11. Bengal cat and Toyger
The Bengal cat and the Toyger are both bred cats, made by interbreeding different cat species for a specific result.
The Bengal cat was born in the ‘70s, by breeding a domestic cat with an Asian Leopard cat. They get marked rosettes, a near gold coat, and the soft-footed big cat gait from their wild DNA but they are lovable and domesticated because of the other half of their DNA.
Toygers on the other hand, are not bred from wildcats, because you cannot breed a striped tiger with any domestic cat. But they are bred from cats with tiger-like looks, resulting in a cat with a pointy chin, and marked stripes on its coat.
