“Time spent with cats is never wasted.” - Sigmund Freud
Welcome! RGABengals is a small in home cattery located in the "Mitten" state, Michigan. We are a family of 5; we have 3 children, Riley, Gavin and Ava (RGA). RGABengals was established in 2017. I (mom) have never been able to own a cat because of the severity of my allergies and asthma. I was told the bengal was a hypoallergenic cat, which I didn't even know existed! The bengal cat interested us not only because of their beauty or known to be hypoallergenic but also because of their unique personality. Owning these beautiful felines ignited goals within myself and cattery that I never knew existed. We took the breeding to the next level and committed ourselves to improving our lineage through specific structure and genetic testing.
Bengals are known to possess a lot of energy. Bengals are also known to be very vocal and affectionate. All of our cats and most kittens have shown these traits.
RGABengals is a dual registered cattery through TICA and CFA. We have been able to produce cats to families that cannot own animals because of the severity of their allergies. Our goal is to provide a friendly, family companion, while not only having a great temperament but also equally beautiful, happy and healthy! We strive to breed Bengals that resemble their ancestor, the Asian Leopard Cat (ALC), in most colors with acceptional temperament. If you are interested in adding a bengal to your family, we highly recommend you do your research before making a commitment. Owning a Bengal could be a commitment anywhere from 15-20 years.
Currently we can produce a few different colors of bengals. Mostly we produce Brown/black tabby. But we are also capable of achieving silver and snows (lynx and mink), and blues.
