Here we give you a brief rundown of the adoption process, as well as what to expect from our cattery. Although I tried to cover everything, there may be some things that got missed. If this is the case and you are curious, please don’t hesitate to ask!! We are always available to answer your questions.
Step 1 – Kitten Application
We require a kitten application to be filled out before reserving a kitten for you, or adding your name to the public waitlist. This is the easiest way for us to learn about you and your family, and make sure you are the right fit for a Bengal kitten! They are very active, loving felines so require lots of stimulation and don’t do well being left alone for long periods of time (if you are working or in school frequently and don’t have any other pets, we usually recommend 2 littermates).
Step 2 – Waitlist and Choosing Your Kitten
If we have kittens available on our website, you are more than welcome to inquire about them once your application is approved. However, we do not always have kittens available as we usually work with a waiting list. If there is no kitten(s) available or none that peak your interest, please consider adding your name to our public waiting list. There is a $100 fee to be added to this list and is due before your name gets added. This will give you a chance to see our upcoming litters before deciding, and also locks in the price of your kitten(s). We will notify you regarding litters that are born with your requested colors. If for some reason, within 12 months, we don’t produce any kittens of your liking, we will refund you the waiting list deposit in full.
Once you have found your kitten(s), we ask that you notify us right away. We do require a deposit to hold your kitten until they are ready for their new homes ($500 for pets and $1000 for kittens sold with breeding rights). We will reserve your kitten(s) for 48 hours without payment but after that, we unfortunately do have to move on to the next interested party. We ask that you put alot of thought and consideration into choosing your kitten(s) as they will be your close companion for the next 15+ years. Bengals bond very closely with their owner(s) and crave attention.
Step 3 – Waiting for Your Kitten
Once you have chosen a kitten, the waiting officially begins! We send our kittens home between 12 and 14 weeks but within that time frame, we allow both home visits as well as video calls. We send pictures and videos of your kitten(s) to you weekly so you can watch them grow and learn. This will also give you time to make sure your home is ready for a new fur member of the family as well as purchasing everything your kitten(s) will need. We highly recommend purchasing a Ziggydoo wheel, cat trees and scratching posts as this gives them somewhere to scratch/use their natural instincts. During this time, they will also receive their 2 sets of vaccines and deworming doses.
Step 4 – Bringing Home Your Kitten
Once your kitten reaches 12-14 weeks of age, they will be ready to go home with you! When your kitten comes home, we send them with their vet booklet (which shows the dates of the 2 vaccines and deworming doses), a copy of your signed contract, the promo code for 30 days free pet insurance and a kitten starter pack. Your Kitten starter pack includes a litter box, scoop, food/water dishes, a bag of Fromm Gold Kitten, wand toys, a scratching post or pad and LOTS more. Picture below to give you an example of our kitten packs!
Step 5 – Once Your Kitten Is Home
We will offer advice on an individual basis as each situation is different and will depend if there is animals in the home already.
Saying this, we will ALWAYS be here for the life of your kitten! 1 day, 6 months, 10 years down the road, we will always be here to offer advice and help as much as possible. We ask that our families try and send us updates monthly (if possible) so we can still watch our kittens grow. We look forward to welcoming you to the KW Bengals Family.
