I Wish I Were a Snot Ball Shooter

I was just curious, and I think I remember somewhere along the way reading something about Bengals here.
My Mom's birthday present this year will be a Bengal male - we breed them where I work, and I love their disposition - and their intelligence and playfulness. Mom's beloved 11 year old cat died unexpectedly last week, and she's heartbroken. The kittens we have right now at work are about 4 weeks old, and the little male is the sweetest thing, he always wants to be held, is very vocal - and has a lighter, more subtle, spotted coat (which I think is prettier than the darker, marbled pattern). My dad loves a rough and tumble cat he can play with, and they'd like to have a pet that can travel occasionally with them (but Mom's not a dog person). So, I think a Bengal would be perfect for them. I'm usually an advocate of adopting shelter animals, but with a Bengal, I know they'd get the look and personality that they love in a cat.
Anyway, I wonder what everyone else thinks ? Anyone have any experience with these cats ? Any stories to share ?
Also, I've looked and looked - but I can't find an article about them suitable for the breed profiles section. Maybe someone knows where to find a good one ??
