i had a look in other threads but couldnt find what i was looking for so if i have missed it apologies!
firstly i believe in allowing cats outside
i had two ginger toms (brothers) from when they were a month old until three years of age renting different properties
first place i had them was in terenure and they had a lot of roaming territory in one direction which kept them away from the main terenure road down from the estate
second place was down a lane set off the monkstown road where they had woodland and lots of estates away from the busy road
they are with my mother last two years (needed to move in a hurry alone and could NOT find a landlord who would allow cats ) in lucan with again plenty of roaming space so no need to go near the n4 (which is quite close) or the main lucan road
i am now living in ballyfermot and would love to have my babies back with me but im just off the sarsfield road (which is really busy) and even though im in an estate cars regurlarly whiz up and down my road at top speed so im wondering if maybe the cats have been a bit spoiled for space and would find where i am now difficult?
i am also considering moving to find somewhere more suitable but even if i can find a landlord who will agree to the cats im wondering how much of a territory they will need...
anyone moved around with cats who can give me some tips?
