Are you more of a dog person, than one who loves cats? Perhaps you and your partner are at odds about whether to own a cat, a dog, or both? Well, here is the perfect blend of animal for you! The Bengal Cat is an exotic domestic cat breed that exhibits many characteristics of canines, as opposed to felines!
We own a Bengal - a beautiful specimen named "Romeo." These cats are not only lovely to look at, they are amazing pets. Bengals enjoy water, much unlike "regular" cats. In fact, if you want to take a bath or a shower, watch out for your Bengal cat! It may want to join you for a scrub down. Much like dogs, Bengals enjoy chasing balls or other toys. They are also easily trainable on a leash. In fact, you may find the Bengal to be the world's most perfect pet. Like cats, they are independent and can be left for 1-2 days with adequate food and water (unlike a dog). And, unlike cats, they very much enjoy human companionship, retrieving toys and, of course, playing in water! There is an excellent article on Bengal cats that you can view right here for a lot more information, including where you can get one!
We have really enjoyed our Bengal cat. Romeo gets along great with our two dogs (one small and one large). Our childen tolerate him, too, as he does them! He is the perfect blend of a cat and dog. If you are interested in owning an exotic cat, the Bengal is a super pet for you and your family. Be sure to email me with any questions.
