Thread Starter 
Is there such a thing as Seal Lynx Point Bengal? I just saw one of Petfinder....looks nothing like a Bengal...a few spots, but definately seal point. Just thought I'd ask you guys!

Yes, there are seal lynx point bengals. They are the only bengals with blue eyes.

The bengal pictured in the link is not top quality for sure, but is none the less a bengal. Im thinking the red glow to the eyes from the flash indicates blue eyes.

The key to identifying the "snow bengals", officially known as the seal, is to look at the eye color.

Seal Mink is green

Seal Lynx Pt. is blue

Seal Sepia is gold/yellow

Nial, I just cannot believe that this is a Bengal cat. Maybe a mix...but you're the breeder.

And I have red eye pictures, and my cats have gold and green eyes, so I don't think red eye = blue eyes.

OK, well, this is the link I really meant to post. I didn't realize that I had only posted pics. Sorry. Today is just not going well for me.

That is her actual Petfinder page that says she has blue eyes. Also tells her sad story.

hmm that looked like a siamese mix to me and the red does happen with flash with cats that have blue eyes, my tessa has blue eyes and she is the only one who gets red eyes and i like it because when i print the pics up it takes out the red eye

Betsy, lol....I know the cat doesn't look much like the bengals you've come to know, but I assure you, it most probably is a pure bengal.
Only a DNA test would say for sure.........

The eyes look blue to me around the edges of the pupil. I am probably mistaken about red-eye from flash meaning blue eyes. Thought I heard that somewhere. My green eyed bengals pupils glow green or blue from the flash.

The seal lynx point bengals usually have poor contrast between their back ground color and their spots. If it's a poorly bred bengal and the background color becomes dark, the wash out low contrast effect is even worse, especially as the cat ages.
I believe this is the case with this cat.

Here's a link to a seal lynx point cat of my breeding. She is a pet now, sold as a kitten.
You can see that although her background color is the desirable ivory, her spots don't have that pop that bengals are known for. It is a normal thing with the lynx points.


Click the link, scroll down to the cat named "Taffy"

No, it is a bengal. Siamese should not have stripes or spots. This cat has spots.

I saw you're thread, too! Bengals sure come in a variety of colors. I guess I always think of the typical brown/black bengal.

Wow, they're definitely the same, but oh so different! Poor kitty, she deserves a good life now, I hope she finds a good home.

And Nial - I love the pic of Takoda on that page showing his "racing stripes" and glitery paws - so beautiful!

IMO its someone "attempt" to get a Bengal - it may have Bengal in the background. Its really a little weird in coloring

Heh...you need to go check out this thread from Summer 2005...
http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/sho...ghlight=velcro

I wish I could have kept him, but he needed to be the only kitty, and if you read the Velcro Chronicles, you can read about Hissy's experiences with him (I placed him with her) and where she placed him (he now has his own puppy and a cat safe fenced backyard).

He was just gorgous, and sure changed my opinion of Bengals (I only knew them from when they first hit the show hall, and rattled some cats, including my American Curls).

ps just re-read the thread, it doesn't explain (as does the Velcro Chronicles by Hissy) that after his owners got him out of the no-kill shelter I'd placed him in, he kept coming back to my house! They couldn't keep him in, and he kept trying to destroy a window screen to get in to my house. I found where his home was, and kept taking him back..making the point that I was worried he would get hit by a car, and offering to find him a home that could keep him indoors and safe. They agreed to have me place him so that the last time he came to visit, I took him in.

He is one charmed cat, imho, and certainly one I'll never forget. Frankie actually showed up around that summer, then disappeared until Winter of 2005.

Oh Pat! He's a gorgeous kitty!

That cat is definately a bengal. You can see it on her head and muzzle. She's got the puffy bengal whisker pads in addition to spots in her coat. The contrast is low and she's not a high quality bengal kitty but she's a bengal nonetheless. Poor girl, i hope she'll find a good home.

I've only seen blue eyed cats do the red eyed thing with flash the plural of anctedote isn't fact though so I don't know.

I just cannot believe her sad story - as I sit here crying for that poor, dear girl. I pray that she finding a good and loving forever home!

Me too. After reading her story, I see that they call her a Senior cat, which hurts her chances, however they do say she could be anywhere from 4 yr old to 10 yr old, so she may not be a Senior at all.

Where is Spencer, IA? It would be cool if someone from that area could adopt her from here. It's a way to get a Bengal very cheaply, and a way to help one that really needs it. Even a Pet Quality Bengal is worth $300 to $500. They're only asking $75 for her.

Spencer, IA is in Northwestern IA. Like 2-3 hours from Des Moines, maybe? I don't know my Iowa geography very well!
