Why You Should Own a Bengal

why own a bengalBengal cats can be a great addition to any family but, are they right for your family and why should you own one?

There are a lot of highly sought after qualities that Bengals have that other cats simply cannot possess because of their bloodlines and their upbringing. They do have bloodlines with wild cats and this gives them different characteristics that extreme charming and playful.

Being playful is the first thing you will notice about a Bengal. They are not the cat that will lie around all day and hide from your guests. You will appreciate how social they are with your guests and how much they want to be the center of attention.

They are also extremely intelligent and can pick up on tricks and tips you have given them in the past when greeting and playing with your friends and family. You will never have a dull moment with a Bengal cat hanging around.

Another extremely sought after quality is their healthy nature and low maintenance lifestyle. Bengals are very good at grooming themselves and they have shorter fur so they can keep their hygiene under control. You will need to brush them and bathe them regularly but they do not require specialized care.

They are also healthy cats; they appear to have immunity to feline leukemia. This can be extremely expensive and sad to treat but good news is due to the ancestry of the Asian leopard they seem to be immune.

Because they are active cats you will not have to worry about them getting feline obesity or other related health problems. In our book Bengals are the all-around winner for the cats everyone should have.

Destiny’s Bengals Welcomes 4 New Bengal Kittens!

 

Born January 5th, 2014

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.

Jingle Kitty Bells

Bengal kittens love to hear bells, and what better way to celebrate the holiday than including Jingle bells for toys and to attach to collars!

Health Benefits of Owning a Cat: 5 Reasons to Buy A Bengal Kitten

Bengal KittensResearch shows that there are in fact health benefits of owning a cat. Here is our list of the top five health benefits of having a cat:

1. Natural Mood Enhancers– After spending just a few minutes with a cat, you immediately begin to feel less anxious and stressed

2. Good for your Heart– Research shows that owning a cat can actually protect your heart. One study revealed that people who never owned a cat “were 40% more likely to die of a heart attack than those who had.”

3. Help Fight Depression– Pets give unconditional love better than anyone or anything, which is one reason therapists have prescribed pets as a “way of dealing with and recovering from depression.”

4. Asthma Prevention– Research shows that infants in homes with cats “were significantly less likely to develop asthma as they got older.”

5. Fewer Strokes among Cat Owners– Studies show “cat owners have fewer strokes than people who don’t own cats.” There is speculation this may be due to the idea that cats have a calming effect on people, more so than other animals.

For us here at Destiny Bengals, this research just reinforces how much we love cats. Cats are not only wonderful pets to have around, but the health benefits of this creature are truly amazing. These are just a few reasons to buy a kitten, and there is no kitten cuter than an exotic Bengal kitten.

Just this week, Destiny Bengals welcomed two new Bengal kitten litters to the family! Both litters were born on Monday, January 21, 2013.

Gangster has once again proven to be a stud, fathering both litters. Our sweet mothers Sunrise and Autumn, each gave birth to three spotted kittens.

Please contact Destiny Bengals for information about our kittens for sale. We also have one kitten left from the litter of SummerBrees and Gangster.

Bengal Kitten Stud

If you are unfamiliar with the Bengal cat breed, Bengal cats are “a hybrid breed of domestic cat. Bengals result from crossing a domestic feline with an Asian leopard cat.” Although their name and wild appearance portray a different picture, their temperament is actually quite gentle.
