Savannah behavior behavior

Temperamentally, Savannahs have been compared to dogs in their loyalty, and they will follow their owners around the house like a canine. They greet people with head-butts or sometimes pounces out of nowhere (many a guest entering a house with a Savannah have been pounced upon in the entry way!) They have a lot of energy and are social animals that do well with both cats and dogs.

Owners of Savannahs say that they are very impressed with the intelligence of this breed of cat. Savannahs have been known to get into all sorts of things; they often learn how to open doors, cupboards, and anyone buying a Savannah will definitely have to "Savannah-proof" the house to prevent their pet from getting into things it shouldn't! Also, many owners have trained their Savannahs to walk on a harness and do various tricks like fetching toys.

Water isn't a fear of the Savannah cat; they will jump right into the bathtub or shower with people sometimes, and get into pools and streams like their wild ancestors.

Vocally, like their serval parents and grandparents, Savannah cats normally "chirp" instead of meow.
