[QUOTE]In Response to Re: What Hobbies are People Getting Into to Distract During Off-Season? : Awwwww, he/she's cute. Is this breed known for the disposition you've described for your cat? The reason why I ask is that I've got 2 Maine Coon cats...and they fall under Webster's definition of goofy. We did have another cat at one time...Piikoi, who was da best mousa in da world. I sure could have used her for the rat hunting. She was one of the meanest cats I knew. She was mean to everyone except my wife. I was literally afraid to pet her....lol.

Crazy, totally different breed imo than any and EVERY domestic... Bengals comes from a Savannah (big $-like upwards of even 25k)...Savannahs (ideally) are 50% Serval (which is an African plains wild cat). Savannah's get to the size of a mid-sized dog, Servals (the true wild cat)-think almost like a greyhound-not quite as high (close though), but little longer...
It appears, that these new hybrids, like a Savannah and then a Bengal, really MUST have come from totally different breeds of wild native cats than what originally ALL domestics were once bred from long ago...
Mine lol, acts 1000X more like a dog, than a regular domestic cat... Comes to her name, greets me at the door, has NEVER ever been sorta capricious in attitude like a domestic (where they love ya 1 sec, and then scratch your face the next no matter what)... TOTALLY human oriented...just wants to play with you ALWAYS: Mine knows upwards of a dozen or more words, she plays fetch, she runs after me and either tries to trip me up or just skies in the air and tries to tackle me... My bengal LOVES to climb, far moreso than any jumping like a cat... Wants and NEEDS (and I've heard this before many times RE: Bengals/Savannahs)-To be involved in EVERY family/human activity...ALWAYS. She's nocturnal, HUGE...Meaning=Just before sunrise, I hear balls being batted all over my place, hall area rugs being torn up (oh, she buries tthings under rugs), and even blinds being torn down...she wants to hunt (her balls get plopped on the back of my neck and her toys get brought up to me in bed). Doesn't like glittering, plastic crazy weird toys like many domestics...I go right to the dog isle, and get like balls, & heavy duty fabric doll-like toys (she carries 'em up to high places then whacks em off...and again, and again). Oh, she likes water too (just like a serval)...put a few inches of water in the tub, a few toys, and she's all set. Sleeps right by my head, or purring on my back at night...
Can't have any dogs in my condo complex, so I got the most bad-#ss cat I could afford.
