Cat Breed Description

The Savannah cat is a hybrid breed derived from breeding together domestic cats and African Serval cats. Since this breeding is difficult to achieve, Savannahs remain a very rare breed. Savannah cats are lean and graceful, with a distinct impression of wildness. Its most striking features are a boldly-spotted golden, silver, or black smoke coat, a three-quarter-length tail, and its tall, muscular build. Savannahs should resemble a serval cat in aspect and bearing.

The Savannah personality is friendly, affectionate, and people-oriented.

WARNING: As a hybrid breed, Savannah cats are illegal to own in some states or municipalities in the United States. This is mostly due to badly-worded laws banning wild animal-domestic animal hybrids, which should not apply in these cases. Please check with this website to determine if your state is affected:
