    Hi, everyone. Going along with the Internet's love of cats I decided to share. If you aren't familiar with Bengals they're very dog like. I got mine from a shelter. They're really smart too. Mine recognizes himself in the mirror and even on video playing on my tablet. Any questions just ask.

    His name is Sterling Mallory Archer.

    He'll probably do what our Meez does - she chases her tail, catches it, then stares at it.
    Repeat ad infinitum.

    He also has what we have declared to be the evil foot. When he is attacking his toy on occasion his foot gets in the way and he attacks his own foot.

    How on earth did you do that? Purebreds go for big dollars, at least here in the southwest.

    I literally bribed all the shelters within a reasonable distance of me. $40 goes a long way when you're a volunteer.

    Next time you go grocery shopping, toss him an empty plastic bag. Our little bengal, Rocky, would put one around his neck and run all over the house, snarling and scaring the other cats half to death. And yes, his brother was named Bullwinkle.

    Well, you just got a Bengal and I had one, years ago. Your story inspired me to add my story... what direction would like us to go?

    He's adorable! So cute. And good for you for rescuing him. :) I've been adopting/rescuing dogs and cats for many years.

    Unfortunately, all kinds of pets are abandoned. :(
