Hello,

My name is Peggy and I'm a long time lurker but a relatively new (proud) Bengal owner.
I'm a recent computer science bachelor graduate and I am starting my masters degree in September. I've always grown up with a cat around, so when I started my undergrad for the first 3.5-4ish years I was going crazy without one. I have a partner who is allergic to cats so when they agreed to have a cat as long as the cat wouldn't affect their quality of life too much I started the search for a 'hypoallergenic' cat. It was between getting a Bengal or getting a Russian Blue. We decided on the Bengal!

I am pleased to introduce Olympus.

He's a six-month-old silver (with gold accents) Bengal. Has the typical Bengal features: curious, playful, often rambunctious, talkative (especially in the mornings). He's extremely cuddly (when he wants to be) and doesn't mind being held (again, when he wants to be).
He does have an instagram account if you want to see more photos.
Olympus is learning new tricks! He knows how to sit down (if he wants a treat) and he's currently learning how to give me his paw for a treat.
From the day I brought him home he was extremely cuddly, we bonded... I want to say immediately. He's almost always by my side, although he's a little upset with me at the moment because he has to wear his cone of shame.

Welcome to our wonderful forum and congratulations on your bengal. Bengals are less hypoallergenic than most cats, but some who are allergic to cats do suffer a reaction to bengals, so if your partner is doing okay, that's wonderful.

Olympus is just a stunning bengal. We can never see too many pictures. The Gallery section was created just for that purpose.
