It makes me so sad reading about the backyard breeders, or ones that are in it just for the money!! These are not just a source of income, they are little lives.. little family members!!! After reading some of the terrible experiences, I wanted to share some positive!

I had gotten Archer from Cazpurr Bengals - http://www.cazpurrbengalcats.com
She was amazing to work with! I was fortunate enough to meet one of the other meowmies that picked up his sister, and she was just as happy with the experience as I was!
I was fortunate enough that she lives 3 miles from me!!! I was able to go and visit Archer twice a week and play with all of the kittens. They are all very well socialized there, I never once could smell "cat" when visiting her home (It is very tidy and very clean!), and she is just so kind! I still talk to her once a week, and she is always willing to answer any questions I have and help out in any way she can!

I am getting DaVinci from Zawieco - http://zawieco.com or http://www.snowbengalkittensforsale.com (for her snows)
So far I have been talking to Lori for a month, and she is just as sweet as could be! You can really tell by talking to her how much she loves her fur babies! She sends me pictures every week (Since she is in Florida and I am in Arizona) of my little boy. She has answered every question I have and then some! She is very knowledgeable about the snow bengals! From speaking with her, I feel very re-assured that my baby is in good hands and very well looked after and loved!!! I am very excited to meet her and my little boy!

The vast majority of breeders are GREAT breeders and follow all guidelines put out by TICA. They want happy customers. I read a ton of bad reviews on certain breeders -- so you just have to do your research. I can't believe you couldn't find a breeder that you don't have to fly down and retrieve your baby. I'm scared to click on your link as it means more work finding more cats and doing their F-generations. I got stuck on Vennvoyagee yesterday and still am not finished! LOL

There are not as many people that are doing the snows. The ones that do have them occasionally of course did not have any litters and were expecting in the next month or two..
I would rather have a companion for Archer sooner than later.
The closest one was in Vegas area, and I was kind of holding off to see if her snow girl would have a SLP, but she had all browns.

I've noticed the same actually with Lynx point snows not being as common as they once where, there really seems to be a push atm to breed for Minks (maybe because the rosettes are clearer?). I personally love minks as well as I used to have one the Aqua eyes are stunning. Over here in the UK everyone seems to be breeding for Silvers or Browns. I've found more Lynx points seem to come from silver breeding programs than anything else lately.

I guess certain colours go in and out of popularity.

I honestly didn't even know about the snows until I saw the SLP at the TICA show. I knew about silvers since my breeder has both.

I see on the FB pages for available snow kittens, they are all out of Russia...

But I agree I really love the colors of the SLP and mink. The aqua colored eyes against the charcoal mask is to die for!!! I have a soft spot for the charcoals, if you couldn't tell :P

Ive always loved my seal Lynx points and minks I think it's because growing up I always wanted a Siamese( my aunt had an old type one) and then I fell in love with Tonkinese (I actually almost got a Tonk when I was getting my first Bengal but due to limited litters and well Mina came up and I couldn't say no and I've had bengals ever since). May still get a Tonk in the future though I really want a Blue Tabby Mink or a Blue Tabby colour point one. I admit I have a soft spot for cats with Blue or Aqua eyes

I really love my Silver SLP boy for his colours I think it's because with his Snow White coat, silver/cool brown markings and dark blue eyes he's super striking he's a very pale no tarnish silver snow though so far. I hadn't seen one before this year and really fell in love with the colour lol I wasn't sure at one point if I had two silver snows but Arya is looking a lot more SLP since her coat started properly clearing and she's darkened a lot.

Other than my snows and silver snows I do have a soft spot for silver charcoals and silver smokes
