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

Originally developed from crosses between the domestic cats and the Asian Leopard Cat, the Bengal is the only domestic cat that can have rosettes like the markings on Leopards, Jaguars and Ocelots.


The bengal cat is a very high energy and extremely intelligent feline. They are extremely inquisitive so be prepared to be kept on your toes with this breed.

Bengals require lots of enrichment such as interactive toys that really make them think. It is ideal to have a cat wheel and several tall scratching posts that they can run and play on.

Most often this breed is compared to a dog. They easily will learn how to walk and even run along side their owners on a leash and even play a never ending game of fetch.

Despite being such a high energy breed do enjoy a nice long cuddle session at the end of the day and love to show their effection to their humans with purrs and head butts. Many of our own bengals will vocalize that they want some extra attention
