We live in the heart of beautiful wooded Hampshire. The big back garden is cat proofed and all the cats have access to it in safety. It is cat orientated so there are trees to climb, shrubs and bushes to play around and under, and long stretches to tear about in.
The boys houses are here and they too get a daily chance to explore, stretch their legs, and mark their territory, following on the boy who has carefully marked before them.
We have a large family, the bigger proportion of which are neuters, who stay on after their breeding days are over. We peaked at 35 members a few years ago, but sadly numbers have dropped a bit since then.
Here are the oldest and the youngest, in a bit of November sunshine! Bengal Catoninetail Umkulu (Kulu, the big one) turned 20 in February , 2011, and little Abyssinian Thickthorn Manuka was just six months old.
