I can't believe I lost two cats last year... :(
Anyway, this is a happy post! I'm introducing our new Bengal, Leo. We waited a long time for him, we wanted to save our money and make sure we were making a good decision and getting what we were paying for.
He's amazing! His mother and father are both top winning show cats. In fact, his father is the Supreme Grand Champion (3x) brown bengal. His mom has placed top in a lot of categories also.
I'm usually a huge advocate for rescuing animals. In fact, this is the first pet I've owned that I haven't rescued. I feel guilty for it in part, but this will be our only animal that we'll ever own that is not rescued.
He is very, very wild. I mean, out of control wild. Bengals are bread from actual leopards, and he definitely lets you know it! He jumps really high, meows a lot, and attacks and plays constantly. He also loves playing in water. He spills all the water out of his bowl to play in it and he's always jumping in the bath when there's water. He is also always at the sink. He's so fun but a lot of work! I have to keep his nails trimmed like every day or else he'll cut you and it hurts!
Here are some pics: These were taken when he was 14 weeks old.
Here he is trying to make friends with my super sweet 5 year old cat, Zoey:
