Kittens are raised inside the house and get a lot of attention each day. They stay with their mother till they leave to the new owner at the age of 13 – 16 weeks. On the age of 8-9 weeks they receive their first vaccination and 3-4 weeks later the 2nd vaccination. The kittens will be dewormed using “No Worm Pasta” or Milbemax, Panacur and Spartrix. The kittens receive an ID chip, EU passport and TICA or CaT (Cats and Tulips) pedigree; kittens which will be shipped outside the Netherlands receive also a rabïes vaccination. All kittens will be sold with a contract and kittens sold as pets will be neutered/spayed before they leave to their new home !
Kittens are evaluated at the age of 6-8 weeks and then sold as pets, breeder and/or show quality kittens; till this time all kittens are ON HOLD. Visiting of the kittens is possible from week 8 after birth. In case you are interested in a specific kitten, a deposit of €500 (pet kittens) or €1000 (breeder/show kittens) is requested. This deposit is non-refundable. We have the right to refuse to sell a kitten to any individual if we feel they do not meet our standards. The kittens can leave to their new home when they meet some criteria like at least 1500 grams of weight, healthy and paid in full !
Estimated price for a bengal kitten as pet will be from 1150 to 1500 euro (including neutering/spaying); breeder kittens start around 3000 euro and up; Breeder/show kittens price on request !
Since August 2015 I stopped working with a waitinglist. In case you are interested in a specific combination, please inform about the possibilities but no reservations can be made in advance for a kitten. First we need to look how many are born and of which sex they are 😉 All kittens will be offered on my website and on Facebook (Cattery Bengalivo). For more information regarding the exact prices of each kitten, please contact me by e-mail !
|AVAILABLE||Please feel free to enquire about this kitten. It will be on a first come, first served basis. We do not hold kittens without a deposit.|
|PENDING||Means that someone is sending a deposit but it has not arrived yet – so you may enquire as the kitten may still become available|
|RESERVED||Means that someone has put down the required deposit and this kitten is not available.|
|ON HOLD||Means that we are holding this kitten for further evaluation (till a specific age). However, feel free to enquire as it may become available. If a specific date is mentioned, the kitten will not be available before end of that date !|
|KEEPER||Means that we are keeping this kitten for our own breeding program.|
|SHOW QUALITY||Show quality bengals display championship characteristics, and are considered the highest quality of Bengal cat. Championship characteristics for all breeds of cat are defined by TICA. However, we can not predict show successes !|
|BREED QUALITY||Breed quality bengals display some championship characteristics, but usually not enough to qualify as a show cat, but exhibit characteristics that are important for breeding (temperament, colour variation, or very distinct markings, or good instinct in females for raising kittens).|
|PET QUALITY||Pet quality bengals are not show quality, but are bred to exhibit characteristics (good disposition, temperament, and healthy) that will make them great pets in a home of cat enthusiasts after being spayed or neutered. However, those cats have the looks that could be similar to show cats 😉|
