Check out this long hair bengal! How unique!!

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody-bengal owners and bengal lovers, check out this cat!







he's a purebred bengal but he has long hair which is a recessive gene. Long hair is not accepted in the breed standard. I fell in love with him as soon as I seen him. He is up for adoption on this website http://home.pacifier.com/~ltdltd/CAavailcats.html
He is just so gorgous and unique! He looks like a cross between a lion and a leopard to me! I wish I could adopt him but I have enough pet cats as it is. I hope he finds a good home!

There was a lady who used to come to TCS who had a long haired Bengal. Neither of it's parents were long haired though. I went to the adoption site, and it looks like none of us could adopt the cat, because they say it should either be an only cat, or he could possibly live with a submissive male. For someone who fits that criteria he sounds like a wonderful loving cat though.

Yes they say he should be an only cat I think though because he demands so much attention. maybe he would be ok in a home with kids that like to hold pets all the time or someone retired or that works from home that could give him all the attention he needs. He loves water and plays in the sink and bathtub.

He would be perfect for me, if I didn't have Simba and Shane. My poor sweet Snoopy who just went to the Rainbow Bridge last monday, was an extremely affectionate cat. He was my cuddle boy. Simba and Shane are much more independant. I love cats who wants lots of loving. I have a lot of love to give and Snoopy just got so much love from me, for almost 20 years. I wish I could adopt this boy. He's even in California, although Northern Calif is quite a ways form Los Angeles.

Hey you never know-maybe it would work out? But yeah it would be a long way to drive if it didn't. Are your other too boys pretty friendly or are they kinda agressive?
Sorry to hear about snoopy-that must have been very tough for you. My dad finally lost both of his cats after having them for more the 20 years.

Hope, you bring up such a good point and that's why I was so devastated over SiSi too...because she was so affectionate and loving. Saba is so much more independent and I miss the deep bonding. I guess I assumed all girl kitties would be like my SiSi.

Sorry to get off track, but Hope hit a nerve.

It has been really hard on me to lose my Snoopy. I got him when I was just a kid and have had him all of my adult life. Snoopy wasn't a Bengal, he was a Siamese, and he was the sweetest most loving and friendly cat you'd ever want to meet. I am honored that I was lucky enough to have had him in my life

Simba is very playful and active, not mean he just loves to run and pounce on Shane. Shane on the other hand, can be agressuve. For some reason he kind of feels like a father to Simba. He gets mad at Simba when he pounces on him, but basically just tries to get away. He's never once been agressive to Simba. However, I've seen Shane get pretty nasty with other cats, and dogs.
