The Bengal cat is a hybrid (mixed) breed of house cat.[2] They were bred to be even-tempered. This means they do not get angry easily like most house cats.[3] Most Bengal cats weigh 8–15 pounds (3.6–6.8 kilograms) and 10–12 inches (25–30 centimeters) in height.[4][5]

It was bred with a leopard cat and many other domesticated cats around 1990.[6] From the leopard cat, it has a marbled and spotted coat like a leopard.[7]
