A £500 reward is being offered for the safe return of a much-loved cat.

Owner Sarah Doherty has made a desperate plea for the return of her four-legged friend. The tabby was last seen on Monday, February 11.

He went missing from St Margaret's Drive in Rhyl.

Sarah said: "I can't tell you how much he means to me.

"He is an un-neutered male cat. He has never been out.

"He was rescued and has spent most of his life in the house. He gets so nervous so he is probably scared, terrified.

"We've had him since he was three or four weeks old. My mother didn't realise he was in the kitchen and he just got out.

"He will be so scared. He is extremely nervous so he may be hiding somewhere. If someone tries to catch him, they just need to bear in mind to approach him carefully.

"He may be hiding curled up somewhere as he is good curling himself up."

Anyone with information is asked to telephone Sarah on 07833448094 or 01745 339848.
