Coco and Cine, two 5-year-old F1 Savannah Cats, arrived at our sanctuary in the summer 2023.
Born in 2018, they were surrendered to a sanctuary in 2021 for being too much for the owner’s small apartment. The sanctuary normally didn’t accept hybrid cats, but wanted to make sure Coco and Cine were safe. They provided them a great home until they could find permanent placement at a sanctuary that specialized in small hybrid cats.
Our sanctuary has been full for quite some time. But in 2022, we agreed to take these Savannah cats in during the coming summer of 2023. We assumed we’d have more open hybrid space then.
Unfortunately, that’s not the case. The hybrid requests keep coming, our program is full and there’s a waiting list. But we wanted to stay true to our commitment to Coco and Cine so we brought them to our sanctuary in the summer of 2023 as promised.
Life at the Sanctuary
They’re enjoying indoor and outdoor space in our quarantine area. And once they’re settled in, we ‘ll determine where they can be merged in with other cats of their own kind.
Cine and Coco have distinctly different personalities. Cine, the male, is fun-loving and playful. He really likes to show off for his caretakers and is quite social. Coco, the female, is definitely in charge and likes to have her own space. She’s quick to hiss and stomp when Coco gets too close. She isn’t timid at all, just prefers to be queen of her castle.
We’re happy we can provide them a forever home to stretch their wild side. But we continue to be saddened hybrids are being bred when so many are surrendered for urinating outside their litter boxes and being destructive.
