The Popular Savannah Cat

For the Love of the Breed

A Savannah cat is the name given to the spotted offspring of a domestic cat and an African Serval, which is a long-legged, large-eared wild cat. Savannahs are larger, more social and loyal than typical domestic cats.

About Spotlight Savannahs

Our adventure with the Savannah breed started in 2008 when Melody stumbled upon them while researching reputable Great Dane breeders. She then spent every available minute researching everything you should before deciding if a breed is right for you. Melody decided to start her own Savannah cattery in 2011 with just a handful of beautiful Savannah cats. Because there is a primary focus to specialize in quality and socialization, we only have a few litters each year.

Spotlight Savannahs is a TICA (The International Cat Assoc.) registered cattery (#23545). We adhere strictly to the TICA Code of breeding Ethics. We breed discriminately and only if we can find appropriate homes for our kittens (most kittens are reserved before they are 12-weeks old). We place kittens only in homes that we believe will provide a life-long commitment of love, appreciation and responsible care.

Our beautiful Savannahs have been published in several magazines, such as Cats USA, Savannah Cat Illustrated and Cat Fancy as well as being seen in commercials for companies like Orbotix (the creators of Sphero).

Meet the Breeder

Melody has been an "animal person" from birth, and developed an interest in breeding and raising animals from a young age. Raising rescue animals and volunteering/working at veterinarian's offices and local shelters helped shape Melody's ethical opinions on breeding, why it's done and what should be done to help with pet over-population. You'll frequently see Melody taking part in helping spay-and-neuter organizations, feline disease research and wildlife preservation.

In her free time, Melody enjoys photography, art & design, electronic dance music, motorcycles and going out and making new friends.

Savannah Cat FAQ


We are so blessed to have worked with so many wonderful, loving people who have given our babies the best homes possible. They do get warned, one Savannah is never enough! I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know each and every one of them and I know how much each of these great people love and understand how truly special my babies are. You can ask any one of them, once you get a Savannah from Spotlight Savannahs, you're part of the family!

"Axel is doing AMAZING. I really cannot express what a joy he is. From the moment he exited the crate (to crawl in my lap and PURRRRRR), he's been so hilarious and fun and loving. He really is THE PERFECT kitten. I don't know what your formula is, but whatever you're doing, it's GOLD!

You have the most amazing kittens. I'm so lucky to have found you, and thus, Axel. He's eating like a champ, he's using the litterbox flawlessly and he's bonding to all of us."

client 1 Elizabeth Gaynor Portland, OR

"Our experience with Spotlight Savannahs has been nothing short of amazing from the start. It's more than obvious that Melody knows what she's doing and is an amazing caretaker of these beautiful cats. Calling her a breeder almost feels like an understatement with how much love she shows all of her cats and kittens, from birth until they find their new homes, and even afterward."

client 2 Stephen Washington Kingston, NY

"I contacted Melody the moment I saw her recent litter. From day one, Melody was helpful, professional, and prompt. Every week, I received an email with an update about my kitten, Drogo, along with either photographs or a video. I really felt like Drogo was a part of my life before I even met him.

It was clear that Melody had done a great job socializing him, especially since he had absolutely no issues meeting our two other cats."

client 3 Ethan Brandt St. Louis, MO

"We highly recommend Spotlight Savannah's to anyone wanting a Savannah kitten."
