WHY BUY FROM US?

Angeldust Bengals are stunningly beautiful. However, we are so much more. We pride ourselves in being experts in our field and endeavour to go above and beyond other breeders. Below are just some of the many reasons for choosing an Angeldust Bengal kitten.

1. Our kittens are TICA registered, have been expertly bred and come from some of the very best bloodlines in the world. Therefore, when you buy from us, you will know you are buying a purebred Bengal kitten. Angeldust Bengals has invested both the time and expense in widening our gene pool from afar with the best quality Bengals, thus ensuring that our kittens are top quality too.

2. Our cats and kittens live at home with us, as part of our family, in a stimulating environment with lots of human company. They are never caged inside or outside. This makes all the difference to how sociable and affectionate your kittens will be, and how easily they will adapt to your home environment. We are committed to exceptional animal welfare and to the happiness of our adult Bengals and kittens.

3. Before kittens leave us, they will have completed our rigorous, positive socialisation program. They will get used to all sorts of different people, including young children, and will have become used to noise, such as doorbells, kitchen appliances, vacuum cleaners etc. They will be used to all the comings and goings of a busy household. They will be used to playing with toys and will be scratch post and litter trained. They will have travelled inside a cat carrier, in a car, and will have visited the vet on four occasions. They will be able to form positive bonds with people, making their transition to their new homes as smooth and quick as possible. By the time they come to you, they will be intrepid, little explorers.

4. All our breeding cats are genetically screened for 50 genetic diseases, including Progressive Retinal Atrophy Bengal (PRA Bengal), Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency (PKdef), Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) and PRA rdAC. Therefore, we can guarantee that your kitten will not have these genetic diseases that do run in some Bengal lines.

5. All our breeding cats are blood tested negative for FIV and FeLV, so can not pass these deadly infectious diseases onto your kitten.

6. No cat will remain in our breeding program if found to have Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM). We responsibly screen all our breeding cats for this annually with, Vicky Ironside, a board certified, veterinary cardiologist that we have worked with for many years. Although, this of course, can not guarantee that your kitten will never develop heart disease in its entire lifetime, it will eliminate cats that screen positive for HCM from our breeding program, therefore eliminating heredity hypertrophic cardiomyopathies.

7. Our kittens are vaccinated with Purevax RCPch FeLV, for Feline Calicivirus, Feline viral rhinotracheitis (herpesvirus), Feline Panleucopaenia, feline leukaemia and Feline chlamydiosis at 9 and 12 weeks before they leave us. Our vaccination protocol covers much more than the basic core vaccination programme given by most breeders.

8. All our kittens are microchipped before they leave us, greatly increasing the chances of you being reunited with your pet should it be lost or stolen.

9. We have a rigorous parasite protocol. All kittens receive a broad spectrum of parasite control whilst with us, covering for fleas, ticks, ear mites, Giardia, Hookworm, Tapeworm and Roundworm. Our adults are regularly treated for all the above. We also run regular stool samples of all our Bengals to to make they are as healthy as possible and free from intestinal bacteria and parasites.

10. As a responsible Bengal breeder, all Angeldust kittens, going to their new homes as pets, are neutered before they leave us. This removes the stress and the hassle for our new owners who do not have to organise this themselves. It means that we can deal with any complications (rare), so saving new owners this worry, and it means that we are helping to combat the big problem of unscrupulous back yard breeders, as our kittens will never be targeted by them. Neutering our kittens means that females won't suffer from common womb infections, and that our Bengals are less likely to suffer from certain cancers later on in their lives.

11. Our kittens leave us at 14 weeks old (later if going abroad). This means that they are weaned naturally from mum and socialised with her and their litter mates. This means that nursing does not end abruptly. This is not just about food, but about safety, communication, the developing immune system and learning. It is cruel to end nursing too soon and causes stress and anxiety to both kittens and mum. It is worth remembering that in the wild, a kitten would never leave its mum at 8 weeks old. It simply wouldn’t survive or be able to hunt for itself.

12. Your kitten will have been thoroughly health checked by a vet four times by the time it leaves us.

13. All kittens leave with four weeks complimentary health insurance from Petplan to cover for the unexpected.

14. We are extremely knowledgeable, committed, passionate and experienced with the Bengal breed and we are available to answer your questions once you get your kitten home, or help you find the answers you need. We stay abreast of research, genetic and medical developments within our breed and work closely with vets.

15. Angeldust Bengals holds a 5 star Animal Activities License granted by Stockport Council. Our License Number is 20/00353. Since October 2018 there is a legal requirement in England that all cat breeders must have an Animal Activities License in order to sell their kittens. They must display this number on their website or social media page. It must also be displayed on any adverts they run online. This licence is council inspected and involves regular spot checks. Achieving the highest rating possible demonstrates our commitment to the highest welfare standards.

16. We are the very proud holders of the TICA outstanding cattery award and have been awarded the highest score possible, in fact not dropping a single point. This award involves being inspected by a licensed veterinary surgeon. Again, this award demonstrates our commitment to the highest welfare standards. We also uphold the TICA Outstanding Cattery Code of Ethics.
