We have been restricting most visits at the cattery due to this virus. I am asking clients to make their initial "hold" choices by Photographs. Videos and additional photos will be provided for each kitten between 7 and 8 weeks of age for your final decision.
Once kittens are 7 weeks old, we can arrange for a car visit. This is where you come over, park and leave your windows up while I bring kittens for you to see through your window. Since we know now that Covid19 can pass to cats, I need to take extra precautions to do our best to ensure that all of my clients get kittens who are free of this disease.
As of 8/9/20, Alaska Airlines is still accepting pets for transportation as long as the flight is direct and non-stop. This can change without notice due to the nature of this evolving situation. International flights are still very restricted and I recommend that you contact your airlines to see what their rules are for pet travel before getting a kitten from me.
We hope everyone stay's safe and healthy during this trying time! Bengals are a great way to bring the family together while releasing some of the stress that everyone is feeling.

Note: USDA License is legally required to ship pet kittens anywhere in the US. Please visit the cattery if you are local and they are not USDA Inspected to see how the cats/kittens are raised before you choose your kitten!!! There are many unethical/illegal scams as well as breeder who do not care for their cats their cats that would allow them to pass an inspection or raise the Sire/Dam in facilities that you would want to support.

KING COUNTY LICENSED! TRAIPSE BENGALS is one of only 2 licensed catteries in King County (Seattle, WA) 2013 - 2020!!
TICA OUTSTANDING CATTERY
Please consider carefully which breeder along with the kitten that you want to join your family. Working with unlicensed facilities gives you no guarantees that a breeder will stand up to their contracts, provide healthy kittens and keep the adults in breed appropriate facilities that give them the space, environment and socialization that's best for the parents!
We've all heard the phrase "If a price seems too good to be true, it probably is"
I've worked with countless clients that have had extremely negative experiences due to things like:
-Not being able to visit the cattery and inspect and see the cleanliness, health of the animals yourself and size/style of their habitats/environment.
-Being charged to deliver a kitten to the client because they don't allow visitors.
-Not being able to meet the parents of the cats.
-Not being able to see TICA/CFA registrations for each breeding cat
-Not being able to see health records of all of the cats and kittens at the cattery
-Extremely early neutering (8 wks to 12 wks) which can cause growth plate development issues, other development issues and expensive future surgerys ($2500 per hip x 2 for one client that received a kitten that was neutered too early - 2 individual Vet opinions). (BTW Early neutering at 4 - 6 months seems to be fine and I haven't seen issues come from this time period)
Please ask yourself the question of "Why don't they want me to see their cats/facilites/records?"

Then consider a Bengal Kitten as your next animal Companion. Living Art – Stalking and Prowling around your home.
These beautiful, domestic sized cats have a touch of “wild blood” in them making them incredibly unique house pets. They are active, very intelligent and quite connected to their human companions - they are not the “indifferent” cats that many of us grew up with!
Traipse Bengals is a TICA Outstanding Cattery and a TIBCS Breeder of Distinction giving you assurances that my cats, kittens and you are all treated exceptionally well. I currently breed the following:
Snow Leopard Bengals
Brown/Gold/Red Rosetted Bengals
Clouded Leopard Pattern Bengals
Blue Snow Bengals
Melanistic Bengals (with Spotted Pattern)
Over the past 8 years, I have been to over 100 shows all over the US, Canada and Euriope. Traipse Bengals were given "Champion" or better title with over 50 cats. Two of them have been "International WInners" which mean they are in the top 25 Internationally (All Breeds)!!! Big Mac and Honey were the "Best Snow Bengal" for 2015 and 2016 Internationally with TICA!!! :)
If you are interested in this breed, I encourage you to come up to Tiger Mountain and meet some of my adults - There is such a wide variety of beauty within this breed that pictures and video just don’t do them justice. You will appreciate seeing and meeting them in person! It’s also the best way to build your own list of preferences so that when you take home your new kitten, they grow up into an adult that you’ll be thrilled with for years to come.
Thank you for vising our website!
