How to choose?

Bringing home a kitten is a big deal! We want to make sure that you are able to make the best decision when it comes to choosing the right addition to your family. Here are some tips and suggestions to help make things easier.

While each and every kitten we produce is beautiful and special, narrowing down your options to which kitten best suits your family is a matter of personal choice.

  • Do you have a specific color or pattern preference? if so, be sure to choose the kitten that stands out to you or catches your eye. Everyone has different tastes, so choose one who suits yours!

  • Do you want a boy or girl? We have found that both boys and girls can be equally loving, affectionate, playful, and unique in their own personalities!  

  • Do you have other pets or playmates that your kitten will be able to interact and socialize with? Young growing kittens love to have lots of attention and playtime to keep them busy.

  • Considering adding 2 kittens to your family? That's great! Kittens love to grow up with their siblings! Unlike many puppies, kittens do very well growing up with their brothers and/or sisters, so don't  let the fear of "littermate syndrome" stop you!

  • Worried about distance? Afraid you live too far away? No worries! Our kittens are happy to travel! And we are happy to assist with all aspects of transportation and making travel arrangements.

  • All of our kittens are registered with TICA (The International Cat Association) so whichever kitten you choose, rest assured he or she will be registered and ready to transfer into your name.

Coming Home!

The big decision has been made! Here are some things to expect when you bring home your new kitten.

  • Your kitten will be fully litter box trained. We suggest using the same litter and type of litter box that we use in our cattery when kitten first comes home. This helps to avoid any confusion or unwanted elimination behaviors. Also make sure your kitten is familiar with the locations of any litter boxes that will be available to them.

  • Your kitten will be fully weaned and eating top quality dry kitten and wet food. We will provide a small supply of your kitten's current food. In the event you would like to switch your kitten to a different food, please do so gradually and after your kitten has had a chance to settle in to it's new surroundings. This slow transition can help prevent unwanted tummy troubles!

  • Our kittens also will come with a small care package of goodies, to help them transition into their new home.  Care packages may include a bed or blanket, toys, treats, and other fun stuff!

  • All of our kittens are raised in our home, so they will be accustomed to being handled by humans and everyday activities that take place inside a family home. Have other pets? No problem!  Our kittens have been learning how to live around gentle dogs, other adult cats, and the occasional farm bottle baby.  Plan on vacuuming sometime around your new kitten, no problem! Our kittens have been raised around all aspects of normal and sometimes noisy, household chores.

  • Your kitten will be spayed or neutered before they come home. They will also have 2 rounds of age appropriate vaccinations, have had a full schedule of deworming and will be microchipped before they come home. We also offer a generous health guarantee that applies to every kitten that comes out of our program (See below).

Our Health Guaraantee

We take great care and pride in the health of our cats. All of our adult breeding cats are fully health tested and clear of all major health issues currently tested for. We use the TICA approved Wisdom "Optimal Selection" feline genetic panel.  The Optimal Selection genetic panel, tests for all known and testable genetic conditions that affect cats, as well as specialty genetic testing specific to Bengals, including but not limited to PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy), PkDef (Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency), PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) and HCM.  We only keep adults in our breeding program who test clear for all known conditions, and we are happy to share those test results upon request.  For HCM (Hypertrophic CardioMyopathy ) screening, in addition to the genetic test thru Optimal Selection, we also have our adults tested via echocardiogram and cardiac ultrasound with a licensed cardiologist.

What does that mean? This means your kitten will have a 12 month guarantee to be clear from all genetic conditions which can affect Bengals.  For more detailed information and a full list of the genetic conditions we test for, please visit the Wisdom Optimal Selection website here :
