Retired Breeding Cats

 

RETIRED BREEDING CATS

We normally retire breeding cats around the age of 3 or so.   These cats are normally adopted into loving "forever" homes.  The adoption fee includes the cost of the spay or neuter and current shots.  This allows owners to get absolutely BEAUTIFUL cats for just more than the cost of a spay or neuter.  These cats settle into pet homes VERY well and are glad for their forever families.  They are all in excellent health and make WONDERFUL pets.  They are past that kitten "terrorizing everything" stage which makes them perfect for working families and families with children.

Introducing New Cats & Kittens into your Household

 
 
The key to a successful introduction of a Bengal into your busy household will depend greatly upon following a strict introduction procedure.
 
First, strict quarantine in a small room such as a bathroom with a litter box, food and water.  Very frequent quiet visitations at first.  Just sitting to let them get used to you.  Then brushing with a toilet brush (a NEW one) and talking a lot to them.  Then petting them after brushing with the toilet brush.  Then, after several days, brief periods of gentle lifting and putting them back down.  Then after a few days of this, picking them up and holding them for brief periods.
 
Then after this goes well, and they are totally relaxed, you can let them into a slightly bigger space.  Still no introductions to dogs or other cats at this point.  Making the children sit quietly and brush them with the brush and speak quietly to them.  Then after that goes well, they can pet them.  After all that goes well, then you can take a towel and rub the scent of the cats and introduce the smell of the cats to each other.  This allows them to get used to the smell before actually meeting.  The full quarantine must last at a minimum 2 weeks.
 
When I had dogs and cats, I made sure the cat had a high place to be when the dog came in.  I made sure that the dog didn't chase the cat.  Some cats will never get used to dogs, and others will.  You can never tell which will and which won't.
 
Some cats will get along and some won't.  Some will adjust after some time.  These things just can't be predicted.  You will have to be willing to live with the possibility that a new addition may not get along with existing animals in your household.  If you are comfortable with that, then I would say it will probably all work out.

 

 

 

Let us know if you want to reserve one of our breeders when they retire from breeding.
