    Default Strange color cat

    Well, This morning a kitty is in my laundry room demanding entry into the house with a LOUD voice.

    Nope, not mine.

    However, kitty is very pretty (and tame).

    Somewhat a dark cinnamon color tiger, I have never seen one like that.

    Of course, resident cats don't like the company, now what...

    Barncat anybody?

    (pictures to follow)

    need pics!!! IF you want to keep said cat burgler, just keep it away from the rest for a bit and gradually introduce them. I never have that opportunity as sometimes a barn cat makes a bid to become a housecat. They don't stay long though, and want back out

    I hope that works, first FB uploads

    She bumrushed me when I walked in the house....is very talkative and quiet friendly, not quiet a snuggler though - not yet anyhow.

    So far I am thinking Cinnabun as name, Bunny for short

    I know, totally sunk

    She looks kinda like a Bengal cat. They have some very interesting coat colors and spot patterns. Also very independent and quite the characters I understand!

    Someone might be looking for this one...

    She's gorgeous!
    Every one of them had that look of a girl infatuated with horses, the happy, fated look of a passenger setting sail on the Titanic.

    She definately looks like a bengal. They're super personable kitties and can have some interesting quirks. (Mine like to try and get in the shower with me.) They are illegal in some states due to their ancestry. I had to rehome my girl because the breed is banned in Hawaii.

    I'd bet someone's looking for her. Maybe put an ad and/or posters around the area saying you found an unusual looking kitty, please describe

    Right when I saw the word LOUD, I immediately thought Bengal! After seeing your pics that kitty definitely is one!

    I have a Bengal and they are very loud and talkative cats. Bengals can be very expensive so I wouldn’t be surprised if that is a neighbors indoor cat that somehow got out and found you. I'd post fliers, etc, because someone is probably missing their kitty. If no one comes forward then congrats on your new Bengal.

    They are wonderful cats but will probably drive you a little mad. They talk all the time and have A LOT of energy. Go out and buy some cat toys and cat trees, if you don’t have them already. You're going to need them! My Bengal can jump about 5-6 feet and her favorite spots in the house are the highest perches she can reach. It’s not uncommon to find her on top of the blinds or even on top of the door when its open. Yes, she somehow gets up there. They (well most) also love water.

    If you do end up keeping her, I would recommend keeping her inside ONLY. Bengals can be very ADD’ish and not the brightest cats because the curiosity gets the best of them. Plus anyone who comes across one is most likely going to keep it because they are such pretty kitties. I know my Bengal probably wouldn’t last very long with all the temptations outside. She gets in trouble enough inside.

    I love Bengals and want to get another but my husband says he’d divorce me if I did. As I said they can be annoying because of how talkative they are and their high energy and she seems to pester him the most. LOL. Just my kind of cat!

    You may want to pop by a vet or shelter and have them check for a chip. Bengals are expensive and most people who pay that much for a cat chip them. It's worth a try.
