The Wisdom in Placing a Deposit.

How it works: When kittens are firstborn, it is very hard to tell  which one to pick, as they all look and act about the same-kind of  like wet, dark colored newborns. You’ve done your research, found a breeder you like, studied pictures of Queen and Sire- and perhaps even met them.  At this point you probably have a good idea of what the kittens will grow up to look like as an adult.  You also have probably decided what your budget is, and on that basis decided if you are in the market for a nice pet, a very high end, flashy Bengal which is Show or Breeder Quality.    With Bengal kittens, amazing transformations occur in just 3-4 weeks. Bodies grow larger and lighter in color, spots start concentrating and beautiful patterns begin to emerge. The Breeder is generally able to get an idea of which kittens have the greatest show potential (and will often have them marked as “on hold” for  evaluation for clients with the most discriminating needs).  In this way, they are distinguished from those that will be reserved for those who are want to complement their life with an absolutely  lovely pet kitten. After about 4 weeks, more changes come about- sometime a pet quality kitten suddenly develops an incredible profile, or their proportions change and they suddenly display the most perfect size ears & positioning. For this reason, all kittens are periodically re-evaluated. If they improve dramatically, they will be re-priced accordingly. By placing a deposit on your kitten- especially pets, you will lock in the original quoted price.  Because the deposit is non refundable, it shows your seriousness as a buyer and that our commitment in holding a kitten for you is justified.  It is like an earnest deposit, when you are buying a house. The kitten is essentially taken off the market for you.

Your pick is based upon the order in which your deposit was received.  So let’s say, if in a litter of 5 kittens, there were 2 show quality and  3 high end pet kittens – The first person that put a deposit down on a show quality/breeder kitten, would have have first pick of the two available. The first person who put a deposit on the pet kittens, would have first pick, the 2nd deposit would have 2nd choice, etc…. Putting your deposit down early ensures the lowest price, and greatest chance of getting the kitten you want.  It is not unusual for a kitten purchased as a pet, with a deposit, turn out to be show quality. It is our job as breeders to do the best we can to distinguish them, but it is not always possible. I hope this explanation helps clarify how kittens are picked, but please feel free
