A brand new member of the family

Welcome Harley - our new family member - not that we have seen her much as yet. She belongs to our neighbour's nephew who lives in Harley Street. He is shifting to Melbourne and can't take her so somehow she is ours. Our neighbour has said she will look after her when we go away. We were never going to get another cat after Barbara died and in fact had the sofas recovered. This little - well actually rather rotund - girl is about 5years old and this was the photo sent to tempt us. We have hardly seen her - she raced in the door and hid under our bed. Once we tipped it up she had to emerge and then hid in some of the excellent hiding spots in this house. Finally we lost her and went to bed wondering where she might be. About 5am we heard a tiny meow and there she was up in the chimney of the fireplace in our bedroom. Ian coaxed her down and blocked it up and after a quick eat she hid in our wardrobe. However she is a bit cunning and managed to clear his blockage and is now back up the chimney. James did say she likes to hide..... We have managed to pat her and she has purred so I guess she will come good before too long...

More important - we have just sent out the newsletter so if you don't receive yours, send us an email.

My newsletter was OK, too. I was told that dogs have masters, cats have servants!! Can't see you in this role but he is sure to bring you joy!
