Please feel free to contact
us via e-mail with any questions or to inquire about a specific
kitten. However, before we can make a commitment to sell any
kitten or cat, we must speak to you on the phone. We care about
our Bengals, and want to be sure that you will be happy with
your Wit's End Bengal - and that the kitten will be happy in
Before You Buy
You will want
to become familiar with the Bengal cat, and carefully consider
if this breed is right for you. You will find a lot of useful
information elsewhere on this site, or contact us with any questions
you may have.
We want to help you select
a Bengal that will bring you many years of joy and pride. Most
Wit's End Bengals will readily adapt to a wide variety of home
situations. Let us know if you have any other pets in the home,
cats or dogs, the ages of any children, whether the kitten will
be home alone for long periods on a daily basis, and your previous
animal experience, so we can help insure that the kitten you
choose will adjust well to your particular home environment.
Pet Only, or Breeding?
We are happy to work with those who are, or want to become, responsible
breeders. However, kittens placed as pets MUST be spayed or neutered
before sexual maturity. This will avoid unplanned "oops"
litters and normal sexual behaviors - in both males and females
- that are undesirable in pets, ("calling", spraying,
and higher degrees of territorialism, plus the strong musky odor
of tom cat urine).
If you are interested
in a Wit's End Bengal to start or add to your breeding program,
call us to discuss your goals. We can help you find the Bengal
that will meet your needs.
A large packet
of your kitten's food, a favorite toy, nutritional supplement,
and a kitten "owner's manual" is included with your
- The generous supply of
food gives you time to find more. Or, if you will be changing
the kitten's diet, we supply enough food to let you make that
change gradually - minimizing digestive upsets.
- The kitten will feel
more secure in a strange new environment if he has his favorite
toy with him.
- Some of the nutrients
are lost in the processing of even the best premium foods. "Udo's
Choice - Pet Essentials for Cats", (available from www.vitaminshoppe.com),
provides an array of these valuable nutrients, mostly from organic
whole food sources, including digestive enzymes helps your pet
to absorb these nutrients and to get the full benefit of his
- We add Probiotic Advantage,
(available from www.DrDavidWilliams.com), to supply beneficial
digestive bacteria. Made for humans, this product goes way beyond
adding a little acidophilous or yogurt to your pet's food. Specially
encapsulated in a tiny bead that prevents the stomach acids from
destroying the beneficial microorganisms before they reach the
- The kitten "Owner's
Manual" provides tips and suggestions to helping your kitten
settle into the new home, introducing new pets to those already
in the home, teaching the "house rules", litters &
litterboxes, foods, carriers, etc. There is also a section for
training your kitten to walk on a harness and leash.
Nearly a decade
in breeding Bengals has taught us a lot - often "the hard
way". With experience in animal husbandry, breeding, nutrition,
and behavior going back to the '70s, we can help! Whether you
got your Bengal from us last week or years ago, please call or
email with any questions or problems; we will get back to you
as soon as possible.
Each Wit's End
Bengal kitten comes with a written health guarantee. You must
have your kitten checked by your veterinarian within 72 hours
Many laws and
strict policies regulating the shipping of animals insure the
safe arrival of your new Bengal at any major US airport. These
days, a plane trip is as safe for your kitten as it is for you!
All arrangements for shipping your kitten, including the shipping
fee, crate, required health certificates, and delivery to the
airport, can be taken care of for you - $195. to most major US
airports. Older kittens or adult cats may be more.
If you prefer,
we can often arrange to hand deliver your new Bengal directly
to you, if you live in the northeast or mid Atlantic states.
The cost depends on the distance, but can be very reasonable
if combined with another trip or if you arrange to pick up your
kitten at a show where we are exhibiting. Call for details.
While we hope
that your new Bengal will always be with you, we understand that
life is unpredictable. However, you never have to worry about
wrestling with that awful decision to take your pet to a shelter,
wondering if it will find a new home before time runs out - if
you ever become unable to care for the Bengal you got from Wit's
End, it will always have a home with us.
