Maugy – in memory

Maugy an F1 BengalIn Memory of Maugy

The hardest part of ensuring we give each cat a safe home is remembering it isn’t forever. Every day the cats at the sanctuary touch our hearts in some way. It is a wonderful gift when each rescue like Maugy shows her brilliant personality to the world. Maugy, a boisterous F1 Bengal lady, passed recently from kidney disease and complications from cancer. She had a voice and personality you couldn’t ignore and will be greatly missed.


TWS was contacted by a Bengal rescue group in Colorado. A larger breeder was closing down and they needed to place the cats that were not adoptable. They had several hybrid Bengals that were unable to be socialized for adoption.

With the launch of our new hybrid rescue program, we were able to take in nine of their high generation Bengals. All of them were spayed and neutered and now live together in our new hybrid house. The indoor area gives them the comforts of a home environment while their doggy door access gives them an enclosure outdoors where they can climb trees and perches.

Wiggy and Maugy, female F1 Bengals, also came from the Colorado group. One of their parents was an Asian Leopard Cat and the other was a Bengal Domestic Cat. At least a few of the other Bengals are direct offspring of Wiggy and Maugy.
