the return of the native

i don't know if i have shared this on the blog, or not but last year when we moved house my toby cat, my black familiar, disappeared. he stayed one night in the new house and then vanished. we searched all the roads and alleys between here and the old house but there was no sign and he was given up for lost.

until yesterday when the lost dogs' home contacted me and said that toby had been brought in.
someone has been looking after him - he is sleek and shiny and shows no sign of trauma - except that he follows me everywhere and has taken command of my lap, making typing rather difficult). and he is just as matte black as ever - in most photos he looks like a silhouette...
nero and max are a combination of curious and overawed - molly is resigned and there has been minimal hissing.
the boss is back :)
