(Lost) Cat Blogging - further unwelcome irony
This is not a good time to be a cat owner in Charlton Kings.
Since the Greenbelt weekend, several beloved pets have vanished in the area - (so many that white slavers have been mentioned) and one of them is our lovely Chloe (on the left in the picture).
While Teddy the three-legged ginger pirate cat rolls and roisters his way round the neighbourhood, with a cat bowl in every port, Chloe is gentle, quiet and home-loving...so a fortnight's absence is completely atypical. Her son Tallis is spreading himself about the house as much as possible, in an effort to hide the fact that a 3 cat family currently only seems to be able to muster 1 - but it's not the same.
Why is it that if animals have to go missing, we lose those who are no trouble at all - while wherever I turn, however loud the music, I'm still tormented by the incessant barking of Dillon the Evil Jack Russell? There's no justice - and Hattie Gandhi wants her cat back.
