A VET in Kew is trying to track down the owners of this cat, who was found after bonfire night.
The black teenage cat - who has been named Guy - was taken to the Kitten to Cat clinic two weeks ago and staff think the noise of fireworks exploding may have frightened him.
Practice owner Zeta Frasca said he was obviously a well-loved pet. "He is very sweet and enjoys play time and cuddles. Unfortunately, since Guy was not microchipped the chances of finding his family are slim.
"The chances are that if he was from the local area we would have gotten a call by now, so he may have come from further afield, as the stress of fireworks can cause cats to become disorientated and stray further than usual.
"Or perhaps his owners are away and the neighbour who is meant to be feeding him hasn't realised he has gone."
Guy has some distinctive fight wounds on his ear and an indent around his neck, which suggests he may have worn a collar. * The Sandycombe Road practice is offering free microchipping this month to encourage cat owners to protect their cats.
Anyone who knows Guy's real identity can call the practice on 020 8940 0014.
