Conor Maynard has been left scratched and bloodied rescuing his cat.

The 'Royalty' singer staged a two-day hunt to find his beloved pussy Aslan and he eventually found the feline in a thorn bush but to get his pet back he had to tackle the prickly plant with nasty consequences for him.

Posting a photo of him bare-chested and showing off his wounds, he posted on Twitter: ''After 2 days of being missing, I found Aslan in a thorn bush, I got him after quite a battle...he doesn't give a f**k (sic)''

The white and ginger cat took no notice of his owner's scars as the singer posted another snap of Aslan enjoying a lovely stretch on his kitchen floor.

Conor is a keen Twitter user and although most of his interactions ate positive ones he finds it easy to ignore any mean comments he receives because he's used to be mercilessly tormented by his friends.

He recently revealed: ''People ask me when you get hate on Twitter how do you not get upset? And I say, 'Because my friends are worse.'

''Like if there's a bad picture of me on the internet, I've got a group chat with all my friends and one of them will just send it in.''
