Artist's Description

I was lucky to discover this Bengal Cat out for a walk with it’s human companion in Central Park, NYC. Here it was off investigating a small waterfall.

The Bengal is a hybrid breed of domestic cat. Bengals result from crossing a domestic feline with an Asian Leopard Cat, Prionailurus bengalensis bengalensis. The Bengal cat has a desirable “wild” appearance with large spots, rosettes, and a light/white belly, and a body structure reminiscent of the Asian Leopard Cat. The Bengal possesses a gentle domestic cat temperament, if separated by at least four generations from the original crossing between a domestic feline and an Asian Leopard Cat. The name “Bengal cat” was derived from the taxonomic name of the Asian Leopard Cat (P. b. bengalensis), and not from the more distantly related Bengal tiger.
