"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 for him 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 involved 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 have the benefit of plenty of food.  Even as feral as they were, they recognized compassion and came slowly inside.  When the senior citizen would get up to close the door, they'd run back outside.  She finally was able to close the door behind them and they came to us for help.  Goochi has been waiting for her home for seven 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 was born about March, 2007.  He had never been neutered, he was very skinny, had a very large number of ear mites which had 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 (FIV).  He was put on antibiotics, parasite medications and pain medications to help him deal with these problems and 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!

** 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.

"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.  On August 13, 2013 he went to a wonderful foster home with the best people ever!   Now he's back at DunRoamin'. 

In December, 2016, Barbarossa was diagnosed with renal (kidney) failure.  He eats a Renal diet and requires sub-cutaneous fluids daily but is otherwise fine.  He has received a catheter to deliver these fluids in a very fast, efficient and pain-free manner, so he's very happy to have the love and support of his friends at DunRoamin'.  He really is such a very sweet boy.  Other than attaching a bag of fluids to his catheter for five minutes once a day, he requires no additional medical care or support.  His favourite way to pass the time is to chase and carry his toys around and he loves to steal Samuel's bed!

"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 who 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 was 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!

"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 seems to be dependent on the size and personality of the dog!  He hasn't had a lot of exposure to dogs, but he's 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 was 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 shown few symptoms of epilepsy, 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 soon 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 startled by 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.  Blitz and Breeze have since been adopted, but Pounce and Bristle are still waiting.  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 and she loves to be patted, picked up and cuddled. 

Pounce (black) and Bristle (tabby) are still waiting for a home after more than three 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.

"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 came back 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.  She is currently fostered by a loving family in Curring Siding, along with her friend Trickle.  Thank you!

"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 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 in Hartland who also adopted two DunRoamin' kittens (Fire and Ice).  He will be a new best friend for three children, but he's quite partial to the gentleman - they've bonded 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? 

Benedict eventually was diagnosed with a bladder infection and a small bladder stone but he's fine now.  He 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 both cats were unable to stay in the home.  Write-On had originally been struck by a car while living in the Bristol area and had sustained a broken lower jaw and injured front leg, but had been all 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 was 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 went 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 and rubs against them asking for lots of 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, buthe quickly became comfortable enough to meet us at his kennel door.  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 where he is doing just great, 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.  He is so very handsome with his pewter gray fur!

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 happy to have lots of cat friends around her right now, but she's hoping for a loving family soon.

Week 1


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 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, she is much less little timid of people.  She'd like a quiet home with some humans of her very own to love and she'd also like to have a cat friend or two to cuddle with.

"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 Dutch's kittens found homes but she is still waiting for her chance at love.  She is grateful to have friends, but she dreams of family.

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 unable to keep or care for them.  There had originally been four, but one had gotten away.  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 set a live trap which she checked frequently in the hope of finding the fourth kitten.  It was cold and lonely out there at night, but the fourth was not located.  Thank you so much for trying - these three little ones are safe because of you.  All were born about May 28, 2016.  They all were spayed, vaccinated, tested for FeLV and FIV and treated for all parasites.

Sugar's siblings were adopted on January 29, 2017 and she's hoping for the same opportunity very soon.  She's a beautiful little girl who would very much like a family of her own.

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.  They were born about May 18, 2016.  Juan is a silver tabby and was quite timid and nervous at first, but now he just loves everyone.

Juan currently lives with four other cats at DunRoamin' and he's well used to the hustle, bustle and all the volunteers who treat him so well.  He'd love to go to a safe, warm and loving home, especially if his brother Pablo gets 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.  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.  Now he's nothing short of the cutest, loudest-purring cuddle cat you'll ever meet!

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!  They love sleeping wrapped around each other!

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 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, spayed, fully vaccinated and tested for FIV and FeLV.  She's perfectly fine!

Peace is so named because her white and grey fur form a peace sign on the back of her head.  She's still a little timid, but she's safe, warm, has a full belly and is surrounded by friends. 

As of November 12, 2016, Peace purrs  and allows herself to be picked up and cuddled.  She's not 100% trusting yet, but she's well on her way!

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

"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 had 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 were 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.

As of March 6, 2017, Lemur is doing fine.  He loves attention and will bat at your hand with his paw to make sure he gets the attention he feels he deserves.  He's quite the boy!

"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.  The femoral head was removed from his hip joint and he now has pins and wire to stabilize the joint and help him get back to perfection!  He's doing very well!

Shortly after Christmas 2016, Kendrick was diagnosed with an abscessed kidney which resulted in it growing to three times it's normal size.  He is being treated with a three-month course of antibiotics and we're hoping that will do the trick - he'd be fine after that.  Worse-case scenario:  his kidney will be removed - we've already determined that his other kidney is fine, so he'll be fine whichever way it goes.  He is very loving and affectionate and he loves sleeping on the boss's chair - it's his favourite nap spot! 

Stay tuned - we'll keep you up to date.  He's doing very well and we expect that he'll continue to do so.  He is very affectionate with people and loves to be around other cats.

"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, he was treated and he's fine now.  As a matter of fact, he's perfect. 

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 received the medical, social and loving attention that he deserves.  He is eating as though he believes there will never be enough food in this world.  He has become a cuddle cat who loves being patted and he will do almost anything to be held!  He was on medication to help him along, but he requires it no longer. 

Somerset has been neutered and vaccinated and he's grateful to be warm, fed and have servants.  Next step:  a loving home and family.  If you're able to help him find his way to a loving home and family, your assistance would be greatly appreciated!

"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 were 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 appeared to be in decent shape.  He was born about December 16, 2011, so he was about five years old and was already neutered, so he belonged to someone at some time. 

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 with your care.

"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 had an injury to his tail, most probably resulting from it being caught in something and jerked very hard.

Nascat required his tail to be amputated.  He is doing better, but must have his urine expressed from his body due to the fact that he currently cannot pee on his own as he does not have control of his bladder or bowel.  He is a very affectionate little boy who is hoping for a caring person to give him the life he would like to experience.

"Snicket" came to us from the Greenfield area on January 18, 2017.  He was in rough shape.  He was emaciated, very dehydrated, starving, had very inflamed ears, many ear mites, had irritation around his nostrils and anus and the tip of his right ear was frostbitten.  It eventually fell off, and some of the pads on his feet did the same, due to the frostbite injuries he received while out in the cold all by himself.  He was just a baby, born about May 18, 2016.

All Snicket's problems were immediately addressed.  He got a nice warm bed, medication for what ailed him, lots of healthy, nutritious food and people who will care for him exactly as he deserved to be cared for.  Snicket was "a work in progress," but he made great strides and was soon ready to go to a loving home.  He's heard so many stories about how wonderful a family can be for a little kitten that he just can't wait to experience it for himself!

"Wilson" was returned to DunRoamin' on January 24, 2016.  He had originally been adopted by a family from Florenceville in November, 2008, but due to medical considerations in the home, he could no longer live there.  Wilson had originally been left, along with nine brothers and sisters, on the steps of Carleton County Animal Shelter on Canada Day, 2008.  The kittens were barely four weeks old.  As the shelter could not deal with such a large number of kittens at one time, DunRoamin' accepted them and our volunteers and foster parents quickly took over their care.  Many were sick and required much attention, but eventually all except little Burbank became well and were adopted - four went together to a wonderful lady in Centreville!

Wilson is extremely loving and friendly, loves his belly rubs and loves everyone he meets.  He has not yet been exposed to dogs.  Upon his return Wilson weighed approximately 25 pounds, so is now on a special Calorie Control diet.  He's not too happy about that, but it's what he needs, and we're hoping that in the next few months we can help him lose his excess weight so he can become healthy once again.  He is a very nice boy who loves people.  We hope he'll be able to go to a home by early March!


Wilson, August 2008

"Barlow" came to DunRoamin' on January 24, 2017 from the NB SPCA, part of a large number of cats who were living together who needed some help.  Barlow had ear mites and was quite timid, but he's starting to come around, now that he has lots of caring people who socialize with him often to make him feel safe and loved.

Barlow was born about January 24, 2015.  He has been neutered, vaccinated and received treatment for all parasites, as well as tested for FIV and FeLV.  He would love to have a quiet, loving home and would appreciate having another feline friend to keep him company.  He is a real cuddle cat once he gets to know you.  His favourite pose is with his front paws on your knees asking to be picked up!

"Blossom" came to DunRoamin' on January 24, 2017 from the NB SPCA, part of a large number of cats who were living together who needed some help.  Blossom had ear mites and was pregnant.

Blossom was born about May 24, 2012.  She has been vaccinated and received treatment for all parasites, as well as tested for FIV and FeLV.  She's very friendly and affectionate, and she's waiting for that perfect person to come take her home.  She and Barlow (see above) currently live together and are the best of friends.

"Derp" came to DunRoamin' on January 24, 2017 as a seizure by the NB SPCA, part of a large number of cats who were living together who needed some help.  Derp had a wound on his head, and extremely bad ear mites which had been so terrible that they had damaged both his ear drums.  One ear drum was not salvageable but thanks to medical intervention, the other appears to be healing fine.  Derp has only one bone (as opposed to two, as all other cats do) in his right front leg.  Although his leg works fine, there is a possibility that his wrist or elbow joint could dislocate.  He also has one hip which is dysplastic and both his knees in his hind legs slip out of place.  He will require surgery to repair this condition, but we're sure he'll be fine.  Just ask Asher (check out our Adopted Cats page) who had the same problem, underwent surgery for it and is PERFECTLY fine!  He runs, plays and jumps with the best of them.  Maybe better!  Just ask him!!

Derp was born about May 24, 2016, so was just a kitten of only eight months when he was rescued.  What a hard time he's had, but only good things are in store for him now.  He will be neutered, vaccinated and receive treatment for all his medical problems, as well as tested for FIV and FeLV.   His ear is improving and we're sure there are many more medical miracles on the way for him.  He is a sweetheart who really pines for a family who will love and care for him as he deserves.

"Haven" came to us from Juniper on February 3, 2017, another stray whom no one could take in.  He was named Haven because he really needed one.  He had various cuts and scratches around his ears and was not a happy camper.  He needed help and friends, both of which he received.  He was born about June 3, 2013.

Haven was immediately neutered and vaccinated.   As he was upset and scared about all his new circumstances, he received a nice set of blue Soft Paws so his nails could not do any damage.  Although he still had a way to go, by the evening he was already much more calm and relaxed because he realized that he was safe, fed, had shelter and had nothing to fear. 

Haven has blue eyes, which means he could potentially have a hearing problem, but we have noticed nothing so far.  He's a very nice boy who is settling in well.  He is handsome, intelligent and loving, and he's just waiting for the perfect family who will appreciate those traits.  During the first week of March, 2017, he has displayed a bit of upper respiratory infection, but we're hoping he'll be fine to go to a home by the end of the month.

"William" came to DunRoamin' on February 10, 2017 from the Bath area.  He is a very handsome orange tabby with striking green eyes who was born sometime in the year 2000, so he's about 17 years old.  He's very loving, quiet and affectionate and he'd just like to have a home and a family to care for him in his golden years. 

William enjoys other cats and has shown no problems with the dogs he has encountered since he has been with us.  He is healthy, happy and hoping for someone to make his life complete.  He just needs a nice soft, warm bed, some food and some lovin'.  Oh, and some Temptations.  Lots of Temptations.  Any takers??

"Bowie" became DunRoamin' on Valentine's Day, 2017 when he came from the Perth-Andover area.  He is a handsome and wildly affectionate little boy who seems to love everyone he meets and eagerly greets newcomers with loving head butts.  He was born about July 29, 2015.

Bowie has been diagnosed with a condition which requires him to eat Urinary S/O food.  This is nothing serious at all - he just requires a special diet to ensure he does not block.  He also had an upper respiratory infection, but he's quite well over that.  Bowie was also diagnosed with a cataract in his right eye.  As of March 17, 2017, he is being treated for that and we'll see how he does.  He also has an inflamed bladder wall, but has no bladder stones, which is a good thing.  He is being treated with fluids, pain medication and antibiotics, as well as supplements to soothe his bladder.  We're hoping that he will be okay and we're ensuring he's getting all medical care he requires.  He hopes to become well soon so that he can spend the rest of his life being warm, safe and loved.  Who doesn't deserve that??

"Judson" came to DunRoamin' from Upper Brighton on March 8, 2017.  He had been seeking shelter from the cold in the cellar of a home in which a furnace was providing some heat.  The people there were feeding him, but they had their full quota of cats to look after, so he needed some help.  He was born about March 8, 2016.

Judson had fleas, earmites and the normal array of parasites.  He also had a swollen nose, superficial healing wounds and enlarged lymph nodes, all of which will be fine as a result of the medical care he receives.  He is VERY social and loving, so he's belonged to someone at some point in his life.   He has now been neutered.

"Joel" came to DunRoamin' on March 15, 2017.  He had been seized by the NBSPCA on February 10, 2017 and was very sick with upper respiratory infection.  He's doing much better now and will be neutered and have his teeth cleaned as required.

Joel is a sweetheart.  He head butts, purrs and kneads constantly, now that he's feeling so much better.  He will receive vaccines and is hoping for a loving family very soon.
