Well, he has been and gone. He is a nice man really - we have always got on well. It is just that for any landlord five cats is a lot, and here it is unheard of. He has not read the riot act, but he just can't understand where I am coming from - I think he considers me a bit crazy (maybe I am!). He just kept trying to persuade me that five is too many and that if I can't find a home for them then they would be fine living with the large colony down in the hospital grounds. He said Bosnians consider it unlucky to kill a cat and no one would harm them. But I stuck my ground and said I had tried to find them a home, that if someone came along now I would consider it (like hell!!) but that it would have to be a real home and that putting them outside to live was not an option. So we left it at that. My next fear is catnapping. John, my room mate is now saying they need to go outside during the day like the girls do ( I have so far only taken them out on harnesses) and I am afraid that if I let them out on their own they might 'disappear'. While I am away next week I would not put it past John to let them out. Am I getting paranoid?
