Lady is a 9-year-old female F1 Savannah cat surrendered to our sanctuary in February of 2022.

Last Hope Animal Rescue in Iowa reached out to us, asking if we could possibly provide a permanent home for an F1 Savannah cat. A breeder had surrendered her cats to their rescue.

An F1 Savannah is a hybrid mix of an African serval and a domestic cat. These cats are usually caught between 2 worlds. Not completely domestic, not completely wild, so who will take them in?

Learn more about why we do NOT support breeding, selling, or buying hybrid cats.

Thankfully, you help us say “yes” to cats, just like Lady, who are in need of a home.

Lady has severe dental disease and broken teeth, something common we see with the smaller hybrids. We’re very grateful for all the veterinary care and assessment the rescue did and that they reached out to us about her.

Life at the Sanctuary

Now that she’s here, we’ll be addressing Lady’s dental needs.

Since Lady seems to be such a confident girl, we decided to try a merger with some of our other Savannah cats. She moved into the bungalow habitat with Ty, Ledger and Lady in the Hybrid Haven section of the sanctuary.

Happy to report, she ventured out of her crate and never looked back! She’s curiously exploring and checking out all life has to offer here at her new home.

How You Can Help

Caring for a wild cat for life – even a small Savannah cat like Lady – 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 Lady’s sponsor parent?

Or even a one time donation toward her 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!
