Hi! I am brand new here and was wondering if I might be able to get some help with something.

Back in July, I adopted a kitten from a local rescue agency, and loved her markings from the beginning. Her mother was pure black, and her sister had super short sleek fur and she was covered in spots. My little girl Emma, is a medium length tabby with spots all over her side and tummy.

I was talking to my boss at work, and we both think she may bave some Bengal in her. I have always loved them, and am so excited over the possability of this being true.
I don't know how to post pictures on here, but I was wondering if I could and see what you guys think?

I hoep this works... and I'll try to get better pictures, she is very active, so it's hard to get a good picture

Hi
wow what a pretty girl you have, she is stunning. I can't say if she has bengal in her (experts on here will help) but I think she sounds full of fun and you really adore her. You are a lucky pair to have found each other.

Thank you so much for your replies!
I'll try to get a good profile shot of her to post, the side of her face is also what makes me think she might have a little bit in her, the shape of her head.

she is very vocal and energetic. Always wanting to chew things and play with things. I am scared for our christmas tree, and we're hesitating to put it out this year
lol
Any suggestions?

yes.....don't! If you have to make sure it is not a real one some can cause illness, it just has to be very sturdy and if you can fixed to something so it can't fall down, shatter proof baubles, oh yes and no chocolate that is very toxic to cat.....hmmm make sure the treee is in a room where the cat does not go without you....hmmm and a sense of humour, cause you will need it

hi there, yes emma definately has distinctive bengal markings & a strong chin strap & a bengal-type head, so it's pretty safe to say daddy was probably a bengal :wink:

take a look at this link, where we were recently discussing christmas trees. http://www.bengalcatforums.com/forums/v ... sc&start=0

Thanks for the tips! I'll check out that post.

I know all about the no chocolate thing... I am very careful about my babies... 8)

oh, and we have a fake one thankfully. We live in a new condo building, and aren't allowed real ones

I tried orange peel last year, and it worked amazingly well until it dried out. Last year, we tried attaching some fine wire mesh to the bottom layer of branches so my little boy couldn't go up the middle of the tree. He just ran from one end of the room and jumped into the side of the tree instead
