This unusual breed of cat—the Savannah—is a relative newcomer to the cat world, being established as a breed in 2012. Highly intelligent, curious and active, he demands a lot of attention and will force you to give it to him if he thinks he's being ignored.
He seems to have an overdeveloped sense of humor, as you can see in this video where this Savannah encounters a black bear. Typically, the Savannah will do things like climb up really high and push things off on your head.
This particular cat is having the time of his life just sneaking up on the unsuspecting bear who probably came to the door for a hand out.
Although Savannahs like to climb really high—the higher, the better—they can come up with some interesting challenges from the floor, too. Like taking on a black bear. Hmm...
These cats enjoy challenges like being clicker-trained. I wonder what kind of training he did to be a bear-hunter?
When he pops up in front of Smokey, though, the bear's the one surprised! And in no time, the cat has him on the run.
The bear backs off as if to way, "What the heck?" And the cat adopts a position sure to convince the bear to stay gone. After all, it's the cat's house!
You'll enjoy sharing this video with your outdoorsy friends who may not have thought of taking a Savannah cat into the wilderness with them on their next outing!
