Who can resist these beautiful cats? Known for being active, playful, and having a friendly temperament, they make wonderful pets. Often a little bigger than house cats, up to 15 lbs. These stunning cats are related to the majestic leopards – which pet parents can see simply by petting their lovely coats with spots and other markings. Just like their leopard ancestors, the Bengals love water!
If you’ve just adopted or purchased a Bengal, you can learn more about this cat breed by visiting The International Bengal Cat Society.
Many are proud to own Bengals including celebrities such as Kristen Stewart, from the Twilight movies!
