Exotic Felines breed 2nd generation (F2), 3rd
generation (F3) and 5th generation (F5 SBT) kittens, for
F3 kittens will be 'C' grade, meaning the grade just before
SBT. SBT kittens (Stud Book Tradition) means that the kitten
have at least 3 generations of Savannahs; the parents, grand-parents
and grand grand-parents are all Savannahs. We wish to offer
the most possible generations, the 2nd up to the 5th. We are
in the expension process to be able to produce all of these
generations. There is more generations that are far from the
Serval, but the charasteristics are too diluted.
Exotic Felines is the first cattery in Quebec to have a F1
female at 62,5% Serval, a F4 SBT and a F5 SBT male. Since
we have a F4 SBT female with a F5 SBT male, our F5 SBT kittens
will be superior quality being from an exclusive Savannahs
line with SBT parents.
If you ask yourself which generation of Savannah is right
for you, read the following, it might help you.
The first generation, the african Serval hybridation with
a pure breed housecat is called F1. The F1 male can weight
18 to 30 lbs in average, is 16" to 20 " high (from
shoulder to floor) and is 22" to 26" long (without
the tail). The F1 female can weight 14 to 24 lbs in average.
Even if they have a high Serval percentage, they are not the
kind of cat who are going to destroy the house. They only
have one or two master. They are going to be more distant
with strangers but they are not agressive cats. Usually, they
won't socialize very well with very young children and strangers.
But there's always exceptions. When they meet strangers, they
may go in another room or climb high to look at the scene
from a distance. They are very playful cats and spend alot
of energy, they aren't "couch-cats" and probably
won't let you hold them. F1 Savannahs are highly intelligent
and veterinary visits can be difficult. After one bad visit,
they are going to remember it and hate it. They are using
the litter box. But sometimes,
it's possible that they won't go in the litter box if they
feel offended or they're trying to tell you something. They
are very attracted by plastic bags on the floor. They can
be walked with a leash and harnest and are extremely in love
with water, they can even take a bath or shower with you.
Syminou Exotic Felines do not breed F1 kittens, because
it's illegal to own a Serval in Quebec. We have one F1 female
here to breed F2 kittens.
The F2 male can weight 17 to 27 lbs in average, is 15"
to 18" high (from shoulder to floor) and is 20"
to 23" long (without the tail) but we saw some at 30
lbs and more.... The F2 female can weight 12 to 18 lbs in
average. They are very close to their family and children.
They are very playful cats and spend alot of energy, they
aren't "couch-cats" and probably won't let you hold
them for hours, but will sleep on you if they wish to. When
strangers come to the house, they will keep their distance
at first, but will soon come and greet the newcomers and let
them pet him. The veterinary visits are easier than with a
F1. Of course, they can become difficult if they have a bad
experience with a new vet. They use the litter box and can
be walked with a leash and harnest and are of course very
attracted by water. They can
even take a bath or shower with you and love the pool and
(On some websites it says
that the F2 Savannah is a lot more "wild" than the
following generations... We have here living with us two F2
and never had any problem with them, they are very affectionate
and are not afraid of strangers. They are very sweet and we
can hold them. Of course it all depends of each character,
the way they are raised and their contact with people).
The F3 male can weight 14 to 24 lbs in average, is 14"
to 17" high (from shoulder to floor) and is 18"
to 21" long (without the tail). The F3 female can weight
12 to 15 lbs in average. They are extremely close to their
family and with children. Strangers won't bother them. You
can hold them and they will sleep with you. F3 Savannahs are
highly intelligent and very athletic. They can be walked with
a leash and harnest and are of course very attracted by water,
just like the F2. They are a magnificient mix between the
wild look and the soft and affectionate personnality of a
house cat. The Savannah is a tall cat, bigger than ordinary
cats. They need attention and have a lot of energy. They are
very active, intelligent and sweet cats.
F4 and F5 Savannah
The male can weight 14 to 20 lbs in average, is 13" to
16" high (from shoulder to floor) and is 16" to
19" long (without the tail). The female can weight 10
to 14 lbs in average. These 2 generations have very similar
personnalities to the F3. They like to be hold, pet and play
with you whenever you wish to. They are very intelligent and
energic. They are very sociable. Compared to normal house
cat, they are more athletic, energic and intelligent.

You can contact us if you wish to appear on our waiting list.
A 1000 $ deposit is required for a F2 kitten and 500 $ for
the other generations. After the reservation is made, you'll
receive a detailed contract with our warranties (for one year
after the deposit) and our recommandations for a good adaptation
of the kitten in his new home. You can also, in the reservation
process, specify some characteristics that you wish to get,
as well as the sex of the kitten. A 50% deposit must be made

Felins Exotiques. We only accept certified cheques for
the deposit, the reservation and the final payment who will
be made when the kitten leaves the cattery to go to your home.
All our kittens are ready to leave at the age of approx. 12
weeks old (3 months).
The price to adopt a Savannah kitten depends on the generation
you choose, the sex and the physical characteristics. All
our kittens must be neutered/spay. Claw removal is not recommended, but it's your choice
(claw removal and neutering/spaying are not included in the price). If you decide
to remove their claws (lazer), you have to do it at the same time
as neutering/spaying, so only one anestesia (isoflurane) which is better for the
kitten. The kitten will receive all the vaccins, will visit the veterinarian a minimum of 2 times for perfect health assurance and will receive a preventive dewormer treatment before leaving the catery (all this is included in the price). A registering
certificate of Canada Cat Association (CCA) or TICA will
also be delivered to you.
