At the start of this year I was almost at the point of posting one of the old photos of Banjo as an obituary as he’d been missing for months. And then out of the blue he just showed up again.

We figure he’d strayed too far from home and then got lost and it simply took him months to figure out the way back. Either that, or he’d been doing a bit of a Six Dinner Sid thing, but perhaps not as he has not dared stray too far since. Banjo started off as a house cat, but his part Bengal nature means he is better off living outside on the farm; he is a nuisance in the house.
