Actual Excerpt from The Preface of the Book

Over a dozen years ago I wrote the first version of this Savannah Cat Book.  In part, it was to assist the 18 breeders who were working on the development of the breed and who needed a basis for writing the standard first accepted for our breed.  Another reason; a reference for the new breeders attracted to the breed.  From the beginning, the Savannah has been overwhelmingly popular and the book served to help many in those formative years. Year after year, since we first gained registration status, the breed has made many strides and the original was obsolete because when written we only had early generation cats and a handful of F4’s.  More recently, several breeders asked for the book and I have been working on the update for quite a while...... .....Help came from many resources.  Each picture in the book was hand-picked in order to show  good examples of the breed; pictures of the original Savannahs; those of the current cats who have won high awards in the show rings; pictures of Savannahs in family and fun homes and finally those Savannahs who do not meet the breed standard.  All of those who provided pictures are noted with those pictures to acknowledge their contribution.... .....I give you, the reader, “The Savannah Cat Book.”  I hope it is an enjoyable and enlightening journey through the book.
