ABOUT

OUR SAVANNAHS

Both our breeding cats are on the Active TICA Register. We have nicknames for both which are Marmalade and Matu, and they are our absolute pampered fur babies. They go for regular walks, fall asleep with us, and get thoroughly spoilt.

The traits both have are magnificent and the kittens simply stunning. If you are looking for a beautiful F3 kitten with loads of personality from a  responsible ethical breeder we would love to hear from you.

The Breed

The Savannah breed brings wildness, beauty and the exotic nature of Africa into your life along with the most amazing dog like temperament.

Savannah's are a Hybrid offspring of the African Serval.

When a Serval mates with any ordinary domestic cat, they can produce hybrid Savannah kittens.  That mating produces an F1 Savannah in the cat world.

 

Savannah's are considered to be one of the largest breeds of domesticated cats. The savannah's tall and slim build gives the appearance of greater size than their actual weight.  

 

Savannah's size can vary, based on their breeding pedigree, however early generation Savannah Cats may weigh 20 to 30 lbs, with the higher weight usually attributed to the F2 or F3 males. Later generation Savannah Cats are usually between 12 to 20 lbs. 


F1 Savannah's are very similar to Servals.  The features are very similar, large Serval ears, although slightly smaller in size with a beautifully spotted coat. 
In the UK to own an F1 Savannah a Dangerous Wild Animal Licence is required.  F2 Savannah's and later kittens (Grand father is a Serval and mother is an F1 Savannah Female) are classed as general domestic cats and have some amazing, loving dog like temperaments.


Savannahs Cats are considered to be one of the larger breeds of domesticated cats. The savannah's tall and slim build gives the appearance of greater size than their actual weight.

The International Cat Association (TICA) breed standard calls for brown spotted tabby (cool to warm brown, tan or gold with black or dark brown spots, silver spotted tabby (silver coat with black or dark grey spots), black (black with black spots), and black smoke (black tipped silver with black spots) only. In addition, the Savannah can come in nonstandard variations such as the classic or marble patterns, snow coloration (point), and blue or other diluted colours derived from domestic sources of cat coat genetics.

The overall look of an individual Savannah Cat greatly depends on its generation, with higher-percentage Savannah cats often having a more "wild" look.  

The domestic out-crosses for the Savannah breed that are permissible in TICA are the Egyptian Mau, the Ocicat, the Oriental Shorthair, and the Domestic Shorthair. 

In addition, some Savannah breeders have in the past used "non-permissible" breeds or mixes such as Bengal (for size and vivid spotting) and Maine Coon cats (for size) for the domestic parentage.  A Savannah's wild look is often due to the presence of many distinguishing Serval characteristics.   

Most prominent of these include the various colour markings and tall, erect ears. The bodies of Savannahs are long and leggy - when a Savannah is standing, their hind-end is often higher than their shoulders.

The head is taller than it is wide, and they have a long slender neck. The backs of the ears have ocelli, a central light band bordered by black, dark grey or brown, giving an eye-like effect. 

The short tail has black rings, with a solid black tip. The eyes are blue as a kitten (as in other cats), and may be green, brown, gold or a blended shade as an adult. 

The eyes have a "boomerang" shape, with a slightly hooded brow to protect them from harsh sunlight. Black or dark "tear-streak" or "cheetah tear" markings run from the corner of the eyes down the sides of the nose to the whiskers, much like that of a cheetah.

**We have no kittens available - We are hoping for a litter of F3's    around August 2021**
