Are you aware of and up to the responsibilities of being a cat owner?
- This cat will be part of your family for 10-20 years. There is a lot of work and commitment involved. Are you ready for it?
- Litter boxes, trimming nails, vomit, hair balls and diarrhea, visits to the veterinarian. It’s not all fun and games.
- The price of purchasing a Pure Bred Cat is just the beginning. Food, litter, toys, treats, veterinarian visits, and insurance are just some of the things you have to be prepared to pay for.
Outdoor or Indoor Cat?
- An indoor cat can live 17-20 years while an outdoor cat live on average 2-5 years.
- Outdoor cats catch many more diseases (FeLV and FIV being common).
- Outdoor cats can get into fights, hit by cars or killed when they drink poison like antifreeze.
- Pure bred cats can easily be stolen – Your expensive exotic cat could easily end up as someone else’s exotic cat.
- If you really want your cat to go outdoors, we recommend you build a secure outdoor enclosure or walk them on a harness and leash.
What will you feed your cat?
- Dry food has been long suspected to cause urinary tract issues and diabetes. This poor diet leads to dehydrated cats. More Info Here
- We want to see our cats live long, happy and healthy lives and diet is a big part of this.
Does the Bengal breed fit your lifestyle?
- Purebred cats tend to have personality traits that are inherent in the breed.
- Bengals are active, human loving cats. Their way of bonding is through play.
- They want attention and are energetic.
- They are not lap cats and don’t sit quietly on the sofa arm all evening. If you want a placid cat, a Bengal is not for you. That isn’t to say a Bengal won’t sit in your lap; just don’t expect them to sit all night!
- If you plan to leave a single Bengal alone for long periods it’s going to make for a sad, problematic cat.
