Bengals are strong, intelligent cats who form strong bonds with their owners. They eat regular cat food and use the litter box, just like other domestic breeds. Bengals are medium size and muscular cats. Another interesting trait of the Bengal is their love of water, they scoop water with their paws before drinking and love to play in puddles or in the shower. Bengals are unique in that they do not have fur like other cats, instead they have a pelt.
