What’s The Biggest Cat Breed – Answer

Yesterday (click here) I asked you all a question, if you knew what the biggest cat breed was! Of course I can’t leave you guys hanging, so here is the answer!

The answer is: The Savannah

Okay, I have to admit, this cat is a bit of a cheater. The Savannah is huge, but it’s a domestic hybrid cat with a wild background. It happened when they started crossing a Siamese with a wild African Serval. Since 2001 the Savannah is accepted as an official breed and it’s most likely one of the largest domestic cats around. In 1986 the first Savannah was born in the United States. The Savannah can grow the size of a good-sized dog. They are known to be gentle and loyal companions, but they can be a bit… “wild”. Most Savannah’s also like water and are very playful.

Because the Savannah is partly wild, the cat is illegal in some states in America. It’s also forbidden to import the cat to Australia.

Did you clicked the right answer yesterday?

    What did I win for finding the correct answer? I knew because I studied well… hum… I read your post about this cat before.

    I would guess this cat falls under the definition of “exotic animal”, making it illegal to import or own such a cat in Canada — and so is the case for the Serval, making it impossible to produce them locally.

    When I can afford to take care of a big cat, I’d rather settle for a Lynx… though no more legal to own :s

      You win… nothing! :P
      I’m not a big fan of wild cats actually. They belong in the wild. Domestic cats are domestic.

    What a beautiful cat. We got the wrong answer. We thought it was the Maine Coon. Thanks for increasing our cat knowledge. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
