Pet Tip

Pet Servals – Pet tip 208

There are millions and millions of cat lovers across North America and this is because cats make great pets. In general they are easier to take care of than dogs and much more independent than dogs. They are normally affectionate, cuddly, cute, they don’t eat that much and they don’t put too many demands on their owners. In terms of pleasing our human senses, house cats come in different breeds with different shapes, colours, fur lengths and personalities. But what if you want something a little different, more unique? What if you want a different type of cat, maybe a much larger cat? If you have a flair for the exotic you might consider getting a serval.

Servals are slowly becoming more popular as pets. Servals look like cheetahs but they are much smaller. They typically weigh anywhere from 20-40 pounds depending on their sex (males are heavier) and ancestry. Their body length is anywhere from 2-3 feet and they are about 2 feet tall. The come from Africa and still roam wild in many rural places. They are also slowly starting to become more known as house-pets but they are still quite rare and not for everyone.

Puma's Story
Puma was adopted from our local Humane Society on a rainy September day (26th) 2009. He was terribly stressed and seemed to just be out of sorts and misunderstood. So, with optimism and a great deal of love in our hearts we decided to adopt him!
It was what seemed a long drive home, but finally we arrived and put the carrier Puma came in, in the middle of the floor. We stepped back and opened it. I must admit I was terrified! However, as we leaned over the box, out peered two HUGE green eyes. With one elegant leap, there was Puma out to greet us! Puma was very interested in everything that surrounded him. From room to room he explored and tested his new home. I must say he was a completely different cat from how he behaved at his old home! He was just so beautiful and so loving! He even jumped up on the couch with us the very first night! By the end of day two he was laying on the floor watching TV and letting us pet his belly! We were overjoyed! Our new member of our family is working out better than we ever imagined and we couldn't be happier! We love our Puma!!
Why Puma??
Linc (Puma's adopt name), was very stressed and seemed to be in pain (which we know he wasn't) but every time I went to pet him he was hiss or yowl. He seemed very upset and confused. I got the impression that Linc had it very rough in his previous homes and never really felt he had a true home where he didn't have to worry about being given up and returned. As we were leaving and filling out paperwork to adopt Linc, the friendly staff decided it would be a good idea to give Linc an Antibiotic shot, just to make sure he didn’t pick up anything at the shelter. As I stood there filling out paperwork I realized all staff members were in the back with Linc, assisting his departure and vaccine. All I could hear was hissing, and yowls that would make anyone thing they were caging up a full grown lion! Poor Linc was not happy to say the least! Who would be!? No one likes shots and being confined to small places! After all that fuss, I kind heartedly joked with the staff that I hoped Linc was not half Puma!
