Buying a live animal has no guarantees. No one can guarantee any animal will not become sick or develop a disease. Therefore, allowing any pet into your heart is a risk. The best guarantee against health is for you to meet me and see for yourself my love for my animals. I don't want to see them sick, so I take good care of them. I don't want people who buy kittens from me to suffer untimely loss, so I do what I can to ensure that I sell healthy kittens.
I've been breeding Bengals for over ten years. The
only genetic disease, I've uncovered has been HCM. When I first learned of HCM
in one of my kittens, I immediately began testing my cats, and I
continue to test today. More recently, a genetic PK -
Deficiency test has become available. I have screened all the
cats I am currently breeding, and, thankfully, none of my cats have
or carry the genetic marker for PK - Deficiency.
The bottom line - illness, suffering, and death are not
enjoyable experiences, and I couldn't breed cats for over ten years
if I weren't finding joy in it. I utilize all resources
available to me through my regular vet, specialist vets, and genetic
testing to bring only the healthiest Bengal kittens into this world.
like health, temperament is not a guarantee. Temperaments
change and develop as the kittens get older. By eight weeks, I
should have a good idea of what I think the temperament of a kitten
will be, and I will give you an honest assessment of the kitten'
If the kitten is going to be a one-person cat, I will let you know. If
it is going to like water, I will let you know. If
it is going to be a talker, I will let you know.
The key is I want you to be happy with your kitten because I
want my kittens to live in happy homes. All of my kittens are
raised in my home, and once they are litter box trained, they have
free range of my house. I have a busy home with two
elementary-school-aged children and three dogs. The kittens
are exposed to all of this stimuli since birth, so I develop a good
idea of what type of home they need.
The bottom line - you'll get an honest temperament assessment
from me before you purchase a kitten, so you will know what to
expect when you bring your kitten home. If it sounds like a
