With Males weighing up to 20 pounds, the Bengal is a large cat that is prized for it’s random spotted rosettes or marble patterns that give them an exotic wild cat look.

They are adept climbers with a love of water and they can keep you entertained for hours with their play. They can easily be trained to play fetch or even shake hands. Bengal’s form strong bonds with humans and will love being involved in most everything you do, they’ve even been known to follow people into the shower. Bengals are great with children, including small children, making them an ideal family pet.
