Facts about Marta

  • Breed: Siamese
  • Color: Brown Or Chocolate (Mostly)
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Greetings, I'm Marta. I'm a regal Siamese mix with sparkling blue eyes and I come from a faraway land where I was Queen, Ruler of the Known Universe. I came here when my famiy moved overseas and couldn’t take me with them.

Being the Aristocat that I am, it was a little hard for me to adjust to having to deal with all these minions in such close proximity. Now that I've relaxed, though, I'm now even almost friends with the cats I live with!

I tend to be very opinionated, but in a normal home situation where I can spread out (girl needs a little room, after all), I'll probably be even more friendly. I'm the first one at the door, ready to greet you when you come home. I'll purr and give you head bonks and I enjoy petting and laptime. At 12 years old, I've earned my right to be handled the way I want to, and will let you know when I've had enough petting with little love bites! I was declawed somewhere along the way, so I will definitely have to be an inside kitty. I'll do best in a calm, predictable home without small children or dogs.

I've realized I can do OK with other kitties, even if they're all beneath me, but I'd really love to find someone who wants just one gorgeous older lady to be the queen of the castle. Even better if I were the only Queen in a 10 mile radius, but I'll settle for one forever family. I will prefer someone who's had experience with catering to the every whim of royalty like myself.

They tell me I'm a senior, but that just means I have a special adoption fee of $60. That includes my negative virus testing, spay, microchip, vaccinations, food and litter starter kit and a free vet visit voucher. Please come by and I'll arrange an audience. Gifts of cat treats are always most welcome.

About Happy Cats Haven

About Our Shelter...

At Happy Cats Haven, we take in homeless Colorado cats and kittens and find them new, forever homes. We give our cats the gift of time: time to recover from the trauma of losing their homes and time to show their true personalities. All cats stay here until they are adopted, unless too ill to survive.

Each adoption is hand-crafted, matching our deep understanding of each cat with the adopters' needs and family members for the perfect match. Adopters also have all the time they need in our comfy colonies to get to know our kitties.

Our ongoing support with classes and online advice continues long past adoption. We have found forever families for over 1,400 cats and kittens since 2011!

All our funding comes from private individuals and grants. Eighty-seven percent of all money we raise goes directly to making sure every cat and kitten is healthy, happy and adoptable. For every full-time equivalent staff member, we saved over 160 cats and kittens in 2015. This was made possible by all of our dedicated, loving volunteers.

We are a 501(c)3 organization, so your donation is fully tax-deductible. If you would like to help us continue our good work, you can go to our website and click on the Help Us tab. The volunteers and kitties thank you!

Our Adoption Process...

Seniors and other special needs cats include the same signing bonus and are $60. Our kittens are $125 for those under 6 months, including the same package. Other adoption specials can be found on our website or Facebook page.
