Woman in my area is rehoming this cat to a good home for free after vetting applicants. She claims it is a purebred and states she has papers but I doubt she does. Anyways I was curious if you al thought it was remotely possible for this to be a Bengal.

It is always difficult to tell from photographs, however, the last one shows glitter! And your only bengals and Egyptian Maus have glitter. I would venture to say this is at least 1/2 bengal if not a purebred. The leg type looks like a bengal as well. If she has "papers," she should freely share them or give them to you if you get the kitty. Note, certified pedigrees are freely available for other bengals online and one can download and print it out and claim it is that cat's pedigree. This kitty is gorgeous!

Interesting most people I have asked said no way it's a Bengal. So it's possible for a Bengal to have a striped pattern such as the one this cat has?

Striped markings look like a Toyger. Beautiful cat though. Toygers are like striped bengals.

Do toygers have glitter? When all is said and done -- a cat is a cat. If you want the kitty, get the kitty.

Yep Sherry Toygers have glitter as they are a bengal crossed with a super stripey tabby. I googled it and wasted half an hour admiring all the gorgeous Toygers online!

If this lady is rehoming this lovely cat for free, she obviously just wants the best home for it so it really does not matter about having papers etc in my opinion!

I'd love to know how toygers do not have rosettes and only beautiful striping. I am happy to know the glitter gene was passed down.

The head shape is very Bengal. The thick rich fur, the sheen/glitter, also very Bengal. The general body shape, hard to tell, he's still young. I would say at least part Bengal.

You could acquire a really great cat quite easily here!
