So what does a Bengal sound like? As a Bengal owner, you may have noticed the melodic but very insistent “Yowl!” when they desperately want something, the loud guttural purring and short barks that are very enjoyable, the lovely frustrated short “Nya!” and the little “Chirrup” when there’s a bird outside or something to hunt. The chirping or chattering sounds are supposed to mimic birds so they can lure them closer and eat them!
The video above gives you an idea of the various noises and sounds Bengal cats can make on a daily basis. The owner, who filmed Pixel & Sushi for a period of 24 months, says:
“If you are after a quiet kitty it’s fair to say that you might be asking for trouble with a Bengal! Pixel & Sushi are quite talkative but there is nearly two years of footage here, condensed into 10 minutes. They aren’t always talking :)”
