Queen Dark Magik
Dark Magik is a second generation home-grown Bengal within our cattery and is sister to Eclipse and represents our continued efforts in breeding only the best looking Bengals! She is named following a theme in line with her mother's pedigree and along with the inherited looks that follow that theme: dark, bold, contrasted doughnut rosetted looks! This Dark theme has inspired such names as: Ebony Spice, Shadow Walker, and now Dark Magik. This Dark look has, in fact, genetically been programmed into this lineage from the non-agouti gene that is passed on. This gene is from the Panther family, hence why Shadow Walker is a Mini Panther herself.
Her mother, Shadow Walker, was born and raised within our Cattery. She came directly from one of our most sought after breeders, Ebony Spice, whom was very desired for her dark brown appeal and her large doughnut rosettes. While young, it was clear that Shadow Walker carried on the tradition of the large doughnut rosettes she inherited from her mother and so an obvious choice in our Breeder program. Shadow Walker has gone on to produce our next two stars, Silver Stunner Eclipse and the next Brown Beauty here Dark Magik!
Due to her unique genetics of being a carrier of one of the genes needed to produce Charcoals, she specializes in producing 50% charcoal litters when paired with our stunning stud Sub Zero, whom is also a double carrier of the other needed gene to create those creative Charcoals. This lineage produces the best Charcoals around due to those awesomely ginormous doughnut rosettes. In almost every litter one is certain to be picked as a top Breeder for the next generation or a Show cat.
Dark Magik Produces:
Brown, Charcoal Brown & when paired with a silver stud: Silvers and Charcoal Silver
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.
