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.

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.
