Man Offers $5,000 Reward For Safe Return Of Missing Cat
A Chicago family is sparing no expense after they lost their rare cat while vacationing in San Diego, Calif.
The Fosco family’s male cat, Ivy, went missing July 17, according to ABC News Station KGTV. On top of the $5,000 reward for the safe return of the cat, the family hired a bloodhound team from Los Angeles Wednesday, hoping the dog can sniff out Ivy.
Ivy is a rare Savannah cat, which is no regular housecat. A Savannah is derived from breeding an African serval wild cat with a domestic cat. A first-generation cat can cost more than $20,000. Ivy is a second generation, but still worth a lot of money.
“It’s really got nothing to do with the money in my eyes,” said Paul Fosco, whose son Mike owns the cat. “He’s wandered away before, but Mike’s always been able to find him.”
