9th Feb 1946: the cat came back
9 Sat. Very cold, bitter NW wind; clear, much bright sunshine. Finished putting lining paper on walls of living room. Cycled to Wimbledon in the bitter wind to buy sprats; also did some shopping locally. The Calvers who lived at No. 70 at the time the flying bomb fell and almost destroyed their house have recently returned, their house being completely rebuilt. I had the great pleasure of seeing ‘Tin-tin’, their large black cat who came back with them and came to me when I called him and showed unmistakeable signs of pleasure: he seemed to remember me and was not at all afraid. Cats are wonderful: I hope to enjoy his company and to improve his acquaintance.
