Today we all went round to see how Mr Griffiths was getting on now that he is home. She worries that he will not be able to cope.
"How are you," She said.
"Fine, and all the better for seeing him," he answered. " I missed him. He is the pride of my heart."

The cat that knew just when to come home.
