MARINA DEL REY (CBSLA.com) — 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.
