Destiny Bengals is known for connecting pet lovers with Bengal kittens, one of the most exotic breeds of cat in the world! Did you know that a Bengal is a cross between a domestic cat and an Asian leopard cat? Cool. Bengals look like wild jungle cats, but they’ve been bred to be gentle, domesticated pets.
Bengal cats are perhaps most known for their distinctive look: a richly colored, highly contrasted coat of vivid spots. The Bengal is like a Leopard, Jaguar or Ocelot, in looks, thanks to their rosette markings. Bengal cats have two basic pattern flows: rosetted and marbled. This unique look stands them out from other cats who are simply all one color.
Compared to other breeds, Bengals are a bit different. They seem to maintain a kitten-like energy even when they’re old. Their coat is pelt-like and plush. They also might like water. You might find a Bengal watching you brush your teeth or trying to hop in water with you. Their ancestors liked to hunt in water, so that’s where that urge comes from.
Did you know most Bengals have green, blue, yellow or gold-colored eyes? Some Bengals have a sparkle at the tips of their hairs when light hits them right– almost looking like glitter. Bengals have been called the “Rolls Royce” of cats because of their uniqueness and beauty.
Generally muscular and athletic, Bengals combine both strength and elegance. They’re playful and have been known to jump over four feet from the ground.
As a breed, Bengals are extremely efficient self-groomers. They shed very little.
When fully grown, males average 10 to 15 pounds, while females are 8 to 12 pounds.
Breeders typically allow kittens to go to their new homes when they’re between three and four months old.
