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.

Why are these cats being talked about as if they are objects being traded🤦🏾‍♀️

Am I the only one who noticed the little boy (8:56) petting the toyger super rough?

The Toyger might have almost converted me to cat-ism from dog-ism.

TOY-ger......? es en serio? jugete? ven a los animales como un OBJETO, hasta le ponen de nombre ''juguete''.... en verdad es muy tonto que reconocen que para ellos son un objeto, y saben que hay mas gatos callejeros en el mundo que necesitan cuidados y en realidad no les importa.... son tan doble moral, dicen como 'ay todos los gatos son hermosos y todos son importantes'' pero en verdad están haciendo algo sustancial por ellos? seguro tampoco paran y piensan en las consecuencias evolutivas, genéticas y en la salud de los animales que pude tener la selección artificial desmesurada. tontos tontos tontos tontos :c me caen mal

“If you look at these cats they justify the breeding” basically translates to- hey look we made a pretty thing it’s ok if thousands of animals are suffering and will continue to suffer through overpopulation starvation and inbreeding because we chose to put our money into making more animals than saving the ones that are already here

This is really sad, crossbreeding lives and displaying them as trophies, I really hope these cats get the best home and treatment they can get! Cause I would think they need ALOT of maintenance
Oh yeah yeah (1 day ago)

The Toyger had the sweetest face. I wanted to be there and rub my face on it's belly. I don't care how many claw scars I get the next day.

So... Can we start breeding humans too? Like humans that have webbed feet, let's start breeding them with other humans with webbed feet, and before we know it, BAM. We have fish people. This video just shows how people have no respect for life on this earth, and everything can be manipulated to make money.

As a society, are we serious?!?!?!?! These cats are exposed to thousands of people staring at them, touching them, and making lots of noise. They are put on planes and cars, which they probably hate. But we dont care do we?!?!?! I'm disappointed. If @Vox supports stuff like this, without looking at cons I'm unsubscribing.

Huh. So that's the bengal cat. I remember one of the professors at school talking about wanting to get one. When I showed him the book on cats that I had since my childhood, he said that he doubted he could find anything about the Bengal cat in there since the book is old and the cat breed is kinda new.

I hope this guy is raking it in. Those cats are gorgeous. ....haha, luv the comments about superfluous cats. “Why breed new gorgeous good tempered cats when you can have a maingy mutt off the street with tapeworms? You too good for those bum cats?” Yes. Toygers. Freakin awesome.

While I wanted to get a cat from the shelter, I had to buy a bengal because they are hypoallergenic and my husband is very allergic. I bought it from someone who bred for personality and not looks. She still has beautiful rosette spots, but she has an amazing loving playful personality. People have told me she’s the best cat they ever met.

I do hate unnatural breeding that is unneeded, I find it wrong, But damn that thing is cute By unnatural breeding I mean two types of cats being bred when they don’t want to.

I have a Bengal, they are such amazing cats. His name is Damon by the way. Did I mention that I love him? We have a kind of jungle back garden and he loves to climb there, so he looks like a leopard. He is aloud to go outside if many of you were wondering, people don't usually recommend it but we allow our cat to go outside.

Think about it they throw out the cats that they don’t like and keep the 1 they do and then get another make them breed throw those out keep the one they like then it repeats unless they keep them this is kinda messed up

“Designer cats” like they’re just objects ugh people are going too far
Dorian Bakker (10 days ago)
Let's just hope breeders dont go too far with their breeding like what happened to dogs. Whole dogsbreeds now have chronical physical issues because dogbreeders wanted something unique in their dogs because of some twisted sense of love for dogs. Keep the cats healthy please.

Instead of breeding and making new animals, we should focus on protecting the ones we have. It is selfish of us to make breeds to suit our desires and wants. Millions of animals are becoming endangered and those are the ones we should protect.
