Tortoise shell female aged 10, adopted 9 years ago.  Our coach potato – Where you leave her you will find her!
Has learned “to talk” when the adverts come on and not during a programme.

Red male adopted 5 years ago.  Sadly Bart’s health has been a problem. He had a stroke a few years ago and stamps around lopsided, has lost sight in one eye and has feline leukemia.  With all his aliments including being extremely stressed he is an absolute delight. He is at his best when he comes home from the groomer and still “drugged” – He will then stamp his way around the garden and becomes very amorous.

Mommy’s Boy!!! Black Exotic Persian.  Adopted 5 months ago.  Mad as a hatter and loves chicken and the microwave.  Seldom leaves the kitchen.   Loves to cuddle when he is sure there is no activity in the kitchen.
Tracy van Rooyen

Colour Point female adopted 5 months ago with Josh.  Her mouth is too small for her tongue which leaves her with a protruding tongue.  She is the sweetest little girl and likes to be carried around.  Is happiest when she is lying on her back in my husbands arms – He constantly tells me he “doesn’t like cats”……….She is the only one that comes when she is called.

“we adopted Benson on Saturday and these were the photos I took of him when we got home! Can you believe how he’s just fitting in immediately?No sign of him feeling insecure or afraid because it’s a new environment and new cats… No instead he just got right into the tree and did some birdwatching! Lol.We just looooooove him to bits! He’s so cute and loveable and friendly. How could someone just give him away???”Amanda  Van Wyk

Lovely big yard which Persians can never get over as 90percent are not the best jumpers. Regards Michele. Pls contact me


  3. Good Day

    Can I find out if you have any kittens available Persian / exotic or ragdoll, I have a breeder in town, but was wondering if adopting wouldn’t be better .

    • Hi Linda

      Please read

      this will perhaps make your mind up in not supporting breeders!
      The amount of animals that we rescue from breeders is astonishing, there is no such thing as “good breeders”.

      Reasons to ADOPT a Cat…

      You’re not starting from scratch. When you buy a kitten, you’re essentially bringing an infant into your home- a completely untrained, unsocialized little critter who thinks the crate you bought for him is a jail (and who cries to get out…at 3 AM!).

      Because rescue cats spend time in Joy’s home before they are adopted, they come to you with at least some social skills and some degree of housebreaking and litter training! They are grateful to be rescued.
      The bond is strong. Cats who have not had the best possible start in life-who have been neglected or even abused-tend to be very loyal and affectionate.

      A cat that has been neglected or abandoned once is usually eager to become part of a loving home, where she feels safe and secure, and is likely to act accordingly. We find that rescue cats are generally eager to please their new owners. Puppy/Kitten mill rescues often want to be in your lap at all times and will follow you from room to room, just to be near you.

      Fewer vet fees. Rescue cats have had physical examinations, have been spayed or neutered, have been tested for heartworm, and are up to date on shots. When you buy a puppy or kitten, you pay for the dog AND for kitten shots, spaying or neutering, and any other basic medical expenses. Joy knows exactly what ailments each cat has and knows each cat’s temperament.

      What you see is what you get. When you buy a kitten, you can never really be sure what type of cat you’re going to get. All kittens are cute and playful, but their adult personalities aren’t visible until they’re about one/two years old. So you don’t know whether you’re getting a cat who wants to play all the time (ALL the time!) or a couch potato. When you rescue a cat, you know what the cat’s personality is like and whether it fits with what you want in a cat companion. You also know, in advance, about any problem areas the new owner will have to address.

      It teaches your children good values. Face it-we live in an extremely materialistic society, in which TV teaches kids that everything can be bought, that they should get their parents to buy them everything, and that anything worth having costs a lot of money. Adopting a rescue cat for your family presents a wonderful opportunity to teach your children basic values of compassion and caring, and also about the value of second chances.
      Hopefully this makes up your mind in supporting a real good cause and help giving back 🙂
      Please phone Joy on 082 781 4761 (no sms’s please) and make some time to see all the amazing cats she has that need homes.

      take care

  4. Hi Joy. Just wanted to let you know that ‘all that Jazz’ (jazzy) is doing very well in his new home. he is excessively loved and spoilt. His already had a nose job to fix up his breathing problem and is beautifully shaved to get rid of all the knots he had. The only bad news Jazz has asthma but not a problem, he stayed in hospital for 5 days, is now on cortisone tablets and all is under control. He will be on these tablets for the rest of his life but he has his own medical aid so all problems are sorted out and his as happy as anything. he and my 1female Persian are great friend but him and my grey cat really don’t like each other.
    Thank you again for giving us the opportunity to adopted Jazz, his made a wonderfully addition to the family.
