I wouldn't count on being a member making them smart. One member thought her genets were foxes. Others simply ignore advice they don't like, like a recent member who then decided to get rid of the animal after ignoring advice to help the issue. I'd rather not name names though. One of the big points of the board is to let people know what will harm their animals as well as help with the good stuff.

Laser girl has seen cats die from food being with held. I think that's a good reason to clarify how long doing so is safe. It's not just with holding to no food but if you have a fat cat you need to only diet them under a vets advice or you can get the live problems from dieting them wrong.

I didn't see anything directed at Wes or saying he was wrong, only clarifying what is safe. As far as I'm concerned that's a good thing.

Are we incapable of changing the subject back to Bengal Cats?

I wanted to respond to something Trish said even though I wasn't on the instant it was posted. I'm sorry I offended you by posting after your post.

Oh you didn't offend me I just figured everyone spoke their peace so why not drop it? The moderators always tell us if we have to comment to take it to a private message conversation.

Yes, I think everyone has said their opinion and it was agreed that she was just trying to help. No reason to argue anymore :lol:

Speaking of bengals, what is everyone's favorite type of bengal? I think it's crazy that they can get the swirls in their coat like this one:

But I'm personally not a fan, my favorite is the rosettes and snow bengal coloring like these:

I like all bengals though, even melanistics.

Spots are so last year, ha. The rosettes are cool as you don't see that in pure domestics. Our neighbors have a spotted cat but it's a scaredy cat so rarely see it. Every time I've spotted it it darts back in their garage.

One thing that I find interesting is how much they change when they grow older. I'd post the forum, but only members can view it. This is from a member named Siggav on Exoticcatz..

Here's her Bengal when she was young:

And here is him now:

I just cannot get over how dark he got! Are most Bengals (and most Savannahs that i've seen) like this?

My Snow Bengal was almost pure white when born, and now you have seen how dark he is.

i breed bengals from F1 to SBT, a bengal is very much what you make it. A good breeder handles their babies and socialises them extensivly with all my pets my bengal babies are bomb proof! Each cat no matter what breed is diffreent. i have some that love top be cuddles and some that like love a stroke when all 4 paws are on the floor. they all are extreamly affectionate. They are not hypoallergenic though :( i know im allergic to cats lol but saying that some poeple (and i mean some) are less sensative to bengals as the Protein is different in all breeds of cats. and as correctly said it transerfed from saliva to the coat when washing. as a breeder of over 10 years even now i have bought in new kittens from other breeders that have been nutters .. i guess thats what you get if they are not handled, locked outside and they have a ton of cats penned in rows with little stimulation. i wouldnt reccomend a early generation cat unless you know what your doing and done your home work. when choosing a bengal go to breeders home, see their cats not just available kittens. see how they live etc and you will find a breeder with a suitable kitten im sure :)

as for cost, you generally get what you pay for! when i first started i started with quality that i could afford .. years later i had to invest in some very expensiv cats from all around the world to progess my breeding program. in the UK pet kittens start from around £400 and breeding prices from £1000. many people who want bengal kittens of wow factor quality wont mind paying the extra as in many cases what people long for is the same standard as the parent(s) these of course are priced higher so you get what you pay for.

like anything choose wisly, look at different breeders, ask questions, find out their ethics etc.

I really think the marbled bengals are pretty. Do you breed those, Kent? I think they are lovely. If I ever got a bengal, that would be the one for me!

Thanks for the input! icon-smile


Yeah, personally the marbled bengals are my favorite too - and I still think they're the cat for me, so when I'm able to get a cat, if I don't rescue one, I think I'll surely be getting a bengal. <3 I'm already excited, which is no good, haha, because I won't be able to get one for at least 3 years, and it's most likely more, but that's okay. Hehe :)
