Adopt A Cat
"Lolita" is about two years old, and originally came to us from the Woodstock area on October 5, 2009. She had been struck by a car and was then surrendered to a local shelter because her owners could not afford the costs of her surgeries. She had sustained several facial and jaw fractures as a result of the incident. Lolita underwent surgeries and had her lower jaw wired together. She was on pain medication and antibiotics for a while, but quickly recovered very well.
Lolita is a beautiful long-haired white lady with double paws on the front. She'd like to live in a home without other cats or children, 'cause she seems to like adults best and prefers not to share the attention she loves so much. She loves water, and will sit in the sink until someone turns on the faucet so she can have a bath! She's a playful cat when she so chooses, and would make a very good friend and companion for anyone who loves cats, especially long-haired white ones with double paws!
"Chazzy" came to DunRoamin' on October 25, 2010, after being found on the side of the road in the pouring rain near Tim Horton's on Beardsley Road near Woodstock, NB two days earlier. He appeared to have an injured leg, as he would not let his rescuers touch it. He was very hungry, cold, wet and exhausted. He was taken in and cared for until he could be brought for medical help.
Chazzy was diagnosed with an extreme number of fleas. He had never been neutered, had worms, bloody diarrhea and an ulcerated tongue. This would have made it very difficult and painful to eat, thus explaining his lack of weight.
Chazzy was treated for all his medical problems. He shows his gratitude by purring, kneading and cuddling with any human who gets close to him. He lived with 20 other cats, and he got along perfectly well with every single one. He plays like a little kitten! He's a beautiful boy who would really like to have a warm, safe home forever. His ramblin' days are done! It's no fun!! And by the way, he'd be pleased to go to any home - he's even warming up to dogs!
"Olive Ingrid White" was born about March 2009 and came to DunRoamin' on December 8, 2010. She had arrived at a shelter with a fractured pelvis. Due to her injury, her body was unable to remove excrement, and along with the pain of her injury, she was severely constipated. Her whole abdomen was full of rock-hard pieces of excrement that could not move. She stood a good chance of being euthanized.
Dr Monteith took one look at her and decided it was time for a miracle. After all, isn't that what Christmas is all about? Due to her vet's efforts, as of just hours after her arrival, Olive's constipation had already improved. She was eating and receiving all the pain medication and medical care she required. She's named after "the other reindeer," and is hoping her own miracle will occur and she finds that special someone. She did very well in her recuperation, and is now 100% recovered. She loves to play, especially with dangling strings, and she loves dogs.
On January 28, 2011, "Goochi," just 10 weeks old, came to DunRoamin' from the Bristol area where she was one of three kittens who were feral, cold, hungry and very scared. They had a terrible amount of parasites, including fleas, ear mites and worms. All these troubles were quickly addressed.
Goochi was rescued by a senior citizen who had seen her, her mother and two sisters in the snow outside her apartment. The temperatures had been colder than -25*C and when you add in the wind chill, few creatures, if any, could survive outdoors for long on their own in that kind of cold.
Even with the terribly cold temperatures, when the lady saw them in her back yard, she left her patio door open so they could come in where it was warm and get some food. Even as feral as they were, they recognized compassion and came slowly inside. When the senior citizen would get up to close the door, they'd run back outside. She finally trapped them in her apartment, and they came to us for help. Goochi is currently waiting for her permanent home while enjoying the comforts of a foster home in Brighton.
This young beauty is "Joplin." On May 26, 2011, while in the Debec area, Dr Monteith noticed a pregnant stray running loose. She picked her up, realizing that she needed help. Only a very few hours later, Joplin gave birth to six little kittens. She's grateful for the warm bed, food, and safe place for her and her family of two boys and four girls. She was born about May, 2010.
Hendrix, Nicks, Ronstadt, Stevie, Benatar and Morrison (two tabbies, three orange, and one white) were born between 2 and 4 pm on May 25, 2011. They have all found loving homes. Joplin is still waiting for her turn. She's a friendly, affectionate and beautiful girl. She enjoys attention very much, but is not demanding of it. She's just a quiet little girl who would love to lay on your lap while you work on your computer, watch TV or read a book. She just likes to have company around her, and she's very good company herself.
"Cancel" came to us on May 30, 2011, one of three mother cats who had been living with their collective 11 kittens in Mainstream under the unoccupied home of a man who was undergoing cancer treatment in Saint John. They had no one to care for them. They were all healthy, and the moms were beautiful, loving and affectionate. Had they not been accepted by DunRoamin', chances are some of them would have died, some would spend their days fighting to stay alive, and all would have continued to contribute to the growing number of unwanted strays. Cancel, about a year and a half old, and her daughter Cate and sons Canyon, Clapton, and Carey, who were born around the first of May, 2011, were fostered in Jacksonville. Sadly, Carey did not survive, but Cate found a permanent home. Clapton and Canyon were adopted to a wonderful home in Centreville. Cancel is still hoping for a loving home for herself.
This is "Dancer." On June 28, 2011, three cats and 12 kittens were rescued from a barn near Hartland. They were enclosed in a shed and were hungry and thirsty. Most had ear mites, fleas and worms, and they appeared to be from three families. Dancer was the mother of four little girls - Dazzler, Domino, Dizzy and Dylan. All were slightly timid, and appeared to not have had much human contact. The kittens rapidly became socialized, though, with the help of their foster family and feline foster brothers and sisters. We'd like to thank Kelly and Kevin for taking them in and giving them a chance at becoming members of a real family. Dancer has come a very long way from the frightened, timid, hand-shy little girl that arrived only a few months ago. She may flinch when you reach to pat her, but she quickly remembers that all hands are good here, and comes running back to be cuddled. She loves to play like a kitten, and she's a real sweetheart.
This is "Dylan." On June 28, 2011, three cats and 12 kittens were rescued from a barn near Hartland. They were enclosed in a shed and were hungry and thirsty. Most had ear mites, fleas and worms. They appear to be from three families. Dancer was the mother of four little girls - Dylan, Domino, Dizzy and Dazzler (see above) who were born about May 25, 2011. (Dizzy and Domino have been adopted). All were slightly timid, and appear not to have had much human contact. The kittens quickly became socialized, though, with the help of their foster family and feline foster brothers and sisters. We'd like to thank Kelly and Kevin, as well as their other foster families, for taking them in and giving them a chance at becoming members of a real family. They're doing very well and are anxious for homes now. You can meet them at the Clinic.
"Dell" came to DunRoamin' on August 1, 2011 from Knowlesville where he was an injured stray who was very scared. It took his rescuer quite some time to catch him to bring him to help, even with his injury.
The femur of Dell's left hind leg was fractured, and he was very thin and scared, but was still purring. He was born about the first of June of this year.
Surgery was contemplated, but it appears that his leg is healing well on its own. He just needs a little medication and lots of rest and recuperation time. Dell is a beautiful little kitten who loves to snuggle up under a blanket and purr himself to sleep . He's just a little ol' purrball.
"Finch" came to us on August 15, 2011 from Bath where someone had seen her dropped off by a truck near Mark's The Spot, along with some siblings. She's about 10 - 12 weeks old, and although she had fleas, ear mites and was hungry and scared, she's relatively healthy.
She just needs a place to gain some confidence in herself, and she needs lots of love and companionship to do that. As we're currently completely overwhelmed, we're hoping she'll get a foster home soon and someone will meet her and decide she'd be the perfect companion. She has a really sweet personality.
"Griselda" came from Woodstock where she and some kittens were trying to survive in a trailer park. They were not doing so well, because several had already died. Griselda came to us on August 15, 2011. She is relatively healthy and is a friendly and loving cat who is at least 10 years old. She wants only a safe home where she can give everything she has to a family. She'd like a foster home for now, or maybe even a permanent one, please. She's become very outgoing and affectionate, now that she's confident she's safe and will always have food. She's currently at the Clinic. Please come meet her.
"Moe" and his siblings Larri, Curly and Fritz were found on August 22, 2011 in Woodstock by the Town Police who were patrolling near JR's on Lower Main Street. They were full of fleas, ear mites and worms - obviously very uncomfortable. They had no mother to care for them, and it's been very damp and cold lately.
Moe and his family are fostered by a nice lady from Woodstock, where they've learned to be social and showing their gratitude daily. They were born about June 1, 2011, and are happy to think that they might soon have a family to love them.
"Curly" and his siblings Larri, Moe, and Fritz were found on August 22, 2011 in Woodstock by the Town Police who were patrolling near JR's on Lower Main Street. They were full of fleas, ear mites and worms - obviously very uncomfortable. They had no mother to care for them, and it's been very damp and cold lately. Curly has beautiful blue eye, and he's old enough that they will not change colour. He's gorgeous!
Curly and his family are fostered by a nice lady from Woodstock, where they've learned to be social and show their gratitude daily. They were born about June 1, 2011, and are happy to think that they might soon have a family to love them.
"Tracey" came to us on August 22, 2011 from Tracey Mills where she had been found wandering all alone. She was wearing a white flea collar that was very tight around her neck, she was covered with an excessive amount of fleas and was very thin, as though she hadn't eaten well in a very long time. She was already spayed, so that and the collar lead to the conclusion that she belongs in a home with her family. Her rescuer tried to locate her family, but had absolutely no luck.
Tracey is a very loving cat. She is not at all shy and has obviously been part of a loving household. She has been treated for her fleas and has been eating up a storm since she's been here. She's probably a little less than two years old. If you know anyone who's searching for her, please let them know she's safe and is waiting for her family to come claim her. Otherwise, she'd love to go home with a new family.
"Adidas" came to us on August 31, 2011 from Woodstock where she and her five kittens were covered with fleas so badly that they were anemic. They were also starving and cold. Adidas was probably born about the end of July, 2010. One of the kittens, Fila, was unable to survive and passed away shortly after coming through the door. The others (see below), three boys (Nike, Reebok and DC) and one girl (Puma) required intensive vet care. Sadly, Puma did not survive. The kittens were about four weeks old when they came to us. DC is the only kitten still waiting for a home..
"Spock" came to us on September 21, 2011 from the Centreville area where he was seen lying on the side of the road. He was initially thought to be dead, but when his rescuers checked on him, they immediately brought him for help. He's about four and a half years old. He had never been neutered, he was very skinny, had a very large amount of ear mites which have caused damage to his ears, and he had a ruptured eardrum as a result. He also had many bite wounds on his body, including all four feet. He tested positive for Feline AIDS. He was put on antibiotics, parasite medications and pain medications to help him deal with these problems, and as of October 20th, he's doing very well.
Spock must either live with no other cats or with cats who already have tested positive for Feline AIDS so he does not pass it on to others. He's a very nice boy who is grateful for the warm bed and lots of canned food, which he wolfs down as quickly as it's put in front of him. On November 14, 2011 he went to be fostered with a very nice lady in Woodstock where he has made himself right at home! Have a great time, Spock!
"Edge" came to us from the Woodstock area on November 6, 2011. She appeared to be about a year and a half old and was a stray who wandered into the yard of a lady who had just moved to Woodstock. She had fleas, ear mites, and was so dehydrated that she had to be given IV fluids. She had a temperature, and had a mass in her stomach.
Edge had not kept any food down in 48 hours, as she vomited it back up soon after eating, but with medical assistance she's become very healthy. She was spayed on November 15th and is ready to go to a foster home or a permanent home now. She's very vocal and loves attention and affection. She'll follow you and be wherever you are for company. She's having no problem at all with her food now! She loves it! She's currently fostered by one of our student volunteers where she's in heaven!!
"Kringle" came from Woodstock where he'd been running loose for about three weeks. Two weeks ago someone noticed that his eye was injured. We offered to treat the injury if the person could take him and keep him warm, safe and fed for about a month, when we hoped to have room for him, as we currently have no place for him to go. This person refused and brought him to DunRoamin' on December 13, 2011, where they insisted that he either would be taken by us or he'd be taken back and let loose to survive on his own.
Kringle's right eye has been injured, perhaps in a fight. He has external scarring on his eye and has lost vision in it as a result. He would have a very difficult time surviving outside on his own. As a result of his injury, Kringle has been rubbing his eye and his lower eyelid has rolled inward where it had damaged his eye to the extent that it had to be removed. Kringle also had fleas and ear mites. He was wearing a flea collar, so he's been somebody's family at some point. He was an intact male who is about two years old. He'll be okay now. He's currently fostered by a volunteer in Bath, where he's living happily with two dogs and several other cats whom he loves.
"Cersei" came to DunRoamin' from Gordonsville on January 12, 2012 where she had been slipping into an insulated outdoor cat box built buy some caring people to ensure cats had shelter when they were outdoors on these cold winter days. A "stranger in the night" who came and left before being observed, Cersei's saviours were alerted by their dog Maddy that she was in the box, and this time seemed willing to stay. She was immediately given food and warmth, and snuggled up and purred and kneaded. She was examined by a vet the very next morning where it was learned she is about two or three years old, had fleas, was cold, very thin and was dehydrated to the point that she required intravenous fluids. She will require medical care and observation for several days. She was only 4.7 pounds, and had a thick fur coat, so she has been outdoors for awhile, but obviously could not find enough food to sustain herself. Cersei is enjoying a warm bed and lots of food, and will be well cared for until she finds a loving permanent home. As her rescuer said, "Like a starfish on a beach that was picked up and thrown back to sea, help mattered to that one . . ." Cersei is showing her gratitude by putting on weight and loving every human she meets! On February 18, 2012, she went to a foster home in Riverbank while she awaits a permanent family.
"Tyrion" came to DunRoamin' from Woodstock on January 16, 2012 where he was found on the trail behind JR's the night before by some people out for a walk. Tyrion was emaciated, dehydrated and had bad infections in both eyes. He was having a hard time breathing also. Tyrion was only about one and a half years old. He was brought for help, quickly treated and given a nice warm bed and food. He tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, which means that since it can be potentially contagious he must live by himself or with another cat who already has FIV.
Tyrion was very sick, but the skill and efforts of his vet team have proven to be successful. He's perfectly healthy now and will jump up to greet his visitors and beg for a pat and a chin rub! He's ready for a home, and he can't wait!!
"Rally" came to DunRoamin' on March 8, 2012 from the Oakland area where she had been abandoned when her owner moved away. Neighbours had tried to catch her for several days, but she was terrified. They had a difficult time, but they did not give up. They finally were successful in catching her and brought her for help. Rally was about one year old.
Rally was very sick a bad upper respiratory infection. Her breathing sounded very wet and she struggled for air. Her eyes were also infected. Since she could not smell, she would not eat, and it was necessary to force feed her with a syringe. Regardless of all her troubles, she kneaded and purred - well aware that she was getting the help she needed. Her medications have made a huge difference, and she's doing very well in her new foster home with one of our DunRoamin' Kids. She feels much better and shows it by kneading and purring constantly if a human is within touching distance!
"Levon Helm," named after The Band's drummer who recently passed away, came to us from Woodstock on May 2, 2012, where he had been dropped off. He had large open wounds behind both ears about an inch and a half in diameter, his fur was matted with burdocks, he had several broken teeth, his eye was infected, and he was not neutered. He's about two years old.
Levon is a nice boy. He was treated for his injuries and has been neutered and had all the burdocks removed from his fur. He's eating everything in sight as though he's afraid when it's all gone, there'll be no more. He's a little timid, but he's becoming more confident now that he has friends. He's content to eat and sleep as much as he can, now that he's aware that he's safe and will be well cared for. His eye has improved greatly, and he's very happy to be patted. It seems he's quite a purrer!
"Figaro" came back to us on May 23, 2012. He was born about the middle of August, 2011. He and his four siblings, Frisko, Flora, Fifi and Fiji had been found on the side of a road in East Brighton on October 28, 2011. No mother was present, and no one was caring for them. Figaro was adopted to a home in Bristol on March 27, 2012.
Figaro had developed diarrhea, and his owner had been bathing him and ensuring he was clean, but as he was starting work, he was concerned that he could not keep doing that. Other than the diarrhea, Figaro was fine. He's a sweet little boy. He has been diagnosed with irritable bowel disease which just means that he must eat a diet of Hypo-allergenic food, and he'll be fine. He's hoping for a home where he can either live by himself or with another cat who also eats Hypo food. He's very anxious for a family, and he really deserves the very best.
This is "Iggy." She came to us on the afternoon of June 21, 2012 from Bedell where a lady visiting from South Carolina observed that she was in trouble. She attempted to help her for about a week, but Iggy would not allow herself to be caught. She eventually noticed that she was limping and was finally able to catch her.
Iggy had been wearing a collar through which she had gotten her leg stuck. The collar had worn right through her fur, skin and muscle and embedded itself in her body. The metal buckle of the collar had twisted around so that it was lodged between her shoulder blades and it had rubbed so badly that it had removed hair and flesh from that location. With her leg stuck in such a manner, she was obviously unable to hunt for enough food to sustain herself, and she was extremely emaciated. She also had fleas and earmites and her injuries were infected and infested with maggots. It was too easy to see that she was in great pain. She was born about October 15, 2011.
Iggy's collar was immediately removed, her injuries were cleaned and she was given intravenous fluids, antibiotics and pain medication. She was also given plenty of food and water, and it seems she never wants to stop eating and drinking. It'll take a while for her to catch up on her nutrition and hydration. She'll undergo surgery on June 22 to attempt to repair the damage caused by the collar. She kneads when her caretakers talk to her, grateful for her new-found freedom from pain and hunger. She's currently fostered in Jacksonville.
"Tribute" came to us on June 23, 2012 from MacKenzie Corner where he was a stray who had probably been dropped at the home of people known to care for cats. They noticed that he was limping quite badly and needed medical attention. He's about two years old, and he has a bad abscess on his right hind leg. He also weighs much less than he should. He was a hungry and exhausted little boy.
Tribute's injury was treated and he is receiving all necessary medical care. Once he's healthy enough, he'll be neutered and vaccinated. He's a very nice little boy. He's a bit timid, but that won't last long with all the love and attention he's getting now that he's been rescued!
"Barbarossa" came to DunRoamin' on June 24, 2012 from the Debec area where he was apparently abandoned. Some people tried to catch him for several days because he appeared to have an injured hind leg and was drooling badly. He was eventually live trapped. Barbarossa is an intact male who is about two years old and is very timid.
He was examined and diagnosed with earmites, marked gingivitis, ulcers and infection on his tongue (this would make it very hard to eat). He also has several bite wounds on his head and body and a bad wound on his left thigh. He was most likely attacked and bitten, perhaps by a dog, fox or coyote.
Barbarossa's injuries were treated, and he's now neutered. He also had to have teeth removed, but he's fine now. He's ready for a nice foster home now, or better yet, a permanent home.
"Chip" came to DunRoamin' on June 29, 2012 from the Bath area where he had been seen as a stray for several weeks. A kind couple had been feeding him when they could. He recently displayed signs of injury, so he was caught and brought for help.
Chip is about three years old and had earmites and several wounds on his body, the worst of which was on the back of his right hind leg. He was not neutered, and his wounds may have been the result of fighting with other toms over food or territory.
Chip's injuries were treated and he was neutered. He's perfectly fine now and is happy to be in a foster home in Rosedale until he's fortunate enough to get a permanent home.
"Kimball" was found on the Allison Road in Riverbank on July 2, 2012, no doubt dropped off there on the Canada Day weekend. He was hungry, had fleas, worms, earmites and an infected eye. He was not neutered. He's very friendly and cuddly and he loves dogs. Kimball was born about June 1, 2010.
He's a very nice boy who loves all people and is happy to have food and fresh cold water. His medical needs were addressed and he was neutered. Once he puts on a pound or two (which he's done very easily), he'd very much like to live as part of a family - it seems it's been his dream for about two years now.
"Kourtney" and his siblings Kris, Khloe and Kim, the Katashian Kittens, came to us on Saturday, July 7, 2012 from Woodstock where they were living with their mother under a store on Main Street. Fortunately, an employee was keeping an eye on them and realized that one had a problem with his leg. Their mother was feral and the kittens were about four and a half weeks old.
While the other three kittens seemed to be healthy, Kris was born with a congenital deformity in his right hind leg. His knee had no muscle and he had been dragging it behind him. Our vets went to work to help him and his leg was taped with a splint in the hopes that it could develop and he will be able to use it. His siblings were very protective of him. If he meows, they all come running to his side and cover him up by laying on or against him to make sure he's warm. Sadly, due to the poor start they had, all of Kourtney's siblings passed away. You can read about them on our Pet Memorials page. Kourtney is hoping for a new family soon.
"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 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 experienced some problems there and came back to us for help as she had a bladder infection, but she's perfectly fine now.
Dizzy was a little bit timid, but is well over that now. She particularly seems to be attracted to men! She lives with several other cats with whom she gets along just fine!
Meet "Emm." She and her two daughters, Bee and Double U were rescued from an abandoned home in Newburg in mid-August by a student who was moving away to school. They came to us on August 27, 2012. She already had three cats of her own she was taking with her and couldn't take three more, but also couldn't leave them on their own. She gave them food, shelter and love enough to show them that people were willing to help. They had fleas, earmites and were happy to have food and a safe place to rest.
Bee and Double U are both adopted. They were fostered by one of our DunRoamin' Kids in Woodstock. We're so grateful for our students who help care for these little ones and provide loving foster homes until permanent homes can be found for them. Now just Emm is left awaiting a home. We hope she finds one soon.
"Bubblegum" came to us on September 6, 2012 along with her five siblings from Oakland where they were found in a box on a doorstep. They had terrible fleas, upper respiratory infection, were very thin and very hungry.
She and her siblings were fortunate to have a wonderful foster homes and quickly became very healthy, social and happy little beings. Bubblegum was born about the middle of July, 2012.
Bubblegum is the last of her family to find a home. She's very sweet and affectionate, quiet and appreciative of love, attention and friendship. She's hoping for a home very soon.
"Gail" and her four kittens Greer, Gaines, Gamble and Gardner (see below) came to us on September 14, 2012 from Hartland where a kind and generous couple had been feeding several strays that had been dropped off in their area. The lady had recently passed away and the man was moving, so these young ones would no longer have anyone to watch out for them. All will be spayed/neutered, of course, as well as vaccinated, tested for FeLV and FIV and treated for parasites.
Gail is about a year old, and although she's a little timid, she's already come a long way in showing that she'll easily be an affectionate companion. We'd like to thank Michelle who is fostering her in Woodstock until she finds a permanent home.
"Jaime" came to us on the afternoon of September 15, 2012 from Mainstream where she had been seen for quite some time. She had a bad abscess in her right cheek, a huge amount of fleas and her left ear was badly infected. She is about two years old.
Jaime is a little timid, but snuggles in if she's picked up. She even purrs now and then! Her ears are being treated for the infection and she's getting much better day by day. On September 29, 2012 she went to stay with a foster family in the Hartland area. Thanks, Terri-Lynn and Chris!
"Pink" came to DunRoamin' on September 27, 2012 when she was observed hanging around a home in Bedell for about two days. It quickly became apparent that she needed help, so a kind lady brought her to us.
Pink had a bad abscess on her left hind leg which was treated. It appears she'll be fine now, with a little food and a safe warm bed to go along with her medication. She's only about one year old and is quiet, gentle and unassuming. She spent the Christmas holidays with a foster family in Connell. Thanks for giving her a first real Christmas, Steph and Chris!
"Julia" came to us on October 1, 2012. Her owner had passed away and she had no place to go. She had fleas, but was otherwise healthy.
Julia is a beautiful tabby and she has double paws on the front. She's very quiet, loving and affectionate. She loves attention, but is not aggressive about getting it. If you're willing to cuddle or pat her, that's just fine with her!
We'd like to thank Chris and Terri-Lynn for fostering her in Wakefield until she can find a new home.
"Hearts" came to DunRoamin' on October 5, 2012 from Centreville where he was found by a compassionate woman. He was barely alive, was very cold and anemic. Intensive vet care has brought him back to where he should be, and he's grateful to his medical staff who has given him a second chance. He's currently living with Vada (see above) and they're best friends.
Hearts is very loving and affectionate, and you'd never know that he had been in such dire straits. His favourite words are "food" and "thank you."
"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. She's fortunate to be fostered by a young couple in Wakefield. Thanks, Chris and Terri-Lynn! We don't know what we'd do without you!
"Ichabod" came to DunRoamin' from Upper Kent on October 16, 2012. He had been hanging around a home for about two days and was already neutered, so had belonged to someone at some point in his life.
Ichabod was skinny, had many fleas and had several open and infected sores on his paws. He was very quiet and unsure of himself when he first arrived, but now is quite vocal in demanding attention if a human walks by! He's a sweet little boy who's ready for a home now. He's fostered in Wakefield by some wonderful cat (and dog) people!
"Hawkins" came to us on October 26, 2012 from the Hartland area where she had been a stray that a man and his wife had been feeding, along with many more who had been dropped off near their property. Sadly, the wife had passed away and the husband had to move and was unable to take such a large number of cats with him. As there was no one else to care for them, they needed help.
Hawkins is a beautiful little girl. She was born about the end of April, 2012 and was healthy but not yet spayed. She was taken in and has shown herself to be exceedingly grateful. She loves people and lots of other cats. We hope she gets a home very soon.
"Omen" came to the patio of a home in Perth-Andover on the afternoon of October 31, 2012. His rescuers immediately brought him to DunRoamin' where he was assessed as follows: his left eye is missing, leaving an empty socket which is infected, he had fleas to which he was allergic, so had developed a skin rash (dermatitis), his abdomen was distended and he had poor body and muscle condition. His fur was reddish in colour on the ends, perhaps as a result of his lack of good nutrition. He's at least eight years old, and has been on his own for quite some time.
Omen was in pretty rough shape, but despite all that, he loves people. He head butts, purrs and rubs against the closest human, saying thanks for all the help. He had already been neutered, so he must have belonged to someone at some point in his life. He's a real sweetheart, and whoever welcomes him into their home will be well rewarded. We'd like to thank the couple who brought him to us - they live in the Mirimichi, but made sure that they brought him all the way to us to make sure he got the help he needed. We're all very grateful, Sarah and Darren. Thank you.
"Ciska" was found in Woodstock on November 1, 2012. She was born about the first of August, 2012, so she's just a baby. She's obviously had some trouble, as she had sustained damage to the nerves in her spinal column which have caused paralysis in her left front leg, her right front leg was badly broken and her lower lip had been torn from her jaw.
Despite all this, she purred happily to finally have the care and medical attention she needed. She ate despite her facial injury - that's how hungry she was. On November 3, 2012, she underwent surgery to have her left front leg amputated and a pin put in her right front leg. Her lip was re-attached also. She received 24/7 attention from her vet who even took her home at night to make sure she was okay. She's doing fine, and we're hoping for a particularly special home for her - she really deserves it after all she's been through. She's particularly playful and will stand on her haunches and play with string with her one front paw. She purrs constantly!
On January 15, 2013, Ciska got her final medical evaluation that tells us she's recovered perfectly! She's now ready for adoption, and whoever gets her gets a REAL prize! She's a very special little girl and deserves a special home.
"Abel," his brother Abner (see below) and sister Avis (already adopted) came to us on November 2, 2012 from Lakeville where they were strays who had no one to care for them. They were cold and had no prospects for a safe and warm winter.
Abel is a beautiful boy who was initially very scared, but he's gotten used to us, his nice warm bed and lots of food in his belly. It makes a difference.
"Abner," his brother Abel and sister Avis (already adopted) came to us on November 2, 2012 from Lakeville where they were strays who had no one to care for them. They were cold and had no prospects for a safe and warm winter.
Abner is a beautiful boy who was initially quite scared, but he's gotten used to us, his nice warm bed and lots of food in his belly. It makes a difference. He loves his brother Abel and they are never more than a few inches apart, especially when it's time for bed!
On November 2, 2012, "Upton," and his brothers Urban and Uzi were left at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic. They were found near a school in Woodstock and were brought to DunRoamin' to be assessed by vet staff at the Clinic under the guise of being sick. They had only a few fleas which were treated and paid for by DunRoamin'. These kittens are healthy, happy, playful and very social. The people who left them refused to return for them and had "far too much going on to be concerned . . ." about them, their status or welfare. They were born about September 15, 2012.
Upton is the cuddler of the trio and is always looking for a lap or some arms to jump into. He is very sure of himself and loves his foster brother - a 100 lb American bulldog. If no person is available, sleeping on the dog will do just fine!

They had only a few fleas which were treated and paid for by DunRoamin'. These kittens are healthy, happy, playful and very social. The people who picked them up refused to return for them and had "far too much going on to be concerned . . ." about them, their status or welfare.
Urban is the adventurer of the trio. He loves to see out trouble to keep himself entertained! A leftover Christmas bow, a random piece of string or a cat toy - it makes no difference to him! He loves to be held and likes older kids. He loves to torment other cats (and his foster brother dog), so a household with company that matches his outgoing personality would be wonderful!
"Phoebe" came to us on November 7, 2012 from Fielding where she was seen near a mail box all by herself. She's about five years old, was thin, starving, had deer ticks, a hernia, and very obviously needed help or she would not survive the coming cold weather.
She's very grateful to be safe, warm and have lots of food. She loves kids and other cats and is looking forward to having a permanent home for Christmas.
"Dawson" came to us on November 22, 2012 from Coldstream where he had been a stray. People there noticed that his tail was injured and that he appeared to be in pain, so they brought him for help. Dawson was born about May 15, 2012.
He was examined by a vet who determined that the injury was so severe that his tail had to be amputated. It may have been burned, and he was in much pain.
Dawson is feeling much better now. He was initially scared, but he feels much better now that he's warm, fed and pain-free. He will recover nicely from his surgery and is looking forward to a new home - maybe even for Christmas!
"Groves" came to us on November 27, 2012. She and her sister Foster needed help. Groves had a severe injury from her ankle to the hip of her right hind leg and was put on pain medication and antibiotics. She was born about June 1, 2012.
Groves is very timid. Her injuries have healed, but she still needs lots of attention so that she'll be more comfortable with people. Our student volunteers are making sure she gets lots of love and cuddling, and she'll be fine in no time. She hopes for a safe, warm home as soon as possible.
This is "Rosalee." She came to DunRoamin' on November 27, 2012, from Coldstream where she was a stray. She had received an injury to her tail and it had fallen off as a result. Not fun! She is scared, but she's slowly doing better with lots of TLC. She may be Dawson's mom. She was born about the end of November, 2009, so she's about two years old.
She's a little bit nervous, but once she gets to know you she's fine. She just needs a permanent safe, warm, loving environment and she'll give her thanks every day.
"Mikey" came to DunRoamin' on February 4, 2013 from Jacksonville where he was a stray who was found by a lady who took him in. However, when it was determined that he had medical issues, he was no longer wanted.
Mikey experienced sudden weight loss and was discovered to have a thyroid issue as well as being anemic. He was born somewhere around 2002 and had never been neutered. He is neutered now.
Mikey is a nice boy who deserves a chance at a warm, safe, loving home. He is on medication to control his thyroid and he's doing fine. He loves to follow people around to get the most attention from them that he possibly can!
"Olaf" was about three years old when he came to DunRoamin' on February 26, 2013 from Rowena, where he had been a sick little stray. He had a bad upper respiratory infection, earmites and fleas. Unfortunately, he had no one to care for him and it's very cold out there these days and nights. He was born about February, 2009.
Olaf was being treated for his problems. He's a sweetheart and is very grateful to be warm in his little red bed. He's currently living in a foster home with other cats and two dogs and he loves them all. He's a sweetheart with great big tomcat cheeks!
"Oleg" came to us on February 26, 2013 from Holmesville where he had been a stray. His rescuer and veterinary staff were appalled to discover that he had been shot in his front leg. The projectile had shattered the bones and his front right leg had to be amputated. He gets around very well now that he's safe and pain-free with animal lovers. He was born about the first of March, 2011. He's not that big of a dog fan!
We may never understand why a human would do this kind of thing to a tiny helpless animal. But we understand his gratitude to the people who rescued him, treated him, will care for him and finally the family who will take him home and love him.
"CeeCee" came to us on February 28, 2013 from Oakland. Her family was moving away and she wasn't going with them so euthanasia became a possibility. She's a beautiful girl, and we couldn't stand that thought, so we asked for her.
CeeCee is a little bit cranky right now, but we would too in these circumstances! She's learning quickly that she's right where she should be and is doing very well. She hopes for a home soon. She was born around the end of February, 1993.
"Friday" came to DunRoamin' in the late afternoon of March 22, 2013 from the Lower Kintore area. She had been found in a ditch by a person who wanted her to be shot. When they asked a man to shoot her, he declined and brought her for help.
Friday was born about March, 2004. She was thin, dehydrated, weak, tired, cold and hungry. There's no telling how long she'd been in such bad shape, but she was on her last legs and quite obviously her ninth life. She's fortunate to have been found by a caring person.
She is nothing but skin and bone covered with fur and she needs to learn to eat again. We'll keep you up to date on how she's doing.
"MacInnis" and her family came to us on March 28, 2013 from the Centreville area where they had been living since they were born about April 13, 2012. Her family could no longer keep them due to medical and financial reasons and there was potential for them to be released to try to survive on their own, or they could be shot. All were healthy but had not been spayed. They are now.
They're beautiful, loving cats who are very quiet and affectionate. They deserved neither fate. We desperately need foster homes for them as our kennels are full to capacity. If you can help, please call soon.

All were healthy but had not been spayed. They are now. McCauley is a sister to McKenna (see below) and they're both beautiful Torti cats.

McCartney" and his family came to us on March 28, 2013 from the Centreville area where they had been living since they were born about April 13, 2012. His family could no longer keep them due to medical and financial reasons and there was potential for them to be released to try to survive on their own, or they could be shot. All were healthy, but had not been spayed or neutered. They are now.
"Little Stinker" came to us on April 13, 2013 from Jacksonville where he was an injured stray who had been noted in the area. He's about two years old. He was live trapped to get him help. He had a badly-infected right front paw which required medical attention. He's already doing much better and is happy to be safe, warm and have a crew of minions who wait on his every desire.
Little Stinker is so named because he smelled like skunk, and his rescuer's truck now does the same. But that's all part of the experience and she's not upset at all. She's just glad he's safe.
On April 16, 2013, "Dazzler" came back to DunRoamin'. She had been adopted in February but was returned to our care as she was not comfortable with very young children. She's fine with older kids and adults, so she's hoping for a new home. She originally came to us from the Hartland area where she and her siblings were found locked in a shed.
Dazzler was born about May 25, 2011. She has beautiful eyes and a wonderful personality. She's been waiting a long time for that perfect home and we hope she can have it soon. She's okay here with her two- and four-legged friends, but it'd be SO nice to have her own home and family. Please stop in and meet her.
"River" came to us on April 17, 2013 from Bristol where he had experienced blockages in his urinary system. He was born about April, 2008.
River was near death. He was in shock and his heart and kidneys were failing. He was given intravenous fluids, catheters to clear the obstruction, pain medication and much care. He seems to be out of the woods and will soon be fine to go to a new home.
River is incredibly affectionate and gentle. He just wants to be with a human 24 hours a day and he talks constantly to find out where you are if you're not right beside him. He must eat a specific kind of food so that he'll never experience that problem again, but he's going to be just fine. If you meet him, you'll fall in love.
"Herman" came to DunRoamin' on May 3, 2013 from Bloomfield, NB where he was found in an abandoned barn. He had porcupine quills. At five weeks of age, he was way too young to care for himself and he needed help, so he came to us. He was hungry, dehydrated and had subcutaneous emphysema. He would most likely not have survived for long on his own. Herman was born about April 1, 2013.
He is currently in a foster home where he love his foster brothers and sisters. He loves to play tag with human toes and he loves eating! He is cuddly and likes to talk when no one is paying attention to him. He comes when called and loves to chase cloth mice. His claim to fame is the day he went swimming in the toilet! He's full of personality and loves everything and everyone!!
"Asparagus" was born on April 10, 2013. He came to us on May 6, 2013 with his mom (see above) who was injured when she was thrown against a wall. Asparagus is a beautiful little kitten who is anxious for a permanent home.

"Loki" came to us on April 25, 2013 from Plaster Rock where he had become very sick and his owners had not been able to care for him.
Loki was born about September 1, 2013 and has problems with his liver. He's doing very well right now and would like the opportunity to live in a foster home or a permanent home. He's a real sweetheart who adores people and is at his best when there's a human by his side.
"Cruella" is a one-year old little girl who was found in Hartland on May 9, 2013. She was emaciated, had fleas, earmites and ticks and was severely matted with burdocks. On top of all that, her right hind leg had an open fracture to her femur leaving it in at least five pieces. The wound was contaminated with gravel also. Cruella was born about the middle of May, 2012.
Due to the extent of her injury, Cruella's leg required amputation. Her fur was shaved to remove the burdocks and she is getting the best care available. She's a beautiful little girl who is grateful to be safe and free from pain. She's looking forward to a permanent and safe new home.
"Hartley" came to DunRoamin' on May 21, 2013 from the Hartley Settlement area where he had been found by a little girl in the yard where her father was mowing. There was no shelter and no mother. There had been no cats seen in the area at all and this little one was all alone. He's only about a month old.
Hartley was thin, cold, hungry and dehydrated. He was quickly cared for and is doing very well. He's in a foster home in West Florenceville where he is treated like a prince. He loves people, loves food and loves to cuddle. He hopes for a permanent home soon.
Hartley is in need of a foster home in a week or two while his current foster parents go away. If you're interested, please call 328-3380!
"Write-On" came to us on May 28, 2013 from the Bristol area where he had been struck by a car. He was about two years old and his injuries included a broken lower jaw and injured front leg. His original name was "Write-Off" - appropriate, because he was not in good shape. However, thanks to great veterinary skill and concern, his name is now "Write-On!" - VERY appropriate!
Write-On, despite his injuries, still purrs and eats. He's grateful for pain medication. On Wednesday, May 29, 2013, Write-On had surgery on his jaw. A wire was inserted to stabilize it and he'll be just fine after a few days of recovery and lots of soft canned food. He's a friendly and affectionate little boy who would love to have a safe home where he doesn't have to worry about being injured again.
"Darren" came to us from Dow Settlement on May 31, 2013. He was found in the backyard by some children and he needed help. He was very dehydrated, itchy and had earmites. His kidneys are asymmetrical so we need to find out just how much of a problem that may or may not be.
Darren is a sweetheart who is grateful to be safe and have minions at his beck and call at any time of the day or night. He's a VERY nice boy.
In the mid-afternoon of June 9, 2013, a man driving a very nice car dropped off a cloth bag with two young kittens in it on the steps of the Florenceville Vet Clinic in Riverbank. This action was caught on security cameras. When staff happened by later, they found one kitten already out of the bag. "Vice," the little black and white girl, had run back to be with her sister, "Versa," who couldn't get out of the bag. They were timid, very hungry and grateful for the care they received. They seem to really need to be together - have probably never been separated.
Vice and Versa were born about the first of April, 2013. They were healthy - just unwanted. That someone would drop them off to be someone else's responsibility without a backward glance . . . well . . . we're just glad there are good people in the world. So are Vice and Versa. They're ready for a real home now and they'd really like it if they could go together.
At 11:06 pm, Friday, June 14, 2013, "Clinger" arrived at DunRoamin'. He was deposited outside a door at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic by a young man who was a back-seat passenger in an SUV. The temperature was cold, the wind was blowing very strongly and it was pouring rain. Clinger spent more than 12 hours alone and shivering in his kennel before he was discovered.
Clinger is named because that's what he is - a clinger, because he just wants to be loved. When he's picked up he hangs on and absorbs the love and body heat! He's about two or three years old and has not yet been neutered. He was treated for fleas and worms. He is timid, but that's to be expected after spending that time in the cold. But he'll be fine now.
"Dundee" came to DunRoamin' on June 18, 2013 from Carlo where she had come to the home of senior citizens all on her own. She was cold and hungry and had no one to care for her. The lady of the house was taking her husband to Saint John for surgery the very next morning and would not return for some time, so Dundee had no place to go to be safe.
Dundee was born about the middle of May 2013. She had earmites and fleas but is otherwise healthy. She eats like a little pig and purrs like a lioness. She loves people and other cats. She'd like a foster home or a permanent home where she can grow up to share her love with a human and maybe even another feline or two!
