Kharistan Bengals Anderson, Indiana
The look is wildly exotic, but totally domesticated. At Kharistan Bengals we breed early generation (EG) through SBTs. You will find all colors here, but we mainly breed for silvers and charcoals. All Bengals come with a two year genetic health guarantee.
The Early Generation Bengal cat
Early Generation (EG) or F1-F3 Bengal cats. Early generation Bengals are 1-3 generations removed from the Asian Leopard Cat (ALC). Early generation Bengals must be bottle fed, and handled often. It is said that there is no stronger bond than the bond of an F1, 2, or 3 Bengal. Buyers of these Bengal cats should do their research carefully because it is difficult for the EG Bengal to be re-homed. Breeders may also tell buyers that the EG Bengal will be more likely to bond with one person, than a family
Advice to Bengal kitten buyers:
When you approach a Bengal breeder about their Bengal kittens do not lead with the question; "what is the Bengal cat price?" It is always best to tell the breeder about yourself. Or you could tell the breeder what it is about the breeder's Bengal kittens that got you interested.
The EG Registration
Bengal cats are considered domestic when they are at least F4: meaning four generations from the Asian Leopard Cat (ALC). In The International Cat Association (TICA) an F4 Bengal can be shown.
The first filial generation is commonly know as F1. This is the first crossing of two separate species to create a hybrid. In Bengals, an F1 is most often the result of breeding a male ALC to a female Bengal.
The second filial generation is commonly know as F2. All F2 Bengals are the offspring of F1 Bengals. In Bengals, an F2 is most often the result of breeding a female F1 Bengal to a male SBT Bengal . This is because nearly all early generation males are sterile.
The third filial generation is commonly know as F3. All F3 Bengals are the offspring of F2 Bengals. In Bengals, an F3 is most often the result of breeding a female F2 Bengal to a male SBT Bengal, as the majority of males are still sterile at this generation.
The fourth filial generation and beyond commonly known as a Bengal cat or Stud Book Tradition (or SBT). It means that all cats beyond four generations are purebred Bengals and they are not first, second, or third filial generation. A majority of F4 males are presumed to be sterile as well.
