Ralph a very, very affectionate boy. He has had a run in with
Montgomery but I do think it was a one off because he gets on
fine with all the other cats in his enclosure but enters a human,
the elbows come out. Ralph is a real people cat and would be great
in any situation. M/C 900012001055563
Ralph is proudly sponsored by Sharyn, in memory of Flynn.
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.

Taylor is sweet, sweet young boy. He was so starved upon arrival
he didn’t stop eating for four days non stop. Taylor is
fine with dogs, rather relaxed and I think he would be great as
a family cat. M/C 956000005423341
Taylor is proudly sponsored by Tanya Dellaportas
Fiona wasn’t well liked at the hostel she stayed at last
but who would? Shoved into a cold metal pen, dragged out for cleaning,
anyone would object to this. Here Fiona is very relaxed and forth
coming, she has got room to move, she even strolled out for an
afternoon walk recently, panic amongst us workers as she hasn’t
been her for long but she just had a look around and came straight
back when called. She loves a pat where she sits high up surveying
the world around her. M/C 9560000004889833
Fiona is proudly sponsored by Brioni and Hannan, in memory of
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.
Myrtle is proudly sponsored by Therese and James, cats Sooty,
Kit, Kat, Fergus, Biscuit, Mozart and Savannah, dogs Tayla and
Martha arrived with most of her family of all ages. She is a darling
cat but unfortunately she never got de-sexed and the family grew
and grew. Most of them ended up with me and luckily as a family
they all get along very well. I haven’t been able to see
how she is with dogs yet but with Eddie walking past her pen she
seems to be relaxed. I do think this cat deserves a home and she
has always lived like an inside cat, not being used to the scary,
unhealthy for cats, outdoors. M/C 956000005427061
Martha is proudly sponsored by Tamara and all her work mates.
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
Brad is proudly sponsored by Jill (who was bitten) and her pets
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
Jacki is proudly sponsored by Jane, Pippin, Ruben & havenite
Ruthie in loving memory of Molly
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
Kerrie is proudly sponsored by Liz and Russell and their cats
Lisen is only young but she has a big heart. She loves people
although she doesn’t have much reason to do so having been
abandoned by her owner. But all good things come in a tabby and
Lisen is proof of this. She is a perfect allrounder. M/C 956000005577966
Lisen is proudly sponsored by Emma in memory of Millie who passed
Star this beautiful cat lost her home due to no fault of her own.
Star will not come and smooch around your legs, you will have
to look her up but once she knows you are the one, her affection
is boundless. Star is middle aged in all grey but for a white
star on her chest. This cat has been let down a few times too
many and this time I would like to see her go to a home that will
last for the rest of her natural life. M/C 982000148388551.
Star is proudly sponsored by Karen and Kevin, ex havenites Bibi
and Fox (ex Lou and Louella) and in memory of Tigger Jazz, Bear
Graham is a young lad, he is timid and confused. Still this cat
has come a long way since he arrived from the pound, he even enjoys
a pat now. Is there someone out there that has a heart big enough
to give him a home, let his confidence grow, let him be what he
can be; a loving trusting animal that will come to adore his owner.
Once these cats have overcome their mistrust for humans they become
the most affectionate loving creatures but it may take some time.
Are you that person? M/C 956000004269570
Graham is proudly sponsored by Joo and Ellen, cat Missy Viray
Belvedere was surrendered to the pound at the onset of winter.
Despite having taken rather well to shelter life unlike most other
surrendered cats it is not fair that Belvedere who is nearing
senior status should linger for long without a loving owner’s
lap, enjoying the fire, watching TV with mum or dad while being
stroked assuring him that all is well in his world again. M/C
Belvedere is proudly sponsored by Mary for her sister Carol's
Abbott has a little story behind him. Abbott wasn’t tattooed
upon arrival and even the vets had great difficulties deciding
if he what he was. (94 % of the cats I take in are not de-sexed)
The area under his tail didn’t offer much clue so he was
opened up, no uterus, no hidden testicles but the insides did
show that Abbott is an Abbott and not an Abbottina. When you first
approach him he climbs up high as if to avoid you, then he starts
rolling around purring his delight. A very lovely cat and I would
say he is an Abyssinian cross . M/C 956000004880446
Abbott is proudly sponsored by Marco in memory of her mother Teresa
and his brother Erik
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
Aprille is proudly sponsored by Sally, Laurie, former Havenite
Broadie and her feline friends
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.
Polly is proudly sponsored by Susie and Terry, cat Trim and former
Havenites Jessica/Molly, Dudley & Toby, Lily & Ingi in

Tanya is a beautiful feline in tortie/tabby. Tanya is easy going,
has always been around other cats and is dog friendly. Tanya would
be excellent in all situations. If you can’t decide btw
her and another cat – adopt two cats. M/C 956000005394673.
Tanya is proudly sponsored by Garry, Jana, Enzo, Cody and Boomy
in loving memory of Little Lucy.
Vernon was another trap job and he pretended to be this fierce
cat upon arrival. Now a few weeks later he asks for pats and cuddles.
Vernon probably has lived all of his life outside as his fur was
matted and horrible but guess who I find hugging the electric
blanket at night, Vernon is, with a smile on his face. Lovely
little chap. M/C 956000004487398.
Vernon is proudly sponsored by Melissa, and cats Moulin, Teddy
and havenite Slinky
Flot comes from the same place as Beauty and a few of the others.
He is a busy body, always sticking his nose into what people are
doing and offers himself up for a cuddle or two and then he is
off again. Dog and cat friendly, fine with kids. M/C 956000004880969.
Flot is proudly sponsored by Laura, Michael, cats Mathilda and
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

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

Johan, what can I say? After a hundred tries to get a photo of
him I gave up and asked Kylie to hold him for me. (Note the cats
on Kylie’s nails). Johan doesn’t want to have his
photo taken, he wants to cuddle and to be as near as possible.
This cat is so super affectionate it is almost ridiculous. Johan
is great in eery situation so my advice is to come and adopt him
before you miss out. M/C 956000004889866.
Johan is proudly sponsored by Lisa and Adam
Nina came with three little boys, all rehomed but mum remains.
Nina is a td shy but still puts up with a pat and a kind word.
Nina’s life hasn’t been easy so she is forgiven for
not jumping in people’s arms at first sight. Still she is
a great cat with huge potential. M/C 956000004890542.
Nina is proudly sponsored by Diana and Luke, in loving memory
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.
Gaylord is proudly sponsored by Paula Stevens .
Rattlers is named after a pub but don’t get upset, Rattlers
the cat is not a pub crawler instead he is a lovely laid back
boy who loves a cuddle. Rattlers hasn’t got anything against
dogs and he is well behaved and easy going with his fellow felines.
Rattlers Lina is proudly sponsored by Meredith
Alexandra once a feral little mama cat that has learnt that humans
can be nice. She is still a tad shy but she loves her pats. Alexandra
is dog and cat friendly. M/C 956000003416521.
Alexandra is proudly sponsored by Liza, Ariene and Graham Herschell.
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.
Mama Puss is proudly sponsored by Caroline in her great love for
Samii, a lovely little girl in tortie/tabby. Samii was a bit scruffy
looking when she arrived but this is all in the past and she is
more than ready for a new home. M/C 956000008392539
Samii is proudly sponsored by Lillian, Adrian & former havenite
Nathan, a couple of years on his neck and he has cuddling down
to a pat. Nathan is adorable and very easy going and would siuit
any situation. M/C 956000005587362

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

Ersula, if you want a cat sitting on your shoulder, Ersula is
the one. This cat knows no bounds when it comes to affection and
she has a lot of her siblings and friends here at the Haven if
you should want two cats. Ersula is very cat and dog friendly.
Ersula is proudly sponsored by Annelise and Hans, cat Bindi
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

Joel was caught in a trap as his nose shows. He is a gentle cat,
only a bit overcome having lost his home and ended up in a shelter.
Things will be fine, Joel, I will never let you go to anyone like
your first owners. You and all the cats I have will face a much
brighter future than what you had. M/C 956000005573716
Joel is proudly sponsored by Nicole in memory of Mervis.
Rory was petrified when he arrived and it took him a long time
to come out and about. Now he mingles freely amongst his friends
and often asks for a pat. Dog friendly too. M/C 956000004351562
Rory is proudly sponsored by Katrina and cat Maya
Wilde is a young boy and note he has tabby in him. Tabby cats
are special and very people orientated. Wilde is on the lookout
for a serious owner, he has had enough of being abandoned and
I agree with him. He is a lovely boy that has had a bad start
to life but cats are very forgiving and he is ready to start over.
Wilde is proudly sponsored by Rebecca-Lee and havenites Phoebe,
Maximus and Ali.
Tonia, young sweet little girl that grew up on a farm. Tonia spent
her kitten hood as a shelter cat and now is the question, will
she spend her entire life as a shelter cat? Tonia has everything
going for her, she is beautiful, she is playful, she is very used
to other cats and dogs and she is tabby. M/C 956000004056959
Tonia is proudly sponsored by as a birthday gift to Carla from
her sister Sonya
Nellie arrived with little ones in tow, rescued by a kind man
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

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
