We've Been Busy

Hey all!

Sorry it's been a few weeks since I posted last. I have been working on adding our new products to our webpage! They are pretty cool, and we are super excited about them. I didn't really quite realize all the work and effort that goes into adding all of this but its finally done!!! I am not really a computer whiz, so I am pretty proud that I did most of this on my own! Ha Ha. We have a lot of things up our sleeves that we plan for the future so there is more to come! 

See Our Products

You can click the button to the right to check out all the new stuff. I will explain a little about them, so you can get a good idea of what we have to offer. 

First Off, We Have The Cat Collars

The cat collars are extremely neat as they come with a matching bracelet for you. They feature the breakaway collar and are made with animal friendly vegan leather with gold clasps. They come in a variety of colors and patterns which we will be adding more as soon as we get them in stock. We also have a variety of dog collars if you all are interested just let us know by sending me an email at products@a1savannahs.com. I would be happy to show you what we can get. Also, if and when you buy the collars please send us photos of you and your matching kitty! We would like to have a client photo gallery of our products in use.

Second, We Have The Super-Duper Sturdy Cat Furniture 

Okay, so not to brag or anything but this stuff is really cool. Since our Savannah's are pretty large compared to most cats, it's hard to find shelves that accommodate their size and weight. When I found out about these shelves and hammocks I was instantly in love. Most of them can hold up to 65 pounds or more. They have a multitude of variations and you can choose your own stain and fabric color to match your house. Pretty Snazzy! There are products of all price ranges and the good thing about this furniture is that you can always add-on and make your own design. It is elevated off of the ground, so it can also be a safe space for cats that have dog or kid friends. You can add feeders as well as planter boxes which I think is the coolest thing ever, especially for indoor cats. In a later blog post I will let you all know what plants are safe for your cats to nibble on. 

Third And Final Note

We are planning on adding to this collection of products in the near future. We already have some ideas and things in progress that we can't wait to share with all our cat families!

Let us know how you like our stuff so far or have any questions. We would be more than happy to help!

Until our next cat convo

A Little Background

Hey all of our fellow cat lovers! 

a1 savannahs intro blog post selfie

I am Amanda Engster owner of A1 Savannahs along with my husband Martin. I know most of you do not know a lot about us as we have kept pretty to ourselves since owning A1 Savannahs. I have finally decided to venture out and start a blog about our fun, insane, stressful, amazing, and blessed life as Savannah Cat Breeders. 

I am 28 years young, have a very supportive and loving husband, Martin (But we all know my first love was COFFEE!!) and have a pretty amazing son named Max. We live in the middle of nowhere Oklahoma on our small ranch but it is nice and quiet and we really enjoy it here. 

In September of 2013 I decided to start a new chapter of my life. I left behind a wonderful career as a hairstylist to become a mom to a bajillion Savannah Cats. We had worked with the previous owners for several years before we actually had this business opportunity to own A1 Savannahs. 

When we started this journey it came with a lot of ups and downs. It was NOT easy at first, not that it is always easy now, but Martin and I stuck with it and with each other and things got better. We have learned a lot in the last several years but still have a ton more to learn. We are not perfect in any way, shape, or form. We do NOT know everything there is to know about Savannah Cats, and Servals, and USDA regulations, and state regulations and TICA codes, and enrichment, and nutrition but we do our absolute best and our love for cats and this breed is why we do this.

Martin, his father, and brother have a machining company where they work normal business hours but the cats are all MINE! Ha ha. Well... Martin and Max actually both help a lot. Martin does all of our customer relations as well as advertising and marketing. He's much better at that than I am! And Max helps me a lot with the cleaning and caring of the cats on a daily basis. Without the two of them there is no way I could do it all. 

This is really my passion and I have a love for my cats that I just can't not describe. There have been many times that I have wanted to throw in the hat because lets be honest, it's not all rainbows and butterflies. But it is always the cats that keep me going. If times are tough it is the cats that get me through and remind me why I do all of this in the first place. Its not about the money or how we make a living but its my hobby. Martin says its my really expensive hobby, but that's besides the point. ;) I absolutely love what I do everyday and am blessed to have the opportunity to do so. 

I hope all of you enjoy our blog as much as we enjoy sharing it. 

Until Our Next Cat Convo

Trying Out This Whole Blog Thang

Hey All!

So after hearing non stop about all these blogs and how we should start one I figured I would give it a go! Its not going to be perfect and 100% factual but mostly some random things about the cats, our cattery, and our crazy life! I am going to try and have a fun post every week and if anyone has anything they would like me to post about please feel free to email me! 

Looking forward to this new and fun journey!
