A half-savvy Savannah cat, who fled her owner's house four days ago, was captured again.
The 1.2-meter-long male animal disappeared Monday night in a house in the Sea Mills area of Bristol.
It was caught in the backyard of a house on Saturday morning, after being heard in a nearby forest, and lured into a cage with a piece of chicken.
The owner of the cat, Laura Page, said she was pleased to get her back.
Hazel Richards, who runs a website that usually helps find missing dogs, said she used game cameras to "get an idea of where the animal had gone".
"I used a thermal riflescope and went down a path in a wooded area," she said.
"I heard an unusual noise in the dense blackberries – and because it was raining so heavily – the mud was smooth and I could see a footprint that was obviously a big cat."
She said that the animal had been put in a cage by Mrs. Page, who had the piece of meat in her hand.
"Apart from a few small spots on his head and the loss of his collar, he is otherwise fine," she said.
"She was absolutely thrilled, she was overwhelmed to get her cat back, she had been so worried."
The Savannah breed is a cross between a domestic cat and an African serval.
