    A $5,000 reward is being offered for cat that went missing in La Jolla last week.

    The cat, named Ivy, is a 16-pound Savannah – a cross-breed between a domestic and wild cat.

    Ivy escaped when it was traveling with his 22-year-old owner from Illinois. The cat was last seen on July 17 at the intersection of Fay Street and Pearl Street in La Jolla.

    Paul and Linda, who asked that their last name be withheld, said they flew from Chicago to help their son Michael look for the missing animal.

    They said the reason the reward is $5,000 is because the cat traveled “everywhere” with their son and the cat means a lot to the family.

    “It’s not a dollars and cents issue, we’re here so my son could reunite with his best friend,” said Paul.

    Anyone with information about the rare cat can call Linda at 847-274-9701.
