Hi All,

We are looking for a new home for our Snow Bengal, Lenny. He is an amazing cat and we love him so much but there is one flaw with him... he is not good with tiny babies (Due to the Siamese in him)...and as we are having one in August... we have come to this sad stage where we need to find him a new home.

He is a very affectionate loving cat, but would prefer to be the only cat. We have a normal Bengal called Chester whom is a bit of a scaredy cat really, if you are giving Chester attention, Lenny runs in because he wants attention too and Chester runs away because it was a big step for him to come for attention in the first place. So a singular cat home would be preferable for him. He has mild alopecia on his arm, because he gets a bit nervous about a lack of attention due to Chester being there (Not that he has ever lacked any). Which is another reason he needs to be on his own.

He is an indoor cat, and always has been... he lacks a bit of common sense so would get killed very quickly if he were to go outside...that doesn't mean he doesn't try.

Amazing qualities of Lenny:

- He is so quirky and will amuse you for hours! He does this thing where he drinks his water, curls his tongue and then consistently sucks it for about 20 mins at a time making a tick tocking sound - it is absolutely hilarious!

He loves bags! any excuse to get into a bag! - he prefers bag carrying baskets...and so will you as he is strong enough to pull the door in on a normal cat carrier.

He loves to play...and will play for hours...with anything you allow him.

He will cuddle up next to you every evening....in your dressing gown, under the blankets next to you as you sleep if you allow him to.

You will find him in the most random places. Such as your stocking at christmas time - no need for fillers! Inside your sofa (Non reclinable is probably the best)

He is quite a quiet Bengal - Chester is very vocal but Lenny tends only to talk when necessary

When your upset he will spend alot of time with you, trying to comfort you.

He does respond when he is told off if you have a water spray - he doesn't like that..BUT he will get into the bath after you have finished with it or the shower if it is still dripping...or even try to turn the tap on for very fresh water...even if its in the bathroom.

He eats Royal canine 27 (Indoor) so he doesn't really have issues with fur balls. He likes a bit of fresh tuna...but doesn't eat too much really... he loves his water more than anything. You will know if he wants fresh water as he will sit by the water bowl and stare at you to indicate this is what he wants. He weighs 4.5 kilo's and will be such an amazing addition to your family!

As you can see, we really do love him so much, he is such an amazing cat, but we know it will be so much better for him to have a home on his own, and we cannot risk the life of our baby because he loves the idea of the milk so much (A natural trait of a Siamese...in case you were unaware...Snow Bengals are Siamese and Asian Leopard Cats)

You are welcome to come and see him - and I am sure you would fall in love with him just as much as we have...we are looking for a very loving home where he will get a lot of attention, be an indoor cat and have an amazing full life. We are based in East London.

Hello,

Me and my boyfriend are located in London as well and we're very interested. However, you state that you'd prefer him to be the only cat in the home, but to me it sounds like Lenny is just a very typical siamese personality(They are known for getting jealous, bonding to one person at a time, extremely attention seeking), and it seems to me from what you say this is a problem from Chester's side. From what you describe, he's a cat with very little confidence, so Lenny is too overbearing for him.

But I understand if that's how you want it to be, of course! ^^

We are interested in adding another boy to our family because we think it would be great for our Bengal Finn. He's a very gentle soul, but very active and loves to play, however Fionna doesn't like to play as much! :p

Let me know what you think.

The Siamese in a snow bengal (will be at least 4 generations removed from a Siamese) will not make him 'not good with tiny babies' nor does it make him 'love milk'.

I have never heard these about Siamese and i am a breeder of Tonkinese Which, in case you didn't know, are a cross between a Burmese and a Siamese.

I am unsure where you found this information and on what it is based but i can't be further from the truth. I have a breeder friend who breeds Siamese and has young children that were all born and brought up around Siamese. I am completely shocked that you think the Siamese in your Bengal will risk the life of your baby.... What a frightening myth to pass about as a reason to rehome your bengal.

Post has completely stunned me as to your reasons for wanting to rehome your cat :? :shock: :| :cry:

I agree lollo, very strange ideas about snow Bengals here. I have two seal lynx Bengals (Siamese gene) and neither of them ever posed a threat to my children or showed any interest in either breast or formula milk when my daughter was tiny.

I just find it so odd. Thought I'd heard all the mis-information about some breeds.

It is a shame because some people might now think they have to get rid of their snow Bengal as soon as they get pregnant.

Does make me wonder what the real reason for the rehome is seeing as they are keeping one Bengal.
