Julie's New Cattery

I always had the dream of opening my own cattery where cats would be kings. Now my dream is becoming reality and I have started my own Savannah breeding program. Thinking of the possibility of having domesticated cats that look like wild African Servals, thrilled me.

I flew to Oklahoma to visit A1 Savannahs, the founder of the Savannah cat breed. When I arrived, it was love at first sight with the cats. They were so beautiful that they simply took my breath away.

With the judicious advices of Martin and Kathrin Stucki, whom I would like to thank for everything, I could choose my cats to start my own breeding program.

Martin and Kathrin have since visited me in Canada and generously helped with the planning and set up of our cattery, as well as the nutrition planning and providing of pictures for my web page.  We are proud to advertise that all our cats are bred and raised by A1 Savannahs.

Hello and Welcome to A1 Savannahs.

Our cattery is USDA Licensed and a Preferred Breeder Registered with The International Cat Association (TICA). If you are looking for a Savannah Kitten, then you have come to the right place. A1 Savannahs has been breeding the finest Savannah Kittens since the beginning. A1 Savannahs, formerly New Horizon Bengals, was founded by Joyce Sroufe. Joyce started breeding Savannah Cats in the late 1980's and started to register her first litters in 1994. She is also well known among exotic cat owners and breeders as the original founder of the Savannah Cat Breed and an expert in the breeding and care of exotic cats. A1 Savannahs is now owned by Martin and Amanda Engster. Often imitated, we are the original founder of the Savannah Cat breed, and have many years combined of knowledge and experience.
