Bengal breeders

Does anyone know of any good, reasonably priced, Bengal breeders? I ask because my Dad's beloved Bengal, Charmine, had to be PTS last night because of internal bleeding. They do not know what caused it, she had her shots, but the vet said she might have had Feline Lukemia before they got her, her immune was down to a one when normal is in the range of thirteen. She was very ill and since her immunity was so far depleted, she couldn't be saved. Dad made the tuff decision to have her put down at the ER last night and is completely heart broke. He was toally attached to her and her to him. I'll try and get a picture of her for you but Mom and I would like to find him a kitten for Father's Day the same color and it's proving very difficult. They live in Arizona, so the closer the better. Thanks to all.

They are reasonably priced too and the lady was very nice. The other breeder mom got in touch with wante $2000 for a kitten! $500 snds soooo much better! TY!

Sorry to hear about your dad's kitty, it's so hard to lose the little buggers.

I don't know what the going rate is for a Bengal, but assuming all things are equal (e.g. one isn't a breeding kitten vs a pet quality kitten) the vast difference in prices would have me concerned. I don't know which one is out of line....but be sure to really check out the breeder. Here's a thread on finding a good breeder:

A pet quality Bengal is generally $500 - $800 from a reputable breeder. Any lower and I'd be concerned. Now there are some breeders that chagre a lot more than that, perhaps they have a sought after "line" so decide they can charge through the roof.

We were figuring about $500 or so, so it worked out well. She actually wanted $600 but knocked the price down because of the situatn. I thought that was very nice of her. She seems very nice and knowledgable. She's a member of the ASPCA or somthing and some sorte of Bengal club. She does the health checks and certificuts and seems to take good care of her cats. I asked a ton of questions and she answered them knowledgably. I have older(older as in old enough to make their own $, I'm the oldest lol) siblings who are going in on this with me. Mom, myself, my 20 yo sister, my 19 yo brother and my 16 yo brother are all chipping in $100 a peice so the kitty would be from the whole family. I hope it will mean something more to him comming from the lot of us.
