The negatives of owning a serval!
Servals can develop timid and shy behavior around strangers. The males can get extremely large up to 50 lbs! You should own your home before you comit to buying a serval , as they are not legal to own in many states and cant easily be rehomed - as they will be aggresive in their new home with new owners, they will only be loving to the family that raised them / or as long as the family that raised them is around. For example if you leave town and need someone to feed your big cat - they will likely be agressive ! Servals are also known to spray all over the house / outdoor enclosures and early neutering is highly recommended. If these things scare you, we recommend looking at a F1 Savannah from F1savannahkittens.com
The positives of owning a serval!
Servals unlike other cats even F1s have the most unique and loving personality that cant be mirrored even in the first generation. They are extremely bonded to their owners; playful and funny! They love to follow you in the shower , swim , goof around , groom you , follow you everywhere and they always prefer to sleep with you then alone. There is truly no connection like a connection to a african serval cat. But please, raise them correctly ! Or be ready to face a nightmare.
