Savannah Breed Profile

according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savannah_(cat)


Laws governing ownership of Savannah cats in the United States vary according to state. Most notably, hybrid cats—defined as a domestic / wild species' cross—such as the Savannah are illegal to own as pets in the state of New York as of 2005. The majority of states, however, follow federal and USDA code, which define wild / domesticated Hybrid crosses as domesticated.

Savannahs more than 5 generations from the Serval are allowed to be owned in NY state, but not in the city of New York.
