He was being kept by someone on the opposite end of our suburb. His neighbour dobbed him in after seeing an old flyer at the shops (the one that didn't have the cash reward offered). The anonymous caller said the guy keeping Chilli is a bit of a knob so DH went to "steal" him back without risking "asking" for Chilli to be returned.
Oh and thanks for the link Smarsme. I think i will get cousin in law one when she hits 12 weeks as a early present (after 2 years of trying i think they deserve an early present! I bet her husband is relieved, he can now get some sleep! )
