Hi found this post in a different section, instructions are from webby007

"Hi there,
you will need to upload the photos to some other web server, something like www.flickr.com

Then you right-mouse click on the image and select "copy image location (that's for Firefox users).

In Internet Explorer - right-mouse click on the image and then select the bottom option that says "properties". Then there will be a line in the popup window that says "address" which is followed by the URL.

You highlight the URL and then press Ctrl + C on your keyboard to copy the URL.

Then go to the post in the Bengal forums, press Ctrl + V to insert the url of your picture.

The URL must be enclosed in this


Code:

[ img]http://www.flickr.com/blabla/1234.jpg[/img ] (without the spaces)



Then it will be displayed as an image in here Wink

Try it..."


Hope this helps

Naomi

Hello - welcome to the forum!

There's a woman where I work that has a snow Bengal, she was given it by her sister who emigrated to Australia and claimed that Bengals aren't allowed over there? Is there any truth to that?

Hi,

I think that the breeder I got my boys from exports to Oz so this doesn't sound likely......but you never know ;-)

I guess it could be some years ago, no idea how long she's had said Bengal..... so maybe it was true at some point?

Hi Gavin,

Perhaps the Bengal she meant was less than 5th generation. As it seems to be OK to have a Bengal in Australia, but not to import a foundation cat or a fourth generation Bengal.

As from the government website it states:-

"Under the legislation of Environment Australia domestic/non-domestic animal hybrids eg bengal cats or wolf crosses are not eligible for import, unless they are proven to be 5th generation or more away from any pure-bred non-domestic ancestor. Please contact Wildlife Permits and Enforcement Section, Environment Australia on 02 6274 1111 for further information."

I also know UK breeders have exported to Australia and a UK breeder who has recently imported a cat from Australia

and

from her web site
"Jagsun Bengals recognised as the Australian founder of the Bengal Breed was founded in 1994. "

I think your colleague must have meant early generation cats. I don't know however if there are any home-grown foundation cats, though in Australia.

Regards

Elsa

What do you do about spiders over there? There's nothing our Bengals like better than munching on some unsuspecting spiders :lol: They would get quite a surprise if they tried that on a redback I'd imagine :shock:
