Bengal Cats

 The Bengals we raise at Coyote Acres Ranch are straightbred Bengal, without registration papers. We produce Bengals as pets, for people to enjoy as such. We do not show cats, and our buyers do not show cats. There are registered breeders who will tell you that unregistered kittens are not pure or are of lesser quality. If you choose to believe that, by all means go to a pedigree breeder and pay three times as much! 

As for us, we raise beautiful pet Bengals and we constantly strive to improve them. We have cats that either exhibit or carry for nearly every color and pattern you can imagine: rosettes and marble; brown, silver, snow (lynx, mink, and sepia), blue, melanistic, and solid blue. 

The price is $600 firm. I accept a $100 non-refundable deposit to hold your kitten. 

Our kittens leave at 10 to 12 weeks of age with two vaccinations done. ***Please Note- if you are an anti-vaxxer and do not want your kittens vaccinated, please move on. Unvaccinated kittens are not an option, this is non-negotiable.*** We are a no-nonsense breeder, what you see is what you get. If you think our kittens are not pure, please feel free to contact another breeder.

If you are a breeder, do not be afraid to say so (because if you lie, we will find out). A good breeder has nothing to hide, and if you feel you have to keep it a secret, you probably should not be breeding. One of our females is a PRA carrier, and any kitten we sell that has a carrier parent is also a potential carrier! Breeders MUST be up-front so a kitten that may be used for breeding can be genetically tested. 

That being said, if you wish to be added to the list, please contact us! We will be happy to answer any questions! Contact via e-mail is preferred: lorri@coyoteacresranch.com . PLEASE NOTE- , lorri@coyoteacresranch.com , NOT  patric@coyoteacresranch.com . If you e-mail Patric, he has to forward the e-mail to me!

A special note about spay/neuter:

Why do we expect you to spay or neuter your Bengal? A lot of people assume that breeders are just bossy and want to protect our sales. Maybe that is true of some breeders, but that is not my motivation. Firstly, breeding is not something to be taken lightly, and it is not something you should ever do impulsively or "accidentally". If you haven't done it before, let me assure you, you have no idea what you are getting yourself into. You have to be absolutely dedicated to it or you should not do it at all. But more importantly, the main reason I expect my babies to ultimately be sterilized (at the age of about 6 months, ideally) is because when you purchase one of my Bengal kittens, I expect you to commit to that cat for its lifetime. Period. If you opt to keep your cat intact, you will likely eventually find them scent-marking in your home. Breeders who tell you they do not do this are not being truthful with you. If you do find your cat is scent-marking, and then get it sterilized, it may stop. But it may not. After that, if you decide you cannot tolerate it, you are likely to try to re-home the cat. You have two options- tell the truth, in which case no one is likely to want the cat, or lie. The next owner will likely do the same thing. This sets the cat up for a lifetime of re-homing, and eventually ending up in a shelter or rescue, or being a barn cat somewhere. THIS IS NOT WHAT I WANT FOR MY BENGALS. If you cannot commit to the lifetime of the cat, then do not even contact me. A pet is for life.

A special note for people who need more information about the breed:

If you have not had a Bengal before, you should do your homework and seriously research the breed before you commit to purchasing a kitten. Bengals are not for everyone, particularly if you want a low-energy, low-maintenance breed (which the Bengal is not). However, several recent unfortunate incidents of what is known in marketing as "showrooming" have dampened my enthusiasm for lengthy phone calls from people who want to ask me questions. If you plan to purchase your Bengal(s) from another breeder, please call them, not another breeder you have no intention of buying from. If you wish to go on my waiting list (the wait is not very long anymore, as it once was) or you see a kitten on this website that you are interested in, please call! But if you are buying elsewhere, please question the breeder you are purchasing from. If they will not help you or answer your questions- maybe you should rethink that purchase. All breeders should provide support, and ALL breeders should be helping you figure out if the breed is right for you.

Knowing marbles are in less demand, I would not have bred Luna to Bagheera if I had known she was a marble carrier. But as it turns out, this boy is the best silver marble I have ever raised. He is so stunning! If you have not considered a marble before, have a look at this guy! When we weaned him away from his mother he was fairly grumpy for a few days, but now he is as social as they come, and he loves playing with Smudge's kittens. Full of curiosity and mischief, Gus is as bold as brass. The problem with Gus is that when people come to see kittens, he is very shy and he hides. I have decided to reduce his price, and he will be neutered in January of 2019. What he needs is someone who will give him a few days to get over his shyness, preferably someone who will simply appreciate his incredible beauty and let him bond to them on his own terms, in his own time, which he will! He just needs a little warm-up time. Probably not best for a home full of small or rambunctious children, and he would likely be great with another cat or kitten for company. In fact, if you are thinking of one of our seal mink snows, why not consider getting Gus for his companion! They are very bonded, it would be a great match!
