Not every breeder will be able to translate into reality the idea that Gene Mill, a geneticist from the University of California, implemented. The woman considered many options for crossing different breeds. Jin, flying to Taiwan on a business trip, looked out for a "souvenir" - it was a wild cat, with a chic leopard color, which she brought home and this was the beginning of her work on breeding these unusual animals.
So in 1963, the first breeding work was carried out. For breeding with an Asian leopard cat, Jin picked up a short-haired European cat. Work on the removal of Bengal was carried out for 22 years and ended by 1980. American CFA experts have adopted Bengals from only 4 generations.

День добрый. Подскажие мне как новичку, сколько ему необхдимо употреблять мяса в сутки?
Если кот на сухом корме, то желательно совсем не давать. Тут определиться бы. Или так или так, страдают от быстрой смены корма. Я даю всего раз в неделю, в качестве поощрения.
До года давали сырую телятину, в день по 3-4 небольших кусочка. Сейчас кот только на сухом корме. Но иногда ест мясо в качестве поощрения.)
