By making collages of wildcats and comparing small forest dwelling wildcats, especially the southern species of Asian Leopard cats, with ground dwelling wildcats and then seeing where our Bengals fit in the spectrum between the small tree dwelling wildcats and the ground dwelling wildcats, we have been able to make better selections of kittens. In order to help other Bengal breeders who may share a similar goal, we've created a Blog where we plan to post these collages and explain what we are learning from them. This page will grow as we have the time to put on thoughts in an article with the pictures to match. We hope you find it helpful.
