The original purpose for creating the Bengal breed was to achieve the appearance of a wild cat with the friendly personality of a domestic breed. This breed is known to be very playful and energetic with a touch of curiosity. They are known for the attention that they give their owners so this is a great breed to choose for a companion. This is also one of the few feline breeds that enjoys going swimming. Be sure that you’re purchasing your cat from a quality breeder because this is still a new breed and if it’s not at least a fourth generation cat then there’s a chance that the cat will not have a friendly disposition.
