Sponsor A Kitty
 

The sponsor a kitty program was created to help those kitties in our care who may have a medical condition such as diabetes, feline leukemia, allergies, heart issues, kidney issues or feline immune-deficiency virus (to name a few) or who may require ongoing medication or prescription food while they await their forever home. Under our care, no animal is ever euthanized due to lack of space, treatable illness, physical defect, age, behavioural or socialization issues. Of course, all this takes money.

For only $25 a month (less than a dollar a day) your sponsorship will support your sponsored cat's dietary and medical needs. Your name will be placed in a position of honour in our Reception Area under the photo of your sponsored cat thanking you for your support. Your name will also appear on our Sponsor a Kitty page of our website at www.dunroaminstrayandrescue.com, as well as our Facebook and Instagram page. Please indicate which kitty you would like to sponsor.

Payments may be made through Canada Helps (www.canadahelps.org), e-transfers or post-dated cheques which may be mailed or dropped off at DunRoamin' Stray and Rescue, 55 Allison Road, Riverbank, Carleton County, NB E7L 4J1. Please make sure you provide your complete mailing address for income tax purposes as well as your e-mail address and telephone number. Please contact us at (506) 328-3380 for information on how to send your donation by e-transfer.

On behalf of all our sponsored kitties we'd like to thank everyone who supports our strays. It is only through your kindness and generosity that we are able to help these special kitties. Sincerely - "Thank you."

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

Strauss has become a very affectionate and trusting little girl.  As of January 21, 2015, she is fostered with a family in Bristol.  It is most probably a very unique experience for her!  She must eat a diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food to ensure that she does not develop crystals in her urine which can cause her much harm.  Under her current care and in her wonderful foster home, she's perfectly healthy and happy and is grateful for her new life.

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food for life (Royal Canin Urinary S/O)

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

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

Abel is currently in a foster home where he will be loved, cuddled and doted upon until he is chosen for a permanent home - he can't wait!  He was born about April 1, 2012.

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food for life (Royal Canin Urinary S/O)

"Trez" returned to us on December 27, 2019.  He originally came to us on July 13, 2018 from Riverbank, NB where he had been abandoned in a kennel outside the door of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  He had very long nails, ear mites, was not neutered and was terrified.  All these problems were addressed and he quickly became a cuddle cat once he realized he was safe and among friends. 

Trez was adopted on December 15, 2018 to a home in Hartland, but it was reported that he was not happy in that home, so he returned to us.  He developed a bit of an upper respiratory infection (cold) which was treated.  He has recently experienced some diarrhea and is working on getting it all under control.  He hopes for a chance at another home very soon.  He is friendly, loving and affectionate.  Please come meet him.

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food, vaccines, ongoing medications

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

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

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

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

On May 31, 2019, we learned that Frazzle is improving nicely and is comfortable, happy, purring and content with her huge staff of human servants who wait on her hand and foot, day and night and she will be treated like a queen while under the medical care of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  Her food must be put through a blender and she is fed through a tube until she is able to eat on her own.  Soon!

She (and we) would like to thank the Florencevile Veterinary Clinic for their kind and hard work to ensure this little one has a chance at the life she deserves.  She is feeling so much better and shows her gratitude to her vet tech foster mom daily.

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food, medication, vaccines when healthy enough, FIV/FeLV tests

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

Hatfield was a bit timid, but he's learning that he's safe and sound and that he has many servants who will ensure he has everything he'll need! He just needs a little more time to come around, and he's doing very well. He has some itchiness on his legs and belly which require medication but he is doing very well.

REQUIREMENTS:  medication, vaccines, food and love!

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

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

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

Harold was born about March 13, 2015. He was very much underweight, had marked stomatitis (infected teeth) which meant he needed all his teeth removed, and had hair loss on his back end. His ears show some "character" as well. This little boy needed help. He was already neutered upon arrival and he has tested negative for both FIV and FeLV. He is currently daily medication to help control diarrhea.

Harold very quickly has made himself a favourite. He is affectionate, loving and will turn himself inside out for a cuddle - he's very grateful to be warm, safe, have good and frequent food and have loving caregivers. He's healthy again and he'd love to be an indoor cat so he can live safely and have his own family to love. As you can see by his face, he LOVES chin rubs - he's missed out on so many, but that changes today!!

Harold has undergone dental surgery and will receive full vaccines, lots of nutritious food and parasite control.   He is very choosy about what he eats and is not gaining weight as he should, but his caregivers are on that!  We hope he'll be fine soon.

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food, medication, vaccinations, parasite control

"Spartacus" came to us from the Plaster Rock area on May 2, 2017.  He is a beautiful little boy - a true gentleman.  He loves to be petted and particularly loves his ears, cheeks and chin scratched.  He is not so much a "pickin' up cat," but he is very affectionate and likes to spend time with humans.  Spartacus was born about August 2, 2014.

Spartacus tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), but he is a very healthy, happy, affectionate boy.  FIV cats can live long and happy lives, especially if they are monitored closely for such things as upper respiratory infection (colds) or dental disease.  Please read about FIV below and consider taking one of these beautiful cats home - they're perfect!  Spartacus is currently in the home of a senior citizen as part of our Cats For Seniors program.

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

Fivel was accepted by DunRoamin' and underwent care at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where he received the medical care he needed. On August 6, 2019, he underwent surgery to remove several tiny stones stuck in his urethra. This surgery, which included a perineal urethrostomy, allowed the stones to be removed/passed and he's doing so much better now. He takes a daily stool softening medication to help prevent constipation. Fivel is fortunate to be in a foster home and is grateful for all the assistance he has received from such caring people.

REQUIREMENTS:  Prescription Royal Canin Urinary S/O and stool softening medication food for life

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

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

REQUIREMENTS:  Food, vaccines

"Rocky" came to us on November 10, 2020 from Holmesville where he had been trying to survive on his own.  He tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) - please read about it here.  He is a nice boy who loves to have his ears scratched, although when he's had enough he'll let you know by whacking you with his paw - he's in charge, you know!  He is currently fostered with his friend Gilmore.

Rocky has come into his own very quickly.  He is friendly, affectionate and loves to have lots of pets and scratches.  If he tires of attention, he'll let us know with a quick swat, but then is back very quickly for more loving!  He is quite the boy!  He is happy to be in a foster home where he can have the run of the house, but he is looking for a home of his very own.

FIV+ cats may live long and happy lives and may interact with other cats as long as they do not fight, and he's a lover, not a fighter!  Please come meet this gorgeous tuxedo cat!  He is SO hoping for a home where he can sleep on a bed, watch TV and help his person type on a computer!  He loves to hang out with people!

REQUIREMENTS:   a home with lots of love and understanding, and a friend, he hopes!

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

Astrayea is doing well with her hyperthyroidism medication and has since started taking medication to help relieve constipation. She is currently fostered with a wonderful family who dotes on her! She is a beautiful little girl who is very quiet, loving and affectionate.

Please spay and neuter your pets!

REQUIREMENTS:  Medication to control her hyperthyroidism, food, vaccines and lots of attention!  She is a real sweetheart!

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

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

REQUIREMENTS:  insulin for life, as well as diabetic food.  She currently eats Fancy Feast which is her basic requirement, and she doesn't at all mind her very small dosage of insulin twice daily.

"Gilmore" came to DunRoamin' on June 2, 2021, from Gregg Settlement where he was peeing inappropriately in the home. Gilmore was assessed by his vet at Florenceville Veterinary Clinic and found to have cystitis for which he was treated. He no longer has any medical issues, but he must eat a diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food for the rest of his life to ensure that he does not become blocked or have any other urinary issues.

Gilmore is a sweet little boy. He loves to have his ears scratched and loves attention. He is the first to greet people and loves everyone! He likes his S/O diet and he is doing great! He hopes for a home in the very near future with a family who will love and appreciate him - he is a very nice boy. He is currently in a foster home with Rocky where he enjoys being spoiled!

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food (Royal Canin Urinary S/O) for life so that he does not develop crystals again and block.

"Dazzler" returned to DunRoamin' on November 18, 2021.  She had been originally come from the Hartland area where she and several siblings had been found locked in a shed during hot summer days.  She had been adopted on April 16, 2013 but had been returned as she was stressed with the noise and activity of young children.  On December 4, 2014, she was adopted by a couple from Stickney, but they eventually gave her up for reasons unknown.  Dazzler was born about May 25, 2011 and has beautiful blue eyes.  She is completely white with a small grey patch on her head.  She is gorgeous!!

Dazzler requires a bit of dental work to remove three teeth, but is otherwise fine.  She is a very sweet little girl who deserves only the best of care.  She is quiet and affectionate and hopes for the home she deserves very soon.  Her dream is to be able to spend the rest of her life on someone's lap!

"Kuffner" returned to DunRoamin' on November 1, 2021.  He had originally come to DunRoamin' on February 12, 2021 from Woodstock where he had been found injured with no one to help him.  He had an eye injury which was soon treated by his new friends at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.

Kuffner is a big boy, weighing about 12 pounds.  However, his size in weight does not display the huge amount of love and compassion he has, because in his new home he was bullied by an older, infirm female cat.  While he refused to fight back, he was also stressed by her, so he returned to DunRoamin' to find a place in a less intimidating environment.  He is a sweetheart who loves to play.  Kuffner is not allowed to have injections of any kind, including vaccines, as he has a strong negative reaction at injection sites.

"Josie" came to DunRoamin' on June 21, 2022 from the Victoria County area where she had been diagnosed with diabetes. Unfortunately, no one was available to provide her care, so she came to DunRoamin' to live with our two diabetic cats who eat Diabetic food and require insulin injections twice daily. Josie was born about June 17, 2012.

Josie is a beautiful little girl who is slowly settling in with Furgie and Gaia. Thanks to the care and interest provided by her vet friend at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic, Josie does not require insulin injections - just diabetic food for the time being. Perhaps some day, she won't even need that!

Josie is doing well and is hoping for a permanent home very soon - she deserves it!

Beau

"Beau" came to DunRoamin' on June 19, 2022 from the Somerville, NB area where he had been hanging around for a few seasons, but no one could take him in. Recently he had been observed to have what appeared to be injuries on his face.

Beau was accepted by DunRoamin' and immediately examined by his new vet friend who observed an infected injury to his right cheek and several smaller wounds on his feet, one of which was an exposed ligament. These wounds are most probably the result of an attack by another animal while he was trying to survive on his own. Beau is estimated to have been born about June 19, 2018, so was about four years old when he arrived at DunRoamin'.

Beau has undergone sedation several times so far to have his wound drained, treated and sutured. He was prescribed pain medications and antibiotics to combat his injuries. Beau was also diagnosed with Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) which you can read about here. He currently lives with his other two FIV+ friends, Crombie and Jedi and all are doing well. Donations to help with his medical care are greatly appreciated.

Crombie

"Crombie" came to DunRoamin' on April 23, 2022 from Crombie Settlement, NB. He had been found in an abandoned house where he had been seeking shelter for quite some time. A kind lady had tried to catch him, but when she went back to the house he was gone. Approximately two weeks later, she was able to find and rescue him.

Crombie was born about April 23, 2012. Assessment by his new vet friend showed that he was very dirty, matted, emaciated, had fleas, ear mites, internal parasites and a luxating patella on his right leg. He had obviously been having a hard time trying to survive, but the worst and probably most painful thing was his mouth. All his teeth were rotten and required to be removed. He also had a very bad abscess on his tongue which had resulted in a hole through his tongue.

Crombie was immediately provided antibiotics, pain medication and a nice warm and comfortable bed. He was also given wet food which he devoured. Despite his physical condition, he was soon purring and kneading - saying thank you to his new vet for her help to make him more comfortable.

Crombie is currently doing well. He is gaining strength and feeling much better. As are all DunRoamin' strays, he will be neutered, fully vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV, and his parasites were one of the very first things treated - nobody needs those!

Update: Crombie has tested positive for FIV, and his mouth is healing well which he is very grateful for!

Crombie is a very sweet, playful boy. He loves other cats, and loves to cuddle with people. He will be ready for his furever home very soon.

Tanoo

"Tanoo" and her kittens, Tamper, Tamara, Tardis, Trax and Tenet all came to DunRoamin' from the Fielding area on November 14, 2021, where they were living alone in and around an abandoned building. The location was cold, provided little shelter and very little food. Tanoo was born about November 18, 2019, and her babies were only about six weeks old. All kittens have since found homes.

Tanoo is a beautiful little girl who was initially very timid, as she had apparently never known the safety and security of a loving family. She is still slightly timid and it takes a minute for her to learn to trust a new person, but she has come a very long way and is doing well.

We hope that Tanoo can find a loving family who will give her a warm home where she can spend the rest of her life. She was born about November 18, 2019 and we're hoping she gets the opportunity to know a nice warm lap and the joy of playing with a computer mouse! Please come meet her.

Chicory

"Chicory" returned to DunRoamin' on December 6, 2022. He had been adopted in June, 2020, but had been returned as his family was no longer able to care for him, which is our policy. Chicory was born about June 1, 2010 and is a real sweetheart.

Chicory is currently on Tapazole to control his hyperthyroidism, a tablet he takes daily with absolutely no complaint! He is a friendly, purring, happy, playful little boy who hopes for a new home very soon. Please give us a call if you'd like to meet him. He's about twelve years old and set in his personality which is "I love humans, I want to cuddle, I want to keep you company." He is a sweetheart and a real prize for anyone who loves feline companionship and would be perfect for a quiet home where he has his very own human(s)!

On March 8, 2023, Chicory was introduced to a lovely couple from Moncton who had seen him online and fallen in love. In addition to his personality and good looks, they were drawn to the fact that they had another cat who had hyperthyroidism and was on the exact same medication and dose as Chicory! They wanted to help another cat have a wonderful life and since they were already familiar with his medical issue, they chose him. Sadly, Chicory and their cat did not see things eye-to-eye, and as both were stressed and unhappy, Chicory returned to us to find a more suitable home. We thank his adopters for all their kindnesses to Chicory.

Chicory appears to pick and choose cats with whom he will share his affections. He gets along with some cats but appears to take offence with others! Chicory is an extremely affectionate cat to humans, so perhaps it might be in his best interest to be an only cat, as long as there is plenty of human attention and interaction. He is very loving and attentive and would love to have one or two humans to call his own. Please come meet him - you won't be able to resist his charms!

Lolli

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

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

Lolli was diagnosed with a moderately severe heart murmur. She said she'd like to stay with her DunRoamin' friends unless a nice quiet home comes along where she can live happily and stress-free. She looks forward to a home of her very own.

"Kensi" came to DunRoamin' on July 6, 2022 from the Woodstock area where her owners could no longer care for her. Born about May 5, 2019, Kensi had developed kidney stones and required surgery which took place on July 7. Of course, with the skills of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic, surgery was successful and Kensi is recovering well.

Kensi is overweight and will need a diet to ensure that she soon is of a healthy weight. We will keep you informed about her kidney stones - we're hoping that with a regular diet as she loses weight that she will be fine. She weighed about 18 pounds when she arrived, so will definitely need to lose weight to become healthy. She is a beautiful little girl!

Lawrence also had a wound on his hind leg which required medical care. It is healing quickly and he is responding well to his insulin.

"Yaeger" came to DunRoamin' on January 17, 2023 from Somerville, NB. He had been a stray in the area for about four years but was now injured and had no one to care for him.

Yaeger was born about January 17, 2014. He had several deep wounds on the side of his face that were probably self-inflicted due to the large number of parasites he was carrying which made him so itchy and uncomfortable that he scratched himself very badly in an effort to stop the pain. Yaeger was immediately provided with all medical care required, including parasite control. As of February 17, 2023, his wounds are healing well. He is a very nice boy who has tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. Please read about it here.

Yaeger's wounds have healed very well. He may still have a bit of scarring on his face (or not!), but his eyes glow with gratitude now that he is pain-free, warm, safe and has such a delicious and nutritious diet. He would love to have his very own home and family - that would be a miracle to him! Please come meet him - he loves people and has lots of attitude!!

Scranton

"Scranton" came to DunRoamin' on March 13, 2023 from the Woodstock area. Born about March 16, 2021, he had been blocked (meaning that crystals had blocked his urethra so that urine could not pass from his body). Surgery quickly remedied this situation and he is now fully recovered. He currently is eating Royal Canin Urinary S/O, a prescription food, to ensure he does not block again. We have had dozens of cats on this diet and they have never blocked again, so he will be good to go very soon! He has been neutered, fully vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites. Scranton is an affectionate, loving little cat and is more than ready to meet the family he deserves!

Huxley

"Huxley" returned to DunRoamin' on December 26, 2023. He had been adopted to a home in Bath, NB, but due to personal issues, they were no longer able to care for him. Huxley originally came to us on April 4, 2011 from the Hartland area where he had been found with frostbite, diarrhea, bite wounds and he was starving. He also had tear wounds on his side as if he had been lifted by a large bird, perhaps, and dropped.

Huxley was born about May 1, 2010. He is a sweet little boy who has a really cute "R-owww!" He is loving, affectionate, and his big, round, loving eyes will win your heart! And he's a cuddler! His vaccines are up to date and he is currently fostered by a very caring vet as he is experiencing some medical issues, but he is gaining ground! He will not be available for adoption for a bit, but in the meantime, he has the very best care possible!

Shirley

"Shirley" came to DunRoamin' from Woodstock, NB on July 24, 2023. She had been found as a stray and it was believed she had trouble breathing. Examination by her new vet showed that she had some upper respiratory infection but was otherwise fine. She was born about July 24, 2020 and is a beautiful little girl. She had a bit of diarrhea, but that will quickly resolve with proper medications from her new vet. She hopes to have a safe, warm, loving and permanent home once she is fully up to date on her vaccines, is tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites. Shirley was already spayed upon her arrival.

Jovi

"Jovi" came to DunRoamin' on November 7, 2023 from Wicklow where he was alleged to be a nasty stray who had been urinating on the front step of a home. We were his last chance at life, as no other help was available for him. Jovi was born about November 7, 2022, so was only about a year old.

Jovi is a friendly, loving little boy who is obviously familiar with being in a home situation. He was diagnosed with three stones in his bladder which were removed by his vet at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic and he is doing much better - he has never once missed his litter box since Day 1. Jovi will be neutered, tested for FIV and FeLV, fully vaccinated and treated for all parasites. Then he hopes for a family who will love him for the rest of his life! He is a very sweet little boy!

Thea

"Thea" originally came to DunRoamin' on September 18, 2018 from the Hartland area where she was not in good shape. Born about July 2, 2007, she had a prolapsed rectum, ear mites and many scabs on her head from scratching due to the excessive itching and discomfort caused by the ear mites.

Thea was fostered by a kind and great supporter of DunRoamin', but Thea had taken a dislike to his cat, so she came back to stay with us on December 7, 2023. Thea appears to be ageless: although she is about 16 years old, she looks and acts like a kitten. She will jump from a chair to your shoulder to get attention, and her favourite thing to do is cuddle. She is extremely affectionate, and wants only to share a chair/couch/bed with a loving human. Thea is spayed and up to date on all vaccines until August of 2025. She may prefer to be an only cat in the household, so if you're looking for just one cat to make your house a home, she just may be your girl! Please get in touch if you'd like to meet this little sweetheart!

Lou

"Lou" came to DunRoamin' on December 7, 2022 from Perth-Andover, NB, where he had been a stray who had been hanging around the area for quite some time. He was not in good shape.

Lou appears to have been born around December 8, 2012, so is approximately ten years old - maybe more. He was very skinny and his ears were full of ear mite debris which may have made it difficult for him to hear. He is receiving medication to rectify that. He was dehydrated, had ropey intestines, was very skinny, has a heart murmur, minor tartar on his teeth, and his left hip has a poor range of motion, perhaps due to an old injury that was never treated. Lou was already neutered, so probably belonged to someone at some point, although his body condition seems to say he's been on his own for quite some time - maybe even years.

Lou is a sweet boy who is very grateful to be warm, safe and have a full belly. He has been sleeping most of his time with us so far and we hope he will gain strength and health again soon. We are all grateful to the lady who brought him for help. Donations for his care are gratefully accepted - he deserves the best life possible now, and that's what we hope to give him.

On January 22, 2023, Lou went to stay with his favourite new person as a foster cat in Florenceville. He has been diagnosed with kidney problems, so he will happily live with this very loving lady for the rest of his life where he will get the best of love and medical care.
