Looking for a good home for our cat

Sim in Streatham Vale
Anyone can rehome our cat ? 6 years old black and white Female named Chelsea :D......Very nice,well behaved,good with kids. Our landlord doesnt accpet pets so this is the reason why we need to give her away. Thanks
Moderated to Oblivion
Sorry but if the landlord doesn't accept pets I wouldn't live there. Hope the cat does find a new forever home though, but it might need a name change for any cat loving football fans!

Please consider signing this petition to ban non recyclable packaging in the UK

Sylvia
in Upper Tooting
5 million tonnes of plastic (and polystyrene) packaging goes to landfill each year in the UK. Much plastic is of course recycled, but for various reasons an awful lot isn't, and instead is buried (discarded on our streets/polluting our seas), taking ... [ more ]

Another thing worth banning would be "disposable nappies". Because they are not! Virtually every one ever made is still in a landfill site somewhere. But I guess Mumsnet couldn't care less.....

Garret Lane Accident 10-01-17

Good morning everyone I write with disturbing news. Yesterday late afternoon there was a double accident outside Earlsfield station whereby a female pedestrian collided with a moped whilst attempting to cross the road. In the subsequent initial ... [ more ]

I used to drive, but at my age I decided to give up my licence because my reactions are slower. Shame more old people don't realise this. Mind you, it's usually the arrogant youngsters who cause the worst accidents.....
Moderated to Oblivion
Nowhere near. Not even close. And pedestrians have priority because we are all born with the right to use the Queens Highway. But motorists need a licence and road tax......

Sarah B: it's FPN not FCN. Fixed Penalty Notice. Two types, Endorseable and Non Endorseable. The first put points on your licence and fine you. The second just fine you. Congratulations if you really didn't know what an FPN is, you've obviously never ... [ more ]

Dmitriy: could be, I worked for the Police not the Council, we ONLY issued FPNs, although at one time we did also issue ECNs for the Council's. That's Excess Charge Notice for overstaying on a meter. You used to get two for that offence, an ECN and an ... [ more ]

Drivers adhering to 20 mph speed limit being subjected to 'harassment' from other drivers

Mel M in Furzedown
During the course of my employment, I drive between Wandsworth, Lambeth and Lewisham on a daily basis. I have done this for many years, but am now finding it very stressful due to the 'harassment' I receive from other drivers when I adhere to the 20 ... [ more ]

As the average speed of London traffic is about 8mph, I can see no reason why the whole of London should not be subject to a speed limit of 20mph. That way everyone would know where they stand and enforcement would be easier. Accidents and deaths ... [ more ]
Moderated to Oblivion
People totally missing the point I made. The AVERAGE speed is already 8mph. Just that nutters speed when on side streets but then hit the jams. OVERALL 20mph speed limit would not make that much difference. And no, it should not just be near schools. ... [ more ]
Moderated to Oblivion
People moaning that slower speeds mean longer commutes should just get up earlier. Your saving time is very unimportant compared to saving lives through not speeding.
Moderated to Oblivion
At the end of the day, if I can't get up earlier, I'd rather be five minutes late for work than several years early for my own funeral (or worse someone elses.....)
Moderated to Oblivion
I realised that, I was just saying my working day was 7 to 7. Or my working night was 7 to 7. Plus half an hour each way on the bus. So you can see I didn't like traffic jams much either.
Moderated to Oblivion
I just couldn't be bothered driving was why I used the bus. Let the poor old bus driver have all the aggro of cyclists and jams, I could read the newspaper.....!
Moderated to Oblivion
As Ian says, budget cuts have decimated the old Traffic Police. But we could install more cameras, they can be used to issue speeding fines. Plus they could monitor other criminal activities as well. Big Brother? Who cares, I've got nothing to hide, ... [ more ]

Speeding is bad all around London. Motorists care nothing for anybody but how quick they can get where they want to go. Selfish and inconsiderate once they get behind the steering wheel of their weapon of choice.
Moderated to Oblivion
Shahid, anybody can look up the stats that prove, as they have for years, that a pedestrian is more likely to survive being hit at 20mph than faster. And why do you need stats to prove basic commonsense anyway?
Moderated to Oblivion
Its not a case of refuting anything that speeding motorists say or believe, it's just a matter of repeating the long established fact that speed kills.
Moderated to Oblivion
Speed deniers. Perhaps rather than impose speed limits we should just ban cars completely and only allow professional drivers on our roads in vehicles that have their maximum speed restricted. To 20mph in cities.
Moderated to Oblivion
Shahid, it is not up to me to prove anything, the figures are in the public domain for anyone who cares about road safety to access, why don't you try it? As for driving, no I gave up my licence recently after 50 years of driving without one accident, ... [ more ]

Actually I gave up smoking about ten years ago....! And my opinion on motorists, especially some commenting on here has always been the same. Unfortunately, lots of innocent pedestrians and other motorists suffer because of their "me me" attitude.
Moderated to Oblivion
Totally wrong again mate. I am all for 20 mph zones everywhere, unlike you, as less speed equals more people alive. You just want consultations and restrictions near schools. I want speeds reduced everywhere for everyone's benefit, not for a few where ... [ more ]
Moderated to Oblivion
Mike, you have to realise that with the average car journey being probably less than ten miles, that could add 250 seconds to a driver's journey. That's over six whole minutes! God forbid they have to lose over five minutes of their lives to maybe ... [ more ]
Moderated to Oblivion
My point is that I agree that a few seconds is not worth a life. But it seems I'm in a minority. Hopefully the 20 mph zones will be increased to slow traffic down.
Moderated to Oblivion
Maria S: I did not mention six miles. The average journey is allegedly ten miles. The extra time by slowing down is apparently 25 seconds per mile. So 10 x 25 would add 250 seconds to an average ten mile journey. Or it did when I went to school (mind ... [ more ]
Moderated to Oblivion
Don't remember saying that 250 seconds was a whole six minutes, but if I did it must have been a senior moment. But whatever, minutes are not worth someone's life, so slow down.
Moderated to Oblivion
So keep slowing down traffic and the figures should get even better then. Although I doubt the two poor people who got hit in London yesterday (one dead so far) would be interested in these statistics.....

I applaud what you say Jo P, but unfortunately I am not optimistic that this will happen in my lifetime. I hope it happens in yours. Since the day mankind first walked upright on two legs we have been systematically destroying the earth in some way, ... [ more ]

Very aggressive cat

A couple of years ago a cat that looked like a small dark leopard started appearing in our garden. I think it's a Bengal and it has lost part of its tail so easy to identify. From the start it was aggressive, frequently attacking our fairly small ... [ more ]

I feel for you and your cat but unfortunately can offer no real practical advice. The owner of this cat is obviously one of those anti social a*holes we all encounter from time to time and is unlikely to respond.

I don't currently have a cat, unless you count the feral I feed twice a day in an attempt to get it to come in, but every cat (all rescues or strays) I've ever had never had a problem with other cats or foxes, except when I had a neighbour with an ... [ more ]

Point taken UnderTheFlightPath, but when it turns up around 5 am every freezing morning, my wife won't turn it away. It's very scared of humans and if it has got a home they must be ill treating it and shutting it out. So we'll show it some TLC ... [ more ]

As I've said it's semi feral and very nervous, can't get hold of it....yet! Funnily enough it's sitting on my patio as I type, probably wants more roast chicken as it had some earlier. How do cats know it's Sunday roast day....?
