Large African cat lost in Langley
A large African cat that resembles a slightly smaller version of a cheetah is lost in Aldergrove, and his owners are desperate to get him home.
Tigger, a one-year-old African serval cat who lives indoors and is declawed, bolted out the door in the middle of Thursday evening’s thunder and hail storm. Despite a huge media blitz on the lost cat, he still hadn’t been found as of Monday, said Tigger’s owner Kelly Allen.
Allen wants people to know that he is not dangerous and has been hand-raised from a six-week-old cub.
“But he will be scared. He has been well socialized but is still leery of people,” said Allen.
He weighs 35 pounds and is the size of a border collie, said Allen.
They live on five acres at 256 Street and 40 Avenue. She’s contacted everyone she knows including the Greater Vancouver Zoo (nearby) and the RCMP.
Tigger comes to Tigger-Boo as well and is very social, but doesn’t like to be touched.
If someone does see Tigger, she asks that they call her right away to give the cat’s location. Kelly can be reached at 604-831-1519. Tigger is wearing a sapphire crystal collar with his name on it.
“He is like one of our children,” Kelly said. Given how cold it is outside and that he is declawed, it will be tough out there for Tigger, she said.
Tigger has his own Facebook page, just reference “Tigger the Serval.”
