Savannah breeds are also known as “Asher”. This is a hybrid of a wild African cat and ordinary home.
A distinctive feature of these cats is curiosity. They like to carefully examine the space in which they are, open all the boxes, cabinets, climb into all cracks. Savannah loves to accompany her master like a shadow, and actively take part in everything that he does, not embarrassed to poke his nose in a thick of events. Such behavior can annoy many, but Savannah considers himself a companion and partner, so he has no doubt that her place is next to the owner.
It is very important to give these cats a lot of time from early childhood. Without constant communication with a person, they very quickly dine and become uncontrollable. At an older age, they need constant contact either with a person or with other animals: the loneliness of the savannah tolerates poorly and becomes aggressive.
Despite the frightening size, it is a very affectionate and devoted breed of cats. But it is worth noting that also very demanding. If she wants to talk with the owner (and communication with people is generally very important for cats of this breed), she will not hint and wait until she descends to her, but will very actively attract attention, including meowing.
By the way, Savannah very quickly gets used to new people. Therefore, if you give the cat for the time of vacation, keep in mind that upon returning you can be surprised to find that she chose a new house and new owners.
Savanns are very independent. They cannot be treated like ordinary cats. If the savannah does not respond and does not want to go to his hands to the owner, it is impossible to force her.
These cats are very playful in childhood, and even becoming older. Therefore, it is important that they have a sufficient number of toys that can be taken out, gnawing and scratching. The owner should be very neat during games with the savannah-still wild instincts make themselves felt, and the cat can, playing, cause serious harm even to his beloved owner. For this reason, you should not leave them alone with children unattended.
These cats do not need difficult care. It is important to comb the wool at least once a week and regularly clean the ears of the animal.
Savannah loves to swim and play in the water. Therefore, in the warm season, you can leave her filled containers with water the cat will be satisfied.
Conditions of detention
It should be emphasized once again: Savannah very large cats. In a city apartment, they will not feel comfortable. They need space for hunting and games. So that the scale of the problem was understood: for example, these cats can easily be jumped from a height of 2.5-3 meters, and in length as much as 6 meters.
Therefore, it is worth starting them only if the potential owner is able to provide them with the necessary freedom of movement. Otherwise, in a closed space, the cat can behave aggressively and destroy everything around.
It is important that the cat has the opportunity to walk a long and a lot, including on the leash.
