The Brown Bengal

The brown Bengal is by far the most popular and commonly bred of the recognised colours. This may be due to the brown gene being dominant to the other colour genes, or it may be due to the fact that the colours of the brown Bengal most closely resemble the colours of the Asian Leopard cat.

Generally the colour brown is either golden or cool coloured but within these colours, there are many variations and shades. All of these variations are accepted by TICA and there is no preference given to any one ground colour.

The brown Bengal has two or three (tri-colour) shades of colour with a lighter background and brown to jet black markings.
