What is a savannah cat?
The Savannah cat is the most popular cat of this century. It is a domestic cat registered by an international cat registry. Also unusual, is the fact that the Savannah cat has a non-domestic cat parent that comes from Africa. The name of that kind of cat is called a Serval.
Servals are a tall, golden cat with black spots and huge ears. The Savannah cat is supposed to look much like the Serval. In addition, the Savannahs inherit many of the same traits from the serval parent. The golden coat and huge ears are the first things that everyone notices. Then the black spotting and long, long legs.
Rarer in Africa are black servals and white servals. There are black and silver Savannah cats chosen to stand for the same colors as the servals.
Savannah Cats are Beautiful
They are very beautiful. When a cat is bred to a serval the kittens are always called F1 Savannahs. When the F1s are grown some are bred and the kittens are called F2 Savannah cats. Each time that happens, the kittens add another number, such as, F3 and F4.
Smart and Friendly
The Savannah cat personality is the main reason pet owners want them. They are extraordinarily smart and very interactive. Savannahs love to play in the water, go for walks or runs on a leash and are very good at figuring out how to carry out some difficult tasks like opening doors or communicating when they want something.
Their owners seem to congregate together in groups to talk about their cats and compare stories as though they are human children. To top it all off, nothing beats a big, beautiful, long-legged, big-eared cat standing in the living room when guests walk in and say, “wow, what is that?”

Savannah cat legal ownership is very important to reputable breeders. One of the worst things that can happen to a Savannah cat is to settle in with its family and begin to give that unconditional love..and also receive it from his humans only to be turned in and your cat is confiscated.
