Bengal Kitten Prices

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

       2015...    
 

I usually sell pet 
Bengal kittens for
$2000. to $4500.
as pets
Most of these kittens can be shown in TICA cat shows under alter class.

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

KITTENS FOR BREEDING AND SHOWING ARE $7000. AND UP


Since 1987 I,  Holly,  as Trendar Bengal cattery have been Registered with
*The International Cat Association (TICA)
I have also been registered with
* Cat Fanciers Association (CFA)
 CFA does not yet allow Bengals in their cat shows.

AS YOU CAN SEE IN THIS PHOTO, 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 $1200.

I have been breeding for genetic strength to guarantee a disease free kitten with  gentle nature and vivid rosette patterns for over 27 years.  My kittens have no ear mites, no fleas,
no worms and no upper respiratory infections.

  Most of my kittens are better than 'some' you will find in cat shows.

   Most of my kittens have a pattern more beautiful then the early crosses with the with Asian Leopard Cats.

 

 

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 8 weeks old. healthy face
In over 27 years, I have had no problems with early surgery.

Read the many notes from my happy clients on my
 Thanks / reference pages

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.

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 ROSETTE PATTERN

In these images above taken at 2 days old and at 17 days old
  you can see the fuzzy line near his spine is braking into chained rosettes
 like the ocelot's pattern also notice the fuzzy line behind
 his front leg is braking into elongated rosettes

below at almost a month old, this kitten shows even
more definition of pattern and clarity of coat.

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

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.
 

Shipping 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 Trendar in Charleston West Virginia
to pick up your kitten, I must collect 6% state sales tax.
$60. on each $1000.
