Basic information on fertilization features leading to problems

As established by veterinary medicine, the stage of the reproductive cycle of a cat (estrus) occurs in a special way. The time of ovulation, that is, the exit of an egg in search of a sperm into the abdominal cavity, occurs in cats after, and not before mating. Not all eggs mature at the same time, and 12-48 hours remain capable of fertilization. In this case, the sperm inside the body of the female can be viable for 4-5 days. Therefore, embryos in the womb can develop with some lag one from another – the duration of gestation, therefore, can fluctuate. Moreover, if a cat walks uncontrollably, then already being pregnant, she can conceive again (scientific definition of superfetatio, additional fertilization, superfetation). There are cases when a low level of progesterone provokes estrus in an already pregnant cat. As a result, a new sexual activity will be provoked between the third and sixth weeks. An additional pregnancy is not excluded if the groom is nearby. Then problems cannot be avoided – either one of the litters will die, or the cat will give birth again after several weeks of full-term second kittens. It will be difficult for such a mother to feed and raise many children on her own. So it is better to monitor the pet during the period when she is pregnant. Continue reading

BENGALIAN CATS CLASS

Like all thoroughbred cats, Bengalis are divided into classes. The higher the class of the animal, the more expensive it is. If you buy a kitten in a trusted cattery, then you definitely get all the information about it and its characteristics, so you know exactly what you can count on.
So, let’s start from the very top of the “class ladder”.

TOP SHOW CLASS
This is an ideal choice for those owners who plan not only to participate in exhibitions, but also to win prizes. A “Bengali” in this category must be 3 months old or more. It should be evaluated by licensed experts. The “portfolio” of such a pet must have certificates of prestigious exhibitions, competitions and awards. Continue reading

Weight and size standards for adult Bengal cats and cats

Domestic bengals in adulthood have an impressive size: males of the breed can reach 8 kg, and females – 6 kg. The height of a large animal at the withers is 40 cm, and the total body length with a tail is approximately 90 cm. The elongated body with amazing flexibility makes the representatives of the Bengal breed graceful, which is one of the differences from other purebred feline pets.

Naturally, females differ in appearance and physical characteristics from males. The difference in weight, and, accordingly, in other parameters, is immediately noticeable. A junior cat who has reached puberty, which is 8-9 months, is almost twice as large as a cat. Paws and tail are more powerful.

Given the goal – the creation of a pet having external and physical data of small animals living in the natural environment, special standards for the breed were developed. Continue reading
