Secret life of Boomer the Bengal

[ads1] [dropcap]H[/dropcap]ave you ever wondered what your cat is up to when you’re not at home? I know I would love to take a peek at what my pets are up to when I am away! In a previous article, we already mentioned the Petcube camera which allows you to interact with your kitty and lets you see what your pet is doing all day from your phone. Considering how active and energetic Bengals are, even with their owners present, one can only imagine what mischief they are capable of when there’s no one looking over their shoulder.

However, luckily for us, we don’t have to wonder anymore! Robert Dolwett filmed his Bengal’s behavior as if he was alone at home. And the video doesn’t disappoint. As soon as Robert closes the door behind him, Boomer is on the go. After double checking that his human is really gone for the day by peeking out the window, Boomer starts living large. Of course, since he probably doesn’t get much say when it comes to choosing a TV program, the first thing this adorable Bengal does is turn on the TV and find a show about hunting habits of the big cats. Moved by the tiger’s prowess, Boomer decides it’s time for him to prove his skills as a hunter…. By mercilessly attacking innocent fluffy toys. (Let’s face it, that cheeky zebra had it coming.) When Boomer made sure that no plushie was left standing, it was time to have some real fun. And nothing says fun more than a ball pit. The way Boomer was jumping and bouncing around was absolutely adorable!

With a set of soft, but sturdy plastic balls and a tub, you can create a never-ending source of fun for your Bengal. (And if you decide to make one for yourself, nobody will judge you.) Having in mind how playful and energetic Bengals are, interesting, challenging toys like this are a must have. When they don’t have a way to spend their energy in a productive way, Bengals can display problematic behavioral patterns. This active cat breed needs attention and affection from their owners, as they are the complete opposite of the lazy cat stereotype.

Towards the end of the video, Boomer managed to fall asleep amongst the colorful balls, with only his cute little nose peeking out. When his owner called out to him and he stuck out his sleepy head out, it melted my heart!

Even though you can see that, in some parts of the video, it’s actually all a part of Boomer’s training, it’s nevertheless one of the most adorable things I’ve ever seen. I was grinning from ear to ear the whole time I was watching the video. It’s indisputable that Boomer is one special little Bengal!


  1. I have a female cat that is half bengal and I don’t know what the father was because she looks like a long haired mostly white Siamese she has blue eyes and has the markings of a Siamese but it’s very light markings mostly white and long hair and very long tail that looks like a plume when she is walking around. Her personality is very good with me follows me around knows what she wants when she wants it but is skittish and a little quirky does not care for other people touching her. What do you think the father was was it Siamese or was it a Himalayan I have looked up pictures of Bengal cats that were bred with other breeds Siamese and Himalayan I found a picture of my cat in there among the pictures
