Meet our New Friend!
I have made a wonderful new friend in the past week, and she is such an amazing women that I thought perhaps she deserved her own post. I also wanted to share the Great Ficas Climbing Adventure, so we will do both. (As I type I can hear another Ficas Adventure about to begin, I have GOT to get these guys a tree of their own!)
I have been working with Marilyn Kreiger, from Thecatcoach.com , she is one of the countries leading cat behaveiour experts, and I have been reading her articles in Cat Fancy, and Cat Channel.com for years without knowing it was her. She is also involved in Bengal Rescue and an expert on early generation cats. She has been helping my with The Little Ghost his past week, giving advice and just listening to me talk about him. She is, by the way, a font of information, I have Stories for you!
Marilyn has her own F1, Asia, and sent me some pictures last night as we talked.
There is something about the early generation cats that is very powerful. Marilyn says once you have one in your life, you can never go back. I realize we have gone a little cat crazy on this blog since I got Little Ghost, and I can't see it stoping anytime soon, (tho there will be some music talk this weekend, that I can promise you! I am feeling the need for some ROCK!!) (She says, slipping into Rock Fod Mode)
Not only is this blog gone Bengal Mad, but Marilyn has just, as in a few days ago, started her own Blog. She only has two posts up, and as she said "I have one comment so far, and that was from my friend!" (I told her it does take time.) She is going to be talking about my Little Ghost, and what we are doing with him, and his progress in making it back to a loving cat, among other Cat Topics. So now there will be TWO sources for Little Ghost progress reports. She has been following things here, so please join me in welcoming her as a Fellow Fiend!
I love having Bengals in my Spooky House. I love everything about them. I love doing rescue work, and I loved saving the Jungle Loves, and look forward to my next fosters. But there is something about this poor scared Leopard that has grabbed my heart like nothing else ever has. In many ways, I think saving him might well be the most important thing I have ever done.
And that is Something.
And I will save him, you know. With the help of Marilyn, and my other new F1 friends (who may well get their own post in due time, there are some amazing people out there, and everyone has been SO good to me!) helping me work thru this. Not to mention a Host of Fiends who are never far away!
Love and Magic,
