Flora's Story...
Rescue
Flora and her two sisters were born under a deck to a feral (wild) mother cat. She was probably a cast off from a seasonal trailer park, just down the road. It happens a lot. People get a kitten in the spring and take it to the trailer for the summer. Either they let it outside and it wanders away and becomes lost, or they leave it behind to fend for itself. The kittens were born in September, and as soon as they were weaned, the woman who found them brought them inside. They were kept in a large cage in the garage for socializing, and then brought inside the house once they could be handled, about a week later. Having a large number of cats and dogs (all rescues) the woman reluctantly searched out cat rescue organizations to help, and finally found Pet Patrol. All three kittens are very attractive, social and playful. They are a few of the lucky ones that are helped by people who are not afraid to commit.

Personality
Flora is a very sweet and lovely kitten, who was timid when she first arrived at her new foster home. She is now a lot more outgoing and better with new people and other pets. She can be found licking the other cats heads and cuddling up with them. She is quite playful and likes toys of all kinds and likes to run up and down the stairs after them. Flora is inquisitive and will want to see who is new and what is in that box or bag. She accepts a pet from people, and purrs deeply. She is a lovely little cat. Flora is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.

About Pet Patrol

About Our Rescue Group...

The Pet Patrol Cat Adoption Program began in 1996, with a concern for lost and abandoned cats. Soon after, we realized the population explosion of homeless cats, was not only in our community, but everywhere.

Their plight is sad. Imagine living in a warm and comfortable home, then suddenly staring at the back of the car as it drives off, leaving you on a gravel road. Nothing looks familiar, no house, no people. Where do you go now? Where do you find your next meal, water, a warm dry bed? And then there are the other animals who don’t want you there...where is safety?

Many more cats are dumped by insensitive owners than lost. They are usually not neutered or spayed, which adds dramatically to the over population situation. They are in poor health, unable to fend for themselves in the dead of winter or heat of summer, in the middle of nowhere. They are voiceless, but their hearts cry out for us.

Pet Patrol has expanded successfully and we provide loving foster homes, professional Vet care, Chiropractic care and a Spay/Neuter program. We have Profile Adoption Books, posters, weekly newspaper advertising and are able to have our cats “Audition for Adoption” in two Pet Value stores in Waterloo. We have approximately 80 cats or kittens in our custody, and each cat’s medical and social concerns are taken care of before adoption. Potential new owners are screened carefully for compatibility of home life and to the cat’s personality and needs. With all this, there are never enough adoptive homes or funds, for so many more homeless cats out there, literally dying to come in.

As a Registered Charity, all monies raised go directly to Veterinary costs for each cat. Pet Patrol has grown as a direct result of the vast number of cats abandoned and trying to survive on next to nothing. You can understand the continual efforts needed to care for these cats in crisis. Pet Patrol has proven to be an important part of your community.

Donations are purrfectly welcomed.

Our Adoption Process...

Please note that we do not have an animal shelter or office. Pet Patrol cats live in the comfort of our homes, cage free. As such, appointments must be arranged before coming to the main foster home to visit the cats. Please call us at 519.669.1979 for an interview.

Every Pet Patrol cat has been Vet-checked, vaccinated, received its rabies shot, is spayed or neutered and treated for parasites.

Our adoption fee is $175.00 which helps to offset the initial Veterinary costs and control the overpopulation problem.

When you find a cat that you like, and it likes you, it can go home with you that day. You will receive the cat's profile (which tells you about the cat's rescue and its personality), you'll sign adoption forms and receive the cat's Health Record as well.

By living with the cats, we get to observe their individual personalities and how they get along with new people, children that visit the home, and their interactions with other cats. This helps us to determine if a cat needs a more serene and predictable home, or likes to be in the middle of a busy active family. We want everyone to be happy, the cat and its new family!
