Bengal Cats

Hoping to produce an animal with the appearance of a spotted wildcat and the sweet disposition of a house cat, in the 1980s an Arizona woman began a breeding program with eight female descendants of crosses between Asian Leopard Cats and domestic cats. She named the new breed Bengal after the scientific name (Felis bengalensis) of the wildcat forebear. Described by the breed founder as the "domestic reproduction of a leopard," the Bengal descends from crosses between a wildcat and a domestic cat
The Bengal is a medium to large cat with a head that is longer than it is wide. It is bred to retain its wild appearance: sleek, long, and muscular, with the hindquarters slightly higher than the shoulders. The black-tipped tail is carried low. The Bengal has short, rounded ears; oval, wide-set eyes; prominent whisker pads; and rounder nostrils than other domestic cats.
Weight: 9-12 lbs.
