Bengal is the result of the cross between a domestic cat and the leopard cat (Prionailurus bengalensis), a small wild cat found in Asia and especially in the province of Bengal. It was in 1963 that for the first time we crossed domestic cat and wild feline. It was an American, Jean S. Mill, geneticist, who made the cross and chose a black cat of the American shorthair breed.
From this cross came the hybrids called "F1" (1st generation) then "F2" (2nd generation), semi-wild cats. Bengal cats called "domestic" belong at least to the 4th and 5th generations. They can then participate in competitions or exhibitions and be sold to individuals.
Since 1963, a selection work has taken place to keep the wild appearance of the Bengal Leopard Cat but having the character of domestic cat. Jean S. Mill was helped by the University of California, Davis, which provided him with eight females from the same cross for feline leukosis research. There were also crosses with Egyptian Mau, Burmese and Siamese in order to fix certain physical characteristics and not to fall into too much inbreeding. It was not until 1985 that Jean S. Mill was able to present one of his cats on display. The success was immediate and TICA quickly recognized the breed as a "new breed" in 1986 and allowed it to enter the championship in 1994.
Meanwhile, in 1989, the first Bengal arrived in France, directly imported from the breeding of Jean S. Mill1. She is a female and soon three males join her. The first French litter was born in 1993 and French breeding in Bengal began. The LOOF recognized the breed a few years later, in 1997. England hosted its first Bengals in 1991. In 2009, the CFA does not yet recognize the breed while FIFÉ has done so recently. From now on, crosses with Bengal Leopard Cats are no longer allowed.
The Bengal, resulting from crosses between wild and domestic cats, has kept, over its evolution, its Leopard stripes. It is an affectionate cat, very active and playful. He does not exude any hint of aggressiveness and never shows it. He is of medium size, with an advantageous physique, rather sporty, graceful. Also very sensitive, the Bengal is distinguished by its great curiosity. It adapts to any environment but needs space for its well-being. Female From 4 kg to 6 kg From 35 cm to 35 cm / Male From 5 kg to 7 kg From 35 cm to 35 cm
