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. You know, that is nice of you to offer that, but what experience and living conditions do you have that would make you think that savannah cares how willing you are? He would again have to be acclimated and be very upset with a new owner especially with behavior problems of a foster child. Trust me. It's not fair to the cat.

  2. Breeders that sell and buy these cats don't care about them at all. It's all about money and status. I agree about hybrid cats like these savannahs, bengals, servals that are bred with domestic cats and re named "Savannahs" I'm definitely not an expert in this field, but I learned from experience and research that these hybrid cats make bad pets. Being show cats is even worse. I purchased two Bengal cats 2 years ago. They were only 11 mo. old. I only took them because I have a cat habitat for my personal cats. I soon found out it was a mistake and why. They only cost me 40 dollars for both from a animal shelter that a couple left them because of there high energy and they lived in a trailer home. I wished I never took them but I would rather have them than they live in a shelter with domestic cats. It's difficult to raise hybrid cats with domestic cats unless your with them every day, which I am. They are very demanding and will destroy your home if left alone to long without someone there to care for them. They have a diet other than cat food. It's expensive and they are picky eaters. It's not wise to purchase a Bengal or Savannah and keep them penned in a house all day. They spray a lot and cause the other cats to do the same. They all stay outside now in there own little huts I built for them in the habitat. They are happy now and free to roam around in a secure area of a half acre. It's a miniature jungle I call "Little Cat Africa" Check it out on utube. I use my own money to feed, groom and make vet visits when needed. I'm not a cat rescue and limited on what I have. They are all fixed and I try to be attentive to all of them. It is a lot of work and dedication. In the summer when it is pretty hot they are allowed to come inside a separate room to stay cool and relax.
