How to Select a Proper Bengal Cat — 2 Comments

  1. Michael,

    I think the Bengals are beautiful. They are very attractive and alluring. This said there is no way I would ever get a Bengal cat. They are, in my opinion, too close to “wild” and can be very unpredictable. My vet has a couple of Bengal patients and even though she thinks they are spectacular in appearance, she has had some very unpleasant experiences with them. They can be a handful-

    There is another cat breed that has somewhat of a “wild” look- the Ocicat. I would get an Ocicat since they have no “wild” genes- they originated from a cross between a Ruddy Abyssinian and an Oriental shorthair. A spotted Oriental also does the trick for me!
