I would say some possible ancestry to a Bengal there. For sure a lookalike. Without papers he would be considered a domestic short hair. Beautiful cat regardless!

Yup! I've been telling vet and insurance company that he's domestic short-hair.
I will love him no matter what.
But wanted to ...see if thats why he has crazy energy

No problem. Savannah's and Bengals are known to be high energy so who knows. If he's a kitten it could just be kitten energy. I don't know how cat insurance works but if a thorough bred is higher to insure, they can't classify him a purebred without papers. How did you come across him? Was he a rescue? He looks happy and relaxed in those pics!

I think his coloring would be called a brown classic tabby which is not uncommon in the domestic population but, with his head shape and body along with the coloration he does look alot like a Bengal. Welcome to the site by the way! It's a great place for cat info!

Thank you! Lots of info especially about raw cat food which I want to try when I have room some day.

Looks like a classic tabby DSH to me, I don't see any Bengal traits in that cat. People are often misled by marbled pattern because they see Bengals in that pattern also but it's been around in cats thousands of years before Bengals were ever a thing and is common in domestics and many breeds alike.
