Pip

Alf is getting a baby brother! This is Pip (short for Philip); whose resemblance to a leopard is no coincidence. Bengals are a hybrid breed, formed by the cross of a domestic feline and an Asian Leopard Cat - with the colouration of the latter and temperament of the former.

 

Pip was the most placid of his litter and – with our ragdoll being about two gene sequences away from a marshmallow – probably a better fit for our home. He officially comes home with us on the 28th of July!
