The Bengal is a relatively new breed of cats. A Bengal cat loves to attract attention and is very playful. It is a purebred cat that can also live with other pets perfectly. Even dogs are no problem, especially if they are active critters. Yet this cat is also perfectly capable of entertaining itself. A Bengal is friendly and curious and likes to give cups. But it is certainly not a lap cat.
The medium-sized Bengal resembles a wild cat or a tiger. She was bred to look wild. However, she is just a tame domestic cat by behavior. The head of this purebred cat appears a bit smaller in relation to the rest of the body. She also has small, slightly forward-facing ears. The smooth, thick coat is silky soft and comes in a variety of colors and patterns. Most are yellow or orange with dark (brown or black) spots or stripes. They also have a medium-long tail with black rings and black pads.
A Bengal’s coat does not need to be groomed. In fact, it is not recommended. These purebred cats are perfectly capable of keeping themselves clean. Bengal cats still like to take a bath. So these are the only cats who like water. They are also intelligent and learn new things quickly. A Bengal also likes to keep an overview of her territory. That is why climbing towers are a good investment. If you give a Bengal enough food and attention, she can live to be 9 to 13 years old.
