Have you ever seen a Serval before (Leptailurius serval), those cute and large eared African cats. If you ever had a chance to have one as a pet wouldn't you want to try in raising one?
Unfortunately those cats are wild and you wouldnt actually find one in your local petshop or cattery right? Well there is good news for those wild cat enthusiats out there. Karen Sausman of Kingsmark Cattery in California developed a breed of cat that closely resembles a cute Serval.
They are called Serengeti cats, named after an African country that has Servals running all over the place. But would you believe that these cats were not bred from Servals at all. They do have wild ancestors but the breed was developed from domesticated and established breeds but still having that wild and mishcievious Serval look.
These spotted and stripped cats called the Serengeti was developed from the Spotted Bengals and the Long eared Oriental cats which explains the closeness in looks with a Serval but because of its domesticated origins it is very tamed and has a nice disposition.
