A Burton woman is urging people to keep their eyes peeled as she desperately searches for her family cat, who has been missing for more than a week.
Sidrah Khan, 30, adopted Simba when he was just six weeks old in April 2016 and he has been up to mischief ever since, spending his days lounging around and eating. She has been looking for him around her home between Derby Road and Eton Road and handing out posters to neighbours in the hope that someone might have spotted him, but this has been to no avail.
Simba went missing on June 28 and it is not like him to be gone so long.
She said: "I don't know if he's wandered off in search of more food, even though he's got enough food to last a lifetime here at home.
"We've been looking all around looking for him, but we've not found him. A neighbour said they'd seen him two days after he went missing, but we've heard nothing since."
After contacting numerous vets for information, she is starting to lose hope, and just wants her companion to be found. Simba is microchipped, so if anyone comes across him he can be taken to a vet who will get in touch with his owner.
The moggy has wide green eyes, long black fur with white feet and chest and a thick bushy tail.
Sidrah, who works as a research developer, said: "We're really missing him. You don't really understand unless you have a pet how much you miss them when they're not there.
"He's a friendly cat. He loves to play and mess about. He can be quite unpredictable with strangers; sometimes he goes up to people and other times he can be a bit shy.
If anyone spots Simba, they are encouraged to contact Sidrah on 07530099786 or get in touch with their local vet.
