Hi, I am after some advice please? A few years ago our Bengal ''Simi'' sadly passed away due to old age, she had an asthma problem and the vets pills and inhaler did help but she was old and we think it eventually got the better of her.
Since Simi's passing we have had another child who is now 3, we feel he is old enough now to be able to deal with another cat properly and we feel that another Bengal would be ideal.
I have seen mature ex breeding cats for sale and also kittens, I think a mature cat might be best around young kids?
Ideally I would like a male and he would have to be an outdoor cat as we live in the middle of nowhere and have a large , secure garden. Simi was an indoor cat and quite timid but I feel that cats should be able to go outside when ever they please, especially with two kids in the house, I dont think a timid indoor cat would be a good match with a 3 year old boy.
Any advice guys on buying a mature Bengal male? Would an ex breeding cat be an outdoor cat?
Im not looking for show winners, dont really care about pedigree papers etc, so long as it has the Bengal temperament and confidence I am happy.
