Hi folks

I'm James and last Friday I collected our first bengal . My family has kept cats since I was born and always 2 x brother Tom cats . When I built my own house and moved out from the family home we had 6 years without a cat. Having always wanted a bengal I decided to take the plunge when a friend had a bengal for sale . We were a little worried about introducing it to our 2 golden retrievers but after a few days he was full of mischief and charisma and decided while I was feeding the dogs in our kitchen on the other side of the baby gates that he would sneak through and join them for food . We also have 3 young children ages 6 2 and 20 months, the 6 year old absolutely loves to cuddle into the cat

So here he is ...meet Rocco

Welcome on board James. So glad Rocco has slotted straight into your family.
Your picture didn't seem to upload though. Look forward to seeing him.

Welcome, James. You may have had cats previously, but you never had a bengal and it is a whole new experience. You will have adventure after adventure. Happy he has settled in so well. I will say, it is easier when you have children who can occupy Rocco when he insists on attention! Enjoy, enjoy!

He is so cute and caring already and is absolutely crazy at night when the kids go to bed and I start playing with his toys with him.
I wanted a bengal for a long time and wanted one with papers etc but this guy came available from a friend and I could not say no to his wee face . I had to have him so i drove 250 miles and collected him .

First few nights he was shy , I followed tips I used with my other cats when I got them as kittens . I placed his bed , litter tray , water and food in my bedroom ensuite which is a nice comfortable temperature and out of the way of the dogs and children . By the first morning he was exploring his new house and we made sure the dogs did not frighten him or even sniff him out . We let Rocco do things at his own pace . On day 3 I was feeding the dogs on the on the other side of the kitchen baby gates when Rocco decided to sneak through the bars and investigate the dogs and there food . Usually he would sit and watch at the gate as if he knows he is safe that the dogs can't get to him . Now 6 days later he and the dogs will roam the house together and our youngest dog Lucy likes to watch him play with his toys and even puts a wee paw out to try and grab his toys that he is playing with

Just bought this, it was expensive but reviews say they are very sturdy and the quality looks great and will keep him entertained hopefully with all the different platforms and beds
