Starring, for the first time: MAGIC!!!!!!
First EVER Video of Magic. For those who are here for the first time, Magic is an F1 Bengal, which means his Daddy was an Asian Leopard Cat. He was bounced from home to home for BEING an early generation Bengal, and finally ended up with us in rescue.
He now has a home with me, and for the first time, is coming out when another person is in the room, for some play. (He hid in his cave for months after I got him) He has gone from a hostile being who trusted to no one and nothing, to a Kitty who knows how to love. And Play.
Early Generation Bengals take a lot of special care. They are closer to the ALC (Asian Leopard Cat) If you decide to adopt a Bengal thru Great Lakes Bengal Rescue or another rescue, you will not be getting an early generation Kitty. You will be getting an F4 (considered a domestic cat) or higher.
They have all the spots, energy, and intelligence and beauty of their earlier Gen cousins, but without the problems sometimes associated with the Early Gen guys. EG Kitties need to be with people who know what they are getting, AND what they are doing once they have them.
If you understand Bengals (And I am happy to help, point you at websites, talk, anything) pretty much any cat lover will do just fine with a Bengal.
They have a way of getting into your heart.
And one more...
It was our own Cat Mihos (Kitty, @neverwear, @furrytigerkitty) Boss's other Assistant and my dear friend who took these, first ever Magic vids.
They make me nearly cry, thinking how far Magic has come. No one wanted him. He loved no one, and no one loved him. He ended up at a shelter who would not take him, because he was not adoptable. He had no chance they said.
Guess they were wrong.
Love ad Magic,
