Hi All

Hope you all well. Read a lot online and in desperate help.

We plan to move to Thailand, but need to prove one of our cats Zarrina is 5th Generattion Bengal. Now she is a Russian Black (mum)/ Bengal (dad) mix. The person we got her from looked after the Bengal, a foster cat, for short time and then he moved on. She has no documents for him, so no way to know if he was indeed a Bengal or a Tabby, or what generation Bengal.
I am 100% Zarrina is not a "wild" Bengal.
I have tried DNA route and not possible.

Does any have any advice, or looking at photos have any thought. Just trying to get all help I can.

Many Thanks!

I find the whole bengal mix thing almost comical because there are no purebred bengals. We use that term, but every bengal will have Egyptian Maus, Ocicats, Abys, Bristols, Burmese, American Short Hairs in their pedigrees. Thus, if your baby has a bengal parent, there is a F generation in there (although they are now wanting to call them just "generations"). Without registration papers, it is going to be impossible. You can easily tell Early Generation bengals, but later generations, they cannot differentiate between generations.

Note that ALL bengals have wild blood in them. Mine is an F9 with 13.77% wild blood. It does not make the cat a wild animal, just that they will continue to have ALC blood in them regardless of the generation.

Since you have no documentation, all you can say is that your cat is a domestic short haired cat. Your pictures did not show up, so I cannot offer an opinion. Each country is different in their animal import rules, however, you must follow them to a T or risk having them confiscate your cat. It happens here in the US with US Fish and Wildlife.

You might want to try and post your pictures again.
