SAVANNAH CATS are very confident and outgoing. They interact well with people and other animals. They are active intelligent cats who adore company and love to play and interact with their owners. The Savannah should have a companion cat if he is going to be left alone for long periods ie. if the owner was out at work all day. They become bored easily and become reserved without interaction. They love to play fetch and can be trained to walk on a leash. They are very inventive in play and love to carry things around and hoard them, usually behind the TV! They do not require any grooming as they have short pelts though they do love water and might enjoy a bath.These terms refer to the Registration Codes given to our cats by our Feline Registry TICA.
A-registered Savannahs are Savannahs with only ONE Savannah parent, usually the Savannah mother and a domestic outcross sire (such as one of our permissable outcross breeds – Egyptian Mau, Oriental Shorthair, Ocicat or Domestic Shorthair).
B-registered Savannah is one in which both parents are Savannahs, but not all grandparents are Savannahs. For example, crossing an A-registered Savannah to another A-registered Savannah will give you B-registered offspring.
C-registered Savannahs are when all four grandparents are Savannahs … or two generations of Savannah to Savannah breeding. Crossing a B-registered Savannah to another B-registered Savannah will give you C-registered Savannah offspring.
SBT stands for "Stud Book Traditional" and is a cat with three generations of Savannah to Savannah breeding – all great-grandparents are Savannahs. Two C-registered Savannah s will produce an SBT litter. This is what is considered a purebred cat and is the eventual goal of our Savannah breed section.
These codes are not terribly important to the pet buyer, but critical to a breeder. To develop this breed, we need to progress through the codes to SBT. The importance to the pet buyer of codes might simply be that you might expect a "B" kitten to be typier than an "A" kitten. This is not true in all cases, as careful selection of the cats is necessary no matter what the "code" is.
