Legacy's father, IW SGC Mystre Maybe Im Amazed, was the #1 Bengal in the U.S. and the #2 Bengal in the World for the 2014-2015 Show Season, when I was lucky enough to meet his breeder, Mark Pennington (and his wife, Karen), of Mystre Bengals.
Mark and I chatted at length at that year's Regional Cat Show in Oklahoma City, and because he could see that I was serious about doing my best with these Bengals, he offered to let me place a deposit on 1st choice male baby out of Maybe.... which I eagerly accepted! Very tragically, less than a year later, Mark Pennington suddenly and unexpectedly passed away, shocking the entire Bengal community! I felt horrible at his loss because he was clearly a great person, but was happy to hear later that his wife had continued the Mystre cattery. Another year went by and still no babies out of that incredible Bengal Maybe, so I gave up on that hope, and placed deposits with two other reputable breeders for two other stud babies (PaintedCats Tanner & WildStyle Sterling). Of course, after those deposits were placed, wouldn't you know that Maybe produced his first ever baby, a single boy, and that boy became MINE! Karen and I agreed that this special boy's name should be: Marks Legacy..... and so his full name is: Mystre Marks Legacy of LeopardMagic.
Legacy's grandfather, IW SGC Spice Basil, was the #1 Bengal in the World in 2011.
This is one VERY special Bengal, with Mark Pennington as his breeder, a #1 in US father, and a #1 in World grandfather!
