HIGHLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A northern Lower Peninsula woman says two exotic cats have been stolen from her farm.

Judy Bazuin tells WPBN-WTOM that a male African serval and a female serval worth more than $5,000 each were taken in Osceola County’s Highland Township, about 45 miles south of Traverse City. Bazuin says she’s bred the cats in the past and considers them to be part of the family.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Christopher Lockhart tells the Cadillac News that the cats were taken from their separate, unlocked cages sometime between Sunday afternoon and early Monday. The male weighs about 45 pounds and the female weighs about 25 pounds.

Both cats have been declawed.

Bazuin is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to their return. Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff’s department.
