Hey Bengals...I am an 18 lb. alley cat with very distinct markings, could I be a bengal?

To me, you look more like a Tabby, but check for yourself...there are lots of pics of Bengals on the internet. I've also heard (although I can't vouch for the validity of it, or the wisdom of trying it) that if you shave a patch of a Bengal's fur, there will be spots on their skin where there were spots on their fur, and apparently not on a Tabby's. But, again, to me you look like a lovely red Tabby!
