The first Savannah cat was produced in 1986 and was a cross between a male serval and a Siamese domestic cat. However, the Savannah cat breed would not become popular until over ten years later towards the end of the 1990s. It was officially accepted as a registered breed in 2001 and as a championship breed later in 2012.
