Lloydminster RCMP are on the lookout for an exotic cat that looks like a baby leopard that was stolen during the weekend.

According to the RCMP, someone entered a garage at a home in Lashburn, Sask., between 6 p.m. Saturday and 2 a.m. CT Sunday and stole Lucius, a purebred Asian leopard cat.

This purebred Asian leopard cat, named Lucius, was stolen from a home in Lashburn, Sask., during the weekend.
(RCMP) The cat, tan with black spots and a white belly, is originally from the Czech Republic and had been raised in a zoo before being purchased by its owners in Saskatchewan.

Police said the cat is 8 1/2 months old, weighs about 12 pounds (about 5.4 kilograms) and has had all its shots.

Police also said the cat “walks very low to the ground” and will become defensive only if cornered.

They’re asking anybody with information to give them a call. They’re also asking veterinarians, pet shops, kennels, groomers and zoos to keep an eye out for Lucius.

Lashburn is about 35 kilometres southeast of Lloydminster. 04/23/cat.html
