    I came across this while reading about bengals on the internet.

    Wow. I'm not saying I believe everything it has to say about their problems 100%, but still.

    Please post your opinions!

    I've got to talk to my friend again about hers. Yes, he loved to chew on your hands if he liked you and he didn't quite understand how fragile skin really is. He did mark and make ungodly noises. He had the run of the basement and also knew how to crawl through the ductwork (very large, very old house). He couldn't be trusted with the other housecats for long periods of time, but I've yet to see something funnier than the time we let him and Sawyer meet face to face. Sawyer wasn't sure how to act at all (looks like a cat, but doesn't smell like one), so he settled for this enlongated crouch to sniff faces while still being close enough to me to touch. The Bengal just moseyed on over, rubbed noses and came to say hi to me.

    That is really sad. And actually I believe it more than I disbelieve it.

    What bugs me as well is that the wild cats are used to living in LOTS of space. However, I read a letter (on a different site) saying that she couldn't let her cat out of the house, though she was always trying to escape.
    They aren't made to live in a house :(.
