Savannah Cat

Savannah CatThe Savannah 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.
The Savannah is 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. It should resemble a serval cat in aspect and bearing.

They are accepted at present only in black, brown spotted tabby, silver spotted tabby, and black smoke. Due to the newness of these breeds, pet kittens may be available in other colors, though these colors are not currently accepted.


Since this is a relatively new breed and they are so challenging to breed, Savannahs are still very rare and quite expensive.

Acceptance: This breed is accepted for experimental status in TICA.
