Firstly, let me introduce myself. I am Kate, principal breeder of Alkala Bengals Australia. Growing up on a dairy farm and having our own beef and sheep property, I’ve always had an affinity with animals. As a trained musician and educator, I spent over three years living in the UK and touring Europe and the United States as a soloist and group performer. My son and I are also keen horse riders and spend many weekends traveling to competitions.
The first time I saw a bengal, I knew I had found my calling. It was love at first sight. Since that moment I have worked tirelessly to develop Alkala Bengals Australia into the premier program it is today. With a focus on producing healthy, well conformed and beautiful progeny, we have acquired an outstanding range of adults.
My babies live as a part of the family rather then cattery cats. They enjoy their days lounging around their personal outdoor areas with pools, climbing apparatus and entertainment. Queens come inside every night to sleep in their personal apartments. Our kittens are NOT raised in a kitten room or kitten lounge but are raised under foot in our families lounge so they are well adjusted to family life when they are ready to fly the coop. I pride myself on producing loving and confident babies with the outstanding looks Alkala babies are known for.
I hope you enjoy looking at my babies as much as I enjoy showing and telling you all about them!!

They can and do learn, walk on a harness and lead and most enjoy the diversity of visiting new places.

Lifespan & Health:
Bengals generally live for approximately 12-18 years. As with all animals this is usually determined by general health, vet care and nutrition. Bengals can be affected by HCM, PKD, & PRA in regards to hereditary diseases. All of your adults are tested as non carriers for these issues so we are unable to produce any inflicted progeny.
Do Bengal cat require special care?
As a general rule no, they do not require any special care different to other breeds. A diet consisting or raw meat, high quality dry food, plenty of fresh water and chicken necks or dental biscuits to help with teeth is the best way to care for your bengal cat. Regular vet check ups and vaccinations are recommended as with all breeds.
