1. This is selfish and just a bit insane.

 

Can't so called "cat lovers" adopt a kitten or cat from a shelter? Humans are just a bit extra.

2. Introducing wild genes might stengthen the domestic cat

but overbreeding them for physical traits is going to cause as many problems as breeding designer dogs has.

In addition, even F4 domestic/wild hybrids are high energy, high maintenance cats and certainly not for everyone. I've seen friends struggle with trying to wear their ocicat or savannah out sufficiently to get a good night's sleep. Most of found that one of these is essential:

3. Such beautiful cats

But as much as I'd love one, I am perfectly content with my little rescue dragon.

4. I have a rescue Bengal and she's a real challenge. First owner couldn't handle her

and kept her in the garage for 6 months.

I'm glad we could give her a better life, but she is a real handful and absolutely will not tolerate other cats in the house. I would never get another one and would actually like to find another home for her but they would have to accommodate her demands.

She demands to be outside most of the time so, after 2 years, i finally gave in and let her come in and out as she chooses. Very loud meow! Startles people when they first hear it.

She does a great job keeping down the mice and vole population in our neighborhood.
