Hi - I have a 1 1/2 yr. old male Bengal that needs to be rehomed.
The problem is that he needs to go with someone who knows lots about Bengals and maybe even has another one. He does not get along with my one Aby, to the point that he has caused bites and infections. Ugh.
There would be no cost. I live on the east coast, in VT.
If you are interested, please email.
P. S. The one rule of thumb that I use is that if you cannot afford to buy the cat, then you probably cannot afford to keep it either. Much like a car. I would never be able to afford a Mercedes, cause I cannot afford the up keep. In many ways, the same is true for cats. The more expensive the more likely they will need constant medical attention and up keep. I am not an authority on this by the way!
I have 2 Siamese and a Persian, and they are fairly expensive cats. I can afford to take care of my cats, but let's face it. $2000 is a lot of money to pay when you're a working girl on a medium income, living in an expensive city, like Los Angeles.
My one cat, Snoopy is 17, almost 18 years old. My other Siamese is 6 and my Persain is only 2.
I have never owned a Bengal, but I adore them, and want to own one. I wouldn't want a cat who has problems with other cats, though. My 6 Year old Siamese is not too socialable either. He likes my Senior cat, I think, only because the the Senior was here before him. He doesn't like the Persian, although he doesn't hurt him, he does have the Persian cautious of him, and very careful not to tread too closely, if you know what I mean.
I've heard Bengals aren't much more difficult than a Siamese, and I love Siamese because of their personalities. Some people think they are mean cats, but I could never find a sweeter more loving cat that my Old guy. The younger one is pretty tempermental, but I love him as well.
What is it about Bengals, that people think are so hard to deal with. I keep hearing that you should have already had experience with Bengals. What is so difficult about them?
