Welcome to Luan's Cattery
The Bengal is a hybrid breed of domestic cat. Bengals result from crossing a domestic feline with an Asian Leopard Cat. The Bengal cat has a desirable "wild" appearance with large spots, rosettes, and a light/white belly, and a body structure reminiscent of the Asian Leopard Cat. The Bengal possesses a gentle domestic cat temperament, provided it is separated by at least three generations from the original crossing between a domestic feline and an Asian Leopard Cat.
The name "Bengal cat" was derived from the taxonomic name of the Asian Leopard Cat, and not from the more distantly related Bengal tiger. A Bengal's rosetted spots occur only on the back and sides, with stripes elsewhere. The breed typically also features "mascara" (horizontal striping alongside the eyes), and foreleg striping.
