I am NOT thinking of getting one until at least June, as we will be away at some point during May.
We have just lost 19 yr old evil cat. A few years ago we lost 18 yr old malevolent cat. Psycho cat only lasted 12 yrs, despite our best efforts, I suspect due to issues from before we rescued him. This is to show that we do look after cats. They have been mainly house cats (four floors, they get to do handbrake turns around the corners of the stairs) or 'playing in garden' which is a small yard. There are issues about rat poison being put down nearby and a very, very aggressive unneutered tom roaming around so I wouldn't like them to roam, but I would look to adopt a cat whose personality would find that okay. Psycho cat hated going outside. Next door's cats seem to roam without too much fuss, although I am always rescuing their tom from the roving aggressor, so I am not dogmatic about that.
I would love to adopt an older moggie, but all the cat rescues seem to have a 'not within 150m of a main road' rule. This would rule us out. Where would anyone recommend we got a rescue?
