Bengal


Country / place of origin:
 United States

History: The Bengal is a relatively new breed of cat, developed by Jean Mill of California in the early 1980’s. The Bengal was developed from cross-breeding the Asian Leopard Cat (Prionailurus bengalensis) with various domesticated cats: Indian Mau, Egyptian Mau, American Shorthair, Abyssinian, and the Ocicat. The intent was to create a domestic cat which has physical features distinctive to the small forest-dwelling wildcats, and with the loving, dependable temperament of the domestic cat.

The International Cat Association (TICA) recognized the breed in 1986, followed by the American Cat Fanciers
