The Wanderer Returns
I heard a commotion outside the house at about four o'clock this morning. Two cats having a fight. Next door's cat, Tabby, likes to mix it a bit with the local felines so I just assumed some stray had been caught out crossing our lawn. But I decided to check it out anyway. It simply couldn't be Connie out there, getting duffed up by Tabby - not after nearly three weeks.
So I lumbered downstairs, opened the door.
And in she ran, my wee cat Connie!
She was meowing like crazy and she was obviously starving. After cuddles - which revealed that she has indeed lost a tremendous amount of weight - we fed her and took her upstairs where she slept on top of our bed.
Today's photograph was taken in our kitchen at about 04:15.
What a relief to have her home.
