BENGAL KITTEN MENU
A Brief Overview About the Process of Purchasing One
of Our Bengal Kittens
Let's start with the most crucial points......
Our kittens are sold as pets only -- that means
Kittens must be altered by 6 months old and proof of
alteration is to be provided as specified on the Sales
Our kittens and cats are to be kept indoors only.
No declawing. I will show you how to trim your
It deeply saddens me that I now feel the need to
include this particular note here. I have been
extremely grateful for the amazing and wonderful
customers I have had over my 18 years of pouring my
heart into each and every kitten and cat in my
breeding program. I take my responsibility to my cats
and kittens, as well as to the Bengal Breed as a
whole, VERY seriously. I work 12 to 15 hour days, 7
days a week, 365 days a year and invest basically all
of my money to make sure I am raising happy, healthy,
top of the line Bengals.
I am sending a piece of my heart and soul home with my
customers, and I expect my customers to take their
responsibility to their new kitten just as seriously
as I do. I expect that when a customer signs a Sales
Contract to spay/neuter a kitten by 6 months old, that
the customer is saying that they are will have their
new kitten spayed or neutered by the specified date,
will obtain a receipt for the procedure or certificate
of alteration with the required information, and will
send a copy of the paper to me by the date on
Very recently, a couple customers have caused me great
disappointment and outrage, frankly, that they have
presented themselves in one light and have lied about
their intention to purchase a kitten sold as a pet, at
a pet price, agreeing through emails, conversation,
and my Sales Contract that they will alter the kitten
by six months old. They then proceeded to not alter
the kitten. Starting a breeding program through lying
and deceit is pretty pathetic in my book. If you do
not intend to follow through on your word on my Sales
Contract, or if you think you might not be capable of
that, then I ask that you please look for a kitten
elsewhere. I intend to have the best, most loving, and
honest homes for my kittens.
Have been speaking to my vet for a couple months about
doing early spay/neuter for me, which will make all
this a non issue!
Now on to the details.....
Deposit: I prefer
to wait until the kittens are closer to 5 to 6 weeks old
before showing them to those interested in possibly placing a
deposit. You are welcome to call or email to
schedule an appointment to meet the kittens, once they
approach the 5 to 6 week old range. If you
like one of the kittens at that time, a $300 to $500 deposit
will hold the kitten until they are ready to join
their new families, which is around 11 to 12 weeks
Typical price for one of my super special pet kittens
runs around $1000. Some of the extraordinary
kittens will be closer to $1500 to $1600. The price
for a top quality kitten with breeding rights is about
double the pet price. A "pet" kitten means that the kitten
may not be bred, and
must be spayed or neutered by 6 months old, per my
Breeder, Show, or Pet Kitten: My goal for the
past 18 years has been to raise top show quality Bengals for
pet homes. Although many of my kittens are breeder and/or show
quality, I just about always prefer to place them as pets only to loving homes,
where I can rest assured that they will be properly spoiled.
Always more than fair prices. That the kittens be loved,
cherished, and well cared for is my number one priority.

please scroll all the way down this Kitten Menu for
more information and considerations about
purchasing/adopting our Bengal kittens, including a

I so very much appreciate your interest and your
inquiries about our Bengal kittens and retired adults!
I truly and sincerely want to write back to all of
you! Because I am not able to spend all day, everyday, on the
computer, sometimes it can be extremely challenging to reply
to all my emails. I do my very best, but if I don't
get back to you, please do not take it personally.
As we want the very best homes for our kittens,
preference will be given to the emails that include
some information about the type of home you will
provide for a kitten or cat and indicates that you
have read a reasonable amount of the info provided on
my website. For instance:
Who lives in you
home, i.e. single, married, roommates, children, etc.
Know that cats
will be cats. They naturally will want to jump on top
of high places! They may knock something over. They
may snag a fabric. They will want to jump on the
kitchen counter. If this will be a source of
irritation for you or a family member, then perhaps
look into a different type of pet.
My cats are to
be kept indoors only. Customers who have let
their cats outside, despite signing my contract,
invariable call that their cat was stolen, killed by a
predator, hit by a car, or just disappeared. Keeping
cats indoors is not only for the safety of the cat,
but protects wildlife as well. Outdoor
domestic cats are responsible for at least 63
extinctions of mammals, birds, and reptiles.
Outdoor domestic cats are an invasive species. There
are a great number of examples of "catios", if you
want to let your cat have some time outside in a
protected environment. Feel free to ask me about
those. I have lots of photos I've taken, from
inexpensive catios to deluxe set ups.
Feel free to write back again, especially around the
time I announce that I am ready to start placing the
kittens. Thank you so much for your understanding!
