So, I have pretty much found my breeder(s)(one of them breeds Toygers) - and she has two snow boys, one Mink the other Lynx.
Now I've got some questions about "how they will turn out" it's no so much a matter of choosing but pure curiosity :wink:
I know - Some of them might have been asked before XD

Questions:
How will their contrast be?
How does glitter show on Lynx and Mink?
Like, how do you guys think the spots might develop. Are they going to fill up their entire bodies, or will there be some background? How will the rosettes be(will they get lighter/darker)?
(It's tough here, since I'd normally just go see them in real life and then decide - but there are no breeders in my vicinity with snows)
Picture Time!

The parents are just gorgeous snows! And the babies already have huge rosettes forming. I imagine that the baby snow will look similar to the parents. Are you going to see them in person before committing?

I have a couple of mix breed snows and in the sunlight one of them sparkles with iridescent glitter. She has the nicest coat too. She is too sensitive to brush very often, so it is naturally beautiful. The other one begs to be brushed every day and hers is smooth as silk. I use a boar bristle brush to make her extra soft.

They live far down in Germany :)
So I won't be able to visit - the breeder is very kind and so good to speak with.
She has sent me many videos and pictures :D

They are gorgeous! The parents are both great looking cats, so Im sure they will grow up to be stunners. I have a young snow mink and I just went back and watched some videos of him when he was a little kitten to see how he's changed. His markings have definitely become darker over time, but the background colour is still the same, and his rosettes have gotten bigger. I didnt notice glitter on either of mine until they were about 9 months, but it looks the same on Spider as it does on Maasai (a brown), just like an iridescent shimmer when they capture the light

Those babies are gorgeous! The parents' coats look similar, so I'm sure that's how the babies will look as adults. Note that rosettes do not fill in. They will be lighter in the middle and no two rosettes will be the same. I don't think you can go wrong with either kitten.

I'd very much pick both if I could :wink:
But apartment rules are apartment rules - only 1 pet, cat or dog, is allowed.

Would that I could.
Actually, each pet must be registered and approved of with such things as microchip number, proof of neutralization and so on. The "board" will then approve it and you will pay for a coin-like tag that goes on your cat's collar - printed on it will be your apartment number, building number and sometimes phone number. Cats are not allowed outside and must wear collars with their tag on at all times.
Strict, but it is a huge issue with so many unwanted kittens and feral cats each year.

I do think I am mostly taken in by the Mink ;)
But it is very nice to hear about how different they look compared to each other. I think it's very hard for people to really appreciate the work Bengal breeders put into it - especially when there is so few breeders here. I might just see it there aren't any breeders in Sweden I might be able to visit.

Wow that's a really strict building! I used to live in a condo that became no pets. Because I lived there before the rule became official, I was allowed to keep my cat because I had one at that time. I had to give them a photo of the cat. I bet I could have kept getting siamese and tell them it was the same cat. Many others had pets that were not officially allowed to have them because they moved in after the rule. It's hard to allow something for some but not others.

I'm lucky I'm in before late September - the Union of owners decide things ( like how many pets) each year in late September. Last year they decided people could once more get new pets registered. For 2 years they hadn't allowed anyone to get a new pet. It's super strict.
They tend to take better care though, there are no roaming cats or dogs.
Everything looks good and clean because there is a lot of respect for each other.

The green park like areas between buildings are Dog-Free zones - you're absolutely not allowed to walk your dogs on those areas. And there's an actual park with a lake where there are these small bridges you can cross :3 they put these huge globes up in the trees that light it up in the evenings - they're solar powered :P it's really awesome!

I think it will be a great place to live and also a great place for my cat :) there is a lot of potential with the home. I just hope I can decide in a kitten, haha XD
Also, the breeder put up videos of the two of them (plus another boy with a collar, he's taken)
So if you guys would like to see them in action here they are:

Either these babies are tiny or that hand is HUGE! They are super adorable kitties! I personally think it's wonderful that your apartment complex cares so much. It protects the pets AND neighbors! At least they allow one pet. Things can get out of hand if they allow as many as one wants. Be thankful you will have a great home for you and your bengal.

They turn 5 weeks old tomorrow :3 I'm extremely happy with the rules, I have Cynophobia so the fact that they're so strict (especially when it comes to animals) means less chance of an uncontrolled encounter with a dog.

Anyway, I would still love to hear how those with snow bengals experience "glitter". It's so fascinating!
I also really love the genetics concerning colors - But it is a tough choice XD I'm sure I'll figure it out though, they are both so lovely :) And the breeder is so nice
