Bengal Kitten Prices

                      Among the first questions everyone asks is
 
What's it gonna cost me??

BEWARE OF SCAMMERS
ESPECIALLY AROUND HOLIDAY SEASONS...
IF THE KITTEN LOOKS TO GOOD FOR THE PRICE... RUN....
IF SOMEONE ASKS FOR YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER... SAY NO
TELL THEM YOU WILL OVERNIGHT A CERTIFIED CHECK TO THEIR STREET ADDRESS.
IF THEY ARE A SCAMMER THEY WILL NOT HAVE A STREET ADDRESS IN THE USA

I usually sell pet 
Bengal kittens for
$2000. to $4500.
as pets
Most of my spayed pet kittens are of high enough quality to be shown in TICA cat shows in the alter class.

Pet price always includes the spay before the kitten leaves.
** NO EXCEPTIONS **

SHOW QUALITY KITTENS FOR BREEDING ARE $7000. AND UP


Crue Bengals is Registered with
*The International Cat Association (TICA)
 
 

AS YOU CAN SEE IN THESE PHOTOS, I TAKE PRIDE IN RAISING MY KITTENS TO BE  SWEET NATURED AND GENTLE WITH CHILDREN.


If I choose to place one of my Bengal Kittens into a breeding program with a breeder who has good solid references. This kitten will be priced at $7000. and up.

It is rare for me to have a pet kitten priced as low as $1,000.
These would be a less sought after pattern
or coloration such as Marble or Blue.

My sweet beautiful retired breeding Bengals
are often priced $600. to $1500.

I have been breeding for genetic strength to guarantee a disease free kitten with  gentle nature and vivid rosette patterns for 30 years.  My kittens have no ear mites, no fleas,
no worms and no upper respiratory infections.

Most if not All of my kittens have  more exotic leopard rosette patterns and have better social behaved than many cats you will find in cat shows.

   Most of my kittens have a pattern more beautiful then "F1, F2 " first and second crosses with Asian Leopard Cats.

 

 

When people ask....
 "why so much more for a kitten not spayed"

My Answer might help others....

Subject; My soap box, prices
As far of Bengals in general, and My Bengals in particular, the change is impressive

I now own Some of the best Bengals and terms of genetics and beauty That can be found.
    This comes not with spare time and pennies....
 It is full time for me to care for the cats I have, equal or more time working with potential clients.

For several years running, registered Bengal kittens have been the highest ranked kittens in
 # of kittens registered. This is very high demand  Which creates a lot of scam sales.

Holly Baker of Trendar Bengals sold only 3 kittens in the last year for breeding.
These kittens, male and 2 unrelated females went with the same family in PA.
Crue Bengals,    http://www.cruebengals.com/index.htm

 With the purchase of a top quality unrelated pair I do give $1000. discount on the second kitten.

I include a custom web site design and up to 3 hours per month updates after the initial design for 2 years.  I know secrets to get you high search engine ranking.....
And you get ME...  there to help you and to answer your questions from my 29+ years of experience. This will help insure that you get off to a GOOD start raising and selling your kittens for more than the average bengal breeders can get...

I stand firm with my spay / neuter policy.
People know and trust me... and come back to me.

If you want to start breeding... starting with the best will result in you getting the highest prices.
If you buy breeding cats from me....  My breeding contract says you will have a vet that does early spay on all your kittens unless sold for more than $5000.
Along with other requirements....  you will give me the contact info for this vet before taking one of my kittens for breeding.

as I said, the competition is fierce, but I do get what I ask for, and why ??
think about it as you look over my cats and kittens again.
also check, and let me know my web site rank in the search engines.. months since I did the search myself.....

There are a lot of scams 'often I am told' using photos stolen from Trendar and other top breeders !
You will find poor quality Bengals  for less $.  but you can not sell kittens for what I get if you are using low quality Bengals.

ARE  YOU THINKING ABOUT BREEDING BENGALS,
OR ADDING TO YOUR ALREADY ESTABLISHED
BENGAL BREEDING PROGRAM?


As a responsible breeder I must ask many questions about your breeding program.
Or about why you think you want to be a breeder.

Bloodlines as genetically healthy and beautiful as mine are NOT EASY TO FIND...
I need to protect them...
It is a matter of good business practice ... competition with the best kittens....

If you read the top of my price page you will see what the Best kittens sell for :-)
even at my prices I have customers come back to me for another kitten... or 2.

You have also read how much I get for my kittens with breeding rights.

I want to know....

1 what kind of work do you do?

2 how much time do you have to dedicate to your cats care and sales?

     I put as much time in answering email and updating my web site as I do caring for my kittens.

3 How many male female Bengals do you have?
  or plan to have

4 do you have a web site where I can see your cats?
please send your web address

5 who did you get your first Bengals from? what cattery? where are they located?

6 does that breeder have a website where I can see the quality you purchased from?

7 If breeding now, how many kittens have you sold since you started breeding?
  about how many kittens do you sell each year?

8 how do you (plan to) advertise to sell your Bengal kittens?

9 How much $ do you usually get for your kittens?

10 do you spay / neuter your pets before you let them go?

11 if not, how do you KNOW they have not been bred ?

12 how many kittens have you sold (plan to sell) for breeding?

a Trendar Kitten, 2017

 

 

MY Pet  Price includes spay or neuter    before the kitten leaves for your home, Vaccinations up to date, a fecal check; written guarantee that your kitten is healthy and happy and a Three year genetic health guarantee. bengal kitten SOLD When you figure in the cost of spay or neuter and that you are getting a Healthy Well Socialized kitten that does not need to be treated for ring-worm, upper respiratory infections, worms, ear mites, fleas or other ailments, you can see that I am offering you a good price....

 
Wide Clean Eyes, Clean Ears and Confident Playful expression with good clear color and intense contrast of pattern, always some rosettes on short soft coats.

You can't beat a
 Bengal Kittens from Trendar...

My Veterinarian does Spay  as early as 9 weeks old if the kitten weighs 2 pounds. healthy face
 I have had no problems with early surgery.

 

Very Rarely, if I still have a kitten available when he is 4 months old I may lower their price.
If is a kitten that I have held back to evaluate for my breeding program,
then decide not keep it for myself....
the price as a pet will remain high.

  

 

 

YOU CAN FIND CHEAPER BENGAL KITTENS

You can find cheaper priced Kittens. I found these at an online auction. They were listed as Bengals?

These kittens are NOT from Trendar....
   Are they really Bengals as they were advertised ?

 The difference is easy to see...


 The spots are very small and uniform in size, they are also for the most part vertically aligned, like broken tabby stripes. The colors are muted, not vividly contrasting.... These could be Ocicat or Egyptian Mau kittens just as easily as poor quality Bengals.  

25 years ago many Bengal kittens looked like this. 
 Not Today!

 Reputable breeders have worked hard at upgrading the genetic health and patterns
 of their Bengal Kittens and the breed as a whole. 

ALL Trendar Bengal Kittens have vivid contrast and rosettes of varying type, size and shape.


 

 

PATTERN DEVELOPMENT
IN BABY BENGALS

Usually the most beautiful Bengal kittens sell first.
If you want to wait to choose a kitten that remains, and may better fit your budget, that works for both of us :-)
The kitten that remain may be the one with least desirable color or pattern .... He will still have a wonderful sweet personality.
If it is a kitten that I have held back to evaluate for my own breeding and showing program then later decide the kitten did not mature to expectations.
  This kitten will still command a higher price.  

click here learn more about kitten evaluation

Usually the kittens need to be at least 3 weeks old to set a first price. 
The Bengal Babies change so much in the first few weeks and months that the price can change too. Once I tell you a price on a particular kitten, and you send a contract and deposit, I will not raise that price for you. If you do not send a deposit and contract, and the kitten improves, the price changes accordingly.

DEVELOPMENT OF COAT QUALITY AND ROSETTE PATTERN
 

      

In these images above taken at 5 weeks old, with his fuzzy baby fur
 and at 10 weeks old with shiny short silky fur.
It is incredible how fast my Bengal Kittens change...

 

I have the right to not sell a kitten if it improved into one that I want to keep.
 If you have a deposit on that kitten, you can choose whether I should refund your deposit or allow you first pick from other available kittens or from kittens born within my next 3 litters. . . . . This is your choice. . .
With my many years of experience, I can evaluate pattern and color fairly well at a few days old. Contrast, coat quality and conformation continue to change in the first 5 to 6 months of age. Bengals have subtle coloring changes with the seasons, through out their life.

 



 

BUYER BEWARE OF CHEAPER BENGALS

bengal cats


These are Clean Healthy
Bengal Kittens from TRENDAR

 

 

If you search around, you can find
low cost Bengal Kittens.... 

 

BUYER BEWARE....


PLEASE look closely at the eyes and ears and nose and under the tail. 


Check for fleas, flea dander (like little coffee grounds on the skin) 
Check for any places that have hair missing... could it be ringworm?
Is the kitten hiding or growling when you try to play with it?

ALL Trendar Bengal Kittens come with  a health guarantee.




generally speaking the larger the rosettes the higher the price

 

. . WHEN YOU FIND A LOW COST BENGAL KITTEN
PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU ARE DOING

It is natural to feel sorry for a poor quality, unhealthy, unhappy kitten...
PLEASE DO NOT PAY FOR a kitten that may die of complications caused by genetic inferiority or an unhealthy environment and improper care. Thinking you are doing a good thing... taking it home and give it a better life... is not the correct thing to do...
 
Besides your enormous vet bills...
YOUR MONEY ENCOURAGES THE BREEDER TO KEEP PRODUCING MORE KITTENS TO HAVE  AN SICKLY UNHAPPY LIFE.

 IF THE CONDITION OF THE KITTENS AND THE ENVIRONMENT ARE THAT BAD REPORT THEM TO THE PROPER AUTHORITIES

YOU CAN HELP END THIS BAD BREEDING PROGRAM SO NO MORE KITTENS WILL BE BORN INTO THIS SAD KIND OF LIFE



Also be sure the kitten is well socialized,
handled  a LOT every day....
and exposed to many sights and sounds.

   
My kittens are all inside my home, with sounds of the kitchen, cleaning and music... 
They meet other cats and even sometimes dogs and children 
They get lots of play time and learn confidence and trust.



  I play with the kittens every day!  Trendar Kitten

I will ship my kittens when weather permits.
Shipping within the United States is usually $400.
 including Priority Air Fair, shipping crate and Vet. health certificate.
Your kitten arrives with TICA registration paper,   health records,
and a supply of food that he is currently eating.

Again, all pets are spayed or neutered before leaving for their new homes.
 

Better than Shipping

I encourage people to contact www.Uship.com for door to door delivery at an extremely low price.

 

 by air, is quite safe, but it is not fun for anyone.  Shipping is done as a courtesy. Many hours can be spent to secure a schedule. Unlike the thought that you call once and they give you the correct info, this is NOT the way it works.  Try it :-) call 3 times then compare what you have been told...
 After repeated reconfirmation at the 800# and the airport,  occasionally shipping still does not happen as planned. It takes time and gas for me to get to the airport.  My preferred vet is 45 minutes drive each way to get your shipping Health Certificate...
I will worry about the flights until the kitten arrives safely at it's destination.  In 24 years I have never had a kitten lost or injured, but I have had delayed flights, missed flights and very concerned customers.
I usually ship from a small airport, I know my kittens get special handling from employees here. This small airport has commuter plains to connect to larger plains. I am sorry but I must pass on this extra cost to you.

If you choose to drive to our home in PA
to pick up your kitten, I must collect state sales tax.



After reading over the information I have written to share with you. Feel free ask any other questions,

I am more than happy to help you,
now and after you purchase a sweet beautiful unique Crue Bengal Kitten.

but can not currently pay for a kitten
