Hello from Catboy, and some advice please!

Post: # 174308Post catboy »

Hi,

have just found the site and am sure its going to provide for many happy hours reading, one first question though;

Me and my partner (The Badger) been allotmenting for a year now, thoroughly enjoyed it, and we now want to take it all a bit further. Our plan is to move out of our urban life into a rural one, hopefully buying a property and converting it. BUT we would like to hook up with another couple or individual to do this for financial reasons. Does anyone know of sites/publications where we could advertise for prospective co owners?

Can't see why not, Catboy. Although this might not be the right forum - at a guess, I'd say that the majority of people here are already as set up as they want to be. No harm in asking, though (and a mod will soon tell you if there is! :iconbiggrin: ).

Oh - I see you already did :oops:

Hi there and welcome! Does Atom have blue eyes by any chance? We once had a pure white cat with blue eyes who couldn't meow!

actually he has one blue eye and one yellow eye. (and one brown one..noooooo sorry couldnt resist :oops: ) he can mew, but its more like a growly thing...BUT, he can say 'hello' pretty well, which he does when he comes in from outside, (he;s better than a parrot at that) but i think he maybe deaf in one ear as he almost never fetches my slippers/pipe/paper... :icon_smile:

not sure what the rule is for white cats/deafenss/eye colour? anyone?
