A little over 11 years ago, I rescued a little Bengal kitten tossed into the street who did not live up to the expectations of the breeder (no spots). I hand raised from around 2 1/2- 3 weeks old and kept him as I grew very fond and attached to him with his multiple spots that came out slowly. I regret to inform you all of his very quick passing from HCM or a kitty heart attack with no warning of any kind at 3 o'clock in the morning. Since I was a Bengal owner with no guidance of any kind from a breeder (obviously), I was not aware of this genetic problem in these cats. If you have such a cat-get it tested. Even so, there is no guarantee that this will do much in prevention.
But I still post it everywhere in case someone else needs to know-even on the Bicycle Forums.
