Savannah Cats and Bengal Cats Make Bad Pets

Savannah Cats and Bengal Cats Make Bad Pets

*Why do Hybrid Breeders hate this video?

BCR is trying to educate the public before they pay $3,000+ for a cat. Breeders think they might lose money if people hear another view point. In our time, we have seen a number of unwanted hybrids.

Breeding down a wild cat with a domestic ruins any chance of the wild genes to continue on and save the species.(Seen with the loss of interest in the wild Amur Leopard Cat to the hybrid Bengal cat)

Let alone, why make another desinger cat when millions of domestics are put to sleep each year.

Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Fl. provides a permanent home to over 140 exotic cats from Hybrids to Lions. WE DO realize people may love their pet hybrids (we see the videos here on You Tube), but it puts a demand on breeders getting servals and other smaller exotics to keep up with the exotic pet market, a market we are against.

Thanks for watching.


  1. If this guy knew ANYTHING about cat fancy/cat breeders, he'd know that most Savannah cats or Bengal cats that are bred close to their wild blood are generally kept for breeding only. This is considered F1 to F3 or F4 usually. Most breeders WILL NOT sell a close feral-blooded cat, especially a savannah, to a pet owner unless they are mostly domestic in their blood. The cats he's dealing with, are cats that shouldn't have been sold for pets.

  2. I have an F6 Savannah, and I wish I had never brought him home. They do not make good house pets. They never nap, they don't listen, and they get into everything. They will break things, they will tear into any food you leave out, and they will wake you up in the middle of the night. I would highly recommend any other cat, unless you plan on letting the Savannah live outside. Mine is sweet, don't get me wrong, but he is a huge pain in the butt. Buyer beware.

    • You should have known that these cats are athletic and very naughty from time to time. If you don’t want him, I will take him and give him a forever home. These cats can provide lots of love but are also a handful. But to me that’s the fun part.

    • I have an Ocicat that does similar behaviors that you’re describing. But I found that a lot of it was due to boredom. Make sure you have plenty of things to play with. These don’t have to be expensive either. Empty boxes with cut out holes will entertain a cat for hours, add tissue paper and it will entertain you for hours, sprinkle in some cat nip, family entertainment. :). A good diet of moist food daily & some good, vet recommended dry food in the bowl over night for the “munchies” so they will not tear open things because they are hungry. Cheaper dry cat foods have less protein, which does not stick around very long, resulting in hunger and possibly diabetes on down the road. Set aside play time with your furbaby an hour before bed, use a red light, or toy on a string that you’ve made and play for about 10 to 15 minutes or until kitty has lost interest. Once kitty is tired every evening, you both may get a little better rest. :). Btw, my boy is 11 this year, diabetic since age 6, and still loves to play. :). Best of Luck!!

    • You rock Danielle. I love people that rescue cats.

  3. I agree, and wish they wouldn't take more servals as well. I don't own a savannah cat myself, but have always wanted to since I discovered the breed. I think the problem is that people want F1s and Savannah's that are more closely related to their serval descendants. I hope to own an F5 someday which wouldn't be directly from a serval. All domestic cats at one point came from a wild cat but it's not as though breeders still seek out that wild descendant to produce more kittens. It's time to get away from servals too, and stick to breeding Savannahs with Savannahs. Other people can feel free to disagree but this is my opinion.
