Please can someone point me to a document containing the Bengal 'breed standard' (the standard to which all breeders should be aiming to get to).

I assume such a standard exists within this cat hobby?

Thanks :)

Jon

Go to The Bengal Cat Club of Great Britain site. It has links to breeders websites, kittens available, breed standards, etc

Cool link Ann, that's really helpful. In the bottom when talking about grounds for disqualification, what does 'cat showing evidence of intent to deceive' mean?

It's the cats which lie to the police.

Or probably a cat that has been made to look like something it is not - ie make up or selective trimming... whatever.

Haha, you're making fun of me but my mind seriously was going down that route because it came after 'cats that bite'. I thought 'sure cats might be wishing people dead but how will the judges know? Can they disqualify a cat for having a shifty look in his eyes?' gaaah I'm slowly losing it.

Yeah, selective trimming and stuff makes a lot more sense. I'm going to read a book now and act like I'm clever really.

My opinion is that the first lines in the general discription is the most important.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION The goal of
the Bengal breeding program is to create
a domestic cat which has physical
features distinctive to the small
forest-dwelling wildcats, and with the
loving, dependable temperament of the
domestic cat.

Those lines tell you what it is all about. You can break down the cat in to all picese and creat a cat that has all features that is required with out having the right proportions and there by not fit to the qoute above. The problem is that most breeders probably never hae seen an EG nor an ACL liv which makes it so dificult to spot the tiny featrues that really are the difference in the end.
