I want to be able to walk back from my neighbours house at night and not be thinking about the Cougar prints in the snow I saw outside my door that morning.
Never mind in Bears (Black & Grizzly) that we have seen on numerous occasions..
I'd like our kitty Cats to have a 'outdoor life' The average life expectancy of a outdoor cat where we live is 3years! The coyotes find them a yummy treat!
We don't want t be more than a 15 - 20 minute drive from the coast...
Not too sure if I would let my cats live outdoors in Spain. There are quite a few homeless cats in Spain, it's become such a problem that they put poison out on the streets to get rid of them without saying anything.
I hate to say it, but I don't think you'll be able to find such a big place to live in Spain as you do in Canada.
I used to live in Ontario and have gone from a 6 bedroom house with lots of property to a 3 bedroom house with much less property in Scotland. The difference in price wasn't much.
That's just the way things are in Europe though. You'll get a smaller house but at least you'll be near the coast without bears or skunks in the backyard
