Bengals are hybrids of the Asian leopard cat and domestic cat. Bengals are known for their wild appearance, golden shimmer and slender athletic body type. Bengals are very active cats, they are extremely affectionate and despite the stereotype that they aren't affectionate cats, we strongly disagree. Bengals are super affectionate and love to be apart of the family. Not only are they super affectionate, but their high energy needs mean they love being on the go. Their idea of fun is playing, running, chasing, climbing and investigating. Many bengals enjoy water and if trained properly, will accompany you on a walk whilst on a harness. Plenty of families that adopt a bengal from us have them involved in many day to day activities and adventures. From school drop offs to hiking the country side. Bengals love to be outdoors exploring alongside their owners. Loud and vocal is a trait too many bengals, however, with all animals their personalities vary. Some may be loud, other are more quiet and reserved. For families or individuals looking for a fun, energetic, beautiful feline companion, think about adding a Bengal to your family. Bengals come in two different types of patterning: Spotted and marbled. And just wait till you hear about the colour variations..! Their coats come in a wide variety of colours which are recognised by Australian associations; Brown, snow, silver, blue and charcoal. Their coats are notorious for their luxurious silky smooth pelt which shimmers, a trait carried on from their ancestors.
