About the UK Bengal Cat Club

The Bengal Cat is a beautiful pedigree domestic cat which originated in America in the 1960’s as a result of crossing the Asian Leopard Cats with domestic cats. Through careful selective breeding and after much hard work these pioneering breeders in the States produced the Bengals we know and love today. The breed was introduced into Great Britain at the beginning of the 1990’s and has achieved great popularity very quickly due to it’s unique pedigree, superb coat and excellent dependable temperament.

All over the world breeders are striving to improve and enhance this already captivating breed still further and it is the role of clubs such as the UK Bengal Cat Club to play an active part in both the future developments and the general welfare of the breed.
