Welcome to our forum. It is really difficult to tell from one angle only. This cat has marble markings. There are many characteristics to a bengal. I do see rings on the tail. Usually, the hind legs on a bengal are longer than the front legs. What are the markings on the belly? How silky soft is the pelt? Bengals do not have fur. It's a pelt, just like wild cats. I do know people love a cat when they hear the word "bengal" in it. Know that there are marbled tabbies as well.

Bengals are vocal, highly energetic, very social, do not sleep 20 hours a day, they want to be around their humans at all times. Your kitty, even with part bengal, may not exhibit these characteristics. Without papers from a parent, it is going to be hard to tell for certain. But I do know your kitty is absolutely gorgeous.

Congratulations.

well its tuff to tell at this point because i got her thursday night and she is slowly opening up to me but so far is super loveable and purrs very loud. but her coat is still kitten coat i believe but the best way to describe it is like fleece/velvet. she is super soft. she was actually found as a stray/abandoned (was taken in to a no kill shelter and was fostered till i adopted her) because she has a cloudy spot on her eye but it doesnt affect her vision

Love her spotted belly. Bengals do have spotted bellies! All I can tell you is to enjoy and love her to pieces!!! She is so lucky to have found you.

She's definitely a little cutie. Certainly looks like she's got Bengal in her to me.
