Found!

Well, our lost boy is home again.
It turns out he was spending his days with a near neighbour (less than 100 metres away!) and her cats. We aren't sure where he was sleeping at night, but as you can see from the photo he certainly doesn't seem to have come to any harm! We've been advised to ground him for two weeks - apparently that's how long it takes to break a cat behaviour. So, he's spent all of today in the house, and apart from a few scratches at the window, he's been fine - here he is basking on his favourite sheepskin rug. We're now thinking of getting a second cat as company for him, although maybe that will just mean two cats to worry about...

That is VERY HAPPY NEWS!
Two cats are a good idea...but judging by the pampering on display in today's photo, your #1 cat might have a problem 'welcoming' any competition!

What a relif that must be for you. Cats can be such a worry, they dissapear and they dont write, They dont call!

Must have been pretty active on his sojourn away from home--needs some sleep to recuperate!

Thank you - we're very very glad to have him home. Good point Chris&Deb - we might have to rethink the second cat..

When I die I'm coming back as a cat. NB Is it possible to change your blogger account so I can give my real email/address? Seems it will only accept a blogger account for comments
