The owners of a lost Helensburgh cat are appealing for the public's help in tracking down their missing furry friend.

Zorro, a two-year-old outdoor male cat, has been missing from his home near Rhu Road Higher since Thursday, July 16.

His owners, who are offering a reward if Zorro is found, say that he never normally wanders further than the neighbours' gardens, and that "his disappearance is so out of character".

Zorro is black and white with a distinctive black mark inn the fur on his face.

A post published on the 'Cats Protection Glasgow Branch - Lost and Found' Facebook page said: "He is not microchipped or wearing a collar and we ask that if you live near Rhu Road would you please check huts, garages and any outbuildings that are around your property just to make sure he has not managed to slip in and taken up residence without you knowing."

Any sightings of Zorro can be reported to his owners by calling 07413 026618.
