The Savannah cat is an intelligent breed and there are reports of them being trained to walk on a lead, sit, lie down, fetch, and perform other simple tricks! For cat training ideas and advice, read our Train Your Cat series. They are said to have affectionate, outgoing and loyal personalities and are good with both children and other animals while also maintaining a flavour of the exotic. They've got this very wild instinct in them - moving differently to most domestic cat breeds.

A lean and graceful medium-boned cat, the Savannah cat has striking spots (without rosettes). It closely resembles its African ancestor, the African Serval. The breed has a long neck and legs, large ears, and a medium length tail.

Remember! All breed profiles are general and every cat is an individual.
