About Exotic Paw Cattery Home
Welcome to Aarons Exotic Paw Cattery! In 2000, we created Aarons Exotic Paw Cattery because of pure love for the Exotic cat breed and with the intent to connect healthy Cats and Kittens with caring families. We breed for temperament, size, and overall general health. Our Kittens are quality breeds, we strive to raise the best kittens can so that we can make other families happy with our kittens as we are with them. They are raised and well handled every day from the day they are born so they are very spoiled with lots of love and attention.
We strongly discourage all breeding practices in which the health and well-being of innocent cats and kittens are compromised. All our kittens for sale carry a minimum of a 30-day health guarantee.
Note: When you purchase your kitten from us the first thing that you need to do is to take the cat to a licensed vet within 30 days to make sure he/she is in good health otherwise our refunds policy will not apply.
We invite any feedback you may have for us. Feel free to email us at exoticpawcattery101@gmail.
4 IMPORTANT THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SAVANNAH CATS
1) Observe the ears. These cats have inherited the large ears of the African serval. They are tall and long. Situated directly on top of the head, they point straight up, instead of out.
2) Pay attention to the eyes. The Savannah also has distinctive eyes. They are slightly hooded and the overhanging skin creates the appearance of eyes that are flat on top. This contrasts with the perfectly rounded eye shape of many other breeds. Their dark black/brown tear duct lines are prominent. Some have noticeable ocelli which are the ‘eyes’ on the back of the ears. Most often they are multi-colored to mimic an eye with white circular markings with darker bars above and below on the backs of the ears. Ocelli serve social functions, such as signaling to kittens and confusing predators. When cats play or fight the flattened forward-facing ears expose the ocelli to their opponent as a warning.
3) Look for spots. The most distinctive feature of the Savannah cat is their coat. They have markings somewhat similar to those of a wild African cat. Because Savannahs have been interbred with a variety of domestic breeds, their coats can vary somewhat. But there are important commonalities.
The Savannah’s coat can be brown, tan, silver, or gold, with dark spots. It can also be black with spots of a slightly different shade of black.
The Savannah’s spots can be round, oval, or elongated. It should have a series of parallel stripes along its back. Smaller spots will be on the face, legs, and feet.
The Savannahs are short-haired cats.
4) Pay attention to body type. Servals are medium-sized cats. As Savannahs become more interbred with domesticated cats they will decrease in size. A purer Savannah might be as big as 15 to 28 pounds.
More interbred Savannah’s might not be much larger than the average house cat. But they should still have especially long legs that often make them look bigger than they are.
5) Research the terminology. There is a rather extensive coding system for Savannahs. These codes represent the different types of breeds that the Savannah was interbred with – and thus its physical features – and also how many generations removed your cat is from the wild Serval.
The most basic terminology for Savannahs is their generational rank. An F1 is the direct offspring of a serval and a wildcat. An F2 is one generation removed, and an F3 is one more generation removed. The closer a Savannah is to an F1 the larger it should be.
6) Watch for personality. Because they are closer to their wild ancestors, Savannahs are not sedate lap cats. They are loyal, friendly, and can be extremely active. They are curious, playful, and energetic.
Savannahs will be particularly inclined to climb and make long, vertical jumps.
Savannahs’ curiosity and energy can get them into trouble. Be careful with your valuables and put guards over electrical wires.
