Police were working to get the cat, named Bam Bam, back to its owner.
Royal Oak police were called around 6:30 a.m. on Oct. 13, to a home in the 700 block of East La Salle Avenue because “several large African caracal cats” had escaped their enclosure, they said.
This is at least the third time the cats have escaped, according to police. Two cats were found in an “unsecured enclosure,” and a third was discovered in the area and returned to the home, according to authorities.
One of the cats was still on the loose until it was spotted lying near a garage.
