TWO young girls from Malvern are delighted after their missing cat returned home safe and well.

Izzy, 10, and six-year-old Chloe Wilcox appealed for help to find David the cat last week, after he went missing on Wednesday, July 31.

Fortunately, David returned home earlier this week, 'looking a bit thinner', leading the family to suspect that he'd been accidentally trapped inside a shed or garage.

The three-year-old black and white cat, who lives with the family in Newland, Malvern, was described as ‘very friendly’ and ‘dribbles when you stroke him, sleeps on the bed and will eat plastic’.
