Health & Socialization
At Jensayla Bengals our goal to raise healthy and well socialized kittens. Our kittens are all born and raised inside our home. Bengal kittens are handled by members of our household daily to aid in their recognition of human touch. When they start becoming mobile Mom and kittens are moved to our designated Bengal kitten room where the kittens will be able to safely gain their independence under the watchful eye of their mother. We have two little girls, ages 5 and 6, that assist in socializing all of our Bengal babies.
Health is always at the top of our priorities. All of our breeding cats are genetically tested through UC Davis Veterinary Laboratory for the PK Deficiency status as well as their Bengal PRA status. These tests gives us the information that we need to never produce a kitten that can develop PK Deficiency or that could go blind from PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy) We also screen the hearts of all our breeding cats every 12-18 months beginning at one year of age for HCM (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy). This screen is done using ultrasound equipment by a Board Certified Veterinary Cardiologist. We also have a very structured parasite control plan to ensure we have done everything possible to deliver kittens to their new families free from parasites.
