Here is a Savannah Cat four generations removed from the African Serval called Melody who had a litter of three kittens on 14th February 2009.

Three days later we had a litter of two Bengal kittens in need of constant care so we placed the kittens near the bed of the Savannah mum.  She rushed out of her bed and grabbed the kittens one after the other, cleaned them up and nestled them in to feed. 

They all took to each other straight away and started to feed immediately. 

 Two weeks later our Savannah mum still continues to fed and clean both the Savannah Kittens and the Bengal Kittens as if they were her own.

Melody is such a super Savannah mum.  She purrs as soon as you approach her and the kittens and she really do not mind if you pick them up to check them over. 


We can see the difference between the Bengals and Savannah Kittens because:

  1. The spots on the Bengal Kittens are bigger with the markings of rosettes appearing already at two weeks whereas the Savannah kitten's spots are smaller and follows through in a more organised straight line.  The fur on the Savannah Kittens are slightly longer.

  2. The Bengal Kittens are more tubbier and rounded and the Savannah Kittens are noticeably longer and leggier.

  3. We can clearly see the ocelli on the back of the ears of the Savannah Kittens  in contrast to the Bengal Kittens where it can hardly be seen if at all.

  4. The faces of the Savannah Kittens appears to be much more longer and triangular in shape in comparison to the Bengal Kittens which are more rounded.

We will keep you posted on their progress.
