The Bengal Cat is a large and muscular short haired breed of cat originating from the USA. The breed is sleek and slender in appearance with its famous spotted or marbled coat. The Bengal was created when an asian leopard cat was bred with a domestic cat breed. We believe this is one of the most attractive cats in the world and although a relatively new breed they require little introduction.
Bengal Cat Appearance
This is a stunning breed of cat that resembles the wild cats of asia and africa while maintaining their domestic characteristics. They have a short haired course coat that is patterned with leopard like spots. They have a triangular shaped head with large wide set pointy ears. Bengals are large in size with strong set bones and large muscles. They have a thick long short haired tale with a black tip.
The Bengal Cat should be either a rich golden red or white in colour with either black spots or black marbling.
This is one of the most intelligent domestic cat breeds. They are alert and affectionate and enjoy human companionship. If allowed outside which is rare due to their value they can become formidable hunters and will often bring home presents for you in the house. This breed although completely domesticated maintains its natural instincts and requires excessive physical and mental stimulation if kept as a house cat. Despite their close association with a natural predator this is a playful, affectionate loving cat that enjoys human attention and companionship. This is a new breed and it is important if adopting a kitten to have at least four generations in the line. This ensures they are gentle in nature and have lost their wild characteristics.
