Welcome to Kawalik Bengal!! Geographically speaking, the Prionailurus bengalensis has a large-scale distribution. We can thus count a dozen Sub-species different from a genetic point of view and thus phenotypic , which result from adaptation to their environment. Variation in size, density and colour of the coat. Prionailurus bengalensis bengalensis was the species which was used for the first attempts of hybridization. They originated from a research program in the United States on the feline leucose.

Osterfen Whippets. Sally Gibbins,. During the 's researchers such as California's Jean Sugden now Jean Mills were studying cat related diseases such as Feline Leukemia and other cancer related viruses. It was noted that wild cat types such as the lion and tiger were immune to some of these diseases. The wild Asian Leopard Cat was bred to the common house cat in an effort to study the immune defenses of the wild cat family to these diseases. In Jean Sugden Mills crossed a female ALC and a male black domestic cat, the result were a mixture of solid and spotted kittens. One of the spotted female offspring was mated back to the father and the resulting litter had spotted kittens.

It was born in but its gestation period spanned a decade. It is the continuation of a project I began on another shore in the s in New England in the field of exotic feline conservation. Our goals today are much the same as they were then.
It is a very desirable complex recessive. My experience has been that the best full white tummies come from cats bred down from Millwood French Lace and Millwood Midas touch, for example Sutera Labu. In checking pedigrees, the ALC Taro, Noah, and Kabuki have influenced white tummies that remain throughout maturity of the cat.
