I am a cat person, but I don`t own a cat here or in Canada (RIP grey kitty). No matter where I am I like to seek out nighbourhood kitties to make up for not having a cat of my own. I have some regular routes through my neighbourhood so I can pet cats in their favourtie sunning spots.
Natually I am on the lookout for cats in Sweden. I have not had very good petting success for far (2 out of 7), and I think that a regular kitty route will be far less succesful when the snow falls and the temperture drops. Nevertheless, I will try to make some friends in the meantime.
Swedish kitty report: from what I have seen so far and on my last visit, Swedish cats tend to be all-over larger than Canadian cats. They also seem to be much furrier, but I think that is seasonal. Cats seem kind of skittish (2 out of 7!) but don`t run very far – just out of reach and then they turn around and meow at me. As Graham would say, those cats are totally pettable with enough time for them to get used to me.
