I get the same. Some have PM'd me on another site saying how stupid I am paying out hundreds for a hybrid when I can get a kitten from a rescue :shock:


In my case I'm not even paying anything for him! He is a gift from Yuki's breeder, and I am thankful for it. :)

Well, I DID pay for shipping... :lol:


:D :D

What a brilliant gift.

Hehe, I do like having my two little rescue gals, and if something unfortunate happened to them, I think I'd go the rescue route again.

Sasami, who is on my desk in front of my monitor as I type this:
What she is holding is a pressed catnip ball.

Kinomi:

I hope they like the new boy! I know Kinomi will. :)

Sasami is a tougher sell...

There may be some truth in that. Yuki's oncologist and another vet he saw before then both said that a lot of purebred breeds can be more likely to not be able to fight off some illnesses, or something to that effect. I haven't done a lot of reading about it myself.

I've lost non-purebred breeds to illnesses too though... including FeLV (which she had tested negative for as a kitten, and was also vaccinated against) and FIP. :(

Yes! Very much so! This little guy's grandfather (Yuki's half brother) is even a supreme grand champion. She really wasn't under any obligation at all to give him to me, so it was very generous of her. :)

It's funny... the little blue is almost seven years old, and is so tiny! She actually torments the poor tortie, who is really skittish.

The tortie is the mothering type though, so I can see her getting along with the kitten very well. She and Yuki often played together. :)

The grey likes people much more than other cats, so she is going to be grumpy to the new kitten, but I think the kitten will at least even out my little kitty household a bit.

Whenever Sami chased Nomi, Yuki would chase Sami and make her stop. ;)

I have always had rescue cats, a couple of years ago I had 5 rescue cats, including ferals, and they were all absolutely wonderful and I miss them very much (ex kept them all :( )but I have to say after having Missy I will always have a bengal, they are just enchanting. My OH got Missy for me as a birthday present, as I was really missing my cats, but Missy is just brilliant! (as are my boys of course)

Sasami is a weird one when it comes to foods. :)

I really have to fight her away in the mornings when I'm making coffee because she LOVES coffee grounds... and will also try to sneak drinks from my cup.

Aw she's so sweet, I have a real thing about gray cats, our family cat mogwai was gray, he passed away 2 years ago, aged 24, bless him.

I have never known a cat like coffee before!!!

Just make sure missy doesn't learn from her example. The last thing you want is a young bengal on a caffiene high!

Oh dear... he'd be beyond impossible then!

I'm pretty careful with Sasami though. She never gets more than a lick! :lol:

Funnily enough, my old Tonkinese boy, Mr Ko, likes a cup of coffee as well. He will sit at my side very quietly whilst I drink my coffee until just a little is left for him. It has to be at a certain temperature, lukewarm, and he takes it with milk, no sugar :D
