Since 2004, Michael and I have been together chasing the
American dream. In 2009 he joined the U.S. Army as an active
duty EOD Tech (Bomb Squad) while I developed a small Sewing,
Embroidery and Vinyl business. Over the years we have enjoyed
working with local feline rescues by fostering, volunteering and
assisting special needs. From an early age, I've had a mild
obsession with cats, often bringing home strays and trying to tame
ferals. After many years of experiencing different personalities
nothing caught my attention like our first Bengal Stella.
Stella came from Cocobana Bengals as a pet, from the very first
day we knew something was very different about her. The
interaction with us was almost dog like, often talking back to us
and trying to mimic the tone of our voices. As she grew older her
intelligence and personality captured our interest. She began to
fetch, sync into our moods and always wanted to be around us
including the kids. Naturally, we wanted another, especially with
her active personality in desperate need of a playmate. Then Luna
our snow came along and the two of them captured our hearts.
Luna has a very different personality, whenever a bath tub or
sink is turned on she comes running to investigate. Often sitting
on the edge of the tub watching us bathe the kids and even jumping in the shower with us. She is always nearby either playing or sitting in someone's lap. As she grew older we knew we would have to face a decision - spay or take up a long desired hobby of breeding.
Our cattery focuses on bring healthy, intelligent, loyal companions to forever homes. All of our kittens are hand raised indoors, spay/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and examined by a licensed veterinarian before going home with a 72 hour warranty for viral diseases as well as a 1 year warranty for congenital defects and genetic diseases. Liberty Bengals routinely tests for PRA (Bengal Blindness), PK-Def (Hemolytic Anemia), PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease), FIV/FeLV (Feline Immunodeficiency & Leukemia Virus) and HCM (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy - Heart Disease). Our cattery is veterinarian inspected, and received perfect scores for TICA and CFA Evaluation Program. Liberty Bengals also holds an U.S. Fish & Wildlife Import/Export License for international imports and exports.
After a litter is 8 weeks old we update the kittens' page on availability, our website is current and updated regularly. Deposits are non-refundable and considered holding fees. For pet purposes, they are $250 or $500 for breeding purposes. Breeding kittens are only sold to pre-established reputable TICA or CFA catteries. Pricing of the kittens is not established till 8 weeks of age. Picks are offered on a first come - first serve basis. Non-refundable deposits are transferable to other available kittens or held for a future litter. Liberty Bengals reserve the right to cancel reservations for any reason, in such event your deposit will be fully refunded. We do not accept personal checks, cashier checks or Paypal. We only accept credit cards via Square, cash, direct bank transfer or USPS Money Orders. All payments must process before delivery and ownership is transferred.
We do not allow visitors to visit kittens or enter their nursery but do welcome pre-scheduled visits only for our adults. This is strictly enforced for health and safety reasons. Under no circumstances are you allowed to pick up any of our adults or kittens. Kittens are delicate, not fully vaccinated and building their immune system. Their physical and mental health is our top priority. Our cattery is cleaned and sanitized daily, our breeders are our pets and loved as royal furry family.
The old saying you get what you pay for holds true especially in the realm of Bengals. Breeding is expensive and when done properly there truly isn't much profit, in fact, we have yet to profit which we're proud to admit. Each breeding pair with proper breeding rights, health screening, with showing confirmation easily starts at $15,000+, but the reassurance is priceless when it prevents future heart ache in their offspring. We hope as you visit our website you see the passion and commitment we have to every life within our home that we consider a serious hobby and deeply enjoy. As you visit other breeders write down a check list and questions you may have. Your breeder should be like a funnel, filtering out diseases in the parents before they get passed onto offspring and able to assist you with providing proof and feedback. The last thing you want is to invest yourself into a kitten that will fail to even reach adulthood due to a lack of preventive measures that is considered a standard among all ethical breeders.
If you have any questions please feel free to email us, someone will get back to you as soon as possible. Please feel free to follow us on facebook at: www.facebook.com/LibertyBengals
BEWARE OF CRAIGSLIST & INTERNET ADS! There have been many reports of fake listings using Bengal kittens as bait for scams. International imports/exports require a license, fees and specific USFW forms to be filed out months in advance. Only buy directly from a registered breeder that you can ask questions, see photos and video of your inquiry. Ask for pedigrees and health screenings, each of our queens/studs has their available test results posted publicly with hard copies provided upon request. Avoid back yard breeders, genetic testing is expensive and highly recommend in order to produce a greater possibility of healthy offspring. Breeding is an expensive task and often times the cost of testing, housing, healthcare and showing takes up most if not all profit. Liberty Bengals routinely tests for PRA (Bengal Blindness), PK-Def (Hemolytic Anemia), PKD1 (Polycystic Kidney Disease), FIV/FeLV (Feline Immunodeficiency & Leukemia Virus) and HCM (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy - Heart Disease).
