The Bengal Cat
The Bengal cat is a domesticated cat breed created from hybrids of domestic cats, especially the spotted Egyptian Mau, with the Asian leopard cat . The breed name comes from the leopard cat’s taxonomic name. Bengals have a wild appearance; their golden shimmer comes from their leopard cat ancestry, and their coats may show spots, rosettes, arrowhead markings, or marbling. They are an energetic breed which needs much exercise and play. (Wikipedia)
The Bengal is a domestic cat that has physical features distinctive to the small forest-dwelling wildcats, and with the loving, dependable temperament of a family pet. As such, some characteristics in the appearance of the Bengal are distinct from those found in other domestic cat breeds.These cats are very playful and require a lot of playtime. Since they are also very affectionate and loyal to their human “parents” I recommend indulging in play with your cat to build a stronger bond between you and your cat as well as keep the cat well exercised!
