1) What is a Savannah?

The Savannah is a hybrid domestic cat breed. 

It is a cross between the serval and a domestic cat.
It is very difficult to breed due to the size difference between the Serval 
and the female or the fertile male (F5) and the female F1 or F2. 
The males are only fertile at the fifth generation. 
It is possible that a F4 male can be fertile but rarely. 
All of the foundations Savannahs have an F and a number that indicate 
the number of generations that separate them from their ancestor, 
the Serval. When the kitten has Savannah parents for at least three generations, 
it becomes SBT Savannah, for instance a pure Savannah.

There are many advantages to adopt a SBT Savannah. 
The SBT Savannah is more consistent regarding its type. 
Its personality, size and temperament are more uniform. 
Among its characteristics, it has big ears with ocelli, 
a long and leggy body and a magnificent spotted coat like the Serval.

2) What size my Savannah can reach?

The size varies according to the size of the parents and the kitten’s generation. 
The biggest are the F1 and the F2 males that are between 16 and 30 lbs. 
The F3, F4 and F5 generations are generally smaller while keeping their wild look.

3) The temperament of the Savannah

J
I would say that it is more feline than the classic cat. 
The Savannah prefers playing than sleeping. 
It is a very active cat, so you have to be ready to devote 
a bit of your time each day to play with it. 
It is very nimble, an excellent climber, very curious. 
It will make you laugh with its numerous feats. 
It is also a very intelligent cat. He will follow you in the house like a dog. 
It is very loyal to its owner. It likes water and can bath with you sometimes. 
And of course, it is very cuddly. The Savannah will adapt to children, dogs and other cats.

In conclusion, I would say that you do not get bored with a Savannah! 
Regarding its diet and health, the Savannah is like any other breed of cat.
