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.
