So, it’s been a couple of hours and one kitten, Binx has had an injury while playing with her mouse. She’s smaller then her sister but she won’t let that deter her from having her fun. She thought she could twist her way at leaping for the mouse in mid air. She landed on her paw the wrong way. We weren’t sure it was a break so we took her to the animal hospital for special care. Her first trip to the vet and she was real good with the examination. Everyone there just marveled at her good looks.
Binx being a good kitten at the vet.
As it turns out, no break, thankfully, but poor Binx must stay confined. How do you keep a playful and energetic kitten still? Its next to impossible with her sister, Nala wanting to play ALL the time. Most times, Binx allowed us to hold her while she played with her mouse on the cat tree. She was content batting and biting it as we held her, surprisingly. We purchased a portable playpen for the kittens to keep them contained in a smaller space while Binx got enough time to heal her sprained ankle. Good thing kittens heal quickly.
We are proud servants of 2 Bengal kittens. I’ve been thoroughly fascinated with the breed for many years but didn’t really think I’d ever have one of my own. I have owned a few cats over my lifetime and I have to say my tuxedo cat is by far one of the smartest ones I have had myself(until now). She can fetch like dogs do, sit on command and stay. Hunt for someone to feed her and then guide them down the hall. And to top it off she understands your moods. Blackie is 9 year old who is a bundle of joy and a one of a kind cat.
We are happy to have introduced 2 Bengals kittens to our home.
I will say, looking back, it took months to decide on having another kitten as an addition. It’s a big commitment. But finally caved to this idea.
There is nothing like the anticipation of a new kitten. On June 22, 2013, it was to be different. We were expecting 2, 9 week old Bengal kittens.
We got their safe zone ready and waited in anticipation for their arrival. Now, we have to decide on names.
This is Blackie, the Tuxedo Cat!
