I'm quite sure. (My security clearance for the Army was pretty damned invasive, too, FWIW.)
However, when I see Savannah breeders' sites, what I see are a lot of celebutwits, etc., brandishing these animals (some at awards' red carpets, where I'm pretty damned sure no cat WANTS to be) like the latest fashion accessory. I agree, Savannahs are lovely, but between having to keep Servals captive to keep the breed going, the price tag(s) and the "fad breed" issues, I'd personally
rather acquire my cats either through adoption or via paying a (relatively) normal price for my MC's and give the other $9-20K or what-have-you to no-kill shelters, myself.
BUT: to each their own, and just being able to afford
F1/F2 Savannahs means you are doing quite well. Good for you.
