Bengal Cats Not Suited As House Cats???
I keep reading on this website how unsuitable bengal cats are for those living in flats (apartments if you're American), or indoor living.
I can only disagree.
I have two Bengals, Tsega (SAY-ga) a silver spotted male aged 1 year 5 months, and Orion a brown spotted male ages 1 year 4 months.
I live in the typical London flat, and although it's spacious for a London dwelling, it's relatively small in comparison to accommodation in USA or Australia for example.
My Bengals have do not show any signs of distress being indoors, and neither do my friends Bengals, who are also house cats.
My Bengals have access to a ceiling height cat tree, and a lot of toys (Go-Go Hamster being the latest). I regularly take them over to my parent's house once every couple of weeks for a couple of days, enabling them to have more room to play, and a little variety.
They are regularly taken out on their harnesses, and love walkies.
Tsega loves playing in water, and actually gets excited whenever I have a pee, rubbing around my legs before watching the toilet flush.
Orion loves to play fetch with plastic knives and forks.
They tend to sleep for the majority of the day when I am at work, play at dusk and dawn, before joining me on the bed at night time.
Mine are both lap cats, although Tsega prefers to squash next to you, opposed to on your lap.
They are both very happy and content cats, although I am looking to buy somewhere with a garden for them.
Bengals can make great house pets (who in all honesty would want to let out a cat with spots on in London anyway...), if you're prepared to ensure they're entertained and have variety.
