There's no denying that there is a strong resemblance between our fluffy little house-cats and the big felines of the Savannah. At times, they are so similar that you can only tell the difference with the cat's size!
Wild felines have many things in common with their domesticated family, but these cat breeds are particularly close to their big-boned relatives. Here are seven cat breeds that look like they could be a wild animal!
1. The Bengal
Bengal cats are well-known for resembling little leopards. They were created by crossing small wild Asian Leopard cats with domestic shorthairs.
Bengals are fun to live with. They are intelligent, curious, energetic and love attention. One of the things that Bengal cats are known to love is water. You can often find them playing with a dripping tap, or even following you into the bathroom when you go for a bath or shower! These felines need a lot of attention, and you can keep them busy with a lot of play time and also by teaching them new tricks.
Renowned for their coat, which is full of distinctive marbling, Bengal cats are the only domestic cat breed that can have rosettes like the markings on leopards, jaguars or ocelots. Sometimes, these rosettes can be more than one colour, usually with a darker shade outlining the spot. These spots vary in colour, including rust, cocoa, chocolate brown, charcoal and black. Meanwhile, the coat comes in many colours, including golden, rust, brown, orange, buff and ivory.
Bengal cats are usually quite large, weighing between 10 - 15 pounds (3.6 - 6.8kg) and can usually live to be 14 - 16 years old.
