Hello everyone! Ok so I'm going to share photos of my two gorgeous babies and will update as I go along, they grow so quick and they are really coming into their own.

A little introduction: Kira is my cautious and shy marbled bengal - she's taking a little longer to trust and let me touch her but she's starting to relax a bit and is very loving and sweet once she realises you aren't a threat. She likes to climb everything already and I've found her in the strangest places thinking "How the hell did you get up there??". Kira doesn't make a peep by the way.. Not one chirp or meow even when I first got her!

Nala is my rosette girl and is very boisterous and loud, she's the kitten that comes to me for the cuddles and belly rubs.. She's the one finding herself in sticky situations and will climb into any small cubby hole or hideaway she can find. She's adorable and very loving.

The two get on very well so far and aside from a couple of accidents on the sofa have been as good as gold since and are growing and becoming friendlier every day.

Nala and Kira are very pretty baby girls. Are they from the same litter?

Thank you :-) and yes they are from the same litter. Nala was the only rosette whilst the rest were marbles.

Gorgeous! It's a shame they grow so quickly though! They change so much in the first few months as they gain confidence. That's when the fun and games really start :lol: I'm sure Kira will find her voice - Hendrix was the quiet one when they first arrived and Jagger would make your ears bleed. Now, Hendrix literally doesn't shut up and Jagger only meows when he wants a cuddle!

They are gorgeous!!!! And that loud purr of Nala's. I'm surprised you couldn't hear her purring through the cabinet when she was lost!!!

Nice pictures, and I like the video also. It will be interesting to see how Kira develops. Some of the most affectionate cats that I've had, have been the "slow starters", the ones where it takes a little more (or a lot more) to overcome the trust barrier 100%, but once you do...oh boy, you are definitely theirs.

Lol sherry she was not in her purring phase then... She was still hissing and running if you came near her. It was actually my step son who managed to get her to relax first. He's not a cat person at all but took to them immediately and now we call him the cat whisperer! He just went straight over to her and started stroking her whilst we looked on in amazement.. After that she was fine.

Brian, yes Kira seems to be most relaxed around me and will let me stroke her if she's up on the tree. I just think she's a lot more cautious which isn't a bad thing.. I also think she was not properly socialised since the breeder kept them outside in a cattery and I got the vibe that the marbles were not seen as often as the rosettes. She basically said to me that she was selling marbles for less because it's not a desirable coat to her. Frankly when I saw Kira I fell in love instantly and I find her coat to be stunning. But it makes sense with her behaviour around people.. She simply wasn't held or played with.. Whilst Nala obviously was...
