Updated June 2015
We would like to point out that our cats are our Pets, our family, first and foremost. Everything else we do comes secondary to them as they are our number 1 priority, absolutely, and with no exceptions. We may run on a kitten to see how he/she turns out, and to take to shows, but this does not neccessarily mean they will be bred from.

IMPORTANT: As responsible hobby Show/breeders, we are proud to say we screen our cats for HCM whenever possible and also test for PK deficiency. Results can be seen on the HCM negative register here: http://www.icatcare.org (formerly FABcats) and are also available to prospective kitten buyers when visiting.
Please do your own research and be sure you buy from screened cats!
February 2012. We have completed our testing for PKdef (Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency) and we have no positive K/K cats in our cat family here. Any kittens born from a carrier parent N/K will be tested if going for breeding.


SUNTOUCHED BENGALS have more home-bred Titled Bengal cats ranging from Champion to the highest Supreme Grand Champion and Regional Winner titles than anyone else here in the UK or Western Europe!

LATEST NEWS: Our beautiful Malaysian girl has produced some superb Clouded Bengal kittens. To see what a clouded Bengal looks like, please visit the Available Kittens page.
*We have some exciting new potential queens to be added very shortly, so please check back soon!

Introducing Athena, our special new Bengal girl.
Athena has a rare pattern that resembles the Clouded Leopard. The pattern has also been described as resembling that of an anaconda!

This type of pattern is very rare. We do not believe there is another like her in the UK, and we are very much looking forward to seeing what she will produce later on. We would dearly love to replicate this pattern in her offspring.

Athena is a very loving girl, and quite crazy too! She is extremely energetic and nocturnal too, which means at 'lights out' time for me, she is just getting started! She leaps, runs & jumps in the air for a couple of hours before she finally settles down with me, on my bed, to sleep.

She has good type as well as a pretty pattern. She has medium sized ears, very well placed to the side of her head, which is small in comparison to her body. She has an almost straight profile and a good deep chin. Her muzzle is broad and deep, and her neck is feminine and elegant.
Her tail is fabulous! It is medium/short, very thick and even.

Athena often reminds me of my F2 girl Hazina. So much so that I have sometimes called her 'Zumi'! (Hazina's nickname.)



SHOW NEWS SEPT 2009
Congratulations to our very sweet Bengal queen Anya, who attended the TickedTICA cat show on 19th + 20th September 2009, where she gained an amazing 6 Finals and enough points to be awarded the title of QUADRUPLE GRAND CHAMPION!! This is an amazing feat for any cat, let alone a Bengal (there is a great number of super Bengals to beat!) and even more so for a girl to achieve great titles when competing against the mature titled males!

Pictured here at 7 months of age this stunning Bengal queen needs no introduction. She has the clearest rosetted coat with fantastic contrast. Her 'true' black-outlined rosettes have deep red centres and are set on a golden glittered pelt. Her coat is smooth, short, dense and incredibly soft and silky to the touch. She is an F5 Bengal but has the appearance of a much earlier generation Bengal, maybe an F2 or F3. Her tail is shortish in length and very thick with a correct rounded tip. Her head is very wild looking, though her temperament is typical of a Suntouched Bengal...sweet as a nut!
We are looking forward to seeing what kittens this lovely girl may bless us with later this year.

Anya is sired by our Regional Winner, Supreme Grand Champion Bengal stud cat Ozzy, who was the Best Bengal in the UK, the 4th Best Bengal in Northern Europe and the 11th Best Bengal in the World for the TICA show year 2007/2008!!

SHOW NEWS Anya returned from the CoonTICA show (25th/26th April) as a CHAMPION! Many congratulations to Anya as she was the youngest female Bengal adult cat and had a huge number (up to 25) of good quality (some mature, titled male) Bengals to beat to obtain this title. Well done Anya...it couldn't have happened to a sweeter Bengal cat.....at just 9 months of age!
MORE NEWS MAY 17th Many congratulations to our beautiful, wild-looking Bengal queen 'Anya', who has come home from her second adult TICA show as a 'GRAND CHAMPION'! Anya is just 10 months of age and had to beat about 20+ other adult Bengals (mostly mature, some Titled adult males) to obtain this title, as well as the other breeds of cats present. What an achievement for such a young girl! We hope to take Anya showing again before breeding from her.

JUNE 2011: CONGRATULATIONS TO BELLE, WHO GETS A SECOND RW TITLE EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS ONLY SHOWN FOR HALF OF THE SHOW YEAR. WELL DONE BELLE!

Also 3rd Best Brown Bengal in Western Europe 2010/11!



Sire: DGC Blissnmore Baron of Suntouched
Dam: Suntouched Sharifa

This stunning girl was obviously a 'keeper' the minute she was born. Black outlined rosettes, now with red centres, on a clear pale golden background make her pelt truly beautiful and clearly defined.
Her type is excellent. She has genuinely small ears with rounded tops, correctly set slightly on the side of her head with good width between. She has a straight profile, broad muzzle and chin and very puffy whisker pads. Here eyes are bright and animated, and with the very light spectacles and striking cheek flashes she really does have a very wild look.

Belle's temperament is superb. She is an absolute sweetheart who gets along very well with all the other Bengals that she runs with. Her best friend is Saffie (seen below) and they are inseparable.

Belle was the youngest Bengal kitten (along with Saffie) out of nearly 50 kittens present at the Bengal Cat Club of Great Britain (BCCGB) show in 2009, and she was overall BEST BENGAL KITTEN IN SHOW. Saffie was the 2nd BEST BENGAL KITTEN and this was a huge achievement as they were up against the more mature and bigger Bengal males of nearly 8 months of age!



Saffie has produced 1 litter to date

The above photo shows Saffie at the REGIONAL SHOW in Rickmansworth 2010. It shows her very long body and a small head. Her small even rosettes all over her body (with NO linkage/barring whatsoever) give her the appearance of a real mini-leopard!.

SHOW NEWS MAY 14th 2010:
Saffie has become a QUADRUPLE GRAND CHAMPION! at the SpoTICAt show!
We are thrilled that Saffie has come this far as she has had to compete against the top boys in all breeds to achieve these titles.

SHOW NEWS April 25th 2010:
Congratulations to Saffie, who became a TRIPLE Grand Champion at the TickedTICA Cat Show in Swanley, aged just 10 months. Saffie had to beat the World's number 1 Bengal as well as number 4 best Bengal in the world (her brother Tino) in order to achieve this title, so WELL DONE SAFFIE! We are very proud of you.


SHOW NEWS 10th April:
Saffie had a great weekend at her 3rd Cat Show, the OneforAll Cat Show in Brigg on 10/11th April 2010 and is now a DOUBLE GRAND CHAMPION!

CONGRATULATIONS SAFFIE!

SHOW NEWS 7th March:
At the Oneforall TICA cat show on 6/7th March, Saffie became a GRAND Champion! Compliments were made by the judges about her large nocturnal eyes, her femininity, her dense, short and plush pelt as well as her superb sweet temperament. We hope there may be more to come with Saffie, as she is only just 9 months of age.....so 'watch this space'!

SHOW NEWS: October 3rd 2010

We attended the Bengal Cat Club of GB show (Stoneleigh Park) in early October, where we are thrilled to announce that Saffie got a BEST CAT award and is now a
SUPREME GRAND CHAMPION!

Saffie is a full sister to our RW SGC Suntouched Santino (Tino), and currently has a Whited Tummy. We decided to keep this super girl from Saba's last litter as, just like Tino, she is a Bengal that we nearly let go. What a relief she is still here! Saffie attended her first ever cat show (the Bengal Cat Club of GB show) aged 4 months to the day, so was the youngest Bengal kitten there and was competing against some very mature Bengal kittens (and other breeds) of nearly 8 months of age.

We are thrilled to announce that Saffie was
2nd BEST BENGAL KITTEN at the Bengal Cat Club of GB show!!! (1st Best Bengal kitten was our Belle...see above)

Saffie has a great head with rounded skull, small well set ears and great width between her almost round, big nocturnal eyes, similar to her brother Tino. Her coat is a pale gold/buttermilk colour and her small, even rosettes balance to her body size like a true mini leopard! She has no linkage whatsoever. Her coat is pelted and is extremely short and dense. It is immensely soft and clear with loads of golden glitter and she has the added bonus of a Whited Tummy at the moment.

Previous show news:
Saffie became a CHAMPION on the first day of her very first adult TICA show (13th Feb) at the tender age of just 8 months! She had to beat every other Bengal at the show (including our own boy Santino, who is currently number 1 best Bengal in the UK and Western Europe) to obtain this title, as well as the best of all the other breeds too! Well done Saffie, so well deserved too.

REFERENCE QUEENS:
HERE WE HOPE TO ADD QUEENS THAT HAVE BEEN PART OF OUR SHOW FAMILY AND HAVE PRODUCED KITTENS HERE THAT MAY CONTINUE A CHERISHED LINE FOR US.
These queens may be living elsewhere but may also be looking for their retirement home, so if you feel you can offer a permanent, kind and loving home please do contact us.

Claudia is now living in her forever home, with another of our retired Bengals. We miss her dearly.

Show news April 25th 2010:
Claudia had a very successful show at the TickedTICAshow in Swanley. She won many 1st Best Colour and Division awards and managed to get 4 Finals! She was placed in the top 4 in all of these finals and was awarded
BEST ALLBREED KITTEN IN SHOW
in Amanda Bright's ring.

Show news March:
Claudia attended the TickedTICA cat show on 20th/21st March 2010, where she had a good weekend and showed herself as the true sweetheart she really is. She rolled around on my lap by the ring, purring away and enjoying all the attention. She managed to beat off the opposition and win 1st BEST COLOUR & 1st BEST DIVISION in ALL 12 RINGS! Congratulations Claudia...so well deserved.


CHAMPION SUNTOUCHED CLAUDIA (Retired)

HCM Screened clear 2013

Sire: Bundas Cream Ice (retired, now aged 13 1/2)
Dam: Suntouched Talia (Screened clear 2010)
Both parents HCM screened clear (2008) by Dr. Mark Patteson MA, VetMB. PhD, DVC, CertVR, MRCVS

This super Blue-eyed Snow Spotted girl showed great promise from when she was very tiny. She has very small ears set on the side of her domed head, with good width between. Her profile is straight, her eyes large, round and nocturnal, and with her striking facial and body markings she has that certain wild look with a fully rosetted pattern, tons of glitter and good type thrown in!

Claudia has had just 1 litter of kittens to date and in that litter she has 2 x CHAMPIONS and 1 SUPREME GRAND CHAMPION!! (SGC SUNTOUCHED SANCIA can be seen on our Queens page and CHAMPION SUNTOUCHED SANTORINO can be seen on our Studs page.)

We hope to repeat this very successful mating in spring 2012.

7th March 2010.
Claudia had another great show weekend at the Oneforall TICA cat show in Leigh, Lancashire, where she managed to beat the boys and Final again. She was placed as 2nd Best Shorthair kitten in Susan Lee's ring and was her 1st Best Bengal Kitten. Well done Claudia, and such a well behaved, sweet little girl too! We hope Claudia may get titled when she is old enough......but she has a couple more months to go yet.....

14th Feb 2010.
CONGRATULATIONS to Claudia for a successful show on the weekend, at the (TICA) CATTICA show in Milton Keynes. She behaved impeccably despite being in season again (poor baby!). We were thrilled when she finaled and cannot wait to take her out again.
We hope very much that this Bengal baby will prove another great home-bred show success for us and that she will gain a title (or more) when she is old enough.

 

Chiq


This is one of our older queens:
CHIQ OF SUNTOUCHED (Retired)

HCM Screened clear at 6 years of age (2012)
by Dr. Mark Patteson MA, VetMB. PhD, DVC, CertVR, MRCVS

Chiq is one of our queens who has consistently produced very special kittens with good health and great type. Small ears are her speciality, along with deep strong chins and sweet temperaments.
We were thrilled when Chiq screened clear of HCM (heart normal) in 2012 at the age of 6 years. It is likely that she is clear from genetic heart defects and so is unlikely to have passed any on to her offspring.
We have Chiq's Grand-daughter RW SGC Suntouched Belle Fille & daughter Suntouched Chaz (both HCM screened clear 2012/2013) here to continue this wonderful line for us.


I thank Chiq from the bottom of my heart for all she has given me.




This super girl Aysha is a queen that I have so much respect for. She was bought as an adult and never got along with other cats, no matter how hard we tried. She wasn't the best of mum's either, choosing to deliver babies in the litter tray and leave the rest to us. Once past the delivery stage though, she would nurture and cherish the babies with lots of love, so we have always given her the benefit of the doubt and helped her in every way we can. She loves humans thankfully, so homing time at retirement (which is 2012) is hopeful.
We thank Aysha for giving us all the experience we have gained, plus the wonderful babies too. You will be missed tremendously when that forever retirement home comes along!


Glitterglam Geisha Girl (Aysha)
Retired, now 8 years of age.
HCM Screened clear at 6 years 4m (2012)
by Dr. Mark Patteson MA, VetMB. PhD, DVC, CertVR, MRCVS

This super Blue-eyed snow marbled girl has a fabulous, typey head and very good contrast to her pattern. Her ears are remarkably small, rounded and well set, with wide bases and good width between. Her muzzle is wide with very puffy whisker pads and a strong, deep chin. Aysha's eyes are fabulous...a good strong cornflower blue colour, of good shape and size. The contrast on this girl is great for a blue-eyed snow. Very deep with a pale cream, very clear background full of diamond glitter. Aysha has a medium length thick tail and a sweet temperament.
   

RETIRED.


UPDATE : We are thinking that Lissy doesn't like the breeding thing very much as she likes the quiet life (don't we all??!!), so we may just see about getting 1 litter from her with (hopefully) a keeper kitten to replace her. She would then be able to live the quiet life she desires!

HCM Screened clear at 5 1/2 years (2009) by Dr. Mark Patteson MA, VetMB. PhD, DVC, CertVR, MRCVS

This beautiful F5 girl is from our lovely Llandar queen Anna, who is a long-time favourite of mine.Unlike her sister Anya who is more like their mum Anna, Lissy is very much like her dad Ozzy (RW SGC Xclusive X Factor of Suntouched) who himself came from a litter of 3 kittens, all of whom went on to become TICA RW Supreme Grand Champions!

Annelise (affectionately known as 'Lissy') is a very quiet and slightly reserved girl. We took her showing a couple of times where she managed to gain enough points and Finals to gain the title of 'Champion', but then retired her as she didn't enjoy the showing scene.

We love this girl's broad muzzle and puffy whisker pads. She is a large girl, with a dense and soft coat full of glitter. Her ears are very small and correctly set to the side of her head, which has a rounded top and back-skull. Lissy's tail is good and thick and quite short.

Lissy has not yet bred but we hope she may have some babies for us in 2011, so watch this space!
