The Bengal Cat is number 21?

On Friday Jan 11, 2008, the bengal cat was named # 21 in a list of the top most expensive gifts ever given. 

It was behind some interesting items like the First GI Joe: $50,000, Diamond Barbie: $85,000, Ferrari Go-Cart (from FAO Schwartz): $50,000, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head (covered in dazzling Swarovski crystals): $8,000 each, and (Conflict free) Diamond Studded Lipstick: $62,000 to name a few.

And even though it was more expensive, the (18 karat White gold) Amour Amour Dog Collar: $1.8 million ranked lower in the list at #23.

These days bengal kitten prices are much more reasonable.  Our pet kittens average  a mere $850 - $1000.

Kitty takes an unscheduled ride via Baggage Claim 

Gracie the lost cat"The last time...Kelly saw Gracie (her newly spade kitty) was before she took her husband to the airport. The 24-year-old went back to her house in Palm Beach Gardens late Friday to find the bottom step, where Gracie would usually be waiting, empty."  She tore the house apart removing bathroom tiles and part of a cabinet to check a crawl space and put up "lost cat" signs.

Then she got a phone call.  "Hi, you're not going to believe this, but I am calling from Fort Worth, Texas, and I accidentally picked up your husband's luggage. And when I opened the luggage, a cat jumped out," Kelly Levy quoted the caller saying.

Rob Carter said, "I went to unpack and saw some of the clothes and saw it wasn't my suitcase," he said. "I was going to close it, and a kitten jumped out and ran under the bed. I screamed like a little girl."

Carter said that he eventually was able to get the cat to come out from under the bed.  The tabby made the 1,300-mile trip home on an $80 plane ticket. Carter said he considered keeping the cat before he knew she had a home.  "We were going to name it Suitcase," he said.

Interview with Kelly Roper of Cats.Lovetoknow.com

Kelly Roper of Cats.Lovetoknow.com contacted me to put together an interview about Bengal Cats.  You can read the full article at :   http://cats.lovetoknow.com/Bengal_Cat_Breeder.  It is the highlighted August 2007 interview. 

What's the scoop?

Felines use the litter that they are used to, but we humans consider other things, like smell, ease of use and the environment.  Here are a few we recommend:

  • Worlds Best Cat Litter - WBCL is made from corn proteins and fibers.  It's biodegradable, flushable/septic safe, and has superior order control for single and multi-cat house holds.          (WBCL promo: Buy 9 Bags Get $28 in coupons.)
  • Feline Pine - is made from sawdust pellets reclaimed from lumberyards. Try a free bag.

Cat in Tree Rescued With Hose Blast

Sep 17, 2007 4:43 PM (ET)

YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) - A fearful feline that was stuck in a tree for a week, clinging to branches several stories high, was finally blasted to safety with a high-pressure fire hose.  Volunteers with an outstretched sheet made the save as the cat - soaked and hungry but unharmed - was hosed out of the tree by firefighters Sunday night.  "Everyone was cheering," said artist and animal rescuer Greg Speirs, who was among about 50 people assembled beneath the willow tree.  The cat had previously ignored people who banged cans of cat food and climbed ladders that were just out of reach. It took two shots with the hose to do the trick.  "As soon as the cat landed it jumped out and ran into the woods," Speirs said Monday.  "Some kids helped us bring the cat back, and a man said he would adopt the cat right on the spot," Speirs said. "You can't come up with a nicer ending than that."

"Pander to the whims of the rich and famous?"

Jemima's bengal catWhile we were watching Music and Lyrics....

Hugh Grant's girlfriend's lost Bengal cats were a big story all over Europe.  According to The Sun, Hugh Grant and his girlfriend, Jemima Khan were chastised for calling Scotland Yard to help find their lost Bengal cat.  Evidently "pander(ing) to the whims of the rich and famous" is not part of their job.  Khan posted a reward poster.  The next day her other Bengal went missing, but was quickly returned by a neighbor. 

6 - 20 - 2007    Ms. Kahn, Purrs and kitty wishes, for your Bengal to have a speedy return.   He is very pretty and it is no wonder why you would want him back.

Snow Bengals

Not just a Leopard printed accessory for your den:

Sharon L. Peters, writes in USA Today: "An elegant, exotic-looking feline just a few generations removed from the wild has become the public's meow." "Their personalities and quirks are equally distinctive. Fans of Bengals say they're vocal, self-assured cats, exceptionally smart and easily trained. They're also water lovers and avid climbers, and they love a raucous game of fetch." and "Bengal fanciers say the cats are now sufficiently removed from their wild feline ancestors four to eight generations in most cases and any early temperament issues have been bred out." But still "People who buy them as a decorative item...would be better off with a stuffed animal."

Kitten Video

We have a new page for our Bengal Amis...or friends. A new video posted a Sept 12.

Morgan and I took the boys outside for some sun and made our first video.  It is called "Three Kittens in a Basket."  It features one of our favorite songs "Put your records on" by Corinne Bailey Rae.  That was the song that Antonella Barba sang on American Idol.

We are definitely not professional videographers, but we wanted our Bengal kitties to be on YouTube none the less.  You can see the video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NpAJca0SxA

We used Nero Vision Express to do the editing.
