C' EST CERTAIN C' EST UN CHAT QUI TENTE BEAUCOUP D' AMOUREUX DES CHATS.... MEME MOI....
MAIS C' EST UN CHAT DIFFICILE
UNE RACE CREE VOIR ICI
Le bengal résulte du croisement entre un chat domestique et le chat-léopard (Prionailurus bengalensis), petit félin sauvage que l'on trouve en Asie et en particulier dans la province du Bengale1.
C’est en 1963 que pour la première fois on croisa chat domestique et félin sauvage. C’était une américaine, Jean S. Mill, généticienne, qui réalisa le croisement et choisit un chat noir de la race american shorthair2,3.
QUI GARDE SON CARACTERE SAUVAGE, ET DES FACTURES DE VETO IMPORTANTES.
Most of our hybrid rescues have been surrendered from people who purchased these designer cats from a breeder. (Read dozens and dozens of first-hand stories HERE.) They were told they had the look of a leopard and the personality of a domestic cat – which is just not true. You can never predict how much of the wild and how much of the domestic cat will be in these cats’ genetic makeup.
Though buyers are willing to spend a lot of money on exotic looking cats, they’re later shocked and don’t want any of the common breed-specific traits they come with. They just wanted a pretty cat, that’s all.
Living with the loud meows and yowling common to these cats or putting up with the pungent odor of their marking and urinating all over the house, destroying carpet, walls and furniture, makes most owners scramble, looking for a solution.
They seem to be surprised by the chronic health issues these breeds are commonly afflicted with, too. After buyers pay breeders thousands of dollars, now they find vet bills for chronic diarrhea, upper respiratory infections, and more piling up. It can often make the initial purchase price seem paltry.
