SummerBreeze and Gangster had a litter earlier this month. On January 5th, we welcomed four new spotted kittens of high quality. When you bring home your new Bengal kitty, be sure to follow our blog for helpful tips and great ideas for spoiling your Bengal cat.
One of the first things you’ll want to do for your Bengal kitten is give it a place to run and jump free. A great idea is to build a few condos for your Bengal kitty.
How to Build a Bengal Cat Condo
Your Bengal kitten will love to scratch (at things they’re supposed to scratch), hide, climb, and conquer tower after tower in your home. To a Bengal cat, a “tower” could be anything from a TV stand to the fridge; Bengal cats love to climb on things. Many kitten owners will purchase a pre-fabricated cat condo, which is fine.
However, your Bengal kitten deserves to be a little spoiled when it comes to having a place to call his own. Bengal cats are smart, which means they get bored of the bland and uninteresting quite quickly. Instead of purchasing a cat condo that your Bengal cat might lose interest in, consider learning how to make varying condos. This way, you can alternate the different condos for your Bengal cat (or cats), providing the ultimate excitement and happiness.
eHow.com has two great tutorials for building a condo for your Bengal kitten. The first, How to Build a Cat Condo, shows you how to do it using carpet tubes and a drill. This is a great option for anyone who is handy with tools or might be familiar with fun DIY projects. The second tutorial, found here, shows you how to make a cat condo out of cardboard. It’s no secret that Bengal cats love cardboard boxes above all else, so this is the perfect, yet inexpensive and easy, way to make a secret cove for your Bengal Kitty.
Whichever style you choose, remember to make several styles, perhaps two or three. This way, you can replace them as your Bengal cat begins to lose interest. After a few weeks, you can re-introduce this condo to your Bengal kitten, and the excitement will happen all over again.
