Know the signs, ask questions.
Before purchasing a kitten or putting any money down:
Save yourself "Stress, Time, Money and Heart Break", know how to avoid Scammers;You should always make sure that the breeder is updated and shown on at least one organization website such as TICA.org or CFA.org, some breeders may have there certification but may have been rejected or kicked from an Association due to many reasons. Be aware and know you are getting a real breeder and they are not claiming false advertisement.
Call the Cattery Registry Agency to verify they are active and in good standing.
Unfortunately not all breeders are ethical, this isn't limited to Bengal Breeders ether. Be sure the Breeder isn't all talk and they can provide proof of documentation. Whether you choose a kitten from FairyTailBengals or some where else, make sure you know what your getting and that they do the proper steps in taking care of their kittens/Cats!
Be aware of "Dog and Cat Mills". Trust your guts, if the Breeder is avoiding you on showing you there Cattery, chances are they are not properly taking care of it, or potentially your Kitten you would be buying from them. Maybe the Breeder only has a FaceBook but Not Registered with a Cat Association so you wont be getting any "certification title" of that kitten or the "pedigree" on where it came from. Maybe you will see Kitten pictures advertised but offers No Information on them only, "We have Kittens, and asks/tells you to put a "Deposit" quickly or ASAP or only contacts you through "text or email and avoids calls". Buy at your own risk.
A Kittens Price shouldn't be your only concern. Always make sure the Breeder provides a Contract for some kind of guarantee and what the Cattery services offer and entail on your Kitten. Keep in mind nothing is 100% guaranteed in life so please use your best judgement on any Breeders Contracts, read thoroughly, all Contracts are different, they are at least used for some kind of warranty on protecting you as a Buyer and the Seller.
Other Breeders might suggest a friend Breeder they know or themselves, just because someone suggest someone doesn't mean that they are good breeders. It's up to you to do the research, gather proper information, ask the questions, see the signs and be informed. Take your time in finding the Kitten right for you, don't rush your decision.
