If you had to choose between these 2 kittens, by markings, which would you choose? Temperament is very outgoing with both. The lighter one is female and the darker is male.

Hard choice. I have one that's like the left one but I also want one the color of the right. Are you planning to show the cat?

I don't think I could choose between them. The coloring and markings on both are beautiful. You may just have to decide if you want a little boy or a little girl.

I told my husband I want both! I don't care male or female. I wish I could tell by looking at them now, what they will look like grown up. :biggrin:

The male kitten has better contrast but the female will likely have a more clear background color. The male also has better rosettes imo. My vote would be for BOTH :wink:

I agree! They look very very similar to our boy and girl who are now 7 months old. They have both become more georgeous by the day, and they are great buddies together. We are really pleased we ended up taking both of them. Here's a couple of recent pictures

Wow! Beautiful. It really looks like the same kittens all grown up!! Doesn't make it easier to choose. I don't think we can afford to get both :cry:

Bobkat, your kitties are just so gorgeous!!!! If I had gotten Raiden has a kitten, I would have gladly taken a sibling just so he would have the company. He's always been an only cat and he doesn't like any of the ones we meet on our walks, so he has to continue being an "only child."

Tough decision. But go with your instinct if you cannot have both.

Get both. :mrgreen:

I always recommend getting two if possible though- after seeing my two grow up together and how different their interactions are with each other compared to with us humans I always think two is a better choice if you can afford it/have the space etc.

I don't think I could pick either based on markings. Have you met both of them- did you have a favourite based on personality? Or is it possible to meet them if you haven't already? If so, you might find that meeting them will make your decision for you - as there may be one which connects with you better. Sometimes the animal chooses the owner! :)

If I was forced to choose I'd probably go with the darker one. Just personal preference.

I have met both and they are both are playful but sweet and cuddle on your lap when they are done playing. I have another bengal already that is just under a year old so whichever I choose will hopefully have a playmate once they get used to each other. Plus we have 4 small dogs that play with our other bengal and love cats :) I have a couple more weeks to decide. I'm sure either way it'll be great. Just so hard to choose!
