Bengal craziness (or cat craziness in general)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering if males quiet down with age or if they stay crazy

Mambo is now 7 months old and boy is he wild when we play! Jumping up and bodyslamming the wall, jumping gracefully but landing on his side, running like crazy across the floor and banging his head strait into the wall/couch or other furniture (ouch!). Sometimes he gets so excited that he starts panting after 10 minutes of playing!

Sheeba...not as crazy as him

Did you experience similar things with your cats? I'm guessing it will stay like this for a period of time or until he's over his teenage stage.

I don't have any experience with Bengals but I've noticed that my boys are calming down more and more as they get older... the boys who are over a year are sooooooo much calmer than the ones who are under a year old.

Oci's are a crazy active breed too, my oldest is 13 months and hasn't slowed down a bit

I have girls and they're still young, about 7 months, but I have a feeling they're gonna keep the bengal craziness for a loooong time.

they're pretty silly

I dont have bengals but my Piston is a complete nutter. he races round the house like he is being chased by a feral dog. I have wooden floors so he slides around corners and hits walls. He is about 8 months old.

Active breeds tend to stay active well into adulthood, for me that's all part of the charm My boys are all young adults between 1 and 2 years old, active breeds (2 Orientals & 1 Cornie/moggie cross) and they were running around like kittens this morning, sliding across the floor, knocking things over, and at one point I had 2 cats slam into my legs at the same time as they misjudged their timing going round the corner

I find it difficult to imagine that any cat could be more nutty and hyper than my lot, but if there is one it's the Bengal. Don't expect calm in the near future!

yep my little boy is just over 18 months and he runs around like a nut! he's just a domestic short hair black cat. Sometimes he just starts running...and jumping all over the place...I just watch and go..hmm what do you see?
yesterday he jumped over my little girl...(she's around the same age)

That's exactly what Mambo does too!

Max's first birthday is next week (the 19th) and he's a true Tigger. Here's a moment from his early evening when I get home from work:

Bouncey, bouncey, bouncey, boing, boing, boing, CRASH! Gallop, gallop, gallop, "Ow, ow, OW-WOW WOW!" Gallop, gallop, gallop, roll over, show belly, purrrr, purrrr, purrrr, BOING!

Leap, stop, look around, "Reow!" jump and fly through the air, hit the floor running, gallop, gallop, gallop, skid to a stop CRASH! Pounce on Ferris and wrestle him to the floor. Run to food dish, take a couple of bites, gallop, gallop, gallop, FLY!

And that's just within 90 seconds.

I was waiting to hear from you Betsy, as I think your Max may be a bit more nutty than Mambo

Good to know that it's not just our house. This morning Sheeba leaped at least 6 feet up in the air to avoid being wrestled to the ground by Mambo!
