Bengal cat is a hybrid breed of domesticated cat. A cross between a domestic cat and an Asian leopard cat. Bengals have "wild - looking" markings like large spots and rosettes. They do not get their name from the Bengal tiger.
The Toyger was founded by Judy Sugden of EEYAAS Cattery in the USA. The Toyger is the result of a cross between a striped Domestic Short Hair and a Standard Bengal Tabby. This resulted in a striped Cat which after many years of hard work resembles a 'mini Tiger'. It's a designer breed and currently still being developed. Breeder's are striving to give this stunning breed the true look of a mini tiger over the coming years.
