History

The Savannah cat is one of the newest breeds of cat and is causing quite a storm. The first Savannah (that is documented) was born on April 7th 1986. A female domestic cat mated with an African Serval and a female, hybrid kitten was born.

The kitten was named Savannah which is where the breed name comes from and she showed traits from both her Serval father and domestic mother. Two breeders called Patrick Kelly and Joyce Sroufe teamed up to develop the Savannah as a legitimate breed and collaborated to write up a TICA breed standard. TICA accepted the Savannah for registration in 2001. The Savannah was accepted for Championship status by TICA in 2012.

Behaviour

The Savannah is an incredible cat with a temperament that is quite unique to the breed. They are very athletic, often described as dog like and fiercely intelligent. They will bond strongly with their owners and crave affection and companionship.

Stunning cat - Surrey ,

I purchased a savannah in August this year , first pedigree cat I have ever owned , this is a stunning breed very intelligent , but needs lots of stimulation. I had to purchase a cat enclosure , I chose omlet as it looks nice in the garden , I do not recommend to let your savannah out unless you want it stolen or run over or killed . You cannot keep them secure in your garden , the only wY is an enclosure with lots of activity to put inside it . Honestly such a lovely breed but time consuming
