There’s not much you can say about these Bengal cat pictures except to question whether they are genuine. It is both hard to believe that they are genuine and to believe that they are not. I’ll explain what I mean. In the photographs you can see the breeder’s hand and the wall behind the cat. The hand is of a normal skin colour within tolerances. And the wall looks fairly neutral. Also, I have ‘detuned’ these pictures by removing some of the pink coloration. However, we still see a pink Bengal cat which is very peculiar. Perhaps I need to detune it some more.
The pictures come from a group on Facebook where breeders present their cats to other breeders. There are actually selling their cats on this website which I regret to say is against Facebook policy but that is another matter.
You can see the strangeness of the colouration in this FB screenshot:
The question is whether you can selectively breed pink coloration into a cat’s coat! I’ve never seen that question asked before and I’ve no idea whether you can or can’t. I guess you can judging by these photographs but are they genuine, I ask again?
I’m going to guess and say that even with my photo-editing of the pictures to take some of the pink out of them, in real life, this Bengal cat is not quite so pink as you see here. But there will be some pink tint to the cat’s background colour. In which case it is remarkable and unique. This is genuinely unique if it’s true and I’m still doubtful.
The cat was bred and photographed by Sergey Kurenkov who lives in Penza, Russia. The Russians like to take breeding to new extremes but they are very good at it.
