bengal-cats-are-the-most-graceful-breed-50-impressive-pictures

Originally created by crossing Asian leopard cats with domestic cats, the Bengal is a spotted, tall, large cat with a short, shiny fur. Today, for generations detached from her wild ancestors, the Bengal is a domestic cat and temperament, but retains its exotic, wild appearance. The Bengal is the most popular breed of domestic cats, is the only half-breed domestic cat / wild cat accepted unanimously.


1.


While the first Bengali was created in California in 1963 following an accidental mating between an Asian leopard cat female and a short-haired domestic cat, the breed, as we know it today, made its debut only in 1980, when cat breeders initiated a directed and selective breeding program.


2.


The initiator, Jean Mill, wanted to create a cat that looks like an Asian leopard cat, but has the temperament of a domestic cat. The Asian leopard cat, Felis bengalensis, a motley small feline native to South Asia, was used for this breed. Leopard cats cared for by a geneticist at Davis University in California have been paired with American domestic cats, Ocicat, Egyptian Mau, Abyssinian and Burmese to create the unique look of Bengal.


3.


Today, the breed is recognized by the following international offices and organizations: American Cat Fancier's Association (ACFA), Canadian Cat Association (CCA), The International Cat Association (TICA), United Feline Organization (UFO), Traditional Cat Association, Inc. (TCA).


4.


Despite its popularity, this breed is controversial because some breeders believe that wild blood could lead to behavioral problems. Others disagree with the mating of domestic and wild cats for conservation reasons, given that most wild cats are fewer and fewer. Most likely, the Bengali will never be accepted by the Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA) since the CFA leadership agreed by vote not to accept any breed that has certified wild predecessors.


5.


How is Bengali? In a word - active. Bengalis are full of life, energetic and endowed with a healthy dose of feline curiosity. Graceful, strong and agile, the Bengali loves to climb and will be attracted to the highest places in any room. Almost unnaturally intelligent, Bengalis learn quickly and can be trained to perform a multitude of tricks - as long as you make them think they are worth it, treating them with rewards.


6.


In reality, some of them learn certain tricks you wouldn't even have thought of, such as opening the cupboards, operating the light switches and drawing water to the toilet. They are fascinated by the water, and some of them will even follow their owners in the bathtub for a swim.


7.


The Bengali cat creates strong, emotional bonds with their human friends and becomes affectionate and loyal companions. Due to their deep attachment to humans and their high level of activity, Bengalis need more human interaction than other races. If you are away all day and have an active social life at night, another race would be a better choice.


8.


For those who want a leopard cat in indigo decor, but who are not willing to spend some free time interacting with it, Bengali is not suitable for them. There are cats that want to be included in all the activities of their families, but they also have certain tabs that you will have to respect (sleep hours, loneliness, etc.).


9.


Bengali is easy to care for; a thorough brushing once a week to remove dead hair will keep this tiger in excellent shape.


10.


When you decide to take a Bengali cat, make sure that it is at least four generations away from its predecessors Asian leopard cats to avoid buying a cat with a wild behavior and unpleasant or aggressive habits. Leopard cats are in principle impossible to learn to defecate in the litter, because, for example, in the wild they urinate in running water so that larger predators cannot follow them. Always ask the breeder if the cat you want is the result of exclusively mating Bengal cats for at least four generations and request a copy of the pedigree.
