Is this a Savannah cat?

I bought her at the humane society so I dont know what kind of bread she is. From what I understand she purrs like a Savannah. What do you think?

Awwwww! I don't know if she's part Savannah, but she has a "squeaky flywheel" purr! I have heard other cats with that kind of purr who were just "moggies" - you know - mutt cats. She is also giving you love blinkies!

She is beautiful. Her fur looks ticked... but she's definitely a tabby. Besides, without papers, there is really no way to know.

Is that an EMU blanket on your bed? Are you a student there? My sis teaches there.

ETA: my guess is that she is a loving, loud-purring domestic shorthair.

BTW - Savannahs are big muscular cats with the arrowhead- rosette spots on them like their wild ancestors.

She doesn't look like a Savannah (which isn't a very common breed). Every cat has a very individual purr, and meow (my 3 all purr and meow differently), so guessing breed just by the purr probably wouldn't give you much.

I also guess that she's a Domestic Shorthair (DSH), and a very happy one at that!

She's beautiful! I think that squeaky-purr means she's really happy at least that's what I believe it means when my Bella does it...

Hmmmmm, can't answer on the breed question, but the squeaky purr part is a bit ... concerning, if not cute to say the least. Otherwise, when she is breathing normally, does she sound congested at all? Any sneezing or coughing?

Really, without papers, there is no way to know. Savannahs are still very rare... but she is a cutie!!!
