So. My husband and I decided we wanted a cat. We both have had cats before. I had had my previous cat for 15 years.
So we went to the shelter 3 weeks ago, and immediately fell in love with Khloe. A gorgeous 6 month old girl, that had been returned to the shelter and was quite skinny. She is grey and black with orange spots, bright orange eyes, unique streaks of white around her eyes, and a partly spotted belly. Very long and lanky, with a short, extremely soft coat.
(Going to put in right here that i know Khloe is not a purebred Bengal. Just maybe part?)
She had a great, loving, playful personality that we adored.

Fastforward 3 weeks. Now that Khloe has put on weight, she is feeling much better. Much...much better. She likes to voice her opinion, loudly. She wants to be as close to the ceiling as she can, she fetches like a dog, and I constantly find her in the shower or playing in her water dish.

I would never even consider taking her back to the shelter. But we just would like some advice on how to keep her challenged and stimulated mentally/physically?

It is really up to YOU to stimulate and challenge her. Lots of play time with wand toys is a first step. A tall cat tree is good as well. There are interactive toys on the market that challenge a cat with treats or food. Track ball toys that can keep them occupied for a minute or two. Cats do not have a long attention span, so this needs to be varied.

Based on your description of her, it doesn't sound like there would be any bengal in her. The traits of fetch and jumping in the shower is not solely with the bengal breed. My domestic short haired cats loves to be out in the pouring rain!
