Do I have to book?
In bad weather, bookings are recommended for the indoor cafe. Please check in no later than 10 minutes of your booked time, to avoid your booking being opened up to walk-in(s).
Are there any age restrictions to entering?
Yes. No children under the age of 10 are allowed. There are no exceptions to this rule. Children under the age of 14 may enter but under the strict supervision of an adult.
There must be one adult to accompany every two children in the cafe. If you arrive with more than 2 children, you will be refused entry.
Our cats are not toys, so please guide your children in a healthy interaction with the cats. Remember that even though your children may have cats of their own at home , the situation is not the same. Cat Heaven has 20 cats who do not know you. Give the cats appropriate space and do not restrict their freedom. Please respect the cats, and remember it’s the “ Cat’s Home with Rules”.
What is the capacity of visitors at the cafe?
As the well being of our cats are our priority, the maximum number of people allowed in the indoor cafe is 8 and the outdoor 35.
Can we book the venue for an event?
Yes, on condition all rules are adheared to.
How many cats do you currently have?
We have reached the maximum number of cats permissible. Thus far we have rescued 22 cats.
Cat Heaven offers in-house adoptions. If you love cats, and for some reason (be it living in an estate that do not allow pets, or having a dog that hates cats, or living in an old age home, etc), you can become a Pawparent and adopt a cat at Cat Heaven. A Pawparent does not pay an entry fee, instead sponsors his or her cat(s) to the value of R120 per month. You may visit your cat as many times as you wish and will receive weekly text messages and a selfie from your cat . Your cat also celebrates Catmas and your birthday with gifts, etc. This fee assists in covering the costs of food, medical care and general maintenance of your cat.
“It is with much sadness that I recall the day I was forced to return my rescue cat to the SPCA. The pain and memory of giving up my Siamese 51 years ago is still so vivid. (A family member was told that he was allergic to cats and this was the cause of his asthma, it turned out to be an incorrect diagnosis, as he later had 11 cats of his own).
No cat or person should endure such pain. This is the reason, says Valerie, that we offer adoptions for people unable to have a cat at their own home.
It’s catagious. So join our In-House Adoption Family and love a rescue cat. Meow.
Dr Mia Farr – Veterinarian
Dr Mia Farr qualified in June 2000 from Onderstepoort. From there she worked in the United Kingdom, South Africa and Botswana. She has a keen interest in animal welfare and has spent 7 years working at various animal welfare societies where she developed an interest in surgery.
In her search to improve her skills as a vet she enrolled and completed a certificate in veterinary acupuncture through the Chi Institute of Florida. She is passionate about integrating her skills as a western medical practitioner with complementary medicine such as acupuncture and herbal medicine.
At Animal Matters, they can give your pets a full and thorough check-over whenever it is needed, to determine why they are unwell or to reassure you that they are well and ready to take on the world. Animals can’t tell us what’s wrong or where it hurts so the vets will listen carefully to your concerns and perform a thorough examination to work out what is going on. An annual check-up is recommended to keep on top of any changes to your pet’s health and wellbeing.
Keeping with this we have set up a modern veterinary clinic with the best veterinary equipment to compliment our practice.
