Please Help Us! Free Bengal Cat
Mogli is a 4 year old Bengal male that was adopted by me as a result of a friend of my daughters that went away to college. I love him.
Problem, he hates my other cats, he hates them so much that he pee's, not sprays, but pee's on everything. He is ruining my home. Mogli does fine with an owner that can be with him a lot, he loves to cuddle under the covers at night, he loves to play. He is a talker!
There are over 20 sounds he makes, 10 are most common and 4 are daily "speech." Did I say I love him? I didn't get to raise him from a kitten and with all the cats I have fostered and adopted over the years have NEVER had a cat that I couldn't keep.
He is neutered and declawed (front only) and could be a very good companion to a no-other-pet home. He does not like kids, or at least small children and is somewhat aggressive to them and will pee on their things as well.
Mogli did fine during a move and was great while the other cats were gone, he was the model citizen. Now with everyone home and settled (almost a year) and two grandbabies he is not happy, and therefore, neither are we.
Please, please help me give him the home that he deserves and needs. He is truly a love in the right circumstances, and he will be greatly missed. But he can't stay here anymore. I would hate to have to take him to the "pound".
I am running out of choices, I am afraid. If you are serious about making him part of your home and family please e-mail me at:
Hi Wyndi.. Sorry to hear of your problem and Mogli's problem. I have changed the title to try and get Google to find this page more effectively - I know that people search for "free bengal cat". It was changed for no other reason than effectiveness in achieving your goal - the successful rehoming of Mogli.
Forgive me, but I can't help but comment on the declawing. You might know how I hate it. Is it possible that it has made him insecure? Insecurity leads to defensive aggression and a need to make surroundings more friendly and cats do that by depositing their smell through spraying. Spraying also tells other cats to stay out of a cat's territory. It may be that Bengal cats being wildcat hybrids are a little more prone to urine marking that regular domestic cats. This may have compounded the problem.
Mogli is an insecure cat and I agree that he needs an unchallenging and emotionally very warm environment.
Good luck to both yourself and Mogli.
