Bengal kittensYesterday, Linda and I finally found a pair of kittens that she's not allergic to. They're a couple of bengal kittens, and we've already fallen in love with them.

They were very scared when we first brought them home and opened up the box in our big scary living room - especially the male - so we moved them to the smaller master bath, where they still are right now. They've gotten accustomed to the room, and we've let them out into the bedroom a couple times, which they explored with hesitation.

To belie its wild background, a Bengal is described as lively, playful, affectionate, and intelligent. Bengals love water, and will splash in the sink, or even jump in to the shower with you. The Bengal combines the exotic look and feel of the small forest-dwelling wild cats they descend from with the dependability and loving temperament of the domestic cat. For a walk on the wild side with an affectionate companion, you can't go wrong with a Bengal.

Bengal kittensThe construction workers are installing some shelving and fixing up a couple of the doors in our house early this week, so we'll need to keep the kittens safely tucked away somewhere. I'm sure they'd still be terrified to move into another room, so I'm hoping the guys don't need to do too much work in our bathroom.

We haven't named them yet, so feel free to post comments with ideas for names. Linda wants to name them after wild animals, but I refuse to name him "Ben" and her "Gal".

My brother-in-law has a cat named, "Kitty".

My dog's name is Cupid, since his birthday is on Valentine's Day.

Names are so hard to come up with.

I always wanted to name a cat Jeebus, but how about Butch and Spike?

I've given up on the name Silver for the silver-looking one. Maybe D'Argo and Chiana?
