Hello everyone and Happy Morhers Day to all cat mums.
Please could we ask if our cat looks part Bengal? She was apparently a back alley kitten and is different in both appearance and manner than our tabby cats.
Her back legs are taller, she has immense energy and sounds different.
Any help and replies would be great.

She may be part bengal but judging by the pink paw pad and the light patches on her belly i would say not a full bengal, a good saying to remember that i have seen on here copious times is "all bengals have tabby in them, but not all tabbys have bengal in them"

Your kitty is beautiful. Nobody can say for certain your kitty is part bengal. I am the one who uses the phrase "All bengals have tabby in them, but not all tabbies are bengals." The bengal breed started with a tabby and an Asian Leopard cat. Only a purebred bengal can claim the title bengal. All cats are different -- and I'm not saying that somewhere down the line your cat may have some bengal in her. She bears some of the striking markings that a bengal has. She's a gorgeous kitty regardless.

That picture is really bad for trying to judge such a thing. It's small and blurry, and shows his underside only, which is probably the least distinctive part of a bengal honestly.

Thanks folks, I am going to try and upload more photos but most of my photos are too large in file size.
She is a swine at the moment and keeps fighting the other kittens who are from another home, she scares me as she is so tough with them.

Beautiful marbling! Still can't say anything for certain! You say she is fighting with cats from another home. Surely you are not allowing her to roam free. Fighting with strange cats can result in your kitty contracting life-threatening diseases, not to mention puncture wounds that require treatment from a vet.
