Ares and Dreamer

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I broke down in another thread and let the proverbial cat out of the bag that I'm getting another kitten. Her name is Dreamer and she's Ares' littermate. Heres a link (again) to their 'baby page':

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

OK, so heres the story...

My breeder, Stacy, and I were going back and forth in e-mail trying to figure the logistics of getting Ares home. I happened to be checking out her site and noticed that this amazing little girl was now available at a very low price (relatively speaking of course). Stacy wrote on the site that she has 'tude', so of course I had to ask. She told me that Dreamer isn't a big fan of people. She should be great show quality, but she doesn't like to be touched too much (only on her own terms) So I asked Stacy how close she was to Ares and one thing let to another and there you have it!

I would prefer that they come together, so our 'due date' has been pushed back to January 16th.

Now I'm even MORE excited!

Here are some more pics:

The new girl, showing her 'tude' quite well:


Dreamer from the side:


And again from the other side:


Here's my big boy Ares:


And Ares again with mom:


The 'double trouble' shot:


And finally watching mom play:

Wow, they're very pretty.

I really like the idea of 2 kittens versus just one. Especially being bengals, I think it'll also keep you, your DH and your other kitties much more sane if they can sort of play out their antics on each other. I wish a lot more shelters and breeders would encourage this sort of thing!

PS: I totally knew your secret before you said anything.

The humane society near us has a buy one, get one free for almost ALL of their cats/kittens. A friend of mine is looking into getting these two cats from there that we saw at petsmart the other day. One was very laid back (white with black spots) but the other one was a total sweetheart (all black). You could hear her purring from 10 feet away... No lie! She was only looking for one cat, but they're bonded so she will get them together (providing she's approved). I think they're a little over a year old.

As for Dreamer, Stacy said she liked playing and was close to Ares. I hate to 'break up a family' so to speak, so I jumped at the opportunity to bring them together.

My current cat is a 7 1/2 month old siamese boy. He's way to active to be an only kitty, so I think he'll get along well with the new guys. We'll see how integration goes.

(I know, my secret was pretty obvious )

They are so sweet! I love the picture of Dreamer checking herself out in the mirror. Maybe she recognizes just how cute she is and therefore believes she has every right to have big 'tude'.

Tiffany,

You know 2 marbles are double trouble...right?
They are both amazing and I'm really looking foward to seeing the pictures as
they develope.
How are you going to manage without a spotted girl or boy to keep those 2 marbles in check?

Just kidding...sort of.....

They're both gorgeous! If I were expecting two cats who looked like that, I'd be over the moon and unable to sleep till they actually arrive

I do hope Dreamer will start being more social with humans after getting used to you, or it'll probably not be much fun.

I'm not too worried about Dreamer. She will play with people (very few cats can resist a feather wand toy! ). She just doesn't like to be held and petted too much. Thats fine with me 'cause I will have two love bugs to cuddle with anyway. *Ahem... I should edit that to THREE love bugs to cuddle with

But it would be great if she DID come around though!

Hang in there Tiff! Good things (and cats!) come to those who wait!!!! And another cliche that is one of my mantras...Patience is a virtue...(and then I add) but it doesn't stop you from going crazy!

Sorry to hear about the delay. The prediction for the weather here was wrong, so I'm hoping things are better then the forecast called for in your area as well. Hang in there. Those beautiful babies will be well worth the wait.

Tiffany, can they fly with Continental, counter to counter? My understanding (from other breeders who use them) is that they handle things differently and the animals aren't subjected to cold temps, so there is no temp restriction.

I could be wrong, but it's worth looking into.

Continental IS very good. They did a fantastic job with Smudge.

I really liked Continental, I have only used them once, to ship Smudge, but they are really good! Even though they won't ship out of Maine, and I have to go to Boston to ship, I think I will continue to go with Continental, it is worth the drive, they are wonderful with the animals, and they do have the counter to counter service, and handle things different then the other airlines I checked with.
