Zeus is Stunning... and I know you're so anxious you can hardly stand yourself.

My girls love the pompom type balls, like Zeus is carrying in that photo.

Also... My breeder had some photos of her cats playing with a rabbit pelt. I made the investment, and got one off e-bay. Not only do my bengal girls like to carry it around (I never know where I will find it next) but the boys will often lay on it, wherever the girls "left it last". I thought they would tear it up -- but so far, they haven't. They just proudly carry it around.

Also I got a few of the little catnip toys that are sewn into animal shapes. One is the shape of a "puppy" and that seems to be their favorite of that type of toy. They carry it around, wash it, then tuck it up against their tummy and sleep with it.

MY favorite toys are the interactive type feather or leather teaser on a string attached to a little pole. I still get wounded, occasionally when they jump on me trying to catch it, midair... but I love their vitality and playfulness. They like the mylar and feather ones, too... but those rarely last more than a couple of "play" sessions. (And YES, I have a dresser drawer that I keep these in so they can't destroy them when I'm not looking.) They have LEARNED the sound of that drawer opening, and I have a cat stampede when I go to get a toy for "play time". :)

I have another one that's into tug-of-war, my Ria has quite a grip! It's very difficult to get pictures of her- I try to get her to look at the toy, then she grabs it and I have quite a time getting it back from her! Of course, she thinks my hair is a toy, too, so we're going to work on that...

Golden Girl is getting very good at riding around draped over my shoulder. She's so pretty, I feel honored when she licks my nose :rolleyes: Her breeder came over the other day, to visit and check out the kittens, and once again said "I can't beleive I sold you that cat!"

All bengals are beautiful in my eyes, though. When I got my first in 2001 (after waiting a year... argh!) I never expected them to bring so much more depth and character into my life. Even my older girl who isn't very brightly colored amazes me with how beautiful she is. Add that to the fact that Bengals have such wonderful, quirky personalities, and you've got the best cats in the world, at least to me!
