Choosing the Right Breeder or Cattery
I know what an important decision it is to reserve or adopt a new kitten. Here are a few tips and things to consider to help you find the best breeder for you:
Are they local? – Finding a breeder as near to you as possible is always ideal – although I understand it’s not always possible with a kitten as rare as a Bengal.
If you can find a local breeder it will enable you to visit them (if permitted), and it just makes communications, collecting the kitten, and so on easier.
Check the paperwork – Buying a kitten is an emotional purchase, but there is some legal paperwork that shouldn’t be skipped.
Make sure you know what your rights are should something happen with the kitten after you take it home.
Meet the parents – You should always try and meet your prospective kitten’s parents before you make a decision.
Not only is it nice to see their parents, but you also want to be sure they’re in good health and well-treated.
Generally speaking, the best tip is to make decisions with a cool head and not be led by your heart if you see a cute kitten and fall in love with it!
What TICA and CFA Registered Means
Not all breeders will be TICA or CFA registered, and it’s certainly not a requirement. But it does demonstrate that they’re committed to certain high standards.
The International Cat Association (TICA) and The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) are organizations that register pedigree cats and breeders.
They also hold catteries to high standards and provide information on what kind of vaccinations, tests, and other checks breeders should be carrying out.
How Much Do Bengals Cost?
Like all pedigree exotic cat breeds, Bengals vary a lot in price depending on their traits and some other factors.
That said, looking at the price list for a number of breeders you can expect to pay something in the range of:
|Type of Bengal||Approximate Price|
You should be aware that it’s normal for breeders to ask for a large, non-refundable deposit.
This is to cover the costs associated with breeding and caring for the kitten, so make sure you’re 100% sure before making a decision.
Do Bengal Cats Make Good Family Pets?
I’m not just saying this, but Bengal cats are among the most family-friendly breeds of cat.
They make such good family pets because they are friendly, social, good with other pets and kids, and playful.
In fact, Bengals are much better suited to busy homes than they are quiet homes.
They’re large cats and have a lot of energy to burn off. So, the more people there are to play with them, the better.
You’ll need some good cat furniture – especially if you value your own furniture.
But apart from a bed (that cats never use) and some toys, there isn’t much to owning a Bengal – it’s the attention they thrive on.
Not many owners will allow them to go outside freely, so the more space you have indoors the better.
Bengals can also be trained to walk on a harness if you want to take them out and let them take in the smells and sounds of the outdoors.
If you’re looking for an interesting, unique, and sociable cat, you’ve found it in a Bengal, that’s much I’m sure of.
Do keep in mind that all breed information and profiles are general, every cat has their own personality!
