I have a bengal. I love him more than anything in the world. We live in a tiny village. The landlord wants to sell, I was going to ask him to sell next year but there you go. We cant afford to buy it this year.

So we are looking at buying/renting in a suburb. He races around outside the house like a loon, he is just full of energy.

Has anyone gone from country to suburb? .

i really don't think there is anyway to stop them running about op. Esp crazy mad Bengals!!

I have lost 3 cats to the road, one in London in the burbs, one in Devon in a village and one in a town in Devon.

They aren't road savvy, and if they catch a scent or have to run from a dog or big bad cat then it's likely they might run in to a road.

I guess yours is used to have open space. It's a chance you take, and it's very hard. Some people never let their cats out, esp in USA i have read.

I see some with Bengals create spaces and high cat posts, with ramps etc for them to play on indoors. I'd deffo keep him in at night, this is what i do with my new boy. Litter tray in the kitchen.

Cats get killed more at night ime. I have put a reflective collar on mine too to give him a little more noticability.

hth and good luck with your move.

Yes he is in tonight. I think he's heard us talking and keeps looking at us like "I am not going out, they might not be here later".

He wears collars but loses them/takes it off.

Bugger, bugger, bugger.

He's terrifed of anyone but else. I cant rehome him. I just cant.

no you don't have to rehome him. at least you are aware of the dangers.
