Seven years ago, I met my first Bengal Cat. As a veterinarian, I was surrounded by personable pets of all shapes and sizes each and every day


Glenparth Bengals
but on this particular day, I knew I’d met my perfect match! The seed was sown, and what began as a passionate hobby has grown into a professional, pedigree breeding program registered with ANCATS, TICA and TIBCS.

Glenparth Bengals is based in the picturesque Rubicon Valley, nestled between the villages of Thornton and Taggerty in country Victoria, 120km north-east of Melbourne. Focusing upon cats of the highest quality, the property is home to half a dozen gorgeous Queens and three handsome Studs, combining to create exquisite progeny with that wild WOW factor! Coated in glitter and high contrast markings, Glenparth’s incorrigible kittens boast clear rosettes or striking marble patterns in Brown, Silver or Snow.

I aim to breed true to type, with rounded ears, puffy whisker pads and bright white tummies. More oustanding results are achieved with each new litter… so keep checking back for the latest updates!

Origin

The Bengal Cat originated from a cross between the wild Asian Leopard Cat, Prionailurus bengalensis, and an Egyptian breed of domestic cat called the Mau. The aim was to produce a lovable house-pet with the looks of a wild leopard, to reduce people’s desire to poach and possess genuinely wild felids.

The Asian Leopard Cat (ALC) is a small, solitary carnivore distributed from northern Afghanistan and Pakistan across much of India, Nepal and eastern China as far north as the Korean Peninsula and Russian Far East, and south through Myanmar, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia and Malaysia as far as Borneo and parts of Indonesia and the Philippines. Agile climbers, they inhabit tropical rainforests and subtropical deciduous and coniferous forests, and occur from sea level up to altitudes of over 3,000 metres.

Patterns

Bengal Cats have short, thick patterned coats made up of two or three colours. Two different types of pattern exist, known as ‘spotted’ and ‘marble’.

Bicoloured Spotted Bengals have solid, dark spots on a paler coloured background, like a Cheetah… whilst Tricoloured Spotted Bengals have two-toned spots with a moderate coloured centre ringed by a dark outline, on a paler background, like a true Leopard. These are called ‘rosettes’, hence, these Bengals are often referred to as ‘rosetted’ rather than just ‘spotted’.

Rosettes come in all shapes and sizes and everyone’s preferences vary… but, generally speaking, the bigger and funkier they are, the better!

Rosetted Bengals are highly sought after due to their uncanny resemblance to Leopards and Ocelots.
