Let's Talk Bengal


In 1963, Jean S. Mill crossed the domestic cat with the Asian Leopard Cat, a wild cat species from Asia. This created a breed of domestic cat with the loving nature of a favored tabby and the striking look associated with Leopards, Ocelots and Jaguars.


Bengals were accepted into The International Cat Association (TICA) as a new breed in 1986.



Is a Bengal for you?

Bengals are high energy fun. They love water and playing fetch and snuggling with their chosen human. This highly intelligent breed is great at learning tricks, harness training and enjoy lots of play. They will test boundary’s and get into things when their needs aren’t met, so they need owners looking for interactive “dog” like qualities they have to offer!

All cats get 90% of their hydration from their food.

There is no such thing as a good dry food. Cats’ metabolism is high and as such they can not drink enough water to combat a dry diet. No, a water fountain will not solve this issue. Though its great play enrichment.


Bengals are more sensitive to fillers and as such need a higher quality diet. Balanced raw is best for your Bengal, improving overall health and lowering your vet cost long term. Second best option is a high-quality wet food.


Nature knows how to feed its creatures
