Mishka, a 1-year-old F1 Savannah cat, is the resident cat at The Savannah Cat Shoppe’s new San Diego-area location.
A Southern California pet shop devoted exclusively to the exotic Savannah cat reported today that it has opened a second location.

The new Savannah Cat Shoppe, located in Del Mar, Calif., is about 1,000 square feet. Visitors can view Savannah kittens and proprietor/operator Frank Hopperton’s large one-year-old F1 Savannah. The kittens all come from The Savannah Cattery and live at the store in a habitat that takes up about a third of the space, Hopperton said. Similar to the original The Savannah Cat Shoppe in Rancho Cucamonga, Del Mar customers can purchase a Savannah kitten directly from the store.

“The cats are absolutely extraordinary and worth every penny,” Hopperton said. “Their exotic looks and dog-like temperament make them a perfect pet, even for the most discerning dog lovers.”

In addition to the cats, the store will sell some cat supplies, including cat food, litter and accessories.

A grand opening celebration is slated for later next month at a date yet to be determined. “Scarlett’s Magic,” who reigns as Guinness Book’s “World’s Tallest Domestic Cat,” will be at the Del Mar store on Saturday, Oct. 1.

I love the Savannahs! Unfortunately, most are out of my price range!! You should post pictures of the kittens you have for sale.

To answer to Karen: responsible breeders are not the problem. They either spay and neuter the kittens before they leave their home or make the buyer sign a contract obligating the buyer to spay or neuter the kittens before six months of age. It is the irresponsible people who do not spay or neuter their cats that are the problem. By the way, my three cats are all rescues and spayed.
Thank you.

While I have two adoptees and two off the street rescues, I can understand wanting to buy one of these kitties. They are beautiful!
