Kittens are well socialized: plenty of hands-on
handling during that critical period of 2-8 weeks, my kittens
are all born and raised indoors in my home. Some kittens may
be bottlefed. A deposit is required
to hold the kitten of your choice. I accept Paypal and all
forms of checks for a deposit.
I am in Virginia.
I am happy to drive to meet people from surrounding states
such as MD, PA, DC, TN, OH, or KY if that will help to avoid a flight.
But I do ship kittens if necessary, currently only within the
US, kittens must be at least 11 weeks to travel by air.

of what they may look like as adults.
How are my
kittens different from others: My kittens all trace back
to my own original cross of maine coon breed girls to a serval.
The maine coon breed is large and mellow tempered. (But despite
Maine Coons having long hair, my kittens are all short haired because
long hair is a recessive trait.)
just a small number of F2 and F3 litters every year, usually
More about me : I am a dog
and cat veterinarian working 1-2 days a week, part time stay at home mom,
and part time Savannah cat breeder. My human/cat family is located
near Charlottesville, VA.
About Savannah Health: I have
not found Savannahs to differ in their veterinary or nutritional
needs from regular cats. In particular I've been breeding for nearly
20 years and my kittens have not ever had problems with any kind of vaccine
or anesthetic. Please be aware though that sensitivities to medications
can be a heritable phenomenon: just because my own lines of cats have not
had problems does not mean if you buy a kitten elsewhere you can ignore
any warnings the breeder may give you.
In general the Savannah cat breed appears
to not have frequent problems with any one disease or disorder. Several
genetic issues have come to light as coming in from other breeds during
the early days of breeding, and breeders are now actively working to eradicate
these by testing and restricting the breeding of any affected or carrier
kittens. My kittens come with a comprehensive health guarantee that includes
a guarantee against PK deficiency, PRA, and any other congenital problem
that could come to light up to one year of age.
Feel free to write
me and ask any questions at all on the Savannah cat in general
or my kittens in particular, whether or not you are interested
in a kitten at the time.

The lower percentages look less like
servals, here we see a F10 in its natural habitat.
