Behavioral Features of Bengal Cats
The distinctive features of the character of Bengal cats and cats are due to their origin. As a result of interspecific crosses, this pet has not only a unique color inherited from the Asian leopard animal, but also has a special character. The positive features of breeders, as well as amateurs with experience in communication include:
– playfulness and sociability;
– the ability, while maintaining its primacy, to get along with other animals, if it is not rodents or birds;
– ease of care, including feeding;
Among the shortcomings are usually mentioned the habit of loudly, and sometimes heart-rending meow. Another problematic aspect is the tendency to vandalism in an apartment where a sufficient number of various game complexes, clawpads, and places for free movement are not equipped.
A Bengal cat is sure to be affectionate if it is taught to communicate from the first weeks of life. In cases where the animal remains alone for a long time, traits of indivisibility may appear. A pet can become fearful, but it will not become aggressive.
Bengal kittens: features of growing up
Modern generations of cats and cats of Bengal, having survived the stage when they were considered hybrid, are rarely infertile. Basically, the process of mating, breeding occurs in the same way as in all domestic cats. However, in litters among representatives of this type of domestic cats, there are not many babies. A distinctive feature of bengal kittens is the presence of a phasing hairline.
This camouflage process begins in the first weeks of life: long thin hairs grow in kittens, covering their overly noticeable pattern. In the natural habitat of the wild Felis Bengalensis, camouflage is necessary for the kids to survive, without attracting the attention of other predators with bright spots of a fur coat. Additional wool falls out by the end of the fourth month of life, revealing the full beauty of tabby bengals. If complete exemption from phasing wool does not occur, the animal will not be able to participate in feline beauty contests. The rest of the offspring of the breed in question does not differ from the calves of other species of domestic tails.
