Welcome to Tessada's Exotics Bengal Cattery! We have a small, IN HOME Cattery located in central Connecticut. We have dedicated our young love for the Bengal to providing excellent health, quality and temperament.
The Bengal is a fairly young Breed with an exquisite history. The first Bengals were produced from a hybridization of the Asian Leopard Cat (ALC) and a domestic 'house' cat. The result was soon to be one of the worlds most popular and exciting breeds of domestic feline!
Bengals are wonderful pets and very stimulating, both mentally and visually. More often than not, these bundles of love are very energetic while maintaining some sort of 'professionalism' and not causing too much chaos! They will play fetch, walk on a leash and can even learning agility courses.
There are some reports that Bengals are not good with families. This is one of the biggest fallacies I have ever heard! One attribute of my Bengals (that I take great pride in) is their personalities! No two Bengals are the same; however, they all are great family pets. Having four young children of my own, I can confidently say that I have experienced the Bengals love and devotion to family FIRST hand! I do strongly believe that NURTURE is a much larger factor than nature in this stomach-turning accusation. Caged, isolated and afraid, is NO WAY for a Bengal Queen to live! Those that do have a MUCH higher tendency to raise fearful and shy kittens. Please keep this in mind if you are looking for a Bengal to add to your family!
