Alfie is back :)

This post was almost very different this morning.. Last night i spent a few hours walking round the houses trying to track Alfie as he had gone out early afternoon and not returned for his tea. Very unlike him. At 11pm i went to bed distraught thinking i would be spending today on a missing cat hunt.

However i am pleased to say.. Though i would like to tell him off that he has returned at his leisure in the night and is happily home

He is a little cutie and having cuddles in bed now :)

Lots of kitty love
