    :( Actually it irrates me when I get this type of email, asking me to go measure the cats. But I thought to my self I will at least measure my F1s since I figure even I wonder :cautious:


    The measurements are for 6 months of age. Just an average of all four but most are the same for all.

    F1 savannah 41 to 42 inch reach.

    F1 savannah from the neck to tail they are all 16 to 17 inch but Alba is 22 inches.

    F1 savannah from foot to top of head (Not including ears, should I have?) they are 18.5inches to 19 inches

    Interesting facts: Alba is longest, shortest tail but shortest height of the girls. Frosting has the longest tail at 11 inches.

    I can understand why they ask, I just wish it was easier to tell them I can't really tell you. And now people are saying other breeders are doing it and its...... blah.

    Just type up the measurements on a sheet of paper and laminate it and stick it on your back ;)

    Yup, that is usually the first question people ask me! I honestly do not know, nor do I care lol. I did measure my F6C boy just because I was curious.

    The problem is that we are facing so many bans because everyone thinks all Savannahs are HUGE and WILD!!! At cat shows, I always play down the large cat syndrome and play up the personality, etc. Especially in states where F1's are illegal...

    But I understand why they ask...I'm glad you are the way you are, Michelle ;)

    I tell them I don't know nor do I care. My cats are tall and leggy and I care more for the standard then trying for some crazy height. That nonsense bugs me. We all have better things to do with our day! If you are curious and want to measure, great! Otherwise- blah.

    Me too, Trish! I try to end the Size question with: it is the huge personality of the Savannah that makes them seem big!

    I measured one of our Savannahs at fourteen feet: the distance it ran from kitchen to living-room couch when I started measuring it.

    yeah, I know, doesn´t count, yes yes yes...
