animals are funny aren't they!!
when I was young we had a cat that kept having kittens and because we were looking after the cat for a friend we didn't get it fixed as she didn't want to. Anyway the friend eventually told us she didn't want the cat back so we gave it & plus the kittens to a pet shop.
2 days later the pet store called us to tell us she had escaped.
Next day she turned up at home.
Pet store was a good 15 minute drive away.
