250,000 unwanted pets are killed in pounds
and shelters in Australia every year, just because they can't find homes.
These are innocent animals, whose original human companions
did not take responsibility

and the cats would
like to thank the Robertson, Devagnanam, Reddi and Shaw
families for their generous donations. They couldn't
pick just one cat to sponsor, so the donation is to help all!
A very generous donation has been made to the Haven in memory
of Glenda Boscoe, a lady who loved animals all her life.
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.

cutest, most affectionate little boy with a small problem. Ozzy
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. Ozzy 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. M/C 956000008842478,

Metella in grey tortoiseshell is a very nice
cat indeed. Having been abandoned, having faced death after her
pound stay, she is now safe and has a future to look forward to.
Metella will be suitable in any situation.

a few years old and the most wonderful cat, really no need to adopt
him as I will miss out on him then. We are in love, he is my shadow
whenever I am in his enclosure. But Ronnie was very sick a year
or so ago. He was tested for everything, his mouth was raw and in
the end we put it down to calici virus which will test negative
once it is chronic. I ended up having all his teeth removed, it
hasn’t affected his smile at all but should he live with other
cats these cats must be kept vaccinated as well as Ronnie himself.
He eats wet food but also inhales dry food. He is like a new cat
and I have a feeling he would be the happiest with an owner all
to himself though he gets on well with other felines.
