Bengal Springs Cattery — 3 Comments

  1. We are seeing a specialist on Wednesday but research tells us we are screwed. Such an unfortunate event. I put the blame on myself for trusting some hillbilly in spring hill ” Angie Nichols” and paying $700 dollars rather than the $1200 price other catteries offered. I guess I felt safe seeing his medical records and getting a 3 gen pedigree. In the end we are glad we got to have 4 happy years with Lincoln and maybe more to come. We will not give up on such a great personality and loving friend.

  2. We purchased “Lincoln” a beautiful Bengal from Angie in spring hill. Lincoln was born on 8/29/11. We just got back from the vet and he has a genetic disorder and chronic kidney failure at only age 4!!! We are heart broken and although Angie’s number is no longer in service, rest assured I will be contacting you.

    • Thank you, Tom, for commenting. It doesn’t surprise me to be honest. I’m sure that she is not the only Breeder of the Bengal cat to fail to ensure that the cats that they breed are healthy. It is said that the Bengal cat originates from about four individual cats. What I’m saying is that the entire population of Bengal cats in the world come from four different cat or something like that as I recall. That in itself is not a very healthy sign because it hints at inbreeding and inbreeding results in ill health because of depressed immune systems and as you mention genetic disorders. One of the well-known Bengal cat genetic disorders is a condition called “Bengal nose“. This is just one example.
