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

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

On January 20, 2018, Hotchner finally got to meet a young lady who had fallen in love with him from afar.  They hit it right off, and Hotch now lives in Moncton!  Congratulations, Hotch!  Make sure you send us photos really soon!

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

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

On January 20, 2018, Marvel met a lady from Rusagonis, NB, who fell completely head over heals for her.  She is grateful to have a new family and will show her gratitude daily - just watch her!!  Congratulations to you and your new family, Marvel!  Send photos!!

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

Snowdon is black with four white paws and a white mustache.  She is extremely cute.  All her siblings have been adopted and she's still waiting for her turn.  Please come meet her - she's lonely for a family!

On January 19, 2018, Snowdon met a nice lady from Fredericton and they hit it off royally!  Snowdon is now her newest family member! 

"York" came to DunRoamin' on November 19, 2017 from the Hartland area where she had been found under a deck.  She was not in good shape.  The gentleman who found her had to remove part of his deck to extricate her as she was not ambulatory.  It is suspected that she was the victim of an animal attack at least several days previous.  She was very fortunate to be found and brought for help. York was born about November 19, 2015.

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

As of January 12, 2018, York was doing very well.  She loves attention and affection and will readily return both.  She easily moves herself where she wants to go by walking on her front legs and pulling herself along.  She is very happy, healthy and pain-free.  Next step:  HOME and FAMILY!!

On January 18, 2018, York  took her next step when her family arrived to take her home.  This family includes three cats, one of whom is DunRoamin', and a young boy and girl who are very excited to have her.  Congratulations, York.  You are a very fortunate girl to have been found and taken in by such a great family.  Send us lots of photos!


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

Vu's foster mother had to monitor her health, temperature, food intake, etc, and feed and stimulate her to pee and poop every two hours around the clock for the first several weeks, since Vu's mother had displayed a lack of interest in caring for her.  That's a very intense, dedicated and compassionate undertaking for Vu's foster mom and Vu is very grateful for the love and care, as are we.  She initially weighed in at only 99 grams, but after a week weighed 140 grams.  Thanks to her foster parents, we knew that she certainly had the best chance possible.  Thanks, Kate and Jeff.  You are Vu's heroes (and ours, too).

On January 15, 2018, at twelve weeks of age, Vu was officially adopted by her foster parents where she'll be a permanent sibling of several pets, including some ex-DunRoamin' ones.  We are all grateful for the life that Vu now happily experiences.  We can't begin to thank everyone who had a hand in her new life, but most especially we thank her family for the wonders she'll now know - what a precious gift.

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

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

As you can see, Nascat is very handsome.  One of his favourite napping spots was in our mail tray!  He is happy, healthy, playful and loving and he loves to interact with his humans and feline friends as well.  He will give his complete love and devotion to anyone who is willing to give him a home.  He is a very sweet little boy who is grateful to have his health back and to have someone to love.  His very favourite thing to do is go for a run on his exercise wheel, although sometimes he just likes to take a break there!

On January 15, 2018, a lady and her young daughter attended DunRoamin' to see if anyone might like to join their family.  Nascat was right there to say, "Yes, please, MEEEEEE!!"  He immediately fell in love with the daughter and ingratiated himself completely to the entire family!  Now renamed Chip, for his love of stealing munchies, Nascat lives in Smithfield where he'll be the new best friend of two young girls.  Congratulations to all!  Send photos, Nascat!  We'll miss you very much!!

"Brenna" came to us on November 22, 2017 from Beechwood, NB along with her six kittens.  She had originally come to Beechwood with two kittens from a previous litter, but she was not spayed and soon had another litter of six for whom no one could care.  She was born about November 22, 2016.

Her kittens were born about October 31, 2017 and we've named them Coraline, Keera, Tarot, Kellas, Noir and Coal.  All were healthy.  They just needed a safe place to be and they definitely needed to be spayed and neutered to ensure they didn't contribute to the cycle of an ever-increasing number of unwanted and/or uncared-for cats, as had been Brenna's fate. 

We'd like to thank the young lady who fostered Brenna and her family of babies - we are grateful for the love and care they have learned! 

Brenna is a beautiful pewter gray and she is slightly cross-eyed.  She is gorgeous and has a wonderful, loving personality.  She is fully vaccinated and spayed and eager to go to a loving home.

On January 14, 2018, that's exactly what happened.  A very nice couple from New Bandon, NB, drove all the way to meet her.  She quieted immediately and settled comfortably into each of their arms in turn and we all knew this is exactly where she wants to be for the rest of her life.  She will have one other cat friend and the best family ever.  Congratulations, Brenna!

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

Upon examination by her new vet at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic, Vimy was found to be thin, weighing only 1.5 pounds, was mildly dehydrated, had ear mites, infection in both ears, an infection in her left eye and a polyp in her right ear with the possibility of another in her left ear.  She was very fortunate to have been brought for help.  She was treated for all her problems and her ears were monitored and medicated by her vet tech foster mother and as of January, 2018, her polyps are gone!  Vimy is vocal and loving, obviously grateful for the care and concern heaped abundantly upon her!  She lived with her foster mother, father and canine and feline foster brothers and sisters for almost two months and she thanks her foster family for their generosity, compassion and love.  Vimy is honoured to have been named by her foster father in honour of the veterans who have served Canada.  

On January 12, 2018, Vimy met a young lady from Burton who cried with joy when she realized that her dad had surprised her with this beautiful little girl as an early birthday present.  Her name is very appropriate, as she now lives in a military family who has recently visited Vimy Ridge in France and are honoured to keep her name.  Congratulations, everyone.  Write soon and send lots of photos, Vimy!

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

Seth had upper respiratory infection, sinusitis, he had many parasites, his eyes were red and his mouth was even redder.  His teeth were in terrible condition which must have caused him much pain.  Seth was placed on antibiotics and parasite medication to help with his problems.  He was neutered when healthy enough and all but four canine teeth were extracted, but he's still able to eat very well and he does love his food!  He is quickly becoming healthy with all the love and care extended to him.  He was born about November 10, 2015.

Seth thanks his rescuer for her help in getting him medical care, her generous donation to help pay for this care and her concern for all cats in the area, many of whom she has spayed and neutered of her own volition and at her own expense.  He and his friends are truly grateful.  Seth is extremely affectionate, loving and grateful.  He can be a bit of a pain with some other cats, but in general he gets along.

On January 12, 2018, Seth met a gentleman from Florenceville.  This gentleman was originally interested in another, but Seth made sure he had no choice:  he was going home with this man and that's all there was to it!  The carrier was placed on the floor, his new father told him, "Pile in!" and he got right down from his bed, walked into the carrier and laid down as if to say, "What's taking so long??  Let's go!!"  His new name is Ozzy, and the rest is history!  Congratulations, Ozzy!  Write soon and send lots of photos! 

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

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

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

On January 11, 2018, Nina was chosen by a lady in Bath (or rather, Nina chose her!) to be her newest family member.  She will have lots of kids to play with and she'll be lavished with affection daily.  She'll also get to cuddle and be carried around on shoulders - one of her favourite things.  Send lots of photos, Nina.  We'll miss you!  Congratulations on your new family!

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

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

Liam is a perfect little boy.  His sugar levels have settled and he's very comfortable with his meds - he has no problem taking his insulin at all!  He is quiet, loving and affectionate and he "chirps" when you talk to him - he loves to answer back!  His favourite place is on a human's lap or on his toasty warm window ledge.  He was very anxious to have a permanent home, but we have to warn any potential adopter - he's a real cuddler!

On January 10, 2018, Liam met a couple from Saint John who immediately fell in love with him, and vice versa.  They have had diabetic cats for the past six years and are very familiar with their requirements and are so happy to have him join their family.  It was meant to be, Liam.  The wait was well worth it.  Congratulations!  To make this event even more special, Liam's new friend, Slater (see below) got to join this wonderful family also!  Don't forget to write often -  we'll miss you, and so will the vet techs!  We'd all like to thank them for caring for and loving you so much over the past six months!  Stay in touch!! You're a very lucky boy!  This was meant to be!

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

Slater was originally timid and very standoffish, but he quickly became comfortable enough to meet us at his kennel door.  He can head butt and purr with the best of them, now that he's feeling so much better.  He was born about March 1, 2014 and was quickly displaying his ability to be a fine and loving young tomcat.  He was fostered with friends in Grand Falls where he was very grateful for the love, attention and companionship displayed to him by his human and feline foster family members.  He'd like to thank them profusely for all their love and assistance.

His foster parents have so very generously donated Slater's adoption fee - thank you!  He is so very handsome with his pewter gray fur!  He had his cauliflower ear removed in November, 2017 and sometimes requires ear drops, but he's very healthy and loving.  He was just waiting for that special person to come into his life . . .

. . . and on January 10, 2018, that's what happened.  We'd like to thank Slater's new family in Saint John for giving him such a wonderful and loving home.  We know he'll be the perfect companion for Sam and Kate, and to make this even more special, if at all possible, Slater's new friend Liam (see above) got to go along, too!  Thank you so much for giving these two special boys a family!  We'll be looking forward to hearing from all of you!

"Dizzy" came back to us on December 13, 2017 from the Holmesville area.  She had been adopted approximately eleven months earlier but had started defecating outside the litter box.  She was immediately examined by her new vet and was placed back on her special diet.  She must eat Royal Canin Urinary S/O which solved the problem in no time at all. 

Dizzy is a beautiful little girl who was born about May 25, 2011.  She and 15 friends had originally been rescued from a shed near Hartland in 2011 where they were closed in with no food or water.  She is very friendly and affectionate.  Dizzy is 100% healthy and happy, now that she's back on her diet.  If she eats this food only, she'll always be healthy!

On January 9, 2018, Dizzy was introduced to a very nice lady from Woodstock who was looking for a friend for her cat, another ex-DunRoamin' stray.  We are very grateful to have Dizzy join your household.  Thank you so much for allowing our strays to be part of your family, and thank you for your ongoing and generous support!

"Hazard" came to DunRoamin' on November 14, 2017 from Glassville.  He and several siblings had been found in a box on a porch and he was not in good shape.  He had a bad upper respiratory infection, discharge from his eyes and nose, fleas and a fractured femur.  Hazard was born about August 10, 2017, so was just a baby.  It must have been terrible for him . . . but of course, he's happy to be warm, pain-free, fed, safe and loved now that he's here.

Hazard's injury was unique.  His knee had been broken and the lower bone had attached itself to the top bone and healed there, resulting in one bone sticking out which made his right hind leg shorter than the others.  He underwent medical care and three weeks of cage rest before being re-x-rayed which revealed that his leg is doing just fine!  No surgery for him!  We'll always monitor him for pain or limping in the future to be on the safe side, as will his adopter, but he's just GREAT! 

In the meantime, Hazard waited patiently for a home and family.  He's a really sweet little boy and whatever he needs, he'll get!  He's full of energy and he's full of love!  And cuteness!  And playfulness, and goodness, and affection, and . . .

. . . on January 8, 2018, he got his best wish when a young lady from Perth-Andover asked him to join her family.  Congratulations, Hazard!  Have a wonderful life!  Don't forget to send us lots of pictures of you and your new family!

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

Blanc is completely white and she has long hair.  She is gorgeous and we think she's going to have more personality than all her siblings, if this photo tells a true story!  She and her siblings couldn't wait to join families, and . . .

. . . on January 6, 2018, Blanc went to live with her new family in Harvey which includes other pets.  We are looking forward to photos to see how absolutely gorgeous you and your siblings will become!  Congratulations, Blanc!!

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

As of November 13, 2017, McCrae was looking a little better and was eating a bit on his own.  He still had a ways to go, but with the love and care he got, it was much easier than he thought!   He's got everything he needs:  good food, good medical care and good friends. 

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

On January 6, 2018, McCrae finally made the trek to his new home in Waasis where he joins a family with two young girls who love him already!  We'll be looking forward to photos, McCrae.  Be a good boy - we'll miss you!!

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

Somme was born about September 28, 2017.  She and her brother Dunkirk and sisters, Ypres and Caen were fostered by a very kind and generous supporter whom we thank profusely.  They soon began eating on their own and with love and care, flourished and became healthy.  Somme appeared to be the most outgoing of her siblings - she would sit and stare at her foster mother until she patted her!  She is more independent than her siblings and wants cuddles when she wants them.  She makes a very cute trilling noise as she runs and plays!

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

On January 6, 2018, Somme was elated to go to her new home in Fredericton where she'll have the perfect home and family.  Please send lots of photos, Somme!  Have a wonderful life!

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

Frostine is mostly white, but she has four little swatches of grey fur on the top of her head.  She is SOOOO cute!  She and her siblings could hardly wait to be ready to go to homes in the new year. 

On January 6, 2018, Frostine was elated to finally be ready to go to her new home in Fredericton.  Her adopted family is SO excited to have her, and she'll join a family that already has feline members.  Congratulations, Frostine!  Send pictures soon!

"Bowie" came back to DunRoamin' on December 22, 2017 from the Fredericton area where he had been adopted two months previously.  He had been doing very well, but had eventually started to become a bit too aggressive with the small dog who lived there.  Bowie was born about July 29, 2015.

Bowie was originally diagnosed with a condition which requires him to eat Urinary S/O food only.  This is nothing serious at all - he just requires a certain diet to ensure his ureter does not become blocked and he loves his S/O food.  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??  

On January 3, 2018, Bowie got exactly what he deserves!  A young lady whom he had met previously returned to confirm that she wanted him to live with her forever!  And as an added bonus, Waffles will join Bowie in a couple of weeks!  Both cats eat Urinary S/O food and are extremely happy to have a loving family.  They will live in Moncton.  Congratulations!!

"Deja" came to us on October 23, 2017 from Rosedale where the NB SPCA picked her up after she had been abandoned by her family to fend for herself.  She is a beautiful, friendly little girl who had a mild external ear infection, gingivitis and moderate stomatitis, all of which were soon rectified with steroids and antibiotics and she's now 100% healthy.   She was born about October 23, 2015.

Deja was also pregnant and her three beautiful baby kittens arrived on October 24, 2017.  Sadly, daughters Valla and Regan survived only a few minutes.  You can read about them on our Pet Memorials page.  Her third kitten, Vu, was fortunate to have the medical care of a very dedicated veterinary technician and thrived as a result.

Deja lived with a dozen other cats and got along well with them all.  Her dream was that one day she would have a loving home with lots of family and lots of attention.

On January 2, 2018, Deja's dream came true when she met a family from Florenceville.  She loved the young people who were so anxious to have a cat to join their Havenese dog who missed having a cat in their home.  Deja is now ecstatic to know that she'll have a family to love forever!  Congratulations, Deja!  Happy New Year!!
