Kodiak was just too good to pass up :) In his very early days, he had amazing color and contrast and a very sweet disposition. He also got his sire's shorter ears (for a Bengal). As I write this at 6.5 months of age, I can't beleive that he's still a kitten!! He is one dense/solidly built kitten that I've seen. You have to pick him up to understand :) His head shape is also phenominal!
He still has a way to go before he'll be able to breed (usually around 9 months old) but we already are expecting some amazing kittens from this boy! I mostly excited about all the unique colors he can produce :)

Kodiak Bear was born 2-29-20. Right at the beginning of the Covid-19 Pandemic in the US. So, while a few cat shows went ahead elsewhere in the US, the NW cancelled all of its shows until its safe to go to our "new normal". No one can say yet when this will happen.
