4 yr old Mona Lisa and her 5 yr old mother Esmerelda are a bonded pair. You may be wondering how these two beautiful, happy, affectionate, purebred pedigreed Bengals found themselves in need of rescue. They were among five breeder’s Bengals kept in cages. The breeder went out of business, and a kind-hearted woman took all five Bengals to her home. Health issues caused her to be no longer able to care for them. California Bengal Rescue agreed to help. Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is working in tandem with CBR on behalf of Mona Lisa and Esmerelda, who are fostered in Wenatchee WA. They are now ready for a next-step Foster or Adoption. We are looking to place them as soon as possible.

They have found happiness in their foster home, freed from caged lives, with loving socialization and a healthy raw, fed diet. At first, both were shy, but wow! have they come out of their shells! They love being in the laps of their Foster Mom and Dad. Esmerelda enjoys watching Animal Planet, while Mona Lisa prefers hanging back quietly. At night they romp playfully with the family Shepherd, and the entertainment begins! They will settle down for the night after a high-protein bedtime meal.

Mona Lisa and her mother Esmerelda, with their matched energy levels, have fun chasing and playing together, followed by a loving grooming session, then a cozy nap or nighttime sleep curled up together. This behavior is typical of “Life with Bengals”. A Cat Wheel, Cat Tree, interactive playtime, feather toys, catnip balls, space for the ‘zoomies’ where they can run, and raw diet is a must.

Bengal breed or high energy cat breed experienced adopters are preferred. These girls will be happiest as only cats in a quiet home with someone home most of the time. No young children or other cats, a cat-friendly non-aggressive dog may be okay.

Their Foster says this about them: “They have come such a long way. They have been a joy to Foster, and watch them develop into such outgoing, energetic, fun bundles of joy! They are so good with our young German Shepherd. I have found such joy in fostering them and watching them come out of their shells!”

Mona Lisa and Esmerelda are real treasures that will love you like no other, with continued deep gratitude for an enriched life in soft surroundings with loving attention and unrestricted access throughout the home. Are you ready to share your home and life with two exquisite Bengal girls? They are ready and waiting for you.

Mona Lisa is spayed, vaccinated, FELV tested, eats wet food, and is litterbox perfect.

She currently lives with her owner in Wenatchee.

Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to matching exceptional cats with qualified adopters who will cherish their pets and create an ideal forever home.
