Chester turns a house into a home
got Chester from Ingrid’s Haven over three years ago. He
had had a couple of homes before that didn’t work out.
He has settled in with us and is part of the family now.
He is my pride and joy. Chester loves to be warm and seeks out
the sunny windowsills and heating ducts. Chester is quite athletic
and scurries and plays with great enthusiasm. He has as much
food as he wants and just leaves what he doesn’t need,
controlling his own weight. Chester ensures that no mice or spiders
bother us. In cold weather Chester is like having a hot water
bottle on your lap.
Without Chester our household would be a cold and sterile place.

Cat's special way with rescue greyhounds.
Small cat, big personality
is a three-year-old who we adopted from Ingrid's Haven back in
March 2003. He has always been the source of much joy to us, although
not always to our older cat Puss!
Bert just oozes character, and he is the most wonderfully socialised
cat we have ever come across.
He led a nomadic life as a kitten, eventually ending up in the
pound which is where Ingrid found him.
Thanks to Ingrid he was given another chance at life, and so we
given the chance to share our home with this fantastic cat.
At the moment our new baby daughter is just getting acquainted
Bert, we think they're going to be the best of pals.

Then someone special came along. The special human had also had
also survived cancer, and took Blanche into her heart and home.

Othello is a senior cat, a lovely gentleman aged around 10

His new mum Angela took the time to email Ingrid to say how
Othello is going, and all about his trip from Ingrid's Haven
at Wallan, Victoria, all the way to Dubbo, NSW.
Angela's email to Ingrid
and a funny fellow
Othello's mum Angela writes:
"One day he was meowing because I was serving custard and
he stood up on his hind legs and just balanced there ... I couldn't
believe it! So then I got some of the custard on the spoon and
held it above him and he gobbled the lot! So that's his new
favourite trick. But because he was doing so well on his diet
I changed from the custard to low-fat yoghurt for the sake of
