It all began like this...

Starbuck at 5 weeks

This all began a while ago when I started to look into purchasing an F3 Savannah cat. Well, it turned out that Hong Kong doesn't allow Savannahs to be imported and so I turned my attention to the bengal breed and found out they are very similar to the savannahs and was hooked!

After lots of reading, checking out different breeders, emailing and research (all done from the distant land of Hong Kong!), I found the cat I wanted. Believe it or not, it was the first kitten I saw online and it was the only breeder who had not gotten back to me! I almost went with another gorgeous boy from a super friendly breeder in Australia, Debbie, who has helped me so much, but in the end, I followed my gut. I'm sure he'll find a good home! It turned out that the breeder of the boy I wanted had gotten back to me but Yahoo! had filtered the email into my bulk mail box. So, I was thrilled when I called and found out that the brown spotted male bengal cat I wanted was still available. He was much more expensive than I had budgeted for as he was a show cat, but well worth it!
