Breed Standards


Breed standard of the Savannah Cat

The anatomy of the Savannah cats never ceases to amaze us - breed standard

They are tall, long, slender, with long hind legs. Furthermore, a different anatomy than other cats and absolutely nothing to compare. This is easily recognizable by your sagging long back. Her gait is elegant and can be equated with a sneaking cat of prey. To keep it that way, there is the breed standard.

For example, you can see the physical superiority of the Savannah cat, its extraordinary musculature ensures great balance of power. They do not suffer from obesity and the serval’s appearance is inherited. Of course, an optimal selection of parent animals is essential and initially not easy to implement without outside help.

Elongated and triangular cats

Accordingly, their head is small, elongated and triangular. At best marked with an M on the forehead. The dark tear line reinforces the wild feline impression. They have a long neck, large ears with game spots, a so-called thumbprint on the back of the ears.

In addition, the lightening of the base color takes an average of 1.5 years. Then the completion of the coat pattern is reached.

In any case, we prefer a long and, above all, thick tail! Most prefer a short fat cock, but we disagree. And their hind legs should be longer and stronger than the front legs. Nice dab spots with a strong black contrast. And in the colors Brown Black, Golden Brown Black and Silver Black Spotted Tabby & Black (Melanistic).


In a mating among Savannah cats

When mating Savannah cats, you should always make sure that the Savannah stud is really a purebred. To promote the establishment of the breed and to be able to breed really typey and beautiful Savannah kittens.

So far there are not that many F5 SBT Savannah breeders, as most of them are too money conscious and prefer the first generations. However, lower generations have several disadvantages, many mark despite spaying and are significantly wilder than F5 SBT Savannah cats, which makes keeping them much more difficult.
