F2 Savannah Kittens

F2 Savannah kittens are gorgeous and there are nearly always four or more playing, sleeping and eating in the home of Martin and Kathrin Stucki of A1 Savannahs, as part of the socialization process.

Just yesterday one on them, Raven, a lovely dark coated f2 Savannah cat caught a frog. He calmly walked across the living room floor with it in his mouth.

The day before I had the chance to photograph Daria another fine example of an F2 Savannah kitten. Here he is playing in a tunnel, which these kittens love by the way.

Not all the kittens are F2s. There is a truly scrumptious looking F1 Savannah kitten who is named, Focus. He is distinctly larger despite being of a similar age and he is more cobby that the rangy F2s. This is not because he is an F1 but because his parents were that type.

He has wonderful ocelli (ear spots) on his ears. These are directly descended from his wild serval father. Here is a picture of his ear spots:

Here is a more conventional shot of Focus, who is going to turn out to be a fantastic F1 Savannah cat.

Finally, I mentioned Raven. He is a dark coated Savannah kitten. All the spots are there as usual but the background colour is darker.

Kathrin says that the darker Savannah kittens have the best temperaments. He purrs loudly all the time when he is near you and likes to be close to you or on you. Here is a picture of Raven:

May 22, 2010 A couple of questions
by: Finn Frode, Denmark

Hi Michael. Focus is a great looking kitten. I love the ways the clear stripes on his head and chest turns into spots on his body. And the white ear spots is a nice souvenir retained from the serval roots.
As Focus is an F1, I reckon his father must be a cerval an his mother a Savannah with domestic cats somewhere down the line. Do you happen to know what breeds of domestic cats have been used for the outcrossing that has created this very special look?
Also as this is a fairly new breed, I suppose the litters are not always homogeneous and that some kittens differ from the desired look. I have no doubt the Stucki’s do their utmost in finding good homes for these as well, but do you have any information on what level has been reached? I mean, is it 50% og 90% of a litter that are up to standards?

p.s. The A1 Savannah’s site says, ‘We do not declaw any of our Savannahs or Servals and strongly recommend against declawing.’ That’s fine, but I’m afraid recommending strongly is not enough. I hope a clause against declawing is part of the standard contract.

I love to see anything on Savannahs. My little Savannah Baby is 6 months old now. She is one of the darker colored ones. Her temperment is great. The rest of her siblings do not have great temperments. Her parents both are very friendly. I love the pictures of the kittens. The breeder that I purchased my Arora from has an A-1 Savannah. She is very beautiful as an F-3, and I cant wait to any kittens she produces.
