Hi, just joined the group and wondered if anyone could tell me if this is a pure Bengal cat. I’m not sure as lots of the posts say that the markings have to be asymmetrical and he’s very symmetrical. Very vocal and inquisitive. I’ll try to upload a couple of photos, but never posted Ona forum before, so here goes!

Wow, what a gorgeous coat.
I don't think this is a pure Bengal, but there could be a mix in there.
Amazing colouring and beautiful spots.

The paws should be a solid colour that match the base coat colour and these seem to be multi tone. Would need some overall pictures but at first glance it looks like it would be a cross of something.

Could be one of the newer breeds called the Charcoal Brown Bengal. Without pedigree, one can't be certain. But its a unique coat.
Showing its face and whole body shot will reveal more. Charcoal Bengal face have extremely dark face.

Charcoal Bengal types: https://www.charcoalbengalcats.info/

A Malaysian breeder breeds extremely beautiful and dark Charcoal Bengals with many variations. Some are outright stunning (see below). He seems to have mastered the art of using the charcoal effect like a brush stroke to not only make the markings very dark with great contrasts but coat its entire body with an unusual lustre.

Not clear. I think the one photo is not enough

It is easier to get a clearer opinion with several photos from different angles.

A picture of the belly would help.

Are other domestic cats with spots, also spotted on their skin like bengals? For nstance when mine were fixed i coudl tell their skin was spotted, matching the coat. Also the inside of their mouths are also spotted.

It would be helpful to see additional photos showing the full body, because Bengals have a distinctive body and head shape.
