"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.  He was born about May, 2007.

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. He also had a urinary problem in which he was unable to pee.  He required surgery which required amputating his penis and has been eating Medi-Cal Urinary S/O food since then and, as with all our cats who are prescribed this food, he has never had a recurrence at all!  He is a perfectly happy, healthy and normal cat.

Chazzy shows his gratitude by purring, kneading and cuddling with any human who comes near 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 currently in a foster home awaiting that permanent family home he's been dreaming of for years.  He is 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 - even one with a dog!

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 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 was able to close the door behind them and they were caught and came to us for help.  Goochi has been waiting for her home for six years now.  She is not a cuddle cat and is not very comfortable around humans but is happy to have the company of other cats and to have a warm and safe home with someone to watch over her.

"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. He was eventually diagnosed with diabetes for which he receives medication and special diabetic food.  On November 14, 2011 he went to be fostered with a very nice lady in Woodstock where he has made himself right at home.  Have a great time, Spock!

"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 was an intact male who was born about June 15, 2010.

He was examined and diagnosed with earmites, marked gingivitis, ulcers and infection on his tongue (this would have made it very hard to eat).  He also had several bite wounds on his head and body and a bad wound on his left thigh.  He had most likely been attacked and bitten, perhaps by a dog, fox or coyote.

Barbarossa's injuries were treated, and he was 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!   Now he's back at DunRoamin' and we're hoping he and his best friend Dizzy can find a new home together very soon.  They are both on a diet of Medi-Cal Urinary S/O food.

"Gail" and her four kittens Greer, Gaines, Gamble and Gardner (all of 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 was born about September 15, 2011 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!

"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.

"Galloway" came to us on January 23, 2013 from Woodstock, NB where he was a stray. He had a lame right hind leg, was not neutered, was cold, hungry and dirty.  He was born about June 2007.

Despite all this, he was kneading and happy to have found refuge. He was found to have a bit of arthritis, but he's doing very well.  He wasn't very impressed with the first dog he met, but that may easily change.  He hasn't had a lot of exposure to dogs, but he'd be willing to try.  He is a sweet boy who was and would love to be again one of our Cats for Seniors cats - he loves to sit and cuddle and spend time with a human to whom he will totally dedicate himself.  He hopes for a new home very soon.

"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 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 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!  You can meet him by visiting DunRoamin' - he's our greeter in our front office!

"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 have been born sometime in 2004.

Frosty was very thin, dehydrated and she had fleas.  Her right ear was swollen and sore and had a discharge due to frostbite.  Part of her ears fell off from the frostbite after her arrival.  She was lame on her front left leg and both hind legs and 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 at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic, Frosty was feeling better quickly.  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 flesh under her right front leg.  She had obviously tried to get out of the collar but her leg had gotten caught.  This would have been very uncomfortable and painful for her, especially trying to survive in this cold winter weather on her own.  She was born about December 25, 2012.

She was quickly made warm, safe, pain-free and was eating like she hadn't had food in a very long time.  She settled in, was no longer jumping at movements or sounds and realized she was finally safe.   She purrs and head butts her human slaves when they enter the room.  She also tells them if they've done something wrong!  She can be a little cranky at times, but she gets along with the dozen or so cats she lives with, although she'd be just as happy to be your only cat!

On February 3, 2016, Mrs Claws was diagnosed with an intermittent heart arrhythmia.  This is unlikely to cause her to have any symptoms but it is possible that she could have heart/stroke-related signs later in life, although that could be considered a "worst-case scenario."  She's perfectly fine, happy and her attitude is very healthy, as is she!

Pounce

"Pounce," "Bristle," Blitz and Breeze came to us on January 9, 2014  from the Perth-Andover area and 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 became accepting of love, hugs and pats.  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 (black) and Bristle (tabby) are still waiting after more than two full years!  They are very attached to each other and they also love kittens.  If there are kittens in the room, they'll be cuddling with them.  Please come meet these two beautiful cats..

"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.

"Fontaine" came to us on December 6, 2014 from the Oakland area where she and her friend Barrymore (who has since been adopted) were part of a colony that was inspected by the NBSPCA.  Neither Fontaine nor her sister were doing well, so they were brought to us for help.

Fontaine was born about December, 2010, was pregnant and had a really bad case of upper respiratory infection.  She also had bad ear mites.  She was spayed and her medical needs were all addressed.  She was slightly timid, until you pat her!  Then she shows how much she likes it.

Fontaine's 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 likes lots of attention and affection.  She is best friends with Goochi with whom she loves to cuddle and sleep (although Goochi steals most of her bed!)  She enjoys spending time on her exercise wheel - you can see a video of it on DunRoamin's Facebook page!

"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 of his medical care so he became a ward of DunRoamin'.  He easily overcame his infection and now eats Medi-Cal Urinary S/O food which will ensure he will never become blocked again.  He was adopted on December 8, 2014 but did not get along with another pet in the home so he was returned to us on January 2, 2015.  He thought he would prefer to be an "only" cat in the household because he loves all the attention for himself, but he currently lives with five cats and is doing just fine!

Ezra is a very outgoing and loving boy who was born about October 15, 2012.  He is a very happy and affectionate cat who loves people and would like a permanent family of his very own.

"Ennis" became a ward of DunRoamin' in the late afternoon of March 11, 2015 when she was abandoned in a box outside the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic along with Solar (adopted) whom we suspected was her sister.  They were born about March 10, 2014.

Ennis had infection in both ears but was otherwise healthy.  She was scared, of course, but has done well.  She was uninterested in eating and had to be fed several times daily by syringe, but she has since decided that the food at DunRoamin' isn't so bad and is eating very well on her own.  She likes to snuggle with other cats for comfort and is currently living with a half dozen others.  She would like a quiet home where she would get lots of attention, preferably with another cat for company.  She is initially timid of humans, but is content to be in the same room and even accepts a pat or rub every once in awhile.  She will most probably not ever be a lap cat, but she is a beautiful girl who deserves a chance at a loving home and family.

"Artemus" came to us on April 22, 2015 from the NBSPCA, along with 14 other cats.  Artemus is a beautiful tabby boy who was born about August 22, 2013.  He had earmites and was very thin but was in otherwise good health.

Artemus was quite timid but has learned to trust.  He lived with four other cats whom he loved.  He is a beautiful boy who would like to live in a home with a family and at least one other cat for feline company.  He seems to like men more than women, but warms up to women as well.  Please come meet him.  He has a wonderful personality - he just needs someone to accept him and let him learn to trust on his own time.  He has come a very long way and will actually meet us at the door asking for a pat! He loves kittens and other cats for company.

On November 26, 2016, Artemus was invited to live as a foster kitty with a very nice couple who has two new DunRoamin' kittens.  He will be a new best friend for three children, but he's quite partial to the gentleman - we're quite sure they'll be bonding VERY quickly and strongly.  Thank you for fostering this beautiful boy!

"Benedict" came to DunRoamin' on July 29, 2015.  He had belonged to a family but when he was allowed to go out he became injured and they could not meet the financial obligations of his care.  Benedict was examined and found to have a high fever, he was dehydrated and had abrasions and lacerations on his right front leg. 

All Benedict's medical needs were addressed.  He is now neutered and vaccinated and he hopes for a loving home soon.  He is very loving and affectionate and loves to head butt and be cuddled.   He claimed the rocking chair in our general population room where he lounged daily while his human servants waited on his every want and need!  He is a beautiful boy - won't someone come take him home??  Recently he showed us that he was a bit uncomfortable and he was subsequently diagnosed with a bladder infection.  In addition, he had a small bladder stone.  Both these problems were treated with medication and Urinary S/O food and he was fine in no time.  He now eats Urinary S/O food as a standard to ensure he doesn't get a bladder infection again.  He is one of our most loving and affectionate boys and he hopes for a new home very soon.

"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 they were unable to stay in the home.  Write-On had originally been struck by a car and had sustained a broken lower jaw and injured front leg while living in the Bristol area, but had been all fixed up 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 rescued 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.

"Toonah" returned to DunRoamin' on September 5, 2015 from Woodstock where she had been part of a family since May 9, 2011 but they could no longer care for her so she came back to us.  Toonah is overweight and requires a diet and some exercise to get her back to a healthy weight.  She's working on that, and doing a good job!

Toonah was born about 2003 and is a quiet and independent individual.  She enjoys company, especially when she's eating.  She also likes to lie beside you on the couch and sometimes even enjoys a nice warm lap.  She's a very special little girl who doesn't require much - just food, water, a bed and someone to talk to.

On November 24, 2016, Toonah was diagnosed with a form of cancer.  She will stay with us and be even more spoiled than she is now.  She is a very special little girl who greets us each morning, follows us around and enjoys her special treats and warm, cozy bed.  She is very special to us.

"Chyler" and her sisters Bliss and Trickle all came to DunRoamin' on November 18, 2015 from Grand Falls, NB.  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.

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 have gone a long way and they now realize they are among friends.  As of January 6, 2016, they cuddle, purr and play with the best of them.  They particularly like cuddling with other cats.

"Dilbert" came to DunRoamin' on January 4, 2016 from Perth-Andover, NB, where he had been in a home for a couple of weeks, but became ill.  He was brought for help and the following was learned:  he was dehydrated, neurologic (had a problem with his nervous system), was unable to stand or walk and expressed pain each time he was touched on his head.

Dilbert is a sweet cat who has improved nicely.  He loves attention and loves people.  He meets people at the door of his kennel and rubs against them asking for lovin'.  He's doing very well and is ready for a permanent home.  His sweet personality has made him a favourite of our volunteers and staff and he hopes for a family very soon.

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

Jenkins was born about October 6, 2015 and enjoys tummy rubs, sitting on laps and head butts.  He is timid with new people or surroundings, but he has settled in well and is very curious and playful.  He hopes for a new home soon.

"Slater" came to DunRoamin' on March 1, 2016 from the Bristol area.  Although he had good body condition, he had a cauliflower left ear, abrasions on his head, dandruff, earmites and tapeworms.  He was prescribed medication, cleaned up, given a great diet and is now feeling so much better..

Slater was originally timid and very standoffish, but now he quickly became comfortable enough to meet us at his kennel door and he head butts and purrs with the best of them, now that he's feeling so much better.  He was born about March 1, 2014 and is rapidly displaying his ability to be a fine and loving young tomcat.  He is currently fostered with friends in Grand Falls, but he's very anxious to have a permanent home!!

His foster parents have so very generously offered to donate the adoption fee for Slater, so if he's the boy you're interested in, please let us know!  He's very anxious for his very own permanent home.

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

"Cyprus" came to DunRoamin' on April 17, 2016 from the Woodstock area where she was a stray with three little babies, Asia, Token and Knight, all of whom have been adopted.  Her babies, only about five weeks old, had been found all alone a few days previously but Cyprus could not be located.  After three days, she was found trapped in the ducts of a building and had apparently been there for at least three days without food or water.

Cyprus was cared for and was reunited with her babies.  She was timid and scared of us at first, but it's been all downhill from there!

Update:  as of June 3, 2016, Cyprus is a whole different kitty!  She loves to have her belly rubbed, purrs and cuddles just fine.  She can still be a little standoffish until she gets to know you, but she's doing very well.  She's hoping for a loving family soon.

"Lief" and his three siblings came to us from Upper Brighton on May 17, 2016 where they had been trying to survive at an abandoned house. They had no one to care for them.  Two of his siblings were very wild and preferred to live in a barn, so they were very fortunate to move to the Ark Animal Sanctuary where they found caring homes.  Lief's sister, Tesla (see below), is still with us and awaiting a home of her own.

Lief (pronounced "Life") was initially scared but is now a cuddle cat.  He is now only slightly hesitant to be picked up, but once he's in your arms, he hums and purrs and kneads, happy to be held and cuddled.  He is easily getting over his hesitation about new people and he loves his team of servants!  He was born about July 29, 2015.  He's hoping for a family to change his life just one more time!


Claire, Megan, Lief, Chelsea and Dayna - Lief's personal servants!

Week 14

"Tesla" came to DunRoamin' on May 17, 2016 from Upper Brighton where she had been hanging out at a home that had been abandoned.  She was brought for help and shortly after arriving gave birth to three little babies, Nexus, Reeve and Pax.  Tesla was born about October 15, 2013 and is a little timid - perhaps because she is in a strange place with her new babies.  She understands that she has lots of food, a warm bed and that she and her kittens are getting the best of care. 

Tesla is a beautiful long-haired calico.  We'll update as we learn more about her.  We already know she is a great mom and we're sure she'll be a great new friend for the lucky person who chooses her as their next family member.  As of August 10, 2016, much less little timid of people.  She'd like a quiet home with some humans of her very own to love.

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

"Reeve" came to DunRoamin' on May 19, 2016, when he was born to Tesla (see above).  What a wonderful place to be born!  He is getting all the love, care and nutrition he needs while he is fostered by a DunRoamin' friend and he is doing well!  He is a beautiful little black and white boy.  He and his siblings all had upper respiratory infection but are healthy once again with care from their vet and vet techs.

Reeve is a very handsome young kitten.  He looks forward to being old enough to have a permanent home!  He has long guard hairs in his coat and he's a playful little fella!

"Elisa" came to us on August 17, 2016 from Smithfield where she had been dropped at a home and was obviously injured.  Veterinary examination showed her to have a broken jaw.  She was emaciated, had a high temperature and had maggots in some open wound on her left hind leg.  Both front legs showed injury and she also knocked out a tooth.  She was most probably struck by a vehicle several days ago.  Elisa was born about February 17, 2015.

Elisa, named after the six-year old daughter of her saviour, is a sweet little girl who is happy to have her injuries treated, a warm bed, pain medications and all the food she is able to eat.  She will be under veterinary care until she's better.  We're hoping that will be very soon.

UPDATE:  As of October 18, 2016 Elisa is doing very well.  Her injuries have healed nicely and she eats up a storm.  Now that she is pain free and comfortable in her surroundings, she is cuddly and loving, obviously already familiar with humans. She is ready, willing and able to go to a permanent home and she can't wait.

"Dutch" and her three babies, Drift, Axis and Spinner, came to us on August 29, 2016 from Gordonsville where they had come to a home as strays.  The people in the home were unable to keep them.  Dutch was born about August 29, 2013.  Her babies were born about June 6, 2016.

Dutch was thin but healthy enough to feed her babies.  She had an old injury on her ear and her kittens all had ulcers on the roofs of their mouths, but they quickly got much better each day with medical intervention and care.  All of Drift's kittens now have homes and she is still waiting for her chance at love.  She is grateful to have friends, but she dreams of family.

"Asher" came to DunRoamin' on September 19, 2016 from Stickney.  He was a stray who had come to a home several days before needing medical assistance which they could not provide.  He was accepted by DunRoamin' and several tests were conducted to determine why he had pain and difficulty in his hind legs.  He had a very difficult time walking and would spend more time rolling around in his kennel than trying to stand.  These tests determined that he had laterally luxating patellas - his kneecaps dislocate on their own, or move out of their normal position. 

On October 27, 2016 Asher underwent surgery to correct this problem and within two days he was doing so well that he could walk again!!!  He is extremely affectionate and happy to have his knees fixed and lots of people to wait on him!  He happily walks upright and he's healing well with lots of care, attention and laser treatments to help him heal.  He will require a bit more medical care while his surgery heals but once that's done he's ready, willing and able to finally go to a great new home.

Asher is a very sweet boy.  He is very vocal and loves people.  He would like to be someone's cuddle cat, and he'd be EXCELLENT at it!!  He is very loving and affectionate and loves to head butt and play.  He loves attention.  He is feeling much better and would love to be someone's favourite house kitty.  Please come meet him and you'll fall in love.  There is absolutely no way you couldn't!!

Three young kittens came to us on the evening of September 27, 2016,  "Sugar," "Stevia" and "Splenda" had been found at Pizza Delight in Woodstock.  People had taken them in but were unwilling to keep or care for them.  There had originally been four, but one had gotten away.  No one was willing to help these three.  Even though it was late at night, a concerned DunRoamin' volunteer went to pick up the remaining three kittens, made sure they had food and were safe and warm overnight, then delivered them to veterinary care the next day.  This same person has set a live trap which she checks frequently in the hope of finding the fourth kitten - it's cold and lonely out there at night.  Thank you so much - these little ones are safe because of you.  All three were born about May 28, 2016.  They have been spayed, vaccinated, tested for FeLV and FIV and treated for all parasites.

UPDATE:  December 9, 2016 - Splenda is doing very well.  She gets along with her sisters and foster sisters and loves to play.  She is still a tiny bit shy, but she does like to be patted and have her ears scratched.  Stevia is very similar to Splenda in personality and nature.  Sugar, the little black girl, is very playful - her favourite toy is a furry mouse.  She is a bit shy with other cats but is becoming more and more familiar with her human who cares for her and her family.

   
Sugar, Stevia and Splenda, Day 4
Already they're becoming comfortable in their foster home!

"Escobar" came to DunRoamin' from the Hartland area on October 6, 2016.  He was living near an abandoned house and thought to be feral and sick, but other than some fractured teeth, he has a good body condition and is healthy.  He loves to be patted and have his back scratched at the base of his tail - elevator butt!!!  He was born about October 6, 2011.

Escobar has been neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and was treated for parasites.  He is a very nice boy who anxiously awaits a home where he will be safe, loved and cared for.  He has much to give in return.

"Guadalupe" came from St Joseph, NB on October 14, 2016 as a rescue from the SPCA.  She had a minor injury on her tail, foot and her nose, possibly consistent with being trapped and attempting to get herself free.  She was born about April 15, 2015.

Guadalupe was initially timid and scared, but now that she's had lots of love, attention, food and comfort, she thinks she might like people!  She is a beautiful orange tabby and she's very happy to think that one day very soon she may actually have a loving home.

Juan & Kalijah cuddle in their TV

"Juan" and his brother Pablo (see below) came to us on October 17, 2016 from the Hartland area where they were living under an abandoned house with no one to care for them.  They were born about May 18, 2016.  Juan is a silver tabby and he's quite timid and nervous right now, but is doing better than when he first arrived.  We're sure he'll be fine.

Juan currently lives with four other cats at DunRoamin' and he's getting used to the hustle, bustle and all the volunteers who treat him so well.  He's doing better every day!  He'd love to go to a safe, warm and loving home, especially if his brother Pablo got to go with him!  He loves him, as well as other cats, and loves to have someone to cuddle with.

"Pablo" and his brother Juan (see above) came to us on October 17, 2016 from the Hartland area where they were living under an abandoned house with no one to care for them.  They were born about May 18, 2016.  Pablo was initially timid, but once he was picked up, held and patted, he quickly settled in just fine, and he's doing even better as each day goes by. 

Pablo purrs, head butts and enjoys being cuddled and talked to.  He'd love to have a safe, warm and loving home, and he'd particularly love it if his brother Juan could go along with him!

"Colby" came to DunRoamin' on October 21, 2016 from the Beechwood area where he had been a stray for more than two years.  Approximately one month ago, people realized that he had what was described as a four-by-two-inch open wound on his neck.  As no one was willing or able to care for him, he was accepted by DunRoamin'.  Colby was born about October 1, 2014.

Colby was diagnosed with a 1.5-inch infected open wound on the right side of his neck.  His eyes were irritated, he had a discharge from his anus and tail and he had puncture marks on his scrotum.  He also had a large number of fleas - those can be very irritating and painful!

Colby underwent medical treatment to bring him back to optimal health.  He was on antibiotics for his infected neck injury and medications to help clear up his eye irritation.  He has been neutered and is perfectly healthy again.  He will be happy to go to a safe and loving home - he deserves it.  It's obviously been a hard go for him, and he's hoping for a loving family to change the rest of his entire life!

"Sinclair" came to us on October 26, 2016 from Bristol with his friends Drake and Fusion (see above and below) when his owner passed away and he had no one to care for him.  He was born about October 6, 2013.  Sinclair, who was already neutered, had fleas and was overweight.  He has received all his vaccines, his parasites have been treated and he has been placed on a special diet  of Royal Canin Calorie Control food to help him lose weight.

Sinclair was the most scared of his two friends, but he has come along so very well.  He greets us at the door and is turning into a real cuddle cat!  He and Fusion are best friends who are always side by side.  We hope they can find a loving home together - as far as we know, they've never been apart!

"Fusion" came to us on October 26, 2016 from Bristol with his friends Drake and Sinclair (see above) when his owner passed away and he had no one to care for him.  He was born about June 24, 2005.  He had fleas and was overweight.  He was already neutered.  He has been vaccinated, his parasites have been treated. 

As Fusion has a tendency to develop crystals in his urine, he eats a special diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food.  We have had many cats on this diet and it works perfectly - we've never had a problem once they're eating this food!

Fusion is somewhat timid, but is coming along fine.  Now that he's become familiar with all his friends and new home, we're happy to report that he's much more of a friendly cuddle cat.  He certainly does love his friend Sinclair!!

"Allegra" came to us on November 1, 2016 from the Hartland area.  She was a stray with an injured tail whom people had been feeding for about two months, but her tail was not healing.  She was born about June 1, 2016.

Allegra has a degloving injury (the skin has been torn off her tail) which was infected.  Due to the extent of the injury, Allegra's tail had to be amputated, so it's only about an inch long now, but she is perfectly fine!  She's quite a purrer, also.  She is now back to being the happy, healthy little girl she should be.  She's very happy to have a soft bed, a towel ring, lots of food and good friends to take good care of her.  Now, if she could just get a permanent and loving home . . .  Yeah.  That would change her entire world.

Peace!

"Peace" came to DunRoamin' on the evening of November 4, 2016, when she was live-trapped at an abandoned home in Hartland.  She is the fifth cat who was rescued from this area where a lady was feeding them but they had no real shelter or caretaker.  In addition, none were spayed or neutered, so this group of five would, without a doubt, turn into dozens very quickly, all of whom would have had no home.  Peace would like to thank this lady for looking out for them.  She'd also like to thank Dr Monteith for helping her on her time off - she's been examined, received parasite control, etc and will be spayed, fully vaccinated and tested for FIV and FeLV in the next few days.  She's gonna be fine!

Peace is so named because her white and grey fur form a peace sign on the back of her head.  She's scared right now, but she's safe, warm, has a full belly and is surrounded by friends.  We hope she'll be comfortable with us all very soon.  Stay tuned - we'll keep you up to date.

As of November 12, Peace purrs  and allows herself to be picked up and cuddled.  She's not 100% trusting yet, but she's well on her way!

Day 1

Look at me now!!

"Burnett" came to us on November 6, 2016 when she and her three kittens, Flynn, Kitler and Kylee (see below) were abandoned at the Carleton Co-Op Country Store in Florenceville, no doubt more unwanted victims of people who have not spayed or neutered their pets.  There used to be shelter and a cow barn where they might have been able to keep warm and find food, but those are long gone and the heavy traffic in the area is very dangerous for them.

Thankfully, the kind and supportive staff of the Country Store have offered to foster and care for these little ones.  Burnett was born about November 6, 2015, so already has a family at the age of only one year.  She was perfectly healthy and sociable, so both she and her kittens belonged to someone at some point in the very recent past.  It's sad that they were abandoned at such a tender age.  We thank Bill Groves and his staff at the Carleton Co-Op Country Store for stepping up, taking responsibility and giving these four the care they need and deserve.

Burnett is friendly, laid back, vaccinated, spayed and ready for a home.  Please come meet her.  You'll fall in love!

Spoken for!!

"Katy Purry" came to DunRoamin' on November 12, 2016 from the Jacksonville area where she had been a stray who had arrived at a home on Hallowe'en.  She was born about June 12, 2016, is a buff orange tabby and she is BEAUTIFUL!  Unfortunately, she had arrived with an injury to her left hind leg - a degloving injury, something similar to Allegra (see above) where the skin had been removed from her leg, leaving it with a strong requirement for medical intervention.   The intervention Katy Purry had received to date had not improved her situation and her rescuers were unable to continue with the financial or personal requirements, so Katy Purry came to us. 

She is very sweet, quiet and grateful to be the recipient of such concern by her rescuers, her new DunRoamin' friends and, of course, her new vet.  It was initially thought that she may require amputation of her leg, but her vet is very determined that she will not allow her to lose her leg.  Dr Monteith will undertake a procedure to help regrow the skin over her missing toes and perhaps transplant a pad from another foot to ensure she has a proper pad for walking.  This is just one option and Katy has been promised that she will be walking again and will not lose her leg - Katy's vet can do amazing things!!  Just ask Asher (see above)!!

In the meantime, Katy is very happy to be warm, safe and have a real chance at a proper life free from pain and a loving family.  She's loving, affectionate and loves to purr.  She's just a kitten and has her whole life to look forward to.  She's grateful to her DunRoamin' staff, volunteers, friends and especially to her vet. 

If you're able to help these little guys in any way, donations are gratefully accepted here.  Thank you.

"Lemur" came to DunRoamin' on November 15, 2016 when he was abandoned in Jacksonville by persons who were apparently unwilling to take responsibility for him.  He has a cauliflower ear and an upper respiratory infection.  He was born about November 15, 2011.

Lemur is the 200th stray we have accepted this year.  Our resources are maxed out, including space, volunteers, foster homes and funding.  If you're able to help these little guys in any way, donations are gratefully accepted here.

Please check out our Fostering, Volunteering and Upcoming Events pages.  We hope to make Christmas a very special time for these wonderful cats.

"Kendrick" came to us on November 15, 2016, from the Wicklow area where he was most likely struck by a car.  He was born about March 15, 2016.  He was very calm and friendly, no doubt very aware that at last he was getting some help for his painful injury.

Examination by his vet revealed that, along with a laceration on his foot and a hole in his groin, his hip was broken in two places.  This required surgery.  His femoral head was removed and he now has pins and wire in his hip to help stabilize the joint and help him get back to perfection!  Kendrick is working very hard to get better - he's doing very well and he's well on his way to that goal!  If you're interested in helping with his medical care, donations are gratefully accepted on-line here or at DunRoamin'.  Come meet him!

"Abner" was returned to DunRoamin' on November 17, 2016 from the home in Bath where he had been adopted previously.  His owner had developed a medical problem and was no longer able to keep him.  Abner had sustained a recent injury to his right eye and his third eyelid was swollen and inflamed.  It was determined that his injury had become infected and he has been treated and we're sure he'll be fine very soon.  He is currently under medical care to ensure he heals properly. 

Abner was born about April 1, 2012 and is a grey tabby with a most exceptionally loving personality.  He purrs, head butts and kneads constantly if a human is handy.  He loves to cuddle and be patted and he hopes for a loving family with whom he can spend Christmas.

If you're interested in helping us care for Abner and his sixty-plus friends we have taken in over the last two months, donations are gratefully accepted here.

"Somerset" came to DunRoamin' from the Hartland area on November 18, 2016.  It appears he may have been struck by a car previously.  He was hypothermic, dehydrated, thin, very anaemic, had a high heart rate, was emaciated and had parasites as well.  He was not in good shape.  Somerset was born about May 17, 2013.

Somerset is receiving the medical, social and loving attention that he deserves.  We will keep you up to date as we receive updates on his medical status.  Right now, he's grateful to be warm, fed and have servants while he heals.  Next step:  a loving home and family.  If you're able to help us help these little guys in any way, donations are gratefully accepted here.  We are grateful for our donors, volunteers and foster homes - please check out our pages.

"Emerson" came to DunRoamin' on December 16, 2016 from Woodstock.  He had been left to fend for himself when the people who had been caring for him for several years left the area.  The temperature was -35*C today including wind chill and the gentleman who brought him could not see him left out alone.  Neighbours in the area were not able to take him in and the shelters were all full.  So are we, but we couldn't see him left alone in these freezing temperatures - he wouldn't have lasted long, and he'd have had a very hard time of it.

Emerson was examined by a vet and he appears to be in decent shape.  He was born about December 16, 2011, so he's about five years old and was already neutered, so he belonged to someone at some time.  Donations to help provide for his vaccinations, FeLV test, FIV test, parasite control, food and litter are appreciated.   Please check out donation options here.

We're glad you are warm and safe, Emerson.  Thanks to the gentleman who made this possible and for the donation he left to help out.

"Elf" came to us on December 21, 2016 when he was found curled up under an overpass near Greenfield.  He was examined by our vet who determined that he was born about September 15, 2016.  She diagnosed Elf with "synechia", which can be the result of untreated ulcers.  His eyes have scars on the outside of each cornea - the outside edges have grey patches, meaning that although he has sight, he does not see well on his left and right periphery - he'd have to turn his head to see to the side.

Elf is a beautiful little boy.  He is cuddly, affectionate and playful.  He's obviously grateful to be warm and safe and of course, everyone loves to have lots of food in their belly.  He had earmites and received medication for all parasites and now he's just anxious to have a home and family!

"Nascat" came to DunRoamin' on January 2, 2016 from the NBSPCA in Arthurette.  He had been found on the side of the road and displayed injuries.  He was born about January 2, 2012.  He has an injury to his tail, most probably resulting from it being caught in something and jerked very hard.

We'll keep you up to date on this little guy as we learn more about him.

"Adrian" came to DunRoamin' on January 3, 2017 from the Beechwood area.  He had been a stray for a couple of months and although people were feeding him, no one could take him in.  He was brought to us after he sustained an injury to his left shoulder.  Now he'll be safe. He was born about January 3, 2014.

Adrian was diagnosed with fleas and earmites and was prescribed antibiotics for his injury which appears to be an open wound about 1" in diameter, quite probably the result of a bite.  We're not sure how he sustained it, but he will never need to worry about being cold or in danger again.  We'll keep you up to date on how he's doing.

All had earmites and fleas which were treated.  Whispurr had upper respiratory and is on medication to help her combat it.  She'll be fine very soon.

"Mensa" came to us on the evening on January 15, 2016, when she was found in the parking lot of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic in the cold and dark.  Fortunately, a staff member happened to be on site - otherwise she would have spent another night outdoors and the temperature had already dropped to -17*C and was getting colder.  That's way too cold for both man and beast! 

Mensa was hungry and shaking with cold.  Her paws were dirty and she had some matts in her fur, so she'd been uncared for recently.  She is a beautiful calico who is friendly and affectionate, but most obviously so grateful to have found someone who would care for her, give her food and a warm place to sleep.

We'll keep you up to date once she's been assessed by our vet to determine her health status. We thank her rescuer - if she hadn't noticed her, it would definitely have been another long, cold and hard night for her!

"Bowen" was returned to DunRoamin' on January 16, 2017 from Riverbank where he had lived since October 20, 2013.  He had developed crystals in his urine and his owner was unable to care for him.  He had originally come to DunRoamin' on August 10, 2013 when he was abandoned in a box outside the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic. 

Bowen is a beautiful long-haired boy who is very friendly and affectionate.  He is laid back, unassuming and quiet - he just likes his lovin'!  He is currently undergoing treatment and we're sure he'll be fine very soon.  He may need a special diet of Urinary S/O food like his new friends Benedict and Ezra, but that will probably be all it takes to make him 100% again.  We'll keep you up to date.
