I am a breeder of Bengal cats and Bengal kittens in Mn. Located in Milaca Minnesota . I've been a breeder of Bengal kittens now for 13 years and could not imagine life without these magnificent creatures. Bengal cats are a touch of the leopard, the beauty of the wild with the heart you would expect from any devoted family pet. Bengals are very intelligent and humorous creatures. People often ask me what is the difference between Bengals and your average cat. I dont think I could even put these cats in words you just must experience one for yourself and you will then know the uniqueness of what a Bengal really is. Once one of my babies leaves me to join your family I will be here for the duration of your Bengals life if you ever have questions, concerns or just want to talk Bengal talk and share your funny stories please dont hesitate to email, call or text me.
The Bengal cat is a descendant from cross-breeding domestic shorthairs and Asian Leopard cats. The ALC is a small wild cat of Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. The Leopard Cat has the widest geographic distribution of all felines. It can be found in forest areas throughout Indonesia, Philippines, Borneo, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, China and Taiwan. The Asian Leopard Cat also can be found in Korea, Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan. Their range of habitat is varied, and includes tropical forest, scrubland, pine forest, second-growth woodland, semi-desert, and agricultural regions, especially near water sources. There are eleven subspecies of Leopard Cat.
The first Bengal breeding program began in 1963 by Jean Mill .The Bengal was developed to produce some of the characteristics of the Asian Leopard Cat. Bengals are wild only in looks, not in personality. They come in a variety of colors and patterns including rosettes and marbled with background colors of brown which is usually a brown background with black markings, silver which is a white back ground and black markings, snow which is a creamy background with light chocolate markings and once in a while your will come across blue which is a mousey grey color and blacks.
Im asked alot do Bengals get along with other breeds of cats ? Do they get along with children and dogs also ? The answer is yes. Just like any other cat, if they are brought up with love and subject to these other things then they accept them just like any other part of the family.
Even though I am a Minnesota Bengal breeder I do ship in the United States, Alaska and Canada. Though it is much easier on the kitten if you can come and pick it up from my home , it is still totally safe to ship with the Airlines. I use Continental if at all possible. If you do live in a surounding state like Wisconsin, North and South Dakota, Iowa and Illinois I will drive a little ways to meet you, free of charge so you dont have to ship.
All cats / kittens sold as pets will be spayed/neutered before leaving our cattery OR be under a spay/neuter contract.to be altered no later then 5 months old.
If you are interested in breeding, please do your research . We will not sell breeding cats to anyone who does not show sufficient knowledge about the breed and good breeding practices and ample room.
There is a common misconception that Bengals are large cats. Not so, they range within the same size of a domestic house cat. Females generally range from 7-10 pounds and males from 9-12 pounds. However, it is not uncommon for a male to reach up to 14-18 pounds.
