I have a full Bengal and a part Bengal. Dexter the full Bengal is active and has more of a dog like personality, he likes to hang with my husband and run around the house with him and play hide and seek. He is not a love bug or a lap cat. He does not like it when I love on him, I capture him and hug and kiss him he growls, hisses, and lets out snorting huffs. He has never bitten me he just sounds nasty. At night as I am sleeping he will lay beside me and paw at my face until I wake up, one night when I was ignoring his pawing he planted a big wet kiss on my nose, that was the only kiss I have gotten from him. I teased him all the next day calling him Romeo in the night. He's just being a typical male doesn't want anyone to know that he can be sensitive and loving. Our part Bengal Tulula has a lesser energy level so she is not a good match for him. She enjoys sleeping and Dex is more interested in playing. They tolerate each other and Dexter looks over her. They bath each other and bird watch together. My advice to those that want multiple cats make sure their energy levels are compatable. I love them both. We have a sign hanging in our house "IT'S THE CATS HOUSE WE JUST PAY THE MORTGAGE"
