Serengeti basic information

The Serengeti Cat is a large boned, long legged, domestic cat resembling an African wild cat called a Serval. There have been no servals used to create Serengeti Cats.

The Serengeti Cat is a clear yellow to gold cat with a pattern of distinct widely spaced black spots. Their stomach, ventral surfaces, whisker pads, chin, throat and jowls can be a little lighter in color. The coat is short, thick, and moderately soft. Since melanistic servals are known to exist. Serengeti Cats may also be cold gray with black spots, silver with black spots or solid black.

The ears of the Serengeti Cat are very large, rounded on the end, and placed directly on the top of the skull with black backs and a "eye-spot". Eyes can be gold to amber; green is acceptable. The conformation of the Serengeti Cat is more similar to the Oriental Shorthair. The obvious differences is that the Serengeti Cat is being bred for larger bone, longer legs and a much more upright and larger ear. Their posture is more upright with their heads held high on a long, thick neck. This conformation sets them apart form both the Bengal Cat, which is supposed to have a long, sinuous body and very small ears, and the Oriental Shorthair, which is supposed to have its ears set more on the side of the head and a have a more elegant, finer boned body. Also, "glitter", which has been introduced into the Bengal Cat from the "Indian Mau", is acceptable in the Serengeti Cat.
