Many people are familiar with Bengal cats that have a spotted and/or rosetted pattern. However, there is another Bengal pattern type that you should know about. The gorgeous marble patterned Bengal cat shown below is our Adore Cats Lightening. He is a very good example of the Bengal breed and this pattern type.
As you can see, he has a very handsome face.
The marble Bengal cat coat pattern is unique in that each one is different. Many marble coats are almost fully solid on both sides. Some include a variation of swirls. Others seem have markings that are almost completely disconnected. Lightening’s pattern is a combination of solid on each side with some semi-disconnected markings as well.
Lightening also has markings that are common on many marble patterned Bengals. In the photo below, if you look at the back of his neck you will see a sort of triangular pattern that resembles a butterfly. Also, though it does not show well in the photograph, he as a dual brown stripe that goes all the way down his back to his tail.
As you can see from the above photo, he is a very healthy boy. He is not frail but rather toned and muscular as a healthy Bengal should be.

This is Adore Cats Nolan. In these photos he is about 7 weeks old. He is an indoor kitten. The weather finally warmed up here so he was taken outside for the very first time to get some sunshine and fresh air. Also, the sun shows how beautiful the contrast is on his coat. He has lots of Bengal glitter on his coat that you can see glistening in the sun. He enjoyed taking in the sights and sounds of outdoors and was unusually still :-). Even though he enjoyed his first venture outside, he was glad to go back inside to be with his mom and siblings. He is a very sweet boy.
Bengal cats come in a variety of types and colors. Here is an example of the colors and types included in what is known as “snow” Bengals. The kittens are two weeks old in the photos below.
