F1 Savannah cat jumps to top bunk to wake sleeping boy

This is a very successful video of F1 Savannah cat Magic waking up Andreas who is the son of Martin and Kathrin Stucki. The video was made about 13 years ago! At that time Martin and Kathrin were the owners and managers of the well-known Savannah cat breeder A1 Savannahs. The breeders are still there but they sold their business some time ago now. It is based near Ponca City, Oklahoma, USA.

F1 Savannah Magic at the time was the world’s largest domestic cat is measured to the shoulder (as per Guinness World Records). So, the video is very popular partly for that reason and partly because this highly impressive domestic cat has this enormous jump to the top bunk. Of course, the video was set up but who cares? The idea is to show the world how wonderfully athletic this fabulous cat was at that time.

I do not know the current status of Magic. Like I said the video was made about 13 years ago. At that time Magic must have been about two or three years of age. So, my guess is that Magic is presently nearing the end of our life.

Of course, I was very grateful to Martin and Kathrin for providing me with the raw material to make this video. I made quite a few videos of F1 Savannah cats thanks to this couple. They are a great couple. They currently run a hotel in Montana, USA as I recall. Martin is a very intelligent and energetic guy. And Kathrin is also a very intelligent person and she is very attractive as well. The cats were incredibly attractive too 😊.

They ran this enormous creeding establishment which was also a farm. It covered many acres. They had a guest house built on the estate. I stayed there for 10 days. They also bred servals. They had breeding servals in large enclosures. It was and no doubt still is a very impressive establishment. I’m sure that it is very different to your typical hobby breeder. This was a very large operation.

Martin used to drive into Ponca City in one of his cars and buy several boxes of frozen chicken legs, he came back to the facility and chucked them well over the place for the cats to eat. The hot temperatures defrosted the chicken very quickly. I remember beautiful Savannah kittens chomping down on raw chicken leg!

The relationship between Andreas and Magic was a special one. Her full name is ‘Scarlett’s Magic’. She was and perhaps still is with the Bella Gattini Cattery who opened a shop. See Savannah Cat Shoppe.

Plump and beautiful F1 Savannah kitten

This is a stupendous F1 Savannah kitten with a gorgeous spotted coat. All Savannah cats have spotted coats, inherited from the serval but this is a high contrast example in gray which looks amazing. The kitten’s expression is sweet and his body is plump and patently in excellent health. The video also indicates that he/she has a placid charater. All-in-all a great looking cat. You can see why F1 Savannah cats are popular as an exotic cat breed to adopt. Be throughtful though as when they are adults they demand more of their owners. And you can’t let them be indoor/outdoor cats. They don’t last a minute outdoors before someone cries “there’s a wild cat on the loose” and grab their rifle and shoot it! Perhaps I am exaggerating a bit but there have been F1 Savannah cat escapes from homes and when that happens the neighbourhood goes into paroxysms of anxiety.

Enjoy the video though. I don’t have any affiliation with the breeder. I just like the cat’s appearance. In fact I don’t like cat breeding particularly but we live in that kind of society: capitalistic. We have to let captilism have free-rein.

Video I made has 10 million views

I am blowing my trumpet and I feel that it is justified. This video has just passed the 10 million views mark today.

It is a fine video even if I say so myself. It is good because the cat is unique. She was or perhaps still is the world’s tallest domestic cat. She’s ‘Magic’ a first filial (F1) Savannah cat bred at A1 Savannahs in Oklahoma (near Ponca City). Currently Magic lives in California I believe.

The boy is the son, Andreas, of Martin and Kathrin Stucki, who owned A1 Savannahs at the time. They sold the business some time ago. The boy has grown up now. The video was made 8 years ago. This video has made quite a lot of money in advertising. I don’t know exactly how much but a reasonable sum in the thousands of dollars. But PoC has donated thousands of US dollars to animal rescue too.

The video material was recorded by Kathrin (on a Flip video camera) and I edited it and added the music. Some people don’t like the music but I think it works well. It is a tender, moving relationship. I expect that Andreas has not seen Magic for many years but I could be wrong.
