Thanks everyone. I am 81, my best pal is Paddy who likes to be called Pad. Chiana who I call Chi Chi is very nervous of strangers, and Pad is the only one apart from she allows to stroke her. I joke she likes to bite me but only if I stroke her too much and she never draws blood.
The lady at the RSPCA told me to keep her in the room for a day or two to get used to being in a home again instead of a cat run. But the first night I was woken up around 1 am with load howling I knew must be her. So I opened the door to the living room and she shot out, so I thought go where you like and went back to bed. Then a few minutes later she jumped on the bed and has slept with me every night since, even sleeps under the blankets daytime.

all perfectly safe. You might like to keep an eye on the daily contributions from elderly friends, and the weekly repeats. I often get lovely pics of animals. I will put up more pics of all my cats soon, and post the link here. I expect you know if you right click on almost ANY photo on a site you can download your own copy of it.
