And now for the next breed in our series: (Do you like this series so far?)
The International Cat Association defines the Bengal as at least a fourth-generation descendant of a crossing between the wild Asian leopard cat and a domestic cat. The ideal Bengal is domestic in personality, but displays the wild cat's pattern of rosetted spotting and the pelted look. The traditional Bengal color is brown tabby--black, brown or rust color in clear contrast to a tan or orange background.
The International Cat Association recognizes brown tabby, seal lynx point, seal sepia tabby and seal mink tabby colors, and spotted (single-colored spots or two-toned rosettes in a random pattern) and marble (random tabby markings minus the distinctive bull's eye) patterns.
These cats are curious, entertaining and have a special love of water.
They are confident, alert, curious, intelligent and friendly. Bengals are known to be big talkers, communicating with their large, expressive eyes what they can't convey through meows and chirps.
Their confirmation is sleek and muscular with a wedge head that is longer than wide; a broad nose and large oval eyes.
Next month we will discuss the Bombay!
Enjoy and take care my friends!
