Q. What is a Savannah Cat?

A. A Savannah cat is a cross between an African Serval and a Domestic cat.

Below is an Example of generations.

  • · First Generation (F1) 50% 1/2 Serval & 1/2 Domestic
  • · Second Generation (F2) 25% Serval is a Grandparent
  • · Third Generation (F3) 12.5% Serval is a Great Grandparent

Q. What is the temperament of the Savannah Cat?

A. Savannah's are devoted to their family. They are talkative, affectionate and playful. All my cats love to play in water. My F1 girls will play fetch and find their toy on command. Early socialization is very important in accepting new people. Their basic personalities will differ as much as other pets and humans.

Q. How Intelligent are Savannah Cats?

A. Very Smart! much like a Dog. Savannah's are very trainable if done properly. My cats will walk on a leash, respond to verbal commands and they are extremely curious. One of my cats will turn on the bathtub water and scold me verbally if I tell him "NO" NOT NOW. Dafiana watched me turn the door knob to leave the room. At four months she mimicked me by turning the doorknob with her paws to open the door. Another boy locked me out of the house trying to open the front door to follow me.

Q. What should I feed my Savannah Cat?

A. A high protein kitten food, both dry and moist for at least the first year. I recommend Purina kitten or Iams. I supplement with free range natural chicken as treats through their life. I believe the early generations need extra protein and taurine for good health.

Q. Will my Savannah get along with other cats and dogs?

A. Yes, but introduce your kitten to other pets slowly and under watchful supervision. Your kitten will need time to adjust to the new environment. First experiences in the adjustment process are very important for a smooth transition. Savannah's don't forget a pleasant or unpleasant experience. The same applies for the introduction to humans.

Below is a general program of Introduction:

Give your kitten a room or area of the house initially. Then a little more area each day until your kitten has explored the entire house. I suggest the first room as your bedroom. This will help create the so important bond between you and your new baby. Your kitten will depend on you for security in learning about the new home. This will also maintain the confident attitude developed in my home, making transition smooth. My cats all start out in my bedroom. They explore the rest of the house slowly but spend the night with me for the first couple of months.

Q. Should I De-claw my Savannah?

A. This is a personal choice for the new owner to make. There are many strong opinions against de-clawing. Most breeders object to de-clawing their cats, I do not. But, proper care after de-clawing is important. Finally whether you choose to

de-claw or not, your Savannah must not be permitted to roam outside EVER (see my contract).

Q. Why are Savannah's expensive?

A. Early generation Savannah are very hard to breed and deliver live kittens. A lot of time, patience, money and heartache are all factures that go into the pricing of these rare exotic cats. They are well worth the effort and price.

SPECIAL NOTE: Savannah Cats are very active, curious and often extremely independent thinking. It is important that you spend plenty of time and have patience with your new kitten. Early generations need as much time as a puppy to have a well adjusted pet. Never hit or allow rough treatment. My kittens are socialized from birth. You, the new owner need to ensure that proper development continues and maintained
