When did you aboriginal apprehend about Bengals and what fabricated you adjudge to get one?
Where do I alike begin? I anticipate that back I was a little girl, I’ve consistently capital a Bengal Cat. Up until a year ago, it never acquainted like the appropriate time in my life.
About six weeks afore I got Audree, I had a funny dream. I dreamt that I was activity on an chance with a little babyish tiger, and we had become best friends. It’s adamantine to explain, I had the activity that I didn’t appetite to deathwatch up from that dream because it acquainted so absolute and right. I couldn’t stop cerebration about that dream, and aback remembered my ambition for a Bengal cat. From that moment forward, aggregate flowed naturally, and I was reminded of how I aboriginal begin Pokee (or was it how he begin me)?
Anyways, I remembered a adduce from one of my admired movies as a child, The Little Mermaid. It says, “Who says that my dreams accept to break aloof my dreams?” I absitively to chase for Bengal cats, cerebration to myself “Why not booty a look, there’s annihilation amiss with aloof looking.” Clicking on the actual aboriginal aftereffect in an internet search, the photos of this little babe bent me heart, and I couldn’t abide allurement about her. I anticipation to myself “Why not address a bulletin to them. It’s not like you accept to adjudge appropriate away.”
It was Fate
Next affair I know, I’m talking to a admirable adult called Jacky on the phone, who tells me about a Bengal babe that had been promised to addition else. However, alone a few canicule beforehand that being had canceled on her for alien reasons. What Jacky said abutting gave me goosebumps. She told me that the Bengal babe was the alone babe in the clutter and had three brothers. (Remember, I’m the alone girl, as well, and accept two brothers). She does comedy with her brothers sometimes, but she’s added like the girly-girl, brand to watch them play, but would rather do her own stuff. This brought aback so abounding adolescence memories.
