What are the "fuzzies?"
Most bengal kittens go through a stage we call the "fuzzies". Like a wild-cat cub, bengal kittens typically develop a coat that camouflages or mutes their markings. At about three weeks old nature hides a bengal kitten's pattern with white tipped guard hairs we call "The Fuzzies". Usually between the ages of 5 and 9 months the sleek adult coat reemerges. With outstanding marble bengals the color continues to develop and "fall out" leaving outlining around the pattern.
Do Bengals co-habitat well with other breeds of cats?
Yes, the picture speaks for itself.
