According to Butcher, Dougal disappeared late last month and she has been desperately searching for him ever since.
"How many cats can there be with such distinctive markings and no tail?" she said. "It's just my domestic Bengal."
Calling the confusion "a bit bonkers," Butcher said she hopes the added publicity will help her find the not-so-ferocious feline.
"The last sighting we're aware of is that he was round the back of KFC," she told the Chronicle. "He loves chicken."
