What Should I expect to pay for a Bengal?
There are many factors that go into the pricing of Bengal kittens. The breeder’s reputation and the quality of the kitten are very important. The quality of the kitten is based on the Bengal Breed Standard and any small imperfections they may have. A responsible breeder will charge anywhere from $1,500 – $2,000 for a pet quality kitten, for a show/breeder quality (PET) kitten $2,500.00 to $3,000. They will be altered. It is very important that you check out the breeder’s reputation before you buy. They should be registered with TICA or CFA which makes them sign a strict code of ethics. The breeders will provide adoption contract, health guarantee, vaccinations, a microchip and even spay or neuter the kitten before going home. We ask that you take your new kitten to your vet within 72 hours, to have your vet confirm the health of your kitten. We do guarantee against congenital defects for a period of time.
If you are looking to find a “less expensive” Bengal, you may want to look into adopting a retired breeder (we sometimes have retired breeders available).
Can I find a less expensive, quality Bengal Kitten?
NO, as the saying goes: “You get what you pay for”, and “If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.” It takes a lot of time and money to ensure great, healthy cats and kittens and this is reflected in our prices. One of the biggest BENGAL scams is you will find is offering a $500-$600 kitten with FREE shipping… Shipping is not cheap (RED FLAG). Shipping can run between $450 up to $620.
Sometimes breeders have retired Studs and Queens that are healthy and need a loving pet home to retire to and are less in price.
