What's the best way to repair alabaster?

I have a small alabaster cat statue which is currently missing one ear after a fall. I have the missing piece, and I want to glue it back on. Is there anything I need to be wary of in terms of the kind of glue or the method I use? Am I likely to discolour or damage the alabaster if I use the wrong stuff?
The statue originally came from a street vendor, but I'm pretty sure it's genuine alabaster since the thinner portions are translucent when I hold it to the light.
