Bengal Cats (Leopard hybrid) **pics**

Anyone else on here have one? Just curious.

I used to be a dog person, then I bought one.

They are absolutely amazing animals, and incredibly intelligent.

Here is Ozzy.









[doing a line of catnip]

and a baby shot of his belly...


Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

They are how you raise him, he is incredibly nice, unless he doesn't like you.

He tried to shoot my friend... Good thing he wasn't strong enough to turn the safety off.

But the blue bengal, next to him in the first picture, she was feral so she wasn't that nice.

actually yes they are, they have different type of fur and most people who are allergic to cats are not allergic to them.

How big do they get?
I've always been interested in large house cats like the Maine Coons but have only had barn cat rejects. The Maine coon has always been a bit furry for me, I prefer a short haired, but would like a large bodied cat that can stand up to my Scottish terriers.

When on all 4's they are an inch or two taller than a normal house cat.
On their hind legs they can reach the door knob on the average door. Mine opens doors pretty often.

They definitely can stand up to your terriers, they are known as the pitbull of cats. Mine has actually been chased by 2 pitbulls, turned around and started chasing them. They have an advantage that normal cats don't have, their claws are pretty much razors. They can definitely fend for themselves, you would just have to watch your dogs because I had a german shepard and mine always stalked him and pounced on him and such, they were just playing though. Sadly enough the bengal would win in a true fight though.
