So jealous! Would love one!

SelfObsessionHoney Sat 25-Feb-17 19:26:44

I want one!

mrswarthog Sat 25-Feb-17 19:34:18

I have three of these (all rescue) - I hope she's prepared for him because they're villains! Wait until he starts 'talking'.....

Idrinkandiknowstuff Sat 25-Feb-17 19:43:16

Awwwww, he's gorgeous.

katymac Sat 25-Feb-17 19:44:57

Look at the size of his paws!! He is going to grow

Lambbone Sat 25-Feb-17 20:30:50

He does appear to be full of original sin already grin

cozietoesie Sat 25-Feb-17 20:33:16

He's very beautiful - but I don't give that sofa arm long. He's got a look in his eye there. wink

Ah, beautiful smile

I would love a bengal.

He's gorgeous! I have my Bengal curled up snoozing on my lap. They're great fun.

HaHaHa, Suckers.

Let's hope her vet neuters before 6 months.

Good luck with that!

They are very rewarding, but incredibly high maintenance, very loud, very destructive, and need huge territories in which to terrorise other cats with their very loud threats

Clear all window ledges and hide anything breakable voice of experience

Is he going to be indoor?

cozietoesie Sat 25-Feb-17 21:01:10

Voices of experience there. Any chance of 'that' photo, Fluffy? wink

He will be able to come and go as he pleases once he has had his jabs (and has learned to use the cat flap). She has a big garden with plenty of trees to climb so that should help him release some energy.

Those paws! Haha I remember 'that' photo.

Toddlerteaplease Sun 26-Feb-17 11:47:06

Trouble on four legs methinks. But sooo gorgeous he'll get away with it!

Bengals are Jack Russell terriers in a cat onesie. The biggest surprise disappointment is that the energy of the kitten phase just carries on into adulthood.

Here he is after he'd broken into the airing cupboard and pulled two loo rolls out to play with.

I plan to get an adult rescue Bengal when the time comes though, a lot end up in rescues for typical Bengal behaviour like inappropriate toileting & being too noisy.

Our neighbourhood is terrorised by a bengal. I am not a fan

cozietoesie Sun 26-Feb-17 17:09:30

And he's not even looking real guilty! His look is more of a 'So what's it to you?' grin

cozietoesie Sun 26-Feb-17 17:11:58

Thank Goodness for Siamese. The most trainable animals going when they're bonded.

Northernlurker Sun 26-Feb-17 18:11:58

Some friends have a bengal cross. Stunning, very tall cat. A lethal killer and moderately noisy but not too criminal otherwise.
That's a gorgeous kitten.

* a lot end up in rescues for typical Bengal behaviour like inappropriate toileting & being too noisy.*

They also end up in rescue when people try to keep them as indoor cats and can't cope with the energy levels.

I had one owner actually considering pts because she thought there was something wrong with the cat, as he'd spend 2 or 3 hours a day going mental running around the flat.

reallyanotherone that is so sad. I wish people would do some research before getting cats/dogs not just think "ooooh pretty".

Lambbone that is a beaut of a kitten, but on my, his paws are MASSIVE!
