Bengal Kitten Prices

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

       2011...    
Top quality silver and gold bengal kittens

I usually sell pet kittens for $1500. to $3000.
Pet price always includes spay before the kitten leaves.
I sell
 show / breeding kittens for $4000.

 If you are patient maybe you might get a pet from me  for $1200. to $1500. During times when I have more kittens available I will price a few
in this lower range.

Show quality pets are  $2000 to $3000   
It is rare for me to have a pet kitten priced as low as $900. These would be kittens that are getting older or are a less sought after pattern or coloration such as a marble

MY Pet  Price includes spay or neuter before the kitten leaves for your home, Vaccinations up to date and a written guarantee that your kitten is healthy and happy.   Two year genetic health guarantee.

   Bengal Kittens from Trendar...

My Veterinarian does Spay  as early as 8 weeks old.  In over 20 years, I have not had a problem with early surgery.

Very Rarely if kittens get to be 4 months old and are not sold I lower their price.

Maybe I should not tell people this, but if they want to wait to choose a kitten that remains, and may better fit your budget, that works for both of us :-)

But remember, the kittens that remain may be ones with least desirable color or pattern ....  

OR they may be ones that I have held back to evaluate for breeding and showing! I may later decide the kitten did not mature to expectations. In this later case the kitten will still command a higher price.

When you decide how much your budget will allow I can suggest a few kittens in that price range.

Usually the kittens need to be at least 3 weeks old to set a first price.  The Bengals 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 the kitten improves, the price changes accordingly.

With my many years of experience, I can evaluate pattern and color fairly well at a few days old. Contrast, coat quality and conformation change a lot in the first 5 to 6 months of age. Bengals have subtle coloring changes with the seasons, through out their life.

You can find cheaper priced Kittens, like these .. I found at an online auction.

? can you see the difference ?
 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 most Bengal kittens looked like this.  Not Today!

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

ALL Trendar Bengal Kittens have good contrast and rosettes of some type, size and shape.

generally speaking the larger the rosettes the higher the price

 
 
If you search around for low cost Bengal Kittens.... 

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?
  
You do NOT want to feel sorry for and buy a kitten that looks sick so you can take care of it...
This encourages the breeder to keep on doing what they are doing.... Producing more inferior quality genetically weak kittens in unsanitary unhealthy environment.



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 and music...  They meet other cats and even sometimes dogs and kids  :-)

I will ship my kittens when weather permits. Shipping within the United States is usually $350. 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.
