The Bengal is not only known for its beauty but also its high energy and intelligence. They are not your standard lap cats. Bengals form a strong bond with their humans but they also love to run around and playing with whatever they find. They are very friendly and are great in all types of households but if you are looking for a calm cat that will only sleep on your lap all day, you may want to check your local shelter instead

What are cat registries?
Lots Of Spots is a TICA and CFA registered cattery and we only breed registered Bengal cats. TICA stand for The International Cat Association and CFA stands for Cat Fanciers Association. Both Associations hold the registered pedigrees of purebred cats as well as sanction cat shows in which cats are judges against one another based on their fulfillment of the breed standard. Each kitten from Lots of Spots will come with papers for its new parents to register the kitten on TICA and if they would like, order their pedigree to see the kittens family tree.

(first, second, third, and fourth generation removed from the wild.) A F1 Bengal is the result of a Domestic Cat-to-Asian Leopard Cat breeding creating a 50% wildcat cross, an F2 is the result of breeding a F1 Bengal to a SBT Bengal creating a 25% wildcat cross, An F3 would be the result of breeding an F2 and SBT together, and so on). An SBT cat would thus be at least an F5. Most pet Bengals are SBTs; cats with more wild blood than that may make difficult pets. F1 through F4 Bengals may also be illegal in some cities, counties, or states because of their higher percentages of wildcat blood, while SBT Bengals are not in most cases
