Does anyone have experience with these kinds of exotic cats? For those that don't know, they're wild cats like the African Serval or Asian Leopard Cat crossed with domesticated housecats. They look and act like wild cats (so I hear), but don't need chunks of raw meat or whatever.

So does anyone have one?

And would they work well with a large dog? Golden Retriever, American Bulldog, b***** dogs.

not trying to be an ass, but maybe you should find out what he was talking about before you make a stupid comment like that.... he said "Savannah/Bengal Cats" not tiger, or lion...

i just looked it up so i could make an informed comment, and my informed comment is that those things are pretty sweet looking.....

one of my friends has one and he is a great cat--very protective of his master, even walks on a leash!! He doesn't have any other pets but when his ex g/f was still living with him till she got her own place , the cat peed on her shoes, her bed becasue he didn't like her and could sense that my friend didn't like his ex anymore either LOL I thought it was a riot!! :D

That cat looks cool.

My friend who lives out near the mountains got himself a baby bobcat. He hand fed it with a bottle and all that fun stuff, and it was really cute (And I'm not a guy who usually calls things "cute", LOL) but it was like a super playfull kitten. Well now the thing is full grown, and it's the single coolest pet I've ever seen. It surprizingly gets along well with his dogs. The bobcat has scatched the dogs a couple times when they were both young, and it got too aggressive when "playing". The dogs are scared to death of the thing though, and I gotta admit when you feel how strong it is, i'm pretty scared of it too.

But I think those savannah cats looks like they'd be playfull and different like the bobcat, but it wouldn't be nearly as huge or scary for the dogs.

My post was a little pointless, I just enjoy talking about that bobcat because it's so cool :D

Depends on the cat and dog weather they will get along. My Bengal gets along with my sisters Weimaraner after a little calming period. Bengal’s don't act wild they tend to act more like young cats most of their life. Being playful and active, mine growls at the door when people knock on it, till it opens then he hides for a minute and comes out to see who it is.



Here is a link to the place I got my bengal. She also breeds savannah cats and has pictures of them both.

Why don't you go to a shelter and get a cat that someone didn't want. You'd be saving tons of $$ and you'll also be saving a life! :D :D

I saw a pair of them in virgina city a couple of years ago. They are amazing looking if you see them in person. Their fur feels like chinchilla, super smooth, (they actually have pelts which is a little different from what regular house cats have). I'm sure they shed a lot less than a regular cat does (wish my tomcat would shed a a lot less than he does). I'm still thinking about getting one, but they aren't cheap, probably $500 to $800 bucks. My tomcat I let outside all the time and it doesn't bother me, but I think with one of those I would be pretty tempted to keep him indoors all the time. They're plenty of websites out there that deal with bengal cats. I'm sure you can get all the info you need by googling...
