Club News


Bengalmanor and Chalk Mountain would like to announce the arrival of their new endeavor together! A new male, Kleopatra From Russia With Love. Rush came to us from breeder Nataliya Novikova all the way from MOSCOW! Rush is out of Sherakan Vita and sired by Bengalvision Baron.

Deborah Keith and Dana Zauf would like to thank Nataliya for sending us this precious little guy, and extend our appreciation to Svetlana Borisovna Ponomareva for his safe delivery to DFW airport. Nataliya assured us and kept us sane while waiting on our boy to be shipped, answering a lot of silly questions as we had never imported a cat before. Our courier, Svetlana Borisovna Ponomareva, could not have been more gracious. Thank you both for helping us. Rush will be a huge boost to our breeding programs.

After 2 long flights and a 2 hour drive home, he stepped out of the crate ready to play. He has oodles of personality! We are so grateful to have him, and on top of getting a really nice new baby, we also have 2 new friends!!!
