Marechal's Savannah Program is now located in Ohio
To the World of the Savannah Cat
The Savannah cat is a hybrid breed that is created using the exotic
cat. The Savannah cat is a fun loving, always on the go cat that you won't find
resting very often. These wonderful cats are extremely active and the earlier
generations (first and second generation) can grow up to 20 lbs. The
majority of Savannah cats range in size from 8 lbs to 18 lbs with the larger
cats being the early generation males. Savannahs normally look like they
weigh more than they do. With their long lean bodies and long legs a Savannah
can often look like it weighs at least 5 lbs more than it actually does.

History of the Savannah Cat Breed
Savannah Cats were originally bred back in the 1980's by a woman
named Judee Frank. Since then breeders have embraced her vision and have worked
to get fertile generations of males to be used with the early generation Savannah
females. Over the last couple years this dream has been realized. Many breeders
including Marechal Cattery are now using fertile male Savannahs in their
programs to create even more exotic looking offspring. This
was a long process of breeding with feline outcrosses to finally reach the
distance needed from the Serval cat to have males that were actually fertile. So
far there have been a very small amount of fourth generation males that are
fertile with most males having to be fifth or later generations to be fertile.
As we breed back to our Savannah females using the fertile Savannah males we
will begin to set the type of the breed which is, large ears, long lean legs and
bodies and large dark spots.

About Marechal Cattery
We are now working with
several breeding partners to continue our programs. We will have a few litters a
year due to cutting back on all of our breeding programs.
We are a domestic "hybrid" cattery specializing in the Chausie, Bengal, Safari
and Savannah domestic breeds. In Savannah Cats we are currently breeding the
F2 through F7 generations.
We only feed and recommend one food -
We have tried them all and this one works for all our cats and we love it.
To date they have not had a recall while every other major cat food company has,
many more than one time.
