|Prior to bringing your new kitten home you are going to want do get a couple things.
First, you will want to pick up a cat carrier which will be useful throughout the life of your Bengal.
A heavy ceramic water bowl is recommended as bengals enjoy flipping those light flimsy ones right over!
What to Bring with you: *Cat Carrier with small blanket or towel
* Final Payment Balance due in Cash or by Paypal (no checks)
What we Send Home: *Official Purebred TICA paperwork - If the cat is purchased as a breeder,
We hold this until proof that the cat has been altered if purchased as a pet
*Health Vaccination Records
*Royal Canin ~ kitten starter pack
Bringing your new kitten home:
We suggest you set up his/her food, fresh water, and clean litter box in a bathroom or laundry room isolated
from other pets and young children. We recommend this "quarantine" period last about 2 weeks. It is
especially important that your kitten is given adequate time to settle in to his/her new home before introducing
other household pets. After your kitten has become comfortable around you and your family, we recommend
slowly introducing him/her to the layout of the house. We suggest you frequently take kitty back to the litter
box so he/she can memorize where it is at and can access it from anywhere in the home.
Please supervise all visits until you are certain your kitten is safe and comfortable.
Your kitten will come litter box trained but be aware there will be a transition period in which the kitten must
become use to your home environment so do anticipate a little retraining. Keeping the initial living space
small and litter boxes close will help eliminate potential problems.
We suggest also investing in a cat tree for your new kitten which
most come with built-in irresistible sisal scratching posts.
They are relatively inexpensive and last a very long time.
Bengals especially love residing in high places and hammocks.
Cat wheels are also wonderful options to stimulate your Bengals.
We highly recommend having a cat tree that's at least 3 feet tall
with at least one level useable for a place for the cat to sleep.
They will scratch and play and sleep on them. They recognize them
as their own special place. Cat trees can be relatively easy to make.
They should be located in a place that the family occupies
frequently, in a lower traffic area
(like a corner of a room vs. being next to a busy hallway)
and having it located near a window where they
can bask in the sun is always a bonus!
Your kitten has been eating Royal Canin kitten food, we recommend staying with Royal Canin but If you do
choose to feed your kitten different food, do expect a short period of loose stools while the kitten’s digestive
tract becomes familiar with the new food. Your kitten will be used to being handled and being in a home
environment with children but do expect your kitten to be initially cautious or timid in his/her new
environment. Given time and space, your kitten’s natural curiosity should eventually lead him/her to explore
your new home and become comfortable. This transition time period is different for every kitten.
Toys will help to calm your kitten and bring out it's playful side.
Cats are naturally carnivores and Bengals are more so due to their ALC (Asian Leopard Cat) hybrid roots.
Therefore you should feed your Bengal both wet and dry food that is high in protein and grain-free.
Wet food is essential and helps with hydration. Dehydration due to a dry food only diet will stress the Liver
and can lead to a domino effect of problems. If you have ANY questions... never hesitate to call us!
Kittens don’t eat much dry food as it’s hard on the teeth and will eat mostly just wet food. Offer your kitten
an unlimited amount of wet food. Whenever the dish is empty, offer a little more. Kittens can eat as much as
2 cans of wet food a day. By 12 weeks, the kitten should start eating more dry food. By 16 weeks, you can start
to limit the wet food down to just one can a day since the dry food should make up the remaining dietary needs.
