Is my kitten part bengal? He is such a character and very vocal!

Possibly, his markings look vaguely rosetted.

He looks long haired too.

He is a long hair and his coat is so shiny. He's not like any cat I've had before in his personality smile

Anyone with bengals have an opinion? smile

We had a Bengal they have very short hair that feels like a mink coat, they also look like gold glitters been scattered through their fur. Ours was never any more vocal than an average cat. They come in an wide range of tabby type marking.
I think it's often easy to assume your cat has some sort of pedigree in i, perhaps because many dogs are usually a recognisable mixture of a couple of breeds. But we recently lost a little ginger and white cat my sister in law was convinced it was a Turkish Van (she has one) and endlessly sent my photos of Turkish Vans but we actually knew her father was a scruffy black and white feral cat and her mother a farm tortie!

I posted something very similar a while ago.

Basically you will never know.

Mines tabby, vocal and loves cuddling me when I have wet hair.

Maybe there is a thing called tabbytude?

'Cattitude' has been around forever long before the Bengals came along and some moggies have it in spades. He looks like a beautiful traditional tabby and white many of them have always been big, vocal cats particularly the males.
In my area there is a strain of big tabby male cats (6.5kgs is normal for them) who are incredibly vocal and particularly social their other feature the lets us know they are from the same moggy strain - they are polydactyl.
