Check out http://www.vox.com to get up to speed on everything from Kurdistan to the Kim Kardashian app. By breeding house cats with wild animals, humans developed hybrid cats that look like little leopards. Bengal cats are a breed that was developed by breeding domestic cats with asian leopard cats. The first American bengal breeder is a woman named Jean Mill, but her work has continued through other breeders. We met one of those breeders, Anthony Hutcherson, when we went to film the cats at the Westminster Dog Show. Besides bengals, we also saw another hybrid breed: savannahs. Instead of asian leopard cats, savannahs were developed by breeding house cats with servals. Unlike the other two breeds, the last breed we met, toygers, are not hybrid cats. Breeder Judy Sugden created the breed by carefully breeding domestic cats with qualities that resemble wild tigers. To learn more about the cats and the breeders that made possible, watch the video above.

Oh my gooooddd theyre so adorable but I gotta say... my adopted babies are way cuterrrr (; Breeded cats may be beautiful, but the ones on the street are even more beautiful and FREE!! Remember that one cat in the vine with the messed up face? That's the result of inbreeding. Please help the babies who've been abandoned and born in the streets! 😇💖❤💓

Something about this is unsettling to me. I think it's the connotation that you can breed a species and it becomes a product; whether they see them as products or not is neither here nor there, since they are obviously well-cared for...I estimate that it's because we usually associate the word 'product' with inanimate objects... Show-casing always implies 'product' to me :/ You wouldn't do this with children would you? (that would indeed be alarming).

How about a snow leopard cat
But they jusify the breeding? Oh, please, to YOU it’s justified. Ridiculous.

Yeah, this is immoral. There are so many homeless and sheltered cats. Adopt one and forget what your human eyes find “unique.” These are living beings, not collector’s items or toys.

I have a bengal at home. They’re the most amazing little kitties, but they get thrown out quite often, since they need A LOT of investment and attention. If you ever decide to get one, you will need to be really prepared

As soon as Vicki Jeffers was talking about what she'd like to do to get from her cat "the beautiful tail and the nice ears." and giving tips on breeding, I was just disgusted... These people are treating these cats like objects.. Pure selfish behavior. Typical Americans.

If hybrid breeding is done ethically with the ideas of health and genetic diversity being key to avoid health defects and inbreeding, hybrid breeds can have hybrid vigor, taking the good traits from one breed and mixing them with the good traits from another. Problem is people are more interesting in the phenotype over the genotype, looks are more important than health.

my mom has a savannah cat. it was the only type of cat my mom would get, because all the other cats "aren't as beautiful." i think that's complete bs. my dad's generic black cat was rescued as a kitten and she's still a perfectly adorable and beautiful pet. adopt don't shop - it saves money and pets' lives

I watched this video a long time ago, i was fascinated. I adopted a 7yr old silver bengal last week, i noticed that the older generations aren’t as ‘perfect’ looking as the younger ones in the cat show and on instagram... re-watching this makes me have mixed feelings. I strongly agree with the “adopt don’t shop” message! Even beautiful designer breeder cats ends up in the shelter, because the new ones has bigger cuter eyes, more vibrant patterns and greener eyes... i love our new cat friend very much, he’s sweet gentle super chill and well behaved yet still have a playful dog like personality, he might not be the latest IT cat but he has won my heart...

Deffective Doggo (4 days ago)
I feel they should make their way towards different coats too, like a white toyger or a darker coat bengal. My dream cat would be like a black coat bengal so it can be reminiscent of a black jaguar. Hopefully it doesn’t stay a dream for long

I’m sorry but this can’t be good for the cats. Shoving cameras in their faces and having hundreds of people stare at them obviously will probably scare the cats. Shopping for a cat like that is terrible. Adopt them.

Why should I adopt and not shop? Why do I have to pay for others mistakes? No issues adopting, as I own 2 now, but if there is a certain breed I want and can afford; there is no reason I should be limited to adoption. People need to get over themselves.

Why don’t they breed a serval and a tiger then breed that hybrid with a domestic cat if that doesn’t work then breed the hybrid with the leopard then breed that hybrid with a domestic cat

I don’t care whether you want a rescue or a pedigree pet, don’t talk about them or treat them as if they’re objects. The people in these videos may be benefitting the breed, but the way they talk about these cats is so disgusting to me. Such arrogance coming from that woman talking about her designer cats as if they were a handbag.

Selective breeding is a disaster waiting to happen (for the animal). Humans creating things they find attractive/useful at the cost of horrible health issues for the animal. Chickens are enormous and pop out eggs like nobody's business, each sucking out proteins and energy and that's just one of the health issues. Cows have udders the size of a calf hanging on them. Pugs, bulldogs and others suffocate "of natural causes" and even some of the more normal looking dogs like German Shepherds have (back) problems.

Bengal cats are one of the few cat breeds that are hypoallergenic and won’t cause problems for people that are looking to have a pet cat but have allergies. Although adopting outweighs buying, there are still some positives to buying a cat.
Trvrr Zbsky (9 days ago)
I prefer selective animal breeding over idiots who let their animals breed freely on the streets with anything... I mean, do people even pay attention to what breeds of cats are overpopulated? Hell yeah id adopt a bengal from a shelter if any existed that is! Its the overpopulation of common cat breeds from common people thats the problem, selective cat breeders are just 1% compared to the common ones... but noup, ppl still attact selectiv breeders...

Humans can be too creative and crazy... illegal to have pet leopard, tiger and ocelots? We'll make tiny tiger, leopard and ocelots by cats!

Human: We like fashion Cats: I want fashion too Human: We'll need you to breed with other kinds to have unique patern fashion. Government: IT IS ILLEGAL TO HAVE SAFE CATS THAT ARE NOT NATURAL. ONLY HUMANS CAN HAVE FASHION.
A bangle bred with a savanna would be rad!

delantine (10 days ago)
These cats are beautiful but we should be concerned with existing cats first. Many cats are in stores or shelters where they will be put down if unwanted. Many cats are on the street and don't know when their next meal will be. By encouraging responsible pet buying, adopting more animals, (or heck, just neutering feral cats) we need to be decreasing the cat population humanely before even considering breeding tons more.

ok think of my what you want now but I *really* want a toyger
