I had to work my way through 150 meters of rope.
But after several hours I finally succeeded :)
Here you can see Nim's try-out.

Good Job

Today I'm doing some DIY.
The kenderman made this running board for Nim because she likes heights.
But the smoothness of the board and a furious Bengal ......... quite a hazardous combination :)
So I'm adjusting it into a multifunctional object: running board / scratching post.

Nim still has some fuzzy hairs.

The "fuzzy uglies" period starts when the Bengal kitten is three weeks old.
The coat will become "dull" looking. This happens in the wild because the kitten
begins to explore and this helps camouflage it from predators.
The fuzzies will usually start to clear up about 12 to 16 weeks of age.
When the kitten sheds the last of these little white fuzzy hairs you can finally see it's true beauty.

Energizing Walk

Last week I could sense my energy level dropping rapidly.
Today we went for a long walk through the fog and I'm feeling a bit better now :)

We were immensely happy with Nim for three whole days and then we started to worry.
The week before she came to us she was sterilized. Suddenly we saw here tummy swell.
On wednesday we went to the vet and he wasn't positive either.
Besides an unlikely infection this could be caused by some broken internal stitches.
The effect: her intestines popping through her abdominal wall.
A serious problem! As a result Nim could die. The vet gave her an injection
and hopefully we would see some improvement is a couple of days.............

Today we'll go to the vet again. We have been worrying a lot.
Because the abscess didn't shrink it looks like she'll need another operation again :(
And she's so small!

We just came come from the vet and he thinks the swelling is decreasing!
Nim is getting better :)
He thinks the abscess is caused by an allergic reaction to the internal stiches.
So the swelling should decrease some more although she might end up with some extra scar tissue.
Her first battle scar ;)
We're over the moon!!!
We'll drink to Nim, her health and her happiness!
(She's purring on my lap right now)
Enjoy your weekend too!!!

Nim I

Finally I'm able to show you some pics of Nim.
She's a 16 weeks old Bengal and beautiful.
Yesterday we picked her up at the cattery and we had a two hour drive back home.
She is doing so much better than we expected!
We're still busy adapting our home to her needs :)

Surprisingly Nim is using the sleeping bag I bought her.
