Do they make good pets? 

YES! In fact they make great active pets! More like side kick. If you are looking for a lazy inactive "house cat" this may not be for you. These babies are hand fed from 3 weeks of age or sooner depending on when eyes open. Palmetto Bengals stand behind our babies. We make sure before they leave your pick will be a great fit for you and the whole family

Fun Facts of the F1 (High Percentage) AND Asian Leopard Cat.

Due to the Asian Leopard Cat naturally using the restroom in the water in the wild as part of their natural instinct the F1 especially Higher Percentage will normally potty in the toilet with little to no training!

Are they good with dogs?

YES YES YES if introduced correctly and common since is used during playtime.

Are they good with kids?

They are a kid what are you talking about? :)

How much do the F1 (high percentage) cost?

Truly depends on the cub its self. Each are priced according to how close to the ALC they actually look and rarity. Considering they cost of parents alone was almost 12k not that much.  Making the base price only a fraction of what we have invested in the parents. :)

 

Early Generation Bengals i.e., F1, F2, and F3 hybrids with an Asian Leopard Cat (ALC), compared to later generations.

 

To explain better we have included a chart that can help understand the Bengal Cat.

.

Below are the percentages from crossing

an Asian Leopard Cat (ALC) with any cat Domestic Cat.

F1 = 50%

F2 = 25%

F3 = 12.5%

F4 = 6.25% SBT this level and lower....

F5 = 3.125%

F6 = 1.5625%

F7 = 0.78125%

F8 = 0.390625%

F9 = 0.1953125%

F10 = 0.09765625%

Below are the percentages from crossing

an Asian Leopard Cat with a BENGAL:

 

 

                           High Percentage Early Generation Bengals

 

ALC x F1 = 75% F1

ALC x F2 = 62.5% F1

ALC x F3 = 56.25% F1

ALC x F4 = 53.125% F1

ALC x F5 = 51.5625% F1

ALC x F6 = 50.78125% F1

ETC....

 

You can see why they are not normally tracked down to F100. 😊

 At the lower levels, the focus is not on the actual ALC genes/blood, but rather on the similarities (and enhancements) to the Asian Leopard Cat, especially the appearance and personality. This retention and enhancement of the exotic look while developing a loving temperament are the goals of Bengal breeders.

   What is all this "F" stuff about?  

The first three generations, from the original pairing of an Asian leopard hybrid to a domestic, until the birthing of the fourth generation, are considered to be the “foundation" cats (generations are technically referred to as F1, F2, F3, F4...and so on).

 

 With out the Early Generation Breeders the Bengal Cat Breed would become inbred and unhealthy in due time.   

Palmetto Bengals believes in hand raising every Early Generation Bengal Baby!
