I want a forever homeHogarth
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.

I want a forever homePekka
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.

I want a forever homeEsmeralda
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 Laura Wood.

I want a forever homeMitzy
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.

I want a forever homeHugo
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.

I want a forever homeHolger
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

I want a forever homeKira
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

I want a forever homeNelson
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? M/C 95600004490950

I want a forever homePrincess
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

I want a forever homeBaxter
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 956000000964454

I want a forever homeMimmy
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 and Bear.

I want a forever homeJimmy
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. M/C 956000005584983

Jimmy is proudly sponsored by Brioni and Hannan, in memory of Dee Dee

I want a forever homeJohns
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

I want a forever homeRadar
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 and his brother Erik

I want a forever homeTobias
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

I want a forever homeDenis
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

I want a forever homeDave
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

I want a forever homeRuben
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.

I want a forever homeVanja
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

I want a forever homeSpike
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. M/C 956000002450293.

I want a forever homeKurt
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

I want a forever homeLeila
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

I want a forever homeWesley
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.

I want a forever homePhillip
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

I want a forever homeSarah
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

I want a forever homeMarty
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

I want a forever homeLisbeth
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 of cat.

Lisbeth is proudly sponsored by Pip, Alex, Ruby, Olivia and their furbabies Stella, Memphis, Saucey, Banjo and Chardy.

I want a forever homeBella
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. M/C 956000002269371

Bella is proudly sponsored by Marty and Mary, cats Max, Pepsi, Moe and Munster

I want a forever homeCasper
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. M/C 956000008887653

I want a forever homeCynthia
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.

I want a forever homeSilvia
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, Maximus and Ali.

I want a forever homeMerlin
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.

I want a forever homeMyrtle
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. M/C 956000005388090

I want a forever homeGinger Girl
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

I want a forever homeBrad
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

I want a forever homeFleabag
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

I want a forever homeJacki
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.

I want a forever homeKerrie
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.

I want a forever homeAprille
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 956000004873040

I want a forever homeRed
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 of Chelli

I want a forever homePolly
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.

I want a forever homeHeath
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 M/C 956000005382673

I want a forever homeRomanoff
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

I want a forever homeRhea
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

I want a forever homeGaylord
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.

I want a forever homeMama Puss
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.

I want a forever homeDexter
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 of it.

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.

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

I want a forever homeTonia
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
I want a forever homeNellie
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 memory of Ken

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.
