A few COTHers (beside myself) have one. You can find Facebook groups (and rescues).
In any case, I got mine several years ago, when she showed up in my laundry room and refused to leave.
A dark orange/cinamon color, with spots instead of stripes, metalic sheen when the lights hits her just right, the SOFTEST kitty I ever had!
Unfortunately, she hates being picked up and snuggled (will snuggle with DH, under her terms only)
She can be very vocal (and loud), and although she has been with us for several years yet, she still gets her zoomie moments, running like a nut through the house, bouncing off the walls.
She likes high places, will never sit on the bare floor, matter of fact, my floors are a pool of lava, she has to travel the long way around this danger. :rolleye:
She is on the small side, I don’t think that is typical, around 8 pounds. My other 2 are around 14 pounds, even the slender one.
As far as my research goes, there are no major health concerns (not like with greyhounds and anesthesia)
Mine is an indoor cat by her choice. She seldom wanders outside through the cat door.
What I do see is a large percentage of Bengal owners opting to declaw their cats. And I have to say she does claw stuff a lot, but really not more than my other two as far as I am concerned.
A good scratching post is a must, or your furniture will suffer!
Mine is also a catnip junky, but YMMV.
As I have currently cat number 4 requesting entry to the kingdom, I don’t see myself getting another any time soon, but it’s certainly on my to-do list.
I love kittens, but there are a lot in rescue, astonishingly enough, and if mine is somewhat typical, they retain kitten behavior for quite some time. And they can teach your old cats some new tricks, too, like how to kill a roll of paper towels…as they cannot be trusted. Only a dead roll is a good roll!
