A show "Kittens" by Viktorija Damerell and Ona Juciūtė, in Kintai Arts Residency, 2019
Bengal cats were bred to combine both – the behaviour of a domestic kitten and the appearance of a wild tiger. They are supposed to have 1/10 of wild beast blood and still be fine living indoors.
However, sometimes their savage origin can take over and these fluffy kittens become cheetahs. This is exactly what happened to Donatas from Vilnius, who claims that he was cheated, having purchased an unsuccessful genetic experiment rather than a kitten. During the last six months, he maintains that he has been petting a beast that he is actually afraid to touch. “He eats chicken thighs, small birds, rats. I give him food like this while he is growling and tearing”, – Donatas told.
