An allergy to Bengal cats: the cause of the appearance and how it manifests itself

Professional felinologists will always tell anyone who wants to get a pet of an exotic, expensive Bengal breed, first you need to make sure that the household is not allergic to animals.

Red color Bengalis

The most classic, that is, the original color variant of Bengal cats was brown (black) spotted tabby – in translation brown (black) spotted. In various international systems, redhead is basically written in different ways. For example, in WCF standards it is indicated by the code n24, where the symbol “n” is black, the number 24 is spotted. This does not mean that Bengal cats have black hair. It is simply accepted in established genetics that cats are either black or red, and all other variations are based on them. Therefore, the background color of the Bengal cat, which is visualized as golden, is not considered as such by the standard. However, this combination of colors is popularly called the “rosette on gold” color, and this definition is quite accurate.
