How to raise a bengal cat
Bengal kids, so that they really grow up “home”, from childhood you need to accustom yourself – communicate with them, caress, in a word, pay attention. Without constant contact, Bengal cats quickly run wild. This problem was relevant at the stage of breeding, but the negative fame of “aggressive pets” is still exaggerated, even mentioned in the standards – the description of the breed contains behavioral standards.

Moreover, the cautious attitude towards modern, no longer hybrid representatives of bengals is exaggerated for mercenary purposes – they say you will have almost a real Asian mini-leopard at home. Also in publications, often, especially in the early stages of breeding, it was written about a Bengal cat as timid and timid. This now also can be attributed to fiction – just a Bengal cat strives to hide if the potential enemy is larger than her size. In general, Bengals are not conflicting, not vindictive, do not show cunning, quickly get used to and are good with all household members. They are rather proud, wayward, but not evil.
Possessing high intelligence, Bengal cats quickly remember the rules of living and can perform tricks if they correspond to their natural inclinations. These bold, strong, agile animals lend themselves to training and education only for encouragement.
It is pointless to scold and punish a pet for disorder – natural needs, even oppressed by the upbringing of good manners, will remain stronger than the desire to please the owner.
If the wild leopard cat Prionailurus (Felis) bengalensis (ALC) is very shy, trying to hide away from strangers and bustle, then hybrids, starting from the fourth generation, have already socialized quite well. The careful work of breeders with the new breed carefully preserved their “wild” appearance with a “good” domestic disposition. Now bengals are curious, active, friendly cats-intellectuals. They like to be in the spotlight, declaring themselves, in particular, with a wide “vocal” range of voice and various sounds.
It is imperative for Bengals to walk on the street regularly in order to more fully realize their active temperament and satisfy their natural curiosity. Bengal cats are not against walking on a leash, they quickly get used to a collar or harnesses, and friends and companions can easily choose a dog.
Despite its growing popularity, the Bengal cat breed is not suitable for all lovers of domestic tails. Such a cat will get along better with an experienced owner who is ready to devote quite a lot of time daily to communicating with a pet. But a Bengal cat or cat will surely fill the apartment with optimism, they will not let the household get bored. Joint games, walks – the favorite pastime of these pets – will make life brighter, more saturated with impressions and positive emotions.
