Ever since moving in with my GF (now wife) about five years ago, I've been catless. A home without a cat is, for me, just a little bit empty-feeling. And anyway, I want our son to grow up with a cat--buddy, best friend, undisputed master.... And I really, really want a Bengal: an acquaintance has one, and they truly are as bright, inquisitive, and social as advertised. I just can't justify spending $500-600 on a purebred cat, and Bengals don't tend to show up at rescue shelters 'round here. Pity. I know this is late, but considered a Manx?
