Peasey is a very independent cat who loves being outdoors,
particularly at night, and is happy to be out in the pouring rain, regularly coming home not bothered that he's sopping wet. He usually comes in when we get up in the morning and then spends a lot of the day flaked out on our bed, although when the weather's nice he also likes to curl up under a bush in the garden, and has also been spotted on the roof of a nearby bungalow.
He loves to go out for walks with us and his sister in the parkland near Savick Brook, which is close to where we live, and has a couple of kitty friends on our estate that he also likes to hang out with, including the cat next door. We don't have a cat flap - primarily to stop his sister bringing her kills into the house - but Peasey is capable of letting himself out of the front door if it isn't locked and knocks on it to let us know when he wants to come back in (normally to munch a few biscuits and drink from the kitchen tap, before going back out again). We don't know whether he actually hunts himself or just scavenges, but he has been known to come home with a very full belly on occasion. The only changes we have noticed recently are that he has been spending more time out at night since the weather has improved, but he has never been gone for more than 24hrs before.
His usual roaming area covers the Summertrees and Millerfield estates of Preston, and the fields and wooded areas around the canal and Savick Brook on both sides of Lea Road, but could potentially extend much further afield. He is extremely nosey (like a lot of cats).,
Please help us find Peasey. He may like to think that he's a
big, bad tom cat when he's out patrolling the area at night, but he's just my Bagpuss when he's at home, with a sister and kitty friends waiting for him to come back.
