What do you call that bunch of long hair on my male Bengal's belly just in front of his hind legs?
Seems like there would be a specific name for that.

Not sure there's a specific name :?: and what more, can't say there's longer hair here...

But if you're talking about the "feline fatty thingy" hanging between the hind legs well I only know the real name in french :lol: (panicule adipeux félin).

I have noticed the hair there is a touch longer than the rest, it sort of goes in different directions to the hair on the belly and the hair on the legs too. :D
Maybe it's designed to hide the pouch of fat underneath. :lol:

The hanging pouch is called the primordial sack. In the cats in the wild when they leap from tree to tree or when you see the cheetah chasing their prey with that wonderful stretching gait, that's when the primordial sack comes into play. It helps the cat to stretch. Bit like a piece of elastic really :D Some domestic felines have retained the trait, some haven't.

Regards

Primordial sack wow that sounds so much better that the 'saggy bit' which is what I usually call it. Is it possible that people have retained this trait or am I just clutching at straws :D It would explain such a lot

:D :D

Yeah but usually it doesn't fill up with fat, does it ? Because Chaos has got some extra skin in the area (well, behind the arms too so he can stretch there too...) but no fat, it doesn't sag ;) (just looks like his pyjamas are too big :lol: )

My little grey has one of those, and poor gal! When she runs, it swings side to side. We actually go "ding ding ding!" when we see it, lol...

I could totally imagine her using it as a hula hoop.

My baby, Oakley, has webbed feet! Fully webbed at the front and partially on the hind feet. I know this is a trait of some of the fishing cats, but not the ALC. Does anyone else have webbed feet, or rather their cats? :lol:

I think most Bengals have partially webbed feet - it's one of the things I love about Dolly. I think I must have a foot fettish :lol:

Hi again Gin, you're doing what i'm doing and scanning the forum! I'm at home due to the snow, as we live in North Warwickshire and have about 4" settled. Oakley hates it! Re webbed feet, when i looked this up, i could find no mention of the webbed feet in Bengals. I love it too though, as it makes him all the more special. He doesn't play in water though, as many Bengals do, although he loves walking through the stream in the pond. Jo
