The Serengeti Cat Breed

Serengetis are playful and, in the right home, make great pets!

The Serengeti cat breed is a very unique looking cat with its wildcat-like appearance. They were created during the early 1990s in California by crossing a Bengal cat with an Oriental Shorthair cat and are now recognized by the International Cat Association. The Serengeti breed was created to look similar to the African Serval, but without using any wildcat blood. These cats are defined by their appearance with a spotted coat, long legs, and large ears. Their coat colours are yellow to gold with a distinctive pattern of widely-spaced black spots. Males can weigh up to 15 pounds and female Serengeti cats weigh between 8 to 12 pounds.

Serengeti cats are very intelligent, playful, and loyal. This cat's short, silky coat requires little grooming and they make a great family pet. These cats are friendly and get along with other pets if properly introduced. They are active and love to climb and chase toys. Serengeti cats enjoy running through the house at top speed. They like to perch on high heights such as furniture or climbing trees. During its lifetime, a house pet can face one or two major healthcare crises and the Serengeti breed is not immune to this. Because they are at risk of accidents and health problems, it is wise to consider a regular health regimen for this cat. The Serengeti cat would benefit from regular veterinary examinations and wellness care such as vaccines, flea preventives, and dental cleanings.
With a balanced diet and regular health care, the Serengeti will live a long and happy life and make a great family pet.
