Full Answer

Savannah cats were created in 1986 through the breeding of a male serval to a female Siamese cat, a combination not previously seen in nature. The estimated amount of serval genetics present determines their F-class designation. F1s are the offspring of a direct pairing of serval and domestic cat and are at least 50 percent serval.
