was also very pregnant.

Deja's three beautiful baby kittens arrived on October 24, 2017.  Sadly, daughters Valla and Regan survived only a few minutes.  You can read about them on our Pet Memorials page.  Her third kitten, Vu, is still with us and you can read about her below.

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

"Hotchner" originally came to us on October 5, 2013 from Woodstock where he was a member of a colony of cats where he weighed only about one third the weight of his siblings.  He was failing to thrive and needed help badly.  He born about August 15, 2013 and was sick, underweight, had an eye infection and way too many fleas.  He required veterinary care for two months before he was healthy enough to start his new life.  He was adopted on December 12, 2013, to a family in Florenceville.  Unfortunately, health issues in the family required that he be returned to us to find a new home on October 25, 2017.

Hotchner loves schedules.  He likes a treat, breakfast and fresh water first thing in the morning, accompanied by conversation and lots of head butts while you and he play with his toys - he especially loves his mousie and fishie.  He loves to be talked to and played with.  He's not a huge cuddler, but loves to be around people.  Sometimes kids are a bit too loud for him, but he loves quieter people.  He prefers that his treats be broken in half, because he loves them so much he practically inhales them!   He is not a fan of canned food, but enjoys his dry food.  If possible, he'd like to go to a new home with his sister Marvel (see below).

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

"Marvel" originally came to us on December 6, 2013 from Woodstock where she had been found by people who soon realized that she was not able to eat.  She was brought for veterinary care and it was learned that she had a large ulcer in the back of her throat.  This was treated immediately and she was soon eating fine and putting on weight.  Marvel was born about July 6, 2013.

Marvel was adopted on January 18, 2014 to a home in Florenceville where she lived happily with her new brother Hotchner (see above), but due to unfortunate medical issues in her home, she was returned to us on October 25, 2017.  Marvel is happy, healthy, playful and loving.  She was timid at first, but warms up quickly and she's doing very well.  She is full of love and spunk and loves long cuddles on your lap or rolling on her belly to get attention.  Marvel prefers dry food as opposed to canned food, and she loves her Temptations treats.  She hopes to get a new home with her brother Hotchner (see above).

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

"Vu" was born on October 24, 2017 to Deja (see above), a pregnant stray who came to us as an SPCA seizure the previous day.  Her two sisters, Reagan and Valla, unfortunately did not survive.  Vu was in danger as well, but thanks to medical intervention and a caring vet tech foster mother, she is doing well so far.

Vu's foster mother must monitor her health, temperature, food intake, etc, and must feed and stimulate her to pee and poop every two hours around the clock for the next several weeks, since Vu's mother has displayed a lack of interest in her.  That's a very intense, dedicated and compassionate undertaking for Vu's foster mom and Vu is very grateful for the love and care, as are we.  As you can see by the photos, as of Day 3, she is tiny enough to fit easily into the palm of your hand, but she is holding her own so far.  She initially weighed in at only 99 grams, but after a week weighed 140 grams.  She's not out of the woods yet, but we know that she certainly has the best chance possible.  Thanks, Kate and Jeff.  You are Vu's heroes (and ours, too).

UPDATE:  As of November 5, 2017, her eyes are starting to open and she has been purring for a couple of days!  She's a little miracle, thanks to miracle workers who foster and care for her!

"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.  We'll keep you up to date as to how he's doing.

UPDATE - November 17, 2017:  Waffles is doing much better.  He is happy not to have to wear a cone anymore and has moved into a new room, which he enjoys!  He is urinating on his own and his personality has started to emerge, now that he feels so much better.  He is very affectionate and loves people.  He'll do anything for a pat and loves to head butt!  Waffles will receive frequent reassessments for the next couple of weeks 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! 

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



"Cathay" came to us on November 3, 2017 from the NBSPCA from the Saint Joseph area.  It is estimated that she was born about August 10, 2017, so she's just a baby.  She has beautiful long hair and "bedroom eyes."  She weighed in at only 1.9 pounds.

Cathay was thin and was lame on her left hind leg.  This was determined to be caused by a fracture in the growth plate of her hip socket.  She may require surgery later on, but we'll wait and see how things go.  Right now, she's happy to be warm, safe and have lots of food (which she prefers to eat from a spoon while her servants pat her at the same time!)  She is a great purrer, too.  And those eyes!!!!   Cathay tested positive for Feline Leukemia. 

Cathay is honoured to have been named after Cathay Williams, a slave, and the first African-American woman to enlist in the United States army.  In order to do so, she had to pose as a man using the name William Cathay, as women were prohibited from serving in the military at that time.

"Vimy" came to us on November 4, 2017 from Glassville where she was a stray kitten who had been pried from a dog's mouth when she entered it's territory, probably looking for assistance.  She sustained no open wounds as a result of her encounter, but definitely required medical attention for several other reasons.

Upon examination by her new vet at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic, Vimy was found to be thin, weighing only 1.5 pounds, was mildly dehydrated, had ear mites, infection in both ears, an eye infection in her left eye and a polyp in her right ear with the possibility of another in her left ear.  She's fortunate to have been brought for help.  She's being treated for all her problems and we'll keep you up to date on the polyps.  Vimy was born about September 4, 2017.  Vimy is vocal and loving, obviously grateful for the care and concern now heaped abundantly upon her!  She thanks her foster family for their generosity, compassion and love.



Vimy is honoured to have been named by her foster father in honour of the veterans who have served Canada.


Day 1

Day 7 - Look at my colours!!

"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 November 10, 2017, he is doing a little better.  We're still hoping for the best and little Flanders is doing his part to make that happen, as is his veterinary staff.  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, it will still be some time before he'll 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 brown on his head which makes him very cute and unique!  He is especially loving and cute - and adorable and sweet!/public_html/images/2017/2017 - Adopted Dogs/2017_yoda_christmas.jpg


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 . . .

"McCrae" came to us on November 7, 2017 from the Woodstock area where he was living in a garage.  When it was learned he was sick, he was brought for help, along with his friend Normandy who, sadly, did not survive, despite the best of medical attention.  McCrae was born about September 19, 2017.  He was relatively healthy, but had no one to look after him and it's cold, wet and lonely out there if you're only a baby.  Even if you're not!

As of November 13, 2017, McCrae is looking a little better and is eating a bit on his own.  He still has a ways to go, and we'll keep you up to date.   He's got everything he needs:  good food, good medical care and good friends.  We hope he'll be fine and are looking forward to his next vet assessment.


McCrae is honoured to have been named after Col John McCrae, a field surgeon in the Canadian Artillery during World War I.  Col McCrae, who was born on November 30, 1872 in Guelph, Ontario, is well remembered as the author of "In Flanders Fields," the world's most famous war memorial poem.

McCrae thanks his good friend Judy who made this beautiful bed for him.
It even has a nice little place in the bottom that holds a Snuggle Safe to keep him toasty warm!

Day 28
Look at me now!!
Spoken for!!

"Somme" came to DunRoamin' along with her brother and two sisters on the morning of November 9, 2017 from Knowlesville.  Their mom, a feral stray, had been struck and killed by a car the previous day and a lady had found the four kittens in a box in her unheated shed.  With no mom to feed them or keep them warm, they needed help.  All four are almost indistinguishable beautiful grey tabbies.

Somme was born about September 28, 2017.  She and her brother Dunkirk and sisters, Ypres and Caen are fostered by a very kind and generous supporter whom we thank profusely.  They appear to be eating on their own and are healthy.  Somme appears to be the most outgoing of her siblings so far - she will sit and stare at her foster mother until she pats her!  She is more independent than her siblings and wants cuddles when she wants them.  She makes a very cute trilling noise as she runs and plays!



Somme is honoured to be named in memory of the many heroes of the battle of Somme during World War I.

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

"Hazard" came to DunRoamin' on November 14, 2017 from Glassville.  He and several siblings had been found in a box on a porch and he was not in good shape.  He had a bad upper respiratory infection, discharge from his eyes and nose, fleas and a fractured femur.  Hazard was born about August 10, 2017, so is just a baby.

Hazard's injury is unique.  His knee has been broken and the lower bone has attached itself to the top bone, resulting in a bone is sticking out which makes his right hind leg shorter than the others.  He appears to be doing well and he will undergo three weeks of cage rest before undergoing x-rays and tests to see if he needs medical assistance or if he will be fine on his own.

In the meantime, Hazard will receive lots of nutrition, love, medication for his illness and his injury will be monitored to see how he does.  He's a really sweet little boy and whatever he needs, he'll get!

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

"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, 2017.  She is not totally comfortable with being inside, but is slowly acclimatizing.  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 tortishell 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.  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.

"Seth" came to DunRoamin' on November 16, 2017 from Wakefield where he had been hanging around a barn.  Although he had shelter and food, he was not neutered and was therefore contributing to a large number of babies being born.  A kind lady noticed also that he had upper respiratory.  Upon examination by a vet, it was learned that Seth was in much worse condition than met the untrained eye. 

Seth had upper respiratory infection, sinusitis, he had many parasites, his eyes were red and his mouth was even redder.  His teeth are in terrible condition which must cause him much pain.  Seth has been placed on antibiotics and parasite medication to help with his problems.  He will be neutered and his teeth will be removed as required.  We expect that he may be back to a healthy state in four to six weeks.  He can't wait to feel good again!

Seth thanks his rescuer for her help in getting him medical care, her generous donation to help pay for this care and her concern for all cats in the area, many of whom she has spayed and neutered of her own volition and at her own expense.  He and his friends are truly grateful.  Stay tuned - we'll keep you up to date.  Seth is extremely affectionate, loving and grateful and he's hoping someone will give him an indoor home and family of his very own.  Please come meet him.

"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 is malnourished and was put on a fibre diet to ensure she did not lose more nutrients or fluids.  Her urine output will be monitored and we're hoping that she'll get a clean bill of health in a few weeks, once 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 December 1, 2017, Tundra is doing well.  She is putting 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.  Maybe for Christmas . . .?

"York" came to DunRoamin' on November 19, 2017 from the Hartland area where she had been found under a deck.  She was not in good shape.  The gentleman who found her had to remove part of his deck to extricate her as she was not ambulatory.  It is suspected that she was the victim of an animal attack at least several days previous.  She was very fortunate to be found and brought for help.

York had a high fever, her circulation was poor in her back legs and several sections of skin will most probably die and slough off.  Her right hind leg is broken and she has several puncture marks on her legs.  Her kidneys were a concern at first, but it appears now that they will be fine.  She was given antibiotic medication and IV fluids.  In a few days, York was eating, peeing and pooping on her own - a good sign.  She purrs and loves attention and is particularly grateful for the care she is receiving from her new friends.  She is grateful to know that she will have a home when her medical treatment is completed.  Thanks to her rescuer and thanks to her future adopter.  She is a very fortunate little girl.

"Brenna" came to us on November 22, 2017 from Beechwood along with her six kittens.  She originally came to Beechwood where she had two kittens but she soon had another half dozen and no one could care for them.

Her kittens were born about October 31, 2017 and we've named them Coraline, Kellas, Keera and Tarot (females) and Noir and Coal (males).  All were healthy (see below).  They just need a safe place to grow up and they definitely need to be spayed and neutered to ensure they don't contribute to the ever-increasing number of unwanted and/or uncared-for cats, as had been Brenna's fate.  Thankfully, that's all changed now

We'd like to thank the young lady who is fostering Brenna and her family - we are grateful for the love and care they are experiencing!  They'll grow up having had a wonderful kittenhood and will soon be ready for loving homes.


Brenna is a beautiful pewter gray and she is slightly cross-eyed.  She is gorgeous and has a wonderful personality.  We'll keep you up to date as we learn more about her.  She will be nursing her kittens until the end of the year, but hopefully will be able to go to a home in the new year.

Look at me now!!

"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.. 

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.

"Snowdon"  came to us on November 24, 2017 from Bath where he was found in a box in the rafters of a garage.  His mom, Lotus (see above) had been rescued two days earlier and when his rescuer realized she still might have kittens, went looking for these little ones.  Snowdon and his siblings, Sleet, Slippy, Blanc, Frostine and Hail were born about October 27, 2017.  When found, they were living (and had probably been born) in a box in the rafters of a garage.  They had been without their mom to keep them warm, feed them, or stimulate them to pee and poop for at least two days, so they really needed help. They had fleas which were treated.

Snowdon is black with four white paws and a white mustache.  He is extremely cute.  These little guys will be ready for homes in the new year.  They can't wait!

"Blanc" came to us on November 24, 2017 from Bath where she was found in a box in the rafters of a garage.  Her mom, Lotus (see above) had been rescued two days earlier and when her rescuer realized she still might have kittens, went looking for these little ones.  Blanc and her siblings, Snowdon, Slippy, Sleet, Frostine and Hail were born about October 27, 2017.  When found, they were living (and had probably been born) in a box in the rafters of a garage.  They had been without their mom to keep them warm, feed them, or stimulate them to pee and poop for at least two days, so they really needed help.  They had fleas which were treated.

Blanc is completely white and she is going to have long hair.  She is gorgeous and we think she's going to have more personality than all her siblings, if this photo tells a true story!  She and her siblings will most likely be ready for homes in the new year.  They can't wait!

"Frostine" came to us on November 24, 2017 from Bath where she was found in a box in the rafters of a garage.  Her mom, Lotus (see above) had been rescued two days earlier and when her rescuer realized she still might have kittens, went looking for these little ones.  Frostine and her siblings, Snowdon, Slippy, Blanc, Sleet and Hail were born about October 27, 2017.  When found, they were living (and had probably been born) in a box in the rafters of a garage.  They had been without their mom to keep them warm, feed them, or stimulate them to pee and poop for at least two days, so they really needed help.  They had fleas which were treated.

Frostine is mostly white, but she has four little swatches of grey fur on the top of her head.  She is SOOOO cute!  She and her siblings will most likely be ready for homes in the new year.  They can't wait!

"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 we hope that she'll do fine.  She is timid and unsure of us right now, but it won'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.

"Nina" came back to us on December 11, 2017 from the Bath area where she had lived since being adopted in September, 2016 by a very nice gentleman.  Unfortunately, due to medical issues, he could no longer keep her.  As is our policy, Nina came back to us to find another home.  They will miss each other greatly.

Nina was born about April 28, 2014.  She and her siblings, Reddington, Keen, Spader and Diega had been found in a box on the side of the road in Lansdowne on June 2, 2014.  They were all very fortunate to find loving homes.

Nina is a beautiful grey tabby who has obviously been well loved and cared for.  She is an affectionate and happy little girl and she's hoping to be welcomed by another family who will care for her as well as she has experienced in the past.  She's got lots to give back.  She loves kids and loves to get in a tub when water is running.  She also likes scratching posts, riding on your shoulder and being picked up and carried around.  She's never been all that keen on dogs, though.

"Dizzy" came back to us on December 13, 2017 from the Holmesville area where she had been adopted approximately eleven months earlier.
