Do You Think You Want To Purchase A Bengal?

If you would like the companionship of a Bengal in your life, please follow us on Facebook for the most up to date information on availability, or contact us at indiancreekbengals@msn.com. We breed the best to the best. Our standards are high. Not only do we look for beauty but we work with bloodlines that are proven, through generations, to be genetically sound. Though many of our cats would show well, we are keenly aware that, ultimately, we are breeding family pets, a responsibility that we take very seriously. As show cats must have friendly, outgoing temperaments, the same is true for pets.

In most cases, we have a waiting list for our kittens year round. To be on our waiting list, you must place a $200 non-refundable deposit which will later be applied to a specific kitten. Then, you will receive notice of all confirmed breeding’s along with photos and updates of each litter as it arrives. Deposits are honored in the order that they are received. When it is your turn, you will be invited to visit each litter as they become 8 weeks or older until you have selected your purrfect kitten! Once you have made your selection the selection agreement is signed by both parties and your initial deposit will be applied to the cost of the kitten you have chosen. At his time an additional payment of $500 will be required to hold the specific kitten you have chosen.

Our kittens are evaluated based upon the TICA breed standard. Most spotted kittens are priced at $1800, while marbled vary usually $1200. Longhair pet price is $1800 when available. We can usually estimate the price range that a litter will fall into but individual pricing is difficult to determine before a kitten has the chance to start maturing. A deposit may be applied to a specific litter to place you in line for first pick of this litter, but the choice of an individual kitten may take longer until we have the time to fully evaluate the quality of each individual kitten. Indian Creek Bengals reserves the right to hold any particular kitten to evaluate for our breeding program.

Occasionally we may offer one of our retired breeders or a special needs kitten to a pet approved, forever home. For this we require an adoption fee of $350 to cover all veterinarian fees for wellness exam, blood panel, updated vaccinations and all spay/neuter expenses; this must be done before the cat leaves our cattery. Kittens/cats sold with breeding rights range from $3,200 to $4,000. We may allow a breeder quality cat/kitten to be sold as a pet but may not necessarily take less than a breeder price for the cat/kitten. Good Bengals are not inexpensive. You get what you pay for.

Most kittens are ready for a responsible and loving home between 11-14 weeks of age, depending on their size and maturity. Please do not ask us to release your kitten before we feel it is ready to go. We adhere to this policy for the safety of our kittens, and the emotional stress it causes us and the new family.

All Indian Creek kittens receive age appropriate vaccinations, are wormed, and are examined by our cattery veterinarian. Also included are TICA registration papers and a standard contract, which is your health guarantee. Pet kittens are spay/neutered and receive a microchip prior to leaving the cattery, at an additional cost of $175.

For the health and safety of your pet, as well as all the other cats under our care we cannot hold your cat/kitten past their pickup date except under extenuating circumstances. Should the buyer request that the cat/kitten be held for a period beyond 7 days after this time, a boarding charge of $15 per day will be accrued, unless specific arrangement to the contrary have been made between parties. Our space is limited and we are not really set up for boarding.

In most cases, clients receive their new family member at our home. However, we are happy to help with transportation but ask to be compensated for our time and expenses. If transportation is necessary by car, delivery costs will be $15/hr plus necessary related round trip expenses (gas, tolls, parking, lodging, etc). Shipping is available throughout the continental United States. The buyer assumes the costs for all shipping related expenses (airfare, appropriate carrier, health certificate, etc) estimated to be no less than $350.

A $200 deposit will hold your place on our waiting list until it is time for you to select your unique companion. Kittens being purchased for breeding require a $500 deposit. Once your kitten has been selected A payment of $500 plus a signed deposit agreement is required to hold a specific kitten until their scheduled pickup time. It is the clients responsibility to review the contract prior to signing a deposit agreement. Payments may be transferred to a different kitten until the kitten being held reaches the age of ten weeks. After this time deposits are no longer transferable. Deposits are deducted from the overall purchase price of the cat/kitten at the time of pickup. Because we are a registered business and licensed cattery, we do have to charge a 6% state sales tax on all on cats/kittens being sold.

Deposits

Deposits are taken in good faith and are nonrefundable. Once a deposit is received you will be included on our waiting list to be assured of being offered the first possible available kitten as litters are born. Being placed on the waiting list allows you to receive updates on confirmed pregnancies, birth of litters, photos of new litters, and info when sex of the kittens are determined. As kittens reach approximately 8 weeks old, those with deposits are invited to select their purrfect pet, and an actual selection agreement is signed. At this time a payment of $500 is required. Your deposit and payment will be applied to the final cost of the kitten and will be honored in the order that it was received.
