SAN DIEGO -- The owner of a rare cat missing since last week is hoping to get the animal back to safety.
Bridgette Cowell's Savannah cat, Katie, is as clever as she is expensive. Cowell told 10News her rare cat is worth $15,000, and she escaped from the Mt. Helix home of a breeder.
"It does sound insane, but once you've met one maybe you would understand why it is such a special pet," said Cowell
Katie is a cross between a domestic cat and a wild African cat called a serval. She is 16 inches from the shoulders and has spots like a leopard.
Cowell said Katie is one of only a couple thousand Savannah cats in the entire world. http://www.10news.com/news/22470041/detail.html
