Choosing a Bengal

Cat Breeds > Selecting a Cat Breed >

Special Notes

The breed is controversial despite its popularity, however, because some fanciers are concerned that the wild blood may cause temperament problems. Others are not in favor of breeding domestic cats to wild cats for conservation reasons, since most of our wild cats are threatened or endangered. Most likely, the Bengal never will be accepted by the Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA), since CFA’s board has voted not to accept any breed with documented non-domestic ancestry.
