When a stray cat, Neddy, started appearing in the Coffee Shop one day, the staff quickly took him under their wing. When Eileen Clarke took over the running of the shop for a few weeks, she decided to use some leftovers to make a salmon mousse, giving those that didn’t sell to Neddy as a treat. However, the following day, Mrs Mangel, who’d eaten the mousse, was rushed to hospital and Neddy was found dead outside the back door of the shop. Des quickly buried the cat in the grounds of Lassiter’s and attempted to forget the incident, but when it was revealed that Mrs Mangel actually had appendicitis, he was worried that they’d been a little presumptuous in thinking that Eileen had poisoned everyone. They decided to dig the cat up and take him to the vet, where it was revealed that Neddy had actually died of natural causes.
