Mother Mayflower's Animal Haven is a forever home for leukemia positive cats. We provide vet care,food, shelter, and endless love to these delightful babies with more strikes against them then they deserve. Because all the cats in the room have leukemia, we provide a rare opportunity for leukemia positive cats to share companionship and emotional support with each other. Leukemia positive cats have been living here for 12 years and during that time I have had the honor to observe and participate in their daily lives. They have shown me how to face a terrible disease with dignity and grace and I would not have missed this time with them for anything in the world. 

Over 400 cats of all ages and breeds have been helped by the kindness and compassion of our supporters. Please donate today and together we can provide a quality life to those who normally are euthanized immediately upon diagnosis as there is usually no place for them to live.  Our wish list includes K.d food from Science Diet, Scoop away litter, and K.d wet food.  A few of the kitties can also eat Friskies pate wet food.  Thank you for your kindness and support.

Congratulations to all our supporters! You have reached the goal set 4 years ago to sponsor the number of cats we had at that time! What a wonderful steady act of support and love. Moving forward we are setting the new goal at $10,000.00 to provide sponsorship to the 50 cats that now reside in our haven. Donate now to continue the support and appreciation shown to these deserving kitties.
Milo sends his thanks Happy New Year

I would like to tell you a story before announcing a new program. Several months ago, an elderly calico named Carol entered our haven and settled into intake . One day, I realized she was looking across the room, intent on the 12 week old kitten's area. Just as I realized how focused she was on their antics, she turned to me and I knew in that instant that she was smiling. Not because of an uplift in her mouth or a gleam in her eye, but because her energy/posture said so. "Aren't the young enjoyable?" passed between us and I said outloud " yes, Carol, they are a hoot!" She turned back to watching them and I realized that inspite of her own cancer and leukemia she was celebrating life and not obsessed with death. Her joy in living had not been corrupted by anxiety or fear. That image of her has reappeared in my mind's eye many times since her passing, and that brings us to the real point of this post. We have a tradition at the Haven of honoring these special kitties and their families by creating a program in their memory. So with Rosa's blessing, we would like to announce the creation of Carol's Calico Cousins. All donations made in Carol's memory will be used to meet the needs of all our calicos, and any torties that are unsponsored. Thank you for caring about our babies and for listening to my tale. Thank you Carol, for your lesson in living life to the fullest.
Carol an inspiration for living and joy

Lynn, so sorry to hear this news. I don't know how you do it. Saying goodbye so often is so hard even knowing that their suffering is over. But I do know that your kitties get the best care and all the loving they need. You do a wonderful job with such caring and devotion! Hope to see you soon.
