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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"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 born about March 1, 2011.

Rally was very sick with 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 quickly became well again with the medication, food and love that she received.

She's doing very well in her new foster home with one of our DunRoamin' Kids. She kneads and purrs 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.

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

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

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

"Dizzy" came back to us on August 15, 2012.  She had originally come to DunRoamin' on June 28, 2011 from Pole Hill where she and her family had been found closed in a hot shed without food or water.  She was born about May 25, 2011 and was adopted to a home in Florenceville on March 10, 2012.  She had developed a bladder infection, but became perfectly healthy again in a short period of time thanks to a tiny bit of medication which solved her problem quickly.

Dizzy was a little bit timid at first, but is well over that now.  She particularly seems to be attracted to men!  She lived with several other cats with whom she got along just fine.  On August 13, 2013 she and her friend Barbarossa (see above) went to a foster home where they lived a life of luxury.  They are currently back at DunRoamin' awaiting a home.  Dizzy is currently eating a diet of Medi-Cal Urinary S/O food.

Meet "Emm."  She and her two daughters, Bee and Double U came to us on August 27, 2012 when they were rescued from an abandoned home in Newburg in mid-August.  Their rescuer already had three cats of her own she was taking with her when she moved 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.  Emm was born about August 15, 2010.

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

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

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

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

"Hawkins" came to DunRoamin' on October 26, 2012 from the Hartland area where she was one of several strays being fed at a home.  Unfortunately, the wife had died and the owner was moving out so there was no one left to care for her and her friends.

All cats came to DunRoamin' where they were cared for, spayed/neutered, vaccinated and most have found homes.  Hawkins is still waiting, but in the meantime she is fortunate to be fostered by a loving family in Woodstock.  Hawkins is very loving and sweet and is happy to live with her friend, Emm (see above).  Hawkins required some dental work in May, 2015, but she is perfectly fine and was happy to get back to her foster family while she awaits a permanent home..

"Gerard" came to us on November 9, 2012 from the Centreville area when he was dropped off by an irate lady who, although she had had him for about six months, no longer wanted him.  She abandoned him at DunRoamin'. With subsequent testing Gerard proved positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus).   As FIV is potentially contagious, most often transmitted by deep bite wounds, Gerard would like to be an only cat, or perhaps live with another FIV+ cat, although current research says he'd be fine in a family of other cats as long as they don't fight, and Gerard is definitely a lover, not a fighter!  Please read about FIV below.

Gerard was born about November, 2010 and is a very sweet boy. He's very affectionate and loves nothing more than to have some attention paid to him. He participated as part of our Cats For Seniors program and hopes for a new senior to keep him company very soon.  His favourite place to be is on someone's lap or at least laying beside them being patted!

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

** 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.


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Tess" originally came to us on September 6, 2013 from Limestone, NB, where she had been found.  She was born about April 1, 2013 and had sustained too many injuries in her short life.  Female orange tabbies are a little more rare to find, so she's pretty special.

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 all this medical assistance, Tess decided she'd be fine!  On December 8, 2013, Tess was adopted by a senior citizen in Woodstock, but her kitten antics proved too much for her so she came back to us to find a new home on January 6, 2014.

Tess is a typical fun-loving and energetic kitten who goes straight out until she sleeps!  She's outgrown most of this, but she's still pure entertainment!  Who needs a TV when you have Tess to entertain you?

Bristle

Pounce

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

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

"Lucille" and her kittens Meryl, Depp, Reynolds, Serena, Patrick and Swayze 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 were 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 the others really needed help.  We thank the gentleman who called to get this assistance for them.

All cats 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.  It was determined they are from three different litters.  Lucille was born about November 20, 2012 and has had at least two litters so far.  She was a very loving and caring mother to her babies, but she was 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 the remainder of their problems.  Lucille is still waiting for a permanent home.  All her kittens have homes of their own and it's our greatest wish that she can have a loving family also.  Please come meet her  -  you'll love her!

"Soprano" and his three sisters Bass (see below), Tenor and Alto 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 were 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!  Soprano is especially loving and likes to sit on your shoulder and purr.  He has a great singing voice!  He has had some trouble recently with a suspected tumour, but he is now doing very well.

On February 11, 2015, Soprano and his sister Bass went to stay in a temporary foster home near Perth-Andover.  Thanks to this family for their extremely generous offer!

"Bass" and her three siblings, Soprano (see above), Tenor and Alto 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 were very tiny for their age. 

They were born about June 17, 2014 and were very loving and full of playful energy.  They love to wrestle, run and play and are very affectionate!  Bass is a great purrer and is aptly named - she has a great singing voice!

On February 11, 2015, Bass and her brother Soprano were offered a temporary foster home near Perth-Andover where they experienced the joys of living in a large home with humans, dogs and other cats.   Bass is currently back at DunRoamin' hoping to meet someone who will invite her into their family.  She particularly loves her friend Tess and she enjoys her exercise wheel also!

"Henry" originally came to us on September 28, 2012 from Perth-Andover.  He had urinary issues and his urethra had become obstructed for the second time and his family was no longer able to care for him.  Henry was prescribed a diet of Medi-Cal Urinary S/O food which has completely cured him.  We have several cats on this diet and have not had a recurrence of urinary problems in anyone once they are provided with this food.  Henry was adopted in December 2012 and did very 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.  He is fostered in Bath with several other cats and two dogs while he waits for that perfect family to recognize him as their next permanent family member.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Spoken for!!

"Mitch" came to us on February 24, 2015 from Greenfield where he had been found by a man near his home.  He is friendly, but he had problems.  He was emaciated, had ear mites which resulted in infection in his ears, had a wound behind his right ear and an old wound on his right hind leg.  His leg had apparently been fractured at some time in the past and he could not move it properly.  This, perhaps, is secondary to his emaciated state - how can you hunt when one of your legs doesn't work?  He was born about February 15, 2010.

On March 23, 2015, Mitch underwent surgery to allow him more mobility and movement in his hind leg.  He'll be chasing toy mice and tinkle toys very soon!  He greets his human servants with a loud quizzical "Mew??" and is quick to jump onto the nearest lap for a cuddle.  He's a real sweetheart.

As of April 26, 2016 he is recovering very well.  He's getting along very well on three legs and is a happy, purring, loving little boy.  He hopes to go to his new home very soon.

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

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

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

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

"Thora" came to us on April 22, 2015 from the NBSPCA when she was seized along with one other adult cat and 13 kittens.  All had ear mites, were thin and scared.  Thora was born about April 22, 2014.

Thora was initially scared but has progressed very well.  She currently lives with a half dozen other cats and gets along very well with them all.  She is a very sweet little girl who would like nothing better than a loving home.  Please come meet her.

"Sergio" originally came to us from Perth-Andover on April 11, 2014 as a stray who had an injury to his left ear which had become badly infected.  He also was unneutered, had ear mites and fleas and tested positive for FIV**.  On February 27, he went to a new home in Woodstock but was returned on May 13, 2015 due to allergies in the household.

Sergio is a beautiful boy who wants nothing more than to have a family of his own where he can live happily ever after.  He is a real cuddle bug.  He currently lives with his friend Gerard who also has FIV, but they are both perfectly healthy.  It would be great if they could get a home together but either would be grateful for a loving family.  Both these boys are more than affectionate and want only to be with humans who will love them back.

** 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).

"Catsy Cline" came to us on May 29, 2015 from the Centreville area where she was a stray for whom no one would care.  She was born about June 1, 2005 and was thin, dehydrated, had fleas and a doughy abdomen.  She was also missing a lot of hair from her back.  She was diagnosed with food allergies and was provided with a Hypo allergenic diet from Royal Canin which has made a great difference for her.  She feels much better, has a healthy appetite, no longer scratches herself and her fur has grown back in beautifully. 

Catsy is a very nice cat who loves affection.  Sadly, she's recently been diagnosed with a form of cancer, so she'll spend the rest of her days with us being spoiled as much as is humanly possible.  She loves to spend time with her friends in our Reception area and is the life of the party.  She's eating well, putting on some weight and she is very happy to have her friends to visit and pay her such a great deal of attention!  She talks to us incessantly, especially if she wants her pillows fluffed or her Snuggle Safe heated up!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Meet "Hashtag."  He came to DunRoamin' on August 24, 2015.  He had been a stray who was living on the streets of Woodstock until a young lady took pity on him and brought him for help.  He was born about August 25, 2013 and he had infected ears and some skin issues.  Right now he's eating some Medi-Cal Hypo-Allergenic food which is making a difference for him.  He's living with his friends Clooney and Catsy Cline and he'd love to have you come meet him!

Hashtag was initially timid, but he's rounded the corner to complete cuddle bug!  He loves people and loves to be picked up, patted and hugged.  He's put on a little weight since he arrived and would love to be allowed to sit on your lap.  Please come meet him!

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

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

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

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

Day 1


Day 21

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

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

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

"The Great Catsby" came to DunRoamin' on December 7, 2015 from the Woodstock area.  He was emaciated and had numerous wounds on his entire body which were at least several days old, if not more.  He had been in pain for awhile.  It is estimated that he was born about December 7, 2012.

This little boy was in extremely serious condition.  He was not ready to quit, though, so neither were we.  He had the best possible care from his new vets and soon was able to begin eating on his own.  He received medication daily, laser treatment to help his wounds heal and all the ear and chin scratches that he desired (and that was a lot!!).

Catsby is grateful for the kind person who brought him for help and the compassion and skill of his vets which have made it possible for him to have this chance at becoming healthy, happy and getting a new and loving home. 

UPDATE:  As of February 28, 2016, Catsby is doing very well.  He is eating up a storm and is walking well.  His skin is healing nicely and he is still soaking up all the love and attention he can get.  He still requires some medication on some sites on his neck, but it's healing up very well.  He deserves a very special home and we're hoping the person who deserves him will come for him soon.

"Hermey" came to DunRoamin' from Jacksonville on December 18, 2015.  He had a head tilt to the right and his ear was discharging pus, a condition which had been ongoing for some time.   He had an inflammatory polyp in his middle ear which required surgery to drain the discharge in an attempt to ensure he becomes 100% healthy again!

Hermey was born about December 18, 2012 and has black fur with individual white hairs throughout, giving him a unique "salt and pepper" look.  He loves people and is extremely affectionate - loves to be picked up, head butts and purrs up a storm.  He can be a bit timid around other cats, but loves kittens and dogs.  He has undergone surgery for his ear problems and is doing much better, thanks to care and medication. 

Sadly, on February 4, 2016, we learned that Hermey has been diagnosed with kidney failure.  As of February 6, 2016, he is fostered by a caring young lady in Woodstock where he'll get all the love and attention he can soak up for as long as he possibly can.  It seems his affinity for dogs is an asset, too.  Check him out with his new foster brother. 


We think he's in the best place he could possibly be
and we thank his foster parents from the bottom of our hearts

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

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

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

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



"Cronus" came back to DunRoamin' on January 29, 2016.  He originally came to DunRoamin' from Edmundston on February 12, 2015 where he was a stray who had frostbite on his ears, four of his teeth were fractured, he had an old fracture of his right hind toe and a recent three-centimeter open abscess on his left front leg.  He obviously needed help to change his life. 

All Cronus's injuries were addressed.  He was born about February 14, 2011.  On April 28, 2015, Cronus was adopted to a home in Northampton where he lived happily.  Unfortunately, his family had to move and could not take him with them, so he came back to us to find a new home.

Cronus was initially sad and unhappy, but has settled in, finding that he has people who will love and care for him.  He has been vaccinated and received a clean bill of health.  He's a codgy, handsome, loyal old tomcat who wants only to be a companion for someone who will share their love (and bed) with him.  He  loves being cuddled and sitting on a lap.  He loves to be patted on his head, neck and sides, but he's not so enamoured of being patted on his back!  He loves treats and would do well as an only cat (if he got lots of attention) or with another cat to play tag with!  He deserves that loving home and that special human.  Are you that special person?  Please come meet him!  It'd be great to have a home on his birthday (which is also Valentine's Day!)

"Cat Benatar" came to DunRoamin' on January 29, 2016 from the Woodstock area where she had been seized by the NB SPCA from an abandoned apartment along with her friend Catalie Portman (see below).  Their options for life were very limited, so they came to us for help.  Cat was born about July 1, 2015, so is still just a kitten.  Other than having fleas, she was relatively healthy.  She loves her food and is happy to know that it will always be there.  She also likes dogs and will swipe at their tails through her kennel doors as they walk by!

Even though she was abandoned to fend for herself in an empty apartment, Cat holds no grudge against humans.  She's just happy to have found a group of people who will take responsibility for her, keep her warm, safe, fed and pay her bills! 

Cat is very loving and attentive and her bright orange colours match the beauty of her personality - they say female orange tabbies are a little more rare, so she's definitely a gem!  She is hoping to find a family that she can count on to be hers forever.  Please come meet her and her friend Catalie!  If at all possible, they'd like to stay together.

"Catalie Portman" came to DunRoamin' on January 29, 2016 from the Woodstock area where she had been seized by the NB SPCA from an abandoned apartment along with her friend Cat Benatar (see above).  Her options for life were very limited so they came to us for help.  Catalie was born about February 1, 2011 and is a beautiful shiny pewter grey which helps display her beautiful yellow eyes.  She had mild tartar on her teeth and earmites which have been treated.  Otherwise, she's a beautiful and shiny little girl!

Initially scared and hissy, Catalie learned very quickly that she is now a ward of DunRoamin' where nothing bad will ever happen to her again.  She has been spayed, vaccinated, treated for parasites and will be loved and cared for until we find the perfect family who will take over those responsibilities.  She will then have the life she dreams of and deserves.  Maybe she and her friend Cat Benatar might even find a home together . . . one can dream, right??

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

Slater was originally timid and very standoffish, but now he meets us at his kennel door and head butts and purrs with the best of them, now that he's feeling so much better.  He was born about March 1, 2014 and is rapidly displaying his ability to be a fine and loving young tomcat.  Come meet him!!

"Rennick" came from Waterville on March 11, 2016.  He required dental surgery, but his family could not undergo the expense.  Rennick was born about April 18, 2004, so is about 12 years old.  He was a little shy and nervous, but who wouldn't be after leaving their home?  He underwent surgery and was quickly feeling much better.  Now that the pain is gone, he's a loving, affectionate little boy who loves to roll on his back for a belly rub!

Rennick hopes for someone to ask him to spend the rest of his life with them.  He's a very nice boy who would be more than happy to sleep next to a human, a nice warm fire or another cat.  He is currently being treated for a urinary infection but he's doing well and will be fine in no time!

"April"  came to DunRoamin' from Woodstock on April 5, 2016.  Her owner was concerned that she had been feeding her but she was not putting on weight and was not acting like she felt well.  Her owner could not keep her, so she was accepted by DunRoamin' so she could get the assistance she required.

April is a beautiful, healthy little girl who was born about October 5, 2015, so she's just a kitten.  She is happy, playful and affectionate.  She eats well and shows no signs of illness.  She hopes for a new home very soon.

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

"Moira" came to DunRoamin' on April 7, 2016.  She had started choking and required veterinary assistance.  Her vet determined that she had mild aspiration pneumonia, a high heart rate and pale gums.  She may also have a blood parasite (which is easily treated) and she tested positive for FeLV.  Moira was born about April 7, 2013 and is already spayed.

Moira is a beautiful girl.  She likes people and is hoping to have a home again.  We'll keep you up to date on her progress. 

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

UPDATE:  April 14, 2016 - Moira is doing much better today.   She has now tested negative for FeLV which means her body may be able to clear it on her own.  She must remain in isolation from other cats (or live in a home as an only cat) for three months, at which time she will be retested.  If she tests negative at that time, she's good to go!  It will be a long three months, but we're hoping for the best.  In the meantime, she'll be spoiled and cared for as she waits for her test in July.  Stay tuned!

"Quest" came to us on April 8, 2016 from the Woodstock area.  He was a stray who had injuries to his paws, most likely from fighting, but the people who found him couldn't keep him.  Quest was born about April 8, 2011 and is a nice boy.  He is neutered, his paws are on the mend and he has been tested for FIV/FeLV.  He is very handsome in his pewter-gray tux.

He currently is enjoying himself as his new servants wait on him paw and foot.  He hopes for a nice, warm, safe and loving home very soon.

Day 1                        Day 14

"Asia" came to DunRoamin' on April 16, 2016 from the Woodstock area where she and her two brothers Knight and Token (see below) had been found all alone.  The people thought the mom was a stray who was under their house, but couldn't find her.  They had been feeding the kittens by bottle but they were not not responding as they should and hadn't eaten for more than a day.  The people asked for help and one of our volunteers was quick to respond.

She picked up all three kittens and began to warm and feed them.  Asia is significantly smaller than her brothers and is not as interested in eating, but with the care she is receiving we hope she'll be better in no time. She and her siblings were reunited with their mom when she was found the next day (see below).  They were born about March 25, 2016.

"Knight" came to DunRoamin' on April 16, 2016 from the Woodstock area where he and his brother Token and sister Asia (see above) had been found all alone.  The people thought the mom was a stray who was under their house, but couldn't find her.  They had been feeding the kittens by bottle but they were not not responding as they should and hadn't eaten for more than a day.  The people asked for help and one of our volunteers was quick to respond.

She picked up all three kittens and began to warm and feed them.  Both Knight and his brother Token are larger than their sister, but we hope they'll all gain weight and be healthy soon.  Knight and his siblings were reunited with their mom when she was found the next day (see below).  They were born about March 25, 2016.

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

"Cyprus" came to DunRoamin' on April 17, 2016 from the Woodstock area where she was a stray with three little babies, Asia, Token and Knight (see above).  Her babies, only about five weeks old, had been found all alone a few days previously but Cyprus could not be located.  After three days, she was found trapped in the ducts of a building and had apparently been there for about three days without food or water.

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

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

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

"Vandal" came to us on April 23, 2016 from the Perth-Andover area where he was a stray who was injured and had no one to care for him.  He was born about October 27, 2013.

Vandal had injuries on his face and paws, all of which have been cleaned and medicated.  He has received vaccinations and will be neutered as well.  He is a very nice boy who is grateful to be safe and have plenty of nutritious food while his wounds heal.  We'll update as info becomes available, but right now we can certainly confirm he's a REALLY nice boy!

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

"Mandarin" came to DunRoamin' on April 27, 2016 from the Avondale area where he had apparently been struck by a car.  He had injuries on his head and face and also had upper respiratory infection.  He was born about October 27, 2015.

Mandarin is a very sweet little Boy.  He hopes for a new home as soon as he's medically able to go.  We're hoping that's very soon, because he's receiving the best of food, care and attention.  He's very affectionate and not scared at all - perhaps he belonged to a family at some point.  He is looking forward to a new one where he'll be loved and cared for.

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

"Crysis" came to DunRoamin' on May 3, 2016 from the Hartland area where a kind couple had taken her in last fall when she came to their door asking for help.  She had five kittens on March 24, 2016 (see below).  Unfortunately, both of her caretakers experienced severe medical conditions and could no longer care for Crysis and her babies.

Crysis was born about November 3, 2014.  She is a very nice little girl who is very protective of her babies.  We thank Archie for stepping up and offering a foster home for her and her family.  You are greatly appreciated.

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

"Henley" and her mom and four siblings came to DunRoamin' on May 3, 2016, from the Hartland area where a kind couple had taken in her mom last fall.  Her mom had become pregnant and gave birth to five little kittens on March 24, 2016.  Due to medical issues, the couple was no longer capable of caring for her and her babies.

Henley is small for her age.  She does not eat well on her own and must be fed nutritious food by syringe every six to eight hours until she starts eating well and gaining weight.  She is a very quiet little girl.  We're hoping she's going to be fine.  Thanks to her foster family for taking her in and giving her the care she'll need to grow up strong.  She already knows she's well loved, so she's well on her way already.

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

"Angelica" and her mom and four siblings came to DunRoamin' on May 3, 2016, from the Hartland area where a kind couple had taken in her mom last fall.  Her mom had become pregnant and gave birth to five little kittens on March 24, 2016.  Due to medical issues, the couple was no longer capable of caring for the family of kittens.

Angelica is a tiny bit nervous, but she just left her home, went for a car ride, met a whole bunch of new people and moved into a new foster home.  She'll be fine once she realizes that she's going to get the best of love and care and that she and her family will stay together until they're ready for new homes, which should be in about three weeks.

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

"Nigh" and her mom and four siblings came to DunRoamin' on May 3, 2016, from the Hartland area where a kind couple had taken in her mom last fall.  Her mom had become pregnant and gave birth to five little kittens on March 24, 2016.  Due to medical issues, the couple was no longer capable of caring for her and her babies.

Nigh is very friendly and outgoing.  She's the first one to play and the first one to catch your eye when a human enters her domain.  Then she just wants to play!  She is grateful to her foster family for having this chance to grow up with lots of love and care.

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

"Pawter" and her mom and four siblings came to DunRoamin' on May 3, 2016, from the Hartland area where a kind couple had taken in her mom last fall.  Her mom had become pregnant and gave birth to five little kittens on March 24, 2016.  Due to medical issues, the couple was no longer capable of caring for her and her babies.

Pawter is a little standoffish on Day 1, but that's to be expected.  It's been a big day for her family - leaving their home of the last six weeks, riding in a car, meeting lots of new people and moving into a new foster home.  She is grateful that she, her mom and siblings have a loving foster family to care for them until they can be chosen for permanent families.  She can't wait!!

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

"Tiombi" and her mom and four siblings came to DunRoamin' on May 3, 2016, from the Hartland area where a kind couple had taken in her mom last fall.  Her mom had become pregnant and gave birth to five little kittens on March 24, 2016.  Due to medical issues, the couple was no longer capable of caring for her and her babies.

Tiombi is an African name which means "one who is shy," and although she initially was, that's changing already.  She loves to play with her siblings and she's very happy to have the honour and pleasure of being fostered by a fantastic home in Perth-Andover.  What would we do without this family?!?
