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

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

Even with the terribly cold temperatures, when the lady saw them in her back yard, she left her patio door open so they could come in where it was warm and have the benefit of plenty of food.  Even as feral as they were, they recognized compassion and came slowly inside.  When the senior citizen would get up to close the door, they'd run back outside.  She finally was able to close the door behind them and they came to us for help.  Goochi has been waiting for her home for eight years now.  She 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.  Gooch has a family with DunRoamin' - she's loved and will always be cared for.

"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 she was a little timid.  She is not a social cat and takes some time to adjust but has come a long way from when she was rescued.  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 is not a fan of dogs and should not live in a home with canines!  He would love to be one of our Cats for Seniors cats again - he loves to sit and cuddle and spend time with a human to whom he will totally dedicate himself.  He is currently in a foster home but hopes for a permanent home of his own very soon.

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

Sam was born about June, 2007.  He was very skinny although he's eaten a lot of food and put on some weight since he came for help.  He was also very lethargic and was diagnosed as having epilepsy.  He's a really nice boy who can use some extra loving from a family who understands his needs.  He's currently doing perfectly well on his medication that greatly reduces the number of seizures and he is happy to take his medication with no complaints whatsoever.  He's very happy and affectionate and he's more than loving.  He likes to play with other cats and loves dogs too!   He's perfect!  You can meet him by visiting DunRoamin' - he's our greeter in our front office!

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

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

"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 now eats 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 Currie 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 ear mites 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 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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Please read about FIV here.


Look at me now!!

"Xavier" came to DunRoamin' on July 5, 2017 from Morrell Siding where he had been living for about a year.  He had displayed what had appeared to be an injury to his hind end the previous week.   He was surrendered to DunRoamin' so that he could obtain the medical care he required.  Xavier was born about February 14, 2014. 

Xavier was examined and it was learned that he had sustained two hairline fractures to his pelvis and one to his spine, perhaps from being struck by a vehicle.  He was in obvious pain.  His tail was painful and he preferred not to move it, but he was able to pee and poop on his own.  Xavier was given medication for the pain and received all required care, including lots of kennel rest, to ensure that he healed well.  He is anxious to become a family member of some nice family who will keep him indoors and safe.  He had already been neutered and is now vaccinated, tested for FeLV and FIV.  He has received acupuncture and chiropractic treatment to help him heal.  He is a very lucky boy to have this second chance and we're very grateful!!

Update (May 10, 2018):  Xavier's foster mother reports that he is really friendly and loves to wrestle and play with other cats.  He loves his foster home.  He experienced some problems in December, but his vet tech foster mother has done wonders with his recovery . . . and he SO loves her!

He hopes for a permanent family of his own very soon.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Ginny" came to us on January 31, 2019 from the NB SPCA along with 17 other cats.  She was born about January 31, 2018.  Because Ginny came from a location where Feline Leukemia had been found in other cats, she was segregated and retested on March 18, 2019 to ensure she did not have that disease.  Her test showed that she was negative!  Congratulations!

Ginny is a beautiful tabby who cannot wait to have her own home.  She would like to have a home where she'll have a feline sister or brother, but she'll be grateful for any family who will love her the way she deserves to be loved!  She is currently in a foster home where she is learning to not be as timid of people and is doing well.   As you can see by the photo below, she loves to lay in the sun!  Please come meet her!  Doesn't like to be picked up but will sit beside you.  She doesn't like changes in routine, but once she's settled in, she's in!!  She is independent, but is also a big fan of belly rubs!

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

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

Hatfield is a bit timid, but he's learned very quickly that he's safe and sound and that he has many servants who will ensure he has everything he'll need!  He just needs a little more time to come around, and he's doing very well.  Please come meet him!

Sagittarius

 

"Chiffon" returned to us on February 20, 2019 from Plaster Rock where she had been adopted in 2012.  She had been a very well-loved cat in her home, but her family was moving into a special care home and was no longer able to care for her, so she returned to us.

Chiffon is a healthy, happy little girl who is diabetic.  She requires an injection of insulin each morning and evening (which she takes very easily) and eats a diabetic diet, but this is no big deal for her or for her humans and it's inexpensive, so no worries!  She was born about July 25, 2010 and is a very loving, very affectionate and a very happy girl.  She is currently in a foster home with her friends in Bath, but looks forward to having a permanent home very soon.

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

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

Please read about FIV here.

"Bama" came to us on April 10, 2019 from the Woodstock area.  He had begun to urinate inappropriately and as his family was unable to care for him, his options were limited.  He was born about September 23, 2009.  Bama was declawed before he came to us.

Bama is currently staying with us and shares his space with any other cats who also require a diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food.  He was initially timid, but scratch his back and it takes him all of five whole seconds to be yours!  He's a sweet boy!  He's up to date on his vaccines and is anxious to join a family again.  As long as he eats his Royal Canin Urinary S/O food only, he'll be 100% good!  We've had dozens of cats on this diet and have not ever had a single recurrence!  Bama is looking forward to having a loving family - he really does deserve it.

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

Biggie

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

Rosamundo, Rochester and Eyre were only a couple of days old and required medical intervention.  They are fostered by a veterinarian and Rochester requires individual round-the-clock medical care to ensure he survives.  We are very grateful to the staff of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic for their efforts and assistance in  caring for these beautiful cats. Bronte and her son, Rosamundo, are very bonded and would love to be adopted together.  Bronte is a little nervous of dogs, so would prefer a home without dogs.  She is playful, loving and energetic.   She'd like to thank her foster families for all they've done for her.  She can't wait to go to a home!  As of October 7, 2019, she was fostered with a wonderful lady in Bath along with her son, Rosamundo (see below). Thank you!!

On November 30, 2019, Rosamundo and his mom went to stay with friends at The Purrfect Cup Cat Cafe in Two Nations Crossing, Fredericton, NB.  Stop in and visit!  The coffee is fantastic and the staff is amazing!  And the cats will love to see you!!

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

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

"Paloma," a beautiful calico, came to us from the Oakland area on June 10, 2019 where approximately 20 cats were living.  Many had significant upper respiratory infections and require much medical intervention.  Paloma was born about June 10, 2017 and had moderate stomatitis, ear mites, had been exposed to fleas and upper respiratory infection and required dental care.

Paloma is a beautiful little girl who is hoping for a nice, quiet, loving and affectionate family that she might join for the rest of her life.  She's never been without feline friends, as far as we know, so she'd probably be happier with another cat friend.  Paloma is currently on medication which she takes daily, but she's fine with it!

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

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

Paloma was the 30th stray accepted by DunRoamin' in the first ten days of June 2019

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

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

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

Look at me now!!

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

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

Babbs has recently been diagnosed with kidney failure, so she will spend her remaining time with us being spoiled rotten!  She is a sweet little girl who deserves all the love and attention she can get!

"Oggy" came to us on June 25, 2019.  He was severely emaciated, had ulcers on both eyes and he was matted to the point that when he was shaved his fur came off in one large, thick, dirty piece.  He had multiple pelvic fractures, he was anemic and has had some recent liver trauma.  It is most likely he had been struck by a car.  In addition to all these woes, Oggy had entropion, a condition in which the eyelashes curve inward toward the eyeball and scratch it each time he blinks.  This condition was quicklyrectified by his new vet friend.  He received the best of medical care and ate as if he hadn't eaten in a very long time (which was probably accurate).

On July 17, 2019, Oggy underwent surgery to repair his broken bones.  His left hind leg required amputation, but he's healthy, strong and doing well.  He's grateful for all the love and care he's received - he doesn't want to think about what would have happened had he not been rescued.  Neither do we.

Oggy is a social eater.   He loves his caregivers and is very happy to be warm, safe, pain-free and have a full belly and friends to care for him.   He lived at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic with his friend Seuss, but now that Seuss has found a home, he's returned to us to find one of his very own.  Oggy takes Lactulose daily to ensure his bowels work properly, but is otherwise perfectly perfect!  He loves to play, be patted and just be the best company anyone could possibly want!  He is anxious to join a permanent family very soon.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Mordecai" came to DunRoamin' on November 15, 2019 from Perth-Andover where he had been a stray who had been hanging around for about a year.  Although people were feeding him at times, he had no one to care for him.  He had recently been noticed to be matted and have a hard time eating.

Mordecai was examined by his new vet and found to be in poor shape.  He tested positive for FIV and had moderate muscle wasting in much of his body.  He was dehydrated, matted, had ear mites and such severe dental disease that all his teeth had to be removed as roots were exposed, several were abscessed and many were already missing.   We've all had a toothache, but that must have HURT!

Mordecai was already neutered and was born about November 15, 2008.  We hope to make the remainder of his life much more enjoyable than what he has obviously already been through.  All help will be greatly appreciated.  As of June 30, he is a happy, loving, talkative little boy who loves company and he's doing well!

** FIV is contagious to other cats through blood and saliva.  It is reasonably difficult to spread, however, and now believed to be mostly spread through deep bite wounds.  Obviously it would be ideal if FIV-positive cats only lived with other FIV-positive cats, but currently some of the large rescue centers in the US have been studying multi-cat households with FIV-positive cats living with FIV-negative cats and have found the risk to the non-FIV cats to be very small, assuming that the cats are all spayed/neutered and used to living in groups (ie:  not as likely to fight).  We currently have FIV+ cats living with FIV- cats in foster homes and have experienced no difficulty whatsoever.

Please read about FIV here.

"Edsel" came to us from the Woodstock area on November 25, 2019 where he had been a stray who had been hanging around for about four days.  He was reported to have upper respiratory infection.

Edsel was examined by his new vet who diagnosed the following in this little boy:

- he was emaciated (starving);
- he was dehydrated;
- he had a heart murmur;
- his few remaining teeth were very badly infected and required extraction;
- he was infested with ear mites;
- he may have a kidney infection;
- he was not neutered; and
- he tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) (see below).

Edsel was not in good shape, but has an amazing personality.  He is loving and affectionate and obviously grateful for the medical care he is receiving.  He was neutered and his remaining teeth were extracted and we'll see how he does with eating now that this part of his problem has been removed.  We'll deal with the rest as soon as he's strong enough.

Edsel has a ways to go, but he's in the right place.  He will receive everything he requires, including intensive medical care, fluids, medications, nutritious food and, finally for him:  a warm, soft bed and care by people who treat him with love and respect.  We hope that he can regain his strength and stamina and be adopted to a home where he will receive what he deserves - love and family.

Donations are gratefully accepted to help this little guy with all the medical care he will need to become healthy again.  He is older - maybe eight or nine, but we'll have a better idea when he has been brought back to better physical condition.  He deserves a warm, loving home for the remainder of his life so he can know all the things that animals deserve to have, and not have to suffer another day.  His personality and attitude tell us that he believes in the good people who help him and we're going to show him he's right.

UPDATE:  On December 12, 2019, we learned that Edsel's condition will not improve.  His kidney function is not great and his heart murmur will not get better, but right now he is a happy and relatively healthy little boy who has several weeks or months to enjoy the good fortune of having been rescued from his troubles. 

On December 17, 2019, he met a very nice lady who offered to give him love, a home and family for his last months.  He will require some medications and perhaps some fluids on occasion but for now he is happy to be warm, fed, pain-free and loved.  What more could anyone ask?  We thank his foster mother for taking him in and making the last weeks of his life exactly what he has deserved all along.  As of June 30, it's been more than six months so far and he's doing well!  What a difference a loving family makes!!

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

Atlas is a very nice boy who was immediately assessed by his new vet friend.  Among other things, he had enlarged lymph nodes and inflammation and has since been diagnosed with irritable bowl disorder.  He is getting the best of care from Dr Haines at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  He has had some issues trying to put on weight but he's now maintaining and may even decide to put on a few ounces!.  He will be vaccinated as soon as he is healthy enough to receive them.  Atlas is currently on medication and prescription food. 

Atlas is very friendly, loving and affectionate.  He is grateful for the care of his new vet friend who checks in on him frequently.  His greatest wish is for a home where he can be spoiled, even if he has to take a little medication daily - it's well worth it, and so is he!!

"Purrtato" (adopted February 26, 2020) came to DunRoamin' on December 30, and represented the 295th stray accepted by DunRoamin' in 2019. 

Our 2019 intake of 295 cats and dogs exceeds our all-time record of intakes in a single year (291 in 2014).  We also exceeded our all-time record for adoptions in a single year - 266 (265 in 2014).

We would like to thank each and every person who has made it possible for us to care for these beautiful strays, including our employees, board members, veterinarians, veterinary technicians, volunteers, rescuers, donors, foster families, fund raisers, adopters and supporters of all kinds.  We are grateful for the opportunity to help these little ones become valuable and beloved members of our families.  Thank you.

"Randall" originally came to DunRoamin' on February 7, 2012 from Woodstock where he had been a stray who had been in the area for about five years.  On this date, he was noticed to be dragging himself along the ground and obviously needed medical care which no one could provide, so he came to us.  Randall was born sometime in 2005.

Randall was diagnosed as having a fused lumbar and infection in his back, he was dehydrated and he also tested positive for FIV (please read below).  He was treated for his injuries and was soon back in health.  On July 16, 2012, Randall joined our Cats For Seniors program and lived happily in Woodstock with his beloved human until she was no longer able to care for him.  He returned to DunRoamin' on February 14, 2020 where he now lives with his new FIV+ friend, Mordecai.  They are both beautiful boys who would love to have a home together.  He is a healthy, happy and loving little boy who would SO enjoy a  loving home for his remaining years.  Please come meet him.

Look at me now!!

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

Harold was born about March 13, 2015.  He was very much underweight, had marked stomatitis (infected teeth) which means he needs all his teeth removed, and had hair loss on his back end.  His ears show some "character" as well.  This little boy needed help.  He is currently on antibiotics and pain medication.

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

Harold has undergone dental surgery and will be provided with full vaccines, lots of nutritious food and parasite control.  Donations to help with his recovery are appreciated.  As of April 11, 2020, he is under the care of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic as he was not feeling well.  He still needs to put on some weight, but he is still a hard hitter when it comes to affection - he LOVES to both get and receive it!

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

"Tulsa" came to DunRoamin' from Johnville on March 19, 2020.  He had been dropped off at a home in January and had been living in their bathroom since, but had been having watery diarrhea and needed medical attention which his rescuer was unable to provide.  Tulsa was born about March 19, 2013, so is about seven years old.

Examination by his new vet revealed that he was already neutered, had a good body condition, had tartar and gum issues on his teeth that will require cleaning and some extractions.  He will start his vaccine routine immediately and once his diarrhea and teeth are addressed, will be ready for a home.

Tulsa was not a happy boy when he came to us, but he realized quickly that he's with friends and is happy to receive the love and care he's now learning about.  Once his diarrhea is cleared up and his mouth is attended to, he'll be anxious to join his very own loving family.  He has had his dental surgery and his mouth is doing well - we just need to get his diarrhea under control and he'll be good to go!  He can't wait!!

"Benji" came to us on June 2, 2020 from Centreville where his owner could no longer care for him.  He has hyperthyroidism which requires medication daily, which he accepts with no complaints at all.  Benji is a very loving and affectionate little boy who also requires a bit of dental work. 

Benji is a sweetheart, but will tell you when you've started to cross a line by putting his teeth on you, but will not bite!  He just wants us to know who's in charge!

"Cassie" came to us on June 8, 2020, from the Arthurette area.  She was drastically overweight, had tartar on her teeth which will require a cleaning in the future and she also had fecal balls stuck to her back end as she was too large to groom herself.  Cassie had been professionally groomed to remove mats in her fur and she seems to be feeling better already.  Cassie was born about June 8, 2011.

Cassie is a sweet little girl.  She settled in with us with no trouble at all and is currently keeping Samuel and Gibbs company in our Reception area.  She is eating a prescribed diet to help her lose weight and become 100% healthy again.  She has begun her vaccine protocol and is eager to meet someone who is willing to cuddle her (she LOVES attention) and commit to her diet to help her reach and maintain a healthy weight.  She loves people, loves other cats and LOVES her new laser light.  She is a very sweet girl and this is the first day of the rest of her life - we'll make it purrfect, Cassie!  It'll take some work, but we'll get there together.

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


Please spay and neuter your pets

Cassie is undergoing a diet to bring her back to perfect health!  Obesity can result in heart problems, joint issues and several other maladies, so we want her to be perfectly healthy!  Please check in on her - we'll report her progress on our Facebook and Instagram pages!

"Barnes" came to DunRoamin' on June 25, 2020, one of 22 cats brought to us by the NB SPCA.    Barnes had ear mites, conjunctivitis, he was lean, and had moderate gingivitis around his lower canine teeth.  He was born about June 1, 2014.

Barnes is a real sweetheart.  He loves his friend, Noble (see below), and they cuddle together constantly.  He is hoping they'll be able to be adopted together once they are both healthy again, neutered, fully vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites.  He has a dream, and he's looking forward to a chance to live it.  Barnes was fostered with his friends in Ashland, NB,  and is now excited to spend some time with his friends at The Purrfect Cup where he hopes to meet the family of his dreams!  Please drop in to The Purrfect Cup - you'll love it there!  The staff, food, drinks and cats are all wonderful!!

"Noble" came to DunRoamin' on June 25, 2020, one of 22 cats brought to us by the NB SPCA.   Barnes had ear mites, conjunctivitis, was lean and had moderate gingivitis around his lower canine teeth.  Noble was born about March 3, 2019.  He is currently battling upper respiratory infection, but he'll soon be fine with all the care he is getting from his new best vet friend.

Noble and his very best friend, Barnes (see above) are very bonded with each other - they cuddle, sleep and play together constantly.  It's his wish (and ours) that they might be adopted together so that they may enjoy a wonderful life that will make them forget about their first few years - they'll have only the best of everything!  As of September 7, 2020, Nobel is fostered with his best friend Barnes (see above) and his new friend Haben (see below).  He's loving it!!

"Maya" came to DunRoamin' on June 8, 2020 from Woodstock where she had been taken in by a person who knew she needed help, but was not able to provide the necessary care.  Maya was born about July 8, 2011.

Maya immediately went to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic for assessment and diagnosis where it was learned that she was lean, had moderate tartar, gingivitis and was diabetic.  It appears she had never been spayed.

Maya is now on a diabetic diet and she requires insulin twice a day - no big deal!  It's very inexpensive and she doesn't mind taking it, not even a little bit!  She is a very sweet little girl who wants only to have a home and family where she will be safe, healthy and loved, so she would love to be part of the Sponsor A Kitty program so someone could help maintain her food and medication.  If you'd like to meet this beautiful little girl, please read below to learn how to do that:

"Furgie" came to us on July 14, 2020, from Fredericton where she had been adopted earlier, but had been peeing and pooping inappropriately, so came back to us.  Since her return, she has displayed no such behaviour, but has been diagnosed as being diabetic.  Furgie is now on 4 units of insulin twice daily and is doing very well indeed.  She is playful, happy, affectionate and loves the other cats with whom she resides. 

Furgie has become one of our greeters at DunRoamin' and takes her job very seriously, although she has so much less to do due to COVID-10 restrictions, but we're all hoping this will pass soon.  Furgie was born about January 31, 2012 and hopes for a retirement home where she can sleep happily on someone's lap - it's the first place she goes if we sit down even for a second!  If you're looking for an attentive, affectionate little cat, she's your girl, and she'll pay back your kindness in spades!!

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

Day 25 - Look at us now!!

"Baliene," "Lowry," "Maldon," "Morton," and "Sherpa" came to us on August 6, 2020 from Woodstock where their mom, Salt, had been part of the Woodstock Community Cat Program.  She had been brought as part of Woodstock's program to spay/neuter unowned cats within the town limits, but had almost immediately given birth to these five little darlings.  Baliene is the only female - she's outnumbered by brothers!  The kittens were born August 6, 2020.Salt was born about August 17, 2018, so she was only about two years old.

Salt's babies will not be ready for homes until at least mid-to-end October and they are grateful to the lady and her family who rescued them and are fostering them while they grow into beautiful, loving pets thanks to the love and care they are now receiving.  We're happy to know their lives now will include medical care, spays/neutesr, vaccines to protect them from illnesses and families to provide them with love and care.  This is yet another reminder to spay/neuter our pets so that more are not born into a world in which there are not enough homes for those already here.  Please spay and neuter.

Salt is taking great care of her babies, but will be happy to have a life of her own!  Once she is spayed, vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites, she will be anxious to go to a home where she can be safe, warm and loved inside and never have to worry about trying to survive in the out-of-doors - it's not easy for a young cat!

"Mr Meowgi" arrived at DunRoamin' on August 12, 2020 from Grafton. He had an injury to his leg which was filled with maggots.  He was born about April 12, 2018.  It was later confirmed that Mr Meowgi also had a broken pelvis which required several weeks of pain medication and kennel rest.

Mr Meowgi received excellent care while he recovered at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  He is eating fine and is happy to have lots of pats, ear scratches and kind, loving words.  He is a very sweet, quiet and loving little boy whom anyone would be very fortunate to have as a companion. 

Mr Meowgi is back with DunRoamin' and no longer requires kennel rest.  He is recovering his ambulatory skills very quickly and is becoming stronger every single day.  He is a sweet little boy who loves people and is anxious to have a permanent home of his very own.

"Boseman" came to us on September 1, 2020 from Woodstock, NB, where he had been found all alone on the side of the road.  He was emaciated, dehydrated and had worms, but he was still a feisty little guy - that's probably why he had survived so long on his own.  He was born about July 1, 2020.

Boseman is full of love, purrs, cuddles and personality.  He eagerly leaps from his kennel into your arms when the door is opened and he can head butt and purr with the best of them.  He is playful and sweet - just ask him!

Boseman stayed in a foster home where his foster mom described him as such a little bundle of energy - he never stops!!  He has a friendly personality with a bit of spunk and when he eventually slows down, he becomes a bit of a cuddle bug.   He occasionally sneaks under the blankets at night, but that doesn't mean he is not in attack mode!  He'll get you if you move around!  He is more of a grazer (eats a small amount several times throughout the day/night).  He is honoured to be named after Chadwick Boseman - the actor who played Marvel's Black Panther who recently passed away after a quiet battle with cancer.  Little Boseman will quietly honour his name and live up to the kindness and huge heart of his name sake.

As of October 26, 2020, Boseman is spending time with his friends (and ours!) at The Purrfect Cup in Fredericton where he hopes to meet the loves of his life and join them in their home forever!  Please drop in for some excellent food, coffee, staff and some pretty amazing cats!  You'll love it there!

"Virgo," Libra, Scorpio and Taurus came to us on September 2, 2020 along with their mom Gemini (see above) and her sister Sagittarius (see above).   They were born about August 1, 2020, so were only about four weeks old.  Each of these little ones has a heart murmur right now, but we're hoping they will outgrow it soon as often happens.

Virgo and Libra are little girls and Scorpio and Taurus are little boys.  They, along with their mom and aunt, are very grateful to be fostered by our friends in Lindsay, NB.  Thank you SO much for giving these little ones a home and family until they are old enough to be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and be chosen to go to homes.  We hope these little ones can be adopted in pairs or to a home that already has a cat or two - they're family and as far as we know, have never been alone, so we hope they can stay in pairs so they always have a warm body to play and sleep with!

We will tell you more about their personalities as they grow and as their foster family gets to know them better.  They are very lucky little furballs to have such a wonderful foster home - thank you so much!

I'm interested.  How do I meet these kittens?

"Libra" and her siblings Virgo, Scorpio and Taurus came to us on September 2, 2020, along with their mom Gemini and Gemini's sister Sagittarius.  The kittens were born about August 1, 2020, so were only about four weeks old.  Each of these little ones has a heart murmur right now, but we're hoping they will outgrow it soon as often happens.

Libra, her siblings, mom and aunt are fostered with some wonderful friends in the Woodstock area until they are old enough to be spayed/neutered/vaccinated/tested for FIV and FeLV and go to homes.  We hope they can go in groups of two so that they will always have a loving sibling to keep them company, and to have someone with home to cuddle and enjoy "cat time."

"Gwendolyn," "Janna" and "Kiena," two-day old siblings with no mother, came to us on September 2, 2020.  Their mom could not be found and they were very cold and very hungry.  They would most likely not have survived much more time on their own.  Having been born only hours before, they most probably did not get the nutrients they required from their mother's milk.  They were born about August 31, 2020.

All three little kittens are being fostered by a kind vet tech who cares for them daily - including feeding them by hand every two hours around the clock - day and night.  Thank you, Chloe.  You have saved their lives.

As of September 8, 2020, Janna was having a bit of trouble, but she has the best vet care possible and is now doing just fine.  All are growing like cute little weeds, are on no medication at all and they make their foster mother smile every single day.  Thanks for taking such good care of these little guys!  We'll keep you up to date on their progress and when they will be ready for homes!.

adoption protocol.  He thanks his friends at

"Lucas" came to us from the Beechwood area on September 19, 2020, where he had been a stray who was hanging around looking for food.  Cold weather was already upon us and he was cold and hungry.  He had to be live trapped, but he soon realized that he was safe and would be cared for.  Lucas was born about September 19, 2017.

Lucas had tapeworms, fleas, ear mites, moderate tartar and marked gingivitis.  He required several infected teeth to be extracted to make him comfortable and able to eat properly.  Lucas is a beautiful little boy who is happy to be safe, warm and fed.  He will be ready for a homeby November 24th, just as soon as he is neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV.  He has already had his first treatment for parasites, so he's feeling much better!

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

On October 26, 2020, Lucas went to spend some time with his friends at The Purrfect Cup where he will be spoiled beyond his dreams while he awaits the chance to meet that perfect family with whom to spend the rest of his life.  He can't wait!  Please stop in and meet the staff and fur balls of The Purrfect Cup - you'll love it there!

In June, 2020, we took in 40 sick, injured, abused and/or neglected cats and dogs.  In August, we took in 27.  In only the first two days of September we had already received 12 cats and dogs who had no other alternative for life. 

Thirty-eight (38%) of our strays are kittens.  Your donations are gratefully appreciated to help us care for these little ones.  Each will be spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated (rabies, Felocell, Leukocell and boosters) tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites before being adopted.

PLEASE!!
SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PETS!!

"Bader" and her sisters Notorious and Ginsburg came from the Centreville area on September 25, 2020 where they had been found on a rock pile with no mother.  They had been born about September 2, 2020.  Unfortunately, the mother was not with them, so she will, no doubt, continue to have more litters of unwanted kittens.  Sadly, Notorious was unable to survive, so we would like to keep Bader and her sister Ginsberg together - they are family.

These little ones are eating on their own and will be ready to go to homes once they are spayed, vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites.  In the meantime, they are fostered by a vet tech who is giving them all the love and care they had never known existed.  Thanks!

"Hazard" came to us on October 6, 2020, from Perth-Andover where he had been adopted in 2018.  Unfortunately, his family could no longer keep him, so as per our adoption contract, he came back to us.

Hazard originally came to us on November 14, 2017 when he was found on a porch in Glassville.  He had upper respiratory infection, fleas and a fracture of the right femur of his hind leg.  Hazard was a little timid at first, but he's a really nice boy who is happy to have lots of love and attention from our staff, but he'd really love to be back in a home with a family.  He was born about August 10, 2017 and is a beautiful orange tabby - his markings are gorgeous!!

Hazard will be fully up to date on his vaccines in the near future and looks forward to joining a loving household of human servants!

"Taya" came to us on October 6, 2020 from Summerfield where he had been born on a farm.  He had experienced a traumatic incident which resulted in a broken jaw.  Taya, which means "mandible" in Swahili, was born about August 5, 2020, so was only about two months old - just a baby.

Taya was unable to open his mouth as part of his jaw was broken and part was dislocated.  The skills of his vet at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic have made it possible for his jaw to be relocated and we're hoping he will very soon be back to eating a normal diet.  Taya has a feeding tube inserted to ensure he gets the nutrition this little baby requires and he is assessed daily by his vet.  We hope he'll be fine - we'll keep you up to date.  Donations to help with his care are appreciated.

Taya would like to say thank you to the kind and generous people who made
donations toward his care.  We are all grateful for the assistance provided to this little boy!

"Caldwell" came to us from the Florenceville area on October 13, 2020.  He had been found all alone on a porch on a cold morning and had no one to care for him.  He was cold, emaciated, dehydrated, weak, lethargic, was unable to open his eyes, had marked conjunctivitis, a discharge from his eyes, and his fur was matted with burdocks.  His birth date was estimated to be about August 30, 2020, so he was only about six weeks old.   This makes him too young to be away from his mom and he would not have survived much longer.   Two days later, his brother, Mensa (see below) was found in the same location.   We hope they will both be fine and might be adopted together.

Caldwell weighed only 1.1 pounds.  Even with his medical issues, he is sweet, loving and affectionate to his caregivers.  He wants only to be held, snuggled and loved.  He gives head butts continuously to let us know how grateful he is to be warm, safe and have a full belly and he purrs constantly, as long as he is receiving love!  And even though he is so very tiny, he gives it back in spades!!  His eyes appear to be improving a bit already with medication and we hope they will continue to do so.

Everything possible is being done for this little guy who is yet another baby born to an unspayed mother who had no one to help either of them.  Please spay and neuter your pets and keep them indoors where they are safe.  It makes a difference in their life, health and world.

Once Caldwell and his brother Mensa are well enough, neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites, they will be adopted to a home in Fredericton where they will be spoiled for the rest of their lives.  After having such a rough start, these are the lives they more than deserve! 

Caldwell would like to thank the very kind, generous and thoughtful people who
donated to help him receive all the medical care required.  Thank you SO much!

"Petley" came to us from Waterville on October 14, 2020.  She was a stray who had come to a home asking for food and shelter - she had apparently been around humans before because she is very social and loving.  Unfortunately, her left hind leg was broken (femoral head and femur fracture) and she required surgery which was completed on October 16, 2020.  This surgery involved removing the femoral head of her left hind leg and inserting two tiny pins above her knee - she had damaged it in two places.  As of post surgery, she is doing well, eating and purring almost as if nothing happened.  She is very grateful for the pain medication and all the medical care she is receiving at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.

Petley is very cute and affectionate and has obviously been around people.   She is a very lucky little girl to have this opportunity.  Thanks to all who donate to support such beautiful little ones.

"Mensa" came to us on October 15, 2020 from the Florenceville area where he was found in roughly the same location as Caldwell (see above).  He also had similar medical concerns as Caldwell, including emaciation, marked conjunctivitis, infected eyes, ear mites, dehydration and a fever.  He is under the care of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where we are certain they will take very good care of him.  Mensa was born about August 30, 2020.  Stay tuned - we'll keep you up to date as we learn more.

Once Mensa and his brother Caldwell are well enough, neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites, they will be adopted to a home in Fredericton where they will be spoiled for the rest of their lives.  After having such a rough start, these are the lives they more than deserve! 

"Katkid" and his sister Iowa (see below) came to us on October 17, 2020, from the Woodstock are as part of the Woodstock Community Cat Program.  This is a program set up by the town of Woodstock to help spay and neuter unowned cats within the town limits - please contact the Town Office for more information!  These two little fur balls were born about July 18, 2020, so were only about three months old. 

On October 20, 2020, both Katkid and his sister tested positive for FeLV - please read below to learn all about this.  Katkid and Iowa have been invited to live in a home of some very good friends where they will be able to have a normal kittenhood and not interact with other cats, potentially passing this along.  We thank this family once again for taking FeLV cats into their loving home where they will experience all the joys life can offer, and they'll give back just as much!

Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) is found in cats worldwide.  It may be spread by saliva, nasal secretions, urine, feces and milk from infected cats.  Cat-to-cat transfer of the virus may occur from a bite wound, during mutual grooming and (though rarely) through the shared use of litter boxes and feeding dishes.  Transfer may also take place from an infected mother cat to her kittens, either before they are born or while they are nursing.
