That cat will turn on you in a heartbeat and leave you in a bloody mess.My advice to you would be to scratch that idea off the list or you will be a headline story on the news **Man attacked by bengal cat*

That's my wifes fear. I was assured though, that after the 3rd generation, they wouldn't do that.

Thanks for your input.


So that's one against.

Here's the wiki on them.
I haven't heard anything about them, but they look cool.

Thanks. I've been surfing about them. And was pretty geared to get one. But the bride has issues.

I know people who have them. Those particular ones are fine. If they are uncomfortable they make an intimidating growling type noise that is more fearsome than your average housecat's growl/hiss, but I have yet to hear of any blood being drawn (although that's not particularly rare for everyday housecats either)

Yeah, I would assume if you follow the rules of Gen 3-4 you should be fine.
I like cats, so I'm throwing my vote in the 'Get one' section.

Thank you. I like the novelty and unique-ness of the breed.
Just worried about safety.

They certainly are beautiful looking creatures.

I would be concerned about letting it outside like a regular cat though. It could easily be mistaken for a wild animal or shot by some asshole. If I lived in a rural area and had a nice stretch of land I would get a pair of these

Here's a pic of the one we're thinking of getting.
He's melanin-heavy.

If you have small children, it might be worth the concern. Otherwise, it's frankly a matter of the individual personality of the cat. They don't have the inherent submissiveness of dogs and the wilder, the more likely they will be independent minded. I think it's less an issue of personal danger than it is of potentially shredded drapes and furniture. But you won't have a rodent problem, either!

These bengal cats have what is known by the top animal specialists as having an anti social disorder.They instinctually attack other cats routinely and the outcome of the fight is ugly,because bengal cats are bigger and stronger than the average cat..If you get one of these cats,dont ever let him out of the house or it will attack other cats and sometimes people.

My friend has an Asian Leopard......hes as good as gold. But VERY boisterous. He hasnt killed or maimed anything, and he is about 3 years old.

The pic of the cat you are looking to buy doesnt look like a bengal....no white spots on its ears....are you sure its really a bengal you are being sold???

Heres a video i took a couple of years ago of him
