Okay, so if it’s not the beautiful city in Georgia, then what is the Savannah?
The Savannah is one of the fast-growing favorites of cat lovers around the world!
A little over 20 years ago (I know that sounds like a long time ago, but nowadays 20 years is like a blink of the eye!) the first-generation Savannah was born. The kitten was the result of a breeding between a female domestic cat and an African Serval. The kitten looked so much like a Serval that they named it Savannah…..and so it also became the name of the breed!
Today this curious, loyal breed of cat is an Advanced New Breed in TICA and quickly working towards its Championship status thanks to the hard work of dedicated breeders.
Although they can’t compete at shows, you may be able to see Savannahs on exhibition at a local show.
You can learn more about the Savannah and print out the breed’s history and information about its personality. And don’t forget to check the show schedule to see if a TICA show is coming to your neighborhood soon! You can contact the show management to see if Savannahs will be at the show.
