Savannah cats do not specifically require a special diet, although most savannah cat breeders and owners recommend only premium cat foods. We recommend and use Innova Evo wet food and Royal Canin dry food. Others recommend a partial or complete raw food diet with at least 32% protein and no by-products. Issues of Savannah diet are not without controversy. Some will recommend a calcium supplement, while others consider it unnecessary, or even harmful.
One thing to note is that Unlike humans, animals (cats & dogs) do not suffer from any moderate amounts of fats in their diets. In fact, it does not cause a bad effect in their heart or their arteries. For those who choose to cook foods for your Savannah cat then you must be aware that nutrients might be destroyed along the cooking process.
A homemade cat diet should also be high in moisture. Cats do not drink excessive amounts of water so it is crucial that their meals contain the vast majority of water they will need. High moisture levels are important for proper organ function. There are many available recipes on the internet or in books. It is always recommended that when changing a diet plan it should be gradually introduced to your Savannah cat with the old foods.
Kittens require a high quality wet food for at least the first months and then can be slowly transitioned to a high quality dry food. When making the transition from your kitten’s wet food start slowly over a period of at least 30 days, Increase it little by little each day until you entirely switch to the dry food or other food of your choice.
