Ashera GD

Ashera GD copyright Life Style Pets

The Ashera GD
is in the Dutch News. On 22nd Jan they reported that a "giant cat" was being held at Schipol airport while customs carried out checks. They may have mistaken the cat for a wild cat as the Ashera GD is a very large domestic cat resembling an F1 or F2 Savannah. The Savannah is a cross between the Serval (a wild cat) and a domestic cat (including the Bengal cat).

The Ashera GD is a very impressive cat and said to be hypoallergenic. Life Style Pets are the business who breed the cat. She may be a cross between the Serval as above, the Asian Leopard Cat and a domestic cat. Otherwise she is a cross between the Serval and a domestic cat such as the Bengal (in other words a Savannah with another name). If that was the case she'd be a first generation cat from that mating. This sounds vague but the truth is LifeStyle Pets don't fully disclose their breeding programme unlike normal catteries that breed registered cats in which case you have the full pedigree. This is something against the Ashera.

The Asian Leopard Cat is the foundation wild cat of the Bengal cat.

There is a page on the main website where I discuss the Life Style Pets cats of which there are essentially three "breeds", the Allerca GD (domestic shorthair), the Chakan GD (Siamese type) and the Ashera GD (exotic/wild/domestic type). The Ashera comes in non GD (Genetic Divergences) as well. "GD" signifies that the cat is hypoallergenic.

The cat that they held is called Shin Chan and had been bought by a couple from Eindhoven.

They had better have plenty of space and plenty of time as this cat is very active. They obviously have plenty of money as the Ashera GD costs over $20,000 but there are plenty of extras including a guarantee, as I remember, in respect of the hypoallergenic qualities of this highly impressive cat.

From Ashera GD to Savannah Cats

  1. The Ashera cat is A FAKE.

    any cat that is a cross between a serval and a domestic IS a savannah. The Ashera is simply a F1 or F2 Savannah RESOLD with a different name, higher price and oh, no papers. wonder why?

    The Ashera does not merely resemble the savannah, it IS one. DNA evidence has proved it. PLEASE correct this article and stop the spread of misinformation.
