How do you adopt one of these beautiful cats?  Click here to find out!

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

Lolita is a beautiful long-haired white lady with double paws on the front.  She'd like to live in a home without other cats or children, 'cause she seems to like adults best and prefers not to share the attention she loves so much. She loves water, and will sit in the sink until someone turns on the faucet so she can have a bath!  She's a playful cat when she so chooses, and would make a very good friend and companion for anyone who loves cats, especially long-haired white ones with double paws!
 

"Martin" came to us on July 24, 2010, when a truck was seen dropping off a large number of cats on the Plymouth Road near Woodstock.  Some kind people found them.  They were skinny, hungry, had bad eye infections, terrible fleas and ear mites so badly that their ear canals were fully closed off with flea dirt and they could not hear.  Several lost an eye due to the progression of the infection.

Volunteers brought Martin and his friends to DunRoamin' where their vet undertook much effort and many hours to make them well. Martin was born about March 21, 2010 and he is a real sweetheart.  For almost two years he lived as a Cat For Seniors with a lovely senior lady in Woodstock and then returned to DunRoamin' to await another home.  Martin only has one eye as a result of the infection he had as a kitten, but he is 100% perfect!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Griselda" came from Woodstock where she and some kittens were trying to survive in a trailer park.  They were not doing so well, because several had already died.  Griselda came to us on August 15, 2011.  She is relatively healthy and is a friendly and loving cat who is at least 10 years old.  She wants only a safe home where she can give everything she has to a family.  Griselda is in a foster home for now, but would love a permanent one, please. She's become very outgoing and affectionate, now that she's confident she's safe and will always have food. She's currently in a foster home while she awaits a permanent home.

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

Figaro had developed diarrhea, and his owner had been bathing him and ensuring he was clean, but as he was starting work, he was concerned that he could not keep doing that. Other than the diarrhea, Figaro was fine, and that's all gone away now. He's a sweet little boy and he's perfectly healthy. He's hoping for a home where he can show his family what a great friend he can be and just how much love he has to give.

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gail is about a year old, and although she's a little timid, she's 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!

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

Jaime was a little timid, but snuggled in when she was picked up. She even purred now and then! Her ears were treated for the infection and she quickly became much better day by day. On September 29, 2012 she went to stay with a foster family in the Hartland area. Thanks, Terri-Lynn and Chris!  She eventually moved back to DunRoamin' where she awaits a permanent home.  She loves other cats and would like to go to a home with at least one other to keep her company.  It's always nice to have someone of your own species around!!

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

"Lacey" came to DunRoamin' on September 27, 2013 from the Edmundston area when she and her two sisters were rescued from a box on the side of the road.  There was no mother.  Another sibling had already perished, perhaps of starvation, as Lacey and her siblings were barely old enough to eat on their own. 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

   

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

 
Breeze & Pounce, Blitz

Bristle

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

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

Breeze was the first of the siblings to get a home in August, 2014

Look at me now!!! (19 Apr 14)

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

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

!

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

Please read about FIV here.

 

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

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

   

  
   Day 1                                Day 9

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

** 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.

  

"Lucille" and her kittens Meryl, Depp, Reynolds, Serena, Patrick and Swayze (see below) came to us on the evening of May 22, 2014 from the Perth-Andover area where they had been living.  They were being fed by a gentleman but there are so many cats in the area that he was unable to do more than that.  They had such problems as eye infections, fleas, sinusitis and diarrhea.  One of their siblings had already died and they needed help.  We thank the gentleman who called to get this assistance for them.

They were brought to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where their new vet evaluated and treated them until almost midnight before they were ready to be tucked into bed.  They had to be fed every few hours as most were not eating on their own.  They are all from three different litters.  Lucille is only about a year and a half old and has had at least two litters so far.  She is a very loving and caring mother to her babies, but she's definitely overwhelmed.  On her first day with us her exhaustion was so great that she fell asleep while sitting up.

All were treated for eye infections and prescribed medications to treat their problems.  They're warm, safe, fed and cared for now.  They're looking for a foster home or permanent homes.


"Meryl" came from Perth-Andover on the evening of May 22, 2014.  She was born about March 21, 2014 and was fed by a gentleman but she had developed eye infections as well as such things as earmites.  At nine weeks of age, she weighed 1.9 pounds. 

Meryl was timid and quiet at first, but happy to have a safe and warm bed as well as medication for her ailments.  With this care, she has quickly become healthy and is learning to trust people.  She is very good to the other five kittens who came from the same place with her and loves to play with them.  She has grown VERY attached to her canine foster sister Ellie and will sleep with her and even allow her to clean her ears!

 

"Depp" came from Perth-Andover on the evening of May 22, 2014. He was born about April 18, 2014 and was fed by a gentleman but he had developed eye infections as well as such things as earmites.  At five weeks of age, he weighed 1 pound.  He was timid and quiet, but happy to have a safe and warm bed as well as medication for his eye infection and fleas.  He has blossomed well and loves to play with his siblings.

Their former home has numerous cats in the area who are not spayed or neutered, which results in too many offspring who are unable to get the food, medical care or attention they need.

 

"Diega," and her siblings Reddington, Keen, Spader and Nina (see below) came to DunRoamin' on the morning of June 2, 2014 from Lansdowne where they had been found in a box on the side of the road.  They were born about April 28, 2014, only just a month old.  They had no mom and no human to care for them.

Other than some minor eye infections, they were healthy.  They require food, warmth and love, and they'll soon get lots of that!  Diega and her siblings are fostered by a wonderful woman in Woodstock until they find permanent homes. Thanks, Lyn!

"Zenith" and her four babies Zsa Zsa, Zanza, Zillion and Zest came to us from the Beechwood area on June 7, 2014.  Zenith was a stray who had come to a home with her babies but the people were unable to provide food or shelter for her and her family.  Zenith is about a year and a half old, born about the first of January, 2013.

Her four babies were born about May 24, 2014.  On June 22, 2014, they went to a foster home where they'll experience the warmth and love of family so they'll be familiar when they finally get that permanent home of their very own. 

Zenith's foster mom reported that Zenith is an incredibly loving girl.  She demands pets and purrs very loudly.  She loves people and is a great mother to the kittens.  She doesn't engage much in physical play, but when she does she never ever uses her claws.  She likes to explore and roam the house and shows absolutely no interest in the out-of-doors - she knows too well what that's like!  She's very vocal when meeting her family when they arrive home and talks to let them know how much she's missed them!  Zenith is now back with her DunRoamin' friends.  Please stop in and meet her!

"Nacho" came to us on June 16, 2014 from the Centreville area. He was a sibling of Maureen, Nancy and Taco (see above) who had been rescued from a location in which they were in constant danger from vehicles and predators, and several kittens had already died. His siblings had been previously rescued - he was the last to be found.

Nacho was born about May 7, 2014 and is a sweet little boy. He was scared at first and his tail was injured, but now he's fine. He loves people, loves his siblings and loves to run, play, roll, tumble and tear! He's grateful to have a new life and is awaiting his very own family.

   
Addy               Sansa                  Kara
    

"Addy," "Sansa" and "Kara" came to DunRoamin' from the Richmond Corner area on July 3, 2014.  They were found near the Department of Transportation garage and there may be another sibling - concerned rescuers are still searching.   They were only about seven weeks old, having been born around May 15, 2014.  All are girls.

Addy is a calico with lots of white.  She was very underweight, dehydrated, had fleas and a very serious case of upper respiratory infection.

Sansa is also a calico.  She was underweight, dehydrated, had fleas and moderate upper respiratory infection.

Kara is a tabby.  She had a good body condition but had fleas and a mild upper respiratory condition. 

All three are now well on their way to being perfect little kitties.  They are doing very well and are happy, healthy and playful.  They are being fostered by their rescuers. We thank them for their compassion and concern. 

 

"Beasley" came to us on July 24, 2014 from Woodstock where she had come to a home two days previously but was sick.  Upon examination it was learned that she was emaciated, weak and had a severe urinary tract infection.

Beasley is being treated and is doing well.  She has become a very social little girl who is grateful for the help she has received.  She currently lives in a room with seven other cats and loves them all.  She's really hoping for her own family - maybe for Christmas?

"Matilda" came to us from the Juniper area on July 25, 2014 where she had been found on the road.  She was pregnant and had no one to care for her.  She's a very nice little girl who is only about two years old.

Matilda is quiet, very affectionate and loves people.  She wants only a family with whom to share her life and love.  She will be the perfect best friend for anyone who will be hers!

 

"Lolli"came to DunRoamin' on July 27, 2014 from Perth-Andover where her previous owner had passed away.  No one was able to take her and she had begun to have inappropriate urination.  She also had fleas, matted fur on her chest and was pregnant.  Lolli has one blue eye and has medium-length long white fur.  She was born about July 27, 2012.

Lolli was not happy to be with us at first, but she's quickly learned that we all love her and she's starting to return the affection.  Her bathroom habits are pristine and she is a beautiful little girl who is anxiously awaiting a family of her very own.

   

"Eye-Agree" came to us on July 28, 2014 from Woodstock where she had been feeding her five kittens under a shed.  People noticed that she had a vision problem and undertook to help her.  They took in her five kittens and found homes for them.  She was born about the end of July, 2013.

Agree, however, required medical assistance.  Both her eyes are clouded and she may not see well at all.  She is on medication which will hopefully help clear up some portion of the scars on her eyes.  She has some sight, but would perhaps see as if through a cloud.  Fortunately, her ears and nose have helped her survive for as long as she has.  Now it's time for a nice, safe, warm, loving family home.  She can't wait.  She certainly deserves it.  She's a very loving and affectionate little girl whose time has come for the good life.

"Tebo" came to us on July 29, 2014 from Stickney where he had apparently been struck by a vehicle.  He had road rash and bruising on his abdomen and tail, a dislocated left hip and earmites.  Tebo was also quite overweight.  He needed much medical attention and his family was not able to undertake the financial commitment at this time.

Tebo has undergone surgeries to repair his abdomen and is on a strict diet.  He is a loving and affectionate orange tabby who would like to live with a family again.  Please come meet him.

 

"Mallard," McGee and Ziva, all little girls, were dropped off on the doorstep of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic in the wee hours of the morning of August 18, 2014, long before staff arrived for work.  They were born about June 15, 2014 and had bad fleas and earmites.  They were otherwise healthy, so had belonged to someone as they are familiar with people.

They were scared, of course, and we're sure they were missing their mom, as they cuddled close to each other for comfort.  They were just scared little babies who had no clue as to what had happened to them.

Their medical needs were addressed and they are now fine, beautiful and healthy little kittens.  They hope for a permanent home, or at the very least, a foster home.

"Foxy" came to DunRoamin' from the Greenfield area on August 21, 2014.  She was born about January 20, 2014.  She had been an indoor cat, but had decided to check out the great outdoors for the very first time.  It is not safe out there, as she soon remembered when she was attacked by a wild animal.

Foxy sustained extremely serious injuries to her stomach area.  She had a fever, was dehydrated and had infected bite wounds on her abdomen resulting in an abdominal wall hernia.  Her only option for surgery was to become DunRoamin'.  We'll keep you up to date.

 

"Nifty" came to DunRoamin' on August 26, 2014 from Lakeville where he was a stray.  People there were unable to take him in.  He was emaciated, starving, dehydrated and had earmites and ticks, as did his three siblings (see below).  He and his siblings all became healthy, happy, playful little kittens who still dream of a forever home where they'll have a family of their very own.

"Nolan" came to DunRoamin' on August 26, 2014 from Lakeville where he, along with his brother and sister, was a stray.  People there were unable to take them in.  He was emaciated, starving, dehydrated and had earmites and ticks, as did his two siblings (see above and below).  We'll keep you up to date as we learn more.

 

"Marsden" came to DunRoamin' on August 27, 2014 from Bedell where he had been a stray who was hanging around a house for about a week.  People there saw that he needed medical help as he was very thin and looked hungry, but would not eat much at all when they set food out for him.

Marsden was examined by a vet who diagnosed him as being emaciated, severely matted, and he had severe earmites and ticks.  He also had a fractured upper canine tooth and marked periodontal disease which explained his problem with not eating - that must have hurt!  Marsden is now receiving the medical care he needs. 

On August 29, 2014, Marsden had all his teeth pulled and was shaved to remove the matted fur on his body.  He also had his ears cleaned.  He will need canned food for a couple of weeks and will require ear medication for about 10 days, but otherwise he is doing very well.  He's anxious to go to start his new life, but in the meantime, he's fostered by his rescuers in Woodstock.  Thanks for helping him!!

"Soprano" and her three sisters were found in a small cardboard box on DunRoamin's doorstep early on the morning of August 30, 2014.  They had external parasites and upper respiratory infection and are very tiny.  All their troubles were treated.

They were born about June 17, 2014.  They are very loving and full of playful energy.  They love to wrestle, run and play and are very affectionate!

"Bass" and her three sisters were found in a small cardboard box on DunRoamin's doorstep early on the morning of August 30, 2014.  They had external parasites and upper respiratory infection and are very tiny.  All their troubles were treated.

They were born about June 17, 2014.  They are very loving and full of playful energy.  They love to wrestle, run and play and are very affectionate!

"Noah" returned to DunRoamin' on September 25, 2014.  He originally came to us on January 24, 2014 from the Oakland area.  He had been urinating on articles in the home and they no longer wanted him.  He also was not interested in eating and was a very unhappy boy to the point that Soft Paws had to be applied to keep him from scratching people.

Noah was found to have a minor urinary tract infection which was treated quickly.  This brought his personality back to normal since he felt so much better so quickly.  He is about seven years old and is just missing that one little thing . . . family.  He was adopted in August 2014, but was returned as he was urinating inappropriately again.  A vet examination revealed that he had a bit of a urinary infection and mild dermatitis, but a few small pills took care of that in no time at all!  He is perfectly healthy again.  He's a real sweetheart who would love to live in a family situation.  Please come meet him.

 

"Filly" came to us from Stickney on October 7, 2014.  She had lived in a barn for her entire four weeks of life and yesterday she had been stepped on by a horse.  She is a very sweet little short-haired multi-coloured girl with blue eyes that will steal your heart.

Filly was born about September 7, 2014, was underweight and had fleas and earmites.  The biggest concern, though, was the fact that she could not walk and was dragging her hind legs.  Her vet has not found any broken bones and she still has sensation in her legs, so we're hoping for the best. 

She has the best medical care possible at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic and she will receive physiotherapy and will be taught to use her legs again.  She may even need a tiny little wheelchair "all rug up" for her to help her recuperate!  Stay tuned - we'll keep you up to date.

   

"Paulie" came to DunRoamin' along with his sisters Pocket and Cotton on October 12, 2014 from Woodstock.  They had been found under a trailer  when people were replacing skirting and they knew there was something wrong.  All three kittens were cold, malnourished and had fleas and earmites.  Sadly, little Cotton was unable to survive.  They all have a condition known as cerebellar hypoplasia, otherwise known as "wobble kittens."  Although perfectly healthy, they are unable to control their movements and appear to wobble more than walk.  Paulie and Pocket are very cute little kittens who look forward to a loving home.

Vivica, a former DunRoamin' stray who now has a wonderful permanent family, also had hypolasia.  She lives a perfectly normal life and requires no extra medical care.  Other than making sure she's safe (ie:  can't fall down a set of stairs, etc) she requires no extra care.  She is a normal, healthy, loving, affectionate, playful little girl.  Here's a video of her:

"Henry" originally came to us on September 28, 2012 from Perth-Andover.  He had urinary issues and had blocked for the second time.  His family was unable to care for him.  Henry was put on a diet of Urinary S/O food which has completely cured him.  He was adopted in December 2012 and did well, but when his family acquired dogs who were jealous of him, he was returned to DunRoamin'. 

Henry has no issues at all and is an exceptionally beautiful boy.  He's very quiet and laid back - nothing fazes him.  He likes other cats, dogs (even if they don't like him) and he's happy just to be loved.  Henry was born about September, 2009.

"Coulson" came to us on October 23, 2014 from the Wakefield area.  She had shown up at a barn and she was in need of help.  She was born about March 20, 2014 and was emaciated, dehydrated, starving, exhausted and had earmites.  She also has a medial luxation of her patella (ie:  her kneecap is permanently dislocated).

Coulson was vaccinated, tested for FeLV and FIV and treated for her parasites.  She was also given fluids.  She is still feeling under the weather, but we hope she'll be much better very soon.

"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 have 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 has since been repaired.  Strauss was born about May 1, 2014.

The compassionate people who are caring for these cats and kittens are also trying to raise money enough to spay and neuter all eight.  Donations are gratefully accepted for this endeavour.  You can also find more information about them on Facebook.

"Crabbe" came to us from Wicklow about 7 pm, November 1, 2014 where a lady had found him unconscious in her driveway.  It was feared that he would not survive.  He was brought to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where his vet noted that he was hypothermic (very cold), his heart rate was only 20 beats per minute (should have been at least 150), his blood sugar was 1.8 (should have been at least 6 or 7), his temperature was too low to register (any temperature that doesn't register or is less than 33*C is normally not consistent with life) and he had tapeworms and fleas.  He had no food in his stomach or intestines and his blood sugar was so low he couldn't move.  He was starving to death and most probably would not have lived another half hour.

His vet went to work and two and a half hours later he was warm, conscious and able to eat some food.  As of November 3, he's active and playful!  Crabbe would like to thank his vet and the lady who rescued him and made this second chance at life possible.

 

Meet "Thatcher."  He's approximately ten years old and he came to us from Centreville.  His owner was moving, couldn't take him and couldn't find him a new home.  It appeared the only option for him was euthanasia.

Thatcher had tapeworms, was mildly thin and had a moderate amount of tartar on his teeth but was otherwise in good shape.  He'd like to carry on being someone's best friend, so please come meet him.  He purrs immediately when greeting people and he's got a great "elevator butt!"  He loves to be scratched on his back at the base of his tail! 

"Bono" came to us on November 4, 2014 from Red Bridge.  A young lady had come home to find her dogs barking at something in her back yard.  When she explored, she found Bono laying in the snow.  He did not appear outwardly injured, but he had slime on him and he could not walk properly when he tried to get up.  He was very cold and he obviously needed help. 

Bono was picked up by a DunRoamin' volunteer and brought to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where he was examined.  Bono had a fractured canine tooth, his temperature was only 32*C (less than 33*C is normally not consistent with life), pale gums, he was in shock, was markedly dehydrated, had air under his skin (subcutaneous emphysema), collapsed lungs and a fractured thorasic vertebra.  It is believed he was attacked and shaken by a dog.  He has the best of care.  As of November 16 he seems to be doing quite well!

"Sloane" and his sister Bacall (see below) came to DunRoamin' from the Grand Falls area on November 10, 2014 when their family was no longer able to care for them.  Sloane was born about 1998 and is a beautiful little boy.  He'd just like a nice warm home and loving family for the rest of his years.

Sloane had fleas and ear mites, moderate tartar on his teeth and gingivitis, all of which will be treated.  He's very quiet, attentive and loving.  He hopes to have a family to love very soon.  Both he and his sister would love to have a chair to nap on together while they watch TV with their family.  At 16 or 17 years of age, he's hoping it will happen soon.  Maybe this Christmas . . .

"Bacall" and her brother Sloane (see above) came to us from the Grand Falls area on November 10, 2014.  Bacall was born about 1998 and had fleas and ear mites when she came.  She was mildly dehydrated and had severe stomatitis - a dental problem which made her uncomfortable and gradually would make it painful to attempt to eat.  On December 2, 2014, Bacall had all her teeth removed.  She is recovering very well and eating already - with no pain! 

Bacall is a very nice, quiet and gentle cat.  She loves her brother and would love to have a new home with him.  She headbutts him and cuddles with him and wants to be near him.  They are obviously very attached to each other.  They both hope for a new family very soon - maybe they'll get their wish for Christmas and be able to spend their remaining years together in a loving home.  They are absolutely no bother - they just want to be together and have a human to serve them!  They are loving and are definitely cuddlers..

"Finley" came to DunRoamin' on the cold and rainy evening of November 12, 2014.  A young lady had noticed her outside a church and saw that she wanted in out of the rain, but she was not allowed in.  When the lady left the church, she was still there and followed her to her car, meowing and asking for help.  She was wet and cold.

The area where Finley was found is known for hungry foxes and it was not safe for her to be on her own.  She hopes that now that people know she needs help, she will be able to find a permanent home where she'll be safe, warm and fed. We'll have more details on her soon.

"Clockwork," a little orange boy, came to us on November 12, 2014 from the Florenceville area where he was found under a vehicle.  He did not move at all when confronted with the noise of the vehicle, people or other animals.

Clock was brought for assistance where it was determined that he was about six years old, weighed only 4.8 pounds, was emaciated, dehydrated, had itchy ears, mites and a kidney infection.

Clock was in rough shape, but with a few medications and some nutrition

"Hayes" came to DunRoamin' from Hartford on November 14, 2014.  She was born about August 1, 2014.  Her mother had been struck and killed by a car recently and Hayes had been hanging around a garage for about a week but was scared and could not be caught.

Today her rescuer was able to catch her because she was not feeling well and was hungry.  She was diagnosed with an abscessed umbilical hernia and desperately needed medical assistance.  Normally the umbilical cord falls off, but on occasion it becomes infected, and Hayes has been dealing with this for her entire short life.

Her vet at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic is dedicated to ensuring that Hayes gets the medical care that she requires.  She has received antibiotics and had her wound treated.  We'll keep you up to date.

"Clooney" came to DunRoamin' on November 14, 2014 from Perth-Andover.  He has had several problems over the last couple of months including fleas, earmites, marked gingivitis and missing hair potentially from fighting to survive.  Clooney now has blood in his urine which may indicate kidney infection.  He needed help.

Clooney is a beautiful black little boy who was born about March 15, 2014.  He is currently wearing a t-shirt and eating a hypo-allergenic food which will hopefully ensure he does not scratch himself due to allergies.  He's hoping for a full recovery and that he may be fortunate enough to get a home where he will be loved and kept safe and healthy for the rest of his life.

 

"Maureen" returned to DunRoamin' on November 15, 2014 from Wakefield where she had been adopted on October 20, 2014.  Her family was very happy to have her and she made them love her drastically, but unfortunately, their German Shepherd did not share the love.  Although Maureen liked him, his prey drive was a bit too strong for Maureen to be safe, so, with heavy heart, her family had to give her up.

Maureen readily settled back in at DunRoamin' with her friend Taco and seven other kittens.  She's waiting for another chance at a loving home and family.  She was born on May 7, 2014.  Come meet her!

"Calamity" came to us on November 17, 2014 from the Newburg area where she was a homeless stray who was found on a porch.  She was born about November 15, 2013 and it appears she has not had the best of lives so far.  We hope to make her next eight lives better.  Calamity was moderately dehydrated, had tapeworms and had porcupine quills embedded in her lips and mouth.  She had a previously-broken leg which had healed on it's own and she also had a problem with her right eye:  her upper eyelid was scarred on to the surface of the cornea of her eye.

The quills were removed from her face, she was given fluids and her tapeworms were treated.  She already feels better.  She underwent surgery to fix her eye and is doing very well - she thanks her vet immensely!  Calamity is a quiet little girl who was initially a bit skittish, but is already doing fine with the care and compassion she is experiencing.  She now purrs, kneads and cuddles with the best of 'em - some might say even a bit better than most!!  She is like picking up a bundle of feathers - very light and delicate, and she cuddles in with all the love she can muster.  And that's a lot!

"Sienna" became a ward of DunRoamin' on November 22, 2014.  She had originally been live-trapped in Wapske, but she had bitten someone who had reached into her kennel and it was decided by a medical expert that she should be quarantined to ensure she did not have rabies or she would otherwise have been put down.  She is a feral stray and is therefore very scared of people and will most likely always be too terrified to ever become a house pet.

Thanks to the generosity of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic (FVC), she was allowed to stay with them for her 10-day quarantine which proved she did not have rabies.  She will be spayed, vaccinated and will live with some friends of DunRoamin' until her surgery site heals.  She will then go to live in a barn where she will be warm, safe and fed.  Thanks to FVC and Marcia and Colin for coming to her rescue.

 

"Gwen" came to DunRoamin' on November 26, 2014 from Riverbank where she was noticed laying on the side of the road.  She did not attempt to run when approached, because she needed help.

Gwen was emaciated, exhausted, had fleas and earmites and was dehydrated.  Her fur was covered with oil/grease which would make it unable to keep her warm in the cold weather we've been having.  Although she appeared to be a kitten because of her size, she was born about May, 2012.  She has obviously had a very hard life and she deserves the best we can give her.

Unfortunately, Gwen was in very bad shape.  Her vet did everything possible for her, including introducing IV fluids, good meds and good nutrition - she is receiving the best of care.  We all hope she'll be fine.   She is fortunate to be in a warm bed with food, love and compassion.  Get well soon, Gwen.  We will be sending positive thoughts your way.  Note:  As of December 17, 2014, Gwen has gained a whole pound!  Way to go!!

"Johnson" came to DunRoamin' on November 28, 2014 from Centreville.  Some children had gotten him from a place in Woodstock but soon learned he was sick.  He was brought to DunRoamin' to receive medical care he required.

Johnson was dehydrated, underweight, emaciated and had diarrhea.  He was born about September 1, 2014 and is a beautiful little boy.  He doesn't feel very well right now, but will be fine in a very short time with a little care and attention.  He looks forward to gaining a family who will love him, cuddle him and let him sleep on their bed.

"Shawna" came to DunRoamin' on November 29, 2014 from Waterville where she had been hanging around a special care home.  The owner refused to care for her and did not want employees to feed her or encourage her to stay in the area.  She had no one to care for her and people believed she needed medical assistance.  She was obviously very cold and very hungry, her eyes were emitting a discharge and she has no tail.

Shawna was brought to DunRoamin'.  She was assessed by a vet who determined that she had eye infections and needs some medication for her tail, but she's going to be just fine in no time flat!  She'd like a home for Christmas, please!

"Bertie" came to us from the Plaster Rock area on December 1, 2014.  She had peed inappropriately and was no longer wanted so was given to a shelter.  She was pregnant and scheduled for surgery, but when her surgery was begun it was obvious there were serious complications, so she became a ward of DunRoamin' so she could undergo the procedures required to save her. 

It was learned that while pregnant, she had been bitten by an animal who ripped a hole in her stomach, damaging her two fetuses.  They were unable to survive and caused injury to her.  Bertie's vet was able to undertake a surgery to save her and she is currently doing well.  She was born about December 1, 2012.

This photo was taken at about 8 pm, December 2, 2014.  She is alert, happy and is doing fine!  She's a beautiful, affectionate little girl who is grateful for the medical assistance.

"Mighty" came to DunRoamin' on December 1, 2014 from the Woodstock area.  He was born about July 1, 2014.   A gentleman who was trying to care for several strays observed that he kept his head to one side, was not eating well and recently was unable to walk.  He had to be carried to the litter box.  He obviously needed help.

It was learned that Mighty had a polyp on the soft pallet in his mouth which would make it painful and difficult to eat.  He also had another in his right ear which resulted in poor balance and a head tilt.  The ear polyp had ruptured his eardrum which would be very painful for him.  He was also dehydrated and had fleas.

Mighty underwent surgery to remove both polyps.  He will obviously have a sore ear and mouth for awhile, but in about six weeks we're hoping he'll be just fine.  He's a sweet little boy.

"Fontaine" came to us on December 6, 2014 from the Oakland area where she and her friend Barrymore (see below) were part of a colony that was inspected by the NBSPCA.  Fontaine and her sister were both not doing so well, so they were brought for help.

Fontaine was born about December, 2011, was pregnant and had a really bad case of upper respiratory infection.  She was spayed and her needs were all addressed.  She is slightly timid, until you pat her!  Then she shows how much she likes it.

"Barrymore" came to us on December 6, 2014 from the Oakland area where she and her friend Fontaine (see above) were part of a colony that was inspected by the NBSPCA.  Barrymore did not appear normal, so was brought for help.

Barrymore is only about a year old, born about December 1, 2013.  Her vet discovered that she had a polyp in her ear which caused her head tilt.  The polyp will be removed and we'll see how she does.  Much better, we're sure!

"Rudolph" came to DunRoamin' on December 15, 2014 from Lower Brighton where he had been a stray.  The people who found him couldn't keep him because they were allergic.  He had been hanging around their home for about a month but had no one to provide him with food or assistance.

Rudolph was thin, dehydrated, and all four feet were covered with infected wounds.  He was born about December 15, 2013.  Rudolph is very friendly and happy that he is now safe.  Beats being out there in the cold all alone by a long shot!

"Blitzen" came to us on December 17, 2014, from the Woodstock area where she was a stray who had come to a house looking for food, shelter and friendship but no one was willing to take her in.

Blitzen was assessed by a vet who determined that her left iris was scarred to the back of her cornea and she was blind in that eye.  She was born about June 15, 2013.  She was very thin and also had fleas and earmites for which she was treated.

Blitzen is very friendly and grateful for food, warmth and love.  She would love to have a home for Christmas.
