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.

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.

Exotic Legends Bengals is a small in-home cattery where all our cats are raised as part of the family and live in our home with us. We are registered with TICA, CFA, and TIBCS. Exotic Legends Bengals was started as a way to have an exquisite animal become a therapeutic pet for those with disabilities (both of my children are on the Autism Spectrum). Our Bengal kittens are handled and cuddled from the moment they are born, to make the best socialized most lovable Bengal kittens possible. They love to play fetch and can be leashed-harness trained and most of all they love water. We have many Bengal kittens (cats) that are used as therapy support cats, both personally and on military bases. All of our Bengal cats and kittens are treated as though they are not only our loving pets, but our family members. We pride ourselves with a clean and healthy environment for our Bengal kittens and cats.
