James

That's the name we choose for our new Bengal friend 🙂

We wanted to go last saturday but the people of the cattery had some bad luck so we have to make another appointment.
Were hoping to go next weekend.

We got a picture of the little kitty, 6 weeks old now.

With the colouring it's the same with brindle basenji's, they are born very dark and become lighter when they grow older

What a cute kitty..what are there temperments like?

Oh how exciting!!! You have to share the picture please, I just love bengals such lovely cats

If I remember correctly, don't you have a black cat?

Kim, that puts you at 5 boys!!!!!

You have the luckest baby boy ever!!! He will grow up to be an animal lover too!!!

Temperament is just like a Basenji, reaaaaly naughty and playfull, not a cat for a person that don?t know much about cats 😃

It?s great to have animals in your home, we had reptiles too but they really couln?t live at the ship (not stabile enough 😞 )

Another Basenji! How Exciting!!!! Keep us updated!

How cute..! But only one picture?! We need more…....! 😉

😃 Yes, you will get more 😃
When we are going to meet him in real life we will take a lot of pics! 😃

Your new kitty is absolutely adorable! Love love those cats! Matter of fact, the more I'm around my dogs, the more I appreciate my cats!

Oh I can't wait for mor pictures

Today Kas went to see the kitty's 😃

The one that we thought it would be our James isn't giong to be our James…
He is not growing fine anymore and she will hold him if he isn't growing better... 😞

But we got two options left,
1 get his sister
2 get a kitty that is a bit older (just turned 13 weeks, so that litter is leaving their mommy this weekend! bengal cats leave their home at 13 weeks)

We feel a little bad about the little kitty but we have to make a choise, we will pray the little one turns to be a great guy that will spend his life with the breeder and we are now thinking about the older kitty... (we don't want to have a female cat)
tomorrow we will make the final decision.. exciting..

Our heart already made the decision... but we want to sleep on it a night...

It's a georgeous bengal cat, his daddy is a very sweet boy (BIG and likes to get hugged)

The pictures are uploaded one of these days... but I will tell you.. you will be in love 😃

Sorry to hear about the little fella..I know you will make the right decision…share when you are ready..hoping for pictures soon.

Sorry to hear James is not going to be right for you - whatever kitty you get will be adorable and we want pictures. I've had boy kitties and girl kitties - all have had their own personalities, and all have been wonderful. My one remaining kitty is a female, and she is as loving and complicated as all the others. The only constant I've noticed regarding the sex of the cats is that females want to rule the roost - just like the B's.

Thanks all 😉

We made our decision, I kept thinking about the little one and asked myselfe what's my biggest reason to choose that one.. And the reason is that I want to give him such a loving home until it's his time… After talking about it with Kas, I know for sure the breeder can and will give the little boy also that much love he needs..
So I have peace with not taking him after all, he WILL get everyting he needs.

So... we called the breeder this morning to say: We will get the little fellow from 13 weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The timing is perfect, we had to get used to the fact we didn't have to wait much longer...
Tomorrow morning Kas is driving to the other side of Holland to pick up our James..
He looks so beautiful and he will be spoiled so much 😃

Later today I will post some pics 😃

Houston

wow, so James is coming home today..how exciting..I bet you can not wait..
Tell us all about it when he arrives..
Congrats

Best wishes fro your 'new' James. I always believe that things work out the way they are meant to!
