Facts about Ramses

  • Breed: Bengal
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Born ~2009, Male, Brown Marbled Bengal

Look at those green eyes! Ramses is a big cat, 12+ pounds. He was seen under a car and, with a little encouragement, happily entered the home nearby, and pleased to visit strangers. The nice homeowner there brought him to a shelter. He stayed in a 2’x 3’ cage while waiting for his family to come for him. No one did and after quite some time the shelter contacted Purebreds and said “Can you help him?” Glad to.

After a long day of driving through traffic, he arrived at his foster home. He explored his room, brushed past our legs, and checked everything out. He has an unusual kind of confidence and a large personality. He will give a single meow to greet you when you arrive. Ramses is a good natured guy, but you never forget that he is in the room and has his own wants and interests. He is a cat that makes you respect him.

He is, of course, a gorgeous Bengal, His very rich colors are unusual. They positively glow in the sunlight-- rich deep browns and auburns with a striking marbled pattern. Most people think of Bengals as being “spotted” with rosettes. However some Bengals are “marbled” with a high drama dark and light pattern. Of course, his green, green eyes are wonderful with this coloring.

Ramses has been to the vet and had a blood panel taken. He is a healthy boy. He has lost some muscle tone from his weeks in a small cage but he is regaining his sleek lines quickly.

With his confident manner, he is a cool dude. I expect (and this is a guess) he would be fine with dogs that are big enough to play with him. So far he seems to be ok with cats. Bengals do best with other Bengal cats or exotics. I seldom suggest that Bengals would be appropriate for young children. These magnificent cats are companions for adult humans who want to live in connection with such an intelligent animal.

Bengals are a life style choice. If you are the guardian of a Bengal,you need to be willing to design your home and activities to suit your cat’s needs. This is true of all cats, of course, but even truer of Bengals. First and foremost, Ramses’ human needs to be able to make sure he can keep him safe inside. Most Bengals can open doors with lever arm door handles. (You need round door knobs and keyed deadbolts) When Bengals get out, they tend to wander much farther from home than other cats-- a couple miles is common and they often never get home again. This is why they show up in shelters so frequently and is likely what happened to Ramses. He got out, got lost, and never got home.

Bengals are so smart they need an environment rich in opportunities to exercise, to play, to figure things out, to be with their humans. They need space. You cannot leave one alone in an apartment all day without him or her becoming bored. Bored Bengals can get into trouble. Often Bengal guardians build enclosed outside catios for them with lots of climbing opportunities. Those are great. These kitties are strong athletes with muscles of steel. They generally play harder with other non-Bengal cats than those cats may enjoy.

I had a would be adopter who wanted a Bengal to companion her Persian. No.

This impressive boy will be a very good companion with his confidence and intelligence. He is a little unusual as a Bengal in that he is a lap cat (when he chooses).

He eats wet and dry food , loves Greenies, and is litter-box perfect.

His foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.

About Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of purebred and other exceptional cats.

Our mission is to educate pet owners, breeders, and shelters about our breeds, and to place our cats with Forever Families who will give them the proper care and love they deserve. We carefully match cats with their Forever Families by evaluating each cat's personality, temperament, and special needs. Then we determine the best fit for both the cat and the new family. Please note that we do NOT ship cats.

Our adoption fee is $175 unless otherwise noted. This fee allows us to provide excellent vet care for the cats that really need it. The healthy kitties make it possible for the sick ones to be saved.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our cats are neutered or spayed, vaccinated and FELV/FIV negative. We are not a shelter. All of our cats are fostered in private homes. We ask that anyone wanting to meet one of our cats first fill out our online application. These cats are treated like members of our family, and we want to ensure that you will do the same.

When you adopt from Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue, you are saving TWO lives - the cat you adopt and the cat who gets to take its place in Rescue!

Our Adoption Process...

First, call the name of the foster mother if you are interested in an individual cat. Once you've chatted, she will ask you to fill out our easy online application. Just "Click to submit"! Next, one of our wonderful volunteers will quickly contact your veterinary and personal references. Then they will give you a call to chat and answer any questions or concerns you may have about the adoption process. Once approved we will help you set up a time to come and meet the kitty or kitties you want. If it's a good match all around you will be asked to sign a contract and pay the adoption fee and you can take the kitty home that very day.

Our adoption fee is $175. That includes the kitty, spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, tested for FIV/FELV.

We do not ship pets, however, you are welcome to put in an application and once approved make plans to come out and meet the kitty and fly it back with you.
