Water treatments for a bengal cat

Bengalis do not belong to the breed, confirming the saying “afraid as a cat of water.” If desired, the animals themselves play with water in the bathroom, do not refuse to bathe. Owners should consider:

– too warm, and even more so hot water, is contraindicated for cats;

– cleaning agents of the owners are not suitable for animals – you need to buy special cat shampoos to avoid allergies, where the developers balanced the concentration of alkalis;

– you need to teach a bath with a little warm water from a young age, offer it no more than once a month, preferably after clipping.

It’s nice to train a Bengal kitten to blow dry. If the animal comes dirty from a walk – use the so-called dry shampoos without abusing water procedures. Coarse grooming powder is a modern version that continues the tradition of UK breeders who, in past centuries, brought shorthair coats into perfect order using bran. Continue reading

Features of allergenicity of representatives of the Bengal breed

Despite the established fact that the animal’s hair itself is not perceived with hostility by an allergic person, it is she who transfers the Fel D1 protein. The hairs of cats of Bengal breed are short, but density is more important, that is, the amount of hair, and in Bengals it is thick. The advantage is given to those individuals who do not have an undercoat, as it does not exist in a wild mini-leopard. True, as a result of crossbreeding, most of the descendants of Asian forest cats acquired a dense undercoat – a huge amount of allergen particles is concentrated in it.

The second advantage of Bengal cats is very moult. This significantly reduces the likelihood of developing severe allergies, because in the environment there are not too many proteins that cause trouble.

It is believed that animals with light-colored coat synthesize allergen less, but statistics on this subject do not exist. But the fact that the characteristics of a particular cat influence a high or weak severity of a negative reaction is a proven fact. Continue reading
