a serval

The Savannah cat breed is a result of crossing a wild feline, the serval, with a domesticated cat. As the Savannah cat breed already exists for some years, it is now possible to cross a serval with a domestic cat who is already a Savannah. For example a Savannah female who’s grandfather is a serval. That means the kittens of this breeding combination will not have (theoretically) only 50% ‘serval blood’, but more then 50%.

Generally it can be said that the greater the amount of serval blood in its bloodline, the more the cat will look like its beautiful serval ancestor.

Breeding Savannah cats is quite difficult. This makes the Savannah cat an exclusive and special pet.
