he was sat by the front door this morning. we are over the moon to have him back! he looks bit dirty and thinner, but apart from that he's fine. he was quite hungry and has been sleeping lots. just wonder where on earth he's been all this time!!!
So distressing for you and dd. Really pleased he came back. Ours went at the time of year when they're rearing pheasants so we think he may have been sat watching the pens and only came back when the pheasants were released. We're lucky the gamekeeper didn't shoot him! Is that sort of thing a possibility (or are you in a city, where there really aren't many pheasants lol!)
