AN APPEAL has gone out a bout a six-year-old Persian cat who has gone missing from the Henson Park area of Chard.

Tux, a neutered tom cat, disappeared recently and owner Nicola Leyman would dearly love to have him back.

Nicola said: "He is a tiny smokey grey and white cat with ongoing health problems and he needs regular veterinary treatment.

"Tux is normally a house cat who never strays out of the garden.

"He is a very distinctive cat and has a flat face, long curly eyelashes and curly whiskers.

"Tux is very shy when outside but a very loving and friendly cat when at home. He is a much loved pet who is sorely missed."

A reward will be offered to anyone who returns him.
