And then.....there were silvers! - Page 2

post #31 of 54
Congratulations, what beautiful kittens, and mum looks happy and content. Even my uneducated eye can see the difference in colour between the silvers and the browns it's that clear Fantastic! Will you be keeping any for showing/breeding, or is it too early to tell right now?

Nial, I am in love with the babies. At our last show, we sat next to a beautiful large, Bengal, named Magic. I had spoke to my husband and told him about the beauty of your Bengals, so it was exciting for him to see one up close. I believe he Granded in that show. They were very proud of him, and he was such a bold, beautiful boy, who just put out this regal presence. My husband found out what a Bengal was that day, and just loved Magic.

We have spoke in the past of adding a neutered/spayed pet quality Bengal, but being a breeder, and focusing on being a parent, wife, and loving our Raggies. When I saw you had 2 retireds, I went yelling to my husband..."Nial, has retired adults" He is always the voice of reason, letting me have an altered cat if I want, but he wanted to also make sure I realized that this kitten or cat would need lots of love and attention, and with us being busy with our own family and cat family, that it would be best to wait. Although I don't want to agree with him, he is right. However, I do believe some year in the future, I will have a Bengal, and if Nial is still breeding, I couldn't imagine one coming from anywhere else!!

Thank you sharing the picture, I hope you continue this thread, as I would love to see the babies grow up. Do you hope to keep a kitten out of this litter, if one catches your eye?

Congratulatons on the babies, and a happy Momma!!

Nial,

Quick question...the 2 silvers in the centre look like classics and the final one looks spotted? Am I right? Which would be more show-able? The classic or the spotted???

They are all spotted, no marbles (classic) in the bunch. When they are just a day old, and scrunched up against each other and mom, it can appear as if their spots all run together.
Either pattern is equally showable, so long as they meet the breed standards.
I generally don't show marbles very often, but I see lots of very nice ones at the shows.

Oh, they are so gorgeous!!!

All baby kittens are adorable, but these really are something special, even at just a day old!!!

I love the look on Gypsy's face, too! She looks so proud!

Thanks!

If Magic was a marble, I know that cat and his owner. He's a beauty!

I'd love for you to have one of our bengals someday. Hmmm, maybe we can do a trade. I've always wanted a big ragdoll.

....about keeping one of the kittens. My wife would keep all 3 if I wasn't "the voice of reason"! She's just excited about her first silvers. But, yes, we're always looking for at least one show cat per litter and we could use another female. A male would be out of the question no matter how good he looks. We've got 5 boys and that is our max.

I'll probably start a new thread, showing the silvers development. Maybe it'll be interesting for everyone to watch them grow.

Oh wow, they are just sooooooooooo cute!!!! Those little faces are too precious!!

And yes- Gypsy looks incredibly proud of herself It's great to see she enjoys being a mum!

I actually prefer the marbles to the spotted pattern - I loooooove all of your marbled beauties

They are BEAUTIFUL!! You and your wife must be absolutely thrilled. Your new thread idea showing their development would be wonderful.

I think I see a theme of husband's being the voice of reason. When I read FamilytimeRags message it felt like my house almost. I got my husband interested in Bengals by taking him on a tour of Nials former Kai Bengals website. He'd also probably agree to getting one now, but he's reminded me with our current pets, children, grandchildren, foster children, church work, etc., it wouldn't be fare to a new kitty. But I'm with you FamilytimeRags, I couldn't imagine getting a Bengal anywhere else then from Nial and Terry. (no intension on being mushy )

well done Gypsy too.

Thanks everyone for the comps!

I'll get a new silver baby thread started this weekend, with pics. They are all boys. 3 mini-Jacks. Should be a riot when they are 7 weeks old.
