Update 10pm on Friday 7 October: good news, Max has returned home.
A large black and white cat answering to the name or Max of Maxi went missing from the Watt Lane on Saturday 1 October around 6pm. Have you seen him?
He is a solid cat with a white tummy, white stripes on his back legs, white front and back paws, a torn ear, a white bib and central white facial markings.
The owners are asking whether local residents could check garages, basements, greenhouses and sheds in case she is trapped inside. He may have been a constant visitor to your garden.
