Realize that the F1 and F2 cats are a category change from the regular Bengal. The ALC is a category change from the F1. They are different and they are not for everyone.
An Asian Leopard Cat (ALC) is not a domestic cat. That should seem obvious to most people but in some ways, it is not so obvious to everyone. Each kitten has to be raised with tremendous time and work. It is not their nature to love on people but they can certainly do just that if they are raised correctly. If you are looking for a pet, it is strongly recommended that you spay or neuter your cat at a young age. If you have ever been around a teenager or can really remember your own teenage years than you know what hormones can do. I have whole/intact ALCs that I can handle with ease but if they are going to revert, it will most likely be when the hormones hit.I have been leaving my ALC kittens on their mom, if possible, for 2 weeks. This is earlier than when I take the F1s. I want to give the most maternal nutrition and at the same time be able to fully tame them to the human touch.Many of my cubs do use the litter box. Many ALCs or F1s will prefer to use water. They might use a water bowl, the tub or if you are lucky, they will train them self to the toilet bowl. (It really has to be their idea you know.)We are now feeding our cats Zupreem. It is a canned food. I will also be mixing it with raw food. While I like the raw for these cats, the fact is that they are so prone to kidney failure especially as they age and the all protein diet can really contribute to this.I would suggest that you also read my care of F1 page as many of the characteristics are the same or at least very similar.And here I am again trying to explain the impossible. What are they really like? If you are a Bengal person and you have or have had an F1 then you have a pretty good idea. But the truth is that the ALC is not just like an F1, they are special in their own right. They are loving, tremendously smart, bold, shy, faster than you could ever imagine and so much more. They need the same medical care as a regular cat. You do need to be careful that they do not develop bad eating habits such as a carpet etc. Some cannot have a cat tree as they like to eat carpet and can become impacted all too easily. I hope that this helps. They are wonderful, they are magnificent and they are just what they are. They are a wild animal that has been tamed. If you want the cat to remain tame then you need to completely isolate that cat from all other animals for a period of time so that they will bond with just you and not that other animal. Then you must continue to give them love and attention.
