More About The Breed

The Bengal cat is a hybrid cat breed. While the term "hybrid" is sometimes used to describe a breed that is created by the crossing of two or more distinct domestic cat breeds, here it has a different meaning. The Bengal is a cross between a wild cat, and a domestic.

Specifically, the Bengal is a cross between an Asian Leopard cat and a domestic cat. The intent is to get a tame, sweet domestic, with the look of a wild cat. Those critical of this type of wild-to-domestic breeding practice often say that it comes with a price, and in certain circles, these cats may have a stigma attached to them.

In some areas of the United States, cats with wild cat heritage, no matter how tame, are banned, so check your local laws prior to adopting. As always, before you adopt any cat, do your research, and spend time with the animal so that you know what you're getting into.

Despite the claims by critics of hybrids with behavior problems, digestive issues, chronic diarrhea, and strong prey drive, fans of the breed say that many of these beautiful cats are leash trainable, and love to be with their humans.
