Cat shows are taking your best kittens or adult cats to show them to other feline exhibitors, Judges, and spectators. The primary objective is to have a Judge place your cat in the “Finals” and having that cat go on to acquire their Championship. Sitting with friends and chatting, comparing notes on how a certain cat is doing at the show. Being active members in cat clubs, and helping put together cat shows. This is “our” hobby, it’s what we love to do. It’s all about being with friends, and around other individuals who enjoy the same interests.
We are a small hobby cattery, so when we breed it is mainly to produce kittens that will go on to be our next show cats for the cat show season.
Lydia and I are relatively new to the cat world. We raised, trained and exhibited our dogs before venturing into cats. I have been showing dogs for forty years. I met my wife at a dog show, and we were even married at a dog show. But sixteen years of raising large dogs got to us and we decided to look for a smaller breed of dogs. We had no idea that our interest in finding a smaller breed of dog would eventually lead us in the world of Bengal cats! During the time we were in search of a smaller breed, “Starbengal’s Splendor” appeared in the local newspaper. We were awestruck by the photos of a gorgeous black and white spotted Bengal cat with his owner Earl Shropshire in our local paper. Lydia asked me if I would be interested in looking at the Bengal cat as an alternative for a small dog. We researched the Bengal breed for two years, before we decided it was time to take the big step on purchasing our first cat, a silver Bengal Female, which is our now “Outstanding Dam”, the beautiful “Ice”.
We live in Southern California, and we show our cats and are active members of two Cat Clubs. As “hobby” breeders, we produce a few litters a years. We have met some of the greatest individuals through cats and cat shows and have made lasting friendships thanks to them.
With Silver Bengals finally able to show for their championships in TICA, we successfully have shown our Dimonz on Ice to her Championship, and her last show she received eight finals, one of those a “Best Cat” in a Bengal Congress of 31 Bengals. This is the foundation we hope to build on; developing a clear coated Silver Snow Bengal, with an outstanding structure. We owe our success to several breeders, Bob Torquato for breeding Ice, Linda Evans for allowing us to breed Ice to Jean Luc, Connie and Chuck Pealer for taking pity on us and helping with some of our best breeding’s, and Les Hall for taking the time to point us in the right direction with our silver Bengal program, the rest is history, which without God’s blessings would have remained a dream.
We are best known for our excellent Bengal temperaments, Bengal Show Cats, Silver Bengals, Silver Snow Bengals, and also our Brown Rosetted Bengals as well as our Beautiful Bengal Kittens. We live in California so we do breed all year long, and do have Bengal kittens available all year round. Please see our Available Bengal Kittens Page for current Bengal Kittens.
