On Saturday, a young girl knocked on the door asking whether we had seen a fluffy ginger cat. The cat had been missing for a couple of days and she was starting to worry. I hadn't seen it, but promised to keep an eye out for it. I have just been for a walk and on the way back my friend and I heard a cat crying loudly. The noise was coming from the other side of a large hedge at the bottom of my road. Another lady who lived nearby came out of her house and we all stood and pondered where it was coming from. Suddenly the cat appeared from under the hedge and began walking up and down the drive crying loudly. It hesitated for a minute before going into the lady's house. She said she would keep it safe while we went and alerted the owner. Can I ask cat owners whether it is possible that the cat had got lost. It was only about twenty houses from where it lived and was clearly distressed.
