History of the Bengal Cat

The Bengal Cat breed is a cross between the Asian Leopard Cat and the domestic house cat. The wild Asian Leopard Cat is a small cat which weighs between eight to sixteen pounds.

Asian Leopard Cats dwell in China, India and various parts of Asia. The Leopard Cat is solitary and prefers hunting at night. There are several species however they cannot be crossbred.

Bengal Cat

In the beginning the Asian Leopard Cat was crossed with a domestic house cat and the first offspring is known as an F1 (Filial). F1 males are sterile. The F1 female may be bred with a domestic cat and the offspring is known as an F2 Bengal Foundation. The males are sterile. The F2 female may be bred with a domestic cat and the offspring is known as the F3 foundation generation. The first three generations are foundation cats.

The Bengal Cats are registered with TICA as foundation cats and cannot be entered into shows.

The fourth generation of Bengal Cats are classified as domestic Bengal Cats and these cats may be entered into shows.

The F4 Bengal is touted as a wonderful pet and with careful breeding their markings are exquisite and their look is quite exotic.
