This majestic breed touched our lives in the form of a very small very special little kitten named Leo.

The Bengal is a hybridisation of domestic cats & Asian Leopard Cats (a small wild cat). In 1963 Jean Mill (Sudgen) of Yuma, Arizona crossed an Asian Leopard Cat with a black domestic cat, which produed two kittens, including a fertaile female. She then crossed the offspring back to the Asian Leopard Cat which produced a black and a spotted kitten. With the help of Dr Willard Centerwell, the developement continued and included other breeds. The breed obtained official recognition with TICA in 1984. Today the goal of the Bengal breeding program is to create a domestic cat which has the physical features distinctive to the small forest-dwelling wild cats, but with the loving dependable temperament of the domestic cat.
