UPDATED June 2015

IMPORTANT: As responsible hobby Show/breeders, we are proud to say we screen our cats for HCM (heart disease) whenever possible and also test for PK deficiency. Results can be seen on the HCM negative register here: http://www.icatecare.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!

June 2015 NEWS: We have a superb new potential stud to be added shortly, so watch this space!




Many congratulations to our home bred stud cat RW SGC Suntouched Santino (Tino) who gained the prestigious title of REGIONAL WINNER (EN) in 2008/2009 TICA show year and finished in the following places:
1st. BEST BENGAL KITTEN in the UK
2nd BEST BENGAL KITTEN IN NORTHERN EUROPE.
6th. BEST BENGAL KITTEN IN THE WORLD!!
Tino has also returned home from the TICA Title-ist show (Milton Keynes) this weekend as a SUPREME GRAND CHAMPION...which was achieved in 3 straight shows just like his daddy Ozzy...and all at only just 9 months of age! We were wondering if he would be able to get the all-important BEST CAT in a Final on Sunday (having attained the title of Quadruple Grand Champion on Saturday) .....and he actually managed to get it 3 times as well as Finaling a total of 11 times out of the 12 rings!! Tino was a happy, purry and relaxed boy throughout the weekend and we are so very proud to be able to call him 'our own'. Tino was born here at Suntouched Bengals and we very much look forward to some super Tino-babies in 2010!

1 x 2nd BEST KITTEN
1 x 3rd. BEST KITTEN

X 5th BEST KITTEN
.......from Rings mostly having about 28 kittens in, and went on to be OVERALL BEST IN SHOW KITTEN!

9th MARCH 2009.
Tino had a very successful show this weekend (7th & 8th March 2009) at the OneForAll TICA Cat Show in Brigg, Lincolnshire, by winning 9/10 Rings (1st Colour, 1st Division, 1st Best of Breed every time) and went on to achieve 9 FINALS!

TINO'S RESULTS (12th April 2009):
Tino was the baby of the group when competing against 23 other brown (some Titled) Bengal adults this weekend and also (some Titled) super silvers and snows. There was actually an average of around 50 adult Allbreed cats (TBC) that he competed against each time he Finaled.
He was just entering into the Adult section at 8 months of age at this show and even though he was the youngest of all the Bengals, he managed to attain the titles of CHAMPION and GRAND CHAMPION on Saturday. On Sunday he managed to gain enough Points and Finals to obtain the title of "DOUBLE GRAND CHAMPION" (WOW)!!
As TINO was competing against more mature cats (many with SUPREME GRAND CHAMPION titles)... we are absolutely over the moon that he could still hold his own against the more mature 'Top Dogs' at such a tender young age. We feel sure there must be more to come with our TINO, so do keep checking back for show results and details.

Just take a look at this boy. He is one that we nearly sold...Oops! Thankfully he is still with us, and will be staying here now so that we can capture his wonderful profile and head/overall type in a kitten or two from him sometime in the not too distant future.
Do take a look at his MORE PHOTO'S where you can see his lovely straight profile and tiny rounded, well-set ears as well as his fabulous coat and pattern.

Tino has the best profile and smallest ears that we have ever seen on a Bengal. He has a straight profile with broad nose, a strong broad muzzle, puffy whisker-pads and a good deep chin. He reminds me so much of his great grand-sire 'Wurthy' (Stonehenge Wurthawate of Snopride/Jungle Jem)...and this boy also has a very strong chin and fabulous glitter on a soft, dense, golden pelt. Tino's background colour is pale golden and the rosettes are black outlined, with red centres but no overall rufousing. He has a good tail, quite thick and even, with a rounded tip and clear patterning including rosettes. Tino is a large, chunky, deep bodied boy with very good bone and substance and is a very lively, confident and affectionate lad with a perfect temperament.

PREVIOUS SHOW RESULTS:
15th December 2008. Tino attended the SpoTICAt Cat Show in Coventry (13th/14th December 2008) There was a very good entry of 21 Bengal kittens on Saturday and 19 on Sunday, and a grand total of 63 allbreed kittens in attendance!
We are thrilled to announce that Tino Finaled in 8 Rings and was BEST IN SHOW SHORTHAIR KITTEN. This was a great result as it was Tino's very first show and he is still very much a baby at just 4 months old and was one of the youngest kittens in the show.

After just the one very successful TICA show (see above), Suntouched Santino stands in the TOP 10 BENGAL KITTENS IN NORTHERN EUROPE!

SHOW NEWS:

18th JANUARY Congratulations to Tino for achieving the following at the RagtimeTICA Cat Show on 17th / 18th January 2009 at Wood Green Animal Shelter, Godmanchester, Cambridge.

1st BEST COLOUR X 8 TIMES
1st BEST DIVISION X 8 TIMES
1st BEST OF BREED X 8 TIMES
9 X FINALS!

Tino went on to Final no less than 9 times out of a possible 12, and was overall BEST IN SHOW SHORTHAIR KITTEN, (for the second time).....so we were absolutely blown away! Well done Tino!
-------------------------------------------------------------
RESULTS 26th April 2009
Tino has returned from his second TICA adult show, where he was (again) the very youngest of them all (up to about 25 Bengals) at 8 months old. He won/was placed in 10/12 Rings and now has the title of TRIPLE GRAND CHAMPION! Well done Tino!
We would also like to say how proud we are of his 1/2 sister Anya, who also titled on the weekend (details on Queens page).

We had been looking for a new show/stud cat to join our family, simply because our cats can become too closely related and some new unrelated bloodlines are needed if we are to continue our hobby of breeding stunning show cats.
We came across this super Bengal boy and instantly knew he was the one!

Introducing our new potential show/stud cat from Germany.
This stunning boy has everything (and more!) that we could ever wish for.
He has a fabulous short tight, glittered pelt with a large rosetted pattern and great contrast. His type is super! He has small, well set ears set on his domed skull, a straight profile, puffy whisker pads and a good strong chin.
His temperament is fantastic! He is a real love-bug who will happily curl up asleep on your lap and will follow you everywhere.
The icing on the cake is his White Tummy. He currently has a very white tummy which continues down the insides of his legs, which we feel sure he will keep into adulthood.
I never thought we would be able to find such a perfect boy to join our show cat family, but this boy has it all and is a real credit to his breeder.

DiMaggio has been tested N/N (Normal) for PK deficiency and both parents have been heart screened normal (HCM negative)

He carries the Seal Lynx (Blue-eyed Snow) gene but does not carry dilute (Blue)
Many thanks to Madlen for this wonderful boy!

This boy is a home-bred son of our fabulous RW SGC stud cat Santino, who is also home bred. We love Tango's profile which is straight and is complimented by a good strong chin with plenty of strength and depth to his muzzle. He has large nocturnal eyes with very good width between and a good broad nose. His ears are small and neat and are nicely set to the side of his rounded head and back-skull.

Tango has a very clear and brightly coloured 3 tone pattern on a soft glittered coat and like our other home bred Bengal cats, he has a super temperament!

Photo's shown here were taken at the Regional Show 2010 held in Rickmansworth UK. The bottom photo shows Tango being awarded 'Best Kitten in Show' by our lovely UK judge Lindsey Wright. Thankyou Lindsey!

Here you can see our previous stud cats who have lived at Suntouched Bengals and are now retired. Some will have been shown more than others, as they don't all take to the show scene. We have offspring from all of these cats, and sometimes down to 5 generations below too!
