The appearance of Savannah cats
Savannah is somewhat similar in appearance to a mini cheetah. She is distinguished by a noble posture. At the same time, unusually large ears, long legs and the famous cheetah color stand out clearly. The coat of this cat is short and rather soft. It does not require special care and is not a hassle even during molting.
The dimensions of Savannah depend primarily on the generation, which reflects the percentage of Serval's blood content:
- males of generation F1 and F2 - they are larger than an ordinary domestic cat. Reach 45 cm at the withers and weigh up to 14 kg;
- females of generation F1 and F2 are smaller. Height up to 40 cm. Weight up to 12 kg;
- males and females of the F3 and F4 generations - this is reflected in height and weight, as well as on the activity of behavior.
At the same time, due to their tall, lanky and graceful physique, even the lightest Savannah seems much larger and heavier than it really is.
The long hind legs are often higher than the front ones, the ears often have so-called eyes. Many of the breed have dark "tear streaks" or "cheetah tears". Kittens are born with blue eyes, but they gradually turn into green, brown, gold.
TICA (International Cats Association) describes the Savannah Cat standard as follows: spotted pattern including brown, black, silver and silver smoke, marbled, marbled tabby, purple and chocolate.
