This picture is such a classic Bengal look IMO. When Takoda and Magnum have this exact look, it is serious I am hunter you are prey play time.


As always beautiful shots!!

Ilovemykitty - fortunately Nikita doesn't ambush me, just her toys. She pounced on me once from ambush (onto my back) and I really freaked out which freaked her out and it hasn't happened again. Fortunately. I've got scars on my back from when that happened.

snosrap5 - Yep, puffed whisker pads, whiskers forward, ears forward and that intense stare. It's a bengal in Hunting Mode.

angelkitty - thanks!

Here are a few new photos:

Catnaps are Serious Business



Baskets need to be jumped into



An attempt at a "clean" portrait, i.e with no clutter in the background.

What's up with the whisker pad on her right cheek (the right looking at the photo). See how it looks kinda spiky? Is that because she's pushing her whiskers forward or something?

It's because there's no hair in a small circle at the base of each whisker. I think it's that way with all cats. Then because the whiskers are growing in a row and the whisker pad is curved the edge there on her whiskerpad looks spiky because you have a line with full hair and then a line with lots of hairless spots where the whiskers grow out. There is hair between the whisker circles but at that angle it doesn't show.

Wow that camera takes incredible pictures! And her eyes are so pretty! All I have is a little Nikon Coolpix.

Huh, how about that! I'm going to have to go and try and annoy my girls from side on to see if their whiskers do that

It looks like you're just pulling on her whiskers or something

Ok, conveniently Stumpy just came up for a pat, so I made her sit still while I checked out her whiskers And yes, she has the same, but they're less pronounced than Nikita - I think Nikita's are just in a much straighter line, and has more pronounced whisker pads.

A backlit portrait


Looking pretty at the sink


This one shows off her shoulder and back markings quite well.


A dainty paw going after the toy (there was a bit of roast beef in the sink as well for her to fish out.


Afterwards paws must be cleaned

Thanks folks! I really enjoy all your comments.

I just got Da Bird! for Nikita. I've been looking for it here in the UK but not found it so I gave up and ordered it off ebay and omg! It's the best cat toy ever. She loves it and it's so much fun playing with her.

It's funny though she delayed me getting it. I wasn't in when the postman came with it so they left a note with the usual "You weren't in, please pick up your parcel at Post Office X". Nikita took that note to be a toy and batted it under a closet in the hallway so I didn't see it until over a week later when I was cleaning. Fortunately it wasn't too late though and the PO still had it

Anyway photos!

Oh my - she is beautiful.....just stunning. I don't think i've ever seen a Bengal so dark.

My Bastet is a marbled Bengal that I adopted from the ASPCA - she and her littermates were seized by the police during a drug bust....i've always wondered if she didn't get a bit in her systme first...always bouncing off the walls and chasing invisible monsters!!! Anyways, Basty has me completely hooked on the breed, I would love to have a spotted one someday...especially if she were as pretty as Nikita!!!


Here's my girl - although my photo skills do not even come close to yours...i just use a cheap point and shoot digital
