This is an excellent photo of a Bengal cat by Helmi Flick, the well-known, Dallas based, American cat photographer. The photo is watermarked with “Babbling Bengals” so this super looking cat must be one of theirs. Breeders often ask Helmi to photograph their cats. Helmi has a photographic studio at home but most of her photography takes place at cat shows using a mobile studio which is erected in a room attached to the show hall.
You can click on the image to see a full screen version on another page. It’s impressive.
The coat is a spotted tabby and the spots are described as ‘donuts’ for obvious reasons. Is there some Bengal glitter in the coat? I’m not sure. Glitter is a mysterious Bengal cat quality that breeders search for and desire (another page on glitter!)
Another unusual cat coat quality which you can see on this cat breed is embossing.
