of kittens looking for love!
These two little kittens represent a large number of baby cats
at the Haven. All so very affectionate, all so playful, all so
eager to please and all so much looking for ever lasting homes.
Bundles of joy but remember; any animal is for life regardless
what the future may hold and they should all be part of the family.
A cat can easily live for twenty years so please think carefully
before falling for their charms. All animals are totally and utterly
at the mercy of their owners, are you up to it? All kittens from
the Haven have been de-sexed, micro chipped, vaccinated and parasite
Sam is a young happy affectionate boy, most likely a Christmas
present someone couldn’t be bothered with anymore. Sam goes
well with other cats and with dogs and he likes children. MC 956000003251444.

Wolf is a mighty handsome cat and so lovely, goes up on his hind
legs for a pat. Unfortunately he wasn’t much loved by his
first owner but we have discussed it Wolf and I, he is far, far
better off without them as life happy loved lives begin at the
Haven and Wold is more than ready. M/C 956000002220854.
Wolf is proudly sponsored by Celeste and Henry, cats Sally, Darryl,
Babe, Hannes and Tico.
Karen is young and she likes the boys and the boys like her. Karen
can often be seen snuggled up to one of the males and this time
it is ginger Dougal who is the favourite. It is so nice when friendships
form amongst the cats, they do get comfort from one another because
shelter life is barren and rather hopeless. M/C 956000008857318.
Karen is proudly sponsored by Saskia and cat Pearl.
Florian is an all ginger boy, surrendered to the pound by his
owner to be killed but fate wanted it otherwise. Florian is now
safe and he has so much to give, his little body aches for some
pats and cuddles. M/C 956000008847322.
Florian is proudly sponsored by Cheryl, in memory of Zena and
Cia had problems with her family’s dogs or rather the dogs
had problems with Cia. Cia is fine with dogs but she has lost
her family and she is depressed. This cat is normally one happy
little feline and she especially loves bouncy balls and does fetch.
Cia is proudly sponsored by Julie, Kevin, cat Molly and former
havenite Ninya now Bobbie, in memory of Sam.
Dolly a beautiful girl in all black. She is sweet and she loves
to cuddle. Dolly travelled from far away to get to the Haven where
she will be safe till that one person walks into her enclosure
and takes her home. When will it be, Dolly is ready. M/C 956000008858013.
Dolly is proudly sponsored by Rae for Havenite Sam, Muscles, Dee

affection and is one easy going cat.
Frederick is proudly sponsored by Rachel, in memory of ginger/white
DKrystle is a little shy cat in grey/white with a short coat.
She is making progress though and wants pats but is not really
sure if it is safe. It is safe, Krystle, and being here at the
Haven you are safe and we are looking for one great, loving and
ever lasting home for you. Someone will come and you will be happy
and able to forget your past.

and always eager to please. She is also used to dogs and other
cats. MC 956000008846630.

Lorraine a tiny little girl in tabby. She has lost her home and
all she wants is another one but she doesn’t want to be
abandoned ever again, it broke her heart when she found herself
in the pound awaiting death to no fault of her own. MC 956000008856450.

Noula, in all black is a darling. She is young, she is a small
cat and very, very affectionate. Noula is used to dogs and gets
on well with other cats. She was once a kitten free to a ‘good’
home and look where this landed her. M/C 956000008857187.
Noula is proudly sponsored by Linda, Dave and cat Luckie.
Osborne is a young chap, very sweet. He wants a home before the
winter chill sets in, please, pretty please. M/C 956000008847451.
Osborne is proudly sponsored by Deedee, Kyle, furbabies Apple,
Kabuki and Suri.
Amadeus is a very handsome cat in all ginger. He was surrendered
to the pound by his owner and he is now trying to come to terms
with what he did wrong to lose his whole world, everything he
believed in turned out to be a lie. But this poor cat has a future,
the homes I find for my cats are outstanding and they are for
life because I wouldn’t accept anything else from an adopter.
Please, don’t take on an animal on a whim, they are feeling
creatures and they feel pain, loss and affection just as we do,
Amadeus is proudly sponsored by Sharon, cats Fred, havenites Felix
and Fergie, in memory of Harvey.
Mandala was abandoned by her owner as they all are but Mandala
has a few years on her neck and has not taken well to being dumped.
It is very difficult for the older cats to make sense out of losing
everything. I don’t know why she was dumped but I do know
there are no excuses under the sun to desert one’s pet but
death and we should all have made arrangement in our wills, with
family and friends to have our loved ones looked after in case
something happens. Moving house, new boy/girl friend, baby, new
dog, can’t afford it, well, it is not good enough and don’t
get a pet in the first place They are actually living feeling
beings and the grief I see displayed in so many of my cats is
heart breaking. MC 956000008847662.
Mandala is proudly sponsored by Romala.
Jason and Jerome are two juvenile brothers, a little bit shy to
begin with but are gaining in confidence and they can purr. Jerome
is to the left and the brothers do everything together and they
would love to find a home as a pair. M/C 956000008856444 and 956000008847967.
Jason is proudly sponsored by Caryn and Nushka and Jaffa in memory
Jerome is proudly sponsored by Margaret and former Havenite Richard.
Ben is a very handsome cat and judging by his behaviour so far
I think he will best suited as an only cat. He is very affectionate
but whoever owned him didn’t care much about the cat as
he wasn’t de-sexed upon arrival and of course abandoned.
I would say there are many little stumpy tailed cats/kittens running
around in the shire thanks to someone who just couldn’t
bother to be responsible. MC 956000008837462.
Ben is proudly sponsored by Tina and Tony, cats Gismo, Pearl,
Bonnie, Coco and Havenite Sollie.
Francis is a darling little feline. She is only tiny but has affection
for two but note her colouring, she is a tabby. Unfortunately
she was dumped when she got pregnant or shall I say lucky enough
to be rid of the old one and in with a new caring owner that will
love and cherish her as she so rightly deserves. MC 900012000785444.
Francis is proudly sponsored by Carolyn, Alyssa, Tara and cat
Elfrida is a Persian and she is lovely. Unfortunately something
bad has happened in her life and she has this habit of not always
using her tray. Elfrida is so affectionate, loves to be brushed
and she purrs her little heart out. She gets along with other
cats as long as they don’t bully her and she should have
access to the outside, preferably in an enclosure. She is fine
with dogs but she needs to have her confidence built up. MC 956000008831753.
Elfrida is proudly sponsored by Nicky, Havenites Lewis, Robbie,
Babette and Spencer in memory of Harvey.
Molly is named after a loved mother and a woman who loved cats.
My Molly came to me with three little boys and she has taken on
another 5 orphans. All the kittens are doing extremely well under
her care and watchful eyes and they are a bundle of joy. Molly,
the lady, was the very proud and loving owner of senior Ruthie
a cat that was constantly overlooked at the Haven but had a new
lease of life with her owner Molly. Ruthie has now found a home
with Molly’s daughter Jane and her two cats. M/C 956000008629183.
Molly is proudly sponsored by Jane,

Jamie is an affectionate boy which loves to play, the legs in
the back ground belongs to Boop and she is one of his playmates.
Jamie is cat that will suit any situation so don’t let him
linger here for long, please. M/C 956000008848080.
Jamie is proudly sponsored by Anthony and Joy, cats Opal and Ashlee.
Gigi, if ever there was a cat difficult to take a photo of Gigi
hits the mark. The cat is so affectionate the close ups she insists
on will only show her nose. Gigi’s kittens died at a very
young age but the veterinary clinic that cared for her put 4 little
orphans on her and she accepted them readily and has reared the
babies to beautiful kittens in black/white. Gigi is a winner all
around. M/C 956000008459892.
Gigi is proudly sponsored by Paula and cats Pattie, George and
Cindy has reared babies but they were taken off her and Cindy
herself was left in the pound to be put to death. Cindy got rescued
as well as it turns out, she is here. One can’t leave the
mothers in the pounds to face death thinking only the kittens
are worth something. Cindy loves people but is not overly fond
of other cats. She is only tiny but has got a lot of affection
in that little body of hers. M/C 90001200096937.
Cindy is proudly sponsored by julie and David.
Kenneth has finally come out of his shell and is available for
a cuddle. Sadly it is very difficult for most animals ending up
in shelters and they all react differently, some hide, some get
sick, some give up. Kenneth has now decided to give life a go.
He is a lovely cat and would suit in most situations. M/C 956000008909884.
Kenneth is proudly sponsored by Glen in Japan.
Carmichael is such a lovely guy, born in 2008. He too was a bit
shell shocked to begin with but he is out and about now always
available for a cuddle and he is good at it. M/C 956000001563566.
Carmichael is proudly sponsored by Kim and Tobey.
Lucy is a beautiful young mama cat currently on maternity leave
with her three babies. This cat is used to dogs, she loves a cuddle
and once all vet work has been done, Lucy is seriously looking
for a home, she has no wish to be left behind at the Haven after
her kittens have found homes.
Lucy is proudly sponsored by Michelle, Roland, cats Sooty, Holly,
Smooch and LG, dog Harvey.
Lottie, tiny and shy, beautiful in tabby coating. She is uncertain
but pick her up and she leans into you and can’t get enough
of cuddles and loves being stroked on the head. This one is a
winner as all the others. M/C 956000008647408.
Lottie is proudly sponsored by Alicia and cat Cadbury.
Dougal has been very upset ever since he came from the pound.
He thinks it stinks that he should be locked up with a whole heap
of other cats and he is not in a good mood but he is settling.
This cat has very obviously been an outside cat, roaming free
so I can understand his concerns but here he is safe and he has
got a hope of finding himself a country home again. Things will
improve though, Dougal. M/C 956000008648783.
Dougal is proudly sponsored by Lou and ex havenites Rose and Dudley
in memory of Dougal.
Rose arrived with her four very tiny babies from the pound where
she had given birth. No mama should have to go through this but
Rose did but she is now safe, well fed and very comfortable but
not comfortable enough because this cat craves affection and gives
back more than one can ever hope to give her. Rose needs to be
a single cat as she stresses out being around other felines by
over grooming but I have a feeling she will readily accept a kitten
once she has settled. Rose is not concerned about dogs. M/C 956000008837272.
Rose is proudly sponsored by Odette
and her cat Urzsulla as a birthday gift.
Zorro an extremely handsome cat in black with the silkiest coat.
He is a bit weary of humans as if he has had his fair share of
abuse but does he like to be patted especially around the head
and then a little purr can be heard rumbling up. M/C 956000008887751.
Zorro is proudly sponsored by Min and Havenite Jemia/MiMi.
Dale a talkative handsome boy, he so desperately wants someone
to love and behold him till the end of his days and boy, is he
worth it. M/C 95600000862938.
Dale is proudly sponsored by Sandra, Peter, and dogs Mackey, Kel
Sophia is a very beautiful young cat, her coat is longer than
short, she had babies far too young and was turfed out by her
owner as a thank you because they couldn’t be bothered de-sexing
their little kitten ‘free to a good home’. M/C 956000008646444.
Sophia is proudly sponsored by Ruth and Martin, cat Jasper in
memory of beloved Murphy.
Gisela, a beautiful little feline in tabby was scared out of her
wits coming to a shelter. She is coming around but can’t
understand why she is here. What crime did she commit or was it
because her owner tired of her as she is not a little fluffy kitten
any longer? M/C 956000008295817.
Gisella is proudly sponsored by Karen and former Havenite Mary.
Tricia is a super affectionate very beautiful young cat. She follows
me around in the enclosure like a shadow and I try to pat her
with one hand while doing chores with the others. Still she is
not in your face but a cuddle will never go astray with her. Tricia
gets along well with the other cats. M/C 956000008652439.
Tricia is proudly sponsored by Tania and Damo, cats Stella and
Handsome Ville unfortunately has been discovered to have the FIV
virus. He is not a aggressive cat at all so was probably set upon
by an infected tom. Ville loves to be near his humans, he loves
pats but he doesn’t like to be picked up much. These FIV
cats have so much to give, they can’t spread the virus to
humans but they must be kept inside or safe in an enclosure so
not to spread the virus. The virus may never take hold either
and the cat can live a long healthy life provided it gets good
care and vaccinations and worming are kept up to date. Twice yearly
check ups are recommended . Please google FIV and remember what
would you do if someone in your family came home and told you
they suffered from HIV Throw them out or accept the fact? Finally
any cat can get cancer, FIP virus etc, there are no guarantees
in life. M/C956000002208252.
Ville is proudly sponsored by Carolyn.
RJ is a shy young cat, brother to Babs and he comes in all black.
This cat will come around as his sister Bubs have in her new home
with some patience and TLC, he has lived in a house before but
shelter environment does awful things to cats that are already
timid. M/C 956000008830287.
RJ is proudly sponsored by Patricia Kerford in Tasmania.
Lucinda came from the pound and was tested for FIV when she was
de-sexed and turned out to be positive unfortunately. This is
not a cat I would have picked as having the virus and she may
have gone un detected for many years. Lucinda is still a juvenile
and so sweet and loving. This cat would be perfect as a companion
to another aids cat or even a negative cat as long as this other
cat is vaccinated against the virus. I had a feeling of doom when
I got the news about her. I would hate to see her staying as a
shelter cat year in and year out, maybe never finding a home because
of ignorence about the virus. Please read up on FIV and I have
a question. What would you do if a family member came home and
told you he/she has got HIV? These cats can live long healthy
lives, the virus may never take hold but if it does, you have
given as opposed to take.
Lucinda is proudly sponsored by Brea and her cats.
Paula is beautiful, she is all white and sports a semi long hair
coat which she keeps in excellent condition. She must be an inside
cat s she suffers from selective hearing and of course being white.
She will tell when she has had enough of cuddles with a nip but
watch her body language. M/C 956000002711057.
Paula is proudly sponsored by young Zoe.
Bootsie is a Memory Cat and wears his name to honour a much loved
cat called Bootsie. My Bootsie is the ultimate in a male cat,
he is big, he has got this boofy head, he is just adorable. He
wasn’t born yesterday, he is probably middle aged but what
a cat he is. Right now he is a bit over come by the shelter and
hides together with another male under the bunk bed but every
now and then he sticks his round head out for an ear scratch.
Bootsie is proudly sponsored by Chriss, Jamie and havenite Lyra/Dorothy.
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.
Willow is proudly sponsored by Therese and James, cats Sooty,
Kit, Kat, Fergus, Biscuit, Mozart and Savannah, dogs Tayla and
Terry, brother to Susie, obviously has got the same story to tell
as Susie. Terry is a bit more timid than his sister Susie but
such a darling. Being abandoned in this way took a great toll
out of this darling cat. He is just one big scared boy who could
do with a lot of TLC and reassurement. M/C 982009106460984.
Terry is proudly sponsored by Susie and Terry, cats Max and Trim
and former Havenite Jessica/Molly.
Arthur is a shy young boy but he has potential if someone only
could adopt him. These timid cats become very devoted once they
have learnt that the owner can be trusted but remain scaredy cats
with other people which is in itself a good thing as they will
never walk up to anyone with abuse in their mind. M/C.

Thelma is such a beautiful young cat. She hisses at strangers
and purrs when they pat her. This girl needs a totally inside
home due to her pale complexion. She is funny, she is fine with
dogs and really only a kitten still. M/C 956000008840947.
Thelma is proudly sponsored by Koriana Park.
Arvid refused to show himself to begin with. He was so shell shocked
coming to a shelter having lost his home in the common very cruel
way owners have of getting rid of the cats, abandoning them to
fend for themselves and very often the cat starve till someone
alerts the shire to the poor feline’s plight and the cat
is trapped. This young male did nothing to deserve such treatment
but people are cowards and I’ll bet my life on that all
these people soon get another kitten free to an awful home and
the circle continues. 956000008834089.
Arvid is proudly sponsored by Devon Zone, the Devon Rex cats.
Rebecca was surrendered to the pound to be euthanased as her owner
didn’t have the guts to do it themselves after seven years
of unconditional love from their cat. This was their thank you
to her. Rebecca survived the pound and she is now looking for
someone that will stay true to her and not treat her as an ‘until’
cat. Please do not adopt or take in an animal if it is not for
life, the animals as a rule pay with their lives. 956000000283489.

Jane would have a sad story to tell if she could speak. She ended
up in a far away pound with not much hope of getting out alive
but she did. Jane had a very badly injured eye which has been
taken out, she also has a broken jaw but the accident happened
too long ago so the jaw has set and my vet (mind you she is one
of the best) is very reluctant to re set the jaw in case the nerves
will not join up again. Jane though doesn’t let minor things
like this set her back, she loves a cuddle, she eats dry food
and she is one cat I admire with her spirit. Does anyone feel
like I do for Jane?
Jane is proudly sponsored by Karen, cats Dusty and Sophie and
the two tabby brothers.
Skye is a sweet little cat, rather shy but she curls into you
and purrs when held. Skye came to me with cancer on her ears which
has been removed by amputating her ears and once the hair has
grown back on the same she will be even prettier. Skye must be
kept as an indoor cat to avoid this happening again. M/C 956000008852382.
Skye is proudly sponsored by Stella and her pets from Hoppers
Simon’s owner moved away, took the dog with them and left
the cat behind. Simon’s neighbour took pity on him and fed
him but being a lady in her 80’s she tripped over him and
couldn’t cope so Simon came to me. He is a darling cat,
he has like all the others been through so much and is still willing
to give of his affections and forgive the human race.
Simon is proudly sponsored by Chloe and diva cat Kimmy and former
Bertha took her time to settle in as a shelter cat, she kept hiding
and was petrified, couldn’t understand why her owner abandoned
her, nor can I but this is an eternal question with me. Bertha
is semi longhair and all she wants is a place to call her own,
cuddles, food and she’ll be happy. M/C 956000008425156.
Bertha is proudly sponsored by Lee, Greg and cat Precious.
Bee Bee is a Memory Cat in honour of a much loved Bee Bee that
passed away. Havenite Bee Bee is a big strapping lad but coming
to a shelter scared him no end and he finds it hard to adjust.
He is a purring machine though and I am sure If animals could
cry he would. M/C 956000008831647.
Bee Bee is proudly sponsored by Larissa in Sydney.
Scarecrow is a cat named in Memory of a much loved childhood pet.
Scarecrow is a darling cat in all white. I am not sure if he is
deaf or not so let’s say he suffers from selective hearing.
He is still young, he is affectionate and he goes very well with
the other cats but must kept as an inside cat because of his pale
complexion. Microchip 956000008698590.
Scarecrow is proudly sponsored by Roslyn

Michelle has her kitten rearing behind her. She was abandoned
in the worst way possible, trapped inside a flat without food
and water while being pregnant. She is now at the Haven awaiting
a home with an owner she can trust. Michelle was abandoned with
another cat which has since found a home and she gets along with
her fellow felines here ather well.
Michelle is proudly sponsored by Nicole and Siamese cats and sausage

Pippi, great markings on this cat and she is very lovely. She
travelled from far away to find sanctuary and let’s hope
she will very soon find a home never to be abandoned again. She
doesn’t seem to mind dogs. Microchip 956000008697637.

Kym comes in grey and she is not happy being a shelter cat. Kym

Moo and Greg
Minnie Moo and her brother Greg were born in a drain, lived in
a drain and were caught as kittens. They are still weary of people
and no one knows if mum was owned or if she was born in the same
drain. They are scared of people but can be approached and their
sponsor have taken it on herself to ensure they lack for nothing
while at the Haven because I do hope that some day someone will
offer them a home and that they will learn to trust, we are not
all bad after all. Microchip 956000001521526, microchip 956000001472691.

Henrik, handsome and affectionate with a small problem. Henrik
is a FIV positive cat and it came as a surprise to me as he doesn’t
have any of the signs that normally alerts me. He travelled far
to find sanctuary at the Haven and as I do have other aids cats
he has joined them in the enclosure Philadelphia which unfortunately
is rather full now. I found out about his FIV status as I have
all my cats tested for it and maybe he was lucky to come here
as his future might have been doubtful otherwise. Henrik and all
the others are lovely affectionate cats but they must live inside,
negative cats in the household need to be vaccinated against it
or he can live with another positive cat. Feline aids is the same
kind of virus that humans can get but it can not spread between
species. It affects the immune system but at the same time the
virus may never take hold and FIV positive cats are no different
to other cats but they will need to see the vet twice a year,
they have to have their vaccinations and worming up to scratch
and good quality food to boost their immune system. Please google
FIV cats and take the stigma out of it. I have adopted out many
FIV cats and every single one has been or is much loved and cherished
but it takes guts and a willingness to open one’s heart
to someone in dire need of it.
Henrik is proudly sponsored by Lori in memory of much loved Marcus.
Don is a FIV positive cat which doesn’t stop him from being
very affectionate and very fond of food.. He travelled far to
find sanctuary at the Haven and as I do have other aids cats he
has joined them in the enclosure Philadelphia which unfortunately
is rather full now. I found out about his FIV status as I have
all my cats tested for it and maybe he was lucky to come here
as his future might have been doubtful otherwise. Don and all
the others are lovely cats but they must live inside, negative
cats in the household need to be vaccinated against it or he can

and he probably got the virus having to fend for himself trying
to find food fighting other tom cats for survival.

Montgomery has a sad story to tell. He got lost, he was beaten
up by other cats, he starved, he ended up in the pound and he
was found there by his owner and everything was looking up for
him till the owner refused to release him from death row because
he refused to have Mont de-sexed and micro chipped. Well, Mont
got a ride to the Haven where we have Whiskas on tap, he ate two
cans a day for the first week plus the dry food and is starting
to look fabulous and Mont has tested negative to FIV. He should
not be kept with other cats at least not till his hormone level
goes down. Keep him fed and he is happy. M/C 956000008853212.

is to be found. Microchip 956000008831020.

Sarah is another one of these kittens free to a ‘good’
home. What’s so good about it I find difficult to understand
as the poor cat gets turfed out as soon as she is not a cute little
kitten any longer and nor was she de-sexed. Sarah needs an inside
home to protect her pale complexion from the harshness of the
sun with its consequences. Microchip 956000008831344.

Kicki comes in grey tortoiseshell. She is an easy going cat but
she is not suited to small children. She is very affectionate
but when she’s had enough she’ll let you know. Microchip
Kicki is proudly sponsored by Heidi and Havenite Lara/Marli.
Bea is a little calico and she is a tad timid but she wants so
badly to make contact but she is not there yet. Once she gets
the hang of that people can be nice she will most likely be like
glue on us. Microchip 956000008455686.

TommyTomTom has a rather interesting story to tell if he could
as he was welcomed back home as a lost female cat found with an
abscess on the head. The abscess made TTT look like the lost cat
but at the vets the doctor informed the happy and concerned owners
TTT was in actual fact an un de-sexed male and not their cat at
all so TTT came to me. The right cat came back home some days
later. I took one look at TTT, fell in love with this older boy
but it was very clear he was an aids cat and the test showed it
was right. TTT will have a future, the aids hasn’t taken
hold, his teeth and gums are in remarkable order but he has led
a hard life on the streets and the first few weeks he couldn’t
handle his food bowls being empty, now he knows better. Some great
person with an open understanding mind may adopt this beautiful
boy, he deserves a warm loving home and the aids virus can’t
be transferred to humans, dogs, only to other cats if not vaccinated.
TTT will live very happily as an only cat, all he craves is warmth,
it was a cold winter and how many has he been fending for himself?
Open your hearts, read up on FIV and do what some others have
done, let the animal come first.

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.

Nobby came with six other cats that had been seized by the rangers.
Although ‘loved’ by their owners they had been neglected
something terrible and Nobby like the others needed dental surgery
to fix his mouth that had many rotten teeth. All is well now and
Nobby feels like he has a new beginning. Microchip 956000002477931

Conrad is a middle aged food motivated guy and tabby. He likes
a cuddle, preferably after his tummy is full and he is content

woman who wants to spoil her man. Microchip 956000008425516

Ulrik is so handsome but he is so timid
never having known much love in his first year and this has put
a stamp on him. He is out and about now a days but is weary of
anyone approaching he doesn’t know. Cats like Ulrik becomes
very attached to their owner once they feel secure and confident
and maybe Ulrid will get a chance one day but it will take one
very special person.
Ulrik is proudly sponosred by Cheryl in memory of Cain,
who loved cats.
Slinky is so called because she used to
slink around as a kitten. She has since changed her behaviour
but is still not to keen on being picked up and she is very selective
in who gets to pat her. She is a happy cat though and loves to
play and loves the company of her fellow felines.
Slinky is proudly sponosred by Susie and Terry, cats
Max and Trim and former Havenite Jessica/Molly.
Monty a darling of a cat and tabby. He has only just started out
being classed as a senior so lives in the Senior’s enclosure.
He is a tad timid but does he love a cuddle! Used to kids, no
fan of dogs. Please, spare a thought for the oldies this very
wet and cold winter, they have so much to give and ask so little.

Frida a cat that has almost given up hope, she has been a resident
for years now and why? Frida has got this great very clear spot
of ginger on her head. She would give anything for someone to
see beyond her initial shyness and will make a great companion.
Frida is used to dogs.

Mavis arrived as a young mother, babies successfully homed and
now it is Mavis’ turn. She is fun, a bit over weight, one
gets like that when one has starved and don’t know what
tomorrow will bring. In this case tomorrow is still to come because
at the Haven food is always available.
Mavis hopes tomorrow will bring her an owner who will admire her
beauty, keep her safe and warm, never to live on the streets again,
she is even serving herself on a platter.

Raelene, she is such a happy affectionate cat. She arrived with
a kitten that found a home straight away, well, failed fostering
which I love. Raelene will be the perfect cat in any situation.

Leila is only young and she is so desperate for some love and
affection. She would love to once again have a home but this time
a secure one where she will never risk being dumped again, it
was too cold and scary in the pound.

Gladys, the purring cat. Gladys is middle aged, loves people and
has a sunny out look on life. She moved in at the shelter, took
every day as it comes and immediately made friends with many of
the other cats she shares her enclosure with and she is always
available for a cuddle. Gladys is a relaxed cat and would suit
in any kind of household but Gladys has got the aids virus. The
virus has not taken hold but being a FIV cat she must live inside,
her worming, vaccinations must be up to scratch, she should she
her vet twice a year, she can live with other cats provided they
are vaccinated against the virus. Please google FIV, it is not
a life sentence that must end with euthanasia, instead these cats
can live long happy lives and it cannot spread to humans. Take
the ignorance out of the word aids and so many of these cats could
find lovely caring homes.

Clifford is an older cat but oh, so wonderful and handsome. I
do wonder at people who let cats like him go without a second
thought. Have they no heart at all and why did they bother to
have a cat companion in the first place if the animal meant so
little? It was probably the best thing that could happen to Clifford
though, a fantastic home awaits him, I can feel it in my bones.
Clifford is proudly sponsored by Dee, and cats Che and Chiara.
Lolly, along with six other cats were taken from her owner by
the council rangers. Lolly like the others has had a full dental,
she is a sweet cat, never was mistreated in any way but not fed
properly hence her former teeth problem and the cats were left
to breed as they were not de-sexed. All this has now changed and
Lolly has a whole new future awaiting her and lucky the person(s)
who end up with her.
Lolly is proudly sponsored by Kevin and his future Havenites.
Charlie is another one of the cats taken. Charlie also had a dental
and she is a cat that will need a lot of re assurance, she feels
lost and bewildered. All this will change as soon as she finds
a home where she will be loved and cherished, fed decent food
and now she will never have to have any more kittens to worry

Metella in grey tortoiseshell is a very

Shylo is a young deaf female and she is
also a Memory cat. Shylo needs an inside home though she loves
the sun and whoever gives this little girl an ever lasting home
will get a free tube of Filtabac for her ears and nose as she
will try to sun herself through the windows. This little feline
will also need a scratching post as all cats do as sharpening
their claws is something that comes natural to a cat. Deaf cats
very often benefit from a companion animal as they rely on smell,
sight and vibrations and I can help in this aspect as well. Shylo
has had a thorough veterinary check on her ears and no cancer

Violet is so called because she is shy as
one but oh, so pretty. Violet has already been at the Haven for
a year but as I hardly saw the poor girl I didn’t want to
advertise her. Now she is out and about a bit more and she could
do with an understanding owner, she has lived with someone but
shelter life has taken a lot out of this girl. I sometimes wish
the owners could see their cats, see what they do to them when
they abandon them without a second thought. One thing is sure
though, Violet will never be abandoned again.

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
