Savannah

savannah kittenSavannah kittens are the result of crossing a domesticated cat with a serval. A serval is a wild cat from Africa.

In 1986, a bengal breeder, crossbred a Siamese female with a male serval. The offspring of this mating was the start of the Savannah breed. By 1996, a breed standard was devised for the Savannah, and in 2001, the International Cat Association accepted the registration of the breed as stated earlier.

Savannahs are classified according to how many generations away they are from their serval relation. F1 means the kitten is about 53% serval, F2 is only about 29% serval. There are many classifications used with Savannahs in this manner. F1s are the hardest to breed because this group is usually the domesticated cat being directly bred with a serval instead of a serval and savannah or savannah-to-savannah combination.
