Some of you know we were purchasing a Savannah kitten to make part of the family.
Well yesterday we picked him up, made the 3 and a half hour drive back home with him and got him settled in.
We watched all the youtube videos that express because Savannah's are direct descendants from the African Serval, that they are a lot different from
a typical house cat.
We thought we knew what to expect....
Boy were we wrong!
You dont truly know what to expect unless you have actually spent some time with the breed.
And what a breed they are.
He is amazing!
I took at least 50 pictures and 5 videos yesterday of him.
Just playing with him and interacting, getting to know each other.
We have him in kitty quarantine in our bedroom. We have 2 other cats, both 10 years old and a German Sheppard pup, who was actually born the same day
as our new kitten.
So they have been smelling each other under the door, playing, and then hissing a little bit - which is normal.
Its a slow introduction.
We fed Nova last night. I put his chicken in his bowl, and he attacked it!
Making growling and chuffing noises while he ate.
I thought he was being food aggressive, but found out, that's just what they do.
He didnt attack me when I pet him while he ate.
Its just the sounds of a Savannah cat.
I will upload some videos to youtube eventually, but for now, here are some pictures of the little guy!
(sorry the pics came in weird. Been using my Ipad to take the pictures)
