250,000 unwanted pets are killed in pounds
and shelters in Australia every year, just because they can't find homes.
These are innocent animals, whose original human companions
did not take responsibility

and the cats would
like to thank the Robertson, Devagnanam, Reddi and Shaw
families for their generous donations. They couldn't
pick just one cat to sponsor, so the donation is to help all!
A very generous donation has been made to the Haven in memory
of Glenda Boscoe, a lady who loved animals all her life.
Willow, she is
absolutely stunning, she gives the best head butts, she is so grateful
for every meal you put in front of her, she loves a pat but Willow
is FIV +. This was discovered when Willow was de-sexed as all my
cats get tested for FIV upon arrival. Willow had two kittens that
have been re homed to a lovely new owner who couldn’t care
less if the kits come up positive when they are tested at six months
of age. FIV is not a death sentence in any way, it is the same virus
as the human aids but cannot be transmitted between human and feline.
Please, google FIV, educate yourself , take the stigma out of it.
OK, the cat will need to see its veterinarian twice a year, worming
and vaccinating are essential, good food and the virus may never
take hold and of course the cat must be kept confined. Ask yourself
what would you do if someone in your family announced they are HIV
positive, would you shun them? Would you throw them out of home?
Didn’t think so. M/C 956000008910123.956000008834089.

is a little bit lost but he is a purring machine. His coat is semi
long hair, he hasn’t got a bad bone in his body and it wasn’t
his fault he was taken as a free kitten and then got abandoned as
soon as he became inconvenient. When you move it is very easy to
put the cat in the carrier and take the cat with you. No rocket
science there. Unfortunately Björn’s and almost every
other cat I have here have faced the same fate.
What kind of lesson are these people teaching their kids?
Bjorn is proundly sponosred by Graham, Carlee, cats Daisy and Willamina.
Tara, well, she is unhappy and that with reason. She was thoughtlessly
and cruelly abandoned to the pound to be destroyed by strangers.
Her owner didn’t even have the guts to be with her when she
was to be put to death. Tara is named after a beautiful woman I
know and this will help her into a brighter future and a home that
will put her previous one to great shame. Tara should be an only
cat at least to begin with, she needs to get some order in her life
and then add a kitten or more.

Tula and Ned.
a few years old and the most wonderful cat, really no need to adopt
him as I will miss out on him then. We are in love, he is my shadow
whenever I am in his enclosure. But Ronnie was very sick a year
or so ago. He was tested for everything, his mouth was raw and in
the end we put it down to calici virus which will test negative
once it is chronic. I ended up having all his teeth removed, it
hasn’t affected his smile at all but should he live with other
cats these cats must be kept vaccinated as well as Ronnie himself.
He eats wet food but also inhales dry food. He is like a new cat
and I have a feeling he would be the happiest with an owner all
to himself though he gets on well with other felines.
