You asked for a photo of Charlie. I promised one. Here is my darling jungle boy!
You have no idea how hard it is to get a portrait of Charlie. My not-so-little buddy is often in constant motion. I took these two photos in the dimming light of dusk on the screened porch this evening.
Charlie is a snow marble Bengal - a cat with more personality than you can imagine. Bengals are very "dog-like." They follow you around, come when called, and talk a lot. They love to walk on a leash. Charlie even plays fetch, just like a dog. The photo of Charlie with his mouth open is a normal occurrence. He holds conversations and responds verbally with an extensive vocabulary of words and sounds.
Bengals are muscular, acrobatic, and energetic cats. They are confident (hence Savannah's annoyance with him), curious, and love to run and climb. They can destroy Steuben glass candlesticks with ease. They also love water. Charlie likes to sit on the tub when I bathe or shower.
Bengals crave attention. Unless Charlie is enjoying his porch time, he will always choose to be with me, moving from room to room as I do. If Charlie wants to be pet, he uses his paw to guide my hand to his head. He's quite a character - my best friend.
Don't you think he belongs on a beauty blog?
