Purchasing a Serval
New Kittens coming in Feburary 2014!!!!
From time to time I do have Serval kittens for sale to responsible licensed and certified owners and breeders. Please check your states requirements and make sure you have proper documentation for the ownership of a serval. Don't be alarmed if I ask questions about your family, home and state requirements. I am only trying to figure out if you know what your getting yourself into. A serval lives 30 years in captivity and this is almost a life time pet. You'll have to make him/her a part of your family. You will be required to have a large secured outside enclosure. Even if you keep your serval in the house you will need to let your serval have some outside time. All the money I make off the kittens go's back into my servals in a way to pay for their food, health care and habitat construction etc. I do not ship the kitten's. A Serval is a wonderful member of the cat family and can become a very affectionate pet. Keeping Serval cats as pets can be the ultimate experience for avid cat lovers. But these cats take a different mind set than keeping a domestic pet cat, and have special cat care requirements. You must always remember as an owner of a Serval, that these cats will always have some of the instincts of a wild animal. You will never completely domesticate them, though you will come close. You will need to respect the wild side of them, and understand how the wild side will reflect on you. This does not mean they will be aggressive or vicious, but it does mean they have certain characteristics they have developed over thousands of years to help them survive and thrive in the wild. One very important aspect to understand is that you can't yell or smack your pet Serval. They do not understand that behavior and it can frighten them and will severely damage bonding with them. Servals that are treated with the love and respect they deserve, will bond with the people that take care of them like no other animal you have ever seen. They will welcome you into their pride and treat you as their pet. You will have years of enjoyment and love. They will treat you like no other cat does. They will chirp when they need your attention. What a joy when your African Serval decides it is time to head butt you into his/her family! When you accept the responsibility of caring for any animal like a Serval, you must realize that the animal depends on you not just for food, shelter and medical care, but also depends on you for companionship and love. Each Serval has their individual personalities and quirks, so each is different. A Serval may bond with you and never bond with another person for the rest of its life. This will make it hard for the Serval if you decide that you cannot care for it anymore. Not many people want to spend decades caring for an animal that they can't have a relationship with. Bear this in mind and realize that a Serval may live up to 30 years. The Serval will depend on you for that length of time. Some Servals may be able to bond with a new owner but that is not guaranteed. Even at best, bonding with a new owner takes time. And if reading this website has not totally changed your mind about purchasing a Serval then by all means contact me at email@example.com. I will send you a questionaire and if you meet the requirements, I will contact you and let you know when you will be getting your baby!!
