Bengal cats are one of the most unusual, distinctive cat breeds.

If you have a love for the exotic, then you're sure to love the Bengal. These gorgeous domestic cats closely resemble wild cats; they look like little leopards!

Though Bengals are a domesticated breed, they require lots of entertainment and space to move about. Bengals are highly athletic and can jump and climb with incredible skill.

Take a look at these beautiful Bengal cats showing off their wild side.

If you're thinking about getting a Bengal, then make sure that you're familiar with this breed's needs in terms of attention and entertainment. It's a wise idea to make sure that you have a large space for your cat to explore, and to have plenty of cat toys on hand to fulfill your cat's natural hunting tendencies.

The Bengal is a beautiful cat breed, but it's not a breed that's right for everyone. Not everyone can handle mini leopards running the household!
