ANIMAL lover Penelope Piper is appealing for the safe return of Cyrus the cat.
Penelope, 52, who fosters moggies at her home in Locks Heath, took the creature in before Christmas.
Cyrus then went to a new home in Port Solent but went missing after he escaped on Boxing Day. He has not been seen since.
Cyrus is a snowshoe breed and has a black face, chocolate coloured fur, a white chest and white paws.
Penelope said: ‘His owners are worried as am I. He’s a nervous cat that doesn’t like loud noises. What I am worried about is that he is being fed elsewhere because he is so beautiful and lovely.’ If you’ve seen Cyrus call Cats Protection on 0845 371 2743.
