Hello, first post here.

Hello to everyone. I’ve taken the plunge and registered with this impressive forum.

I live in London, England and have been a cat lover for many a year, can’t understand why anyone would not be a cat lover but I guess it takes all sorts to make this big old world.

OK, here’s the big confession right up front . . . I don’t share my life with a cat at the moment. What, no cat? Yep, I know it’s bad, but that’s how it is.

You see, I’m an ‘outside cat’ person. I’ve never had a cat that was indoors only. I know that there are a thousand and one good reasons to keep your cats indoors but . . . I like them to have the freedom to come and go. Here in England it is usual for cats to be indoor/outdoor. Walk down most streets and you will see plenty of felines, you can stop and make friends with them, if they deem you worthy of being their friend of course.

The problem is where I live is a little heavy on traffic, to say the least. I lost my last cat, Basil, to that traffic. I don’t want to risk that again, so until I can afford that ideal home out in the countryside, I remain catless. Still, might not be long before the lottery provides the funds

Don’t suppose that I will be posting much at first, but I intend to read and learn. This looks like a great forum.

Welcome to TCS Larry!

It's good to hear that you are waiting for just the right time to make another cat a part of your life again, I still look forward to hearing all of your stories from kitties past. I'm sure you'll have a great time here!

See you on the forums

Hiya Larry!
Nice to meet you. You're going to learn a lot here, I have. Its a wonderful place to be.
Its good to hear that you are thinking about the safety of a cat by not having one, and Im really sorry you lost your last cat to traffic.
Hopefully one day soon you'll have another cat. Until then, look around and tell us all about the cats you've had the pleasure of knowing!

Hi Larry,

I will kep my fingers crossed that you can soon afford to live in a cat friendly area.

When I lived in th eUK the main priority when I bought a house was that it was cat friendly.

I did the same when I moved here and now live in the mountains well away from roads.

Welcome to the forum

Welcome I'm sorry about your loss. I would feel the same about getting another cat at this time since you live near traffic. Here's hoping you when the lottery soon!
