The F1 Savannah Cat
The F1 Savannah is the product of an African Serval parent and a Savannah cat parent.
The F1 Savannah will range from 50% – 88% wild blood.
F1's are the most wild of all the Savannah generations and the largest (with exceptions of some f2 males). When compared to a Serval, the F1 Savannah cats are much more manageable. They are usually very good with their litter box when properly trained as kittens, and won’t destroy your house like Servals do.
They will bond very strong with immediate family members, and some can be standoffish with strangers unless you socialize them properly early on.
F1's are not aggressive. They are very good with children in the family. When people they don’t know visit, they may retreat to a back room or stay in a cat tree or on top of the cupboards or high place to watch everyone and observe until you bring out a toy for them to play with and show off how athletic and fun they are. they are great with wand toys!
They do love to show off (most Savannah Cats of all generations do.) they love to jump high to catch their favorite toy in the air. They are very fast and skilled! F1's are also masters at the game of fetch! Throw their favorite toy or ball and they will chase it and prance in happiness as they bring it back to you to throw again! (F2's and most other lower generations of savannahs love fetch as well!)
They love to show off and love to be praised when doing something right. If you praise them as they catch a toy or sit and shake, they will do it time and time again.
It is very important to hold your F1 as much as you can while they are young because if you do not, the F1 will never want to be held. They won't be aggressive about it, but more annoyed. Our F1's LOVE to be held and will let strangers hold them because we are so hands on with all of our kittens as soon as they are born.
F1's at Luxury Savannahs do love attention and affection, and they will not disappoint you. We hold and pet and give a lot of affection to your kitten before they arrive into your arms. F1's are very athletic and want to play with you and expend energy, but F1 Savannahs are not always 'lap cats'. F1's at Luxury Savannahs usually love to lay on you, lay with you or next to you in bed. they love to give a lot of affection and head butts, but they are very large so they might not be found on your lap constantly. Although we do have past owners who will send us photos of their F1 from us that will be cuddled up on their lap or lay in bed with them or their children!
Trips to the vet can be challenging when they are older unless you make sure you take your F1 for rides in the car as much as you can. They enjoy car rides almost anywhere, whether its the park, the store, or a family members house. We even take F1's with us to Starbucks drive through to get a tasty whipped cream treat and people 'ooo' and 'awww' at them as we socialize them with the strangers and sights and smells in different places.
There are owners of F1 Savannahs that also do great traveling on long car rides! Although most F1's would rather stay home, if you do a lot of traveling, do it while your kitten is young so when he/she gets older, he/she will know your routine and will be happy to join you in traveling.
If a F1 savannah is upset, occasionally they will opt not to use the litter box so just keep him/her happy and there will be no worries of a mess. If this happens, you will need to re-train your f1 by putting them back into a small room or bathroom with a ltiter box, cat tree, and food dishes and not let them have run of the house for 2-4 weeks until you feel they have been re-trained.
F1's can be taught to walk on a harness and most love to play in water, whether it be in your shower or bath tub, an outside pond or pool, the garden hose or sprinkler.
F1 Savannah's range in size with males being 17 to 30 pounds, standing approximately 16 to 20 inches at the shoulder and 22 to 25 inches from chest to rump. F1 females are usually 12 to 25 pounds.
Price ranges from $15,000 to $25,000.
