Assignment Details 

Description: 

the Bengal is a medium to large domestic cat most renowned for its richly colored, highly contrasted coat of vivid spots or distinctive marbling. Can weigh 10-15 pounds and can be 16" tall. The Bengal is the only domestic cat breed that can have rosettes like the markings on Leopards, Jaguars and Ocelots.Very energetic. Bengals come in two basic pattern flows: the spotted/rosetted and the marbled. Each has distinct color patterns and oval eyes. Has a pelt-like coat covering a muscular body. They like to be off the ground, very affectionate, and very active with "good manners." Bengal cats can be both long and short haired.

History:

The Bengal was developed to try to meet that desire for a wild look in a safe way by crossing small wild Asian Leopard Cats and domestic shorthairs. Jean S. Mill began the Bengal breeding program in 1963, and Bengals today descend from cats bred by her in the early 1980s. 

The International Cat Association recognized Bengals in 1991. The breed is not recognized by the Cat Fanciers Association.

-They are excellent jumpers and climbers.

How does the Bengal cat have "wild" in it?
