TICA Registered Bengal Breeders

WHY BUY FROM US?

1.    Our kittens are always TICA registered, have been expertly bred and have superb bloodlines. Therefore, when you buy from us, you will know you are buying a purebred Bengal kitten.

2.    Our cats and kittens live at home with us. They are never caged inside or outside.

3.    Before kittens leave us, they will have completed our rigorous, positive socialization program. They will get used to all sorts of different people, including young children, and will have become used to noise, such as doorbells, kitchen appliances, vacuum cleaners etc. They will be used to all the comings and goings of a busy household. They will be used to playing with toys and will be scratch post and litter trained. They will have travelled inside a cat carrier, in a car, and will have visited the vet at least twice. They will be able to form positive bonds with people, making their transition to their new homes as smooth and quick as possible. By the time they come to you, they will be intrepid, little explorers.

4.    All our breeding cats are genetically screened for both Progressive Retinal Atrophy Bengal (PRA Bengal) and Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency (PKdef), so we can guarantee that your kitten will not have these genetic diseases that run in some Bengal lines.

5.    All our breeding cats are tested negative for FIV and FeLV, so can not pass these serious infectious diseases onto your kitten.

6.    No cat will remain in our breeding program if found to have Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM). We responsibly screen for this regularly. Although, this of course, can not guarantee that your kitten will never develop heart disease in its entire lifetime (HCM affects all mammals), it will at least eliminate cats that screen positive from our breeding program.

7.    Our kittens are vaccinated for Feline Calicivirus, Feline Herpes, Feline Panleucopaenia at 9 and 12 weeks before they leave us.

8.    All our kittens are microchipped before they leave us, greatly increasing the chances of you being reunited with your pet should it be lost or stolen.

9.    We have a rigorous parasite protocol. All kittens receive a broad spectrum of parasite control whilst with us, covering for Coccidia, Giardia, Hookworm, Tapeworm and Roundworm. Our adults are regularly treated for all the above, as well as receiving monthly preventative treatment for fleas and mites. Additionally, we regularly test stool samples to make sure nothing escapes us. This is also how we can state that our cattery is Tritrichomonas Foetus clear.

10.    Hygiene is of paramount importance here and we take numerous steps to make sure that our cats and kittens are raised in an extremely hygienic environment. Our litter trays are scooped several times a day and disinfected several times a week. All food and water bowls are washed at 70 degrees twice daily. Floors are bleached daily with a 10% bleach solution and all cat bedding is washed often. Everyone removes shoes in our porch as this minimizes germs being brought into our home and hand washing is taken seriously.

11.    Our kittens never leave their mothers until they are at least 12 weeks old and fully vaccinated. This means that they are weaned naturally from mum and socialized with her and their littermates. Nursing must not end abruptly. This is not just about food, but about safety, communication and learning. It is cruel to end nursing too soon and causes stress and anxiety to the kittens. It is worth remembering that in the wild, a kitten would never leave its mum at 8 weeks old. It simply wouldn’t survive or be able to hunt for itself.

12.    Your kitten will have been thoroughly health checked by a vet at least twice by the time it leaves us.

13.    All kittens leave with four weeks complimentary Petplan health insurance.

14.    We are also available to answer your questions once you get your kitten home, or help you find the answers you need.
