    Hi Everyone, I thought I would share these photos with you, I can't believe they are a week old already. The little black one has nearly one eye open, they have almost doubled there birth weight. As Twinkle is a first time mum she is doing realy well, the only concern I have is last night she started to bite them :eek:hmy:, she didn't hurt them but I was wondering if this is normal? It could have been the heat as they were all wrigling for food mayby she just got a bit cheesed off!!!

    They are so cute...

    I am no expert but i believe the mum will do this to teach them some manners, and it was very hot so she might have been a bit tetchy too.;)

    I am not sure mum is part Bengal, so mayby it has come from that.

    I doubt that mum is part bengal, tabby is just a pattern & bengals are spotted not tabby strpies :)

    most moggies are tabby or B&w or tortie

    They are very cute, My first queen Fizz would occasionally nip her kittens, she never hurt them, I would just keep your eye on her. Iam assuming she is somewhere nice and quiet, and she is in good health?

    When I bought her I was told that her mum was part Bengal, so I just thought Twink would be 1/4 at least as she has the most wonderful spotty tummy. One of the kittens has a lovely spotty tummy as well.

    Jen26...She is in realy good health mayby not in a quiet place but she seems happy with that, being near me. She is still doing it a little but as somebody said earlier I think she is teaching them some manners lol !!

    One of my boys has almost identical markings as the striped one. His Dad was pedigree Bengal. His brother is a black and silver marbelled colour, which has transferred through to Lulu's kittens. Her mother was pedigree Bengal as well, so the colouring of the kitties is really intersting.
    The one of the kitties has brown Bengal spots on their tummy; 3 of the 5 have the light brown bengal colouring that has come through from the grandparents. All the kitties are marbled with a mixture of black, silver and brown colours, with 2 having white tummies.
