You know in those 'Twilight' movies how that vampire dude Edward who my dad plays, sparkles in the sun light? Well, I sparkle in the sunlight too.

It's true,The coat of a Bengal cat tends to be patterned in exotic spots or marbles and sometimes includes “glitter” that sparkles in sunlight.

Glitter or glittered:

A trait unique to the bengal breed that causes the hair to sparkle like a prism. In brown bengals the glitter is a gold color and in snow or charcoal bengals the glitter appears crystalline or silver. It is most easily seen in bright natural sunlight. Some glitter comes from the hair shaft being hollow at the ends and some comes from actual flakes of the mineral "mica" being encased in the hair shaft. The picture below shows a cat like me, who is glittered. This is an actual picture of his glitter and the photo is not touched up in any way.

They use use special effects on Dad, so the vampire dude Edward can sparkle, but I don't need special effects isn't that cool?

I guess it's safe to say that my mom has always been destined to love 'boys that sparkle.'





Keep smiling,
