New to the website. My family and I just bought a 4 month old female Bengal. We named her Asia. We can't wait to bring her home. She is at the vets recuperating from being spayed.

We have been told that Bengals like to climb and get up in high places. Should we get a "Cat Condo/Tree"?

Also what type of food should we feed her? We bought Royal Canin 34 for Kitten's. We were told that Royal Canin is a good food for Bengal's due to their problems with their GI's.

Thank you for any advice you may have to give.

Hi mybabapeas

YES! Definitely buy your new kitty a cat tree...the taller the better! We have a couple of trees around the house and all our Bengals love them.

As for the food...We feed a mix of wet & dry. We use Royal Canin dry which is left out all day and then we feed each cat 1x pouch of wet (whiskers/Felix etc) twice a day. You will know if the food is upsetting her by the messages she leave you in the litter tray :shock: Personally I've never had a problem with RC. Keep her on the kitten 34 until she is 12 months as it's a good quality food then switch her to one of the adult biscuits. However, spayed cats do put on weight easier so if you think she is getting a little over weight, talk to your vet about switching foods. I know that Royal Canin do a special low-fat biscuit and I know a few people who have switched to this once their cats have been spayed.

Congratulations for choosing to adopt a Bengal...You certainly won’t regret it :wink:

Would recommend a litter tray with a lid. Indy likes to dig his litter far and wide. At least the lid contains it. The entrance in faces the corner of the room (now he is used to where to go) so it is just the odd bit of litter in the room corner when he digs it out of the door.

One like this..

Have you brought Asia home already? How is she doing?

As for the food, I recommend raw meat (with a calcium supplement) besides dry food. To save your furniture :), I'd also recommend buying at least a scratcher of some sort but a tall cat tree would be the best choice, because bengals like to climb high.

Bengals are very active, too, so be ready to play with her and give her a lot of attention! :wink: Have a great time with the little one!
