ABOUT THE SAVANNAH CAT

The Savannah is a hybrid cross between an African Serval and a domestic cat. The first known breeding was in the early 1980s but it took around 30 years before it was accepted by TICA as a new breed. The initial cross is called an F1 Savannah, and has a Serval parent. To keep both Servals and F1 Savannahs in the UK you need a Dangerous Wild Animal licence.  They are a cat that bonds completely with their family, and they need to be a lifetime commitment, especially the Early Generations, as it would break their heart to be rehomed later in life.

Much like its wild ancestor, the Savannah is a tall, lean cat, with long legs and a long neck. It has large upright ears. and deep set hooded eyes,  giving it a wild appearance. Its coat shows the typical spotted pattern of black or brown spots on a golden to tawny, or sometimes silver, background. The Savannah is a smaller version of the African Serval, but the early generations (F1-F3) are usually considerably larger than a domestic cat.
They are intelligent, agile, and easily trained, and make very affectionate, active, playful members of the family.
