February 13th, 2017 - A Kitty that Saved a Life.

I'm writing you to tell you a tale. Of a wonderful kitty that saved my life. My husband was injured on the job, making it so I had to drive solo for a short time. During this time I had become ill and was having a hard time controlling my blood sugar. I am a diabetic and my sugar levels kept dropping to low. 

Now Nika has a habit of biting and pulling my hair when I'm sleeping to wake me when she is hungry. This one night I had fed her just before going to bed, knowing she would have enough to get her through the night. Around 10:30 that night, only 2 hours in to sleep. She started it up. Pulling my hair, pawing my face and meowing in my ear. I told her she had food and to leave me be. She didn't give up and didn't stop till I sat up. When I did I knew there was something wrong, with me. I checked my sugar level and found I was dangerously low, as in almost time to send me to the hospital kinda low. 

If it wasn't for her I could have ended up in a coma and no one would have known. It was only her and I in the truck. I knew dogs could smell the change and notify/wake the person but I never thought of cats doing it. She has done this for me once more in the last month.

As it turns out I had a major infection, in side, that I didn't know was making me so sick. And messing up my sugar control.

So there it is. A tale of a kitty, I got from you. My Nika, my life saver.

A1Savannahs flies to El Salvador to assist with the ideas and realization of the Serval habitat in the Fundacion Refugio Salvaje. Besides the Servals from A1Savannahs, the enourmous animal park houses lions, tigers, cougars, leopards and Margays. The president of the park, known for providing paradisical enclosures for all his exotic cats, relied on A1Savannahs expertise in the preparation of a complete balanced feline diet as well as the set up of a Serval habitat that provides plenty of species designed enrichment and adequate breeding quaters.

May 3rd 2010 - US Military Technology Testing 

A1Savannahs - Protagonist in including advanced US Military technology into their routine Serval Hybrid care program.

A1Savannahs is using the latest FLIR Thermography cameras. 

The infrared heat that an animal emits from its body can be "viewed" with an infrared camera. The heat patterns that can be seen, show a trained practitioner how the blood flow is normal, or abnormal, in a particular animal. Blood flow can be either increased or decreased, both indications of health problems. 

Unlike X-Ray or Ultrasound, Thermography doesn't radiate waves and therefore it is a save, non-invasive, but reliable diagnostic tool. A1Savannahs Thermography cameras complete the preventive health care program designed to detect health problems before they show clinical signs.

April 7th, 2010 - The Oklahoman Newspaper

 Customers are going wild over cats bred in Ponca City.

The Oklahoman Newspaper, By Jennifer Palmer 

Visitors to A1 Savannahs have included movie stars and famous athletes, as well as regular folks, searching for a furry companion that might raise an eyebrow or two. The cats, which are bred from wild African servals, can be as big as a toddler, pounce 7-feet in the air and run alongside their owner. 

On a recent afternoon at the rural farm, owned by Martin and Kathrin Stucki, dozens of cats sauntered back and forth in their cages. They feasted on raw chicken legs and, when taunted, playfully batted at a feather dangling from a stick..  see full article
