Bengal cats are the result of breeding between domestic cats and Asian leopard cats. They were bred to evoke the feline denizens of the jungle. However, in order to make them as tame as regular domestic cats, they must be four generations removed from their wild leopard cat ancestors.

Unlike most cats, bengal cats love water. This is likely due to their leopard cat ancestor’s affinity for water.
