The Serengeti National Park.
The Serengeti is a breed of domestic cat, first developed by crossing a Bengal and an Oriental Shorthair. Recognized and registered by The International Cat Association, no other first generation crosses can be registered as Serengeti. From the Bengal × Oriental cross came the first foundation Serengeti. Breeders then worked with the cat to produce a cat that resembles the breed profile set by TICA. Created by Karen Sausman of Kingsmark Cattery in California in 1994, the breed is still in the development stages, but the ultimate aim is to produce a cat that looks similar to a serval, without using any recent wild cat blood. Serengetis are spotted cats, with long legs and very large, round tipped ears. They also posess a long neck which blends with the base of the skull without tapering. Males are generally slightly larger and heavier than females and can weigh between 10 to 15 lbs; females generally weigh between 8 and 12 lbs. Because the Bengal stock is a hybrid cat, the Serengeti is also classified as a hybrid.
