Bengal cat Canada

People search for Bengal cat Canada, what does it mean? Ans: Canadians want to find a Bengal cat of course! Canada being next to the home of the Bengal cat is well placed I guess. I made a posting on Bengal cat adoption. This linked page has lots of links on it to breeders and rescue centers etc. You name it you'll probably find it there. I hope anyway. One of the best links is probably the rescue center link which takes you to perhaps some unexpected areas. That is not to say there isn't a place for good Bengal cat breeders.

UPDATE: ALL THESE BREEDERS ARE NOW OUT OF BUSINESS! THE POST WAS WRITTEN ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO. THAT'S THE NATURE OF CAT BREEDING. IT IS A HOBBY AND IT DOES NOT ENDURE MUCH BEYOND 10 YEARS (OR LESS). SORRY.

I'll just list some top breeders here. Rosetta Cattery This is Bengal cattery is located in Burlington, Ontario, Canada (the link takes you to a Google map). I like this website, full of information and concern. One or two of the cattery's cats have been featured in the Baron's book on the Bengal cat. The Canadian Cat Association accepted the Bengal cat for championship status in 1995 and this cattery was there, right at the beginning, showing cats - a long history. They were showing cats before than under TICA and in 1991 one of their cats, Cleopatra, won Best Bengal Champion at a TICA show. Bundas Cattery Located Mount Forest, Ontario, Canada (opens to a Google map). This is another very impressive cattery website, full of information and some great pictures of the cattery itself. You don't often see that but I can see why - this is a big cattery with plenty of space. It is run by Grace Lush. I don't know her but I would expect a lot of people do in the cat fancy in Canada. Silkenthunder Bengals Of course these are my personal views but I have seen a lot of websites and cattery websites and this one is really nice. It has a thoroughly professional feel to it. They are located on the boundary of Winipeg surrounded by golf courses and a country club! The husband must play golf. They make the point that people wishing to adopt a Bengal cat really must be prepared to interact with their cat (i.e. give over some time) as this cat is interactive and likes a bit of action. If you prefer a cat more docile there are other purebreds more suitable, Persian, British Shorthair and Ragdoll come to mind but there are others. Christacats This one is on the other side of the country near Vancouver in Abbotsford. They have a lovely home in a fine position in wide open countryside - I'm jealous. There are more catteries of course. The ones listed are at the top of a Google listing and Google found the good ones but there are more good ones too. Bengal cat Canada to Bengal cats for sale

Cat Ear Mites

Brown gunge. Yes, I know this is a ferret! It does show the build up of dark brown to black ear wax caused by the presence of the cat ear mites in the outer ear canal. This parasite is not restricted to the domestic cat, which makes this photo valid and a useful illustration (I was unable to find a suitable photo of a cat with the condition). Photo Stacy Lynn Baum under a creative commons license. Ear mites (minute crab like creatures) are one of the causes of inflammation of the outer ear canal (scientific term for this inflammation is Otitis externa ). The outer ear canal is the tube that runs from outside to the ear drum (the pathway for the reception of sound), which can be seen when looking at the ear. Otitis externa affects humans and often swimmers as it is called "swimmer's ear" in humans. This YouTube video show ear mites under a microscope. They are not actually in the ear in this video. There are many possible causes of Otitis externa in c

Feline Mange

I'll write about three types of feline mange (a) feline scabies or head mange (b) demodectic mange and (c) sarcoptic mange. The source material is from Cat Owner's Home Veterinary Handbook - the best on the market . Generalised feline mange? Puerto Rico - Photo by Gotham City Lost And Found Feline Scabies - head mange Head mange or feline scabies, is a fairly rare condition in cats, which is caused by the Notoedres mite (head mite) that only reproduces on cats. The female mites burrow a few millimeters (that is a lot) into the skin around the head, and neck to lay eggs, which hatch and lay their own eggs. Their presence and activities causes intense itching that in turn causes the cat to scratch. The scratching will obviously be noticed and it will cause the skin to become red, scratched and worse infected. Symptoms: hair loss and scabs, thick wrinkled skin and grey/yellow crusts form plus the symptoms of scratching. Feline mange (head mange) is contagious and tr

Cat Anatomy

Cat Anatomy - Photo by Curious Expeditions . The picture above was taken at Wax Anatomical Models at La Specola in Florence, Italy. The photograph is published under a creative commons license kindly granted by the photographer. I am sorry if it is a bit gruesome. It is pretty well all I could find as an illustration that was licensed for publication. Cat Anatomy is a very wide ranging subject. The anatomy of a cat is very similar to human anatomy. If you were writing a biology book for students of biology you would go through every part of the a cat's anatomy in some detail. It would be similar to writing a book about the human anatomy. It would be a thick book and pretty boring for your average internet surfer. So, how do you limit such a big subject and make this post meaningful? The answer I think lies in doing two things: Having a quick general look at cat anatomy - an overview and; Focusing on the areas of cat anatomy that are particular to the cat and of parti
