Savannah Cats, a new breed, a hybrid cross of an African Serval and a domestic cat or a Bengal which which is derived from an Asian Leopard. They are big and beautiful with sleek lines, a truly awesome feline.
The first documented breeding of an African Serval to a domestic cat was accomplished in the mid 1980s by Judy Frank, a Bengal breeder. The result was a F1 (first generation) Savannah Cat. The generations are then bred down with each a generation from the wild ancester. Savannahs are the largest hybrid cat available at this time. In 1996, Patrick Kelly and Joyce Sroufe wrote the original version of the Savannah breed standard, and presented it to the TICA board. However, in that same year, TICA had placed a moratorium on new breeds. It was not until 2000, that the standard, with input from other breeders, was accepted by TICA in a narrow 7-to-6 vote. At the same time, the Savannah International Member & Breeder Assocation (SIMBA) was formed, and reported just over 100 registered Savannahs. Savannahs are considered one of the larger breeds of domesticated cats. Their tall and slim build gives Savannahs the appearance of greater size than their actual weight due to the stronger genetic influence. Male Savannahs tend to be larger than females. Early generation Savannahs may weigh 10 to 35 lbs. Size is also very dependent on generation and sex, with the F1 male cats usually being the largest. Later generation Savannahs are usually between 8-17 lbs. Because of the random factors in Savannah hybrid genetics, there can be significant variation in size, even in one litter. Some breeders report Savannahs in excess of 35 pounds, with at lease one breeder claiming an over 40 pound male. Prices of Savannahs Cats can vary. So, if you are buying a pedigree cat just as a pet and don't plan to show or breed from it, a pet quality cat will be ideal. These are less expensive than show and breeding quality cats. When you get to the middle F-generations the price levels off to about $3500 -$6000 for breeding female.
