Here at Tarantela Bengals, we have been breeding Bengal Cats since 1997 and are members of TICA, The Bengal Cat Club of Great Britain, The Bengal Cat Club and the GCCF.
We are dedicated to breeding the very best Bengal cats from the very best bloodlines.
The development of this beautiful breed is our main aim. We regularly introduce new lines to further our breeding programme and have some superb bloodlines to offer breeders who want something ‘special’ as well as kittens for showing and quality pets.
We are specializing in F3 and F4’s (third and fourth generation from the Asian Leopard Cat) and have recently added a silver rosetted F2 girl and a seal mink snow F2 girl to our breeding programme as well as a beautiful seal lynx snow charcoal boy. We breed large and well defined donut rosetted seal lynx snow Bengals and occasional silver and seal mink snows, as well as fully outlined donut rosettes on our brown/black Bengals with golden glittered pelts and many with whitened tummies. We breed Bengals with large frames, long sleek bodies, a wilder head type and soft clear glittered pelts, with rich colours and extreme contrast. Tarantela are producing some of the best snow kittens in the UK with large rosetting, wild looks and better definition than many snows have at present.
We have never bred Bengals to make a profit, but use any surplus money from kitten sales to reinvest into our breeding programme and to make sure our cats have the best accommodation to enjoy.
Our kittens are well socialised because they get lots of attention and are reared with love.
From 2009 we started a breeding programme for the fabulous Savannah, they are a cross between an African Serval and a domestic cat. Savannahs have tall and slender bodies, large pointed ears and striking black spots and great temperaments. They look incredibly graceful. It is one of the newest breeds in the world.
The first Savannahs were bred in the USA in 1986. We were one of the first breeders in the UK. We imported our original foundation cats from the USA to develop our breeding programme. We do not intend to outcross our Savannahs, we want to retain the look of the wild.
Our cattery was designed and built by us with the intention of providing maximum room and comfort for our cats. Our large cabins are heated and have lots of natural light.
Our cattery is protected by a recently installed CCTV system.
Our cats spend lots of time in our home as well as the cattery where they can enjoy the sunshine, and have plenty of space to run around. So have the best of both worlds and get lots of love and attention from us. They are part of our family.
