Savannah Super Cat
Darlene, welcome. And condolences on your loss but congratulations on your new addition. I too live in NJ and I'm owned by a female F5 Savannah. She is 4 years young and is extremely energetic. I have other male cats (part Bengal, part Lynx Siamese and 1 domestic short hair) also high energy and they get along so well together. Whiskey is actually smaller than my Lynx Siamese, Valentino and not all Savannahs are huge. She is also extremely intelligent...even when she's resting, the wheels inside are turning. I have 2 suggestions: #1) if at all possible go to a cat show first and #2) ask any and all questions you may have before you decide to get one. I asked a ton of questions before I made the decision to get a Savannah and no question is too stupid or silly. It is better to ask NOW before you decide than after you bring one home.
