Meet the Bengal

The Bengal is perhaps one of the most stunning cat breeds on the planet! They are incredibly athletic and agile, with long muscular bodies, a thick tapered tail, and large rounded paws. On average they can weigh anywhere between 4.5-7kg, with males being significantly larger than females. Their heads are triangular-shaped and slightly longer than they are wide. Their ears are relatively short and round, sitting far apart on the head, and their eyes are large and round.

The most distinct feature of the Bengal breed is its beautiful marbled or spotted coat. To date, the Bengal is the only domestic breed to display these patterns, which often resemble those of wild cats including the ocelot, jaguar, and leopard. Brown Bengals with spotted coats are the most common variety. These cats have small to medium sized spots throughout their coat, often forming rosette shapes. They can also come in marbled patterns of dark swirls and horizontal lines that run down the body in two or more tonal colours. Aside from the traditional light to dark brown variety, Bengals also come in silver, and three ‘snow’ colours; Seal Sepia, Seal Lynx, and Seal Mink Point. The snow varieties will have blue or green eyes, whereas the other colours will have green, brown, or gold eyes.

Bengal Temperament

Bengals are highly active and inquisitive cats so you will need to ensure you provide them with plenty of opportunities to exercise and climb. A bored Bengal is often a destructive Bengal so it is a good idea to invest in a couple of cat trees or shelves for your cat to explore and view the world from a high vantage point. They are an incredibly affection breed that loves to be involved in all aspects of family life. Due to their high intelligence, these cats can be taught new tricks with ease!

Unlike other cat breeds, Bengals are very fond of water. You will often find one batting at the water coming out of your kitchen tap, or even joining you in the shower! They are very vocal cats and have no issues following you around the house, chirruping and miaowing, whenever they want something!

4. They have an exotic beauty: These cats are a sight to behold! Their distinct spotted or marbled coats have a gorgeous sheen to them which will make them the centre of attention wherever they go!

5. They are chatty: Bengals have a wide vocabulary compared to many other cat breeds. They can chirp, trill, meow, and even bark! So don’t be surprised if you find yourself having a conversation with your Bengal over a cup of tea at the end of a long day!

6. They are hypoallergenic: Although there is no breed of cat that is 100% hypoallergenic, the Bengal is considered to be one of the best breeds for people who suffer from allergies as they have short coats that requires minimal grooming. They also shed less than many other cat breeds.

So don’t be surprised if you find your Bengal at the front door, eagerly awaiting your arrival after work!

Best Homes for Bengal

Bengals are known to be great with children and dogs, however, you should still supervise any interactions just to be safe. As incredibly energetic cats, Bengals need plenty of space to run around, jump, climb, and play so they are not best suited to small apartments. You can also take your Bengal out for walks as long as he has been lead trained from a young age.

Bengals are very social animals so they don’t like to be left alone for long periods. For this reason, they are best suited to a home where someone is around most of the time, or where there are other animals to play with. Always bear in mind that Bengal's have a high prey drive so should never be left alone with small pets such as hamsters, gerbils, or guinea pigs as they may view them as food. Bengals can get along with other cats, however, they are known to be very territorial so always ensure any introductions are done slowly over the course of a few weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions About Bengal Kittens

Why choose a Bengal kitten from The Pedigree Paws rather than elsewhere?
We only work with the best licensed breeders in Europe and the UK. This reassures our customers that their Bengal kittens are healthy and will grow into well rounded adults. Puppy and kitten mills are now illegal in the UK, yet there are still a number of unlicensed breeders that are still trying to make money by breeding these animals in an unethical and often harmful way. At The Pedigree Paws, we work to fight against these pet farms so we only support the very best breeders who uphold the highest standards of animal welfare.
Is a Bengal kitten the right pet for me?
Bengal kittens are incredibly athletic and energetic! So, you must ensure you have the time and commitment to care for one properly. Bengal cats are a hybrid cross between Asian Leopard cats and domestic cats, so they display unique traits compared to other domestic cat breeds. Aside from their exotic beauty, these cats are very intelligent and fearless so expect yours to get up to all sorts of mischief when you are not watching! Bengal cats also love water which is why it is recommended that you keep the toilet seat down when not in use, as these cats will happily dive in and cause all sorts of havoc! Bengals are extremely affectionate felines and they love the attention they receive from family members and strangers alike, so ensure you provide plenty of play and exercise opportunities. These cats often accept a lead and harness well as long as they are trained as kittens; this will allow them to explore the outdoors safely. Many people also choose to build catios for their Bengal companions to allow them to burn off some of that excess energy! Bengals are not recommended for households with smaller pets such as rabbits due to their high prey drives. However, they are known to get on very well with children and cat-friendly dogs.
Is The Pedigree Paws trustworthy?
We've built complete trust with our customers and have successfully matched hundreds of kittens with loving owners. We pride ourselves on being completely transparent so feel free to check out our testimonials to see our success stories for yourself.
Are Bengal kittens from The Pedigree Paws healthy?
All of our kittens receive a full health check by a licensed vet before being rehomed. In addition, we make sure they are fully vaccinated, microchipped, and dewormed so you don’t have to worry about it. Bengal cats are considered to be a relatively healthy breed however they are susceptible to developing certain health conditions, especially with their eyes. For this reason, we ensure that all of our kittens come from parents that have been DNA checked. We also DNA test the kittens to make sure they don't have any genetic mutations that may cause the development of health conditions later in life. If no issues are present, you will know that your Bengal is as healthy as he can be! Our kittens are at least 10-13 weeks old before they are allowed to leave their mother. This ensures that they have been fully weaned and socialised. This is especially important for Bengals due to their wild ancestry.
Can I see the parents of a Bengal kitten?
Yes of course you can. We will happily arrange a video call between you and the breeder to show you the kittens. You will also be able to see the mother or both parents depending on the breeder.
Will I receive the pedigree documents of a Bengal kitten?
All of our Bengal kittens come with internationally recognised pedigree documentations. These vary depending on the location of the breeder and can include GCCF, TICA, FIFe registrations. In the UK, most kittens will be registered under GCCF.
Do Bengal kittens from The Pedigree Paws come from good breeders?
At The Pedigree Paws, we only offer kittens from the best breeders in the industry who adhere to the strict welfare policies that are set by internationally recognised cat organisations. Our breeders love animals and work hard to ensure they are healthy and well socialised. We follow a comprehensive breeder selection process that ensures all of our breeders treat their animals as family members and care for them in their homes. None of our breeders raise their kittens in commercial breeding facilities.
When can I receive my Bengal kitten?
We understand that you are excited to meet your new family member. However, early weaning can be detrimental to a kitten's health, as well as its development. We prefer that all our kittens stay with their mother and siblings until they are at least 10-13 weeks old. This is only a guideline though, and you will be able to discuss the exact time scale with the breeder.
How can I help settle my Bengal kitten into their new home?
Bengal cats are highly social so they should bond with you fairly quickly however they are also very territorial. As with all cats, Bengals can be a little resistant to change and can become nervous in new environments. Here are a few ways you can help your Bengal kitten to adapt to his new home: We recommend that you ask the breeder to send your kitten with a towel or blanket with its mother's scent. This can be incredibly calming to kittens that find themselves in unfamiliar environments and will help them settle quicker. You should only allow your kitten access to one room of your house at a time to ensure that you don't overwhelm him. Once your kitten seems comfortable, you can then introduce him to other parts of the home. Cats will often seek out dark spots to hide in when they are feeling nervous. Bengals also love to explore high places where they feel safer. For this reason, you must check your home for any dangerous dark spots such as behind the washing machine, and ensure they are covered. You can provide your new Bengal kitten with plenty of safe hiding spots such as old cardboard boxes or cat trees.
