Bengals Have Wild DNA
The first Bengals were created by breeding Asian leopard cats with domestic cats. While documentation of the hybrid reaches back as early as the 1800s, the breed was perfected in the 1980s by Jean Sugden Mill. Over time, breeders like Mill developed a cat that combined the beauty and grace of a wild, forest-dwelling cat with the temperament of a domestic cat.
Bengals Love Water
The threat of getting wet sends most cats clamoring for cover, but not the water-loving Bengal. These frisky felines will gladly drink right from the tap if allowed. A Bengal may even follow its owner into the shower or bathtub. If you prefer privacy when bathing, make sure to close your door and prepare for some serious meowing from your Bengal.
