Kia is home !

return-of-kiaAt 8pm last night, she rushed through the catflap, ate two bowls of food and has crashed out on her favourite chair.  She had been missing for three and a half days and I have no idea what happened to her as she has never been away from home for more than a few hours before.  If cats could talk……

Missing !


Kia – small tabby cat missing from Overdale, Hardings Lane.  Last seen Saturday 10 September at 1.45 pm when she accompanied us through the village towards the church.   Please keep a look out for her .  (She has already lost one of her 9 lives by getting stuck on the roof of Lesley’s barn for 24 hours a few months ago).

Thank you.
