Mier is a young female Savannah cat – a relatively new breed not even recognised as a domesticated breed in the UK.
Savannahs originated from a planned breeding between a male Siamese cat & an African serval – a medium sized wild cat, since the first pairing savannahs have been bred with other savannahs to produce a remarkable looking cat which is significantly distinct in its appearance & behaviour but is as docile as any other well known domesticated breed. With extremely characteristic wild cat markings & very distinctive build the Savannah is usually significantly larger than other domesticated breeds, although much smaller than a serval.
Savannahs can be kept without any licensing requirements attributable to none domesticated breeds they are very alert, vocal & have been compared closer to dogs in their loyalty to their handler & their adaptability to training.
Mier will hopefully be ready to start encounter work in the very near future.
