Is this a Savannah cat?

I bought her at the Humane Society so I dont know what kind she is. People tell me she purrs like a Savannah though and seems to have lots of there characteristics. What do you think? Thanks.

I don't know anything about breeds, but she is beautiful! Congrats on the addition to the family.

Re: Is this a Savannah cat?

Welcome to CF!
No, I do not think she is a Savannah Cat. What she is, though, is PURE LOVELY! What a sweet little girl kitty! She just has a unique whistle-y purr. My BooBoo and Shasta do that, though not as pronounced as your girl. Boo has more of a breathe-y purr while Shasta has more of the whistle. I think it is a unique characteristic, certainly, but I do not feel it is one that could define a breed of cat, especially a Savannah, which has a particular body-type and markings.
I think your friend who told you that probably wanted to fluff-you-up and make you feel better about your kitty by thinking it was rare. ...and in that respect...I agree. Very few cats have a whistle-y purr like yours!

She's got a squeaky purr! My Missy does that when she's really happy and it is always so good to hear. Your new little one is a gorgeous kitty.

Only if she's from that part of Georgia!

But she's lovely.
