The Bengal breed was created in the 1970s as a result of crossing a domestic cat with an Asian Leopard Cat (ALC), a small wild cat native to the Indian sub continent. The gene pool was widened in the 80s by introducing Egyptian Mau, British Short hair, Siamese and Burmese.
Today, Bengals 4th generation and later from the ALC are considered regular registered cat breed of Bengals. They are not considered hybrid wild cats and most states (other than Hawaii) have no restrictions against owning them.
Bengals have become one of the most popular cat breeds in the world due to their beauty, unique personality, and high intelligence.
They are generally considered one of the most hypo allergenic of all cat breeds
They can easily be leash trained and many love to be taken outdoors and for car rides
They are extremely loyal and will follow you around from room to room to be with you.
They are very social, do great in pairs, love dogs and people (if socialized properly by the breeder)
Two Bengals is actually easier than one as they will keep each other busy
