  1. you let the first cat fight the new one, and yoo are just standing there silent? you need to talk to them and get them toghter

  2. Mia is in hunt mode & Ceasar knows it. You will have to distract Mia with some hunt games yourself, as this constant hunting/ territory mode will begin to stress Caesar out, He can become withdrawn as he gets older so, ACT NOW!!

  3. I have 3 Bengals and with each one I just let them loose to mix with each other. on the first day there was some hissing but on the second day they were playing together and enjoying each others company. It was my breeders advice not to separate them and she was right

  4. Putting a cat into a carrier for introduction is the worst way to do it because the cat in the carrier feels trapped…
    What you did here, is cause unnecessary stress for the kitten…
    You separated them for 12 days… They had time to hear and smell each others trough the door (cats have a sense of smell 50 to 70 times better than us and a sense of hearing even more powerful)… You adult cat KNEW there was a new comer on her territory like, 5 secondes after he was in the house!…
    Unless your Bengal cat is agressive and territorial the carrier was unnecessary…
    Plus, kittens usually have what we call an "immunity" witch means adult cats won't hurt them so again, the carrier was unnecessary… And your kitten looks almost as big as your adult cat… Adult cats will hiss and growl at kitten but won't hurt them…
    Next time you introduce a resident adult cat to a kitten skip the carrier… Use food and play instead… And give, food, attention and affection to your resident cat first even though it hisses and growls at you…

  5. Looks and acts almost exactly like my Bengal Cleo (Cleopatra). Really useful to see that a cat with her temperament can find a way to relate to a kitten without violence. I am hoping to get a kitten in a few months.

  6. Stay awat from canned cat foods…they contain alot of phosferous and is leading cause of kidney disease/failure

  7. I loved the mutual sharing food and the somersault Mia did was very funny! I enjoyed your video very much.

  8. Mia looks almost exactly like my cat. I think she may be an Egyptian Mau rather than a Bengal. I live in Thailand, I got my cat Chompu, a female like Mia, at Chatuchak weekend market, the shopkeeper said Bengal… but most Bengals have sort of rosettes, lighter in the middle with a darker border. If you google "brown Egyptian Mau" and go to images results… there you'll see cats very like Mia or Chompu. Bengals are usually quite vocal, Mia barely made a noise, just like Chompu. She only rarely meows, usually at night or early morning, not loud and only one or two meows.

    At the same market they do have Bengals, bigger spots, lighter in the center, usually vocal. Also, Bengals in Thailand have quite short, pelt like coats because they have more Asian Leopard Cat genes than most Bengals bred in Europe or North America. In fact, if you visit a Bengal breeder in Southeast Asia, they likely have some Asian Leopard Cats for breeding new lines.

    I'm trying to convince my wife to allow me to adopt a Korat too, someone for Chompu to play hide 'n seek with!

    BTW…if you look at those "brown Egyptian Mau" google images…you can also see some Bengal pictures here and there too, so they are frequently confused for each other. When I got Chompu, I though she maybe had some "mutt" in her because her spots developed in a slightly non-standard Bengal style… researching a bit lead me to believe she's more like a Mau. Either way…Beautiful cats!
