Bengal Cat is a domestic cat listed in our top expensive cat breeds. It was developed in order to look like a wild cat. Upon examination of its appearance, it looks like an ocelot or a leopard. However, it isn’t surprising since it was crossbred with Asian Leopard cats. The Asian Leopard cat is a wild cat in South and East Asia.
If you are somewhat afraid that the Bengal Cat has a wild cat’s temperament, this is no longer the case. It has been cross bred with domestic cats to have the look of a wild cat but the temperament of your house cat.
The development of the Bengal cat was purely accidental. The Asian Leopard Cats were bred with domestic cats primarily to study the apparent immunity of the breed to feline leukemia.
