"Lolita" is about two years old (born about September, 2007) 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!

"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.

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.  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 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 has been waiting for her home for four years now.  She is not a cuddle cat but is happy to have the company of other cats and to have a warm and safe home with someone to watch over her.

"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.  She was born about February 1, 2010.

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 born about March 1, 2011.

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 August 15, 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 was born about June 15, 2010.

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.  She was born about August 15, 2010.

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 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!

"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 born about September 15, 2010.

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.

"Abner," his brother Abel and sister Avis 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.  He was born about April 1, 2012.

Abner is a beautiful boy who was initially quite scared, but he's quickly gotten used to us, his nice warm bed and lots of food in his belly.  It makes a difference.  Abner is one of the most social kitties in Gen Pop and he will stand on his hind legs like a ground hog so you can scratch the top of his head for him!  He and his brother Abel have been waiting for that special home for a very long time, and are still hopeful that they might get to live together.

"Abel," his brother Abner 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.  He was born about April 1, 2012.

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

"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 sometime in 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!

"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!

"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 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.  She was born about December 25, 2012.

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 April 1, 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 in Perth-Andover.

Bristle and Pounce

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," "Bristle," Blitz 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.  Blitz was adopted on January 13, 2015.  Pounce and Bristle are still waiting after more than a full year!  Please come meet them.

"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 April 1, 2013.  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.

"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 was born about November 20, 2012 and had 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.

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


"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!

"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.  His tail is several inches shorter than normal and has several twists and turns to it, but he's absolutely 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.  He is exceptionally affectionate.

"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 was born about July 25, 2012.

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!  She is the first one to climb onto your lap and settle in for a good long purring nap.  She will make a fine companion for those cold winter nights!

"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.

"McGee," Mallard 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.  Mallard and Ziva have both been adopted, leaving only McGee waiting for her turn at a permanent home.  She is currently fostered by a family in Bristol while she awaits a permanent family of her own.  Thanks, Shawn and Mitchell!

"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.

"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.  He was born about August 27, 2001.

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 the most amazing of families who also are fostering several other cats and a family of puppies.  We can't thank you enough!

"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!  Soprano is especially loving and likes to sit on your shoulder and purr.  She has a great singing voice!

On February 11, 2015, Soprano and her 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 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!  She is a great purrer and is aptly named - she has a great singing voice!

On February 11, 2015, Bass and her sister Soprano were offered a temporary foster home near Perth-Andover where they will experience the joys of living in a large home with humans.  Congratulations!  Be good!

"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 was born sometime in 2006and 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.

"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.  He is fostered in Bath while he waits for that perfect family to recognize him as their next permanent family member.

"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.  It took her a little time to recuperate, but she is now a beautiful and loving little girl.  Her fur is medium length and very soft.  She loves to be patted and brushed and she eagerly awaits the family who will invite her to join them permanently.

"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.

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!

"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.   A nice warm home with a human to love would be the dream of both Sloane and his sister Bacall - especially if they could go together.  They just need a bed, some food, some affection and an occasional hug or two!

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

"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 head butts 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.

"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 then had 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.  His wardrobe is growing and he loves his DunRoamin' logo t-shirt and his "security" shirt!  His fur is black, but it is speckled with strikingly white hairs spread throughout giving him a "salt'n'peppa" look!  He is a tiny cat but is full grown.

"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.  Maureen went to stay with a foster family on February 11 and is very grateful for the opportunity.

"Connery" came to us on the evening of November 23, 2014 from the Florenceville area where he was a stray who was being fed by a family who realized he had no one to care for him.  He was quite scared and potentially feral.  On this day the family observed that there was blood in the dish he was eating from and requested a live trap to catch him to help with his injury.  He was born about November 25, 2011.

Connery was live-trapped and delivered to DunRoamin'.  Upon assessment by a vet, it was determined that he was injury free - it was not his blood!  Connery is about a year old with long black fur.  He is a beautiful boy who was trying to accept the compassion of strangers.  As of January 29, 2015, he is much more comfortable with people.  He loves to have his chin rubbed and his back scratched and will reward you with a very loud and deep purr!

"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 received the best of care.  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. 

Update:  As of December 17, 2014, Gwen had gained a whole pound!  Way to go!!  As of January 25, 2015 she is almost back to her old self.  She looks great, loves people, loves to knead and purr and loves to be held.  Now if she could just get a loving home . . . she's been through a lot and deserves the best.

"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 also 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 additional 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.  She had sustained damage to herself and her two fetuses who were unable to survive and as a result had caused injury to her.  Bertie's vet was able to perform surgery to save her life and she is now perfectly fine.  She was born about December 1, 2012.

Bertie is a beautiful, affectionate little girl who is grateful for the medical assistance.  She currently lives with five other cats and is in her glory!  She is very outgoing and friendly.  Come meet her - she'd love to have her own family!

"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, 2010, 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.

Her 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 is demanding of attention and affection.  She loves her sister, Barrymore (see below).

"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 was removed and she is now fine.  She is quiet and unassuming, but if you pat her she's right there to get all she can!

"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!  He is currently living with five other cats and is happy to be warm, safe, fed and have some feline company.  And human company, too, of course!

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

"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 so he became a ward of DunRoamin' and was treated.  He easily overcame his infection and now eats 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.  We believe this is a one-time thing, since he gets along very well with all the other cats he lives with at DunRoamin'.

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 hopes for a home very soon.

"Jessica" was brought to DunRoamin' on the morning of February 9, 2015 from Gordonsville where she had taken shelter in a warm box provided by a family for any wayfaring animals who needed refuge from the cold.  Jessica is the first stray to use it this year and she is lucky to have found it with the terribly cold temperatures we have experienced in the last couple of months.  She was so cold that the tears that were around her left eye were frozen solid.  When her rescuer picked her up, she felt bones as opposed to a healthy body.  Jessica was taken inside to get warmth and food.  She eventually expressed her gratitude with a fine purr. 

Jessica was born about April 15, 2014.  She weighed less than five pounds, was thin, had an infected left eye, ear mites and matted fur.  She will now be cared for by the staff and volunteers of DunRoamin' to whom she has shown herself to be a very affectionate, loving and grateful little girl.  She hopes to have the luxury of a warm home and loving family in the near future.

"Cronus" came to DunRoamin' from the Edmundston area on February 12, 2015.  He was born about February 14, 2011 and he needed some help. 

Cronus's injuries included frostbite on the tips of both ears, four of his teeth were fractured which must be removed, he had an old fracture of his right hind toe and he also had a 3-centimeter open abscess on his left front leg which will require sutures to close.

Cronus is getting the medical care he requires from his vet at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  Although he can be a little bit cranky, that's just because he's not quite used to being pampered.  He LOVES canned food and will dive into it head first, but if you give him dry food, he looks at you like you're holding back on the good stuff!  He is full of personality and will very easily become a wonderful family member once he realizes what this new life is all about!

"Hollis" came to us from near Canada Bread on Houlton Road, Woodstock, on February 21, 2015.  He had been seen and being fed for a week or so and was living under a dumpster - that must have been cold!  He was finally caught and brought to us for help.

Hollis was born about July 21, 2010.  He has a "snaggletooth" and had fleas, as well as frostbite.  He was also dehydrated.  Hollis was already neutered, so must have belonged to someone at some time.  He will receive all the care he needs, including vaccinations and treatment for his fleas.  He tested negative for Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus.  He is very friendly but prefers to hiss at dogs rather than hug them!

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

"Knox" came to us from Knoxford on February 24, 2015 where he was a stray who had come to a home.  He was born about April 21, 2014.  He was thin, cold and hungry.  Knox is a very nice boy who is happily soaking up all the warmth, comfort and food in his path!  He spent much time resting up to regain his strength so he can properly meet, greet and play happily with the people who are caring for him and the family that will eventually adopt him. 

In April, the end of his tail had to be surgically removed due to frostbite, but he is 100% good to go and is waiting for his family to come get him.  He hopes that is soon.

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

"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 was apparently 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!

"Guy LaFurr" came to us on February 25, 2015 from Holmesville where he had been found as a stray who required medical attention.  He had large open wounds on his neck and three paws were infected and abscessed.  He had a high fever and an eye infection as well.  He was born about August 25, 2011.

Guy is a quiet little guy who was in awe of the assistance and care he has received.  He is very loving, affectionate and is a true hockey fan who is honoured to have been named after such an amazing man!  He hopes to gain a home in a Habs household in which he can watch hockey from the best seat in the house!

** 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.

"Silas" came to DunRoamin' on February 26, 2015 from Bristol.  He had been rescued previously and had an ulcerated right hind ankle wound and at least three broken canine teeth.  He was overweight and was lame on his leg which didn't appear to be healing the way it should.

Silas was born about 2007 and is a very nice boy. His vet at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic will have him better in no time and he's looking forward to that day so that he can go to a home.  As his FIV test came back positive, he is hoping for a home as an only cat or with another FIV cat, or any home that wants a beautiful, loving, orange furball!

"Jeter" came to DunRoamin' on March 9, 2014.  He was found about a foot and a half from the centre line on the road near Glassville, half covered with snow.  Had the lady not noticed him, his story would be quite different that what it will be now.  He had already been neutered, so must have belonged to someone at some point in his life.  He was born about March 9, 2013.

Jeter was cold, hungry, skinny and had corneal trauma on his right eye, possibly caused by an ulcer, upper respiratory infection, trauma or conjunctivitis.  He was very happy to have medical treatment for this and to be warm and safe.  He kneads, purrs and head butts as soon as a human comes near him.  He is a cuddly little sweetheart! 

On March 30, 2015, Jeter underwent surgery to remove his right eye as it was not healing as we had hoped.  He is a handsome young cat who is happy to have lots of care and the medical attention he deserves.  As of April 21, he's doing very well and shows himself to be a grateful and loving young cat.  We thank his vet for her skill and care.

"Ennis" became a ward of DunRoamin' during the late afternoon of March 11, 2015 when she was abandoned in a box outside the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic along with Solar (see below) whom we suspect is her sister.  She was born about March 10, 2014.

Ennis had infection in both ears but was otherwise healthy.  She was scared, of course, but is slowly realizing that all will be well very soon.  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 on her own.  She likes to snuggle with other cats for comfort.

"Solar" 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 with Ennis (see above) whom we believe is her sister.  She was born about March 10, 2014.  She was healthy and was scared, of course, but slowly started to trust the people who will care for her and find her a loving home.

After just a few days at DunRoamin', Solar showed her true personality.  She initially did not want to eat on her own and had to be fed by syringe, but slowly figured out that it's more fun to eat on her own.  Now she can't get enough, especially if it's canned food or Temptations!  She is exceptionally affectionate with people and also loves dogs!

"Hamilton" came to us late in the evening of March 11, 2015 from the Bristol area where some people came home to find him in the wheel well of a vehicle which had been sitting in their yard.  He immediately started howling loudly and followed them to the door, winding frantically around their feet and scratching and banging his head on their door.  They noticed that he was very agitated, unsteady on his feet and did not seem to see well at all.  A DunRoamin' volunteer attended and collected Hamilton to take him to medical assistance.

Hamilton was emaciated, had a poor coat and had infected teeth which also had a large amount of tartar on them.  He also had a urinary tract infection and a bad infection in his left eye.  He appears to have been born about March, 2005, if not before.  He was very happy to have food and a warm bed and has calmed some now that he has food in his belly.  He is being very well cared for.  He weighs eight pounds but once he fills out he'll be a big boy!  Maybe he'll even grow into those huge paws!  He loves people and can't wait to be patted, hugged and held!  He currently attacks his food as though he believes there will be no more once that's gone, but he'll learn soon that his old life is well over and a new one has begun.

"Valencia" came to DunRoamin' on March 21, 2015 from Knowlesville where she had been a stray who had been around the area all winter.  No one was willing to help her so she came to us.  She was born about March 21, 2009.

Valencia had an infected oozing wound on the left side of her body.  She also had infected and red teeth and marked gingivitis, as well as dirty ears.  

Valencia was initially a little on the timid side, but how could you be timid with so many people around who love you?  She's quickly becoming much more social.  She is a beautiful bright orange with large green eyes that will melt your heart!

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

"Jed" came to us on April 11, 2015 from a shelter that, due to very high numbers of both cats and dogs, did not have the resources to care for his special needs.  Jed had come to them several months ago.  He was severely emaciated and had extremely bad earmites.  He was given required medication and lots of food.  He had already been neutered and declawed upon his arrival.  Jed was born about January 1, 2010.

Jed later was noticed to be dragging his right hind leg when he walked and the reason was not determined.  His problem may be neurological and we'll keep you up to date once he's seen his vet who will determine the best course of action for him.

Jed is a very nice boy.  He's quiet, loving and affectionate.  He has absolutely no problem with his new surroundings or caregivers.  He's just happy that he has his soft warm memory foam bed and lots of food to keep his belly full. 

Stay tuned - we'll let you know more as we learn more about him.

"Tulliver" came from Peel on April 18, 2015 where he had been found on a porch the previous week.  His left eye had sustained an injury which had caused it to rupture and there was infection in the socket.  He had earmites, multiple fractured teeth anddd had not yet been neutered.

Tulliver is a very loving little boy who will have his eye removed as soon as is possible.  Then he'll be ready for a new home.

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

"Boone" came to DunRoamin' from Johnville on April 21, 2015.  A woman had been feeding him as a stray when she noticed his injury and was unable to provide him with medical assistance. 

Boone has an obvious injury on his right side which was most probably caused by a bird of prey that tried to pick him up to carry him away.  He's a very lucky little boy.  He is healing with medical care and hopes for a home soon.
