I was wondering if Pabette could be Bengal? She is very vocal and has remarkable swirls! Any feedback would be wonderful! Thanks

Hi Angela.... Thanks for showing us Pabette. Nice name by the way.

I have changed the title because Pabette truly does have a special coat. I have not seen a coat like it and I have seen lots of cats!

Technically speaking (I'll try) she is a classic blotched silver tabby cat.

Bengal cats are tabby cats. Many domestic cats and wildcats are tabby cats. But few have such a distinctive coat.

I have seen similar well delineated and high contrast coats on purebred show cats. It is the kind of coat cat breeders try and achieve by selective breeding because it stands out. It is flashy.

However, Pabette is not a Bengal cat in my opinion. She is just a very special tabby cat of random breeding - probably.

We can't be sure of anything by appearance alone. You would need a pedigree, a recorded history of breeding that is kept by a cat association to prove that she is purebred and Bengal cats are purebred cats.

Perhaps the first question is, "is she purebred". The rest follows.

Without a pedigree she might be purebred but you don't know. And if you can't prove it, she isn't.

What breed is my cat? covers the same points. Thanks for showing us Pabette. I published you short post because her coat is so special.

Best

Pabette looks very much like a British Short hair to me. 🙂

Thank you very much... I researched the info on Silver Tabbys and it seems right on... The pictures are a match as well as her coat being white at the roots! What a special find. I adopted Pabette a week ago and for being 9 years old you would never guess it!!
