Lakebay Bengals is a smal in-home "cattery" where all our cats are raised as part of the family and live in our house with us. Lakebay Bengalsd was started as a way to have an exquisite animal become a therapeutic pet for those with disabilities. We are proud to have Autistic children that help make these animals the best well socialized animals around. We do not mass produce, we do not raise our cats in cages, and we do make sure each and every one of our Bengals are well-socialized, well-adjusted and integrated as part of our family. This is
a hobby that my family loves and enjoys.
Our Bengals all come from the top champion lines in the country combining the best qualities of our beloved bengal; great health, fun, friendly, and outgoing character, beautiful wild look with clear brilliant silky patterns! We usually have Bengal kittens available in Brown/Rosetted, Snow, and both Tri Color Silver Marble and Tri Color Brown Marble patterns. We love bengals and are enjoying our never-ending adventures with them and our quest to create brilliant rare examples of the breed.
We keep our Bengal kittens in our home with us, until they are at least 12 weeks old, to avoid behavioral problems associated with kittens being separated from their mother too soon. By that time, they will have had their shots, been dewormed, been fully weaned from their mother, begun eating solid food and using the litter box. We also want to ensure that our kittens are socialized at that point to interact with their new family, including children and pets.
All of our cats are registered with TICA.
