Here is an image of a Bengal cat, Mystique.
I found the image on an internet site for the MA Prevention to Cruelty to Animals last year.
Who would have expected this site to be on MSPCA from MA.
This cat is so beautiful, I cannot believe it. Just amazing to read about this breed on their website.
I would love to have one of these beauties. They like to climb.
Would be at home in my house.
The last cat we had was a Blue Point Siamese. Named KABUKI. She always loved to perch on top of the beams in our home. We have cathedral ceilings and exposed beams.
I used to be greeted with a strange sound somewhere over my head. Had to find out where she was perched.
Used to scare the heck out of some of our house guests!
The original Siamese cats were also bred in Egypt to protect their thrones such as Queen Cleopatra?s palace. They would perch on the doorways entrance and leap on any unsuspecting uninvited guest.
Cleopatra was only four foot high as well as generally all the population of Egypt I read somewhere.
Those Siamese cats were terrors in that time period. Sharp teeth and claws.
Anyone have any interesting stories and photos to share concerning the Bengal Cat, Siamese or your own cat?
Good cats or terror cats?
When I was staying at a small guest hotel in Istanbul about a block away from the Hagia Sophia, there was a calico wild street cat that was adopted by the owner. The Hotel owner called him STINKY at the tine. Wonderful cat.
There are hundreds of wild cats outside at Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosqe courtyards. Some are very loving and others just look at you and run away to safety.
Many of the restaurant owners throughout Turkey try to feed the stray cats after their restaurants close at night.
Kind of nice, don?t you think?
