    Hello @GemBonham. We're very, very glad to have you with us.
    You sound to have an interesting range of leisure pursuits. Do you manage to get to the theatre? And, yes, I love cats too, and have two of them, Rosie and Daisy. I also have a passion for the big cats, and I love birds.
    You will find that you have found a safe place here and are among friends, so please don't be shy of telling us about yourself or of asking any questions. The better we get to know each other, the easier we may find ways to be of use to you.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard
