On my lap, or snuggled up to Charlie Bird.


Arrival Story:
We were looking for a friend for Charlie Bird, who had a touch of separation anxiety, when we heard that a local cat breeder had closed (we don't know why), and 9 Bengals had been left with a vet. The first 8 cats were adopted out quickly (free pure-bred Bengals don't come along every day)...but no one seemed to want the skittish black-on-black one named Panther, possibly because black isn't a show colour for Bengals. So by the time we showed up, he was the only on left. The vet explained that he hadn't been socialized and was VERY afraid of people. We said that we were up for the challenge and brought Panther (who we renamed Mingus) home to Charlie Bird, whom he loved right away.

I am a very gorgeous black-on-black Bengal, with black stripes and spots you can see when I sit in the sun. I have huge paws, especially considering I have only the normal number of toes, and claws that look like talons. The funniest part of how I look is that I'm black, but my underfur is completely white...with looks odd when my mum brushes my fur the wrong way (which I love, by the way).
