           about bengal cats

So what is a Bengal?

The Bengal Cat is a hybrid, created by crossing Asian Leopard Cats with domestic cats. The breed was created and developed by Jean Mill who envisaged developing a domestic cat which looked like a little leopard. Bengals were recognized as a breed in America in 1986. In the early stage of developing the breed Jean produced a marble which created a sensation in the cat world and the marble pattern was added to the breed standard.                                                                                     Subsequently, new colours were also accepted into the standard by selectively introducing various purebred breeds. Siamese, Burmese and Tonkinese produced the blue eyed lynx snow, gold eyed Sepia snow and aqua eyed Mink Snow.

Charcoals are Silver Bengals with a dark face mask and cape over shoulders and back (the Zorro affect)  Melanistic Bengals appear all black but like the Black Panther, faint patterns are just visible. The Browns come in a range of shades from cool to warm colors. Some Bengals display the much admired glitter effect on their coats. In the sun the whole coat lights up with sparkling copper, gold, and silver metallic lights. The Bengal standard requires that they have small head, small rounded ears, large eyes,puffy whisker pads a long muscular body. Despite their wild looks and jungle prints, Bengals make intelligent, affectionate, confident and energetic companions. They are very curious and keen to participate in whatever their owners are doing. Bengals get along famously with dogs. The Asian Leopard Cat is an accomplished swimmer and fish catcher.  Bengals ancestoral instinct make them drawn to water. Some merely enjoy kicking water out of drinking bowls while others will join owners in the bath or shower. Some even swim in the ocean
