Well this week has been a bit of an emotional roller coaster. Harvey went out on Sunday evening for his nightly roam around the neighbourhood. And never came back. For the past few days we have been knocking on doors, putting up posters and walking around the surrounding streets to find him. One sighting by someone in the neighbourhood led me to make a new feline friend:

A beautiful orange cat but not Harvey.

It was getting to the point that we had to start considering that Harvey might not come back. But then.... 
Today the little girl downstairs asked us why our cat was now living in the tree outside. Children are wonderfully observant unlike adults! 

High, high up in the fir tree in the front communal garden was Harvey! He doesn't miaow or at least very rarely and so hadn't made a sound as we walk underneath the tree everyday never thinking to look up. Can you spot him in the photo below?

How about in the next one?

We are so relieved! Unfortunately though he has to stay in the tree one more night as the RSPCA didn't have a free officer tonight and the fire brigade don't rescue cats without the RSPCA present. He is so high up that normal ladders don't reach anywhere near him. Its currently raining and I wish Harvey could be in the warm with us. Hopefully tomorrow will see him home and dry!
