Bengal – Craigieburn

Tiny is a (nearly) 3 year old bengal/tabby male cat. He is gentle- natured, shy, and affectionate once you get to know him. His name is Tiny because he was quite small when he was a kitten and was the runt of his litter! Tiny needs to go a responsible owner and good home. Unfortunately I can’t keep Tiny because I need to move to a home that doesn’t allow cats.

Origins

The Bengal cat is a fairly new breed of domesticated cat that emerged in Asia. It is a hybrid of the domestic short-haired cat and the Asian leopard cat. Bengals were first bred in the United States in the 1970s by Jean Sudgen Mill and have since gained global popularity.

The history of the Bengal cat begins in Asia, home to the Asian leopard cat. This small wildcat resembles a housecat but boasts leopard-like spots. Bengals were initially bred in the United States by crossing domestic short-haired cats with Asian leopard cats. The aim was to create a domestic cat that looked like a wildcat but had a docile personality.

The first generation of Bengal cats were quite wild and unsuitable as house pets. Subsequent generations became much tamer and began to be sold as pets. Today, Bengals rank among the most popular breeds of domesticated cats worldwide.

Key Characteristics Of Bengals

Are Bengals Family-Friendly?

Yes, Bengals bond deeply with their human family and love participating in all aspects of life. They are known for being friendly and outgoing, enjoying the company of people and other animals.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Bengals may suffer from:

Entropion

Feline infectious peritonitis

Autosomal recessive disorder

Nature / Temperament

Fun, Affectionate and Playful

Suitable Environment

The ideal environment for a Bengal cat offers plenty of stimulation and enrichment. Bengals need space to roam and explore, access to high perches, and a variety of toys and puzzle feeders to keep their minds active. A home with a large backyard or ample indoor space where the cat can run and play is ideal.

Other Considerations

  • While Bengals exhibit a wild appearance, almost all Bengals being bred now have the demeanour of a typical housecat.
  • Bengals are known for their escapades, so it’s crucial to keep them indoors.
  • Most Bengals have a high prey drive and are exceptionally athletic.

How can I take good care of my Bengal?

Nutrition

Bengals require a high-protein diet to maintain their energy levels. This can be achieved through quality dry food or a raw diet. It’s important to avoid foods high in carbohydrates, as this can lead to weight gain and health issues like diabetes.

If feeding dry food to your Bengal, monitor for signs of dehydration and ensure they always have access to fresh, clean drinking water. Consider a cat fountain if your Bengal prefers drinking flowing water.

Grooming

Bengals have short, dense fur that can mat if not brushed regularly. Brush your Bengal at least once a week with a quality bristle brush to remove dirt, debris, or tangles.

Exercise

Bengal cats require more exercise than other domestic cat breeds. They need to be challenged physically and mentally to stay happy and healthy. Hide their food around the house or create obstacle courses for them to navigate. Puzzle toys specifically designed for cats can also keep their minds active.

Training

Start with the basics when training a Bengal cat. Teach them their name, what “no” means, and how to use a litter box. Bengals are smart enough to notice inconsistencies, so it’s important to always use the same commands and rewards when training them. Bengals respond best to positive reinforcement, so make sure to praise them whenever they do something desirable.

This information is general and should not be relied upon for adopting or purchasing advice.
