The Savannah is the tallest of all cat breeds, being a cross between the leggy wild African serval and a common domestic cat. Some savannahs have been bred since the 1980’s but the breed was not popularized until the late 1990’s and were not accepted to TICA (The International Cat Association) until 2001. Fans of this breed can obtain a kitten for between one and twenty thousand dollars in the USA, depending upon the percentage of serval DNA present in the litter.
