~ Exquisite, Robust, Loving, Entertaining, Intelligent, Spoiled, Bengal Cat Companions ~
"PRICING & ADOPTION INFO."
If you are looking for a Bengal that is a "WALKING WORK OF ART" look no further!
We are a proud accredited member and TRIPLE registered cattery of TICA, CFA, REFR feline associations!
Here at Hot Spotz Bengals we strive to produce cutting edge Bengals with that "WoW" factor staying true to the wild look of the Asian Leopard Cat but with the affectionate & gentle nature of the domestic cat! Our selective breeding program for over 20 years is devoted to the promotion and preservation of the Bengal breed of domestic cat and by adopting one of our amazing Bengal kittens you can be assured of a precious baby with a stunning wild exotic appearance of their ALC ancestor that is healthy, loving, and an entertaining family companion for many years! They have an amazing temperament, guaranteed great health and the fabulous markings that every great kitten should possess.
We are cared for by UC Davis and Optimal Selection by Wisdom Panel, PCR testing by IDEXX and Zoologix, a DVM Board Certified Cardiologist Doctor, and a Veterinary Hospital. All of our cats in our breeding program are periodically genetic health screened & tested for, but is not limited to; FIV/FeLV (Feline Immunodeficiency & Leukemia Virus), PK Deficiency (Hemolytic Anemia), PKD1 (Polycystic Kidney Disease), PRA-b (Bengal Blindness), and HCM (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy-Heart Disease), at appropriate age or by parentage and various parasites. There is a lot of time and expenses involved in raising high quality pedigreed Bengal cats, more than most people realize. Our exquisite Brown, Silver, Snow, Silver Snow SBT (studbook tradition) Champion bloodline, pedigreed, TICA registered Bengal kittens, are individually evaluated and priced accordingly. Those that meet the Bengal standard, have the best markings, pattern, coloration, conformation, and personality are our top-quality Bengal kittens and therefore are the most expensive. Kittens go through many stages as they develop, so we are continually re-evaluating them as they grow. Therefore, we reserve the right to re-assess them as they develop and price accordingly. Once someone has placed a deposit on a priced kitten however, the price is locked in on that kitten and will not increase even if it develops beyond our expectations.
OUR FINAL QUOTED PRICES ARE FIRM. WE TYPICALLY CANNOT QUOTE THE FINAL PRICE ON A KITTEN UNTIL THE KITTEN IS AT LEAST 6-8 WEEKS OF AGE AND HAS BEEN PROPERLY EVALUATED. PRIOR TO THAT, WE MAY GIVE AN ESTIMATED PRICE RANGE FOR A SPECIFIC KITTEN OR LITTER, BUT IT MAY INCREASE/DECREASE DEPENDING ON HOW THE KITTEN DEVELOPS.
PRICING VARIES DEPENDING ON THE QUALITY OF THE KITTEN:
GENDER, AGE, PEDIGREE, PATTERN/MARKINGS, CONTRAST & COLOR, COAT CLARITY, GLITTERED PELT, OVERALL STRUCTURE, TEMPERAMENT, QUALITY TO THE CONFORMATION OF THE BENGAL BREED STANDARD AND WHETHER YOU DESIRE A "PET" OR A "SHOW QUALITY" COMPANION KITTEN WITH A SPAY/NEUTER CONTRACT, OR A "BREEDER/SHOW" KITTEN WITH FULL REGISTRATION RIGHTS.

We consult with other responsible breeders and believe that our prices are in the current market range for the quality of kittens that we produce. Basically...you get what you pay for! We have been involved with and responsibly breeding the Bengal breed for over 20 years and we spare no expense on the environment, food, time & socialization, health screenings and veterinary care we provide our Bengals, as it is our labor of love! Before we even breed a litter, we need to do a variety of health screenings and tests on our breeding cats and also there are vaccinations, food, litter, toys, cat trees, bedding, disinfecting supplies, cleaning, administrative costs, etc...all before a litter is born. Plus, there is the enormous amount of time we spend socializing, caring, and taking photographs of our kittens so that when the kitten leaves our home, we know that it was healthy for their future families.
Our kittens come with the following:
- Healthy, socialized, pre-spoiled, raised underfoot
- Champion bloodlines
- Comprehensive health guarantee including a congenital defect clause
- Health record
- Age-appropriate core vaccinations & dewormed
- Vet examined and cleared before going home
- Photoshoots (approx. 5, 8, 11 weeks old)
- Raised on a top quality, high protein, grain free diet for the best health
- Nails trimmed
- Litter box and scratching post trained
- Kitten care information guide
- Goody bag with food, toys, blanket
- Embrace Pet Insurance
- Closed Cattery- born and raised in a safe, illness free, home environment (never exposed to any cats outside of our home)
- Parents have their proper health screenings & testing done
- TICA registration certificate (upon proof of spay/neuter) and born from TICA registered parents
- Continuing advice and support from us for the life of your cat
It is a very expensive hobby to responsibly commit to breeding Bengals 24/7, but it is for the love and passion of educating people & improving this amazing cat breed! You might see Bengal kittens priced much lower on some online pet sites-Buyer beware! You may pay less for the kitten initially but realize you may be spending a whole lot more on vet bills and possible heartache in the end.
If our kitten prices are not in your budget - we occasionally have retired adults offered for a lower price & we also suggest contacting Great Lakes Bengal Rescue (greatlakesbengalrescue.com) for a wonderful Bengal!

WE OPERATE A CLOSED CATTERY TO KEEP ILLNESS OUT!
This (deposit) wait list is for those who are genuinely interested in purchasing a kitten from Hot Spotz Bengals Cattery and is intended to reserve a person's spot on the list. A $300 deposit for a Pet Companion or a Breeder/Show is required to be placed on this list and is non-refundable. Once you have chosen your kitten, the deposit will be applied towards the total purchase price of the kitten chosen. The first name on the list will get first pick of the available kittens and so on and so forth. Only if said kitten becomes unfit for sale can the deposit be applied towards another kitten/litter.
Kittens are evaluated privately by the breeder for the first approximately 6-8 weeks of age for potential breeding and/or show use. We then contact our waiting list deposit holders by order of their deposit received and specifications desired and you are given two (2) days to make your selection and respond. Our available kittens page is updated frequently. If you decide to pass and wait for another litter, you will remain on the list and be placed at the bottom of the wait list, your deposit will remain valid to be applied towards the purchase price of your selected kitten. If you decide you no longer want a kitten or we are unable to contact you, your deposit is non-refundable and you will be removed from the wait list. After you reserve your chosen kitten, the contract is then signed or upon kitten pick up. The agreed upon price is then locked in for you. Kittens are ready to go to their new homes at approximately 12-16 weeks of age. It will be at our discretion at what age each individual kitten is ready to move to its new home, in the best interest of the kitten's well-being. Once you have placed a deposit on a kitten, we will send updates & new photos periodically for you to watch their amazing development growing up here at our home.

A deposit and signed contract are required on all kittens/cats purchased from Hot Spotz Bengals. A $300/Pet or $500 Breeder/Show non-refundable or transferable deposit reserves your chosen kitten. No kittens are held without a deposit. The deposit will be applied towards the total purchase price of the kitten chosen.

Once someone has placed a deposit on a priced kitten the price is locked in on that kitten and will not increase even if the kitten develops beyond our expectations! Please note in some cases, several people may be interested in a kitten! If so, we cannot guarantee the kitten is "yours" until we receive your deposit! This is regardless of how long we have been talking or emailing you. To avoid disappointment, if you are really interested in a kitten, we would urge you to put in your deposit early.
PAYMENT PLAN: We offer a payment plan for our clients. If you would prefer to pay over-time instead of all at once, we can set up an individualized Payment Plan to suit your needs. The down payment of $300/pet or $500 breeder/show is placed first to reserve the kitten then the remaining balance is divided into payments that are due either weekly or every other week. How much is paid per payment depends on the amount of time that you need, agreed upon on an individual basis. The final balance is due 2 weeks (14 days) before the kitten is released if paying with a personal check or by Cash or Zelle when the kitten is picked up.
We do reserve the right to refuse to sell you the kitten at any time before the kitten’s ownership is transferred without cause. If circumstances warrant this action, we will refund your deposit in full.
RESERVATION DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE OR TRANSFERABLE AND ARE IN GOOD FAITH OF FURTHER PURCHASE FROM OUR CATTERY.
TO PLACE YOUR DEPOSIT PLEASE SEE OUR PAYPAL BUTTON BELOW OR VISIT THE 'DEPOSIT/PAYMENT' PAGE.
In the best interest of the kittens, we do NOT ship and they must be picked up in person at our home. We prefer to meet every new owner in person and only allow in-person selections and pick-ups of our kittens/cats. The cost of shipping versus the cost of traveling to our location is often very similar and it is better for you to have your new best friend safely with you. We always want what is best for our Bengals!
Please note our Bengal cattery is also our home and we are NOT a retail pet store or public zoo open to the public! We get multiple requests daily to come visit our kittens & cats and we simply cannot accommodate that kind of traffic in our home because it is simply a health risk to our cats by having possible illnesses being brought in that could expose our kittens & cats inadvertently. This is for our cats and buyers protection as well. We offer a health guarantee on our kittens, and we could not do that confidently if we had high visitation traffic through our home and cattery. If there is another new litter arriving, visits are not recommended. Our available kittens may be viewed by appointment (48 hours+ in advance) for serious purchasers only after they are fully weaned and have received their first & second core vaccinations/dewormings by 11-12 weeks of age, if we still have any available (most are sold by that time) and client has submitted to us our kitten application, deposit and contract in place on a particular kitten to reserve it. The deposit must be paid in advance/prior to the visit and it is applied towards the total price of the kitten. If you are truly interested in a Hot Spotz Bengals kitten/adult, please fill out & submit our ‘kitten application’ questionnaire.
Thank you for your understanding!
