10 Ways a Savannah Cat Can Make You Healthier

Your Savannah Cat (or any cat for that matter) may be able to keep your doctor away, the same way fruit and veggies do! Alright, maybe not quite as well, but there are some significant health benefits to owning a cat.

For those that are not familiar with the Savannah Cat breed, it is a hybrid cat, which means that a wild African Serval is bred with a domestic cat. They have an exotic appearance but possess a loving, social personality similar to that of the domestic cat. When gazing at a Savannah Cat, people usually think they are much larger in size than they are due to the length and height of the cat. The largest Savannahs can be up to 30 lbs in weight and 19 inches in height (to their shoulder).

F3SavannahCat.com recently published an infographic showcasing how Savannah Cats can make their owners healthier (you can find it below). Here is an example: were you aware that taking care of a Savannah Cat can reduce symptoms of depression? It can – according to Dr. Ian Cook from the Depression Research and Clinic Program at UCLA, “[Cats] offer an unconditional love that can be very helpful to people that suffer from depression.”

Or how about this: did you know that owning a cat can lower your blood pressure? According to a study performed by a psychologist from the University of New York at Buffalo, a cat owner’s blood pressure spikes caused by stressful situations are about 50% lower than non-cat owners.

Cool, isn’t it?

  1. I have never seen a Savannah cat. From your description, I desperately need one. For my blood pressure, allergies, heart, and bones; and for my husband’s ADHD & depression. I love learning all this about cats!

  2. Love this story.. I don’t have savannah-cat but my two cats have been everything to me and then some, my oldest cat passed away last year so now I have one cat and one dog. I have been blessed with 3 wonderful loving pets.

  3. Beautiful cat! They all are, aren’t they? My cat is; he is an Egyptian Mau. I am always at one Dr. or the other. They make me happier but not healthier. There is no difference in how often I go to the Dr. with or without a loveable cat. If there was, I would adopt more. I love cats and am allergic to them. I have to bathe them once a wk. to keep down the dander so I can breathe. They don’t seem to notice and sleep on me even. I think they are worth it all, definitely showing their love always and showing their appreciation.

  4. Nice blog! I am really very surprised after reading your blog that the cat can also make us healthier. I was totally unaware of this Savannah cat’s magic. Thanks for sharing such wonderful blog with us keep sharing some more posts.

    • Hey, Tracy. Yes, cats are very therapeutic, of course. All cats, not just the Savannah. That is a beautiful cat, isn’t it? If only I could afford one. However, I’m quite happy with my tabby cat, Jessie. She’s all I need. 🙂 I’m going to check out your post about 17 Best Cat Movies. Cool! On a side note, have you heard of Oscar, the Hospice Cat? I love that cat. Thanks so much for stopping by! Cheers.

  5. Thanks so much for joining our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. We love making new friends. Should you decide to join us in the future (and we sure hope you do), out of courtesy to us as your hosts, would you please link back to The Cat on My Head and/or display our Sunday Selfies badge. The Savannah cat photo is excellent. Mom says, she thinks that all cats provide the benefits in your infographic.

    • Yes, it is true that all cats possess those capabilities. 🙂 I agree. It’s just that the guy who made the infographic is rather fond of Savannah Cats. And yes, I certainly will link back to you. I have you on my to-do list. 🙂 See you again! Thanks for visiting.

    • Ooh, I bet they can cause a lot of mischief! That a heavy cat! I’m learning more about them while putting this post together. There are 5 ‘grades’ of them, from wildest to more domesticated. Wildest is 50% serval, for example. They recommend a F3 for a house cat. It’s interesting. They’re so beautiful. Thank you for visiting! Peace out.
