BTB Reader Ross Houghton found this unusual looking cat near his house around SW 164th and 11th SW in Gregory Heights:

“This amazing beast has been seen the last few weeks around our house,” Ross said. “No collar and looking thin. It meows like a kitten and is very curious. Someone thought it may be a domestic hybrid of an ocelot. If so they are rare and expensive. Have not seen any missing posters in the neighborhood.”

If you recognize this cool-looking kitty, please contact Ross at rosshoughton@gmail.com.

    It is beautiful, It appears to be the breed bangle, very costly….I am sure the owner must be very upset he/she is missing.

    A cat like this used to come to my apartment when I lived at 35th ave SW AND SW Webster. I took his to the vet and he had a microchip with owner info…

    Can you get him and then to a vet? He is a rare and expensive breed. Someone is missing him and he likely has a microchip. If he is thin, he needs food and water. Please help this guy out and get him safe!

    Bengals are a very slender breed of cat, a lot like modern Orientals. If they start putting on much weight (average cat -like), their health starts to spiral downhill very quickly. A healthy Bengal does look very slim- but the photos of this one look good. They are very happy to accept food from willing humans….

    In a time when many people are busy and don’t always get involved, it warms my heart to see so many people concerned and willing to help! Bravo all!

    It’s always tough to tell a prowling house cat from a lost cat that actually needs help. Please collar, tag, and microchip your cats.

    Definitely a Bengal kitty. These things retail for $2200 so its owner might want it back.

    Its a Bengal. Please ask for proof of ownership if you are able to capture it. They are expensive and often stolen. Yes everyone please microchip, collar and spay/neuter!!
