We just got a 2 month old Bengal kitten. His name is Zeus but we call him Zsu Zsu (It's a Wonderful Life) for short. Nathan and I have been wanting a Bengal for a while now. We thought we'd wait until the kids are older so they could pick one out, but then we realized we'd be waiting like 10 years. Since Daisy (my fire point Persian) died a few months ago, we figured we could go ahead and get a kitten now.
He is very sweet, but VERY vocal. He meows all the time. I'm hoping it's just because he's new here and learning his way around and getting used to us. He's a total lap cat though and loves to snuggle.
Zoey, our Bombay other cat, is just barely tolerating him. She hasn't warmed up yet, but I'm hoping she will soon.
Bengal's have a leopard like coat. His rosettes, as their called, will get darker and more defined as he gets older.
Here's what an older Bengal looks like:
