Bengal Kitten Introduction to adult cats – Part 1



chatzi is a six-month-old Bengal boy a local Cat Rescue Center called us one afternoon to see if we'd be interested in him as they thought he needed an experienced owner as he'd recently arrived unwanted and they've been flooded with inappropriate people to adopt him he's not a bad boy but without firm and consistent discipline he'd be very likely to develop many bad behavioral traits he's very intelligent and boisterous like many Bengal cats so he'll need careful supervision being introduced to our two cats Freya a seven-year-old Rescue Bengal former breeding Queen Antigo a two year old mixed breed and also a rescue the first thing is to keep him safely locked away in his own special room for the first three days oh well at least try to the reason for keeping a new cat locked away for the first three days is to allow the resident cats time to get used to his smell through the door and to allow supervised introductions tiga was first as he was fascinated by this visitor often sitting outside his door for long periods of time the escapee is caught and returned and runs over to meet his new brother fortunately there are no big problems with the first introduction teego role uncharacteristically this is a few times at chatzi just to assert dominance early this is teego's patch and chat sees a trespasser and he's too close chatzi adopts a classic submissive pose with a low down head not to be confused with lying on your back which is more of a defensive pose a tense standoff then happens with both cats looking at each other fortunately there are no flat ears or flicking tails to indicate possible confrontation incredibly confident as he is chatzi is somewhat knocked off his stride here teego moves around doing this amazing slow-motion walk avoiding making any sudden gestures that might escalate matters chatzi is frozen to the spot not necessarily by fear but just surveying the situation safely without creating any trouble we break up the first introduction to let both cats calm down and relax again although tiga wasn't really showing any signs of wanting to go a few hours later we bring Freya in she's a very timid middle-aged rescue Bengal you can see straight away that she doesn't want to stay we have no intention of keeping her in against her will but it's good for her to see chatzi for a moment and then see if she shows any signs of curiosity from the other side of the door later on the next day chatzi seems to be even more confident giving us an amazing display of fluffed up back curiously this is quite a half-hearted display as I've seen it much more pronounced and usually the tail doubling with he looks a bit like a miniature Stegosaurus teego responds with an equally half-hearted display you can see his back is arched but minimal fluffing up he then sets off again with his amazing slow-motion walking chatzi is clearly nervous running on pure instinct he's acting defensively but just because he thinks he should he probably hasn't met any other cats before and has no idea if he's in danger or not so better safe than sorry this whole episode is tense but with a minimum of aggression both are walking around strutting their stuff saying you know what to mess with me but without actually backing it up with any actions as Teager approaches he lets out a high-pitched sound at chatzi which doesn't seem aggressive but it's unusual as T go is never vocal but it is a warning Chertsey doesn't really react although he has got himself a little cornered there again chatzi results to his submissive head low position maybe because he's failing t go has come a little too close and t go is almost twice the size of him it always amazes me how cats can turn their back on a potential adversary in a tense situation like this but it happened so often it's not a fluke maybe there are unwritten rules of sportsmanship in the cat world again chatzi results to his head down submissive pose but keep watching he's not feeling completely beaten his ears go back and he makes a semi sudden move towards t go but take a look at his body language he's still low down he just wants to play but doesn't know how to instigate it and another sudden lunge it's almost as if chatzi wants to start something but doesn't want to make the first move his ears are completely back so he's clearly expecting or hoping something will kick off T go plays it ultracal as usual barely even reacting to chatzi's provocation chatzi's almost like that annoying kid in the playground that keeps picking at people to get some attention not so much a bully but very mischievous this has all become a bit too tense maybe just for us and we cause a little distraction to break the tension notice chatzi's tail position as he moves away from t go and over to us he goes straight up like a happy confident cat chatzi gets a new era of confidence and moves over to t go little brats i guess he hasn't read the rules on cat etiquette and turning your back this was very rude of Jesse and we give Tico the option to leave if he's had enough but he makes it clear that the little brat is much more interesting than leaving the room all this happened on the second day of chatzi's life it is new home subscribe to my channel to see the next film and find out what happens later in rank

  1. I can just imagine Teego's thoughts.
    "You wanna leave Teego?"
    Teego: "Fuck no this little shit just tried to slap me. Lemme at him!"

  2. I don’t know if you can help or if your even going to respond but I have a 3-4 year old persion-mancoon kitten then we also have a 7-8 year old cat he is just a normal cat breed I don’t know his actual breed but they have hated each other for as long as the kitten was here and am pretty sure he just wants to play but the older cat doesn’t so he starts hitting back and now the older cat doesn’t trust to the point were if the kitten gets to close he could not even be looking at the older cat but if the kitten is to close he will get whacked is their a way to solve this problem?

    Also a cat visits my backyard door every now and again and they see to hate it but I don’t know why I think it’s a female because it’s kinda skinny compared to my cats

  3. I had a cat who always picked on one specific cat. He would arch his back go on his toes side step over to her smack her then back up then side step back to her n slap her again. He was such a bad cat. I miss him. He also would drag other male cats around like kittens. He was also neutered on time. So he was just a really weird cat

  4. That house has gotta stink so bad! And there’s shit litter all over the floor on carpet! If the owners were bright they’d have hardwood floors or a garbage set-up for this!

  5. Holy clean your house you slob. Its such a mess your cats went and tossed litter all over the place to try and cover it up.

  6. never seen anything like this. why such tension? surely the humans run things? EH. WRONG! lol certainly no dominant people here. these cats run everything here. the awful organization and disgusting kitty litter mess. im sure loving and good with human/ cat relations, but get it together sheeesh

  7. This reminds me so much of my baby boy, Blaze. He used to play rough and he was really scared of other animals at first.
    Today, he's trying to make friends with the older cats (one elderly lady named Callie and one stunningly gorgeous lady named Misha), but they still haven't forgiven him for his rambunctious kitten days.

  8. Okay YouTube I’m watching it, after 3 years of you pestering my recommendations, I’m watching it… Are you happy now?

  9. First shot is cat litter all over a carpet. Disgusting. Put a tray under the cat box at the very least! (or, y'know, don't keep a cat box on a carpet?)

  10. I have two Bengals and our younger boy is almost exactly 9 months younger and really wanted to play and love on his new older brother while said older brother really didn't want to have anything to do with this new fur ball.
    Took a few days until the hissing stopped and a few more weeks to get to the point they are at now where they will clean each other and will cuddle together on our laps or will squeeze into small spaces together but they got there eventually.
    I'm glad that this video shows that bengals aren't any different to other cats. I have done the same thing with mixed rescues before who still live together at my moms place and even though those two are 7 years apart it took less than an hour to get these two to be on friendly terms. They don't cuddle but will sometimes play and clean each other kind of in passing. This now 15 year old boy just really doesn't care about anything so we weren't surprised when he just accepted this new kitten even though he had been a single cat for a few years by then after his former friend died.

  11. Can anyone tell me what type of cat Tigo is mixed with? I had a cat just like this. Thank you so much if anyone can help.

  12. Awww, I miss my Bengal girl, Zoe. She was a rescue too; I rescued her at age 8 and she left me for the Rainbow Bridge at age 17 in 2015. She was the most beautiful cat to me. This video popped up in my recommendations, and because of this video, I'm going to check out the rescue page to see if I can rescue another ❤
