11 Bengal Cat Fun Facts

  1. Bengal cats are the only cat breed that has rosette markings.
  2. They come in a variety of colors. Apart from their cheetah-like rosettes, their spots come in different colors like black, rust, or chocolate brown. They also have different color coats like rust, golden, brown, sand, ivory, and orange.
  3. Originally know as Safari cats, their name was changed to reflect their genetic ancestor, the Asian Leopard Cat, Prionailurus bengalensis.
  4. They are the ‘Rolls Royce of Cats’. Bengal cats can be quite expensive. They might set you back at least $3000 or more!
  5. Bengal cats don’t need Feline Leukemia shots. They are completely resistant to the virus that causes the disease! Because of this, they are currently being studied at the National Institute of Cancer.
  6. Bengal cats can make a raspy voice that sounds more like a bark than a meow.
  7. They are pretty much the only cats that love water. These cats are obsessed with the stuff. So don’t be surprised if they follow you into the tub for a quick dip. Be sure to keep a lid on the aquarium, these cats aren’t afraid to get a little wet for a fishy treat.
  8. Bengal cats are wild, domesticated cats and are, therefore, very intelligent, confident, energetic, and very alert, just like their ancestors were in the wild. They also have a very high prey drive so make sure your small pets (hamsters, rats, gerbils) are locked away.
  9. Bengal cats are highly trainable. They learn new tricks quickly so you can use positive reinforcement training to teach them pretty much any trick. 
  10. They have nimble paws know to flip light switches on and off.
  11. Bengal cats love to play games like chase and fetch; they also pick up new tricks rather fast! They like to play a lot and tend to get bored if you’re not there to engage them.
