Hey all, I came across this breeder very early on when i was first looking for a bengal. I questioned her about her price due to the quality of her cats. (She's charging $950.00 per kitten...Im sorry but does those kittens look like a 900 dollar bengal to you?

I asked her if she would be willing to compromise on the price since i thought she was over charging and she cursed me out and blocked me. LOL.

I ended up buying my bengal from a very nice woman just a hour away from me for only $800...and she looks way better than these kittens..lol

It appears they only use Facebook and they do not have a regular website. I'm only an expert on charcoal bengals because Raiden is one. The pelt is darker and there's not as much contrast with the rosettes. Their charcoals look fine to me. They claim to be TICA registered. As we tell people in this forum, it's always best to visit the breeder and see the accommodations and the cats for yourself. That being said, you've now gotten yourself a bengal at a price you were willing to pay, and you're pleased with the quality of her. That's all that's important at this point. We always appreciate a heads up on other breeders.

Congratulations on your new baby.

I am a breeder, not bengals, and I would be extremely offended if someone wanted to compromise on price. My kittens are priced at a set price, none negotiable and I would not sell to anyone who tried to barter the price down. Sorry.

I think you just move on if you are not happy with the price.

This breeder seems to have some beautiful rosetted bengals. The charcoal ones look great although I don't know much about charcoal. Seems a legit cattery. Not all breeders have cheap kittens and usually there is a difference in price between pet and show quality.

She has multiple cats she breeds for different colors and they seem to be of varying quality (when it comes to show standards). I saw pics of some silvers that were gorgeous but had a lot of ticking, which isn't desired for showing. The silver kittens looked just like my Raj who is a stunning adult silver with a little tarnish and quite a bit of ticking. Her charcoals are nice looking as well but I don't know as much about them. Seems she has some adults and kittens with single spots or arrowhead rosettes and some with more open rosettes, which I'm sure just depends on the pairing of parents.

To me, her rates are a bit pricey but I wouldn't be a good judge of that. It depends where you're located and here in central Missouri our prices are a bit lower, which is somewhat effected by the fact that our state is known for kitten and puppy mills and backyard breeders. My three boys are all of similar quality to this breeder's and they were between $500-650 each.

I think pricing depends on what state you are in also. When I got my kitten she was cheaper then most of the Bengals I saw for sale I saw the parents when I went to get her she was 200$ cheaper then the ones I saw but I did go to one breeder that did say she does go down a bit with some people if they can't afford it (she's just a nice person, she has been breeding for awhile). The breeder I purchased Cheetie Lee from was from another state she had moved her recently so I think her prices were lower. This year her prices have been raised 200-400$ more. I asked what the difference was from since the new kittens had the same parents. She told me that people where questioning their breeding since they were so low.

A lot of the breeders drop their prices as the litter gets older as well. If the only have one kitten left from the litter and nobody seems that interested, they may drop the price to move on to the next mating. I know Raiden's price dropped $100 when he was 10 weeks old because he was the only kitty left from the litter.

Pretty sad people have to come to an online forum to start drama...You can clearly go to the Tica website and see Tripleabengals is a registered cattery.Not everyone needs a fancy website to advertise..I deal with many emails and phone calls don't recall this person but I am glad none of my babies went to this person!!

Welcome to our forum, but you have resurrected an extremely old post. I realize most breeders now use Facebook only, however I find that only limited information is available on a Facebook page and much prefer an actual website. Just because one is a TICA registered cattery doesn't mean it's a great breeder. TICA cannot begin to regulate the thousands of breeders they have listed and only after investigating complaints can they do anything about it.

Feel free to join in the discussions here. We don't have a bengal breeder that currently posts and we do get asked a lot of questions.
