1;How many bengals do you have?
2;what are their sexes?
3;how many bengals in one house do you feel is too many lol?

i ask these questions as my girl gave birth to 5, 11 days ago, 3 boys 2 girls, we bred her to have free kittens of our own basically a friend had a male and it was such a wonderful opportunity to miss out on ( she and kittens are going to be done asap).
i'm not a breeder but i am thinking 6 bengals might be a little too much after joining here and reading hundreds of posts. we are a big family of 9 and use to a hectic non stop life and can give them a huge amount of love and attention. But im wondering how will 6 get alone? do you think it might be too risky?
also for religious reasons we cant sell them on, so does anyone know the safest route to rehome a bengal without asking for money, IF we ever had to rehome any of them.

thanks again Jade.

p.s does anyone know how to upload a pic? im dying to show my babies off!!!

Hey, wow that's a lot of bengals lol.

The main issue I can see happening is with the 3 boys, because they are litter brothers they will already have sorted a pecking order as to who is boss whilst they are little but that can all change and shift around when they all hit sexual maturity. You could end up with some posturing and even fighting. The females should (touch wood) be ok together it's more the boys that could be a worry as I know some people don't like litter mates together and some are fine with it.

Boys and girls together are usually fine, girls together are fine it's just the 3 boys that may cause an issue in the future and major fighting.

The other issue I see in the future is having a lot of bengals at the same age means a lot of vet bills for elderly cats at the same time which could be too much for your family. Have a think if you could afford to have 5/6 cats with kidney disease. Although I do think you could be OK with having a fund for them all that you put into every month just incase which can help you out in the future.

Where are you from? Someone here may have some details of a good rescue place you could give a kitten to as I do personally feel you are better off giving a kitten/cat away or rescue than selling anyway, selling can sometimes give the wrong type of people and as you want the cat to go to a great home try contacting some Bengal rescues in your area who could really help you with vetting and rehoming a cat if the worst happens.

Good luck with all the little ones, I know you want to do what's best for them all and I'm hoping it all goes ok for you.

As for photos as we all want to see your little ones we're suckers for kitten cuteness

Such little cuties!!!! I have ONE bengal and that's one too many for me!!! I think as long as you have the room for that many and you have the funds to feed and take care of them and all the vet bills, you can have as many as you want!!! Large broods benefit from a large outdoor enclosure as well. I can barely handle on bengal, much less another! Enjoy your new bundles of joy.

They are soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cute! Keep as many as you are comfortable with. Make sure to get them all fixed. And I agree that an opportunity for an outside play area would help immensely.

There are a lot of great enclosures if you search Google images for them. Raiden's is on our deck, covered with translucent panels, he has a cat tree, bed, litter box. We need to add some shelves to the sides so he can be up even higher -- it's really a never-ending project. But he loves being out there. So much great information online. Having it attached to your home and using a cat door so they can go in and out whenever they want is a must!

I have 2 and they stress me out sometimes! I could probably handle a 3rd, but any more than that and I would lose my mind! They are so clever and independent. Good luck whatever you decide!

I have two brothers, and I think it is enough. They are sweet without wars between them, but they are still young (9 months). But i haven't any comparison with more cats...
