Bengal Cats

The Bengal cat has a wild appearance but is actually a domestic cat breed. Bengals look like small leopards with distinct spotted or marbled coat markings in various colors. They were first created by breeding Asian Leopard Cats with domestic cats to produce hybrid offspring. After many generations of strategic breeding, the Bengal developed into a friendly family pet with an exotic look.
