Responsible Breeders

From the beginning, our goal has always been to be responsible breeders of these exquisite animals.  Responsible breeding includes (but is not limited to):

A.  We screen potential buyers to find good homes for each kitten born to our cats.  We reserve the right to choose which homes our Bengals are placed in.

B.  All of our breeding cats (or their parents) have been tested for HCM, PKD, FeLV and FIV with negative results.

C.  All kittens are taken to our veterinarian and receive their initial health check, vaccines and deworming. Before leaving us, they also receive a second veterinarian health check and their booster vaccinations with deworming.

D.  Deliberate efforts not to contribute to pet over-population.  All pet quality kittens are spayed/neutered before going to their new homes.  This ensures they recover well from their surgeries and prevents accidental breeding that would result in unwanted kittens that could end up in homeless pet shelters.

E.  We rescue our own cats.  We sell our Bengal kittens using contracts.  Our kitten Buyer Purchase Contract includes a statement that if our kitten buyers find that they can no longer provide a good home for our kitten and all other efforts by the buyer to re-home them have failed, we will take them back (no refund or replacement is appropriate) and will find placement for them rather than have them ever be homeless or placed in any shelter.

F.  We support our local pet shelters.  We are not affiliated with any specific pet shelter and no pet shelter is authorized to use our name or photos of our cats.  However, we encourage inexperienced cat owners to visit their local pet shelter to adopt.  Due to the lineage of the Bengal breed, one of the qualities we look for in perspective Bengal parents is experience with cats and other pets.
