The Bengal Cats
The Bengal breed is one of the most exotic breeds of cat on earth. They originated from the Asian Leopard Cat, which passed along their wild and distinct markings to the current Bengals.
Bengals are best known for their beautiful rosette patterns and striking mascara marking around their eyes. They have mesmerizing eye colors like icy sky blue, deep ocean blue, aqua, mint green, forest green, yellow green, deep golden yellow and brown.
Bengal Sizes: This is considered a large cat breed, once full grown they weight 8-15lbs+. The females tend to be a smaller weight range (7-10 lbs) and the males tend to be at a top range of it (10-15+).
Personality/Characteristics: The Bengal is an extremely social,playful and athletic breed. They make all kinds of vocalizations and try to communicate with their human companions. Unlike most cats, Bengals are often intrigued by water and will willingly swim and play in the shower or bath. They are extremely intelligent and require lots of play and attention.
They do much better in pairs or with other pets (yes even dogs) because they will quickly become depressed if alone. Many bengals can play fetch (with toy mice), take walks on a harness/leash and enjoy cuddling with people, other animals and each other. One of the best things about the breed is seeing how they verbally interact, play intense games of tag together and groom one another. They are very caring and loyal animals.
