How do you adopt one of these beautiful cats?  Click here to find out!
"Lolita" is about two years old, and originally came to us from the Woodstock area on October 5, 2009.  She had been struck by a car and was then surrendered to a local shelter because her owners could not afford the costs of her surgeries.  She had sustained several facial and jaw fractures as a result of the incident.  Lolita underwent surgeries and had her lower jaw wired together.  She was on pain medication and antibiotics for a while, but quickly recovered very well. 

Lolita is a beautiful long-haired white lady with double paws on the front.  She'd like to live in a home without other cats or children, 'cause she seems to like adults best and prefers not to share the attention she loves so much. She loves water, and will sit in the sink until someone turns on the faucet so she can have a bath!  She's a playful cat when she so chooses, and would make a very good friend and companion for anyone who loves cats, especially long-haired white ones with double paws!
 
"Chazzy" came to DunRoamin' on October 25, 2010, after being found on the side of the road in the pouring rain near Tim Horton's on Beardsley Road near Woodstock, NB two days earlier.  He appeared to have an injured leg, as he would not let his rescuers touch it.  He was very hungry, cold, wet and exhausted.  He was taken in and cared for until he could be brought for medical help.

Chazzy was diagnosed with an extreme number of fleas.  He had never been neutered, had worms, bloody diarrhea and an ulcerated tongue.  This would have made it very difficult and painful to eat, thus explaining his lack of weight.

Chazzy was treated for all his medical problems.  He shows his gratitude by purring, kneading and cuddling with any human who gets close to him.  He lived with 20 other cats, and he got along perfectly well with every single one.  He plays like a little kitten!  He's a beautiful boy who would really like to have a warm, safe home forever.  His ramblin' days are done!  It's no fun!!  And by the way, he'd be pleased to go to any home - he's even warming up to dogs! 
On January 28, 2011, "Goochi," just 10 weeks old, came to DunRoamin' from the Bristol area where she was one of three kittens who were feral, cold, hungry and very scared.  They had a terrible amount of parasites, including fleas, ear mites and worms.  All these troubles were quickly addressed. 

Goochi was rescued by a senior citizen who had seen her, her mother and two sisters in the snow outside her apartment.   The temperatures had been colder than -25*C and when you add in the wind chill, few creatures, if any, could survive outdoors for long on their own in that kind of cold.

Even with the terribly cold temperatures, when the lady saw them in her back yard, she left her patio door open so they could come in where it was warm and get some food.  Even as feral as they were, they recognized compassion and came slowly inside.  When the senior citizen would get up to close the door, they'd run back outside.  She finally trapped them in her apartment, and they came to us for help.  Goochi is currently waiting for her permanent home while enjoying the comforts of a foster home in Brighton.

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

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

 

"Siren" came to us on May 11, 2011 from Ashland.  Her owners didn't like her behaviour so she was unwanted.  Siren came to us and has been with us since.  She has a very unique personality.  She LOVES people and craves attention.  She is very loving and affectionate.  She currently lives with 14 other cats and prefers to be the boss of them all.  She lets them know when she wants her space by hissing at them but has never been a threat at all.  She just wants to be the ruler of the room.

Siren particularly loves men, but whatever your gender she is the first one to jump on your lap and demand attention and affection.  She is a beautiful bright white cat who simply wants her very own human upon whom she can dote and provide her love and attention as she wishes.  She is friendly, loving and very attentive and affectionate.  She would do okay with other cats, but would do best as an only cat - she prefers to get ALL the attention she possibly can!  Please come meet her - you'll fall in love with her very quickly!!

"Cancel" came to us on May 30, 2011, one of three mother cats who had been living with their collective 11 kittens in Mainstream under the unoccupied home of a man who was undergoing cancer treatment in Saint John. They had no one to care for them.  They were all healthy, and the moms were beautiful, loving and affectionate.  Had they not been accepted by DunRoamin', chances are some of them would have died, some would spend their days fighting to stay alive, and all would have continued to contribute to the growing number of unwanted strays.  Cancel, about a year and a half old, and her daughter Cate and sons Canyon, Clapton, and Carey, who were born around the first of May, 2011, were fostered in Jacksonville. Sadly, Carey did not survive, but Cate found a permanent home. Clapton and Canyon were adopted to a wonderful home in Centreville. Cancel is still hoping for a loving home for herself.
"Griselda" came from Woodstock where she and some kittens were trying to survive in a trailer park.  They were not doing so well, because several had already died.  Griselda came to us on August 15, 2011.  She is relatively healthy and is a friendly and loving cat who is at least 10 years old.  She wants only a safe home where she can give everything she has to a family.  Griselda is in a foster home for now, but would love a permanent one, please. She's become very outgoing and affectionate, now that she's confident she's safe and will always have food. She's currently in a foster home while she awaits a permanent home.

"Moe" and his siblings Larri, Curly and Fritz were found on August 22, 2011 in Woodstock by the Town Police who were patrolling near JR's on Lower Main Street. They were full of fleas, ear mites and worms - obviously very uncomfortable. They had no mother to care for them, and it's been very damp and cold lately.

Moe and his family are fostered by a nice lady from Woodstock, where they've learned to be social and showing their gratitude daily. They were born about June 1, 2011, and are happy to think that they might soon have a family to love them.

"Curly" and his siblings Larri, Moe, and Fritz were found on August 22, 2011 in Woodstock by the Town Police who were patrolling near JR's on Lower Main Street. They were full of fleas, ear mites and worms - obviously very uncomfortable. They had no mother to care for them, and it's been very damp and cold lately. Curly has beautiful blue eye, and he's old enough that they will not change colour. He's gorgeous!

Curly and his family are fostered by a nice lady from Woodstock, where they've learned to be social and show their gratitude daily. They were born about June 1, 2011, and are happy to think that they might soon have a family to love them.

"Tracey" came to us on August 22, 2011 from Tracey Mills where she had been found wandering all alone. She was wearing a white flea collar that was very tight around her neck, she was covered with an excessive amount of fleas and was very thin, as though she hadn't eaten well in a very long time. She was already spayed, so that and the collar lead to the conclusion that she belongs in a home with her family. Her rescuer tried to locate her family, but had absolutely no luck.

Tracey is a very loving cat. She is not at all shy and has obviously been part of a loving household. She has been treated for her fleas and has been eating up a storm since she's been here. She's probably a little less than two years old. If you know anyone who's searching for her, please let them know she's safe and is waiting for her family to come claim her. Otherwise, she'd love to go home with a new family.

"Adidas" came to us on August 31, 2011 from Woodstock where she and her five kittens had fleas so badly that they were anemic. They were also starving and cold.

Adidas was probably born about the end of July, 2010. One of the kittens, Fila, was unable to survive and passed away shortly after coming through the door. The others, three boys (Nike, Reebok and DC) and one girl (Puma) required intensive vet care. Sadly, Puma did not survive. The kittens were about four weeks old when they came to us.  All kittens found homes.  Their mother is still awaiting her turn after more than two years.  She was initially very scared, but has become very familiar with her home and the humans who care for her.  She has the softest fur of all our cats!

"Spock" came to us on September 21, 2011 from the Centreville area where he was seen lying on the side of the road. He was initially thought to be dead, but when his rescuers checked on him, they immediately brought him for help. He's about four and a half years old. He had never been neutered, he was very skinny, had a very large amount of ear mites which have caused damage to his ears, and he had a ruptured eardrum as a result. He also had many bite wounds on his body, including all four feet. He tested positive for Feline AIDS. He was put on antibiotics, parasite medications and pain medications to help him deal with these problems, and as of October 20th, he's doing very well.

Spock must either live with no other cats or with cats who already have tested positive for Feline AIDS so he does not pass it on to others. He's a very nice boy who is grateful for the warm bed and lots of canned food, which he wolfs down as quickly as it's put in front of him. On November 14, 2011 he went to be fostered with a very nice lady in Woodstock where he has made himself right at home while he awaits a permanent home.  Have a great time, Spock!

"Tyrion" came to DunRoamin' from Woodstock on January 16, 2012 where he was found on the trail behind JR's by some people out for a walk. Tyrion was emaciated, dehydrated and had bad infections in both eyes.  He was having a hard time breathing also.  Tyrion was only about one and a half years old.  He was brought for help, quickly treated and given a nice warm bed and food.  He tested positive for Feline Leukemia.

Tyrion was very sick, but the skill and efforts of his vet team have proven to be successful.  He's perfectly healthy now and will jump up to greet his visitors and beg for a pat and a chin rub!  He's very quiet, laid back and loving.  His best wish is for a quiet home with a senior citizen to whom he can dedicate himself completely, although he'd be more than happy with a large family also!

 

"Rally" came to DunRoamin' on March 8, 2012 from the Oakland area where she had been abandoned when her owner moved away. Neighbours had tried to catch her for several days, but she was terrified. They had a difficult time, but they did not give up. They finally were successful in catching her and brought her for help. Rally was about one year old.

Rally was very sick a bad upper respiratory infection. Her breathing sounded very wet and she struggled for air. Her eyes were also infected. Since she could not smell, she would not eat, and it was necessary to force feed her with a syringe. Regardless of all her troubles, she kneaded and purred - well aware that she was getting the help she needed.

She's doing very well in her new foster home with one of our DunRoamin' Kids. She feels much better and shows it by kneading and purring constantly if a human is within touching distance!  She hopes for a permanent home.  She loves kids, dogs and other cats and is very playful, although timid at first.

"Figaro" came back to us on May 23, 2012. He was born about the middle of August, 2011. He and his four siblings, Frisko, Flora, Fifi and Fiji had been found on the side of a road in East Brighton on October 28, 2011. No mother was present, and no one was caring for them. Figaro was adopted to a home in Bristol on March 27, 2012.

Figaro had developed diarrhea, and his owner had been bathing him and ensuring he was clean, but as he was starting work, he was concerned that he could not keep doing that. Other than the diarrhea, Figaro was fine. He's a sweet little boy. He has been diagnosed with irritable bowel disease which just means that he must eat a diet of Hypo-allergenic food, and he'll be fine. He's hoping for a home where he can either live by himself or with another cat who also eats Hypo food.

 

"Barbarossa" came to DunRoamin' on June 24, 2012 from the Debec area where he was apparently abandoned. Some people tried to catch him for several days because he appeared to have an injured hind leg and was drooling badly. He was eventually live trapped. Barbarossa is an intact male who is about two years old and is very timid.

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

Barbarossa's injuries were treated, and he's now neutered. He also had to have teeth removed, but he's fine now. On August 13, 2013 he went to a wonderful foster home with the best people ever!  He also has Dizzy as a foster sister, too!

"Dizzy" came back to us on August 15, 2012. She had originally come to DunRoamin' on June 28, 2011 from Pole Hill where she and her family had been found in a hot shed without food or water. She was born about May 25, 2011 and was adopted to a home in Florenceville on March 10, 2012. She experienced some problems there and came back to us for help as she had a bladder infection, but she's perfectly fine now.

Dizzy was a little bit timid, but is well over that now. She particularly seems to be attracted to men! She lived with several other cats with whom she got along just fine!  On August 13, 2013 she and her friend Barbarossa (see above) went to a foster home where they'll live the life of Riley while they await a permanent home.  Thanks, Seth and Sarah!!

Meet "Emm."  She and her two daughters, Bee and Double U were rescued from an abandoned home in Newburg in mid-August by a student who was moving away to school.  They came to us on August 27, 2012. She already had three cats of her own she was taking with her and couldn't take three more, but also couldn't leave them on their own. She gave them food, shelter and love enough to show them that people were willing to help. They had fleas, earmites and were happy to have food and a safe place to rest.

Bee and Double U are both adopted.  They were fostered by one of our DunRoamin' Kids in Woodstock. We're so grateful for our students who help care for these little ones and provide loving foster homes until permanent homes can be found for them.  Now just Emm is left awaiting a home.  We hope she finds one soon.

"Bubblegum" came to us on September 6, 2012 along with her five siblings from Oakland where they were found in a box on a doorstep.  They had terrible fleas, upper respiratory infection, were very thin and very hungry.

She and her siblings were fortunate to have a wonderful foster homes and quickly became very healthy, social and happy little beings.  Bubblegum was born about the middle of July, 2012.

Bubblegum is the last of her family to find a home.  She's very sweet and affectionate, quiet and appreciative of love, attention and friendship.  She's hoping for a home very soon.

"Gail" and her four kittens Greer, Gaines, Gamble and Gardner (all whom have been adopted) came to us on September 14, 2012 from Hartland where a kind and generous couple had been feeding several strays that had been dropped off in their area. The lady had recently passed away and the man was moving, so these young ones would no longer have anyone to watch out for them. All will be spayed/neutered, of course, as well as vaccinated, tested for FeLV and FIV and treated for parasites.

Gail is about a year old, and although she's a little timid, she's already come a long way in showing that she'll easily be an affectionate companion. We'd like to thank Michelle who is fostering her in Woodstock until she finds a permanent home.

"Jaime" came to us on the afternoon of September 15, 2012 from Mainstream where she had been seen for quite some time. She had a bad abscess in her right cheek, a huge amount of fleas and her left ear was badly infected. She is about two years old.

Jaime is a little timid, but snuggles in if she's picked up. She even purrs now and then! Her ears are being treated for the infection and she's getting much better day by day. On September 29, 2012 she went to stay with a foster family in the Hartland area. Thanks, Terri-Lynn and Chris!

 

"Julia" came to us on October 1, 2012. Her owner had passed away and she had no place to go. She had fleas, but was otherwise healthy.

Julia is a beautiful tabby and she has double paws on the front. She's very quiet, loving and affectionate. She loves attention, but is not aggressive about getting it. If you're willing to cuddle or pat her, that's just fine with her!

We'd like to thank Chris and Terri-Lynn for fostering her in Wakefield until she can find a new home.

 

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

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

"Hawkins" came to us on October 26, 2012 from the Hartland area where she had been a stray that a man and his wife had been feeding, along with many more who had been dropped off near their property. Sadly, the wife had passed away and the husband had to move and was unable to take such a large number of cats with him. As there was no one else to care for them, they needed help.

Hawkins is a beautiful little girl. She was born about the end of April, 2012 and was healthy but not yet spayed. She was taken in and has shown herself to be exceedingly grateful. She loves people and lots of other cats. We hope she gets a home very soon.

"Omen" came to the patio of a home in Perth-Andover on the afternoon of October 31, 2012. His rescuers immediately brought him to DunRoamin' where he was assessed as follows: his left eye is missing, leaving an empty socket which is infected, he had fleas to which he was allergic, so had developed a skin rash (dermatitis), his abdomen was distended and he had poor body and muscle condition. His fur was reddish in colour on the ends, perhaps as a result of his lack of good nutrition. He's at least eight years old, and has been on his own for quite some time.

Omen was in pretty rough shape, but despite all that, he loves people. He head butts, purrs and rubs against the closest human, saying thanks for all the help. He had already been neutered, so he must have belonged to someone at some point in his life. He's a real sweetheart, and whoever welcomes him into their home will be well rewarded. We'd like to thank the couple who brought him to us - they live in the Mirimichi, but made sure that they brought him all the way to us to make sure he got the help he needed. We're all very grateful, Sarah and Darren. Thank you.

"Abel," his brother Abner (see below) and sister Avis (already adopted) came to us on November 2, 2012 from Lakeville where they were strays who had no one to care for them. They were cold and had no prospects for a safe and warm winter.

Abel is a beautiful boy who was initially very scared, but he's gotten used to us, his nice warm bed and lots of food in his belly. It makes a difference. He's happy to be safe, loved, secure and with his brother Abner from whom he has never been apart.

"Abner," his brother Abel (see above) and sister Avis (already adopted) came to us on November 2, 2012 from Lakeville where they were strays who had no one to care for them. They were cold and had no prospects for a safe and warm winter.

Abner is a beautiful boy who was initially quite scared, but he's gotten used to us, his nice warm bed and lots of food in his belly. It makes a difference.  He loves his brother Abel and they are never more than a few inches apart, especially when it's time for bed!

"Phoebe" came to us on November 7, 2012 from Fielding where she was seen near a mail box all by herself. She's about five years old, was thin, starving, had deer ticks, a hernia, and very obviously needed help or she would not survive the coming cold weather.

She's very grateful to be safe, warm and have lots of food. She loves kids and other cats and is looking forward to having a permanent home for Christmas.

"Dawson" came to us on November 22, 2012 from Coldstream where he had been a stray. People there noticed that his tail was injured and that he appeared to be in pain, so they brought him for help. Dawson was born about May 15, 2012.

He was examined by a vet who determined that the injury was so severe that his tail had to be amputated.  It may have been burned, and he was in much pain.

Dawson quickly healed with the right medical assistance. He was initially scared, but he feels much better now that he's warm, fed and pain-free. He has recovered nicely from his surgery and is looking forward to a new home.  Right now he and his friend Figaro are best friends and would love to go to a home together if at all possible.

"Mikey" came to DunRoamin' on February 4, 2013 from Jacksonville where he was a stray who was found by a lady who took him in. However, when it was determined that he had medical issues, he was no longer wanted.

Mikey experienced sudden weight loss and was discovered to have a thyroid issue as well as being anemic. He was born somewhere around 2002 and had never been neutered.  He is neutered now.

Mikey is a nice boy who deserves a chance at a warm, safe, loving home. He requires medication to control his thyroid and he's doing fine. He loves to follow people around to get the most attention from them that he possibly can!

"Olaf" was about three years old when he came to DunRoamin' on February 26, 2013 from Rowena, where he had been a sick little stray. He had a bad upper respiratory infection, earmites and fleas. Unfortunately, he had no one to care for him and it's very cold out there these days and nights.  He was born about February, 2009.

Olaf was being treated for his problems. He's a sweetheart and is very grateful to be warm in his little red bed.  He's currently living in a foster home with other cats and two dogs and he loves them all.  He's a sweetheart with great big tomcat cheeks!

"CeeCee" came to us on February 28, 2013 from Oakland.  Her family was moving away and she wasn't going with them so euthanasia became a possibility.  She's a beautiful girl, and we couldn't stand that thought, so we asked for her.

CeeCee was a little bit cranky right at first, but we would be too in these circumstances!  She's learning quickly that she's right where she should be and is doing very well.  She hopes for a home soon.  She was born around the end of February, 2003, so she's about ten years old already.  She'd like to experience a warm and loving home, please . . ..

"Little Stinker" came to us on April 13, 2013 from Jacksonville where he was an injured stray who had been noted in the area.  He was born about April 14, 2011.  He was live trapped to get him help. He had a badly-infected right front paw which required medical attention.  He's already doing much better and is happy to be safe, warm and have a crew of minions who wait on his every desire.

Little Stinker is so named because he smelled like skunk, and his rescuer's truck now does the same.  But that's all part of the experience and she's not upset at all.  She's just glad he's safe. 

On April 16, 2013, "Dazzler" came back to DunRoamin'.  She had been adopted in February but was returned to our care as she was not comfortable with very young children.  She's fine with older kids and adults, so she's hoping for a new home.  She originally came to us from the Hartland area where she and her siblings were found locked in a shed.

Dazzler was born about May 25, 2011.  She has beautiful eyes, one of which is blue, and a wonderful personality.  She's been waiting a long time for that perfect home and we hope she can have it soon.  She's okay here with her two- and four-legged friends, but it'd be SO nice to have her own home and family.  Please stop in and meet her.

 

"Dundee" came to DunRoamin' on June 18, 2013 from Carlo where she had come to the home of senior citizens all on her own.  She was cold and hungry and had no one to care for her.  The lady of the house was taking her husband to Saint John for surgery the very next morning and would not return for some time, so Dundee had no place to go to be safe.

Dundee was born about the middle of May 2013.  She had earmites and fleas but is otherwise healthy.  She eats like a little pig and purrs like a lioness.  She loves people and other cats.  She'd like a permanent home where she can grow up to share her love with a human and maybe even another feline or two!  She's presently fostered in  Wicklow with one of our DunRoamin' student volunteers.

 

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

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

 

"Beans" came to us from Jacksonville on July 3, 2013, a stray who had come to a trailer park about three weeks previously.  People there thought his family might find him, but they eventually realized he needed help.  He was born about July 2, 2008.

Beans was already neutered and had been declawed.  He had numerous wounds on his body, including an eight-centimetre wound on his left thigh, several two-centimetre wounds on his head, a healing wound on the side of his right ear that caused part of his ear to fall off and a huge 15-centimetre by 20-centimetre wound on the left side of his head and neck.  Half the skin had fallen off and the other half soon did.  He was given pain medication and antibiotics to help treat his injuries.  Beans tested positive for FIV (please read below).  We hope we can find a home for him really soon - it's high time he had a better life.

** 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 some FIV positive cats living with other FIV negative cats and have so far found the risk to the non-FIV cats to be very small, assuming that the cats are all spayed/neutered and used to living in groups, (ie:  not as likely to fight).  

Please read about FIV here.

"Carroll" came back to DunRoamin' on July 9, 2013.  He had been adopted on January 18, 2013 and had been doing fine, but his owner developed medical problems and he was no longer able to live with them, so he came back to us for a new home.  He was born about August 1, 2012.

He had originally come from the Woodstock area on December 14, 2012 because he had a serious eye injury which had become infected.  As a result he had to have his eye surgically removed, but it doesn't slow him down one little bit!  He's very loving, playful and affectionate.  He's being fostered in Fielding for now, but he'd really like to have a permanent home.  Please come meet him!

 

"Chewbacca" came to DunRoamin' on Sunday, August 18, 2013 from Stickney where he had been found laying on the side of a road.  His rescuers noticed there was definitely something wrong and brought him for help.

Chewbacca was examined and found to have earmites and he was not neutered, but his main problem was the bite wound on the side of his neck.  He had been attacked by an animal and sustained injuries as a result.  He was in pain, and he was terrified.

Chewbacca was given antibiotics and pain medication and was placed in a warm, safe environment with lots of nutritious food.  He's currently living with a dozen other cats with whom he gets along just fine.  He's a little timid when you first reach for him, but then he remembers that everyone loves him and that he's safe.  Then he waits for his chin to be rubbed!  He's moved in with 13 other cats and is starting to enjoy himself.

 

"Lacey" came to DunRoamin' on September 27, 2013 from the Edmundston area when she, her two sisters and Sterling (see above) were rescued from a box on the side of the road.  There was no mother.  Another sibling had already perished, perhaps of starvation, as Lacey and her siblings are barely old enough to eat on their own.  The SPCA was contacted but they were not willing to help keep them alive and euthanization instructions were issued.  Neither their rescuer nor their new vet was satisfied with that response, so they were brought to DunRoamin' so they could survive.  They are currently being fed by syringe to ensure they get the nourishment they require.

Lacey is a silver tabby who was born about August 25, 2013.  She was watched closely since she was the smallest.  They were so young and we don't know how long they were without their mom and therefore unable to eat, but it seems they've overcome any potential problems.  They were fostered in Florenceville and are now fostered by loving pet people near Perth-Andover.  Thank you!

 

"Kacey" came to DunRoamin' on September 27, 2013 from the Edmundston area when she, her two sisters and Sterling (see above) were rescued from a box on the side of the road.  Another sibling had already perished, perhaps of starvation, as Kacey and her siblings are barely old enough to eat on their own.  The SPCA was contacted but they were unwilling to help ensure they continued to survive, and euthanization instructions were issued.  Neither their rescuer nor their new vet was satisfied with that response, so they were brought to DunRoamin' so they could live.  They are currently being fed by syringe to ensure they get the nourishment they require.

Kacey is a tabby who was born about August 25, 2013.  She's enjoying the food, soft bed and warm snuggle safe for now.  

They were fostered in Florenceville and are now fostered by loving pet people near Perth-Andover.  Thank you!

 

"Racey" came to DunRoamin' on September 27, 2013 from the Edmundston area when she, her two sisters and Sterling (see above) were rescued from a box on the side of the road.  Another sibling had already perished, perhaps of starvation, as Racey and her siblings are barely old enough to eat on their own.  The SPCA was called, but they were not willing to help these little ones live and euthanization instructions were issued.  This was unacceptable to their rescuer or their new vet so they came to DunRoamin' so that they could live.  They're just babies.  All three are currently being fed by syringe to ensure they get the nourishment they require.

Racey is a black and white little girl who was born about August 25, 2013.  She's enjoying the food, soft bed and warm snuggle safe for now.  She's the most curious and energetic of the three, and has established her little kingdom already! They were fostered in Florenceville and are now fostered by loving pet people near Perth-Andover.  Thank you!

   

"Prada" arrived at DunRoamin' on the morning of October 8, 2013 when she was left on the doorstep.  She was another unwanted, unloved, dropped-off kitten.  She was born about September 1, 2013.  Other than being skinny and hungry, she was relatively healthy. 

She purrs easily but was confused, scared and uncertain.  She's safe, warm, fed and will be spayed, vaccinated and receive all the care due her.  She'd like to have a permanent home if at all possible, but right now she's very grateful to the young lady who arrived at DunRoamin' on October 9th to offer her a foster home.  Thanks so much, Hannah, Heidi and Robert!!  They report that she is a bit timid with strangers but she is very loving and can out-purr the big cats any day!

 

"Pilgrim" came to DunRoamin' at 6:12 pm, October 12, 2013 when he was abandoned with his basket and food at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic after working hours.  He was born about April, 2011.  He is an intact male who had fleas and earmites.  It was a very cool night, and coyotes were howling, perhaps announcing their plans for supper.  He tested positive for FIV**.

Pilgrim is a great boy with lots of personality.  He loves dogs and considers himself the boss of the building.  He yowls for attention and splays himself in the middle of the floor for all to admire.  He's waiting for that perfect someone with a matching personality to take him home - someone with taste, personality and class!  He's currently in a foster home while he awaits a permanent home.

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

"Pierre" came from Woodstock on October 23, 2013.  He was dehydrated, his bladder was thickened and painful and he was not eating.  He had acute renal failure as a result of feline lower urinary tract infection.  He tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV**)  (please read below). 

Pierre was treated at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic for all his problems and recovered quickly.   He's a beautiful and loving boy who just wants some people of his own to be his family so he can love them.  He's quiet, attentive and loving.  You wouldn't even know he's around until he climbs on your lap for a bit of loving.

"Cozy" came from the Florenceville area on October 29, 2013.  He was the baby of a mother who wasn't nursing him.  He was starving and was too young to urinate on his own.  He was born about October 1, 2013.  He must be fed by syringe and stimulated to urinate. 

Cozy appears to be doing well.   He's hoping for a new home very soon.

 

"Alice" came to us on November 20, 2013 from Centreville.  Early that morning we got a call about a mother cat who had gotten her head stuck in a glass jar.  She had succeeded in breaking the jar, but the ring was still around her neck as it had been for several weeks.  It was believed that the jar was cutting her neck.  She had six tiny babies that she was nursing and had no shelter.  Kind people were trying to feed her, but she was very scared.

Alice did not appear to be the baby of this cat, but she needed help.  She was taken to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where she was determined to have been born about July 20, 2013.  She was very thin, starving, had fleas and is semi-feral, but that won't last long with all the love she'll be getting.  She was the most timid of the three kittens but is now very affectionate and loving.  She was vaccinated and tested for FIV/FeLV.  She is also spayed. 

 

"Veronica" came to us on November 20, 2013 from Centreville.  Early that morning we got a call about a mother cat who had gotten her head stuck in a glass jar.  She had succeeded in breaking the jar, but the ring was still around her neck as it had been for several weeks.  It was believed that the jar was cutting her neck.  She had six tiny babies that she was nursing and had no shelter.  Kind people were trying to feed her, but she was very scared.

Veronica did not appear to be the baby of this cat, but she needed help.  She was taken to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where she was determined to have been born about July 20, 2013.  She was very thin, starving, had fleas and was semi-feral, but that didn't last long with all the love she's been getting.  She was vaccinated and tested for FIV and FeLV, both of which were negative.  She is now spayed.  She's VERY outgoing and loves other cats, particularly her sister Alice (see above).!

 

"Flurry" came to us from the Perth-Andover area on December 2, 2013.  She's about seven and a half months old (born around April 15, 2013) and was in pretty bad shape.  She had not eaten for several days, was emaciated and extremely dehydrated.  As you can tell from her picture, she did not feel well at all.

Flurry was treated at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic for all her medical problems.  She got lots of food, lots of medical care, lots of attention and lots of love.   She's responding to all these things and is ready for a home of her very own.  She's a little on the quiet side and just enjoys being on  someone's lap for a bit of cuddle time.  She particularly loves her buddy Burl who arrived at DunRoamin' the day before her with very similar needs.

 

"Ferrero" came to us on the early afternoon of December 4, 2013 when a man brought a carrier of five cats to DunRoamin', insisting that we take them.  As we are a rescue as opposed to a shelter, several other options were presented to him as ways to find homes for his cats.  However, he dropped the carrier on the floor and ran from the building, abandoning all five cats.  They appeared to be about 10 months old, born about February 1, 2013.

Ferrero, his two brothers and two sisters were spayed or neutered and vaccinated.  All tested negative for Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus.  Bottom line is, they're all beautiful cats and they all deserve a loving home and family.  Ferrero is very outgoing and affectionate and he loves to play, too!

"Ganong" came to us on the early afternoon of December 4, 2013 when a man brought a carrier of five cats to DunRoamin', insisting that we take them.  As we are a rescue as opposed to a shelter, several other options were presented to him as ways to find homes for his cats.  However, he dropped the carrier on the floor and ran from the building, abandoning all five cats.  They appeared to be about 10 months old, born about February 1, 2013.

Ganong, his two brothers and two sisters were spayed or neutered and vaccinated.  All tested negative for Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus.  Bottom line is, they're all beautiful cats and they all deserve a loving home and family. 

Ganong is a sweetheart and a gentleman.  He will gladden the home of his new family - that's a guarantee!

 
"Lindor" came to us on the early afternoon of December 4, 2013 when a man brought a carrier of five cats to DunRoamin', insisting that we take them.  As we are a rescue as opposed to a shelter, several other options were presented to him as ways to find homes for his cats.  However, he dropped the carrier on the floor and ran from the building, abandoning all five cats.  They appeared to be about 10 months old, born about February 1, 2013.

Lindor, his two brothers and two sisters were spayed or neutered and vaccinated.  All tested negative for Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus.  Bottom line is, they're all beautiful cats and they all deserve a loving home and family.  Lindor is the quietest of his siblings, but he's very loving and playful.

 

"Boulder" arrived at DunRoamin' on December 6, 2013.  He was one of more than 140 animals (including dogs, cats, birds, pot-bellied pigs, chinchillas and gerbils) seized by the SPCA in Fredericton on December 3, 2013.  DunRoamin' was one of several shelters and rescues asked to assist in helping some of the dozens of cats to regain their health and to find loving homes.  Wallowitz and his four friends (see above and below) were picked up and transported by Dr Monteith of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic who chose the ones who required more intense medical attention.

Boulder is a senior-aged black neutered male.  His left ear is a "cauliflower ear" (perhaps from an untreated aural hematoma due to ear mites).  He had moderate discharge from his eyes and nose and had ear mites.  He was missing many of his teeth and the rest were in such a state that they required surgery to remove them.  He was emaciated and dehydrated.  He was given fluids and was treated for the remainder of his medical concerns.  He's already been described as "an old gentleman" despite what he's obviously been through.  He's doing very well now.  He's a quiet boy who likes to be patted and to sit on your lap or beside you.  He just loves the company (and body heat!)

"Manfred" came to us on December 9, 2013 from the lumber yard in Bristol where he had been hanging out for more than a week. It's cold out there now and he had no home.  He was born sometime around December 2011.  People wanted to take him in but their landlord threatened eviction as cats were not allowed.  Shelters are full and there was no other place available for him.

Manfred is a cute little guy who's happy to be warm and safe at last.  He's eating and sleeping in peace and comfort at last.  He's hoping for a home soon. He is very energetic and loves to play with other cats.  He's full of it!!  He currently lives with 13 other cats with whom he gets along very well.  He's a bit on the quiet side - or maybe the word is "laid back!"

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

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

 

"Hearts" came to DunRoamin' on October 5, 2012 from Centreville where he was found by a compassionate woman. He was barely alive, was very cold and anemic. Intensive medical care at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic brought him back to where he should be and he's grateful to his medical staff who gave him a second chance.  He was born about the middle of May 2012.

Hearts is very loving and affectionate and you'd never know now that he had been in such dire straits.  His favourite words are "food" and "thank you."  On December 3, 2013 he was adopted to a home in Waterville, but unfortunately his kitten antics were a bit too much for his family who had two other older felines in the household.  So Hearts is back with us awaiting a permanent home.  He is very affectionate, energetic and curious and is a very entertaining little boy who's waiting for that special someone who will appreciate his outgoing personality. 

"Kennett" came to us on December 18, 2013 from the Bristol area.  He was a stray whom a lady had been feeding for many weeks but he had no shelter as she was unwilling to let him in her home.  Our temperatures have been as cold as -30* lately, and although he had a place where he could get out of the wind, he was not at all warm.

Kennett had earmites but was otherwise medically sound.  He spent his first night in oh-so-long in a warm building with a soft bed.  Can you imagine how he feels now?  He loves people, kids and other cats.  Half his Christmas wish has already been granted.  Now if he could just get a family . . .  He's living with six other cats and he gets along famously with each one. 

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

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

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

 

"Naughty" came to DunRoamin' on December 23, 2013 from the Florenceville area when he was observed to have an injury. His left hind leg is fractured and he was having trouble getting around.  He was most probably struck by a car.  That must HURT!!  And it's COLD out there, too!  He was born about March, 2012. 

Naughty underwent surgery at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic to have a pin inserted in his leg and wore a cast for quite some time.  He's a very nice boy who's grateful to be warm and pain-free.  He got his cast off and then the pin was removed from his leg and he's doing very well.  He's a quiet little boy who shows his gratitude for his new life daily by purring, kneading and head butting the nearest human!

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

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

 

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

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

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

 
Breeze & Pounce, Blitz

Bristle

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

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

Pounce and Breeze are still a little timid but have come a very long way in a short time.  They're gonna be fine.

"Garreth" originally came to DunRoamin' on August 10, 2013.  He had been born about  June 15, 2013.  A man from Woodstock came to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic and left him and his eight siblings in a box for DunRoamin' to care for and fled.  They had been left in a box on his deck while he was away from home.  Garreth was adopted on October 13, 2013 but came back to us when he experienced a bout of diarrhea.  He has been treated and is fine. He'd like to go to a home with adults or kids - someone who will give him plenty of attention.  He LOVES people and will jump into your arms to get a hug and a pat!

He's hoping for a home and family of his very own.

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

Noah was found to have a minor urinary tract infection which was treated quickly.  This brought his personality back to normal since he felt so much better so quickly.  He's a beautiful boy who is affectionate and happy now that he's feeling so much better.  He is about seven years old and he'd just like to go back into a family atmosphere.  He's perfectly happy and healthy - just missing that one little thing . . . family.

 

"Plinko" came to DunRoamin' on January 27, 2014 from the Perth-Andover area where she was a stray who was injured.  Upon examination it was determined that she was thin and lame on her right front leg due to in infected injury on the back of her elbow.  She's only about one year old.

Plinko must have had a family recently.  She is in decent physical shape other than her leg injury and she is very loving and affectionate - obviously having been familiar with being on the receiving end of the same affection.  Her leg has healed quickly and she's looking for her family.  She loves to stand or ride on your shoulders and play with your hair.

   

"Rae" came to us on the evening of February 12, 2014 from the Greenfield area where she had been found in the middle of a road a distance from any houses.  She obviously needed help.  She was taken to the Florenceville Vet Clinic where she was examined and the following was learned:  she was about five and a half months old, weighed only 2.2 pounds, she had earmites, her ear tips had been frozen in the last few days and she had upper respiratory infection, but these were the very least of her problems.  It seems that she had probably climbed onto a vehicle engine to find warmth and as a result had sustained a traumatic amputation of her tail which has resulted in soft tissue injury all around her anus.  She probably fell out of the engine as the vehicle moved along the road.  This is an incredibly painful injury.  The remaining portion of her tail was about one inch long, had gravel embedded in it and she had lost a lot of blood.

Rae's injury was cleaned, the end of what remained of her tail was amputated and the skin was sutured to close the wound.  It may be two to six weeks to determine the full extent of the damage to her rectum as there is much swelling, but in the meantime she's getting the best care possible.  She's doing well as of March 22.  Crankshaft, another DunRoamin' rescue, sustained a very similar injury and is doing just fine, so we're hoping for the best for little Rae also.  She's very loving and affectionate. 

 

 

February 28, 2014 

March 16, 2014

"Luckie" became a ward of DunRoamin' on February 28, 2014.  She had been found on the side of the road in Greenfield and she was in rough shape.  She was emaciated, extremely dehydrated and her temperature was only 35*C - it should be closer to 39*C.   Luckie's ears had old frost-bite injuries and her paws were swollen to twice their normal size.  She was in such bad shape she didn't even want to eat.  We don't want to think about the state she'd be in if she hadn't been found.

Luckie has lost parts of her ears and will most likely lose a large part of her tail, but we hope she'll be okay otherwise.  She's grateful to the people who found her and made sure she got the medical care she required.  It's been way too cold out there for such a little girl.  She's only about a year old, if that.  As of March 10, 2014, the swelling in her feet has gone down but the pads of her feet are starting to come off so she had pretty pink bandages on to keep them warm and clean.  She still has a ways to go, but we're hoping with the care that she's getting she'll be fine. 

On March 17, 2014 Luckie underwent surgery at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic to remove the toes from all four feet due to the intensive damage sustained from her ordeal of trying to survive in the cold.  Her vet is hoping to be able to re-establish pads on at least some of her feet so that she'll be able to walk with a degree of comfort and we're hoping for the best for her.  She has the best vet for the job and is loved by all.  So:  veterinary experience, concern and dedication, food, warmth, love and attention - how can she not do well with that kind of support?  And she'll have a loving family when she's ready to go home.  Donations are gratefully accepted for her care.

 

"LeMieux" came to us on March 5, 2014 from Holmesville where he was a stray who was observed to be injured.  He had no shelter, was scared and had to be live trapped.

LeMieux was examined by a vet who determined he was about three years old, had ear mites, cat fight wounds on his head and a healed bite wound on his right hind leg.  He's a very nice boy who loves to cuddle.  He's very quiet and unassuming.

"Anna" came to DunRoamin' well after dark on March 6, 2014 from the Bath area.  A car pulled into a driveway, dropped her out and drove away, making her someone else's responsibility.

Anna was scared but is now safe and warm.  Had she not been noticed immediately and taken in she would have spent the night in a strange area with no shelter.  The temperature was -14*C when she was abandoned.  She was examined by a vet who determined that she was uninjured.  She did a lot of hissing and spitting at first, but has realized that she's among friends now and is very friendly and affectionate.

Look at me now!!! (5 Apr 14)

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

Tommy is only about a year old, born around the middle of March 2013.  He's a very nice boy who is grateful for the food and warm bed.  He'll be feeling better quickly once the medications take effect.  Right now his eyes are really sore and he feels pretty blah.  Unfortunately he's been diagnosed with FIV**.  Please read about it below.  He'll be perfectly fine once he heals from all his wounds and infection.  That'll be easy now that he's warm, safe, can get lots of rest and proper nutrition and is getting the medication he needs for his infection.  He's a very lucky boy to have help!

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

Please read about FIV here.

"Lowen" and his brother Shaemus (see below) came to DunRoamin' on the morning of March 30, 2014.  They had been left in a carrier in front of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic at about 11:40 pm the previous evening.  Since the clinic is not open on Sundays it is very fortunate that they were spotted around noon the next day.  They were very cold, thirsty and hungry, as well as scared, having been there for almost twelve hours in the cold temperatures.  The front third of the cat carrier in which they were abandoned was drifted in with snow and snow covered the top as well.

They were brought into the warmth, fed and given water.  They were examined by a vet who determined that they were about eight months old and were healthy other than having fleas and earmites.  They were vaccinated, neutered and tested for Feline Immunodeficiency and Feline Leukemia for which they tested negative.  They are kind and loving animals.

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

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

"Sergio" came to us from Perth-Andover on April 11, 2014.  He was an injured stray who had been observed in the area.  A lady live-trapped him and brought him for help.  He had an injury to his left ear which had become infected.  He also had earmites and fleas.  He was unneutered.  Sergio is FIV-positive.

"Ezra" came to us on the afternoon of April 12, 2014 from the Florenceville area.  He is about two years old and is a very nice boy.  He had become blocked (was unable to pass urine) and was very ill since the liquid waste was unable to leave his body and was backing up into his system.

His family was unable to keep him so he was surrendered to DunRoamin' and treated for his urinary tract problems.  We hope he'll be fine very soon.  In the meantime, he's getting the best of care from FVC's interim vet so we're sure he'll be good. 

"Lars" came to us on April 14, 2014 when he was found on a doorstep.  He's about three years old, not neutered, had a large open wound under his front leg, old battle wounds on his body and evidence of damage to his ears from previous frostbite.  All four canine teeth were broken off and had to be removed.  He's quite obviously been fighting for his life for quite some time.  This photo shows some of his injuries.

He's a super sweet boy who, even though it appears he's never been indoors before, sat on the window sill and purred while he awaited a chin scratch.  His new life starts today.  Anyone interested in helping him get started please give us a call at 328-3380!


"Prentiss," a 10-month old little orange girl, came to us on April 25, 2014 from Grafton where she had given birth to four babies in a milk can two days previously.  She is a very affectionate and loving cat who loves laps and purrs constantly.  She's not much more than a baby herself.

She's a very good mom who keeps her babies warm, clean and well fed.  The two orange babies are boys ("Reid" and "Rossi") and the other two are females ("JJ" and "Garcia" ).
