Bengal Cat Breed

Bengal cats have the curiosity and self-assurance of a domestic tabby, along with the grace of an Asian Leopard Cat. Find out more about Bengals, including details on their playful nature, as well as details on their health and feeding requirements.


Bengal cats appear slender and balanced due to their athletic build and well-defined muscles. They have black markings around their eyes, high cheekbones, and short, pointed ears that are rounded at the points. They are the only cat breed with a distinct, luxurious coat feel.

Colour Collection

This cat’s remarkable coat pattern and colour are among its most distinguishing characteristics. The majority of Bengal cats have rich, intensely contrasting coats that range from brilliant orange to light brown and have dark patches or a characteristic marbling pattern. The tips of certain animals’ fur even have a “glitter” that sparkles in the light.

Hair fall

A Bengal requires little upkeep. She will not shed much, and she can effectively groom herself.


Although ethical breeders make every effort to keep their cats healthy and free from genetic problems, there are a few conditions you should be aware of.

Bengals may experience flat-chested kitten syndrome and distal neuropathy, both of which usually go away on their own as the kittens become older. Bengals could also get hip dysplasia, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, patellar luxation, and progressive retinal degeneration as they age.

Breed History

The Bengal Cat is a cross between a domestic cat and the Asian Leopard Cat in the wild. Jean Mill carried out the first crossbreed in 1963, but it wasn’t until the middle of the 1980s that the hybrid was developed. Bengals are currently only bred with other Bengals.
