They come in all kinds of colours and patterns, John Cleese has an orange and white one.

Someone nearby has a Bengal cat. We sometimes see it wandering around alone. Why anyone would allow such a beautiful creature to do that I have no idea. We have many coyotes wandering around here. They are often seen during the day and are quite big compared to the ones I used to see in NJ.

Bengals are gorgeous. But I wouldn't have even the most common moggy wandering around outside in coyote country.

We saw one on a leash in a pet store. Didn’t know quite what it was because it was quite a bit bigger than a cat, but smaller than leopard etc. and yes it was gorgeous.

The coyotes are used to humans and are not frightened. Here there have been many reports of coyotes trying to take dogs whilst they are on leash. One actually managed to run off with a chihuahua whilst it was on leash with its owner...this was in broad daylight. We have quite a lot of black foxes too.

All this talk of Bengal cats, I had it in my head that they were regulated/restricted in certain places, so I asked Wikipedia. Sure enough, in certain US cities they are, and were regulated in the UK until 2007.

Then I looked at temperament, and found this:

A breed apart

Cute buggers though.

"Smart, energetic, and playful" = "will take your arm off if you cross them".

Well it's all theirs, tbh. We are just their helper monkeys, until they evolve opposable thumbs. Then watch out.

Bengals are illegal in GA, or I would love to have one.
