As 2011 wraps up Bengals take center stage

According to TIBCS, "Bengal Cats will be part of a special segment on the Martha Stewart Show on December 1, 2011 at 10 AM ET on the Hallmark Channel! Bengal Cats along with Munchkins, Toygers, Sphynx and Cymric as well as dogs and birds appear on the special "PETS" episode.  The Martha Stewart Show is one of the most popular and entertaining television programs that successfully combines interviews, crafts, cooking, fashion and fun! Martha Stewart is an icon and you can see for yourself how much she enjoyed Bengal Cats and all the cats and pets on her upcoming show."

November 19th, 2011 - Bengals took center stage on the NYTimes.com followed by a front page picture discussing Bengals and CAT Agility.

A Bengals was spotted on FOX and Friends, Friday, November 18th, with AKC Spokesperson Gina DiNardo!  She mentioned that Bengals continue to be the most popular breed in The International Cat Association.

Kitty Problems?

Woman's Day August 2011 - Kitty Behavior Tips by Marilyn Kreiger 

  

 

 

 

What is my cat talking about?

Bengals have a huge vocabulary of domestic sounds including many meows that owners recognize and some sounds that are definitely not meows. The cat that I had growing up had a special meow that sounded like “meow-waaant” that he made when he was hungry. Most cats have a specific meow for things like: “I like this catnip.” “Let me out of this room” “Enough is enough, I don’t want to play dress up any more.” and  “The door to the litter box is closed, where else shall I go?”  And, of course, they purr to say "I am super happy!" 

But as a Bengal owner, you may have noticed your Bengal making a chirping or chattering sound, that is not a meow of any kind.  Owners with large picture windows report hearing this chattering when their Bengals sit and watch the birds.   The cats are obviously calling to the birds.  They mimic birds chirping in hopes of luring them closer in order to catch and EAT THEM!  They will also chirp at flying insects and occasionally at each other, although I am not sure what that is about. 

I have had two females who make an entirely different sound, that we call “clucking”.  This sounds like a chicken or rooster; the sound stays low in the throat and is a bit like pronouncing the letter “k” with a German accent.  It seems to be a warning to other cats to stay clear of their babies.  Not many Bengals “cluck.”  The gargling sound of a male calling is another story all together.  Does your Bengal make other unique sounds?  Enquiring minds want to know!   

Bengal Cats are #1

According to numbers from TICA (The International Cat Association), Bengals became the most popular breed in 2009.  This is no surprise since Bengals fit into so many different family lifestyles.  They are great therapy cats as well as show cats; they love attention and they love visitors.  Some travel to work with their owners or live in artist studios.  Some are kings of their very own castles(Check out the WILD BOYS new letter home.)  Bengals are soared into 2011 on top! 

Did you see Eddie on Animal Planet?

We kept trying to TIVO the Cats 101 episode that our boy, Eddie, appeared on and finally saw it on Thanksgiving and then again on Christmas.  He was under a year old at that show...here are some pictures:

Are Bengals Legal in Georgia?

Bengals are one of the most popular breeds of cat today; they are the majority at TICA shows; and they are legal in Georgia, as well as, almost every other state.

Read about how the Bengal became legal in Georgia.

Cat catches Swine Flu

November 4, 2009 - The Washington Post reported the first case of H1N1 flu carried by a cat in Iowa.  The American Veterinary Medical Association has confirmed that the Swine Flu Epidemic does in fact pose a threat to our cats and in this case they believe the cat got it from its owners.   While this kitty has recovered, the American Association of Feline Practitioners reminds pet owners that "they should monitor their pets' health very closely, no matter what type of animal, and visit a veterinarian if there are any signs of illness."

Its a bird, it's a plane, it's a cat with wings?

The UK's Daily Mail published a picture of a cat with wings.  Evidently, "though born looking completely normal, once the cat hit the age of 1, he began growing wing-shaped appendages on either side of his spine."  Scientist offered a few different explanations for this including grooming habits, a genetic defect or a hereditary skin condition.  There have been other reports of winged cats; they are all long-haired. cat with wings

These Cats Swim

The London Daily Mail picked up a story about a rare white Bengal Tiger at the Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Zoo in Vallejo, near San Francisco, named Odin.  Evidently he is an excellent swimmer.  Here is a picture of him on the left and of two of our Bengals on a boogie board in the pool on the right:

Beware of Kitten Scam

WSB-TV Atlanta posted a warning today for cat lovers. "State officials are investigating people who rescue or adopt stray kittens and then sell them as exotic kittens for hundreds of dollars.... Channel 2's Tom Regan talked to one woman who fell for the ploy but won in the end."  Here is the link to that interview. It was reported that the same person passed off sick Bengal kittens around Christmas.  Backyard breeders and scammers have been responsible for placing ill kittens in the past and then they disappear leaving owners responsible for hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in vet bills.  Buyers...please beware of this type of thing.  Responsible Bengal breeders register their kittens with The International Cat Association and most are members of the The International Bengal Cat Society.  You can look up their names and their cattery names there to verify their legitimacy. Here is a link for further information on how to choose a good breeder.  

More Bang for your Buck

It is funny how Bengals love their toys, have to have them and go through them so fast.  This is from the Seattle Times "Lio" Cat Cartoon - Published on February 21, 2008.  Hopefully good for a laugh!
