5 Interesting facts about Bengal Cats


5. Wild Ancestry

The Bengal cat dates only from the early 1960s, when a breeder crossed a domestic feline with an Asian leopard cat. The breed is named for this wild Asian cat, whose scientific name is Prionailurus bengalensis.

4. Glitter Gene

In addition to the beautiful marbling or spotted rosette features of the Bengals' coat, some cats inherit the so-called "glitter gene," which gives their coats an iridescent quality.

3. Just Like A Dog

Bengals have several attributes found more often in canines than felines. He likes to play fetch, and if you want to take your indoor Bengal outside try walking him on a leash. Reports of barking or rolling in nasty stuff are highly exaggerated.

2.  Cat Burglar

If you come home and some of your jewelry is missing, it might have been an inside job. Stash anything glittery away from your Bengal (maybe another version of the glitter gene?) as he loves to play with and hide such objects.

1. Tricks

Your Bengal enjoys learning tricks. Keep this smart cat entertained and out of mischief by teaching him tricks, like jumping or retrieving. You also should provide him with plenty of cat toys, but not ordinary ones like stuffed mice. Give him something he must figure out, like kitty puzzles.
