A BELOVED family cat, Jolene, has been missing for seven days - leaving her owner distraught.

Ben Warren, 27, has been desperately searching for Jolene since she went missing from her home in Warndon Villages last week.

Mr Warren said: "My girl, Jolene, is a tortoise shell three year old cat with distinct markings, she has toffee coloured toes on her right paw, light markings on her nose that could be mistaken for a graze and the tip of her tail has flecks of beige/ginger. She’s a very friendly cat and loves people.

"Jolene came to my wife and I at three months old as her previous owner couldn’t look after her. She really does mean the world to us so we spoil her very often.

"She was last seen around 4pm Tuesday September 8 sitting in the garden, there have been no sightings of her in the neighbourhood since. We have shared on social media for sightings of Jolene and asked neighbours to check their sheds and garages.

"We just need her home, she is a huge part of the family and dearly missed.

"I won't give up until I find her."

If you see Jolene, please get in touch with reporter, Jemma Bufton, who can put you in touch with Mr Warren.
