More of Piglet's family! Check out these odd markings!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have brought home 6 more of Piglet's relatives. Two of them jumped into her cage with her...black boy Toby, and little striped boy Inchy. I have never seen markings like on Inchy...stripes right down the backbone, and vivid swirls elsewhere!

This is cute, he was so scared he crawled on top of Piglet! He got down right away, so the tiny babies aren't squished.


I don't have another room to put the newbies in, and none of them have any vaccinations, so they can't be loose in my home. Some are rather skittish, too, so they need to be confined!

Gorgeous! I do so enjoy seeing your precious fosters!

Thanks!

I have never seen such stripes down the back of a kitty! The owner kept saying they had bengally stripes, but I don't know what it looks like?!? They certainly are unusual!

Wow! He sure is unusual... can't wait to see what his coat looks like in a few months.

His coat certainly does remind me of a marbled bengal. Here's my bengal Frankie, so you can kinda compare...

Aww, he is lovely - i do have a soft spot for tabbies. But no, I have never seen markings like that.

Both Frankie and the little kitten have beautiful markings. I love the Bengal pattern. Is it usual for one kitten in a litter to have these markings?

Those kitties are precious! Love the markings.

Those are really beautiful markings.

I could never be a foster parent. I would never want them to leave!
It's great that there are people out there like you.

Two of the kittens actually have those markings...I wonder if that is unique to bengals? The original owner kept saying one of the daddy cats had bengal type markings...but so many people say that and only have a moggie brown tabby, that I didn't pay it much attention.

I'll PM one of the bengal breeders! Thanks, Chaos, Frankie is STUNNING!

Thanks to Solarity Bengals, I know that bengals were bred with american shorthairs to bring out the classic tabby pattern, which originated in one region. Check out the second kitty down!

Thanks! I'll give him an admiration pat to pass on the compliment to him.

Piglet's family should have no problems finding good homes. They are beautiful kittens.

I certainly hope so! They are settling in nicely. Today I will try to pick up the last 2-3 kittens. They have to be taken by Monday, or Animal Control will take them all, and I really don't think they will give them any time to settle or tame.

This leaves the original owner with 6-7 cats that will be taken by animal control. I feel so bad for her!
