Do bengals get along
with other cats. Emphatically, YESSS.
We have placed them with everything from Siamese,
persians to exotics and regular cats with no problems.
See pics of pets we have sold page.
How big do they get?
Boys are usually 1/3 larger, ranging from 12-18
lbs Girls 8-12 lbs.
Do they need any special care?
No they are totally domestic and eat regular
good quality cat foods. Ours eat dry and canned
each day and we cook for them too - chicken cat
soup...Fresh grass is good too and catnip once
Do they shed?
If you get a kitten with pelt and glitter I find
they shed not at all. Just once a year usually
in August to get their new coats. Very little
owner grooming is necessary.
What litter do you recommend?
Fresh Magic White Crystal Litter.
Totally dehydrates any solid waste and absorbs
all urine. No odor at all! The clumpable is very dangerous,
especially for kittens as they can ingest it and
a clump of sand can develop in their intestines
and kill them. Crystal is totally safe if
Do they like dogs?
YES - the bengal is a very self-assured cat who
is not afraid of basically anything. Once they
get used to your dog(s) they become fast friends.
||Keep new kitten in a small room by
itself in the beginning with litter, food and water
and bring it out only when you are home. That way
you can teach the cat proper behavior and its limits
within your home. You would not turn a two year
old toddler loose in your home unsupervised - same
witha baby cat...
||Some kittens get loose stools from
the stress of moving We recommend feeding them yogurt
or buttermilk twice a day to correct this. You can
also buy benebac paste at most pet shops or your
vet and that is live yogurt cultures.
Do they every revert to the "wild"?
In my 14 years with Bengals I have never had
any one's temperament change, neither has any
of my customers.
Do they talk alot?
No but they will really talk to you and hold
a conversation. My daughter taped our Supreme
Takaido in a 20 minute talk she had with him one
day. They really do answer you....A new kitten
may cry the first few days from missing its littermates
and familiar surroundings but after they adjust
they are fairly quiet cats..
Get them spayed or neutered at
