is a real favourite Bengal, and has some sweet pet-names
like Jinky-Winky, or Winkles. He loves to go out into
the 'play area' (shared by all our Bengals, as well
as the British Shorthair cats), and is always keen in
the evenings, as he know he will be 'let out' for the
evening to run and play and climb up high.Jinks is a
very gentle Bengal Stud cat, and has had many comments
as such from judges at the Bengal/All Breeds Championship
shows. He is often referred to a 'shy, gentle lad, with
a fabulous temperament'!
is descended from our very first Bengal Stud boy, and
we wish to continue this Bengal line as the temperaments
are just so good, that it is a real bonus to have good
quality kittens born here, and to know that their temperaments
will be second-to-none!
Jinks has won many prizes and cups at Bengal Cat shows,
and All Breed Championship cat shows (see Awards page).
He is not taken out much now, as he prefers to stay
at home with his Bengal and British Shorthair cat friends.
If he suspects it is a 'show day', he will hide his
head under his blanket as though to say 'I can't see
you,so you can't see me!!. Once at the show though,
his fabulous temperament over-rules all else, and he
is his normal happy, friendly, inoffensive self.
Jinks has a habit of hiding his chicken bones under
his blanket in his bed. Sometimes we may be fooled into
thinking that he eaten the whole lot (something Bengal
cats frequently do), only to pick him up, and realise
that he smells like an 'old bone'!)
after searching under his bed do we discover the 'old
bone', put away for safe keeping!
Another funny little 'Bengal' thing that Jinks does,
is jumping onto our backs when bending down to clean
his litter tray. He then starts sharpening his claws
on your back, which is not always so funny if you only
have a thin shirt on!. He is a bit of a bengal 'Monkey'!
(but such a lovable one!).
