Haha. I just call it a jungle cat because I'm a goofball.
The breed is actually called Bengal. It is a cross between an Asian Leopard Cat(which is actually a jungle cat) and a domestic. Full grown they are about the same size as a normal cat, but they have exotic markings and don't shed much.
I think in order for them to be legal to keep as pets they have to be at least 4 generations removed from the Asian Leopard Cat. Some lady started breeding them as pets back in the day to discourage people from making coats and shit with their pelts.
I've never owned one, but they are said to be very social, active, love water, high places, some like to walk on leashes, and go for rides in the car like a dog would.
