Even if the cat doesn’t eat straight, it’s useful to give the Bengal cat raw chicken white cartilage from chicken breasts, separating them from the bones. Entirely pre-frozen daily chickens can be offered. It is highly advisable to introduce cooked chicken necks as an additive. The recipe is simple:
– free from skin;
– scroll with a meat grinder (grind to a pasty state);
– Freeze minced paste obtained portionwise.
Such an additive is useful to everyone, but is especially necessary for growing Bengalis, that is, young animals up to two years old.

is a disease that is common in many mammals. Some of its forms are considered congenital and appear immediately, while others develop with age. Gradually progressive blindness affects the outer surface of the retina. Specifically, this form of the disease is characteristic of Bengal cats. Doctors call this disease progressive retinal atrophy.
The disease affects photoreceptors. They register the incoming light flux on the retina. Photoreceptor cells begin to break down at the age of 8 weeks, and by about a year the animal completely loses sight. You can notice the signs of the disease in the period from 8 to 20 weeks.
SIGNS OF THE DISEASE
It is possible to detect hereditary blindness in a Bengal cat by external phenomena. Continue reading

So, in the WCF system, the color is indicated by the code n24, where n is black and 24 is spotted. True, this does not mean that Bengal cats are black. Just in the genetics of colors, it is accepted that all cats are either black or red. All other variations are based on them. And we see the background color of the Bengal cat as golden, although it is not considered to be golden, respectively, the criteria for evaluating the golden color are not applicable to it. And only in the people this coloring is called “the socket on gold”.
It would seem that cats of this color should be similar. But in fact, you will never find two identical bengals, even if both have the same black spotted tabby (n24) in the pedigree! Continue reading
