Those who spot the difference choose us
Updated March 2021
We have been breeding Bengal cats since 1999. This is our life passion. Buying from us means buying from Bengal cat breeders who will be by your side for the lifetime of your cat. Bengal cats are what brought our lives together; they will be in our lives until we leave this earth.
Consistent quality draws people to our cattery. We specialize in retaining wild essence - the look of tree-dwelling small wildcats - combined with confident, intelligent, outgoing personalities resulting from selective breeding and intensive socialization from being raised underfoot in our home with our family - including dogs. Our breeding cats are tested for PK Deficiency, PRA-b, and HCM. Heart testing since 2004 has resulted in multiple generations of cats whose hearts are disease-free.
We show in both TICA and CFA, participate as voting members of CFA Bengal Breed Council, and represent the Bengal cat on the TICA Bengal Breed Committee, composed of seven breeders elected by registered Bengal cat breeders. You will not find two people more dedicated to the health, welfare, and betterment of the Bengal breed.
Please read Purchasing a Bengal for more information about how the Waitlist works. It also explains the payments and our one price - $2200 - method. Anytime you send us money, you receive a digital, legally binding contract to assure you we are not a scam.
While we do not ship our kittens, people fly to us to pick up their Bengal kittens. Look around; our Bengal cats are different. We are different. We encourage you to look elsewhere. We challenge you to find wilder looking SBT Bengals and more thoughtful, experienced Bengal cat breeders in any other program - worldwide. Those who spot the difference choose us.
Available Retired Adult Female
Ume is a third-generation female Bengal. She is 6 years old and looking for a quiet home to retire to. Ume is a shy but gentle girl. She takes a while to accept new people, but once she loves you she loves you very fully. She loves to be around other cats and tends to be very maternal with cat companions. She is good around dogs as long as they are not too boisterous with her. She would ideally be suited to a home with no young children. A single person or a retired couple with a quiet home would be a good fit for her. Essentially somebody with patience to allow her time to settle in and develop a bond at her own pace.
If you feel that Ume might be the right cat for you, please fill in our Kitten Application and specify that you are interested in Ume.
Calendar of Events
View our published Waitlist for Bengal kittens.
We do not have any available kittens. Due to COVID, more people are working from home, and more people have discovered they will be able to work from home in the future. This has increased the demand for pets all across the globe. Unfortunately, this has also increased internet scams for pets, which account for 25% of all internet scams.
If you commit to our waitlist today, we optimistically MAY have a kitten for you to bring home sometime before July 15, 2021. We realistically may have a kitten for you by the end of 2021. The length of your wait will depend on the specificity of your request for a Bengal kitten, how hard it is to produce what you want, and how many people above you on the list want the same thing. Our Bengal kitten Waitlist is public, so you can do your own calculations of how long you think the wait will be.
Due to cats' natural breeding cycle, our largest groupings of kittens go to their new homes in June and November. That does not mean we don't send kittens home in other months. It means those are the two months in which the largest number of Bengal kittens go to their new homes.

Not all breeders are equal in the way they treat their cats or their customers. If you seek a pedigree pet, you must do your research to determine that you are buying from a legitimate breeder who wants the best for their cats. Our website, our involvement with the breed, our history of health testing, and our customer service are evidence of our authenticity. If you wish to get a kitten before the timeframe in which we have one available, we recommend that you look through our website and use what we offer as a standard upon which to measure other breeders to avoid a scam.
Below is an assortment of kittens we have bred in the past. You can see all of the kittens we have produces since 2015 on our Facebook page by looking through the photo albums. You do not need a Facebook account to access the Facebook page.
