Rejoice with me for I have found the cat that was lost!

Shaka is back!


He had been hiding in the plumber's workshop behind the house. The plumber told the Wombat this morning that he was sure he'd seen the cat in the workshop yesterday but hadn't been able to get him to come out.

I went straight over and searched the place, calling and calling, but there was no answer for ages and I was beginning to think Mr Kennaugh had been imagining things; then, at last, that distinctive yowl like the quack of a duck answered me and a shame-faced Shaka emerged from his hiding place behind a pile of plumbing supplies.

The workshop door had been open quite often during the time Shaka was missing but for some reason he hadn't taken the opportunity to come out and come home. He is a silly, strange, and stupid cat - but we love him and are utterly overjoyed to have him back.

Thank you to everyone who sent best wishes etc. on the previous posts.

Now to get back the Missing Cat posters from the local shops and report to the vets and the cat shelter that they can stop looking out for him.

Brilliant! So glad he's safely back - it's such a relief to find them when they've been lost like that!

Pop open a can of tuna!

Thank you! We didn't have any tuna in but I gave him some expensive cat food with his favourite crunchy topping.

Hooray, hooray, hooray!
Silly Shaka - is there good hunting to be found at the plumbers? I bet you and Wombat are going round with such huge grins on your faces. Furfles to Shaka.

You realise, of course, that he'll blame you?
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: March 1st, 2011 08:25 am (UTC) (Link)
He did seem to be somewhat annoyed that I hadn't come to get him earlier - ignoring the fact that he could have walked home himself in under a minute if he'd just come out while the plumber had the door open, and that I would have found him much earlier if he hadn't obstinately remained silent instead of doing his usual yowling routine.

Excellent news! I'm so relieved for you :-) I remember how relieved we were when we found Ella when she went missing so I know how you must be feeling.

Now tell him not to do that again!
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: March 1st, 2011 08:27 am (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! I sincerely hope he's learned his lesson.

I am delighted to hear your Prodigal Cat is home. Presumably he felt you were taking him too much for granted and needed your attention refocussing.

I hope he feels you have learned your lesson. No cat would ever admit he had a lesson of his own to learn, but I hope he has now got the wanderlust out of his system.
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: March 1st, 2011 08:28 am (UTC) (Link)
Thank you!

It wasn't much of a wanderlust - he was only thirty feet from the back gate.

Absolutely over the moon that he's back safe and sound from his adventure ::hugs::
