Really difficult sutuation Nick and a lovely cat. I hope it works out OK.
Lyra was a rescue cat and the previous owners gave her up because the neighbours were supposidly trying to steal her and kept locking her in the house. She is so friendly with strangers that I worry similar will happen again.
I think cat guardians just have to accept that their charges are independent and will make their own decissions. Even if an owner has paid money for the cat, they are not possesions. Usually a cat will only seek out alternative accomodation if there is something they are not happy about.
The owner has collected the cat and we have come to an agreement that if it turns up on my doorstep once more he WILL make his partner understand that he,me and the cat cannot tolerate this behaviour.
ASI said before gently,gently.
Dear, departed Dillweed telling us that we were not going away without her

Much as i agree with what you say, UK law states that a pet cat is legal ownership, so even if a cat wants to jump ship it can get awkward if the previous keeper doesn’t want to give up said ‘ownership’.
Today’s walk was the Inishowen Head loop trail, about 10.5km if like us you miss one of the guiding arrows. Was quite hot so Zhukov had to clamber into a ditch for a drink.
After the walk, a swim at Shroove (bracing!) and lunch we headed on to his favorite beach at Portnablagh for some gymnastics.
I hate it when one of our cats gets in amongst the cables behind either the Naim stack or my video stack!
It’s always a dilemma as to whether to chase them out with a long stick if necessary or leave well alone and let them come out delicately when they are ready!
I think that’s the price of having pets. I still wouldn’t want to do without them.
In the beginning, I always went crazy when one of them disappeared behind the TV or the stereo. Over time I became more relaxed. She soon comes out again on her own without biting any cables. I just check that all the plugs are still firmly in place.
When she was young, however, Lucky nibbled at a few speaker cables, mainly Kimber and Siltech, NACA5 was obviously not to her liking.
Here’s my beautiful cat Mo.
However, he keeps biting my toes at night and waking me up, so I selected him in Photoshop and used the new ‘Generative Fill’ feature to change him to a dog in seconds. Hopefully I can get some sleep now.

Mo still knows where you sleep!

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend
Drove over to Portnoo to meet a friend for coffee. Zhukov communed with multiple other dogs outside the cafe before installing himself under the table and thinking about my carrot cake.
Afterwards we went for a walk on the beach there. Well when I say “on” the beach…
That is a very happy and very lucky dog
Like all cats, Pedro always wants something
Pedro really can turn on the cuteness at times
