The Bengal cat is a domestic cat with the looks of its wild ancestor; the Asian Leopard cat and the temperament of its domestic ancestor.

The Bengal is a medium to large cat with a very muscular, solid build and a thick, low-set, medium-length tail that adds balance to this athletic cat.

The Bengal cat is renowned for its richly colored, highly contrasted coat of vivid spots or distinctive marbling.

It is the only domestic cat that has rosetted spots like the markings on Leopards, Jaguars and Ocelots. And this distinctive and unique appearance is further enhanced by its slightly small head with a wide nose, almost concave profile, prominent whisker pads, large oval to round eyes and relatively short ears.

It is said that the Bengal cat can be recognised by touch alone due its short, dense coat that has a uniquely soft and silky feel. The Bengal cat is also the only breed of cat known to have a 'glittered' coat.

The Bengal is an alert, friendly, curious, confident cat with strength, agility, balance and grace. Bengals are busy by nature and love playing, chasing, climbing and investigating. They love to be up high and many enjoy water and may often jump into a bath, toilet, sink or washing machine! They also mae great thieves!

Bengals are loved by those who appreciate their inquisitive, playful and loving nature. Moreover, their beauty and charm has quickly made the Bengal one of the most popular breeds today.

I only breed Bengal to Bengal and my cats and kittens do not require any specialised care. I breed for highly sociable and highly affectionate Bengals. Because of the huge amount of time I invest in my cats and kittens, they easily adapt to new environments, new families and other animals.
