    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking at an F1. Moved from an Apt to house this year. Wondering if an F1 will destroy my house? Does an F1 shed a lot? If people come over my house will it be evident that I own a cat? Not sure how F1 friendly my home is (Safety is KEY for a new pet). LOL am I going to find my sofas or egg chairs clawed or eaten? Am I over thinking this?

    ** I want to make the best decision as this is a forever choice.

    Pics of my house for reference.. (Honest Thoughts?)

    Thanks,
    Dan :)

    Hi Dan, and welcome! I can't give you any advice re: F1 cats, but others here will be able to. With my own cats (F3-F7) I have not lost any furniture, but I do have lots of their own (trees and such) so they won't be tempted.

    I love your house! I love the mid-century mod decor, too :) For what it's worth, I used to have, and recently sold, a vintage Herman Miller aluminum group recliner and footstool (or side table). Even after 3 years with the cats, the leather did not have one scratch in it...and it sat in our living area all that time, uncovered!

    LOL, looks like your house comes with lots of 'built in' Savannah entertainment... not sure how long it will last though... ;)

    I would say... You don't have a million knick-knacks, so that is positive. And you don't have the type of couch a Savannah would love to shred- so I don't think an F1 would be too hard on your house.

    Welcome, Dan!!! Lots of entertainment there for a savannah of any generation ;) Not having an F1, I cannot advise you, so will let others do so.

    Love your house...

    You have a few things in your home that any cat would have a field day with. Our Maine Coon would take down all the pretty twigs and you might lose the little chandelier as well. But, aside from very common cat distractions, I cannot see anything in your home that an F1 Savannah would be attracted to in particular (-:

    My husband just looked over my shoulder and he also thinks the live plants and the stars on the wall would create cat chaos. He is right. Those sort of things lead to irresistible urges in cats (-:

    You have lots of room to put some great cat furniture in. The more stuff of his own he has, the less likely he'll bother yours. The same is true for any cat.

    ....the open balcony, open hearth (does the damper close shut?), the blinds.....sorry, your house would need cat proofing for any generation or breed :) Not trying to scare you; but these are future cat attractions I can see:)
