"Chazzy" came to DunRoamin' on October 25, 2010, after being found on the side of the road in the pouring rain near Tim Horton's on Beardsley Road near Woodstock, NB two days earlier.  He appeared to have an injured leg, as he would not let his rescuers touch it.  He was very hungry, cold, wet and exhausted.  He was taken in and cared for until he could be brought for medical help.  He was born about May, 2007.

Chazzy was diagnosed with an extreme number of fleas.  He had never been neutered, had worms, bloody diarrhea and an ulcerated tongue.  This would have made it very difficult and painful to eat, thus explaining his lack of weight. He also had a urinary problem in which he was unable to pee.  He required surgery which required amputating his penis and has been eating Medi-Cal Urinary S/O food since then and, as with all our cats who are prescribed this food, he has never had a recurrence at all!  He is a perfectly happy, healthy and normal cat.

Chazzy shows his gratitude by purring, kneading and cuddling with any human who comes near him.   He lived with 20 other cats, and he got along perfectly well with every single one.  He plays like a little kitten!  He's currently in a foster home awaiting that permanent family home he's been dreaming of for years.  He is a beautiful boy who would really like to have a warm, safe home forever.  His ramblin' days are done!  It's no fun!!  And by the way, he'd be pleased to go to any home - even one with a dog!

On January 28, 2011, "Goochi," just 10 weeks old, came to DunRoamin' from the Bristol area where she was one of three kittens who were feral, cold, hungry and very scared.  They had a terrible amount of parasites, including fleas, ear mites and worms.  All these troubles were quickly addressed.  She was born about December 7, 2010.

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

Even with the terribly cold temperatures, when the lady saw them in her back yard, she left her patio door open so they could come in where it was warm and get some food.  Even as feral as they were, they recognized compassion and came slowly inside.  When the senior citizen would get up to close the door, they'd run back outside.  She finally was able to close the door behind them and they were caught and came to us for help.  Goochi has been waiting for her home for four years now.  She is not a cuddle cat and is not very comfortable around humans but is happy to have the company of other cats and to have a warm and safe home with someone to watch over her.

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

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

"Barbarossa" came to DunRoamin' on June 24, 2012 from the Debec area where he was apparently abandoned.  Some people tried to catch him for several days because he appeared to have an injured hind leg and was drooling badly.  He was eventually live trapped.  Barbarossa was an intact male who was born about June 15, 2010.

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

Barbarossa's injuries were treated, and he was neutered.  He also had to have teeth removed, but he's fine now.  On August 13, 2013 he went to a wonderful foster home with the best people ever!   Now he's back at DunRoamin' and we're hoping he and his best friend Dizzy can find a new home together very soon.  They are both on a diet of Medi-Cal Urinary S/O food.

"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 closed 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 had developed a bladder infection, but became perfectly healthy again in a short period of time thanks to a tiny bit of medication which solved her problem quickly.

Dizzy was a little bit timid at first, 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 lived a life of luxury.  They are currently back at DunRoamin' awaiting a home.  Dizzy is currently eating a diet of Medi-Cal Urinary S/O food.

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

Gail was born about September 15, 2011 and although she's a little timid, she's come a long way in showing that she'll easily be an affectionate companion.  She is fostered by some amazing supporters in West Florenceville.  Thank you so much, Rod and Judy!  It makes all the difference in the world to her!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Frosty" came to us on December 19, 2013. She was found on the Hartland bridge all by herself and she needed help.  She is a beautiful buff-coloured torti estimated to have been born sometime in 2004.

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

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

"Mrs Claws" came to DunRoamin' on the afternoon of the day before Christmas, 2013.  She had a collar embedded in her flesh under her right front leg.  She had obviously tried to get out of the collar but her leg had gotten caught.  This would have been very uncomfortable and painful for her, especially trying to survive in this cold winter weather on her own.  She was born about December 25, 2012.

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

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

Bristle

Pounce

"Pounce," "Bristle," Blitz and Breeze came to us on January 9, 2014  from the Perth-Andover area and are loving cats who have been through a lot.  Pounce and Breeze are males, Blitz and Bristle are females.  They were born about January 1, 2013.  They were all scared and confused, but became accepting of love, hugs and pats.  Bristle is easily the most outgoing of the group and she loves to be patted, picked up and cuddled. 

Breeze was the first of the siblings to get a home in August, 2014.  Blitz was adopted on January 13, 2015.  Pounce (black) and Bristle (tabby) are still waiting after more than two full years!  They are very attached to each other and they also love kittens.  If there are kittens in the room, they'll be cuddling with them.  Please come meet these two beautiful cats..

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

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

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

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

Fontaine's shyness has moved on and she is happy to live with a dozen other cats with whom she gets along royally.  She loves to play and likes lots of attention and affection.  She is best friends with Goochi with whom she loves to cuddle and sleep (although Goochi steals most of her bed!)  She enjoys spending time on her exercise wheel - you can see a video of it on DunRoamin's Facebook page!

"Ezra" originally came to us on April 12, 2014 from Florenceville where he had a very serious urinary tract infection.  He had become blocked and required serious medical intervention in order to save him.  His owners were unable to undertake the expense of his medical care so he became a ward of DunRoamin'.  He easily overcame his infection and now eats Medi-Cal Urinary S/O food which will ensure he will never become blocked again.  He was adopted on December 8, 2014 but did not get along with another pet in the home so he was returned to us on January 2, 2015.  He thought he would prefer to be an "only" cat in the household because he loves all the attention for himself, but he currently lives with five cats and is doing just fine!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Chyler" and her sisters Bliss and Trickle all came to DunRoamin' on November 18, 2015 from Grand Falls, NB.  The people who had them requested that they be euthanized because they were too wild.  These three little girls were only about three  and a half months old, born about August 1, 2015.

All three were in decent health, although they were slightly skinny and had fleas.  Their parasites were treated and they got lots of healthy food so they could put on some weight.  They were initially scared, but a little love and compassion have gone a long way and they now realize they are among friends.  As of January 6, 2016, they cuddle, purr and play with the best of them.  They particularly like cuddling with other cats.

Day 1


Day 21

"Walter Chestnut" came to us on December 4, 2015 from Hartland where he had been found laying in a snowbank on the side of the road.  He was not moving.

Walter was taken to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic for help.  He was an intact male who was emaciated, dehydrated, had ear mites and had abrasions to his ears from scratching due to the itchiness and extreme discomfort the earmites had caused.  He also had infection in his eyes and both lower eyelids had entropion, a condition in which the eyelid is folded inward against the eye, resulting in possible corneal ulceration or perforation.  He underwent surgery to fix this problem and did very well.  He's put on a little weight and has realized that life is worth living again!  His eyes are perfect - no problem at all!  What a lucky little boy!

Walter is a lovely little boy.  He is very grateful to have a soft warm bed, a safe place to recover, lots of food and to be rid of the pain he must have experienced for way too long a time.  He has come a very long way and is now much better.  He hopes for a new home very soon.  He is currently housed with four other cat friends with whom he gets along very well.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"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 about three days without food or water.

Cyprus is being cared for and we'll update on her condition as soon as we know.  She has been reunited with her babies and they're happy to be a family again, especially now that they have the love and care of someone who will ensure they are healthy and happy.  Stay tuned!

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

Update:  as of 11 pm, April 17, 2016, Cyprus is happily nursing her babies who are very happy and content to have her back.  They love their momma!  Cyprus is not fond of dogs and is quite timid, but she loves a chin scratch and her foster mom even had her kneading a bit tonight!  She's obviously grateful for a warm, safe place and to be reunited with her family.  Thanks again to their foster mother - another great save!!

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

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

Lief (pronounced "Life") was initially scared but has come a very long way.  He is now only slightly hesitant to be picked up, but once he's in your arms, he hums and purrs and kneads, happy to be held and cuddled.  He is getting over his hesitation about new people and he loves his team of servants!  He was born about July 29, 2015, so he hopes to have a new home as a present for his birthday..


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


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

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

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

Siegas


Look at me now!!

Photo compliments of Mandy Hamilton

On July 2, 2016, DunRoamin' accepted three young cats who had been rescued by the NB SPCA. "Siegas," a little grey tabby girl, was born about July 1, 2015.  Her two male friends, Aurele and Yanic, were born about July 1, 2013.  Both Aurele and Yanic were eventually adopted.

All three cats were in dire need of medical attention.  All were very thin - you could feel nothing but fur and bones when patting them.  They all had ear mites, were dehydrated and had varying degrees of conjunctivitis (inflammation of the eyelid and moist tissues of the eye) which displayed in redness, irritation and swelling.  They also had sinusitis (inflammation of the nasal passages) which displayed in a raspy and noisy breathing pattern, especially for Yanic, who was adopted on October 23, 2016.  They also had sneezing fits which discharged large amounts of mucus.

All three cats also had dental issues.  Siegas had missing and loose incisors.  Aurele and Yanic had broken and infected teeth which required dental surgery - their teeth were in such bad shape that all must be extracted.  Thanks to Dr Monteith at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic, these cats immediately began medical treatment which included antibiotics to combat infection and prescription food to relieve diarrhea.  They will stay under her care until they have attained a healthy weight, undergone dental surgery and their infections are cured.  When healthy enough, they will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and begin the adoption process to find safe and loving homes.

Siegas was initially timid, scared and very unsure of us but was quickly eating and sleeping well.  She easily trusts us now and realizes she is safe forever.  Once she knows you, she's great, although it may take a couple of minutes to assess you to ensure you'll love her (how could anyone not??)  The boys, Aurele and Yanic, were totally exhausted.  They slept almost constantly, waking only to eat and drink, then curled up together again for many more hours of rest.  This may be the only time in a very long time they have been safe, warm, had a good supply of food in their belly and could sleep without pain, discomfort or fear of predators.  They both appear to be trusting and grateful - both purr when patted, and they also sometimes purr while sound asleep - that says so much.

   

Yanic (adopted 23 Oct 16), Siegas & Aurele (adopted 27 Nov 16)- 11 Aug 16  

All three cats are beautiful, friendly beings who love their caregivers. They wish for nothing more now than a home where they will be loved and allowed to show their gratitude daily for the new life they have been given.  We hope they'll forget their old one.  Since Yanic and Aurele have their own permanent homes, Siegas is fortunate enough to be fostered in Aurele's new permanent home until she can find a home of her own.  Or maybe she'll get to stay there!  Stay tuned!

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

"Wyman" came to DunRoamin' on the evening of September 3, 2016 from Beechwood where he had appeared on the doorstep of a lady about eight hours previously.  He appeared very ill but she was unable to care for him.  Wyman was assessed by our vet who determined the following: 

- he was born about March 1, 2015;
- he was dehydrated, cold and thin;
- he had ulcers on his tongue which were painful and caused difficulty in eating;
- he had wounds on all four feet; and
- he was in kidney failure. 

Wyman began treatment immediately for all his medical problems.  We hope he will be capable of overcoming these obstacles with the assistance of his new best friends who will give him the best of care.  As of Sunday, September 4, he's still holding his own.  We will keep you up to date.

UPDATE:  (October 18, 2016)  Wyman is doing well.  He is on a Renal diet and still has to have fluids, but we're hoping that won't be for very much longer.  We'll check in again in about a month, but he purrs, head butts and meets us at the door of his kennel.  He's much closer to being out of the woods, and he can certainly see the beautiful sky!  Unfortunately, he has tested positive for FIV, but he can deal with that, too, no problem!  Please read below.

UPDATE (November 24, 2016)  Wyman's blood panels show great progressl!  He is doing exceptionally well and his subcutaneous fluids may easily be cut during the next few weeks as (fingers crossed) he may not need extra fluids.  We'll do frequent follow-ups and make sure that he continues to do as well as he's doing, but . . . WE'RE SO EXCITED!!!  And he might even have a home!!!  YAHOOOOOO !!!

** 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.

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

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

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

Look at me now!!

"Gibby" came to DunRoamin' on September 21, 2016 from Red Rapids, NB, where she had been found all alone on the side of the road.  She required medical attention and was unowned, so was therefore accepted by DunRoamin' so that her medical needs could be addressed.  She was born about July 27, 2016.

Assessment by her vet revealed that her left hind femur was broken, as was her pelvis - she may have been struck by a vehicle.  She also had fleas and earmites and was very hungry - maybe she'd been there for a while.

Gibby has recovered well under professional care at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  She is a very sweet and gentle little girl and she's doing very well.  She purrs up a storm and loves to be patted and cuddled.  As of October 18, 2016, she's doing just great!  Another couple weeks of cage rest and she'll be ready to go.  She hopes to meet her new family soon.

Day 35
Look at me now!!

On the evening of September 23, 2016, "Astra" and her three siblings came to us who were born three days earlier, on September 20th.  Their mom was no longer around, perhaps the victim of foxes in the area, as she was a stray living near a farm.  Kind rescuers saw the kittens needed help. 

Two boys (Twilight and Kade) and two girls (Astra and Lando), the little ones were in dire straits.  Probably not having had nutrition in a couple of days, they were very hungry.  Their body temperatures were also low and they needed a heated environment.  They also had not peed or pooped, perhaps for as long as two or three days.

Sadly, Twilight, Kade and Lando were unable to survive.  Astra is doing well and is under the care of a loving, dedicated and compassionate vet tech to whom she owes everything.  She just needs to put her efforts into growing big and strong, which she is proving very good at doing!  She has every form of assistance with which she can be provided - we're sure she'll do fine.  She's doing better every day!

"Kalijah" came to us on the morning of September 24, 2016 from the Newburg area where she had been noticed laying on the side of the road with one foot sticking straight out.  Her vet diagnosed her as having the right side of her pelvis broken and her right ankle badly dislocated.  With lots of rest, her pelvis will hopefully heal well on its own.  Her ankle has been straightened and bandaged.  She is very fortunate to have been found and brought to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where the expertise she requires abounds.

Kalijah was scared but she realized she was safe and always had a full belly, so she warmed up to us quite quickly.  She is a beautifully-coloured little girl who was born about June 24, 2016.  She was treated for fleas and will be vaccinated and spayed.  She purrs easily and is hoping for a home where she can have lots of attention and hugs.  Her leg has healed really well and she's anxious to live in a home with a loving 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 unwilling to keep or care for them.  There had originally been four, but one had gotten away.  No one was willing to help these three.  Even though it was late at night, a concerned DunRoamin' volunteer went to pick up the remaining three kittens, made sure they had food and were safe and warm overnight, then delivered them to veterinary care the next day.  This same person has set a live trap which she checks frequently in the hope of finding the fourth kitten - it's cold and lonely out there at night.  Thank you so much - these little ones are safe because of you.  All three were born about May 28, 2016.  They have been spayed, vaccinated, tested for FeLV and FIV and treated for all parasites.

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

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

"Cory Matthews" came to us when he was abandoned in a Humpty Dumpty box at the front door of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic and found when staff opened at 8 am, September 28, 2016.  He was born about July 27, 2016 and is healthy, although he was very cold - just another unwanted kitten left for someone else to care for. 

Cory is a sweet little boy.  He loves people, loves to cuddle and be held, loves to play - he loves EVERYTHING!  Please come meet him.  He can't wait to have his very own family!

PLEASE SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PETS

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

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


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

"Torch" came to us from Perth-Andover on October 11, 2016 from the Perth-Andover area where he was a lone stray with no one to feed, shelter or care for him.  Someone finally realized his plight and brought him for help.  He was born about October 11, 2014.

Torch is a beautiful orange and white tomcat.  He had fleas but was in otherwise good health.  He is very much a cuddle cat who is happy to be indoors, fed and loved.  He has been neutered, tested for FIV and FeLV and vaccinated.  He is grateful to the lady who brought him and also for the more-than-generous donation that she brought to help pay for his requirements and the needs of the many to come in the future, especially now that the cold weather is upon us.  Your support and generosity are greatly appreciated by all at DunRoamin'.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Colby is undergoing medical treatment.  He is on antibiotics for his infected neck injury and medications to help clear up his eye irritation.  He has been neutered and will continue to receive all required medical care.  He will be happy to go to a safe and loving home - he deserves it.  It's obviously been a hard go for him.

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

"Drake" came to us on October 26, 2016 from Bristol with his friends Sinclair and Fusion (see below) after his owner passed away and he had no one to care for him.  He was born about June 14, 2006.  Sinclair had fleas, earmites and was overweight.  He was already neutered.  He has been vaccinated, his parasites have been treated and he has been placed on a special diet of Royal Canin Calorie Control food to help him lose weight and become healthy again.

Drake is very friendly and laid back.  He loves everyone he meets and loves to be patted, scratched and talked to.  He is definitely a purrer and would love to have a home, especially if one or both of his siblings could join him for the time they have left!  He's ten, which definitely makes him a senior, but he has SOOOOO much to give!  Please come meet him.

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

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

Sinclair is the most scared of his two friends, but we're sure that he'll be fine, especially with his friend Drake at his side who is very relaxed and calm.

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

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

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

Fusion is somewhat timid, but is coming along fine.  He lives with five other cats who also eat Royal Canin Urinary S/O food and he's learning to like them all very quickly!

"Ghoul" came to DunRoamin' on Hallowe'en evening, 2016 from the Woodstock area.  He had been surrendered to the NB SPCA when his owner moved away and couldn't take him along.  Euthanization became an option.  He was only six months old - had barely even begun his life.

Ghoul was born about May 1, 2016 and has double paws on his front feet.  He is friendly, loving, affectionate and happy to be alive.  Ghoul tested positive for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV), so he'd like to be an only cat or live with another FeLV-positive cat if at all possible.  Please read about FeLV here.  Ghoul has been neutered and will receive full vaccines and all required parasite control, as do all DunRoamin' cats.  He'd welcome a safe, warm and loving home.  Please drop in and meet him.

UPDATE - Dec 2, 2016:  Ghoul's personality is coming through loud and clear!  He is loving, affectionate, playful - all the things that we love in our kitties!  He is still just a kitten and has all those beautiful kitten traits.  He is perfectly healthy - he'd like to live with another FeLV cat or maybe just as an only cat.  He (and we!) guarantee that he'll be the best thing you've done if you would like to have him join your family!  He'd love to have a home for Christmas!

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

Allegra has a degloving injury (the skin has been torn off her tail) which was infected.  Due to the extent of the injury, Allegra's tail had to be amputated.  She is now back to being the happy, healthy little girl she should be.  She's very happy to have a soft bed, a towel ring, lots of food and good friends to take good care of her.  Now, if she could just get a permanent and loving home . . .  Yeah.  That's all she needs now.  Maybe for Christmas . . .?

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


Peace!

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

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

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

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

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

Burnett is friendly, laid back and will be fully vaccinated, spayed and ready for a home by November 30, 2016.  Please come meet her and her kittens.

Thankfully, the kind and supportive staff of the Country Store offered to foster and care for these little ones.  Flynn was born about August 1, 2016, so was not even four months old - way too young to be left on his own.  He was perfectly healthy and sociable, so both he and his siblings belonged to someone at some point in the very recent past.  It's sad that they were abandoned at such a tender age.  We thank Bill Groves and his staff at the Carleton Co-Op Country Store for stepping up, taking responsibility and giving this family the care they need and deserve.

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

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

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

If you're able to help these little guys in any way, donations are gratefully accepted here or at our Rescue Christmas For Our Rescues fund-raising page.  Thank you.

"Dobie" came to DunRoamin' on Novmber 14, 2016 from the Victoria County SPCA.  He had originally been surrendered there when he was found in the Plaster Rock area.  He was in serious medical trouble and the SPCA needed our help to give him a chance at life.   

Dobie was not in good shape.  His injuries were not recent and it's a wonder he had survived.  He had a diaphragmatic hernia - basically a hole in the wall separating his chest from his abdomen.  His organs that should normally be in his abdomen had been forced through the hole in his diaphragm and were now in his chest, placing an enormous amount of pressure on his lungs.  He had a very hard time breathing and was in serious distress.  His vet gave him a 50/50 chance at survival on initial assessment, but her skills enabled him to survive.  His surgery was successful to replace his organs where they belong and close the hole.  Now, he just needs time to heal and recover from such a terrible ordeal.  He was born about November 14, 2014.

Dobie eats like he's not sure there will ever be food again.  Perhaps there has not been food available to him, or perhaps, due to his condition, he was just not physically capable of consuming the food and having his body process it properly because of his serious and severe medical issues.  He is now!!

He is extremely grateful to the gentleman who rescued him and especially to his vet who has changed his world.  Stay tuned - we'll keep you up to date on his progress.  In the meantime, donations toward the care required for his recovery are gratefully accepted by clicking here or by helping us Rescue Christmas For Our Rescues by donating here.  Thank you so much for helping us change the lives of these beautiful animals!  Dobie hopes to have a home for Christmas.


Thanks to my vet, LOOK AT ME NOW!!

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

Lemur is the 200th stray we have accepted this year.  Our resources are maxed out, including space, volunteers, foster homes and funding.  If you're able to help these little guys in any way, donations are gratefully accepted here or at our Rescue Christmas For Our Rescues fund-raising page.  Thanks to Mandy for setting this up, all her time spent doing administration, fostering and supporting our staff and strays on a daily basis.  You are sincerely appreciated.

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

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

Examination by his vet revealed along with a laceration on his foot and a hole in his groin, his hip was broken in two places which required surgery.  His femoral head was removed and he now has both pins and wire in his hip to help stabilize the joint and help him get back to perfection!  Kendrick is working very hard to get better - he hopes he can be well enough to have a home for Christmas, and he's well on his way to that goal!  If you're interested in helping with his medical care, donations are gratefully accepted here or at our Rescue Christmas For Our Rescues fund-raising page.  Come meet him!  Perhaps he'd like to live with you as a Christmas present??

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

Abner was born about April 1, 2012 and is a grey tabby with a most exceptionally loving personality.  He purrs, headbutts and kneads constantly if a human is handly.  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 or at our Rescue Christmas For Our Rescues fund-raising page.

"Dmitri" came to DunRoamin' from the Perth-Andover area on November 17, 2016.  He was dehydrated, skinny, had fleas, worms, a bladder infection, was thirsty, hungry and matted.  He was born about November 17, 2004.  His vet determined that he is diabetic and he is currently taking insulin, but maybe that will change as he becomes healthier.

Dmitri is the 203rd stray we have accepted this year and our resources are running low.  In order to care for him and his friends, we require volunteers, foster homes and most especially financial support to ensure they receive the care they require.   If you're able to help these little guys in any way, donations are gratefully accepted here or at our Rescue Christmas For Our Rescues fund-raising page.  Thanks, Mandy, for organizing this for these four-legged beauties.

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

Somerset is receiving the medical, social and loving attention that he deserves.  We will keep you up to date as we receive updates on his medical status.  Right now, he's grateful to be warm, fed and have servants while he heals.  Next step:  a loving home and family for Christmas.  If you're able to help us help these little guys in any way, donations are gratefully accepted here or at our Rescue Christmas For Our Rescues fund-raising page.  Thanks, Mandy, for organizing this for these four-legged beauties.  We are also grateful for our volunteers and foster homes - please check out our pages.

"Hampton" came to DunRoamin' on the morning of November 21, 2016 after having been found on the road all alone the night before.  He was born about October 1, 2016. 

Hampton was thin, hungry, cold, scared and had severe swelling of both eyelids.  He had a corneal ulcer on his right eye and a sore throat.  He was not in good shape and is fortunate he was found and brought for help.

Hampton is currently under medical care and will continue there until he is healthy enough to join us.  He is grateful for the medication, food and warm, safe place to which he has been brought.  His eyes are improving and we're hoping the ulcer on his right eye will get better very soon.  We'll keep you up to date.  Donations to help with his care are gratefully accepted.  He deserves a nice Christmas and we're hoping he'll be healthy enough to be the recipient of a wonderful new home by then.

If you're able to help us help these little guys in any way, donations are gratefully accepted here or at our Rescue Christmas For Our Rescues fund-raising page.  Thanks, Mandy, for organizing this for our four-legged beauties.  We are also grateful for our volunteers and foster homes - please check out our pages.

Meet "Sonic."  He came to us on November 23, 2016 from Grand Falls as a rescue from the SPCA.  They were unable to help him, so he came to us.    Sonic was diagnosed with ear mites, fleas and he was very thin.  In addition, his left front leg was paralyzed and he had sustained a partial traumatic amputation of his tail.  He's just a baby, born about September 8, 2016. 

We're not sure how this happened, but we are sure he's now getting the very best of medical care from Dr Monteith at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  He's already purring up a storm, now that he's warm, safe, has professional and compassionate vet care, pain medication and a full belly.  His purr is exceptionally loud and rough, making him sound like a little ungreased freight train!!  He is adorable and we know that with the care he is getting, he has the best possible chance at recovery. 

We'll keep you up to date on his prognosis as soon as we learn more.  In the meantime, please keep him and all his 60+ friends who have come in during the last two months in your prayers.  They all need help and we're grateful for the donors and volunteers who allow us to continue to help them.  Donations to help with his care will be gratefully accepted - please check out donation options here or at our Rescue Christmas For Our Rescues fund-raising page  Sonic is currently fostered by a very generous supporter.  We hope he'll be well soon and we thank her for taking such good care of him while he waits and hopes for a family for Christmas.  We recently learned that Sonic will require his left front leg to be amputated as the damage is too severe to allow his leg to work.  That surgery will take place during the week of December 12, 2016.  We'll keep you up to date.
