Servals DO NOT MAKE GOOD PETS. They Require much more attention devotion responsibility time and money than any domestic pet.
INFO: Servals are found throughout the savannahs of Africa, where the grass is tall. The cat's long legs allow it to walk easily through the vegetation. His large ears help him to locate his favorite prey - the small rodents hiding in the grass.
Servals catch their prey by leaping and landing on their victims with both front paws. Servals can jump up to 10 feet in the air and catch a bird in flight. They are also good swimmers, tree climbers, and exceptionally great runners.
A Serval is solitary by nature and will roam up to 4 square miles which it claims as its own territory. ALL Servals (male and female) SPRAY to mark their territory wether they are altered or not.
A Serval is a wild animal and doesn't make a good pet. The wild cat will live up to 20 years old and needs zoo-like outside/inside facilities with a large enough exercise area to run, a pool in which to swim and dive, and an area with lots of climbing possibilities. Servals will escape from anything that is not totally secure and are unlikely to return once having escaped. Servals are solitary by nature and like to travel many miles when hunting. They require a special all natural RAW diet with vitamin supplements and special health care.
Even if hand-raised and tamed, a Serval will never be a "lap cat".
Servals are only legal in 4 States and STILL require a permit and have guidelines for the size and type of cage that they need. Check with your state and local authorities.
