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
Since 1980, the University of California has conducted a study of immunity and susceptibility to leukemia in wild cats. Subjects in particular were Asian Leopard Cat (ALC). Jane Mill (surname after her second husband) received for work several hybrid F1 females (first generation ACL and domestic cats of various breeds). She brought the ideal groom from India in 1982. At the New Delhi Zoo, the breeder was shown a small spotted kitten hiding next to a rhino. He was unusually good: dark brown clear spots evenly covered the golden-orange shining fur. Jane has never seen such a shiny, but sparkling coat – this effect has never been seen in domestic cats.
The fact that the cat named Delhi (full name when registering CFAMillwood Tory of Delhi) did not have a tail bothered the scientist only at the beginning of the experiment – he was not genetically tailless. Continue reading
The most valuable thing for Bengals is their color. The Bengal cat has gold spots with leopard-like spots; silver, similar to snow leopards; snow – white with a gentle pattern of frost, they are beautiful so that they are breathtaking. True, from time to time their wondrous drawings disappear – during molting: once their wild ancestors had a need for camouflage changes – here, too, bengals may lose their image in order to return in two weeks in all their splendor. Therefore, in this period they are very similar to ordinary yard kittens and it is during this period that it is very easy to fall for deceivers.
Bengal cat is a leader in cat shows
One of the ways to make sure the breed is true is to attend cat shows, as the best representatives of all breeds are represented on them.
