Jonathan Livingston Cat

Picture courtesy Mark LyndersayMy name is Compton Andre Welch Jnr and I firmly believe I have met the reincarnation of a cat I had as a pet when I was a teenager.

I’m 63 years [old] and was born in Guyana but came to Trinidad as a baby. I’m a Trini, natural. Now I see we have Venezuelan Trinis crossing the road in a hustle. They don’t give a damn about traffic lights and cars.

I grew up in Barataria, Fourth Street, Tenth Avenue for, like 20 years, before we moved to Maloney. To the plannings, building five.

I never sired any children over the years because I was self-indulgent. It’s unfortunate. But I have not been corrupted by the woman.

I went to Barataria Boys Primary and that was it. I didn’t have secondary education but I had good parents and good upbringing. They taught us things like, don’t block any door! We got licks for that! I never regretted not going past primary education. I think I was actually fortunate because the spirit guided me to art where I learned more by not going to secondary school.
