Hi all, new to the forum. I'm getting my two new family members in a few days time and have been reading lots. I've read that rib stripes is not desirable and was wondering if my cat has them? I dont actually 'care' either way as I think they are gorgeous kittens and have no interest in showing them. But I am curious.

What do you think?

Here's the boy...

...and the girl...

I don't see where ribbed sides are a bad thing -- I see that in a lot of bengals and even Raiden's grandfather -- Gogees Warpaint, a Supreme Grand Champion has them, so I'm not sure it takes points off in a cat show. Regardless, you have gorgeous kittens arriving. The contrast is amazing and will get even more so as they grow.

I was curious about this as well, and when I did a google search to see what some winning show bengals looked like, most of them had rib bars. I think it's not desirable because the ALC doesn't have them, but breeders are having a tough time getting rid of them.

Also, I saw your pics in the gallery and didn't even notice the stripes until you pointed them out, no big deal.

Yeah, I agree. Desirable or not, I actually quite like em. I think it makes the cat look sort of half tiger, half leopard. Just looks cool to my untrained eyes. :)

They are beautiful aren't they? :)

Though the pictures are a bit off to be honest. They are the breeders pics and they are a bit over exposed - or possibly someone has run em through a contrast filter in photoshop or something. In real life the background colour is more brownish. Though the markings on both of them are very dark. I dont know if they will develop more obvious rosettes as they age, or if they will stay quite solid? The mum is a rosetted charcoal - absolutely gorgeous. I haven't seen one before. She had this whole 'panther' thing going on with very dark rosettes on a very dark background. Subtle, but stunning. Dad cat is a brown rosetted, grand champion. He's a big fella.

Some more pics (I cant stop looking at them :D )

The boy....

The girl (what a cute face)...

The breeder was going to keep the girl for breeding as she thought she might be a carrier for the charcoal gene, but it was both or none, so I won. :D
