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.

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.

#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.

  1. 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. I don’t dare look at her because if I do she races over w/that “you called me, right?!” She sticks to me like glue and insists on sleeping under the covers with me.if I pretend I’m asleep she’ll keep pawing at me until I lift the covers for her. “Unfriendly, skittish, hides all the time” Yeah, right.

    • 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

  2. All true! I love my Bengal more than anything in this world.

  3. Number 7 happened to me more than once and this is why I never leave anything out.
