See the wild cat species that makes the Bengal cat — 3 Comments

  1. This wild cat was found to have natural immunity to FeLV I believe, hence the intense effort to develop the Bengal, producing both a domesticated breed for research (the hope was to confer the immunity to the domestic/hybrid breed) and, a lucrative being to be further exploited as an attractive/edgy hybrid pet.

    Bengals have been/are often dumped on rescues here, especially the lower numbered hybrids as they were/are not exactly the most easily catered for house companions.

    Beautiful Bengals may be, but surely the original Asian Leopard Cat should be enough for our world?

    Humans need to stop bastardising wild species.
