Any other breed, or 'just' little tabbies?

Well since you know the mom and she is not a Savannah, I would think the genes would be further diluted (IF the father was in any way Savannah).

Savannahs are considered a purebred cat. You typically have to get one from a breeder and like most pure breds, they are pricey!

HOWEVER,

People have lost Savannahs and if they were not neutered/spayed, then of course they will mate with a feral or stray. There are also backyard breeders who may have not been as careful. Savannahs are very active so some people have surrendered theirs to rescue groups.

Coat patterns and colors are found on most cat breeds so one would have to look for other distinguishing characteristics to determine possible relation to a specific breed.

For Savannahs, their tall adult height, long legs and neck are very noticeable. Also, hooded (brows) eyes are only found on Savannahs. Their head and body shape and nose are also distinctive. They also have tall ears that sit on top of head. You can look for dog style panting ---they pant more easily than other cats in a way that is very remniscent of dogs. It is very easy to teach them to walk on a leash.

I just learned that Ocelli marks can be found on Tabbies as the original Tabby had them, but they tend to stand out more on Savannahs and even more on Servals. Other wild cats (forgot which) can have them too.

It will be fun to watch them grow either way!

Oh and forgot to mention Savannahs may also be hybrids of Serval with Siamese, Oriental or Egyptian Mau.
