I don't think this can be said too many times, she is absolutely stunning.
Is she going to be part of your brreding program? I bet she would make beautiful babies.

Thanks! She will be going to our good friend in Missouri to be part of her breeding program. I'm sure her babies will be little stunners.

LOL! Yes, she does look worried. But she always looks like that. Her sire has the same look. I think this feature comes from the E. Mau's way back in her pedigree. Good E. Mau's always "appear" worried. I love her facial expression.

So...a question...how do the blue eyes happen? Genetically?

Yes, I was wondering the same thing - about the blue eyes. Where did that come from? Is there Siamese in her pedigree?

It's the color-point gene. In Bella's case it is called "lynx-point", which accounts for the blue eyes. The only bengals to have blue eyes are the seal lynx point's.

Color point genes were introduced into bengal lines during the early 80's when breeders were experimenting with certain cats to produce a particular look and structure. Some of these early breedings were not well documented, so it is difficult to know if it was a siamese or other pointed breed or even a mix.

I've gone back to 12 generations on Bella's pedigree and there is no color point outcross documented, but the gene's are there and many bengals carry for seal, whether it be lynx, mink or sepia.

Amazing looking cats! I did a little Google search for some pictures and I had no idea there were any cats out there like that! Very nice and unique!

She's a beauty! Her fur colorings remind me of white marble. And of course, I'm a fan of blue-eyed kitties.
