They like to play with running water. Try teaching them fetch with a toy mouse or two. Truly too smart for their own good.
Their build, stance and even facial expression remind me a lot of Aya as a kitten.
We've got two Bengals that are within a couple of months of age of these kittens and they are full of energy as well. I think they'll get along pretty well together. The Bengals and JBT's actually all came from the same breeder. We went to see the breeder the first time expecting to pick out a JBT and the Bengals just started playing and running around with our 2yo daughter, so they came home with us first. When we were buying the Bengals, we put a deposit on a tri-color JBT as well though. Then these girls became available when someone who had a deposit on them had to back out, so we decided to get both of them.
The water shouldn't be a problem. Our boy Spot likes to get in the bathroom sink and sometimes even the shower, so these girls should fit right in.
