Diablo is a savannah cat, which is a hybrid between a domestic cat and an African serval.

 

 

Diablo-Hybrid_7409040854620533695_oThis cross-breeding is not only cruel to the animals involved but also produces confused offspring that can not figure out how to be a house pet. Diablo is very unfriendly and has inherited every bit of a serval’s hissy personality. He is also food-aggressive and turns into a dangerous wildcat at feeding time. Diablo marks his territory including his new toys, enrichment, his trees, and dens by spraying them. All of these nasty habits, just for a pretty coat pattern, don’t seem like a wise trade-off.

Because his owners discarded him for being who he was, Diablo will live out the remainder of his life in a cage. While this is sad, at least he will be free to be the wild animal that he is.

Here at Big Cat Rescue Diablo is very loved however all of his caregivers respect his wild side and do not try to treat him like a pet, something he seems to greatly appreciate.  He loves his suite of cages and all the foliage provided for him to hide in.  He loves lounging on his platform sniffing the gentle breezes coming off Tiger Lake.

He works diligently keeping all of his toys "well-marked!" He enjoys treats and spying on his neighbors.

    I didnt know that sad thing about savannah cats. I thought it was a good way to have a pet similar to a wild cat. Why I didnt know this if I am following BigCat Rescue for a long time? …well luckly is not easy to buy this cats in Chile, so I havent owned one of them yet. A proof that I will not stop learning about bigcats!

    Uneducated owners, make uneducated decisions. Banning an animal because some people don't do their homework first, is not fair to a population that not only loves, but cares for their own, and discarded cats by selfish people. I don't live in California, but it will be a cold day in hell when someone comes onto my property to take something that WAS legal, and tries to take them away. While I support Big Cat Rescue and your mission, this one I don't support, so feel free to block or delete me if my opinion doesn't coincide with the bandwagon you want everyone to be on.

    A ban would not result in anyone coming and taking your cat. That is the ridiculous propaganda promoted by the breeders. Bans always grandfather in the animals you have but just stop the breeding and buying of more.

    Terri, After watching the vid I think I agree more with you than BCR assessment. At the end the vid states that she/he had adopted a human. I think you will agree however with the "pee on everything" statement. You seem to have had good luck with your Savannahs but I don't know that your good fortune and others bad luck make this a good choice of a pet. Just my opinion. I am sure they bring much joy and entertainment to you and your family.

    Ashley Bolles Thank you for your honest opinion about your savannah cat experience.
    To be able to breed those cats, is needed some servals in captivity. I don't like that.
    Different species in the wild don't reproduce, so force 2 cats to mate against their own natural behaviour, is not a good thing to do, in my personal opinion.
    Also I think it could be very risky to adopt a savannah cat as a kitten because it could be very difficult to predict if he inherited the aggressive behavior, which may express in adulthood.
