Original playout date: 10 September 2007
A collection of fine thoroughbred Bengals. We decided in the end for Pushkin, the marbled brown four month kitten you see in the frame at 10:40, and reserved him, but I am still hoping for comments and advice from bengal cat cognoscenti. Two weeks later Pushkin came to our home and 10 and a half years later he is still here enjoying himself. I have added a category under family members for Pushkin and this is the first one as it’s the first time he ever appeared on a film, as this is where we meet him for the first time, the guy who sleeps on our bed every night.
In a sense this was the beginning of a new era, having a cat in the family and also at the same time starting on Japanese, hence the addition of Japanese to the video title.
Quote of the clip: “Well I’m gonna call him Pushkin”
