We are a small family who are obsessed with bengals (based in Penistone, Sheffield) and our journey started 16 years ago when we discovered this amazing breed. Our first Bengal, Benji, was a wedding gift to each other and we have never had a Bengal-free house since! Our bengals are our pets and live with us in the family home, having access to an enrichment exercise area outside during the day.
All of our cats have tested normal for PRA & PK/Def and we have a full HCM screening program in place to insure the health of our cats. Health certificates are available to view.
Stelmaria is our registered prefix with The International Cat Association(TICA) as well as being members of the Bengal Cat Association and the UK Bengal Cat Club.

Yes! They are highly intelligent, particularly on an emotional level. Like any animal, the more positive experiences they have had in their critical early weeks of life (12-14 weeks) then the more confident and well adjusted they will be in their forever home. Our bengals love chasing each other, running with our dog, playing with our son and snuggling with us when sleepy.
Bengals from reputable breeders will come with a 5 generation pedigree, health tested bloodlines and neutered (if they leave as pets). You should expect to pay more for any purebred animal because you have more knowledge about their bloodlines, health, behaviour, social ability. Bengals can cost anywhere from £950-1600 and more if you are buying with the right to show and/or breed.
