I'll show other photos of these two from time to time, because, yes, they are both unbelievably gorgeous cats. I feel such a privilege to spoil them rotten.
It's hard for photos to show it, but both of them have amazing glossy coats. That and her huge golden eyes really make Ninja far from ordinary. I've always had a soft spot for black cats myself anyway, all that bad propaganda about witches and bad luck (or good luck depending on the myth).
I just noticed yesterday, when outside with my beautiful bengal that his eyes change in the sun (never got to see him outside before) - they are so light they are almost white! An ice blue I have never seen in a cat before, but which I saw, once, on a bull mastiff! Anyway, it's sensational, particularly with the glimmer (silver/gold glow) his coat gets in the sun. And he's a very ho hum bengal - wouldn't cut it in a show!! They are unbelievable cats.
