Angus goes missing

Angus goes missing!

In early March Bossy Boots Angus went missing. He has a terrible habit of getting into cars and not just mine, the DHL man knows to keep the doors closed when he brings goodies for the shop and many a night when I am out on the meals on wheels route I have heard a movement and Angus  emerges from the depths of the catmobile. Twice he has lain on the hazard light switch and run the battery down but he is never far away and suddenly I noticed that he wasn´t around. I knew at once that something was wrong. I had had a migraine all that day, Wednesday, and thinking back I hadn´t seen him since Tuesday morning when he was in one of his  other favourite places, a chair outside the front door and I gave him a cuddle.

It was nearly dark, I called and walked down the road, no Angus, by now I was really worried. 

The next day I searched nearby gardens, spoke to neighbours but not a sign. 

After 16 days I was beginning to despair, but still hoped that if he had got in a vehicle and either been let out or got out that he would make his way back.

Then I went into Es Castell, the nearest town, and when I came out of the shop went to the back of the van and as i opened the door heard a "meow"

It was Angus! I picked him up, fussed him and popped him round to my Vet who I think was as pleased to see him as I was. Angus talked without stopping all the way home - a cat who rarely speaks.

How did he get there?  He was outside No 58 where a lady feeds the street cats so he had not gone hungry. If only they could talk

His travelling days are not over though, he is slowly getting back to his old ways and even took Millie with him on a recent outing  - I just don´t see him sometimes amongst all the cages and sacks of food.

I think that Angus is a gentle giant but friends think that he "menaces", certainly the other cats have a certain "respect" and often move out of his way, but I never see him do anything. I sometimes think of having a sort of "nannycam" to see what he gets up to when I´m out. One thing I do know though, if another cat is on my lap and Angus wants to sit there he just sits on top of them.

They didn´t look impressed when I brought him home, a sort of general sigh -oh him again.
