Tuscany Action Shots Pic Heavy

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Tuscany has recently been spayed and is staying as one of our forever pets, as she is my favorite girl of all the breeders we've had over the past 12 years.

She's not so flashy, but she has excellent type and she's FUN! At 3 years old and a 5 litter mom this girl still plays like a kitten. I expect she'll be leaping like this as an old lady many years from now.

Holy cow those are awesome pictures! And I don't care what you say, she looks flashy to me . Then again, I don't know a thing about bengals really other than they're all beautiful . Pretty girl- glad to hear you're gonna keep her!

She's gorgeous Nial, and with all those kittens around Tuscany will never get old, because they'll bring out the kitten in her like Sophie and Jack did with Rosie

Thank-you Sam! And since you're a judge now, please allow me to tell you what I think her fine points are......

At 3 years old, her tummy is still whited....very hard to achieve in this breed!

Her head is wild, small rounded ears, perfect muzzle alignment and profile, big nocturnal eyes, puffy whisker pads.

She's got the build. Long body, super muscular with great structure.

I know when you become an all breed judge you will take into consideration that bengals are supposed to emulate the asian leopard cat and that a flashy coat is great but not the ultimate goal.
Bengal pelts now surpass anything the ALC has, so if we as breeders want to continue to breed for a domestic that looks like an ALC, we have to breed for structure as well as the flashy paint job.

Thanks for that Nial. I really want to embark on my Shorthair judging journey in the next 5 years. I'm starting to become more in tune with certain shorthair breeds now. I can pick out a top BSH and BUR from a mile off - but since IMO Bengals still have a lot of developing to do here, am finding it harder. I noticed her excellent facial type, just love that squareness to the muzzle - is that what they are meant to have? It wouldn't go astray on a MCO.

By whited do you mean that it hasn't developed colour - light brown?? It looks really stunning.

ETA: On second thought maybe it's those puffy whisker pads making her more square in the muzzle? They are great!

That's some seriously wild kitty action. She looks like a cheetah!

You must have a very good camera to catch all of that. Whenever I try to catch Aya doing something crazy she comes out looking like a kitty blur...

No, by "whited", I mean her belly. You will not see this in any other cat. Wild cats, tigers, leopards etc. have white belly's in contrast to their upper coat color. The Asian Leopard Cat has a white belly with black/brown spots, just like Tuscany has.

Sorry Nial...LOL when I said it I was referring to her belly. I make real good sense some times.. it's fascinating!

Wow! If anyone says Tuscany isn't beautiful, I'll personally come and kick their butt! She may not have big rosetting, but she is gorgeous. Her fur is so soft and shiny and she is muscular and just WILD looking. I her white belly, too, and I have seen your pictures of her kittens. They were all beautiful! I'm so happy you are keeping her. She will be so happy having a home with you forever, where she can play and leap with da bird with all those little kittens and stay young for all her years.

She's 3 years old ALREADY?!?

My how time flies like a Bengal!

She's kept a wonderful figure after having 5 litters - she's been a great momcat, and I know she'll be thrilled to spend the rest of her years just having fun.
