Savannah Kittens care
Savannah Kitten Tips:
We will send a supply of Savannah kitten food to get you started. We don't want an immediate change in food as it will upset the kitten's stomach. Your welcome to change the food but please do it slowly and make sure you are feeding a good food.
We feed an all natural diet here. The Savannah kittens and cats do great on this diet. They are Solid Gold, Blue Buffalo and Taste of the wild and can be purchased at either petco, pet supply plus or you can have it shipped in from Amazon or Petflow (my favorite as it is free shipping!) They send my order 1 time every 2 weeks. I realize these foods are very expensive BUT they do very well on them. We never have an issue with stools or vomiting. They adjust well moving from 1 to another if you want to offer a variety. Please keep in mind your Savannah cat can and will consume about 2 large cans a day along with their dry kibble. It's a cost factor to consider. Once in a while we do feed raw chicken, however we feed frozen. We understand they eat raw meat in the wild, however in the wild it doesn't go through some processing plant that could pick up bateria.
We also like to give Plantaeris which is a dietary supplement. It keeps their tummy in order. It is also all natural. Again, can be a little expensive but well worth the money.
This is our Savannah Cat playroom:
It has everything a kitten would want to play on in it. The room is filled with wonderful entertaining toys. I even have it complete with a TV and Satelite for them to watch animal planet. Ok, the TV is really for me ;) I have only shown a few of their toys I use to spoil them with before you get them. They spend their time having as much fun as possible, not to mention I enjoy my time with them too. Not shown is an Irobot Roomba they seem to really enjoy riding on an chasing around. I do this to expose them to the weird noises of everyday life. The kittens are always kept safe, secure and well adjusted.
Bringing home new Savannah kittens:
1) When bringing a new Savannah kitten home, don't rush it out of the crate. Give the Savannah kitten time to venture out on it's own. I suggest keeping the savannah kitten in a room by itself for a period of time.
2) Don't give the Savannah kitten full run of the house at first. He is young, doesn't know your house and will get lost. This causes stress and can make the savannah kitten sick.
3) Savannah kittens don't always remember to eat. Make sure you show them the food dish often.
4) Remember to show them the litter box too.
5) Savannah Kittens have sharp nails and can scratch and cut children (and adults) keep the nails trimmed. Allow them a scratching post at all times.
6) Try to keep the Savannah kitten on the same food it was on prior to coming to live with you. At least for a few days. I have included links to easily get your food.
7) Have plenty of toys available. They will out last you in playing time so make sure they have something to do while your not playing.
8) I allow lazer lights, but limited. I never allow my Savannah kittens to run to the point of panting or exhaustion.
9) Remember they love toilet paper. Keep your toilet paper locked up oh and you might want to hide your tooth brushes too.
10) Changing homes can be very stressful. Watch closely for your kitten to show signs of stress. Not eating, not drinking and not being active. Many times the litter box will be the first sign of trouble. Make sure you watch your litter box closely. If your worried call the veterinarian. It's better to be safe than sorry. They can give you additional tips.
11) Savannahs love to jump, especially your F1 and F2 savannah cats. Be prepared for that. They can go straight up about 8 feet and many times love to ride on your shoulders. Or it on the top of your doors. Article worth reading.
12) Never yell, scream or slap your kitten. They are so much smaller than you and have no way to defend theirselves. please do not make the kitten feel threatened in any way. They are there simply to love you and don't always understand our ways of life. Savannah cats don't always back down if you become abusive with them. You will teach them nothing that way.
13) Should you ever decide you can not take care of the kitten, please call us day or night and we will help make arrangements to get the kitten back to us. We have made a commitment to these kittens for life. We will always be here for them in the event you can not care for them. Not to mention your under contract to send the kitten home to us and we will fight to enforce that contract.
14) Savannah Cats love to chew. Depending on your generation you will need to watch out for the types of toys you give them. Many normal cat toys can be chewed into pieces by your savannah cats. I have seen Savannah cats get toys stuck in their throats, I have seen Savannah cats get blockages from eating things they should have.
15) Do not hesitate to phone me if you have any questions. Even if you may think they are silly. To me the only silly question is the one no one took the time to ask.
Our kittens are brought into the world knowing we will take the best care of them as possible. We know there are families who want that special kitten and will give it a forever home. Our animals are the pride and joy of our lives. They breathe, have a heartbeat and feel just as you and I feel. Imagine the world without animals. It would be a very cold place. Take care of the kitten and any other animal you have, they are counting on us. :)
