Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry has issued a desperate appeal to help find his missing cat after it vanished last weekend.
The 57-year-old added Twitter had been 'torture' over the past few days because he had seen 'lovely cats' everywhere but had no idea where his own pet Kevin was.
It is understood Kevin has inspired some of Perry's artwork in recent years, with the artist particularly well-known for his ceramic vases.
His psychotherapist wife Philippa Perry has also pleaded for information on his whereabouts on Twitter and revealed Kevin frequently disappears.
Speaking to the Evening Standard, Mrs Perry said the couple were 'very sad', but added Kevin had been missing for even longer before from their central London home, including one time when he became shut in a neighbour's house for five days while they were on holiday.
She urged locals to look in cellars, gardens and car boots to see if the cat had become trapped.
The two-year-old black and white animal has distinct markings including a white spot on his left back knee.
Anyone with information should contact Mrs Perry on Twitter via @Philippa_Perry.
