When picking out a kitten, there are many things to think about before you make the big pounce! You will need to take other household members and pets into consideration, as well as the amount of time you have to raise a kitten. The new addition to your family should also compliment your personality. Deciding on a Bengal kitten will definitely enhance your unique qualities! Here are some tips for choosing your new Bengal:
Gender – This is strictly up to you! There is no real definitive difference after they have been spayed or neutered.
Picking “The One” – Choosing to go through a reputable Bengal breeder is the best way to ensure your new friend has been purr-fectly cared for and is in good health. From there, you should observe the litter. Witnessing how the kittens interact with people and their siblings is important to consider. Pick them up and see how they respond. A kitten that hisses and squirms might indicate behavioral problems. This could indicate that they might have a hard time adjusting to its new family and home.
Cost – Bengals are a bit more expensive than a regular kitten, but that comes with the territory of owning a beautiful and unique breed! The cost of the kitten itself also depends on the type of Bengal. There are typically three types of breeds including Pet Quality Bengals, Breeder Quality Bengals, and Show Quality Bengals.
Shopping for your new Bengal is a job in itself but you won’t be disappointed. In fact, you might have a hard time choosing just one! Check out the latest litter from Summerbrees and Gangster, born April 21, 2013.
