I currently have have eight that keep me busy. Four of them are under two years old and live- wires. My first generation of Bengals have all passed, after living into their late teens. I was missing their orneriness and found two sisters that were a year old being re-homed. The other two youngsters are twin black boys dumped at a cemetery in the hot July heat last summer. The older four are all rescues that bring so much joy to my life.
Too bad your family moved to such a hot climate. That would be a hard adjustment from the mountains.
