- STEVEN M

If you're looking for a competent, knowledgeable, caring Savannah Cat breeder look no further! From the first point of contact with Makala, She was very prompt with many questions we had. She provided well organized documentation of all her kitties medical history as well as copies of pedigrees. She was willing to listen and ease our tensions to concerns or issues we had. We absolutely love our new F3C Female Nakia and F4SBT Male Zyaire. They have such an amazing personality. I highly recommend a new Savannah Cat owner!

F4 Savannah

When I first learned that there was a breeder near me that had Savanna cats, I was so excited. My husband and I had been talking for years on getting a kitty like that. But we had so many questions. So I asked my niece if she would have Makala contact me at her earliest convenience (she is the one who told me about her). She text me that night.

I told her that we had been thinking about these cats for a long time, but we had so many questions and wondered if we could see the cats and get some much needed information. She told me absolutely and we scheduled to go to her home that weekend. My husband and I had no idea what to expect. Boy we were so surprised!

At the first moment they welcomed us in and the cats were running about having a great time. We asked her so many questions, we pet the kittens, met the breeding mommas, the papa of the last litter and their beautiful new addition, the African Serval. With that many cats, you would think it was utter chaos, but it wasn’t. The cats were all healthy and happy. Makala made sure to reiterate that these babies are not just pets, they are family, albeit like toddlers all the time lol, but not show pieces.

That was so important to me. I have had 4 kitties in my life the last 25 years and 2 of them are still with me, their health and happiness is important to me and it was important to Makala too. I told her that we weren’t quite ready for a new kitty. As our oldest was 17, but that we would be in a few years and asked if I could keep her info for when we were ready to add one of these little beauties to our home. She said yes and we left.

My husband and I talked about it for about a week and then I text asking if she still had that last little guy or not. She told me she had been waiting for us to call and definitely he was still there waiting for us. We picked him up on New Year’s Day and we are so happy.

He has settled in quite well, he came with toys and papers and good health. My cats already ate the same type of food, so that was great too. I would highly recommend getting a beautiful cat from Makala and her family. You can see the love they have for these little loves. She asks about him every 10 days or so.

When we are ready to add more to our family, we will definitely be coming back to Savanna Heightz and you should too!

Teddy

- Jessiee B

Makala is a highly regarded breeder. I was referred to her by another breeder as my heart was set on an F1, and when I saw a picture of (Now Known As) Teddy, my heart was set on HIM. From the very first call, I knew I found the breeder and Savannah for me. While we waited for Teddy to be old enough to join our family, I received almost daily, and sometimes more than that, updates with pictures. I didn’t miss out on anything while he grew. When the time came, Makala herself brought Teddy to me. He came to us happy, healthy and very well socialized. I’ve kept in touch with Makala with questions, but also simply because it’s so obvious how much she loves these cats, that it just feels right to keep her updated.

Zues, my F1 Kitty, has been such a gift to my cat family. He is Super Gentle, Sweet, playful, and extremely pretty! I would highly recommend Makala. I'm so lucky!!! He's worth 30K!! And this can only be from her hard work and dedication to her cat/kittens and cattery.

From the beginning of the process and throughout our new kitten’s growth, Makala has been amazing to work with! She is very knowledgeable, caring and helpful with the whole process.

Our new baby arrived safely, and was brought to us with extra love and care from the flight nanny. He arrived with his food, his favorite toys, blanket and all necessary documents and papers. We are so grateful to have our baby in our lives. Thank you so Makala much for everything! Highly recommend!!

I bought an F4 Savannah cat from these guys, and it was a great experience. This kitten is wonderfully socialized, no doubt because of the excellent care and handing by everyone. Makala with Savannah Heightz has been fantastic to work with. I know I will be able to count on her in the future to help with any issues or questions I might have. I would strongly recommend getting your next fur baby from these folks.

Just a short write up on how satisfied we are with our Savannah. Makala brought the most adorable boy to the airport. This shows how important the cats wellbeing is to her and only hints at the excellence of her work. I brought him to an area for him to get acclimated to his new home. Instead of staying in the open carrier or hiding, he came out looked up at me and climbed up my leg, body and alighted on my shoulder. It was love. We have another cat in the house, a Russian Blue. We were very concerned that the energetic Savannah and the settled in Blue would have a territorial clash and just hid from each other or worse fight. However, the disposition of the Savannah, which can only come from good pairing and a wholesome infancy, is just super friendly and playful no malice or unwanted aggression. They now play and play they do. Also, he has taken well to the harness. We now take him on walks where he plays in the sand by the lake and stalks birds and rabbits. He did once try to eat a bee, quickly dancing and being surprised. just like a kid he had to try once more, lol. We will be returning customers!

Makala and her family helped complete ours. My husband always wanted a Savannah, I have never owned a furry feline. She spent the time to answer our many questions, let us video chat with all the kittens. We fell in love with two, a girl and boy in the same litter. We struggled with the thought of separating but agreed on the boy. The next few weeks we waited for him to fly home, Makala and family always remained in contact with videos to calm our patience while we wait. They cuddled, loved and cared for him until it was our time. A week after Christmas, we met up at the airport excited to finally meet our boy and Makala. To my surprise, my husband (the softy) had also adopted the girl! They would not be separated after all I was so excited, and Makala did an amazing job keeping his surprise for several weeks We now have two amazing Savannah's Loki and Hela. Makala is always available answering our many questions and has become a friend. We appreciate everything you do and refer her to everyone.

I recently got a brother and sister from Savannah Heightz. I am so happy with how tame and loving the two I got are. Most cats I've had needed time to acclimate to kids, other pets and strangers, these babies are brought up in a home with a great handler and family who loves them till they go to a new home. would definitely recommend 10/10 adopting from them.

Savannah Heightz is the best place to get your kitty. Makala is so knowledgeable and if i ever have a question or need advice she is always there. I recently got one and love him to death. He is more like one of my dogs than a cat. He greets me every morning rubbing and talking as I am trying to get ready for work and lots of kisses. He loves to play fetch also. I highly suggest to check out her babies Savannah Heightz

Savannah & Cleopatra
- Jeanna C

I have always had cats in my life since I was a young child. My husband and I had discussed Savannah cats for the past 10 years since we had a neighbor who had a pair. When my cat of 14 years passed I started researching them again and was overjoyed to find that Makala lived less than 5 minutes from my home. I sent her a message with some questions and concerns that my husband and I had which she promptly answered. She agreed to let us come see her available kittens the same day. We came to choose one and left with two as they were both opposite in personality and color. Both amazing kittens! One is adventurous and into everything and the other is laid back and more into snuggling. They are still far more like having two active toddlers as they have to know what is happening at all times I appreciate that Makala has always been available to answer any questions I have had and reassure me when they do crazy cat things like jump on top of the kitchen cabinets. Makala helped me make sure my girls are healthy and let me know the best food and which vets are nearby. I know that anytime I have a question or concerns she will respond without fail and I will always have her support! She is the best best kitty Oma ever!

Jasper
- Stacy H 

Jasper and Calypso are the best cats with great personalities and fantastic socialization. Jasper is huge and such a love! demands attention and will scream for you if he doesn't see you or get your attention. His favorite thing to do is swing on his outdoor cat swing. I as a Savannah breeder myself I would recommend her to ANYONE!

Review from one of the sweetest boys I've ever has the opportunity to speak with and help choose the perfect Savannah kitten- who so patiently waited his dream Kitty to come home.

"I love Neo so much she is so cuddly and cute. She like to play with a feather."

Violet
- Cindy M

Makala hand-delivered Violet to us and I knew right away that Violet was no ordinary cat. She is smart, affectionate, and the most beautiful cat I have ever seen. Violet acclimated to our family right away and had no problem adjusting to her new home. We had existing pets in the household when she arrived and after a short isolation period to get to know her human family we slowly introduced her to our 4 other pets. She did fantastic! We purchased an exercise wheel so she can run and it so so fun to watch her go. Her favorite time to exercise is in the middle of the night. We were not successful in leash training as our smart girl was having no part of the vest. It didn't matter what type of vest I purchased she eventually figure out how to get it off. Her will was stronger than mine! Makala has continued to support us when we reach out which has been such a crucial part of the learning curve with a Savannah. Our family would highly recommend Savannah Heightz to any potential owner.

Calypso
- Stacy H

 

Jasper and Calypso are the best cats with great personalities and fantastic socialization. F1 Calypso's is very large, long legs and body with the most absolute loving personality. Calypso loves her humans and all visitors. She is an inside only cat as she has a strong bond with her humans and doesn't feel the need to go to the outdoor areas. Calypso favorite thing to do is be a mom to kittens and help take care of kittens who are not even hers.  She is the BOSS of the house. Calypso's  socialization is fantastic and its obvious Makala puts great time and care into her kittens prior to releasing them to their forever homes. I as a Savannah breeder myself I would recommend her to ANYONE!

We purchased two F6 kittens from Makala and we couldn’t be happier. I knew from my very first conversation with Makala that we should purchase our kittens from her. She’s very passionate about being a great and responsible breeder, putting special emphasis on health, improving the breed, and wonderful temperaments, and I could tell that she genuinely cared for all of her cats. In the videos she sent, all of her cats and kittens had freedom to run, play, and sleep wherever they pleased in her house. No cages! Once we decided to sign the contract to purchase, she sent us many pictures and videos while we waited for our kittens to be old enough to come home. She promptly answered many questions via text and Makala traveled across the country and hand delivered them to us. They are both healthy, gorgeous, intelligent, curious, active, sweet, and very loving kittens. Once they were home, she’s inquired frequently as to how our kittens are doing and continues to support us whenever we have questions. Overall, our experience with our kittens and Makala have been wonderful and I highly recommend Savannah Heightz!

After losing our Savannah in Dec. 2022 to cancer, we were extremely happy to have found Savannah Heightz Breeder. Makala was wonderful and very knowledgeable about this breed. We have 3 domestic cats and needed to find the right Savannah to adopt. Makala was so kind, understanding and helpful to our situation. She was very attentive and informative with helping us find the right cat. She constantly communicated with FaceTime, videos and texts. She has a great love and passion for this breed! We instantly knew we were in good hands and trusted her completely. Her cats are beautiful, healthy and raised in a very loving caring/secure environment. We especially loved that all her cats were part of her family. I know that Makala will always be there to help us with our Savannah (to include our domestic cats). We are very thankful to have found our little Nyla. Nyla is a beautiful, sweet and friendly girl! We love her so much. She has completed our home. Thank you Makala for personally flying her to us and for all your help! We definitely plan to adopt more of your cats in the near future.

Atlas & Zues have been such a gift to my cat family. Atlas is a very large sweet Girl! She loves to play soccer with the ball between her paws and fetch! She makes different sounds than my other Savannah Heightz F1 Zues, and I know what she wants when I hear her. Usually she wants me to play! As an added bonus, I have no bugs in my house as they die quick with her hunting! She has a more intensely wild, smart and tougher than Zues. I would highly recommend Makala.
