Well, Prowler is ultimately going to be a pet. He's going to someone who previously purchased a bengal from us. There has been some discussion about showing him as an alter, which is fine with me based on his performance so far.
Arctic Cowboy has always been on the "retain for showing/breeding" list for us. He's not disappointed us at all...he's definitely a keeper. His color is called seal mink and I'm very fond of it too. It's very striking and the judges are starting to give these bengals some recognition if they meet all the other standards.
Cosmic has also always been on the retain list. We're keeping her for breeding and she's such a sweet girl...we had to show her. She has some remarkable features, but right now her size is limiting her success against the bigger robust boys. Time will tell if she'll be a contender for titles.
The thing I love about these 3 kittens, is that they are all fearless and completely trusting. For them everything new is an adventure, something to be conquered and if a human being is along for the fun....more the better.
All three of these bengals acted like the noisy show hall was their second home. This is a nice change of pace for me, because my primary show cat last year was a real grump at the shows. He tolerated it, but wasn't enthused. I'm pleased to have some happy campers this show year.
