About

A (Very) Concise Background

I was born and raised in Southwark, which is an area in south London where London Bridge is situated. Throughout my life I lived in areas such as Streatham, Thornton Heath, Battersea, Clapham Common and Wimbledon before leaving England

 

In the autumn of 2000 after deliberating for a couple of years I decided to move to Sweden. I’d already visited the country a number of times and had a number of friends in Stockholm, Göteborg and Skåne.

 

When I first arrived I lived in a north Stockholm suburb called Täby. I lived there for 3 years before moving to Jakobsberg for 5 years. Finally, I moved to Upplands Väsby where I spent my final 2 years in Stockholm before moving south to Skåne where I still live today.

 

I am a servant to 3 rescue cats. I got Molly as a 12-week old kitten in 2010. I then got Eric as a 12-week kitten in 2012. Finally, I found Mischa close to the motorway in March 2018 and she was roughly 6 months old at the time.

 

When I found Mischa she was very frail and probably wouldn’t have lasted more than another day. In the first 6 days with me, she went from weighing 0.7 kg to 1.7 kg!

 

All my cats are lovely, healthy and beautiful but they can be very demanding masters at times but occasionally give me time off for good behaviour.

 

Anyone who has owned a cat will understand what I mean. 🙂
