I want a Bengal!
It's been a while since I've been to the forums and I'm sorry if you missed me! :-P
Anyways, I usually don't really like cats that much, I mean they seem aloof and lazy to me, but a few weeks ago a co-worker started telling me about Bengal Cats. I started reading up on them and they seem sooooooo cool. They are much more like a dog then your typical housecat. Well, by the grace of God I was reading through the American Classifieds and found an ad for Bengal kittens for $50. I couldn't believe it because Bengals usually sell for $500-$800. I told my co-worker about it and she called the lady selling them.
The lady said that the whole litter had allergies (eye boogers, sneezing, chest congestion) and she didn't feel right selling sick kittens so she was just giving them away. We met her at a truckstop (she lives out in the country and we'd get lost trying to find her house) and we started playing with the kittens. After about an hour my co-worker picks one out and we took Little Pluto to the vet. Our vet told us not to call him a bengal, because Bengals are considered to be wild animals in this area and he isn't supposed to treat them.
To make a long story a bit shorter, vet did all of the vet things, and Pluto was a little trooper. He never got hissy and the claws never got out. After the shots and blood tests, he would just run over to Maria (co-worker) or myself and snuggle up to us as close as possible.
He also loves to climb up on my shoulder's and watch the world go by from his perch. On the way home he fell asleep in my hat, and I fell in love with him.
Now I am just hoping that Maria's dogs don't get along with Pluto so I can have him!!!
