My first post,so hello all!
Last summer we were missing "Lulu" our old Parisian gutter cat - (she was never really sane or tame, but we tried for 13 difficult years).
Anyway, we were briefly staying out in the countryside near Alencon and found a very beautiful litter of 8 week old kittens looking for good homes. We decided that we should try having two brothers and were given one silver and beige-white and one smaller black beige-white boys with the strangest markings (we didn't know about Bengal cats at that stage). We gently took them back to where we were staying and immediately found that these two had very special and loving natures; we were bewitched by them really. We named them Marks & Spencer (which was a little better than "Villeroy & Boch" the French lavatory manufacturers).
Spencer, the silver/ beige was noticeably larger with paws the size of snow racquets... and HUGE ears. It didn't take long to realise that the boys were definitely Bengal cats and that we had been more than lucky to be simply given them. They are now a year old (fish-cakes, candles and paper balls to play with). and they have GROWN! Marks is more stocky while Spencer is simply a leopard, very long and lean, quite exceptionally beautiful in a very wild way, both gentle and inseparable. They love water and three of us play football together and Spencer has learned to pass the paper ball back to one or other of us!
Looking at the alarming size of their paws and claws (Spencer let's me clip all four feet) I would say we have at least another 18 months of growth, by which time Spencer will be the size of an articulated bus. He likes melon with his fish or ham and I'm thinking of buying a slaughterhouse to keep up with their needs.
We've had many pets over the years but nothing like these two, they have changed our lives so much for the better.
cool names marks and spencer lol, just to let you know bengals should NOT have big ears, they often look big as kittens but grow into them, bengals should in fact have small rounded ears ideally....
