Biscuit escapes…

Biscuit - where are you? Well, that’s a first! Biscuit was let into the back garden as normal, on Friday morning, and that was the last we saw of her!

Frantic searching by us on Friday afternoon proved a waste of time, so we resorted to a hand-delivered mail-shot around the local area. No phone calls that evening, so we went to bed.

Plan B is to search the woods when it get’s light tomorrow. I had a real fear that she’d been injured or just got herself lost, as she’s not very street-wise.

We left the patio doors open all night, (being the trusting souls that we are), and a sleepless night followed…

I got up about 6am to find the plasma TV still in place (phew!) but more importantly, and to see Biscuit casually wandering down the steps in the garden from Karen’s direction and the woods (phew again!) – we think she must have spent the night in the woods as she was soaking wet and covered in foliage.

Here’s an idea – a tiny sat-nav (or is that ‘cat-nav’?) chip that can be embedded under the skin of the cat (rather like ID chip that vets encourage you to have done to identify a cat, if lost) that can be tracked using Google Maps or equivalent.

Where’s that email address for Dragon’s Den? :)
