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.

I think we should put more emphasis on selecting for sociability and intelligence when breeding cats. Would be nice if I could play chess with mine.

this is disgusting tbh, whilst the cats are cute, its abuse, cats aren't objects or items to show off with, they are part of a family, just like a dog or a guinea pig.

It's really sad, it ruin's the wild cat's bloodline and just another reason many cats in the shelter get euthanised.

How about picking up a black cat for free at you local animal rescue center? Many look just like black jaguars.
SamIAm (2 days ago)
So many kittens are killed if "they don't measure up" to make these ridiculous cats. And regular cats die by the thousands waiting desperately for a home, in shelters. Shame on you breeders.....

Responsible breeders are not the problem. The problem is people not spaying/neutering their PETS. Allowing them to multiply out of control, dumping them to create feral colonies etc.

This is the first time in my life I am aware of an animal called ocelot and I am supremely old.

Stop manipulating cats breeding. Adopt a cat from your street and you will have the best friend for all your life.

I love these cats I really do, but I think I'm going to just rescue. I love cats in general ans I will be satisfied with normal ones. These ones are really cute though <3.
StarSpirits (3 days ago)
Very well made video, I really enjoyed it. I've pet and Ocelot and Tiger before and I too always wanted to have an Ocelot, maybe now I found the cat breed for me haha although I can't have any atm since I have a husky (who I love very much) and he does not get along with cats.

Breeding isn't abuse. But breeding for money is. I want to make my own breed but I refuse to do it like these crackheads.
Corinne Survivor71 (4 days ago)
No thanks. I have a regular black cat. He is loving when he wants but other times he is a damned demon lol. I know for a fact if he could kill me and eat me he would at his tender age of only 5 months old.

If you want more people to adopt and neuter then tell them how AMAZING it is to adopt and neuter your cats :D Tell them how you adopted two 13 yo brothers and they loved you for it and you bonded strongly, you didn't have to train them because they already knew how to act to a humans liking. There was never any scratched furniture or pee on the rug. How when one passed of old age the other one became even closer to you, and when you eventually adopted another cat to join the family he accepted her because he was a bit lonely. How they now are being cute and licking each other's faces and you all sleep in bed together every night. How this was made possible by them all being neutered and therefore not fighting over turf or trying to breed with each other. How neutering your cat will lead to them living longer and being more cuddly and calm. Show the good stuff about it, please don't start yelling at strangers who chose a different path for what ever reason, instead show them how GREAT your path is and how astonishingly rewarding it is. We <3 all cats

Look, we "selected breeded" dogs and cats for thousands of years. Fast forward to today: everyday, there are starving dogs and cats abandoned in shelters desperately wanting a home getting euthanized because they are no longer wanted by the human who created them. They even throw puppies in the garbage dumps. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGCeazV-v_w&t=2s This don't feel right. Breeders ultimately help "create a problem" by making fads, so they better "help fix a problem" too! They better donate *a little* of their " Animal Profits" to shelters at minimum. *shakes head*

I have one. She was advertised on Facebook for something like £40, as a one year old Bengal who’s owner had been taken to a care home and who’s neighbour was finding her a new home on her behalf. When we got her she seemed smaller than one. She’s about 5 now and she’s a good sized, affectionate house cat. Can’t really hunt, runs hilariously, gets along with all the dogs. Everyone loves her to bits :) Edit: we’re also glad we brought her home because someone else had offered more money for her but the seller honoured our agreement...she was not spayed. We spayed her a little while after we got her as she was actually in season when we got her. She might have been used as a show cat or a breeder and instead she has a fantastic life and a great obstacle course for a garden courtesy of my Mum.

we seen the suffering caused with some dog breeds. I won't miss any human not only doing this but wants do do it with cats too. not a bit. only way those ppl can be any good for cats if you feed them to cats

If you think about it this is not that different when people exclude someone because of their race.
Zerika K (10 days ago)
Any other cat that aren’t purebreds are just as beautiful. Adopt don’t shop. Just because a breed looks beautiful or have special features doesn’t justify the inhumanity of breeding cats selectively and not helping the cats in need. Supporting these kind of stuffs is not loving cats for cats, you’re just loving them like you would love a beautiful doll.

"For the future of the bengals, I'd like to see them... be a sweet--turn 'em over on their side, or pull on their tail, or kiss 'em" Umm, this guy clearly knows nothing about cats lol. I don't care how "domesticated" he or she is, no cat will ever tolerate that.

To commenters who say it is wrong to buy an animal, you should adopt instead: Adopting is great. But there is NO moral obligation to adopt instead of buying. We should think: how did that animal end up in a shelter? It's the ORIGINAL OWNER that had the moral obligation to look after their animal. ….. I have no criticism of people who hand in their pets if it's genuinely the best thing for that pet. But so many people buy a pet even though they could PREDICT that: ….. - they don't have enough time or money to care for it - they will have to move house and may be unable to take the pet - they are not interested in training or exercising it. ….. If you are not SURE you can PROPERLY look after an animal for life, please don't get one, either through adoption or buying!

His cat is so beautiful and CUTE. Most of the wild cats don't have a cute face but since this one's a hybrid, his face has the cuteness of a domestic cat.

Probably around 2030 forward, and we don't selectively choose them, we can just alter their genes with an app
