Any advice appreciated...
I’ve inherited a Bengal from my brother in law who rehomed one through a mutual friend (he only had her two weeks). She’s 2 years old, the previous owner gave us a lovely letter regarding her character, vet records and the breeder where she was Purchased.
Her back story is, she was the only kitten from the litter and was rejected by her mother, and the owners who took her on already had a Bengal which bullied her. I’ve only had her a week she’s very very timid she eats, uses her box and occasionally plays but you can’t really get near her before she darts off, she has started sleeping on my bed at night but again won’t let me stroke her. I’ve rehomed cats before usually exotic breeds, though never a Bengal. I know it takes time for cat to trust you etc. But mainly I want her to be happy here and not scared of us. She just doesn’t seem like the typical loud outgoing Bengal, does anyone have any tips they can share?
In addition, We do have a dog who is cat friendly as he’s grown up in a feline household he’s also tiny and loving so no threat there as such however,. Nala (our Bengal) doesn’t seem to like the dog much either... I’m hoping she’ll get used to him. She’s been passed from pillar to post and I want to give her a happy loving home that she loves.
