27/12/10 NO MORE BENGAL KITTENS:
Sadly the decision to no longer breed the Bengal has now been made, a heart wrenching time for us all. All our breeding cats have been desexed and not sold on to other breeders. Some will stay as pets and some who were suitable to be rehomed have been so.
The main reason is that so many Bengals are now available thru backyard breeders, which are much less than a quality bred Bengal you could purchase from a Registered Ethical Breeder, the breed is in high numbers in the Animal Shelters and rescue groups, which we also belong to, that are having great difficulty rehoming and saving these beautiful cats because so many are now being sold for a $$ value without the commitment to choosing the appropriate family and giving support to these families, by less than unethical breeders and back yarders who think there is a $$ in breeding these beautiful cats..
The Bengal is not suited to all cat families and so many people do not understand the needs or the nature of these cats. They are not like your Singapura who is so totally human orientated or the Devon Rex who is such a lover. The Bengal can be destructive, and does not always get along with other cats, having a very strong dominate nature. They can be aloof and be very demanding with wanting to go outdoors. The temperament is so hard to guarantee. The vast majority are not your lap cat or an overly affectionate cat, which is what we ourselves have found with working with this breed for nearly 8 years.
We have been lucky to be able to compare the Bengal with our other cat breeds, and we love the affectionate non territorial nature of the Singapura together with the smoochy low allergenic Devon Rex. These have temperaments we can guarantee
If your heart is still set on a Bengal, please do your homework, ring the Cat Associations, being FCCV & GCCF to name the two main ones here in Victoria, ask them about who they recommend. Visit the Cattery, see how they are raised and socialized. Ask to see the parents and if possible ask to speak to past kitten buyers. See more than one breeder.
Never purchase a "cheap" Bengal from the newspaper, pet shop or a noticeboard. Make sure the kitten is fully Vet checked, Microchipped, Vaccinated and desexed, and above all that you like the breeder and are more than pleased in the conditions and surroundings that the kitten has been raised in.
At the end of the day, your pet Bengal is a pet for many years to come as an inside only cat, be sure that this breed suits your circumstances and life style.
These are purely our own opinions after breeding the Bengal Cat and comparing them from kitten hood to adults with the Singapura and the Devon Rex Kittens and adults.
