Poor website, no HCM tesing on any of her cats, PKdef on current queens only, badly worded contract........

.....enough to make me want LOTS of answers.

In answer to you question...we bought our beloved Pi from Snownybengals 11 mos ago and we could not have found a better Bengal. The breeder Andrea is a very lovely person and her kittens are healthy, socialized and have very sweet temperments. Mother and father can be viewed and are tested pk def neg My husband and I are purchasing a second spotted baby from Snownybengals due home on 19 May 2014. My experience with this breeder has only been positive in every way.

I see the breeder is going to HCM test her Bengals, just make sure she tests the parents of your kitten, before you take it home. The mother is half sister to an HCM positive cat.

OK just a guess perhaps but you are taking home your kitten in 19th May and the last litter born was in February from Theluji Tigerlilly.

The sire and dam are posted on the site. I hope the breeder test her cats for HCM ASAP!! I would imagine it's very risky breeding a queen with HCM in her immediate lineage! I personally would never rest easy with buying a kitten who has a great chance of HCM. The fact is all of our cats could have HCM at some point , it is in the breed. However if a person decides to breed these cats they should never breed from HCM positive lines and should have a cardiologist perform testing on their breeding cats. It is the ONLY way HCM can be prevented. It's the lives of our beloved pets at stake!!!! Not the breeders finances!!!

Edit: that statement is not directed towards you lifeofpi!!! Other than the parents being listed of course! I just get extremely frustrated with people breeding cats without health screening!! Recently there has been an alarming number of post regarding bengals either being diagnosed or dying suddenly of HCM. It is disturbing to know that breeders charge such great amounts for their kittens without testing! You can get a kitten for close to the same price from screened parents!! Why take the gamble???

Aslong as one parent is pkdef normal then the worst any kitten can be is a carrier which would never affect a pet bengal. I can see queens and stud all as normal though....or am I missing certain pages.

Hcm screened absolutely needs to be done.....and well some folks aren't that great at websites but all the information IMO is there....pedigrees info photos etc :smile:

hi all I purchased a cat from Theluji bengals a couple of years ago. I purchased him because he was from NON SILVER LINES so chances were low for HCM. Which cat is it that has HCM that junglrose was talking about. thanks

I can't answer your question to Elaine but I can say non silver lines hold exactly the same risk for HCM as Silver lines. HCM is not colour biased. This is a myth. Our silver bengals are not at any more risk than our browns or snows or blues etc. If a breeder tells you they have low risk lines and do not need to screen their cats I would run a million miles. All breeders need to screen for HCM.

We got our two beautiful girls from SnowyBengals over a year ago. They are in excellent health and have the most amazing personalities.
