FIVE hundred dollars is a lot of money for a full-time university student.

But Rockhampton's Nicola Farley is willing to give it away for the safe return of her treasured cat, Ollie.

The last time Nicola saw Ollie was Thursday night last week when he climbed into bed with her.

But by the next morning he had disappeared.

She is worried the Cornish Rex, a rare breed, has been stolen and is offering a $500 reward for his return.

This is Ollie. His owner is offering a $300 reward for his return.

Nicola was originally going to save the money, which she got back on tax, to help her buy a new car.

"He means that much to me, he's my baby," she said.

"He's never gone missing before.

"He doesn't leave the yard… it's fully fenced."

She has searched her neighbourhood, doorknocked, put up flyers, and contacted Capricorn Animal Aid, the pound and various vets.

She has even created a Facebook page, "Lost Rockhampton Cat $500 reward - Cornish Rex".

"No one has seen anything, which is really weird," she said.

"If he'd been hit by a car surely someone would l have seen something, so I don't think that's the case."

Ollie was given to Nicola as a joint moving out of home and birthday present last year, and he is microchipped and desexed.
