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.  She was born about December 7, 2010.

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 below -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 have the benefit of plenty of 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 was able to close the door behind them and they came to us for help.  Goochi has been waiting for her home for eight years now.  She was not a cuddle cat and was not very comfortable around humans but was happy to have the company of other cats and to have a warm and safe home with someone to watch over her.  Gooch has a family with DunRoamin' - she's loved and will always be cared for.  During the past year or so, she has changed her mind about most humans and actually enjoys are company and a few head scratches!

On August 31, 2021, she went to be a foster kitty with a DunRoamin' friend who has known her for years and finally has the opportunity to give her a home for the time being.  Congratulations, Gooch!!  Have a great time!

"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 was also very lethargic and 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 greatly reduces the number of seizures and he 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!   He's perfect!  You can meet him by visiting DunRoamin' - he's our greeter in our front office!

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

Strauss has become a very affectionate and trusting little girl.  As of January 21, 2015, she is fostered with a family in Bristol.  Thanks, Shawn and Mitchell, for giving her a home environment.  It is most probably a very unique experience for her!  She is currently eating Urinary S/O food.

"Write-On" returned to DunRoamin' on August 25, 2015 from his home in Florenceville where he had lived since September 14, 2013.  Along with his friend Wimbledon (see below), he had been adopted by a wonderful family and loved by their two children.  Unfortunately, allergies developed and both cats were unable to stay in the home.  Write-On had originally been struck by a car while living in the Bristol area and had sustained a broken lower jaw and injured front leg, but had been all repaired by his friends at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic and he is 100% fine!

Write-On is a beautiful little boy who loves his friend Wimbledon.   It is hoped they can go back to a loving home together.  Write-On was born about May 28, 2011.  He is currently fostered in Upper Brighton with Wimbledon and he thanks Kate for her kindness.

"Wimbledon" returned to DunRoamin' on August 25, 2015, from his home in Florenceville where he had lived since September 14, 2013.  Along with his friend Write-On (see above), he had been adopted by a wonderful family and loved by their two children, but allergies had developed and they could no longer stay in the home. 

Wimbledon had originally come from Wicklow where his mom and one sibling had been killed by traffic.  He and two of his siblings were quickly rescued from the same fate and came to us.  He was born about June 10, 2013.  He hopes for a new family now, hopefully with his best friend Write-On.  He's currently fostered in Upper Brighton with Write-On and thanks Kate for her kindness.

"Trickle" and her sisters Chyler and Bliss all came to DunRoamin' on November 18, 2015 from Grand Falls.  The people who had them requested that they be euthanized because they were too wild.  These three little girls were only about three  and a half months old, born about August 1, 2015.   We couldn't allow that to happen to such tiny babies.

All three were in decent health, although they were slightly skinny and had fleas.  Their parasites were treated and they got lots of healthy food so they could put on some weight.  They were initially scared, but a little love and compassion went a long way and they soon realized they were among friends.  As of January 6, 2016, they cuddled, purred and played with the best of them!   They would like a quiet home where they can enjoy the company of someone who would be fine with cats who are not snuggle bugs, but still enjoy being in the room with people.  Trickle has been fostered with her friend Ennis in Currie Siding since February 5, 2017 and they're both grateful for a temporary home environment.  They're still waiting for that permanent amily!

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

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

** 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 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.

"Milton" came to us from the Woodstock area on July 15, 2017 where he had sustained a tail jerk injury as a result of having been struck by a vehicle.   As a result of this injury, a portion of his tail had to be removed.  He is able to pee and poop normally and shows no problems at all.  He had lost a pound in a week, but he's since gained it back and is perfectly healthy once again.

Milton is a very nice boy.  He will purr and even though he may have been uncomfortable at first, he was happy to receive pats and scratches from caregivers, knowing that he was being cared for.

Milton is currently in a foster home and is doing extremely well.  He is a real sweetheart.  Milton was born about August 4, 2012.

"Chip" returned to us on February 27, 2018.  He had originally come to DunRoamin' on June 29, 2012 from Bath, NB where he had come to a home displaying injuries.  He had ear mites and a wound on his feet and the back of his right front leg, all of which were treated by his new friends at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  He was adopted to a home on January 15, 2014 where he lived happily.  In February, 2018, Chip began to urinate inappropriately and was diagnosed with bladder stones.  He underwent surgery to remove them and was soon doing well.  Chip was born about July 1, 2009 and is a real sweetheart.  He loves to lay upside down and have his belly rubbed and he's a great purrer!

Chip underwent a second surgery to remove additional bladder stones and his penis had to be removed as a result of damage inflicted by the stones.  He is just fine now - just ask Chazzy (see the top of this page) - he had the same surgery years ago.  As a matter of fact, he tells us he's just perfect!!

Chip requires a prescription diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food to ensure he does not develop further problems, and we've had dozens of cats on this diet - there have been absolutely no problems or recurrences once they're on this diet!

Chip is a beautiful little boy who hopes to have the opportunity to live in a family situation again.  Please come meet him!

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

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

Abel is currently in a foster home where he will be loved, cuddled and doted upon until he is chosen for a permanent home!  He was born about April 1, 2012.  Please come meet him - you'll fall in love!

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

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

"Quarry" came to us on July 28, 2018 from Newbridge where she was found on the side of the road, possibly having been struck by a vehicle.  She had cuts and scratches on her face and fluids in her abdomen.  She has received all required medical care and is doing much better as of a month later.  She has been spayed and will be up to date on her vaccines as of mid-September 2018.  She was born about July 28, 2016.

Quarry is timid and will require a very quiet home.  She will most probably not be an affectionate cat but would appreciate a safe, warm and loving place to live.  She has been diagnosed with a condition called "pillow foot" which is an inflammation or swelling in the pads of her feet.  It is not a contagious condition, but it can reoccur or "flare up."  For this reason Quarry must be an indoor cat ONLY to ensure she does not injure her feet and allow the pillow foot to flare.  A mild form is not necessarily uncomfortable but should she be out on her own and the pad swells, splits open or develops ulcers or sores, she would require treatment.  Quarry would like to have a quiet, loving home where she can be cared for to ensure her feet will not flare up again.  She has ongoing medication, but she's fine!  As long as you are not expecting a cuddle cat, she would love to have a quiet home with another cat.  She will live happily and safely in your home but may not (or may - she may surprise us!) be a cat who will ever sit on your lap or cuddle, but she'll definitely be in the room to keep you company.

Look at me now!

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

Trez was adopted on December 15, 2018 to a home in Hartland, but it was reported that he was not happy in that home, so he returned to us.  He developed a bit of an upper respiratory infection (cold) which was quickly treated.  We're all miserable when we're sick, right?  He will probably require a diet of Royal Canin Hypo Allergenic food for life as he displays allergies.  He hopes for a chance at a loving home very soon.  He is very friendly, loving and affectionate.  Please come meet him.

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

Hatfield is a bit timid, but he's learned very quickly that he was safe and sound and that he has many servants who will ensure he has everything he'll need - he's doing very well. Please come meet him!

"Langford" came to DunRoamin' on March 8, 2019, from Woodstock where he had been a stray who had been hanging around for about six months and was being fed and sheltered during the recent cold winter months. On March 7, 2019, he had appeared with a large bleeding wound on the left side of his neck. Langford was born about March 8, 2017, so had apparently been surviving on his own for a while.

Langford was delivered immediately to his newest vet friend for the medical intervention he required. It was learned that Langford had sustained a previous wound on his neck which had abscessed and burst. Langford was prescribed antibiotics and other required medical care, which he quickly received. Langford is covered with numerous old fight wounds, indicating that he's had a rough life to date, but all that changed today. He is very loving and affectionate and is grateful for the warm bed and plentiful food. He's a social eater who prefers to have company when he eats, so when someone is with him, he eats up a storm of that ever-present banquet! He quickly put on some weight and is now doing fine. Langford tested positive for FIV. Please read about FIV and FeLV here.

Langford is a very attentive and smart little boy. He loves to run the length of the entire house and comes running when you call his name. He has a great sense of humour and will steal all the food he can get - he's got a very solid little body! If you're looking for a unique and interesting cat, he's definitely your boy!!

Frazzle
and
The Strays and Friends of DunRoamin'
would like to thank

Biggie

for volunteering as a blood donor.
This generous and selfless act has given Frazzle
a new chance at a healthy, safe and long life.
We are forever in your debt, Biggie.
Thank you

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

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

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

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

She (and we) would like to thank the Florencevile Veterinary Clinic for their kind and hard work to ensure this little one has a chance at the life she deserves.  We'll keep you up to date on her progress. 

UPDATE:  On May 31, 2019, we learned that Frazzle is improving nicely and is comfortable, happy, purring and content with her huge staff of human servants who wait on her hand and foot, day and night.  In June, she required a feeding tube to be inserted as she declined her meals. As of June 28th, she is eating on her own again and feeling better.  She'll keep the feeding tube for another week just in case she decides she doesn't want to eat again, but she's doing really well!  She hopes she can be well enough to go live with a family soon.

UPDATE 2:  On August 15, 2019, Frazzle was fortunate to go to a foster home where she is treated like a queen and is doing amazingly well!  We'd like to thank her vet tech foster mom - you're amazing!!  Frazzle is a very lucky girl!  She is hoping for a permanent home.

 

Donations in her honour are welcome and are very much appreciated.  Please click here:

"Bronte" came to us on June 6, 2019 from the Oakland area where she had been found to be in poor physical condition and obviously required help.  Bronte was born about December 8, 2018.  Her kittens, Rosamund, Rochester and Eyre (see below) also came with her.  We thank the person who discovered this colony all alone and brought them for help.

Bronte is a little nervous of dogs, so would prefer a home without dogs.  She is playful, loving and energetic.   She'd like to thank her foster families for all they've done for her.  She can't wait to go to a home!  As of October 7, 2019, she was fostered with a wonderful lady in Bath. Thank you!!

DunRoamin' accepted 27 sick/injured/abused/neglected strays during the month of May, 2019 and accepted an additional 60 strays between June 6 - 26, 2019 who will require much care.  Monetary, litter and food donations are very much appreciated so that we may continue to care for these beautiful strays. 

The Florenceville Veterinary Clinic will continue to make sure these cats are brought back to health.  DunRoamin' will continue to provide for medical care, make sure they are safe, loved and find the homes they deserve.  We are so very grateful to our supporters who enable us to help these beautiful cats and dogs.

"Trinity" came to us from Oakland on June 10, 2019 along with nine more cats, as well as 16 others who had arrived four days earlier, for a total of 26 from that location where they had been living in and around a home but had little care.  All had experienced exposure to fleas and ear mites and many had such bad upper respiratory infections that they required intensive medical care (please read about them above and below).

Trinity was born about June 10, 2017, so may be a sibling to Jubilee and Asterisk (already adopted).  She is a beautiful buff multi mother cat who was initially timid, but is doing well as she becomes accustomed to us.  She had been exposed to upper respiratory infection, fleas and ear mites, but has been treated for all.  She is also spayed, fully vaccinated and tested for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus and Feline Leukemia.  She's looking forward to a nice home where she'll be safe, warm, fed and loved.  She currently lives in a home with two dogs whom she does not mind at all.  She may have a tendency to run through open doors, but she always comes back in for food and company.  Her adoptive family should have double doors and be aware that she might try to get out, but as always, our cats must be indoor cats only where they are always safe.  Trinity is doing very well staying indoors, but may attempt a short escape on occasion.

Trinity is the 35th stray accepted by DunRoamin' so far in the month of June.

I'm interested.  How do I meet this cat?

DunRoamin' accepted 27 sick/injured/abused/neglected strays during the month of May, 2019 and accepted an additional 60 strays between June 6 - 26, 2019 who will require much care.  Monetary, litter and food donations are very much appreciated so that we may continue to care for these beautiful strays. 

The Florenceville Veterinary Clinic will continue to make sure these cats are brought back to health.  DunRoamin' will continue to provide for medical care, make sure they are safe, loved and find the homes they deserve.  We are so very grateful to our supporters who enable us to help these beautiful cats and dogs.


Look at me now!!

"Babbs" came to us on July 15, 2019 from the Florenceville area.  She had been peeing inappropriately and was no longer wanted, so her future became precarious.  She was surrendered to DunRoamin' and is a beautiful little girl who was born about September 9, 2014.  She required some dental work but was fine otherwise.

Babbs has a fantastic purrsonality.  She loves everyone - especially kids!  She is very affectionate and loving and wants only to be with humans who will love her back.  She requires daily medication which she accepts easily and willingly.  She is a truly beautiful being and we hope she gets the home she deserves very soon.  Her favourite time, other than cuddling with humans, is pushing pens off a desk and carrying them around!  If you need a pen, just find Babbs - she'll have one!

Babbs has recently been diagnosed with kidney failure, so she will spend her remaining time with us being spoiled rotten!  She is a sweet little girl who deserves all the love and attention she can get!  She is currently fostered with some very good friends in Lakeville where she is being spoiled rotten - she loves it!!

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

Fivel was accepted by DunRoamin' and is currently undergoing care at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where he'll get exactly what he needs.  He is a beautiful boy!  On August 6, 2019, he underwent surgery to remove several tiny stones stuck in his urethra.  This surgery, which included a perineal urethrostomy, allowed the stones to be removed/passed and he's doing better.  He should be fine in a couple of weeks and he looks forward to joining the other boys in the S/O room (they must all eat Royal Canin Urinary S/O food to ensure they do not form stones and block again).  We have had dozens of cats on this diet and have had not a single recurrence - as long as they eat Urinary S/O food, they're perfectly fine!

I'm interested.  How do I meet this cat?

Fivel is currently in our Cats For Seniors Program where he lives happily with his friends

"Gretchen" and her sister Rosalita arrived at DunRoamin' on August 2, 2019.  They had originally come from the Edmundston area where they had been found in an empty apartment.   Fortunately, they had no extreme health problems, but no one wanted them and they were scheduled for euthanasia. 

Gretchen was born about February 1, 2019, so was only a kitten.  She was initially timid, of course, after what she'd been through, but she's doing so much better now.  She is now spayed, fully vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites.  She is a beautiful little girl who dreams of a family to grow up in.

On October 2, 2019, Gretchen and her sister Rosalita were fostered by a very kind lady in Bath.  We are very grateful, as we were completely full at DunRoamin'.  We appreciate the help very much and Gretchen enjoys the love and attention of her foster family - both feline and human!!

Look at me now!!

"Atlas" came to DunRoamin' on November 27, 2019, from Beechwood. He was born about November 27, 2015, so was only about four years old. Atlas had been urinating inappropriately for several months and his family could no longer keep him, so he came to us for help.

Atlas was immediately assessed by his new vet friend. Among other things, he had enlarged lymph nodes and inflammation and was diagnosed with irritable bowel disorder. He received the best of care at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic and was soon doing well - he just needed a bit of medical assistance! He has had some issues trying to put on weight but he's now maintaining and may even decide to put on a few ounces. He is now fully vaccinated and tested negative for Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. Due to his irritable bowel disorder, Atlas requires a diet of Royal Canin Hypo Allergenic food - the same as his friend Trez. Trez and Atlas live together, eat the same Hypo Allergenic food and are the best of friends.

Atlas is very friendly, loving and affectionate. He is grateful for the care of his new vet friend who checks in on him when she visits, and he's always happy to see her. His greatest wish is for a home where he can be spoiled, even if he has to take a little medication daily - it's well worth it, and so is he!! We hope he can get a new home soon - he is a real sweetheart!

Look at me now!!

"Harold" came to DunRoamin' on March 13, 2020 from Perth-Andover, NB where he had been living under an apartment building and eating garbage.  No one could help him, so he came to us. Harold was born about March 13, 2015

Harold was very much underweight, had marked stomatitis (infected teeth) which means he required all his teeth to be removed, and had hair loss on his back end.  His ears show some "character" as well - they may have been injured by frostbite, scratching, or perhaps in a fight or two to remain alive..  This little boy needed help, and that is what he got. 

Harold very quickly has made himself a favourite.  He is affectionate, loving and will turn himself inside out for a cuddle. He's very grateful to be warm, safe, have good and frequent food and have loving caregivers.  He'd love to be an indoor cat so he can live safely and have his own family to love.  He was already neutered upon his arrival.  Harold tested negative for both Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus.  As you can see by his face, he LOVES chin rubs - he's missed out on so many, but that changed today!!

Harold has undergone dental surgery and is fully vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites.  He is one of the most affectionate cats we have known, so if you want a cuddly friend,  he's your boy! Harold requires a B-12 injection monthly, but it is an extremely small amount and he takes it with pleasure - no issues at all! He'd love to have a home and family of his own.   Please come meet him!

"Tulsa" came to DunRoamin' from Johnville on March 19, 2020. He had been dropped at a home in January and had been living in their bathroom since that time, but had been having watery diarrhea and needed medical attention which his rescuer could not provide. Tulsa was born about March 19, 2013, so was about eight years old when he came to us.

Examination by his new vet friend revealed that he had already been neutered, was in good body condition but had tartar and gum issues that required his teeth to be cleaned, as well as some extractions. Once that was completed, he felt much better! It didn't take him long to realize that he was warm, safe, fed and healthy with his new friends. He currently lives with eight other cats with whom he gets along very well. He is up to date on his vaccines and ready to go to a home - he can't wait to have his very own family! He is a talkative little boy who is the first to greet humans - he loves us! He is a healthy little boy who requires a B-12 injection monthly, but it is no big deal at all - he doesn't even notice! Please come meet him - we guarantee you'll fall in love!

"Furgie" came to us on July 14, 2020, from Fredericton where she had been adopted earlier, but had been peeing and pooping inappropriately, so came back to us.  Since her return, she has displayed no such behaviour, but has been diagnosed as being diabetic.  Furgie is now on 6 units of insulin twice daily, is eating a prescription diabetic diet and is doing very well indeed.  She is playful, happy, affectionate and loves the other cats with whom she resides. 

Furgie has become one of our greeters at DunRoamin' and takes her job very seriously, although she has so much less to do due to COVID-10 restrictions, but we're all hoping this will pass soon.  Furgie was born about January 31, 2012 and hopes for a retirement home where she can sleep happily on someone's lap - it's the first place she goes if we sit down even for a second!  If you're looking for an attentive, affectionate little cat, she's your girl, and she'll pay back your kindness in spades!!  She is a beautiful little girl who loves all people and doesn't mind the medication at all, as long as someone is paying attention to her!

Furgie is a beautiful calico who will give everything to her new family, and she definitely has a lot to give.

SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PETS!!

"Rocky" came to us on November 10, 2020 from Holmesville where he had been trying to survive on his own.  He tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) - please read about it here.  He is a nice boy who loves to have his ears scratched, although when he's had enough he'll let you know by whacking you with his paw - he's in charge, you know!  He currently lives with Mordecai and Randall (see above), both of whom tested positive for FIV and are hoping for a loving home together where they can live out the rest of their lives in bliss!

Rocky has come into his own very quickly.  He is friendly, affectionate and loves to have lots of pets and scratches.  If he tires of attention, he'll let us know with a quick swat, but then is back very quickly for more loving!  He is quite the boy!  As you can read below, FIV+ cats may live long and happy lives and may interact with other cats as long as they do not fight, and he's a lover, not a fighter!  Please come meet this gorgeous tuxedo cat!  He is SO hoping for a home where he can sleep on a bed, watch TV and help his person type on a computer!  He loves to hang out with people!

On January 22, 2021, Rocky was invited to be fostered by a very nice couple in Riceville while he awaits a permanent home.  Thanks to them for giving this beautiful little boy a home while he awaits a permanent abode!

** 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 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).  We currently have FIV+ cats living with FIV- cats in foster homes and have experienced no difficulty whatsoever.

Please read about FIV here.

In mid-December, 2020, DunRoamin' accepted an initial group of 22 cats and kittens from an out-of-control cat colony numbering 62 that was increasing in numbers.  All of these cats required significant medical attention.   These little fur balls ranged in age from approximately three months to six years, with the large majority being one year of age or younger.  Please read about them below.

All these cats required such things as pain medication, upper respiratory infection medication, dental surgeries, parasite control and antibiotics as well as a significant amount of canned and dry food.  Two beautiful little ones required an eye to be removed and several have scars on their eyes as a result of upper respiratory infection that was not treated - "Bough" (see below) is one of them.

Sadly, three of these little ones were unable to survive.  You may read about Candle, Wreath and Seal on our Pet Memorials Page.

We will be accepting additional cats from this colony during the second week of January 2021 and the first week of February 2021 who also require similar attention and medical care.  Donations to help with their recovery are gratefully accepted.

On January 14, 2020, DunRoamin' accepted a second group of cats and kittens who needed help - this one totaling 19, all of whom required medical attention.   These little fur balls ranged in age from approximately six months to five years.

All these cats required such things as pain medication, upper respiratory infection medication, dental surgeries, parasite control and antibiotics as well as basic requirements such as a significant amount of canned and dry food, spays/neuters, FIV and FeLV tests, full vaccines to protect them from disease, parasite control, etc.   Our goal is to change their lives immensely by finding them warm, loving and caring homes and families.

This brings DunRoamin's total to 26 strays accepted in the first 14 days of this new year of 2021, which we hope will be a significantly better year for all of us.  In these times when so many things have changed, these little ones still experience terrible things and still need help.  Donations are welcome to help make it better for these little fur balls - they deserve it too!

"Shalla" and "Meara" came to DunRoamin' on January 14, 2021 from a colony of 62 that was growing unchecked.  They appear to be siblings and are very much bonded with each other.  Shalla is the grey tabby and white little girl and appears relatively healthy with no major concerns.   Meara is the calico.  She had ear mites and required another checkup once she was more comfortable in her new environment just to ensure all was well, but she is now fine. 

These sisters were born about January 14, 2019, are obviously bonded and would like to be adopted together.  They are now spayed, fully vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and are anxious to start the next wonderful phase of their lives.

On January 30, 2021, Shalla and Meara went to stay with some very good supporters and lovers of all things cat so that they might become more relaxed and social - they were initially timid due to all these changes in their lives.  They are doing very well and are anxious to have permanent homes very soon.  Thanks to their foster parents for taking such good care of them and teaching the how wonderful some humans can be!

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

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

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

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

Lolli is a long-haired white beauty with one blue eye who was born about July 12, 2012.  She hopes to find the "purrfect" home for her soon.  So do we.

On February 4, 2021, DunRoamin' accepted a fourth group of cats - the final 21 strays from a colony that had totaled 62 (36 females and 26 males).  All had medical issues which required medical intervention such as eye removals, dental extractions, leg amputation, spays, neuters and much medication to combat flea allergy dermatitis, intestinal parasites and upper respiratory infection, all of which were running rampant in the colony.  All cats had parasites such as ear mites and fleas, several had luxating patellas (kneecaps that move in and out of place - a congenital defect), several were pregnant and almost all were underweight as they had not had enough food to sustain strong and healthy bodies.  Despite all medical intervention, one of this final group was unable to survive, bringing the total to three of 62 whom we were unable to save. 

All of these cats are related to each other and have never been without multiple cats with whom to sleep, cuddle, interact and play.  As of July 5, 2021, we have found loving homes for all but three of these 62 cats - Jayla, Hare and Chipmunk (see below). 

This was a huge undertaking for DunRoamin' and all assistance is appreciated.

Donations are gratefully accepted.

"Theodore" came to us on April 12, 2021 from a place where he was being fed but no one was able to provide the care that he required.  Theodore had fractured and missing teeth and a badly-infected soft tissue abrasion on his left front leg.  Theodore was born about April 12, 2018.

Theodore is a beautiful boy.  He was initially scared, but has since learned that he is among friends.  He loves  his food and loves to have his head scratched.  He is doing very well and is hoping for a new home - he looks forward to that very much.  He has had a very hard life to date, but he is anxious to finally have a family who will love and care for him the way he deserves.  It takes him a second to get used to new people, but that's understandable.  He can't wait for his very own family - he has a lot to give them!!

Look at me now!!

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

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

Diabetic cats usually require a diabetic diet and an insulin injection daily, but this is no big deal at all!  Needles are very small and easily given, and once on a diabetic diet, these little ones do very well - just ask Chiffon and Furgie - they know that to be very true!!  Gaia eats Fancy Feast canned food and Purina DM dry food - she loves them both, especially her canned food!  She is tiny right now but is putting on weight as she inhales her favourite wet food!

"Matcha" came to us along with ten other cats on June 1, 2021 from the Perth-Andover area.  He was born about June 1, 2020 and was lean, had ear mites and many scabs all over his body. 

Matcha took a bit of time to trust us, but he learned soon that we were his friends..  He lived with his friend Truffle (see our Adopted Cats page) who showed him that there are only good and caring people here and that he is safe forever now.  He is looking for a new home and is neutered, has had his full set of vaccines, FeLV/FIV tests and parasite control.   He has come a very long way in learning to trust humans, especially since he's learned how good some of them are at chin and head scratches!!  We think that Matcha will always take a bit of time to settle into a new environment, so we're hoping his potential family will have the patience he requires because he is well worth it!  He is a sweetheart!

He is a little timid, but it's the very first time he's been in such a very cool place!  He's looking forward to meeting his very own loving family while he's here!

"Gilmore" came to DunRoamin' on June 2, 2021 from Gregg Settlement where he was peeing inappropriately in the home.  Gilmore was assessed by his vet at Florenceville Veterinary Clinic and found to have cystitis for which he is now being treated. 

Gilmore is a sweet little boy.  He loves to have his ears scratched and loves attention.  He must eat Urinary S/O food only as he may have a tendency to block if he eats any other food.  This is a high-quality food that we have used for years and have had not even one single recurrence as long as they stay on this diet!  Gilmore is looking forward to meeting a family who will love him very soon!  Perhaps there is a family that is already feeding their cat Urinary S/O food - he'd love to join!!

On August 10, 2021, Gilmore went to be fostered with his friends Sue, Steve and Rocky, another DunRoamin' cat he met this past week.  Thank you for accepting him into your home while he awaits a permanent home.  You are wonderful!!

Look at me now! (Aug 2, 2021)

"Cecily" came to us on June 3, 2021 from the Hartland area where she had been part of a group of cats who were not in good shape.  Cecily was born about June 3, 2018 and may be related to Marla (see above) who had a similar medical problem - she had severe upper respiratory infection and an infected left eye.  Cecily required all her teeth to be removed as they were not in good shape at all - that must have been very painful.  

It was initially thought that her left eye was too badly damaged to save, but that is not the case.  She had surgery to help repair it and is doing well as of August 2, 2021, when she moved from veterinary care to us.  While in vet care, she had issues putting on weight so was fed through a tube to make sure she took in enough calories to help her grow.  She obviously did not have enough food from where she came, so we're  hoping to teach her that it's a good thing to have all the food she will ever need for the rest of her life. 

Cecily is a sweet little girl who just needs to feel safe and normal - she'll get there!  We'll teach her what a loving, caring family is so that she can choose her very own!  She loves attention and affection, but sometimes isn't sure of it.  She'll learn very quickly that she will always be safe and cared for.  Please come meet her.

"Loggins," his sister Messina (see below) and mom, Janis, came to us on August 9, 2021 from Centreville where Janis and her babies had no one to care for them after Messina became very ill. Loggins and Messina were born about July 22, 2021, so were only a couple of weeks old and not doing well.

All were soon placed under the care of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where they received the medical assistance they required. They were fostered by a nice lady in Florenceville while they awaited their vaccine protocol and spays/neuters to be completed. Because Loggins was timid compared to his sister Messina, we would like them to stay together - he did much better with his sister as company. On December 10, 2021, they went to spend some time with their friends at The Purrfect Cup Cat Cafe - it's wonderful there! Please drop in and have a great cup of coffee while you enjoy the company of some very nice cats!!

Eventually Loggins and Messina came back to DunRoamin' when they developed an upper respiratory infection. They currently have the run of our Nursery - the Rodney Chase Memorial Room. We hope you will come meet them - they are sweet, inquisitive, loving, playful and entertaining little kittens!

"Messina," and her brother Loggins (see above) came to us on August 9, 2021 from Centreville where they and their mom Janis had no one to care for them when Messina became ill. Upon her arrival, Messina was unresponsive and we feared the worst, but medical care at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic helped her and she was soon completely out of the woods - it can be a long trek.

All three were under the care of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where they received the medical assistance they required. As of September 14, 2021, Messina had gained a bit of weight due to her increased appetite. She was eating Kitten Milk Replacer and Hypo allergenic food from a syringe to ensure she got the nutrition she required. She sometimes required fluids and worked hard to get over a bit of upper respiratory infection. She is smaller than her brother, but is now very quickly catching up, thanks to the medical care she has received at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic. She was in the care of a veterinary technician to ensure she got the medical assistance she needed. Thanks, Derrah, for looking after her.

As of September 18, 2021, she was eating on her own and gaining some weight. She loves to play with toys and was even wrestling with her brother a bit! They were fostered by a nice lady in Florenceville while they awaited their vaccines and spay/neuter to be completed. Because Loggins was timid compared to his outgoing sister Messina, we would like them to stay together - he did much better with his sister as company. On December 10, 2021, they went to spend some time with their friends at The Purrfect Cup Cat Cafe - it's wonderful there! Please drop in and have a great cup of coffee while you enjoy the company of some very nice cats!!

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

Astrayea will meet with her vet for a recheck around the end of October to ensure all is going well.  Then, she'll be ready and waiting for that perfect home where she can live forever.  She is a beautiful little girl who is very quiet, loving and affectionate.  She will make a wonderful companion for some lucky family!

"Scrabble" came to us on September 23, 2021 from Florenceville-Bristol where she was a stray who had been hanging around outside a home.  She was taken in, but was peeing outside the box and apparently did not get along with their dog.  Scrabble was born about September 23, 2015 and is a sweet little girl.

Scrabble is doing well with us and shows no litter box problems.  She may not be the best cat for a family with young children as she can sometimes be a bit "cranky," but she is generally a loving and playful cat.  Scrabble tested positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia) so she will be kept segregated from other cats as this disease can potentially be spread by such things as mutual grooming, shared litter boxes or feeding dishes, etc.  There is no danger to other pets or humans.  Please read up on this by clicking the links or speaking with your veterinarian.

Scrabble currently lives with her friends, Lucia and Dazzler who is also FeLV+.  We hope that they might go to a home together so they will always have each other for company and play.

**  Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) is found in cats worldwide.  It may be spread by saliva, nasal secretions, urine, feces and milk from infected cats.  Cat-to-cat transfer of the virus may occur from a bite wound, during mutual grooming and (though rarely) through the shared use of litter boxes and feeding dishes.  Transfer may also take place from an infected mother cat to her kittens, either before they are born or while they are nursing.  Although there has long been a stigma associated with this virus, these cats can live long and happy lives as only cats or with other cats who have FeLV.

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

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

"Valor" came to DunRoamin' on November 8, 2021 from Teed's Mill. Born about November 9, 2016, Valor had tartar and tapeworms. He had no other option for life - DunRoamin' was his last resort.

Valor was a bit timid (who wouldn't be in a new situation?) but his new friend, Theodore (see above) has shown him that there are no worries at all anymore. His life has changed drastically, but definitely for the better.

Valor lives with several other cats and gets along fine with them all, but especially with Theodore. He follows him around and obviously idolizes him! We hope that these two little boys may be adopted together - they are obviously the best of friends.

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

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

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

"Lucia" came to us on November 16, 2021 from Teed's Mill where she had been a stray who was hanging around a home.  She was live trapped in order to ensure she was healthy, spayed and might live with her rescuers.  She tested positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia) so her rescuers were unwilling to keep her with their cats as FeLV may potentially be spread to other cats.  FeLV+ cats are able to live together with other FeLV+ cats since they already have FeLV and there is no risk to humans, other pets or other already-positive FeLV cats.

Lucia currently lives with Scrabble and Dazzler (see below) who are also FeLV+.  We hope that they might be adopted together to a home so that they may live together happily ever after. Two or three FeLV+ can live long happy lives in loving homes. It is our wish that these three beautiful little girls get to do just that, either individually or together - they deserver it!

"Dazzler" returned to DunRoamin' on November 18, 2021. She had originally come from the Hartland area where she and several siblings had been found locked in a shed during hot summer days. She had been adopted on April 16, 2013, but had been returned as she was stressed by the noise and activity of young children. On December 4, 2014, she was adopted by a couple from Stickney, but they eventually gave her up for reasons unknown.

Dazzler was born about May 25, 2011 and has beautiful blue eyes. She is completely white with a small patch of grey on her head, and she is gorgeous! Dazzler needed some dental work to remove three teeth and is now 100%. She is quiet and affectionate with people and dreams only of the home she deserves very soon. Her biggest dream is to spend the rest of her life on someone's lap! She has had a hard time in her life and this beautiful nine-year old deserves to spend the rest of her life loved as she should be - as we ALL should be! Please come meet her!

In March, 2022, Dazzler tested positive for FeLV - Feline Leukemia Virus. She requires no special food, care or medication. Please read below to learn about Feline Leukemia Virus or consult your veterinarian. We have many FeLV+ cats who have (and are) living long and happy lives as members of loving families. Dazzler is hoping to do that, too. Dazzler is currently living with her friends Scrabble and Lucia.

"Genesis," came to us from Florenceville on November 19, 2021. She had been allowed in a home occasionally, but had been allowed out frequently and soon returned with an injured leg. She required medical care, so was accepted by DunRoamin'.

Upon examination by her new vet, it was learned that she had a soft tissue injury on her front leg which was treated and she was soon doing well. She is now vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV, treated for parasites and is spayed. She is a beautiful little pewter-coloured girl who has personality to spare. She can be a little bossy at times with other cats, but when you're living with eight others, someone has to be in charge, and she's decided it's her!

Genesis is hoping for a home where she will be loved forever. She was born about November 23, 2020 and is completely up to date on her vaccines as of December, 2022. Please come meet her!

"Farnell" came to DunRoamin' on November 24, 2021 from Juniper where he had "blocked", and his owners were unable to undergo medical treatment for him. "Blocking" is when their bodies create crystals which eventually lump together and can block the urethra. Farnell requires a prescription diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food which will ensure he does not block again. We have had dozens (if not hundreds!) of cats on this diet and as long as they eat only this diet, there has never been a recurrence.

Farnell is a sweet boy who was born about August 6, 2020, and he loves people - a lot! He has a quiet and attentive personality and prefers to be wherever his favourite human is. He also loves to play and will make his new family smile every day. He's looking forward to meeting that family very soon.

"Garvin" returned to DunRoamin' on January 4, 2022. He had originally come to us on July 20, 2017 from the Woodstock area where he was found all by himself on the road. Garvin was adopted on November 30, 2017, but came back to us as he was matted and his owners could not care for him. Garvin was shaved and is currently on a diet as he weighed in at 19 pounds - much too much for this guy! He also required dental intervention which required some teeth to be extracted, and is happy to have that all over with! He was born about January 20, 2013.

Garvin is feeling much better and is eating a healthy and controlled diet and we hope he'll be back in shape in no time. He is currently experiencing a few issues which his vet and foster mother are working on, but we hope he'll be fine very soon.

Garvin loves people and is an extremely sweet boy. He loves to be patted, brushed and cuddled. His best wish is for a warm, safe and comfortable home where he will be loved forever. Stay tuned - we'll keep you up to date on this little guy!

"Cohen" came to us on January 19, 2022 from Tobique First Nations where he had been abandoned and living on his own for about two years. He was born about January 19, 2019.

Cohen required dental surgery to remove eight teeth and he was also diagnosed with entropion - a condition where surgery was required to fix his eyelids as his eyelashes were curved inward rather than outward. This allowed them to scrape on his eyes which caused much discomfort for this little boy. Thanks to the skills of his best vet friend at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic, he is now doing just fine.

He is still a little standoffish at first, but once he knows the person, he is happy to be a good friend. Cohen is neutered, tested for FIV and FeLV and is completely up to date on all vaccines until February 2023. He'd love to join a family - please come meet him!

"Jedi" came to us on January 27, 2022 from the Arthurette area where he had been abandoned by his owner. As the people who were caring for him did not have adequate space, he came to us for help.

Jedi was born about November 22, 2019. He was initially very timid, but is doing well now, allowing his caregivers to coax him onto their laps while he keeps them company on their lunch breaks. He Tested FIV+, but that's no big deal. While he is segregated to ensure there is no chance of transmission between him and other DunRoamin' cats, there is a very small chance that this can happen and he is grateful for the company of his new friend, Crombie. Jedi would like to live in a home where his human companions enjoy his company but are not necessarily put off by the fact that he is not extremely affectionate. He likes being in a room with people, but is not a lap cat - at least not yet! Jedi is looking forward to a home where he can live out the rest of his life and be loved and cared for - we all deserve that, don't we? Please come meet him.

**  Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) is found in cats worldwide.  It may be spread by saliva, nasal secretions, urine, feces and milk from infected cats.  Cat-to-cat transfer of the virus may occur from a bite wound, during mutual grooming and (though rarely) through the shared use of litter boxes and feeding dishes.  Transfer may also take place from an infected mother cat to her kittens, either before they are born or while they are nursing.  Although there has long been a stigma associated with this virus, these cats can live long and happy lives as only cats or with other cats who have FeLV.

"Buckley" came to DunRoamin' on February 22, 2022 from the Canterbury area where he was a stray who was hanging around for several months and was being fed by caring people in the area. However, they noticed that his leg was injured and he required medical care for which they could not provide. Buckley was considered to be a feral cat, so had to be live trapped.

Buckley was accepted by DunRoamin' and it was learned that his right hind leg had serious injury, perhaps as the result of having had it caught in a trap. His new vet friend determined that his leg required amputation which took place soon after. Buckley is recovering with us and we have found that he is not feral at all - perhaps he was just scared and painful. He now enjoys cuddling on laps and will even purr at times! Stay tuned - we'll let you know how he progresses.

On April 30, 2022 he went to spend some time with his friends at The Purrfect Cup and hopes that he meets his new family there!

"Catsanova" came to DunRoamin' on March 9, 2022 from Beechwood where he was a stray who was hanging around and had no one to provide him with shelter. The temperatures have been very cold, and it's not safe for such a little guy!

Catsanova is a handsome long-haired little boy who had several abrasion and was badly matted. When their fur is matted, it does not provide the normal amount of protection from the cold, and it's been very cold lately, so he was grateful to have a warm bed and lots of food - it was a very nice change for him!

Catsanova was examined by his new vet friend who determined that he had several abrasions, but no serious injuries. Catsanova was born about March 10, 2021 so is only about a year old. He loves people and is a very social little boy. Catsanova was shaved to remove all the mats in his fur, and he is now doing just fine - he feels SO much better. He is now neutered and tested for FIV and FeLV. He will be ready for a home in just a couple of weeks, once his vaccine protocol is complete. He is a talkative and friendly little guy who loves to be with people - he's very social!

On April 8, 2022, he and Emilio went to spend some time with their friends at The Purrfect Cup Cat Cafe - it's wonderful there! Please drop in and have a great cup of coffee while you enjoy the company of some very nice cats!!

Salsa

Boogaloo, Waltz, Disco and Jive (Baby Pictures)

Boogaloo Now!

Waltz Now!

Disco Now!

Jive Now!


"Salsa" came to DunRoamin' from Fielding on March 10, 2022, where she and her four kittens (Boogaloo, Waltz, Disco and Jive) had all been found living in a garbage bin. It, of course, had no insulation so provided very little shelter during these cold March days. Salsa was born about March 10, 2021.

Salsa was relatively healthy, although she needed some help to put on a little weight and to combat ear mites, gastro-intestinal parasites. She also appreciated a warm, soft bed and some good and plentiful food to help feed her little ones, as she was a bit underweight.

Salsa is a beautiful little girl who was initially a little bit timid, but she is doing so much better now. Her kittens have been weaned and she is starting to put on a little weight. She and her babies are fostered in a home with several other cats and two dogs with whom she gets along very well. Thanks, Marley!

On April 30, 2022 Salsa went to spend some time with her friends at The Purrfect Cup and hopes that she meets her new family there!

Boogaloo, Jive, Waltz and Disco went to The Purrfect Cup on May 14, 2022, to be fostered by their friends while they entertain their guests. They hope to find a family very soon!

"Andrea" came to DunRoamin' on March 25, 2022 from Bath where her owners were unable to keep her. She was born about December 26, 2011 and required some dental extractions. Other than that, she is good to go!

She will soon be up to date on her vaccines, is spayed and tested for FIV and FeLV. She is a very vocal lady and is very affectionate and is hoping for a nice retirement home where she can hang out with someone and keep them company.

"Wentworth" came to DunRoamin' on March 28, 2022 from the Woodstock area. He was born about March 31, 2019 and had fleas, healing wounds under his front legs and was covered in fleas. FIV and FeLV tests revealed that he was positive for Feline Leukemia. Please read about it here.

He is a beautiful, friendly little boy who would love to be adopted with another FeLV+ cat or two. He currently lives with Dazzler, Scrabble and Lucia who are also FeLV+. They are healthy and happy cats who dream of a home of their own.

"Harley" came to us on April 8, 2022 from the Florenceville area where he was found on a porch all alone. There were many dogs in the area, it was close to a road with lots of traffic, no one could care for him and he was not safe. Harley was born about December 7, 2021, so was only about four months old.

Harley had fleas, was emaciated, had waxy ears, moderate gingivitis and halitosis. All his medical issues were addressed, he was neutered, fully vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites.

Harley is a complete sweetheart. He loves to talk, he loves to cuddle, he loves to follow people around, he loves other cats - he just loves EVERYTHING! On May 14, 2021, he went to visit his friends at The Purrfect Cup in Two Nations Crossing, Fredericton, where he hopes to meet his forever family. Thanks to The Purrfect Cup for fostering him!

"Wonder" returned to DunRoamin' on April 13, 2022. She had been adopted in November of 2018, but had begun to urinate inappropriately. She is now under vet care to determine what her problem may be, and she is doing well. Wonder was born about July 1, 2018 and is a very sweet little girl.

We are working on getting her urinary issue under control and she'll be good to go very soon! She is a very sweet little girl who would love to be back in a nice family home again soon.

"Fluffle" and her babies Lapin, Wabbit, Hoppy, Hutch and Thumper came to us on April 14, 2022 from the Hainesville area. Fluffle had given birth to Lapin, Wabbit and Hoppy on the afternoon of April 13, 2022, but she was still in labour and in distress the next morning. No one was able to help Fluffle or her babies, so they came to us.

Sadly, Thumper, a fourth kitten, was deceased in her womb, so a Cesearian surgery was required. Little Hutch, the last one born, was rescusitated by their newest best vet friend at Florenceville Veterinary Clinic and is now doing well. All four kittens are putting on weight and their mom, Fluffle is doing so much better. All appear to be male kittens except Lapin.

Stay tuned - we will keep you up to date as these little ones grow big, strong and healthy. After such a rough start, they deserve the best of care, love and family. Donations to help with their care are appreciated.

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

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

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

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

Crombie is a very sweet boy. He is beyond grateful to be well on his way to being pain-free forever. He is cuddly, affectionate and OH SO GRATEFUL! He will be ready for a home very soon.

"Becky" came to us on April 27, 2022 from the Oakland area where she had been found on the side of the road meowing loudly. No family could be located. Her rescuers were allergic and could not keep her, so she came to us for help.

Becky was born about April 27, 2021, so was only about one year old - way too young to be on her own. Her rescuers had been giving her food, which she gratefully wolfed down. Becky will be spayed on May 10, fully vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and will be ready to go around the third week of May. She can't wait. She is a beautiful little girl who is looking forward to a safe life with a family who loves her. Please come meet her.

"Barnaby" came to us on May 2, 2022 from Woodstock where he was a stray who had been hanging around for several months. No one could take him in, and it was soon noticed that he had a large, open wound on his neck under his chin.

Barnaby was examined by his new vet friend at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where he was determined to be born about May 2, 2021. He is a beautiful little boy who is grateful to have a warm, soft bed, lots of available food and new friends to care for him. He will be neutered, fully vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites. He will be anxious for a new home in the next couple of weeks - he can't wait to start a new life!

"Yvette" came to us on May 3, 2022 from Oakland where she had been an indoor/outdoor cat who was abandoned when her family moved away. No one was willing to help her, so she came to us.

Yvette was born about September 7, 2017. She was already spayed, but was not vaccinated. She will meet her new vet and get a full physical examination and start her intake routine of vaccines, parasite control and FIV/FeLV testing. Stay tuned - we’ll keep you up to date!

"Elroy" came to us on May 4, 2022 from the Springfield area where he had no one to care for him. He had been hanging around for a couple of months and had kept coming back with more and more cuts, scrapes and scratches – typical of unneutered males who are trying to survive on their own.

Elroy will be examined by his new vet friend on May 5, 2022 and we will keep you up to date as we learn more about his medical condition. We know right now, for sure, that he is a very sweet boy who seems to love people and is grateful for his warm bed, human attention and lots of food. Stay tuned!
