THE owner of a missing cat is appealing for help to find him.

Banana, a male ginger cat, has not been seen by his owner, Laura Hilton, since going missing from his home in Killams Park, Taunton, on the evening of Saturday, July 27.

He is eight-years-old and has been neutered and microchipped. Laura says his disappearance is out of character.

She said: "Banana is very timid and scared, and does not like unfamiliar people.

"He has never ventured far from home before, never usually leaving the garden."
