Well we have a lodger. A stray black cat appeared in our garden late afternoon on Sunday, soaking wet and crying like mad. We let him into our porch and fed him, Hubby went for a walk around the village to see if anyone was out looking for a cat, but nothing. As by this time it was starting to get dark eldest Daughter posted a photo and details on our village facebook page. It got to this morning and no one had come forward. I went off to work and during today he decided to go to our neighbours behind for a few hours. As they hadn't seen our facebook post they also posted about a stray cat but they also took him to a local vet who confirmed that he hadn't been chipped or neutered! They already have three cats so were going to take him to a rescue centre. L, when she got in from school and found he wasn't here, was devastated, so we rang our neighbour and said we would look after him, so he is now back in our porch. I don't honestly think we are going to find his owner. It is only about a year old and very lively so I wonder if maybe he jumped in a van/lorry and landed up in Devon by accident! I have named him Sid after the book 'Six Dinner Sid' which today seems very apt as he has been fed in two houses at least!. I'm not sure I am necessarily ready to take on another cat so soon after losing Suzie but maybe she sent him our way to fill a cat hole in our lives.
Other than all that carry on I have worked a long day today so am shattered - going to put my PJ's on and read my book if I can stay awake.
