I have a one and a half year old, female Bengal (F5) named Anna. She is curious, confident, playful, active and very intelligent. She talks to me in a remarkable range of chirps, trills, chuffs and meows.
Anna's favorite game is sloshing and dumping her water bowl (it's now in the bathtub). She's fascinated by watching the water run down the drain and tries to catch it with a paw.
She has learned to open drawers and I never know what I'll find her getting into.
She gets along great with my eleven year old male cat. They play together and sleep together. They both sleep with me at night.
Her pelt is soft, sleek and sheds very little. Even though she is a small cat and weighs all of eight pounds she feels very solid when I pick her up.
She eats a combination of Blue Spa Turkey and Brown Rice and wet food twice a day. She has never had any tummy issues, but I have heard of Bengals that do.
The only thing I can think of that would be better than one Bengal is having two. I adore this little girl.
Please be aware that there are some problems in the breed with HCM (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy) a genetic heart problem. I would ask any breeder you talk to if they test for this.
