Teaser... Ares update

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
As you may have heard me mention previously (about a million times! ) I'm getting a new kitten. His name is Ares and he's a beautiful brown marbled tabby bengal. He was supposed to come home last week, but he's flying to us, and due to the holidays, all the flights were overbooked. So he is scheduled to come home tomorrow. My breeder is sending updated pics to me today, but she's been having trouble with her e-mail, so I may have him home by the time I get the pics. Either way, I'll have new pics posted no later than tomorrow evening.

In the meantime, to ease the 'bengalust' some of you may be having lately , I'm posting links to some of the cats in Ares' pedigree. He actually has a pretty impressive lineage.

This is his grandsire on moms side: QGC/Supreme Roll of Honor, Best ACFA Bengal: Chloes Painted Spirit of Adventure Beach

OK, now on with your regularly scheduled program!

I'm glad you all made it home safely and uneventfully! You must be so excited! I'm glad he's playing already too.

*sigh*

No Ares today. Probably not tomorrow either, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I spoke with the guy at Skywest and he said there was an available flight out on Saturday, but you can only book 24 hours in advance.

Wish us luck that we get Ares home soon!

luck getting that sweet baby Ares home whishing here
I had a lot of problems come up getting Smudge to kluchetta (she is on this site and bought one of my kittens) It ended up taken me another month then I was supposed to, my DH broke down on the way to the air port (I live in maine, the air line I used continental doesn't ship out of maine so we had to drive 4 hours or so to get him on the plane in boston) I also was in a car accident and totaled my car, ect. I am glad you are being patient, it isn't your breeders fault like it was mine, but it still makes us worry about the new owner getting upset, ect. Thankfully kluchetta was very patient and I did get him out. I didn't know you can only book 24 hours in advanve, who is the breeder using? Or is it just because of the time of year? I hope saturdays the day!

Stacy, my breeder, is doing everything she can. I know its not her fault. She's in Montana, and the only airline she can use is Skywest, who operate under Delta and they have very limited options going out of Helena.

She's gonna call first thing tomorrow morning to book the Saturday flight. I've got all toes, fingers and paws crossed over here... even an occasional crossed eye (Duke focuses HARD when he plays!)LOL!

Patience is a virtue! Plus, it'll all be worth it when our baby gets home!

Thanks!

I didn't mean it was her fault, she can't controll the airlines I was saying that it wasn't her fault being delayed, like it was my fault. It was completely my fault I couldn't get Smudge out, even though things came up that I couldn't help, it wasn't that I couldn't get him on a flight, is all, just glad to see you are being patient and with her too. I am crossing every thing her for you too

LOL! I didn't mean to imply that you meant to imply that it was her fault! I was just agreeing with you.

Communicating over the internet is tricky sometimes!

Thanks to you to Kluchetta!

In the mean time, here are some pics to tide us over!

Aaaaaawwwww!!!!!!!!! HE'S SO CUTE I CAN BARELY STAND IT!!!! Wow, this has to be hard waiting to get that baby. I'm praying that everything goes well for Saturday. If you could please do me the biggest favor tiffanyjbt--when you get him could you please give him a big hug for me?!? I've got to stop writing so that I can look at his pics some more.

Of course I'll give him a big hug from you! In fact, I'll start a list!

It is hard waiting, but it is what it is. I'm a relatively patient person...

Oh yeah, I have a secret too and the pics give a clue...
post #17 of 26
Are you getting two of them??? Oh my goodness!! It that it?

Well... I was trying to give a few other people a chance to guess, but since you can't wait 15 minutes...

Yes, I'm bringing them both home!

Thats Ares in the first two pics. Ares and his sister Dreamer in the second two pics and just Dreamer in the last pic.

I'm terrible at keeping secrets anyway!

OH MY GOODNESS!!! That is so incredibly fabulous!! I'm so happy for you and me because I get to see pics! Congratulations.

I thought it may have been his mom and you were getting the mother too, close enogh, a sister, you lucky little sh...
I am so excited for you! will they beable to be shipped together, or will you have to wait? or...? How old is the sister?
I am crossing fingers for saturday Good luck I hope you don't have to wait any longer then sat

Yes, they will be shipped together. They're littermates and very close to each other.

This is the link to their 'baby page':

http://www.rockybengals.com/blithe_kits.htm

You'll see Dreamer's price is pretty low because she's got 'tude' as her breeder put it. That basically means she doesn't like being handled and isn't a big fan of people. I thought it would be good for her to go to a home with one of her siblings that she has grown up with and Stacy (our breeder) agreed. And besides, I don't have a siamese and two bengals on the way because I wanted lap cats! I think she needs to get a health certificate first though, so I'm not sure if Saturday will work after all... *sigh* but now the wait will be Double worth it!

How terribly exciting. keep us posted!!!
post #24 of 26
They are both adorable. I have 2 Bengals as well. My girl, Angel is a Marble Bengal and my boy Simba is a brown spotted Bengal. My boy is the naughtiest, and I suggest that you Bengal-proof your home. They will climb all over the place and knock everything that isn't nailed down off of shelves. Simba actually pitches things across the room
post #25 of 26
That's a great surprise! They are both such beautiful babies
