We've lost our lovely cat

Have you seen a grey tabby cat in the Queen street area? Last seen on Friday he is much loved and chipped. Please can you check any garages and outbuildings just in case he has become trapped and we would be so grateful if you could keep an eye out for him. He lives at Grove farmhouse and is much missed by all of us - particularly our 11 and 7 year old. Thank you.
