A Romford couple are becoming increasingly worried about their eight-month-old cat, who has been missing for almost a month.   

Fiona Perkins, 34, and Ben Perkins, 38, who live near Raphael Park, reported their cat Oki missing on October 30.  

The pair adopted Oki along with his mother Jeju four months ago.

Oki is a male ginger domestic short-haired feline who his owners describe as "vocal"  and a little “skittish” around people he doesn't know.

He started to go outside in late September and they believe his disappearance could be linked to being spooked by Halloween and fireworks. 

Oki is neutered and chipped and has a distinctive black spot on his right nostril. 

Fiona said: “We’re really worried and stressed, especially now the weather is getting colder. We just want him to come home as soon as possible.
