Seeking Owner of Exotic Cat

Wednesday, April 10, 2019

On April 10, 2019 at approximately 8:15 a.m., Animal Control responded to a call for service involving the sighting of an exotic cat near the 2300 Block of Shore Drive. Animal Control searched the area and found tracks from the cat, however, they were not able to locate the cat itself. A photo of the cat is attached. The cat is believed to weigh about 25 pounds and has long legs, making it about 25 inches tall at the shoulders.

Because the cat did have a collar on with two boxes (possibly electric fencing or tracking), Animal Control believes the cat has an owner and is asking the owner to contact the office at 385-6581. If it is an owned cat, it may be social with humans, however Animal Control does not suggest anyone approach or interact with the animal. Instead, please call Animal Control dispatcher at 385-5000 and report the location information for an officer to respond. This type of cat is known to eat small rodents such as mice and squirrels as well as small birds.
