Hogarth is a senior cat, surrendered to the pound for what reason
I don’t know. Hogarth clearly had something wrong with him
upon arrival and blood tests confirmed he is hyper thyroid and
he is on medication which he will have to stay on for the rest
of his life. Being senior and having a medical problem doesn’t
stop this cat, he takes a leap from his ledge and ends up on your
shoulder and up there it is purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, he oozes
affection this boy. Hogarth is a special needs cat, he may not
have long to live but the time he has I want him to have the best
and that is a home, a warm place to sleep and lots and lots to
eat. Hogarth will come with a starter kit of medication. Maybe,
maybe there is someone out there that is prepared to offer this
cat a place where he can rest his head in his golden years. M/C
Hogarth is proudly sponsored by Natalie (Pestana aka recalcitrant)
and L-Series (aka Shirley)
Pekka a beautiful cat all around but he couldn’t handle
coming to a shelter so has been in isolation being fed up and
convinced that all is not bad. Pekka is picking up and now all
he wants is a home again but please, this time forever. Don’t
break his heart again. My cats are for life and if you can’t
offer this, my cats stay with me. M/C 95600000488248.

Esmeralda lost everything the moment she was taken to the pound.
Little did she know she was to live and she is struggling to come
to terms with living in a shelter not knowing what the future
holds. This cat is stunningly beautiful, timid with reason so
it is paramount she gets into a home quick smart. Esmeralda is
used to dogs. M/C 956000006241007.
Esmeralda is proudly sponsored by Deirdre as a birthday gift to
Mitzy, super sweet little cat, very outgoing and affectionate.
She is one of many surrenders but highly unusual in that she hasn’t
let this affect her outlook on life or towards us humans. She
would be perfect in any situation but like any cat I take in,
please, do not let her see the inside of a pound nor shelter again.
If you adopt an animal, you adopt for life regardless what happens
in your life but death and as we are all heading that way, arrangements
for your family members are to be arranged before death occurs.

Hugo, this big long haired cat has fallen very ill with a fungus
infection for which he is undergoing treatment. Treatment that
will last for 6 months. Hugo himself doesn’t mind much,
he has a warm bed, a very full belly, his own veterinarian in
Dr Darren and a shelter operator that adores him plus vollies
that offer cuddles and pats as much as they find time for. Hugo
is lapping it all up but can for obvious reason not be put up
for adoption just yet. The cat is kid and dog friendly and a big
bundle of hair and joy. Hugo has not yet been chipped as we will
wait with this till he feels better.
Hugo is proudly sponsored by Rebecca in loving memory of Coco
Holger, this handsome tabby boy often hangs out with the other
guys in his enclosure. Holger is a former hoarder cat so has always
had other felines around him. He is very affectionate and would
love to try on that couch he has heard other cats talking about.
His former life was outside with a fallen down shed for shelter
in bad weather. Maybe someone would like to show him how comfortably
life can be as a loved and cherished cat. Holger is more than
happy to let one of his relatives to move with him and they can
have a ball together. M/C 956000004351923

Augustus, a big boned, round headed boy who is full of snuggles.
Dog friendly too. He has me and all the vollies wrapped around
his paws. M/C 956000006249784
Augustus is proudly sponsored by Melissa, and cats Moulin, Teddy
and havenites Slinky and Hannah
Kira is a former little street cat, she is a little bit scared
but approach her slowly, give her a scratch under the chin and
she start to purr. Little cats like Kira often seek out nice people
and this is what Kira did. Her finder couldn’t keep her
so the next best thing was the Haven. Please, consider this little
black beauty, she has so much to give. M/C 956000005584874
Kira is proudly sponsored by Louise in memory of Zen and Freyja
Hannes, tabby, says everything. Tabby cats are so special and
so people orientated and Hannes once he has overcome his shyness
will be no exception. Hannes is dog friendly. M/C 956000006215814
Hannes is proudly sponsored by Jo and Bree
Nelson, this sprightly young man loves people but he tries to
fool us. Nelson was born in an industrial estate and has come
a long way from being a street smart kitten to one that has his
sights on a human bed, a couch for watching TV but most of all;
a loving owner. Will this be you, Nelson is a tabby, mind you?
Nelson is proudly sponsored by Emma, in memory of Zona
Princess is a purebred Chinchilla and as such she was handed in
to a pound, ‘adopted’ from that pound, brought back
because of behavioural issues. This cat was lucky that her devoted
owner sent her back to the pound and so came to me. Her coat was
matted, Chinchillas need DAILY brushing, they can be aloof and
her problem with the litter box I think have been solved by adding
an extra box which are both kept absolutely clean at all times.
Princess was adopted because of her breed and her looks, yes,
she is stunningly beautiful but she is a lot of upkeep. The person
who ‘adopted’ her, adopted the looks, the breed and
totally forgot the cat. This is never to happen again. Princess
didn’t ask to be born, someone ‘bred’ her and
Princess is paying the price. M/C 978102100244059
Princess is proudly sponsored by Alexandra in memory of Fizz
Baxter, this handsome cat was surrendered to the pound because
he was too loud. Yes, he talks but talk back and you have a conversation
going. Baxter is super affectionate and when he gets attention
he loves to cuddle. Baxter is also FIV+ which means twice yearly
vet visits, worming and vaccinations up to date, inside home and
the internet is full of excellent articles about FIV cats and
their care, they are rather normal cats and very, very sweet,
they don’t have aids, they have tested positive to the virus
only. Baxter lived with another female cats, also surrendered,
and Kitty tested negative. Kitty has since been re homed. M/C
Baxter is proudly sponsored by Mat and Phil, havenites Brandon

Mimmy was born in the streets, she has never known a home and
she is shy. These shy cats once they overcome their shyness becomes
very devoted to their owner but it can take time. A lot of understanding
and patience need to be put in place. Mimmy is very used to dogs
but not kids and she needs a mature owner that is willing to give
her a chance. M/C 956000005587956
Mimmy is proudly sponsored by Tim and Leanne, their two cats Jessie
Jimmy, also a street cat, he is so shy and afraid of the human
touch but still he sits there and watches when food is put on
the table. Jimmy is very used to dogs and other cats. Someone
big hearted may want to take him on, the rewards will be immense.
Jimmy is proudly sponsored by Brioni and Hannan, in memory of
Johns abandoned to fend for himself. Well, that doesn’t
work very well for the cat. Johns had the sense of looking up
a family that was willing to feed him but they couldn’t
keep him so it was the pound for Johns and then the Haven. Johns
is a tad timid with new people but spend time with him and he
loves a pat and a rumble in his chest can be heard. Johns is dog
friendly. M/C 956000006261039
Johns is proudly sponsored by Karen and Kevin, ex havenites Bibi
and Fox (ex Lou and Louella) and in memory of Tigger Jazz, Bear
Radar, look at this boy! He is so good looking but he is not quite
sure about humans. In time he will relax and realise not all humans
are bad. My heart aches for these cats, they lose everything,
their world turns upside down, the only thing I can do is to look
after them, assure them that better times are ahead and may it
be so for Radar. What did he do to deserve this? M/C 956000005399758
Radar is proudly sponsored by Marco in memory of her mother Teresa

Tobias is a handsome young man. All his brothers have found homes
but Tobias linger. Tobias is dog and cat friendly but maybe not
for younger kids. Anyone wants to give this young man a chance
before he grows old as a shelter cat? M/C 956000004888280
Tobias is proudly sponsored by Meredith
Denis, big boy in grey. Denis is not too keen on his fellow cats,
he thinks with his looks he is a bit above them all. Denis responds
so well to gentle handling and he will be the outmost lap cat
given a chance. M/C 956000006329013
Denis is proudly sponsored by Annelise and Hans, cat Bindi
Dave has probably been on his own for quite some time and know
what, abandoned cats don’t survive all that well at all.
Dave had fleas, ear mites, acne and was generally skinny upon
arrival. Then he arrived to a soft, warm bed, food as much as
he would like and life wasn’t so bad after all. Dave is
affectionate, never saying no to some cuddle time. M/C 95600006231774
Dale is proudly sponsored by Dario and Sally
Ruben is shell shocked. He had a home, someone put a collar on
him but didn’t love him enough to keep him. Please, when
you are getting rid of your cats, take the collars off. Cats and
collars do not go together and for a cat that has to try to survive
by hunting, a collar can be deadly as the cat may get hooked on
a protruding item or get his jaw or leg caught in it. Dogs and
foxes will find a collared cat easy prey as well. Comiong back
to Ruben he is a sweet soul and the sooner I can get him into
a home so much the better before he gives up. M/C 956000006238618
Ruben is proudly sponsored by Heidi and Havenite Lara/Marli.
Vanja, this little beauty is full of purrs and snuggles. She will
be fantastic in any owner situation, family single as long as
she gets love. Vanja is used to other cats and dogs. M/C 956000005406617
Vanja is proudly sponsored by Julie, Kevin, cat Molly and havenite
Ninya now Bobbie.
Spike, one wonders what happened to him? Spike is only really
a baby, good at purring but he is not quite sure about us humans.
He is in flight mood but a short time spent with a caring, considerate
person will change all this. Little Spike has it all otherwise
and I think he could benefit from another more confident cat.
Spike is proudly sponsored by Michele and cats Marlow and Eliot.
Gareth has now had enough of shelter life.
He is handsome, he gets on with other cats and dogs and all he
wants is a house with toys and food, a loving human or more and
he will be only too happy to share your bed at night, purring
away. But, there is always a but, gareth is timid, he will hide
to begin with but if you have the patience he is the one.
Is this too much to ask from a little chap that was surrendered
as a tiny kitten and has seen all his siblings and pen mates carried
off to futures as loved family members? Why not him? M/C 956000002565417.
Gareth is proudly sponsored by Hollie, her cats Smudge and Biscuit,
rabbits Sasha and Twix.
Lynette is a beautiful girl that has spent far too much of her
life as a shelter cat. Lynette is timid and is constantly overlooked,
why I do not understand if it is not for the simple reason there
are far too many cats here looking for homes. Lynette doesn’t
sell herself, she hopes that someone will see her inner beauty,
snatch her up before she becomes an old cat, she doesn’t
want to die in a shelter and she will repay with mighty purrs.
Lynette is proudly sponsored by Alexandra in memory of Fizz
Kurt, a very handsome FIV positive boy. He is so affectionate
and cuddly and so hard to resist when he approaches for a cuddle.
FIV positive cats carry the virus and their immune system is compromised.
Hence good care, twice yearly veterinary visits, worming and vaccinations
up to date. Inside home with or without an enclosure as all cats
should enjoy and Bob’s your uncle. Inform yourself about
the virus, take the stigma out of it and come and adopt one of
these wonderful people orientated cats. M/C 956000004880069
Kurt is proudly sponsored by Sharyn, in memory of Flynn.
Leila is a black beauty, she will not come and smooch around your
legs, you will have to go to her, convince her that she is wanted
and change her world around for something better. Make her believe
in humans again. Leila lost all she believed to be hers and she
is sad, very sad. M/C 956000004876162
Leila is proudly sponsored by Tanya Dellaportas
Wesley, no way would this cat has passed a temperament test coming
directly from the pound, into a strange veterinary clinic, being
prodded and poked. I took him anyway. He swore at me for the first
whole week but I could see that under all that bad language and
attitude was a cuddle pot galore and I was right. He is the most
affectionate big boofy cat around and he deserves a home where
he can maintain his figure, he likes his food, this cat, almost
as much as he loves cuddles.
M/C 956000005381241 Wesley is proudly sponsored by Tamara and
all her work mates.
Phillip a very handsome FIV positive boy. He is very affectionate,
gets along with all the other positive cats. FIV positive cats
carry the virus and their immune system is compromised. Hence
good care, twice yearly veterinary visits, worming and vaccinations
up to date. Inside home with or without an enclosure as all cats
should enjoy. Inform yourself about the virus, take the stigma
out of it and come and adopt one of these wonderful people orientated
cats. M/C 956000004888811

Sarah, very obviously dumped, then trapped and taken to the pound.
She is not a happy camper, she doesn’t trust people to be
nice to her ever again but I have got news for her; there are
wonderful people out there that would love to adopt a tortie girl
making her believe in kindness. M/C 956000005579193

Marty is long legged talkative boy. He is always available for
some attention and he will tell you all that’s happened
during his day. Marty is fine with dogs and has had no problem
settling in unlike most surrenders to the pound. M/C 941000014059773

Lisbeth, young and homeless. Lisbeth had a so many siblings and
they all went as kittens but for some reason Lisbeth never got
looked at. To say that kittens always find homes is wrong, they
don’t. Some of them stay on in shelters, become teenagers
and inding homes for them becomes increasingly hard. Lisbeht has
always lived with other cats and she is a very dog friendly type
Lisbeth is proudly sponsored by Pip, Alex, Ruby, Olivia and their
furbabies Stella, Memphis, Saucey, Banjo and Chardy.
Bella is a great cat in all white, surrendered to the pound for
reason unknown. Bella had a spot of cancer on her nose which has
now been frozen and provided she gets a home as an inside cat
the cancer will not spread. Her poor teeth needed attending too
but with all this done, Bella has high hopes finding herself a
home where she will be a forever cat, never to be abandoned again.
Bella is proudly sponsored by Marty and Mary, cats Max, Pepsi,
Moe and Munster
Casper is a lovely semi long haired boy. He can be a bit touchy
with the male cats he shares with but seems to be fine with the
girls. He is also fine with dogs, at least my dog Eddie. Casper
needs an inside home due to his pale complexion but then all cats
should be secure I I had my way. Cats that live inside don’t
risk traffic, evil humans with cat traps or poison, no ferocious
dogs, no snakes and no other cats infected with the FIV virus.

Cynthia is a very young mother and will never be a big cat having
had kittens far too early in life. She is a bit timid but with
handling, soft talking she does come around. Cynthia needs to
build up her confidence and once this has happened she will become
a treasure to love and behold. M/C 956000005421138
Cynthia is proudly sponsored by Victoria, Joshua, cats Ginge and
Milo. In memory of Kitty.
Silvia is a young cat from a hoarder situation. All the others
have gone but Silvia remains, maybe because she is a bit weary
of people which she has all reason to be. The good news though
is that she is very affectionate now, loves a pat and a cuddle
and she is used to other cats and dogs. Is anyone willing to give
this beautiful girl a go? M/C 956000004871390
Silvia is proudly sponsored by Rebecca-Lee and havenites Phoebe,

Merlin, this very handsome and affectionate FIV + boy is up for
adoption. Merlin has already made friends with another new comer
and the two can often be seen sleeping together in the same bed.
Merlin has the virus, yes, but the virus is not active and may
never become active. Merlin is just like any other cat, the difference
is that we know he has tested positive. How many owned cats have
been tested? A FIV + cat needs to be confined but so should all
cats be anyway, the free roaming days are over and I agree as
cats actually live longer when not having to battle traffic, dogs,
foxes, humans with evil intent, snakes, you name it. Read up on
FIV, take the stigma out of it and come and adopt one of these
for some reason so very affectionate cats. M/C 956000005409096.

Myrtle is related to Martha but how I don’t know. Myrtle
is very affectionate, she is a tabby after all and will be the
perfect family cat and if no family wants her, someone single
will do just as well, she has got much love and purrs to give.

Ginger Girl comes from a hoarder, every single cat from that place
was ginger but for one who was a grey tortie. Ginger Girl is exceptional
beautiful but she his timid, very shy of people. Ginger Girl and
one of her siblings would be perfect as a stable/shed cat but
arrangements to have the cats locked up initially must be in place
as cats are territorial and will try to get back to their old
haunts. Some of theses cats have already moved on and have proved
to be very efficient in keeping stables rodent free. M/C 956000004468262

Brad, well, Brad is Brad. Brad will suit a place where he has
plenty of room to roam. No people wanting to cuddle him constantly,
no other cats, he will though be fine with a dog but no cosy moments
with the same. Brad arrived at the Haven skin and bone and with
a huge wound on his back which took ages to heal. Because he was
so starved he was allowed to eat as much as he wanted, the vollies
were instructed to feed him on demand, my fault, because he still
thinks he is starving to death every second hour of the day. The
boy is rather portly today and despite having saved him from certain
death he still gives a bite if I should be lured into thinking
he might feel an ounce of gratitude. A pat here and there is all
he wants and then to be allowed to be a free spirit. M/C 956000004115051

Young Fleabag might have had fleas at some stage, I don’t
know, he hasn’t got any now anyway. Fleabag was named by
my vet’s three year old son, Kalle, and although I grimaced
at the name to start with it stuck. Fleabag is super sweet in
all black, gets along with most living things around him and is
a little treasure. M/C 956000005405002
Fleabag is proudly sponsored by Jill and her pets.
Jacki, a tad timid, she wants to but hasn’t yet got there.
A home would be the perfect solution for Jacki to find her confidence
and start living as a happy cat. This cat has a lot of potential
and she is beautiful as well. So far she hasn’t shown any
aggression towards her fellow inmates nor does she seem to worry
about Eddie Dog when he comes visiting. M/C 956000005421762

Kerrie, the sweetest little cat who travelled a long way to find
sanctuary at the Haven. Kerrie has a tragic story behind her,
she had kittens and ended up in a pound. The kittens were taken
by a ‘rescue’ group but they left Kerrie behind to
die. This kind of behaviour is totally and utterly un acceptable.
You either take the whole family or nothing, since when are we
to play god and let the mothers who often have had a very hard
time as it is being abandoned, feeding babies to be sentenced
to death because they may be harder to find homes for. It says
a lot about those people and I sincerely hope that one day they
will wake up and live the rest of their lives full of remorse.
Kerrie is super sweet and only a dainty girl. M/C 900079000064594

Aprille, superbly well put together cat. Aprille loves people,
cats less so. Aprille is semi longhair so will need a helping
hand in the fur dressing department but this can be done while
watching TV together with a soft brush or a brush glove. Any kind
of attention is greatly welcome by Aprille really nice cat. M/C

Red is a few years old, he has been owned as the mark of a collar
can still be seen on his neck. Red is a bit weary of people, god
knows how long he has fended for himself and of course he wasn’t
de-sexed upon arrival. Although I prefer my cats to be secure
inside or with an enclosure I have a feeling Red has spent most
of his life outdoors and he may even be happiest being a stable
cat. Let Red choose, he might surprise everyone to turn into the
greatest couch potao ever. M/C 956000005588155
Red is proudly sponsored by Caryn, cats Nushka and Jaffa in memory
Polly is a young white cat and she would prefer a home without
any other felines. Polly also needs to be strictly inside due
to her colouring, she will be very prone to cancer on the ears
and nose. M/C 956000004878367.

Heath, young and I think deaf or at least very selective hearing.
Heath has settled in nicely after having found his ranking order
in Philadelphia, my FIV enclosure. Yes, Heath is positive to the
virus but this doesn’t stop him from living life to the
fullest and unlike humans he doesn’t know hence he acts
just like any other cat. Heath has of course been a free roaming
cat and hence he contracted the virus. FIV is no death sentence
at all. Good care, inside home, worming, vaccinations and the
really good news are that the cats themselves are not aware of
carrying the virus. Please, google FIV in cats and come and adopt
a couple of the positive ones, they are all adorable. FIV is the
same virus as HIV but cannot be transmitted to any other species
Heath is proudly sponsored by Kim and her cat Tobey
Romanoff, super cat, with one eye. When he was picked up by the
rangers and taken to the vets it was found his eyeball was still
in the socket but shrivelled. Romanoff must has gone through so
much pain when he lost the eye and this probably happened in a
fight because the boy is positive to FIV as well, not that this
deters him. Please google FIV, learn the facts, these cats can
live just as healthy happy lives as any other cat. Then come and
adopt this big smoocher. M/C 956000008254511

Rhea is a little shy girl with red hair. She wants to but she
hasn’t yet overcome her shyness so watches the humans around
her from afar. Rhea took off when she met Eddie Dog but this seemed
more to be caution than anything else. Has anyone got a heart
big enough to take on a little shy cat? Once they have learnt
to trust no cat is more devoted to its owner. M/C 95600000448985

Gaylord comes from the streets, he approached a kind lady who
started feeding him but silly Gaylord brought all the other street
cats with him for nightly feeds and this lady couldn’t cope
with them all. Gaylord came to the haven and judging by his looks
he is a tad worried about the future but so far I haven’t
let him down in regards to food. Socialisation might take a bit
longer but he is one mighty handsome cat. M/C 956000005906325.

Mama Puss is a young girl who has lived on the streets supporting
her kittens till a kind lady be friended her and gave her food.
Once mama Puss was relaxed enough to be picked up a trip to the
Haven took place and please, note, this lady lives interstate
and was unable to take the cats with her. Mama Puss is so sweet,
she is still a bit confused over being at a shelter but she has
her babies with her and my dearest hope is that somewhere out
there someone will overlook her being timid and over her a home.
The payback will be enormous as these cats once they have overcome
their shyness will be the most devoted of pets. M/C 956000005576076.

Dexter is a young cat that was diagnosed as being positive to
the aids virus. FIV is no big deal in itself, good care as any
cat should have, inside home or with an enclosure. Vet visits
twice a year as the immune system in a positive cat is compromised.
Dexter unfortunately has got a bad ulcer in his eye and is under
going treatment, severe treatment, as we don’t want to have
to take the eye out if we don’t have to. Dexter is the sweetest
guy around and once we know about his eye he will be very eager
for a home. Please, google FIV in cats and take the stigma out

Jeddah an all black beauty has many of her siblings and cousins
here but Jeddah was the only one having young ones at foot upon
arrival. Jeddah is timid but once she knows you is a darling.
She comes from a hoarding situation, not having been ill treated
in any way but things got out of hand. Jeddah has now found homes
for all her babies and would dearly love to find one herself.
A bit of patience with this beautiful cat and she will blossom
into a devoted companion. M/C 956000005573637

from an industrial estate. Nellie had only been handled and fed
by men so wasn’t quite sure about all these women she suddenly
was surrounded by. She has accepted us now, we do after all feed
her. Nellie though turned out to be FIV positive while all her
kittens are negative. This little mama cat deserves a home so
badly. FIV is not a death sentence in any way and I do adopt out
rather a few of these lovely cats. Remember that we know that
Nellie is positive, she doesn’t, but what says that a negative
cat wont develop an illness, that something we don’t know.
Google FIV, educate yourself and every single adopter who has
taken in a positive cat just love them, they are for some reason
so people orientated. M/C 956000004496002.
Nellie is proudly sponsored by Genevieve, Jules, Harry and in
memory of Ken
I have a number of Senior Cats, all beautiful
and affectionate. I also know it takes a special kind of person
to take one of these golden oldies in, "they are not value
for money" as one woman coldly expressed it. But I disagree
- they are more valuable and special than anyone could imagine.
There is no price on the love a senior rescue cat will give you.
And some people have the gift of giving, thinking of an older
pet as something to treasure and only wanting to make these last
years on earth happy and fulfilled for a senior that has been
cruelly abandoned when they needed their owners the most and as
I say over and over it is not quantity that counts but quality.
These cats have so much to give, they are so grateful for a warm
spot to sleep in, good food and to sit on a lap being cuddled,
it will be Paradise on earth and you can be the giver.
There are many more cats at Ingrid's Haven that are not listed
on this site - rescued senior cats who have made the Haven their
home. If you would like to help these cats, just contact
