DELUXE CATTERY
THE STORY BEHIND THE NAME & THE REASON WHY WE DO, WHAT WE DO.

The name Deluxe comes from a verbal mosaic of both my children’s first names, Delany and Luxem. We perceive each of our fur progeny here at Deluxe Cattery Bengals as one of our own children and indeed the very name of the cattery supports it as so.

I had always kept cats. Indeed, they were a big part of my growing up and have maintained a relatively constant presence throughout my life. Even when I first ventured out of my parents home and started a family with my wife (Melody), a cat – a beautiful chocolate seal point Birman boy going by the name Zeus, was the first thing we sought for companionship. In 2013, that year heralded in the return of breast cancer for my wife, after an initial scare in 2005, and a multitude of other health woes. An anxiousness and depression stemming from the cancer and subsequent treatments, led my wife and I to seek the comfort of what was familiar to us and the unconditional love that came from fostering kittens and homeless cats. We found it quite simple really, I loved them and in turn they loved us back.

A passion was found, when a retired and spayed Bengal queen found her way into our home. Needless to say, she never left.

Eclipse now resides with my parents, but does return to visit us from time to time. When she does, she absolutely reigns supreme over our cattery and helps us keep our entire family, the furred and not, all in line!



OUR BREEDING PROGRAM
AN OUTLINE OF OUR STANDARDS AND PRACTICE.

To us here at Deluxe Cattery Bengals, breeding for good genetics and temperament is absolutely paramount. All our breeding cats are tested for genetic Bengal Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA-b) and PK Deficiency (Erythrocyte Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency) and are regularly vetted to ensure supreme health ( FIV, FeLV, and FIP negative) before joining and whilst in our breeding programs. We also perform coat colour testing, so we can properly plan and have more control over the litters born. In this way, we can breed to meet requests of potential new adoptive families and ensure that the majority of our kittens have loving homes to go to even before they are born.

We have been blessed to find great mentors, both here and interstate, and the Deluxe Cattery breeding program works in and with these other selected breeders, to improve and maintain the good standards already obtained within the breed. We hope that if you are reading this as an individual looking to adopt or reserve one of our kittens that you find this website informative and that you would feel free to ask of us any questions that you might have about our Bengals or the breed in general.

Many thanks and we hope to hear from you soon.


ADOPTING A DELUXE CATTERY BENGAL
HOW TO COMMENCE, WHERE WE ADVERTISE & THE GENERAL PROCESS.

Families looking to adopt a Deluxe Cattery Bengal kitten can notify the Cattery by completing our Reservation Form. Submission of the form and payment of a partial NON-REFUNDABLE deposit, is the easiest and most certain way to ensure first pick (in order of reservation) of kittens when they are next due.

Customers that have sent a deposit will have their name placed on our reservation list. Their position on this list will be determined by the date the money is deposited into our account. The entire deposit is then applied toward the cost of the kitten.

Upon a litter being born, customers are contacted in the order of reservation. At that time, the customer has the option of determining whether they will choose a kitten from that litter or wait for another. If the customer chooses to defer their adoption, their name remains on the reservation list in the same position previously held.

Deluxe Cattery Bengals aim to breed our kittens to meet our customers demands. We hope to have the majority of our kittens securely homed before they are born. Should there be available kittens born still seeking their forever homes, these kittens will be advertised on our website on our Available Kittens page, social media platforms and through the utilization of various other advertising means as the Cattery sees fit. 
Our Bengal Leopards are BIG! We have some of the largest Bengal kittens you will find. They are more than just Leopards, they are part of our family, and treated like our children. They all have their own rooms for sleeping, but still, have free run of the house during the day.

WE NEVER CAGE OUR BENGAL ADULTS AND OUR BENGAL KITTENS! They are trained and socialized from an early age to interact together. When Bengal kittens are born, the mother and father both take part in the raising of their young. As the Bengal kittens get older, they interact with all the Bengals in our home. We work together as a family unit to create a stimulating, loving environment for all our Bengals. Then when you select one of our Bengal kittens for sale, you get the best!

Above all, we hope that each kitten is born and adopted to a family that will love him/her as much as we do.


We strive to breed for SIZE, QUALITY, BEAUTY, HEALTH, TEMPERAMENT and INTELLIGENCE. We work with our Bengals on a daily basis so when you purchase your Bengal kittens from Deluxe Cattery Bengal you get the best we offer.
