The beautiful Bengal is not only unique but an extremely entertaining breed of kitten. These felines make a great companion and are a wonderful addition to your household. Here are a few tips on how to care for your new Bengal kitten:
Feeding your Feline – We advise feeding your cat in moderation. They enjoy all natural dry and wet food; however, occasional dinner scraps won’t do your kitten any harm. Also, you should make sure that whether it’s from a dish or the faucet, your Bengal gets enough water. Wild Bengals are used to drinking out of streams so your cat will love to drink running water from the tub!
Litter Box Living – Bengals love their privacy so when purchasing your kitten’s litter box, make sure it has high edging. In fact, the higher the better! Bengals are able to jump up to three times their height so don’t worry about them struggling to get inside. If the edge is real low, Bengals tend to “leak” outside of the box which isn’t a fun clean-up for you.
Fabulous Fur – Bengals love to have their hair brushed! By brushing your Bengal, you are helping them get rid of their shedding fur and preventing their fur from getting matted. When it comes to bathing your kitten, make sure you use cat safe shampoo. Use warm water and shower them all over but be careful not to get anything in their eyes. After their bath, towel dry them in the direction of their fur. Then, let them take care of the rest. They will finish bathing themselves for hours!
Feathers, Lasers, Mice … oh my! – Playing with your kitten is extremely important. They love to mess around and are very entertaining. They enjoy anything that moves. Bengals love to chase laser pointers around the floor or a feather toy that is attached to a string. They’ll pounce at these objects as if they were alive – which is also very fun for you to watch! You can also throw a catnip mouse across the room and watch your Bengal bring it back to you proudly!
