DIVISIONS:

Division.
COLORS:
Black, Brown (Black) Spotted
Tabby, Black Silver Spotted Tabby and Black
Smoke.
PERMISSIBLE OUTCROSSES
: None
HEAD:
Shape
: The face forms an equilateral
triangle: the triangle is formed by the brow
line over the eyes; and the sides follow down
the jaw bone with a rounded finish at the
muzzle. Above this triangle the forehead and
ears form a rectangle from the brow line to
the tops of the ears. The head is small in
proportion to the body.
Ears
: Ears are remarkably large and
high on the head. They are wide with a deep
base. They should be very upright and have
rounded tops. The outside base of the ear
should start no lower on the head than the
height of the eyes, but may be set higher.
The inside base of the ears is set close at the
top of the head; ideally, a vertical line can be
drawn from the inner corner of the eye up to
the inner base of the ear. Ear furnishings
may be present; pronounced ocelli are
desirable.
Eyes
: Medium sized and set underneath
a slightly hooded brow. The top of the eye
resembles a boomerang set at the exact
angle so that the corner of the eye slopes
down the line of the nose. The bottom half of
the eye has an almond shape. The eyes are
moderately deep set, low on the forehead,
and at least one eye width apart. Tear stain
markings are present along and between the
eye and the nose. All eye colors are allowed
and are independent of coat color.
Chin
: From the frontal view the chin
tapers to follow the triangle of the head. In
profile, the nose is slightly protruding so that
the angle from the nose to the chin slants
back, which may cause the chin to appear
recessed
Muzzle
: The muzzle is tapered with no
break. It falls within the bottom portion of the
facial triangle that runs from the brow to the
point of the chin. Whisker pads are not
pronounced
Profile
: The forehead is a straight to
slightly convex curve from the top of the head
to the ridge just above the eye where there is
a slight change of direction and a straight to
very-slight concave curve from that ridge to
the tip of the nose. In profile, the face also
forms a triangle from the top of the eye to the
tip of the nose, turning to follow the jaw line
and back up to the eye.
Nose
: Viewing from the front, the nose
is wide across the top with low set nostrils. In
profile, there is a slight downward turn at the
end, giving a rounded appearance. Nose
leather is slightly convex and wraps up over
the nose.
Neck
: Long and lean.
BODY:
Torso
: The torso is long, lean and well-
muscled with a full deep rib cage, prominent
shoulder blades, a slight, but not extreme,
tuck-up and a rounded rump. The hip and
thigh are full and long and somewhat heavy
in proportion to the rest of the body.
Legs
: Longer than average, well
muscled, without appearing heavy or overly
delicate. Back legs are slightly longer than
the front legs.
Feet
: Oval, medium in size.
Corrected 6/1/2013
Savannah Breed Standard, 05/01/2012
Tail:
Medium to thick in width. Medium in
length, ending between the hock and just
above ground level when standing with
preferred length just below the hock. Tail
should taper slightly to a blunt end. Whippy
tails are not desired.
Boning
: Medium boning with density
and strength.
Musculature
: Firm, well-developed, yet
smooth.
COAT:
Short to medium in length with good
substance and a slightly coarse feel to it.
Coarser guard hairs cover a softer
undercoat; the spots have a notably softer
texture than the guard hairs. The coat is not
inordinately dense and lies relatively flat
against the body.
COLORS:
Black, brown (black) spotted
tabby, black silver spotted tabby, black
smoke. No preference is given to ground
color on the brown (black) spotted tabby.
Bold, solid markings are preferred on all
tabbies. In any variation the lips are black,
and the tear duct lines are prominent. On the
spotted Savannahs the nose leather can be
pink to brick red surrounded by liner, solid
black, or black with a pink to brick center
stripe. In black Savannahs, the nose leather
must be solid black. Paw pads in either color
variation should be deep charcoal or
brownish black.
PATTERN
: SPOTTED PATTERN ONLY.
The spotted Savannah pattern is made up of
bold, solid dark-brown to black spots, which
can be round, oval, or elongated. A series of
parallel stripes, from the back of the head to
just over the shoulder blades, fan out slightly
over the back and the spotting pattern follows
the line of the stripes from the shoulders
continuing the length of the body. Smaller
spots will be found on the legs and feet as
well as on the face. In the black Savannah
ghost spotting may occur. A visible spotting
pattern on the smoke Savannah is preferred.
In all divisions, any visible pattern must be
spotted.
TEMPERAMENT
: The ideal Savannah is to
be a confident, alert, curious and friendly cat.
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
: The overall
impression of the Savannah is a tall lean
graceful cat with striking dark spots and other
bold markings, on a background color of any
shade of brown, silver, black or black smoke.
The Savannah cat is a domestic breed which
closely resembles its ancestral source the
African Serval, but is smaller in stature.
Affectionate and outgoing, with exceptionally
long neck, legs, and tall ears, as well as a
medium length tail, the Savannah is both
unusual and beautiful. The Savannah is also
an exceptionally graceful, well-balanced cat
with striking color and pattern.
ALLOWANCES
: Females proportionately
smaller than males
PENALIZE
: Rosettes. Spots that are any
color other than dark brown to black. Any
distinct locket on the neck, chest, abdomen
or any other area not provided for in the
standard. Vertically aligned spots or mackerel
tabby type stripes. Cobby body. Small ears.
DISQUALIFY (DQ)
: Extra toes.
Temperament must be unchallenging; any sign
of definite challenge shall disqualify. The cat
may exhibit fear, seek to flee, or generally
complain aloud but may not threaten to harm.
