MARINA DEL REY ( — A Marina del Rey woman is offering $20,000 to help find her missing exotic cat.

The feline was last seen at the luxury Esprit apartment complex on 13900 Marquesas Way more than a week ago.

Exotic F2 Savannah cats like Bentley are rare with a price tag of up to $8,000, which is why the owner is desperate to get him back.

She said she had hired a pet detective and a team of blood hounds to help find Bentley, who escaped from the balcony of her apartment.

A flyer posted on Facebook says Bentley is a brown tabby with black spots and is declawed.


A viewer told CBS2/KCAL9 the reward for Bentley started at $5,000, climbed to $7,500 then $20,000.

Anyone who spots the cat is asked to call (310) 299-7905.

    Looks like an Ocelot to me, illegal to have I believe. No wonder they are offering a big reward!

    $20,000? If only she would have known to contact me! Getting a cat isn’t like getting a dog. You need a specialist. I wrote the book on tracking down lost cats. Getting a cat like that would have been a piece of cake. Next time, go to
