It was April 11th of this year when Little Cattie ran away, having been with us just over a week.
We were distraught at her absence. All our neighbours knew to look out for her but we only had one sighting in some shed down the road and that was all. We went to search but found no trace. Whenever we were outside, everyone always kept an eye out for her.
So it has been five months et voilà, Little Cattie has turned up at her old home two miles away. You have no idea just how relieved we are. Every day, I have thought about this beautiful little cattie and wondered where she was and if she was alright.
Meanwhile, Himself, aka Monster (who arrived in the middle of April) is very settled and has no intention of moving, ever, let alone outside for five months. To him, that would be abhorrent.
Twice daily he worships his Tin God who lives in his temple, the fridge.
Monster uses telepathy for communication – “you want to feed me…. you want to feed me…. you want to feed me.”
He also has a throne – well and truly settled here.
We are considering calling Monster “Harry Potter” for his amazing invisibility cloak (not)!
But, I am very grateful, if briefly, that we were part of Little Cattie’s life but more grateful that she has found her way back to her original home all safe and well. I hope her little holiday with us has not changed her in any way.
We live and learn.
