"Benny and Joon"
We adopted Benny and Joon together in mid-October 2017. They are litter-mates, probably siblings—a male and a female. At first we thought the female was part Siamese, as she is white, but she had a long, striped raccoon-style, very non-Siamese tail, and someone told us both cats had Bengal markings. So we looked them up online and, sure enough, found lots of information about the Bengal breed. So although they were strays brought in from Hurricane Irma. Joon resembles a snow Bengal. Benny’s coat is dark and light brownish grey in a marble pattern. They were beautiful kittens, and are growing into truly beautiful cats. They both love to be handled, petted, and brushed. They are active, playful, entertaining, lovable, self-sufficient, curious, and adventurous. When they are separated for a while, one will call out to the other and always gets a quick response, so they reconnect in short order. They look out for each other and also ask for attention from us periodically—but not in a pestering way. We didn’t realize how quiet (dull?) our household had become until they moved in. They add a great deal of fun and entertainment to our lives. We could not be happier to have them. Thank you, Peggy Adams!
