Bengal Breed Info
The Bengal cat is a relatively new breed of cat that was originally created by crossing an Asian Leopard Cat with a domestic cat in the USA. The Bengal cat derives its name from the Latin name of its wild ancestor, Felis Bengalensis (Asian Leopard Cat). The goal in developing the domestic Bengal cat breed was to preserve a strong physical resemblance to its beautiful wild ancestor and, at the same time, the new domestic breed was designed to be a pleasant and trustworthy family companion. Bengal cats are now ranked as the fifth most popular breed in the UK
Bengal cats have an affectionate disposition. They have an extremely energetic, playful nature. Bengal cats are intelligent and seem to look at everything around them as, ‘can this be played with?’ They are agile, love to climb and can be vocal with a distinctive voice which has been described as a cooing or chirping, or as a strange gravelly sound. A Bengal also won’t sit idly by after you come home from a long day at work. You can expect a royal greeting, complete with a serenade. During awake times, Bengals prefer playing, chasing, climbing and investigating. The Bengal loves to hunt and may bring you toys.
