Bengal cats that have a wild appearance, are unusually beautiful, resembling leopards, or snow leopards, or even panthers – one of the most elite breeds. Breeding healthy, large, contrast-colored bengals is a serious matter, requiring knowledge about the course of pregnancy from the moment of successful mating to the birth of kittens. Pregnancy of a Bengal cat is a special period not only for her, but also for her owner. While the pet is walking pregnant, the owner’s trouble will definitely increase. If this happens for the first time, you should know in advance how much the cat walks with kittens in the womb, how to feed the pregnant woman, how many kittens gives birth and other nuances.

Not all owners have to deal with the situation that a Bengal cat is often sick for a long time. Most of the pets of this elite breed, who visited the veterinarian on time for the necessary vaccinations, live a long and happy life. Nevertheless, it is better to know in advance about what health problems may arise in order to recognize the disease in a timely manner, in the early stages, without allowing it to grow to the size of a catastrophe that threatens the life of a pet.

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.

It would seem that leopard cats of this color should be similar. However, in reality, there will never be two bengals with the same coat in both color and pattern, even if they have the same brown spotted tabby (n24) written in the pedigree. Continue reading
