Getting On in Years

Life



So all being well, this time next week I'll be living alone. It isn't a prospect that scares me really, I'm fairly independent. It is going to be a big change though, and I'm currently looking for a kitty cat to call my own. It turns out this is a far harder task than I imagined. Because of my location I have been told I can't take on a rescue cat so that leaves me looking at re-homing a pet or buying a kitten (usually a purebred which isn't cost effective). This is also apparently fraught with danger as people advertise cats they don't own, have no right to sell or they're re-homing one that's been passed around already! So many people out there are shady it's difficult to know what I'm getting in to.

I also celebrate my Birthday tomorrow. My friend Stephen Caliban2017 has kindly donated a very generous d.a membership to me. I need to apologise now to both he and James for not uploading art (or even making any) as I have lost my bloody mouse! I'm hunting high and low for it so I can fully appreciate your lovely gift.

Losing my mind in my old age.



I would also like to highlight this piece of artwork. I have actually ordered this for my wall. I fell in love with it upon sight. I can't explain why it caught me so much but her eyes are haunting and I love the flow of her hair as it blends with the colours. I needed it in my life.

On the plus side, living alone means you can walk about naked.

Not sure why you'd do that in this weather though, but still.

Whats the problem with your location, that stops you having a rescue cat? :confused: Are you on top of a tower block?
My neigbours have two cats that don't get on, maybe they might let one come your way :silentkitty:

It's because we're on a main road. My housemates cat never goes out the front door, he's let out the back straight in to a private courtyard. But that doesn't seem to matter...they are very selective about who they let have a cat. Which is a good thing with rescue cats but it's a shame I can't take one in.

That's daft, I live on a main road too, and none of the cats round here ever have any problems with it, they're probably in more danger in the farm fields behind when it's harvest time. Have you looked on gumtree, there seem to be more honest sellers on there.

I've just reported one on Gumtree. But you're right mostly they were honest (and others got to them before me, 3 kittens went in a matter of hours yesterday).

Looks like I may have found one though after all that. Found a Facebook group of people selling pets locally. Will be more confident when/if he arrives. Fingers crossed

Yeah, I think Gumtree is great, had my last 2 cars off there, much better than ebay or auto trader (for cars). Hope you manage to get a nice cat and we get to see some photos of him. Have you seen the shot of my friends West Highland Terrier [link]
