is so much that is special about Serenity that it is hard to
know where to start. Perhaps, we'll start with her
areas that need improvement. Serenity does not have good
contrast or spot size, but when it comes to the downsides of
this cat, it just about ends there. Her pattern is
fantastic as her itty bitty spots are aligned in great
horizontal flow, and best of all she has an adult full
expression of the white belly pattern. The white on her
cheeks was the final push I needed to keep Serenity; it
reaches so high - in between her cheek flashes. White
bellies are one of the more difficult pattern traits to
achieve on a Bengal, so this makes Serenity spectacular.
Serenity's body, hip structure, and tail all replicate that of
a small forest-dwelling cat. Her feet and legs are stout
and sturdy, yet her torso and neck are lithe, lean, and
athletic. Serenity has the length and flexibility to
turn her body in the shape of a U when need be. Her
tail, thick and powerful, extends from her rounded rump to
function as a the perfect counter weight when flipping through
the air. Her hips - wide, high, straight, and muscular -
produce enough power to send Serenity soaring six to seven
feet in the air while stalking the high flying toys.
This cat is built to survive the natural selection process.
And then, there is Serenity's face. Her nose and eyes
are both set exactly where I want them low on the face.
Nose - between the whisker pads. Eyes on the front third
of her skull. Her nose leather - with the beautiful
bottom flair - is puffed and fleshy. He eyes - rounded
and large - dominate her face. Her ears - wide based and well cupped - could
capture the slightest sound for far away.
Serens is here to stay.
