7 Fun Facts About Bengal Cats

 Bengals are well known for their beautiful leopard-like coat and outgoing personality. They have been called the Rolls-Royce of cats but their uniqueness is not just limited to their look. Even if you’ve had other kitties in your life, owning a Bengal can be an entirely new feline experience.

#1 Bengals love water

Bengals enjoy water and will play for long periods in a bathtub with a few inches of water in it or in a bathroom sink with the faucet slightly running. Some will even join you in the shower.

#2 Bengals are very vocal

The Bengal cat doesn’t meow quite like other cats and they can’t easily be ignored. They are very vocal and will definitely let you know when they want something such as food or entertainment.

#3 Bengals inherit the glitter gene

The rich color and glittery shine distinguishes the Bengal coat from other cats. Their coat will appear to shine in the sunlight with a glitter that has an iridescent quality!

#4 Bengals are excellent jumpers

Bengals flying abilities mean they can jump up to 3 times their height and can easily gain access to all of the tall furnitures in your house. They’re also excellent climbers.

#5 Bengals have a wild blood line

The Asian Leopard Cat is the foundation wild cat for this breed. In 1963, Jean Sugden Mill successfully bred a female Asian Leopard Cat with a domestic short-haired male to produce the first documented Bengal Cat.

#7 Bengals are little thieves

They may look innocent but if you have a hard time finding your necklace or house keys, it’s probably kitty who went on a hunt to steal all that glitters. Bengals certainly earn a capital “B” for burglary.

I think my bengal (who regularly joins me in the shower) is a “snow” Bengal. He’s not orangey in color and he has blue eyes. I also have a Savannah that someone purchased from a breeder who deemed her too small for breeding. She wound up at the shelter because she was “skittish, unfriendly and hid all the time”. When I approached her cage she meowed at me and jumped up and ran over to me when I opened the door and licked my hand. She is the most affectionate, needy cat I have ever come across.

Great story, you probly have a connection with the skittish girl and she knew it. When an animal is with its real family I feel it knows it and can became a lot more relaxed. My Bengal girl does the same scrarchie thing for me to lift the blankets so she can hop under. Lol

I adopted mine a few years ago and I can honestly say I don’t remember life before my man. Apollo has brought a lot to our family. He may be a pain in the butt and needy at times but I wouldn’t trade home for anything. Thieving is his trademark, especially my at keys before I have to go to work 🙂 he loves the car and I have to take him for a ride atleast twice a week or he gets antsy.

I am Mother to a four year old Bengal, named Nigel, he is. very active, loves his food and all his toys. No problem with the dirt box, a clean boy. He has to sleep with me every night cuddled up under my arm or around my neck! Nigel adopted me one year ago, when he left his home! He has required patience and lots of attention and love, he gets on well with my Greyhound. We are happy.
