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

Caring for a Bengal cat

The desire to have your own mini-leopard at home should be supported by knowledge about the characteristics of the physical data and the nature of such a pet in order to organize proper care and the high quality of his life. First of all, you need to understand that the Bengal feline is the result of the crossbreeding of several breeds of ordinary domestic cats and a wild Asian leopard cat. As a result, we got an elite view from the subfamily of domestic cats, combining the qualities of a wild beast (external exterior, some habits) and a homely affectionate and livable pet. Since at present usually Bengal cats and cats are representatives that are already quite distant from a wild forest descendant for a dozen generations, the positive characteristics of the domesticated animal’s character prevail. The results of the careful work of breeders guarantee that it is not difficult to keep bengals in ordinary home conditions without causing inconvenience to the owner or the animal itself.

Knit or sterilize?

Not all purebred Bengal cats and cats are suitable for further breeding. And we are not even talking about obvious defects in the exterior or problematic nature. In order not to spoil the breed, breeders allow only animals that perfectly meet the standard and have a promising appearance to breed. Uncontrolled reproduction over several generations can disrupt the intent of the creators of the species, degrade the type. For this reason, most often one of the conditions for the purchase of Bengal babies is their mandatory sterilization on time, so not all can breed Bengal cats. Sterilization is useful for the animal, not suitable for pedigree work, and for the owner, and in general for the breed. Unsterilized animals should mate regularly. Otherwise, troubles and aggressive behavior caused by instincts cannot be corrected – it is necessary to eliminate the cause itself.

It is irresponsible that the cat should be allowed to give birth to a little “for health”, and that the cat, after castration, turns into an amorphous creature. The behavior of the animal after sterilization and castration changes in a positive direction. Continue reading

All about feeding Bengal cats: right and balanced

If, in general, caring for Bengal cats is not difficult, does not cause much trouble, then feeding is not easy. The point here is in the sensitive, gentle gastrointestinal tract – such is the genetics of the breed. Bengal cats from wild ancestors inherited a shortened intestine, along with it – a digestive system that is sensitive to changes. It is so easy to disorder that a concept such as “Bengal diarrhea” has appeared. There is no talk of cheap feed from supermarkets at all. Having purchased not one ode a thousand elite animals, it is unreasonable to save on its nutrition (and, therefore, on health). The digestion of bengals does not tolerate not only poor-quality food, but also a change in diet or type of feed. Therefore, the basic feeding strategy must be developed in advance. Continue reading

What is desirable to add to the menu

Even if the cat doesn’t eat straight, it’s useful to give the Bengal cat raw chicken white cartilage from chicken breasts, separating them from the bones. Entirely pre-frozen daily chickens can be offered. It is highly advisable to introduce cooked chicken necks as an additive. The recipe is simple:

– free from skin;

– scroll with a meat grinder (grind to a pasty state);

– Freeze minced paste obtained portionwise.

Such an additive is useful to everyone, but is especially necessary for growing Bengalis, that is, young animals up to two years old.

What is excluded from the menu. Continue reading
