The Bengal cat is a highly intelligent breed characterized by its wild, leopard like appearance. It is an incredibly active and playful with an affectionate and gentle temperament. Every cat is individual, but most Bengals get along well with other pets, including dogs.
They like to play games, including fetch, and excel at learning tricks. Surprisingly fond of playing in water, the Bengal is not above jumping into the bathtub or strolling into the shower with you.
Created by Jean Mill (California USA) through crosses between the Asian leopard cat, and domestic shorthairs, Bengals are an athletic, agile and graceful cat with a strong muscular body. The Bengal is a large cat weighing between 4 and 8 kilograms when fully grown.
Bengals have soft coats that lie low next to their bodies and shed less than many other breeds of cats. They have spotted, rosette or marbled markings and come in a variety of coat colours, mainly brown however also in the rarer silver.
Pedigree Bengals are generally very healthy cats if you have bought them from a reputable registered breeder. The life expectancy for Bengals is the same as many other cats, generally from 14 to 16 years.
