Some Guidelines when searching for your Bengal Cat or Bengal Kitten
These are the important questions to ask your Bengal breeder; ask these questions and put a check mark next to each one that the breeder does. If you do not buy a cat from Painted Cats it will still be helpful for you to have a list when you find a Bengal breeder. Bengals have more health problems than many of the other cat breeds and much testing is needed to ensure you get a healthy cat. If a breeder does not do these tests you risk getting a cat which will die early. If the breeder does not want to answer these questions, you should find another breeder. The Bengal cat price should not be your only consideration. You could spend thousands in veterinarian care and testing if you purchase from the wrong breeder.
*A health guarantee should never be a substitute for testing; what good is a health guarantee if your beloved pet dies because the breeder would not test the breeding cats? In most cases you will be offered a cat as a replacement, but how can a replacement take the place of your pet? As a rule you should buy from breeders who test for HCM, PK Deficiency, FeLV, PRA and who also have a consistent worming protocol. If you can check off each one of these things on this list, it is a good bet you will have a healthy Bengal.
All reputable breeders have a contract between the buyer and the seller of the kitten. When you get your Bengal you must realize that we have a large investment in your new kitten. The investment is not only monetary - a reputable breeder cares for kittens even after they are placed. Also when a breeder has a TICA registered cattery there are standards for health and cat care which must be adhered to.
The contract is a legal document which spells out how you must treat your Bengal, and what penalties apply if you violate the agreement. The contract also provides you with some important health guarantees.
