Sisters? I used to have a male cat that looked like that--he was a terror on the curtains and on the waterbed. And welcome to the forum.
There are some lovely looking cats appearing on here - great shots everyone.
So - here's our Oliver again - so difficult to capture a photo of him, ~ he
won't keep still (ahem, joke!!).
No fiddling, other than resize and slight frame and name.
I think I possibly should have used a tiny bit more depth of field?...but I was
trying to keep the distracting background right out of focus.
Geoff, although it would have been nicer with greater dof, I love this photo of Oliver! Wish I could share pics of our late Asian Bengal Leopard cat, Beamer, with y'all, but he passed away last spring (he was 17) several months before buying my 1st dslr.
I just ask since I own a marbled Bengal--Bennie shown bellow.
Hey, TNB. He was a domestic - large tabby crossed with Asian Leopard cat, but you know since you have one. And TNB, your Bennie is absolutely gorgeous! Mine looked like these li'l guys, but he was HUGE and WOW could he jump!
Beamer was special: a 2-year-old 'purebred' (he took 2nd place in the US kitten class with the orginal breeder) that we saved from a backyard breeder who kept him outdoors (even in winter!) in a wire cage almost too small to turn around in, neglected him, fed him rice & scraps and only used him for breeding. I paid a small fortune to save him, and then hubby & I worked to get the breeder shut down permanently. He was a veritable wild thing when we first got him and his health was never the best because of his bad treatment, and it took ages to be able to even touch him. In the end he was the gentlest, sweetest cat I've ever had the pleasure to meet, and I miss him everyday. Sorry for the long post. :o
Bennie is also a papered pure-bread Bengal with quite a few international champions in his blood line. I actually purchased him at an international cat show. I also thought about picking up the sister as well, but I already had a Siamese-Russian Blue mix at home. By the way, both our cats must have been related if your cat was a pure-breed going back to Mills.
Bennie is also a "jumper" and loves to play in the water. My other cat is a "sprinter" though he used to like to play in the water until he fell in the bath tub full of water--I usually just shower. It took him a week to go back into the bathroom. I still fill up a sink every now and then and let them bounce a toy in it.
