It's not that big of a deal, you just need to learn to read them, and that doesn't take too much time or effort.
Yep,,,,it's funny,,,,while rubbing him up he rubs his chin and face on the carpet like crazy. I watch for his ears to flatten. He never does the swat thing to Rhonda,,,Just me,,,

Iniko is beautiful, how are the introductions going with Amadeus, I'll bet they'll will be inseparable in no time. May I say, what great names your Bonnie babies have :)

Sabrina. 11yo and still a runway model at 8.5 lbs. Her Savannah neck is so skinny that she has to wear a kitten collar. She appears bigger than she is though; vet techs are always surprised when they pick her up.

Wow, hello pretty lady, what beautiful markings Sabrina has she looks very elegant and youthful for her age.
 
I'd like to start collecting some data on generational weights of Savannahs. There is lots of misinformation in the media and unfortunately also on some breeders sites. The more data collected, the better the confidence levels.

Clearly there are always outliers and the mission here is not to dispel that large or small cats don't exist in a generation, but rather stress how remote the possibilities are for a 25lb Savannah. I think this will be helpful information to have when people who are supporting our breed in front of states legislators have real data on what our breed weighs and just how rare these large examples are.

I have done plenty of statistical work in the past, primarily in political arenas but also a paid gig for an NBA team. The NBA stint was a lot of fun, but unlike baseball NBA coaches really want to stay at arms length from it. Not that they don't absorb the numbers but much more inclined to make their decisions with their gut than any statistical evidence.

So what I am looking for is the generation, sex and weight of your Savannah. They should be at minimum 3 years of age and given enough data I should be able to hit 70% confidence levels that a specific generation and sex should fall into a range. Again, there are going to be outliers and some generations like F2s will likely have a broader range.

Again, what I need is the weight, sex and generation of your Savannah and the assurance they are at minimum 3 years of age. If I missed anything let me know.

Thanks!
My F5

My F5 male was 21 pound (5 y/o), and well built (not as lean as some savannahs), even a tad on the fat size but still had a good healty shape. He died last winter of heart failure unfortunately.

His sister from the same litter is 14 pounds and healty. Yes, they are big, I hit the jackpot!

My new F3 is almost 5 months now, got him very small but now he’s almost seven pounds and growth rate still increasing, at about 1 pound / 10 days. Breeder says he’ll probably be a 25 pounder. He has huge paws and is awesome. Will come back in a few years
