The wild animal, which had no tracking collar, was spotted around 9:30 p.m. Thursday passing through the yard of a home on Multiview Drive.
Ingrid Escajeda and her neighbors were excited about the sighting.
"The one thing that was really pretty incredible was just watching how calm the cat was," she said. "He looked like he was my pet."
"I'm hoping that means he or she is comfortable here and will come back."
