I have a size question


Savannah Super Cat
How big should a female F2 at 5 months/22 weeks be? Is there a size comparison? She is very long and can just super high but I saw a pic of an F2 male at 8 months and he could reach the counter top standing on his back paws. She is definitely bigger than other 5 month olds but I just want to be sure that she is where she should be :)
Thanks in advance

In average, A male F2 is mostly larger than a female F2. But there are no guarantees on how large any cat may be. But all in all, a male is usually significantly larger then a female of the same generation.
Rest easy. Rayne looks very healthy and normal to me. But I am NOT a breeder so take it for what it's worth.

Every cat is an individual and grows differently at different ages. That being said, most females are smaller than males, except at the F1 generation...most savannahs are not huge - that is just a myth!

I have had F2s range between tiny to huge, so as Cary and Paige have said, each is an individual and will grow at their own pace and time. There's no comparison chart (that I'm aware of) because there really is no 'average' for these cats.

Absolutely agree with all of the above :)

I have one F2 girl and she is our smallest and least tall cat here. Size is really a crapshoot, at best...I bet your girl (like mine) is huge in personality, though :)

I have a boy and girl f2. My boy is much taller than my girlie, he is thin and all legs. My girl is about 15 lbs and is long, she can really stretch out, but won't be confused for a german shepherd anytime soon! They both just look like good sized cats, though. Their personality? HUGE.

My daughter has an F2 female, about 1-1/2 yrs old and she weighs 14 lbs, my male F2 1 yr old weighs 23 lbs and is almost double her physical size. They are both from the same parents, so I guess that there is no guarantee on how large a cat will be, even from the same parents. Males are typically larger than females.
