New classifieds posting option for directory members!

Along with the recent design upgrade to the Bengal Cat Directory, there is a new feature available to all directory members. You now have the ability to make classified ads to announce new litters, kittens available and adult Bengals available. At least initially, members with paid cattery listings (Featured) will be able to post classifieds ads at no charge. Members with free listing plan can purchase ads. There will be a separate page for classifieds, and most recent ads will show on the homepage as well as in the sidebar of other pages. More information on posting classified ads coming soon!

The process of thoughtful Bengal Cat breeding practices

I'm going to start sharing links to articles about Bengal Cats that I think are really interesting and informative. This article is about "outcrossing", or introducing a cat to a breeding program that is not of the same breed in order to increase genetic diversity and overall health in your lines, as well as bringing in other desired features. Article by Robyn and Jon Patterson of Quality Bengals. Check it out! https://quality-bengal-kittens.com/blog/blog/the-benefits-of-outcrossing-in-a-breeding-program

Stand up for your Bengal Cats!

Do not let extremist animal rights groups take away your ability to own hybrid breeds of cats such as Bengals, Savannahs and Chausies! If you own one of these breeds of cats, be aware that several states, including CA, are considering legislation against these breeds. Please stand up for your right to own cat breeds with a exotic/domestic hybrid background.
