I sought him here, I sought him there and inevitably when it came to dinner time, he was sitting behind  me!  Mr Pinkie Lewis, our ginger cat, is as silent as a Ninja and more elusive than the Scarlet Pimpernel!  He has many hiding places around the house, which we have to check before leaving home in case we have shut him out in the garden by mistake. 

I bought him his own Ginger Ninja Club House in the form a small dog kennel, which we positioned behind the camellia bushes at the bottom of the garden. So now he has somewhere to hunker down outside.  Mind you, it took Mr Lewis three months before he decided he liked his furry igloo and that was only because I moved it into the cupboard  under the stairs.  Which proves that when it comes to property, even cats subscribe to location, location, location!
