Interesting Factoids about Bengal Cats

Bengal cats are some of the more distinct cats on the face of the earth. They were created by breeding domestic cats with Asian leopard cats, and while this process garnered a great deal of headlines at the time, it didn’t take long for people to fall in love with them. Bengals cats are known for exhibiting some of the traits that you might find in a wild cat, but they also have the temperament of the average domestic cat, which makes them unlike any other type of cat you have ever seen. Check out some more facts about Bengal cats below:

They like water a lot more than other cats.

It’s rare to find a cat that likes water. Most cats are scared of water and don’t want to have anything to do with it. However, Bengal cats actually love the water and have been known to try and follow their owners into the bathroom when they take a shower. Bengals cats don’t feel threatened at all by water and will gravitate towards it if you let them.

They love to be entertained.

Most cats like to play to a degree, but there are plenty of breeds that will spend their entire days napping and taking it easy. Not Bengal cats! They need something to keep them occupied at almost all times, which is why Bengal owners love to spoil their cats with toys and other knicknacks . If you bring a Bengal cat into your home, you should be prepared to play with it and keep it active.

They can jump high and climb up just about anything.

Due to their wild nature, Bengal cats are capable of jumping incredible high. There are some that can jump three times as high as their own height. They can also climb up many different kinds of surfaces, so don’t be surprised if they figure out a way to get to that toy you tried to hide from them on a high shelf. They are amazing creatures who are strong-willed and physically capable of reaching heights that might seem impossible to you.

Bengal cats are a special breed, and they can bring years of joy and laughter to you and your family. If you have considered bringing a Bengal cat into your home, Destiny Bengals can provide you with more information on them.

Things Cats can Teach Us About Life

Bengal CatsWe love our cats and how much of an important part of our lives they become, but do you ever think about what our cats teach us about our everyday lives? No, we’re not talking about the importance of sleeping for 18 hours (though, that does sound nice) but how cats can help us in other ways to be more positive or compassionate in our interactions with those around us. Let’s explore a few of the ways that our cats make us better people.

Appreciate Kindness

Your cat has probably purred from being pet or fed, or returned the favor from time to time by nuzzling up with you when you’re cold or sick or bringing you a dead mouse. While the latter may not have been your favorite way for your cat to say thanks, it is one of the many ways that cats teach us to be thankful for the kindness we’re shown each day.

Know Your Surroundings

Cats have a tendency to always be on the lookout for anything around them, whether it’s a potential prey bird or rodent or just you sneaking around the corner trying to surprise them. In this way, cats teach us to always be mindful of everything around us because when we’re not we may be unpleasantly surprised!

Ignore Annoyances

How many times have you placed stuff on your cat or kept brushing your finger on his or her ear or whisker to get a response. And how many of those times has your cat just ignored you or walked off? There’s a lesson in that: If something is bothering or annoying you, don’t let it. Just ignore it or walk away.

Fish is Delish

Your cat probably loves seafood-flavored treats and food – especially if you’re making a tuna sandwich. Cat’s love fish, and we should too. Fish is full of healthy omega fatty acids and fish oils that have been shown to be good for our bodies. Maybe your cat doesn’t get all the fish he or she wants, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t!

Stretch

When your cat wakes up – or even sometimes while they’re asleep – do they sprawl out as far as possible, seeming to extend every possible muscle as far as they can go? The reason they do this is because it feels good to keep your muscles loose and limber, as you can probably relate when you stretch yourself. Keeping flexible and stretching before and after a workout feels good, relives tension and can help from causing sprains or other pains. Take a page from your cat’s book and stretch regularly.
