Breed Council Change Considerations:

NOTE:  Rose highlight indicates a "Strike-through" of wording in the Bengal Breed standard to be removed.  Gold highlight indicates an "underline" which is new wording being proposed to add in to the Bengal Standard.

1.  See "SEAL SILVER LYNX POINT" -  We are suggested we combine 3 color sections of Seal Silver Lynx Point, Seal Silver Mink and Seal Silver Sepia.

COMBINED WITHIN PROPOSAL #62 ON THE SEAL SILVER LYNX POINT WEBPAGE.  Ballot results:  41 yes, 28 no - 69 voters need 41 "yes" votes to pass.  Did not pass by 1 vote.

2.  If Proposal #62 doesn't pass, we need to add in tail tip color as it is currently not addressed.

TAIL TIP:   Dark Brown to Black.

Rationale:  Tail tip is not addressed.


PROPOSAL #65 on the proposed 2019 Ballot.  Ballot Results:  31 yes, 37 no - 68 voters needs 41 votes to pass.  Did not pass.
