We lost our Archie!! But now we've found him..........phew!!
Archie has taken to joining in with doggie walking sessions and is bravely expanding his territory further and further. On Wednesday morning he went with Jason and Sophie to fetch the post (our post box is on the gate at the entrance to the farm about a mile from the house). When Jason was passing the big barn Archie decided to explore the tractors and while he was busy one of the farm dogs (extremely friendly by the way) spooked him and he shot for cover.
Now Jason didn't realise that this was the furthest Archie had explored this part of the farm, so he came home without him. And Archie was stuck!!
Now what's a brave explorer cat to do ... that's right he cleverly decided to just sit and wait for someone to come and get him, and what did we do ... that's right sit and wait for him to come home ... stalemate.
Then last night armed with flashlight (in case of dark emergencies) the rescue party sallied forth, all ready to dig and search.
Within minutes of reaching his last sighted position and after two calls of his name out from the dusty old shed popped a little relieved face, and with a look of reproach for abandoning him he followed us home, ate all of Sophie (the dogs) dinner and fell asleep.
Adventure over.........until next time!!
