Oklahoma residents Martin and Kathrin Stucki have discovered a way to successfully crossbreed domestic cats with their wild African native relatives called servals–a medium sized "tiger-bush-cat."
These Savannah cats, as they're called, are considered as extravagant as a high-end car. "People pay as much as thirty thousand dollars for the privilege of owning a hybrid that looks as if it could prowl the wilderness," writes Ariel Levy–who reported on the cats in The New Yorker.
Of course, people are concerned with how safe and humane these creatures are. PETA is against it and New York State has deemed the owning of a Savannah cat illegal if it's not five generations removed from a wildcat.
