Savannah's are very intelligent, but demand attention. They must also have access to the yard and the neighbourhood and like to hunt. Loyal and develop bonds with their owner (or butler).

Amazing the benchmark for a smart cat is “almost” like a dog. That means the dumbest dog is smarter than the smartest cat.

My 9yr old Birman "Chocky" is a very smart boy. Show him his collar and lead and loves to go for a walk, he is so social, everybody is his friend to the point where I can't let him on the loose as anybody could pick him up and walk away with him, Chocky is the boss of my toy poodle and let's him know when it's time for a game of chasey around the house, loves to be groomed and all feet in the air for a tummy massage please. He is our perfect cat and love him very much.

I find the Bengal cats the best. Wild looking but extremely docile. Loves attention from anyone and loved to be fussed over. Used to take ours to Home Depot. They ate up the attention they got.

Got my Bengal, Lyra, about 6 months ago and it was the best decision I made. She is so dog like! She follows me around everywhere and loves to play fetch. Also just recently found out she also loves the water. Definitely the most energetic cat I have ever had but actually hasn't destroyed anything (except her own toys). Just make sure to have several cat scratchers around and she seems to head for them before scratching anything else. It's really funny bcz I can always tell when she has to scratch and can't help herself, but she will always run to the scratcher.
