Hybrid Bengal House Cat

image A co-worker of mine has set up a blog all about her hybrid Bengal house cat and is planning on conducting an SEO/SEP experiment with its content. This is my attempt to beat her to the punch, so when she heads to Google, I’m hoping this article shows up above her’s. 😉

According to Wikipedia:

The Bengal is a relatively new hybrid breed of cat developed to have a gentle and friendly temperament, while exhibiting the "wild" markings (such as large spots, rosettes, and a light/white belly), and body structure reminiscent of the wild Asian Leopard Cat (Prionailurus bengalensis). In other words, a Bengal cat has a desirable "wild" appearance with a gentle domestic cat temperament, provided it is separated by at least three generations from the original crossing between a domestic and Asian Leopard Cat.

The name Bengal was derived from the taxonomic name of the Asian Leopard Cat (ALC), as shown above, and not from the more widely known Bengal Tiger species, which is unrelated to the Bengal’s ancestry.

Dang… that’d be cool if it were like a miniature tiger… 😉
