Queen Ebony Spice
SouthHouse Ebony Spice of Lap Leopard Bengals
Ebony Spice is like the taste of foreign lands. This remarkable girl is the spitting image of an exotic rare Jaguar with all of the plentiful enormous rosettes of one!! This special girl is unique because she is the only Bengal produced from this program to achieve Charcoal coloring without true Charcoal genetics. While classified as a brown Bengal, her ebony coloring and huge doughnut rosettes with little acreage gives her the appearance of an exotic Jaguar. We are very much looking forward to the little Jaguars she'll produce!
While Spice has a fierce growl that sounds like it comes from an actual Jaguar she also carries an adorable meow. She prefers human companionship over her fellow Bengals and will purr with any attention which she can be very persistent in demanding.

Ebony Spice comes from a breeding program that was specifically designed to create consistent darkly contrasted doughnut rosettes. Her pedigree includes the best 2 bloodlines: Gogees and Legacie as well as Callista! Due to her pedigree, we believe she will have kittens that consistently share her awesome rosette pattern!
SouthHouse Cattery in Missouri has blessed us with our treasured queen Ebony Spice. Raganwood Norway (Ebony Spice's Dame) is a "wonderful queen, that is great with kids (never a bite or scratch), sweet to other cats and loves to snuggle in your lap. Very silky and a soft pelt with lots of glitter. She also has babies very easily." Raganwood Finland (Ebony Spice's Sire) is "a nice, big boy and getting quite heavy! As a kitten he was a lap cat in the house, now as a mature male he is less of a lap boy, but likes to be loved on and will rub up against you all day. Has never gotten nasty or aggressive with anyone or any other cats and not super vocal. He is also good with my kids." Meg of SouthHouse
Why is Pedigree Important?
The major advantage of buying a pedigree cat is that you know what you are getting! This is extremely important when considering the initial cost of a kitten, ongoing investment, the cats personality with respect to the breed and the Bengals long-term health.

Using BengalPedigree.com tools you can investigate pedigrees all the way back to the original ALC (Asian Leopard Cat) mating to see how many generations removed your kitten is, how many ALC's are in the lineage, as well as bloodlines and other breeds that were used in the creation of your kitten within the pedigree
