I want a forever homeLots of kittens looking for forever homes!
I have adorable kittens in all sizes and shapes. I know they are appealing to people, they are irresistible, but kittens grow up into cats and will they then be wanted? Please, if you get tempted to adopt one, be honest, be prepared, do you want this cat for the next twenty years? I do my outmost to secure loving safe homes for them, I worry a lot about these little furballs. Will you keep the cat if you have to move? Will you keep the cat even if your new partner doesn’t like cats? My advice to this is, break the relationship with this controlling person and run.

Above all, will you keep the cat you adopted as a cute little kitten because you really wanted a human baby? Remember, these kittens adopted for all the wrong reasons pay with their lives as cats because you wanted a kitten but not the cat. If your kitten will not be part of your life through thick and thin for its entire life then go and buy a teddy bear in the nearest toy store instead. The cats in the pounds, in the kill shelters are not killed by the person performing the act, the animal is killed by its owner who abandoned it. No one but the owner is responsible. Please, think before the cuteness takes over.

I want a forever homeVicki
Vicki, a little dark tortie and I think she may be the daughter of Kicki. She is such a sweet little girl and if possible would love a home with Kicki as the pair was found together. M/C 956000004766116.

Vicki is proudly sponsored by Christine, and cats Teddy Sebastien, Molly and Cheeky.

I want a forever homeKicki
Kicki, she is a stunning very young girl. She arrived with her sister or daugther, a bit difficult to say but I lean towards daughter, Vicky. The pair went to a local house and asked for assistance and they got it. A kind lady called me and asked if there was room for the two and being local girls, I always have room. Kicki is very, very sweet, used to dogs and if possible would love to take Vicky with her into her new home. M/C 956000004726402.

I want a forever homePeggy
Peggy has reached senior status and would love to live in a home with no other cats. She is a very affectionate feline, accepts dogs but for Peggy it is humans that matter. It will be cold in winter for an older girl, maybe someone with a big heart would like some company in front of the fire? M/C 956000004104661.

I want a forever homeMarie
Marie, young and homeless, Marie came with her mum Mara, the cats are not very close as Mara had hoped to have more babies and doesn’t want Marie to hang around. Marie is sad, she is bewildered and I hope so much that someone out thre can see this little cat’s potential and give her a home. Marie is a tabby and as such will be one of the best cats.

I want a forever homeMara
Mara, beautiful and she knows it. Mara arrived with her daughter Marie but the cats are not close and can be separated. Marie doesn’t want her kid to hang around as she had plans for more kittens. Unfortunately I had to make her disappointed by having her de-sexed. Still she likes the big boys and is often seen hanging out with them. Mara is very affectionate and easy going.

I want a forever homePuddington
Puddington, this extraordinary affectionate young cat is looking for a home, inside home. Puddington tested positive to FIV but the good news are that he doesn’t know it, only we do and so much more reason to love him and give him a home. All cats should be kept safe inside their homes anyway maybe with an enclosure attached. FIV cats are just like any other cat but they must be confined and not be let to roam as they can then spread the virus via saliva through biting. They can happily co exist with other FIV cats or cats that are vaccinated against the virus. FIV can not spread to humans, dogs, rabbits only to other cats. Please google FIV and take the stigma out of it because as a rule they are very people oriented cats. M/C 956000004074299.

I want a forever homeRick
Rick, I have so many lovely boy cats in my care and Rick is one of them .He has long legs, is slim, handsome and very approachable for affection. Rick gets along with dogs, seems fine with other cats but that can change if you think of introducing him at home to an adult. Better grab Rich as your first cat, then add kitten upon kitten till you have a dozen or more. M/C 956000004082134.

I want a forever homeBhodhi
Bodhi, her name means awakend. She is a truly lovely little cat, given free to an awful home, has had kittens and then dumped. Some very nice people took pity on this little feline, brought her to the Haven and here she has the chance of finding that home that will include her as a family member, not something to get rid of as a piece of trash when inconvenient. M/C 956000004843613.

I want a forever homeHillary
Hillary this stunning looking girl has loads of personality but one hang up, she doesn’t like other cats. She’s been tried and found guilty. She gets along here with the others because she hasn’t got much choice. She is super affectionate when she is alone with her heart’s desire which could be anyone of you. M/C 956000002813009.

Hillary is proudly sponsored by Sandra, Peter, and dogs Mackey, Kel and Cozzie. Cats Leo and havenite Jessie.

I want a forever homeSim
Sim is nearing senior status, she was no longer wanted as her owner moved house. This cat is a super affectionate feline and thankfully settled in to shelter life without much trouble. Normally these cats go into shock, refuse to eat and need a lot of coaxing to come around. Sim is only spreading love and tenderness around her and would be a wonderful addition to anyone’s homelife. M/C 956000004359224.

Sim is proudly sponsored by Emma in memory of Millie who passed away.

I want a forever homeEmz
Emz a darling of a cat now that she has accepted that humans can be trusted, that they bring food and cuddles. Emz doesn’t like much to be picked up as she hasn’t have much to do with true affection but she wants to be with you. She is fine with dogs but there is often a but; Emz is FIV Positive. A positive cat should live indoors only or with an enclosure. She can live with other positive cats, she comes from a large cat family, or cats vaccinated against the virus. Google FIV and take the stigma out of it. The difference btw a cat with a known condition is that we know they have it. Any cat, any living being, can come down with an cancer eg. M/C 956000004581011.

Adonis, handsome, affectionate, buffy headed great cat. I can see him sprawled on the couch awaiting his human to come home from work, keeping company in the kitchen while meals are prepared, then a cosy evening in front of the TV. M/C 956000004744527.

I want a forever homeCurtis
Curtis, love this cat. He travelled for hours to safe his life, stepped out of the car and entered the Haven where he settled, at first he lived by the food bowls. Knowing they are always full he has got plenty of time for cuddles. He is fine with dogs and lives harmoniously with the other cats. M/C 956000004307112.

I want a forever homeGavin
Gavin another one of these big headed boys. Gavin lived on a farm, new owners moved in and he wasn’t wanted by them. Gavin belted the new cats up as they were in actual fact the intruders on his turf . He lived on what he could catch as he was hungry and with that he was sent off to the pound. Now his days are filled with food in a bowl, cuddles galore, he stand up on his hindlegs to reach a hand and he is one sweet cat. Fine with dogs. M/C 956000004862018.

Gavin is proudly sponsored by Heidi and Havenite Lara/Marli

I want a forever homeBattersby
Battersby lovely young male. He has a way of looking at you as to say; come over here and give me a cuddle, and of course one does just that. He is a settled cat and would suit a family well. M/C 956000004736739.

Battersby is proudly sponsored by Laura, Michael, cats Mathilda and former Havenite Pirate.

I want a forever homeHamish
Hamish, as with all the cats I often wonder why are they here, why were they in the pound? Did the owners just move and leave? What makes people abandon their family member? Whatever the reason, most of these people are not worthy of owning a pet. In this case as with every other single cat I have taken in, I think I can say that the poor creature in question will have a brighter future, The people coming to adopt at the Haven usually do want to make a difference for a havenite, the ones that don’t, well, there are other places. Hamish is a super friendly young boy and handsome. M/C 956000004321272.

Hamish is proudly sponsored by Tim and Leanne, their two cats Jessie and Bear.

I want a forever homeTora
Tora, how to describe her? She is a fluffy white girl and as such rather special as they are. Tora doesn’t like other cats, she is a busybody galore. In the photo she had found the toy bag and had a party in there, rustling around and destroying several pieces that were meant for other cats. I haven’t yet figured out if she is deaf or not, I don’t think so but this cat must be kept indoors because of the cancer risk and by the way, all cats should be kept safe and secure indoors or with an enclosure, they live longer when safe. M/C 956000004077923.

Tora is proudly sponsored Julie & David in the USA in memory of Libri.

I want a forever homeLucy
Lucy, she is the 14th cat that was originally named Lucky that I have taken ownership of. Why name a cat Lucky when the owners have no intention of keeping the cat? Lucky to be abandoned? In Lucy’s case the Haven is her third home and she is anxious to move into her fourth and last home. Lovely little cat, very affectionate and used to kids. M/C 982000356641361.

Lucy is proudly sponsored by Nicole as a wedding gift to Harriet and Andy.

I want a forever homeSirius
Sirius, look at this very handsome male. Sirius tells me daily he has no business in a shelter, it’s just wasting his talents. He wants to be with a loving, doting owner smothering the same with feline affection. Sirius is fine with dogs. M/C 956000004066742.

Sirius is proudly sponsored by Joo and Ellen, cat MissyViray.

I want a forever homeChristmas Cat
Christmas Cat, she is a senior lady and so very sweet. Her only hick up is that she will not tolerate another cat but then again some people are happy to have only one feline in the house. Who out there has the heart and love to give to this great feline? M/C 978000000849556.

I want a forever homeThe Blackwood Siblings
The Blackwood Siblings are sleek, black, young and a bit timid. They have never lived in a house, they haven’t had much to do with cuddles but they were fed by a kind gentleman who found them under his house so have had human contact. The boy likes his pats, the little girl will tolerate them. They will come around to be very worthy members of society, only a little bit of patience and they will become lap cats. There is nothing more rewarding than to win over a feline’s trust. M/C 956000004051503, 956000004076574.

The Blackwood Siblings are proudly sponsored by Heather, cat Sammie, in memory of Annie.

I want a forever homeDan
Dan, my long legged boy. He was not happy coming to a shelter but has settled beautifully. He would be best as someone’s only cat, one can always add a kitten later but then again not everyone wants ten cats or more. Dan is fine with dogs. M/C 956000004118485.

Dan is proudly sponsored by Johannes, Fabian, cats Anna and Havenite Leo/Garnet.

I want a forever homeTyson
Tyson, middle aged, in all black. He loves his cuddles and although I do recommend that cats be safe inside this cat needs some outside time, maybe with an enclosure. Tyson prefers to be an only cat. M&C 956000000455950.

I want a forever homeJohannes
Johannes, brother to Johanna, is a handsome young boy, he is a tad timid but never says no to a pat. He is fine with the other cats and with dogs. It would of course be lovely if the two could go together but is not a must. M/C 956000004307112

I want a forever homeAndrew
Andrew travelled a long way to find sanctuary at the Haven. I am so happy he got the chance to live and to find a home one day as he is adorable. Andrew had an injury on his neck upon arrival and has been nursed back to health and he is now more than ready to go to his new family. Friendly to all. M/C 956000000407606.

Andrew is proudly sponsored by Lou and ex havenites Rose and Dudley in memory of Dougal.

I want a forever homeLorrie
Lorrie was surrendered to the pound by her owner to face death by strangers. It is a very cowardly way of getting rid of one’s pet, a pet that has given nothing but unconditional love, a pet whose life is totally at the mercy of its owner. Why do humans believe they are so superior, why are humans’ interest so much more important? When you adopt an animal it is to be for life, whichever way you do this, from a shelter, free to a home, a stray you take in, you take this animal in as a family member and you don’t get rid of a family member, do you?

I want a forever homeMarco
Marco a big strong gentle cat. He was abandoned by his owner, given food and shelter by a kind lady but she couldn’t keep him as her cat so did the second best thing, took him to the Haven and here he will stay till someone falls heads over heals for this handsome chap. M/C 956000003434253.

I want a forever homeJason
Jason was wandering the streets for some time till finally picked up and brought to safety. It is a harsh world out there. He could so easily have been set upon by dogs, foxes, cars, humans with evil intent or FIV positive cats. Now he luckily escaped all this and is available for adoption. Jason is fine with dogs. M/C 956000003435630.

I want a forever homeSingoalla
Singoalla. That same old story, a kitten was adopted because her owners really wanted a human baby and when the pregnancy finally happened guess who was thrown out of home? Millions of women have babies and keep their cats. Cats don’t kill babies but humans kill cats. I despair for all these babies being born to such parents that can treat an animal like garbage, what an example to set for the child, what hope has the child growing up with such parents?
Singoalla was probably lucky to get out of that home but it doesn’t justify the action of her owners. She is a sweet little thing but would be best as a single cat in her new home. Black is beautiful M/C 956000008901200.

Singoalla is proudly sponsored by Gloria in QLD.

I want a forever homeJanet
Janet in all black. She is not overly fond of other cats but happily accepts humans. She is not for young kids but needs love, affection and food for the more mature owner. Janet will do anything for food, she remembers only too well what it is to starve, M/C 956000003432876.

Janet is proudly sponsored by Saskia and cat Pearl.

I want a forever homeMika
Mika a young cat in white and like most of these long haired white ladies she would prefer to be the only feline in her home to give her owner full advantage of admiring her without distaction. She love the male population of humans and can turn on the charm like few. M/C 956000003004540.

I want a forever homeRusella
Russella is such a sweet little cat. She was clever enough not to go into a trap when her siblings all did and was consequently destroyed. Russella instead hid and only emerged when the rangers had left and was ever since cared for by a kind man and his fellow workers. Then Russella had kittens and help was needed. Amongst pallets and rubble we picked the kittens up with mum and they were all taken to the Haven. The kittens, beautiful and affectionate as they were, were soon snapped up and Russella remains as most of the mothers do. Please, someone come and meet this cat, she will be the gem in your house. M/C 956000004084201.

Russella is proudly sponsored by Nicky, Havenites Lewis, Robbie, Babette and Spencer in memory of Harvey.

I want a forever homeWilhelm
Wilhelm, young, affectionate, so very handsome and so very abandoned. This is a cat everyone should seriously consider adopting. He needs a home so badly, he is scared being in a shelter but puts on a brave face, you can’t help but falling for him.M/C 95600000404822.

Wilhelm is proudly sponsored by Katrina and cat Maya.

I want a forever homeRosanna
Rosanna stunning cat in tortoiseshell. I do wonder so often why certain cats, well, all of them end up in the pound and no owner are looking for them. Mind bogling to say the least. Rosanna has settled in, has no hang ups that I can detect and will be a super family cat.

I want a forever homeSnowball
Snowball, he is one lovely young man. Unfortunately he had no say in his adoption as a kitten. He was adopted because his owners really wanted a human kitten and when they fell pregnant with one, Snowball found himself homeless. This is really ridiculous, millions of people have cats and babies, it is simply sheer ignorance that a cat will kill a baby. Educate yourselves instead, people, stand up for the one that is at your total mercy and that you once gave some sort of a home to without any intention of keeping the little helpess creature., only selfishly thinking of your own wants at the moment. Snowball needs of course to be an inside cat as he is white and can easily get skin cancer. But he is not deaf. Call Snowball and this bundle of joy comes running. M/C 956000003025250.

Snowball is proudly sponsored by Karen and her cat Lucy
I want a forever homeElliott
Elliott, this handsome boy has had some bad encounter with what we think might be a dog. One of his front legs has been badly bitten and Elliott is limping. Still he is such an affectionate cat and loves his food. I can’t of course say yet how he is with other animals as Elliott is still recovering, M/C 956000004314438.

I want a forever homeXena
Xena is a beautifully settled cat. Her first owner had to give her up due to a terminal illness, her second owner turned out to be allergic and so Xena ended up at the Haven. She is very affectionate cat, has always lived as an inside single cat so is not too fond of others of her kind. She loves cuddles and is very playful. M/C 956000001483528.

Narelle is a young cat that has recently reared kittens, done her bit to populate the world with these wonderful animals. Narelle’s duty done, she is now de-sexed and a shelter cat and she does want a home, please. The little cat is very sweet and will be suitable as a family cat, well, suitable in any situation, I would say. M/C 956000004319255.

Marvin, this handsome male is very affectionate. He can play a bit rough so will not be suitable for small kids. He gets along with his fellow inmates rather well and had nothing against Tyco Dog coming in for a visit. M/C 956000004093376.

I want a forever homeRupert
Rupert is a young boy in pale ginger, a little bit timid or rather scared. He can’t understand what he did wrong to be surrendered to the pound, put in a shelter that is no ´life for a cat at all. He seeks his older ‘sister’ out for comfort as much as he can. M/C 956000004092220.

I want a forever homeLorna
Lorna, poor little scared cat. She looks like she has had a very hard life. We can change her life towards something much better, Scared cats will blossom when they feel secure, loved and taken care of. I have numerous examples of this if only a good hearted human will make the effort. Sadly though most people want the outgoing purring cats and the ones that really need some TLC are over looked.

I want a forever homeMandy
Mandy, this little black bob tail cat is affectionate and a darling. Mandy is also FIV positive which really is no big deal. All cats should be kept safe inside their homes anyway maybe with an enclosure attached. FIV cats are just like any other cat but they must be confined and not be let to roam as they can then spread the virus via saliva through biting. They can happily co exist with other FIV cats or cats that are vaccinated against the virus. FIV can not spread to humans, dogs, rabbits only to other cats. Please google FIV and take the stigma out of it because as a rule they are very people oriented cats. 956000004093789.

Socrates, he is a youngish cat and he is very nice. Socrates is used to dogs and other cats. Unfortunately he was allowed to roam and he like so many other cats contracted the aids virus through fighting. FIV cats are just like any other cat but they must be confined and not be let to roam as they can then spread the virus via saliva through biting. They can happily co exist with other FIV cats or cats that are vaccinated against the virus. FIV can not spread to humans, dogs, rabbits only to other cats.

I want a forever homeTiger Lily
Tiger Lily is the first mum this season. She is a street cat but has got loads of potential when not cornered. My bet is that with handling Tiger Lily will become a very settled cat once her kitten rearing days are over. She may not want to be picked up and cuddled all day long but she wants to be a people cat. Tiger Lily is not yet de-sexed nor chipped as she is still rearing babies.

Bootsie is a Memory Cat and wears his name to honour a much loved cat called Bootsie. My Bootsie is unfortunately rather timid but he has a lot of loving in him. Time needs to be spent on him, time needs to be given to him and he will blossom, becoming the lap cat. Bootie is very comfortable with dogs and other cats. Please, consider changing his life, don’t let him die a shelter cat, he is only very young. M/C 956000003142563.

I want a forever homeHodgey
Hodgey, this cat was bought from a pet shop so of course was never de-sexed. Let to roam the streets, having fights with other cats and the outcome was given; Hodgey is positive to aids. To add to his treatment his very loving owners left him behind when they moved away though Hodgey was lucky enough to be picked up by the rangers and so ended up coming here. FIV is not a death sentence, tehse cats can live happy healthy lives, provided they are looked after properly and they must of course not be let out to roam. Vaccinations and worming must be kept up to date and high quality food. Please, google FIV in cats and take the stigma out of it, then come and adopt Hodgey, he is super nice. M/C 956000008407393.

Hodgey is proudly sponsored by Marco in memory of her mother Teresa and his brother Erik.

I want a forever homeRachel
Rachel , she is so sweet, she looks so innocent but life dealt her a hard blow or she would have been out of here by now. Rachel is unfortunately FIV positive, she doesn’t know it, she doesn’t feel any different from other cats but a lot of humans feel awkward about the aids cats. FIV is not a death sentence, the cats need to be confined or live with other aids vaccinated cats. They need regular check ups at the vet, keep vaccinations and worming up to date. High quality food, love in abundance as for any other cat and finally look up FIV on the internet and take the stigma out of it.M/C 956000003662576.

Rachel is proudly sponsored by Gabrielle, Andrew, cats Latte, Casper, Spike, Milo and havenite Mika

I want a forever homeHenke
Henke is a loving cat in shorthair, grey/white. He has obviously lived a lot outside, he can’t get enough of the warmth in his bed and the food which seems to be better than what he was used to. Henke has got no issues that I am aware of, he is OK with dogs, now all he want is a home where he can stay forever and ever. M/C 956000003670653.

Henke is proudly sponsored by Mara and Lillian's cat Tyra

Adopt a senior catSensational Seniors
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.
