Bengal Kittensengali kittens
The Bengal, originally named Leopardette, is a cross between domestic and Asian leopard cats (a small wild cat).
Willard Centerwall  raised Asiatic cat leopards with household pets in the 1970' to support his genetic research because of their obvious resistance to cat leukaemia..... Bill Engler also wanted to conserve the genetic makeup of tropical breeds by raising them with household males. Though none of today's Bengali strains originated from these females, he took the name "Bengal" from the American Cat Fanciers Association, the first register the race adopted.
Bengal kitten with racial patterns of stains and rosettes: Mr Mill was significantly involved in the International cat Association's 1983 approval of the Bengal race. Their intention was not to keep the race as hybrids, but to keep these females domesticated by further breeder.
10 ][unreliable source] There were others, such as the doctors Greg and Elizabeth Kent, who crossed their Egyptian mouse to their Asiatic leopard cats Baghara Khan.

He' a Bengal male: Notice the" Mascara" (horizontal strips along the eyes) and forelegs characteristic for the race. Bay Cats have" wild-looking" marks, such as large patches, escutcheons and a bright whit stomach, and a bodily texture that reminds of the Leo-type. 2 ] The rusty stains of a Bengal appear only on the back and sides, with streaks elsewhere.

Bengal cats are usually classified as either tan or snowstained (although there are more colours, browns and snows are the only Bengal ese recognised by the Governing Council of the UK Council of the Catherine.
There are either markers of marmor or stains within the Bengalese. They are also either marbled or speckled, but are also subdivided into blue-eyed or other coloured eye. A number of long-haired Bengal horses (rather medium-longhaired) have appeared since the beginning of the Bengali stud program, as long-haired house pets were among those used in crossbreeds with the feral Asiatic Leo for the production of the race.
A few recent pedigree breeds, and later pure-bred Bengal, bear the long drawn-out, longhaired receptor gene, and when paired together, they can make longhaired Bengal. Such progeny were usually castrated or castrated until the longhair strain was further developed, as they were not classified as a Bengali breed due to their non-compliant long or half-long hides.
At the instigation of a breeders name Damian Vaughan on 21 August 2013, long-haired Bengals were given "provisional" breeding registration in the New Zealand Cat Fancy Register under the name Cashmere.
