Bengals have an absolutely unique personality. In fact, the Bengal is one of the only cat breeds that includes a temperament definition in its breed standards. The Bengal is considered to be one of the most intelligent of all the domestic cat breeds and they are more trainable than the average household cat. They sometimes behave more like a dog than a cat. They will fetch, go for walks on leashes and are very busy and curious.
