Savannah is another one of the cats trapped by Val Jones on North Fraser Harbour Commission property a few years back.

She is the daughter of Val (named for Val Jones), and the sister of Foxy, Latte, Paulo and Fury.

Savannah looks so much like her brother, Foxy, that it can be difficult to tell the two apart, particularly in photographs where you can't rely on differences in behavior. My method is to look for the two dark specks that Foxy has, one on each side of his nose. Savannah hasn't got them.

Does anyone have any "tricks" they use to tell similar cats apart?

  1. other than the size i can't really think of anything really obvious and physical, but I do think Foxy likes to sit by the drains of the front courtyard and just watch the water flow through , it's really cute actually!
