Savannah Cat VS. Bengal Cat
Savannah Cat versus Bengal Cat.
What are the differences between the two cat breeds?
The Savannah is a challenging and rewarding companion. If you want a low-energy cat to snuggle all day while you binge on Netflix, think twice about adopting a Savannah cat. This breed has lots of energy and needs physical and mental stimulation.
If they don’t get the activity they need, they may get bored and make their own fun–which can mean destructive, unwanted behaviors around the house. For a diligent human who keeps up with this cat’s needs, the Savannah makes for a fun-loving, active family member with plenty of affection to give.
The Bengal could never be called delicate. They’re athletes, agile and graceful with a strong, muscular body, as befits a cat who looks as if they belong in the jungle. Despite their wild appearance, Bengal cats are actually quite affectionate with their human families.
They also have high energy and a fun-loving, playful side. They want to stay active and need a home that can match their energy. If you can fulfill the Bengal’s need for exercise, you’ll have a smart, loving cat who can keep you on your toes.
If you want to live with a sweet, quiet lap cat, don’t get a Savannah. This is an active, adventurous feline who enjoys life in the fast lane. Her athletic body allows her to jump to very high places, and her questing spirit leads her to take well to walks on a leash, seek out water to play in, and thoroughly explore her surroundings. This is a confident, alert, curious, and friendly cat.
While some cats are retiring sorts, most Savannahs are gracious hosts who will greet your guests with aplomb, as well as close companions who will want to spend time interacting with you. Be sure you have a well-developed sense of humor if you live with one of these cats, they are not above playing jokes on you. It takes a highly intelligent person to outwit a Savannah. You may need to switch faucet styles to prevent them from turning on their own private waterworks or attach childproof locks to keep them out of cabinets.
Don’t forget to protect breakables. Put them away where the Savannah can’t knock them over as she makes one of her famous leaps, and ensure electrical cords are protected from gnawing kittens. Provide Savannah with toys that will stand up to rough play and interactive games that will challenge her mind.
To live happily with Savannah, plan to spend plenty of time interacting with her. Be sure she has interesting toys to occupy her when you’re not around. Reward her when she does things you like, and redirect her energy and interests when she does things you don’t like. Protect special belongings by putting them out of reach. If all of this sounds like too much work, choose a different cat.
The Bengal is revered for its beautiful coat and outgoing personality, but these cats aren't for casual pet owners. Bengals are smart and cunning animals that crave attention and are always exploring. A Bengal is a handful, but you can rest assured that life with one will never be boring.
The Bengal is highly active and highly intelligent. This makes him fun to live with, but he can sometimes be challenging. On the whole, the Bengal is a confident, talkative, friendly cat who is always alert. Nothing escapes his notice. He likes to play games, including fetch, and he’s a whiz at learning tricks. His nimble paws are almost as good as hands, and it’s a good thing he doesn’t have opposable thumbs or he would probably rule the world.
The Bengal is not above jumping into the tub or strolling into the shower with you. Aquarium and pond fish may be at risk from his clever paws. He also loves to climb and can often be found perching at the highest point he can reach in the home. A tall cat tree or two is a must for this feline, as are puzzle toys that will challenge his intelligence.
On the rare occasions that he isn’t swinging on chandeliers or swimming in your pool, the affectionate Bengal will be pleased to sit on your lap. It goes without saying that he will share your bed. And yes, he steals the covers.
