New Kittens!

I am happy to report that my husband and I are adopting two beautiful Bengal kittens!

We will take delivery of them early next month.

Any tips, suggestions, or advice will be welcomed.

They are beautiful, but you must treat them carefully, because they can be rather ferocious, tgey are mix between domestic and wild cat.

Congratulations! They're beautiful animals. After a life of cats, I'd advise never start on commercial cat food. Feed them the protein you eat, chicken and fish etc. and they'll thrive. They like greens, you can plant little kits for them to bite the sprouts. You'll need to be home a lot to guard your furniture until they learn the ropes. Get a cat tower, maybe put up a swing. Enjoy!

You can plant your own sprouts too, but Chewy.com has good little kits. Their own scratching tower will discourage the furniture being scratched, but they understand "no" and avoiding the furniture eventually. You might wrap some things in plastic temporarily. I have no experience with claw covers. Remember that litter box makes them want to self- wash their feet and that claw covers might be problematic for that reason.

Back when I had cats (I always used to say, "Everyone on my house has a pet: I have a dog, the dog has a cat, and the cat has a fish"), when I got them (young from various "cat ladies"), I cut their little nails with people nail clippers. They didn't seem to mind it, and even when they got older, I was able to do it easily.

I also cut my dogs' nails.

Gotta start when they're young.

There are sprays you can buy that makes the edges of furniture less attractive to cats; they don’t like the smell. I’ve never used them, though, so I don’t know how well they work.

It might be better to have furniture shields, and make the scratching post attractive with catnip, redirecting them there if they start to scratch the furniture (positive reinforcement rather than negative deterrent). 🤔

However, judging from you own posts your fastidiousness about your cooking, garden, house, etc. . The first time these cats act out their true nature, probably the first day, you are going to have to go to the ER to be defibrillated. There are reasons there are tons of cats like these and Husky dogs are up for adoption. People thought it would be cute to get one without knowing anything about the breed. Good luck and if you did rescue them your heart is kind of in the right place. It just doesn't know what it is doing. Have you gone on YouTube to watch these cats in a home?

Nonsense, they’re no more “ferocious” than any other cat and generally love people, and are confident and get along well with dogs too. I had two Bengals, now just one and couldn’t imagine living with another breed. They are very active though and you need to play with them. Good to have two as playmates.

R72, I think it's time for you to start acting like a man.

As most people might assume, my place smells very fresh.

It's a bit of an obsession.

I have air purifiers, routinely open windows to air out rooms, even in winter. Trash is taken out every night even if the bag is not full. And I have a very good ventilation system in my kitchens because I don't like the houses smelling of food.

I don't like artificial scents or things like scented candles.

But I do very much like a fresh-smelling home and that will not change.

Now what would make you think that my homes smell bad?

Fat chance! I have a small floor scratcher (in addition to a tower) and pick it up for the cat to scratch on. She then gets rewarded with kisses (no food). It helps, but the cat still scratches the furniture. They want to be where you are, so if you sit on the couch, they want to scratch it. Scratching is necessary, they're not trying to piss you off.

Scientific facts:

Cats tear the shit out of Ethan Allen and Pottery barn furniture - specifically the upholstered back panels.

Cats will mark Restoration Hardware sofas because they know they are snob purchases you regret.

You should purchase identical or complimentary fabric by the yard and reupholster back panels and arms as needed. You are home; you can tack up back panels. It’s therapeutic.

Also, wall mounted tvs can hold 50-75 pounds with good stud support. Cats under 12 pounds won’t cause a crash, but bengals will cause problems.

Also, figure out how to lock the freezer and refrigerator.

I've had 4 adult rescue Bengals, nothing like what everyone describing here.

Install baby locks on the cabinets, do not leave any food unattended for a minute, even on the stove. My cats even liked bagged sourdough bread, so I had to store it in the microwave or freeze it. One guy used to chomp into ripe avocados (the skin is lethal to them) and carry it around like a prize. Even packaged things can be torn into- you'll need a plastic storage container if you're feeding them dry food.

You'll need 3 litter boxes (the rule is 1 per cat + 1 extra).

Most likely they'll be very vocal, so get used to it. They love to announce when they're going to the bathroom, that they are going, and that they are done. Hopefully you don't get night time singers.

Get a cat wheel and train them early.

Put the scratching post right next to the end of the arm of the sofa or chair (or whereever they're clawing), and every time they try to claw the end, give them a stern "no" (or blow in their face, they hate that), immediately put their paws on the post, make scratching noises with your own nails, and praise them. Rinse, lather, repeat until they do it on their own. You can even give treats (most of them are very food oriented) to expedite the process. No cat will want to go to a scratching post in a corner of the room. Also double sided sticky tape is effective.

Make sure you double check anything that closes (refrigerator, washer, dryer, closets, oven, drawers, cabinets, etc) before you close it. Many sad tales of suffocated cats that snuck in before the owner closed the doors. Also always be aware of the possible front door dash/sneak when entering or leaving.

They are very smart, athletic cats, and it's good that you're getting two, but they'll figure out things together- if your door has a handle, they'll figure that out, or opening drawers. Mine has even figured out how to open tupperware.

You'll have to play with them for at least 30 minutes before bedtime to wear them out, so they don't sing the song of their people or jump all over you at night.

Do not be surprised if they venture into the bathtub/shower/sink with water in it. A lot of Bengys like water. Also since they're crossed with the Asiatic Leopard Cat (who loves high places), they will jump on top of bookcases, shelves, climb curtains, or the top of the door and hang out. So I would recommend building a lot of vertical space for them- I hacked a bunch of Ikea shelves in different widths all around my apartment, and they use them all the time. I did put a cork surface on them, so it's not slippery.

They'll also need a high protein, low or no grain diet.

Bengals are special cats, gorgeous and very dog like- I taught my 13 and 9 year olds dog tricks: sit, spin in circles in both directions, beg pretty, and walk on leash. The 13 year old walked like a dog on path, the 9 year old was definitely cat: Oh look-there's a tree there, lemme climb it. Aaaand I'm gonna stay here.

Try to play and depress their toes as often as you can, so you can get them used to nail clipping

That's all I can think of for now. If you have any other questions, let me know.

My experience with two Bengals has been a little different from R184.

They’ve NEVER had interest in human food, ever. I’ve occasionally offered them a taste and they simply don’t react to it. The exception would be canned tuna but that’s not really much different from cat food. I never had to worry about leaving food or ingredients unattended.

Also I had just one litter box for the both of them, never a problem despite getting the second Bengal a year after the first.

Cats should not eat prunes as they can be toxic to them. Prunes contain a high amount of sugar and fiber, which can cause digestive issues in cats. It is best to stick to a balanced diet of cat food specifically formulated for their nutritional needs.

That is precisely why they are available for rescuing, R246. You said it yourself.

Let me help you:

1. “You are foolish for getting a notoriously difficult breed (two!) as your first cats. I predict they soon will be surrendered.”

2. And if we surrender them—they become Bengal rescue cats.

3. Ask someone for help if you still have trouble with the concept, R246.

R295 And time consuming and gross. Two Bengals means three litter boxes that must be scooped twice a day. If they actually go in the boxes.

Your Bengal kitty does not want to use an unsanitary litter box, anymore than you want to use a neglected public stall. It makes sense to at least scoop your litter boxes twice per day, & change the litter out as needed. Additionally it is suggested to have one litter box per cat per household, with one additional.

It's not hard to teach cats not to jump on the counter or table, as long as you give them their own places to jump on, ideally in their own zone somewhere in the house. They need height and understand territoriality so up in the window, if it's safe, or atop their own table (ours likes the potting table on the screen porch and an old lab table in the spare room, and his tower in the main room). In decades of cats in the family we never had them on kitchen surfaces. You train from the beginning you're fine.

Don't know if it was previously mentioned but get a spray bottle of water, set it on long narrow stream and use that when they jump up on wherever you don't want them. Obviously, be reasonable and don't just blast them. It should work for the kitchen counters and table. They are going to go on your couches so put some throws down for them. You'll see where they like to perch/sleep so cover accordingly. Get one of those red velvet hair remover things. You brush in one direction and it's very good at picking up hair. The sticky paper rolls are good for clothes.

Kittens do but most adult cats are lactose intolerant so don't waste the cream. Get those broth packets for a treat. Or the squeeze up treats. It's mousse-like and all cats love those. In fact, that's a great way for you to bond with the kitties. Churu brand squeeze ups are one brand. Cut the tip and gently squeeze it and the cat will lick it as it comes out. It's a nice way for you to hang out together. I also play toss the treat with a younger cat that visits. She loves to chase as I throw a hard treat across the floor. Sometimes she's not even hungry and we just go back and forth with the same treat. It gets both of our asses moving.

I’ve had Bengalis for years. The cats you purchased have very high energy levels and require lots of attention. Two of them will require twice as much attention. They are extraordinarily territorial. If you lock them away at night, they will not bond with you. They will become vocal and belligerent. They will smear on your pillow if they get near your bed.

Two Bengalis will reinforce each other's bad behavior exponentially, and they're going to be angry and raise hell during the day. They will absolutely take it out on your furniture and your home. They can get extremely destructive and refuse to use the litter box (their waste is one of the main ways they communicate).

They will not pay any attention to clickers or any noise training. Water is only effective as used; they won’t be trained.

I know you plan on sedating them but it really seems like the wrong fit. Please reconsider.

While a small minority of cats may be lactose intolerant and experience digestive issues when consuming dairy products, the majority of cats are able to digest milk and cream without any problems.

Milk and cream can be beneficial for cats as they provide essential nutrients like calcium and protein. These nutrients are important for maintaining healthy bones, muscles, and overall well-being in felines.

R396 "It is important to show new cats how to use the litter box to establish routine and prevent confusion and accidents. Cats learn by observing others, so modeling the desired behavior helps them understand where to go to relieve themselves, creating a harmonious living environment for the cat and its owner."

Just get a single, regular cat, and love it. Not a status symbol.

r394, I don't know where you get your cats from, but my 4 true rescue (all adults) Bengals were never as destructive , difficult, or bad as you make them out to be. They all have been very loving and well behaved (with treats) beasties.

R402 Bengals will not bond if they are shut away at night. They are very territorial and will not be happy kitties. They require more attention than most cats, and far more dramatic and destructive when they don't receive it.

A pair of them can truly team up to wreak all kinds of havoc. I've seen them target one member of a couple, which is really nervewracking for everyone.

As I keep reading this, I'm thinking, why would anyone want these cats, with all the unique problems they seem to create? Seriously - why? Because they're "special?" If I had to have a pet (which I don't) I'd want the easiest, simplest breed I could get.

[quote]R367 Well, my Brazilian housekeeper loves caring for cats.

Are you giving the housekeeper a raise, as you’re increasing their duties?

Tabby cats are the best. They're super sweet.

*This* cat tale will end in tears. Let us know, OP, when you suddenly have to rehome them.

-R404- Because they are part of his aesthetic. Screw the fact that they are difficult creatures. Hence all the wise words of warning, here.

She gets paid very well.

I might consider it during her performance review.

Well, they’re no Werther’s.

But truly, if my cats are going to load candy into their vaginas to fire at my housekeeper, I’d rather the candy be a type she’ll recognize.

You are a snob.

You will definitely want to reevaluate your current vacuum cleaner. You may need a more intense model designed for pet hair pick up.
