IMG_2050Andre is a male Savannah cat who arrived at The Wildcat Sanctuary in 2016. He was nine years old at the time.

The Animal Humane Society reached out to see if we could provide a home for Andre. His owner had recently passed away, and Andre had been surrendered by the family. 

He was described as a very shy cat who would run when the family approached.  After assessing his behavior, the humane society knew Andre needed a special home that understood all of his needs.

Life at the Sanctuary

We knew we could provide the life Andre needed; his life had been turned upside down. He underwent an intake exam and was found to be very healthy.

Andre needed some reassurance at first.  He was shy but settled in more and more each day. It was such a great day when we were able to merge him with other hybrids in the Hybrid Haven section of the sanctuary.

He lives with Bengal cats Harley and Jewel and couldn’t be happier now. He and Harley have become the dynamic duo.

Jewel really prefers to be more on her own. The great thing about Andre and Harley is they respect Jewel’s more introverted personality. They let her be independent while they hang out together more. It’s been a great match.

Andre is a huge fan of catnip and catnip toys! As the caretakers say, he’s like white on rice with it, rubbing all over it. He’s a very jovial little guy to watch.

Once again, it just proves that, given the right environment, these hybrid cats can certainly flourish. Thank goodness we’re able to be here for them!

How You Can Help

Caring for a wild cat for life – even a small Savannah cat like Andre – can be very expensive. Hybrids usually come to us with genetic and/or medical issues due to their breeding.

Our sponsorship program helps support the cats’ care costs and allows you to form a special bond with them. Would you consider being Andre’s sponsor parent?

Or even a one time donation toward his care would be so appreciated. It’s easy to do using the buttons at the top of this page.

Thank you for caring about the little wild ones, too!
