The Savannah Cat

Savannah, Bastet Exotics

The Savannah is a tall lean graceful cat with striking dark spots and other bold markings. It is a domestic breed which closely resembles the African Serval, but is smaller in size.

 The Savannahs are affectionate and outgoing, with exceptionally long neck, legs, and tall ears, as well as a medium length tail, the Savannah is both unusual and beautiful.

The Savannah is also an exceptionally graceful and well balanced cat.


One of the most amazing traits of the Savannah is its remarkable personality. It is a very curious, assertive cat that seeks out adventure at every opportunity.

They are a extremely loyal cat who will bond strongly with its human family. The Savannah breed is a very effectionate feline that will show their love by greeting family members at the door, following them around the house and giving frequent headbutts.

Many Savannahs love to play in the water. They can easily be trained to walk on a leash with a harness, play fetch, come when called, and much more

The Savannah cat is a unique and amazing feline. Everyone who owns or have met a Savannah will say that they have never met a cat like them and become huge lovers of the breed as the Savannahs have a very “addictive” personality.

The Savannah is the perfect pet for someone who is seeking a unique and active pet.

Filial Generations

The F in F1 stands for  ‘filial’ and refers to how many generations away from the Serval it is. So an F1 is one generation from the Serval (has a Serval parent), an F2 is two generations removed so has a Serval grandparent, and so on.

The other classification you will hear in reference to Savannahs is a letter coding. This has to do with when and where in the pedigree outcrosses (non-Savannah domestic cats) have been used,

A means that one parent is a (non-Savannah) domestic outcross

B means that both parents are Savannahs

C means that both parents and grandparents are all Savannahs

SBT means that parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents are all Savannahs
