The Bengal cats’ temperament depends on their pedigree, the environment they live in and how they are brought up. Generally purebred Bengals are very social, intelligent and playful. They like to be around people and children, snuggle under blankets and have the largest vocal range of any domesticated cat. They love to play fetch and will keep themselves entertained with just about anything. Bengals also love water and will drink out of the faucet, join you in the shower or play with the bubbles as you’re doing the dishes. If you decide to buy a Bengal cat they will keep you entertained with a smile on your face for years to come.
Yes, but saying Bengals are hypoallergenic only means that they have less allergens than most cats. Everyone's allergies are different and every cat is different. I encourage people to make an appointment and spend 30 minutes (or more) with our cats to see how you react. As funny as it sounds, you should vigorously pet and play with the cats, rub your face in their fur or even get them to lightly scratch you if that is what it will take to get you to normally react. Always remember, it is important to test your allergies with an adult Bengal as many people do not react to kittens. With that said, over 80% of people that I have tested (with cat allergies) have not had a reaction to my Bengal cats.
All Bengals are different and the environment Bengal kittens are socialization in at an early age plays a role. We raise and maintain a cage free environment. All of our Bengals are used to being picked up, carried around and have been well socialized so they usually do very well with young children. Bengals are great family pets!
Yes, Bengals are very social animals and they get along very well with most cats and dogs. In fact, many people that purchase one Bengal kitten decide to purchase another one at some point or add another active pet to their home because Bengals are happiest in an active household and don’t like to be left alone for long periods.
Bengal are usually the size of a typical house cat, however the can also run a little larger. Bengals are very long in the body and very muscular cats. We feed our Bengals a healthy diet with the best supplements to produce Bengals on the larger side. Our full grown females will are about 10-14 lbs. on average and our males are about 14-18 lbs. on average. There is always the possibility of them being bigger or smaller.
No, Bengals do not specifically require a special diet. But with that being said, the best diet for all cats is a raw diet. Cats are obligate carnivores, meaning they are not able to digest grains, fruits, or vegetables well. When fed commercial dry cat food or a canned diet cats can become fat and unhealthy. I like to relate a commercial cat food diet to eating fast-food every day, it will keep you alive but it is not very healthy and will most likely get fat.
Below are some great resources regarding feline nutrition.
Our Bengals vary in price according to their quality, color and what they will be used for. Look at our Bengal Pricing page for more information.
The most likely the answer to that question is no as we normally have a wait-list. However, we do breed for several different colors, patterns and markings which range in popularity. Please contact us to get a better idea of how long it might take to get the Bengal you have been dreaming about. I would also like to add that purchasing a Bengal kitten is like adding someone to your family and if you are seriously interested in buying a purebred Bengal kitten it is well worth the wait.
I require a non-refundable deposit to be added to my wait-list. I also require your mailing address, personal phone number and email address for my records.
All of our Bengals are registered with TICA (The International Cat Association) and all of our litters are registered. This proves that they are Purebred Bengal cats and that I have breeding rights to produce kittens.
We do lots of testing on our adult breeding Bengals to ensure they are in top condition for breeding. We are responsible breeders and our kittens get all of their vaccinations and are dewormed several times to ensure they are coming to you healthy. We give a lifetime health guarantee for congenital health defects. I also provide support after you buy your kitten if you have any questions at all I am here to answer them or help you get the answers you’re looking for.
If you are purchasing a Bengal from a "breeder" that does not have TICA registered Bengals, there is no guarantee that they are even 100% Bengal. In fact, they are probably not! These breeders are called "Backyard Breeders" and they are more concerned with making money than they are about the purity, health and well being of the kittens they produce. Their kittens will grow up to have poor clarity in their markings, physical qualities very unbecoming for Bengals and personality quirks that don’t match the Bengal breed. Unfortunately these breeders are not concerned with improving the breed and producing top quality Bengals.
When purchasing a purebred Bengal… you really get what you pay for!
If you're going to spend money and invest your heart into a Bengal that will be a part of your family for the next 15-18 years you want to be sure to buy a documented TICA purebred Bengal.
If you are purchasing a Bengal from a "breeder" that does not have TICA registered Bengals, there is no guarantee that they are even 100% Bengal. Bengal cats have distinctly different social personalities when compared to other breeds. Many people who purchase Bengals cats want an exotic looking pet with a dog-like personality and superior intelligence.
A “Bengal” that is not TICA registered may not be a Bengal cat, it may not have the traditional Bengal cat personality or it may have an altered personality with negative or aggressive personality treats. In addition, the cat may have unconventional coloring, patterning and unforeseen health problems.
What is TICA (The International Cat Association)? TICA is the he world's largest genetic registry of pedigreed cats, and the world's largest registry of household pets.
TICA follows a strict code of ethical laws that its members must adhere to. These laws make sure that ethical breeding is being practiced and protects the rights of the sellers and the buyers. Breeders that are found in violation of these laws can be kicked out of TICA.
A registered TICA Bengal cat has documentation of all pedigree documentation to its original ALC mating which guarantees the cat as a purebred. To be a legal purebred Bengal it must be TICA registered.
- Generally, you get what you pay for. There may be a reason for that lower cost you don’t see.
- Breeding Bengals may be of lower quality and lack the vivid markings creating the “wow” factor
- May come from a kitty mill and caged most of their lives with minimal human involvement
- May not be purebred TICA registered and with the documented pedigree to back it up
- Shortcuts may have been taken to save time and expense that will have an impact later in life that you don't foresee
- Health guarantee may be non-existent or relatively short compared to the lifetime of a Bengal
- Buyer is still responsible for the remaining series of vaccinations
- Breeders may not have undergone health tests or genetic testing
- Breeders whose sole income rely on Breeding have profit as a bottom line
- It is never good to encourage irresponsible breeders as they will continue their practices
