A little about Suntouched Bengals UK: (More can be read on our 'About Us' page).

We are Bengal cat Show/hobby breeders based in Glamorgan, South Wales, UK. and are easily accessible via the M4 motorway from nearby areas such as Swansea, Cardiff, Caerphilly, Newport, Maesteg, Pontypool, Barry, Cowbridge and also Birmingham, Carmarthen and West Wales are not far to travel.Our Prefix 'SUNTOUCHED' is registered with both GCCF (the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy) and also with TICA (The International Cat Association). This means we are able to register all of our Bengal Cats and Bengal kittens with either of the governing bodies (or both) and the kittens can also be shown at both GCCF and TICA shows.

We occasionally have beautiful Bengal cats and kittens (from F2, F3, F4 to SBT) available for sale as beautiful Pets or for Showing (F4 and higher) or (rarely) to approved breeding programmes. We also have potential young Bengal Studs and Bengal Queens occasionally available to selected Bengal breeding homes only.

Our Bengal cats and kittens all have fabulous temperaments and make excellent pets as they are reared inside the home from day one. Our Bengal kittens are familiar with the sights and sounds of a busy household. When they leave us, they are vet health checked 2-3 times, will have received worming, ear mite and flea treatment (either Frontline, Advocate or Advantage) as a precaution, and will be fully vaccinated (including Leukaemia) and microchipped by our Veterinary Surgeon. They will also come accompanied by a completed Pedigree Certificate as will be eligible for registration with either TICA or GCCF. They also come with a FREE Kitten starter pack, 4 weeks FREE kitten insurance with Petplan ...see our AVAILABLE KITTENS page where you will find kitten pictures of our currently available Bengal kittens. We sometimes have Bengal kittens for sale that are not on our website, so please do ask if you don't see what you are wanting.
Our kittens are well handled from birth and make good playmates for other breeds like Ragdolls, Persians or British Shorthairs as well as many others. They also get along very well with dogs!

Our kittens are available to loving Pet or Show/breeding homes within the U.K., and we will also sometimes sell abroad, but please do contact us for details of kitten availability, and if you are interested in adopting a Bengal kitten for Showing or breeding please do tell us a bit about yourself, including information like: Where you live. Do you currently breed Bengals? Do you currently show cats, or are you interested in Showing Bengals? If you breed Bengals, how many queens and studs do you have? What are the pedigree Bengal lines you are working with at the moment? Do you screen your cats for HCM, and/or do intend doing this? This will help us establish that you will make suitable 'adoptees' for our Bengal kittens, and we can also see if we have a Bengal kitten that will suit your Bengal breeding programme and be a good match for your current Bengal breeding Bengal Studs and Queens.

Suntouched Bengals are based on the coast in South Wales, UK. Our prefix 'Suntouched' was decided due to the fabulous glittered pelts that our Bengal Cats and Bengal Kittens have. It appears that our Bengal Cats, Bengal Studs, Bengal queens and Bengal Kittens coats have been 'touched' by the sun. Hence the name 'Suntouched' Bengals.

Suntouched Bengals are hobby Show/breeders who are dedicated to Showing and breeding good quality, healthy Bengal cats and we occasionally have home-bred Bengal kittens for sale/adoption and may be available to all regions of the UK and Overseas. We have previously also had some rescue kittens here but all were found fabulous homes very quickly.



**We heart screen our cats whenever we can because we like to ensure we are not breeding from heart-defective cats. HCM (Hypertrophic CardioMyopathy) affects Bengals as a well as humans, dogs, Maine Coon cats, Sphinx, Ragdolls, British Shorthairs and many other species/breeds. By heart screening our cats we can be sure that they are free of heart disease when we breed from them. It is still possible for cats to pass on heart problems and even develop problems themselves later on, even when they screen 'heart normal' now, but MANY unhealthy cats have been eliminated from breeding programmes worldwide after screening and we ourselves are caring, ethical and responsible breeders who do not want to breeding blindly from our cats. Screening regularly is the ONLY way to find these problem cats and so help the Bengal breed into a healthy future**. PLEASE ENSURE YOU BUY FROM SCREENING BREEDERS!

Here at Suntouched Bengals, we aim only to produce the very best, healthy Bengal Kittens in the UK, with temperaments being one of our main priorities as well as Show and Breed quality Bengals with super Bengal type and that desired 'wild look' reminiscent of the Asian Leopard Cat (ALC). We are also introducing more Whited Tummied Bengals into our programme, with the addition of Dolly our F3 Bengal, who has a Whited Tummy. Our Bengal queens Anna (F4)*, Dolly (F3) and Saba have all produced kittens with White Tummies, and Dolly our F3 Bengal queen has herself still got a White Tummy at the age of 5 years. Anna (F4) doesn't have the Whited Tummy herself but she carries the gene and her litter of September 2008 of 3 Bengal kittens...all girls....had Whited Tummies when younger so may well carry the white tummy gene. We are hoping to keep two of these stunning F5 kittens from Anna and you may well see them out at TICA or GCCF Shows in 2009. *More about the lower generation Bengals (F1, F2, F3, F4) can be read on our Information page 'FROM ASIAN LEOPARD CAT TO BENGAL'.
Our Bengal Cats have many famous names in their pedigree's, including many Asian Leopard Cats names like: ALC Tariq, ALC Kabuki, ALC Rajah Singh, ALC Taro, and also ALC's from Dr. Centerwall's breeding programme. There are also many famous Bengal names in our cats' pedigree's, like I.W (International WInner) SGC Katznjamr Inkosi, RW (Regional WInner) SGC (Supreme Grand Champion) Stonehenge Wurthawate of Snopride/Jungle Jem, RW SGC Jater Houdini, RW SGC Calcatta's Custom Made, (our own)RW SGC Xclusive X Factor of Suntouched, RW SGC Joykatz Ace Inda Hole, RW SGC DiCaprio, RW QGC Gogees Playboy of Jater, SGC Cheetahsden Sundancer, SGC Millwood Shahanarah, RW QGC Medoz Malifocent, RW DGC Brockenmoor Pacific Ocean plus many more names that can be found by searching GOOGLE, MSN or YAHOO!

We Show our Bengal Cats and Bengal Kittens whenever we can. This has to fit in around the due litters of kittens, as we never leave our Bengal queens on their own when the kittens are due. As our Bengal Cats all have lovely temperaments, this follows on in the kittens who make excellent Pets or Show / Breed Bengals, with that extra-special wild-looking 'Bengal' quality reminiscent of the ALC/F1 hybrid cat.

If you are looking for a friendly, good quality GCCF or TICA registered Bengal cat or kitten, please do contact us for availability. We are dedicated to breeding good quality Bengal kittens in our quest to improve the Bengal breed. We often have Bengal kittens available but we rarely sell on our own breeding Bengal queens or Bengal stud cats for breeding, though occassionally we may run on a special young Bengal so we may have a litter from him/her and get a keeper girl before re-homing as a pet or as a stud/queen cat to a small (approved) Bengal breeding programme...preferably with people we already know.
We do sometimes have retired Bengal queens or Bengal stud cats available for rehoming, after they have been neutered/altered. These Bengal cats make excellent family cats and will be friendly and clean, with no bad habits. If you are interested in one of our Bengal kittens or Bengal studs or queens, or even a retired Bengal cat from Suntouched Bengals, please do get in touch with us for further information. More details about our Bengal cats can be found on our OUR CATS (STUDS and QUEENS) pages, and for kitten details take a look at our AVAILABLE KITTENS page...it has lots of information, including our 'ADVICE ON BUYING A KITTEN' page, plus some really sweet kitten photo's!
