Zurie needs a forever home now - UPDATED



Zurie went to her new forever home.  Her sister Enchanted went to a great home in VA.  The family so loved her that one of their married daughters called and wanted ZuZu.  Both cats are now in homes that I personally know and know that they will have the great forever home that they deserve.

Thanks everyone.


My name is Zurie. I'm a SBT Savannah. My dad, Catnlion, said I could have a forever home before Christmas. He said he will work out almost any deal as long as the family was special and loving.



Zurie was born August 22, 2012. Her mother is a F7 melanistic Savannah. Dad was a golden F7 Savannah. Zurie, like most cats, wants to be loved, but on her schedule. She is very playful and loves her battery operated bug she can chase and pound on all night long.

She eats well, always uses her litter box, has no problem with her harness and leash. She loves going outside on her leash as she must be an inside only cat. There are so many toys, read bugs, outside to play with. She even comes when she is called. She has been handled since she was 6 hours old. She was raised in a home, not a kitten room, where she played with the dogs, large (make that huge) non-related, unfixed (his days are numbered until he loses his “jingle bells”) male cat. She also was taken care in the home of an extended family. Grandfather, us, daughter, granddaughter and of course all the friends that a 10 year old girl has that wants to come over and play with kittens.

She is the last of the litter to go. I like her and I haven't put my heart into it. I was asking $1200 plus s&h flying out of Phoenix, AZ and may be delivered depending on where you live. I'm an OTR truck driver so if you live where I drive she is welcome to spend her final days with me in the truck. After all, she was born in the truck.

The main thing here is the family not the money. That can be worked out. I'm more reasonable than Congress and the White House on such matters. In fact, since I like it better here, and Open Salon's servers are off line and I assume gone, I will give 1/3 of what ever we agree on to keep this site going. I say a third because whoever it was that called Savannah kittens “food processing machines” really know what they are talking about.

All joking aside. Savannah cats are very active, very large, and will surprise you on their ability to jump and climb, and they need people interaction. They do not require any special food, forget the raw food crowd, but they can really pack the chow away so they will put down the wet food. There are no other great expenses except you will need to get her fixed. She has all her shots. You don't really need a special vet other than one who deals with cats. Because of their wild animal foundation, in this case 8 generations ago, some states (idiots) like GA and some cities (heavy populated idiots) like NYC still make hybrid cats illegal to own. Please check your area.

Did you know that there are at least 17 known health reasons to own a cat? They are: lower risk of cardiovascular disease, reduce risk of heart attack, improved immune function, decrease chance of developing allergies, help prevent asthma in children, reduced blood pressure, lower triglycerides, lower cholesterol, reduced risk of stroke, reduced stress, reduced anxiety, improved your mood, help with depression, help with autism, reduced loneliness, fewer health care visits and a longer life.

According to the ASPCA there are 86.4 million cats as pets in the United States. There are only a few thousand Savannahs according to TICA where they are a registered breed. Early generation Savannah sell at prices of up to $20,000. This is a great opportunity for some special family to have a great and unique cat. So if you are Bill Gates, put up the cash. If you are, or know of, a wounded warrior or other such deserving person we can work something out. The key here is a great family, nothing else.

Finally, I was around OS for a long time. If you don't know me, or still want to check, I can give you other breeders and people who have my cats for references. Please post what you think here, or ask questions, and tell your friends. You can contact me at my normal email address of: friend_24501@yahoo.com.

We now return you to your normal dog of a channel.

I hope your cat finds her "forever" home !

I clicked as I get emails about foster kids needing their "forever" home -- this is less heartbreaking  : )

I didn't know that about hybrid cats being illegal in Georgia, NYC.  Huh, who knew?

Hope you love your new home, Zurie  : )

Cute kitty photos.  I'd be interested except we're full here on the cat quota...good luck!

Thanks for dropping by and commenting.  

She will make a wonderful addition to somebodies home.  While she may not be for your home, you could help get the word out.  I think her going to a PTSD person would be wonderful.  She is so calming.

BTW, she will always have a home with me.  If she ever needs to be re-homed for some reason she is always welcome at my place.

I will pass along...lots of cat lovers in my town!

She's a pretty cat. I have Puff, so no go for me, but I'll share it on my FB.

What a pretty kitty and such an enticing bit of advertising copywriting.  I would love a kitty, a doggy too, but already have a First Pet, a crabby squawky bird named Fran, and she is species intolerant when it comes to the kitties.

Your description sounds just like our Bengal. She pulls out the leash and harness then puts it in front of the coffee pot or the back door for me. As far as eating, understood. Ours was nicknamed "Tube" for a long time until her growth period was over.

Good luck.

Phyllis, I understand.  They are almost like kids.  I have to many of them too  (9).

Greenheron, Was reading last night and I don't know what made me think of it, but, I figured that the people here would know of a good deserving home for her.  The family is the most important thing.  I don't know about the writing but thanks.  Now if you want a kid I have a few extra of them, and I'm not so picky about the family.  :)  About that noisy bird.  If you knew how big these cats get, the bird would sing like a canary.

AKA.  I had two Bengal cats.  Lost them in the divorce, but that is how I got interested in exotics to start with.  Since Savannahs are not legal everywhere I also do Cheetoh cats.  They are crossed out of Bengals.  Talk about a real chow hound.  And scream!  I'm shocked that the neighbor hasn't called the police fearing that somebody is getting beaten up at our place.  Walls are no match for her voice when she wants something.

These animals are more like dogs than cats sometime.  You hear about it but you don't really understand it until you have one.  A clicker and a little tuna and I would be willing to bet you can teach them to do anything a dog would do.

BTW, I love the coffee pot trick so you have to take him out.  What else has he got you trained to do?

She has trained me to play fetch until my arm hurts, and to get her food out at daybreak when she wakes etc. etc.

Big voice. She got 86'd from one boarding house for being too much to handle and howling when I was on vacation. Hell ...they were just lazy. Wants to play a lot. She obeys commands and has an obvious emotional reaction to pleasing us by behaving properly. But there is devilsh streak if she is miffed about something.

Much like a dog. She is well trained. Puts her toys away in a basket etc. It's fascinating.

You sound like the best kitty daddy ever, and I'm sure Zurie will get only the best home. When my mother's favorite cat accidentally had a litter of six, she screened people so heavily that she ended up with seven cats.  Until the last one died, she called them "the kittens".

Lovely the dad who hopes for a special and loving forever home for Zurie.  Asking a kitty loving friend to come and have a look in case he might know of anyone who could help.
