I had been looking into large domestic cat breeds after the loss of my last cat. I loved the wild look and large size as most of us do.
The price was hefty but if you think about it this is a pet you may have for 20 years or better and the fact that they are rare and difficult to breed from serval to Savannah. I was only able to get my savannahs because I had recently sold my fish'n'ski boat.
After having my savannahs for a few months now I think it was a good decision.
I first got Pe-Le a female F4 Savannah and a month later I realized she needed a buddy to help burn off that energy and I was wanting one with more serval blood. So I then got Ma-Zu a F2 Savannah female who I have felt lucky to get seeing as how a known breeder was also interested in her for her great serval traits.
They are only a couple weeks apart here at around 6- 7 months of age. At around seven months now they weigh 6 and 10 pounds, that is for the F4 then F2. I name them after a goddess of Hawaii and one of China.
They really have unique personalities. They do love to play in the shower, water or not. The F4 will fetch and return the ball or whatever to your area. They are very active, communicative, and seem loyal. I have found them waiting for me when I get home.
They let you know when they want something and when they don't like something. There great pets, I'm glad I have them.
Its the idea of having a rare and exotic pet that most have never heard or seen of that gets me. Thanks.
