We are about 200 years behind the dog in developing different type and personality. That is all changing now - too fast for some and not fast enough for others.
The fact is that all cats have wild in their genetic tree - some closer than others.
We are seeing all the differences now - size, shape, coat type, and personality. It will, most likely, continue.
I love my Bengals, Brambles, and Peterbalds. Wouldn't have any other breeds. I suspect we all feel similar about the breed (or mixed breed) that we have.
On this one cat, I have made my feelings known. I LOVE the look of the cat, but I worry about 3 things:
Size difference in mating and delivering
Gestation periods being different
and the disturbing thought of declawing all of them.
Those things coupled with this person not planning to breed generations, but keep them at F1 and 2's is disturbing. That makes this very different than the Bengal and the Savannah (and a few others).
