ASK YOURSELF --- DOES YOUR BREEDER TEST THEIR CATS FOR ALL 50 CAT GENETIC DISORDERS, FIV, FELV, CALICIVIRUS, TRITRICHOMONAS, TOXOPLASMA, GIARDIA AND MORE??? Then why would you take the chance that you could be buying a kitten that could have a deadly or untreatable virus or disease... DEMAND THAT BREEDERS START TESTING AND ASK THEM TO SEE THE TEST RESULTS FOR PROOF = CLICK ON OUR BACK YARD BREEDERS TAB FOR MORE INFORMATION - keep in mind some upper respiratory conditions are common in cats "(FHV-1)for example It's not uncommon, in fact almost all cats are exposed to FHV-1 as kittens, either by live or killed vaccines, their mother or by another cat. Up to 80% of cats develop a hidden (referred to as dormant or latent) infection and become carries of FHV-1 for life."

HELLO - My name is Heather. I am an active member of the CFA (CAT FANCIERS ASSOCIATION) BENGAL BREED COUNCIL - https://ecat.cfa.org/Reports/BreedCouncil_ReportByBreed.aspx 

I have completed the THERAPY ANIMAL HANDLER course and am working towards VOLUNTEERING at Hospitals, Nursing Homes, and other locations, to educate and bring joy to those in need. - Check out our Certificates and awards tab - on this site.

I have also completed the Certified Cat Friendly Veterinary Advocate (CFVA) program, and I also hold many certificates regarding felines: health, dietary needs, respiratory, diseases, viruses, stress reducing techniques and more.

I will continue to study, research and do what needs to do done to ensure that EXOTIC LEGENDS BENGALS stands above ALL OTHERS not only in health, but in socialization, AND we are working hard to bring back the ORIGINAL BENGAL BREED standards.

I also hold a AA in Criminal Justice, BS in Accounting, and a MBA (Healthcare Management). I work full-time in the healthcare industry, working from home as a caregiver. I am also retired from a state government position. I strive for perfection. Like an artist cresting a piece of fine art. We go over and beyond what other catteries do. WHY you may ask? Because I am like, Albert Einstien, Paul Dirac, Thomas Jefferson, Andy Warho, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Steve Jobs, Alfred Kiney, Emily Dickinson and many more individuals. We all are creative, intelligent, strive for perfection and are Autistic... Here is a link of history's 30 most inspiring people on the Autism Spectrum - https://www.appliedbehavioranalysisprograms.com/historys-30-most-inspiring-people-on-the-autism-spectrum/

Being a caregiver is a rewarding career, that enables me to have such a GREAT leisure-time activity . I am a home body and these lovely animals are my emotional support animals (we have Bengals that are strictly our pets and were NEVER used for breeders) All my FUR Family Members are part of my family. Some people golf, bowl, garden, take wild life photos, hike, mountain climb, can and make their own foods for recreation, but relaxing and caring for these Bengals is my form of recreation. Bengals are my leisure-time activity, my labor of love. We picked Bengals as our family pets because we have allergies and we wanted a smart, hypoallergenic pet.

We except gifts (AKA (also known as), payments, deposits - listed throughout our site and documents). These gifts (AKA, payments, deposits) are used for the care of these wonderful fur babies. This is an expensive leisure-time activity - (like playing golf for example). I do it for sport or recreation and not for the objective of making a profit.

Bacteria and Viruses
Bacteria and viruses are the most common cause of food poisoning. The symptoms and severity of food poisoning vary, depending on which bacteria or virus has contaminated the food.
To prevent illness, always follow the food safety steps: clean, separate, cook, and chill. Other prevention tips for specific bacteria and viruses are included below.
The bacteria and viruses that cause the most illnesses, hospitalizations, or deaths in the United States are described below and include:
  • Campylobacter
  • Clostridium perfringens
  • E. coli
  • Listeria
  • Norovirus
  • Salmonella
Other important bacteria and viruses that cause foodborne illness include:

Raw meat can carry life-threatening pathogens, he told them – Salmonella, E coli, Campylobacter, Listeria, Clostridium and norovirus. Pets eating infected meat can become ill themselves or shed pathogens into the environment for potential transmission and harm to others. The biggest threat is Salmonella. It causes the most hospital admissions and around 200 deaths per year in the UK. It can only be killed by heat.

https://skeptvet.com/Blog/2018/02/yet-another-study-shows-the-real-dangers-of-raw-diets-for-dogs/

There is evidence of risk in feeding raw, including infectious disease, parasites, and injury from raw bones. There is no scientific evidence, only anecdote and dubious theories, to demonstrate any benefits from feeding raw.

A new study has recently been published which adds to the already considerable evidence of risk from infectious disease.

Martinez-Anton, L., Marenda, M., Firestone, S.M., Bushell, R.N., Child, G., Hamilton, A.I., Long, S.N. and Le Chevoir, M.A.R. (2018), Investigation of the Role of Campylobacter Infection in Suspected Acute Polyradiculoneuritis in Dogs. J Vet Intern Med, 32: 352–360.

Salmonella and E. coli are pathogens commonly found in raw meat.
The words “raw diet” brings thoughts of uncooked vegetables and meat to mind. The raw food craze has been popular among people, but is it safe to feed our animals a raw diet too?
According to Dr. Jack Herrmann, a veterinarian on faculty at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in Urbana, as well as the director of the college’s Center for One Health Illinois, pet owners should know the risks when feeding raw meat to their animals.
Salmonella and E. coli are pathogens—infectious agents that can cause disease or illness—commonly found in raw meat. The best way to prevent illness from these pathogens in animals and people is to cook meat at a high enough temperature to kill pathogens.

Can I train my Exotic Legends Bengal to walk on a leash?

YES - THESE ARE ALL PICTURES OF EXOTIC LEGENDS BENGALS ON A HARNESS AND LEASH

This site has great pointers to help you train your Bengal
https://www.thesprucepets.com/how-to-leash-train-cats-551823

Choosing a Collar or Harness for Leash Training Your Cat
Collars are good for cats for identification purposes and to hang a bell on, but not great to use with a leash. Cats are built differently than dogs and they can easily slip out of a collar that is attached to a leash. Harnesses are much more secure for walking a cat with, especially when you are first training it.

Choose a harness that fits securely and is snug but not too tight on your cat. You can check to make sure it isn’t too tight by sliding two fingers underneath the harness. If two fingers can slide between the harness and your cat, then it should fit correctly. But if you can fit more fingers or fewer fingers under the harness, it may be too loose or tight.

Harnesses that are specifically designed for cats work best. If a harness is uncomfortable, your cat will only think about how poorly it fits or how difficult it is to walk in. Harnesses that are made from a soft material, cut in a way to allow a cat to walk normally, and that are lightweight are your best options for your cat. Make sure the harness you choose also has a D-ring securely attached to the back of it as well since this is where you will attach the leash.

Choosing a Leash for Your Cat
Lightweight leashes that are 4 to 6 feet long are ideal for leash training cats of all sizes. Retractable leashes and leashes that are longer are okay to use once a cat is trained but stick to a manageable length and leash weight at first.

Let Your Cat Adjust to the Harness
Once your cat has an appropriately sized harness on, allow it to get used to it. Let your cat sniff it and give it treats while it does so.

Keep in mind that the length of time that it takes for a cat to get used to wearing a harness will vary from cat to cat. A harness may not bother your cat at all or it may take several hours or days for your cat to adjust. Be sure to praise your cat and give it treats while it has the harness on. Do not leave the harness on for more than a few minutes if your cat is frightened by it, but increase the time it spends wearing the harness each time you put it on. Work your way up to leaving the harness on for an hour. If your cat is walking around normally while wearing the harness, then you are ready to take the next step in leash training.

Let Your Cat Adjust to the Leash
If your cat doesn’t mind wearing the harness, go ahead and attach the leash to the D-ring. While still in the safety of your home, allow your cat to drag the leash around to get used to being attached to it. If your cat is easily spooked, you may want to instead attach the leash and hold it while still allowing your cat to move about freely. Some cats are scared of a leash dragging behind them and you wouldn’t want to cause your cat to be immediately frightened of the leash. Once your cat is used to the leash being connected to it, you can advance to the outdoors.

Teach Your Cat to Walk on a Leash
Continue to hold the leash and let your cat walk freely outside. Coax your cat to walk where you want it to walk using treats or toys. Don’t pull your cat by the leash, but a gentle tug to redirect its attention is okay. You should continuously praise your cat with treats if it is walking in the direction you seek.

Over time your cat will get used to the sights, sounds, smells, and experiences of the outdoors and will be safe in its harness and leash. This may take several days or weeks for some cats, while others will be more comfortable right away.

Make Sure Your Cat Is Safe
Cats that spend time outdoors are more likely to get fleas, ticks, heartworms, and other parasites. Discuss preventative options with your vet to make sure your cat is safe and protected while enjoying time outside.

Stay away from things that may startle your cat, such as busy roads and barking dogs, while outside. Even though a cat may be trained to walk on a leash, different situations may scare it and cause it to be afraid of going on a future walk.

THIS TAKE MANY HOURS EACH AND EVERY DAY





Can we come to your home to see the cattery

Due to COVID 19 - and since we are an LLC - Because of Health/Liability/Insurance reasons we do not allow individuals to come to our home. (Liability Insurance for a LLC Cattery is VERY expensive and we do not want to have to raise the prices of our Bengals to off set the insurance fees)

We can Face-time and Zoom any time that you would like.

We can deliver your kitten to you or meet you at an agreed upon location. (Depending on distance - a travel fee maybe added to the price of your kitten/cat).

We also offer a DOOR TO DOOR service (if it is to far for you to travel you can use a flight nanny (you would have to get their price from them)or we can deliver, for a fee of .56 cents a mile (Current IRS Rate) (again, this depends on the distance)

We also have recommendations posted on our site.

We also have YEARLY inspections from a licensed Veterinarian - to ensure that we are taking care of the cats properly. We post our verification/awards from CFA and/or TICA of the inspection results, under our CERTIFICATES AND AWARDS tab - on our website.

WE RECEIVED THE 2021 - 2022 & 2020 - 2021 CFA Cattery of Excellence award - The Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA) has a program whereby a cattery may obtain certification from the CFA for adhering to a standard of care of their cats. We are proud to say, we have received the distinction of "Cattery of Excellence" every year since 2020 when we first applied.

WE RECEIVED THE 2020 - 2021 TICA Outstanding Cattery
TICA'S EXPLANATION OF THE CERTIFICATES - "In keeping with the Mission and Policy Statements of TICA, the Outstanding Cattery Program has adopted the Cattery Evaluation Program and the Outstanding Cattery Code of Ethics as requirements for achieving the TICA Outstanding Cattery certificate. The goal is to provide education, information, and guidance to breeders so that they are aware of proper husbandry and cattery management techniques. Evaluator The actual cattery evaluation must be done by a licensed small animal veterinarian. The breeder may engage his/her regular veterinarian for this task. It is important for the veterinarian to place emphasis on the overall impression of health and well-being of the cats in the cattery during the evaluation and decision-making process. Often cattery set-ups involve the entire household. For example, bedrooms and bathrooms may be utilized for birthing and/or isolation areas of the cattery. In addition, it is important for the evaluator to allow for the odor of any whole male cat in residence. However, it is not allowable to experience the stale odor of cats permeating the residence. It is hoped that the dialogue between the veterinarian and breeder will be an educational experience. Breeder The breeder is encouraged to use the Cattery Evaluation Form as a guide for self-evaluation of his/her cattery prior to contacting a veterinarian. It is hoped that this method will allow the breeder to correct any deficiencies before the actual evaluation. The breeder must be present during the evaluation and scoring process. All fees charged by the veterinarian for this service are to be paid by the breeder. Scoring Method The veterinarian is to complete and score the form in the presence of the breeder. Complete the form by ticking the appropriate box against each of the criteria. Each individual rating of "Excellent" receives 2 points, each "Satisfactory" receives 1 point, and each "unsatisfactory" rating receives 0 points. Any Not Applicable (N/A) rating receives a score of 2 points. Multiply the total number of "excellent" ratings plus "N/A" ratings by 2 and enter this figure on the line following "Excellent". Add the total number of "Satisfactory" ratings and enter this figure on the line following "Satisfactory". Add the two figures together and enter the sum in the appropriate space as the total score. The best possible score is 88 points. A total score of 75 points or more receives an overall "Outstanding" rating and the breeder will be sent a TICA Outstanding Cattery certificate."

 “Well it’s been a whole week since we’ve brought our sweet Nala home, and let me tell you she was SO worth the wait! She’s settled right in and become one of the family. We’re all in LOVE. Here’s our story of her arrival in our home. We were on the waiting list for just under a year but we knew we wanted a Bengal. We haven't been able to have a kitty in our home for several years due allergies. The last kitty we had we actually had to return to the animal shelter due to the allergic reactions one of my children had (severe bloody noses). It was so sad, especially since the kids really bonded with the kitty. It got me reading about cat breeds that are more hypoallergenic and we discovered Bengals. I was delighted to find Exotic Legends and Heather Lewis within a close proximity to our home and even more excited after I spoke with Heather and quickly became aware of her extensive knowledge and love of this breed. 10 months after placing our deposit we brought our sweet kitty home. Despite my understanding of the breed being hypoallergenic I was still a little nervous about what to expect and here we are a week into her in our home and we've had ZERO allergy issues. The big adjustment is getting used to her energy! She's so fun, sweet and loving. It's obvious she was well loved and handled often before she came to us. We're so thankful to have found her and for the many hours of love and dedication Heather pours into her animals. Without hesitation, I'd recommend Exotic Legends to anyone looking to have a Bengal Kitty join their family. “"

 Heather, thank you for providing us with the sweetest Kitten named Priya. We have enjoyed her so much, She sits and sleeps on my husband, Gary's lap along with our 8 lb. Shut Su dog. The are really bonded and play, roll over each other and just have a good time day and night. They snuggle up to each other to sleep, in the cat bed. Neither one is the aggressor, they take turn. Our experience with Heather was Great. She was able to deal with my very impatient husband. Explained what she does before turning your kitten over to you. Which is taking them to the Vet several times for many many test, regarding her heart, illness she might have, etc. Providing her with two separate shots, getting her spaded, getting her Micro-chipped, I know I have left somethings out however Heather provides you with a nice notebook with all results when you pick up your kitten. Our Vet was impress with all the tests done and the results. Heather and her daughter handle's them so that they aren't afraid of people. If you are looking for a Bengal cat, Exotic Legends is the place to go. I highly recommend Exotic Legends and Heather. Be Patent, Heather has been in the Business for many years and a lot of people are on her list to receive a beautiful kitten, Her reputation as a breeder and knowledge about Bengal cats proceeds her and is outstanding. I was impressed. We waited several months but it is worth the wait. PRIYA IS BEAUTIFUL. Thank you again, Gary and Linda Goodburn"

 "Ms.Heather is wonderful! First off I want to say that the long wait is worth while! You won't regret getting a Kitty from her! She cares about the Cats and kittens with her soul it's not about the money for her. She is well knowledgeable about the cats. She will answer all your questions and also give you advice. Ms.Heather and her daughter took really good care of our Little Boy Mufasa. She would send us pictures and video updates on how he was doing. She also had all Mufasa's papers neatly organized in a binder. When we picked him up he barely meowed during the long car ride back home. He is doing great adjusting with our family. He likes to sleep with us. Mufasa is really active and loves to play. Again you will not regret the long wait or getting a Purrfect Kitty from Ms.Heather! Thank you so much for taking good care of him."

 It's been almost two weeks now since we brought home sweet little Coco Chanel (Coco) & let me just say what a little sweetheart she is!!! Coco has been the BEST addition to our family. Working with Heather & waiting for about a year and a half for her was well worth it! Coco is social, playful, fearless & stunningly beautiful! Coco is becoming best friends with the dogs, which was quite the shock to us, but it just goes to show how well these kittens are raised and taken care of while still with their mom and Heather. The attention to detail, information and care that Heather puts into her Bengal's is incredible, I would (and already have!) recommend her cattery to anyone looking for a Bengal. We can't thank you enough for the perfect little princess, she is SO LOVED! The Close Family"

 I have had my sweet darling Toast for about a month and a half now and I can’t imagine life without her! She is curious, beautiful, and so soft. She is easy to train, learning to walk on a leash, follows me around, and sits by my side all the time. Thanks to Heather at Exotic Legends Bengals for raising such a perfect kitten, I am able to have such a lovely Bengal join my family! Besides Toast's stunning exterior, I am reassured that she is also a healthy kitten with the meticulous testing and knowledge that Heather has. Heather is very communicative from before the kitten is born, while the kittens are growing up with her litter mates (we even FaceTimed them!), to now, while she shares important information about bengals on social media and answers any questions I have about what's the best way to raise little Toast. Looking for the right breeder is a big decision to make that impacts your Bengals whole life. I am so glad I decided to go with Heather who lives on the other Coast. From the first email I sent her 2 years ago to now, I have never regretted anything! Thank you Heather for your devotion and passion to breeding the best and healthiest Bengal companions we can get. You can watch an amazing Exotic Legends kitten grow up on Toast's instagram: @toast_the_bengal"

 I don’t know how to put in words how grateful I am to Heather Lewis, for all her knowledge with Bengal cats and helping me make my decision in getting my Beautiful little girl Erza. I did a lot of online research on how to find a Bengal breeder and came across several breeders, after many phone calls to the different Catteries there was know doubt my decision was to go with Exotic Legends. After being on the waiting list for 3 months I finally got the call from Heather that there was a little girl awaiting for a new home, when I took one look at her i know doubt she was going to be mine. Heather was in on constant contact with me, posting pictures and videos of Erza's first 3 months. When the time came to pick her up I was able to get on the next available flight from Boston to Washington to final meet her and bring Erza to her new home. Erza is doing amazing and has adjusted so well to our family. She is very determined, so mischievous and a whole lot of fun and laughs. Erza has brought so much joy to our family and she is so so loved. If you are reading all these wonderful recommendations and are at the point of making a decision, I can honestly say you won't be disappointed. My family and I are considering on getting a second Bengal and will definitely be getting the cat from Exotic Legends. Thank you Heather You are such a joyful person to work with. May God richly bless you and your catter Robin, Jessie, Josiah, Jesse and Erza B"

 Dear Heather Thank you for all that you have done to unite us with our baby, Kobe. He is a sweet boy who is smart, loving, and affectionate. Kobe has adapted very well into this family. He loves to play and knows how to sense the mood. At night when we go to sleep, when both my husband and I are in bed, Kobe knows it’s his bedtime too. He comes says good night, sneaks behind the curtain and jumps onto his balcony and sleeps. I would definitely recommend adopting your new family member from Heather. She would send us photo and video updates while Kobe was in her care and happily answers all of our questions. Kobe is just the perfect member for our family."

 We are so grateful to Heather for bringing Ares into our life. He's beautiful, loving, full of energy and we fell in love with him right away. He jumps super high, fetches a ball but also has chill moments when he just cuddles with us binge-watching The Walking Dead. Heather did an amazing job of socializing him since he was pretty much a sweetheart from day one. I did a lot of research into Bengal breeders, and Heather's integrity and commitment to testing and professionalism are far beyond what others were doing. She was the only one I found that detailed out exactly all the DNA testing she did and the results on her website. As a detail-oriented person, I loved that! It can take a while to get a Bengal, but it's totally worth the wait. Plus, Heather makes the process easy, she's always available for questions or concerns and is someone you can really trust. We're thinking about getting another Bengal and we'd definitely contact Heather to help us. Thank you Heather!"

 I couldn’t be happier with Heather’s program. I’m allergic to cats and spent a lot of time researching catteries specializing in low-allergen breeds; Exotic Legends was by far the most reputable, transparent, and fairly-priced. Catalina, aka Cat, is the first cat I have owned. I’m very glad for the testing conducted by Heather, as I know she doesn’t have any genetic issues. I’m also thankful for her help throughout the entire process, from first reaching out to after I brought Cat home. As a new cat owner, her supportive was very helpful and made me feel much more relaxed. Cat adjusted quickly to her new home, and is a happy, playful girl who loves being around people. She was litter-box trained when I got her and hasn’t had any behavioral or health issues. She’s very smart; my dad has her trained to climb in a cardboard box whenever he says “box ride” so he can take her on “flights” around the room. I have a large crate with her bed and blanket in it and she puts herself to bed at night. I couldn’t recommend Exotic Legends more!"

 My name is Kristina Tanis and I write this letter with high regards for Heather Lewis of Exotic Legends cattery. After the loss of our Siamese, Kiki, my husband and I began researching a wide variety of breeds to see which would be the best fit for us. We were both quickly drawn to Bengals because of their gorgeous markings and reputation for being very adventurous and social. From there, our search led us to the website and Facebook page for Exotic Legends where we found posts, photos, and videos of a variety of adorable Bengal cats and kittens. As luck would have it, there was a precious silver female (we named her Ash) in want of a home. Neither or us had ever dealt with a cattery before so we were not sure what to expect. Thankfully, Heather was easy to reach via Facebook Messenger and quick to answer all of our questions and set up a meeting. Within a few days, we were able to officially make little Ash part of our family. Just two months later, we could not be more in love with Ash. She has a very extroverted personality. More often than not, she is waiting by the door when we get home from work and refuses to leave our side—if we are showering, cooking, or just sitting on the sofa watching TV, she wants to be part of it! In between cuddle sessions, she also enjoys rampaging around our apartment—playing with her toys, climbing and jumping from surface to surface, and getting into a bit of mischief when we aren’t looking. My husband and I can’t wait for spring and summer so we can take her outside for adventures around the city, hikes in the mountains, and long walks along the beach. 😊 Ash is not only a delight at home, but she travels very well and is quick to warm up to new people. For example, we recently took her to Urban Animal for her check-up. The staff was pleasantly surprised and complimentary of her demeanor while being examined and receiving her shots, commenting that she is much more relaxed and cooperative than most other Bengals they have seen. Although owning a Bengal has been a new experience for us, we feel incredibly lucky to have found Exotic Legends. The care and concern Heather shows for her cats and kittens is what sets her apart from other catteries in the area. When she welcomes you to the Exotic Legends family, she means it. Just this Christmas, Heather hosted a Facebook photo contest on her page offering a prize to the winner. When little Ash won, we were blown away when we received a cat tree in the mail. She will undoubtedly spend countless hours playing and lounging on the tree, all thanks to Heather’s generosity! We absolutely love our little Ash and are thrilled to have the opportunity to join the Exotic Legends family!"

 FIRST off, we highly recommend Heather “Exotic Legends Bengals” as your Bengal cattery! After several searches for a Bengal cattery and several calls around the state, we came across Heathers website. We gave her a call around Christmas and her enthusiastic conversation was very refreshing! She had a litter that was born on the 22nd and was open for us to see them; Though we couldn't hold them which we totally understood and respected. Heather explained her love, care and socializing of her Bengals. We just loved the entire straight forward experience. Over the next 8 weeks - weekly, we sent Heather a text for a picture of our baby. Like clockwork, we received several pictures as he grew! Finally the day came and Gatsby became a member of our family! Fully potty trained and not the least bit nervous of his new surroundings. It was obvious Gatsby was beautify socialized by Heathers utmost care and love. As I write this, Gatsby has been with us now for 4 weeks. His markings are coming is just spectacular while his disposition is very sweet along with tremendous fun energy! He begs to get in the shower, loves the sinks and even attempts the human bathroom. He runs, chases and plays well with our two small dogs and it’s obvious who now runs the roost! He loves to hang-out with me in my office all day and even tries to surf the web with the mouse… LOL! To be honest, we think he is a well-trained dog disguised in a cat body! He is awesome! And since the first day home he sleeps with us all night long. Thank you Heather and to your family for the love you give to your Bengals!"

 Having worked in pet rescue and kitten fostering for almost 20 years I was a bit hesitant to buy from a breeder having heard some pretty bad stories, but my fiance and I really wanted a baby bengal. I spent a long time researching catteries and really liked what I discovered about Heather and Exotic Legends. I wanted a small in-home breeder that spends qualty time with not only the kittens, but parents as well. Heather welcomed me to her home to meet the mother and babies and I was amazed by the friendliness of the mother cat, Bella. I was able to walk right up and pet her as she talked and talked to me. Holding my boy for the first time at that meeting I found him to be plump, fluffy, clean and calm and decided to reserve him. Heather sent us pictures as we anxiously waited for him to be old enough to come home. When she was confident he was eating dry food, drinking and using the litter box she took him in for a wellness check/1st vacines etc. As he and his litter mates were healthy Heather delivered him to our home that weekend as we'd requested. As she pulled him out of his carrier and plopped him in my fiance's hands our new baby immediately started to purr. It seems like he's barely stopped purring since. He is the happiest most relaxed kitten I have ever come across. No hiding under the bed, startling at loud noises or any of the other typical frightened reactions you often see from kittens in a new environment. Heather did such a great job raising a very self-confident, sweet, loving, happy little guy. We highly recommend Heather and her kittens. Already passed along her card to our family Dr."

 I looked for a long time and did a ton of research to find an excellent breeder in Washington State. Heather was amazing to work with. She was responsive to all my questions and kept in close contact with me. She provided me with documentation regarding PRA and PK negative results (not even carriers of course)! She also gave me genetic results on possible color combinations that might result from pairings. Her contract was well written protecting the buyer, the breeder and the kitten. My kitten (Nebit) is gorgeous and more than I could have hoped for. He is a stunning snow Bengal with beautiful markings and rosettes. Nebit is a calm, friendly, healthy, confident kitten. I highly recommend Exotic Legends Bengals for anyone looking to welcome this enchanting breed of cat into your home."

 “Having never owned a Bengal before and being aware of typical Bengal traits, we weren’t exactly sure what to expect behavior-wise. Our gold Sophie is only 14 weeks, but she has already developed a very loving personality. She loves sit on our lap and snuggle after breakfast (she’d do that all day if we let her!). She purrs every time you pick her up or even just walk by. Our biggest surprise was to find out that she loves sleeping under the covers right next to you! She loves people and we are thrilled to have such a loving and smart cat in our family! If you are looking for an intelligent and loving Bengal, we highly recommend Exotic Legends Bengals!”"

 I purchased my Bengal kitten from Exotic Legends on December 30th. I couldn’t be more pleased with him. It was very important to me to have a kitten that was well socialized and adaptable. I have three very busy Corgis and I didn’t want a cat that would be fearful and routinely hide. My little Finnegan is bold and friendly to the dogs and sweet and loving to me. He spends a lot of time playing with my youngest Corgi. I couldn’t be more pleased. Adapting to my household was nearly seamless. If you are considering adding a Bengal kitten to your household I highly recommend Exotic Legends."

 After looking through numerous websites and contacting numerous breeders I came across Exotic Legends website! From the first conversation I had with Heather, I knew this was going to be a good fit; she answered every question (which was quite a few since my family is a first time Bengal owner) and was so attentive throughout the process. You could tell she really cares about her cats and kittens! Our kitten, Penny, is AMAZING! She is loving, playful, and of course GORGEOUS. I would highly recommend Exotic Legends if you are looking for a Bengal kitten."

 My Husband takes Hunter to work with him, on the days that I am working. He's a wonderful Traveler. Sleeps all night, never wakes up. he is a good boy. He fetches. He sits when I give him a treat - before I give him the command. Smart kitty. Gets "off" when told - loves tag and peek-a-boo. Wonderful beautiful additional to our family. I'm so happy I found you"

 Wonderful Bengals and Breeder, very professional, great communication and support to any of your Bengal related questions. The kittens themselves have beautiful patterns and great temperament. I highly recommend Exoticlegends to anyone looking for quality Bengal to add to their family"

 She's Gorgeous!!! She is absolutely amazing. Loves to cuddle, cannot stay out of the sink (when she hears water she comes running), and will steal and play with every straw she can find (even if that means getting it out of the sink) lol"

 We loved working with Heather and exotic legends cattery. My son is high functioning autistic and suffers from depression. Titan was the answer to our prayers. Heather has been so helpful answering questions she is on her way to being a veterinarian. Her responsiveness has been such a gift. We highly recommend Heather and we know you will be as thrilled as we are with your bengal. Knowing the parents did not have 50 genetic diseases puts our concerns to rest that Titan will live a long and healthy life in our care. Thank you so much heather!!"

 Not the best picture of Teddy, but it shows how big he is. His tail is my favorite part of him and the biggest reason I decided to get Bengal cats. Thank you Heather Lewis for breeding such amazing cats."

 We are happy with Leo, he is playful and healthy. We are also happy with Exotic Bengal. Heather is very helpful and informative. We highly recommend Exotic Legends Bengals, if you are looking for Bengal cat. We love our Bengal and would love to go back to Exotic Legends Bengal if we decide to get more."

2021 - 2022 TICA Outstanding Cattery

TICA (The International Cat Association)

TICA'S EXPLANATION OF THE CERTIFICATES - "In keeping with the Mission and Policy Statements of TICA, the Outstanding Cattery Program has adopted the Cattery Evaluation Program and the Outstanding Cattery Code of Ethics as requirements for achieving the TICA Outstanding Cattery certificate. The goal is to provide education, information, and guidance to breeders so that they are aware of proper husbandry and cattery management techniques. Evaluator The actual cattery evaluation must be done by a licensed small animal veterinarian. The breeder may engage his/her regular veterinarian for this task. It is important for the veterinarian to place emphasis on the overall impression of health and well-being of the cats in the cattery during the evaluation and decision-making process. Often cattery set-ups involve the entire household. For example, bedrooms and bathrooms may be utilized for birthing and/or isolation areas of the cattery. In addition, it is important for the evaluator to allow for the odor of any whole male cat in residence. However, it is not allowable to experience the stale odor of cats permeating the residence. It is hoped that the dialogue between the veterinarian and breeder will be an educational experience. Breeder The breeder is encouraged to use the Cattery Evaluation Form as a guide for self-evaluation of his/her cattery prior to contacting a veterinarian. It is hoped that this method will allow the breeder to correct any deficiencies before the actual evaluation. The breeder must be present during the evaluation and scoring process. All fees charged by the veterinarian for this service are to be paid by the breeder. Scoring Method The veterinarian is to complete and score the form in the presence of the breeder. Complete the form by ticking the appropriate box against each of the criteria. Each individual rating of "Excellent" receives 2 points, each "Satisfactory" receives 1 point, and each "unsatisfactory" rating receives 0 points. Any Not Applicable (N/A) rating receives a score of 2 points. Multiply the total number of "excellent" ratings plus "N/A" ratings by 2 and enter this figure on the line following "Excellent". Add the total number of "Satisfactory" ratings and enter this figure on the line following "Satisfactory". Add the two figures together and enter the sum in the appropriate space as the total score. The best possible score is 88 points. A total score of 75 points or more receives an overall "Outstanding" rating and the breeder will be sent a TICA Outstanding Cattery certificate." https://tica.org/owners-breeders/catteries/outstanding-cattery-program

BACK YARD BREEDERS - WATCH OUT


 BACK YARD BREEDERS -

You can be a show breeder and be a backyard breeder too.

 I WILL FIGHT FOR CATS

FROM A CATTERY THAT I HAVE SAVED

 WHY TESTING IS SO IMPORTANT

BREEDER ARE SELLING DISEASED CATS AND KITTENS AND NOT TELLING CLIENTS ---- IF YOU BUY A CAT OR KITTEN FROM A CATTERY THAT DOES NOT DO AND SHOW YOU TEST RESULTS - WALK AWAY - SAVE YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY FROM HEART ACHES AND EXPENSIVE VET BILLS AND MEDICATIONS AND SPECIAL DIETS. DO NOT LET WHAT HAPPENED TO THESE PEOPLE HAPPEN TO YOU

 TESTING IS VERY IMPORTANT

*** If you do not run these test, you are a backyard breeder. - DO NOT LET WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS LADY HAPPEN TO YOU ONLY RUNNING PK, PRA, AND HCM SCREEN IS NOT ENOUGH -----

 PK, PRA, AND HCM SCREENING IS NOT ENOUGH

We as responsible breeders need to save this breed not destroy it.
