- Dr. Neetu Nirdosh fears that her two children & # 39; seconds & # 39; removed from the demolition
- She says her children are too scared to play outside in Hampstead, London
- Experts believe that the leopard spotted animal could be a £ 4,000 Savannah cat
- Mother of four said her children thought that a & # 39; cheetah & # 39; the garden had entered
A mother fears that her two young children are just seconds away from a crazy & # 39; supercat & # 39; who was as big as a dog playing in their back yard.
Dr. Neetu Nirdosh said they are now too terrified to play outside after the beast has circled them around the grass, uncovering his huge canines before he bites and pulls on her daughter's sweater.
The animal, presumably a £ 4,000 Savannah cat – a cross between a tame cat and a wild African cat called a serval – fell on the youngsters in their home in Hampstead.
The hybrid cat is still supposed to roam free in the leafy North London area, but police said they are not investigating. The RSPCA said they were aware of the incident, but had also not investigated.
Mother of Four Nirdosh, how she heard her son Alexander, four, and daughter Falcon, five scream that a & # 39; cheetah & # 39; had entered their garden on Saturday afternoon.

As she peered out of the kitchen window and saw the large leopard-spotted cat, & # 39; mother's instinct took over & # 39; and she ran outside and desperately tried to chase it away.
Dr. Nirdosh said to MailOnline: & I dropped my head and I saw this big animal. It pulled on my child's sweater and circled around them.
My heart jumped out of my chest. I delved into it. Maternal instinct took over.
& # 39; I thought it was going to eat my children.

& # 39; It kept opening his mouth very wide. I threw our toy horse there. We all ran back inside and locked the door. & # 39;
What is a Savannah cat and are they legal in the UK?
Savannah Cats are characterized by their long, slender neck, triangular head and large, wide ears.
It is a cross between a domestic cat and an African Serval, and they weigh on average between 20 and 30 pounds.
The first kitten, named & # 39; Savannah & # 39; was born on April 7, 1986 and the first generation had characteristics of both domestic cats and African Servals.
Savannah cats for sale are almost always described with the letter & # 39; F & # 39; and a corresponding number indication.
This & # 39; F & # 39; number is known as a children's number and indicates how far the Savannah cat is from the Serval side of their origin.
F1 Savannah cats are cats with a Serval as one parent and a domestic cat as the other, making them 50% Serval and 50% domestic. These are the rarest Savannah cats.
F2 Savannah cats are second-generation crosses that have one Serval grandparent with three domestic cat grandparents.
F3 Savannah cats are third generation crosses with one Serval great-grandparent.
In the UK it is not legal to own a Serval or a first generation (F1) Savannah cat, being a cat that is half Serval and half domestic, without a special license that the average cat owner cannot reach.
However, F2 and subsequent generations are legal in the UK.
The family, including her two other children, watched horribly as the animal pushed the toy horse through the glass patio doors on Saturday afternoon.
Dr. Nirdosh, a cosmetic surgeon with a practice on Harley Street, who has a number of celebrity customers, said the animal has the & # 39; huge teeth & # 39; bared while crueling the toy horse before he ran into the undergrowth.
She added: & # 39; It stayed there looking at us through the glass for centuries. My heart went like you wouldn't believe.
& # 39; If I didn't arrive on time, I am afraid I would think what would have happened. It was frightening. It was a matter of seconds – that was all.
& # 39; It was muscular, powerful, it had huge teeth. It was like something from a nature program. We stayed inside as it remained in the garden. I could not open the doors.
& # 39; My children are too scared to go outside and play more. I wouldn't allow them anyway. Only when the animal is caught. & # 39;
An RSPCA spokesperson said: & It seems that this is a Savannah cat that is a hybrid bred from a serval (a small African wild cat) and a domestic cat.
& # 39; They are slightly larger than domestic cats and are sometimes kept as pets, while some require a permit for dangerous wild animals, others do not.
& # 39; It's probably a pet and that's why it was confident and not scared of people.
& # 39; We have not been contacted about this cat, but would urgently contact the police of anyone worried about a dangerous wild animal.
& # 39; If an animal is injured, people should call us on our 24-hour line on 0300 1234 999. & # 39;
