Paulie was born to two champion bengals, along with 3 brothers and 2 sisters in his litter. I visited him when he was only 3 weeks old, and the two of us fell in love at first sight. The breeder tried to sell me Paulie's brothers and sisters because he wanted to keep Paulie for himself, but after watching the two of us meant to be together, he gave in and had to let us be. He let me take Paulie home when he was just 7 weeks old because he was the strongest of his litter. So now Paulie runs around his box village (our entire dining room filled with boxes and nothing else), gets to eat his favorite foods because he asks politely, and naps wherever he fits instead of living the miserable life of a show cat, traveling show to show and groomer to groomer in a cage and having to obey their rules.
