    We got five chooks a few years ago and the kids got to name them - they went well for the first four but then ran out of names.

    So, the last chooks name is “Missy”, which is short for her full name “Missy no name”

    Two Bengals?

    You're mad. Mine is nearly 15, and he's still a menace.

    Yeah, they were generally good goofball kitties, but yes... never again with purebreeds.

    It can't be nearly as bad as a Siamese (or Thai) in heat.

    Neko - Japanese for Cat

    I would have given it an Asian takeaway sounding name.

    'Dinner' comes to mind.

    Another one is 'Garden-Shitting Bastard Cat' as I call the ones that wake me in the night to defacate and crush helpless garden plants, once a cat had dihorrea and my garden smelled like toxic Biohazard!

    edit: I'm just kidding btw, but only about those names.. :lol::thumbup:

    A Bengal is.. An unique and interesting cat. And a whole new level. As I said, mine, at 15, is still a menace. Affectionate s hell, but a destructive force of nature at the same time. I've yet to find a cat that can both out-think, and overpower a Bengal. Unless you start going into the Savannah cats and the like.

    Siamese and Thai (and Javanese, which is what I had before we got the Bengal), do share many traits - demanding, vocal (though Bengals have a truly unique "voice", generally quite loyal (as far as cats go), ridiculously playful, and probably too damn smart for their own good.

    Problem is, Bengals are just so damn strong, so they can do stuff a lot of other cats can't. Like open the fridge. Once they figure out that nugget, you're screwed. I still need to post the video I have of Viggo opening the fridge. Worse still, he figured out that he should close it again, if he didn't want to get in trouble.

    I can't imagine dealign with two of them. I'm so glad our second kitty is a little black rescue, she balances the scales a bit, and is just totally never a problem in any way. I'd get a Bengal again, but I'd get another rescue to balance it out.

    Oh, as for the names, Viggo and Aspen. Viggo named after the actor that played Aragorn in Lord of the Rings (about the time we got him), and Aspen, named after, well, a tree (and ski resort), because I was standing in the middle of a forest in the US when she was offered to me, and I decided to keep her.

    Or nothing. Bloody things only come when you have something they want, not because they respond to you calling them.

    My new cat does, I don't think she's figured it out yet. :D Mind you, she won't come into my room, the dogs have ruined that.

    Oh, God. It was bed enough when I had a tabby (probably part Maine Coon) that used to get into the cupboards. I'm thinking a latch would be a good idea.

    Our new fridge has this, for that reason. I even have a video of him failing to open it.

    Nah, no-one guessed. He sounded just like a certain snail that he shared names with. :)
