    Here's Kipling, crashed out in the crook of my wife's arm. It's a hard life eh? :biggrin:

  2. Awwww really cute! :smile:
    Thanks for sharing it.
     
  3. How cute! Kittens are irresistible.

    Also, I'm impressed that the kitten still has its claws. A lot of people in America get their cats declawed. I know in Germany that's illegal - is it in the UK?

    If he's part bengal, did you get him from a cattery or from the shelter? Is it hard to get a full blood leopard cat there? (it's hard to get some full blood cats here in Maryland).

    Yes it is illegal in the UK. Even if it wasn't, there is no way I would deprive any cat from it's prime method of defence and escape, irrespective of the damage the claws might do to me or my belongings.

    No, he didn't come from a shelter but from a person that had a bengal that "got out" whilst in season.

    Thanks again guys.

    Gosh, I'd forgotten just how manic kittens are! He never seems to stop, apart from when he's sleeping!

    :biggrin:
     
  11. Yeah, they sure have it rough.
    Gorgeous image, very well done!
     
  12. You do WHAT? :eek: 
    But then it wouldn't be a cat anymore! Poor cats! :mad: 
     
  13. Hear hear!
     
  14. I don't do it! I actually lose a little bit of respect for my friends who prefer their carpets to their pet's digits. The shelters here give spiels to talk owners out of it, but it is legal. Our two cats both have all their claws.

    Martin, I'm still enamored by how cute your kitten is, and how well you photograph it!

  15. Kristin, that's good to hear. That "you" was rather directed to the US as a whole, not to you directly. I'm sorry if I haven't made myself clear enough. :redface:
