About Midori

Adopted by Sandra and Andy

Midori, the green-eyed kitty of mystery. She is such a striking cat that neighbors in a multi-million dollar community took notice when she came soliciting food and attention. One neighbor took her to a vet. Others posted her on their neighborhood network, trying to find her family. She would appear and then disappear, but she was always very friendly and loving to those helping her. A member of this community had adopted from us, and she called to see if we could help her. When she sent the adorable photo (below) showing her spotted tummy, how could we not say Yes?

People think of Bengals as beautiful brown cats with rosettes or spots. An alternative to rosettes is a “Marble” coat pattern which consists of a big bullseye on each flank and other irregular markings. An alternative to the Brown or Snow Bengal colors is a Blue ( grey and cream) colored coat. Midori is a Blue Marble Bengal.

Here is what Google says about them:

“The Blue Bengal cat is the rarest and most unusual coloring for the Bengal cat. If you ever come across a Blue Bengal, no one will judge you for taking as many pictures as possible.

The blue Bengal will have a steel-blue or powdery-blue base coat with cream tones. These cats will have dark grey markings and hazel or green eyes.”

I had never seen a Blue Bengal til I met Midori. I sent her photos off to our Bengal expert in Oregon, who explained to me what we had. Wow!

Midori was very well-behaved at the vet. He found that she was five years old and in excellent health, spayed, and her combo test was neg/neg. Though she was always friendly with us, we soon learned that she did not like other cats. We also determined that she was very food motivated. She would eat anything we put in front of her. When you see a cat who has been living outside and does not like other cats, it is a safe guess that they were competing for the same source of food.

Midori needs a home that will give her space for entertainment and exercise. I always say living with Bengals is “a lifestyle choice”, and Bengal lovers know their kitty has needs for entertainment and exercise. They must want to embrace the challenge of outthinking their super-smart kitties. Bengals are not a good choice for families with young children -who may let them out. We don’t know how Midori is with dogs, but she wants to be the only cat in the home.

Whoever is lucky enough to adopt Midori will have a beautiful, intelligent, athletic kitty as their loving, loyal companion.

Midori is spayed, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, microchipped, eats wet and dry food, and is litterbox perfect.

She is fostered by Harriet in Santa Cruz.
