Hi Caroline,

We don't vaccinate for Leukemia. I think the 3 in 1 flu vaccine is enough when they are going to be indoor cats.

Let us know what you decide to do. Also don't be afraid to ask questions regarding registration papers and a signed pedigree for your kittens.
They should be happy and willing to answer anything you need to know :)

GOOD LUCK

Thanks Wildside
Don't know what to do about letting them go out when they get older,I will be scared to let them out but hubby says we have to let them out. Our other cats have always gone out with no problems. But they arn't Bengals, if we do let them out would we need the leukema vaccine then.

We give vaccs which covers them for Cat Flu, Enteritis, Chlamydia and Leukaemia (4 in 1) at 9 weeks and a futher booster at 12 weeks.....normally they're only sleepy and off their food for the rest of the evening after their jabs.....they're also wormed sometime during this time after they recover fully (hence why they only go at 13-14 weeks)

Some breeders don't give the Leukaemia jab....they might have their own reasons behind this but we feel is essential so we can sleep easier at night knowing our babies are fully protected, the new owners might not be aware that they really need it if they are itntending to let their cats out at night .....although the Leukaemia jab is only really needed if your cat goes outdoors!

We only place our kittens in indoor homes only, however we give still give it just in case they get out or the new owners go against our wishes and let them roam. (sounds harsh but its their choice at the end of the day)

No matter what age they get their jabs it will knock them off their feet a bit.....even as an adult when its booster time they will feel a tad groggy for a day or so!

Hi again its me.
before we seen these kittens we were going to get a couple more,but they are not due to be born till 22nd April,and the breeder also said we could have two at 8 weeks,and she also took £50 of the prize for buying two together.This one even said we could view them at a week old.But then we got told about these kittens,and I couldn't wait to see them. The breeder who we were first going to get them off is on the breeder of Bengals list.

:lol: Hi again me! :lol:


We don't allow anyone to view our kittens till they're atleast 4 weeks old, but thats just they way we do things here.

To be honest there's nothing really to see until they start running around, sure they're soooo cute at 1 week old but we feel it's just putting them at unnecessary risk from infections and also it would no doubt upset mum if we had strangers coming in so soon after birth....Queens are extremely protective of newborns, all our girls get very anxious and will only allow Heidi or myself near their babies untill they're atleast 2 weeks old....even after then they are still very wary.

But as I've said this is just the way we like to do things! :wink:

We also give a reduction of £50 off each kitten when buying more than one....so this sounds quite normal practice in all fairness.

You said they're on the bengal list......well theres lots of lists out there, The only lists I would trust are the main club lists!

To be members of these clubs you must sign a code of ethics which I've put below as documented on the BCCGB website under the title of "code of ethics".

Especially note rules 3 & 8
