The Bengal is a large, sleek and very muscular cat with its hind-quarters slightly higher than its shoulders. The different coat patterns are either leopard spotted or marbled, on a background colour of brown, or sometimes white. The Bengal coat is sleek and has a satin feel to it. While most may think the cat’s name is due to its resemblance to a Bengal tiger, it isn’t: the Bengal cat is actually a relatively new hybrid breed of an Asian leopard cat crossed with a domestic cat.
Life expectancy: 12-16 years
Originating country: USA
Temperament: Alert, affectionate, playful
Interesting fact: The voice of the Bengal is different from that of other domestic cats. They can coo and chirp, and like to jump and somersault.
