I know I only posted yesterday but if I don't mention this, I will have forgotten.
Came downstairs this morning to find a bit grey Persion type cat with huge golden eyes lying Sphinx style on the eastern style carpet! His name is Hugo and he enters my house my night, stealthily but I can often hear him coming through the cat flap if I'm awake. If I get up and come down, he shoots out again, looking terrified.
This morning, however, he just lay there, I spoke to him and he allowed me to stroke him. He walked over to the conservatory door and I stroked him again before letting him out. I couldn't understand why he was still there. I found out later, when I heard scrabblings at the front door, when Marmite, another social visiting cat, was trying to get in. The flap had become stuck and once in, in for good!
Well, that's it, I seem to have a home for visiting cats which would be fine by me but Merlin hates them all, apart from tolerating Marmite.
Till next time. (sorry no photographs).
