i've been reading the forum quite alot and get the impression that everyone is very much in favor of having more than 1 cat so that they have furry company. i think it is unlikely that my other half will go for buying me 2 bengals so will probably look to getting a rescue kitten instead as a companion.
its probably going to be next summer before we start looking at breeders so could be sometime before we get our bengal, so are we better waiting and getting both kittens roughtly at the same time, or getting 1 before the other and letting it settle in.
are we better having a male and a female or 2 of same sex?
our vet is happy to remove kitten boxes and furry dice from 16 weeks so they will be neutered soon as possible.
thanks in advance.

:lol: :lol: :lol: love that description

Personally I would try and get 2 at the same time so that they go through the settling in phase together but that's not based on any experience of having done it so others might advise differently.

In terms of gender, I don't think it matters hugely. Again I would tend to say either one of each or two females because males can be territorial but there are lots of successful boy duos out there too.

Welcome to the forum by the way and do tell us when you choose your little monsters.

I'd say get them together... I got the second 3 months after the first and it was fine but discovering together a new house must be great ;) (they were the same age).

I would get them both together.
As for boy v girl, I would say thats personal choice. I have both girls and boys. 1 bengal boy and 4 moggies, 1 boy and 3 girls. They are all equally loving but in different ways.
When i chose my Bengal i was going to have a girl....that is until solomon climbed up my legs and sat on my shoulder. he picked me.

Whether you decide on boy or girl they will give you years of love and affection in there own way :D
