"A Bayview area woman is still looking for the African serval that escaped from her house in early July.Tiffany Cartier said Thursday that she had almost given up hope of finding the spotted wild cat, but a possible sighting Wednesday night rekindled some hope.Ann O'Farrell, who lives near the American Legion Hall on the other side of the highway, said the serval may have visited her house. They heard yowling at 11 p.m. Wednesday, and her daughter Sarah looked out to see a large cat with big ears on their porch. It disappeared into the woods before it could be clearly identified.Other than O'Farrell's report, Cartier hadn't heard any reports about the cat in the last two weeks. She said she has about given it up for lost. "
