What do bengals need?
For a Bengal, there must be a high claw point in the house (a game town), they jump very high, they need this to maintain good physical shape. A Bengal cat can climb to any height. And the cats and cats of our cattery, except for claws, still love to jump onto the cabinets and watch us imposingly from the very top. If there is a bengal in the house, it is imperative to ensure its safety, etc. to. his curiosity and instinct for the hunter can play a trick on him. Mosquito nets should be on the windows, but I have repeatedly removed even adult bengals from such a net, when they climbed over it like a claw-claw, behind some butterfly, and under the weight of an adult cat the net can still fall out, so the windows can We open them only for ventilation. If a bengal lives in a house, it can easily run away for a bird, etc., they are very addicted and can easily get lost. The free range of a bengal on a plot of a private house is unsafe, therefore, if you want to walk your pet, you need to build a spacious aviary with a roof or walk it on a leash. So, if a “little leopard” (bengal) appeared in your house, try to protect it and yourself from unpleasant adventures.
Bengals belong to the group of short-haired cats, they have no undercoat, and therefore they practically do not fade. There is no need to comb them out or bathe them often. In addition, they are by nature very neat and tidy. Kittens themselves find a toilet tray, they are very smart and understand what needs to be done. The exception is cats and cats of the cattery, which are actively tagging everyone and everything, the genes of wild ancestors make themselves felt. They carefully, even fanatically, monitor their fur and love to wash themselves and others for the company.
They are finicky in food, each has their own tastes and preferences, but the quality of food for a Bengal is of great importance. Only premium food and meat (beef, veal, poultry) must be present in the diet. You can not feed fatty and dairy products (you can only low-fat cottage cheese). Bengals have a sensitive stomach, and the health of the cat depends on proper nutrition, as well as the quality of the hair, which in Bengals has a silky structure.
Bengal conquers us not only with its appearance, but also with its character: sociable, affectionate, playful, but at the same time independent. It’s impossible not to love such a cat. And thanks to Jane Mill for the fact that we can communicate with this affectionate and gentle beast!
