I love my Savannah cat. He’s a bit possessive (or is it me?) and he head butts me every time I come home. Then when I walk to the bedroom, he follows me. And when I walk out of the bedroom he keeps following me. He’s a darling. We’ve got a biggish garden and I he has taken to being walked around it on a leash, no probs. They say that the Savannah is dog like, well, I agree.
One thing that concerns me a bit, but we manage, is his reaction to tradesmen, you know, builders and the like. He always hisses and growls and then slinks away! I used to have a moggie and she was smart. But my big boy Savannah is smarter. Sometimes I think he runs the house. He’s learning to open the door. He jumps up and pulls the handle down and walks through. I’ll have to video that one day.
I think it is being smarter than usual that makes him so nosy. He is always poking into things so I have got to make sure there are no nasties around, things that might hurt him. It takes a bit more effort for me to care for him but it is worth it. And he likes to nibble whatever he can find which can be a danger.
He’s crazy about water too. Sometimes he’ll walk into the bathroom and jump into the bath while I am showering. I found that a bit odd at first but it seems perfectly normal now.
I definitely recommend a Savannah cat and I love my Savannah cat. But expect things to be a bit different.
