Thanks for you compliments on my girl Lorraine, I don't want her to be left behind. Yes she is all grown up and a decent size girl now. I didn't realize how big she really is until we brought in mochi. There is a HUGE difference lol.


I don't think I've seen any recent pictures of her for a while. I love her colouring. I really love that warm look! I'm sure she'll be loving having a little brother to look after soon enough. I find girls can be more adapting than boys. How old is BB now?

Max is 7.5. Can't believe it. He has slowed down loads is last year! Sleeps a lot... Still has 'kitten Max' moments though. Not sure how he is going to cope with a baby! Guess we will find out in a few months time (I'm 20 weeks now! Can you believe it!).

I am super happy that things are going so well right from the get-go! I know this one will never replace Jasper, but you've selected the best kitty. He's fitting right in and everyone is happy at this point! YAY!!!!

Thank you Lorraine, she is a beautiful girl but I am a little biased lol. BB just turned 3 in January but she is still a VERY active girl. She has her moments that a crazier than most but she is always up for playing. I think she will adapt just fine, we have allowed them to see each other and she grumbles and fussed a little but nothing like she did with Jasper. We plan on introducing them this weekend.

I think Max will be fine with the baby, or at least I hope so. Cats can be strange sometimes to say the least. I would think after a little time all will be good. If he has calmed down and is lazy most of the time I don't think it will be a problem! 20 weeks :mrgreen: that's so exciting and such a great point to be at!

Thank you Sherry, he does seem to be fitting in really well. He has been brought up very well and I couldn't be happier with how our breeder raised him. He is well worth the wait and long travel to get him! I will keep everyone updated with his progress and BB as well.

Well it hasn't technically been a week yet but by observing my kitties behavior and their constant screaming to get to each other we finally introduced BB to Mochi. They have seen each other and have been close for a few seconds but today I opened the door and just sat back to observe. Obviously I was prepared for things to go bad but I stayed calm and let them do their thing. Within 12 hours this is what happened.
Image
BB had to be up higher than Mochi as they played in the tunnel. She would bat at him while he was in it and the she decided to pounce. I was holding my breath lol and it scared Mochi half to death. They soon took off down the hall way chasing each other like crazy cats.
Image
Mochi was still unsure how to react. He was a little startled by her big butt pouncing on him but he got the hang of it.
Image
After about 2 hours non stop they both were ready for a nap. BB of course got in my lap like she always does and started kneading to settle down. To my amazement Mochi joined her and she allowed him. The first time in my life I have had 2 cats happily sleeping on me. I have to say I felt pretty special.
Image
I have to say their play was very worrying at first because I have never seen BB play like that. She used to run with Jasper and they would roll around a little and be done. BB and Mochi are in full on attack mode and it's kinda rough. I had to get on YouTube to watch other cats that were playing to make sure they weren't actually fighting. There wasn't any hissing or crying out, no flat ears (other than the beginning when he was unsure) and nothing overly aggressive. They would take turns and he would attack her and then she would attack him. I just hope they continue to get along this well. I'm keeping my fingers crossed everything else is smooth sailing.
Just one more pic for cuteness.
Image

ETA: sorry for the screen shots that's the only way I know how to post pics from my phone. And also thanks for reading my book :mrgreen: I'm proud of my babies and you all are the only ones that understand

Aww, such great pictures! I think you can calm down a little bit now! LOL. Looks like Mochi and BB will be best of buddies, especially as Mochi grows and gets to a much larger size! Oh happy day!

Haha oh goodness Lollo, I cried too and my husband thought it was hilarious! It's an emotional thing :wink: they actually both slept with me last night curled up on my side. I am a proud furbaby Mom.

I have calmed down a little but I will probably get nervous again when he hits maturity. Hopefully BB establishes her pecking order firmly and he never decides to challenge it. She put her foot down last night when I was sitting in the floor petting her and he decided it was his turn. She let out a sound that wasn't too nice but he didn't push it. When she was done with me she went over and was grooming him. I'm excited to see how they will play when he is actually big enough to play with her. Right now it's a little unfair she is 12 pounds and he is 3

They look so good together. Mochi has such striking markings for a kitten, and of course BB has the prettiest eyes. It looks like you are in store for fun times ahead.

Mochi's colouring is just beautiful! It reminds me of Luna's a bit with the more tawny background. I'm happy they are getting along,

Thank you all! I am proud of both of them they are both beautiful babies. Mochi's markings are a bonus, I wasn't expecting him to be as stunning as he is. The breeder picked him based on his personality and it just so happened he is a handsome guy too. They have had another rambunctious day and Mochi is now asleep in the dogs kennel :rolleyes: and BB is sleeping with my son. They are both completely out and didn't even beg for their dinner. I had to wake them both up to come eat. That's how you know your bengals are successfully drained of energy.
