The silver marbled tabby Bengal should exhibit a cool, sparkling silver-white ground color, overlaid with intense black horizontally flowing patterns with sharp contrast, distinct shapes and sharp edges to the markings when the cat is stretched, with a chaining look being preferred. These contrasting markings should be distinctly charcoal to pale-gray. There will be a minimum of warm tones, although a small degree of tarnishing is acceptable, especially along the spine, legs, muzzle and face. The base of the hair shafts will be lightly pigmented, preferably white. Paw pads and tail tip must be black, with nose leather brick red outlined in black. Eye color of green is preferable, although gold is acceptable.
