One of the most enjoyable things new or perspective pet parents can do is to set aside time to bond with their new Bengal kitten.
This is a photo of our Bengal kitten Lola. She was selected by a very nice family when she was 6 weeks old and is currently on hold. Our Bengal kittens stay with us until they are 12 weeks old.
If schedules and distance allow it, why not start the bonding process before the kitten goes home with the new pet parent?
When the perspective pet parent is interested, we sometimes schedule kitten visitation between the 7th and 11th weeks of age while the kitten is on hold. This gives the kitten and pet parent a chance to get to know each other before the kitten is placed. The kitten will get used to interacting with the new person and the new pet parent can become comfortable handling, feeding and playing with the kitten. It also gives an opportunity for the new pet parent to ask questions they may not have thought of before and/or take photos or video of the kitten at a younger age so they don’t miss that growing stage of the kitten’s life. This can make the transition easier for the kitten and new pet parent by reducing stress on them both.
