Serengeti’s are a cross breed between the Oriental Shorthair and a Bengal. They have an open, friendly, and self-assured temperament that makes them wonderful family companions. They are active, vocal, and ready to play for hours, they love to climb and chase toys. Serengeti’s are known for their high levels of energy and agility. They are typically golden or yellow with distinct black spots. In a new location, they can be shy for some time, but it doesn't take them long to adapt and warm up to you as a close friend.
