After the passing of Spot back in May, my girlfriend Emily and I decided it was time for a new companion. Today we picked up our 12 week old Bengal Cat Max (I nicked named him McLovin when Emily is not around!).

For those who don’t know what a Bengal Cat is, it’s a cross breed between a wild Asian Leopard Cat and a domestic house cat. Max is around a 7th generation, which means he is about 7 times removed from the actual wild Asian Leopard. However he retains the wild looking features and markings. Bengal cats are known for their very ‘dog’ like personalities. They are very different from a common domestic cat!
