It's basically a Savannah cat not bred to standard. Since it's this big it has to be an early generation one (looks that way too).

Basically the people selling that cat are frauds from my point of view because they're not offering anything unique that can't be found elsewhere for much less money. F2 Savannahs which this one looks a fair bit like can be bought for around $3,500 to ~$5,000 depending on the cat and the breeder.

Also the early generation Savannahs are really not for everyone, they're incredibly active and can be dangerous just because of their size.

Here's a picture of a beatiful early gen Savannah

Another desinger cat (like the desinger dogs) created to rip off the public. Matter of time before someone is seriously hurt.

I don't feel any cat is worth that kind money unless it is a National Winning stud cat.

Even a National Winning Stud (Persian - the most expensive breed) is not valued at $20,000. The most expensive cat I've ever heard of is $15,000 and that was sold to the Japanese!

IMO anything over $5,000 is not worth it. For those prices you can get a new car!

I know a breeder who just paid $20,000 for a bengal stud. His name is OS IW SGC Bridlewood A License to Thrill.

Quite the famous cat, but I would never pay that amount.

I googled for him and wow he's a stunning Bengal but still that's *a lot* of money for a cat.

Here's the boy:

I agree - he's a good looking boy, but personally I think you'd be nutz to put out that much money for an animal

wow thriller went for 20,000. I guess because he is considered the best stud the price is reasonably but still 20,000 dollars for a cat T___T. Isn't his stud fee around 2000?

If you click on "dogs" from that site it says they are "developing a new breed of very small dog" ugh...
Aren't early-gen Savannahs potentially somewhat wild and aggressive? I could be wrong...but if so I really hope they warn any buyers of this.

Is it possible for them to leap on anymore bandwagons???
If people took just a little time to do research they'd soon discover that a savannah would be basically the same cat (and imo better looking) for Alot less money. Although the kind of people who buy one of those don't do their research.
It worries me that there are no invitations to see the mothers, living conditions etc, you just hand over the money and 6months later... hey presto, you have an extremely active kitten your lifestyle is probably ill-equipped to deal with.
