How to raise a bengal cat

Bengal kids, so that they really grow up “home”, from childhood you need to accustom yourself – communicate with them, caress, in a word, pay attention.

Hybrids were assigned different numbers – from F0 in the base generation to F4, respectively, in the fourth generation from crosses between hybrids of previous grades (from F1 to F3) with domestic cats. That is, modern bengals, according to various sources, flow from 7% to 15% of wild blood. The difficulty was that F1 male hybrids (50% or more of wild blood) were sterile. Offspring could only be obtained from females. The F2 generation had the same problem. Only the third generation of hybrid cats was partially capable of reproduction. And only bengals from F4 and higher became full-fledged manufacturers. Such a feature, of course, hindered selection. But still, it was a great success. After all, spontaneous or targeted hybridization between feline species has happened before. However, the descendants of some of these crosses were sterile, regardless of gender. Continue reading
