Unusual cat of the world: a cat of Bengal breed
Bengal breed of cats appeared relativelyrecently from the inter-species crossing of an ordinary domestic shorthair cat and a wild Asian leopard cat. Serious experiments on breeding a cat of Bengal breed began in the 60s of the last century and passed quite successfully, because, as a rule, cubs from such crossings are infertile and can not leave after themselves offspring. Generation after generation, scientists have perfected qualitative signs of a Bengal cat and, finally, have reached certain standards. So there was a cat of Bengal breed, a small domestic leopard.
What does a Bengal cat look like?
A cat of Bengali breed is differentan unusual color, in which it is impossible not to fall in love! Usually the pattern on the skin is marble or spotted, and the color of the fur itself is from golden to rusty, orange and even ivory. The spots also vary in size and color, but, as a rule, they are already darker than the main color - black, chocolate brown, cocoa or charcoal. It often happens that multicolored marks on the skin merge with each other and form "rosettes" - dark on the fringing, but light in the middle. And with a marble color, one or more colors go smoothly into the main shade of the cat's fur coat. Typically, the animal has a very shiny coat of medium length. The Bengal cat has a long, muscular, graceful body (the genes of wild ancestors, which in their blood can be up to 25%), as well as the thin tail thinning to the end. On average, the adult male weighs up to 7 kg, while the female weighs up to 4 kg, the life expectancy with proper care can range from 15 to 17 years. Since their birth, they are very mobile and are always happy to show the owner his agility and activity.
The nature of a pet
