Alex (Zelda) - F4 Savannah

Dear Martin and Amanda Engster,

I cannot thank you two enough for blessing me with my best friend, Zelda (formerly known as Alex). I had wanted a savannah for several years, so finally once I graduated college, my mom and I did some research and we came across A1Savannahs. I inquired about Zelda because I could not resist her adorable little face. She has the most unique eyes I have seen on a cat. Martin and Amanda immediately called me and within a few days she was officially mine!

Amanda and Martin have been phenomenal people and breeders. They are people of integrity and loyalty. I could not have asked for better people to have raised my Zelda. They are extremely knowledgeable, and worked with me and my busy work schedule.  They have proven to me that they care so much about the cats and their savannah customers. After my experience and doing countless hours of research prior to buying, I would recommend them to anyone. They are fairly priced and truly care about the cats and the Savannah breed. They make sure these cats all go to great homes, and inform people who inquire about them the pros and cons of having these hybrid cat breeds. I have kept in touch with them since I have gotten Zelda, and I believe them when they say I can call or text them for the entirety of Zelda’s life. I send them pictures and keep them updated about her. It is not often you find breeders like them. It has been a pleasure knowing them!

I could talk about Zelda all dang day… She is the most perfect friend I could have ever asked for. She is adventurous, playful, curious, super intelligent, stunning, and cuddly.  I call her a Ninja because she can get into anything, anywhere. Her favorite spot is curled up in my bed on a fleece blanket (she LOVES fleece) and cuddling with her mommy after a long day at work. Zelda also likes to steals my kitchen sponges and carries them like it’s her little baby around the house- it is cute! When she is at Grandma’s house, she gets along great with my mom’s five Pomeranians. She acts just like one of them; I would say she acts even more like a dog than my other cats. She actually prefers my dogs. She absolutely adores being outside, running around. She plays fetch and chases her favorite toy with her mommy. She can run fast and climb trees like no other. I have also taken her on hikes with me, because I love the outdoors- and so does she! Zelda also likes to travel with her mommy. I have taken her on many road trips (since my family lives in Chicago and I work in Tennessee, and also our 9 hour commute to take her home) , as well as flying with her to Arizona for a few weeks. She doesn’t complain or meow; she just looks out the window and admires her beautiful world.

Zelda is exactly what I needed in my life, she is a girl’s best friend <3 ! She can be a handful at times, but I would not change a THING about her. She is perfect in every way, and she hopefully will have a brother/sister in the near future!
