this is the name of a breed of cat. after a look on the net i now know it is not a cat breed which originates in bengal, india but a hybrid of sorts between a leopard cat and a domestic cat and given the name 'bengal' (over a period of breeding it has evolved into a sweet-tempered domestic cat that has leopard-like spots and its shape).

does anyone know if this breed of cat can be bought in india? does anyone on indiamike own one?

wasn't sure where this question belongs...so chai and chat it is

Your post got me interested. I thought you were saying the Bengal blue is a hybrid between a domestic cat and a leopard. As that seems an unlikely union at best, I looked further and now see you must have meant a cross between a domestic cat and a leopard cat.
wikipedia Bengal cat

wikipedia leopard cat
As wikipedia is the extent of my knowledge on the subject, I can't help you figure out where to buy one.
