Flower Hill recently welcomed one of the most unique shops to ever be a part of the shopping center — the Savannah Cat Shoppe. The shop is the first of its kind to feature the exotic Savannah cats, the world’s largest domestic house cat. It’s the only shop in the world with a Savannah habitat and gives the public the ability to interact with these spectacular cats.
They say that pets are a manifestation of their owners. If that’s true, Savannah cats reflect a cultured spirit: an unrivaled mix of haute couture and savage superiority. The Savannah cat is likely the most unique cat you will ever find: an extremely rare hybrid breed derived from a domestic cat mated with a serval, an African wildcat. They are known for their playful, dog-like personalities. So much like dogs in fact, that they love to play in water, and are often even seen walked on a leash or playing fetch with their owners! Although partially wildcat, Savannahs have fully domesticated personalities, are incredibly loving, and great with children and other animals, making them wonderful pets.
The Savannah Cat Shoppe opened its doors for business on Sept. 24 and is located in the lower level of Flower Hill Promenade, across from Paradise Grille’s outdoor patio. The shop features a large, enclosed glass habitat where cat lovers can come in and watch the kittens play. Usually, a fully-grown adult cat can also be found sprawled across the desk for visitors to pet and interact with. In October, the shop will hold a grand opening celebration where “Scarlett’s Magic,” a Savannah cat, and Guinness Book of World Records “World’s Tallest Cat,” will make a celebrity appearance. Check flowerhill.com’s event calendar to stay updated on the date of the grand opening.
The shop is open from 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, noon-5 p.m. on Sundays. More information can be found on their website at
