CHOOSING A KITTEN

In terms of quality - as Bengals have now been bred successfully for several years in the UK the quality of most F4 cats and beyond (from reputable breeders) is excellent - in fact they are far more likely to be spectacular examples of the breed than the lower generation kittens as there is much greater variation in the quality of lower generation cats. Undoubtedly the keeping and use of lower generation cats  has an occasional place in breeding programmes to introduce new genetic lines in the short term but as household pets they really aren't a feasible option.

The first consideration when choosing a kitten is whether you just want your kitten as a beautiful and exotic looking family pet or whether you intend to show or breed your cat in the future. If you are looking for a family pet then the two most important considerations when viewing kittens will be temperament and health.

 

Generally Bengal kittens are very playful and love fuss and attention, however, don’t expect them to enjoy being picked up and cuddled by strangers! Watch them carefully to see their different personalities and try to choose one that suits your expectations.

 

When looking for a kitten for showing or breeding always ask the breeder to point out the good and bad points of the kittens you are considering. The perfect Cat, irrespective of breed, has never been bred (nor will it ever be) and there is room for improvement on even the most exceptional kittens.

How Much does a kitten Cost? Our Bengal prices start at £350 for a pet Marble (£450 for a spotted rosetted) and around £850 for a breeding queen. Future studs start at around £1000

You often come across Bengals which are cheaper, but you certainly get what you pay for! There are still lots of very poor quality Bengal cats with grey fuzzy ticked coats around, or coats that fade considerably over time . Also, if you buy a Bengal without registration papers it is very likely the cat isn't a Bengal at all!

All our Kittens are Registered with the GCCF or TICA, Vaccinated, Insured, vet checked twice and at least 13 weeks old before they are allowed to leave for their new homes.

Low Generation or Foundation Kittens

From time to time you may see for sale F1, F2 or F3 kittens. These numbers refer to how many generations the kitten is removed from the Asian Leopard Cat. We would not advise anyone to buy these early (F1, F2 or F3) generation Bengals as pets.  You will also need a Wild Animal License to legally own an F1 or F2. Although there are always individual exceptions they cannot be guaranteed to be fully domesticated and are often nervous, shy and retiring, may not be reliable using litter trays and will not make good pets in the home.
