Socks arrived as a stray aproximately 3 ½ years ago and took up residence in his present human's garden.
Even though he has suspected arthritis in his hind legs the thought of a nice warm bed indoors was not for him and despite all efforts to coax him in, he seemed perfectly happy living in the shelter provided for him.
He isn't the most sociable of cats - affection is shown in 3 stages - growl, smack, and swipe.
This anti-social attitude does not prevent his human from missing him dreadfully, they have built up a healthy respect for each other together with a bond that ensures that the search for him will go on.
Would everyone in the Warbreck Hill Road area please keep a watch on outbuildings for Socks who disappeared at the end of last June.
