Tales of the Village - Missing Kitties
January 31, 2016 2:58pm CST
For nearly three weeks our village Facebook page has been filled with photos of a little fluffy black cat called Treacle. Treacle's mum has been keeping local awareness of her missing kitty high with updates on her search for her furry friend. People have been checking their sheds and garages, keeping an eye out for Treacle and offering words of encouragement. That said, I rather suspect that many of us readers had pretty much assumed that poor Treacle was a 'goner'. Suddenly this afternoon, totally out of the blue, came the good news that Treacle had just walked through the cat flap and was home. He was a bit scruffy and a bit skinny but he was back. The prodigal kitty has returned and there is village rejoicing. We're not quite slaughtering the fatted calf but I'm sure his mum will be cracking out the best cat food and giving her boy lots of cuddles and attention. Of course it's highly likely that we'll never know where Treacle has been but I like to wonder if he and my cat Baloo have been partying together the last few days.

@boiboing Cats are so irritating that way. I've lost count of the number of new cats I've got for my distraught wife when one of hers goes missing just for the missing cat to turn up hale and hearty as soon as the new cat is installed and there's no way she'll get rid of the replacement and so it goes on.
