I am beginning the process of attempting to re-home a young male Bengal from the North East of England, Newcastle in particular.

I have currently own two Bengals, male and female and unfortunately due to a relationship breakup and the subsequent sale of a property it has affected future plans for their care. The female will ultimately live with my ex no problems. The Male – called Boris, I feel wouldn’t be manageable in such changing circumstances.

A little about Boris…… Boris is a well adjusted indoor cat a little over 2 years old. He is on the small size (smaller than my female), neutered and with defined rosetted leopard like spots. He craves human contact and needs regular good quality interaction and stimulation. Boris is very much a lap cat in his downtime, he accepts being handled and medicated very well, is 100% trusting of humans and displays so much happiness upon your return home and when interacting with you. When he’s not resting he’s constantly on the go exploring and trying to get in among the centre of where he perceives the action to be. He can get pent up with so much energy that he can get frustrated sometimes, dashes around at high speed, where he is more mischievous. But his temperament is good. I’ve never heard him hiss to my best recollection and although he can play rough he has never shown any hostile aggression in his life. He’s generally been a healthy cat although like some Bengals his stomach needs the right input. He’s had a bout of Colitis before and he’s intolerant of lower grade cat food containing pulped corn, which give him diarrhea. I’ve bought higher quality Royal Canin or Purina in large scale 10kg amount to make savings and he’s fine and healthy with this. One such large bag keeps both my cats going for 2 and half months for e.g.
In summary, he is harder work than the average cat as he has so much energy, is persistent, very vocal and follows you frequently in his waking hours. He’s a cat that won’t just sit in the background. Although it’s part of his personality, it is possible he will calm down more over the next 24 months as he ages.

The house I currently live in accommodates him well for size with a long corridor to have him chase things to burn off his energy. I give him supervised yard visits (to stop him scaling the walls) and have to make sure he is not on his own for more than 24 hours. I’ve had to admit some sad home truths to myself, that it will not be practical or in his best interests to keep him with me as I’m just not going to be able to provide such an environment in size or with ownership of a property or the level of care into the near term future.

It will break my heart to lose him as he is like a best mate as much as a pet, which is why I am both anxious and keen in equal measures to make sure he moves to a really good quality home that is appropriate for him. As painful as it will be, I would have some peace of mind if I could find him a home with someone who can give him the time he would benefit from, maybe someone who is familiar with Bengals, in particularly who is knowledge or experienced with rambunctious males and in an ideal world, even have somewhere outside he could access safely.

Apologies for the long post, I just wanted to try and solicit the most appropriate responses possible so I can try and get the best possible future of the little guy.

P.S I’m happy to attempt travel if it means accessing the best new home.
Andrew

Unfortunatly I am to far away to get him! I live in the US! But there has been a number of post over the last several months and I have noticed the ones that are sucessful have posted pictures of their pets they are wanting to rehome! So if you can I would post some pictures of him and go from there! You have a great post about your boy and I am so sorry for the situation you are in and admire that you are putting his best interest above all else! Good luck with everything and I sincerly hope you find a great home for him, I am sure you will!

Hi i live in the north east in a small rural village near stockton on tees. I am interested in Bengals and i am looking for a new addition to the family, i have no children and live with my partner. I dont know if we would be suitable, as we have never had a bengal before, and also we already have 3 cats (2 orientals girls and 1 siamese boy). Perhaps you can tell me whether we might be suitable. Thanks

Hi Andrew, my name is Ami, I am a student veterinary nurse(soon to be qualified) and am really interested in your Bengal Boris. I live in Eastbourne with my family, In a large house with a large garden for safe outdoor access. I already own 2 Bengals, one male, Jenson who is very similar in temperament to how you describe Boris, and also a quiet female Bengal, Indi who generally keeps to herself. If you are interested my number is 07515854780, and if possible would you be Able to post a picture of Boris? We would be happy to travel if necessary or if you would like to see where we live we could pay your travel costs. Look forward to hearing from you.
