2 pouches and half a dish of dried food later, examination revealed her wounds to be healed and her to be in general good health. She was just a bit wide eyed, jumpy and very very very hungry.
We will never know whether she intended to come home or not, or whether she just got disorientated and decided to stay where she knew she was surviving. there are a million other possibilities
She has slept on the landing all night and is calmer this morning. She asked for food at 2am and again this morning (some things never change).
Nicole (our vet), your work wasn't in vain and to our neighbours, thank you for your informative phone calls that lead to this recovery.
End of this installment (I hope).
In other news, Bamgee is having building work done on her house, and Dr Noisette came round and we had a lovely afternoon.
