Below is a link to the savannah cat pictorial presentation of the savannah cat breed standard put together by Patti Struck with contributions by many breeders/owners. This presentation will give you an idea of what we are looking for in type. Please note: this is a large file...

I should say that I think it was put together by someone else and then patti modified it...I want to be sure credit is given where it is due and will try to find out who did the original work.

I have come across that before, and it is extremely informative. I'm very interested in showing... Only problem is though, I can read that over and over again and still find my cats perfect, lol even though they aren't, it is still so hard to see past the savannah standard versus the love that makes mine beautiful to me! :)


If anyone is willing to do a critique on one, or all three of mine let me know, i don't think I could express how grateful I would be just to hear from someone who knows the type to be able to give me a critique of my girls.. I don't mind criticism since I love them unconditionally, I think all I would like is to see how a judge would access them in a show setting! If anyone is interested I can email particular pictures :-D

This is exactly why showing is so valuable! We all see perfection in our cats (sometimes referred to as cattery blindness as opposed to 'love is blind') until we are able to compare them to other Savannahs in the show ring, and see them through the judges' and other peoples' eyes.

I would be happy to critique your cats, but I will be honest so be prepared... :) You can send the pics privately to patti@jasirisana.com if you want.
