Mouser Savannah Cat


Male Savannah Cat
Date of Birth: 1/1/2004
Date of Rescue: 9/8/2019

Mouser is a male Savannah cat born in 2004. He arrived here in 2019 with three bobcats from a failed California facility called the Wildlife Waystation. We are told he was used for handling by the public. This is a practice we oppose because it is not a good life for the cats and sends the wrong message to the public.

What made it possible to use him in this way is that he has an unusually social personality.  On the drive from California he loved to “make biscuits” in view of his rescuers. He also quickly learned on the trip that stopping for gas or to change drivers meant he got treats and he eagerly looked for them.

Once here at Big Cat Rescue we accidentally discovered that he loves to be sung to.  He comes over, rubs the fence, and listens intently.

It is extremely rare for a Savannah cat to be so friendly. The problem with letting the public handle a cat like this is that it encourages people to buy one as a pet. In the vast majority of cases, when the cats mature at around three years old they start to spray and bite and are no longer wanted.

    There is no Savannah sponsorship option. And can you please let us just select the cats we want to sponsor in a dropdown instead of asking us to fill something in and mail it back? It’s just so much easier and quicker to do. Saves paper and time and money from mailing things here and there,
