WILDANDBEAUTY BENGAL CATS CATTERY WELCOMES YOU WITH OPEN PAWS :)
ORIGINS OF THE BENGALS
The Bengal is a hybrid breed of domestic cat. Bengals result from crossing a domestic feline with an Asian Leopard Cat (Prionailurus Bengalensis), a small wild cat found in Asia and in particular in the province of Bengale. The story began in 1963 when the american Jean S. Mill realized this crossing for the first time. From this mating were born the first hybrids 'F1' (1st generation) then "F2" (2nd generation), half wild cats. The Bengal cat, said ‘domestic’ needs to be separated by at least 4 generations from the original crossing between a domestic feline and an ALC. The goal is to keep the "wild" appearance of the Asian leopard and the "sweet and beauty" temperament of the domestic cat. This is how we have chosen the name of our cattery "Wildandbeauty". On our side, we produce the best kitten 6th, 7th and further generations after the ALC, which allows us to produce really affectionate kittens with a good temperament.
It took several years before the breed has been recognized by the TICA (The International Cat Association) and it was only in 1985 that Jean S. Mill was able to attend a first show. The success was immediate. Today, this breed has gain popularity all around the world!
Welcome to "Wildandbeauty" cattery, our small family Bengal cattery located in Manchester, Great Britain. We are registered in TICA and FIFe. Being a small home cattery we have been awarded the TICA Outstanding Cattery Certificate of which we are very proud.
We are a friends who are passionate of Bengal cats who undertook this great adventure in 2007/08. Our mission is to give birth and raise Bengal kittens in perfect health with a look and behavior that will steal your heart!
Health, Temperament and Outstanding Quality are our priorities.
We breed these small leopards in the traditional colours of black/brown spotted tabby.
We specialize in top quality Bengal cats with spectacular colors and markings!
Our goal is a small home breeding where cats live together with people (and other pets) at home and are full-fledged household members, sleep in bed with a human, are polished with typical home situations - guests, noise, TV, vacuum cleaner, and other animals. Cats have daily contact with people and their breeding is our hobby, not a source of income.
To get to offer you kittens of this quality, we select our breeding Bengals among the most beautiful bloodlines of the world! Each was chosen with great care according to very high standards. We place great emphasis on the health of our cats by testing them for main genetic and contagious diseases typical for bengal cats including HCM testing every year.
We are not only just a breeders, we are a pet lovers, and in our family we have also a very lovely domestic cat named Zorro and 2 chihuahua dogs;)
We hope you enjoy your visit to Wildandbeauty Bengals and we invite you to browse our menus to learn more about this beautiful breed that is the Bengal cat.
