The Bengal cat is a domesticated cat breed created from the hybrid of domestic cats, specifically the spotted Egyptian

mau, with the Asian leopard cat (Prionelurus bengalensis). The name of the breed comes from the taxonomic name of

the leopard cat.Bengals have a wild appearance; Their golden shimmer comes from their leopard cat lineage, and their

coats may show spots, rosettes, arrowheads or marbling. They are an energetic breed that require a lot of exercise and

Tplay. Bengal cats from the first three filial generations of breeding (F1-G3) are considered "foundation cats" or "early

generation" Bengals. Early generation (F1-G3) males are often infertile. Therefore, female early generation Bengals of

F1, G2, and G3 are bred to fertile domestic Bengals. Nevertheless, as the term was used incorrectly for many

years, many people and breeders still refer to cats as F2, F3 and F4, even though the term is thought to be incorrect.

Leopard cats are solitary except during the breeding season. Some are active during the day, but most hunt at night, preferring burrows,

tree trunks, and hares. They are agile climbers and have a lot of plantation in their habits. They rest in trees, but also hide

in dense thorny undergrowth on the ground. There, leopard cats feed on a larger proportion of rats than in forest areas.
