Unusual escaped ‘Savannah cat’ in Onslow County, NC is a serval — 2 Comments

  1. I wonder how it wasn’t recognized as a serval. Just looking at her cat made me think it wasn’t a Savannah, even though I haven’t studied their markings that much.
    Something about her cat seemed different to me. The ears for one thing, and the facial markings. I also wonder how it was found and returned. I may look that up to satisfy my curiosity.

    • You are right Sandy. Even to a layperson this cat does not look like a domestic cat and Savannahs are domestic cats. The authorities are confused by wild cat hybrids. They don’t know where the dividing line is between domestic and wild which is why they struggle with formulating laws on keeping ‘exotic cats’.
