Frances Bean Cobain is desperate to see a black cat again.

The 19-year-old daughter of late rocker Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love has been pleading for help to find her missing cat, Zero, by putting up fliers and broadcasting her search on Twitter. The cat first went missing on June 3 in the Hollywood area, and Cobain is offering a $5,000 reward.

“Not everyone in this life experiences genuine love from an animal, but I have from this cat,” she wrote earlier this week.

Cobain has had the cat since it was 4 weeks old but suspects that with the addition of a new puppy in the house, Zero may have gotten skittish and run away. She lashed out against critics who suggested she was doing this for media attention.

“I just want her home,” she Tweeted. “I don’t want people to make news out of it I dnt want attention I just want my cat. That cat is my [family] & best friend.”
