Hello and Welcome!
Amantra is a hobby cattery, I have been breeding Bengals
since 1997. They are fascinating, intelligent cats and beyond
I choose my cats not only for excellent markings, rosettes
and coats, but also focus on wild "type", health, conformation,
temperament and structural correctness. I work with
both brown and snow colors, mainly spotted/rosetted, but sometimes
have marble patterned kittens also. My adult breeding cats
are all screened for HCM by a Board Certified Cardiologist,
using top of the line Ultrasound and color Doppler. HCM is
the most common heart disease in cats of all breeds, including
mixes. Parents of each litter are carefully chosen on individual
strengths and how I feel they will compliment each other.
is my strong preference to place my kittens in loving pet
homes rather than sell them as breeders. Although I will occasionally
place kittens as breeders (usually with friends I know and
trust), I feel more assured in most cases that the kitten
will have the best life as beloved pet. Because of this you
will rarely, if ever, see kittens on this site listed for
sale as “Breeder/Show”. This is not because the
kittens are not breeder or show quality - in fact many of
them are! I simply rest easier placing them as gorgeous
pets. Kittens sold as pets will either be spay/neutered before
leaving, or on a contract signed by both myself and the buyer
that they will be altered prior to 7 months and never bred.
TICA papers are sent once proof of spay/neuter is received.
All kittens are current on vaccines and come with a written
health guarantee. We are located in California, in southern
Kern County, midway between Los Angeles and Bakersfield.
