Thanks Catperson! I'm not thinking about getting one anytime soon, and I may never will, but I agree. It's always best to start with something "simpler." :)

Hi Ash,

Yes he is "simpler" :lol: , well compared to a serval. But he is nothing like a domestic that is for sure.

Hi TamanduaGirl,

Thank you for all the information on Jake. I also love the photo of him playing in the snow. How old is he? He looks like he still can/does act like a kitten.

He's about a year, just a bit over. We found him end of Nov last year and he was guessed at about 3 months. Yeah he still acts very kitten like.

This cat is beautiful! I would love to see more photos. I think I will be getting an F2 savannah sometime in my future. I would really like a serval but would like to get married before I work on that.

When Jake came in from playing in the snow to see if we had anything good for breakfast his tail was all puffed up but the rest of his fur was normal. I really can't seem to remember if he puffed his tail more as a kitten like when playing or not.

Yes it tends to be hard to find a husband when you have a wild cat. It seems hard to find a husband when you have domestic cats and F3 Savannah.

If my F3 is anything to go by I would say good luck. My home is sure sounding different :mrgreen: . He is loves playing with stuff :lol:. Like closet doors, anything that moves and such.

Hi Trish_Claire,

He is getting huge in just the past two weeks. Here are two more photo's showing my ugly bathroom and Loki's pretty ears and spots. Yes his name is Loki. Unless you or anyone else has a better idea. Thank you very much for the kind comments as well :mrgreen: .

Hi FoxAdorer817,

Thank you very much for the kind complements on my boy and his name. He has only been here two weeks but living with him has been quite an experience.

He is growing like a weed and running like a cheetah/horse. Cheetah due to his speed and horse cause he is NOT light on his feet. I can hear him running clear across the house. But when he walks he is SILENT. So it is amazing the difference in noise level.

Also whenever I bend over he jumps right on my back :roll: :mrgreen: . I do not even hear him coming when he does that. But suddenly I feel a body on me and LOUD purring in my ear. Then licks and nibbles on my ear.

So that's just a snippet of what he is like to live with. If you want more details let me know :mrgreen: .

Hi Lasergrl,

He seems to have doubled his length and grew tall wise a few inches in just two weeks. Is that normal? He does not seem to be gaining much weight despite his huge growth spurt. Is that normal? I am feeding him "unlimited" dry food. The brand the breeder raised him on. Its called Life's Abundance. None of my other cats like it but he sure does. He is eating three bowels a day. Is it normal for a Savannah cat to eat so much? I know he is a kitten but he eats like crazy.

Thank you in advance for your time and help :mrgreen: .

Hmm, It has been so long since I had a litter but they usually are quite big and rapid growers. My coworkers used to call one male kitten I had the linebacker as he was so big. With kittens they can eat as much as they want and as long as they arent getting fat its no big deal. Sounds like an ok food from what i recall.

Hi Lasergrl,

I am sorry it has been so long since you had a litter. Thank you for all the information. The food that he is used to eating that Nature's Promise is NOT all that well made if you ask me. I would say it is okay at best. If you want I will post the ingredients tomorrow. But that is what he is used to eating.

Thank you for the information on his growth. Since at four months and a few days old he is already as big as some of my adult cats. Tall and length wise. He sure is NOT fat. Since he is growing on it I am going to wait another week before transitioning him onto another food.

What food do you recommend? I was thinking Eukanuba or Iams. This cat will eat ANYTHING. He tries to eat the other cats food and human food. He has even tried to eat canned dog food that wild raccoons will not eat. But I do not want to upset his stomach so how should I transition him onto another food? This week I am transitioning him onto my local water from bottled water and so far so good. But I do not want to change his diet until I am sure he is okay with the water transition. When I say okay I mean stomach/bowel wise.

Thanks and sorry for all the questions.

I am really liking taste of the wild food. I have it out for my serval and he does well on it. Alot of animals that dont digest other things well, will be quite normal on it.

Thank you so much. This one so far seems to have a normal stomach. I just do not want to upset it. Now is there a way to buy Taste of the Wild in bulk? Since he eats more then my adult domestics almost.

Also how long will he REALLY grow for? I have been told a year or two. Is that really true? If so I am a tad worried he maybe huge. I can say a Savannah's personality is big enough. I would like the physical body to be manageable.

Thank you :piggy:
