In a vague attempt to journal more and because I like the idea but don’t want yet another blog I don’t use I have decided to steal the bliphoto idea and use pics on the LJ as a jump point.

What else could I start with but my beautiful kitties?!

It is also a shameless excuse to wax lyrical about my kittens and for those that have not been bombarded by pics already (or the real living furry flesh).

I have two beautiful, but hysterically stupid Bengals. They are f3's and both just over two years old. They are half sisters (by their father) and are both adorable and talkative and dopey and ungraceful and smelly and tiny and loving.

They are the first pets that are ‘mine’, or rather that chose me.

They are also very very spoilt.

This is Luna (Selene).

She is a silver spot lynx Bengal.

She likes anything that she can eat, especially if she can have it off your plate. She also has a really weird habit where she drags her back leg across your foot when she wants feeding. She particularly likes raw chicken wings and munching bones which make a really scary cracking noise.

She is my little grey shadow and has occasional sad days where she stays in her basket and mopes about a bit. She sometimes comes and wakes me up in the morning so that she can get under the bed covers for cuddles.

She also very definitely has a screw you meow.

This is Aura (Aurora).

She is a golden spotted Bengal. She is two days the elder.

She has huge paws and huge eyes and a huge belly. She has the loudest meow I have ever heard, especially at 6 am when she wants us to get up and feed her.

She loves her fish and gets mean and if she has had cat nip, which she will steal and run away with if you are not pay full attention.

She especially loves it when you rub her belly and she rewards you by eviscerating you with her super sharp claws.

She is very much the Chaps cat and comes trotting along whenever he clicks his fingers and meows no stop at me when he is away. He is also the only person who has survived picking her up.

Hi Pru, it's Megan from dancing. Your kitties are so very pretty and elegant!
If you fancy some costume rambling and a lot of waffle for your Flist, please do add me, as I will you! I'm also enjoying your blog, but don't get on so well with commenting there ;)

Those are two damned good looking cats :)

Do they ever bring you "presents" of critters they caught?

They are house cats. We got them after their father died and so they couldnt be breed, they were just coming up to 12 months old and had always been house cats.

Luna goes out in a harness in the summer (and she loves her harness) but Aura hates it. We are going to fence off the garden for next summer, but they probably wont go very far and they have no street sense at all. Aura got out once and sat in the neighbours garden (where she could see us) calling at us for an hour before I rattled the food tin and she came trotting back.

Gosh Bengals! so sleek! so pretty! so expensive!

a friend has a half bengal cat (it's black but you can see the spots in the black) and it's a terror! a beautiful terror though :D

They are sleek - Aura has the softer coat but Lunas gets really shiney if you feed her raw foods (which is partly why we do a bit - its also good for their teeth)

They are expensive if you get kittens (they are the cutest kittens ... Never look you will just buy them all) and if they are for breeding. Our two were ex breeder program kittens so not as expensive and basically of no use any more to the breeder.

They are terrors! Is your friends cat stupid ? Mine are really stupid - loverly but stupid - I think it's the high inbreeding

I think her's has a frighteningly malevolent intelligence - possibly buoyed by the moggy side :D

I had a turkish van once. prettiest cat I ever saw let alone owned. absolutely thick as could be. his sister was less pretty and had all the brains.
