How Much Does a Savannah Cat Cost?

The Savannah cat is a domestic breed that is a cross between an African Serval and the domestic cat that started in the early 1980s.  Their cross is very popular among breeders since it greatly resembles a wild cat.  These cats are different than most domestic cats since these cats can be trained on a leash and are capable of learning tricks such as playing fetch.  Savannah cats are expensive since this breed is difficult to find and there are few breeders who have successfully created the perfect Savannah cat.

F1 (50% Serval)Tend to be up to 25 pounds and measure 20 to 25 inches tall. F1s, out of all generations, will have the most "wild" Serval bred into them. Tend to hide a lot, especially if they don't know the person.$7,000 to $20,000 $5,000 to $24,000
F2 (30% Serval)Typically weigh 20 to 25 pounds and can be similar to the F1, maybe a bit shorter. Tend to be much more social since they are more domesticated.$3,400 to $15,000 $3,000 to $12,000
F3 (19% Serval)Weighs about 12 to 18 pounds and can look similar to a typical house cat. These cats do love attention, to sit on laps and will be more loving.$2,500 to $5,000 $3,000 to $5,000
F4 (15% Serval)Will weigh the same as an F3 and the only noticeable difference is the shape.$900 to $2,500 $1,000 to $4,000
