"They that love beyond the world cannot be separated. Death cannot kill what never dies. Nor can Spirits ever be divided
that love and live in the same Divine Principle; the Root and Record of their Friendship.
Death is but crossing the world, as Friends to the seas; they live in one another still." ~ William Penn

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

Jenkins was born about October 6, 2015 and enjoyed tummy rubs, sitting on laps and head butts.  He was timid with new people or surroundings, but he settled in well and was very curious and playful.  He loved his foster family - especially his foster mother and friend Chazzy.

We are so sad to report that Jenkins left us on the afternoon of January 19,2018. We are glad he had the good fortune to have such a wonderful life with his foster family.  We'll see you again at Rainbow Bridge, Jenkins.

"Lilo," "Stitch" and "Hani," all Husky mixed-breed puppies, came to us on March 23, 2018 as surrenders from the NB SPCA.  They were all cold and extremely ill with parvovirus, a terrible disease which attacks the gastrointestinal tract and immune system causing severe vomiting, diarrhea and dehydration. 

Parvovirus is highly contagious and is spread through direct contact with infected dogs or infected feces and is easily carried on hands, food dishes, clothing, leashes, shoes, etc.  Left untreated, few dogs survive.  Sadly, these three little puppies were not fortunate enough to arrive in time for medical care to be effective.  They were born about December 17, 2017 and passed away on March 23, 2018. 

On Lilo's, Stitch's and Hani's behalf, we remind everyone to please spay and neuter your pets and to vaccinate them to ensure they are protected from these terrible contagious diseases.  We are comforted to know that their suffering is over and they are playing in the sunshine and green grass of Rainbow Bridge.  We'll see you again there.

"Garfield" came to us on April 13, 2018 from the Perth-Andover area where he had been a stray who was found by a gentleman who realized that he needed medical care immediately. Garfield was born about October 14, 2017.

Garfield was dehydrated, emaciated, had ear mites, fleas, diarrhea, nausea, was weak and lethargic. Staff at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic immediately went into action to try to help this little boy.  Unfortunately, he was not able to survive and he passed away on the morning of April 16, 2018.  He was a very sweet little kitten who deserved better, and in his memory we encourage all pet owners to spay and neuter their pets so that more are not born into a world where they may become homeless, sick or injured and have no one to care for them.  We'll see you at Rainbow Bridge, Garfield.

"Jaguar" came to us on the morning of April 20, 2018 from Bristol, NB where he had been found under a deck.  He was not in good shape at all. He was brought for help and it was found that he was dehydrated, had extremely bad upper respiratory infection with a large nasal discharge.  He also had marked anemia and was in renal failure.

All assistance was provided to this little boy to make sure he was warm and as comfortable as possible, but unfortunately he was not able to survive.  We are happy that he had some comfort at the end, but we wish he did not have to go through this.  Please spay and neuter your pets to help ensure that more animals do not have to suffer . . .

"May" was born to Tovah, a feral cat from a colony in Glassville on May 6, 2018.  Their living conditions were not good and several cats and kittens were found to be deceased at that location.  Tovah gave birth to May and three siblings, but despite intensive medical care, May was unable to beat the odds to survive.  We're grateful that she at least knew love, warmth and concern for the very short time she was with us.  She survived less than 24 hours, but knew love and affection for that short time.

She (and we) would like to reiterate the necessity for spaying and neutering to help ensure that these needless illnesses, injuries and deaths do not occur to homeless and helpless animals in our communities.  All need someone to care for them and with the large numbers of homeless animals, too many suffer needless pain, illness, injury and death.  May is grateful that her family is receiving the care they need and deserve, as are we.  We wish we could have helped you, May.  We'll see you at Rainbow Bridge some day.

"Falyn" came to us on May 28, 2018 from Holmesville where she was found laying on a lawn.  She was panting heavily and obviously required medical assistance.

Falyn was broght tot he FLorenceville Veterinary Clinic where it was learned that she was in the process of aborting two kittens.  Sadly, these two babies did not survive.  Despite all medical support, Falyn was not able to survive more than a couple of hours.  She was only about ten months old, just a baby herself, having been born about July 28, 2017.

In memory of Falyn, we remind and encourage people to please spay and neuter their pets so that they do not have to undergo such terrible hardships.  This beautiful little orange and white kitten and her babies are now at Rainbow Bridge where we hope to meet them someday.

"Cayble" came to us on June 1, 2018, from Woodstock where he had been a stray who had been in the area for about six years.  He had recently appeared to be in bad shape and the other cats in the surrounding area had been picking on him and not allowing him near food.  He was born approximately sometime in 2010.  Cayble was brought for help and it was learned that he was thin, dehydrated and generally feeling unwell.  Tests revealed him to be positive for Feline Leukemia (FeLV+).  He was timid, but grateful for an unending healthy diet and lack of stress.  

On July 9, 2018, we said goodbye to Cayble after a short battle with cancer.  We're saddened that he had to endure such a hard life before finding his way to us, but we're grateful that we were able to provide him with the medication, home, compassion and love that he deserved during his final weeks with us.  His last days were spent eating all the best food and treats, laying in his favourite window bed soaking up the warm sun and getting lots of cuddles and chin rubs - he really enjoyed chin rubs!

We miss him, but know that he's now running pain-free and happy at Rainbow Bridge. We'll see you again, Cayble.

Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) is found in cats worldwide.  It may be spread by saliva, nasal secretions, urine, feces and milk from infected cats.  Cat-to-cat transfer of the virus may occur from a bite wound, during mutual grooming and (though rarely) through the shared use of litter boxes and feeding dishes.  Transfer may also take place from an infected mother cat to her kittens, either before they are born or while they are nursing.

"Ripley" came to us on April 18, 2018 from Woodstock where he was noticed in the centre of the road.  When the people drove back 20 minutes later, he was still there and they realized he needed help.  He was brought to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where he was immediately accepted as he was in dire straits. 

Unfortunately, he was found to be in critical condition due to abdominal distress.  Ripley left us on the afternoon of this day, but not before he was held, cuddled, and ensured to be pain-free.  He received all the love his vet and technicians could give him in the short time he was with us.  Rest well, Ripley.  We'll see you at Rainbow Bridge.

"Mister" came to us on May 6, 2017, found by a young man while riding his side-by-side near Red Bridge, NB, well after dark.  Mister was hungry, dehydrated, full of ear mites and fleas and was not neutered.  He was all alone near a ski-doo trail in the woods a very great distance from any populated area which could possibly have provided assistance.  He was born about May 6, 2016. 

Mister was fortunate to have been found by someone who cared enough to bring him for help.  One of his rescuers drove 15 minutes down a dirt road to meet Mister's original rescuer who transported him out of the deep woods on his side-by-side to ensure he would receive the medical treatment he required.  What huge hearts!  Thank you for bringing him to us!

Mister is a sweet little guy who slept for days from exhaustion once he realized he was safe, warm, had friends and had lots of good food to catch up on.  He was very grateful to have been rescued and he's very social - obviously has been with people before.  He had a pretty bad case of upper respiratory infection, but was soon doing extremely well with a little medical attention. 

We're sad to report that Mister inadvertently got out of his home and was struck by a vehicle in August, 2018.  We will miss you, as will your family.  We're glad you got an opportunity to be safe and loved.  We'll see you again at Rainbow Bridge, Mister. 

"Toonah" originally came to us from Bristol on May 3, 2011.  She was morbidly obese, had fleas and was very matted.  Her owner was unable to care for her and her options were limited.  She was accepted by her DunRoamin' friends and adopted to a home in Woodstock on May 9, 2011.  She was returned to DunRoamin' on September 5, 2015 when her family could no longer care for her.  Toonah was overweight and required a diet and some exercise to get her back to a healthy weight.  Toonah resided as queen of I-Lean's room and our reception area.

Toonah was born about 2003 and is a quiet and independent individual.  She enjoys company, especially when she's eating.  She also likes to lie beside you on the couch and sometimes even enjoys a nice warm lap.  She's a very special little girl who never asked for much - just food, water, a bed and someone to talk to.

On November 24, 2016, Toonah was diagnosed with cancer and underwent surgery to remove it on two occasions.  She stayed with us where she was spoiled even more than usual!  She was a very special little girl who greeted us each morning, followed us around and enjoyed her special treats and warm, cozy bed.  She was very special to us and we enjoyed watching her stomp around her kingdom.

We are sad to report that Toonah lost her battle on the afternoon of Monday, September 17, 2018.  Two of her very best friends were there to say goodbye and she is grateful to all who have given her the life and love she deserved.  We'll see you again at Rainbow Bridge, Toonah.  Until then . . . we will miss you every single day.

"Worthy" came to us from Summerfield, NB on September 6, 2018.  She was found on the side of the road by some people out for a walk and was thin, dehydrated and displayed neurological problems.  She was also malnourished, so she was fortunate to be fostered by a vet tech so that she'll got around-the-clock medical attention should she require it. 

Worthy was prescribed medication and received all the professional help we could give her.  She purred, payed close attention when talked to and made some progress as days went by.  We're grateful that she was not still on the side of a road all alone - it's been way too cold and wet lately - she's very fortunate to have been found and have a place to go.  She was born about July 26, 2018. 

On Sunday, September 30, 2018, Worthy left us.  Her neurological problems were not able to be cured but we're happy that she knew such love, affection and compassion in her short time with us.

"James" was found laying near the road in Bedell when people returned home from work on the late afternoon of October 8, 2018.  James was diagnosed with a several pelvic fractures, a ruptured bladder and many fleas.  James about a year old, was intact and we don't know if he had a family or not.  Sadly, James passed away shortly after he arrived.  We know you're now happy, painfree and enjoying life at Rainbow Bridge.  We wish we could have known you better.

"Warrior" came to us on the morning of October 15, 2018 when he was found beside a dumpster at Shur-Gain.  He was only about three years old and was already neutered.  He had a penetrating wound on his left hind leg and thigh which was very infected and he appeared to be experiencing seizures.  He had probably been injured for quite some time.

Warrior was given all medical aid available, but he was unable to survive his injuries.  We're glad you were warm and pain-free, Warrior.  We wish we could have gotten to know you better.  We'll see you again at Rainbow Bridge.

"Agnogg" came to DunRoamin' on December 23, 2011 from the Fielding area where a lady had noticed cat footprints that indicated the cat only had three legs. She put out food and kept a sharp eye out until this little one-year old girl came onto her deck. She was timid, but much more hungry than scared. Her left front leg had been traumatically removed. She was thin, starving, exhausted and had tapeworms. In addition, her right eye had received a previous injury which may lead to blindness in that eye. These injuries may have occurred due to being struck by a vehicle, and it would have happened several weeks ago, as the injuries were older and had never been treated. She would have been in much distress. She was born about December, 2010. She likes other cats, dogs and kids. She's very grateful to the lady who saved her, and was fostered by one of our DunRoamin' Kids where she slept on her bed each night. Her staples have been removed, her leg has healed nicely and she easily jumps up onto the bed where she enjoys sleeping in the warm sunshine in the daytime.

On December 18, 2012, we learned that Agnogg would definitely not be leaving her current abode. She has been adopted by her loving family who could not bear the thought of her being anywhere but with them!

Aggie was her human’s best friend and travelled away to school with her human. Her humans gave her the best life possible and spent every minute spoiling her. Aggie had everything she could have ever wanted. Aggie got a furry sister in July of 2018 and was not sure what to think. Aggie became very fond of her and they even shared toys and the kitty house.

Sadly, on October 21, 2018 Aggie left her humans and her sister and went to Rainbow Bridge. She will be greatly missed and has left paw prints on her humans forever. Aggie is forever loved. 

Cal-Gary Tigger Allaby - ~ 7Jul 2009 - 2 November 2018

Mr C Tigger Allaby has crossed the Rainbow Bridge today and he will be missed. He had been fighting for the past year and decided he had enough. It’s a sad day but he knew that once he left us, he would be healthy and happy - he has met up with all his siblings, cousins, aunts and uncles who have gone before him.
He started life as a dump cat - as he was dropped at the dump in Florenceville NB. Martha and Mildred Allison rescued him and his siblings on a summer day in August 2009. He was so hungry he bit Mil on the thumb!! He never really lost that hunger as he was famous for stealing food off of your plate or even right out of your hand!

He was fostered at the Hull residence, then went to DunRoamin’ which is where I met him. I was proud to adopt him and take him home with me in the fall of 2009. Nine years later I’m saddened to say goodbye to him but it is what is best for him. He had been diagnosed with a Lymphoma, which he probably had for quite a while. He wanted to fight so I brought him back home after seeing Dr. Shannon, but this morning he said enough so I set him free.

Tig is missed by all of his family. He ruled the roost for many years as the dominant male but he lost that edge due to his illness. The others did not pick on him. His big sister Tally was his biggest tormentor - for the first 6 months, then after that they had a love/hate relationship. He missed her when she crossed the Rainbow bridge and now has gone to be with her. I will miss him but I didn’t want him to suffer or be in pain so today at 3 pm I said goodbye to him, as did his Aunt Ray and Uncle Dave. He will never be forgotten.

"Columbus" came to us on August 23, 2018.  He had several injuries no doubt inflected in a confrontation with an automobile.  He had a broken leg, tail and pelvis.  That must have hurt!  Columbus was born about August 23, 2017, so was just a young one - he shouldn't have had to experience this!  Columbus was already neutered when he arrived.

Columbus had to have his tail amputated close to his body.  His leg had a pin inserted to help the break heal and the two fractures in his pelvis were expected to heal also.  His bladder and bowels, however, were a different problem.  Sometimes tail injuries inflict problems with both of these. He received all required medical intervention, including acupuncture and laser treatment.

Columbus was a social eater - he liked company while he was eating. Unfortunately, his bladder and bowels were damaged to a degree that made him unable to urinate on his own and he had no control over his bowels.  We're sad to report that Columbus left us in the early afternoon of November 2, 2018.  We wish we could have done more for you, Columbus, but we know you're now happy, pain-free and basking in the warm sunshine at Rainbow Bridge with many DunRoamin' friends.  We'll see you again some day.

Lily-Beth, born ~ August 15, 2010, adopted December 11, 2010

She was a loving, crazy girl who would always be the first of the 4 or 5 little girls who would greet me when I got home. She was the youngest who somehow always managed to be the boss. I was so lucky to have her for the years I did. Love them while you can, you just do not know how long they will be around.
