Purchasing A Kitten

When you adopt a Savannah kitten from Exotic Tails, they come with:

  • TICA (The International Cat Association) & CCA (Canadian Cat Association) Registration
  • Vaccinations x2-3
  • Deworming x2-4
  • Microchip
  • Vet records including fecal exam showing the kitten is free of parasites
  • Copy of parental bloodwork showing the family is FeLV and FIV negative
  • 1 Year Written Health Guarantee
  • 6 Weeks free pet insurance
  • Lifetime breeder support
  • Savannah Kitten Starter Kit (samples of premium food, blanket that smells like mom, favourite toys, bowls, new litter box & scoop, recommendations, etc.)

Pet Savannah kittens are spayed/neutered prior to leaving. Early spays/neuters are not only safe, but young kittens heal at twice the speed. Kittens come home alert, energetic and acting like nothing happened! Early altering also increases the length of growth time and thus size of kittens.

Please inquire about breeding rights. Only the highest quality kittens we believe will add good traits to the Savannah gene pool will be considered for approved breeding programs. Breeder kittens come with a Fertility Guarantee and are PCR tested before leaving. We also do mentor serious new breeders and are part of both the Savannah Breed Section and the Savannah Breed Mentors groups. Any inquiring breeder needs to join the above groups to prove they are serious about progressing the breed.

Kittens go to approved homes only. For more information, contact us at info@exotictails.ca.

Pricing

Savannah kitten prices vary depending on filial generation (how close kittens are to their African Serval ancestry or approximate % of Serval), if they are male or female, whether they are going to a pet or breeder home, and for their overall quality (how closely a Savanna kitten resembles their Serval ancestry, conformation, markings, size, overall type, etc.).

Below are some estimated price ranges. The higher prices are reserved for breeder/show quality kittens. Kittens can also sometimes be priced above or below the given range.

F5 mom and kitten

F1 $8500-15000 (we do not produce F1s at this time)
F2 $5500-9000
F3 $3500-5000
F4 $1800-3500
F5-F7 $1000-4500*
SBT $1000-4500**

*F5s are the first consistently fertile generation for Savannah Cat males. Quality males will be priced on the higher price end and get first pick by registered Savannah breeders.

**Our SBTs are usually bred in the F4, F5, and F6 generation and will be priced accordingly.

Exotic Tails is a legally registered operation and is by law required to charge tax. Savannah kittens purchased within Canada are subject to GST or HST (depending on province). Kittens sold to the U.S or internationally are not subject to said taxes. We ship Worldwide.

Deposits

A non-refundable deposit of 50% of the purchase price is required to hold any chosen Exotic Tails Savannah kitten. We accept money orders / cashier’s cheques, email money transfers (EMT), PayPal (3.5% fee), bank wire transfers, and good old-fashioned cash. Deposits are transferable to other Savannah kittens before 10 weeks of age, but are not refundable. A deposit is a service fee you place to have us take a kitten off of the market, send you kitten updates, and care for your future kitten (feeding, vaccinations, spay/neuter), etc. When a potential owner changes their mind in the last moment, not only is it inconvenient, but older kittens have a harder time finding new homes!

We now also accept a small handful of pre-birth deposits for serious inquirers looking to secure their place in line for particular Savannah kittens. Pre-birth deposits are $300.00 and are refundable if we do not produce what you’re looking for, and are transferable to other kittens/litters. Deposits towards a place in line are on a “first come first served” basis. When kittens from the reserved litter are of 6 weeks of age, 50% of the chosen kitten’s cost, minus the $300.00, will need to be given or you lose your place in line. We reserve the right to have first pick of any of our litters to hold back for our breeding program.

We also do keep complimentary Savannah kitten email lists and are happy to inform people of upcoming litters – no deposit necessary.
