I have been very busy looking for a new kitten. I was very sad about Indigo--preoccupied, depressed, obsessed, angry, inconsolable and beyond grief-stricken. The only thing that could get me beyond losing my cat was to think about getting a new cat. It worked.
I have been thinking about Bengal cats for the last month or so. Reading and researching. Dean is happy I have stopped crying. And he is actually looking forward to getting a Bengal too. They are fascinating.
Just go on Youtube and search for Bengal cat and you will find countless videos about Bengals who run on exercise wheels, play in water, leap 7 feet in the air and fetch like a dog. You will also see them walking on a leash and snuggling luxuriously. They are bred from Asian Leopard cats. The Bengal I would buy would be at least 4 generations from the Asian Leopard cat. Completely domesticated but resembling a little leopard. Spots (rosettes) or marbles. Long beautiful tails, slinky, fast, clownish. I want one.

I will be seeing more cats this weekend. Wish me luck. I need to get a kitten that will be as fantastic as Indigo was. That is not an easy task. But I think that a Bengal will do it. Indigo was probably a Bengal mix. Only a true Bengal will be able to take his place....
