Savannah cat

The Savannah cat is a hybrid between a domestic cat and a serval, the small African cat responsible for the Savannah cat's striking coat. The Savannah cat was first bred in the mid 1980s and has since become one of the most-desirable kitty choices on the luxury pet market. Savannah cat owners can usually expect to pay up to $5,000 for a healthy kitten.
