A funny question to be sure. What's the wildest domestic cat breed?

Initially I thought bengals - 50% wild, more or less, as half the

genes seem to be from the Asian spotted leopard.

But now I'm thinking Savannahs, which I understand to be a mix of

Bengal and Serval - that would be 75% wild, if I've got the math

right.

Any opinions?

To be honest you have double standard as the wildest domestic cat breed.

Simply put, all cats are wild in some fashion.

Neither, as there are regulations on how many generations "away" from

their wild ancestors that these cats must be in order to be

considered pets.
