How do you adopt one of these beautiful cats?  Click here to find out!

"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! 
 
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.

"River" came to us from Bristol on April 17, 2013.  He was about five years old.  River had a urinary obstruction, was lethargic, in shock and near death.  His heart and kidneys were failing also.  His family could not care for him so he was surrendered to DunRoamin'.

River was nursed back to health and he has displayed his undying gratitude to the human race ever since.  He's a cuddle cat, a lover and the best friend anyone could ever wish for.

"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.  Griselda is in a foster home for now, but would love 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 in a foster home while she awaits a permanent home.

"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.

"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 while he awaits a permanent home.  Have a great time, Spock!

 

"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.

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!  She hopes for a permanent home.  She loves kids, dogs and other cats and is very playful, although timid at first.

"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, and that's all gone away now. He's a sweet little boy and he's perfectly healthy. He's hoping for a home where he can show his family what a great friend he can be and just how much love he has to give.

 

"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. On August 13, 2013 he went to a wonderful foster home with the best people ever!  He also has Dizzy as a foster sister, too!

"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 lived with several other cats with whom she got along just fine!  On August 13, 2013 she and her friend Barbarossa (see above) went to a foster home where they'll live the life of Riley while they await a permanent home.  Thanks, Seth and Sarah!!

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.

"Gail" and her four kittens Greer, Gaines, Gamble and Gardner (all whom have been adopted) 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 were spayed/neutered, 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 come a long way in showing that she'll easily be an affectionate companion.  She is fostered by some amazing supporters in West Florenceville.  Thank you so much, Rod and Judy!  It makes all the difference in the world to her!

"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 number of fleas and her left ear was badly infected. She was about two years old.

Jaime was a little timid, but snuggled in when she was picked up. She even purred now and then! Her ears were treated for the infection and she quickly became 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!  She eventually moved back to DunRoamin' where she awaits a permanent home.  She loves other cats and would like to go to a home with at least one other to keep her company.  It's always nice to have someone of your own species around!!

 

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

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

"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.

"Abel," his brother Abner 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. He's happy to be safe, loved, secure and with his brother Abner from whom he has never been apart.

"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 requires 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!

"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 was a little bit cranky right at first, but we would be 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, 2003, so she's about ten years old already.  She'd like to experience a warm and loving home, please . . ..

 

"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 permanent home where she can grow up to share her love with a human and maybe even another feline or two!  She's presently fostered in  Wicklow with one of our DunRoamin' student volunteers.

 

"Samuel" came to DunRoamin' on June 20, 2013 from Woodstock where he had been a stray who had come to the home of people who couldn't keep him.  Neighbours took the initiative to help him, but when he had three seizures in a week, they knew they couldn't provide him with the care he needed.  They generously donated money and food to help him out and will follow his progress on this website.

Sam was born about June 2007.  He was very skinny although he's eaten a lot of food and put on some weight since he came for help.  He is also very lethargic.  He was diagnosed as having epilepsy.  He's a really nice boy who can use some extra loving from a family who understands his needs.  He's currently doing perfectly well on his medication that prevents more seizures and is happy to take his medication with no complaints whatsoever.  He's very happy and affectionate and he's more than loving.  He likes to play with other cats and loves dogs too!  Since being on his medication he has not shown any symptoms of epilepsy at all, and it's been many months!  He's perfect!

"Jeeves" came to DunRoamin' on December 13, 2013 from a Centreville location where people routinely drop off cats.  Jeeves is about three years old and has in injured right front foot.  He was not yet neutered.

Jeeves was a little scared at first, but he's relieved to be warm and to have some food in his belly.  He was initially trusting, but still not quite sure what's going on.  Now he knows exactly how good he's got it!!  He purrs if you spend a few minutes rubbing his head or his chin.  He's become a very affectionate boy who loves attention.  His paw has healed very well and he's 100% ready for his own family!

"Frosty" came to us on December 19, 2013. She was found on the Hartland bridge all by herself and she needed help.  She is a beautiful buff-coloured torti estimated to be at least nine years old.

Frosty was very thin and dehydrated.  She has fleas.  Her right ear was swollen and sore and had a discharge due to frostbite.  Part of her ears fell off from the frostbite.  She was lame on her front left leg and both hind legs.  All the pads on her feet were blistered from frostbite.  In addition to the pain she would have endured from this, her wounds were full of road salt.

Thanks to the efforts of her vet and techs at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic, Frosty is feeling better already.  It's so hard to believe what these little ones are forced to go through.  We all thank the gentleman who rescued her.  Although she didn't get her wish for a home at Christmas time, she's still hoping to have one soon.  She's happy to sleep comfortably on her toasty warm Snuggle Safe.  Her best wish is for a home where she can spend time sleeping with, on or near a human.  She's currently fostered in Florenceville where she's enjoying the glory of wood heat!!

 

"Mrs Claws" came to DunRoamin' on the afternoon of the day before Christmas, 2013.  She had a collar embedded in her body under her right front leg.  She had obviously tried to get out of the collar but her leg had gotten caught.  We'll have more info for you soon.

For now, she's warm, safe, pain-free and eating like she hasn't had food in a very long time.  She's settled in, is no longer jumping at movements or sounds and has realized she's safe.   She now purrs and head butts her human slaves when they enter the room.  She also tells them if they've done something wrong!  You're going to be okay now, Mrs Claws.

 

"Tess" originally came to us on September 6, 2013 from Limestone, NB where she had been found.  She was born about the middle of April 2013 and had sustained too many injuries in her short life. 

The tip of Tess's tail was dead and infected and had to be amputated, leaving a one-inch stub.  She had a bad eye infection and she was dehydrated.  She also had a tumour growing in her ear and throat.  This was removed and tests proved it was not cancerous, but her other injuries were serious and required much skill by her vet at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  After this medical care, Tess decided she'd be fine!  On December 8, 2013, Tess was adopted by a lady in Woodstock, but her kitten antics proved too much for her so she came back to us to find a new on January 6, 2014.

Tess is a typical fun-loving and energetic kitten who goes straight out until she sleeps!  She'll outgrow this, but for now she's pure entertainment!  Who needs a TV??  She's currently fostered with Lacey, Kacey and Racey in Perth-Andover.

 
Bristle and Pounce

On the afternoon of January 9, 2014, two people attended DunRoamin' with four  of approximately 30 cats they had rescued from a bad situation near Perth-Andover.  They had found ways to feed, shelter, spay, neuter and find homes for all the others but circumstances prohibited them from completing their task of  rehoming these last four.

"Pounce," "Bristle," Blitz and Breeze are loving cats who have been through a lot.  Pounce and Breeze are males, Blitz and Bristle are females.  They were born about January 1, 2013.  They were all scared and confused, but are accepting of love, hugs and pats with the exception of Blitz who was more timid, but she's come along fine once she realized that she'll get the help she needs.  Bristle is easily the most outgoing of the group and she loves to be patted, picked up and cuddled. 

Breeze was the first of the siblings to get a home in August, 2014.  Blitz was adopted on January 13, 2015.  Pounce and Bristle are still waiting after more than a full year!  Please come meet them.

Look at me now!!! (19 Apr 14)

"Tommy" came to us on March 15, 2014 from the Centreville area.  He was a stray who had come to a home and he displayed signs of injury.  One ear was frostbitten, he had earmites, tapeworms, cat fight wounds all over him and as you can see by this photo he had a marked infection in both eyes.

Tommy was only about a year old, born around the middle of March 2013.  He's a very nice boy who is grateful for the food and warm bed.  He felt better quickly once the medications took effect.His eyes were really sore and he felt pretty blah, but that didn't last long.  Unfortunately he's been diagnosed with FIV**.  Please read about it below.  He's perfectly fine now that he has healed from all his wounds and infection.  He's a very lucky boy to have help.

!

Tommy is currently in a foster home with his best friend Sergio and he thanks this family for a home setting for Christmas.  It's his first!

** FIV is contagious to other cats through blood and saliva.  It is reasonably difficult to spread, however, and now believed to be mostly spread through deep bite wounds.  Obviously it would be ideal if FIV positive cats only lived with other FIV positive cats, but currently some of the large rescue centers in the US have been studying multi-cat households with FIV-positive cats living with FIV-negative cats and have so far found the risk to the non-FIV-cats to be very small, assuming that the cats are all spayed/neutered and used to living in groups (ie:  not as likely to fight).  

Please read about FIV here.

  

"Diane" came to us from Hartland on April 9, 2014 where she had been noticed wandering the streets all alone.  Her ear appeared injured and she was hungry and cold.  Diane was born about this time last year.  She was rescued by a lady from Holmesville who also made a generous monetary donation to help with her care.  Thank you!

Diane was pregnant, cold, hungry and had severe frostbite damage to her ears.  If you've ever had the experience of having cold ears in the winter months, you'd know this would be very painful.  The top part of her left ear came off when examined by a vet tech.  She was given all the care and medical attention she deserves and was also spayed.  She's very quiet, friendly and grateful to be warm and safe.  She's very loving and is familiar with a home, so she's had a family at some point. 

   

  
   Day 1                                Day 9

"Sergio" came to us from Perth-Andover on April 11, 2014.  He was an injured stray who had been observed in the area.  A lady live-trapped him and brought him for help.  He had an injury to his left ear which had become infected.  He also had earmites and fleas.  He was unneutered.  Sergio is FIV-positive.  Right now he's fostered in a home with his best friend Tommy who is also FIV-positive.  He's VERY happy in this home and it's his greatest wish that he can stay forever!

** FIV is contagious to other cats through blood and saliva.  It is reasonably difficult to spread, however, and now believed to be mostly spread through deep bite wounds.  Obviously it would be ideal if FIV positive cats only lived with other FIV positive cats, but currently some of the large rescue centers in the US have been studying multi-cat households with FIV-positive cats living with FIV-negative cats and have so far found the risk to the non-FIV-cats to be very small, assuming that the cats are all spayed/neutered and used to living in groups (ie:  not as likely to fight).  

Please read about FIV here.

  

"Lucille" and her kittens Meryl, Depp, Reynolds, Serena, Patrick and Swayze (see below) came to us on the evening of May 22, 2014 from the Perth-Andover area where they had been living.  They were being fed by a gentleman but there are so many cats in the area that he was unable to do more than that.  They had such problems as eye infections, fleas, sinusitis and diarrhea.  One of their siblings had already died and they needed help.  We thank the gentleman who called to get this assistance for them.

They were brought to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where their new vet evaluated and treated them until almost midnight before they were ready to be tucked into bed.  They had to be fed every few hours as most were not eating on their own.  They are all from three different litters.  Lucille is only about a year and a half old and has had at least two litters so far.  She is a very loving and caring mother to her babies, but she's definitely overwhelmed.  On her first day with us her exhaustion was so great that she fell asleep while sitting up.

All were treated for eye infections and prescribed medications to treat their problems.  They're warm, safe, fed and cared for now.  They're looking for a foster home or permanent homes.


"Meryl" came from Perth-Andover on the evening of May 22, 2014.  She was born about March 21, 2014 and was fed by a gentleman but she had developed eye infections as well as such things as earmites.  At nine weeks of age, she weighed 1.9 pounds. 

Meryl was timid and quiet at first, but happy to have a safe and warm bed as well as medication for her ailments.  With this care, she has quickly become healthy and is learning to trust people.  She is very good to the other five kittens who came from the same place with her and loves to play with them.  She has grown VERY attached to her canine foster sister Ellie and will sleep with her and even allow her to clean her ears!

 

"Depp" came from Perth-Andover on the evening of May 22, 2014. He was born about April 18, 2014 and was fed by a gentleman but he had developed eye infections as well as such things as earmites.  At five weeks of age, he weighed 1 pound.  He was timid and quiet, but happy to have a safe and warm bed as well as medication for his eye infection and fleas.  He has blossomed well and loves to play with his siblings.

Their former home has numerous cats in the area who are not spayed or neutered, which results in too many offspring who are unable to get the food, medical care or attention they need.

 

"Diega," and her siblings Reddington, Keen, Spader and Nina (see below) came to DunRoamin' on the morning of June 2, 2014 from Lansdowne where they had been found in a box on the side of the road.  They were born about April 28, 2014, only just a month old.  They had no mom and no human to care for them.

Other than some minor eye infections, they were healthy.  They require food, warmth and love, and they'll soon get lots of that!  Diega and her siblings are fostered by a wonderful woman in Woodstock until they find permanent homes. Thanks, Lyn!

"Nacho" came to us on June 16, 2014 from the Centreville area. He was a sibling of Maureen, Nancy and Taco (see above) who had been rescued from a location in which they were in constant danger from vehicles and predators, and several kittens had already died. His siblings had been previously rescued - he was the last to be found.

Nacho was born about May 7, 2014 and is a sweet little boy. He was scared at first and his tail was injured, but now he's fine.  His tail is several inches shorter than normal and has several twists and turns to it, but he's absolutely fine.  He loves people, loves his siblings and loves to run, play, roll, tumble and tear! He's grateful to have a new life and is awaiting his very own family.  He is exceptionally affectionate.

 

"Beasley" came to us on July 24, 2014 from Woodstock where she had come to a home two days previously but was sick.  Upon examination it was learned that she was emaciated, weak and had a severe urinary tract infection.

Beasley is being treated and is doing well.  She has become a very social little girl who is grateful for the help she has received.  She currently lives in a room with seven other cats and loves them all.  She's really hoping for her own family - maybe for Christmas?

 

"Matilda" came to us from the Juniper area on July 25, 2014 where she had been found on the road.  She was pregnant and had no one to care for her.  She's a very nice little girl who is only about two years old.

Matilda is quiet, very affectionate and loves people.  She wants only a family with whom to share her life and love.  She will be the perfect best friend for anyone who will be hers!  She is the first one to climb onto your lap and settle in for a good long purr.  She will make a fine companion for those cold winter nights!

   

"Eye-Agree" came to us on July 28, 2014 from Woodstock where she had been feeding her five kittens under a shed.  People noticed that she had a vision problem and undertook to help her.  They took in her five kittens and found homes for them.  She was born about the end of July, 2013.

Agree, however, required medical assistance.  Both her eyes are clouded and she may not see well at all.  She is on medication which will hopefully help clear up some portion of the scars on her eyes.  She has some sight, but would perhaps see as if through a cloud.  Fortunately, her ears and nose have helped her survive for as long as she has.  Now it's time for a nice, safe, warm, loving family home.  She can't wait.  She certainly deserves it.  She's a very loving and affectionate little girl whose time has come for the good life.

"Tebo" came to us on July 29, 2014 from Stickney where he had apparently been struck by a vehicle.  He had road rash and bruising on his abdomen and tail, a dislocated left hip and earmites.  Tebo was also quite overweight.  He needed much medical attention and his family was not able to undertake the financial commitment at this time.

Tebo has undergone surgeries to repair his abdomen and is on a strict diet.  He is a loving and affectionate orange tabby who would like to live with a family again.  Please come meet him.  He's very loving and playful.  And ORANGE!

 

"McGee," Mallard and Ziva, all little girls, were dropped off on the doorstep of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic in the wee hours of the morning of August 18, 2014, long before staff arrived for work.  They were born about June 15, 2014 and had bad fleas and earmites.  They were otherwise healthy, so had belonged to someone as they are familiar with people.

They were scared, of course, and we're sure they were missing their mom, as they cuddled close to each other for comfort.  They were just scared little babies who had no clue as to what had happened to them.

Their medical needs were addressed and they are now fine, beautiful and healthy little kittens.  Mallard and Ziva have both been adopted, leaving only McGee waiting for his turn at a permanent home.  He is currently fostered by a family in Bristol while he awaits a permanent family of his own.  Thanks, Shawn and Mitchell!

   

"Foxy" came to DunRoamin' from the Greenfield area on August 21, 2014.  She was born about January 20, 2014.  She had been an indoor cat, but had decided to check out the great outdoors for the very first time.  It is not safe out there, as she soon remembered when she was attacked by a wild animal.

Foxy sustained extremely serious injuries to her stomach area.  She had a fever, was dehydrated and had infected bite wounds on her abdomen resulting in an abdominal wall hernia.  Her only option for surgery was to become DunRoamin'.  We'll keep you up to date.

 

"Nifty" came to DunRoamin' on August 26, 2014 from Lakeville where he was a stray.  People there were unable to take him in.  He was emaciated, starving, dehydrated and had earmites and ticks, as did his three siblings (see below).  He and his siblings all became healthy, happy, playful little kittens who still dream of a forever home where they'll have a family of their very own.

"Nolan" came to DunRoamin' on August 26, 2014 from Lakeville where he, along with his brother and sister, was a stray.  People there were unable to take them in.  He was emaciated, starving, dehydrated and had earmites and ticks, as did his two siblings (see above and below).  We'll keep you up to date as we learn more.

 

"Marsden" came to DunRoamin' on August 27, 2014 from Bedell where he had been a stray who was hanging around a house for about a week.  People there saw that he needed medical help as he was very thin and looked hungry, but would not eat much at all when they set food out for him.

Marsden was examined by a vet who diagnosed him as being emaciated, severely matted, and he had severe earmites and ticks.  He also had a fractured upper canine tooth and marked periodontal disease which explained his problem with not eating - that must have hurt!  Marsden is now receiving the medical care he needs. 

On August 29, 2014, Marsden had all his teeth pulled and was shaved to remove the matted fur on his body.  He also had his ears cleaned.  He will need canned food for a couple of weeks and will require ear medication for about 10 days, but otherwise he is doing very well.  He's anxious to go to start his new life, but in the meantime, he's fostered by the most amazing of families who also are fostering several other cats and a family of puppies.  We can't thank you enough!

"Soprano" and her three sisters were found in a small cardboard box on DunRoamin's doorstep early on the morning of August 30, 2014.  They had external parasites and upper respiratory infection and are very tiny.  All their troubles were treated.

They were born about June 17, 2014.  They are very loving and full of playful energy.  They love to wrestle, run and play and are very affectionate!  Soprano is especially loving and likes to sit on your shoulder and purr.  She has a great singing voice!

"Bass" and her three sisters were found in a small cardboard box on DunRoamin's doorstep early on the morning of August 30, 2014.  They had external parasites and upper respiratory infection and are very tiny.  All their troubles were treated.

They were born about June 17, 2014.  They are very loving and full of playful energy.  They love to wrestle, run and play and are very affectionate!  He is a great purrer and is aptly named - she has a great singing voice!

"Noah" returned to DunRoamin' on September 25, 2014.  He originally came to us on January 24, 2014 from the Oakland area.  He had been urinating on articles in the home and they no longer wanted him.  He also was not interested in eating and was a very unhappy boy to the point that Soft Paws had to be applied to keep him from scratching people.

Noah was found to have a minor urinary tract infection which was treated quickly.  This brought his personality back to normal since he felt so much better so quickly.  He is about seven years old and is just missing that one little thing . . . family.  He was adopted in August 2014, but was returned as he was urinating inappropriately again.  A vet examination revealed that he had a bit of a urinary infection and mild dermatitis, but a few small pills took care of that in no time at all!  He is perfectly healthy again.  He's a real sweetheart who would love to live in a family situation.  Please come meet him.

   

"Henry" originally came to us on September 28, 2012 from Perth-Andover.  He had urinary issues and had blocked for the second time.  His family was unable to care for him.  Henry was put on a diet of Urinary S/O food which has completely cured him.  He was adopted in December 2012 and did well, but when his family acquired dogs who were jealous of him, he was returned to DunRoamin'. 

Henry has no issues at all and is an exceptionally beautiful boy.  He's very quiet and laid back - nothing fazes him.  He likes other cats, dogs (even if they don't like him) and he's happy just to be loved.  Henry was born about September, 2009.  He is fostered in Bath while he waits for that perfect family to recognize him as their next permanent family member.

"Coulson" came to us on October 23, 2014 from the Wakefield area.  She had shown up at a barn and she was in need of help.  She was born about March 20, 2014 and was emaciated, dehydrated, starving, exhausted and had earmites.  She also has a medial luxation of her patella (ie:  her kneecap is permanently dislocated).

Coulson was vaccinated, tested for FeLV and FIV and treated for her parasites.  She was also given fluids.  It took her a little time to recouperate, but she is now a beautiful and loving little girl.  Her fur is medium length and very soft.  She loves to be patted and brushed and she eagerly awaits the family who will invite her to join them permanently.

"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 have very generously taken on the task of their care and were diligent enough to notice a lump on her belly. She had an umbilical hernia which has since been repaired.  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.  Thanks, Shawn and Mitchell, for giving her a home environment.  It is most probably a very unique experience for her!

 

"Crabbe" came to us from Wicklow about 7 pm, November 1, 2014 where a lady had found him unconscious in her driveway.  It was feared that he would not survive.  He was brought to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where his vet noted that he was hypothermic (very cold), his heart rate was only 20 beats per minute (should have been at least 150), his blood sugar was 1.8 (should have been at least 6 or 7), his temperature was too low to register (any temperature that doesn't register or is less than 33*C is normally not consistent with life) and he had tapeworms and fleas.  He had no food in his stomach or intestines and his blood sugar was so low he couldn't move.  He was starving to death and most probably would not have lived another half hour.

His vet went to work and two and a half hours later he was warm, conscious and able to eat some food.  As of November 3, he's active and playful!  Crabbe would like to thank his vet and the lady who rescued him and made this second chance at life possible. He's certainly ready for a permanent home and is looking forward to the opportunity.

 

"Bono" came to us on November 4, 2014 from Red Bridge.  A young lady had come home to find her dogs barking at something in her back yard.  When she explored, she found Bono laying in the snow.  He did not appear outwardly injured, but he had slime on him and he could not walk properly when he tried to get up.  He was very cold and he obviously needed help. 

Bono was picked up by a DunRoamin' volunteer and brought to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where he was examined.  Bono had a fractured canine tooth, his temperature was only 32*C (less than 33*C is normally not consistent with life), pale gums, he was in shock, was markedly dehydrated, had air under his skin (subcutaneous emphysema), collapsed lungs and a fractured thorasic vertebra.  It is believed he was attacked and shaken by a dog.  He has the best of care.  As of November 16 he was doing very well!

As of January 25, 2015 he is doing GREAT!  Another month of limited exercise and he'll be good to go.  He is very happy to be safe and healthy.  He is a perfectly black cat with just a little white on his chest.  He's hoping for a home where he will be safe from all dangers and can watch TV with his humans!

"Sloane" and his sister Bacall (see below) came to DunRoamin' from the Grand Falls area on November 10, 2014 when their family was no longer able to care for them.  Sloane was born about 1998 and is a beautiful little boy.  He'd just like a nice warm home and loving family for the rest of his years.

Sloane had fleas and ear mites, moderate tartar on his teeth and gingivitis, all of which will be treated.  He's very quiet, attentive and loving.  He hopes to have a family to love very soon.  Both he and his sister would love to have a chair to nap on together while they watch TV with their family.  At 16 or 17 years of age, he's hoping it will happen soon.   A nice warm home with a human to love would be the dream of both Sloane and his sister Bacall - especially if they could go together.  They just need a bed, some food, some affection and an occasional hug or two!

"Bacall" and her brother Sloane (see above) came to us from the Grand Falls area on November 10, 2014.  Bacall was born about 1998 and had fleas and ear mites when she came.  She was mildly dehydrated and had severe stomatitis - a dental problem which made her uncomfortable and gradually would make it painful to attempt to eat.  On December 2, 2014, Bacall had all her teeth removed.  She is recovering very well and eating already - with no pain! 

Bacall is a very nice, quiet and gentle cat.  She loves her brother and would love to have a new home with him.  She headbutts him and cuddles with him and wants to be near him.  They are obviously very attached to each other.  They both hope for a new family very soon - maybe they'll get their wish for Christmas and be able to spend their remaining years together in a loving home.  They are absolutely no bother - they just want to be together and have a human to serve them!  They are loving and are definitely cuddlers..


"Finley" came to DunRoamin' on the cold and rainy evening of November 12, 2014.  A young lady had noticed her outside a church and saw that she wanted in out of the rain, but she was not allowed in.  When the lady left the church, she was still there and followed her to her car, meowing and asking for help.  She was wet and cold.

The area where Finley was found is known for hungry foxes and it was not safe for her to be on her own.  She hopes that now that people know she needs help, she will be able to find a permanent home where she'll be safe, warm and fed.  She is very affectionate and has striking golden eyes.  She has a nice loud purrer also!


"Clockwork," a little orange boy, came to us on November 12, 2014 from the Florenceville area where he was found under a vehicle.  He did not move at all when confronted with the noise of the vehicle, people or other animals.

Clock was brought for assistance where it was determined that he was about six years old, weighed only 4.8 pounds, was emaciated, dehydrated, had itchy ears, mites and a kidney infection.  He was born sometime in 2008.

Clock was in rough shape, but with a few medications and some nutrition it took him no time to become a handsome and attractive young cat.  Come meet him!  He is fostered in Bristol as of January 21, 2015 and is happy to live in a family setting until his own permanent family becomes available. He'd like to thank Shawn and Mitchell for their hospitality!

"Hayes" came to DunRoamin' from Hartford on November 14, 2014.  She was born about August 1, 2014.  Her mother had been struck and killed by a car recently and Hayes had been hanging around a garage for about a week but was scared and could not be caught.

Today her rescuer was able to catch her because she was not feeling well and was hungry.  She was diagnosed with an abscessed umbilical hernia and desperately needed medical assistance.  Normally the umbilical cord falls off, but on occasion it becomes infected, and Hayes has been dealing with this for her entire short life.

Her vet at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic gave her the medical care that she required.  She has received antibiotics and had her wound treated and she is now fine.  She is very affectionate and most definitely beautiful.  Photos do not do justice to her personality or her beauty!  She loves people and other cats and can't wait to have a home of her very own.

 

"Clooney" came to DunRoamin' on November 14, 2014 from Perth-Andover.  He has had several problems over the last couple of months including fleas, earmites, marked gingivitis and missing hair potentially from fighting to survive.  Clooney then had blood in his urine which may indicate kidney infection.  He needed help.

Clooney is a beautiful black little boy who was born about March 15, 2014.  He is currently wearing a t-shirt and eating a hypo-allergenic food which will hopefully ensure he does not scratch himself due to allergies.  He's hoping for a full recovery and that he may be fortunate enough to get a home where he will be loved and kept safe and healthy for the rest of his life.  His wardrobe is growing and he loves his DunRoamin' logo t-shirt and his "security" shirt!  His fur is black, but it is speckled with strikingly white hairs spread throughout giving him a "salt'n'peppa" look!  He is a tiny cat but is full grown.

 

"Maureen" returned to DunRoamin' on November 15, 2014 from Wakefield where she had been adopted on October 20, 2014.  Her family was very happy to have her and she made them love her drastically, but unfortunately, their German Shepherd did not share the love.  Although Maureen liked him, his prey drive was a bit too strong for Maureen to be safe, so, with heavy heart, her family had to give her up.

Maureen readily settled back in at DunRoamin' with her friend Taco and seven other kittens.  She's waiting for another chance at a loving home and family.  She was born on May 7, 2014.  Come meet her!

 

"Connery" came to us on the evening of November 23, 2014 from the Florenceville area where he was a stray who was being fed by a family who realized he had no one to care for him.  He was quite scared and potentially feral.  On this day the family observed that there was blood in the dish he was eating from and requested a live trap to catch him to help with his injury.  He was born about November 25, 2011.

Connery was live-trapped and delivered to DunRoamin'.  Upon assessment by a vet, it was determined that he was injury free - it was not his blood!  Connery is about a year old with long black fur.  He is a beautiful boy who was trying to accept the compassion of strangers.  As of January 29, 2015, he is much more comfortable with people.  He loves to have his chin rubbed and his back scratched and will reward you with a very loud and deep purr!

   

"Gwen" came to DunRoamin' on November 26, 2014 from Riverbank where she was noticed laying on the side of the road.  She did not attempt to run when approached, because she needed help.

Gwen was emaciated, exhausted, had fleas and earmites and was dehydrated.  Her fur was covered with oil/grease which would make it unable to keep her warm in the cold weather we've been having.  Although she appeared to be a kitten because of her size, she was born about May, 2012.  She has obviously had a very hard life and she deserves the best we can give her.

Unfortunately, Gwen was in very bad shape.  Her vet did everything possible for her, including introducing IV fluids, good meds and good nutrition - she received the best of care.  She is fortunate to be in a warm bed with food, love and compassion.  Get well soon, Gwen.  We will be sending positive thoughts your way. 

Update:  As of December 17, 2014, Gwen had gained a whole pound!  Way to go!!  As of January 25, 2015 she is almost back to her old self.  She looks great, loves people, loves to knead and purr and loves to be held.  Now if she could just get a loving home . . . she's been through a lot and deserves the best.

 

"Johnson" came to DunRoamin' on November 28, 2014 from Centreville.  Some children had gotten him from a place in Woodstock but soon learned he was sick.  He was brought to DunRoamin' to receive the medical care he required.

Johnson was dehydrated, underweight, emaciated and had diarrhea.  He was born about September 1, 2014 and is a beautiful little boy.  He doesn't feel very well right now, but will be fine in a very short time with a little care and attention.  He looks forward to gaining a family who will love him, cuddle him and let him sleep on their bed.

Update:  as of January 25, 2015, Johnson is a healthy, happy, playful, loving little boy!  He is hoping for a family with whom to share his joy for life and to express his gratitude and give back some love!

"Bertie" came to us from the Plaster Rock area on December 1, 2014.  She had peed inappropriately and was no longer wanted so was given to a shelter.  She was pregnant and scheduled for surgery, but when her surgery was begun it was obvious there were serious complications, so she became a ward of DunRoamin' so she could undergo the procedures required to save her. 

It was learned that while pregnant, she had been bitten by an animal who ripped a hole in her stomach, damaging her two fetuses.  They were unable to survive and caused injury to her.  Bertie's vet was able to undertake a surgery to save her and she is now fine.  She was born about December 1, 2012.

This photo was taken at about 8 pm, December 2, 2014.  She is alert, happy and is doing fine!  She's a beautiful, affectionate little girl who is grateful for the medical assistance.  She currently lives with five other cats and is in her glory!  Come meet her - she'd love to have her own family!

"Mighty" came to DunRoamin' on December 1, 2014 from the Woodstock area.  He was born about July 1, 2014.   A gentleman who was trying to care for several strays observed that he kept his head to one side, was not eating well and recently was unable to walk.  He had to be carried to the litter box.  He obviously needed help.

It was learned that Mighty had a polyp on the soft pallet in his mouth which would make it painful and difficult to eat.  He also had another in his right ear which resulted in poor balance and a head tilt.  The ear polyp had ruptured his eardrum which would be very painful for him.  He was also dehydrated and had fleas.

Mighty underwent surgery to remove both polyps.  He had a sore ear and mouth for awhile, but in about six weeks he was just fine - perfect again!  He's a sweet little boy.  On January 21, 2015 he went to be a foster kitty for a family in Bristol while he awaits adoption by that wonderful family who has yet to meet him!


"Fontaine" came to us on December 6, 2014 from the Oakland area where she and her friend Barrymore (see below) were part of a colony that was inspected by the NBSPCA.  Fontaine and her sister were both not doing so well, so they were brought for help.

Fontaine was born about December, 2011, was pregnant and had a really bad case of upper respiratory infection.  She was spayed and her needs were all addressed.  She is slightly timid, until you pat her!  Then she shows how much she likes it.

Her shyness has moved on and she is happy to live with a dozen other cats with whom she gets along royally.  She loves to play and is demanding of attention and affection.  She loves her sister, Barrymore.

 

"Barrymore" came to us on December 6, 2014 from the Oakland area where she and her friend Fontaine (see above) were part of a colony that was inspected by the NBSPCA.  Barrymore did not appear normal, so was brought for help.

Barrymore is only about a year old, born about December 1, 2013.  Her vet discovered that she had a polyp in her ear which caused her head tilt.  The polyp was removed and she is now fine.  She is quiet and unassuming, but if you pat her she's right there to get all she can!

"Rudolph" came to DunRoamin' on December 15, 2014 from Lower Brighton where he had been a stray.  The people who found him couldn't keep him because they were allergic.  He had been hanging around their home for about a month but had no one to provide him with food or assistance.

Rudolph was thin, dehydrated, and all four feet were covered with infected wounds.  He was born about December 15, 2013.  Rudolph is very friendly and happy that he is now safe.  Beats being out there in the cold all alone by a long shot!  He is currently living with five other cats and is happy to be warm, safe, fed and have some feline company.  And human company, too, of course!

"Alice" originally came to DunRooamin' from Centreville on November 20, 2013 when we received a call about a mother and kittens in a very cold location without adequate shelter.  She and her siblings were brought to DunRoamin' and Alice was adopted on October 13, 2014 to a home in Bath where their cat had gone missing.  Alice and their dog got along great, but when their cat eventually returned home she and Alice did not see eye to eye.  Alice came back to us. 

She is very cuddly, playful and happy.  She was born about July 20, 2013 and is anxiously hoping for a home where she can have her very own family again.  She would particularly like a dog of her own, and she normally loves other cats, too, as she grew up living with at least six others at any one time.  She has beautiful markings and purrs immediately when patted by a servant.

"Ezra" originally came to us on April 12, 2014 from Florenceville where he had a very serious urinary tract infection.  He had become blocked and required serious medical intervention in order to save him.  His owners were unable to undertake the expense so he became a ward of DunRoamin' and was treated.  He easily overcame his infection and now eats Urinary S/O food which will ensure he will never become blocked again.  He was adopted out on December 8, 2014 but did not get along with other pets in the home so he was returned to us on January 2.

Ezra is a very outgoing and loving cat.  He is a very happy and affectionate boy who loves people.  He hopes for a home very soon.

"Nudge" came to us on January 28, 2015 from Knowlesville where a person had seen him sitting on the road for three days.  He did not move when cars passed him.  They tried to help him, but he would run away.  When they told a friend about him, she immediately went to his location, found him, stayed and talked to him until he trusted her enough to come close enough to be picked up.  He was scared and shaking from the cold.  He was born about April 1, 2014 - just a baby.

Nudge was diagnosed with the following:  he was emaciated (starving), mildly dehydrated and had ear mites and fleas.  His worst problem, though, was the fact that his ears and all four paws were badly frostbitten.  His toe and foot pads were already sloughing off and he was in much pain, as you can imagine if you've ever had cold ears or fingers.  He is being given every ounce of care possible, including pain medication and laser treatment for the frostbite, which will get worse before it gets better.  It will be a couple of weeks before we'll know the extent of the damage to his paws.  His ears and paw pads may fall off but he is in a much better place than he was just a few hours ago.  He is warm, safe, has a full belly and is no longer feeling any pain.  Stay tuned - we'll keep you up to date.
