    Overview

    The Savannah Cat is a domestic pedigree feline and is recognised by The International Cat Association (TICA). TICA is the leading authority on feline breeds.

    Character

    Breeders and owners of this cat claim that it has a sweet, outgoing personality and is said to be more dog-like in their character. The temperament of a Savannah is predictable. However, no matter how far these cats are from the original wild cat cross, they are very active and curious and very high maintenance. They definitely need constant supervision, especially around other pets and animals.

    Appearance

    The overall impression of the Savannah cat is a tall, lean, and graceful cat with striking dark spots and other markings on a luxurious tawny, orange, gold, silver, black or black smoke background.

    The cat was created as a replica of the African Serval, a small spotted wild cat. The African Serval is often referred to as “small leopard”. In fact, it is unrelated to leopards at all. This cat is about twice the size of a domestic cat.
