"Lego" came to us on May 17, 2017, from Holmesville where he was the victim of a hit-by-car accident.  Lego was born about May 27, 2014 and is a beautiful boy.  Unfortunately, the damage to his right hind leg was too severe and it had to be amputated.  He has recovered well and is already comfortable with walking on three legs.

Lego is very friendly and affectionate.  He is ready to go to a home very soon and he looks forward to having a family who will love him and keep him indoors where he'll be safe and loved.  He is a quiet little boy who would love to share your couch or lay on your lap while you work on your computer, knit or watch TV.  He's very laid back and just wants a friend! 

On June 4, 2017, Lego was adopted by a young lady from Durham, NB, where he'll be spoiled beyond his wildest dreams.  He loved the whole family immediately when he first met them and we know he'll be extremely well loved in return.  We look forward to lots of photos, Lego!  Take care!  Be a good boy!  Write soon!

** 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).

"Somerset" came to DunRoamin' from the Hartland area on November 18, 2016.  It appears he may have been struck by a car previously.  He was hypothermic, dehydrated, thin, very anaemic, had a high heart rate, was emaciated and had parasites as well.  He was not in good shape.  Somerset was born about May 17, 2013.

Somerset received the medical, social and loving attention that he deserved.  He began eating as though he believed there would never be enough food in this world.  He has become a cuddle cat who loves being patted and he will do almost anything to be held!  He has come a very long way and is happy, healthy and eager to start his new life.  Next step:  a loving home and family. 

On May 24, 2017, Somerset was thrilled to go home with a gentleman to help him celebrate his birthday on May 25th!  Somerset now lives in Hartland where he will share his home with the family of his dreams.  Congratulations, Somerset.  Please send lots of photos!

"Blossom" came to DunRoamin' on January 24, 2017 from the NB SPCA, one of a very large number of cats who were living together who needed some help.  Blossom had ear mites and was pregnant.

Blossom was born about May 24, 2012.  She was vaccinated and received treatment for all parasites, as well as tested for FIV and FeLV.  She's very friendly and affectionate, and she's waiting for that perfect person to come take her home.  She has a great personality and is a beautiful pewter gray. 

On May 23, 2017, Blossom, now named Ellie, was adopted by a very nice lady from Woodstock where her new best friends will be two humans and a Lab.  Congratulations, Blossom!  You've got it made now!!  Don't forget to send us lots of family photos!!

"Eloise" came to DunRoamin' on May 2, 2017.  She originally came to us on December 6, 2013 from Fredericton where she was one of 143 animals who were seized by the NB SPCA.  Eloise had an eye infection, fleas, was very thin, dehydrated and had periodontal disease and stomatitis which required the removal of several teeth. 

Eloise is timid around strangers and although she doesn't mind being patted, she doesn't enjoy being picked up.  She gets along well with other cats and loves a soft, cushy bed.  She particularly enjoys sleeping on her human's pillow at night.  Eloise is FIV+ - please read below to learn about this.  She is healthy and hopes to go to a nice, quiet home where she'll be spoiled with her favourite love - canned food!!

On May 19, 2017, Eloise was fortunate to go to the most loving home she will ever know!  She has full run of the house and loves her cat friends.  And she especially loves sleeping on her mom's bed.  Congratulations, Eloise!  Home!!

"London" came back to us on May 2, 2017.  She originally came to us on August 24, 2009 from Oakland where she was found with two kittens, Paris and Roam, on the dump road where she was trying to keep her family alive.  She had worms, fleas, earmites and was starving from trying to survive and keep her kittens alive also.  All became healthy and were adopted.

London is extremely loving and affectionate - her favourite thing to do is to be loved!  She happily greets all humans and displays her wonderful personality by purring, rubbing and head butting.  London was born about February 7, 2008.  She is beautiful with her shiny pewter gray fur!

On May 17, 2017, London was very happy to greet the new love of her life.  A young man from Woodstock had entered her room and she was immediately smitten, as was he.  When he came to pick her up, she immediately got up and ran to him, then went into the carrier that would take her home.  Congratulations, London!  A match made in heaven!!  Write soon!

 

"Blaire" originally came to DunRoamin' on October 30, 2012 from Woodstock where she was an orphan found all alone with no mother.  She was born about October 15, 2012, so was only about two weeks old and would never have had a chance.  On December 4, 2012, she was adopted by a family in Plaster Rock.

On May 2, 2017, Blaire returned to DunRoamin' due to circumstances beyond her control.  She is a very fortunate little girl, because . . .

On May 2, 2017, Blaire was adopted by a family in Plaster Rock.  She will have a wonderful home there with her new feline siblings.  Congratulations, Blaire!  Have a great life!  Please stay in touch!

"Joel" came to DunRoamin' on March 15, 2017.  He had been seized by the NBSPCA in northern NB on February 10, 2017 and was very sick with upper respiratory infection.  He began doing much better with some love, care and medication and was soon neutered and neutered and had his teeth cleaned as required.  Joel was born about February 10, 2013.

Joel is a sweetheart.  He head butts, purrs and kneads constantly, now that he's feeling so much better.  He is very active and loves to run and play.  He is fully vaccinated and is hoping for a loving family very soon.

On April 30, 2017, Joel was adopted by a young couple from the Woodstock area where he will have the best life ever and be loved (and played with) beyond his wildest dreams!  Congratulations, Joel!  Send pictures!!!

"Judson" came to DunRoamin' from Upper Brighton on March 8, 2017.  He had been seeking shelter from the cold in the cellar of a home in which a furnace was providing some heat.  The people there were feeding him, but they had their full quota of cats to look after, so he needed some help.  He was born about March 8, 2016.

Judson had fleas, earmites and the normal array of parasites.  He also had a swollen nose, superficial healing wounds and enlarged lymph nodes, all of which were treated.  He also had an upper respiratory infection.  He is VERY social and loving, so he's belonged to someone at some point in his life.   He has now been neutered.

On April 8, 2017, Judson went to his new home in Fredericton where he'll be a friend for another ex-DunRoamin' cat, Polly.  Congratulations, Judson, you did great!  Best home ever!!  Send us family photos!!

"Snicket" came to us from the Greenfield area on January 18, 2017 and he was in rough shape.  He was emaciated, very dehydrated, starving, had very inflamed ears, many ear mites, had irritation around his nostrils and anus and the tip of his right ear was frostbitten.  It eventually fell off, and some of the pads on his feet did the same, due to the frostbite injuries he received while out in the cold all by himself.  He was just a baby, born about May 18, 2016.

All Snicket's problems were immediately addressed.  He got a nice warm bed, medication for what ailed him, lots of healthy, nutritious food and people who will care for him exactly as he deserved to be cared for.  Snicket was "a work in progress," but he made great strides and was soon ready to go to a loving home.  He's heard so many stories about how wonderful a family can be for a little kitten that he just can't wait to experience it for himself! 

On March 31, 2017, he got to experience it for himself when a young couple from Woodstock came to make him their very own.  He will now live with Maxie, another ex-DunRoamin' cat and they'll be best friends forever.  Congratulations, Snicket!!

"Ezra" originally came to us on April 12, 2014 from Florenceville where he had a very serious urinary tract infection.  He had become blocked and required serious medical intervention in order to save him.  His owners were unable to undertake the expense of his medical care so he became a ward of DunRoamin'.  He easily overcame his infection and now eats Medi-Cal Urinary S/O food which will ensure he never becomes blocked again.  He was adopted on December 8, 2014 but did not get along with another pet in the home so he came back to us on January 2, 2015.  He thought he would prefer to be an "only" cat in the household because he loves all the attention for himself, but he moved in with five other cats and has done just fine!

Ezra is a very outgoing and loving boy who was born about October 15, 2012.  He is a very happy and affectionate cat who loves people and is the first to ask for a cuddle or to be picked up.

On March 23, 2017, Ezra was adopted by a couple in Jacksonville where he'll be a friend for another ex-DunRoamin' cat and be spoiled for the rest of his life.  Congratulations, Ezra!

"Escobar" came to DunRoamin' from the Hartland area on October 6, 2016.  He was living near an abandoned house and thought to be feral and sick, but other than some fractured teeth, he had a good body condition and was healthy - he just didn't have the home or family he dreamed of.  He loves to be patted and have his back scratched at the base of his tail - elevator butt!!!  He was born about October 6, 2011.  He loves to knead, purr, head butt and he most definitely loves to love people!

Escobar developed a minor medical problem which was treated with steroids and he's just perfectly fine now, although we've learned that he should not use steroids - he could become diabetic.  He can't wait for a home and a family to love!

Escobar was neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and was treated for parasites.  He is a very nice boy who anxiously awaits a home where he will be safe, loved and cared for.  He has much to give in return. He recently re-developed diabetes, but . . .

. . . on March 21, 2017, he was adopted by a young lady in Dieppe who is more than skilled, interested and willing to provide him with the medical care he requires as a diabetic.  We are hoping that very soon his condition will lessen - even disappear, but in the meantime we are so grateful that he will have a loving family in which to blossom.  Thank you, Robyn.  Please stay in touch often.

"Bowen" was returned to DunRoamin' on January 16, 2017 from Riverbank where he had lived since October 20, 2013.  He had developed crystals in his urine and his owner was unable to care for him.  He had originally come to DunRoamin' on August 10, 2013 when he was abandoned in a box outside the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  He was born about May 15, 2013.

Bowen is a beautiful long-haired boy who is exceptionally friendly and affectionate.  He is laid back, unassuming and quiet - he just likes his lovin'!  If there's a human in the room, he's rubbing, head butting and purring while he sneaks up onto a lap to get that extra bit of affection.  He requires a diet of Urinary S/O food and he is medication to clear his urinary tract infection.  He is also on an appetite stimulant to ensure he eats appropriately, but we're hoping in the near future he'll be 100% again.  It's been a long haul!

On March 11, 2017, Bowen was chosen to live with a family in the Bath area.  He requires medication, frequent weigh-ins and prescription food to ensure he doesn't block again and his family is committed to ensuring that he will get back to perfect health.  Congratulations, Bowen!

"Burnett" came to us on November 6, 2016 when she and her three kittens, Flynn, Kitler and Kylee were abandoned at the Carleton Co-Op Country Store in Florenceville, no doubt more unwanted victims of people who have not spayed or neutered their pets.  There used to be shelter and a cow barn where they might have been able to keep warm and find food, but those are long gone and the heavy traffic in the area was very dangerous for them.

Thankfully, the kind and supportive staff of the Country Store offered to foster and care for these little ones.  Burnett was born about November 6, 2015, so already had a family of kittens at the age of only one year.  She was perfectly healthy and sociable, so both she and her kittens had belonged to someone at some point in the very recent past.  We thank Bill Groves and his staff at the Carleton Co-Op Country Store for stepping up, taking responsibility and giving these four the care they needed and deserved.

Burnett is friendly, laid back, vaccinated, spayed and ready for a home. She lived with a dozen other cats and loved them all!

On March 9, 2017, we are SO happy to report that Burnett was adopted, along with her friend Vayne (see below) by a very nice couple from Perth-Andover.   We are so happy that they got to have a home together.  Thanks for adopting them!  Please send lots of pictures.  Congratulations, Burnett!!

"Vayne" came to us on the afternoon of January 23, 2017 from Clearview where he had been found in a snowbank on the side of the road.  He was scared, so not easy to catch, but the lady persevered and when he got in snow too deep for him to move quickly she was able to catch him.  She checked with neighbours, but no one seemed to know him.  Although he was scared, it was obvious that he was familiar with homes and people.

Vayne was unneutered, very heavily matted and full of burdocks.  He must have been cold, since the matts would not allow his body to retain as much heat, since his fur would not have the ability to do it's job of keeping him warm.  Vayne had to be completely shaved to remove the matts and burdocks.  He's happy to be safe, warm and to have a full belly.  We'd like to thank Vayne's rescuer for saving him and for the generous donation she brought to help with his neuter, vaccines, FeLV/FIV tests, parasite control, food and any additional medical care he may require.  We are so grateful for your donation to help this little guy.  He really is a sweetheart.

On March 9, 2017, Vayne hit the jackpot.  He was adopted into the loving family of a very nice couple in Perth-Andover.  As an added bonus, his friend Burnett (see above) was also adopted to keep him company.  Thanks for giving them such a great home!  Congratulations to all!!

"Petal" 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.  Petal had ear mites and an upper respiratory infection which was treated, but she was otherwise healthy.  She could have very easily have become much more sick without the medical intervention she received.  She's very cute and affectionate.  

Petal was born about November 22, 2016.  She was vaccinated and received treatment for all parasites, as well as tested for FIV and FeLV.   Her beautiful pewter colouring and her gorgeous green eyes ensured she had many people who would have liked to welcome her to their home, but she had already stolen the heart of a gentleman, so . . .

On March 4, 2017, Petal moved to Dieppe where she's now the very best new friend of a couple who will love her forever.  She is very fortunate to have such a loving family and we're thankful for the home they've given her and for the wonderful and generous show of support they have provided for the strays to come in the near future.  Thank you so very much.  Please write soon, Petal!

"Yeti" and "Kyla" came to us on January 7, 2017 where they had originally come from the Wakefield area where their siblings had been part of a seizure from the NB SPCA.   They were born approximately October 6, 2016.  They had worms, earmites and were vomiting and had diarrhea which took some time to cure.  They also had upper respiratory infection which required ongoing medication and care.

They soon became much healthier with a good diet, medication and lots of care.  Upon examination, it was determined that Kyla had an ulcer on her eye and that both knees had luxating patellas, a condition in which the kneecap "floats."  It is our hope that as she grows this will not be a problem.  Her eye is now perfectly fine, thanks to vet care and proper medical intervention.  It was also learned that Yeti, the little boy, had at least four and probably five cracked ribs - old fractures that had already healed.  Seeing as he was only three months old when he arrived with us, we're sad that he had to experience such pain at such a young age.   All that changed the day these two little beauties arrived at DunRoamin' though, and now their lives are about to change again, because . . .

On March 4, 2017, Yeti and Kyla were adopted by a very nice lady in Oromocto.  They will now be new friends for Hazel, another ex-DunRoamin' stray and her other four-footed family members.  Congratulations, Yeti and Kyla!  Please don't forget to send us lots of photos so we can watch how much more beautiful you become!!


Hocus

"Fusion" and "Sinclair" came to us on October 26, 2016 from Bristol with their friend Drake when their owner passed away and they had no one to care for them.  Fusion was born about June 24, 2005 and Sinclair was born about October 6, 2013.  Fusion had fleas and was overweight but was already neutered.  As he has a tendency to develop crystals in his urine, he eats a special diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O & Satiety food.  We have had many cats on this diet and it works perfectly - we've never had a problem once they're eating this food!

Fusion was somewhat timid, but was soon happy and cuddling.  Now that he's become familiar with all his friends and new home, we're happy to report that he's much more of a friendly cuddle cat.  He certainly does love his friend Sinclair, who was originally scared as well.  He, too, is on a diet to help reduce his weight to a healthy level, and they can't wait to get to a home where they can lose weight normally by running and playing!

On February 28, 2017, Fusion and Sinclair met a young lady who already has a DunRoamin' cat who would like to have feline friends.  Fusion and Sinclair now live in Jacksonville with Hocus and their canine friend, Buck.  Congratulations to all!  Please write often and send lots of photos!!

"Tansey" came to DunRoamin' on October 5, 2012 from the Centreville area where she stood the danger of being drowned as she was an unwanted stray.  She's a beautiful pewter and white and is very affectionate.  She was born about October 1, 2011.

Tansey was initially timid, but she's changed her mind about that, after having been fostered by a great couple in Wakefield who showed her the joy of a loving family.  She eventually came back to us at DunRoamin' to find a permanent home, and . . .

. . . on February 27, 2017, she hit the jackpot!  She and her friend Guadalupe (see below) were chosen as new best friends for a young military lady in Oromocto.  They will have the run of the place and have the life of which they've been dreaming.  Don't forget to send photos, Tansey!

"Guadalupe" came from St Joseph, NB on October 14, 2016 as a rescue from the SPCA.  She had minor injuries on her tail, foot and nose, possibly consistent with being trapped and attempting to get herself free.  She was born about April 15, 2015.

Guadalupe was initially timid and scared, but since she's had lots of love, attention, food and comfort, she thinks she actually might like people!  She is a beautiful orange tabby and she's very happy to think that one day very soon she may actually have a loving home.

On February 27, 2017, Guadalupe met a young lady from Oromocto.  She is now the best friend of this young military woman.  And to make it all that much better, her friend Tansey (see above) got to go with her!  Congratulations to all!!  Thank you, Rachel!

"Fontaine" came to us on December 6, 2014 from the Oakland area where she and her friend Barrymore (who has since been adopted) were part of a colony that was inspected by the NBSPCA.  Neither Fontaine nor her sister were doing well, so they were brought to us for help.

Fontaine was born about December, 2010, was pregnant and had a really bad case of upper respiratory infection.  She also had bad ear mites.  She was spayed and her medical needs were all addressed.  She was slightly timid, until you patted her!  Then she showed how much she liked it.

Fontaine's shyness has moved on and she is happy to live with a dozen other cats with whom she gets along royally.  She loves to play and likes lots of attention and affection.  She is best friends with Goochi with whom she loves to cuddle and sleep (although Goochi steals most of her bed!)  She enjoys spending time on her exercise wheel - you can see a video of it on DunRoamin's Facebook page!

On February 22, 2017, Fontaine met a very nice family from Woodstock.  She and her friend Elisa (see below) are now the newest family members and they love their four new human sisters and brother.  Congratulations, Fontaine!  Maybe your new dad will build you a cat wheel!!

"Elisa" came to us on August 17, 2016 from Smithfield where she had been dropped at a home and was obviously injured.  Veterinary examination showed her to have a broken jaw.  She was emaciated, had a high temperature and had maggots in some open wounds on her left hind leg.  Both front legs showed injury and she also had a tooth which had been knocked out.  She was most probably struck by a vehicle several days ago.  Elisa was born about February 17, 2015.

Elisa, named after the six-year old daughter of her saviour, is a sweet little girl who is happy to have her injuries treated, a warm bed, pain medications and all the food she is able to eat.   Her injuries all healed nicely and she eats up a storm.  Now that she is pain free and comfortable in her surroundings, she is cuddly and loving, obviously already familiar with humans.  She is ready, willing and able to go to a permanent home and she can't wait.  She'd particularly like it if there were young children - she loves them!

On February 22, 2017, Elisa met a young family from Woodstock who immediately fell in love with her, and vice versa.  She and her friend Fontaine (see above) are now permanent family members.  Congratulations to everyone!  Please send lots of photos!!

"Wilbur" came to us from near Woodstock on January 4, 2017 when he and five siblings were surrendered to the SPCA from a place overflowing with cats.  All his siblings, Windsor, Wellington, Whispurr, Wren and Whitney were black and VERY cute! All had fleas and ear mites which were treated.   They were born about October 5, 2016.

Wilbur is a cute and affectionate little boy.  He loves to sleep in a cat pile and is very loving.

On February 23, 2017, Wilbur was adopted by a very nice lady.  He will now reside in Pembroke with her.  As an added bonus, his sister, Whispurr (see below) was also adopted! He can still sleep in a cat pile with her!  Congratulations, Wilbur!  Have a wonderful life!  Send lots of photos!

All had earmites and fleas which were treated.  Whispurr had upper respiratory but with a little love, care and medication, she became fine.  Whispurr is a sweet little girl who loves sleeping and playing with her siblings.

On February 23, 2017, we learned that she would have a loving home in Pembroke with a wonderful lady who also invited her brother, Wilbur (see above) to join the family!  Congratulations, Whispurr!  Have a great life!

"Hazel" 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.  Hazel had ear mites but was otherwise healthy.   She's also very cute and affectionate.   She's a very friendly little girl.

Hazel was born about August 10, 2016.  She was vaccinated, spayed and received treatment for all parasites, as well as tested for FIV and FeLV.  She was initially very reserved but has become very friendly and affectionate as she became more comfortable with her human friends.   Hazel loves to play and she'll grab your heart with those big, round, beautiful green eyes!

On February 22, 2017, Hazel met a very nice lady from Oromocto who thought she was the most beautiful kitten ever!  Hazel has been welcomed as the newest member of this family and she couldn't be happier!  Thanks for giving her a loving home.  Please send lots of photos!

"Lupin" 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.  Lupin had ear mites but was otherwise healthy.   She's also very cute and affectionate.   She was initially a little bit timid, but quickly got over that once she realized she had lots of human friends to cuddle her.

Lupin was born about November 22, 2016.  She was vaccinated and received treatment for all parasites, as well as tested for FIV and FeLV.  She was also treated for upper respiratory infection.  She is trusting, friendly, affectionate and hopes for a family with the same characteristics!

On February 19, 2017, Lupin met a young lady who fit all those qualities.  She now lives in Glassville where she is this young lady's best friend.  Congratulations, Lupin, and congratulations to your new family too!  Send lots of photos!!

All had earmites and fleas which were treated.  Wren had upper respiratory but her medication helped her quickly overcome that.  She also had a tail injury which required a part of her tail to be amputated, but she's fine now.  She's anxious for a loving family to care for her.

On February 19, 2017, Wren's dream came true.  She is now part of the family of a very nice young lady who also has Luna, formerly Diega DunRoamin'.  And if that's not enough wonderfulness, Wren's sister Whitney (see below) got to go along, too!!!  Thank you!  Have a great life!  Send lots of photos!

Whitney and her siblings had complete run of their very own room which they enjoyed tremendously. But the best day of all was . . .

. . . February 19, 2017, when she was adopted by a young lady who also has Luna, formerly Diega DunRoamin'.  And Whitney's sister, Wren (see above), got to go along, too!  They all now live in Truro, NS but will be visiting Carleton County often!  Congratulations, Whitney!

"Flint" 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.  He lived outside so did not know "warm and safe," but he does now!  Flint had ear mites but was otherwise healthy.   He's also very cute and friendly, now that he knows what it's like to have an indoor home!

On February 18, 2017, he met a young lady who is making his fondest wish come true.  He will now be her very best cuddly, loving friend.  Now an official resident of Richibucto Road, Flint is very excited about his new life.  Please send us lots of photos of you and your new family in your new home!

"Gandalf" 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.  Gandalf had ear mites and an upper respiratory infection but was otherwise healthy.   He was also very cute and was a little bit timid at first, but he became comfortable very quickly!!

Gandalf was born about November 24, 2016.  He was vaccinated and received treatment for all parasites, as well as tested for FIV and FeLV.  He had a small problem with his breathing for a short time, but he's received treatment and observation and we're sure he's going to be fine.  He's very friendly and affectionate.

On February 17, 2017, Gandalf was adopted by a lady from Hay Settlement where he'll live very happily with her and her four-footed family which includes another cat who is virtually identical to Gandalf in appearance.  Gandalf will now be known as "PeteTheCat".

Katy Purry" came to DunRoamin' on November 12, 2016 from the Jacksonville area where she had been a stray who had arrived at a home on Hallowe'en.  She was born about June 12, 2016, is a buff orange tabby and she is BEAUTIFUL!  Unfortunately, she had arrived with an injury to her left hind leg - a degloving injury where the skin had been removed from her leg, leaving it with a strong requirement for medical intervention.   The intervention Katy Purry had received to date had not improved her situation and her rescuers were unable to continue with the financial or personal requirements, so Katy Purry came to us. 

She is very sweet, quiet and grateful to be the recipient of such concern by her rescuers and her new DunRoamin' friends.  It was initially thought that she may require amputation of her leg, but her vet was determined that she would not allow her to lose her leg.  Dr Monteith performed a procedure to help regrow the skin over her missing toes which has been very successful.  Once the fur grows back, she'll be just fine, although she won't have pads or toes on her foot.  However, she'll have a great new life. 

On February 11, 2017, Katy was adopted to a loving home in Jacksonville.  She's been through a lot, so there she will enjoy the love, care and family that she has always deserved.  We're happy to have played a part in your new life, Katy.  Please send us photos.

"Allegra" came to us on November 1, 2016 from the Hartland area.  She was a stray with an injured tail whom people had been feeding for about two months, but her tail was not healing and they could not help her.  She was born about June 1, 2016.

Allegra had a degloving injury (the skin had been torn off her tail) which was infected.  Due to the extent of the injury, Allegra's tail had to be amputated, so it's now only about an inch long, but she is perfectly fine!  She's quite a purrer, also.  She was quickly back to being the happy, healthy little girl she should be.  She's very happy to have a soft bed, a towel ring, lots of food and good friends to take good care of her.  Now, if she could just get a permanent and loving home . . .  Yeah.  That would change her entire world.

And on February 10, 2017, her world did change!  She is now the proud new member of a family from Tracy, NB, where she'll be the cuddle cat they've always wanted!  Congratulations, Allegra!  Send us lots of photos!!

"Colby" came to DunRoamin' on October 21, 2016 from the Beechwood area where he had been a stray for more than two years.  Approximately one month ago, people realized that he had what was described as a four-by-two-inch open wound on his neck.  As no one was willing or able to care for him, he was accepted by DunRoamin'.  Colby was born about October 1, 2014.

Colby was diagnosed with a 1.5-inch infected open wound on the right side of his neck.  His eyes were irritated, he had a discharge from his anus and tail and he had puncture marks on his scrotum.  He also had a large number of fleas - those can be very irritating and painful!

Colby underwent medical treatment to bring him back to optimal health.  He was on antibiotics for his infected neck injury and medications to help clear up his eye irritation.  He was neutered and is perfectly healthy again.  He will be happy to go to a safe and loving home - he deserves it.  It's obviously been a hard go for him, and he's hoping for a loving family to change the rest of his entire life!

On February 6, 2017, Colby hit the jackpot.  He now lives with a young couple in Fredericton where he'll be the very-loved best friend of both.  Congratulations, Colby!  Please send us photos of you and your family!




Thora

"Asher" came to DunRoamin' on September 19, 2016 from Stickney.  He was a stray who had come to a home several days before needing medical assistance which they could not provide.  He was accepted by DunRoamin' and several tests were conducted to determine why he had pain and difficulty in his hind legs.  He had a very difficult time walking and would spend more time rolling around in his kennel than trying to stand.  These tests determined that he had laterally luxating patellas - his kneecaps dislocate on their own, or move out of their normal position. 

On October 27, 2016 Asher underwent surgery to correct this problem and within two days he was doing so well that he could walk again!!!  He is extremely affectionate and happy to have his knees fixed and lots of people to wait on him!  He happily walks upright and he's healing well with lots of care, attention and laser treatments to help. 

Asher is a very sweet boy.  He is very vocal and loves people.  He would like to be someone's cuddle cat, and he'd be EXCELLENT at it!!  He is very loving and affectionate and loves to head butt and play.  He loves attention and would love to be someone's favourite house kitty. 

On February 5, 2017, Asher's dream of having his very own family came true when he was adopted by a gentleman from Florenceville who adopted Thora on October 7, 2017.  They both decided that Thora should have a feline friend, so now she and Asher are best buds!  Congratulations to all!

"Lief" and his three siblings came to us from Upper Brighton on May 17, 2016 where they had been trying to survive at an abandoned house. They had no one to care for them.  Two of his siblings were very wild and preferred to live in a barn, so they were very fortunate to move to the Ark Animal Sanctuary in Houlton, ME, where they found caring homes.  Lief's sister, Tesla, is still with us and awaiting a home of her own.

Lief (pronounced "Life") was initially scared but is now a cuddle cat.  He is now only slightly hesitant to be picked up, but once he's in your arms, he hums and purrs and kneads, happy to be held and cuddled.  He is easily getting over his hesitation about new people and he loves his team of servants!  He was born about July 29, 2015. 

On January 30, 2017, Lief met a young lady who had just moved back to Florenceville who was looking for a cuddle cat to keep her cat company.  It didn't take long for Lief to convince her that he was her boy!  Congratulations, Lief!  Please don't forget to send lots of photos!  We're looking forward to hearing how your new life is progressing!

 
Stevia & Splenda  

Three young kittens came to us on the evening of September 27, 2016.  "Stevia," "Splenda" and Sugar had been found at Pizza Delight in Woodstock.  People had taken them in but were unwilling 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. 

All three kittens were vaccinated, spayed, treated for all medical concerns and tested for FeLV and FIV.  They were scruffy and dirty, but quickly became very healthy and shiny white under the love and care of their foster father and family.  Thank you so much for helping them!

On January 29, 2017, Stevia and Splenda were chosen by a very nice lady from Newbridge to live in her home.  She offers them love, care and companionship forever and they are happy to accept.  Congratulations, little white kittens!  Send us lots of family photos!

"Ingersol" came to us on January 19, 2017 from the Nackawic area where he was a stray who came to the door of a man who realized he needed help.  He had a large wound on his left front leg, most probably a bite wound, which had been there so long it had festered and abscessed.

Ingersol was treated for his injury.  He was put on antibiotic medication for the infection, was neutered, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and underwent laser therapy for his infected wound.  He's very gentle and sociable.  He was born about July 18, 2013.  He's obviously familiar with people and homes, so we're thinking he's been lost for a while. 

On January 27, 2017, Ingersol's family attended to claim him.  He will now go back to his home in Nackawic.  Stay safe, Ingersol!

"Allan" 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.  Allan had ear mites and an injured and infected tail which required medical attention.

Allan was born about January 24, 2015 and appears to be a Siamese mix.  He is very loving and affectionate.  He was treated for his injury, neutered, vaccinated and received treatment for all parasites.  He was also tested for FIV and FeLV, both of which proved negative. 

On January 24, 2017, we learned that Allan had found a permanent home where he will be safe and warm indoors forever!  Congratulations, Allan!

 

"Elf" came to us on December 21, 2016 when he was found curled up under an overpass near Greenfield.  He was examined by our vet who determined that he was born about September 15, 2016.  Elf was diagnosed with "synechia" which can be the result of untreated ulcers.  His eyes have scars on the outside of each cornea - the outside edges have grey patches, meaning that although he has sight, he does not necessarily see well on his left and right periphery - he'd have to turn his head to see to the side.

Elf is a beautiful little boy.  He is cuddly, affectionate and playful.  He's obviously grateful to be warm and safe and of course, everyone loves to have lots of food in their belly.  He had earmites and received medication to treat them!  His favourite toy is a mouse on an elastic which he will stretch out, let it go and then chase!  He is adorable!

On January 23, 2017, Elf became the best birthday present for a young lady who is a wonderful DunRoamin' supporter.  He now lives with a young couple in Greenfield where he has a new dog and a new cat sibling - lots of friends to play with.  And of course, a warm bed to sleep on with his two new favourite humans!  Congratulations, Elf!  Keep sending photos - we love to get them!

"Adrian" came to DunRoamin' on January 3, 2017 from the Beechwood area.  It was reported that he had been a stray for a couple of months and although people were feeding him, no one was willing or able to take him in.  He was brought to us after he sustained an injury to his left shoulder.  His birth date was estimated at about January 3, 2014.

Adrian was diagnosed with fleas and earmites and was prescribed antibiotics for his injury which appeared to be an infected open wound about 1" in diameter, quite probably the result of a bite.  We're not sure how he sustained it, but he will never need to worry about being cold or in danger again.  Adrian also had upper respiratory infection which resulted in broken vessels in his nose displaying in blood spatter each time he sneezed.  He is also being treated with medication to combat this.  We're certain he'll be fine soon.

On January 18, 2017, Adrian was adopted by a lady from Beechwood.  She promises that he will be an indoor-only cat and he'll never have to worry about being cold or having to search or beg for food and shelter again.  He will remain indoors where it's warm, safe and where he will be loved forever!  Congratulations, Adrian!

"Mensa" came to us on the evening on January 15, 2016, when she was found in the parking lot of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic in the cold and dark.  Fortunately, a staff member happened to be on site - otherwise she would have spent another night outdoors and the temperature had already dropped to -17*C and was getting colder.  That's way too cold for both man and beast! 

Mensa was hungry and shaking with cold.  She had fleas, her paws were dirty and she had some matts in her fur, so she'd been uncared for recently.  She also had some tartar on her teeth and minor gingivitis.  She is a beautiful calico who is friendly and affectionate, but most obviously so grateful to have found someone who would care for her, give her food and a warm place to sleep.

On January 17, 2017, we got some great news!  Mensa's family had seen her on our website.  She had gotten out of her home in August, 2016 and had made her way all the way back to us.  She is grateful to the young lady who found her and gave her refuge again at DunRoamin'.  (Originally known as Teaghan, she'd been adopted in March, 2008).  Her family is glad to have her back and we're grateful she made her way to us so that we could help her get back home.  It's been a long journey, but you're back where you're supposed to be.  We are so glad you are safe.  Congratulations.

"Reeve" came to DunRoamin' on May 19, 2016, when he was born to Tesla, a stray from the Hartland area who came to us as she was living under a porch and had no real care.  He got all the love, care and nutrition he needed while he was fostered by a DunRoamin' friend and he certainly flourished.  He is a beautiful little black and white boy.  He and his siblings all had upper respiratory infection but were quickly healthy once again with care from their vet and vet techs.

Reeve is a very handsome, affectionate young kitten.  He looked forward to being old enough to have a permanent home!  He has long guard hairs in his coat and he's a playful little fella!

On January 16, 2017, his wish came true.  He now lives with a family in Woodstock and is very happy to start his new life.  He thanks his foster family who has cared for him these past eight months.  He will miss you!

"Dizzy" came back to us on August 15, 2012.  She had originally come to DunRoamin' on June 28, 2011 from Pole Hill where she and her family had been found closed in a hot shed without food or water.  She was born about May 25, 2011 and was adopted to a home in Florenceville on March 10, 2012.  She had developed a bladder infection, but became perfectly healthy again in a short period of time thanks to a tiny bit of medication which solved her problem quickly.

Dizzy was a little bit timid at first, but was quickly well over that.  She particularly seems to be attracted to men!  She lived with several other cats with whom she got along just fine.  On August 13, 2013 she and her friend Barbarossa went to a foster home where they lived a life of luxury.  They then returned to DunRoamin' awaiting a home.  Dizzy must eat a diet of Medi-Cal Urinary S/O food to ensure that crystals do not develop.

On January 8, 2017, Dizzy hit the jackpot.  She is now the new best friend of these two fine young gentleman and she will live with them in Holmesville for ever and ever!!  Congratulations, Diz!  You've got the best home and the best family EVER!

"Drake" came to us on October 26, 2016 from Bristol with his friends Sinclair and Fusion after his owner passed away and he had no one to care for him.  He was born about June 14, 2006.  Drake had fleas, earmites and was overweight.  He was already neutered.  He was vaccinated, his parasites were treated and he has been placed on a special diet to help him lose weight.

Drake is very friendly and laid back.  He loves everyone he meets and loves to be patted, scratched and talked to.  He is definitely a purrer and would love to have a home.  He's ten, which definitely makes him a senior, but he has SOOOOO much to give! 

On January 8, 2017, Drake met a young lady from Perth-Andover who thought he would be the most prefect fit for her family.  Drake now has his very own home and family where he'll get all the attention and love that he deserves.  Don't forget to send lots of pictures and stories about your new life, Drake.  Congratulations!

"Hampton" came to DunRoamin' on the morning of November 21, 2016 from the Jacksonville area after having been found on the road all alone the night before.  He was born about October 1, 2016. 

Hampton was thin, hungry, cold, scared and had severe swelling of both eyelids.  He had a corneal ulcer on his right eye and a sore throat.  He was not in good shape and is fortunate he was found and brought for help.

Hampton was placed under medical care where he improved each and every day, thanks to a little bit of medication and good care.  He is grateful for the food and warm, safe place to which he has been brought.  His eyes are improving significantly and the ulcer on his right eye is getting better each and every day.  He was in pretty rough shape, but with the medication and professional care he's getting, he's doing SO well!  Initially, it was thought that he might have to lose his right eye, but just look at him now!  Donations to help with his care were gratefully accepted here

Hampton has become a very playful, happy and energetic little kitten who is anxiously awaiting that family who will love him forever.    He'd love to have feline brothers or sisters to play with, too!

On January 5, 2016, we learned that Hampton would indeed receive his dream home. An exceptionally nice couple from Fredericton adopted Gibby (now known as Sweets) and Cory Matthews (now known as Oscar) on December 10, 2016.  On that date, they also met Hampton.  Now, they've returned to invite him to join the rest of their family!  He'll be a new friend for their black Lab, Mallow, and for their kitties Winston, Horatio, Sweets and Oscar.  Congratulations!!!  Yahoo!  What a way to start the new year!

ADOPTED CATS 2017

"Freddy" came to DunRoamin' on October 14, 2017 from New Denmark where he had been found in a box on the side of a road along with his four siblings.  There was no mother to care for them, and there was no help available for them in their area.  Freddy, Kit, Langdon, Sabrina and Chucky were born approximately September 23, 2017.  Freddy and his siblings were dehydrated, thin and had fleas.  They were fortunate to be accepted into the care of a loving vet tech where they were soon eating away and putting on weight in no time. 

Freddy loves attention and talks the most.  He is the tiniest of his siblings and is a huge cuddler.  He has a beautiful orange tabby coat which is the darkest of all his siblings.

On November 17, 2017, Freddy got some wonderful news.  He met a really nice lady from Lakeville who already has an ex-DunRoamin' cat, Selma.  Freddy and his sister Sabrina (see below) were both invited to come join their family!  Congratulations!  Please send lots of family photos!! 

"Sabrina" came to DunRoamin' on October 14, 2017 from New Denmark where she had been found in a box on the side of a road along with her four siblings.  There was no mother to care for them, and there was no help available for them in their area.  Sabrina, Kit, Freddy, Langdon and Chucky were born approximately September 23, 2017.  Sabrina and her siblings were dehydrated, thin and had fleas.  They were fortunate to have the care of a loving vet tech where they were soon eating away and putting on weight in no time. 

Sabrina is the largest of her siblings and the most independent, being the only girl!  She eats the most and bosses the boys around!  She's got attitude just as much as she's got cuteness!  She is very busy and won't be held long - there are way too many interesting things to play with and figure out!!

On November 17, 2017, Sabrina hit the jackpot!  She was officially adopted by a very nice lady in Lakeville where she'll live with another ex-DunRoamin' cat, Selma! And to sweeten the pot even more, her brother Freddy (see above) got to go with her!  Congratulations!!  Please send photos and tell us about your new life!

"Andy" came to us on August 13, 2017 from the Gordonsville area where he, his four brothers and one sister (Bullseye, Buzz, Hamm, Woody and Jessie) were found all alone.  An adult female had been struck and killed on the road three days previously and we deduced that these little kittens were her family.

All kittens were tiny, dehydrated and hungry.  They were estimated to have been born about August 2, 2017, so would not have survived for many more hours without their mother.  They are fortunate to have made it for help!

All six were fostered by three vet techs who volunteered to take on their care which included feeding them by syringe every three hours to ensure they were hydrated and got the nutrition they required to grow strong and healthy.  We can't begin to express our gratitude to Riley, Eryn and Kate for their assistance for these little ones.  What would they do without you?!?  What would we?

On November 15, 2017, Andy learned that he would officially join his foster family as a permanent family member.  He is ecstatic!  He loves his family and is grateful to get to stay with them.  Thanks, Eryn!  He's a lucky little boy!

"Franco" came to us on October 14, 2017 from Knoxford where he was found all alone on the road.  His injuries were serious and he had no one to help him.  Franco was born about July 14, 2017.

Franco's injuries consisted of the following:  most of his left front leg was missing, his lower lip was torn, his lower jaw was fractured, his lower canines were missing, he had wounds and bruising on his right hind leg and his tail had an injury that may have required his tail to be amputated.  Franco was very scared, of course, but we're glad he's with us for comfort, food and medical attention.  He is grateful to the people who donated in support of all his care.

On October 16, 2017, Franco underwent surgery to remove the remainder of his left front leg, his lower lip was reattached and he was neutered.   Good medical care insured that his tail did not require amputation - we're grateful for that.  He was fortunate to be chosen by a loving vet tech to be her foster kitty, so he received lots of medical care as well as love and attention.

UPDATE (October 23, 2017):  Franco's foster mother reports that Franco is initially timid and will run when you first enter the room.  However, once you get your hands on him he turns into a cuddler who will purr, roll and head butt.  He loves belly rubs - but his first instinct, probably because of his previous life, is to run.  He just needs some socialization to be secure in the fact that he is now 100% safe, sound and loved - that will come very quickly with the care of his foster mother. 

On November 15, 2017, Franco met his new mother for the first time when she traveled all the way from Halifax to take him to his forever home.  It was love at first sight and Franco immediately sensed kinship.  We look forward to seeing photos of you, your mom and your new sister, Luna.  Thanks to your mom for everything - we'll be happy to hear of your new life!  Please write often.

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

All Benedict's medical needs were addressed and he was neutered and vaccinated.  He is very loving and affectionate and loves to head butt and be cuddled. He claimed the rocking chair in our general population room where he lounged daily while his human servants waited on his every desire!  He is a beautiful boy!

Benedict eventually was diagnosed with a bladder infection and a small bladder stone but he's fine now.  He eats Urinary S/O food as a standard to ensure he doesn't get a bladder infection again.  He is one of our most loving and affectionate boys and he loves his friend, Hemo.

On November 15, 2017, Benedict was excited to learn that both he and his friend Hemo (see below) were invited to live with a very nice young lady in Burtt's Corner.  She already has a cat who eats Urinary S/O food and she's excited to have new family members!  You couldn't possibly have a better home, guys!  Congratulations!  Send pictures soon!!  Thanks to your new mother for adopting two best friends together!!

"Hemo" came back to DunRoamin' on June 6, 2017, due to health issues in his adoptive family.  He was originally found as a stray outside the Upper River Valley Hospital with no one to care for him.  He was born about 2006 and is a handsome and loving little boy.  He loves affection and will sit for hours if you'll just scratch his ears!  His big ol' eyes hold more love than you can imagine!

Upon routine examination, blood was discovered in his urine and bladder stones were the culprits.  The stones were removed and he's now perfectly fine!  He is currently eating a diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food which ensures no more stones can form.  You won't find a more affectionate orange tabby!

On November 15, 2017, Hemo was elated to learn that he would have a home with a very nice young lady in Burtt's Corner.  His friend Benedict (see above) got to go with him and he'll have the company of another cat who also loves Royal Canin Urinary S/O food!  Congratulations, Hemo!  You couldn't have found a better home and family!  Send us pictures soon!!

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

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

As of August, 2017, Peace has come a very long way.  Her favourite person is a young lady who volunteers and cares for her.  She loves to be carried around by her and loves to lay on her.  When she bonds, she really bonds! 

On November 10, 2017, Peace was adopted by a lovely lady from Woodstock.  Please stay in touch, Peace.  We can't wait to hear about your new home and new life!

"Dobrik" came to us from Stickney, NB, on July 7, 2017 where he had been dropped at a home approximately seven months prior.  Although the people were trying to feed him, when he became injured they were unable to provide medical assistance.  Dobrik was born about July 7, 2015.

Dobrik was diagnosed with multiple bite wounds on the back of his neck and forelimbs and had numerous scars from healed wounds.  He also had a wound on the left side of his face.  He had obviously not had a great life to date, but that all changed that day.  He was treated with antibiotics for his infections, provided with flea and worm medication and vaccinated and neutered.

Dobrik has very nice manners and is a sweet boy.  He's now perfectly healthy, happy and a going concern.  What will make him happy is a caring and loving home.   It's his dream!

On November 9, 2017, Dobrik's dream came true when he was welcomed into a family in Red Bridge.  He is very happy to know that he'll have a permanent home and get to watch TV and sleep on a bed with his new family!  What a life he's going to have!  Congratulations, Dobrik!  Write soon and send lots of pictures!!

"Brinkley" came to DunRoamin' on August 18, 2017 from the Perth area, along with his mom Brittany, her mom's friend Anwick and seven other kittens:  Thurso, Kintyre, Glasgow, Bethany, Bentley, Bartholomeow and Oban.  Both adults were thin and nursing kittens.  All eight kittens had fleas so bad that they were anaemic.  Sadly, little Thurso, Kintyre and Glasgow were not able to survive, despite immediate and intensive veterinary care.  The other five were placed under determined medical care.  Bethany was the only little girl from the litter. 

Brinkley is a very cute little orange tabby boy with four white socks and white on his chest and belly.  He loves his siblings and prefers to sleep in a cat pile.  He was born about August 2, 2017, and is exceptionally playful and cuddly. 

On November 5, 2017, he was officially adopted by one of our very favourite people.  He will live in Upper Brighton as a friend for Reuben and two ex-DunRoamin' cats now known as Ron and Don.  Congratulations, Brinkley!  You did GREAT!!

"Bentley" came to DunRoamin' on August 18, 2017 from the Perth area, along with his mom Brittany, her mom's friend Anwick and seven other kittens:  Thurso, Kintyre, Glasgow, Bethany, Bartholomeow, Brinkley and Oban.  Both adults were thin and nursing kittens.  All eight kittens had fleas to the point that they were anaemic.  Sadly, little Thurso, Kintyre and Glasgow were not able to survive, despite immediate and intensive veterinary care.  The other five were immediately placed under determined medical care.  Bethany was the only little girl from the litter. 

Bentley is a very cute little guy black and white guy with a white belly and white feet.  He was born about August 2, 2017.  He is a sweet, quiet little guy who loves his siblings and loves to cuddle.  He thanks Sarah for all the care he and his siblings have received, and especially for her generosity and compassion.  Where would they be without her??

On November 4, 2017, Bentley's mom came all the way from Fredericton to take him home.  He will now be spoiled royally, just like he deserves!  Congratulations, Bentley!  Please send lots of photos.  We'll all miss you, but most especially your foster mom!

"Emerald" and her sister Elena (see below) came to us on the afternoon of August 13, 2017 from the Williamstown area where they had been dropped off.  Compassionate people had tried to care for them, but as they were sick, did not have the resources to do so.

Emerald is grateful to them for their assistance.  She had upper respiratory infection and infected eyes.  They were born about June 15, 2017.  Both were treated and ded very well - they're perfectly happy, healthy, engergetic, loving little girls.  Her dream was to have a permanent home, perhaps along with her sister Elena.  Wouldn't that would be FANTASTIC??

On November 3, 2017, Emerald's dream came true when she and her sister Elena were chosen as the newest members of a wonderful young family in Florenceville.  There they will live out their lives in complete love.  And they have a brother, too - ex-DunRoamin' kitten, Tetris!  Congratulations!  We're so glad you got to stay together.  Please send us lots of updates as you grow!!

"Elena" and her sister Emerald (see above) came to us on the afternoon of August 13, 2017 from the Williamstown area where they had been dropped off recently. Compassionate people had tried to care for them, but as they were sick, did not have the resources to do so.

Elena is grateful to them for their assistance. She had upper respiratory infection and infected eyes, but good medication, good care and good lovin' soon made a drastic difference in her health - she's doing well - no problems at all!  She and her sister were born about June 15, 2017.  They love playing, wrestling, sleeping and cuddling together. 

On November 3, 2017, their prayers were answered.  All they had ever wished for was a loving family and a home they could both share with this familiy.  Elena and her sister Emerald now live in Florenceville with another ex-DunRoamin' kitten, Tetris.  Congratulations to everyone.  We're so very glad you got to go to a home together!  You'll have the life of which you've dreamed!  Write soon and tell us all about it!!

"Anwick" and her friend Brittany, mothers of eight kittens who were only about 16 days old, came to us on August 18, 2017 from the Perth area.  Both moms were very 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 them, 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.

Brittany ended up nursing all five kittens.  When needed, their food intake was augmented by syringe feedings by their new foster mother.  They were weighed daily to ensure they all gained weight appropriately.  All kittens soon became healthy and were adopted to loving homes. 

Anwick was born about August 8, 2016.  She waited patiently for a loving, caring home so that she could have a happy end to her story . . .

. . . and on October 30, 2017, she hit the jackpot when the gentleman who adopted Arwen (see below) the previous day returned to adopt her for company for Arwen!  We are SO happy for them both!  Congratulations!  Please stay in touch!! 

 

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

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

Dramah really wanted to trust people and she has since come a very long way.  She loves to be patted picked up and cuddled and dreams only of a warm, safe, loving home in the very near future.  She was fostered by a loving family in Florenceville where a young man fell head over heals in love with her, so . . .

. . . on October 29, 2017, she officially became a member of his family.  Dramah will move to Antigonish, NS, where she'll be the best friend of her admirer for the rest of her VERY happy life!  Congratulations, Dramah!  Thanks, Brandon!! 

"Arwen" came to us on September 1, 2017 from the Woodstock area where she was a homeless stray who had recently had kittens.  She was very thin, had parasites and halitosis.  She also had thickened intestines.  She was provided with all care and medication which helped with her medical needs.  With all this love and care, she soon became healthy, happy and ready for a home of her very own where she could display her gratitude for all the assistance she had received.

Arwen is a beautiful, quiet, sweet, loving cat who appears to be familiar enough with humans that she probably had a home of her own previously.  She was born about September 1, 2014.  Arwen waited patiently for that perfect person to walk through the door . . .

On October 29, 2017, her wait ended.  A gentleman from Glassville was her chosen family and she now lives there happily!  He had very little say in the matter - she chose him!  Congratulations to both!  Write soon, Arwen!!

"Miss Hap" came to us from the Canterbury area on August 2, 2017.  She was born about August 2, 2010.  She was a stray who was trying to survive all alone but was not doing well.  She was very thin, had fleas, scabs all over her body (probably from flea dermatitis) and had moderate tartar.  All these things were rectified and her scabs have all healed, her fur has grown back and she has put on a little weight from some good nutrition.  She's perfect again!

Miss Hap is a very quiet, unobtrusive, friendly and affectionate little girl.  She's a beautiful pewter grey lady who'd love to have a home where she can live indoors and not have to worry about food or parasites ever again.  She loves other cats, children and everyone else who loves her.

On October 25, 2017, Miss Hap was adopted by a family from Florenceville where she'll get all the love, attention and care that she deserves and desires.  Congratulations, Miss Hap!  Please write soon and send lots of photos!

"Oban" came to DunRoamin' on August 18, 2017 from the Perth area, along with his mom Brittany, her mom's friend Anwick and seven other kittens:   Thurso, Kintyre, Glasgow, Bethany, Bentley, Bartholomeow and Brinkley.  Both adults were thin and nursing kittens.  All eight kittens had fleas and were anaemic.  Sadly, little Thurso, Kintyre and Glasgow were not able to survive, despite immediate and intensive vet care.  The other five were placed under determined medical care.  Bethany was the only little girl from the litter. 

Oban is a very cute little orange tabby boy with white stockings on his hind legs and white socks on the front.  He also has white on his chest, mouth and belly.  He is VERY handsome!  He loves his siblings and prefers to sleep in a cat pile.  He was born about August 2, 2017.  He is very playful, very loving and very affectionate.  He and his siblings were very fortunate to be fostered by a kind young lady who fed, bathed and monitored them around the clock for several weeks, ensuring they became healthy, loving, confident little kittens - which they did!!

On October 25, 2017, Oban was adopted by a family in Maplehurst where he'll enjoy the company of another DunRoamin' cat, Gunnar (see below).  Gunnar loves everyone and will enjoy playing with Oban all day long!  Congratulations!

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

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

Thanks to outstanding vet care, Gunnar was soon perfectly healthy, happy and a very affectionate cat.  He loves to play and cuddle more than ANYTHING!   He is small in stature but huge in love! 

On October 25, 2017, Gunnar was adopted by a very nice lady from Maplehurst.  As an added joy, Oban (see above) was adopted as a little brother for him!  Congratulations, Gunnar!  Write soon!  We can't wait to hear about the next phase of your life!

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

Sheldon was initially scared but was relatively healthy with ear mites and minor tartar on his teeth.  He was soon neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites.  He became very friendly and relaxed once he was warm, safe and fed and hoped for a loving home where he could enjoy the company of servants all day long.  Sheldon was born about March 20, 2014 and is happy to have a warm home, cat and human friends and a chance at the life a loving cat deserves.  His best dream was always to be adopted to a home where his best friend, Bowie (see below) could go with him. They eat a diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food, are inseparable and love to run, play, cuddle, wrestle and hug each other!

On October 24, 2017, Sheldon's dream came true.  Not only does he have the best new home ever, his friend Bowie (see below) got to go with him!!  Best day EVER!!!  We're very happy for you and Bowie, Sheldon.  Please write often - we'll miss you both terribly!

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

Bowie was diagnosed with a condition which required him to eat Urinary S/O food only.  This is nothing serious at all - he just requires a special diet to ensure his ureter does not become blocked.  He also had an upper respiratory infection, but he's well over that.  Bowie was also diagnosed with a cataract in his right eye.  He was treated for that and he's just fine.  He also had an inflamed bladder wall, but had no bladder stones, which is a good thing.  He was treated with fluids, pain medication and antibiotics, as well as supplements to soothe his bladder and as long as he eats his prescription food, he's perfect!  He hopes to spend the rest of his life in a family being warm, safe and loved.  Who doesn't deserve that?? 

Bowie would love it if his best buddy, Sheldon (see below) could go to a home with him.  They run, wrestle, sleep, play and hug each other constantly - where one is, you'll find the other.  They would love to be brothers for life.  Bowie loves his exercise wheel and will spend as much time as possible on it!  He is a very unique and loving boy! 

On October 24, 2017, we were all ecstatic to learn that Bowie had been chosen to be the newest family member of a wonderful lady in Fredericton.  And, if that news isn't fantastic enough, his best friend Sheldon (see above) got to go with him!!  Yahoooo!  Congratulations!  Write soon and send lots of pictures, guys!!!

"Pastel" came to us on the morning of August 25, 2017 from the Bristol area where she was found all alone near the Shiktehawk trail.  She was just a baby and obviously needed help. 

Pastel was examined by her new vet and the following was learned:  her eyes were infected due to upper respiratory infection, she was underweight, she had ear mites and fleas, she was mildly dehydrated and she had thickened intestines due to parasites.  More significantly, she had a congenital condition known as radial agenesis which means that she has only one bone in each of her front legs - the radius bone is missing.  Her front legs are short and curved which may cause her to adopt a "kangaroo" stance - we saw her do this a couple of times on her first day with us, bearing her weight on her hind legs and lifting her front legs to her chest.  Had she not been rescued, there is little doubt she would not have survived very long.

Pastel was given medication to deal with her upper respiratory infection and to rid her of all parasites.  She was kept warm, given plenty of nutritious food and was quick to show her gratitude by curling up on her foster mother's chest and purring as they watched Killjoys together!  She was then fostered in Bath with a very loving foster mother, several other cats and a dog with whom she has become very comfortable - you might even say she loves him!

We're not yet sure exactly how this little special needs kitten will progress, but she'll have the best of care as she does!  Pastel would like to thank the kind gentleman who rescued her, made a generous donation toward her medical care and gave her the opportunity for a new life with lots of love included!   And she especially thanks her foster mother for giving her the love, care and confidence that she needed to continue her wonderful new life.

On October 24, 2017, Pastel left to go to her new home in Hartland.  She will have many friends there, including a young lady who is in love with her.  Congratulations, Pastel!  Please don't forget to send us photos and stories of the wonderful new experiences you're having with your new family!


Jessie

"Denver" came to us on August 9, 2017, from the Hartland area.  He was rescued by a lady who was unable to care for him as his left eye was badly infected and required medical attention.

Denver was born about June 21, 2017.  He was thin, had ear mites and, of course, his badly-infected eye.   This did not overly stress him, as he sat quietly while he received all this care, knowing that he finally had the assistance he needed.  Denver is cuddly, affectionate and loving.  It appeared that he had no vision in his left eye and  it required removal on September 20, 2017.  He handled the surgery like a pro and is perfectly fine! 

Denver received all required medical care and was fostered by a very generous vet tech to ensure he received the medical care and medication he required.  Thanks, Chloe!  Now that he's all healthy again, he looks forward to having a loving family.

On October 21, 2017, Denver received some wonderful news!  He will now be the newest member of a family from North View where he will join little Jessie (see below) who was adopted on October 12, 2017.  They will be best friends forever.  Congratulations to all!!

"Bullseye" came to us on August 13, 2017 from the Gordonsville area where he, his four brothers and one sister (Andy, Hamm, Buzz, Woody, and Jessie) were found all alone.  An adult female had been struck and killed on the road three days previously and we deduced that these little kittens were her family.

All kittens were tiny, dehydrated and hungry.  They were estimated to have been born about August 2, 2017, so would not have survived for many more hours without their mother.  They are fortunate to have made it this far!

All six were fostered by three vet techs who volunteered to take on their care which included feeding them by syringe every three hours to ensure they were hydrated and received the nutrition and care they required to grow strong and healthy.  We can't begin to express our gratitude to Riley, Eryn and Kate for their assistance for these little ones.  What would they do without you?!?  What would we?

Bullseye and his brother Hamm (see below) had never been separated and love each other dearly.  It was their dream to go to a home together!!

On October 21, 2017, that dream became a reality for both little boys!  They now live in Rosedale with a couple and their young son.  Congratulations!  Please write soon and send lots of photos!!

"Hamm" came to us on August 13, 2017 from the Gordonsville area where he, his four brothers and one sister (Andy, Bullseye, Buzz, Woody, and Jessie) were found all alone.  An adult female had been struck and killed on the road three days previously and we deduced that these little kittens were her family.

"Ecole" came to us on September 5, 2017, just a very young kitten.  He was so covered with fleas that crawled all over his body and into his eyes, nose and ears that he had to have numerous blood transfusions over two days as the fleas had devoured so much of his blood.  He required extensive and intensive veterinary care and we thank Dr Rennick at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic for his expertise and care.  We also thank Zero for yet another blood donation to save a little kitten.  Ecole was so named as he was fortunate to get help on the very first school day of 2017.

As of the evening of September 6, 2017, little Ecole was eating a bit of nutritious canned food on his own.  He was fostered by a very supportive vet tech where he received the best of everything while he healed and grew strong!   

On the morning of September 10, 2017, Ecole was feeling well enough to eat a tiny amount of dry kitten food on his own and play with his stuffed mouse which is bigger than he is!  He only weighed 417 grams, but slowly began putting on weight, thanks to the medical care he received from his foster mother.  He fits in the palm of a hand! 

On October 13, 2017, Ecole was adopted by a nice lady from Aroostook where he'll have the best life ever.  Congratulations, Ecole!  Please remind your new momma to send lots of photos - we'll miss you!

"Jessie" came to us on August 13, 2017 from the Gordonsville area where she and her five brothers (Andy, Bullseye, Buzz, Hamm and Woody) were found all alone.  An adult female had been struck and killed on the road three days previously and we deduced that these little kittens may have been her family.

On October 12, 2017, Jessie was elated to go to her new home where she will be spoiled every second of every day!  She now lives in North View and could not be happier!  Congratulations, Jessie!  Don't forget to write!

"Bartholomeow" came to DunRoamin' on August 18, 2017 from the Perth area, along with his mom Brittany, her mom's friend Anwick and seven other kittens:   Thurso, Kintyre, Glasgow, Bethany, Bentley, Brinkley and Oban.  Both adults were thin and nursing kittens.  All eight kittens had a large number of fleas and were therefore anaemic.  Sadly, little Thurso, Kintyre and Glasgow were not able to survive, despite immediate and intensive veterinary care.  Bethany was the only little girl from the litter. 

Bartholomeow is a very cute little black and white guy with a white chin, white on his toes and a white stripe down his belly.  He loves his siblings and prefers to sleep in a cat pile.  He was born about August 2, 2017.  He is a real sweetheart!

On October 11, 2017, Bartholomeow went to live with his new family in Woodstock.  Congratulations, little guy!  Please remind your new mom and dad to send us lots of photos - your foster mother will miss you and would love to see you grow up!!

"Bethany" came to DunRoamin' on August 18, 2017 from the Perth area, along with her mom Brittany, her mom's friend Anwick and seven other kittens:   Thurso, Kintyre, Glasgow, Bentley, Bartholomeow, Brinkley and Oban.  Both adults were thin and nursing kittens.  All eight kittens had fleas and were anaemic.  Sadly, little Thurso, Kintyre and Glasgow were not able to survive, despite immediate and intensive vet care.  The other five were immediately placed under determined medical care.

Bethany was the only little girl from the litter.  She is a beautiful little orange tabby who has a great attitude.  She is very playful and takes no guff from her brothers!  She loves to play, climb and cuddle!  She was born about August 2, 2017.

On October 7, 2017, Bethany was adopted by a couple from Nackawic where she will be a new friend for Crysis, another ex-DunRoamin' cat.  Congratulations!!


Crysis, Bethany's new friend!

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

Bridgeo was born about May 2, 2008.  He is extremely affectionate and loves to give head bonks!  Bridgeo has been diagnosed with diabetes but is very healthy.  He requires an injection twice daily (we hope it will be once daily very soon), but it is simply done and he has no problem at all with it!  He is currently eating a Diabetic diet. 

On September 30, 2017, Bridgeo was adopted by a young lady from Aroostook where he'll get the love and care that he deserves.  Don't forget to stay in touch, Bridgeo.  We'll all miss you very much!

"Lani" came to us on May 24, 2017 from Hartland where her owners were moving and unable to take her with them.  She was born about October 8, 2011, and is a beautiful little girl!  She has a great personality and loves people.  She especially loves kids.

Lani is fully vaccinated, spayed and tested for FIV and FeLV, as are all DunRoamin' cats.  She dreamed of a new home with someone to love her forever, and . . .

. . . on September 22, 2017, that dream came true.  Lani now lives in Woodstock with her new best friend where she'll be spoiled with love forever.  Congratulations, Lani.  Please remember to send lots of photos - we'll miss you!

 

"Cabella" came to us on September 2, 2017 when she was found in a driveway all alone.  She was obviously injured.  Cabella was examined and found to have a broken hind leg. 

Cabella's leg was placed in a splint and she was treated for the extremely large number of parasites.  On September 6, 2017, Cabella underwent surgery to amputate her leg as it was not repairable.  She recovered well with lots of love and care.  She hoped that she'd be lucky enough to move in with a family where she'd be loved and cared for so that she never has to experience an unfortunate situation like that again!

Thanks to Riley who made certain she got the nutrition and medical care she required while she healed, as well as the love and attention she desired and deserved.  And thanks also for finding her the perfect home . . .

On September 16, 2017, Cabella was adopted by a very nice young lady from Jacksonville where she'll be loved beyond her wildest dreams!  She will also have a canine friend, Dozer, so she's going to be living the life!  Congratulations, Cabella!  Send photos soon!!

"Mayda" came to us on July 8, 2017 from the Woodstock area.  She was part of a family of kittens and was much smaller than her siblings - she was not doing well.  As no other options were available, she was accepted by DunRoamin' to ensure she received the medical care she required.  She was so tiny she fit very well in the palm of a hand. 

Mayda was underweight, had feces on her back end and had dermatitis (red, swollen, sore patches) on her skin.  She also had a bruise on her belly - that must have hurt!

Mayda weighed only 180 grams.  As typical healthy kittens gain about 100 grams per week, her weight indicated that she was only about two weeks old, but she was definitely much older than that.  We are so grateful to her vet tech caregiver who took her home to provide medical care around the clock to ensure she had the best chance possible.  Thanks, Kate and Jeff!  She is SO fortunate to have you!!

Mayda is a very lucky little girl to have been brought for help and continued to thrive with the care she received.  She put on weight and soon became a happy, healthy, playful little fur ball.  She may grow to be a very small cat, but her personality more than makes up for anything lacking in size!  She is a very sweet and loving kitten!  She thanks her foster mother and father for helping her so much!     

On September 15, 2017, Mayda was adopted by a family in Nackawic who will give her the life of her dreams!  Don't forget to write, Mayda.  We'll all miss you, especially your foster mom and dad.  We hope to get lots of photos very soon!   

"Batman" came to us on July 22, 2017 from the Beechwood area where he was found on the side of the road all alone with no one to help him.  He was diagnosed with a broken right hind leg which was originally thought to be so badly damaged that it might have to be amputated, but thanks to the skill and experience of his vet, he was very soon just fine!  Batman is a very cute little guy with a loving heart and a huge voice - he "yells" at us if he wants something!!  He is ADORABLE!!

Batman dreamed of having a permanent home where he would be an indoor-only kitten so he would never have to experience the pain, fear and so many other terrible things that he had undergone so far in his short life. 

On September 2, 2017, his dream came true when a couple from Simonds came to take him home to become a permanent family member.  Congratulations, Batman!  Make sure you stay in touch - we'll miss you terribly!!

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

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

On August 26,2017, Ophelia was ecstatic to learn that she was going to have a permanent home with a young lady who would love her desperately forever!  Ophelia now lives in Fredericton where she is once again spoiled beyond her wildest dreams!  Congratulations, Ophelia!  Please don't forget to send photos and tell us all about your new life - we miss you!

** 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.

"Chickadee" came to DunRoamin' on July 19, 2017 from Lindsay where she was found all alone on the side of the road.  Her eyes were glued shut due to discharge from infection and she was not feeling well at all.  She just wanted to sleep.  We're not sure how long she had been there, but she was fortunate to be brought for medical assistance.  Thanks to her rescuers for picking her up off the road and also for leaving a generous donation to help with her care.

Chickadee received all required medical care and was soon doing very well.  She was fostered by a veterinary technician to ensure she had round-the-clock medical attention.  She is extremely cute and she even purrs, knowing that she's now warm, dry, safe, fed and getting the help she needs.   Her foster mother reports that she likes other cats and especially loves dogs!  She is cute, cuddly and affectionate.  Thanks, Chloe, for taking such good care of her!

On August 26, 2017, Chickadee was adopted by a very nice lady from Noonan, NB, where she'll be a new friend for their 10-year old dog and 10-month old cat.  Congratulations, Chickadee!  Your foster mother misses you, so please send lots of photos as you grow!!




Polar lounging in his new home!

"Polar" came to us on July 17, 2017 from Fielding where he had been found all alone on the side of the road.  He appeared to be injured and was very hungry.

Examination revealed that he had a fractured femoral bone in his right hind leg, as well as several abrasions on his tail and nose.  A portion of the end of his tail fell off due to his injury and another segment had to be surgically removed also.  He may have been struck by, or thrown from a vehicle - who knows?  We're happy he's safe with us now.

Polar was born about May 15, 2017.  He seemed to be familiar with people and greatly enjoyed his new digs where he had a soft warm bed and lots of food and attention.  He was cared for, neutered, vaccinated and soon ready for a permanent home.

On August 26, 2017, his dream became a reality.  Polar was adopted by a very nice lady from Rusagonis where he'll live with two dogs, two other cats and a pig!  Congratulations, Polar!  Don't forget to send lots of photos as you grow.  You will be missed by all your DunRoamin' friends!

"Derp" came to DunRoamin' on January 24, 2017 as a seizure by the NB SPCA, part of a large number of cats who were living together who needed some help.  Derp had a wound on his head, and extremely bad ear mites which had been so terrible that they had damaged both of his ear drums.  One ear drum was not salvageable but thanks to medical intervention, the other healed fine.  Derp had only one bone (as opposed to two, as all other cats do) in his right front leg.  Although his leg works fine, there is a possibility that his wrist or elbow joint could dislocate.  He also had one hip which was dysplastic (showed abnormal development) and both his kneecaps in his hind legs could possibly slip out of place.  He may require surgery to repair this condition, but he's shown no problem and we're sure he'll be fine.  Just ask Asher (check out our Adopted Cats page) who had the same problem, underwent surgery for it and is PERFECTLY fine!  He runs, plays and jumps with the best of them.  Maybe better!  Just ask him!!

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

On August 26, 2017, Derp was so excited to leave for his new home in New Maryland.  He had met a young couple earlier who fell in love with him and wanted to make sure their home was perfect for him before bringing him home, and today's the day that happened!  Congratulation, Derp!  Send lots of photos and stories about your new life in your new home!  We will miss you TERRIBLY!

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

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

On August 23, 2017, William was adopted by a young lady from Jacksonville where he'll be the newest addition to the family and cared for as he deserves!  Another family to spoil you, William!  Way to go!  Congratulations!  Don't forget to send photos - your foster family will miss you terribly!

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

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

On August 13, 2017, Tesla was introduced to a young lady who had read about her on our website and was eager to meet her.  She has one cat who was also timid when he first arrived at her home and is now doing fine and asking for a feline companion.  Tesla loves other cats and we're sure she'll fit in perfectly.  Thanks to her new family for giving her a home of her very own!  Please send lots of photos, Tesla.  We miss you!!

 

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

Tetris was fostered by a veterinary technician to ensure that he had the care he needed to become strong and healthy.  He's very lucky to have had this opportunity, and we're very grateful to his foster mom.  Tetris was soon eating wet food very well on his own, and loved to play non-stop, especially with his toys and his mom.  He was already litter box trained and was very adventurous.  When he finally tires out from playing, his favourite place to fall asleep is on your lap.  He's a real sweetheart!  He'd like to thank his foster mom for giving him such a great start and teaching him what love and compassion are all about.

On August 10, 2017, Tetris was very fortunate to be adopted by a family in Greenfield where he'll grow up with two young boys.  He will also have a canine brother and a feline brother, Dilbert (see below)!  Congratulations, Tetris!  Please send us lots of photos.  Your foster mom misses you and would love to see you as you grow up!

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

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

On August 11, 2017, Dilbert's wish came true.  He was adopted by a young family in Greenfield where he'll live happily ever after as a new friend for two young boys.  As an added bonus, Tetris (see above) was chosen to go along with him!  Congratulations, Dilbert!  Please send lots of photos and be sure to stay in touch.  We miss you already!!



"Cardi" came to us on July 19, 2017 from the Hartland area, barely alive.  A sibling had already passed away.  Cardi had an extreme number of fleas which had depleted him of blood to the point that he would not have survived much longer.   He was placed in an oxygen tent to help provide oxygen to his body, as his blood was not able to distribute enough to keep him alive and healthy, but even that was not enough.  Thanks to the skill and knowledge of his vets at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic, he underwent a series of five blood transfusions which were successful in saving his life.  Thanks to Zero for donating blood to help this little boy, and to his vet who initiated this unique treatment for him.  Cardi was born about May 29, 2017 so was barely even seven weeks old. 

Cardi underwent intensive veterinary care and thanks to the blood transfusions, medical care, and lots of love, is now healthy, happy and . . .

. . . ADOPTED!  As of July 28, 2017, Cardi is in his new home with his blood donor, Zero, with whom he has become best friends.  He'd like to thank everyone who played a part in saving his life and giving him the opportunity to be part of a family.  He especially thanks those kind and generous people who donated to ensure he'd have the care he required to make it!  Congratulations, Cardi!

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

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

ChitChat is a very nice boy who is grateful to be pain-free, warm and have food in his belly.  He was quickly eating up a storm, grateful to have the quills removed from his mouth.  How painful that must have been!  No wonder he was so skinny - he didn't even weigh five pounds!  He is very loving and very grateful for the help.  He just wishes he had a home and/or another cat for company!!

On July 23, 2017, ChitChat was made the happiest little boy EVER when a young couple from Fredericton met him and decided that he'd be the perfect friend for their FeLV+ cat, Kuro.  They can live happily together and be best friends!  Thanks to Neil and Danielle - you're awesome!  Congratulations to all!  Please send family photos very soon!!

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

Please read about FeLV here.

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

Oasis was cared for by two very attentive veterinary technicians who gave her their all, as they always do.  She received a bath, food, warmth and lots of loving.  She was started on antibiotics and pain medications which helped immensely.  She was fostered by another veterinary technician who ensured that she received round-the-clock care so that any medical requirements were immediately addressed.  Her foster mom reported that she is sassy at times (imagine!!) and snuggly at other times.  She is a very fortunate little girl, as are all those DunRoamin'.

On July 19, 2017, Oasis met a young couple from Woodstock.  They immediately fell in love and the rest, as they say, is history.  We look forward to seeing photos and hearing stories as you grow and interact with your new sister.  Congratulations to all!

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

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

Shortly after Christmas 2016, Kendrick was diagnosed with an abscessed kidney which resulted in it growing to three times it's normal size.  He was treated with a three-month course of antibiotics and he's now fine.  He is very loving, very playful (he loves people and other cats with a passion!) and very affectionate!  He has a very unique, inquisitive, interactive personality that makes everyone he meets fall in love with him.

As a result, as of July 18, 2017, he is the newest member of the family of a very nice lady from Woodstock.  He has a new cat and dog sibling and we're sure they'll get along just great.  Kendrick will require ongoing routine checkups to ensure his kidney is still doing well, but that's not a problem at all!  Congratulations, Kendrick!  Be a good boy!  Write soon!  We miss you - a lot!!

"Quiz" and "Cobble" came to us from Gordonsville on July 4, 2017.  They were kittens who were being fed but had no medical care available.  Quiz's left eye was beyond repair and had to be removed.  Cobble's eyes were well on the way to the same destination.  Despite medical intervention, she lost her right eye due to untreated upper respiratory infection also.  Quiz is short-haired and Cobble will have medium or long hair.

Both Quiz and Cobble had many fleas and ear mites.  They were thoroughly examined and prescribed all required medication to ease their discomfort and heal their infections. 

Quiz and Cobble were born about May 4, 2017.  They were both happy to receive the medical care and affection they required.  Both were anxious to go to a loving home where they'll be safe and cared for for the rest of their lives and their ultimate dream was that they could stay together as a family.

On July 16, 2017, their dream came true.  Quiz and Cobble were adopted by a very nice young couple from New Maryland, and their friend Quenton (see below) was also invited to join them!  Congratulations to all!  Thanks to their new family - you're greatly appreciated!!

"Quenton" came to us on July 10, 2017 from Gordonsville where she had been battling upper respiratory infection.  She was not well at all.  She had severe conjunctivitis and a green discharge from her eyes.  Her right cornea was opaque, she was very thin and had ear mites and fleas.  Quenton was born about March 1, 2017.

Quenton had not had a good start.  She was treated for all her afflictions and it was necessary to remove her right eye.  We hope her left eye will be saved by medical care.  Upper respiratory is contagious (similar to our common cold) but is easily treated if caught early.  Quenton is doing very well and feels so much better that she purrs constantly!

On July 16, 2017, Quenton was chosen by a very nice couple from New Maryland to be a new friend for their two cats.  And as an added bonus, her friends Quiz and Cobble  (see above) were also invited!  Congratulations!  Thanks so much to your new family for giving you such a great home!  You've got it made!!

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

He was examined and found to have open wounds on all legs - he must have been through something terrible!  Zedd was initially terrified, but slowly settled in.  His wounds have been cleaned, he was put on medication, neutered, vaccinated, and tested for FIV and FeLV. 

On July 9, 2017, Zedd went to live with a nice gentleman in Arthurette where he'll be well cared for.  He will never have to experience injury again and will have the life he's always wanted - love, care, attention, food, water, shelter - what's not to love!?!?  Way to go, Zedd.  Best wishes to you!!

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

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

On July 6, 2017, Lochlyn was adopted by a gentleman in Florenceville-Bristol, where she'll be loved beyond description by him and his grandchildren!  Congratulations, Lochlyn!  Send us lots of photos of you and your new family!

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

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

On July 5, 2017, Amorah was adopted by a young lady from Hartland.  We hope to see you often and will be waiting for each and every new photo and update.  Congratulations, Amorah!

"Dutch" and her three babies, Drift, Axis and Spinner, came to us on August 29, 2016 from Gordonsville where they had come to a home as strays.  The people in the home were unable to keep them.  Dutch was born about August 29, 2013.  Her babies were born about June 6, 2016.

Dutch was thin but healthy enough to feed her babies.  She had an old injury on her ear and her kittens all had ulcers on the roofs of their mouths, but they quickly got much better each day with medical intervention and care.  All of Dutch's kittens found homes but she is still waiting for her chance at love.  She is grateful to have friends, but she dreams of family. 

On June 21, 2017, Dutch, now known as Hermione, got her wish and her dream when she was chosen by a wonderful family in Woodstock where she'll be the new sibling of two young children, three DunRoamin' cats and a DunRoamin' dog.  Congratulations, Dutch, you got it made!  Write soon!!!

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

Rex was a little scared and hissed when first approached, but allowed himself to be patted.  He was soon fine once he realized he was no longer in any form of danger and that he was with friends.  He lived with Peace and Derp until . . .

. . . June 20, 2017, when he was adopted by a very nice lady and her young daughter.  They all fell immediately in love with each other, and Rex now resides in Upper Brighton.  We can't wait to see lots of photos and hear all about your new life!  Congratulations, Rex!

"Palmer" came back to DunRoamin' on May 2, 2017.  He originally came to DunRoamin' on September 21, 2012 from the Hartland area where he was trying to survive at a dumpster.  He had no one to help him.  He was skinny, had fleas, was dehydrated, had an extremely bad case of upper respiratory infection and tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV+).  Please click on the link below to learn more about FIV.

Palmer is extremely affectionate and is known as a "Gentle Giant."  He loves to be brushed, enjoys all the attention he can glean and loves to cuddle.  Palmer was born about March, 2010.

On June 19, 2017, Palmer met a young couple who thought he is the most handsome and affectionate cat they have met.  They all fell in love and now Palmer lives with them in Centreville.  Congratulations, Big Guy!  Send lots of photos!!  We'll all miss you!

* 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.

"Granite" came to DunRoamin' on April 29, 2017 from the Hartland area.  He had fleas and had been experiencing diarrhea for several days and appeared to be in renal failure.  It was discovered that he had ingested a foreign body which caused an obstruction in his bowel, but now that it has been removed, he's going to be fine.  Granite was born about November 1, 2015.

Granite is a sweet, loving, playful and affectionate little boy. He loves people and is anxious for a home and family of his own.

On  June 11, 2017, he got his wish.  Granite was adopted by a young couple from Woodstock where he'll be the most spoiled cat ever!  He loves it!  Congratulations, Granite!  Write soon!

"Haven" came to us from Juniper on February 3, 2017, another stray whom no one could take in.  He was named Haven because he really needed one.  He had various cuts and scratches around his ears and was not a happy camper.  He needed help and friends, both of which he received.  He was born about June 3, 2013.

Haven was immediately neutered and vaccinated.   As he was upset and scared about all his new circumstances, he received a nice set of blue Soft Paws so his nails could not do any damage.  Although he still had a way to go, by the evening he was already much more calm and relaxed because he realized that he was safe, fed, had shelter and had nothing to fear. 

Haven has blue eyes, which means he could potentially have a hearing problem, but we have confirmed that he hears just fine.  He's a very nice boy who settled in well.  He is handsome, intelligent and loving, and he's just waiting for the perfect family who will appreciate those traits.  During the first week of March, 2017, he displayed a bit of upper respiratory infection, but he quickly overcame it.   He has the most mesmerizing eyes - that beautiful blue will capture your heart!!

On June 12, 2017, Haven got the dream he'd been wishing for.  He was adopted by a young couple from Florenceville where he'll have a feline brother, Cheech, and will rule his humans' house!  Congratulations, Haven.  Send photos very soon!


Shoobie


Newbie

"Shoobie" and "Newbie" came to us on May 2, 2017 from the Plaster Rock area, brothers who were about one and a half years old.   They had never been separated and were very much attached to each other.  They are known as "little clowns," as they are very entertaining.  Both are very loving and affectionate and like to give kisses on your chin.  They love to play and Shoobie loves to knead on you to show his contentment.  They were born about April 22, 2015.

These little boys are almost indistinguishable, although Shoobie has a tiny bit more white on his tail and is the more affectionate of the two.  Newbie decided he LOVES our cat wheel and goes for frequent walks and runs on it!  They are very special little boys.

On June 11, 2017, both Shoobie and Newbie were adopted to a home in Hartland where they'll have an 11-year-old boy as their new best friend.  They are very grateful to be able to stay together.  We'll await lots of photos, guys!  Have a great time!!  Stay in touch!!
