Guide to the purchase of Bengal leopard cat


       Bengal leopard cat is an attractive cat species. Its unique patterns and colors are very different. As a leopard cat, it has a wild beauty, like the wild charm of cheetah on the grassland, which is one of the reasons why people like them. The breed of Bengal leopard cat is rare and can be maintained by breeding with the same breed. However, there are not a few Bengal cats hybridized in the market. If you care about the pedigree of the cat, you need to spend some time on shopping.


       I. matters needing attention in selection


       1. Body shape

       The leopard cat is a spirit full of wild charm, which originates from his imitation of wild leopard cat or leopard. Therefore, body shape is also very important. Obviously, a short round body can only make people feel dull and cute. The slender short / Siamese figure brings elegant feeling. Leopard cats need the same body shape as leopards. Trunk: slender and strong, not Oriental short haired cat type (too thin) or exotic cat type (too thick). It is medium to large in size (but should not be the largest domestic cat). Female cats are generally smaller in size and should pay more attention to the balance of body proportion. Limbs: medium length, hind legs slightly longer than front legs. Foot pad: large, round, prominent toe joint. Tail: medium length, thick and dense, with conical tail and semicircular tip. Bone mass: strong, strong, never slender. ????


       However, when we buy cats, it’s hard to see from the pictures what the bone mass is and whether the muscles are developed. Therefore, we only focus on whether the body is long and strong, whether the claws are large, and whether the tail is moderate and thick. It is impossible for leopard cat and civet flower to have a thick tail, so when selecting a cat, the tail is a very important investigation point. At the same time, whether the tail folding can reflect the cat’s genetic situation, please do not use the folded tail cat for breeding. The bone mass can be roughly judged by the hind legs and legs of a cat, because this part is basically covered with skin. If it is thick, it is good, if it is thin, it is poor. But it is only for reference and cannot be used as a judgment. The actual judgment is based on the hand. ???


       2. Decor

       The English name of the golden Bengal leopard cat is brown, not golden. So a lot of “golden leopards” are actually “Brown leopards”. The color is not the golden color you think. When buying Golden Leopard, gold is better than brown. But because Bengal leopard cats have fuzzy period, they all look brown when they are young. At this time, they mainly refer to their parents’ fur color. ????

       In addition to the overall look of gold, there is also a very important three color contrast. Namely: background color: in order to contrast strongly, the background color is lighter for better, not too rich. Otherwise, as time goes on, the contrast of pattern on leopard cat will be worse and worse. Pattern border: the pattern border should have “black lip line” which is as prominent as black mascara and should be closed as close as possible. Pattern: the color of the pattern should be gorgeous. The color of “gold” and “red” is the best, but it should be lighter than the border color. ??????


       Silver leopard cat has nothing to say, except the silver background is a variety of black patterns of different depths. Compared with the gorgeous three color contrast of gold, silver leopard pays more attention to the background color, presenting the feeling of silver cancan. ???


       What should we pay attention to when buying Bengal cats abroad? ???????


       After meeting, first of all, ask the householder to see the cat’s pedigree document, certificate, and whether the name of the breeder is on the certificate. ???


       Recently, many foreign advertisers advertised on the Internet that the cat had a certificate. Then when you went there, the seller began to have various excuses to mail the blood documents to you later. Don’t believe this!!! Basically, don’t pay first. Be very careful that some outlets provide more than one or two varieties. When you meet with the seller, you must pay attention not to go alone, because most of them are cross city cats, the price is not very high, and the Chinese people like to bring cash in, so you must understand the surrounding situation. When you see a cat, you’d better go there once, and then go again every other week to see if it’s healthy or not, so as to prevent them from suddenly getting cats from other places. ????


       III. other precautions


       1. Please buy it in the regular cat house and ask for birth certificate and five generation pedigree Certificate (the five generation pedigree certificate is only applicable to cats with breeding rights). Whether you believe it or not and accept it or not, it is the difference between the national inspection free and three no products. The breeding of cats is very complicated. I will not discuss it here. But it’s not as simple as mating one male and one female. ????


       2. Please don’t buy cats with crossed eyes (pair eyes, squint eyes, etc.), broken tail (especially the tail tip is hard to find), the number of toes is wrong (it should be the first four and the last five), and the color of four claw pads is different. These problems are significant genetic diseases, that is to say, there are problems in the whole lineage, and there is a high probability of genetic diseases. ????


       3. Please don’t buy cats with tears, ear mites (black inside ears), messy and withered fur. These problems are common diseases or malnutrition, not very serious. But even basic health problems can not guarantee the cat house, at least I don’t believe there will be good cats. ????


       4. Do not buy kittens that are sold within 3 months. Because 12 weeks of age is the time to get the second dose of the cat triple, then the vaccine starts to work. It must not have been vaccinated when sold under this age. Same as the third point. ????


       5. Do not buy caged cats. Long term caged cats are extremely distorted in character. They may show coldness and indifference, laziness and immobility, and may even show aggressive behavior towards people. This is absolutely not allowed in the breeding process of breed cats. Please buy cats that come from people and kiss from acquaintances. ??????????????

       Pictures of Bengal leopard cat

       Bengalcat (foreign name: bengalcat) has a broad, modified, wedge-shaped head with a round outline. The head shape is longer and wider. The head is slightly smaller in proportion to the whole body, but should not be too small.

       The following page gives you a detailed description of the Bengal leopard cat:

       Overall description

       The aim of the leopard cat breeding program is to produce a domestic cat with the physical characteristics of an Asian Leopard Print cat, but with a gentle and reliable temperament. Leopard cat is a kind of animal like an animal. It is alert to the surrounding environment. It is friendly, curious and confident. It has the characteristics of strength, flexibility, balance and elegance. It’s a medium to large cat with a muscular aesthetic and a slender body. The leopard cat’s prominent nose and mouth, wide and nearly round eyes, and a little small head give it a wild appearance. The profile of the concave curve is smooth and close to a straight line. The relatively short ears have a wide base and a round tip, which adds to the uniqueness of the cat. Its short, dense coat has a unique softness and silky feel. Its coat may or may not have a glitter, and it is quite beautiful whether it has it or not. The thick, drooping, medium to long tail adds to its sense of balance and beauty.


       Medium to small, with broad base and rounded tip. From the side, the tip of the ear should point forward. Slight grooming is acceptable, but ear tips like serval cats are not good.


       Oval, very close to the circle. The eyes are wide apart, slightly slanting towards the base of the ear. There was no correlation between eye color and fur color. The darker the eyes, the better. chin

       The strong chin, viewed from the side, is in line with the top of the nose.


       It is full and wide, with a large and conspicuous nose and mouth, and a high and prominent cheek bone.


       Large and broad; the skin is slightly loose.


       The forehead forms a gentle curve all the way to the bridge of the nose without interruption. The bridge of the nose extends outward beyond the eyes; the outline of the bridge extends to the end of the nose, forming a slight, nearly straight, concave curve.


       Long, strong and strong; in perfect proportion to the body.



       It is slender and strong, not Oriental or foreign. Medium to large.


       Medium length, hind foot slightly longer than forefoot.


       Thick, round, with prominent joints.


       It is of medium length and slender with a circular cone at the end.


       And will not feel strong.


       Very strong, especially male, is an important feature of his appearance.

       Fur / color / pattern


       Short to medium length. A longer coat (down) is allowed at the pup stage.


       Dense and gorgeous, rarely soft and silky.


       There are two kinds of marbles: spotted or marble.



       TICA officially approved three kinds of “gold”, “Snow” and “silver”.

       Note: silver is not included in the leopard cat standard issued by TICA in 2004, so it is omitted.

       Golden Leopard

       All brown changes are allowed; however, warm reddish brown is preferred. The color of the stripes varies from brown to black. White is better for chin, abdomen and inner leg.

       Snow Leopard

       There are different changes of seal sepla, seal mink and seal Lynn point.

       Simply put, snow leopard generally refers to the leopard cat “white with a little brown or milk color”, and its body is less marked (the stripes are various changes of brown). Snow leopards can be classified into three types (Ivory jadeite, mink jade and ivory blue goblet). Both Ivory jadeite and ivory Blue Tiger have Ivory like fur background color, but the difference between them is that ivory jadeite has emerald green eyes, while Ivory blue tiger has sapphire like eyes. As for marten jade, it is similar to Ivory jadeite, with the only difference that its fur background is one Bright and nearly snow-white light brown, like the color of mink. People who don’t know it easily regard snow leopard as “silver leopard”, but the white color of “silver leopard” is quite white (affected by dominant silver gene), and the stripes are also quite obvious (dark black). The color of the stripes (dark black) is quite obvious compared with the silver fur background (bright white) black and white.
