I am really looking forward to having her joining my house... She looks like a bundle of fun.

I don't know if it is just me, but her tail looks very short for her size.... I am assuming and hope it grows into proportion, or how about some expert advice or direction, as I truly do not know. (Noting Pictures 3 and 4)

You can't really tell how long her tail is by these pictures because it is swishing to the side in both shots rather than coming straight out from the body. Not sure what you mean 'hope it grows into proportion' - for a Savannah, the shorter the tail the closer to the standard it fits, with an ideal tail being hock length.

It does look nice and short. I love it!

Maybe I have just always had long tail cats... Sylvester's tail was so long that when he would swish around, especially if he was not happy would smack his head and that would only make him more PO'd.

They are supposed to have short tails, so this is good! Nyah has a hock length tail. Kovu has a monkey tail. If he keeps growing, he may grow into it! Not sure that is even possible in reality, but it looks funny next to Nyah.

Thank you... Guess I failed to take into account the breed... We will all be following her for the next 15, 20 years and hopefully more.

It will be fun to follow her as she grows up! Heck knows I have made the rest of you look at pictures of Kovu since he was days old through now and of Nyah since I got her! I love that we all get to "know" each others kitties!
