There have been a lot of different things written about Bengal cats and the types of characteristics they tend to exhibit. However, not many have given much information on just what these cute cats are truly like to share a home with.
We hope to be able to give you a little more information on that as well as what kind of a pet you might expect them to be and whether or not they make good pets. In this blog post we will cover:
Bengal cats all have some pretty notable personality traits they share in common. But, as anyone who has owned any cat previously knows, each individual cat has their own personality. If you are considering bringing a Bengal cat into your home you probably should know a little about this beautiful feline before doing so.
Even though some of the Bengal cats we’ve come across don’t show much interest in water, most of them really enjoy it. Their enjoyment of water is something we find to be quite charming and entertaining as cat owners.
A lot of them love to drink the running water right out of a faucet or even a water fountain. Don’t worry, they love their water bowls too. Often they find it extremely entertaining to actually play with their water that’s in their bowls or out of the faucets. Sometimes you will find them playing with the water by slapping their paws across the water’s surface like they’re trying to get something off the top of the water. Other times they can be found dipping their paws in the water and trying to lift water out of the bowl and then will lap up the dripping water off their paws. Some Bengals simply love literally splashing around in the water. Unlike many other cat breeds, Bengals are definitely are not afraid of water.
Something we’d like to give you a heads-up about is that some Bengal cats really like jumping right into the shower or the bathtub when you are taking your shower or bath. They seem to really enjoy the idea of sharing that time with their “people”. A lot of these entertaining little cats like to have their own inflatable kiddie pools so they can splash around with their toys and there are even some Bengals that have been known to actually go for a swim in full on swimming pool, just for the pure enjoyment of it.
Here’s a video showing you the habits of Bengal cats with water. What you see is probably going to surprise you:
Absolutely! Bengals are very independent, but they are also extremely affectionate and they can and will thrive well in a home that is just a single person or with an entire family. They will do well as being the only pet in the home, but they also don’t typically have issues with other animals. In addition, they love children as long as the children are old enough to understand how to properly handle them.
Since Bengals really love to be active and involved with whatever is going on in the home, they often will do a lot better in a home that has more than one person and/or pet. More people and more pets will often ensure they will be less likely to get bored.
We believe that if you are looking for a cat that is intelligent, easy to take care, easy to train and full of energy, then you need not look any further than a Bengal. Bengal cats make good pets for those who want a cat that is a little different than most other domesticated cats.
