Pregnancy in a Bengal cat: timing and how it proceeds

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.

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. Without constant contact, Bengal cats quickly run wild. This problem was relevant at the stage of breeding, but the negative fame of “aggressive pets” is still exaggerated, even mentioned in the standards – the description of the breed contains behavioral standards.

How to raise Bengalis

Moreover, the cautious attitude towards modern, no longer hybrid representatives of bengals is exaggerated for mercenary purposes – they say you will have almost a real Asian mini-leopard at home.

Bengal colors

 Despite the generally accepted belief that bengal is a miniature copy of a leopard, the colors of Bengal cats are quite diverse. Consider the main ones.

The classic version of the color (the same leopard color) is called brown (black) spotted tabby. Which translates as black spotted. Moreover, in different systems it is recorded in different ways. 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
