Asian Leopard Cats,
Coming Very Soon !
Be prepared for me to pester you!
All kidding aside, we're always here to Help!
For the first week you will get daily texts and/or emails from me asking how things are going and if there are any adjustment concerns. I do not want to bother you but I have found that most people will not contact me for what they think are "silly questions" yet those silly questions left unanswered are what create anxiety and stress - we do not want that for you or the kitten !
Cat Climbing Trees, Toys and Scratching Posts:
A Great Resource for kitty furniture (climbing trees and scratching posts) is overstock.com - they have over three hundred choices - here's the link ! I love the selection and the prices are (by far) the best I have found anywhere. If you ask anyone who knows about Bengals they will tell you that Bengals absolutely love to be up high on top of things watching events from a safe perch. This could not be more true ! If they do not have their own climbing tree they will adopt one of yours - I promise ! Scratching posts are an absolute must if you want to preserve your furniture. It is a moderate investment ($100 or even less) and one you will both appreciate.
As for toys, I have not met a Bengal yet that does not love the cheap ($.99) little fuzzy mice that rattle. All of my adults and kittens carry them around, toss them up in the air and catch them and hide them for later play time. Another favorite is a wanded toy known as "Da Bird" I have found them at numerous pet supply stores for about $8 or $9. Of course there is also the small rattling balls and the ones with bells inside. Very inexpensive toys provide lots of entertainment when you cannot play with them - if they have no toys of their own they will adopt yours - I promise !
Exercise is extremely important for both you and your kitties happiness ! ! ! Just like a new puppy, if they have received enough play time chasing a toy with you (their new best friend) - or rolled up piece of paper - they will not look for, or find mischief. Mischief can be found on your shelves, tables, desks, furniture, etc. You will be a much happier kitty parent with a well exercised kitty and your kitty will enjoy the bonding time with you and greatly benefit (socially and physically) from the exercise. All that is necessary is ten minutes here and there at different times of the day and all will be right with the world !
Keeping in Touch !
We really mean it ! We want you to know that you can count on us for support and advice during the entire life of your kitty - not just a week or two after you purchase him/her. If we don't know the answer to a question we'll help find the answer. We love each and every kitten born in our care and consider everyone who takes one of our kitties home with them a part of our Cattery family too. Family is always there for each other and in that sense we will always be there for you.
It warms our hearts to hear of how much fun and love you are sharing with your Bengal Chateau Kitten !

Just like any kitty, above all else, Bengals need love, affection and a clean, healthy environment!
