These hybrid Bengal Cats are often prohibited and regulated by state, city and township laws such as in MN, IA, etc.

A fully grown Bengal Cat usually reaches a length of 14 inches to 18 inches.

Also Bengal Cats when fully grown usually reach a height of 13 inches to 16 inches tall.

Bengal Cats when fully grown are pretty big cats.

Although the Bengal Cat can be a medium or large size cat and can weigh between 8-15 pounds or more and range in height anywhere from about 13-16 inches tall.

Of course, these are generalizations and any individual Bengal cat could be different.

Bengal cats don't shed a lot.

Bengal cats shed a very small amount of fur.

However, the shedding may suddenly rise, which would be a pointer to something else.

The Bengal cat can begin to purr from a few months or so after birth and can and will continue to purr throughout their lives.

The cost for a Bengal Kitten ranges from as low as $400.00 to as much as $10,000.00

The cost for the Bengal Kitten depends on the breeder you buy the Bengal Kitten from but expect to pay at least $400.00 for a Bengal Kitten although you might pay more.

Buying a Bengal Kitten from a true authentic Bengal Cat Breeder can cost you up to $10,000.00

A true authentic breeder is not gonna let a Bengal Kitten go cheap.

Just be aware of scams such as online scams for Bengal Kittens and if the price is below $400.00 for a true Bengal Kitten be aware that it could easily be a scam.

Never send any money to someone without seeing the Kitten first and I would only hand my money over to the breeder when I picked up the kitten.
