Question. Are you a current member of any breed clubs and/or associations?
Question. Do you adhere to the recommended breeding age, litter frequency and retirement age for your breed?
Question. Do you health test in accordance with the current standards and recommended guidelines for your breed? This includes genetic testing, and having sensible, sustainable breeding strategies in place to promote the health of your cats and kittens.
My queens have only one litter a year and are not over-bred. Annual vaccinations and regular vet checks are conducted.
Kittens and older cats are only feed quality foods as a healthy cat is a happy cat!
Question. Do you ensure that your kittens are appropriately socialised.
Kittens are handled at birth and have lots of human interaction as they grow and develop. They become used to house noises and have lots of interactive toys and climbing apparatus. Kittens when old enough, meet our gentle German Shepherd who has been a socialiser of all our litters, as well as older retired queens.
We have a reputation of having very friendly, socialised felines who are happy to play, be handled and that have out-going temperaments.
Question. Do you have any of the following: conditions of sale, health guarantee or warranty, de-sexing agreement, a buyer questionnaire, verbal or personal interview?
Verbal discussion by phone, a personal visit (if local) or Skype/Facetime session.
As stated on my website kittens go to their new home at 12 weeks or older with their pedigree papers, wormed, vet checked, vaccinated, microchipped and desexed.
Question. Is ensuring that your kittens go to the right home a high priority?
What measures do you take to ensure your cats and kittens are going to responsible forever homes?
With all kitten enquiries I like to speak to the person rather than emails. I strongly encourage home visits so numerous questions are asked and answered. It is important that the buyer can meet the needs of the Bengal and that the breed is appropriate for them and their lifestyle. I reserve the right to sell to responsible, cat-loving buyers who will provide the ideal forever home.
Provide a resource list of website links and verbal suggestions to help approved buyer choose appropriate resources.
Advice on litter, food, strategies to help socialise with another feline mate and a welcome pack accompany each kitten.
When asked visit the future home to advise on cat security or assess the living arrangements the buyer wishes to establish.
Question. Do you offer ongoing support?
Encourage regular phone calls, email updates, pictures and videos.
Address any issues as soon as they arise and then follow-up discussion.
Make home visits to see how their new addition is settling in.
Question. Do you assist the buyer with re-homing an animal that was purchased from you if they are unable to keep it?
Fortunately this is rare.
Investigate if they have checked family and friends as to whether they can live with them.
Email people who indicated in the past that they are happy to care for an older cat.
Keep communication lines open as circumstances change.
Phoenix is a beautiful brown rosetted male kitten with glitter pelt for sale.
To be desexed, microchipped and registered before he is ready to leave at 12 weeks for his forever home.
Soft, lovely nature - a quiet achiever.
Genuine enquires only please.
Bengal Kittens & Cats - Bengal Brown Spotted Male For Sale Albury, NSW
While we make every effort to ensure that the breeders listed on Perfect Pets are *registered, responsible, and maintain high ethical standards, please take 5 minutes to read the advice below and also see our detailed information on finding a reputable breeder.
Our recommendation is that you purchase pets locally and in person because with online transactions you can't be 100% sure who you are dealing with. While many reputable breeders send animals interstate safely and without issue, we do not encourage this.
When you contact a breeder, keep in mind that responsible breeders will want some information about things like - the type of home you will offer, if you have experience with the breed and if not if you've researched the breed. Responsible breeders don't want to receive emails and messages that simply ask 'how much for a puppy?', or 'when are kittens available' so tell them a bit about yourself.
Remember - when you take on a new pet, you are making a decision that’s going to significantly affect your life for the next 10-15 years. Please make sure the breed you are interested in suits your family and lifestyle, and that you can give it the type of home it needs to be happy. Above all - use common sense and don't be impulsive.
Please ask these important questions:
1.Can you meet the mother and father, and how old are they?
2.Have the mother and father had any health issues?
3.What health checks and tests were done on the parents and grandparents, are they appropriate for the breed, and can this be verified with documentation?
4.Specifically, what vaccines have been given? Are they microchipped and registered?
5.Have they been been treated for parasites (fleas and worms), and what, precisely, was used?
6.Have they been checked by a vet, and is there evidence of this?
7.How much socialisation has the puppy or kitten had? Have they been raised in a household where they've been exposed to everyday life/children/other pets?
If answered positively and appropriately the answers to these questions should reassure you that the puppy or kitten you're interested in will grow to be a happy healthy animal.
Please note that information regarding breed specific health checks can at times be difficult to understand and interpret. Common genetic disorders are a serious and growing concern. It's not a bad idea to write down the information you've been given and seek advice from your vet for confirmation. Breed clubs are also great sources of information on health testing.
A responsible and caring breeder will also want to make sure you are going to provide a loving and safe forever home, and will ask you lots of questions. They will also provide extensive advice regarding feeding, health, ongoing socialisation, and the long term needs of your pet.
If you have any concerns about a breeder, the welfare of their animals, or if they fail to:
- provide clean and appropriate living conditions for their animals
- meet their promise according to their Perfect Pets Q&A Checklist
- provide documentation supporting health, micro-chipping, vaccinations, pedigree etc
Please contact us, as well as their veterinary practice (if possible), and the appropriate authorities in your area (eg. RSPCA, Local Council).
*All dog breeders listed on Perfect Pets are ANKC registered breeders. Cat breeders are appropriately registered according to their local state/territory guidelines.
