Has begun and has been successful before leaving my home.
Often there is no problem at his new home, but....
this is the single most common reason all breeds of cat are given up.
It truly does attract the kittens.
READ the insert that comes with each bag GREAT advice, It will help a lot.
When you are not home or unable to monitor him ABSOLUTELY DO put him in a smaller room with two litter boxes.
This is not cruel give him toys, a tree, his food, and even a little canned each time you place him in there.
This will be his room and he will get used to it.

OLDER KITTENS / CATS
part 1. You MUST confine the kitten / cat to one room, with no carpet. If they protest, you must bear with it. Maybe put them in a crate, or soft cat carrying bag so they can be beside you in other rooms, when possible hold them, or use a harness so he can be near you not left alone... Do not let him on the floor except in his little room. You MUST be diligent with this. It is an accident that must be stopped immediately before it becomes a habit.. If they have gotten away with this for a week or more, it may take some time, a month maybe more to brake the habit.
part 2. During this time of behavior modification, you MUST get rid of all odor in the carpets . What is under your carpet, lots of padding that has absorbed the odor?? If so, it can be a worse problem. The urine will have soaked through into the wood under flooring. I hope it is not that bad.... good pet ENZYME cleaner works well, test in an out of the way area... if it does not harm your carpet, pour it on the spot so it will penetrate as deep as the urine did... let it soak in...scrub with a brush or broom. use towels to soak up most of the moisture. Repeat as needed. There are several products with enzymes that are good. ALL the odor must be cleaned up before they are allowed back on the floor. You can buy a small light that will detect any remaining odor or stains that are not visible to the naked eye.
part 3. Figure out what
started the behavior problem. An older pet
If you do this after only 2 or 3 accidents, it will be much easier.
a well behaved kitten is a happy kitten
MORE HELPFUL HINTS
the most common complaint about all breeds of cat
is poor litter box habits.
Here are the best tips for resolving a problem.
Please act after only ONE accident!
A kitten from Crue is trained
before you get it, To use pine pellet litter. It is only a baby and
will run and play until the last minute, then it needs to have a litter box
close at hand. Please keep SEVERAL small litter boxes throughout the house
until he gets older and has better control.
Introduction to other pets
Bengals Like Water
Not an accidental dip, Trendar's F2 RU4Real Enjoys playing in Running Water, and not just with a paw ....
It is common for Bengals to dip a paw and lick the water off. Iisn't it more civilized than dipping your nose in the water bowl.
aware that Bengals really DO like water. Not just to look at. If you do not
like a furry friend in your bath or shower, or if you do not think they
should be playing in the water as you wash the dished, then you must teach
them appropriate behavior or simply pout them in another
I am afraid the Bengal will teach YOU that keeping the toilet seat closed IS proper behavior. While a dog may drink out of the pot, a Bengal will be insulted when you do the dirty in their wading pool :-)
Finding toys in the water bowl, or a wet toy in the floor is just part of life with a friendly, frisky Bengal :-)
Shed, Are they Hypoallergenic ?
depends on how allergic you are...
|This is a Note from a family that
purchased 2 of my kittens, after their last 2 cats died of old age.
My answer, Bengals shed Very Litter, it is
most noticeable during spring.
Are Bengals Destructive to Furniture???
not if they have a good
scratching pad.... or their own furniture
and you keep the nails clipped...
Cat Furniture need not be expensive.
These samples are from $20 to $50. from local pet stores.
Flat cardboard scratches area a favorite for my kittens and
Early Spay and
All my pet Bengals are spayed by my
before leaving for their new homes.
This just makes life easier for everyone.
You do not have to worry about the surgery and
I do not have to worry about follow up paperwork.
promote early Spay
If your local vet says wait until 6 months old...
call another vet or call your local animal
shelter for references.

a well known
Bengal Breeder from CA.
|I have noted on several occasions the pain that is
associated with the surgery to be great on animals that are older with the
young kittens displaying either NO pain or MILD pain - It is amazing!
There is also the NUMEROUS added benefits:
*Kittens can go home and start the bonding process with new families with NO Breaks
*Kittens are LESS likely to be declawed as these are typically surgeries that are performed hand in hand
*Kittens heal faster at an early age
*Kittens are examined thoroughly adding to the other vet exams performed on your kittens prior to placement
*Kittens can put their energies into growing and not sexual maturity
*We have seen that ALMOST NEVER do you have *sprayer* that originated from an ESN
*There is comfort in knowing that your kittens are indeed altered and that you as a pet owner do not this responsibility
*Pet owners are thrilled to know this has been taken care of
*It is wonderful to be able to hand over the blue slip to the new owner at the time of purchase and not have to worry about obtaining a proof of alteration certificate
*It eases my mind to know that a kitten was cared for by my vet, the vet you trust and respect
There are other benefits that come about as well - far too numerous to list!
If your vet is unwilling to perform ESN - don't force the issue, he needs to be sure he can do it - but, he might be surprised himself! You may want to seek out a second vet - but ultimately you need to be comfortable.
