Savannahs are considered one of the larger breeds of domesticated cats. Their tall and slim build gives Savannahs the appearance of greater size than their actual weight. F1 hybrid and F2 hybrids are usually the largest, due to the stronger genetic influence of the African Serval ancestor. Male Savannahs tend to be larger than females. On average, early generation Savannahs may weigh 10 to 25 lbs. Average size is also very dependent on generation and sex, with F1 male cats usually being the largest. Later generation Savannahs are usually between 8-17 lbs. Because of the random factors in Savannah hybrid genetics, there can be significant variation in size, even in one litter. Some breeders report Savannahs in excess of 30 pounds, with at least one breeder claiming an over 40 pound male
The Bengal is a relatively new hybrid breed of cat developed to have a gentle and friendly temperament, while exhibiting the markings (such as large spots, rosettes, and a light/white belly), and body structure reminiscent of the wild Asian Leopard Cat (Prionailurus bengalensis). In other words, a Bengal cat has a desirable "wild" appearance with a gentle domestic cat temperament.
The Chausie cat is bred from the Jungle Cat and has the "wild cat" look many people look for in cats .With long legs and a lean, powerful body, the Chausie [pronounced 'chow'-see'] is a highly active and athletic cat; one which manages to keep busy in all manner of mischief.
The Abyssinian has a distinctly ticked, tawny coat. The tail and paws may show tabby markings, but the body must not. It has large almond-shaped green or gold eyes with a fine dark line aroun them, and large ears. The coat is generally a warm golden colour, but "Abys" can also be blue, fawn, cinnamon and red. There is also a Silver Abyssinian variant whose coat shows shades of white, cream and grey.
Also called the reed and swamp cat, the jungle cat’s coat is usually pale sandy brown but the colour can vary from yellowish-grey to tawny red. The underbelly is white. It is a very similar coloration to the Abyssinian breeds of the domestic cat.
Jungle cats are larger than domestic cats, and males are bigger than the females. There are no body markings except transverse brown stripes on the long legs. The tall, rounded, ears are reddish with white central bars on the back, and have small lynxlike tufts. The black-tipped tail is short, with maybe two or three faint rings.
Considerably larger than the African wildcat, the ancestor of the domestic cats, the jungle cat was trained for hunting wildfowl in Ancient Egypt. Both species were mummified and entombed.
