first questions everyone asks is
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.
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.
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
such as Marble or Blue.
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.
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
These kittens, male and 2 unrelated females went with the same family in PA.
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

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 !

Very Rarely, if I still have a kitten available when he is 4 months old
I may lower their price.

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.
Reputable breeders have worked hard at upgrading the genetic health and
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.
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
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.

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.

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

. . 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
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!
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,
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.
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.
If you have room in your heart for a Bengal
but can not currently
pay for a kitten
please consider sharing your love
with a Bengal in need of Rescue
