I recently adopted two beautiful cats from a local Santuary. The vet there seems to think one cat might be part or full bengal.

It doesn't really matter a whole lot, as we love her to bits regardless, they are both amazing cats! :smile: We picked them as they were a cute pair and the most friendly.

I'm just intrigued to dig deeper into what she may be, as she's quite an interesting looking cat.
She's very vocal and seems to talk to us, or call for us around the house. She's super hungry all the time too! Her coat is mainly a colour I haven't really seen much in cats before, like a really golden orange, with black pads on her feet. I read about Bengal 'glitter' and sure enough there's a sprinkle of hairs that seem to shine in the light (I've tried to catch it in one of the photos!). Her fur is possibly 'ticked' - each strand has bands of black and brown on it ending in black, it is incredibly silky!
I've noticed she also has like a web of skin between her hind leg and tummy. She also has a weirdly short tail and small feet, but maybe she's a bit chubby? She is also quite a small cat.

Anyway, see for yourself! Pictures: http://imgur.com/a/joyui Pictures!

Haha aw! I'd like to see. I think her 'bengal-ness' got doubted at the rescue shelter due to her slightly longer fur, no real rosettes and her short tail. They thought perhaps she was a mix?

Welcome to the forum. You've got a beautiful glitter baby! Definitely looks like a bengal -- has all the gorgeous markings. Your other kitty is absolutely gorgeous as well. Congratulations and thank you for rescuing this little gal.

Looks very Bengal to me ... especially the coloration and the glitter ... very nice looking cat! Congrats! Oh, and among Bengals, a shorter tail is not a bad trait at all.
