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.

Polly is proudly sponsored by Susie and Terry, cat Trim and former Havenites Jessica/Molly, Dudley & Toby, Lily & Ingi in memory of Max

I want a forever homeTanya
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.

I want a forever homeEsther
Esther this little girl has one dream; she would love a couch to sleep on, in a home she can call her own where she will never again be afraid of not being loved enough. She lost her footing there for a while after her owner cruelly abandoned her and she ended up in the pound with the prospect of death hanging over her for many days. Esther is fine with dogs and she will be fine to have a kitten in her life if you want two cats. M/C 956000004889064

Esther is proudly sponsored by Mary for her sister Carol's birthday.

I want a forever homeBluey
Bluey, fantastic ginger boy, always there for a cuddle. Bluey gets along with everyone and with cats like him and most of the others one sadly has to realise that it is not the animal’s fault it was abandoned but the horrible, heartless acts of the first owner. Why get a cat at all if you have no intention of keeping it? Myers and all toys stores sell teddy bears which would be far more suitable and no suffering need to take place. Shame on such people. M/C 956000004879322

Bluey is proudly sponsored by Caryn, cats Nushka and Jaffa in memory of Chelli

I want a forever homeFlorence
Florence came to the Haven with her little son. She is so sweet, our Florence, and her son is like most kittens, busy playing, sleeping and eating. They would love to find a home together, wouldn’t it be lovely to have mother and son? It is very clear that Florence was turfed out of home when she had kittens and the owner couldn’t give them all away but we will make up for that person’s deed. Florence will again have a home one day and a much better one. M/C 956000005397013.

Florence is proudly sponsored by Karen and Kevin, ex havenites Bibi and Fox (ex Lou and Louella) and in memory of Tigger Jazz, Bear and Babe

I want a forever homeBlossom
Blossom is a little cute flower but with a few thorns when it comes to other cats. Like so many of the white fluffy ones she is so full of herself, she can’t stand competition. She reacted OK when I introduced her to Eddie Dog though and she is fine with kids. M/C 956000004894131.

Blossom is proudly sponsored by Tanya Dellaportas

I want a forever homeVernon
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

I want a forever homeBeauty
Beauty, as a tabby she can’t be anything but the best. Beauty is affectionate, gets along with other cats and dogs. She never says no to a cuddle and is often waiting for me at the gate, perched on her post so I can easily reach her. M/C 956000005588859.

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

I want a forever homeFlot
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 havenite Pirate

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

Heath is proudly sponsored by Kim and her cat Tobey

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

Romanoff is proudlly sponsored by Garry, Jana, Enzo, Cody and Boomy in loving memory of Little Lucy

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

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

I want a forever homeChester
Chester, this gentleman of a cat, found himself surrendered to the pound when he needed his family the most. Senior status is fast approaching and Chester will now face a future as a shelter cat and winter is approaching. I love him, nobody can’t help but love him, he is a favourite with the vollies because we all feel and share his loss, what he feels is a loss because he doesn’t know that a much, much better future awaits him. A person or more that will cherish him for what he is, see him as a family member and not some garbage to get rid of when it becomes inconvenient. 956000001238688.

Chester is proudly sponsored by Liz and Russell and their cats

I want a forever homeJohan
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

I want a forever homeNina
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 of Mitsu

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.

Gaylord is proudly sponsored by Paula Stevens
I want a forever homeRattlers
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. M/C 956000004891122.

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.

Mama Puss is proudly sponsored by Caroline in her great love for cats.

I want a forever homeSamii
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

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.

I want a forever homeErsula
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. M/C 956000005580433

I want a forever homeJeddah
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

I want a forever homeJoel
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.

I want a forever homeRory
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 homeHenning
Henning yet another of these very outgoing, friendly boys. A de-sexed male cat is the best pet one can have. I need to point out that a de-sexed male cat doesn’t spray anymore than a de-sexed female. If they start spraying the cat is either sick or stressed and this goes for both sexes, Stress being the most common factor and there are numerous articles on the net how to deal with it. Henning is not a sprayer, so please, don’t get me wrong here but often these males are over looked because the public believe that all male cats spray, It is not true. Henning would be a great companion for anyone, he is pretty special. M/C 956000005578924

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

I want a forever homeWilde
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. M/C 956000005397861

Wilde is proudly sponsored by Rebecca-Lee and havenites Phoebe, Maximus and Ali.

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

I want a forever homeSusanne
Susanne, this super lovely beautiful cat has enriched the world with five beautiful little babies and then I put a stop to her productive years. Susanne is fine with dogs, she loves a cuddle and she simply is a must have. M/C 956000005395748.

Susanne is proudly sponsored by Dario and Sally.

I want a forever homeJohn Silver
John Silver because he is a silver tabby. The cat is not named after the pirate. John Silver is utterly handsome but he struggles to come to terms with shelter life. He looks reassured when I pat him but he refuses to come out of his hidey hole. Time will help him, a home even more so. There terrified cats have so much to give once they feel confident again. M/C 956000004891270 John Silver is also proudly sponsored by Wendy and Tim, their cats, in memory of parrot Nigel.

I want a forever homeMiriam
Miriam, has been here long enough, she is related to a few of the other cats in the Pucka’s enclosure. She is a beautiful cat but doesn’t sell herself. Miriam is used to dogs and gets on well with her fellow felines. M/C956000003405570.

Miriam is proudly sponsored by Robyn and havenites Alice Jane and Cinders

I want a forever homeAnnie
Annie, beautiful dog-friendly cat has also done her bit for the cat population but lovely as she is I had to put a stop to her breeding days. I could say so much about irresponsible owners, the absolute no caring when it comes to cats, the ‘me’ society we live in and I actually think it should be compulsory for school kids to witness a day at a kill shelter; maybe, maybe then the world may change a tiny bit for the felines. M/C 956000005582123.

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

I want a forever homeWendy
Wendy was dumped in a carrier with her kittens and how anyone can treat a mother cat like this is beyond me. Unfortunately one of the kittens didn’t survive the cramped conditions and for my husband to find them in the morning was pretty devastating. No phone call was made, they were dumped like some garbage. This is not acceptable behaviour when we have pounds, vet clinics, shelters that can be notified if you want to get rid of your cat but cruelty is not and never will be accepted. Whoever did this is entirely at fault as had Wendy been de-sexed she would never have had these kittens but as always everyone can afford to eat junk food, drink and smoke but to get free de-sexing for your cat is far too expensive. Wendy herself is a sweetie but she has had a rough trot in life and god help the person who mistreats a cat of mine. I will make sure Wendy goes to a home she has no idea even exists to make up for what was done to her. M/C 956000004494789.

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

I want a forever homeJessica
Jessica, this beautiful mama cat, will soon be ready to find a home herself with or without one or two of her off spring. Jessica is not keen on other cats but she is very keen on humans and if they have food to offer her love knows no boundaries. M/C to be displayed when Jessica has been de-sexed.

Jessica is proudly sponsored by Carolyn, Alyssa, Tara & cat Bella

I want a forever homeUrsula
Ursula is a tiny female, very unsure of herself upon arrival but after some coaxing she finally accepted a pat and then she wanted more and more. Now she waits for it and looks at me as ‘have you forgotten me?’ if I start patting someone else first. Ursula is so sweet and she is dog and cat friendly. M/C 956000004497774.

Ursula is proudly sponsored by Alexandra in memory of Fizz

I want a forever homeArlene
Arlene was owned but somehow she had kittens, probably because her owner hadn’t bothered to de-sex the cat. Well, Arlene lost her home, she and her little ones found their way to the Haven and here Arlene sits, waiting for a home which may very likely never happen due to fierce competition. It could so easily have been avoided but somehow cats seem to have no value to far too many people. M/C 956000004366154.

Arlene is proudly sponsored by Jo and Bree.

I want a forever homeDeeDee
DeeDee is a young, a bit shy girl who would love to take that final step over to completely trust a human. Deedee is used to dogs, gets along perfectly fine with the other cats and is very pretty. Once her trust is won she will be THE cat. M/C 956000004342077.

DeeDee is proudly sponsored by Amy, Sam and cat Hugo

I want a forever homeBilly
Billy, he is one hungry boy and like most of the cats ending up at the Haven was not de-sexed and I thought a re-testing of FIV was in order just to be on the safe side. Billy is negative and he loves people but I do think food is his first love. Every time we pass his pen a little paw sticks out to haul us in for a pat. One thing Billy doesn’t like are dogs so please, keep this in mind when you’re coming to adopt him. M/C 95600000541485.

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

I want a forever homeLaura
Laura, a black beauty in a longish coat. Laura may not be a spring kitten but she’s not that old either. She had hoped for a home sooner rather than later but it hasn’t happen and she is very eager to find someone that will love her. She is semi alright with other cats. One can always refrain from the mistake I did many moons ago, adopt an adult cat first and then you can add as many kittens as you’d like, the other way around can be slightly tricky. M/C 956000004256576.

Laura is proudly sponsored by Heidi and Havenite Lara/Marli.

I want a forever homeJustin
Justin, a young lad, is very sweet like most positive cats. He has a good friend in one of the other new boys, being washed and being allowed to curl up in bed with him. It is so sweet to see how Justin’s friend looks after him. Justin 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 specie. .M/C 956000005413338.

I want a forever homeKathleen
Kathleen has a tragic story behind her. She has obviously been dumped as she is used to humans but a tad shy. Kathleen had been hit by a car and that’s how she ended up in the pound but the poor girl was also heavily pregnant and aborted her kittens as a result of the accident. She needs all the care she can get, she needs to start believing in humans again, she needs a home and an inside home due to her pale complexion, she doesn’t need skin cancer on top of everything else. M/C 956000004321414.

Kathleen is proudly sponsored by Beth, Rod, Ellie and all their cats as a Christmas present to Kath, a very dear friend of mine

I want a forever homeFreddy
Freddy is another one of the hoarder cats that arrived last winter. He is a tiiny bit weary but when given a chance he loves his cuddles. Freddy is very used to other cats and dogs, being a tabby helps of course, they are kind of special. M/C 956000004377054.

Freddy is proudly sponsored by Liz, her three cats and dog.

I want a forever homeTamika
Tamika is a very friendly cat and she goes well with other cats being young herself. Tamika is fine with dogs and I think she is on the lookout for a family but a single person wanting this beauty will do perfectly well too.

I want a forever homeDolph
Dolph is a young cat and he has been so funny. Dolph arrived with his three siblings from the pound as juveniles. Brothers and sister were quickly re homed but Dolph insisted on being very elusive, ‘don’t touch me, I hate you’ behaviour. Then the time came for Dolph to move out to an enclosure and to muy surprise, who came up to me asking for cuddles. If ever there was a reformed character it would have to be Dolph. Dolph is very used to other cats and dogs.M/C 956000004056584.

Dolph is proudly sponsored by Karen and her cat Lucy.

I want a forever homeBanjo
Banjo has had a hard time getting used to shelter life but he is coming around. It just takes some a bit longer for some cats to realise that kindness and looking after is the key when you run a shelter and many volunteers that offer cuddles. Banjo can have a great future ahead of him if only he dares trust people he hasn’t seen before. M/C 956000004321525.

Banjo proudly sponsored by Jen and Troy, cats Gizzy and Jet

I want a forever homeErling III
Erling the III. Erling is so very affectionate, you can see him watching out for a pat and a cuddle and one can’t help but to love him. He needs to be protected from the sun with his white colouring but who wouldn’t love to have this cat on the couch of a night time watching TV together? M/C 956000004475749.

Evan is a big strong cat, arrived with abscesses and very beaten up from the pound and of course he is FIV positive. He pretends he is this macho guy but pat him and he starts purring. Evan is named after the ranger that saved his life. Please google FIV in cats, take the stigma out of it and come and adopt one of the FIV cats out of Philadelphia. These cats don’t know they carry the virus, don’t act differently from other cats but they must be confined and as a rule they are such people pleasurers. M/C 9560000043452430.

What happened to this little cat no one knows but he is skin and bone, he is FIV positive, he has had such an awful life up till now and only one thing can make it 100%; a home. Please consider changing the world for this helpless little cat, he has done nothing wrong. M/C 956000004369013

I want a forever homeMarcus
Marcus in semi long hair black/white was abandoned by his owner when they moved. A kind neighbour took pity on the cat and brought him to the Haven. Marcus is a bit shy but nothing that some TLC can’t fix. Marcus is fine with dogs. M/C 956000004471851.

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

I want a forever homeGypsy
Gypsy, yet another FIV positive cat. He is the sweetest soul but can’t understand what he is doing in a shelter. Gypsy has had some head trauma, his mouth looks a bit funny and he has lost a tooth but this doesn’t stop him from showing affection when it is bestowed upon him. FIV is a virus, same as HIV but can not be transferred to either humans or dogs, only btw cats.Please read up on FIV and consider giving Gypsy a home. M/C 956000004118640.

Gypsy is proudly sponsored by Tania and Damo, cats Stella and Cinnamon.

I want a forever homeSally
Sally, wonderful cat. She has had kittens and as always mama remains a shelter cat. Sally is very affectionate and keeps her coat in excellent condition. Sally is used to dogs and gets along fine with other cats. M/C 956000008899052.

Sally is proudly sponsored by Sharyn, in memory of Flynn.

I want a forever homeTurbo
Turbo is a brother to Diesel but the two don’t have to go together, they are not particularly close. Turbo is a bit more outgoing and used to other cats as he is also a hoarder cat. Diesel has also been vaccinated against the FIV virus. M/C 956000004449178.

Turbo is proudly sponsored by Diana and her two havenites Texas and Paulette

I want a forever homeGarfield
Garfield, a street cat and he is big. Garfield has been living on and off with people but was never owned and loved as a cat should be. His life hasn’t been easy, he is used to wide open spaces and I can see him on a country property because I don’t think this cat will settle being confined to the great indoors at all times. He loves being groomed, doesn’t want to much picking up and cuddle but he wants pats and he needs patience, not all have been kind to him. Still he is one great cat and a favourite with the vollies. M/C 956000008306804.

Garfield is proudly sponsored by Dakota and her cats.
I want a forever homeHannah
Hannah, well, she discovered the electric blankets on the bed and she sticks to it. I assume this little feline has had experienced a lot of cold in her young life so she is now making the most of the heat. Hannah is sweet, not in your face but never says no to a cuddle and a pat. M/C 956000004334152.

Hannah is proudly sponsored by Emma, in memory of Zona.

I want a forever homeMacca
Macca, another unhappy soul. His owner didn’t want him any longer so he was surrendered to a pound but got out alive. Macca is very sweet and he would love a home where he can start out as the first cat, he has expressed interest in getting a little sister later after he has settled in with his new family. M/C 982000361973358.

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

I want a forever homeVerity
Verity likes a cuddle and she likes her food. This cat is a nice all rounder, gets along with anybody it seems. Verity was of course a free kitten once and as such had no value to her owner. Please, come and show Verity that there are humans out there that can love and cherish an animal for life. M/C 956000004745660.

Verity is proudly sponsored by Claire Smith, cats Poppet, Morris, Zach & Myfanwy from WA.

I want a forever homeLeif
Leif, stunning looking cat. He is not too fond of males of his own specie but otherwise seems to be getting along fine with the girls. He is another cat that has got a lot of time for cuddles and I would say he will need a bit of grooming every now and then. This can be done while you watch TV together on the couch. M/C 982000364600451.

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

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.
