This is a cross - post from the newbie area
I found this site whilst surfing catchat. Until recently (one month) I had a lovely cat called Rosie, I only had her for one year as she was a golden oldie when she came to us from cats protection and she very sadly got liver cancer and had to be PTS. I miss her everyday, especially when I come home and she does not run to the door to greet me. She was a very gentle loyal cat who loved the heater more than anything.
As I can't seem to bear a cat-less life I am looking for another cat (or cats). We live in a ground floor flat, just 2 adults. We could install a flap to give access to communal area but we are quite near a busy road, so indoor cat(s) probably best. Rosie had no interest at all in the outdoors, she ran away from the door if I opened it and cried and cried if I tried to take her outside. My OH is not keen on FIV+ cats, I would be happy to home such cats but I have to respect his feelings I guess so another golden oldie for me, I think. I know some oldies still like to go out but I think there are cats out there who are just as happy with love and and a heater and the odd tin of tuna :-) Or I would be happy to take cats with problems such as blindness or deafness that meant the outdoors was not a good idea for them. No dogs or other pets.
I am in touch with local rescues but if anyone hears of a cat or cats that might be suitable please let me know, I am in the Guildford area, happy to travel and pay expense for you to home-check me. (And of course the donation, just saying happy to cover additional costs of home-check if I find my new friend(s) outside the local area).
looking forward to chatting with you all,
