The Savannah Cat
Most people have an eye for the adorable love a good house cat can bring and don’t see much of a need to change them at all. Of course, there is always that person – or group of people – that want to improve upon a formula that really doesn’t need improving. Introducing the Savannah Cat – or as we like to call it, Housecat version 2.0. This enlarged domesticated feline is the product of breeding a domestic cat with a serval, an African cat known for its size and elongated ears. These hybrids are longer and more slender than your average housecat, giving it a more exotic look. Another leg-up they have on housecats is their loyalty, which is often compared to that of a dog. Savannah Cats can be trained like dogs and are known to be very social animals. Though the animal is not known to be dangerous, there are still bans in many areas, such as the ban on importation into Australia, due to the fear that the animal’s enhanced size and hunting skills could pose a threat to native species.
