    So my husband got his dream cat for his 23rd birthday present. I know what breed this guy is but I thought it would be fun to let other people try to guess. He is a purebred from a breeder and is only 1 1/2 years old and only half grown and is already the same size as my other adult cats. This breed can take 4 years or longer to fully grow and mature. Any guesses?

    These two are with a flash just taken so he is still adjusting and a little scared

    I had to do clickable thumbnail images because they wouldn't resize properly.

    My guess is a bengal. Even if he isn't, he is sure a looker!

    Close but he's not a Bengal. [​IMG] He is WAY bigger then a Bengal. We do have a Bengal also and he towers over him already and they are about the same age.

    I'm not familiar with the hybrids at all, but I'm hazarding Savannah cat.

    Quote:Savannahs are *huge*.
    Rumor has it that some young children try to ride on them...
    That looks like a Bengal to me, although not normal coloring...

    Punk-a-doodle guesses right! He is a Savannah Cat! I had it in my signature too just to see if anyone noticed. He is REALLY big already. Like I said he is 1 1/2 and is already bigger then all my other cats.
