The good news is that our furniture and other stuff was delivered safely from storage in the UK on Wednesday. The two lads that came with the van did a fantastic and professional job.
Our house is now full of the furniture and belongings from two houses!
The bad news is that Daisy has disappeared.
She was last seen four days ago, skipping about on the grass, chasing leaves. We went to the village late morning and one hour later when we got back there was no sign of her.
For the two weeks she spent with us the weather was glorious and then it became pretty foul just as she vanished. Friends reassured us that she would be sheltering safely somewhere and would soon come back. As we are surrounded by huge clods of ploughed earth and the nearest neighbours are a long way away, it’s hard to see how a small kitten could be anywhere safe, and we have searched every inch of our property over and over again. We wonder if she could have been taken by one of the hawks that circle endlessly over the fields that surround us.
In any case we have stopped hoping for the best as it’s just too upsetting to keep thinking about it. I have had cats before that have gone missing and it always ended badly.
We all miss her, including Lulu who spends a lot of time each day looking for her. They had become good friends.
