Martha Stewart finally got to meet a Bengal cat in person on her TV show (the Martha Stewart Show) which airs tomorrow December 1, 2011 on the Hallmark Channel at 10 a.m. EST.
Not only did she meet the Bengal, but also got to handle a Toyger, Cymric, Sphynx and Munchkin on the special show on “Pets”. The show also featured dogs and birds that people don’t get to see too often.
TICA was represented by Anthony Hutcherson, chairperson of the TICA Bengal Breed committee and President of The International Bengal Cat Society, Inc. The cats handled by Martha were provided by Anthony, Judy Sugden, Kay DeVilbiss, Emily Greene and Sherri and Samantha McConnell.
