    Easy way to get started is just look up on the Internet Serval Cat breeders - Serval Cats for sale. There is a magazine on CATS called Cat Fancy and they have a list of breeders in the back in the classifieds. You can start by calling breeders in your area - most breeders know where you can purchase a particular breed of cat and that way you have a recommendeation. Cat shows.

    I don't even think they should take 'Servals' out from the wild! It's just mean!
  • Kali - 2012-06-26
    Yeah but it would be cool to have one.

Hi Guys

    What a lovely cat, she looks so awesome!!!

I would like a pet Serval and am willing to commit the time and effort needing to maintain one. However, I have a Blue and Gold Macaw that spends alot of time outside its cage with me. Would I still be able to spend time with the parrot out of its cage if I get a Serval? Thanks!

    Servals are gorgeous and can make a wonderful pet. Unfortunately, in the wild and per instinct, much of their diet is birds. I just don't think that you would be able to insure the safety of your B/G. I wanted one also - real much but I have birds and knew.

Get my new book SERVAL SON: Spots and Stripes Forever for an insiders look at what it's like to own--and maybe owned by-- a serval cat for more than 17 years. Look before you leap so you'll be ready to give it your all for him or her.

OH MY GOD! What the heck is wrong with some freaking people?! I am an animal lover (always have been) and although yet I haven't had the privilege of owning my own African Serval (mainly due to how expensive they are still) I have owned many other pets in my (so far) short life (I'm only 23) I've had different dogs, cats and reptiles and all have been a complete joy as my companions. I love exotic animals, the more exotic the better and more other people fear them the more I love them, and love to show those ignorant fools how wrong they are! Great example: I currently have a 7+ foot Jungle Carpet Python (Lacuna) and she is an absolute joy to be with. I am also a single father and go every day without fear of her being around my son (actually he holds her quite a bit!) They have a bad reputation for being one of the more "aggressive snakes" to own. But, she is so tame and loving and smart that she knows when I'm holding her it's not feeding time no matter how hungry she is! I can get and handle mice, rats whatever while holding her and she never even attempts to strike! I will take her out to "sun-bathe" and she always comes back to crawl up my leg to get back onto my shoulder, or even when I let other people handle her she only stays with them a moment before she comes crawling back to me. It just goes to show, if you show compassion, love and respect to any and all animals they with be your companion for the rest of their lives and return your love, compassion and loyalty! Again that goes for ANY and ALL animals! So all you ignorant people out there..GET A CLUE and GROW A HEART!

    Your comment is Awesome and needs to be heard! As for me at this time I do not have good home for a serval yet. I have owned Iguanas & there sharp, also Tarantulas, Paranas. Blue nose pits for example are very loving dogs and get bad rap cause of Ignorant people. The responsibility & care of the animals simply must be taken seriously, and I can see you are one those owners, thanks Brandon for making this point!

    I admire your love for animals as I do as well. It always bothers me when someone chimes in their negative opinions about owning wild or exotic animals. I owned my first wolf hybrid when I was your age. I did learn quickly though that she was no ordinary pup. I had to know her actions and movements, and to know when she felt threatened. Wolves are not aggressive, but ignorant ppl would say otherwise. What ppl fail to recognize is that majority of animals react upon what they know. If they are fearful, they are on the defense. Offensive behavior is not out of malice, but out of survival instincts. As for your snake, know it's actions and don't take it for granted. Taking it's natural instinct for granted is foolish. I love my hybrid, but I knew when she maybecome aggressive when timid and she did not like small children. I would've never let her around them without supervision. I would be very cautious leaving your child with a snake under the conditions of hunger or the handling of it's food.

    My only question for you is... if you are such an animal lover what has happened to the "many other pets"... if you are only 23 most of them should still be alive? How can you love and then give them away? Can there be love without an attachment a bond? Just curious... I'm an animal lover too, I own a pitbull, a german sheperd and four cats all indoor most of the time I could never dream of letting any of them go for any reason...

    I agree with you totally. My Daughter has a Stafashire Dog (don't know if its spelled correctly but anyway she is such a big baby. I just love her.

    Exotic pets are wonderful if you have the proper training and time, but exotic pets are classified as exotic for a reason, and its not because they are easily adaptable to life with humans!! Describing your python's demeanor as docile and peaceful is not a description for all 7 foot pythons in general. That is your one particular pythons personality. And to suggest that 7 foot are all loving and smart and peaceful and safe around kids is just mis-leading, dangerous, and un-wise on your part as an "exotic animal lover". Peoples negative opinions on exotic animals don't come from animals themselves, they come from trainers and enthusiasts who tout these animals that are equipped for life in harsh jungles as being safe to bring in homes with families! That is not smart, it is not helpful, and it causes more harm than good. Instead of trying to sell giant snakes and preying animals as snuggly wuggly teddy bears, why don't you inform people of the proper care and techniques for keeping these animals safe and happy. I've considered exotic pets, but your fantasy description of a giant snake being an angel brought me not one ounce of reassurance, it swayed my opinion in a negative direction, and it made me nervous for your only son who you probably wouldn't let play outside in the mud with worms and bugs all day, but would trust around a giant snake....

    I agree there is no love like that of an animal,,,but personally it makes me feel a little ill when it is time for bed and I have to put my parot back in his cage,,I dont think animals deserve to be taken from tier natural habitat,,I would not want to be taken without consent and owned by anyone,,so to truly love an animal I believe allowing them to keep thier freedom is truly loving them,,owning them is just a selfish pleasure,,the more exotic the more bragging rights,,but lets b honest how do you love something and take away its freedom and ability to live a full live in the enviroment it belongs in. Not wanting to possess or own a crature of the wild in my opinion is loving it to the max it is far from ignorance. sincerely

    Just curious but why do you say this cat is needy - really don't understand. Size, personality, just curious. Always wanted one and who knws might put it on my humans buckett list. Yes, I know they might have a problem with the birds but my human can figure that on out. I just think so gorgeous.

Do you have to have an animal licence to own an African Serval?

Click For Replies (1)
  • Charlie Roche - 2011-07-30
    I would say yes. In Florida you do - You can check with the United States Departement of Agriculture (USDA) inyour state and they will tell if you are required to have a license. They will also provide you with information on what you need to do to get a license if you wish to go that route. Good luck.
