Possible Savannah

Agreed with the others... there's more Bengal influence in the looks than Savannah. But not impossible that she is a later generation Savannah, and the beauty of adopting without papers means you are free to decide what she is :)

There's no special vet care for a Savannah that shouldn't be for any other cat. Breeders of all breeds debate the killed-modified live vaccine question, advocate no ketamine as anesthetic etc... this are careful breeder advice but not breed-specific.

Welcome Stitch. Very nice of you to share your home with the great looking cat.
I'm curious about the neck. Is it longer than usual in a cat? I could not tell from the posted pictures. When the cat is standing, does the body appear longer and leaner than usual? Does the cat seem taller than usual? I can see both Bengal and Savannah possibilities. The chirping has me intrigued.

She is so pretty! She looks similar to the Bengals at the gourmet Pet Beastro I go to. They are such sweet cats. The chirping is interesting isn't it? My F7 does but the f5 does not. I have heard many cats do that no matter what the breed, it's still the funniest thing ever! I'd have to look at my F5s family tree again to see if he has Bengal in him or Pam might know since his daddy was her Mokaholi :)

If she is that rambunctious now and chirping away you are in for a world of fun! Hyper cats are the best! She will make you laugh every day!

Her neck is longer than our domestic cats, and she's taller than her as well but 2 months younger

Very interesting. The bengals I had were not taller and the necks were not much longer. I would not be surprised there is a savannah in her background. The coat color even looks right.

Yes, Wiggles does have Bengal on his dad's side, coming from his paternal grandfather, Malaki :) Many Savannahs do have some in their pedigrees, as they were often used before Savannah males became reliably fertile. A few breeders still use the occasional Bengal in their programs.

I have one chirper here: our F6C boy. He makes the cutest chirps and trills! It sounds like he is singing a song, lol. My DSH girl (Wiggles' grandmother) also chirped while a kitten, but she stopped doing it at about a year old :(

I agree with the others that she has alot of Bengal in her but she is definitely not your run of the mill house cat and she looks like she will be alot of fun. Bengals are actually similar to the Savannah in that they're high energy, hyper cats and they're a joy to have as pets.
