What is a Savannah cat?
A Savannah Cat is the crossing of an African Serval to a domestic cat. This cross made for a very large cat that looked wild but acted domestic. The first cross of a Serval to a domestic cat was an accidental breeding by Judy Frank in 1986. At first the word spread slowly then in the mid 90's Joyce Sroufe heard of this cross and started her own breeding program. The rest as we say is "history". The Savannah breed was born.
Since their inception the Savannah Cat has grown exponentionally. In 1997 a breed standard was created by Joyce Sroufe and submitted to TICA (the international cat association) and was accepted.
Savannahs are known for their long slender bodies, big ears, long legs and their spots. The Savannah cat is one of the newest and most exciting breeds of cats currently being developed by a select few breeders around the world. There are still relatively few Savannahs in existence, and the demand for them is quite high.
What are Savannah Cat Personalities like?
Savannah Cats have very loving and outgoing personalities and are commonly compared to dogs in their loyalty. While being very cat like for obvious reasons, savannahs also like to play in water, play fetch, walk on a leash and will follow you around the house like a dog. They are also very active cats with an incredible jumping ability. It is not uncommon to find them in places a cat cannot normally get to.
How big do Savannahs get?
All Foundation Savannahs have the letter "F" and a number associated with it to indicate how many generations it is from its Serval ancestor.
