Re: the gannets!!

Hello Wow sounds like he has taken a real liking to you and your home.

Hello Yes have a look at that page, try all the tips listed! If he was an indoor cat it would be a bit more worring if he'd gone missing outside, but being an outdoor cat he's used to being outside and will have a teritory of his own. When Penny went missing I must admit I didn't really know where s...
