New Breed of Exotic Cat Retails for $22,000

I already have 2 Bengals, and the male (Pumbaa) is now 20.5 pounds @ 18 months with 6 months left to get fully grown.

I'll keep my $22,000 thankyouverymuch!

I have a dog and the gf has a cat.
We both love the dog, I hate the cat. Go figure.

Hey GT, my girlfriends parents just bought a Bangal last weekend. Her dad is a vet and their dog died recently and he is suffering from withdrawal from being without a pet. Anyway, apparently he was looking at Savanahs too and found a male he really wanted but he cost $8000!!! He decided to go with the bengal...

Yeah it depends on the breeder as they set their own prices.

I found out the $22,000 exotic cat, is just a Savanah with a rediculas price tag.
The breeder I got my bengals from only charges $2400 for her Savanahs.
Maybe my next one...

I hope your girlfriend's parents like there new Bengal kitten, he should have gotten 2, then he can just sit back and watch the crazyness.

We have two cats both were stray kittens about 4yrs apart free except for food and vet. expences. They irritate me just as much as a 22k cat would. Seriously though I`m ok with them.. its kind of fun when they stealth around the house and when we make eye contact/staredown..I`ll growel or hiss at em and they take off.

LOL!! Don't try that with a Begal or Pixybob, they will go after you.

When I breath heavy and pant like a dog, they both go on the defenseive, claws out, backs huntched, tails fully poofed out! When they hear dogs barking out side, they do the same thing and growl and run to the windows or doors to check for interuders.
